Weeks of Welcome

The Weeks of Welcome program, known as WOW, is the University of Richmond's welcome initiative for new and returning students. WOW consists of a series of events and programs in the first weeks of the semester that aim to build inclusive community within our campus, by creating opportunities for students to develop strong interpersonal relationships and to experience the true meaning of Spider Pride!
