We’re bringing the entire family together to show our recently admitted students just how fired up we are about having you at CMU. Faculty, staff, alumni and current students are ready to greet our newly admitted students and their families.

If you are an incoming freshman or transfer student admitted for the upcoming fall semester, you will learn how to make a smooth transition, and even get a head start on checking some of those next steps off your list. And, if you are still unsure where you will go to school, Fire Up Saturday will provide the information you need as you determine if CMU is the right fit.

Plus, you'll get to see the CMU Women's Basketball team take on Toledo during the final home game of the season before the MAC championship tournament! Enjoy a day of fun with your friends and family at McGuirk Arena and see Chippewa pride in action.

Advanced registration is required and attendance is limited. Each student is encouraged to bring up to two family members as guests.

Please note: These events are reserved for students who are admitted for the Fall 2019 semester.
