In-Person & On-Campus
At the in-person Howl Days, you will be on campus for a presentation, campus tour, and academic advising.
You should plan to be on campus for about 4 hours in order to get the most out of your experience. Session size is limited to 40 students.
Virtual, Live on Zoom
Join us via Zoom! The Wolfpack will share a presentation, lead a virtual tour, and introduce you to some of the first year advisors.
If you are not able to find a day and time that works for you to join an in-person or live virtual session, this format is for you. You will receive access to the virtual orientation modules so that you can learn about the university at your own pace. Be sure to connect with First Year Advising separately.
