Your Next Steps in the Orientation Canvas Course

Since last week, many members of the Class of 2024 have completed module 10 of the orientation Canvas course - great job! If you have not yet completed modules 1 - 10, please do so as soon as possible.
This week, focus on modules 11-13, where you'll explore the services available to you on campus, what your life may include on campus, and what to consider when transitioning to college. These three modules will take approximately one hour to complete.
To access the orientation Canvas course:
  • Navigate to MyMiamiLogin using your Miami UniqueID and password.
  • Under Quick Tools, navigate to your Miami University email account. In your inbox, you will have an invitation to join the Class of 2024 Orientation Canvas course. You will need to accept the course invitation to move forward.
  • You can always return to MyMiami to access Canvas and revisit the orientation course; click on the Canvas button on the left side of the screen, under the Quick Tools heading.

Participate in Conversations About Race, Racism, and Anti-Racism with Your New Miami Community

You are invited to participate in dialogue-based discussions about race, racism, and anti-racism with your new Miami community. These 45-minute sessions will include time to process and debrief acts of violence and injustice against Black-identified people, connect to materials to learn more about anti-racism, discuss campus resources and student organizations you may be interested in, and brainstorm action steps for building the best possible Miami community. All new first-year students are welcome to participate in race, racism, and anti-racism discussions.
Conversations will take place over the course of the next three weeks and will be facilitated by staff members in the Division of Student Life and Student Orientation Undergraduate Leaders (SOULs). To participate in a conversation, tell us that you're interested using the Conversations About Race interest form, and you will receive an invitation in your Miami email where you can select the conversation time that works best for you.

Reminder: Complete the Beginning College Survey of Student Engagement (BCSSE)
We want you to get the most out of your time at Miami University, and we want to know what you think about your upcoming experiences here at Miami. By completing the Beginning College Survey of Student Engagement (BCSSE), you're helping us best support you inside and outside the classroom. The survey takes 15 - 20 minutes to complete. Please take the survey now as your responses are incredibly valued. If you have already completed the survey in Module 18 of the orientation Canvas course, you do not need to complete the survey again.

Since You Asked

Since You Asked

Each week, the Hawk Herald will feature a question asked by a member of the Class of 2024. A student leader will share their perspective on your question.
Q: Do you think it's worth it to buy a printer for my residence hall room? Or, will I have frequent enough access to school printers?
A: In my opinion, if you have classes that require lots of printing like writing classes or you are an English major then yes, a printer is worth it since you will be printing frequently. Otherwise, school printers will do the trick if you only need to print occasionally for a small cost using the MU Print Release Stations. You are welcome to bring a printer of your own, with the one caveat being that if the printer has wireless capabilities, you turn off those capabilities. Wireless technologies, specifically printers, can cause problems for the Wi-Fi network.
