New Student Orientation

August 25, 2023 All day

Your college experience is already off to a great start because you’ve chosen Montana Western to begin your educational career.  We’ve put together an orientation program to help make the transition as seamless as possible.

Orientation is mandatory for all first-year and transfer students and because it’s fun and informative — you want to attend.  Orientation events include: Convocation (the official start of the school year ceremony), academic exploration activities, a hike to the hillside “M” and much more.

If you are a student athlete and will be coming to campus before the start of orientation, you are still required to attend orientation. Your coach is aware of orientation and expects you to attend so you can be successful in and out of the classroom.

Orientation Outcomes

By participating in the New Student Orientation, UMW students will:

  • Participate in an introduction to Experience One. Experience One engages students and faculty in actively exploring the knowledge, purposes, and practices in every field of study.
  • Acquire skills to help them succeed in their university journey.
  • Develop a sense of belonging, connection, and place.

Check out the Fall 2023 Orientation page for more information about orientation!
