Welcome Week Fall 2020

Welcome Week is from August 17-23 and there are more than 150 different programs and events during this week to enhance your connection to campus. It would be impossible to attend all the events, so we encourage you to select events in the schedule that fit your interests. There are several required programs for first-year students during Welcome Week that cover important topics about health and safety, diversity and inclusion, and the transition into the college environment. Parents and family members are also invited to attend program sessions and events during Welcome Week. We have designed the Welcome Week schedule to fit with the move-in schedule so you can start attending events when you arrive.

 

The Welcome Week schedule for Fall 2020 will launch in May 2020!
