Kick off your academic year during Western Welcome Week! Participate in a weeklong series of informative, fun, and engaging activities to help you begin your Western experience. You’ll meet other students, build connections with faculty and staff, and explore ways to become more involved in your new campus and community.

Western Welcome Week is for ALL new and returning WWU students with events such as the Associated Students’ Red Square Info and Club Fair, late night social activities, an outdoor movie, workshops on study skills, career planning, and finance management, bus and bike tours of Bellingham and so much more that offer something for everyone.
