Catering Changes at Palmer Commons


Every 5-7 years we review our catering options at Palmer Commons. Our new contract will begin May 1, 2017. We have chosen to reduce amount of catering companies on our list in order to provide consistent customer service to our guests. The caterers will be Katherine's, MCatering, Pizza House and Zingerman's. If you have already selected a different caterer for your upcoming event, we will honor that choice until August 31, 2017.  After that date you must choose from the above 4 listed catering companies.

Wolverine Press & Printing Services Exhibit

The Wolverine Press & Printing Services exhibit is a small exploration into official University of Michigan imagery from the 1950s and 1960s. The images included were printed from the original letterpress blocks used by Printing services to produced pamphlets and other assorted documents, and include the Peach Mountain Observatory radio telescope, dental diagrams, images of campus from that period, and more. The exhibit can be found near the 3rd floor Info Desk.
