Weeks of Welcome

Whether you are a new Scot or have been at the College for a few years, Lyon College wants to give you a warm welcome. During the Weeks of Welcome, numerous departments and staff will work to connect students with university resources, student organizations, and the surrounding community. The Weeks of Welcome start Friday, August 17th and ends Tuesday, August 28th, 2018. With activities ranging from a big student art project to a chance to explore some of the Ozarks' natural wonders, stand-up comedy and karaoke to the Freshmen raft race, and Kickball tournaments to a Casino night, there is something for everyone!
