About WOW

Weeks of Welcome is the official start of a new academic year. It is a transitional time when students become familiarized with the campus community and prepare for their academic endeavors.


Active and positive participation in Weeks of Welcome is one of the principal ways in which new students can start to become part of the Geneseo experience. The activities offered aid in increasing personal connections with other students, faculty and staff and in promoting a sense of belonging.


The events offered help educate and provide an understanding of the importance of academic excellence and community at Geneseo. Attending events and activities during Weeks of Welcome is the best way to start getting the most out of the academic year.
