This outstanding suggestion from reader PMZ simply had to be next on the countdown. How can you think of your undergraduate days, or any time in Ann Arbor without remembering a trip on one of Michigan's Big Blue Busses. These guys were my only link to a social life my freshman year when the administration stuffed me in Bursley even though I wasn't an engineer. Michigan does a lot of things well, but it gets major props for maintaining a well oiled public transportation system that effectively links a diverse, spread out campus. Going to Briarwood? No problem. The train station. Easy. Gotta get to the game from the Engineering School? You're covered. Haven't slept in four days because you drank too much espresso and need to get the University Hospital? Climb on board. These, along with still running the "vomit comet" at 2am to North Campus, are just some of many reasons the Big Blue Busses are #93 on our Countdown.

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.
