"Welcome Week" is designed for new students to become better acquainted with college life and prepare for their first semester, Welcome Week is a series of fun events that will give first-year students a taste of what the C of I has to offer in the week leading up to the official beginning of the fall semester.

Welcome Week for the 2018-19 academic year begins on August 24.

By the end of the week, students will not only be settled into their new dorm rooms, they will have built a set of memories that will stay with them throughout their entire college experience.
