Explore Michigan: Experience Nature

Two years ago, when I first started writing for the Rackham blog, I wrote a post about beach towns on Lake Michigan. That summer, I got engaged on a Lake Michigan beach. And, last month, I got married on that beach. For the wedding, we rented Camp Blodgett in the small town of West Olive, which, during the week, is home to a summer camp for kids. Camp Blodgett was the gorgeous, outdoor location that my wife and I love. We could look out at the vast beauty of Lake Michigan, feel the fine sand between our toes as we walked down to the beach, and have a bonfire with our family and friends. After the wedding, we went to Alaska for the honeymoon, and spent much of our time outdoors experiencing nature. We had a wonderful time and made lots of great memories.

Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion: A White Student's Perspective

Prelude: In light of recent events, I want to let all readers know that regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual identity, etc., in my opinion, you belong here at Michigan. I believe our diversity makes us stronger, and I think that I speak for most of my classmates when I say that you have an ally in us.
