Wildcat Welcome | Louisiana College

Wildcat Welcome

Welcome to your new home away from home. The transition from high school to college is one of the most exciting times in life and we want to do our best to help you navigate this transition well. From the moment you arrive on campus, our orientation staff will walk you through your first week at Louisiana College. View the Wildcat Welcome Student Orientation Schedule HERE.

Follow us on Twitter and Instagram for announcements and reminders about Wildcat Welcome, @LCunionboard, & @LA_College.

When you arrive on campus, our Residence Life Staff and Wildcat Navigator Staff will be here to greet you. Freshmen will move in August 12, when you will be directed to your assigned residence hall for check-in. As you get settled into your new room, make sure you join us for lunch on the lawn of Cottingham Hall (the girl’s residence hall). 

Parents are invited to the Martin Performing Art Center (MPAC) at 4:30 p.m. for Parent Orientation. Parents will hear from the LC staff and other college parents about how to navigate this new season in their life. During this time students will be able to meet their navigator and advisor. 

Parents and students are also invited to attend the President's Cookout at 5:00 p.m. 

This week will be invaluable to helping you learn the ropes of being a student at Louisiana College. You will also begin forming lifelong friendships.

Wildcat Welcome is part of the College Connection, your freshmen orientation class, and counts as a large part of your grade for the course. Make your plans now to be here; we know you will have a blast.
