Coming to IntroDUCKtion This Week (6/25-6/26)?

Tomorrow is the first day of session 1 of IntroDUCKtion, and we are so excited to meet members of the class of 2019. On the first day of orientation, students will hear from FIG Assistants and First-Year Programs staff about the many opportunities we offer first-year students. We will also have a table at lunch on the pioneer mother lawn where both students and families can ask our experts questions about FIGs and First-Year Seminars. On the second day of orientation, we will be located in the EMU ballroom (same location as advising appointments) from 9:00am-4:00pm for FIG registration. If you are in a FIG and would like to switch, or if you are currently not in a FIG and would like to add one, this is where you do so. Have your student ID number handy, as this is important for registration. We will have FIG Assistants and staff available during this time to answer questions and help you make FIG selections. After you have made your FIG selection, be sure to get your picture taken and post it on social media with the #foundmyFIG. You may even meet your FA at IntroDUCKtion and get a photo with them!
