A new universal-access playground was unveiled at Ann Arbor’s Gallup Park this weekend. Named the Rotary Centennial Playground, the space is open and accessible to all people, regardless of age or ability.
Racist graffiti was discovered on a mural Saturday night in downtown Ann Arbor.
The Ann Arbor mural, which is displayed in an alleyway of the 600 block of East Liberty Street, was emblazoned with the words, "Free Dylann Roof, I Hate N------." The graffiti was found less than 12 hours before LSA sophomore Trayvon Stearns realized his dorm room door had been branded with a racial slur yesterday.
This summer, South University Avenue was characterized as a frenzy of construction. Several different projects, including the building of new sidewalks and new apartment buildings, have still been in the works since classes let out last April.
LSA sophomore Josie Junkin, a University Towers resident, was especially bothered by the construction while moving in this August.
When LSA sophomore Leah Weinstein entered college last year, like many, she didn’t know exactly what she wanted to do after graduation. She knew she wanted to work abroad in some capacity, but it wasn’t until later in the year that the Peace Corps became a real option in her mind.
