  • Weeks of Welcome (WOW)

The Department of Student Programs and Leadership and the Office of New Student and Family Orientation working with student organizations across campus, welcome the first year students with Weeks of Welcome/40 Days and 40 Nights of Programming. The first few weeks of the Fall Semester at Roger Williams University are a very special time for all of us on campus. These ‘Weeks of Welcome’ are designed to show you what our campus has to offer outside of the classroom.

Weeks of Welcome is a preview of the fabulous year that first year students can look forward to. We encourage students to attend as many of the events as possible. Each first year student receives a complete schedule during their Move In process, but here are traditional highlights. These events are open to the entire student body:

  • Play Fair
  • CEN’s 1, 2, 3 Weekend
  • Late Night Target Trip
  • First Year Student trip to Newport
  • Student Involvement Fair

Make sure that you attend the Student Involvement Fair, where you will be able to sign up for various clubs and organizations. Who knows, you may be planning future Weeks of Welcome events as a student leader! Attending Weeks of Welcome events will allow you to meet many different students and staff at Roger Williams University. We can’t wait to see you there.
