Our Time With Your Student

Dear Wolverine Families, 

It’s hard to believe we’re already on the cusp of August—your students are just a few short weeks away from the start of the new semester! In Student Life, we’re busy making campus ready and as safe as possible to welcome them for an engaging and rewarding experience, whether they choose to come in person to Ann Arbor, stay home and take classes 100% virtually, or a mixture of the two.

Dear Wolverine Families, 

As Dr. Kedra Ishop and I wrote to U-M parents and families on Monday, the Michigan experience may look and feel different this year, but it still will be amazing. 
In Student Life, we know that an essential aspect of a residential experience is the co-curriculum where students engage meaningfully outside of the classroom. We are committed to students thriving, connecting, practicing skills, and translating their learning outside of the classroom—whether they’re taking advantage of academic, career, and personal counseling, participating in student organizations with our diverse student population or practicing the skills of civic engagement.
