Welcome Week

Make Welcome Week Your Own!

While many programs in Welcome Week are required and have been pre-selected for you, the transition to the U is a personal one. This Welcome Week Event Selection process allows you to provide information so your individual needs and interests can be accommodated.

Once you complete this process you will receive a confirmation email and attachment of your Welcome Week schedule. You can use this schedule to learn more about what you will be doing before classes start. Please note that your preferences will be used to create your final Welcome Week schedule, however, we cannot guarantee the sessions you selected will be available.

Important Note: You have until August 13 to adjust your selections. After that point, no adjustments may be made to your selections. If you have questions about what you selected, you can ask your Welcome Week Leader when you meet them at your first small group meeting on Wednesday, September 1.

Win a Sprint LG Rumor Touch! If you complete the Event Selection process and the Welcome Week post-test (available after Welcome Week), your name will be entered into our grand prize drawing for a Sprint LG Rumor Touch!
