Help us welcome future Warhawks to campus
Dear campus colleagues,
We wanted to share opportunities during the months of January and February to connect with prospective students, showcase our UW-Whitewater community, and provide information and support to our future Warhawks.
Campus visits are exciting days for prospective students and their families to learn more about the university experience, our campus traditions and what it means to be a Warhawk — and faculty, staff and current students are vital ambassadors in that process. Help us greet future Warhawks and their families by:
- Wearing purple and displaying your name tag
- Answering questions and offering a ready smile
- Making sure your offices, classrooms and campus spaces look their very best
If you know of additional events where prospective students will be visiting, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
