Workshops and Events for Students
Each Fall and Winter term, the SLC sponsors or co-sponsors a variety of free workshops and events for students. Below are some of our most common workshop offerings.
For a list of current offerings, or to register for an SLC workshop or event, visit the LSA Student Workshop Registration Page.
Here are some of our typical workshops and events:
We know international experience is highly valued by employers and grad schools alike, however some science students still believe scheduling difficulties and program requirements make study and research abroad impossible. This panel is designed to give students information on the numerous research and study abroad opportunities in the sciences, and proves just how easy it is to go abroad.
Sure you can pursue the "ordinary" health careers after you graduate from UM — medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, veterinary medicine, etc. — but why be ordinary? There are many other exciting graduate school opportunities for science students. Find out about the graduate and professional programs from a panel of presenters like the School of Natural Resources, Program in Biomedical Science, Public Health, Forensic Science (MSU), Kinesiology, and the Career Center.
These interactive and informative sessions will help students prepare for their first round of exams by sharing strategies, reviewing key concepts, and analyzing questions from previous exams. Be sure to add these sessions to your arsenal of exam preparation and be ready to learn!
This exciting event provides undeclared science and math students the "student perspective" on math/science concentrations from students who have declared their majors. A wide range of math/science concentrations will be represented at this event, giving undecided students an insider's perspective on different math/science majors and some of the factors influencing the concentrator's decision. Students may take this unique opportunity to ask about course and program requirements, departmental culture, faculty, career, research, study abroad, or other opportunities, etc.
Applying to medical school is a daunting task. Robert Ruiz, Director of Medical School Admissions at the University of Michigan, will give students an insider's perspective regarding what aspects of the application are most important, what fatal mistakes students can make, and how to improve your application regardless of your grades or MCAT scores.
