Events

Welcome to Michigan 2015 "Welcome Home"

The Welcome to Michigan Program consists of events that offer something for everyone!   Below is a list of large scale "anchor" events that all students are encouraged to attend to become more familiar with campus and meet fellow classmates.  In addition to these programs, departments and units from across the University will be hosting events and opportunties throughout Labor Day weekend and into the beginning of the Fall term.  
 
More information on events and activities can be found in the Welcome to Michigan App.  Students who downloaded and used the Michigan Orientation app will receive an automatic update with Welcome to Michigan information in mid-August.  The app can be found in both the App Store and Google Play.
