Welcome Residential College Class of 2018!
RC orientation began on June 9, and continues through the end of July. While you're here, be sure to say hello to Jennifer Myers, Charlie Murphy and Melanie Karner of Academic Services. They're here to help you navigate your journey from orientation to graduation. If you have any questions or problems, ask them first; if they can't help you, they will direct you to the people who can. You may have already met or spoken with Lana Kanitz, our admissions coordinator. She'll be around this summer, too, so feel free to look her up.
Congratulations on your admission to Michigan, and to the Residential College. We're all looking forward to meeting you this summer and to getting to know you better over the course of your college career.
