Campus-wide Schedule

Welcome and congratulations! This is a very exciting time in your life as you begin your new journey, learning more about yourself and the world around you. Every year, students tell us that a key factor to their success is getting involved on campus and making a difference in their community.

Fall Welcome Week is designed for you to learn about the many opportunities available to you. During Welcome Week you will learn more about the academic resources and become familiar with the campus and the Santa Cruz community. Use this guide to become acquainted with the many workshops/events taking place campus-wide during Fall Welcome Week.

Notice that some academic and college workshops are REQUIRED/MANDATORY. We understand that you may not be able to attend some programming (due to religious holidays, family commitments or obligations, health issues, etc.). If you cannot attend a mandatory session, contact for support and additional session options.

Your academic and social transition to UC Santa Cruz is extremely important to us. Therefore, we expect you to actively participate in the many programs and services this first week and well beyond. So, start now and begin making connections!

The calendar below will provide you with campus-wide events. (Calendar details will be populated when 2024 information is available.) See your college-specific calendar to view activities your college is expecting you to participate in (some are required).

Welcome Week starts September 19 or after your move-in date!
