Ranger Welcome is the oldest campus tradition at Parkside! Held the first week of classes, the week is packed with events and resources to welcome you to campus. Plus there is free food and Parkside swag!
Please note, this year Ranger Welcome will take place both virtually and on-campus.
For students in the Parkside Promise Program, you will attend our kick off speaker Curtis Zimmerman and New Student Convocation in person at the Cinema in the Student Center. For all other first year students, you will be able to stream both events right here on our website! When the program begins, the live stream will appear on this website.
We highly encourage all incoming students to be present in-person (Parkside Promise Program participants) or virtually (all other first year students) for our kick off speaker Curtis Zimmerman and New Student Convocation!
