Welcome Week

Welcome Week is a series of fun and exciting events and opportunities to connect with other new Choctaws in your first week at Mississippi College.

Welcome Week (WW) is MC's official welcome to all new students! It is a week full of events and experiences to get adjusted and begin to settle in to life in the MC family. Although 2020 looks way different than we ever imagined, we've still planned an exciting week that will get you pumped to be a part of our campus community. WW is sponsored by the Office of Student Engagement and hosted by the Student Welcome Team, which includes Orientation Leaders and members of the Welcome Week Crew. WW will take place on August 8-14, 2020


We have an exciting lineup of events this year to help you transition right into life at MC! Keep in mind that some of our events will be happening in small groups in person, while some events will be happening virtually
