    Welcome Weekend will run from Thursday, August 20, 2015 to Sunday, August 23, 2015. After move-in day and before classes begin, we intentionally immerse you in the #CapFam. We will provide you with opportunities to engage with faculty, staff, upper-level students, and other incoming students so that you can start creating your home away from home at Capital. You can bet you’ll eat great food, meet awesome people, and maybe even get hypnotized!
