Welcome Week 2019


07/29/2019

Summer is soon coming to an end, and in just a few weeks campus will once again be buzzing with students. Welcome Week 2019 will be filled with activities to welcome first-year students to campus, and returning students back to the SAU community.

"Welcome Week is the university's way of greeting and introducing the first-year class and all newcomers to all the traditions, services, and academic and social opportunities campus has to offer," Jason Richter, Director of Student Engagement, said. "It's also a way to welcome back our returning students."

This year, Welcome Week will feature more than 70 events.

One event for first-year students is the Urban Plunge. This event allows students to learn about the SAU community, give back to others, and meet their new classmates. Urban Plunge kicks off service projects for the year, where SAU students will give more than 150,000 hours volunteering on campus and around the world.

There are many events for everyone on campus to participate in.

"We definitely have events geared to the first-year class, like Urban Plunge and Playfair, but we also have events for the entire university," Richter said. "The Block Party, Club Fest and Academic Convocation are just a few of those events that are targeted to the whole SAU community."

Welcome Week runs August 18 - 28, 2019.
