Move-in Day and Welcome Week

The opening of each semester is a wonderful opportunity for you to immerse yourself in campus life and get to know your classmates before classes begin. Led by current students and staff, scheduled activities will take you on a deep-dive into our beautiful campus and surrounding areas through a series of field trips, games and service projects. Welcome Week is critical for your success as you transition as a new Montreat College student, therefore participation is mandatory.
