Early on a Saturday, students and faculty boarded a bus outside the University’s School of Public Health. The destination — Detroit. As the bus and its 30 to 40 passengers left Ann Arbor, Sociology Prof. Reynolds Farley began discussing the impact of the city’s history on the current environmental concerns.
Past German college students are now among world-renowned philosophers, researchers, entrepreneurs, writers and leaders.

This summer, noise around homosexuality in the United Methodist Church compelled me to return to 10 o’clock service on a 90-degree morning, to join individuals who believed our church’s mission statement should change, and propelled me to examining the finite meaning of how I stand as a Methodist. This is how I found it; change is my catalyst.

I love the word “creative.” I love the crisp sound of the first syllable and how it seems to mellow down, almost wandering away into ambiguity by the time you finish saying it. It’s a small word, which is good because I’m not particularly fond of long, overly intelligent sounding words. Using them usually indicates an overzealousness to appease.
I’ve seen more than two-dozen head wounds so far, several burns, countless broken bones, sprains and cuts. I’m not afraid of the blood. I’m not even afraid of dislocated joints. But I am afraid of neurosurgery, which is where I’ve been put for the day.
I had the pleasure of attending one of American photographer Mary Ellen Mark’s photography workshops last week in New York City.

“I study water quality, water purification, sustainability of using water … Water is a huge issue. We don’t consider the fact that there could be a drought and you might turn on your tap and water won’t come out of it … You have to have water to do things. And I also just love chemistry and math and you get to do a lot of that (in my field). It’s fun, it’s super nerdy … Hey, got to be nerdy about something!”
