Welcome to TMU!

WOW Week

August 20-26, 2016


We are excited to come alongside you as you begin your time as a TMU student.  Week of Welcome (WOW) is intentionally designed to help make your transition to TMU a little easier.  This program provides all incoming students with information about academics, student activities, student services, residence life, international programs, and much more.  This week begins with check-in taking place on WOW Saturday at our WOW Welcome Tents.  You proceed from there through the rest of the check-in process and finally be directed up to the dorms, for those living on campus.  

Throughout WOW, new students will have the opportunity to engage with administrators, faculty, staff, and student leaders (SLS).  SLS will be available throughout the week to answer any questions you may have.

All new students are strongly encouraged to attend WOW.  

If you have any questions, please contact our office at 661.362.2834 or
