About this guide
Welcome Week is a week dedicated to our new incoming students in which we provide you an array of academic and social programs, and a host of opportunities to explore and experience your new campus and community.
When you arrive on campus you will receive additional information on Welcome Week . Some events are mandatory so be sure to look through the information carefully. Students living on campus will receive this additional information at the time of move-in. Students living off campus can either refer to the Welcome Week website for event and mobile app information, or stop by the Welcome Week Booth which will be located in the Krentzman Quad, beginning August 28.
Below are some of the mandatory events you should plan to attend. Mark your calendars!
