I was enthralled by the village streets of Ann Arbor when I first visited while I was in early Fall in my senior year of school.
Being a student down south, I had never genuinely seen colors on the trees change to this degree.
There are so various trees along each street that a stroll from one village block to the next will yield gorgeous and sublime views. Many people talk about The Diag, as it’s the heart of the downtown section and the center of student life at the University of MI Ann Arbor campus. This courtyard is littered with diagonal walkways going in a variety of instruction, which gives it the infamous name. Some of the buildings that are along The Diag are West Hall, Randall Lab, the Hatcher Graduate Library, the Shapiro Undergraduate Library, Angell Hall, Mason Hall, Haven Hall, Tisch Hall, and others. Although I’m not a University of MI student, I have an modern home on Hill St and often walk through The Diag on days when the foot traffic isn’t too high, especially in the Summer when there are much fewer students on campus. It’s regular for me to stink clouds of weed smoke while I’m walking through The Diag on days where the weather is pleasant outside. There is also the Law Quadrangle between Monroe St and University Ave which contains Neo-Gothic buildings and the University’s Law School. All of these picturesque areas are condo to clouds of marijuana smoke on varying days at varying times. It’s a basic fact about Ann Arbor and its downtown area.
