Have Fun in Ann Arbor for Peanuts
Every student needs to play. How about taking advantage of all that Ann Arbor has to offer?
Like Knit Wits (knitting for fun and charity), rock climbing, ice skating, eating yummy organic food, attending concerts (you can even usher and get in for free!), canoeing, seeing the stars, visiting museums, playing sports, dancing, movies, laser tag, bowling, swimming, salsa dancing, cuddling up next to a fire, shooting pool in the Michigan Union, etc.
