2018 Welcome Week Dates
Saturday, August 18 - Saturday, August 25
Please visit the Required Events page to see the dates and times of the required events. We would recommend that you not plan events that conflict with these as the first year students will be unable to attend.
Planning a Welcome Week Event
Campus departments/organizations are invited to plan an event during Welcome Week that will help create a stronger sense of community as well as ease the transition into the new school year. Events that are open to all students will be listed in the Welcome Week mobile app and website if the form below is received by June 15th. If you would like to participate in Welcome Week, please complete the event submission form. Please also be aware that events must address at least one of the recently redeveloped learning outcomes of Welcome Week.
WELCOME WEEK EVENT GOALS
1. Students will increase their integration into NDSU's academic and social communities and traditions
2. Students will increase their knowledge of academic expectations, processes, and available resources
3. Students will access and navigate the campus and available resources
4. Students will engage in behaviors that contribute to a healthy and positive environment
For questions about the new learning outcomes, please contact Sami Johnson.
2018 Event Submissions
The event submission deadline has passed. Please contact Sami Johnson to inquire if it is still possible to have your event included for 2018.
Welcome Week Mobile App
This year, we will use a mobile app developed specifically for NDSU's Welcome Week. It will be available to download from the App Store and Google Play in early August.
Recognizing that not all students have a mobile device that will be compatible with the new app, the Welcome Week website will undergo a major update over the summer in order to provide the majority of the same information that will be housed within the app.
