The Michigan Daily's 2014 Finals Study Guide

Bring the fun back
to college campuses


WeekendRoundup Editor
Dear Reader,
As you may or may not know,
the Weekend Roundup is a news
section of The Daily created this
semester to inform the campus
community of all of the amaz-
ing events that take place here
at the University each weekend,
as well as provide entertaining
columns and fun features for
students to consume when they
aren't looking for something su-
per serious. Whether or not it
but hopefully, this section will
only continue to expand and
improve in the future (and sug-
gestions are always welcome).
I've been an advocate for
this section because I believe it
fills an important hole not only
in the Daily, but on campus as
well: Students need fun. And
while I'll be the first to tout
the importance of hard news,
expert sources and in-depth
reporting, sometimes students
just need a break from that.
Tuesday, Slate published
a thought-provoking piece, at
least for all of us high-achieving
University students, entitled
"The Sad Demise of Collegiate
Fun." In it, author Rebecca
Schuman laments the loss of

Phi Beta Kappa is the oldest and most widely recognized scholarly honorary society in America. Founded in 1776 at the College of William and Mary, it celebrates
excellence in the liberal arts and sciences. The UM chapter, Alpha of Michigan, was founded in 1907 and inducted its hundred and sixth class into membership on
April 13, 2014. An invitation to join Phi Beta Kappa requires a history of impecable academic performance that reflects not only grades but breadth and depth of
intellectual engagement. Membership as a junior requires an almost perfect record. The Executive Committee of the Alpha of Michigan Chapter of Phi Beta Kappa
recognizes and congratulates the new members of this venerable society.
