Welcome Class of 2027!

Week of Welcome (WOW) is part of the First Year Experience at Marshall University. WOW serves as more than a class or program; it is an experience that is essential to the success of first-year students at Marshall. It is a collaborative, introductory effort to welcome, educate and socialize new, first-year students to the Marshall University campus, academic expectations, personnel, resources and traditions during the first few weeks of the fall semester.

Through Week of Welcome and UNI 100 students will

  • Understand what it means to be an accountable member of the Marshall Family.
  • Identify and understand important academic and campus resources, procedures and policies to create a successful Marshall experience.
  • Explore essential technology that will aid in student success.
  • Develop positive and influential relationships with university officials and peers.

Marshall’s Week of Welcome is an opportunity for students to ease the transition into college and so much more! It’s a time to find out what it means to be a son or daughter of Marshall University and to get acquainted with campus before upperclassmen return. It’s a time to learn how to take advantage of the academic and support services provided, meet new friends and HAVE FUN!
