Welcome Week takes place during the first weeks of the fall and spring semesters. This first week of events offers quality experiences and engaging opportunities to build a sense of belonging for new and returning students. Our department collaborates with over 25 departments and programs that showcase all of our resources on campus! Fall Welcome Week kicks off right after Bearkat Kickoff with Find your Classes and hosts around 70 events the first two weeks! Events during the fall range from Sammys Splash Party, Sammys Lip Sync Battle, Unityfest, the annual Bearkat Picnic, and more! During the spring, we host Bearkat Breakfast, Basketball Tailgates, Bearkat Spirit Friday, and more! Come out and see us during Welcome Week and let us show you why Sam Houston is your home away from home!
