Welcome Week

August 31 – September 2, 2018

Kick off the new academic year right at Welcome Week! From unique programming and special events to fun activities, Welcome Week is filled with experiences that will allow you to make memories to last a lifetime. During Welcome Week, which is hosted by the Office of Campus Life and Leadership, the action happens both on campus and in the city of Boston, with special excursions and activities in America’s College Town.

At last year’s Welcome Week, students attended a Red Sox game at historic Fenway park, dialed up the excitement on a Codzilla boat tour, visited Canobie Lake Park for a day of fun, and experienced a special performance by a hypnotist, right on campus. And, special walking tours give you the opportunity to discover some of Boston’s most famous neighborhoods like the North End, Coolidge Corner, Faneuil Hall, and Harvard Square.  

You will also attend sessions that cover a variety of topics to help you transition to live at college, including how to get involved on campus, safety in the city, and University policies. Not to mention, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to make friends and new connections with your classmates.

We’re still putting the finishing touches on the schedule for this year’s Welcome Week, but you can bet it will be jam-packed with excitement! Check back soon for detailed information about events, dates, and pricing.
