Welcome Days

Hilltopper Welcome Days is our opportunity to welcome new students to the St. Edward’s University community. 

Get ready to begin your college experience on the hilltop, learn about new opportunities for involvement, services and programs to find your place and meet new people, make new friends, and — perhaps most importantly — have a good time!

Move-in Weekend events for the whole family include the First Friday Block Party, Welcome BBQ, and Mass of the Holy Spirit. Events for incoming students only include Anchors (must pre-register), the Medallion Ceremony, Legacy Walk, along with the remaining Welcome Days events that occur after Move-in Weekend.

We ask that all families make plans to leave campus no later than Sunday, Aug. 23 at 3 p.m., leaving the new students available to participate in Medallion Ceremony and Legacy Walk as a class.
