Welcome Week

August 31 - September 7, 2019

You’ve gotten all settled in at Michigan Tech for the year and are about to start classes. Now what?  It’s time for Welcome Week!  Every year, new and returning students are welcomed back to campus with this annual tradition that will get everyone into the Husky Spirit.

Welcome Week is an on-campus experience that kick-starts every fall semester.  This tradition is designed to complement the Orientation experience, and provide opportunities to enhance academic and personal success for Tech students.  The week is jam packed with social activities, food, entertainment, and much more!
