ORIENTATION

VETERAN OUTDOOR ADVENTURE ORIENTATION  

Fall 2018 Student Veteran Orientation: August 11-12, 2018

Each Fall and Spring semester, Veteran Student Life hosts an orientation exclusively for incoming student veterans, including freshmen, transfer, and graduate student veterans. During this event, we kindly ask for you to bring your DD 214 or proof of military service (e.g., CAC) for verification purposes. 

The program includes guided campus tours led by fellow student veterans, as well presentations from the VA Certifying Official, Financial Aid Officer, academic advisors, the University Career Center, and many more campus representatives covering topics such as VA benefits, scholarships, community service, and adapted services for student veterans. Breakfast and lunch will be provided, and student veterans are allowed to bring guests.

After lunch you will have the option to go on a free overnight camping and kayaking trip. Space is limited so make sure you RSVP by Thursday, August 9th 2018.

We also recommend that you check out our Veteran Orientation Checklist for more information on how you can get a jump start on your transition to UMD.
