Newly accepted students will gather for a brief welcome and overview of the Graduate Program and the services offered at U-M, Rackham, and Kinesiology. Breakout advising sessions and a tour of our buildings will follow. Later, some of our current graduate students will talk about their experiences and some of the cool things to do in Ann Arbor.

Lunch with the faculty will be provided at 12:00pm. Orientation will conclude around 3:00pm.

This is a great opportunity to get to know one another and meet the faculty.
