Welcome Week

Welcome Week is designed to introduce new freshman and transfer students to all Belhaven has to offer and to welcome returning students back to campus for a new semester.

All students are invited to participate in this action-packed week of events planned to help form friendships, acclimate to campus and the community, and set you up for a successful year. New students meet in upperclassmen-led peer groups before the first day of class to answer frequently asked questions, help learn about Belhaven’s campus and traditions, and forge lasting relationships. Every event that we have planned for this week will help you get acquainted with our campus and the surrounding area, meet your fellow Blazers, and understand that you belong here and are an important part of our university.

Orientation and Welcome Week for new students will begin on Friday, January 8, and classes begin on Monday, January 11.  See link below to view the schedule, but keep in mind, this may change as we continue to prepare for a safe return for all of Belhaven University.

The first day of Welcome Week on January 8 will begin at Check-In from 8:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. in the Student Center.  If you are a residential student, you may move into your residence hall after Check-In. Academic Advising and Registration will be available from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. At 3:30 p.m., all new students will attend the Mandatory New Student Orientation on the second floor of Dr. Billy Kim International Center. After Orientation, a Peer Group Meeting and New Student Dinner will conclude the first day of Welcome Week.  Events continue throughout the weekend and the following week.

This year has been unprecedented and Belhaven is implementing many safety precautions to protect our students, faculty, and staff as we begin this new semester. Please read our Belhaven Promise expectations and guidelines as you prepare to come to campus.
