2022 Welcome Gatherings

Thank you for your interest in participating in one of this year's Welcome Gatherings for members of the Class of 2026, transfer students, and their families!

In 2022, we will offer both in-person and virtual Welcome Gatherings.

Our in-person Welcome Gatherings are organized geographically, and you may choose to participate in the one that encompasses your hometown—or, you may feel free to join any Welcome Gathering.

Our virtual Welcome Gatherings, which take place via Zoom, also are organized geographically, but you may join any virtual Welcome Gathering. In addition, we are offering a Welcome Gathering in Spanish and one for our families with special interest in resources for our students of color, first generation students, and LGBTQ+ students. Our virtual Welcome Gatherings are specifically for parents/guardians only, as Class of 2026 students have their own opportunities to engage virtually throughout the summer.

At our Welcome Gatherings, you can expect to

  • meet other Class of 2026 and transfer student families, as well as members of the College staff,
  • learn helpful information, and
  • ask questions.

Tenga en cuenta que estamos ofreciendo una Reunión de Bienvenida en español.

Choose a Welcome Gathering that best fits your schedule!
