The orientation program will provide students the opportunity to learn about important campus resources while also learning about valuable experiences from peers about what it takes to be successful as an incoming student at the University of Michigan. Through a mixture of activities, presentations, and dialogues students will receive knowledge of valuable skills, explore topics of identity and social justice relating to the Latinx experience, while also providing social support
