What are Welcome Days?

The first week of autumn semester, we welcome students new and returning with a series of events we call Welcome Days.  These events encourage community, connection and celebration for all students attending OSU ATI.  Starting the year off right is essential to a successful college career!

While some events are mandatory, many are simply free happenings on campus that students choose to take part in.

Why Take part in welcoming days?

Incoming Students

(see schedule for mandatory events)

Orient yourself to campus surroundings, fellow students and faculty and staff!

Taking part in Welcome days will ease some of the anxiety you may feel as you start your college career.  You’ll begin to recognize familiar faces and bond with new friends and roommates and find your way around campus.  College is a big new step in your life journey – don’t do it alone!

Returning Students

Anticipate a great new year and make it happen!

You know where to go and what to do, so it’s time to meet up with old friends and make new ones.  Bond with roommates while you have some fun!  If you’re commuting, these events are a perfect time for you to connect with other students like you!  A new year means a new start, so kick it off right!

Start the year with FREE food, festivities and freebees!

One of the highlights of college life has to be FREE food, FREE swag and FREE activities!  We’ve got something for everyone, introverts, extroverts and a little of both.  

You’ll also have the opportunity to learn about what Wooster has to offer as your new home and what ATI is all about!

Use these unique opportunities to get your head in the game and be successful at OSU ATI!

College is an amazing experience that will allow you to explore new ideas and viewpoints, meet awesome new friends and learn information that will shape the rest of your life.  And just like life, it’s easier when done with others.  Join us and your fellow students as you start this extraordinary journey!

Take advantage of the freebees!

We know what you want – free food, free swag, free fun. Welcome days is one of the best times of the year for freebees.  Take advantage and make memories that will last a lifetime!

Involvement makes everything easier!
