A new academic year beings on Aug. 25, and students will be welcomed to (and back to) campus with a full week of programming.
The Week of Welcome runs Aug. 25-30, 2014. Chipotle gift cards and a grand prize of a $500 worth of textbooks will be raffled off at events marked with an asterisk (*) to returning students who participated in the summer long “Where is it Wednesday” email contest. Students must be present to claim prizes.
“We’ve been working all summer to plan the Week of Welcome, and I hope it will set the tone for a fun and engaging semester,” said Alex Ulbricht, director of campus involvement. “Welcome back!”
