The University of Wisconsin-Superior will get its 123rd school year off to an exciting start with a host of activities to welcome students and faculty back to campus.

"It's such an exciting time to be a Yellowjacket," said UW-Superior Chancellor Dr. Renee Wachter. "For the second year in a row, we're seeing an impressive increase in freshmen enrollment and transfer students. We'll also have the largest and most diverse population of international students our university has ever hosted, with students from more than 45 countries. We look forward to welcoming all the new and returning students and faculty. It's going to be another historic year at UW-Superior."

The All Campus Opening for faculty and staff will take place on Tuesday, Aug. 30, from 9 a.m. to noon in the  Yellowjacket Union Great Room with discussion about improving campus climate and retention.

Thursday, Sept. 1, will mark the arrival of Move In Day for new and returning students returning to the UW-Superior residence halls. Assistance will be available from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.

The day is also the beginning of Weekend of Welcome – a three-day orientation program for new freshmen, which includes a variety of events and activities to welcome and assist new students with the transition to UW-Superior.

The New Student Celebration will take place at 3 p.m. in the Great Room of the Yellowjacket Union. This will mark students' formal entrance into the academic world as students learn about UW-Superior's history and the importance of the liberal arts.

On Friday, Sept. 2, the All Campus Picnic and New Beginnings Lunch for New Students will take place from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Yellowjacket Union. This provides the opportunity for students, faculty and staff to meet in a relaxed atmosphere and discuss academic programs and students' plans.
