Join new incoming Wolverines at Go Blue Orientation & Convocation to celebrate the start of the school year and introduce you to our traditions, experiences and what it means to be a part of an inclusive community! While traditionally held on campus, the current health crisis requires taking a different approach for this important University event. We have now re-imagined it into a fun, highly-informative, and engaging 3-day virtual experience.  

This year's event will held August 26, 27, and 28 in a virtual online format. You will be able to attend live events or watch the recorded sessions at a later time, talk with incoming and current students, find out about our 150+ student organizations, and participate in games and raffles for prizes.
