Weeks of Welcome (WoW) occur the first two weeks of each semester and are jam packed with events meant to encourage you all to become engaged with your fellow students, staff, and faculty. WoW connects students with organizations, important resources and supportive environments. We highly encourage both new and returning students to attend to get a jump start on their engagement for the semester.
Held near the beginning of Fall and Spring semester, Commuter Student Appreciation Week focuses on all things commuters. Events will vary depending on weather and seasons but we always focus on highlighting and honoring our commuters through treats, prizes, and events.
Homecoming & Family Weekend, held in October, brings together alumni, students, friends, and families together to celebrate our Husky Pride and enjoy a variety of fun events across the Gorham Campus. Cheer on USM Athletics at one of the many games to be seen that weekend.
Stress Relief Week is offered twice a semester during finals, as a way to help students take short breaks from their workloads and avoid burnout. We strive to offer a variety of activities during this time that are aimed at relaxation and refocusing. While events may vary, they always have the goal of providing students with an opportunity to engage in mindfulness and mental health activities.
Spring Fling is offered toward the end of the spring semester and is filled with a variety of activities that allow our community to celebrate the return of nice weather and get a boost as we work toward the end of the academic year. As with all of our traditional events, the specific activities vary from year to year, but the fun is always front and center.
Throughout the year, Student Engagement & Leadership hosts a variety of events exclusive to the graduating class. These events vary from year to year but what doesn’t change is us celebrating all our graduates have accomplished.
