The University of Alabama in Huntsville's Week of Welcome (WOW) is a campus-wide set of programs and activities designed to welcome new and returning students to the UAH campus.

WOW takes place at the start of each semester and is packed with social, educational, and informational programs that will allow you the opportunity to interact with other UAH students, faculty and staff. It is a great way to make new connections, find your way around campus, and receive free spirit items and Charger gear!
