What is FLITE Camp?

FLITE stands for Finding Leadership In the Transfer Experience. FLITE Camp at the University of Memphis is a three-day, two-night extended orientation program that supports incoming transfer students' transition to the university by exposing them to University programs, resources, and traditions while connecting them to fellow students in a diverse environment. The program allows students to experience Tiger spirit and provides them with an opportunity to build connections with fellow classmates.

FLITE Camp is a great way to meet new friends, learn about getting involved at UofM, and get connected to campus before classes even begin! Start your Memphis experience on the right foot with FLITE Camp!
