Welcome Weekend 2018 is an extension of the orientation program for Dominican University. The University welcomes new resident students to campus on Friday, August 24 from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. There is a full day of programming on Saturday, August 25, designed for students and their families. Guests will choose from a variety of workshops offered throughout the day, enjoy lunch with others new to the Dominican community, participate in a resource fair featuring many departments at the university, attend mass and join President Donna Carroll at a reception for new students and their families. Saturday night and Sunday provide multiple social events for new and continuing students to meet and get excited about starting the school year together.
