What is Welcome Week, you ask? It's 12 days of more than 100 events that will help you meet new people, connect with campus resources, learn your way around, prepare for your first semester, and have a great time! The schedule for Welcome Week 2015 will be posted soon, but take a look at last year's events to get an idea of what to expect!

Welcome Week 2015 will begin on Thursday, August 20, 2015 (move-in day for first-year students) and continue through Monday, August 31, 2015. With more than 100 programs sponsored by 40+ campus departments, Welcome Week has something for everyone!

Welcome Week programming will help you connect with other new students, staff, faculty, Miami, and the Oxford community; feel more comfortable navigating the physical space of campus; try new things; and have fun! First-year students are expected to attend Welcome Week events, particularly those from Thursday, August 20 (move-in day) through Sunday, August 23 (the day before fall classes begin).

All first-year students will receive a printed copy of the Welcome Week schedule at residence hall check-in.
