Welcome Week

Griffy Welcomes You!

We’re glad you’re #MMCBound!

So, you’re #MMCBound — now what? Welcome Week and Orientation!

The Office of Student Development and Activities hosts Welcome Week and Orientation for students who are new to MMC before the start of classes each semester. This year, Welcome Week will take place on Monday, August 17 - Friday, August 21 and Orientation will take place on Monday, August 24 - Friday, August 28, 2020.

The purpose of Welcome Week and Orientation is to welcome you to MMC; through virtual workshops and excursions off-campus, you will have the opportunity to learn more about our College and New York City and to foster relationships and connections with your peers.

Coming to college is a huge transition, and we hope Welcome Week and Orientation will kick off your collegiate journey with fun and meaningful activities to alleviate potential anxiety and make you feel connected and welcomed here at MMC. Just a few of the activities you’ll be able to sign up for include: virtual face mask design,  virtual Tarot readings, South Street Seaport excursion, Highline and Sunset over the Hudson River excursion, time around the iconic Central Park.  

Download our first-ever MMC app, MMC Engage, to view and register for all Welcome Week and Orientation events!
