In the spring of 2024, ACHS launched a new and exciting tradition for students – Welcome Week! For those uninitiated, this week-long series of virtual events ushers in each 15-week semester, serving as an informative and engaging touchpoint for both new and returning students alike. As we gear up for the upcoming summer semester, let's delve into what makes ACHS Welcome Week a burgeoning cornerstone of our academic community.

Looking Forward to the Next Welcome Week

The 2024 Fall term starts on Tuesday, September 3rd. Fall Welcome Week will take place during that initial week from September 3rd-6th. We’ll host one hour-long virtual event every day of the week. Some of the welcome events include helpful technical orientations, ensuring students have access to all necessary educational platforms and an understanding of how to request assistance as needed. This includes introductions to student benefits such as TimelyCare, a 24/7, no-cost, virtual care support for all our active enrolled students. Other welcome week events focus on making introductions and connections within the ACHS community. Students will have a chance to meet their program deans and socialize with fellow classmates.


The Importance of Welcome Week

At its core, Welcome Week aims to shepherd our new students through the corridors of college life, smoothing their transition into our vibrant community. But it's not just about acclimation; it's about empowerment. Introducing a myriad of support services, from academic advising to wellness resources, ensures they’ll have the tools needed to thrive and start their semester on the right foot.

But Welcome Week isn't just for the new students; it's beneficial for returning students, too. It's a chance to reignite their passion for learning, re-engage with their studies, and re-familiarize themselves with the reservoir of resources at their disposal. Additionally, Welcome Week is a testament to our commitment to fostering a tight-knit community where every voice is heard, every concern is addressed, and every dream is nurtured. Director of Academic Services, Prisca Bermudez, notes that "Welcome Week is the starting point for your college journey. It's about making connections, feeling at home, and getting ready for an awesome experience."
