Your College Welcome is a chance to connect with your college to meet staff, faculty and other students, and to get an insider's look at what your studies and life as a U of S student will be like. The College Welcome takes place in the afternoon, after the Orientation kick-off, and is a great introduction to the programs, services, and activities you can take part in during your studies at the U of S.
