Welcome! Take a look around!

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

Here are 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!

If 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!
