Warriner Mall

At this time, we are preparing to host our orientation programs virtually throughout the 2021 season. While we would rather host you on our beautiful campus, the health and safety of our students, their supporters, and our university community are a top priority. Our goal is to meet you where you are (literally!) and get you ready to make the important transition to Central Michigan University. We hope you find our Virtual New Student Orientation informative as you envision your new future here at Central.

We want you to have a great experience and are planning engaging orientation programs for our new freshmen and transfer students. Please continue to check back here for additional details and we’ll continue to communicate with you via email this spring leading up to your orientation session.

FIRE UP for orientation!
