Welcome week 2001 begins Aug. 27 — First day of classes

Welcome Week 2001 begins Monday, Aug. 27, at California State University, Fresno through Wednesday, Sept. 5, as the university welcomes 19,400 students for fall semester classes.

Held annually the first week of instruction, this event greets new and returning students with activities and events, highlighted by the New Student Convocation, the Student Services Expo and academic department open houses.

During the event, coordinated by Student Activities and Leadership Development in Student Affairs, students can meet with representatives from various university programs that provide campus resources.

“They learn about such things as student leadership development, musical performances, lectures and Bulldog athletics,” said Frankie Moore, Welcome Week coordinator.

At the various academic department open houses, faculty and staff are available to discuss their programs and provide tours (see schedule below or at link to website at www.fresnostatenews.com.)

The Division of Student Affairs and University Student Union sponsor the Student Services Expo on Wednesday, Aug. 29, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Free Speech Area. Staff members are available at information tables to answer questions.

The New Student Convocation will be Tuesday, Sept. 4, from 2 to 3 p.m. in the Satellite Student Union where President John D. Welty and administration and faculty will address first-time freshmen and transfers.

The Community Services Opportunities Fair will be held Wednesday, Sept. 5, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Memorial Court in front of the Kennel Bookstore.
