Now that we’re approaching the time of year where we might be spending more time in the Stacks than we’d like to admit, I thought we all could use a refresher course on the unspoken rules of the Stacks. While there may not be one sole enforcer of these rules, I can almost guarantee if [...]
I have seen some great concerts throughout my college career – and oddly enough, none of them have been in Ann Arbor. I have spent unnecessary amounts of money on cab rides or rented buses to go to nearby colleges like Eastern Michigan University or cities like Plymouth and Detroit. And while the great shows [...]
I swear, every time I come back to school after a break at home, I have to swing my sleep schedule back around. Going home gives me the chance to catch up with my parents, siblings, and friends, often at the cost of sleep. After sleeping one hour Monday night and twelve hours Tuesday night, [...]
For the past two seasons, I can say with pride that I’ve attended every Michigan home game, save for the two that occurred over fall break. I dress warmly, arrive on time to the game, and happily participate in all of the cheers, chants, and dances until the bitter end when the band performs their [...]
Now that the election is finally over and everyone can breathe a collective sigh of relief, we have time to focus our energy on something different for a day. Instead of letting our minds be consumed by our schoolwork, our deadlines, our politics, our group meetings, our advising appointments, let’s try to turn off our [...]
It feels like we’ve been talking about this election for so long it’s almost hard to believe the day is finally upon us. Within 24 hours we will (hopefully) know which man will be running our country for the next four years. And then we can all finally stop talking about it. Right? Wrong. But [...]
Hey guys, so winter is coming up. And it’s going to be cold. I’m really sorry to break this news to you but everyone seems to be in denial until one day it's snowing outside and the wind makes you wish facemasks were trendy and girls realize leggings aren’t a legitimate form of pants. What [...]
I have always had a general understanding that depression and anxiety among college students is extremely prevalent and widespread; however, it wasn’t until recently when it started affecting people close to me that I realized just how predominant this problem is, and how imperative it is for those affected to seek help. It was only [...]
In the spirit of the upcoming holiday and in an effort to experience more Main Street restaurants, my friends and I decided to take a break from our work on Sunday night and drink and dine at the Jolly Pumpkin Brewery and Café. We were pleasantly surprised by the restaurant’s warm and inviting atmosphere as [...]
What do you imagine when you think of Ann Arbor? The UGLI? The Starbucks on South U? Rick's on a Friday night? Before this year, when I thought of this city, I thought of the Diag on an unexpectedly warm day when everyone is outside on the lawn pretending to do work. It wasn’t until [...]
With the beginning of every semester comes the ever-going debate about textbooks. Should I buy my books? Online or in store? Is it worth it to rent my books? Can I find it from a friend or at the student book exchange? Doing the full research into all of these options is far too complex to really [...]
This year, like every other, everyone is scrambling to find a job. In the past it’s been fun to see who can get a good internship and what cool things people are doing over the summer, but as I have considered the process a little more it all seems a little too stressful. I am a senior in Engineering [...]
It is possible to have a short, exciting, respectful, pleasurable, and enjoyable sexual experience without being manipulative. But, the thought I had while reading your letter was that you seem to have spent a lot of time talking about what I, as a male, but have spent little time addressing how to improve our actions.
Yesterday, my roommate and I arose earlier than usual to make our weekly trek to the Alumni Center. Each Wednesday, we partake in every college student’s favorite activity: free food scavenging.
It is only the fourth week of school, and I already have at least three friends who are tremendously behind in their classes. And what these three friends all have in common is that they are all in sororities.
