  • Enroll in the two-semester HSSP core course, Perspectives on Health and Health Care I and II (ALA 106 and 109)
  • Actively participate in HSSP programs and activities, such as the Health & Wellness Conference
  • Participate in weekly programming committee meetings

Summer Orientation

During Summer Orientation, incoming HSSP students complete their respective academic units' orientation programs (e.g., LSA, Nursing, Kinesiology, Engineering, and Music). On the second evening of Summer Orientation, new students meet a current HSSP student at the Michigan Learning Community session in order to learn about program opportunities and responsibilities.

HSSP students register for ALA 105 (Perspectives on Health and Health Care) in the fall (Thursday, 4-6 pm). Students will also register for one of six ALA 105 discussion sections.
