Wildcat Welcome

Willie and students

What is Wildcat Welcome?

Wildcat Welcome is a program designed with transfer students in mind every step of the way. Led by your Transfer Peer Adviser--a junior or senior transfer student with Northwestern savvy and lots of purple pride--Wildcat Welcome will show you the ins and outs of college life at Northwestern. You will meet your fellow incoming and current transfer students, learn about the unique resources that Northwestern has to offer, and, most importantly, get so pumped for the years of deep friendships, academic enrichment, and all things purple that Northwestern can bring you! You can find more out about Wildcat Welcome here.

When is Wildcat Welcome?

New student move-in day is Friday, September 21, 2018, with many new student and transfer-specific required events running from September 21 through September 26. Classes begin on Thursday, September 27. All new students will come back together on Saturday, September 29th for the new student tailgate and dash across Ryan Field.

What about parents and/or family members?

Your parents and/or family are welcome to join us for Parent and Family Orientation , hosted the first two days of Wildcat Welcome.
