Welcome Weekend is a core component of the USF First Year Experience and it is a three-day experience for all new students. During Welcome Weekend, students will have the opportunity to engage with faculty, staff, student leaders, and their peers. New students will get to experience our community at USF, and they will be equipped to begin their college career on a solid foundation through participating in sessions/activities that will encourage learning, leadership, and service.

Whether you are a first-time freshman or a transfer student, we want to ensure that you are equipped with the information, resources, and relationships needed for a transformational college experience at USF!  All new students are required to attend Welcome Weekend and will receive communication from the Office of First Year Experience regarding registration.
