2016 Welcome Week
Information about the 2016 Welcome Week events will become available in August 2016. Please check back then for event details and instructions on how to download the Welcome Week mobile app.
Welcome Week is designed to help new and returning students adjust to the new academic year. Students will meet other new students, get to know campus, learn about the opportunities available, and have a great time.
Welcome Week Leaders are returning student leaders who serve as guides throughout Welcome Week. Welcome Week Leaders will meet students at their residence hall floors and bring them to highlighted Welcome Week events. They also serve as valuable resources about campus.
