Welcome Week

Exciting activities and time-honored traditions

Enjoy a community of diverse, smart, interesting people that will make you glad you chose to become a Hoosier. That, in a nutshell, is Welcome Week. Whether you’re new or returning to IU, these events will help you prepare for a successful year and experience what it means to be an IU student. Programs are planned for students as they arrive on campus and will occur both in-person (following stated university guidelines) and virtually. Welcome programs will continue into the semester and as Hoosiers start—and continue—their Hoosier Experience.

I came to IU not knowing if I would make any friends, or if I truly belonged, but that all changed once I experienced Welcome Week. Welcome Week helped me learn how to create a community, and the importance of interacting with my peers. It has been one of my most rewarding experiences and it has set the roadmap for my success here at IU.
