Fall 2021 Welcome Week
The Student Life team is excited to welcome students back to campus this Fall with a series of Welcome Week activities! These events serve as a kick-off celebration for the year, meant to energize and engage new and returning students, staff and faculty across campus.
The celebrations will begin on Monday, August 23, with events running through Thursday, August 26. Students will have the chance to build community, connect with various offices and departments across campus and win prizes. Careful planning has occurred to make sure all events are in alignment with Minneapolis College’s latest COVID-19 guidelines.
Find a full list of Welcome Week activities on the Student Life SharePoint website.
“Students should be excited about Welcome Week because they can find out about a variety of ways to get involved on campus,” said Campus Recreation and Wellness Coordinator, Drew Rongere. “We want students to do things that they love to do, make connections and continue to build life skills on their path to success at Minneapolis College."
Some of the many opportunities:
- Student Life Clubs
- Campus Recreation and Wellness
- Club Sports
- Outdoor Adventures
- Leadership Workshops
- Student Senate
- Mentor Programs
The Resource and Connections Fair will provide a great chance for students to connect and learn more about these various opportunities, along with the chance to connect with many other offices across campus. The Fair will be held on Wednesday, August 25 from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. on the T. Plaza, and will feature a cookout that is free to students. If you plan on attending, please fill out this RSVP to help Student Life prepare accordingly.
“My hope is to give students the opportunity to build a sense of community and/or to rebuild the community that they may have lost [over the last 18 months],” said Tonny Yang, Student Activities Coordinator. “Students should also look out for new events that will be brought to campus later this year!”
