UNCWelcome Back

The UNCWelcome Back program is when we welcome our returning students back to campus and welcome, for the first time, our new first-year class and transfer students. We strive to provide fun and entertaining programs that will remind you why you chose UNCW to be your "home away from home". So come out and celebrate the new year and the new semester with us!
