5 Days to Football and Reasons #15, #14, and #13 to Love Ann Arbor

There are just 5 Days Left Till Kick-off, but we're running a little behind on the Countdown. So with 5 Days Left, you’re gonna get three reasons a post to Love Ann Arbor! So, here's #15 in our continuing Series of 100 Days to Football and 100 Reasons to Love Ann Arbor.

#15 – The Fish Bowl

How much time have you spent there? Lost count? That’s what I thought. Maybe things have changed over the years, but back in the days before wireless interwebs, blogs, and fancypants electric cars, all the LS&A students went to the Fish Bowl for their computing needs. The exterior walls leading into the building were glass then, but uglier than your friend’s new baby. Now it’s gorgeous, redone, and clean. But it still has that same feel. It’s still the same place full of panicked, cramming LS&A kids who should’ve read that last chapter before hitting the bars the night before. You can dress the Fish Bowl up, but it’s still he same place it’s always been. That’s why it's #15 in our Countdown and Reason #15 to Love Ann Arbor.

#14 – South Quad

Big. Ugly. Smack in the heart of campus. Snowball fights and easy access to Blimpy Burger. I’ll leave the stories to you guys, in the comments. It's #14 in our Countdown and Reason #14 to Love Ann Arbor.

#13 – The Law Library

If you even try to tell me there’s a more majestic, prettier place to study on campus, I may well smack you in the face and call you a liar. Just bare that in mind. The Law Library seems like its from another time. It wouldn’t look out of place at Oxford, Yale, or in one of those Harry Potter movies. It’s classic on a grand scale. But more impressive is the fact that once you get past the gothic beauty of the old library hall, you enter a state of the art subterranean law library that any Bond villain would be envious of. As a precondition of donating the land and buildings to the University, a covenant was placed in the contract requiring the University to build any additions or repairs in the exact same style as the existing buildings in the Law Quad. In an effort to avoid the prohibitive cost of building a gothic style addition to the Library, the University decided to go underground, and designed and built what is arguably one of the most technologically advanced legal libraries in the country, and the most unique. Yet another reason it's #13 in our Countdown and Reason #13 to Love Ann Arbor.

If you've got suggestions on places you'd like to see, email me with a photo or a description and we'll get your favorite hangouts in the countdown as well. I'll also try to get a link on the sidebar in the coming days that allows you to see all 100 Reasons to Love Ann Arbor.
