Learning beyond the classroom

University is a great time to experience other cultures, expand your world view and build a resumé for your future career.

The U of M gives you the chance to see the world while building relevant skills beyond the classroom. You can expect to have fun, have opportunities to meet and work with new people, and perhaps even travel to exotic places. And you'll develop the skills that employers want. Leadership, service learning, study abroad & student exchanges, and volunteering represent four broad areas forlearning beyond the classroom.
