What Is Preview the Pack Weekend?
UWG is dedicated to helping you make your college decision, and though our large scale events like Preview Day are not going to be held on campus quite yet, we want to be sure that you have the best experience possible through our Virtual Preview the Pack Weekend. With our virtual experience, you can make the weekend whatever you need it to be and all from the comfort of your couch!
You'll have the opportunity to choose your own adventure and learn from faculty, students, and staff what it's like to be a UWG Wolf. From our academic information sessions and one on one appointments with professors, to our student services fair, to our customized tracks, to our sessions on paying for college, landing your dream job, and learning all about living on campus, we have a little something for everyone.
