Laker Welcome 2024

Laker Welcome takes place the first six weeks of every fall semester, providing our newest students with information and opportunities to connect with their community as they acclimate to life as a Laker! Welcome Week is week one (August 19 - 25, 2024), and is filled with exciting and fun events. We can't wait to see you there!
