Are you looking for something fun to do over Fall break?  CoE graduate students are invited to visit Michigan’s historical gem—The Henry Ford!  The Office of Student Affairs will provide free transportation, and one free ticket for one of the activities listed below.  Due to the limited number of people who can fit on the bus, this event is restricted to CoE graduate students only.  

Activity Options:

  • Explore the Museum of American Innovation, which features must-see artifacts, such as: the bus that Rosa Parks sat in, Kennedy’s limousine that he was shot in, the Driving America Exhibition, the Dymaxion House, the chair that Lincoln was shot in, and the Allegheny Locomotive.
