Welcome Week, which takes place at the start of the fall quarter, begins on Move-In Day for new students living in the residence halls. Welcome Week is designed to reacquaint students with the people, places, and resources that they learned about through the admissions process and through Orientation events.
Welcome Week offers a schedule packed with events and activities to celebrate the arrival of SU's new students. From Convocation to concerts, BBQs, and excursions to explore Seattle, students have tons of activities to choose from. Some events are mandatory, and students choose others to check out. We encourage all new students to get out as much as possible to explore campus, meet fellow Redhawks, and make new friends.
On Move-In Day, all new students and their families, whether living on campus or not, attend the New Student Welcome & Family Farewell. Families and other guests are asked to leave campus at the conclusion of the event, so that students can participate fully in the rest of Welcome Week.
