First Year Experience

Welcome to Michigan

The Welcome to Michigan Program consists of over 200 events that offer something for everyone!  "Welcome Home" represents the start of so many new possibilities for you as part of the Michigan Community. There are numerous resources, programs, and other opportunities here for you, and we hope that during Welcome to Michigan you can explore several of them so you can begin to make your time at Michigan really your home away from home!

Resources and Opportunities

As part of your First Year Experience, the Office of Student Conflict Resolution (OSCR), Ginsberg Center, and University Housing have teamed up to share opportunities for you to explore Living In Community in your first year at Michigan. In order to make the most of your year, we invite you to explore these resources and opportunities.


Safety on Campus

It’s not just your parents who want to ensure that your first year at Michigan is a safe one. Our community is at its strongest when everyone feels safe.
