New Student Orientation is mandatory for all incoming freshmen at the University of
Memphis! Session dates for students entering Fall 2015 will be set in mid-Spring 2015, and incoming students will receive information via
their University of Memphis email account and USPS.
Students who attend earlier sessions generally have better options for class selections!
Below is an abbreviated outline of the schedule for your two-day session. You will
receive a more detailed schedule when you arrive at Orientation. Orientation is a

The orientation schedule requires extensive walking so please wear comfortable shoes
