The Perfect Beginning to Your Harris Experience

The new student orientation experience kicks off with the Welcome Address, a quintessential part of the orientation experience. This annual address is not only a chance for you to engage with other incoming students, but also to learn more about the impact of public policy and the academic journey you are about to embark on.

You'll be welcomed to campus and Harris by the Harris Student Government and you’ll learn from the President of the Harris Alumni Council, about Harris' fantastic alumni network you will soon join.
