Welcome, Mustangs!

August 19–22, 2017

Get your start as a Mustang at Mustang Welcome 2017!

During this four-day tradition, the Class of 2021 and new transfer students will:

  • Make new friends at fun events
  • Connect with Orientation Leaders (OL)
  • Discover student involvement opportunities
  • Learn about academic programs and helpful campus resources
  • Partake in informative workshops

As a new student to MMU, you are required to attend Mustang Welcome events. But don’t worry!
These four days are packed with tons of fun—everything from a tailgate party and s’mores over our fire pit, to meals with new friends and a pool party!
