Transfer Welcome Day is tomorrow, Saturday, September 1!

Thank you for registering for Transfer Welcome Day! Below are a few steps to help you get ready.

  1. McNamara Alumni CenterMake Sure You Know Where To Go
    Welcome Day will begin in the McNamara Alumni Center across the street from TCF Bank Stadium and Buffalo Wild Wings. If you're driving to campus, please follow the instructions on the Transfer Orientation website. You will need to park in the East River Road Garage and walk to McNamara.
  2. Check-in at 10:30 a.m.
    We want you to have plenty of time to experience all the things we've planned for Welcome Day, so make sure you arrive for check-in promptly at 10:30 a.m.
  3. Bring Your U Card
    Please have your official U of M photo ID card with you at all times. You will need it to attend the Explore U involvement fair at Welcome Day.
  4. Bring a T-shirt From Your Previous College
    We're having a T-shirt swap event during lunch, so you can bring a T-shirt bearing your previous college's logo and exchange it for a brand new U of M T-shirt. Your old shirt will be donated to charity. (If you don't have a T-shirt to exchange, don't worry. We'll still give you a U of M T-shirt!)
  5. Have Your Top 5 Ready
    If you haven't completed the StrengthsFinder® assessment, make sure you do so before Saturday. Your instructions and access code were emailed to you last week. If you can't complete the assessment before Welcome Day, let a staff-person know when you check in at 10:30 a.m. Visit strengths.umn.edu to learn more about the assessment.

Please remember that Transfer Welcome Day is exclusively for new transfer students enrolling fall semester. We are not able to accommodate guests at this event.

I'm excited to see you tomorrow!
