Greetings from Orientation & First-Year Programs!

Because of your work with transfer students, I wanted to update you on our plans for Transfer Welcome Day on September 3.

All new transfer students (NAS and IUT) have been invited to attend Transfer Welcome Day. Expanding on the success of last year's event, students can now choose to participate in either small group sessions offered in the morning, an afternoon Welcome Event, or both. The events will take place in the Science Teaching and Student Services Building and TCF Bank Stadium.

Highlights of the day include:

  • Small group sessions and activities
  • Explore-U involvement and opportunity fair
  • T-Shirt Swap: trade your old college t-shirt for a new U of M one!
  • Tours of TCF Bank Stadium
  • Free food!

Additional information and program registration is available here.

While students received information about this event in the August Transfer e-Newsletter, feel free to promote this event in your own communication with new transfer students.

If you or your colleagues would like to be part of this event, we are in need of volunteers to help welcome new students, pass out t-shirts, and answer questions. Please contact me if you would like to help out and join the fun!
