Meet the Bloggers: Jeff Lowe

Hello blog readers! I’m Jeff Lowe, one of the newest student bloggers. I’m eager to provide some new and exciting posts to this already vibrant blog. Before I do so, I would like to introduce myself. I am what my friends refer to as a “Michigan Man,” but not in the sense that I am the epitome of a well-educated Wolverine that bleeds maize and blue and sets an example for future students. I am simply a person that loves the state of Michigan, of which the University of Michigan is certainly a big part. Beyond that, however, I love the people, the culture, the towns, and especially the weather (in a non-facetious way). I have lived in Michigan nearly my whole life; I grew up in Southeast Michigan and attended Michigan Tech for my undergraduate schooling.

Student to Student Discussion for New International Students

Earlier this week, I had the opportunity to participate in an online discussion with current international students and a representative from the U-M International Center to discuss information and resources for new international students. The panel was facilitated by my colleague Paula Wishart (thanks, Paula!). We covered a lot of information in the hour and a half discussion. Summarized below are some of the topics we talked about, along with some links to resources that may be helpful to you. I’d like to say “thank you” to the following students and staff for sharing their experiences and getting my week started off on a very positive note!
