Begin the semester prepared and ready for success!
New students are expected to complete the orientation.
WolfPack Welcome On Demand Orientation
The self-directed WolfPack Welcome orientation is available on-demand. You must create a new student account on the site to get started. Completing each section provides opportunities to earn school supplies, a free planner, and gift cards. Once the program is completed, you will be sent a free Madison College t-shirt.
LIVE Online Discussion Session Schedule
The live online discussion sessions (available again this fall) will provide you with the opportunity to connect with your fellow students and meet with college staff. Each session is focused on a specific area of interest. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and gain insight from our returning students. There are also sessions for your family/support persons and will focus on how to best support the college student in their life.
