Each Village is a supportive community of students, faculty and staff members with shared interests and goals. Your Village will offer events and fun activities, keyed to your major and related subjects, throughout the year.

How do you find the right village?

It's easy: If you’ve already declared a major, you’re in a village! Check the Welcome Day website for a list of majors in each Village. If you don’t have a major, you’re welcome to join any Village that interests you. (And you are free to change at any time.)

Watch for another email soon with more information about your Village and the activities you can expect on Welcome Day! You can also learn more and view the short video at We’ll be posting more details about Welcome Day activities and how to RSVP for this event.
