Michigan Athletics Announces Plans for Maize Star Events

Sept. 18, 2012

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- The University of Michigan athletic department announced today (Tuesday, Sept. 18) plans to launch a "Maize Star Events" marketing campaign, in an effort to create "WOW" experiences for fans, coaches and student-athletes.

Over the course of the season, the department will select individual games as "Maize Star" contests. These events will feature an enhanced game-day experience for the fans and provide a unique environment for all involved.

Maize Star games will also include the presence of popular U-M groups such as the band, along with the Michigan cheer and dance squad. Students enrolled in the H.A.I.L. program will receive additional points for attending these signature events.

The first Maize Star event of the fall season will take place when the Michigan volleyball team takes on Indiana on Friday (Sept. 21) at Cliff Keen Arena. A complete schedule of events and more information on the program can be found at: Michigan Maize Star Events.
