Sap collecting at UM-Dearborn
The annual collection of sap from campus sugar maple trees is one sure sign that spring is near. In this throwback photo from 1998, fifth-grade students from Newberry Elementary School in Detroit set off to collect sap. Dorothy McLeer, who submitted the photo, said the day was part of UM-Dearborn's Urban Environmental Education Program, which welcomed nearly 3,000 students to campus during a three-year period.
The College of Business part-time M.B.A. program again was recognized by U.S. News & World Report as one of the nation's best. This marks the sixth consecutive year UM-Dearborn has earned the honor.
