AUGUST 14-19, 2016
What is Welcome Week?
From Move in Day to the first day of classes, Welcome Week is full of activities and programs that give new students an opportunity to lay a foundation for a successful collegiate experience.
Welcome Week serves as a great opportunity for new students to get connected to their university both academically and through extracurricular activities. Programs such as the Opening Convocation, college meetings, and Conway Daze focus on helping these new students get plugged into UCA. Welcome Week also provides opportunities for new students to make new and lifelong friends to share their college experience with. It is our hopes that Welcome Week will help these students adjust to college life and ultimately reach a goal shared by faculty, staff, parents, and students alike- a college degree.
Conway Daze will be held on Wednesday, August 17, 2016 from 2:30 – 5:30 p.m. at the UCA Student Center Courtyard and Amphitheater. Guests will be able to browse the vendor areas, pick up information, coupons, discounts, and free give away items, participate in games and leave more knowledgeable about Conway. The Back to School Pep Rally will take place immediately following Conway Daze at the UCA Practice Field. At this time the Bear Den will lead the new students in their first UCA pep rally. Here the UCA Band will finish the pep rally by playing and leading the students by marching to the UCA Football Scrimmage games. This serves as a great opportunity for these students to not only experience a D-1 atmosphere but to learn how to further support their UCA Bears…and our purple field.
