Our new SCE students enjoyed a warm and informative welcome from SCE student organization leaders, faculty, staff and our student led Student Mentoring and Recruitment Team (SMART). Dean Kevin Truman welcomed the 100 new undergraduate students by providing recommendations for creating a vibrant campus experience. He encouraged them to be active, rather than passive, learners, and gave suggestions for a successful transition to UMKC. A scavenger hunt activity led students to find out about student organizations, SCE laboratories, departmental offices, computer labs, the student lounge and other locations. SCE Student Affairs staff coordinates this annual SCE event which follows UMKC Convocation. At the conclusion of Convocation, students walk to their respective academic homes to learn more about their School’s student organizationsand being involved within their discipline and School. Our Best Wishes for a Great Academic Year to all our new SCE students!
