Welcome to the Wolf Pack!
As a new student at Northern, we want you to feel at home. Fall's Welcome Week and the spring Welcome Weekend are designed to help you make a successful transition to college life.
Fall Welcome Week
This week is packed with fun-filled activities and events. During check-in, you and other new students will form your own pack with experienced students who will guide you through the week.
Welcome Week connects you, the student, with the Northern campus community; other students; faculty and staff; and the city of Aberdeen.
During Welcome Week, you can settle into your room in the residence hall, start making new friends, and learn about the programs and services Northern has to offer.
During Welcome Week, you will:
• Participate in activities and social events – kick off your experience at the welcome rally, attend the President’s Picnic, and participate in other fun events with your Wolf Pack
• Meet your faculty – have the opportunity to eat lunch with faculty and your school's Dean
• Prepare for success – get settled in and connected to campus life
