My Time as a Rackham Blogger

As I reach the end of my time in Ann Arbor, I’m doing a lot of restrospecting, so it was fortuitous that the Rackham blog team asked me to write about my experience of being a blogger. I started blogging in the fall of 2012, which means that I have been writing for almost 5 years now (and am the longest-serving member of the blog team!). Because 5 years is in some ways a very long time, I thought I would start this post by revisiting my application to become a Rackham blogger.

How I Moved to Ann Arbor

This is Part 2 of a series for graduate students who will begin their studies at U-M this fall. See Part 1: Navigating the Ann Arbor Housing Market and Part 3: Furnishing Your Apartment or Room on a Grad Student Budget.

So you’ve accepted your offer to join a graduate program at U-M. Congrats and welcome!

I remember the excitement after accepting my offer to join the Program in Biomedical Sciences at U-M, but I also remember the apprehension about moving across the country started setting in almost immediately. Luckily, I had a few months to figure out my moving plan.

Navigating the Ann Arbor Housing Market

The Ann Arbor rental housing market is pretty typical of a college town: there is high demand, not a lot of permanence, and the quality of housing varies wildly. On the positive side, unlike in many big cities, it is very possible to find reasonable housing within walking distance from campus.
