STUDENTS SPEND TIME IN WASHINGTON, AT WHITE HOUSE: When she visited the Law School this spring to deliver her Senior Day address, Senior Advisor to the President and 1981 Michigan Law grad Valerie Jarrett met with small groups of students from the Black Law Students Alliance and the Frank Murphy Society. She gave both groups an invitation to stop by the White House and see her sometime, so this summer, with a little help from administrators at the Law School, that's just what they did. Meanwhile, plenty of other Michigan students were already in the District, working summer jobs. Some of them, augmented by those visiting Valerie Jarrett, were captured by photographer Sam Hollenshead attending Friday's jazz happy hour in the sculpture garden at the Smithsonian.
