Join us in Bert's Study Lounge to kick off the University Musical Society (UMS) season and celebrate the latest donation by Bert Askwith.

Askwith, 102-year-old Class of '31 U-M alumnus from NYC and the donor who made possible the Askwith Media Library, Bert's Cafe, and Bert's Study Lounge, made the donation to offer Michigan students an equal opportunity to experience the rich cultural events that the University Musical Society brings to campus. He has offered a free "Bert's Ticket" to every first year and new transfer student for a UMS event of their choice. Visit to learn more about the program.

Refreshments will be served, and first year and transfer students can sign up to claim a free UMS Bert's Ticket.
