Virtual Choose WSU Days are exclusive online events for admitted students to put themselves at the center of the Winona State Universe and create their schedule based on their interests to meet what’s possible at WSU.

What exactly is a Virtual Choose WSU Day?

For starters, it is an entire website! There is written content, videos, and LIVE Sessions for you to create your choose-your-own-adventure schedule so it’s your day, your way. You get to explore academics, campus life, and support services available to WSU students. The LIVE Sessions take place at various times on the day of the event between 9:00am – 5:00pm, while the written and video content is available to you all weekend long!
