State Welcome

August 18 - September 20, 2020

During State Welcome, you will have the opportunity to explore social, academic, and professional development events during the first five weeks of the semester as you transition to becoming successful Sycamore. State Welcome is the kick-off to the semester, and whether you're new to campus or returning, we encourage you to experience as much as possible. As a new student, getting connected and involved on campus is a great way to feel at home. There are many different events from which to choose, so get out there and get to know campus, your new friends, and your new home a bit better! Share your experience with us by using #StateWelcome2020!

Welcome to the Family!
