Spring Welcome


Spring Welcome was designed to welcome back new and returning students with activities all around campus. We urge you to participate in as many as you can, both virtually and in person, to meet new friends, learn more about yourself and others, and to simply have some fun while you are getting back into the groove of college life. 

Please check the calendar in Bulldog Connect for updates and links. This list is continually changing. 

Thank you and GO DAWGS!!!
