Welcome Weekend at Binghamton University is full of activities, socialization, and getting settled in. It is divided into two specific programs: New Student Days and Welcome Back Weekend.
New Student Days is a continuation of the Orientation program. This event marks the official start of the school year for all new students. Whether you attended orientation this summer or are a part of the fall orientation program, New Student Days is planned for you.
New Student Days kicks off with meeting the staff of your residential area followed by a community walk to New Student Convocation located in the University Event's Center. The President and Vice President for Student Affairs will address the entering class, as well as our keynote speaker Ravi Gupta '05! Immediately following will be the New Student Picnic BBQ, Alumni Association T-Shirt giveaway, banner signing, Target promotional event and much more!
Welcome Back Weekend kicks off right after the New Student Picnic with a movie screening in the Bearcats Sports Complex. Scheduled events continue through Labor Day, September 3rd. These days are filled with fun and exciting indoor and outdoor activities including Late Night Binghamton, Target Party, a variety of residential community sponsored events, University Fest, sporting events including soccer and rugby games, and a trip to the BMETS game! We conclude the festivities with Rec Fest on Labor Day. For specific events in your residential community, check out your communities specific Welcome Back Weekend events calendar.
