Parade Magazine tours Michigan Stadium

Submitted by UMProud on September 15th, 2016 at 7:00 AM


Brief article from Parade Magazine of their experience during a guided tour of Michigan Stadium.  The author visits some key areas and gives her impression of the experience.  After reading this I may organize one of these for my company.  Tours are fee based (very reasonable) and have to be scheduled in advance (link below).  The #1 thing I would love to do is run the tunnel!

I have taken my son’s class in a bus a couple of times and it is nothing short of fantastic (The trips only costed $5-$10 per person I believe).  I will say the original trip was set-up when I texted Dave Brandon, he connected me with the right groups and set the trips up.   First trip started out with gates opening to the Big House in north end of stadium and our bus pulling in.  Toured the suites, press box, went on the field where the kids spent over half hour throwing football, taking pictures, and talking with Brady Hoke and staff.  Then, off to locker room (fantastic).  Jon Falk guided us in the locker room, kids went nuts over Denard’s locker (both the Michigan and MSU Kids), then back out to run the tunnel.  From there, off to Chrisler where we were treated to John B. speaking to the kids (not planned, he was shooting baskets and came over to our group).  He was amazing with the kids.   Then, off to Schembechler for tour, then to Yost , then to the baseball/softball complex, and we finished touring the volleyball/wrestling facility.  If you have kids and ever get a chance it is one of the most enjoyable things you can do- and they will remember it forever.

Try the big house 5k in the spring. Its super cool to run through the tunnel, up the field and then touch the banner. I have done it the last two years and will try to do it every year from now on.
