First Year Fall Welcome

move in

Fall Welcome is a two-day program for all residential and commuter first-year students, taking place on Saturday, 8/25/18 - Sunday, 8/26/18. 

First-year residential students will move into their residence halls Saturday, August 25, 2018, and the Fall Welcome program will begin at 1 pm that same day.

Following move in, commuter students meet up with the rest of the Class of 2022 for a few days of fun before classes start!

Fall Welcome festivities will take place both on and off campus, allowing for our new students to get a better feel for life at Marywood and Northeast Pennsylvania.

Registration for the Fall Welcome is not required. All are invited and expected to attend. Students will receive additional information about the Fall Welcome in their Marywood University email on August 1, 2018.
