Week of Welcome is more than a meet-and-greet, it's your chance to truly become a Saint Rose Golden Knight.

Week of Welcome

The Office of Student Life is committed to helping Saint Rose students throughout their collegiate journey. The first part of this new journey is Week of Welcome. During Week of Welcome, you will have the chance to participate in a wide range of activities designed to introduce you to our vibrant campus life while making new friends and connections. Our goal for Week of Welcome is to help you become better acquainted with your new home at The College of Saint Rose.

Week of Welcome kicks off with a bang every year with a favorite among first-year parents and students alike — Move-in Day! We know the transition to college can be an emotional time for families, let alone having to haul a room’s worth of belongings into a new place. To help you, Saint Rose has a team of Arrival Assistants ready to move your belongings to make your transition as smooth as possible.

Of course, your welcome to campus does not end with being moved into your residence hall. You will find a seemingly endless schedule of Week of Welcome activities to choose from to learn more about life as a Saint Rose Golden Knight. Previous events have stretched anywhere from open mic night to a New York Yankees game. Nationally-known comedians are sure to bring a smile (some favorites of the past: Jamie Lissow, Jared Campbell, Eric O’Shea). Hypnotist Dan LaRosa and a featured comedian/magician guarantee amusement and the campus green is busier than ever during Week of Welcome, with music and games, as well as a “drive-in movie”.

By the end of the week, you will have made new friends, great memories, and feel like a true Saint Rose student. We cannot wait to welcome you!
