During this four day one-of-a-kind experience, get introduced to life at SMC. Enjoy activities, service opportunities and learn about college life, all with your O Group!

Your O Group team is led by a Pioneer Peer, a sophomore trained to provide help to new students. You’ll be with your O Group and Pioneer Peer throughout your first semester as you go through your SMC 101 Freshman Year Experience class.

If you’re shy and feeling a little nervous about college life (you’re not alone!) or can’t wait to get started, Pioneer Power Up will help you meet other students, make friends and find your way around campus – and you’ll have fun while you do it!

What you’ll experience:

  • Trivia Game Shows where CASH is the grand prize!
  • Block party!
  • Bowling party!
  • Music!
  • Ice cream party!
  • SMC Honor Code Signing Ceremony
  • O Groups!
  • And much more!
