What: Weekend of Welcome, the kick off to the school year, is an action-packed weekend of activities designed to welcome you to Saint Mary's and get you started on the right foot. All incoming students, including first year and transfer students, are invited and encouraged to attend the speakers and events that are planned.When: Thursday, August 27 through Sunday, August 30. Don't worry, you'll have plenty of time over the weekend to settle in and buy the materials you need before classes officially begin on Monday, August 31!
New students living on campus during the fall term need to arrive to your Residence Hall between 9am-12pm on Thursday, August 27. After moving in, be sure to take advantage of the many opportunities offered during Weekend of Welcome.
New students who are living off campus should plan on joining us throughout Weekend of Welcome. There are several mandatory events that you won't want to miss so be sure to pick up a WOW schedule!
Parents & Families
