Students are back and so is Western Welcome Week! Western Welcome Week is September 19-25, and is a week of fun, free, and engaging events to welcome all new and returning students. A wide array of new events and annual favorites are on this year’s schedule, including the Associated Students Fall Info Fair, New Student Convocation, Late Night social events, the Outdoor Movie, a weeklong Bike Fest, and a slate of WWU Athletics Events. Most events will be held in-person, pending and per COVID-19 protocols*.
The welcome back continues beyond Welcome Week with additional events in late September and early October, including a Multicultural Students Welcoming Reception, LGBTQ+ Queerientation, and be sure to save-the-date for this year’s Fall Family Weekend on October 15-17, 2021.
Check out all the events and activities on the Western Welcome Week website, and especially consider joining the New Student Convocation Welcome Crew as we celebrate our return to campus together!
