This month’s Cover Story: Get your game on with Maize Rage!
The University of Michigan men’s basketball team has thus far had an extremely successful 2012-2-13 season. To date, the team boasts a 26-7 record and within this, a 17-1 winning home record. This means that throughout the season, the men’s team has only lost one home game over the span of five long months. The boys have been extremely successful and it is hoped that this success will continue as they move into tournament time. However, while the team is home to Big Ten Player of the Year Trey Burke and Big Ten First Team Selection Tim Hardaway Junior, Crisler Arena is filled with many other students of a different calibre. The extensive crowd aid in boosting the morale of these athletes and play a key role in helping maintain Michigan’s success.

The college classroom of today is, without question, markedly different from that of a decade ago. It is not often that you sit through a university lecture without hearing the tapping of fingers upon keys, without seeing dozens of screens aglow when the lights go out. College students today are aware more than ever of the necessity to have access to technology.
