Welcome Week is SBU’s new student orientation program. Welcome Week 2021 is scheduled for August 13-15.
Welcome Week provides a great opportunity for new students, both freshmen and transfer students, to become better acquainted with SBU and with one another. The weekend’s events will help you meet new friends, make the transition academically, and provide opportunities for you to begin thinking about what it means to follow Christ in a collegiate environment.
Welcome Week is free for new student participation. You may choose to purchase a Welcome Week t-shirt for $10. There is a meal served on move-in day, which is free for new students. You may purchase guest meal vouchers for $7 each.
Welcome Week is designed to make the college transition as smooth as possible! It is an opportunity for you to meet new students and transition academically, all while integrating faith in everything you do!
