Welcome Weekend

September 3 -6, 2020

Welcome to the 2020 Southwestern University Welcome Weekend web site. 

The week of August 24th, Welcome Weekend (September 3-6) and the first two weeks of the fall semester will provide a variety of events to assist in your successful transition into the Southwestern community.  We have activities, programs, and events to help you meet fellow students, faculty, and staff members of the SU community. 

This site includes revised Welcome Weekend schedules for New Students and another for Transfer Students.  Going forward, these schedules will continue to evolve as fuller event descriptions and links to more virtual events are added to these pages.  In the meantime, please know that 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!
