LSA Bicentennial Class Project
Welcome to the LSA Bicentennial Class Project! We began this project in 2015 with the intention to follow 20-25 members of the Class of 2017 as they moved from their sophomore to senior year on campus. This did not always go as planned but we’ve embraced the serendipity and opportunities. Featured here – and in the “Hail to the Bicentennial Class” video – are the words, images, memories and reflections of some of the extraordinary students it has been our pleasure to get to know over the past few years, along with some videos and photos that capture other members of the Class of 2017 from their first year on campus.

These are just a few of the programs that supported the Class of 2017 from their first year on campus. We knew you then. We see you now. Congratulations!
The Michigan Community Scholars Program (MCSP) is one of six Michigan Learning Communities administered by LSA. Student leaders learned the ropes (literally) and welcomed over a 100 new members of the community in 2013.
It all began for LSA Honors students at their distinctive Fall Kick-Off events, including a campus-wide Scavenger Hunt -- won that year by Team Shark (social reference: Katy Perry's "Left Shark" debacle), and discussions of the selected Summer Reads text. In 2013 that book was Whistling Vivaldi: How Stereotypes Affect Us and What We Can Do, by Claude Steele. #ThatsSoHonors
At the Residential College the Class of 2017 was the first to class to live in the renovated East Quad, to which the community returned that year. They spent the Fall of 2013 reading Pablo Neurda (quoted on the front cover of that year's RC News) and exploring the meaning(s) of home.
Comprehensive Studies Program’s 2013 Summer Bridge Video
Over 200 members of the Cass of 2017 began in the Summer Bridge program. They arrived on campus in the summer of 2013. This video documents some of their experiences including wading through the fountain outside of the Michigan League during orientation, which, as we all know, makes you an official Wolverine. Their motto: “Those who stay will be champions.”
2014 Video Interviewer
Philosophy Major, Mathematics Minor
Reid did all of the original interviews with the initial group of students we met as Sophomores. He hails from Muskegon, MI and is an alumna of Muskegon Community College! Reid's passion lies in student leadership. While a student at Michigan, he created CATS, the Committee Advocating for Transfer Students and served as the Vice-President of LSA Student Government. His advocacy on behalf of transfer students has helped inform policy decisions and the expansion of resources for transfers now and in the future. Reid speaks with great pride about being a member of the LSA community and looks forward to the impact it will have on his future.
