Freshmen get first taste of college

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) - Hundreds of teenagers got their first taste of college life Monday on the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse campus.

Incoming freshmen and their parents participated in freshman orientation activities throughout the day Monday. Students had their pictures taken for their student IDs, learned more about which classes to enroll in this fall, explored meal and parking options on campus, and toured both the campus and residence halls. Parents had their own informational sessions.

UW-L Admissions Director Corey Sjoquist said the most important aspect of freshman orientation is creating a relationship with their academic adviser, the person who will help guide them through their major and help them choose which classes to take each semester.

Bailey Slater, an incoming freshman from Kenosha, said the informational session on finances and course selection were most beneficial to her as she prepares to become an early education teacher.

UW-L will host seven freshmen orientations in June, inviting nearly 2,000 students to campus. The first day of class this fall is September 2.
