First Mathematics Preview Weekend!

Nine students will visit October 17-19, 2019

The Department of Mathematics has invited nine, eligible undergraduate students to visit us for a preview event. We are eager to welcome these qualified students who will contribute to our department's mission of promoting diversity and inclusion in the fields of Mathematics and Applied & Interdisciplinary Mathematics.  As they preview our graduate programs, we hope to encourage our visitors to apply and hopefully attend the University of Michigan for graduate school.

During Preview Weekend, the students will:

  • meet Preview Weekend guests from other departments
  • discover the variety of graduate programs offered by the Department of Mathematics
  • interact with current graduate students
  • participate in one-on-one meetings with faculty
  • listen to mathematics talks by current graduate students
  • hear about student life from current Math and Statistics graduate students
  • view research posters at a STEM symposium
  • tour U-M's beautiful campus
  • find out what it takes to be admitted to our Rackham Graduate School
  • explore what graduate school is like and how it works
