We can’t wait to see you for Welcome Week! 

Welcome Week is our celebration of all of our new Pioneers, focusing on:

  • Getting you settled into the campus environment
  • Providing information you need to start the semester
  • Lots of fun and exciting activities that will help you get engaged with campus life and develop your own community

Keep checking back here for more information on the schedule of events, answers to frequently asked questions, and helpful reminders for starting the semester off right! 

Schedule of Events

We’re just getting started! There will be activities added throughout the summer, including Academic Success Seminars, First Year Experience Class meetings, and many Open Houses. Stay tuned!

Other Activities You Can Explore:

  • Play Disc Golf – we have a disc golf course on campus! Get a team together for some fun and games. 
  • Explore the campus Wellness Walk – The Wellness Walk officially launched last year. Check it out and use it as one of your tools to stay well. 
  • Do some Self-Guided Main Street Platteville Exploration – see the Platteville Community Guide that was waiting for you in your room and walk or bike to Platteville Main Street. The local businesses would love to see you! 
  • Hike or bike out to the “M” and walk the steps – Take on this tradition that holds a special place in the hearts of the Pioneer community 
  • Try out Platteville’s local hiking, biking and running trails – Another way to get familiar with the city of Platteville is to take advantage of the extensive system of trails the community has to offer 
  • Use Platteville public transportation for any trips to local merchants for those forgotten items.

We can’t wait to see you! Please remember, things are changing quickly right now, and our planning will be ongoing. Keep checking back here for updates on Welcome Week.
