Among events and programs scheduled are: a new student welcome center in the Michigan Union (Sept. 2–4); academic welcome programs by LS&A, the School of Natural Resources and Environment and College of Engineering (Sept. 3) and the School of Music (Sept. 8); a campuswide welcome kick-off featuring a pep rally and musical concert at the Track and Tennis Stadium (Sept. 3); U-M football game vs. Washington State (Sept. 4); campuswide volleyball tournament (Sept. 5–8); Campus America Tour, a festival at
