Week of Welcome (WOW)

The Summer semester is approaching quickly and we can’t wait to welcome new and returning students to campus. Please join us for a Summer Semester Week of Welcome (WOW), May 14-19! Our welcome week kick-off will include free food, activities, networking, community service and fun.

Get to know the campus, meet with ResU leadership and community members while you enjoy treats brought to you by local restaurants. Want to get involved? Talk to reps from our student groups to learn more about how you can help out during the year or sign up to volunteer for our Saturday Service Day.

Whatever you’re in to, there will be something for everyone during this welcome week extravaganza! (Plan to arrive early, once food & supplies are gone, they’re gone.) Come for the goodies, stay for the experience!
