Welcome to your new family of scholars, friends, and the most amazing faculty you will ever experience. Our goal is to support the CMU mission of academic and professional excellence, ethical leadership, and social responsibility. Freshman Orientation provides an amazing introduction to University life; you will be led by fellow students through a week of helpful, educational, and fun activities. Expect things like a ropes course, scavenger hunt, talent show, professional entertainers, and an introduction to community service; you’ll make a ton of new friends and know a lot more about CMU when it’s over.
