Weekend Activities
Many of the all campus social

Union. These include: "Michi-

featuring a carnival, parade and
displays; "Homecoming," the spe-
cial weekend for alumni in which
affiliate and nonaffiliate groups
erect displays, "Musket," officially

the Union it also runs the Student

unofficial sports, arranges for
President Hatcher's open house
parties, Special Invitation Open
Houses, "Faculty-Family Day" and
arranged for various Union publi-
cations (the M Handbook, Calen-
dar Notebook, and the Union
House Information Sheet).
Allgthis is directly under the
general supervision of the Union
