Xavier releases Week of Welcome schedule

By: Lydia Rogers~Campus News Editor~

Xavier’s Week of Welcome (WoW) is taking place Aug. 24 to Sept. 2 this year. WoW is a week of free events and activities meant to welcome both incoming and re­turning students to the University.

WoW is coordinated by the Office of Student Involvement and is made possible by contribu­tions from university clubs and departments that sponsor events throughout the week. “WoW offers many opportuni­ties for students to meet and get to know other students, faculty and staff,” Student Organizations Coordinator of the Office of Student Involvement Crystal Guffey said. “There is an excite­ment and positive energy on cam­pus all week long. We hope new students feel welcomed into our community as they start to makeXavier their home.”

The 2014 Week of Welcome will be comprised of 77 events presented by 62 different student groups, university offices and departments. “Because Week of Welcome is highly advertised and attracts many students, it’s a great time for groups hosting events to reach out to a large and diverse audi­ence,” Guffey said. “For student organizations, this is a great op­portunity to recruit new members or to welcome back returners.” Details can be found online here.
