Welcome Week

Welcome Week

Come Together. Begin Together.

Welcome Week, August 20-23, is the official beginning of your experience as a Baylor Bear, giving you opportunities to connect with other incoming students, as well as with returning students who are excited to welcome you into the Baylor community.

Welcome Week activities kick off on Thursday evening following Move2BU, and extend through Sunday night before your first day of classes. Parents and other guests are invited to join opening festivities on Thursday evening.


Transfer students: Your Transfer Welcome Week experience includes all activities of Welcome Week, along with additional events and activities designed just for you.

Getting Ready for Welcome Week!
How do I sign up for Welcome Week?

You don't need to! All entering students are placed in a small group, so there is no registration needed in order to participate.

How do I find out what small group I am in?

You'll learn more about your small group--including information about your group leaders and your group number--just before Welcome Week begins. At that time, you will find info in your MyHousing Portal under the Welcome Week tab.

You will also receive additional information about Welcome Week when you check in to your residence hall for Move-in.
