Welcome to Michigan
The Welcome to Michigan Program is a University of Michigan tradition that offers further in-depth examination of the opportunities initially presented to new students during the orientation program. Welcome to Michigan is planned collaboratively by the Office of New Student Programs and the Office of Student Activities and Leadership, and is a campus-wide series of events designed to welcome new students to the University and includes the participation of returning students, faculty and staff.
Events especially for, or recommended for, parents and family members are listed here.
The needs of the new student serve as the basis for the creation, continuation, and evaluation of all sessions offered through the Welcome program. Welcome provides a menu of options for new students from which they may choose. Programs of personal interest, skills and involvement workshops, and social events sponsored by academic units, student service departments, and campus facilities are presented. Participation in the Welcome Program is voluntary, however new students are strongly encouraged to take advantage of everything the campus and community has to offer. This transition period is important for familiarizing students with their new campus, community and peers. The campus outreach and marketing efforts are designed to help students know that we care about their experience and that resources are available to help ensure their success at the University.
