What is GEWW?

Golden Eagle Welcome Week (or GEWW for short) is how we officially welcome you to the Golden Eagle family!  GEWW will take place August 18-20, and first-year students will be divided into small groups led by a GEWW Crew member.  During GEWW, you will learn more about Southern Miss spirit and traditions (including the painting of the Eagle Walk), campus life, and student resources.  There will be a student involvement fair so that you learn more about student organizations that interest you.  Also, your GEWW Crew leader will check in with you throughout the first month or so of the fall semester to be sure that you're adjusting well to life at Southern Miss.

Incoming freshmen must attend events that are marked "required" on the agenda. 

There is no cost to participate in Golden Eagle Welcome Week.

If special assistance or auxiliary aids are needed to accommodate a disability, please contact the First Year Initiative 601.266.6405 or fyi@usm.edu to discuss accommodations at least one week prior to GEWW.
