Lion Launch

Lion launch orientation program

The UAFS Lion Launch program is dedicated to the success of transfer and non-traditional students. You will learn:

  • how to connect with UAFS technology.
  • stories from students and alumni.
  • campus resources.

You’ll discover the credentials and experience you’ll need to place you at the top of employers’ lists. Plus you’ll be able to tour campus, see your classrooms and facilities, tour the library, enjoy a meal with us, and mingle with other non-traditional and transfer students. The countdown to the start of the semester is underway!
