Badger Welcome Groups

Badger Welcome Groups are one way the Center for the First-Year Experience helps provide community and connection to new students. Groups are open to all incoming undergraduate students and strongly encouraged for students not living on-campus or participating in a high impact practice like FIGS or first-year seminars. There is no cost to participate in Wisconsin Welcome activities or groups.

Groups will offer:

  • An opportunity to connect with a Wisconsin Welcome Ambassador (a current undergraduate student) familiar with campus resources.
  • Small group activities
  • Ability to meet and get to know other incoming new students.
  • An opportunity to learn more about campus and the Wisconsin Experience.

Groups will be assigned based on where the student is living for the semester and admit type (freshmen and transfer students). The program will run for three weeks, August 29-September 12, 2021.

August 6, 2021 was the deadline to sign up for the Badger Welcome Groups program. If you missed your chance to sign up, be sure to check out the rest of the upcoming Wisconsin Welcome opportunities!
