What were the first meeting notes like for East Wind, the first space for Asian/Pacific Islander Americans at the University of Michigan back in the ’70s?

What were leaders of color on campus in the late ’90s debating when they occupied the Michigan Union for 38 days straight? 

What were the reactions of Asian-American student organizations during the 2016 election?

“When I was your age, I was very conscious of myself as a Vietnamese American and Asian American, and I knew I was a refugee but I didnt like go around calling myself that because I knew that there weren't a lot of stories about any of these populations that I was a part of.”

Summer has unfortunately come to a close, and at Michigan in Color, it’s a tad bittersweet. Though many of us are excited to come back to The Daily for more shenanigans, we’re also sad to leave the places at which we interned. We’re trading business professional attire for the casual and comfy clothes we usually wear at college. Here, a few MiC editors wanted to share their summer stories of hustling, learning and the importance of diversity in the workplace.

As a student at the University of Michigan, 2008 alum Aisa Villarosa fell in love with the Asian/Pacific Islander American Studies Program — housed in the American Culture Department — because it allowed her to learn about other cultures and her own heritage; she learned lessons she hadn’t been exposed to growing up in the majority-white suburbs of Detroit.  

She said she owes this great experience in A/PIA Studies to faculty members, including longtime Lecturer Emily Lawsin. Lawsin has been teaching at the University since 2000.

Editor's note: both female students’ statements were kept anonymous for privacy concerns.

This LSA senior is a model University of Michigan student.

Raised in a family of educators, she is beyond attentive in class, constantly present during office hours and dedicates respect to her teachers — she is someone who cares deeply about how she earns her grade in a class. She said she is also an anxious student, to the point of being a perfectionist.

I am so bad at expressing myself. Oh my gosh, you guys, I am so bad at expressing myself.

I can pump out boring, essay-like pages in a quick second; they won’t be perfect, but they’ll be readable. They’ll make sense. But putting my feelings and thoughts into coherent words is just an entirely different journey, and the thought of doing that on a regular basis this semester makes my skin crawl with uneasy, jumpy nerves.

But I want to.

Tuesday evening, Central Student Government President Anushka Sarkar, an LSA senior, and CSG Vice President Nadine Jawad, a Public Policy senior, sent a school-wide email condemning neo-Nazi and white supermacist Richard Spencer’s potential visit to the University of Michigan campus.

Fearing an unsafe atmosphere on campus, Sarkar and Jawad asked students to sign a petition, which Sarkar plans to present to the Board of Regents Thursday.

The statement emphasizes the possibility of violence that would accompany Spencer’s visit.

Reggie the Campus Corgi seen in the Diag.

Reggie the Campus Corgi is a beloved sight on campus — a beacon of light and hope during the dark days of incoming winter and finals. But he cannot stay the entire time, for he must go home and rest. But what if Reggie had a place on campus to stay, thus increasing his time for friendly head pats and picturesque photoshoots to be posted on Facebook?
