Are You Loving Michigan?

Hopefully your second term feels very different from your first term. You've had time to really settle in, get the hang of things, and you know what to expect. You're better prepared to get off to a strong start this term. 

Are you satisfied with your first term? How is this term starting off? Make a plan for your progress and success with your EAC advisor. It's never too early to plan for declaration and for next Fall Term's classes. Beat the rush and make an appointment this month.
Do you know where you're headed? If you meet the requirements, you can declare this term. You must be in Good Academic Standing (2.0 GPA or above); have credit for one math and one science course; have credit for either Engr 100 or Engr 101/151; and have straight C's or above in these core courses. There's no rush, but if you know your major, it's never too early to connect and declare. The department advisors are the program experts. You'll then work with your department advisor until you graduate. 
The Career Fair is not the only way to connect with and learn about prospective employers. Check the Engineering Career Resource Center Calendar for company Information Sessions, Company Days, and Tech Talks. These are all opportunities to network with professionals without the frenzy or pressure of Career Fair. 
The College's celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. continues with the MLK Luncheon Series, hosted by Tau Beta Pi. This panel discussion is held every month through the Winter Term. You'll hear from students, staff, and faculty on campus culture, social entrepreneurship, diversity, and other relevant topics. Listen and learn how to promote a culture of inclusion while furthering your development as a world citizen. Enjoy a great lunch and thought-provoking discussion.
Connect and collaborate - that's how you get through your classes! In addition to instructors' office hours, utilize these effective resources for your core courses: Engineering Learning Center, Math Lab, Science Learning Center, and Physics Help Room. Great resources for your core courses!
Taking care of yourself is critical for academic and personal performance. UHS provides free Wellness Coaching. It's like having a personal trainer for your own well being. Make an appointment with a Wellness Coach. Students rave about the benefits and results. Our Peer Advisors know how to stay healthy and how to de-stress. Learn from their experience and stay well!
Still considering different majors? Be sure to check out the Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering department's Lab Demo Day! NAME is a unique and fascinating field. Michigan NAME grads are in high demand, often fielding multiple job offers. Learn more on February 14th!
Help shape the next class of engineering students - become a Peer Advisor! You'll share your experience with the Class of 2021, gain critical professional skills, and work with a great team. Watch your email this month for the application and more information.
