From Dining to Dream Job

What started out as an opportunity to earn money with a short commute for one student, turned out to be a chance to build "soft skills" that employers highly value.

Maize & Blue & GREEN Move-Out

Students moving out of University Housing this month have many options to recycle, re-use, and donate items to minimize waste and keep the planet green.

Our Time with Your Student

The end of the academic year is an exciting time on Michigan’s campus. Your student may be experiencing anxiety or joy, uncertainty or celebration. Or a bit of all of that! For some on campus, April has brought conflict and even controversy. We in Student Life are right there with them.

Conflict Happens

Conflict is a normal part of the human experience.  And college is a common time in which students learn to navigate conflicts in ways that may be new to them.

Students Change It Up

Have you ever been concerned about a situation and wanted to help... but didn't? You're not alone! That's called being a bystander: someone who's watching, but not involved. Change it Up! is giving students the tools & confidence to make a difference in all sorts of situations.

Our Time with Your Student

In my service as Vice President for Student Life, I often have the opportunity to witness true excellence; it comes in many forms in our students' lives. Unfortunately, it also happens sometimes that our students fail to live up to and reflect that standard.
