Happy Holidays, from Beyond The Diag

It's the most wonderful time of the year, where Thanksgiving and Winter Break are around the corner! Although it has been a very different semester than we expected, you should feel great for making it this far. If you’re planning to head home for the holidays, we wish you a safe and fun break. Enjoy good food and time with family, and most importantly, have fun over the break!

We’ve included a few suggestions for things to do:

8 Dimensions of Well-Being

Being a student can be stressful, especially this year. Your well-being is important, and deserves attention! Most people know that physical and mental well-being are vital, but don’t realize there are eight key components of well-being. U-M is working to build a culture that takes a holistic approach to wellbeing.

 The eight dimensions of well-being and resources for taking care of yourself:

  • Physical

    • The role that you take in maintaining your body for strength, vitality and energy.

Off-Campus Housing Fair - update

The Fall 2020 Housing Fair will now take place on Tuesday, December 8. It will be a virtual event, offering an opportunity to view properties online, have live conversations with providers, and hear about the offers and promotions available. It will also be a great opportunity to ask any questions, and check information regarding leases, terms and conditions, and other key information.

Sub-Leasing in Ann Arbor

If the past nine months have taught us anything, it’s that we can’t always predict the future, and plans can change in all kinds of ways. We realize that if you’re a student living off-campus, this can often impact your housing plans and needs.

Home safety and security over the holidays

As the Fall semester of 2020 comes to an end, many students will be leaving Ann Arbor to go home for the holidays. While most people are focused on finals, staying safe during COVID, and getting ready to leave town, it’s also important to make sure you leave your home safe and secure.


Happy Holidays, Wolverines!

Fall semester is almost over and the holiday season is quickly approaching. Only a couple more days remain until Thanksgiving Break! This is a great time to reflect on all there is to be thankful for in life, which has never been more paramount. Students here at the University of Michigan come from so many different places in this state and the country, but also around the world so the commute home may certainly be daunting for some. If you are planning to travel by plane, AirBus is here to help!

Departure Testing

Hello, fellow Wolverines!

Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and our fall semester is almost at its end. As you are making plans to return home, please make sure that a pre-departure COVID test is on your list. The University announced that all students can receive a free COVID-19 test, in preparation for the departure from campus.

Please note that all undergraduate students living in on-campus housing are required to be tested before departure, and all other students are strongly encouraged to do so.

Winter 2021 semester

The Winter 2021 Semester at the University of Michigan is going to look a little different than the Fall Semester.

Health and Wellbeing during COVID-19

It has been several months since COVID-19 landed on our doorsteps and we are still gauging how to navigate this new reality. We recognize that life as a student during a pandemic looks very different, and it’s important to be mindful about the impacts on our health. Zoom fatigue is something many of us have experienced, and the challenges of social distancing and isolation can affect our physical, mental and emotional health. Here are some useful reminders and suggestions for how to maintain good health and wellbeing during this time.

Keep in mind the Wolverine Culture of Care

Take Time Before You Sign

The fall comes with a lot of great traditions - college football, the sound of crunching leaves, the sight of pumpkins on porches, and the unique taste of a Pumpkin Spice Latte…
