Welcome Week Event Selection

You will receive an email in July prompting you to fill out Welcome Week Event Selection. This should take you about 30 minutes to complete and will allow you to customize your Welcome Week Experience and tell us about your needs.  This process is designed to help you plan for the time committment to participate fully in Welcome Week and to let us know about what you're looking to gain from the experience. You can make changes to your Event Selection up until mid-August.


If living on campus, Housing & Residential Life will assign you a specific move-in time slot on Monday, August 31 or Tuesday, September 1. Your housing assignment and move-in time will be provided by Housing & Residential Life in mid-July. Find more info on their webpage.
