Wolverine Weekends With Caroline: Don’t Leave For Summer Vacation Without…

The countdown until summer has officially begun, but before we sell back our textbooks and pack up our rooms for the year, cross off these 5 Must-Dos before scooting out of town!
Raging on a week night
If you’ve never been to a rave at one of the local nightclubs on campus, you should make a point to do so ASAP. Whether it’s electronic dubstep or Avicii ‘s remixes, prepare to get hot, sweaty, and messy on a Wednesday night.  You’ll pretty much be stuck in a giant grinding fest all night, but what do you expect? It’s college.  Electronic Dance DJ, Porter Robinson, will be spinning at Necto on March 28th, so buy your tickets now!

Getting rowdy in the stands
Since the sunshine and warm weather are finally here, spend a Saturday afternoon cheering on your Wolverines at a baseball, softball or lacrosse game. With inexpensive admission fees and free public transportation, there’s no excuse to miss out, so grab your Michigan tees and “Block M” face tattoos and enjoy the springtime weather that’s been long overdue.

Celebrating St. Patty’s: college style
Yes, it’s that time of year again, collegiettes.  The unlimited green colored booze, drinking games that last all weekend, and day-time parties are only a few days away.  Start planning your outfit now – green is obviously a must – and don’t forget shamrock face stickers! Knock your homework and studying out early because most of the weekend will be completely filled with St. Patty’s festivities.
Boosting school spirit
With only six weeks of classes left, now’s the time to stock up on some new Michigan apparel that you can rock over the summer!  Whether it’s a tank top, sundress, bikini or a pair of flip-flops in maize & blue, you’ll want to rep your school pride wherever you travel.  With the winter season behind us, there’s plenty of new merchandise in campus stores, so it’s time to shop, shop, shop.

Watching movies for 6 days straight
Mark your calendars for March 27th – April 1st when AA will be holding its 50th annual independent film festival.  Enjoy six days of nonstop movie viewing with a variety of film genres at the Michigan Theater on State St.  If you’ve never been to the festival before, this is the year to start the tradition.  Even if you only have time to see one movie during the week, it’s a unique and wonderful experience you won’t regret.
