Wildcat Weekends provides a calendar of programs occuring during the first four weekends of the fall quarter that provide an opportunity for first-year students to continue exploring the community and connecting with peers. First years will be notified of the calendar once they arrive to campus via the First Year Guide mobile and web-based app, email, and Wildcat Welcome social media accounts.
Why Wildcat Weekends?
From the minds of current students, Wildcat Weekends is an initiative to provide space for students to continue meeting others, exploring the vast opportunities at the University, and assist students with assimilation with academics. Wildcat Weekends brings together student organizations, your PA group, those who live on your floor in the residence hall, and various campus offices to provide programming and resource access at just the time you need it. The first six weeks in a new community are the most crucial in a student's transition, and Wildcat Weekends will provide programming to assist with social and academic transition.
