Fall Welcome Week

Fall Welcome Week

Fall Welcome Week events are a vital follow-up to Summer Orientation and will continue to grow your knowledge of campus resources and organizations.

As a result of their participation in Welcome Week, students will:

  1. Report feeling welcomed to Rowan University and having met others.
  2. Be empowered to become engaged with campus activities, organizations, and services.
  3. Demonstrate an understanding of behavioral expectations and the importance of making positive personal wellness choices.
