    The world may be rife with chaos, but one thing never changes: When football fans enter the Big House, the Michigan Marching Band will deliver a performance unrivaled by any competition.

  2. Meet me at Camp Davis

    Since 1929, students of earth and environmental sciences have convened at U-M’s Camp Davis in Wyoming. A recent reunion inspired some heated (but friendly) debate.

  3. U-M fall enrollment shows more economic diversity under Go Blue Guarantee

    More than 22 percent of new in-state undergraduates are from families with incomes below $65,000. Of those students, more than 88 percent are paying no tuition.

    Thanks to Third Man Records and some dusty tapes discovered in a basement, blues fans now can revisit Ann Arbor’s legendary music festival.

  6. Who loves America?

    Conservatives often suspect U-M of harboring card-carrying communists, but in the late 1930s it was true. In his book, ‘A Good American Family,’ journalist David Maraniss explores the early life of his father, an editor at ‘The Michigan Daily.’

    U-M’s Museum of Natural History is now open in the Biological Sciences Building, blurring the traditional boundaries between researcher and visitor.
