Michigan Union

Stopped. Watched. icon

Midnight: A couple hundred people, mostly students, are camped out in the lower level of the Michigan Union waiting in line for tickets to president Obama’s Friday morning speech. [photo] Union staff say they’ve told everyone that the line will be moving outside at 2 a.m. when the building closes. Most have sleeping bags or blankets – also, lots of laptops. Channel 4 News was here earlier, and interviewed the first person in line: Teman Evans, a lecturer at UM’s Taubman College of Architecture & Urban Planning. He seems totally prepared for the long haul – the union’s ticket office opens Thursday at 9 a.m. [photo]
