Week of Welcome

Why Week of Welcome?
WoW is an experience that connects students to life on campus and participation will help make CTX feel like home. Some events are specifically for freshmen, but ALL students are invited to join us for the week!

You won't want to miss the 8th annual Welcome Party on Monday, August 27, hosted by our friends at UFCU. This year's celebration will feature live music, food trucks, vendors, and games!

We can't wait to see you there and begin to take the world by storm. #ctxwoosh!

*Freshmen and residential students have required events during the week. Please take note of which events you are required to attend. Some event details are subject to change.
