VCU Weeks of Welcome

Weeks of Welcome (WoW) at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) is a tradition that encompasses the time during fall semester from when students return to campus to Family Weekend. WoW is filled with opportunities for students, new and returning, to become acclimated with the VCU community and the city of Richmond. Enjoy the multitude of educational sessions, social activities and opportunities to learn more about involvement on campus. Make new connections as you navigate being part of the VCU Ramily!
