Blue & Gold Days

Congratulations on Your Acceptance to Lakeland University!

Now it’s time to join us for your Blue & Gold Days. The Blue & Gold Champions, Staff, and Faculty are excited to welcome you to the Muskie Family. This one of a kind overnight experience will offer you opportunities to learn about the campus, share good food, and make lifelong memories with your classmates. In addition, you will have the chance to connect with other campus resources, such as Student Employment, Student Affairs, Academic Resources, IT, Campus Safety, Health and Wellness, Financial Aid, and many more. Cooperative Education will be on-site and eager to discuss local employment opportunities with you. We all look forward to meeting you and your family!

Lakeland University offers two Blue & Gold Days sessions on June 17-18 and July 19-20.

Students can attend one of two Blue & Gold Days sessions: June 22-23 or July 16-17. Registration for this overnight program can be completed online ( Parents and family are encouraged to attend; however, there is an additional cost for meals and lodging for attending guests. There is no cost for incoming Lakeland University students.

Register online!

Special sessions have been designed for parents and families to learn about campus resources and how first-year students can succeed. Blue & Gold Days offers the valuable opportunity to connect with other parents and families through various activities.

Students who attend the Blue & Gold Days will stay on campus in a traditional residence hall and be assigned a roommate for the evening. Through this experience, you will gain firsthand knowledge of what it is like to be a student at Lakeland University. Plus, it is an excellent way to get to know other new students!

There are several lodging options available for families attending orientation with their students. The following locations are close to campus (20-minute drive) and offer a Lakeland University room rate. Be sure to let them know you are a Lakeland University Blue & Gold Days attendee when reserving a room, and it is best to book in advance.

We have a limited amount of housing available in our shared on-campus housing for those who wish to stay on campus on June 22 or July 16 at $75 (per room). Please get in touch with the Office for Residence Life at 920-565-1000 ext. 2465 for more information or to make reservations. These will be traditional residence hall rooms, with single beds and a shared restroom. This will be an excellent way to meet other parents as well.

Participants will be spending the night in a traditional-style residence hall. Students should bring their own bedding (pillow, sheet, blanket); some prefer a mattress topper as well. Students who wish to participate in the open gym later in the day may wish to pack appropriate shoes and a change of clothes. Participants must bring all toiletries and any other accessories. Since the Wisconsin weather can be unpredictable, we suggest packing a hoodie. Session materials, including a complete schedule, will be distributed during check-in starting at 4:00 p.m. on day one.

Get excited to move to campus on August 23 and experience our Fall orientation session until classes begin on August 28!

If you have any questions, please contact Corey Roberson, Director of Leadership and Student Engagement, at 920-565-1000 ext. 2509 or email
