Welcome Week

New international students laugh with Jon Lund.

Dear New Norse,

On behalf of Luther College, welcome to the community! As you begin a new chapter of your journey, we encourage you to learn and appreciate difference with your classmates, staff and faculty. We challenge you to engage in resources that will support you while navigating your personal rights and community responsibility.

Welcome Week is designed to help first-year and transfer students make a successful transition into the Luther community. During this orientation experience, you will:

  • Learn more about Luther and the college’s academic and community expectations
  • Interact in meaningful ways with other new students, faculty, and staff
  • Gain tools and knowledge to help students be successful
  • Build a community that will support, respect and protect one another

To gain a view of Welcome Week, please see the schedule posted on this site. Beginning August 1, students will have their own interactive schedules that can be viewed on KATIE. Questions related to the Welcome Week program can be sent to [email protected] or call the Office of Student Engagement at 563-387-1020.

Welcome home,

The Welcome Week Team
