Student Life


Welcome Week

Welcome Week is PBA's annual tradition to welcome incoming students.

As a new student, Palm Beach Atlantic wants you to feel at home.

That’s why we’ve created: Welcome Week -- a fun-filled schedule of activities and events, offered to first-year and transfer students before the start of the fall semester.

During check-in, you’ll be assigned to your “Fish” group — other first-year students as well as two upperclassmen, known as Fish Leaders.

Together, you'll:

  • Participate in activities — from athletic contests to group activities, designed to help you get to know the people and resources available to you
  • Attend social events — from the President's Ice Cream Social to energy-filled rallies
  • Meet your faculty — Christian men and women who will mentor and guide you
  • Prepare for success — during your first academic year at PBA and beyond

Activities for Parents

Parents are invited to attend Welcome Week and Welcome Weekend. They’ll join in on the fun with their students, attend some activities and events just for parents. Events for parents include the Parent Ice Cream Social with President Fleming and Concert of Prayer. Look for us at the Parents Welcome Area, sponsored by Hyatt Place. Check out maps and directions, or contact our parent coordinatorSpecial hotel rates are available.

Welcome Weekend

Like Welcome Week offered before the fall semester, Welcome Weekend is designed to help new students adjust to PBA. In January during check-in, you’ll meet the Steering Committee, a student leader group that will serve as your guide for an action-filled weekend schedule. By the end of the weekend, you’ll know without a doubt PBA is for you
