LA GRANDE, Ore. September 7, 2016 – New students will soon be unpacking, getting to know their roommates and becoming familiar with campus during Week of Welcome (WOW) at Eastern Oregon University.
“We’re excited to share with our new EOU students what it means to be a Mountaineer,” said Kathryn Shorts, WOW coordinator. “During Week of Welcome, we will build community, face challenges as a team, grow our EOU pride and spend time outdoors. Everything we have planned is intended to launch their Eastern experience in the right direction and assist with transitioning to campus.”
Move-in at the residence halls starts at 9 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 21, followed by a family farewell social from 2-4 p.m. After dinner in the Mountie Café, non-traditional and transfer students are invited to an orientation from 6-8 p.m. in the Learning Center in Loso Hall, Room 234.
