When I joined the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, I was confronted with a few legends (none of them are dreadful like the Halloween Massacre ones)..
- There is a University of Michigan flag on the moon.In 2006, this was debunked in an article by the Michigan daily.
- Classes can never be officially canceled in inclement weather, because some law school student sued the University asking for a refund of his tuition. This was obviously untrue… at least it seems so!
- You will never graduate if you walk on the M symbol anywhere on campus. Interestingly, I have heard of this only once in my life – my very first day in the US. I was immediately informed as walked on the M. Since then, I religiously avoided walking on any M anywhere on campus🙂 It took me 6 years to believe that it was untrue after I graduated last year…
On second thoughts, maybe there is some truth in the last one – I am still at the University!
