Welcome, new engineering students! Although this is just the beginning of your college education, the time will pass more quickly than you realize. In the meantime, enjoy the experience. Savor your college journey, and create memories and friendships that will last long beyond your graduation.

And whether you are here on campus or studying remotely, I am very excited that you are part of the College of Engineering! View a welcome from me, as well as messages from two of our student leaders, in the video below.

And, don’t forget to join the virtual Chancellor’s convocation, where you’ll hear from Chancellor Blank, student speaker Laura Downer, and other UW-Madison leaders about what it takes to succeed as a Badger.
