The start of each academic year begins with celebratory programs and events during the Welcome Week activities. The majority of the programs are designed as the next component of the transitional programs for first-year students as they begin their collegiate journeys at Southern Connecticut State University. First-year students (freshmen) are required to attend Welcome Week as part of their enrollment obligations. In addition to new-student move-in day (for on-campus students), Welcome Week programs include information vital to the success of first-year students centered around academic success, community expectations, and social integration.
Additionally, within the first few weeks of the fall semester, Southern will welcome continuing students back to campus with exciting events and programs to open each academic year with true Southern spirit!
