Welcome Week, August 22-25, 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.
You don't need to! All entering students are placed in a small group, so there is no registration needed in order to participate.
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.
Parents and other guests are absolutely invited to attend the Baylor Family Picnic event at 5:30pm on Thursday, August 22. This Welcome Week kickoff event is a picnic dinner for students and guests alike! Family members and other guests can register for the event online beginning in July.
Immediately following the Picnic, students and guests will say their goodbyes and transition into separate events. Parents and other guests are invited to stay for a brief program hosted by the office of Parent Engagement, which will conclude by 8:00pm.
