Community, Culture, and Communication for International Students at U-M!
This fall semester looks a little different for everybody. If you are an international student, you may be in Ann Arbor, elsewhere in the U.S., or in your hometown. Wherever you are in the world, the English Language Institute (ELI) is here to help you build community and get the full Michigan experience!
ELI Student to Student events are fun, interactive virtual offerings planned and led by U-M students to help you meet people and make connections, even if you are not physically on campus. They include activities to relieve stress, increase social connectedness, and help you learn about the U.S. and Michigan culture—while practicing English!
You can choose from four Student to Student events this fall—pick one, two, or all four!
