Is your student looking forward to fall and getting involved in traditional campus activities again? While many programs were adapted for this unusual time, here are some highlights they can use to get the most of the campus experience:

  • Fall welcome activities will be expanded and enhanced to ensure all new students have the opportunity to engage with the campus community and learn about the expectations and traditions of being a U-M student.
  • Second-year students, who missed most of the traditional rites of arrival last fall, will be intentionally included in fall welcome activities, campus traditions and other events that are being designed to make fall 2021 special for all students.
  • Student Life programs connect students with student organizations, leadership opportunities and campus jobs and internships.
  • Your student can sign up for weekly newsletters on the latest events—virtual and in-person—from the Center for Campus Involvement

Inclusive Campus Resources help students find support and community on the U-M campus. Not sure where to get started? Use this decision tree of suggestions of ways to find community and have fun here: Find Community.
