University of Southern Indiana

Local Business Opportunity

Welcome Week is the kick-off for new students at the University of Southern Indiana!  It is a week full of activities and events to help them meet other new students, get adjusted to their new surroundings, and get off on the right foot to Business Oppstart their academic career at USI. 

Welcome Week starts August 17, 2017 with Welcome Week/Housing Check-in.  Roughly 1000 new students will move into campus housing and check-in for the Welcome Week program on this day. Again, this year we will provide the services our students need in one consolidated area, the Physical Activities Center. Students will check in for Welcome Week and campus housing, activate meal plans, register their vehicle, etc. As a local USI business you are invited to participate in this event.
