Welcome Week & The First 56

Welcome Week will be August 9-20, but our intentional efforts to make students feel welcomed will continue through October 9. Going beyond Welcome Week until October 9 allows us to support students with opportunities to engage in and develop healthy behaviors during a critical time when habits are typically formed, their First 56 days on campus.

We would love for you to participate in Welcome Week & The First 56 in your own unique ways to welcome new and returning students to campus this fall! We invite all event types to be a part: tabling, virtual/hybrid events and informational sessions, open houses or similar events that introduce students to your organization/office, free food events, large-scale and late-night social events, and everything in between.

If you would like to submit an event form to be a campus partner with The First 56, please do so at  the event submission form. If you are still wanting to be a Welcome Week campus partner please email: welcome@auburn.edu
