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.

 “I came from a family where we were raised with the wait until marriage, none of that stuff, don’t even think about it,” LSA senior Emma Cheff began, responding to the question of why she sought out prescribed birth control.

William "Buzz" Alexander, U-M English professor and creator of Prison Creative Arts Project, died Sept. 19 at the age of 80.

When Ari Paul, a University of Michigan alum, met his aunt’s husband William “Buzz” Alexander as a teenager, he recognized how special Alexander was right away.

“Meeting him for the first time, you could tell he was someone of incredible experience and had an endless love of people,” Ari said. 

Janie Paul, Alexander’s wife and a School of Art & Design professor, met her husband in 1992 at the Blue Mountain Center, a community of writers and artists upstate New York. They became inseparable, she said.

I woke up Sunday morning with faint images of a happy dream lingering in my brain. I couldn’t remember exactly what it was about, but I knew it had involved flying motorcycles. And being at peace. 

“Good morning, love,” Finn said. 

“Good morning!” I responded, grinning and stretching out my arms to hug him. 

“You ready for work today?”

“I guess so. Gotta love the Sunday to Thursday schedule,” I said.
