Starting today, two #MichiganEngineers and a U-M friend from the LS&A school will join 27 other cyclists from around the U.S. on a 4,043 mile bike ride from Florida to California.
Why, you ask?
The trio, who are all natives of Kalamazoo, MI, are raising money and awareness for the Kalamazoo Valley Habitat for Humanity. During the 11-week trip, called “Bike and Build,” they’ll also be stopping off in New Orleans and other Gulf Coast communities to help those still recovering from Hurricane Katrina.
Just another example of our #MichiganEngineers making a difference in the world…

Spring is so plentiful this year, the squirrels are getting too fat to move…
Lazy squirrel on the Diag!

Whether it’s as small as one person or as large as a whole community, we have made an impact. — UMengineering graduate Sita Syal’s words of wisdom at #UMCOE13
We’re minutes away folks. #UMCOE13 is almost underway. Share your excitement - and snap a few pics while you’re at it!
Hey, I graduated!
Thanks mellodreamboats for the screencap
One of the many proud new #UMCOE13 graduates! Congrats - we look forward to seeing your posts as an alumnus!
The stage is set at Crisler for #UMCOE13. We’ll see you all there in a bit.
Thanks to Aerospace Engineer Colin McNally for the awesome pic!
While the rest of us back here in Ann Arbor are busy gearing up for the #UMCOE13 graduation ceremony, we may have forgotten that some students are still working hard to achieve their dreams - like the MHybrid racing team.
The second-year team won FOURTH PLACE nationally this year in the SAE Formula Hybrid Competition, AND took 2nd place in the Chrysler Innovation Award (which goes to teams who push the envelope when designing their cars).
“The team and I feel like we are on top of the world,” wrote co-leader Kara Stoltze in an email (while still on the road). “The accomplishments we’ve achieved and the sheer amount of improvement from this year and last year, our first year, makes us incredibly proud to be part of this team. The hard work, dedication, camaraderie, and passion we’ve witnessed over the past week has been inspiring.”
Big shout out to our #MichiganEngineers working to make hybrid cool again!
