The eNewsletter is a regular e-newsletter sent to first-year students throughout the academic year (usually monthly but more often at the beginning of the year). The newsletter content includes items pertinent to the success and wellbeing of first-year students. Content addresses developmental needs and time-sensitive materials relevant to a seamless transition to the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities.
