Each summer Mizzou welcomes thousands of incoming freshman to campus for two days full of campus and program orientation, get-to-know you activities and an introduction to the MU campus community. In addition, students and their parents will get an up-close look into their college and degree area.
In HES, this includes a welcome from the Dean, Q&A sessions with the student services staff, hearing first-hand from a current HES student leader, and advising. It is very important for us to make sure that students, and their parents, leave Summer Welcome with a sense of relief and excitement. Students begin exploring their major and discovering all that Mizzou has to offer.
In the words of Chelsea Jones, College of Human Environmental Sciences Ambassador and guest presenter during Summer Welcome, "Summer Welcome in HES is an incredible experience. I get the chance to introduce students into the HES family that I know and love." She says, "The highlight of my summer is being able to share my HES experience with students and parents daily, as well as watching them leave feeling comfortable with their decision to choose HES."
