New students set to learn Triton traditions through weekend festivities
The welcome signs are back up at the University of Missouri–St. Louis, which can only mean one thing: Students will be on campus soon.
To help greet the incoming class, the Office of New Student Programs has prepared a schedule full of exciting events Friday-Sunday. The extended orientation program known as Triton Take-Off Weekend will help new students develop connections with their classmates, navigate their transitions to UMSL and introduce them to campus traditions.
The weekend begins Friday with new student Move-In Day. Once they are settled in, Tritons then head to the Kick-Off Welcome from 7-9:30 p.m. at the Millennium Student Center. The event includes giveaways, a keynote address and breakout sessions focused on success strategies.
Saturday’s events range from Donuts with the Deans to Serendipity Sendoff, a ceremonial welcome for all incoming students. The Welcome Picnic from 6-8 p.m. on the Recreation and Wellness Center lawn is also a favorite campus tradition. Music, food and inflatables will all be available for students to enjoy.
Sunday is packed with a selection of faith-based events, a tour of St. Louis using the MetroLink and residential community meetings.
For additional student support, units across campus will have extended office hours Aug. 10-23. A list of the revised schedules can be found here.
