Upcoming Student Events

Events and visits are one of the best ways to learn more about campus, U of M resources, and the process of becoming a Golden Gopher. We can't wait to see you on our historic Big Ten campus soon.

We offer events for specific communities to help each student learn more about the programs they may find useful if they choose to be a Gopher! Events can be attended by anyone wishing to learn more about topics specifically related to the communities we showcase. If you have questions about which events are best for your student, don’t hesitate to contact us.

Note: If you are a parent, family member or a supporter, please register for events under your student’s name and information to ensure future communications are delivered appropriately.
