August 15, 2012 (Jackson) - Welcome Week is almost here and we are looking forward to having our students back on campus. Incoming freshmen and transfer students will be moving in this weekend and can look forward to the start of an amazing year.

The week will be filled with many fun activities like the BU carnival, late night breakfast, off-campus road trip and movie night as well as informative events that will help students prepare for the upcoming semester. The Welcome Week schedule has been updated for both students and parents, so don’t forget to take a look at the changes.

The Welcome Week Guide, provided at check-in on Saturday, will give additional information about events, resources and the staff. Students can turn in all necessary forms and paperwork while getting their mailbox key, student ID card and car decal. Welcome Week is also a good time for students to meet professors and staff while spending time with other classmates.

All new Belhaven parents will receive their own packets at check-in that will include their own agenda and guide to Belhaven. Parents will also have an orientation and welcome dinner. The Welcome Week schedule for parents will give them a chance to meet faculty and staff, a look into college life and a glimpse into what is happening at Belhaven this year.
