First Day Logo

Each year, WashU students celebrate the start of the fall semester by posing for a photo with a ‘First Day’ sign.

This year, our traditional First Day signs are available digitally to keep the tradition going! We invite you to take a picture with a sign, either by printing it out or by downloading the file and displaying it on your digital device. Special edition ‘First Day’ Zoom backgrounds are also available for download below and First Day Instagram GIFs can be found by searching for ‘WashU’ while uploading a new Instagram story.

Share your photo on Instagram and tag @wustl_official and @wufyc for the chance to be featured on our stories! Check back throughout the day on September 14th to see your classmates photos and to access other surprises throughout the day!

First Day is Monday, September 14, 2020!
