Social Media

An introduction to traditions, facets of the student experience, and building connection with community members through social media engagement. Daily posts from Wildcat Welcome accounts provide opportunities for incoming students and their families to celebrate their upcoming start to Northwestern and begin to connect to the larger community.

Before the Arch provides you with a direct way to learn about preparing for Northwestern from the lens of current students! This summer engagement series provides you a chance to learn how to prepare for the transition, be introduced to bits about Northwestern and Evanston/Chicago, and begin building connections with other incoming students!

Before the Arch consists of videos, programs, live video rooms, and more, all shared directly on the Wildcat Welcome social media accounts. To find the content, be sure to follow Wildcat Welcome on Instagram and join the 2025 and Transfer Facebook group. If you do not have an Instagram - no worries! You now have access to Before the Arch content through our Wildcat Welcome Canvas course.
