August 6, 2014 (Jackson) - Belhaven University's Welcome Week will begin on Saturday, August 16 and we are looking forward to having our students back on campus for an exciting year. New freshmen and transfer students will have a busy week of moving-in and getting settled into college life. Academic advising and other informative events will help students prepare for their semester of study. Student events such as Recreation Day, an outdoor BBQ, a late night breakfast, coffeehouse and square dance are some of the many activities students can look forward to.

Everything you need to know about the week's events can be found in the Welcome Week schedule.

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.

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.
