Get Ready for Triton Take-Off Weekend!

Triton Take-Off is a series of events designed to act as an extention of the new student orientation process, and to welcome all new students the days leading up to their first week of classes. The events will allow new students to meet fellow peers and learn even more about life at UMSL and how to have a successful transition.

Look for a postcard this summer from our WOW Crew Leaders! Be on the lookout for updates and announcements throughout the summer on our Facebook, Twitter & Instagram.
