Winter Welcome Week just wrapped up

But we'll be doing it again next year!

​​Once fall quarter finals are wrapped up, students can hardly wait to go home and hibernate for six weeks. After the holidays pass and the days become a little mundane, most students are eager to jump back into the swing of things ​at DePaul. Student Affairs knows this, so in 2018 they started hosting a week-long series of fun events and activities during the first week of winter quarter to get everyone excited for the new quarter.

Although Winter Welcome Week 2020 wrapped up on Friday, January 10, keep it in mind for next year, and encourage your student to attend one or two (or more!) fun, free events. Past events have included cocoa and crafts, iceskating, a free lunch and Bingo night.

All events are free for DePaul students and are planned with everyone in mind--your student is sure to have a good time!
