What is Welcome Week?
Welcome Week builds upon your START experience and continues your transition to Oregon State. The events, programs and activities offer you opportunities to: 

  • Meet your fellow new students
  • Learn about resources and opportunities (both inside and outside the classroom) that are critical to your success
  • Get ready for your first week of classes
  • and celebrate the beginning of your OSU experience

Am I expected to attend all Welcome Week events?
Events that are marked with an orange dot are are the events we expect all new students to attend and those happen Sunday-Tuesday. There are also sessions and experiences that you can attend as your schedule permits and as you are interested. 

If I live off-campus where do I go?
For any new student living off campus, you are invited to participate in any of the Welcome Week events, except for all hall and first floors meetings those are only required for those living on campus. For the couple of sessions sessions (Know your Tools and Classroom Success) that might be broken out by hall rotation, you will also see a session for students living off-campus. 

Are Transfer students invited to Welcome Week?
We invite all new students to participate fully in the Welcome Week program. For students living off campus, there are certain sessions that are broken out by resident halls, and you will also see where off-campus living students can participate as well. 

Don't forget to always bring your OSU ID card.
