Golden Eagle Welcome Week is designed to welcome freshmen and transfer students to the Southern Miss community. It’s a week filled with meeting new friends, learning Southern Miss traditions and plugging students into clubs and organizations.
Students are divided into groups by major and led by upperclass students who were selected by the Office of First Year Experience.
During the week, students participate in festivities such as painting the Eagle Walk, magic and talent shows, pep-rallies and sessions designed to orient new students to life at Southern Miss.
GEWW 2012 greeted record participation and prepared for a crowd of nearly 1,500 new students.
