Weeks of Welcome
What is Weeks of Welcome at IUPUI?
Weeks of Welcome (WOW) is a standing tradition at IUPUI. WOW is a campus-wide series of events designed to welcome new first year, transfer, and returning students to IUPUI. The calendar of events spans the first 3 weeks of the fall semester. Coordinated by the Office of Educational Partnerships and Student Success, support and programming for WOW includes, student organizations, offices and departments from across campus, and the Division of Student Affairs. WOW provides a variety of program options for students to participate including educational activities, service learning opportunities, leadership development, diversity programming, and social events. The types of events range from information fairs to artistic productions. WOW is a way for students to engage with peers, as well as learn about the IUPUI and Indianapolis communities. Since its beginning in 2003, there have been several programs that have remained consistent each year; the New Student Welcome, the Diversity Program, a Service Project, the Ice Cream Social and the Involvement Expo. This past year in 2016, there were 30+ events and programs. We had record attendance at events reaching over 10,000 students, faculty and staff. We look forward to continuing this engagement on campus in 2016.
