FMU First-Year Experience

FMU First-Year Experience

As the new academic year begins, we are excited to meet our newest Patriots. Please join us during our first-year experience activities starting August 17th.

Saturday will be a long, hot day, but we want to help you get settled in, have fun, and meet new friends. Class of 2023, this night is for you! It does not matter if you live on campus or not, we invite you to join us for our Patriot Light activity and our dance party that will follow.

We hope you’ll get some rest because Sunday will be full of games and more fun! Come out and join our Patriot Game Show and Patriot Pool Party on Sunday afternoon.

On Monday, August 19th, Patriot Mentors will be available to help new students find their classrooms so there are fewer worries on the first day of class (Tuesday). There will also be a scavenger hunt around campus to help students become more familiar with campus and learn some cool facts.

Tuesday, August 20th is the first day of school! Patriot Mentors will be available Tuesday and Wednesday around campus to answer questions and ease first-day jitters.

The first week is packed with activities and opportunities for students to meet, have fun, and get to know the FMU community. There is something for everyone to enjoy. To end the week, we will have our 2nd Annual First Friday Festival. It is sure to be a fun night with DJ Fisher providing us with music and fun.

We look forward to seeing you at the week’s events. You can find a complete schedule of events by clicking the link below.
