2022 Things to Do


MITESOL has long been proud to be known for networking at our conference. For the 2022 Conference, we have prepared a schedule that will continue to provide numerous opportunities to meet new people, catch up with old colleagues, and make a professional connection or two! However, with the shift to a one-day conference, we are not able to hold our annual reception.

For those who will be in the area a day early or who choose to stay for that Saturday night, you may be looking for a place to unwind with other attendees. After all, the area hosts a wide variety of excellent dining options, and more! Feel free check out some of the options listed below!

Washtenaw Community College is located in Washtenaw County, on the eastern outskirts of Ann Arbor, in between Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti. Because of the nature of the campus being somewhat removed from the city, we do not recommend walking to your off-campus destinations. Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti are home to several taxi services plus Uber and Lyft.

Note: There is a University of Michigan home game on Saturday, November 12th, at 1:00 pm. For this reason, many businesses may experience higher than average traffic. 


Note: Lunch is the only meal provided at the MITESOL 2022 Conference.
