Important Services Campus Information Offers

At a glance, one might think that the Campus Information Assistants just sit at a desk all day just waiting for someone to ask a question.

While it’s true that we are always ready to provide any information that you may need, we also provide many other helpful services to students and organizations at the University of Michigan.

Love to eat out at Ann Arbor's amazing restaurants but hate the dent it makes in your bank account? Or maybe you haven’t had a chance to venture off from the normal places you eat?

Senior Letter to My Freshman Self

To my Freshman Self,

In the blink of eye, four years have come and gone, and you are now a graduating senior at the University of Michigan. Four years ago, it felt like you had all the time in the world to figure everything out. Those years have passed, and here you are, ready to face the real world as a grown up. You took every opportunity that college had to offer and conquered them. But along the way, you started to lose yourself in the chaos and stress of it all. Here are some things that I wish you had known and understood from day one.

Senior Reflection


I remember getting an email from the Admissions Office with that subject line back in December of my Senior year (of high school, that is). I remember feeling ecstatic—in a kind of elated trance from the promising future that awaited me. I remember thinking that that future would involve me partaking in some kind of biological research: I could clearly picture myself pipetting some kind of cloudy liquid onto an agar plate.
