August is an exciting time at JMU and we are excited to welcome our newest dukes to campus and the community. Weeks of Welcome is a program designed to help students get acclimated to campus, learn all about the resources available to support their success, and connect with other new students, faculty, staff, and administrators.  Once students have move-in to their on-campus or off-campus location for the semester, there will be a variety of mandatory educational programs and optional social programs throughout the first few weeks of the semester. To view a full schedule of events, download the JMU Be Involved app. Instructions for downloading JMU Be Involved and accessing the 2023 Weeks of Welcome schedule can be found below.
