What to Expect

During Summer Welcome, you will be matched with a Summer Welcome leader, your primary host during your one or two days on campus. Your Summer Welcome leader will be a current student who will talk with you about what you can expect at Mizzou and will offer support, guidance and advice from the perspective of a Mizzou student. One of the many activities that awaits you at Summer Welcome is the opportunity to meet with an academic adviser from your intended division and complete your class schedule.
