A guide to getting started, for new Tigers and Tiger families

For New Tigers

Every summer Mizzou greets our newest Tigers with Summer Welcome, two-day sessions of orientation, advising, registration, placement testing and ice-breaking/friend-making undertakings. It's like a mini sampler platter of Mizzou student life.

Tell us how it's going! #mizzou19

For Tiger Families

Summer Welcome isn't just for new students. Parents and other guests are part of the Mizzou family. Get a feel for Mizzou through orientation activities, shared dining hall meals and question-and-answer sessions. Our campus, a designated botanic garden, is a relaxing, friendly place in the summer. Take time to smell the roses.
