Download WOW Guide

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, residence life, student activities, and much more. This week begins with check-in on WOW Saturday at the MacArthur Center. After completing the check-in process, you will 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 as you learn about life as a Mustang and participate in orientation. We cannot wait to have you join us on campus for this fun-filled week!
