We in Student Life are aware that Welcome Week can overload students with information. Between all the things you’re told to download, follow, read, and sign up for, we know it can be really overwhelming to know what you need to do and how you as an individual can make the transition smooth for you.

That’s why we’ve rounded up a lot of our Welcome blogs- here you’ll find links and short descriptions for blogs that detail key Welcome information, as well as ones that offer you the perspective of students who have been in your shoes and can offer you some advice.
