Members of the Class of 2020 joined returning Athenians for Move-In Weekend at Mount Saint Mary's University's two L.A. campuses, Aug. 20-21.

Welcome Week kicks off 2016-2017 school year

Mount Saint Mary's University officially opened its 2016-2017 academic school on Monday, Aug. 22. Classes were not the only thing that began that day, though. The University's Student Affairs department also kicked off its "California Dreamin'" Welcome Week activities at both of the Mount's campuses: Chalon Campus in Brentwood, in the Santa Monica Mountains, and Doheny Campus near downtown Los Angeles. 

Each year, Welcome Week offers resident and commuter students with the chance to get to know many of the opportunities available at the Mount, including academic, wellness and community involvement options. Below are the Welcome Week 2016 activities that were featured at each campus, from Move-In Weekend all the through the University's annual Student Involvement Fairs.
