Spring Break and Spring Welcome Programming During Wildcat Wellness

Similar to what we experienced at the start of Winter Quarter, all students will participate in a wellness period, Spring Welcome, March 29 through April 5, which coincides with the first week of classes. There are significant religious observances that will be exceptions to the wellness period, though care will be taken to follow masking and distancing protocols. 

Spring Welcome on Canvas provides students quick, direct access to view the full schedule, access programs, and learn more. All undergraduates will have access to the detailed daily calendar directly in Canvas, and some events require pre-registration and have limited capacity so be sure to encourage a look ahead on the calendar. Students will be able to tap into programs and activities into four categories: Social & Connections, Navigating Campus, Personal Wellness, and Northwestern Affinity. There will be opportunities throughout each day, during lunch hours, and on their own time. Check it all out!
