Summer Orientation 2016 

Summer Orientation is for students AND parents.  It is different from the Discover Mines session you may have attended in the spring.  Summer Session 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 peer mentors, and student peer advisors will be available and make every effort to answer your questions and familiarize you with the campus.  Registration is changing for you all as first year students.  Please note we will have a dedicated group addressing any concerns you may have through the registration process.  YOU DO NOT register for classes at these events
