Welcome! Take a look around!

August 3, 2009 —

Today kicks off orientation for most of our new students. We’re all excited to see new faces and make new friends!

Here’s some good sites to learn more about your new city: www.desmoinesmetro.com or www.seedesmoines.com and, of course, the DMU site: www.dmu.edu. Take a virtual tour of some Des Moines area events & more!

SOS logo-finalIf you have a significant other who also moved here but won’t have a whole class to connect with, I’d recommend a visit to the Iowa board on www.thenest.com &/or attend the DMU Significant Others’ Support (SOS) meetings. The first SOS meeting is August 11 at 6 p.m. (5:30 p.m. kicks off the social time) in Ruza Hall in the Academic Center. No RSVP needed and childcare IS provided. Come meet some friends in the same boat!

Want to find a good fit to volunteer in your spare time? Click here. Iowa was rated #5 in the country for volunteer hours!

Is there anything in particular you’re trying to track down? Leave a comment or follow us on Twitter & send us a message!

Proud daughter and patient of DMU alumni, Courtney knows, first-hand, that Des Moines University is doing a world of good. A fan of all outdoor festivals, fruity drinks and nearly all edibles, she has a hard time narrowing down her list of favorite places to go and things to do but lists the Iowa State Fair as an all-time fave. She loves her 8-minute commute to DMU from Urbandale, a suburb of Des Moines. She and husband Tyler are owned by three large dogs, Tonka, Tucker and Tank.

    Great info and thanks a lot. I am researching for my son who is studying in Iowa but too busy to do so himself, apparently!
