Welcome Week

August 4-8, 2021

Welcome Week is where your UMHB journey officially begins. Moving into your residence hall is just the start of a week designed to make sure you feel at home before you ever set foot into a classroom. You'll join a Cru Group of other students based on your major, led by UMHB upperclassmen just a bit ahead of you on the journey, and you'll keep in touch with that group throughout your first year.

Anchored in building community, Welcome Week is also full of activities and fun, no matter your interests or personality.

Welcome Week has a bit of everything - plenty of fun, academic preparation, but also a spiritual emphasis and an opportunity for service. We come to college ready for an experience that makes it clear we're transitioning from high school to something bigger and better, and Welcome Week does that perfectly.
