"Frosh Camp is the ultimate
experience for ALL
incoming freshmen!"



"Frosh Camp really
gave me a great
opportunity to
meet student
leaders and to know
how to get involved."

"Frosh Camp is a must!
I wouldn't trade
the experience for
the world, and I
would recommend it
to anyone!"

 



"I learned about
student discounts,
places to go around
the U of M, where
traffic is bad, where
to park, and a whole
lot more!"
