Welcome Days Fall 2024

Welcome Days will be on August 19 and 20, 2024. New students (including transfer students) are invited to meet their dean and peers; learn about the services available; and get familiarized with the layout of the college before classes start. This event is optional, but students are strongly encouraged to participate in order to prepare themselves as a Dzʿ student.

The following is a detailed schedule of Welcome Days separated by programs/profiles.

To note: some program/profile presentations are not included in Welcome Days (symbolized by N/A below). This is mostly due to earlier (or later) program-specific events covering the same topics. Additionally, the schedule is subject to change, please verify this web page again just prior to the event.

Please arrive 20 minutes before the welcome presentation in order to register.
