Welcome to Griffin POP!

Get a Head Start on All Things MMC

Griffin POP, MMC’s online pre-orientation program, offers incoming students support and resources to navigate their transition into college. Over three weeks, it guides new students in building strong relationships with peers who share similar interests, learning about student life from MMC Peer Leaders, accessing resources, and connecting with community members who are invested
in their success.  

How to Use the Program

Griffin POP will run from Sunday, July 16, 2023, to Sunday, August 6, 2023. The program will be housed on Brightspace, MMC’s learning management software. Each module will be asynchronous and can be completed entirely online. That way, you can go through them at your own pace.


RSVP for Zoom Hangouts

Our Zoom Hangouts are designed to connect new Griffins with other incoming students and peers based on shared academic areas, interests, hobbies, communities they identify with, and/or regions they’re from. Hosted by MMC Peer Leaders, the hangouts help incoming students begin to build community and ask questions before coming to campus for Welcome Week. The hangouts will take place on Wednesday, July 19; Wednesday, July 26; and Wednesday, August 2, 2023. Register for each using the links below.
