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.

When you arrive on campus, our Residence Life Staff and Wildcat Navigator Staff will be here to greet you. Freshmen will move in at 10 a.m. on 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) for burgers. The orientation staff will be there to give you your orientation packet that includes your Wildcat Welcome t-shirt. Food will be provided from noon to 2 p.m., and orientation packets will be available for pick-up from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Parents are invited to the Martin Performing Art Center (MPAC) at 3:30 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.

Wildcat Welcome orientation will officially kick off in the theater at 5 p.m. on Thursday evening and will conclude on Sunday evening. Orientation 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 orientation 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.
