Welcome! 2023

The Office of New Student and Family Programs will be conducting Welcome events the week prior to classes beginning to help new students and their families get acclimated to campus. There will be virtual workshops, Advising Center Open Houses, Find Your Class Tours, and free food vouchers to the first 200 students. 

Freshmen students can meet the MentorU staff and connect with a mentor. Transfer students can drop by the Transfer Success Center to grab a snack and your free TSC t-shirt.
