MPower is a four-day extended orientation leadership experience at the University of Mississippi. Students will be placed in small groups of about 10-12 peers led by an upperclassman peer leader. Over the course of the program, we will engage in various team activities, leadership conversations, attend exciting keynote speaker sessions and main-stage entertainment, and introduce you to our UM community. It’s an experience you won’t want to miss!
How do I register?
MPower registration is now closed.
Who can attend MPower?
All incoming first-year students may register to attend MPower. There is no pre-requisite to joining this leadership experience. At MPower we affirm that all students have unique leadership capabilities and we look forward to growing those with you.
Any students participating in Pan-Hellenic Recruitment are encouraged to sign up for the CPH Recruitment track of MPower! This modified one day MPower experience is exclusively offered to those participating in recruitment and is offered at a reduced cost. This is a great opportunity to connect with additional leadership roles and get an early start in campus involvement. This program is supported by our partners in Fraternity and Sorority Life and will not interfere with the formal recruitment schedule.
Program capacity is 500 students, and we admit on a first-come first-served basis. Once we have reached maximum capacity, students will be placed on a waitlist. If space opens from cancellations, we will notify those on the waiting list that their registration is confirmed.
