Opening Weekend Traditions


New Seawolf & Family Welcome BBQ

Fall 2021 Semester Welcome Week

New residential students and their families are invited to attend the New Seawolf & Family Welcome BBQ on the date of their student's move-in! While students have mandatory events to attend for New Seawolf Welcome Week, family and guests are not able to attend these events. The BBQ is a great opportunity for families to spend time with their student before the semester begins.

Each student can bring up to 2 guests to the BBQ. Please note that all attendees, including students, must pre-register for the BBQ. 

Sunday, August 15th, 12:30pm-3:30pm

Monday, August 16th, 12:30pm-3:30pm

Tuesday, August 17th, 12:30pm-3:30pm

Thursday, August 19th, 11:00am-2:00pm
