Week of Welcome includes a number of activities and programs so students can become familiar with the university’s array of resources, meet new people, and make new friends.


You'll also want to be sure to explore housing options and register for housing on campus. Be sure to check out our Business Academic Residential Community (Business ARC), where you'll live and learn with students who share your passions, interests, and identities.
