Weeks of Welcome (WOW) is a continuing orientation program for all new Concordia-Chicago students and serves as a welcome back to campus for returning students. Led by student volunteers, new and returning students have the opportunity to meet new friends, learn about campus resources, have fun, and participate in service opportunities. Some events during the week may be subject to change. Please check back often for the most up to date schedule!
