Parents and Families

U-M Family at Move-In 2014

Parents and family members of first-year college students often experience their own learning curve as students negotiate life on campus, a new community, and a new set of family, academic, and social expectations.

This edition we want to hear from you: 

  • What was your student's first year at Michigan like for you
  • Was it harder or easier than you thought it would be? 
  • Any favorite lessons learned that you'd like to pass on to other parents of first-year students? 

We’ll share your responses in a future newsletter for the benefit of other Michigan families!

Share your thoughts here.
