Governors State University celebrates new and returning students with Welcome Week. This year’s events include activities to help students reconnect!

The festivities will kick off on Aug. 30 with the week long Jaguar Journey Virtual Scavenger Hunt with teams of up to six players. Student Activities Council (SAC) will also be giving out lucky bamboo plants in the Hall of Governors, while supplies last. 

Tuesday Aug. 31 will feature a Virtual Trivia: Music of the 2000’s. Or swing down to the E-Lounge at 7 pm for a night of singing, dancing, eating, and socializing at the "Back Like We Never Left Karaoke Night."

Meet the sixth President of GSU, Dr. Cheryl Green on Wednesday Sept. 1 while enjoying free pizza! Share stories. Ask questions. Get advice.

From tours of the award-winning Nathan Manilow Scultpure Park to an International Film Festival, students can welcome in the new semester together!
