Throughout the academic year, the Office of Student Success coordinates the planning and execution of required New Student Orientation programs for first-year and transfer students. With your help, we hire and train a team of undergraduate student Orientation Mentors to assist in the academic and social transition, sharing information with students and their supporters during this critical point in their relationship with CMU. Mentors are asked every question under the sun, and at the same time, have the opportunity to narrate the incredible breadth and depth of campus programs, resources, and opportunities.
As we prepare for the orientation season and our staff training this spring, we hope you'll assist us by submitting information about your department/program to supplement our existing training materials and to help our mentors develop "elevator pitches" to share with students and their supporters. Additionally, we will create e-flash cards using this information so our mentors can practice and quiz one another on the information.
to submit your department/program’s “Fast Facts.” Submissions due by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, March 19th.
