Weeks of Welcome

The first two weeks of each semester are called “Weeks of Welcome” (or WoW for short). Each campus coordinates a variety of social activities and educational programs aimed at easing the transition to college-level work after the summer break. WoW events are a great way to meet other students, interact with faculty and staff, and get better acquainted with university resources, opportunities, and expectations.
