Welcome Week

Welcome Week 2023


The Office of University Student Affairs would like to congratulate you once again on your acceptance to WesternU. We look forward to supporting you as you work towards your educational goals.

Save the date! Welcome Week (New Student Orientation) for our WesternU Oregon students will take place in Lebanon, Oregon the first week of July for the College of Health Sciences-Northwest and from July 31 – August 4, 2023 for the College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific-Northwest. Welcome Week for all other students will occur in Pomona, California from August 7 – 11, 2023. The start date varies by your program so check back to see when you need to be on campus. All Welcome Week activities are mandatory unless otherwise noted. 

We will post more details as it becomes available so check back for program-specific information. In the meantime check out what the University has to offer before you arrive! Both WesternU campuses are teeming with opportunities for volunteering, joining on-campus clubs, running for student government and so much more. Learn how you can get involved: Pomona | Lebanon.

If you have any questions regarding Welcome Week, feel free to contact us.

Again, welcome to WesternU!

Note Regarding covid-19


While is it our hope that all University events can occur to welcome our new students in 2023, we may not be able to conduct them in the traditional WesternU Way. We will make compliant decisions while following national, state, and local directives, and will do our best to keep you informed.
