Lead the Pack is an outdoor-based orientation program for incoming college students that allows participants to meet new friends and learn about college life during an exciting 3-day adventure at the Central Wisconsin Environmental Station.
Lead the Pack helps provide first-year UW-Stevens Point students with a smooth transition into the college community. In a fun yet challenging environment, students develop leadership skills, form lasting relationships with peers, and learn about college life from current students. Lead the Pack activities are outdoor-based and engaging, leaving participants ready to meet the school year with new friends, and with confidence.
Lead the Pack includes a 1-credit course (NRES 120: Orientation to Campus Life) that fulfills your GEP Foundational Wellness requirement. To be eligible for the course, you must complete the three-day adventure program in August. As part of NRES 120, we will meet for six evening sessions scheduled for the first six Thursdays of the fall semester, September 3 - October 8. Topics covered will include the Seven Dimensions of Wellness, student involvement, residential life, student support resources and recreation. Be sure to plan this into your schedule when you register for fall classes.
