Your College Journey Starts Here!

Weekend of Welcome (WOW) is a required comprehensive educational and social program designed to prepare incoming first-year students to succeed at UW-Superior. WOW provides students an important opportunity to meet other students, explore campus and prepare to start the year through a variety of sessions, events and traditions. We are so excited to welcome our newest Yellowjackets to campus this fall!

Once you arrive, your Team Leader (an upperclassmen) will help you navigate WoW and getting started on campus. The countdown is on and we can’t wait!
