Campus Day

Welcome!

Campus Day offers admitted students the unique opportunity to tour campus, learn more about what it means to be a Wolverine, and have their questions answered by students, faculty, and staff before deciding to Go Blue!

The day-long experience is offered on numerous dates throughout the winter and spring to best accommodate the schedules of students and their parents/guardians.

The event includes a presentation on what makes U-M unique, an overview of housing and student life on campus, a tour of campus and a residence hall, lunch in a dining hall, sessions from your particular school or college, and optional presentations on financial aid and Michigan Learning Communities.

For more on the day’s agenda, including logistics, see the additional information below. We’ll see you at Campus Day!

Have you ever wanted the chance to ask current U-M college students what their experience is like? Questions such as what’s the first year like at Michigan? What is there to do outside the classroom? These questions and many others will be answered by a panel of students as they share what it's really like to be a Wolverine.

The best way to get a feel for the University of Michigan is to experience it firsthand on a student-led tour of Central Campus.
