Remind your student that mutual respect does not require agreement; and it is the expectation of the University that differences of perspective will be treated with sensitivity, and that all students and community members will be safe and welcome.
A growing number of Michigan students choose to pursue Spring Break activities that have a deep impact and enrich their learning. Student Life offers a variety of service, leadership, and recreational opportunities during Spring Break.
Last edition we asked: How do you plan to stay in touch with your student now that Fall term is starting up? Phone? Email? Text? Tweet? Facebook? Facetime? Passenger pigeon? What works for you and your family? Many parents and families responded that they intend to use primarily email and phone.
If your student experiences speech disfluency (or stuttering) or if you know of a student who does, please let them know that Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) has recently been given a financial gift to help. The purpose of this fund is to provide increased support and services for this community of students.
We met many parents during Student Move In this fall who are themselves Michigan alumni. And others who were visiting Ann Arbor for the first time, but already decked out in Wolverine gear! Whether your family is new to campus, or a multi-generational Wolverine household, we think you'll enjoy this Alumni Association video. It was made by Michigan students for the whole Michigan family!
