Pre-Semester Programs: Miami Bound

Miami Bound Pre-Semester Programs - images of students

Miami's pre-semester programs, called Miami Bound programs, present opportunities for new students to engage in learning, leading, and connecting to Miami and other new students before fall semester classes begin.

Through Miami Bound programs, new students can meet other new students with common interests, build community that connects them to Miami, learn about campus services and resources, and get a head start on getting involved. Miami Bound programs are optional and may require an additional cost to participate. Use the links on this page to learn more about each Miami Bound program. Registration for most programs will open on May 1 at 10:00 am ET. 

While Miami Bound is an optional experience, we expect all new students to participate in Welcome Weekend and First 50 Days programs.  Welcome Weekend begins on August 20 (first-year student move-in) and includes a weekend full of programs before classes begin. First 50 Days programming continues through mid-October. The Welcome Weekend and First 50 Days schedule includes hundreds of programs designed to support new student transitions and success both inside and outside the classroom. Learn more about major programs for Welcome Weekend and First 50 Days programs on our website; the full schedule of programs is available in early August.
