Peer Orientation Leaders – just one of the Student Success Center’s services!

We offer orientation for:

  • New students
  • Transfer students
  • Dual-enrolled students (including DEEP and Genesee Early College)
  • Mott 2 UMFlint students
  • Veteran students

Orientation is facilitated by extensively trained peer orientation leaders. Yes, that’s right – you can ask questions of people who are going to school here at UM-Flint, just like you! Some are freshmen and some are near graduation, with everything in between.

One orientation leader says:

I wish I had known I could refer friends who needed help to free counseling services on campus.

Another says:

I wish I had known how to balance academics and extracurricular activities.

What do you wish you had asked before you went to college?
