Weeks of Welcome

VCU kicks off the new school year with Weeks of Welcome (WoW), a month-long collection of contests, prizes, and more than 100 events!  WoW is designed for both new and returning students.  Wow events will help you learn about VCU traditions and resources, explore campus, and meet new people.  The WoW schedule will be released at the beginning of each fall semester.
