We would like to remind you that you are registered for the Focusing on the First-Year Conference that will be held on Wednesday, February 16, 2011 in Coffman Memorial Union at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities campus. Check-in will take place outside of the Great Hall beginning at 8:00 a.m. If you have found that you are unable to attend the conference please contact Nicole Grosz (ander635@umn.edu).

New updates are available on the Focusing on the First-Year Conference website for you to view. To make the most out of your conference experience please take a few minutes to review the conference schedule and the different educational sessions offered throughout the day.

There are also three articles available on the conference website that have been provided by keynote speaker and guest Dr. Shane Lopez. It is recommended that you review the articles prior to attending the conference. These articles include:

As preparations for the new Central Corridor Light Rail line are underway in addition to other construction around the Twin Cities campus, we recommend that you visit the Parking and Transportation Services website to view any projects that may delay your arrival to the conference.

We look forward to seeing you at the conference!
