Embrace campus
arts opportunities

Discover what
performance art is
like at the 'U'
By REBECCA GODWIN
Daily Arts Writer
When freshmen arrive at the
University, they usually have a
pretty good idea of a lot of the
goings-on that happen all over
campus. They know about the
football games, the parties and
the various restaurants and
shops. But most freshmen lack
any knowledge when it comes to
all the arts events offered on and
off campus, which is unfortu-
nate because there are so many
other exciting events to partici-
pate in.
When I first arrived at Michi-
gan, I was in the same position. I
knew I wanted to participate in
and go to arts events and, after
some digging, I found so many
great outlets of expression that
it would be a crime not to share
some of my discoveries.
First off, the University Musi-
cal Society brings performers
from all over the country, and
some international, to Hill and
Rackham auditoriums. The per-
formances range from singers
to dancers and, several times
throughout the year, UMS offers
trips to Michigan Theater to
watch live broadcasted plays
from London's National Theatre.
Tickets can be a bit pricey if you
wish to sit close to the stage, but
