Welcome Week - New Student Orientation

Welcome Week will be one of the most exciting and fast-paced times of your college life. Not only will you meet many of the students, faculty and staff who make up the Belhaven family, but you will also learn your way around campus and begin to make Belhaven University your home. The staff in the Office of Student Leadership is responsible for the planning and implementation of Welcome Week. Feel free to contact our office if you have questions. We look forward to seeing you on August 20!
