SMU Freshmen Orientation (FO) is a platform for freshmen to make new friends, get inducted into the SMU community and be introduced to the University’s CIRCLE values. It is organised by SMU Office of Student Life and a team of dedicated students in the organising committee under the umbrella of SMU Students’ Association (SMUSA). To find out more about SMUSA, click here.
Freshmen will attend one of the two runs, where each run is a 3-day programme conducted online:
Run 1: 21 – 23 July 2021 (Wed to Fri)
Run 2: 28 – 30 July 2021 (Wed to Fri)
Run 3: 4 - 6 Aug 2021 (Wed to Fri)
Please contact the organising committee at firstname.lastname@example.org
However, please note that due to limited stocks, you may not be able to receive the FOMO goodie bag.
In this year’s edition, freshmen can look forward to interacting and playing fun and interactive games with their team members, led by 2 facilitators. They can also learn more about SMU by attending live webinars by SMU offices. Lastly, there will also be $30,000 worth of attractive prizes to be won for winning teams and clans!
For more information on the 3-day programme, click here.
FOMO will be conducted via both Zoom (where freshmen will interact with their facilitators and peers) and the FOMO website. Freshmen will need access to a laptop/computer/tablet that has a camera and mic. Prior to the start of FOMO, the facilitators would get in touch with the freshmen to guide them through the steps on how to install and use Zoom.
You are strongly encouraged to turn your camera on during the Zoom sessions with your team. This will allow your team members to better connect with you as conversations are more engaging and efficient when facial expressions are in play. There are also games and activities which require the camera to be turned on as well.
Please contact the organising committee at email@example.com.
All the schools will be conducting their own orientation programmes so do join them in order to get to know more about your school and make more friends! Click here to find out more (under 'Orientating Orientation).
Freshmen will register or enrol for classes via a bidding system called BOSS (Bidding Online System). Information on policies and procedures relating to course registration can be found in OASIS > BOSS > Course Enrolment & Drop > All about BOSS.
