Weekend of Welcome - "WOW"

Weekend of Welcome or "WOW" is Part II of the Freshman Orientation Experience!  WOW is a unique first year experience designed to help new students "track their path to college success", and further orient them to Pacific, our resources, and campus culture.  WOW occurs the weekend prior to the start of the fall semester.  During WOW all new freshmen participate in a weekend of fun, engaging and informative activities and sessions all designed to prepare them for success at University of the Pacific.  New students will learn about services and programs encompassing all of Pacific's 8 dimensions of wellness and how to access these programs. 

WOW is a collaboration of faculty, staff, and student leaders who partner together to provide first year students with a supportive and encouraging environment. During this weekend new students will meet fellow students, faculty and staff, and come to think of University of the Pacific and Stockton as their new home. 

WOW begins with a variety of fun activities you won't want to miss, just for our new students on Thursday eve, August 21st.  New students will then participate in a variety of programming throughout the weekend, concluding on Sunday, August 24th at lunch with your Student Advisor.
