Campus Life

  1. Music mattered most: How a medical team granted this patient’s wish

    To ease the pain of this musician’s medical journey, his support team at Michigan Medicine connected him to the Gifts of Art program. They fulfilled David Labelle’s wish to play the grand piano in University Hospital before he passed away.

  2. Michigan Medicine launches COVID-19 vaccination clinic at Michigan Stadium

    Michigan Medicine has already vaccinated nearly 7,000 health care workers and, through the opening of the Stadium and other planned locations, aims to deliver all vaccine doses received from the state quickly and safely.

  3. Mysteries at Michigan

    Before COVID-19, the college campus could be described as America’s ‘last idyll.’ Perhaps that is why so many mystery writers over time have set their tales of terror at a fictionalized University of Michigan.

  4. Dispatches from first-time poll workers

    Two UM-Dearborn staff talk about their experience working the polls Nov. 4 and why they think everyone should do it at least once — kind of like a ‘civic internship.’

  5. This is how you feed potential

    Food insecurity is an existential threat to more college students than you may realize. U-M’s food pantry blends research and reality to find a solution.

  6. How to keep COVID-19 from invading your ‘pod’

    Michigan Medicine suggests what to do if someone in your learning group, friend group, or social circle gets exposed to or becomes sick with coronavirus.

  7. More undergrad courses going online as COVID cases rise

    U-M shifts additional classes to fully remote instruction after Washtenaw County issues 14-day stay-in-place order for undergraduate students.

  8. The (virtual) show must go on

    For the first time in its 123-year history, the Michigan Marching Band has gone completely virtual due to COVID-19. Band, take the screen!

  9. U-M shifts to saliva-based surveillance testing for COVID-19

    Changes include streamlined sign-up, more locations, 6K weekly capacity.
