Starting on Aug. 29, CALS began welcoming students to campus with orientation and other activities for new and returning students. The first undergraduates to arrive were students involved in CALS QuickStart, a summer program designed to prepare incoming CALS first-year students to succeed in college. Dorm move in for all UW–Madison students started on Aug. 30. The first day of classes was Sept. 8. More than 525 new undergraduates are expected to join CALS this fall.
The photos below show a few of the CALS back-to-school activities that took place as part of the university’s “Wisconsin Welcome” program. A full album of photos is available on CALS Flickr. (Note: Dane County and UW–Madison currently require masks to be worn indoors, but not outdoors, as shown in these photos.)
