The Office of Multicultural Affairs sponsors the First Omniciye Bridge Program for SDSM&T. This program is geared toward American Indian, first-time incoming freshmen who would like the opportunity to get an early start with their journey here at Mines. Students arrive a week before the semester starts and they have the chance to move in early, meet other freshmen, and attend several sessions geared toward preparing them for a successful first year. RSVP's are necessary through the Office of Multicultural Affairs. Contact the OMA for more details, (605) 394-1828.
