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.
