Day 2 Orientation Checklist

The Martin Luther King, Jr. (MLK) Program is an academic advising office within the College of Liberal Arts, and is available to any CLA student who appreciates an environment that embraces and fosters multiculturalism. MLK provides advising services that encompass every major that CLA offers (including preprofessional programs, such as, premedicine, predentistry, etc.) and supplies the information and support you need to succeed at the University and gain the most from your CLA education. Keeping in touch with the MLK community helps you stay on top with what's happening in CLA as well as what you need to graduate!

In addition to advising services, being a part of the MLK Program allows you access to additional services and resources.

Computer Lab and Free Printing

You can use our computer lab to work on assignments, scan, and do various things needed for class. We offer free printing (up to 7 pages per day). If you need to print more than 7, you need to supply your own paper.

Events and Programs

Throughout the semester, we host different advising sessions or workshops in collaboration with other offices/programs. We'll bring you information directly from the source. In the past, the Learning Abroad Center, the School of Nursing, the University of Minnesota Law School, and other campus offices and programs have presented information on their programs.

Low Student-to-Advisor Ratio

Our students have better access to advisors because of our small student rosters. Better access also means better relationships with the advisors. In the MLK Program, our students are not just numbers, but individuals with great stories and experiences that we value.

Drop-in Advising

The advisors, including the peer advisor, are available to answer questions daily. You can see any advisor during walk-in hours for quick questions regarding registration, course addition/cancellation, major/minor information, graduation, the second language requirement, etc. 

Degree Audits (Graduation Planning)

As you get close to graduation, it is always recommended that you meet with your advisor to make sure there are no surprises. The graduation planning appointment reviews all requirements, including liberal education, major/minor, second language, and ensures that all questions regarding requirements are answered.

A Gathering Spot

Looking for a place to kick back and relax, meet friends, and study? We provide a space where you can get a "home-away-from-home" feel. There is often candy at the front desk, study tables to do work and eat lunch, and snacks throughout the semester.

A Warm and Inclusive Community

MLK is a community of students who come from a wide range of backgrounds and interests. Everyone counts. Making connections is important to us, and with our student/advisor ratios we take pride in getting to know our students and building relationships.
