"As a UofM student, I can attest that my experiences have been truly worthwhile and I have received a quality collegiate education. Guidance from student-focused resources like Career Services, Student Leadership & Involvement and Educational Support Programs has provided countless opportunities for me to showcase my passion for knowledge, leadership and service. I am beyond confident that I am equipped with the necessary tools to succeed in my educational and professional endeavors."

"My two favorite things about the UofM are the access to opportunity and diversity. From getting the chance to intern at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital last summer, to running for senator at-large for the Student Government Association, and multiple scholarships available to help fund one's education, the UofM offers immense opportunities to all students."

"Coming from a small school in Mississippi, I was attracted to the diversity of the UofM and the exposure to new cultures. As a first-gen student, the First Scholars Program really helped me transition to college life. The support from the staff and other first-gen students helped me feel right at home. I was able to connect to and benefit from all of the resources on campus, including Career Services, Financial Aid and the Counseling Center."

"Coming to the UofM was one of the best decisions that I made. The culture, opportunities and people make the UofM special. I have gotten a true college experience and have been given unique opportunities through resources available from Career Services to ensure that I am prepared for life after college!"
