First-Year Welcome Weekend

Welcome Weekend is an important part of your Thiel experience—it is the beginning of four years that will shape your future. This program is designed to help you with the transition to college, to educate you about various on-campus opportunities, and to help you to begin forming lifelong friendships with your classmates. Together, we are Tomcat strong!

Students participating in activities and athletic programs that have an August camp, will receive more specific move-in information from your respective coach or instructor.  All students will also receive an email with information about move-in day on Saturday, August 21.
