    The grounds of the University president’s house over many decades reflect changes in the nature of campus life at Michigan.

  5. Just humor me

    Campus unrest often erupts at times of social unrest. But what about campus humor? Some say it’s at its best when times are not.

    In 1970, a female secretary inspired one of the great sea changes in the University’s history: that Michigan should treat women the same as men.
