A few busloads of about 100 students from Grand Blanc high school rolled onto the University of Michigan’s campus for what their teacher described as the most anticipated day of their junior year. They didn’t come for athletics, or a run-of-the-mill tour; these advanced placement students came to the library to do some serious work on their semester-long research projects.
