This orientation program runs in addition to the university's required Preview (UF new student orientation). At MFOS orientation, students learn about the program requirements, and they have the opportunity to meet key members of the Advisory Committee. In addition, Student Financial Affairs shares information about budgeting and scholars meet their peer mentor. Included in the four-hour time block are team buillding activities so scholars can interact with one another. We suggest bringing a pen, notebook, and wearing casual clothes.

New scholars only attend once; either Summer B or Fall depending on which semester you begin at UF. The session is purposefully the day before classes begin so scholars should not need to make an extra trip to campus for this orientation.
