What is Welcome Week?
Welcome Week is a 4-day residential welcome program for any incoming first-year or transfer student that will be living in the residential halls or residential suites during Fall 2013.

- Welcome Week residents participate in lots of fun activities that help them integrate into on-campus living and become part of the Cal Poly Pomona community.
- Welcome Week participants have lots of opportunities to meet and interact with other students living in their residence communities before their first day of classes.
