Information Session: Yes - Put everyone in a room in the admissions building and watched a video about UMich (pretty cheesy). Basic admissions info that you get on every visit from an admissions officer.
Campus Tour: Yes - The weather was perfect for a tour--60s and sunny. Tour went through several buildings, lecture rooms, the main quad, libraries, the usual. A big campus but not overwhelmingly so.
Classroom Visit: Yes - Observed a chemistry lecture for a minute or so. Not much else to say.

Campus Visit Notes for University of Michigan-Ann Arbor
Went on the info session/tour in the morning and spent the afternoon looking around Ann Arbor. Both of my parents went to U of M so they knew where to go. Zingerman's for lunch...amaazing! Overall I got that "chills" feeling--the one prospective students always describe when they visit the campus that they know is just right for them. The campus was big but not too big, the students were diverse and spirited, Ann Arbor was the perfect college town, and the feeling of gameday (Saturday vs Notre Dame) was unbelievable. GO BLUE!
Dining/Restaurant Recommendations or Comments:
ZINGERMAN'S! There are several restaurants on State Street and on other streets surrounding campus with diverse dining options also.
Other Comments (Transportation, local attractions, parking, etc.):
Go to a football game if you can--you won't want to go to school anywhere else.
