The Hub’s Summer of Connections Tour 2024: Detroit

Are you spending your summer in Detroit this year and wondering how you can create valuable connections with local U-M LSA alums? We’ve got the event for you. The LSA Opportunity Hub is coming to you and we’re bringing our alum friends with us! Join us and other alums who are located in Detroit for an evening of casual, no-fuss, and pressure-free engagement and fun. This event is perfect for practicing those necessary networking skills while creating something worthwhile and long-lasting: forming relationships with supportive Wolverines located right where you are.

LSA students who join will have the unique opportunity to meet local alums from a variety of industries and organizations and start making relationships that can continue to grow virtually through LSA Connect.
