The First Days on Campus

Welcome Week

During Welcome Week, we officially welcome new students and their families into the Buena Vista University community and welcome back our returning students. It is a time of tradition, fun activities, and new beginnings.

Students walk through the Victory Arch

From move-in to the Victory Arch processional and more, there are many important events that take place during Welcome Week. There are also social activities designed to help new students get acclimated and involved in the co-curricular programs at BVU, as well as activities designed for families and returning students.

Watch this page for a full schedule and updated information about Welcome Week 2020!
