Weeks of Welcome

Students in front of San Jose State University wal

Weeks of Welcome programs and events take place during the first few weeks of each semester. The goal of Weeks of Welcome is to welcome new and returning students to campus, and provide support for new students as they transition into SJSU. On-campus, you may hear Weeks of Welcome informally referred to as "WOW."

Fall 2021 Weeks of Welcome will take place from Monday, August 16 to Wednesday, September 22. All events are designed to support your success as a student. To make it easier to identify programs you might be interested in, each one has been assigned to a category. The categories are:
