1. welcomeweek

Welcome to campus, Wolves!

Welcome Week is a celebration of community, thankfulness, connection, and the start of a new academic year. Every day you have the opportunity to meet someone new, connect with campus resources, faculty, and staff, and have some fun along the way. We encourage you to stop by any or all of the different things we have going on throughout the week. Let's have a "FRANTASTIC" start to a new year!

Welcome Week 2023

August 14 - August 17

    Congratulations to Rebecca Gruntz, Enrollment Advisor, for the winning design for this year's Welcome Week T-shirt!
