We’re currently putting together a week-long schedule full of fantastic sessions that are sure to give you a good idea of what being a UM student is like.  From August 29-September 2, Prep Week will help you discover the people, places, and information you need to know, and introduce you to ways you can connect to your new UM community.

Prep Week 2022 Features:

  • Homerooms – Start each morning in a homeroom, with students in similar course.  Get a jump start on connecting with future classmates and meet experienced students who are excited to help you make the most of Prep Week.  
  • Workshops – Develop skills and habits to help you be successful in your studies. Things like time management, academic writing, maintaining wellness, and asking for help might be new to you. We’ll give you practical and useable strategies to help you be your best self.

    You can get formal recognition for all of your learning and start adding to your Co-Curricular Record (CCR) before you even start your classes! The CCR is an official document that summarizes each student's participation in university-approved activities that aren't for academic credit.

    Three requirements are all that you need to qualify for Orientation co-curricular recognition

    1. Full participation in Prep Week,
    2. Completion of UM Essentials, and
    3. Participation in Welcome Day.
