Annual Signature Events

We know you’ve heard that an important part of your UofL experience is getting involved, and First Year Initiatives and our partners want to help make that easy for you to do. Welcome Week, WinterFest and Finals Fest will help you start and end each semester on a good note. Throughout the semester the CARDS Success Series and Book-in-Common events are a great way to experience UofL while earning rewards and possible scholarship dollars. In addition to having a good time at these events, you can also count on meeting interesting new people and connecting to useful resources on campus—all of which will help make it a great first year at UofL.  Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for exclusive event updates.

WinterFest 2018: Begins January 8

Like Welcome Week in August, you can look to WinterFest to find a wide variety of opportunities to get connected on campus and have a great time even in those grey January days.
