All-American Welcome

What is All-American Welcome?

All-American Welcome is a multi-week celebration that welcomes new and returning students to campus. It starts with new student move-in and concludes in early September. It's a time to meet new friends, build community, explore involvement opportunities, and enjoy events and activities as you are welcomed (or welcomed back) to American University. The days of All-American Welcome are filled with a variety of events. There's something for everyone.  

All-American Welcome 2021 will be supersized to provide events for all members of our community as we return to campus this fall. There will be thoughtful programming planned for rising sophomore students. 

The All-American Welcome Leadership Team is currently in early stages of planning for this fall. Events will begin to be posted this summer, with a full schedule availible in early August.
