IUPUI will begin the 2011-2012 academic year by welcoming incoming freshmen and transfer students with its annual New Student Welcome on Sunday, August 21 from 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the University College courtyard. This year’s theme is “Spots in the City” and the event will be highlighted by representation of the city’s six cultural districts.

The New Student Welcome will include a convocation, free snacks, outdoor activities, games, and giveaways.

Playfair will kick off the activities with an hour-long program of interactive, get-to-know-you entertainment in the courtyard in front of Taylor Hall.

This year’s event will also consist of outdoor activities including miniature golf, an art project, volleyball, basketball, and boxing.

Attendees will have the chance to receive free giveaways and win cash at the Indiana Members Credit Union booth.

The 2011 New Student Welcome is sponsored by the Indiana Members Credit Union, Central Indiana Community Foundation, Indianapolis Downtown Inc., Meijer Southport, Indy Party Rentals, Office of Student Involvement, University College, and University College Student Council (USCS).
