Welcome to Michigan 2015 "Welcome Home"

Welcome to Michigan!  

The Welcome to Michigan program is a cross campus collaboration of events and activities with the goal of helping new students make a successful transition to the university community.  

In 2021, we are excited to welcome our new first year and transfer students, as well as those that were unable to participate in our typical Welcome to Michigan experience in 2020 due to Covid-19.  Below, you will find a schedule of our "anchor events"; activities geared to welcome students to our campus, expose them to our traditions and values, and introduce them to campus resources and spaces. Welcome to Michigan, however, is more than just these events.  Across campus, offices and departments will be hosting events, activities, and open houses large and small to Welcome our Wolverines to campus.  

To see the entire Welcome to Michigan schedule, please download our mobile app in the App Store or on Google Play.
