We’ve worked with University Housing to arrange special permission for Design Immersion participants to move into residence halls early as part of the program. Later this summer after housing placements are announced, we will follow up with our DI participants to confirm your building location and finalize with University Housing to have you move-in early on the morning of Thursday, September 1.
Design Immersion is open to all incoming first year students who have taken part in summer orientation. Unfortunately, international student orientation happens during Design Immersion which prevents international students from attending DI.
We are continuing to receive applications for Design Immersion and are reviewing them in early July. We will send email communications to all DI applicants by the first week of July notifying them about their status in the program. Thanks for your patience as we process applications!
Design Immersion is a pre-semester program which ends on Friday, September 2. Once the fall semester begins, DI participants will hear occasionally about opportunities for further design-build-test experiences and workshops hosted by the Multidisciplinary Design Program. We certainly hope that you stay in touch with people you meet during the program, but there are no other obligations.
Absolutely! We start Design Immersion on September 1 so that the program ends just in time for the first Welcome Week event, University Convocation at Crisler Center on September 2. University Convocation is the first time that the Class of 2020 gathers together to be welcomed by President Schissel and officially begins Welcome to Michigan activities.
We are currently looking into the feasibility of participating in both programs. More information will be provided during the summer. You must be available for the entirety of DI, so contact MLEAD Academy for more scheduling details.
You can contact us at UM-DI2016@umich.edu. We are able to respond most quickly to email and we may just add your question to our FAQ!
