Fall Welcome Week & Move-In

Welcome home to our returning and new students!  We have lots of great resources and activities to help you get settled into Fall Semester at UAA! Here are a few to add to the list!

Fall Welcome Week...Now Campus-wide!

We are excited to promote this year’s UAA Welcome Week. In previous years, Welcome Week has been hosted exclusively by the Department of Residence Life, but we’ve had so much interest and success that for the first time, it will be a campus-wide event! With the help of a team of talented student leaders and departments across campus, we are proud to introduce to you UAA’s 24th Annual Welcome Week celebration from August 22 to August 30.
Welcome Week provides all students at UAA an opportunity to come together in celebration of the new school year and their lives as college students. Throughout the week, students will form lifelong friendships, become prepared to further their educations and learn valuable information about the University and surrounding community! Fall Welcome Week 2015 will feature over twenty programs that focus on student safety, academic success, community building, and more.
