Gold Book is a guidebook to help you and your family in your first year at the University. Gold Book is designed to support your transition and includes sections on Life at the U of M, Learning at the U of M, and Your Next Steps. It will introduce you to some of the University’s departments and services—and the people, places, and things that will be a part of your daily life. 

You will receive a physical copy of the Gold Book when you attend Orientation this summer.

The 2022-23 Gold Book will be available in May.
