Kick Off Your UCM Experience

Save the Date: August 9-12, 2018

At the University of Central Missouri, we know the first year of college can be intimidating. That’s why we created The UCM Experience, a program to help you make an easy transition into your freshman year. Through the program you’ll learn about UCM traditions, campus culture, ways to create new friendships and about all of the helpful resources on campus.

If you are a freshman that is participating in band or on an athletic team, do not worry you will still be included in this program. Therefore, you will be able to do both!

Residential students participating in the kickoff will move in on Thursday, Aug 9 (9 a.m.- 1p.m.). Commuter students participating will join us later that day at 4 p.m. in the Student Recreation & Wellness Center. By registering for this weekend program, you are expected participate for the whole weekend. Attendance will be taken through the weekend.

Topics included:

  • Responsible and Active Learning
  • Money Management (financial aid and scholarships)
  • TechCheck (technology for students)
  • Academic Support Services
  • Engaged Learning/Community Involvement
  • Career Development (faculty involvement and advising)
  • Healthy Living

Current Immunizations are required for the kickoff event. These are the same immunizations required for enrollment as a UCM student.

Registration for the UCM Experience will open on April 2, 2018 and will be available until July 30, 2018.

By registering for the UCM Experience you are agreeing to participate in ALL activities for the Kickoff Weekend. Activities start on Thursday, August 9 at 4 p.m. and conclude on Sunday, August 12.
