AmericaJR’s Jason Rzucidlo recently visited the Museum on Main Street to check out their new exhibit “200 Years of Student Life at University of Michigan.” Visitors are invited to witness 200 years of world and regional history, reflected in the lives of U-M students. The exhibition includes nearly 50 historic objects and dozens of photos. The exhibition includes a recreation of a Martha Cook Residence Hall room, circa 1917, amongst the first on campus to house women. From the morning ritual of reading the Michigan Daily, to student reaction and involvement in U.S. wars, from the mandates and tweets of student organizations, to a survey of infamous late night Ann Arbor hot spots, this is a wide ranging exhibition with many interesting, entertaining and illuminating stories to tell.
