As the official Wolverines hoops haven for more than 40 years, Crisler Arena holds more than 13,000 rollicking gold-and-blue brethren for each of the storied program's hard-fought home games. Behind playmaking sophomore guard Darius Morris and freshman phenom Tim Hardaway Jr., the Wolverines are ready to challenge conference opponents with a fury of fast breaks, dunks, dribbles, and dirty dishes. Michigan's Big Ten matchup against the Badgers from Madison also marks Fan Appreciation Night, during which ardent hoops hounds are rewarded for their unconditional basketball jones with special prizes and performances by the Michigan dance team. Cheer on Coach Beilein's crew of collegiate ballers as they polish glass backboards and refinish hardwood floors in a valiant attempt to intimidate their haplessly smaller, red-clad weasel prey.

The University of Michigan was founded in 1817, and moved from Detroit to Ann Arbor in 1837. At the time, Ann Arbor was just 13 years old, but had a booming population of some 2,000 residents. Fast forward to the present, and the University alone has more than 540,000 living alumni along with over 60 regional alumni clubs and 2,000 alumni events each year. They're spread across the globe and can be found in just about every profession, from famous actors and CEOs to astronauts, writers, and Nobel Prize winners. But instead of gathering for an annual barbecue in James Earl Jones's backyard, U-M alumni stay connected through the Alumni Association. This independent, worldwide organization not only fosters lifelong relationships between Wolverines, but also provides career resources, learning opportunities, discounts, and other perks not available to the general public. The association is also responsible for the numerous alumni clubs sprinkled throughout the country, which get together regularly to raise funds for student scholarships and organize career-related events.

The classes Nataliya Pryzant teaches at her home studio may be friendly and casual, but the curriculum is born from an academic appreciation of the classics. Holding an M.F.A. she earned in Russia—the land of Brullov, Aivazovsky, and Tolstoy's finger-painting nephew, Sergei—Nataliya serves as the artist-in-residence of Rush In Academy, where she helps pupils hone their talents in drawing, painting, and calligraphy as well as pottery, sculpture, and jewelry. While adults can learn techniques in private lessons free from judging eyes, kids gather for group classes and summer camps, where Nataliya challenges them to create their own original works. She also helps high-school seniors applying to art school construct quality portfolios and make a good impression without having to bribe admissions offers by sending them flattering busts of themselves.
