Week of Welcome takes place during the first weeks of the fall and spring semesters. This first week of events offers quality experiences and engaging opportunities to build a sense of belonging and inclusion for new and returning students.
Fall Week of Welcome kicks off with New Student Move-In and normally goes until the first home football game. Events during the fall range from the annual Casino Night, Find Your Classes, New Student Convocation, and more!
During the spring, we host Commuter Breakfast, Large Scale Events, Spirit Friday, and more!
Come out and see us during Welcome Week and let us show you why LU is your home away from home!
