First Year Students!

We are  excited to welcome you to campus. In order to assist in your transition, we’ve organized a “Welcome Weekend” for you that will re-introduce you to your Mentor, give you the opportunity to meet your FYF professor, provide you with a little bit more knowledge about the campus, and give you some free time to meet your peers. 

Welcome Weekend is a 3 day program for all residential and commuter first year students. Registration for Welcome Weekend is not required.

Resident Students: Move-in for First-year student residents will take place on Friday, August 22 from 6:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Please visit www.wilkes.edu/moveinday for more information, such as move in dates and times, instructions on how to pick up your keys, and a suggested packing list.
