Welcome Week is SBU’s new student orientation program. Welcome Week 2020 is scheduled for August 14-16.
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 a time to come to campus early, meet other students, have fun, and gain a sense of belonging before the semester begins.
