Moving in and getting acquainted

The beginning of school is an exciting time for the campus and for our new students. Welcome Week begins with a 3-day social and educational intensive program in which all new students can become better acquainted with the MCLA community. We look forward to having all our new students join in our college community through this beginning three-day experience. 

Our program is sure to engage you in the spirit of our campus through community sharing opportunities, academic life components as well co-curricular experiences. Events throughout these days are carefully selected to assist with your transition into our MCLA college community.
