University of Evansville

Orientation

Summer Orientation and Academic Registration (SOAR) begins the process for becoming a UE student.

Welcome Week

Welcomers

Welcome Week is a program coordinated by a group of energetic students called orientation leaders (OLs) who want your first week at the University of Evansville to be exciting and fun. This program includes concerts, food, volunteer opportunities, games, and much more. All new students arrive at the University four days before classes begin for this fun-filled event. Students will be divided into small groups identified by their First-Year Seminar (FYS) class and will be assigned to an OL. The OL will guide students through the transition into college. This program is required for all entering freshmen. Students will be mailed more detailed information about Welcome Week in late July.

Registration and check-in for Welcome Week

All traditional incoming freshmen are invited and expected to attend Welcome Week, which will be held August 22-25, 2015. Traditional freshmen do not need to pre-register for this event. (Transfer students may opt to attend Welcome Week by pre-registering at STAR or contact the Center for Student Engagement at 812-488-2371. International students may opt to attend Welcome Week by contacting the International Services and Cultural Engagement office at 812-488-2279 to pre-register.)

WELCOME WEEK KICKS OFF IN

Check-in for Welcome Week will be held on Saturday, August 22, 2015, from 3:00-5:00 p.m. CST in Memorial Plaza, located just behind Olmsted Administration Hall. Note: Rain location is in Ridgway University Center.

All freshmen are required to check in for Welcome Week. At check-in, students will receive their schedule of events, meal tickets, and a campus map. Students may also download an electronic map to a smart phone by downloading the Ellucian app.

Meet the Orientation Leaders (OLs)

You might have met some of our OLs when you were on campus for summer orientation. These students were selected as OLs because they are energetic, informed, and ready to help as you get started at UE. When you check in, you'll be placed in a small group of freshmen with an OL as the leader. Together, you'll attend activities that are designed to help you make yourself home on campus. Get to know the OLs by checking out their fun profiles!
