Traditionally occurring one to three days prior to Syracuse Welcome, new students are encouraged to participate in a Pre-Welcome Program. Organized by interests and identity spaces, programs offer students the opportunity to meet and connect to fellow new students in small groups. From outdoor adventure to on-campus acclimation, there are programs for all interests! For questions, please email New Student and Family Programs or call 315.443.9187.

Pre-Welcome Highlights

  • Familiarize yourself with campus and resources that will support your transition to Syracuse University.
  • Build community with other incoming students and student leaders.
  • Develop skills that will help you succeed during your first year on campus.


Details and registration for Pre-Welcome Programs will be shared in spring 2023. Move-in for each program is noted with the start date.
