New Go Blue Box!

Go Blue Box is a reusable takeout container program that offers a convenient way to grab food on-the-go from the University Club. More imporantly, it helps Univesity students, staff and faculty be greener Wolverines by reducing the number of containers sent to landfill. The program is in its pilot phase and is currently only offered at the U-Club in the Michigan Union.

Play Day on North Campus

Last week, CAPS hosted another a "do something and play" event on North Campus, to help promote the idea of playing and relaxing to help manage stress and to work toward achieving balance, even in the midst of a really busy academic schedule/lifestyle.  Around 1,000 students really loved the event and were very appreciative.  

The event was sponsored and supported by the four schools/colleges on North Campus, the Center for Campus Involvement, and student leaders from the Art & Design Collective. 


A Snapshot of the Taste of Culture | MESA

MESA/Trotter’s 18th annual Taste of Culture was a great way to start the semester! Held at the Trotter Multicultural Center, the event showcased a variety of cultural restaurants from South-East Michigan.

Approximately 900 members of the University of Michigan and Ann Arbor communities enjoyed free food from local restaurants such as Jamaican Jerk Pit, Los Amigos, and Eastern Flame – just to name a few.
