Welcome Week

August 15-23, 2020

Welcome to the 2020 Southwestern University Welcome Week web site. We’re working hard to make sure that Welcome Week will provide you with a successful transition into the Southwestern community.  We have lots of activities, programs, and events to help you meet fellow students, faculty, and staff members of the SU community. 

This site includes Welcome Week schedules (the schedules are snapshot versions since fuller versions will not be available until summer) for both New Students and Transfer Students.  Also, you can find information about move-in day, what you need to have done before you get to campus, and links to other helpful information.  If you have any questions, please call the Office of Student Activities at 512.863.1345 or email me at We look forward to seeing y’all soon!
