Griz Welcome 2017

2017 Griz Welcome Information

WoW DanceThe Griz Welcome is our way of making new incoming students feel comfortable and at home. During this time, students will participate in our fall orientation which includes information about class registration, residence halls, financial aid, and more. We will also be offering services to students like Move-in Crew that will help freshmen move into their new home away from home. In order to help new students be set for their first semester at U of M, we will be offering special shopping trips for students only. A variety of different activities are put on in order to welcome incoming students to campus as well as to their new community - beautiful Missoula, Montana.

Are you interested in volunteering for the Move-in Crew? Find out more!
