Students who are new to the University of Memphis are invited to Tiger Training at New Student Convocation on the first day of class, Monday, Aug. 26. The annual event is set for 2:30 p.m. in the Michael D. Rose Theatre. At Tiger Training, the students will get insider tips from administrators, faculty, staff and current students on how to “Walk Like a Tiger, Talk Like a Tiger and Act Like a Tiger.”

Freshman and transfer students will learn about U of M traditions and get advice on how to be successful in college. Alumni and current students will offer their strategies on how students can achieve their ultimate goal – earning a degree.

Speakers include interim President R. Brad Martin, Provost David Rudd and Vice President for Student Affairs Rosie Phillips Bingham, as well as Tiger head football coach Justin Fuente.

Entertainment will be provided by the U of M Pep Band, spirit squad members and Tiger mascot Pouncer. TOM III, the University’s official live Bengal tiger mascot, also will make a special appearance at the event.

As students exit the Rose Theatre, they will pose with hundreds of other new Tigers for a commemorative photo. A Student Involvement Fair for all U of M students will be held from 3:15 to 5:15 p.m. on the UC Alumni Mall. The fair will offer information about University departments and student organizations.
