Many NDSU Welcome Week events are scheduled from Saturday, Aug. 20 through Wednesday, Sept. 1.
NDSU is set to kick off fall semester with a variety of Welcome Week special events.
Move-In Day is Saturday, Aug. 21, when hundreds of incoming students will settle into the NDSU residence halls. Welcome Week is an engaging opportunity for incoming students to create connections and develop a sense of belonging on campus.
“I think taking an active role in Welcome Week is a huge part of succeeding at NDSU,” said Katelyn Blotsky, a senior human development and family science major from Mandan, North Dakota.
There are several events happening during Welcome Week for students to attend. Some activities include:
