13 Days to Football and Reason #31 Love Ann Arbor

There are just 13 Days Left Till Kick-off, but we're running a little behind on the Countdown. So with 13 Days Left, you’re gonna get three reasons a day to Love Ann Arbor until we get caught up! So, here's #31 in our continuing Series of 100 Days to Football and 100 Reasons to Love Ann Arbor.

#31 – The Engineering Arch

One of those iconic, Michigan-esque settings that remain etched in your mind, even ten years after you've graduated. The Engin Arch is not just a beautiful piece of architecture but an entryway into Michigan life. I know it sounds hokie, but as you pass underneath the arch, you feel like you're leaving Ann Arbor and entering the University. As you pass through the arch the libraries are to your left, massive class rooms and research buildings stand to your right, and dead ahead lies the Diag. As an alumni you get goosebumps upon your return. And for the spouses, girlfriends and/or other family members, the area leading in is just beautiful. It's #31 in our Countdown and Reason #31 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.
