This fall break my roommate, Rori, and I went to the University of Michigan to visit her friend Arie! It was insane. Going to Michigan is completely different from Butler for obvious reasons like size. University of Michigan has about 30,000 while Butler has over 4000. Not only that the atmosphere is very different. Football at Michigan is huge unlike at Butler.
The Big House is what Michigan’s football stadium is called and it totally deserves its title. It is the largest college stadium in the nation. It fits 109,000 people in the stadium at full capacity. We went to the Michigan vs University of Illinois game and although it was pouring and freezing it was still awesome to experience. Arie was able to get us student tickets so that was exciting.
The weird thing about going to the Michigan game is it didn’t get me more excited about football, but just more excited for Butler basketball. Yes I realize how weird this is, but I cannot wait! Although I will say if you’ve never been to a Michigan game you need to experience it.
Overall this fall break was a lot of fun, but now it’s back to reality with school.
