Transitions - Fall 2021
SOAR is just the beginning!
As the summer comes to a close, first year students arrive at Western New England University and unlock a world of new opportunities. There will be many avenues to explore and plenty of opportunities for involvement. It is by taking full advantage of all that the University has to offer, that you will access the possibilities. It is through your participation that you will make connections and establish relationships. Going to Transitions events will be the beginning of memories made and stories yet to be told.
Your Guide to Transitions 2021
What is Transitions?
Transitions ushers in the academic year and allows students to explore the realities associated with academic and social responsibility. Transitions is filled with opportunities to join a club, sign the Community Covenant, attend Fall Convocation, search for student employment, enjoy food from local food trucks, listen to great live bands on the Commonwealth Lawn, and get to meet your fellow Golden Bears.
What is Happening on the First Weekend?
We have made every effort to make your first weekend at college fun and entertaining while allowing time to settle into the University community. Check out the Transitions 2021 Highlights flyer to see what we have planned! Some events include food trucks, acoustic music, First Night Fest featuring hypnotist Jim Spinnato, a carnival night in Rivers/Commonwealth Lawn, laser tag, and a Saturday Night Program put on by CAB and RHA.
