The Weeks of Welcome (WOW) program is designed to connect the UMSL community together during the first six weeks of school by providing educational, entertaining, cultural and creative programming to enhance new and returning students to campus.When students check-in at their residence hall or attend the Transfer or Freshman Commuter Meet and Greet session, they will receive the WOW Guide booklet. This booklet includes the scheduled events and other helpful resources during Weeks of Welcome.

Also, stop by a Help-A-Triton table around campus for directions, maps, answers to your questions, and to pick up a WOW Booklet. Our Welcome Crew is here to help!

Don't forget to join us during Triton Take-Off Weekend on August 18-20, 2017 . It's a 3-day experience prior to classes beginning!

Triton Challenge 

Learning about life as a Triton doesn’t stop when school starts. Triton Challenge is our campus-wide comprehensive list of events that provides UMSL first-year students the opportunity to continue meeting other students, connecting with campus resources, and getting to know the University, all while having a ton of fun! 

These workshops will help you:

During the first six weeks, we challenge all new students to complete at least eight events around campus. These events highlighted will allow you to swipe at these events to upload and tally your attendance. If you complete eight events, (2) events from each category, you will be eligible for prizes that will be given out at our Mid-Semester Extravaganza event.

Throughout the weeks of welcome booklet you will notice logos that represent the following categories:
