Welcome Week Update for 2017

Welcome Week for 2017 is taking a significant shift in look and feel.  There will be required events for students to attend specifically on Monday and Tuesday of Welcome Week.  We are seeking to reduce the amount of programs and create a more intentionally designed extension of orientation.

There is a committee currently reviewing and making a proposal for Welcome Week and once approved we will be sharing with the rest of campus in April 2017.  

If you have traditionally held am event during Welcome Week, we would ask that you hold off on finalizing details until you hear about the new plan since there is no guarantee that programs will be listed in the Welcome Week calendar.  If you have any questions, you can contact Leslee Mayers in New Student Programs & Family Outreach.    


These events below are ones that are currently scheduled, more details to come in April 2017
