Week of Welcome 2004 (or WOW 2004) took place from Wednesday, August 18th to Tuesday, August 31st. This year brought the introduction of "Rowdy Days", two days of mandatory activities for incoming freshmen that resulted in the semester starting on Wednesday, two days later than normal. Certain Monday and Tuesday events (August 23rd and 24th) were required for Freshmen and Freshmen Transfer students to attend.

This was also the last year the event was called "Week of Welcome". The concepts for Rowdy Days and Week of Welcome were merged to form Roadrunner Days starting in 2005. Roadrunner Camp was retained in future years but was not listed as part of Roadrunner Days.

The movie shown outside on Sunday night was Starsky & Hutch. The movie shown in the UC on Tuesday evening was Van Helsing.
