As a new JMU Duke, we'd love to have you join us for our Spring Welcome! Starting on January 12, we'll have programs just for new students to learn more about the purple and gold spirit we have here at Madison! 

Spring Semester Prep
3-5pm | JMU Bookstore

Come and get help navigating campus prior to classes starting.  Orientation leaders will be available to help you find your classes and give tours of the Student Success Center and Madison Union. Campus maps will be available and we can help you plan your daily route. After you’ve found your way around campus, head into the JMU Bookstore to enter a raffle and get your textbooks, class supplies, and JMU gear. Bring a t-shirt with another institution’s logo or name and you will receive a 20% off coupon. 

New Student Dinner
5-6:30pm | D-Hall

Dinner is on us at one of JMU’s most recent additions, D-Hall! Join Orientation leaders and meet other new students while enjoying a delicious meal comprised of D-Hall’s Fan Favorite entrees. Test your luck with the Wheel of Deals for coupons and other giveaways. 

New Student Social
6:30-9pm | Madison Union, Taylor Down Under (TDU)

Come hang out at a campus hot spot, Taylor Down Under. Enjoy some s’mores, hot chocolate, and other snacks while showcasing your knowledge with trivia or playing a board game with other new students. At the very least, make sure to pick up your first free t-shirt, the JMU fight song shirt.
