The dog days of summer are quickly transitioning into the Bulldog days of fall for hundreds of students as Gardner-Webb University prepares to launch the annual “WOW—Week of Welcome” beginning on Saturday, Aug. 18. Over 600 freshmen and new students will begin check-in on Saturday morning as they move into residence halls, attend orientation, and participate in activities and events designed to acclimate them to the University environment. Highlights of the week include the “presidential picnic” on Saturday, the “parents split” on Sunday, freshmen service projects on Monday, the student clubs/organizations fair on Tuesday, and the first day of classes on Wednesday.
