Off-Campus Meal Plan Options

We’ve all made the decision to move out of the residence halls so we can experience off-campus housing, and, in exchange we have a new set of responsibilities and accompanying questions.

Looking For a Job?

Finding an hourly job to earn some spending money  should be a breeze in a vibrant town like Ann Arbor, but where to start? There are flyer postings all over campus, from information boards in the diag to the posting wall in Mason Hall, or even on the blue buses.
