Welcome Weekend and First 50 Days

Welcome Weekend & First 50 Days is a series of events and programs designed to welcome new students to Miami University. Specifically, Welcome Weekend refers to the days before the start of classes, as new students prepare to begin the semester. First 50 Days is an extended period of transition programming open to all Miami students. The extended support of First 50 Days is designed to reflect the time when many students build connections, momentum, and belonging on campus. 

  • Welcome Weekend, Friday, August 14 - Sunday, August 16
  • First 50 Days, Monday, August 17- Sunday, October 4 

Welcome Weekend programs will be facilitated 100% online. Events for First 50 Days will be online through the start of move-in week, after which in-person events will be small-scale and require advance sign-up through the Orientation and Transition mobile guide, within the Miami University Events app. All events will operate according to policies and protocol outlined in Miami's Healthy Together website. 

All events will be listed in our Orientation and Transition mobile app and listed on the Welcome Week web calendar, which will be published in early August.
