Opening Week is Aug. 17-22, 2014

What happens during Opening Week? A lot!

Opening Week Orientation will acquaint you with the campus community and help ease your transition to your new home. Activities are designed to introduce you to new friends, mentor groups, the campus culture, and opportunities for future involvement. A combination of specialized academic workshops and interactive programs will fill your week. The academic workshops are credit and non-credit courses that build the foundation for a successful career at Missouri S&T.

Opening Week Activities and Programs focus on the learning and social environment of the campus. You won't want to miss participating in the new student design project during Opening Week. Some students may also be participating in varsity sports or marching band practices.

Information and a move-in check list are available in Missouri S&T's 2014 Family Guidebook.
