MOvE provides high schoolers with an opportunity to spend a weekend 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 data collected from camper feedback forms, every high schooler who attends learns more about themselves, the college application process, and the benefits of a college education. The program aims 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 in their respective futures.

MOvE Goals:

  1. Learn invaluable information about the path to college: how to get there, why it's important, what opportunities exist on campus.

  2. Gain resources and connections to help stay on track throughout high school and following the program.

  3. Explore potential majors and career paths that are available at UM and beyond.

  4. See the most exciting and innovative areas of UM and Ann Arbor to help imbue the "work hard, play hard" mentality.
