RSVP For Welcome Day–Next Friday, Sept. 22

Dear Student,

Discover Your VillageWe’re excited about seeing you on campus for Welcome Day next Friday, Sept. 22, from 10 a.m. to noon. It’s a great opportunity for you to meet instructors, ask questions and learn all about the academic communities known as Villages at De Anza!

If you haven’t already signed up to attend, please click the yellow button to let us know. Along with campus tours and other activities, there will be snacks, free T-shirts and swag, plus a grand prize drawing for AirTags and a pair of AirPods. Look for "Check In" signs and flyers with instructions on how to enter the drawing during the event.


Each of the six Villages is based on your declared major, and it’s where you’ll find a supportive community of students, faculty and staff members who share your academic interests. During the school year, each Village will offer events and fun activities, keyed to your major and related subjects.

Most students join the Village that aligns with their major. If you haven’t declared a major (it's a requirement for getting priority registration) – or if you have a major such as Liberal Arts that covers more than one subject – you can choose a Village that interests you!

You'll find a list of majors and subjects for each Village on the Welcome Day webpage. (And don’t worry: You’re free to change your major, and your Village, at any time.)

Be sure to stop by your Village tent on the Main Quad during Welcome Day. We'll be posting a schedule of Welcome Day activities soon at, where you can sign up now to attend this event!

Best wishes,
De Anza College
