At the Michigan Union, whether you choose quiet or group, outdoors or in, you will have convenient access to many cafes and restaurants to keep you fueled, plus Barnes & Noble bookstore for any supplies. The Michigan League provides a great place in the center of campus to study before class, check e-mail, stop by U-go's Express or gather with friends at Beanster's or in the Underground.
