Welcome Week

September 19-28, 2024

What is Welcome Week?

Kicked off by move-in day, Welcome Week is a series of events and activities designed just for you—our newest Eagle!

You can expect to meet new faces, learn more about EWU, and understand what it means to be an Eagle. Our hope is that by the end of Welcome Week, you’re well-acquainted to campus and life here at EWU.

Welcome Week for Winter and Spring quarters are tied to the corresponding Orientation.
