Freshman 5 

Welcome to UMass Dartmouth. As an incoming university student, you're embarking on a great adventure. This may be both exciting and daunting at the same time.


At Catholic Campus Ministry we are here to help you make that transition from high school to college easier. Our upperclassmen peer leadership team stands ready to assist you in the weeks and months ahead.


To help you get a great start to your academic career, here at UMass Dartmouth, we offer Freshman 5.


Freshman 5 is a five-week mentoring program for UMass Dartmouth Catholic first year, transfer and international students. The groups meet weekly, for one hour, with members of our peer ministry leadership team , for five weeks on a schedule that is determined by the group.


Get the inside scoop on UMass Dartmouth. Get to know upperclassmen and other first year students who share some of the same interests and values. Pick the brains of upperclassmen who have “been there” and “done that” before. Have fun while you share stories and ideas. Make new friends. Gain the support of your Freshman 5 group to successfully navigate those first weeks of Freshman year.


Just let us know if you are interested by completing the INTEREST FORM located to the right. We’ll be back to you with information on the kick-off date and time where you will meet your group.


Welcome. We’re glad you are here! 

Join us for Freshman 5. You’ll be glad you did.
