Welcome Home to Weeks of Welcome (WOW) 2021!
We're excited to welcome new and returning Tar Heels to our community! We're starting the year off safely and excitingly with over two weeks of programs, events, and special opportunities all geared to welcome you to UNC, help you learn about your new home, and get you connected to other new students!
WEEKS OF WELCOME BACK is January 10-21, 2022. What better way to welcome Tar Heels to campus in January than with another WOW?!
Students and Families - NSFP and the WOW Board are offering the following events currently (subject to change). A full online schedule will be released in mid-December. In the meantime, familiarize yourself with heellife.unc.edu, our go-to online schedule for all things UNC student life.
Springboards: dedicated mix-n-mingle spaces for special student populations, including Transfer, International, Out-of-State, and General First-Year students.
Meals on WOW: working with local restaurants to provide meals at reduced or no-cost to students and offering communal spaces for meal-sharing and connection
Escape Rooms: groups can test their skills to escape themed game rooms before time runs out
Service Day: students will be provided an opportunity for service in the Union and potentially connect with larger service orgs. for continued engagement
Trivia Night: groups with wits and speed to match compete to show who knows the most in our largest trivia event yet
Heel Meets World- Puppies in the Pit: working with local groups to bring comfort animals to the Pit area to support student wellness and provide helpful how-to guides for the semester
Silent Disco: the grand finale of WOWB is a dance party where there's never a bad song, since students can choose from one of three preset channels to dance to with friends to end WOWB
Student Organizations & Campus and Community Partners - We welcome you to submit events for WOWB this January. Email thb (at) unc.edu for details and consultations.
