Two pieces from the Ann Arbor News on the construction boom on the Michigan campus: first one, second one.
There has been construction around Lorch Hall, home of the economics department, every year since I arrived nine years ago, including the policy school's new building, the law school's new building (and re-model of their old building) and the business school's first (they are about to get another) new building. Most recently, "our" lawn has been filled with temporary office (and classroom?) space for the business school during the next round of construction there.
Oh, and be sure to note the bit about spending 300K to move a tree. It is Ann Arbor after all.
Who was my favorite student this term?
