Beyond the Diag - Off Campus Housing

Free Food. Isn’t that what every busy college student desires? With rising tuition costs and inconveniently located grocery stores, food insecurity is on a rampant rise on the U of M campus. Maize and Blue Cupboard is here to help!

Cultural Appropriation

Chances are, you’ve heard a bit about cultural appropriation during your time at the University of Michigan. Do you understand what it is and how you can avoid offensive costumes on Halloween?

We're a CULTURE, not a costume.

Attend Relationship Remix and Change It Up Workshops

All first year students, whether they are living in the residence halls or in off-campus housing are required to participate in two peer-led, interactive, skill-building workshops called Relationship Remix: Workshops on Relationships, Sex, and Choice and Change it Up! Bystander Intervention Workshops. For Relationship Remix, there are some sessions specifically for off-campus students!
