Orientation • Fall 2017

Orientation: Frequently Asked Questions

Why is it mandatory?

Orientation is mandatory because it is so important. Not only will you have a chance to meet with you're advisor, but you will also meet other new students. It's a great way to learn about the campus, the faculty and staff, and the outstanding programs. You don't want to miss Orientation at UMFK!

What do I bring?

We encourage students to bring notepads, pens, pencils, and casual clothes.

Students moving into residence halls can find a full list of items they should bring (and what should be left home) here.

Where do I stay?

On campus housing will only be available for residential students during fall orientation. Off campus lodging is available for families during orientation at local establishments.
