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.

Welcome Week

Select University departments will be open on Saturday and Sunday for the convenience of students and their families during move in.

Students will receive a full Welcome Week schedule upon check-in to their residence hall. Commuter students may pick up their scheudle at the Chamberlain Student Center Information Desk.

The flame represents a HOT SPOT event. Visit a HOT SPOT to meet new people and attend the events together! Meet a student leader 15 minutes before the beginning of the event by the gazebo across from Magnolia Hall and you can all go together!

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 daily Tuesday-Friday from 7:30am-6:30pm and are located on the Robinson Hall circle & Student Center Back Patio.
