Welcome Week is a transitional program for incoming students that covers important topics such as student life, academics, and safety and well-being. During Welcome Week you will work with your Orientation Leaders, meet your Learning Specialist and other staff members who are here to help you along your journey!

Families are not required to attend Orientation; however, we will have family-specific programs that we hope you can make it to.  A full schedule of events will be available soon.

As for every entering class before you, Beacon has devoted the days before classes start to guide and ease your transition to college life. The College’s faculty and staff understand how vitally important this time of discovery and “settling in” can be for you and your peers as you join our proud community.

Our student engagement professionals and student leaders have invested considerable time, care and creativity to ensure that Welcome Week affords you and your classmates the necessary time and offerings to become familiar with Beacon’s campus and people, learn about collegiate expectations and responsibilities, and become accustomed to new routines and resources. This is especially critical as you become part of the “Responsible Community” on campus during the COVID era.

Congratulations and we look forward to seeing you soon!
