What is welcome week???? Well, it's a continuation of your Orientation to Coppin State University. There is no way to give you all of the information you need to be successful at CSU in one day, so Welcome Week is designed to follow up on your summer orientation day. There are several events during the week for you to attend, enjoy and learn more about what it means to be a COPPIN EAGLE! We have a lot in store, so see you soon!
