Huskies First Four

Welcome students

Huskies First Four: Days


Huskies First Four Days is St. Cloud State's required official orientation program for new students prior to fall and spring semesters. 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 you and your success.

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

We offer multiple program tracks to meet the needs of our diverse student body, including in-person and online orientation program options.

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 classroom
  • Activities to help you meet roommates and those living in your residence hall

All students who attend will receive their official St. Cloud State orientation T-shirt and opportunities to settle into campus before the semester starts.

Required Events: Convocation, Academic Orientation, SCSU 101, and Husky Stories.

Self-Paced Track (online option)

Our online (self-paced) orientation track will take place in a D2L Brightspace course called "Huskies 1st 4: New Student Orientation." Students will have the opportunity to explore campus resources, review the full orientation schedule, connect with Orientation Leaders, and more! 

Students who choose this track are welcome to attend any events in the live track orientation on campus.
