Week of Welcome

Week of Welcome brings new students to Salve Regina to learn more about campus life, resources, tips and tricks for success. Over the course of the week, students meet new people and experience what life at Salve Regina is like before heading into the academic year. This engaging program is required for all first-year and new students. Week of Welcome will be facilitated by orientation leaders, who are current students trained in making the transition to college fun and understandable, along with peer mentors who co-facilitate the First Year Transitions (FYT) course that students take in their first semester. This week also includes the academic Convocation, day of service and mandatory first-year requirements to complete prior to starting classes.
