Whether you are a first-year student or transfer student, an off-campus student or a residential student prior to the start of classes, there will be programming provided by UMW to help ease your transition into the Eagle community. Due to COVID-19, much of New Student Welcome will be virtual. While the schedule is still under construction, there are some basics that we want to make sure you know.
For first-year students, your experience will begin virtually on August 18 and extend through Sunday, August 23. There will be minimal programming on the day prior to your move-in day and programming won’t begin until 6:30 pm on the day of your move-in to allow you time to get settled.
Below is the tentative schedule for Tuesday, August 18. Following August 18, each schedule will change depending on the students move-in date.
