Opening Week

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. Interactive programs will fill your week and 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 student design project during Opening Week!

Opening Week 2024 begins with move-in Sunday, August 11 and concludes with the Project X race on Friday, August 16.

"I know O-Week sounds super overwhelming and it feels like you will have no free time. I promise you, it's a whole lot better than not participating. Seeing the campus and your peers will be more beneficial than hiding away in your room. Participating in activities with a team of similar-minded people might sound scary, but it will lead to beautiful friendships."
