First Year Events
August 20, 2017: Class Crawl is a first year event aimed at helping students identify their classroom locations prior to the first day of school. Our wonderful UNM student leaders guide small groups of students around campus. Meet the many UNM staff members ready to help all our new Lobos. The best part? There will be plenty of FREE snacks! Get a close look at Class Crawl by viewing our video. Can it get better? Weather permitting, there will be a free movie screening on Johnson Field!
August 17 & 18, 2017: ExceedU, a two day event designed to help students have everything they need to start their UNM experience on the right paw. To succeed at UNM, students will need to understand that college is more than simply going to class. You need to know:
- the tips and tools help you do well in classes,
- programs and services available to teach you how to budget, get a job, protect your health and wellness, and develop relationships.
Some of the activities are designed to jumpstart your academic experience, and the others are completely centered around just having fun and meeting new people. Visit the ExceedU website for more information.
August 20, 2017: Freshmen Convocation is a symbolic and traditional event marking the beginning of the academic year and most importantly, welcoming incoming students to the institution. The ceremony, usually a combination of the serious and the light-hearted, recognizes student achievement and introduces them to the University’s culture, to its history and traditions, to its administrators, faculty and staff.
