How I Moved to Ann Arbor

This is Part 2 of a series for graduate students who will begin their studies at U-M this fall. See Part 1: Navigating the Ann Arbor Housing Market and Part 3: Furnishing Your Apartment or Room on a Grad Student Budget.

So you’ve accepted your offer to join a graduate program at U-M. Congrats and welcome!

I remember the excitement after accepting my offer to join the Program in Biomedical Sciences at U-M, but I also remember the apprehension about moving across the country started setting in almost immediately. Luckily, I had a few months to figure out my moving plan.

Navigating the Ann Arbor Housing Market

This is Part 1 of a series for graduate students who will begin their studies at U-M this fall. See Part 2: How I Moved to Ann Arbor and Part 3: Furnishing Your Apartment or Room on a Grad Student Budget

The Ann Arbor rental housing market is pretty typical of a college town: there is high demand, not a lot of permanence, and the quality of housing varies wildly. On the positive side, unlike in many big cities, it is very possible to find reasonable housing within walking distance from campus.

Rackham Celebrates Signing Day 2017 – Picture Gallery

Last week, Rackham celebrated Signing Day, when incoming students make their decision to pursue a graduate degree at the University of Michigan. Signing Day is a celebration for incoming graduate students, current Rackham students, and alumni. Guests signed their names on a map of Michigan and took photos for a Rackham photo wall. The event also included free t-shirts and mugs, as well as breakfast and lunch in the Rackham lobby.

During the weeks leading up to Signing Day, new students from all over the world shared their excitement about coming to U-M with the hashtag #IChoseUMich, which automatically featured their posts on our online social media map.
