Weeks of Welcome

Welcome to Fall 2021 | Your Home Away from Home

Fall 2021 is right around the corner and we are excited for you to call BGSU your home away from home throughout the academic year.

Weeks of Welcome is a campus-wide series of events designed to welcome students and the campus community to the new school year. The calendar of events spans through Oct. 9 and includes fun, engaging ways for students to meet with new friends and create meaningful connections at BGSU.

New Students | Because you are new to campus, there will be a series of events and programs designed to welcome you to campus for the first time.

  • Aug. 20-22 – If you are a new residential student, there will be opportunities for you to connect with your neighbors each night after move-in.
  • Aug. 23-24 – There will be a series of required programming and optional events designed to help you connect with new friends and the campus community.
  • Aug. 23-Oct. 9 – Join your new Falcon friends and connect with returning students through a series of can’t-miss events and programs.

Returning Students | We are celebrating your return to campus with a series of events that kick off on Aug. 22 and last through the beginning of October. We are also excited to provide an official in-person event for our second-year students who missed out on an in-person welcome last fall.
