Southwestern University

Welcome Week

August 19-27, 2023

Welcome to the 2023 Southwestern University Welcome Week website.

Welcome Week will provide our newest Pirates with a successful transition into the Southwestern community.  We have a variety 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 for both New Students and Transfer Students.  Additionally, 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 contact David Tuttle, the Associate Vice President for Student Life at We look forward to seeing y’all soon!
