TWOW: Triton Weeks of Welcome
Welcome. We're glad you're here.
Your student experience at UC San Diego begins with Triton Weeks of Welcome (TWOW), a campus-wide series of introductory activities, special programs, and signature events at the start of each academic year – designed to engage, inform, and welcome all students to the Triton community.
What is TWOW?
Triton Weeks of Welcome (TWOW) consists of:
- New student ORIENTATIONS;
- Residential MOVE-IN; and
- Traditional WEEK 0 welcome events
(like Triton UnOlympics, Convocation, Meet the Beach, Triton Fest and more)
"Week 0" Welcome Events
A part of TWOW, UC San Diego's Week 0 welcome events includes a series of collaborative activities designed to welcome all students to the UC San Diego community, like: concerts, resource center open houses, smaller departmental events, and College-specific events and opportunities.
These "must do" events are open to all – designed to instill Triton community pride, foster a sense of belonging, increase school spirit, and highlight some of the best things that our campus has to offer every Triton. Don't miss them!
Have questions or need more information about a particular event? Please email VCSA@ucsd.edu.
Please check this calendar regularly – details for all TWOW events will be posted here as they become available.
