Beacon Beginnings: Post-Orientation Series

As you continue your transition to UMass Boston, we invite you to join us for Beacon Beginnings, a virtual event series where you can meet your classmates, connect with current student leaders, and learn more about the greater UMass Boston community. Over the course of five weeks from July 18th to August 19th, you will have the opportunity to join multiple zoom sessions to play games and learn about life at UMB.

There are three opportunities each week to participate:

  • Tuesday 6:00pm-7:30pm 
  • Wednesday 11:00am-12:30pm
  • Thursday 6:00pm-7:30pm  

Each week focuses on a different topic about navigating life at UMass Boston:

  • Week 1 (July 19, 20, & 21): Student Involvement
  • Week 2 (July 26, 27, & 28): Parking & Transportation 
  • Week 3 (August 2, 3, & 4): Athletics & Recreation 
  • Week 4 (August 9, 10, & 11): On & Off-Campus Living
