Friday’s Welcome Program for New Students and Families

The university is looking forward to welcoming 347 of our new students and their families to campus for “FLIGHT SCHOOL” on Friday, June 22. The planning committee has been working hard to create a program that is both informative and fun for our incoming freshmen and transfer students. While we expect most of the guests to park in the Parking Deck, we are aware that parking may be difficult across campus. Please plan accordingly.

We will be hosting a meet and greet with families on the Lee Hall Terrace from 10:30-11:30 a.m. that day. All campus staff is welcome to join us and partake of the refreshments. Please remember to wear your UMW nametag!

Due to extreme registration numbers, heat and possible thunderstorms the Administrators Meet & Greet has been moved to the Anderson Center Lobby from the same 10:30 to 11:30 time.  We have a FRED bus, golf carts and even a van to transport people from main campus (Lee Hall Loop) to the Anderson Center on a continuous loop.

You can find more information about “Flight School” at www.umw.edu/flightschool. The schedule of events can be reached via the link on that page.  If you have any questions, please email Chris Porter at cjporter@umw.edu.

Thank you for all you do every day to make UMW a place where great minds get to work!
