Weekend of Welcome

Your first weekend as a Gael will get you acclimated with all the resources, programs, and services offered at Saint Mary's College.

Our faculty, staff and students are excited to welcome you home to Saint Mary's College as our newest class of Gaels. Your guides for Weekend of Welcome are Student Leaders (WoWies), who will answer your questions, give advice and show you around!

After move-in day, you, as a new student, get to take part in Weekend of Welcome — four amazing days of activities that focus on coursework, programs that complement the curriculum, and activities that willhelp you get acquainted with your new home. Some of the events include New Student Convocation, participation in students' first academic classes, and a nighttime carnival. Activities range from your first advising meeting, to our annual Saturday of Service, to trips around San Francisco and the Farewell Dinner.
