New Transfers: Make the Most of your First Six Weeks!
There is a lot to explore and learn as you transition to a new campus! In order to help you get off to a strong start and take advantage of all the U has to offer we’ve created a calendar of events and resources just for you.
Some of these events are just for transfer students, some are college or major specific, and some are open to all U of M students. We are sure you will find something that interests you!
