Trivia for Groceries

On Friday, December 3rd at 7pm, Beyond the Diag will be hosting a Trivia Event in partnership with Maize and Blue Cupboard, the university’s free food pantry.


Do you have an absurd amount of information about the University of Michigan? Or Ann Arbor? Come test your knowledge at Beyond the Diag’s Trivia event with Maize and Blue Cupboard. At our event, play to win a bag of free groceries courtesy of Maize and Blue Cupboard! The event takes place in the Michigan Room (2nd floor) of the Michigan League.

Staying in Ann Arbor for the holidays?

While many students will travel to be with friends and family during the holiday season, we know that some students will be staying in Ann Arbor. This may be because of school work, employment, cost/distance of travel, or because Ann Arbor is their permanent home.

Halloween Event

On Saturday, October 30 at 4:00pm, Beyond The Diag will be hosting a “Taste of Fall” event, outside the Michigan Union. It will include free samples of some favorite fall treats, including chili, pumpkin muffins, and cookies that you can decorate yourself! It’s also a great opportunity to learn about our program, and the support and assistance that we provide to students who live off-campus. The time will be confirmed nearer to the event, as it will depend on the kick-off time for the Michigan-MSU football game. Look out for updates and more information nearer to the event!

Welcome to Michigan events

We recognize that for all of us, the past year has been far from normal. Between masks, testing, vaccines, and other changes, there has been a lot of impact on our lives. We are so excited to be welcoming students back to Ann Arbor for in-person classes, activities and events. There are so many opportunities for you to experience student life in the city, make new friends, and re-connect with familiar faces.

Census 2020 - make it count!

“What’s the point of the Census?”, you may be asking. Well, the Census has many functions, but one of the main functions is to count the total population of all persons currently residing in the U.S. This count is then used to determine how many representatives each state should have in the House of Representatives, and also helps to decide how billions of dollars in federal funding for local communities will be allocated. Beyond that, the Census is also one of the most critical reference tools in understanding the demographic make-up of the country.
