What is the difference between Orientation and Welcome Week?

Orientation is your first major step in becoming acquainted with the campus community. During Orientation, you will meet with your academic advisor, and register for classes. In addition, you are connected with an orientation student leader who serves as your guide throughout the campus and orientation activities. 

Welcome Week is a fun transition program held the week before classes begin to further acquaint you with the university. Welcome Week assists first-year students with their academic and social transitions to college life and builds on the foundation created at Orientation.
