We are excited to welcome the newest members of our CMC community to campus. Orientation is designed to introduce you and your family to the College's traditions, academic programs, and unique culture as well as to help you meet new people and learn more about the college experience.
The Orientation website offers information about the first year, transfer, and international student orientation programs and Parent and Family Orientation, a separate yet concurrent program designed specifically for parents and family members.
