About Us

Welcome Days embraces the Freshman Class and Transfer Students to Houston Baptist University each year with the purpose of giving them an opportunity to have fun, make friends, and learn more about life at Houston Baptist University. We hope that through Welcome Days, you will begin finding your place in the Husky Family before classes even begin!
Welcome Days is a 4-day extended orientation program that takes place all around campus.

Welcome Days is led by HBU students who are passionate about making the first year at HBU a success for the freshmen and transfers! Every Pack Leader has valuable personal experience, so they can offer advice about classes, fun things to do in Houston, and anything else you need as you begin your journey as a Husky!

What do you do at Welcome Days?
Freshmen and Transfers are split into "packs" of approximately 20 students and a Pack Leader. Your pack will share a special bond as you spend time getting to know one another, attending programs that highlight the opportunities and services available on campus and participate in "pack-it-in" sessions which focus on the transition to HBU, your spiritual walk, and everything in between.

There's a different activity each night, from game shows where you can win cash prizes, a pool party, a pep rally, to HBU sporting events. It's the perfect opportunity to socialize with upperclassmen and other freshmen.

Why should I go to Welcome Days?

This is a great opportunity to meet new and current students!

How much does Welcome Days cost?

Will housing be provided?
