Your first weekend as a Gael will get you acclimated with all the resources, programs, and services offered at Saint Mary's College.
Please be advised that Reliez Station Road will be closed intermittently during the week of August 25th. This is part of the very heavily traveled route from Highway 24 or 680 to the Saint Mary's College Campus. In order to avoid unnecessary delays, we strongly encourage you to use the Central Lafayette exit from WB Hwy 24 (Oak Hill Rd from EB Hwy 24), and follow the signs to take Saint Mary's Road from Moraga Road. You may wish to consult online map websites to see the routes.
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.
