After almost six months of no physical paper, The Michigan Daily will be printing once a week this fall on Wednesdays as long as students are living on campus.
In March, The Daily pivoted with the rest of the world to battle a global pandemic. We halted our print edition after March 13 as students fled campus, but we doubled down on our online presence and saw a growing digital audience. We worked hard to bring the University and Ann Arbor communities the news over the summer, too.
With concerns and precautions growing due to COVID-19, the world has had to adapt. Yesterday, the University of Michigan moved all classes online, cancelled major events, pulled all current study abroad programs, as well as those scheduled for spring and summer, and cancelled sports. While campus remains open, many students are heading home to be with family and take classes remotely.
The Michigan Daily is 129 years old. Through the years, The Daily’s core mission has remained constant: We exist to inform the University of Michigan community on important issues and to hold the University and those in power to account.

“And so, I didn’t really know how to get birth control. I didn’t know how it works — honestly, I didn’t know anything until I had to go through Relationship Remix, which was really sad.”
