The year kicks off with our traditional WELLcome Week, which is required for all new incoming students. Incoming students regardless of residential status (i.e. residents and commuters) are expected to participate. Bay Path University's WELLcome Week program serves to establish the foundations for connection, preparation, and transition to college life. WELLcome Week will be hosted virtually this year. 

  • First, our new Wildcats will have the opportunity to participate in an exciting online course that will walk you through a series of modules providing a foundational understanding of Bay Path’s mission, policies, and provided services.
  • Then, leading up to the first week of class, during the week of August 31st, our energetic and lively Orientation Leaders will host several, fun and exciting, synchronous events to help build connections and foster community among incoming class members.
