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 and inclusion for new and returning students. Fall Welcome Week kicks off with Find your Classes and hosts around 55 events the first two week. 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, Bearkat BBQ Cook-Off, 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!
