Welcome Days activities on the hilltop celebrate the arrival of students on campus for a new academic year. And this year, the tradition has been more festive than ever!

During Move-in Days and Anchors (our special Orientation for new students), the university community came together to help students settle into their residence halls and get acquainted with their hilltop family. It was an exciting and fun time of new experiences and friendships as students prepared for classes to begin on Aug. 22.

Welcome home, Hilltoppers! We’re happy you’re here. Toppers up for an amazing year!
