WOW move-in is Aug 24 - Sept. 5th. #sru21 #sruWOW

Week of Welcome


We can't wait to welcome you to Slippery Rock University. You're going to love it here.  The Rock has a special tradition that kicks off each new academic year. It's called WOW, a "Weekend Of Welcome" at which faculty, staff and other students help to get you moved in and settled. After that, there's plenty of time to meet new friends, take care of any last minute business and get ready for your first year at SRU.

It's all about your becoming part of something special ... something that will change your life and provide you with a ROCK SOLID education.

Check out the WOW BROCHURE for a complete schedule of events, activities and other important information!

Pack your bags, grab your Rock swag and get ready to GO GREEN.
