Welcome Class of 2018

The beginning of your first year at the University of Mount Olive is almost here.  We are excited that you will be joining us for Welcome Week beginning on Saturday, August 16thand continuing through Monday, August 18th!  Success here at the University depends on each of you establishing a strong foundation of academic and social experiences from the very beginning.  Our Welcome Week  program is designed to help you get acclimated and connected to college life here at the University of Mount Olive before classes begin. 

You will have the opportunity to ask questions, meet your fellow classmates, learn and participate in university traditions, and to have lots of fun!   Some of the activities planned as part of Welcome Week are small group sessions led by orientation leaders, the class of 2018 picture, Convocation and the Candlelight Ceremony, as well as Trivia, the Annual Foam Party, and more.  Please plan to participate in the program for its entirety whether you are a resident or commuter student.  We look forward to seeing you here on campus!
