Welcome to the FranU campus community! Wolf Pack Orientation is designed to provide you a conducive space to make valuable connections, become more acquainted with the campus and its services, and gather helpful tips towards a successful and formative experience at FranU.

Who should attend:

Students not yet admitted to FranU may contact the Office of Admissions at (225) 526-1631.

ADMITTED STUDENTS MUST SCHEDULE AN ADVISING APPOINTMENT AND MEET WITH AN ADVISOR PRIOR TO ORIENTATION. Information on how to schedule advising appointments is sent to students with their acceptance materials via email. March 29 will be the first day new students can schedule an advising appointment. Please contact the Office of Advising, 225-526-1620, if you have any questions.

Wolf Pack Orientation is a required program for incoming students. Those students who have been readmitted to FranU, meaning they have taken classes previously at FranU, can choose to attend orientation if they wish to receive updated information. Students who are participating in online programs are not required to attend orientation.

Family/guests are invited, but are not required to attend orientation. However, we strongly encourage their attendance, especially if this is their student’s first university experience. Since the information presented is new it really helps to have someone else to help remember all of the details.

Wolf Pack Orientation is being held in the Biological Learning and Research Building (Room 100) located at:
