Admitted Student Visit Day: March 31, 2023
Do you want to learn more about what it's like to be part of the University of Michigan School for Environment and Sustainability (SEAS)? Want to meet SEAS faculty, staff, and potential classmates? Then join us for our Admitted Student Visit Day on March 31!
You'll connect with members of our community who know SEAS the best and can give you the lowdown on what it really means to be a SEAS student. It's an opportunity to get a feel for the SEAS culture and community—and for SEAS to learn more about you and your aspirations.
While you prepare for your visit day experience, please check out the Admitted Student Day Hub.
Congratulations! You're one step closer to becoming a Wolverine, and we can’t wait to meet you.
