Welcome Week

Welcome Week – 7 days of learning about what to expect and connecting to other students, faculty, key resources and services! Following the excitement of Move-in Day, there are three days of getting to know your classmates, student leaders, and professors, learning about the various resources and services that will help you to succeed at Regent, and signing up for exciting opportunities from the Offices of Student Activities & Leadership and Campus Ministries. We continue Welcome Week with the annual First Friday Frenzy, a service opportunity on Saturday, and the First Chapel on Sunday. Start the school year off right and get connected. This event is required by all freshmen 23 and younger.

Parents are welcome to attend the official welcome and family worship and ice cream social on the evening of Move-in Day. There is no programming for parents or family beyond Move-in Day.
