​Welcome, potential Pointers, to new center in heart of campus

A new Welcome Center at UW-Stevens Point is helping prospective students and their families feel at home from the start of their educational journey. Centrally located in what was the Newman Center, it's the first stop for potential Pointers.

The Welcome Center in Partnership with Delta Dental is located at the corner of Fourth Avenue and Reserve Street. It houses the Admissions and Recruitment team, meeting rooms and interactive experiences as a starting point for all campus visitors.

It will help build on a positive enrollment trend.

Enrollment for first-year students at UW-Stevens Point grew by 25 percent in fall 2020, the largest increase within the UW System. The Admissions and Recruitment team attributed the success to taking a more personal and data-driven approach when reaching out to prospective students.

"Campus visits are a crucial component of the college search process," said Marc Young, director of Admissions and Recruitment, "so the new center will create a great first impression of Pointer culture."

The new center was made possible with a leading gift from Delta Dental of Wisconsin, 20 donors and the UWSP Foundation.
