New Student Orientation
Welcome. We are glad you are here.
There is a lot to learn about being an LMU Lion, and you will have our support along the way. LMU has prepared a collection of resources for new students and their families to help ensure a more seamless transition. Visit this page to access important orientation resources, including informational videos and virtual events to help cultivate meaningful connections.
Students should log in to Future Lions with their LMU credentials to make a reservation for virtual orientation events. Students may make a reservation on behalf of parents and family members as part of the reservation process. All virtual events are optional, but are highly recommended. To get into the spirit, download LMU backgrounds for our virtual time together.
