Freshman Welcome Days

Now that you're officially a La Roche Redhawk, it's time to prepare for your first semester on campus.

Held specifically for deposited students, Welcome Day gives you the chance to meet your future classmates while preparing for your first semester of college.

NOTE: During the Covid-19 health crisis, we are moving some, if not all, Welcome Days to a virtual format. Some of the activities listed below may be modified to accommodate the virtual format.

By attending a Welcome Day, you'll be able to do the following:

  • Get a jump-start on a successful transition to college

  • Confirm your fall schedule of classes
  • Talk with Financial Aid specialists who will answer any last minute questions
  • Hear from representatives from Student Academic Support Services, Student Life, the Registrar’s Office, Student Accounts, and Residence Life
