Student Life

Bert Askwith holds “Thank you” card signed by U-M students.

Founder of Bert’s Cafe and Study Lounge, Bert Askwith is a 103-year-old U-M alumnus and is prouder than ever to be a Wolverine. Bert feels so strongly that the performing arts are an essential part of the U-M experience that he is providing every U-M first- or second-year undergraduate student with a  free ticket to a UMS performance this season. - Find out more here.
