MOvE provided high schoolers with an opportunity to spend a night in Ann Arbor, tour campus, strengthen friendships through bonding activities, and learn valuable information about the college experience and application process from University officials and current U of M students. Based on camper feedback forms, every high schooler who attended learned more about themselves, the college application process, and the benefits of a college education. The program aimed to create a positive perception of the college experience in the minds of MOvE's attendees, and to inspire them to maintain higher education as a priority.
Specifically the goals of the camp were to:
- Learn invaluable information about the path to college: how to get there, why it's important, what opportunities exist on campus.
- Gain resources and connections to help the campers stay on track throughout their high school years following the program .
- Explore potential majors and career paths that are available at UM and beyond.
- See the most exciting and innovative areas of UM and Ann Arbor to help imbue the "work hard, play hard" mentality.
