Welcome Week Has Something for Everyone
Incoming Eagles have a wide range of opportunities to connect with collegiate life in the days leading into the start of fall quarter, Wednesday, Sept. 21.
Welcome Week, to be held Sept.14-22 at locations throughout the Cheney campus, offers new students a chance to learn more about everything that EWU has to offer – including degree programs, university policies, clubs and recreation.
Students can get a photo taken with Izzy the camel, play casino games, catch some Eags football, get free swag and far more – all while getting to know their peers.
Twenty-six EWU students have stepped up to serve as orientation leaders. Additional volunteers are needed to help with Move-In Day and some of the weeklong special events to ensure that students have a welcoming experience. Faculty and staff members interested in helping with Club Vegas or serving as a Wayfinder to assist students in locating classrooms can access the volunteer sign-up sheet online.
