Before classes begin in January, Welcome Weekend offers a mini-orientation to students beginning their St. Mary’s College of Maryland journey mid-year. Academic advising, social events and information about the college is offered to students with special information for parents, family members, and guests as well. This weekend intentionally addresses the needs of commuter and transfer students as they are the majority of students enrolling in January.
Welcome Weekend 2017 will be Sunday, January 15th and Monday, January 16th.
Welcome Weekend is open to all new first-year and transfer students beginning at SMCM in January, and will inform new students about academic and co-curricular opportunities available at St. Mary’s College. This two-day experience will allow incoming students to socialize with new peers, learn from student leaders, and become more familiar with the College.
