Week Of Welcome

The University of Central Missouri’s Week of Welcome (WOW) is a large series of programs hosted by the University to help first year, transfer students and non-traditional students in their transition to academic and student life. The official days of WOW are Sunday through Saturday. WOW is only one week, but the possibilities are endless!

All the activities are free of charge for you to attend. Engagement in these activities will help you start off your college career on the right path.


One of the rich traditions at UCM is the annual Convocation to signify your official start of your college career. The brief but very special ceremony is filled with colorful symbols and rituals of academia, and is designed to introduce you to the university’s academic culture. Convocation will be held on Friday, August 10 at 9 am in the Student Recreation & Wellness Center.
