There was no snow that day so we took a drive onto the University of Michigan’s North Campus. This is where most of the engineering students spend their time. The campus has expanded since the last time I was there (1994) with a lot of new buildings. Among these is the Robert H. Lurie Engineering Center built with money from the Anne Robert H. Lurie Foundation. Robert Lurie (BSE IOE ’64, MSE ’66) made his fortune in real estate. The carillon bell tower located on North Campus also bears his name.
