Summer Orientation started your transition to Seattle University and Welcome Week will continue to help you get prepared for life as an SU student with new and different activities. All first year students are expected to attend Welcome Week programs.
Students attending a New Student Immersion program will move into their residence halls on September 18th. Make sure to check your Seattle U email account for detailed information. If you are not attending a New Student Immersion, you will move into your residence hall room on Saturday, September 21. Our Welcome Week events will begin that day. Commuter students and families will be invited to campus in the early afternoon to join in the activities.
Check out the complete 2013 Welcome Week Family Schedule here!
On the 21st, Student Financial Services, the Campus Store
and the Student Health Center will be open in the late morning/early afternoon.
At 3:00 Dr. Tim Leary, Executive Vice
President and Dr. Michele Murray, Interim Vice President for Student
Development will address family members while students participate in floor
meetings or a gathering in the Lynn Collegium for commuters.
A resource fair of Student Development Offices
will take place after the address for last minute questions about our programs
Family Good-byes: We ask family members to say
their goodbyes at 4:30 p.m. so that students can continue with the Welcome Week
programming. Students will have dinner with their Orientation Advisors
(OAs) and small groups..
The day includes an opportunity for our new students to get together with their residence hall neighbors or with other commuting students at the Lynn Collegium. Later in the evening new students will meet with their small group and Orientation Advisor (OA) over dinner.
The week will be full of fun and informational sessions. You'll laugh at the OA Cabaret, be formally introduced as the Class of 2017, discuss our common reading with faculty, check out the city, hear from Will Keim (a SU orientation favorite!), make lots of friends, participate in a service project, dance the night away and much, much more.We look forward to welcoming you to your new home.
Don't forget to read your Academic day book, The Shallows:What the Internet is Doing to Our Brains
The book should be completed by Fall Welcome Week. The Reading Guide can be found here.
