Welcome Weekend is held the weekend before the start of each fall semester. Full of fun and informational festivities, this event helps kick off the new school year. The weekend includes residence hall move-in and provides a rulebook for each student to follow in the beginning of his or her academic journey. Students admitted to the fall semester should watch the mail and Pierpont’s homepage for more information about Welcome Weekend. Students who enroll in classes at the Gaston Caperton Center in Clarksburg, WV should watch for information on the Back-to-School Bash held at that location around the same time.
