Parents and Families


Our Time with your Student

For parents, this time of year has an excitement all its own: soon, the academic year will end, and your students might be returning home -- if only for a brief stop before further adventures over the summer. If this is your student's first year at U-M, it can be a particularly keen feeling. Having spent the academic year trying to support them from afar, what will it be like when they're back under your roof?
