We are excited to offer a wide variety of programs (both in-person and virtual) at the beginning of the Spring 2022 semester. We will continue to update this page with more information to come later this year.

Rawkin' Welcome Weeks (RWW) is a great opportunity for students to continue the transition to college life at UNCG and find out what it means to be a Spartan. RWW hosts a number of events, all designed to help you get acclimated to campus by learning about academic support resources, campus programs and services, and most importantly, a chance to meet friends and make new Spartan connections. View the Spring 2022 or "Winterfest" schedule below to see examples of past events.
