Welcome Weeks

Welcome Weeks are are a time to welcome new students, forge or strengthen campus connections, and to have fun! From the Welcome Barbeque, to the Activities Expo, there's a lot to explore during this exciting time.


Homecoming is an annual celebration of UMass spirit where we welcome alumni home to campus to visit old sites and make new memories. Come build a parade float with your friends, grab a burger at the tailgate, and watch fellow students be crowned homecoming royalty!
