Welcome Week

WELCOME WEEK is held prior to the start of classes each fall and is designed to:

  • Connect you with other students, faculty and staff
  • Help you gain important knowledge of the campus resources
  • Introduce you to social life on campus and Eureka’s traditions
  • Assist as you learn the culture and values of Eureka

There are some events that are REQUIRED for all incoming students. Other events are optional - but you won’t want to miss out on the full slate of live entertainment, give-aways, free food, and other activities!
