The expectation of the university is that all new students, both first-year and transfer, will take part in all the required components of Welcome Week. Additionally, there are many fun opportunities during the week that we encourage you to go to as well. If you are interested in further campus activities, the Pre-Welcome Week programs offer many different ways to get involved, move-in early, and get to know other new Bulldogs. Registration for these programs can be found here and is now available.
