We are excited you are interested in being a part of an outstanding tradition at Missouri Western! Griffon Edge has become one of the most popular classes at the University— we can’t wait for you to join us!
Griffon Edge is a one-credit hour course that takes place before classes officially begin in the fall semester. It was created to give incoming freshmen and transfer students a head start, or an “edge,” on their Missouri Western experience. Your summer orientation experience is designed to prepare you to step foot on campus, but Griffon Edge is designed to help you soar.
At Griffon Edge, you can expect to make meaningful connections with faculty and staff, become familiar with campus and learn how to find all of your classes, and most of all you’ll make connections with fellow Griffons that will last a lifetime.
All incoming first-year students* are automatically signed up for Griffon Edge, CED 131. To ensure you are signed up, check your academic schedule for Griffon Edge, CRN 15818. If you want to take the course and don’t see it on your schedule, follow these steps to add it to your schedule.
