The UNI Now Experience

Coming this fall, all new students (freshmen and transfer) will spend their first few days on campus participating in our new UNI Now. UNI Now is more than a program, it’s the next step in preparing first-year students for success at UNI. It’s an integral part of students transitioning to college life at UNI.

The choice to attend UNI Now is similar to whether or not students choose to attend class, or get involved on campus. Just like regular class attendance is important for academic success, participation in UNI Now is important to adjusting and getting acquainted with campus.  It will also help students get connected with new and returning students, discover UNI traditions, attend fun and engaging events, and find out what is means to be a Panther!
