A dialogue surrounding Halloween costumes. Free Cider and Donuts!


Saturday, November 2nd

UC 102 - Greening of Detroit; 9am-1pm

The Greening of Detroit has served as a leader of neighborhood green space development for two decades, creating sustainable, clean and green environments in Detroit’s neighborhoods to benefit those who live, work, and have businesses in nearby communities. The organization was founded in 1989 by a group of committed business and community leaders who were dedicated to restoring the city’s tree-lined boulevards, lush parks, and wooded neighborhoods that had been left barren by decades of trees lost to Dutch Elm diseases, storm damage, urban expansion and neglect. The Greening’s role rapidly expanded beyond tree planting projects to meet the growing needs of the community, and today the organization’s mission is to guide and inspire the growth of a “greener” Detroit through planting and educational programs, environmental leadership, advocacy and by building community capacity.  


Football Watch Party!; Kickoff at 3:30, Benzinger Library

North Campus Haunted Belltower; 8-11pm, North Campus Belltower
