It's called Michigan Union, opening in the heart of Ann Arbor's U of M campus in 1919, a multifunctional gathering place of students. JF Kennedy stood on the steps of this venerable institution 40 years ago announcing the formation of the Peace Corps prior to his election as our 35th US president. The Dalai Lama visited here as well as U of M alum and former US president Gerald Ford. It houses a coffee shop, pool hall, bookstore, a ball room used for weddings, concerts and proms and a wide assortment of rooms for guest speakers.
