A week of events filled with opportunities to become
a part of campus, get involved, meet other Cougs,
and have fun before classes start.
Week of Welcome 2017!
August 16-20, 2017
Week of Welcome 2016 begins with the official university move-in on Wednesday, August 16. While residence hall contracts begin on Saturday, August 12, WSU highly encourages students arrive on August 16 to kick off the college experience with WOW events beginning that night.
