Welcome Week 2020 | August 17 - 23, 2020
As you embark on this new experience as a Bearcat, we hope your first few days on campus set the stage for your college career. We hope you are just as excited to be at UC as we are to have you here!
This year might be different, but there are still tons of events to attend during Welcome Week from social to educational, and from optional to required. This year, we will also host a number of virtual events that you can enjoy online from anywhere! Don’t miss out on all the fun. Events will be shared on the CampusLINK page and the complimentary app Corq. Don’t have a smartphone? No worries! We’ll also have an online schedule for you to view.
All events are open to the entire campus community unless noted in the description.
We sincerely appreciate the patience of students and families as we plan for a safe engaging environment. Please continue to check UC's return to campus page for the most current information.
As a new Bearcat, you are required to attend College Day, and New Student Convocation.
Each year, the schedule is packed with fun events that will allow you to meet new friends, learn about UC's traditions, and get involved in a variety of co-curricular activities and programs! You can also see full descriptions of events on CampusLINK. The more events you attend, the greater your chance to win prizes! Use #ucwelcome20 to learn more about the great events planned for you. Follow us @UCWelcomeWeek, @UCMainStreet, @UC_SALD, and @UC_Wellness for more information!
All first year Bearcats will be enrolled into the Welcome Week path to keep track of event attendance.
