Harambee Weekend includes an optional overnight stay in one of our own Residence Halls. Harambee Weekend concludes with attending Explore SDSU Open House.

All activities take place on the SDSU campus.  

Residential Experience Option – Students are offered an option to stay on campus Friday night. This optional component of Harambee weekend will give you the opportunity to be paired up with a Harambee Alumni (current SDSU student) and experience what it is like to live in the residence halls.  Spots are very limited and will be filled on a first come-first serve basis.
