Welcome Week

Beginning on Move-In Day* (September 21), we have 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, you'll have tons of activities to choose from. Some events are required, and you’ll choose others to check out. We encourage you to get out as much as possible to explore your new campus, meet fellow Redhawks, and make new friends.      

All new students and their families, whether you’re living on campus or not, should plan to attend the New Student Welcome & Family Farewell at 3:30 p.m. (doors open at 3:15 p.m.). Families and guests will be asked to leave campus at the conclusion of the event, so that you can participate fully in the rest of Welcome Week.
