Welcome Programming

Find out more about Welcome Week 2017 soon!

Welcome Week will be filled with activities and events that help you learn more about the campus while making new friends.



Welcome Week is filled with activities and events that help incoming students learn more about the campus while making new friends.

Summer Orientation for Academic Readiness (SOAR) is a two-day summer orientation experience.

Welcome Week and SOAR are designed to ease transition into university life all while ensuring that all students CONNECT, ENGAGE, and BELONG to Memorial!

Come volunteer with us to help plan and implement our Transition and Welcoming Programming for all new and returning students.

Peer Lead Volunteers are our front-line volunteers. You will directly interact with new and returning students and their parents during SOAR 2017 and/or Welcome Week 2017. You are the face of Memorial!

Event Lead Volunteers work behind the scenes. You will assist with event set-up, tear down, troubleshoot, and provide event support. You are organized and love implementing plans!

Operation Lead Volunteers will collaborate with the Student Experience Office staff throughout the summer to create and execute SOAR 2017 and/or Welcome Week 2017 programming. You are professional, organized, and trustworthy.
