Missing from
the weekend
in A nn A rbor

Do you love the weekend?
And Beyonce? And watching home improvement
shows in your time off? Us too!
You should consider joining, it seems like we
have a lot in common.

Daily Weekend Contributor
Between a cappella con-
certs, theatrical plays and
sporting events, it might seem
like the University has it all.
But for those of you dreaming
of your weekend plans in the
middle of your Friday after-
noon class, you may find a few
things lacking.
Bringing out the hipster
Fairs and festivals have
their place on campus outside
of Welcome Week and fresh-
man affairs - in fact, Ann
Arbor is filled with them dur-
ing the summers and springs,
and the University organizes
its fair share of outdoor events
during the warmer seasons.
But, free community events
don't have to end as soon as the
sub-zero temperatures set in.
While sunny, green days
are a rarity during most of the
semester, indoor spaces can
do just as well. Street vendors
such as Curry Up and Beet
Box can easily set up in indoor
spaces - if the Unions allowed
it, that is - and entrepreneurs
could showcase their prod-
ucts, probably more easily,
inside. Student organizations
can put on mini-shows, giving

their members a free opportu-
nity to show their skills, and
any student looking to escape
the books for a bit can have the
perfect place to let out some
steam without being left out in
the cold.
Where my bands at?
If I were to judge a cam-
pus by its music ... well, the
University sure wouldn't top
that list. Music is social, and it
draws communities together
toward a singular purpose -
much like sports do. We come
together as an entire college
for football and basketball
games, but checking out local
music is hardly ever the go-to
weekend activity.
Don't get me wrong, there's
always music in Ann Arbor and
if you look hard enough, it's
not impossible to find a band at
a fraternity or a student orga-
nization benefit concert. With
intimate venues like The Ark
and the Blind Pig, great bands
do pop up every now and then.
But music on campus doesn't
permeate. There isn't a way
for me to find all the places on
campus where I can survey all
the free, local and live music
options playing that night and
choose the one I go to based on
what I'm feeling.

Hit the books
As much as we can com-
plain about the lack of more
social activities on campus
during the weekend, the truth
is that for most of us, week-
ends are prime studying time.
on weekends, scavenging
for an empty table becomes
the impossible task at the
undergraduate and graduate
libraries, and stress levels run
high. There's an SLC for the
broad sciences, and a Mathlab
for pure mathematics, but
what about the outliers? For
every subject - whether it be
something as commonplace
as communications or some-
thing as niche as Asian art
- there should be a set place
that I can go to every week to
find peer or GSI tutors willing
to ease me into understanding
elaborated concepts, as well
as other students wanting to
study in cohesive, tight-knit
Think of the number
of empty lecture halls,
classrooms and spaces on
weekends - all of this is
underutilized study space on
campus. Think of how accom-
plishable academics would be
if the resources were readily

That's it! If you want to
get really crazy, try using
some of the different Oreo
flavor options, or stir in your
own favorite cookie.

Just try to resist this delicacy.
Weekend Roundup Contributor
The perfect batch of pop-
corn doesn't always have to
be saturated with butter. In-
stead, top your popcorn with
the cookie that's been gracing
the shelves of American gro-
ceries stores for more than

100 years. This Oreo Popcorn
creation is simple to make
and very addicting. You've
been warned.
- Two bags of your favorite
brand of popcorn
- Two cups of white choco-
late chips
