Heritage/Tradition

  1. President Little's Dorms

    Your life was probably changed forever by the dorm you were assigned to. But in U-M’s early years, there were no dorms.

  2. J-Hop

    For almost 80 years, until 1960, J-Hop highlighted the U-M social calendar. The dance gathered the entire student body — and some controversy, like when the 1913 event included the Tango.

  3. The late, great 98

    Tom Harmon may have been the best college football player ever. His single-handed destruction of Ohio State is the stuff of gridiron legend. But his exploits as a pilot during World War Two made him a hero not just in a game, but in life.

  4. A piece of history

    Our first U-M History column tells the story of one of our crown jewels: the Clements Library

  5. JFK at the Union

    On the anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s ‘Peace Corps’ speech, we look back at how U-M students picked up his challenge to change the world.

  6. Pigskin

    The spread offense isn’t the only thing that’s changed in football. So have the words.
