“Fight Like Hell for Michigan and Michigamua!”*

And remember to wear your headdress! An observant reader points out this quote, on the front of the Michigan Union 100th Anniversary website:

“At the end of my junior year at Michigan I was inducted into Michigamua, the Senior honorary society. Part of the induction ceremony took place in the middle of the diag where the senior class performed the induction ceremony which included a certain amount of good nature “hazing” of the new inductees. At the conclusion of the cermonies in the middle of the diag, the new inductees were lead by rope, duck walking to the Michigan Union where we continued “duck walking” (squatting while walking) up the stairs to the Michigamua room. The memory of that walk (and the burning of the quads) will forever remain with me as an integral part of the Michigamua experience.

Peter M. Cornell, 1969″

It might be history, but I think another quote on the front page might be more appropriate since Michigamua’s past role at the University is offensive to some students and departments.

On campus, who’s a member of Michigamua? I’m glad you asked – here’s the “Pride” of 2003. Email addresses are @umich.edu.
