Coleman's Corn Maze Social for CoE Graduate Students

   

October 3, 2015
2:45-7:30
12758 Jordan Rd., Saline

Enjoy a fun fall afternoon finding your way through three mazes in a seventeen acre corn field.  There are three games you can play while in the mazes, which involve you finding 18 checkpoints.  Take a tractor-drawn hayride around the field and farm.  Make new friends under the tent or around the campfire, as you savor fresh-made donuts and apple cider.  Other activities include climbing the giant haystack, petting farm animals, and purchasing apples (1/2 a peck is $5) or pumpkins ($3-$9 range depending on size).

A limited number of seats are still available on the 4:15 bus for graduate students and their spouses/children.  To register for this bus, email ajrose@umich.edu.  This event will happen regardless of weather conditions.  Please only register if you absolutely plan to attend.  Guests who are not immediate family members are welcome to meet you at Coleman's Corn Maze and pay their own way.

This event is FREE and includes the following:
  • Optional bus transportation (Group 1 leaves North Campus at 2:45 and Coleman's at 6:00; Group 2 leaves North Campus at 4:15 and Coleman's at 7:30)
  • Admission to the corn mazes
