Wildcat Welcome 2013
Wildcat Welcome 2013
Welcome to a new year at the University of Arizona! Whether you are a brand new student or this is your last year on campus, Wildcat Welcome is here to help you start the year off right! For ten action-packed days we help you get settled on campus, make new friends, find your way around, find resources to make you successful, explore different groups and communities, and learn what it means to be a Wildcat.
Events You Don't Want to Miss
Kick off the year with the Wildcat Fiesta experience! Students and families will be welcomed to the University community with great food, entertainment and special guests from across campus. The Wildcat Fiesta will be held on Thursday, August 22, 2013 at 6:00 pm.
UA Clicks is a required program for all new Wildcats which helps you to learn what to expect on the first day of class. We will be introducing you to the systems and technology your faculty will use in and out of the classroom and you will get tips on what to do to be prepared for college life. Your assigned UA clicks session is based on your academic college, so check your CatMail for details on where and when to attend UA Clicks on Friday, August 23, 2013. And don't forget your CatCard! We will be checking you in to the event, and you'll need the card to be marked as present. We will post a schedule closer to the event.
New Student Convocation

You'll hear from the University of Arizona President, Provost, VIce Presidents of Student Affairs and more as they welcome you to your first semester on campus. Wilbur, Wilma, the Cheer Team and Pep Band will also join in on the fun to teach you about UA pride and traditions. And whatever you do, don't leave early, the event continues into the night as we celebrate the start of the new year! Oh, and did we mention the free t-shirt?
