Exciting activities and time-honored traditions
From CultureFest, which is your opportunity to start finding your people, to Traditions and Spirit of IU, where you will get to see first-hand what Big Ten athletics are like and get a feel for what it is like to be a Hoosier, Welcome Week has something for everyone.
Welcome Week events will help you explore the campus, meet new people, and connect to resources. Enjoy large-scale and small-group activities, get to know your academic department, explore different cultures, learn the IU fight song, and attend open houses—all planned to help you transition to campus.
Welcome Week starts Wednesday, August 18, and second-year students are welcomed and encouraged to participate in Welcome Week events. Find the schedule by logging in to the IU Mobile app. Moving in before August 18? Check the schedule for pre-Welcome Week activities too!
