Freshmen will soon be packing for their first semester at MU.  On Wednesday, August 21, these students and their families will be making their way to campus for Move In Day.  Alumni are invited to spend a few hours in the morning or early afternoon helping to direct them to their dorms and help them feel comfortable in their new home away from home.  Click to view a video from last year's Move In Day.

On Friday, August 23, freshmen and alumni are invited to take part in a very special pinning ceremony that officially welcomes them as fellow Marauders and "an alum from day one". Join proud MU graduates and staff for Freshmen Convocation, which ends in a wonderful tradition of singing the alma mater by the lake. The event begins approximately 7:30 p.m. in the Student Memorial Center. Click to view a video from last year's convocation.

GUIDING PRINCIPLES 

As volunteers representing MU in the admissions process, we ask that you also follow our professional guidelines as you converse with prospective or admitted students and their parents. Should you have any questions about this practice, please contact the director.

Because our work with prospective students is so sensitive, it is important to follow a professional ethical code by providing accurate information to prospective students and their family members. In accordance with guidelines outlined in the Statement of Principles of Good Practice by our professional organization, the National Association for College Admissions Counseling (NACAC), MU admissions representatives should:

  • Provide accurate information about admissions requirements, deadlines for applications, and notification dates.
  • Be aware of the general profile of the currently enrolled freshman class.
  • Present pictures and descriptions of campus and community that are current and realistic.
  • Put students in touch with the appropriate office if we are unable to answer specific questions.
  • Avoid using disparaging comparisons with other institutions or aggressively promoting MU.
  • Refrain from on-the-spot judgments about a student's admissibility.
  • Provide information that states clearly the total yearly cost of attending MU.
  • Describe financial aid as a supplement to the financial contributions of students and their families.
