Welcome Weekend

Welcome to Holy Cross College!

August 24-26, 2019

Holy Cross College Welcome Weekend

Welcome Weekend at Holy Cross provides a welcoming environment that caters to new and transfer students alike. This unique experience introduces the students to our campus culture, traditions, and family atmosphere, while maintaining a balance between academics and fun. Students and parents will find the transition into the Holy Cross family effortless.

Welcome Weekend is designed to provide new students with the information they will need to have a successful first year at Holy Cross. We want to help you understand necessary policies and procedures, familiarize you with campus services and opportunities, and aid in your academic, personal, social, and spiritual adjustment.

Parents are invited to help their students move-in on Saturday, August 18th, and join in the day’s celebrations and activities. Activities for parents will conclude with dinner on Saturday.

Welcome Weekend is mandatory for all new students who will be attending Holy Cross College.
