Welcome Week

Welcome Week is an action packed program to help you get acclimated as a new member of the AU community. We have an incredible week planned for you that will be jammed full of fun, information, and opportunities to meet your fellow students while providing you with time to get settled into your new home. Welcome Week starts Move In Day August 16th and continues through the following Saturday, August 23rd. We ask that all new students make plans to attend Welcome Week. You will receive a final Welcome Week Schedule when you check in on August 16th. If you have any questions or need more information, please contact the Student Activities Office by e-mail: or by phone: 864-231-2107.
