    Each fall, Honors welcomes U-M parents on this highlight weekend with a special open house designed to introduce you to our faculty and staff. 

    You'll enjoy this year's keynote speaker, John U. Bacon. From his website: "[John] is a best-selling author and award-winning speaker, college teacher, and hockey coach, who appears often on TV and radio. Bacon has delivered speeches around the world on leadership, creativity, and diversity, among other subjects. In 2011, the MMPI named him, "Speaker of the Year.""

    "John U. Bacon is that rare combination of bulldog reporter and sympathetic ear. He spent last season as a fly on the wall of four Big Ten teams that had big stories. Buy [Fourth and Long: The Fight for the Soul of College Football.]" - Ivan Maisel, ESPN  

    Following the presentation, you'll sample delicious local fare at a meet-and-greet reception of faculty and staff in the Perlman Honors Commons.
