GVSU joins U-M in pilot collaboration on Semester in Detroit program

This fall, six of the 18 students participating in U-M’s Semester in Detroit program are from Grand Valley State University.

The program provides an opportunity for students in any major to have a rich and unique learning experience, earning 13-18 undergraduate credits, while living in Detroit.

 “It’s been really awesome to get new perspectives on life that are not from [University of] Michigan people,” said Sharie Branch, a junior double major in sociocultural anthropology and African American and African Studies at U-M. “It’s been refreshing to meet people who have a completely different college experience,” she said, noting the political and cultural differences in the two schools’ communities that are only 133 miles apart.
