WHEN STUDENTS PARTIED AT THyE PRESIDENT'S H{UE
Lee Bollinger's house party

On Nov. 8, 1997, Michigan
football fans huddled around
televisions and rallied as Michi-
gan went on to defeat then-un-
defeated Penn State.
Then-University President
Lee Bollinger was sitting in his
bedroom watching the Michi-
gan-Penn State game on televi-
sion with his wife when more
than 1,000 students gathered
outside the President's House
and began chanting Bollinger's
name. As the crowd grew rowdi-
er, instead of turning them away
or calling University Police, Bol-
linger opened the front door and
invited the students in.
"You can stay here as long as
you want and come inside," Bol-
linger said as he welcomed stu-
dents into the house on South
University Avenue, according to
Michigan Daily reports.
The 1,000-plus students
packed into every room of the

house.
Then Kinesiology sophomore
Bob Lehrer made himself at
home in Bollinger's bedroom.
"I sat on Lee Bollinger's bed
and was watching football on
TV," Lehrer told the Daily. "I
called from his phone to my
answering machine and left a
message. He gave me a hug and
on the way out he said he loved
us all."
Bollinger reported that noth-
ing was missing or broken after
students left, although several
students claimed to have stolen
beer from the president's refrig-
erator.
Such an event, where the
entire student body was wel-
comedintothe president'shouse,
is extremely rare. At the time,
History Prof. Nicholas Steneck
said the President's House had
not welcomed the entire student
body since Harlan Hatcher's ten-

ure as president from 1951-1967.
"It's not something that is
regularly done," he said.
When the house -is not being
used for student parties, it
serves many important Univer-
sity functions. The house serves
to host private fundraisers for
the University, receptions for
foreign dignitaries, among other
business related activities and
events. And contrary to campus
lore, University President Mary
Sue Coleman does call 815 S.
University Ave. home.
The house is the oldest build-
ing still standing on campus.
Originally, the house consisted
of a two-story rectangular sec-
tion that currently serves as the
center of the house.
Since it was completed in
1840, the house has undergone
multiple renovations and addi-
tions.
