Huskies First Four

Welcome students

Huskies First Four: Days


Your first days on campus are the perfect time to meet people and get to know campus.

We know how important the first days and weeks of the semester are to students and their success.

We encourage all new students to continue their participation in events to meet other students, learn more about St. Cloud State and find your way to connect with the Huskies community.

Traditional Four Day program


 Our traditional program offers four days of activities designed to help new students get acclimated to the St. Cloud State campus and community. Some events are required for new students and some are available to help you meet other new students and familiarize you with all that St. Cloud State has to offer! 

  • Student tour guides will be available to help you find your classrooms and tour campus
  • Academic advisers are available to help you review transfer credits, spring course schedules and make schedule changes, if necessary.
  • Health & wellness activities are offered to help you stay active 
  • Fun, social events are held each night 
  • Academic orientation will help you to understand what's expected of students inside the classrom

All students who attend will receive their official St. Cloud State orientation T-shirt, luncheon tickets, and opportunities to settle into campus before the semester starts on Monday, August 26. 

Condensed Orientation Program

St. Cloud State also welcomes students who are commuting or have other responsiblities that may prevent them for participating in our full four day orientation program. We host multiple condensed orientation programs that allow you to gather the information needed for a successful start to your St. Cloud State career.
