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 at Miami, and have a great time!

Welcome Week 2017 will begin on Thursday, August 24, and continue through Monday, September 4. 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!  

Welcome Week programming is optional for transfer students, but very helpful to attend.  The transfer student track on the Miami University Events app that can be downloaded for free. Once you have the app, download the Orientation and Welcome Week guide. It has be best list of Welcome Week programs for transfer students - including a transfer student meet and greet just for new transfers!  Transfer students who live in a Miami residence hall will also receive a printed list of our Welcome BACK Week events, which includes a picnic at the Hub, a second-year student etiquette dinner, and a housing fair where you can learn about moving off campus. We expect that the 2017 Welcome Week schedule will be available in mid-August 2017.
