Week of Welcome

As we kick off the new school year, Week of Welcome is packed with activities to help you get settled back in and connect with other students. Some events are specifically for freshmen, but ALL students are invited to join us for the week!

Our highlight of the week is Tuesday, where we will host an opening convocation ceremony for new students, followed by the fifth annual Welcome Party. This year's free party will feature a performance by The Levites, food trucks, vendors, and games! Can't wait to see you there. Woosh!

*Freshmen, athletes, and residential students have required events during the week. Please take note of which events you are required to attend.
