Welcome To Michigan Program

Welcome to Michigan!  

The Welcome to Michigan program is a cross campus collaboration of events and activities with the goal of helping new students make a successful transition to the university community.  In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s program will be delivered through a Canvas course that all new students will be automatically enrolled in on Monday, August 24.  

This course will serve as the central location for a collection of activities, events, opportunities for students to engage with the campus community in remote or socially distanced ways.  These activities will be focused within eight areas key to the Michigan experience.  

  • Spaces & Places

  • Community Building

  • Arts Engagement

  • Get Involved

  • Michigan Spirit & Tradition

  • Civic Engagement

  • Campus Resources

  • Health & Wellness

New students will be able to explore involvement opportunities, learn about our campus traditions and resources, and engage with one another through interactive activities and events.  

Students that complete an activity in each of these areas by September 7 will be eligible to win exclusive Welcome to Michigan prizes. To access the Welcome 2020 course and learn more, log into your dashboard at umich.instructure.com
