2013 Peer Mentor Staff: Your Orientation Leaders!


Summer Orientation is for students AND parents.  It is different from the Discover Mines session you may have attended in the spring.  Summer Orientation will provide you with much more detailed information on Mines and will assist you in transitioning to college life.  Though Summer Orientation is not mandatory, we STRONGLY recommend that you attend.

During Summer Orientation you will meet with faculty and staff members, talk with current students, learn about the various resources offered by the School, and obtain specific information to prep for your arrival in the fall.  The faculty, staff, and student orientation leaders will be available and make every effort to answer your questions and familiarize you with the campus.  Please note: you will NOT register for your own classes for your first semester at Mines, the Registrar's Office does this for you.  Class registration is based on any AP/IB scores submitted to the School this summer.
