Welcome Days

Welcome Days is a free, three-day extended orientation program that takes place all around campus led by HCU students who are passionate about making the first year at HCU a success for the freshmen and transfers. Every Pack Leader has valuable personal experience, so they can offer advice about classes, fun things to do in Houston, and anything else you need as you begin your journey as a Husky!

Why Attend Welcome Days?

Welcome Days is an experience that incoming Huskies won’t want to miss. The purpose of Welcome Days is to give students an opportunity to have fun, find your fit, and learn more about life at HCU. We hope that through Welcome Days, students will begin finding their place in the Husky Family prior to classes even starting!
