Week of Welcome

During Week of Welcome we gear up for the new school year and welcome all our new students. To introduce students to our campus community, we host a number of activities and programs before classes begin so students can become familiar with the university's array of resources, meet new people, and make new friends. Student Orientation Staff members plan exciting events for WOW. We offer interest sessions regarding student life as well as social activities to get students settled into campus life. 

Week of Welcome 2014 will be September 25–28, 2014, unless students are a member of the Clark Honors College.
