New Student Orientation is held for Three days prior to Fall Semester classes. It’s three days of activity, information, and fun for new students that will help them to prepare for ‘life at UMM’ when Fall Semester classes begin.
Throughout Orientation, incoming students will...
- meet new people (both new and returning students, staff, and faculty).
- make connections with an Orientation group of new students & an upper-class student leader.
- discover exciting components of academic life at Morris including Study Abroad and the First Year Seminar program.
- take care of details like buying books, touring campus offices and finding their classrooms.
- learn more about campus life—the opportunities, atmosphere, and cultural perspectives that make UMM a unique place to be.
- find their niche in UMM’s student organizations and co-curricular activities.
- acquaint themselves with the campus and the Morris community.
Sunday, August 21, is the first day of Student Orientation. Move-in and check-in for all new students is from 8:30 a.m.–1 p.m. If you will be living on campus, please go to your assigned residence hall building for check-in. There will be a crew of upper class students at each hall to help you unload and move your belongings, please make sure that everything is labeled with your name, hall and room number. Once you have unloaded your belongings into your room, please come to the Student Center where we will have a check in for orientation. Here you will get a copy of your personalized orientation schedule as well as several other pieces of information to help you over the next week.
If you have not yet registered for classes, please contact the Academic Advising Office at (320) 589-6010 to make arrangements.
