Hello blog readers! I’m Jeff Lowe, one of the newest student bloggers. I’m eager to provide some new and exciting posts to this already vibrant blog. Before I do so, I would like to introduce myself. I am what my friends refer to as a “Michigan Man,” but not in the sense that I am the epitome of a well-educated Wolverine that bleeds maize and blue and sets an example for future students. I am simply a person that loves the state of Michigan, of which the University of Michigan is certainly a big part. Beyond that, however, I love the people, the culture, the towns, and especially the weather (in a non-facetious way). I have lived in Michigan nearly my whole life; I grew up in Southeast Michigan and attended Michigan Tech for my undergraduate schooling.
