As Sam Houston State University prepares to welcome students for the spring semester, the Department of Student Activities has been busy planning a large number of special events for Welcome Week 2019: Spring Edition, for new and returning Bearkats, Jan. 14-18.

Spring Welcome Week offers an opportunity for departments to introduce, or re-introduce, students to the activities or resources available to them throughout the semester.

The vast array of performances, workshops and lectures provide a platform for students to mingle with peers and integrate themselves into the diverse culture and rich history of SHSU.

On Jan. 14 and 15 at 11 a.m. in the Olson Auditorium, the SAM Center, Student Money Management Center, Academic Success Center and Student Success Initiatives will offer an information circuit where students can ask questions and prepare for their upcoming semester. Pizza and prizes will be offered.
