Welcome home. As you begin your academic year, we kick off our celebration of students returning to campus on August 12 and continue through August 16, the first day of class.
Welcome Week offers a nonstop schedule of events and experiences. There’s an activity for everyone. Details will be available later this summer. Here are the basics to help you plan for August.View Schedule
