What are Welcome Week Leaders?
Welcome Week Leaders are student leaders here on campus whose goals are to ease the transition of incoming students to Sam Houston State University. They do this by promoting and taking part in Welcome Week events, encouraging students to engage, involve, and connect with fellow Bearkats and fostering Bearkat spirit. Welcome Week Leaders are a diverse group of students from different backgrounds all across campus who bring a variety of experiences and leadership traits that are a benefit to incoming students. Our mission is to build a sense of belonging with all of our Bearkats as well as developing an inclusive community among all students, faculty, and staff.
Our Welcome Week Leaders promote school pride and tradition and it is always our duty to welcome our new Bearkats from all walks of life into the Sam Houston family.
