Information sessions are conducted each semester to provide students interested in a Washington semester with an overview of the program and a chance to hear from a panel of students who have completed the program.
The next information session is Thursday, September 18, 2014 at 4PM in the Pendleton Room at the Michigan Union.
Poster Presentations are the Final Phase of the Washington Semester
MIW students have an additional academic responsibility after they return from DC. Each student is required to present their research at a poster session. Faculty, administration, students interested in the program, friends and family along with the general public are welcome to attend. Often, the poster session is the first time that the group is together as a cohort afterreturning from DC semester and students enjoy the chance to reconnect.
Following the poster session (which is usually from 5-6PM on a weekday), there is a final dinner with the Director, where program evaluations are completed and volunteers for recruiting and work study positions sign up.

Graduating seniors may submit a video presentation in lieu of attending the poster session with prior authorization. Students do not receive a grade for the Prep Course until after the poster session. Click here for more photos.
