FIRST YEAR ORIENTATION

 Welcome to Mulungushi University

WELCOMENEWSTUDENTS

We understand that adapting to university is both thrilling and challenging. Orientation gives you the tools you need to make the adjustment to campus life as easy as possible. Before school/classes begin in the next few days, make new friends and settle into your new home.

This page provides general advice about starting at Mulungushi University.

Importance of Orientation

What is orientation?

Orientation is a series of events and activities aimed at assisting you, as a first-year student, in learning about everything that awaits you at university. You will meet new people, learn about campus services and resources, learn how to navigate the campus, and have some fun. Orientation, on the other hand, is more than a single day or week of events. It is about our dedication to assisting you as a new student.

Why should I attend Orientation?

Orientation is designed to assist students making the transition to MU, and has something to offer to incoming students, whether this is your first university experience directly from high school, you are transferring from another institution, or you are coming to university later in your life.

During Orientation, you will have the opportunity to;

  • meet with representatives from the university
  • find your way around on campus,
  • receive information on your degree and what is involved,
  • learn about the wide variety of campus resources available to you,
  • ask questions and get answers from members of the academic members staff and other MU staff,
  • talk with student organisations and learn how you can get involved on campus, and
  • set up your course registration and get started with your classes.
