Better known as the home of Welcome Wednesdays, free blue books, and, of course, Bagely, the Alumni Center is also a great place to study and hang out. To familiarize yourself with the building, take this quick tour.

The new entrance to the Alumni Center (above) welcomes students directly from Ingalls Mall. Starting Nov. 28, Student Life Members of the Alumni Association will have exclusive after-hours access to the building, which is normally open 9 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

As you explore the new space, make sure to visit the Immersion Room for a engaging storytelling experience and the Interactive Table to explore, search, and connect with other members of the U-M community.
