DANBURY, Conn. -- Western Connecticut State University will host “Welcome Week” for new and returning students from Monday, Aug. 25, through Monday, Sept. 1, at various locations in Danbury.

Part of the university’s Orientation Program, “Welcome Week” provides incoming students and their families with a set of shared experiences, setting the tone for student academic success and personal growth while facilitating the transition to university life.

On Monday, Aug. 25, WestConn will hold its traditional “Entering the Gates” ceremony at 1:30 p.m. through the gates on the university’s Midtown campus near downtown Danbury. Faculty, staff, alumni and new and returning students will take the ceremonial walk through the gates to signify the start of another school year.
