Welcome Weekend

Welcome Weekend is the time when Grace welcomes new students to campus. This is a free orientation weekend event introducing new students and their parents to the Grace campus family.

We look forward to welcoming Fall 2022 New Students during Welcome Weekend August 20-21, 2022!

Meetings and other events are scheduled throughout the weekend to help first-year students learn about the Grace campus and community and to become familiar with expectations and the campus environment.

In addition, programs are provided during the weekend to help parents learn about the campus community, educational philosophy, and academic commitment of the college and its faculty and administration. First-year students are required to attend the events specified for them on the schedule.
A basic schedule is posted below, a more detailed schedule and more information will be posted as it becomes available.
