Honors Kickoff

F20 Kickoff Updates. We are currently working out plans for welcoming the Class of 2024, whether students are living on campus or studying remotely. We will update this page as soon as possible with information. Thanks for your patience. We're doing everything we can to promote communite and safety!

Notes about F20 move-in. This year, there is no special move-in date for Honors. Social distancing is the name of the game in F20; to accomodate students and one guest during the move-in process, Housing has extended the move-in appointment dates to August 24 - 30. Once you sign your Housing contract, you will receive a sign-up for your move-in time within five days. International students have a different schedule, as they will quarantine on campus two weeks prior to moving into the dorms. If you have any questions regarding your move-in appointment or time slot, please contact Housing: housing.umich.edu.

Usually. Honors Kickoff is normally the last Friday before classes begin for Fall semester. We begin the day in Hill Auditorium with welcoming remarks, speakers who address the theme of Digital Citizenship (and Digital Wolverines), and group discussions. Additional details may be found on the Events area of the website closer to the date.

After lunch under the tent on Ingalls Mall, we turn the program over to the Honors Peer Mentors and Resident Advisors. During the afternoon, a scavenger hunt is planned to introduce you to well-known and not so well-known campus spots, culminating with a gelato truck by Burton Tower, as we tabulate the winners.

Scheduling conflict note: We understand that certain students must attend U-M band rehearsal, while others may have departmental conflicts. You may join us for any portion of the day. You will receive Kickoff information in our newsletter, This Week in Honors, which will include an itinerary so that you can join us following your commitment.
