What is Cajun Connection?
The Office of First-Year Experience (OFYE) is dedicated to assisting all UL Lafayette students transition from high school to college level learning and develop the skills required to be successful during their collegiate career. At the start of the Fall and Spring semesters, the Office of First-Year Experience hosts Cajun Connection as part of the UNIV 100 First-Year Seminar course.
Why should I attend?
This event introduces students to their UNIV 100 instructor, classmates, and peer mentor. Students are provided with an opportunity to get acquainted with the campus and the available resources (from tutoring, to academic resources, to finding your classes, and everything in between). The information provided in Cajun Connection is essential to each student's college success and helps the students immerse themselves in the UL Lafayette lifestyle. Completion of Cajun Connection is MANDATORY and does count as part of the student's UNIV 100 course grade.
Spring 2021 Cajun Connection will be held via Moodle and will be accessible beginning January 12 at 8:00 a.m. Students will need to be completed by January 29, 2021.
Fall 2021 Cajun Connection & New Student Convocation will be an all-day event held Thursday, August 19th, 2021.
