Tell Your Student "Thinking of You..."

The newness is wearing off and students are settling into the routine of classes, studying and making new friends. What better time to send them a message that you’re thinking of them with an M Gift Package.

Our Time with Your Student

When we think about how quickly our children grow and move into adulthood, “time flies” is an understatement, isn’t it? We are already almost a month into the new school year. Does it seem like yesterday your student was moving into their new residence hall, house or apartment?

Celebrate the Season

Student Life at the University of Michigan wishes you and your student a peaceful, happy and restful winter break and start to the new year. We hope that you and your student will spend the next two weeks doing whatever it is that brings you joy.

As we wrap up the semester and look ahead to the next one, I want to express my gratitude to you for being a part of our U-M community. Thank you for entrusting your students' learning to us. Your support makes it possible for us to continue our mission of shaping students into conscientious leaders.

I look forward to welcoming your student again when classes resume on Wednesday, January 9, 2019.


Warmest wishes,
E. Royster Harper
