Get Acquainted Day

The name speaks for itself.  For over 35 years, MASS has provided an intimate opportunity for new students, returners, faculty, staff and the community to come together and celebrate the start of a new academic year.

Get Acquainted Day (GAD) is large enough to provide you with just about everything you will need and small enough to make you feel like you are talking to an old friend. 

​GAD is held annually on Wednesday, during the first week of the fall semester.

Meet us on Warriner Mall for food, fun, and fellowship.  Did we say FUN?  You don't want to miss it!  Call the MASS office to sign up your department or organization for the table fair today!


Dear Participants,

Thank you, for taking part in Get Acquainted Day 2017!

For 39 years, the MASS Office has been hosting this event as a way to help the students at CMU become more acclimated to life on campus and the Mt. Pleasant community.  We know, that having each of you present helped fulfill that goal and enhanced the student experience in a way that was inviting, engaging and most importantly, full of fun!

Next year we will celebrate the 40th anniversary of Get Acquainted Day and we look forward to your continued participation and support.  We hope you have a terrific year!!

Fire Up Chips,

The Office of Multicultural Academic Student Services
