Student Spotlight

Celebrate the milestone Seven weeks left!

There is a lot happening. The light at the end of the tunnel is in sight. As we buckle down for the whirlwind ahead, don't forget to lean on the support you have around you and create a vision for the future.

The Shift

At this point many transfers are chanting the mantra "Seven more weeks, Seven more weeks" while planning for what next semester brings. It is a lot to manage all at once. Remember to connect to your resources to develop your plan for the future as you finish this semester strong.

Fall 2015 Registration Has Begun:
Make an appointment with your Adviser ASAP to discuss Spring registration and beyond. Use Graduation Planner to create different options future semesters. Bring your questions about getting involved in groups or research, using your Strengths on campus, or learning abroad to make the most of your appointment.

MyU Student Portal is Going to Change Soon:
On April 20, the MyU Student Portal will be getting a dramatic face lift! All of the U of M's digital technology systems are getting an upgrade and will change things like registration, financial aid, and bill payment. What this video for a preview of the new portal!

Everything You Need to Know About Spring Jam
Spring Jam is a spring tradition at the U, where we celebrate the end of yet another successful school year. This year there is an all day Spring Jam Festival on April 25 complete with food trucks, carnival rides, performances, concerts and more! Make sure you order your student wristband today!

Choosing or Changing Your Major?
Spring registration is underway, so now is the time to start thinking ahead.

Appointments are also available—stop by 511 STSS or call 612-624-3076.

Cramming with Company:
