Have you heard of 4-H Exploration Days, often called "Expo Days", but aren't sure what it is? You're in luck! We are offering an info session to Ogemaw County 4-H families, designed to give you a background and overview of the event. We will touch on the general "things-to-know", how to register, what's offered, and give time for questions. More info on the event is below, and can also be found at the 4-H Exploration Days website. This is a completely optional informational session, and attendance at the info session is NOT required for registration!

What’s it all about?

  • Students live in a Michigan State University dorm and eat in the cafeteria—just like MSU students do.
  • Youth attend one or two of more than 200 session choices held on and off campus. Sessions are taught by people who know their stuff, including MSU faculty members, 4-H volunteers and staff members and other experts.

This MSU pre-college program is designed to:

  • 42057624725_b8a372d027_oIncrease responsibility, confidence, independence, accountability, problem-solving, decision-making and time management skills.

  • Increase college exploration and access to the Michigan State University campus and its resources.
  • Develop social and academic skills needed for a successful transition to college and life as an adult.
