After a grudgingly long drive, a pass over the Mackinac Bridge and an hour north lies the small town of Whitefish Point, Mich. With a population barely pushing 600, it only gains notoriety through its annual summer blueberry festival and the infamous Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum.

During my study abroad at Burren College of Art in Ballyvaughan Ireland, I met Michael Monk. He has lived in Ballyvaughan, Ireland for 45 years. He previously owned Monks Restaurant and Bar, a popular spot in the small town. Now, he is retired and farms just as a hobby. For 15 years, every Saturday, he is at the local farmer’s market to sell his vegetables and chicken eggs, to both returning customers and tourists stopping in. Everything on this green gingham table he has grown himself, free of fertilizers and pesticides.

Even under normal circumstances, there’s so little overlap between the countless communities and organizations that exist at the University of Michigan. With over 1,600 student organizations on campus, every student moves and exists on campus in their own sphere, immersed in separate bubbles. Most students will come and go without experiencing a mere fraction of the diverse groups here. One of those communities is the Michigan Climbing Club.
