UW will help new students “Saddle Up” for fall semester – Sheridan Media


The University of Wyoming has announced an effort to instill a sense of community and belonging right from the start of the student experience at the university. UW will reveal its Saddle Up program this fall.

The week-long list will provide incoming students with a realistic preview of university life, with an emphasis on increasing student success rates.

Starting August 14, and running through 19, 2022, Saddle Up will give students a look at the academic classroom experience, including class participation, homework, fitness and wellness time, college contact time, study time and key skills sessions . This programme, which is mandatory for incoming students, will replace previous incoming student activities such as Orientation or Cowboy Connect.

Participation in this experience will earn students one UW credit hour.

This program is designed for first-year students (beginners or transferees) at UW. It will begin with a new student transition event in the residence halls on Sunday 14th August, followed by a welcome dinner and start of the program. All attendees will be assigned to small groups of eight students, known as “Poke Packs,” each with a current student serving as a mentor and coach.

Existing UW students will provide mentorship and coaching throughout the week. Poke Pack leaders will provide incoming students with advice on academic preparation, including note-taking, time management, course loads, test preparation skills, and exploration of UW’s academic and student support services and experiential learning opportunities.

Parents, prospective students, and incoming students may contact the University of Washington Student Success and Graduation Center at (307) 766-4858 or saddleup@uwyo.edu. A newly developed Saddle Up website also provides more details.
