UT Martin Welcome Weekend begins Aug. 18

The University of Tennessee at Martin will begin the fall 2022 semester Aug. 22, and incoming first-year students will begin moving into campus residence halls Aug. 18 for Welcome Weekend. Many groups, including student-athletes, have already returned to campus.

First-Year Initiative, a program for incoming first-year students, begins with Move-In Mania at 6 a.m., Aug. 18, when community groups and student organizations gather to assist students as they move into their residence halls. This annual event marks the first major welcome new students receive as they adjust to their new home.

This class of Skyhawks will participate in a freshman walk across the campus to Hardy Graham Stadium at 4:45 p.m., Aug. 18, for the Take Off Ceremony. This addition to Welcome Weekend will celebrate the start of the new students’ collegiate careers.

New students will have the opportunity to participate in a campus scavenger hunt, attend the Welcome Back Block Party hosted by the Office of Housing, and meet with their student success counselor. For a full list of Welcome Weekend events, visit

Upperclassmen and transfer students returned to campus residences over the past weekend, and classes begin at 8 a.m., Monday, Aug. 22, at the main campus and five UT Martin regional centers in Jackson, Parsons, Ripley, Selmer and Somerville.
