Weeks of Welcome


Weeks of Welcome

Involvement in Weeks of Welcome (or WOW, as it's known on campus) is one of the best ways for new students to dive into the Geneseo experience. The activities and events offered in the first weeks of the semester help incoming students build personal connections with other students, faculty and staff, and promote a sense of belonging.

Attending events and activities during Weeks of Welcome is the best way to start getting the most out of the academic year.

Interested in applying for a WOW 2019 Grant
