Make Welcome Week Your Own!

The transition to the U is a personal one. Completing this Welcome Week Event Selection allows you to provide information so your individual needs and interests can be accommodated. There are two parts to this process:

  1. Complete the Welcome Week Event Selection.
    There are a number of Welcome Week events that you can select for yourself. Once you complete this event selection you will receive your personal Welcome Week schedule by email (to your U of M Internet account). You will also receive a copy when you check-in for Welcome Week at the end of August.*

  2. Take StrengthsFinder® Online.
    Once you complete Event Selection you will receive a code that will allow you to take StrengthsFinder®, an online tool, that provides you with your Top 5 talent themes. You will begin to explore your Top 5 during Welcome Week. Be sure to complete StrengthsFinder® before you get to campus.
