Donna's Alphabet Challenge: U (December1, 2013)
Universities come in all sizes, orientations or specializations, affiliations, locations. A university education opens a universe of possiblities for those who are fortunate enough to be able to avail themselves of the opportunity. Shown here are three of the less obvious choices from among the many fine universities in Michigan.

Apologies in advance if I'm not able to comment much today. If I do, it will be quite late. Other activities yesterday and today require(d) my attention.
