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.

Fall Welcome Week Schedule of Events 2020

The question mark represents the days when the Welcome Week Committee is hosting our annual Ask Me Booths. Have questions about campus or need directions? Stop by an Ask Me Booth to get an answer! The tents will run Tuesday-Thursday from 9:00am-5:00pm and are located on the Robinson Hall circle & Student Center Back Patio. Not on campus, but still have questions? Visit the Virtual Ask Me Table, sponsored by the Student Government Association, at go.rowan.edu/askme.
