Goals of Weeks of Welcome (WOW!)

  • To develop campus wide events specific to first-year and transfer students aimed at helping new students make the transition from high school or community college to the University of Florida
  • To provide new students with resources and campus information that was not provided and/or retained at Preview or Transfer Orientation
  • To help foster a sense of pride about being a Florida Gator
  • To teach new students about the history and traditions of the University of Florida
  • To inform new students about their rights and responsibilities as members of our community
