Heritage/Tradition

  1. Game day!

    It’s football Saturday! Come join the crowds at the Mudbowl, on State and Packard, the Pioneer High lot, and outside Michigan Stadium.

  2. Chorus girls

    The presence of chorus girls at a 1921 fraternity party revealed scandalous behavior by students and administrators alike.

  3. A different Diag?

    If a single Regent had switched his vote 150 years ago, U-M would stand in a very different place.

  4. An American Girl

    A tough heroine in 1870s Ann Arbor was the star of a novel about U-M’s early days.

  5. A question of culture

    Michigan’s minority-student lounges grew out of an intense debate about integration.

  6. The great raid

    One night during the Great Depression, police stormed U-M’s fraternities.

  7. Spring afternoon on the Diag

    Sunshine, lush grass and trees in bloom. On a warm May afternoon, when the semester’s done, there’s no place finer.

  8. Teacher, scholar, mensch

    History professor Sidney Fine changed countless lives for the better.

  9. The student body

    Slideshow: At the corner of North University and East University, generations of students met the demands of “physical culture” — and course registration — in Waterman and Barbour Gyms.
