Huskies First Four: Days


Huskies First Four Days is St. Cloud State's 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.

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 classroom

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, Aug. 24. 

Condensed Orientation Program

St. Cloud State also welcomes students who are commuting or have other responsibilities 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. 

We offer three-hour Condensed Orientations that combine our SCSU 101 presentation, required Community through Diversity workshop (RESP 100), and other orientation programming. 

Programs include the opportunity to meet with academic advisors, secure student ID cards, tour campus, pick up textbooks, and more! 

Additional programming is scheduled for our Veterans and Military-Connected students, Non-Traditional Students, and Student-Parents is also available. 

You may also find the following resources helpful in your transition to St. Cloud State:
