University of Minnesota Driven to Discover
Orientation & First-Year Programs (OFYP)

Greetings Campus Partners,

It's time for Orientation & First-Year Programs to host its Orientation Resource Fairs to familiarize new transfer students and their families with different University services and resources. Past participants know the Resource Fairs are successful for everyone involved. Students and parents are thrilled to have their questions answered and learn about many of the exciting opportunities at the U of M.

In an effort to reach a majority of new transfer students and family members, the Resource Fairs will occur during Orientation Check-In of the transfer Orientation programs. Event dates and times and the Resource Fair guidelines can be in the registration link below. As always, if you choose to participate in the Resource Fairs, your attendance is expected at every session. Promoting a consistent message to all students and families is very important.

We invite you to participate by setting up a visually appealing and engaging display and sending a representative to present information about your organization, department, or service and to answer questions. Orientation & First-Year Programs will have signage for all participating campus partners. We also encourage you to bring informational handouts, brochures, and giveaways for students and families; everyone loves a bag of free goodies!

If you are interested in participating, complete the registration form no later than Friday, December 4.

Start HERE to register and/or learn more.

We hope you will choose to be a part of this successful Orientation experience!
