Week of Welcome has what you need for your first week of class

News Staff - Sat Sep 03, 2011

Come one, come all, the annual Week of Welcome celebration is back! The U of A Students’ Union is providing a plethora of fun, food, and excitement with activities of all sorts. Free pancake breakfasts and a whole host of free musical performances are sure to entice the financially savvy, while food and beer can be found daily at the BBQ and Beer Gardens. Don’t forget to pick up your student handbooks at one of our info tents and check out the clubs fair to see what student groups have to offer you. Also, win some sweet prizing or get some delicious goodies from quad activities, which run daily Wednesday to Friday.

After the sun goes down, Week of Welcome has nightly shows guaranteed to entertain: from the sidesplitting comedic performance of hypnotist Wayne Lee, to the high energy music stylings of Dragonette ft. USS, to the free double feature movie night. Be sure to finish your first week of classes with a bang at the Mainstage event, which occurs in our very own Quad on the Saturday. This massive concert features a fantastic line-up of Michael Bernard Fitzgerald, The Midway State, and The Dudes, all topped off with the insatiable Shout Out Out Out Out. Get your tickets from one of our many ticket tables, or buy online if you just can’t wait.
