The Why Behind Welcome Week

You are about to begin a new phase of life and we want to help you succeed in every way we can. It is normal for incoming students to be a little nervous and to have lots of questions when they arrive on campus. We are all here to help you settle into campus and get started on the right foot. The Welcome Week team includes not only the Dean of Students, but also staff members from Student Activities, Academic Advising, Career Development, Housing and residential life, and more. From the time you step onto campus, Welcome Week will provide you with everything you need to start your college career off right!
