CCAS & CEC Events

Your Wisconsin Experience will be defined not only by what you learn, but by the connections you make. To continue making those campus connections and learning how to be successful in your first year at UW-Madison, join us at the different events we host throughout the year.

CCAS Orientation

Varsity Hall, Union South

The CCAS Open House will be hosted in each of our five residence hall offices. At the Open House you can:

  • tour a CCAS residence hall office
  • meet the professional and peer advisors in that office
  • ask any questions you have as you begin your time as a UW-Madison student
  • enjoy some snacks while connecting with other CCAS students (who, just like you, are exploring their major options).

Look for more information regarding the CCAS Open Houses before the start of the semester.

Date TBD
114 Ingraham Hall

Drop in to the CEC to meet our friendly career advisors, grab a snack, and learn more about how the CEC can help you explore majors and careers. Workshop and appointment sign-ups will be available as well.


The Career Exploration Center holds major and career exploration workshops throughout the academic year. Topics range from “Choosing a Major” to “Careers for Economics Majors” to “Navigating Biosciences at UW-Madison.” Visit the CEC workshop page to see the current line-up!
