Student videographer Ben Foote hit the first Welcome Wednesday of the year to our wonderful students in on a secret: The free bagels and coffee they enjoy every week are made possible by members of the Alumni Association! It’s just one small way Michigan alumni give back to the U-M community.
By the Numbers
- 1,900 students enjoy free breakfast every week (on average).
- We give out 52,800 bagels per year!
- 55 pounds of coffee gets slurped down per week, making a total of 1,210 pounds consumed per year.
