Winter Advising & Orientation

Winter Advising & Orientation (Winter A&O) is for new first-year (freshmen), transfer, and postbaccalaureate students and supports your transition to campus with an academic advising and campus orientation program. Winter A&O offers a streamlined process for new students to meet with campus staff to learn about critical campus and advising resources, receive academic advising support to build class schedules, and prepare for the class registration process. You’ll also have time in the day to visit the Associated Students Bookstore and other campus resource offices and support services.
