Thursdays in the D

By Sarah Carson/WAYN Radio

It was a chilly but beautiful night on the Detroit riverfront last Thursday.  Students  gathered for the weekly Thursdays in the D activity: a trip on the Diamond Jack River Tour.  It took a little longer than expected to get started,  from the amount of  students joining  the fun, the shuttles had to make extra rounds.  Once the boat left the dock it was clear that the tour was going to be a good time.

As the boat made its way from the Riverwalk north of the Renaissance Center upstream towards Lake St. Clair, students learned about the industrial history of the area, along with more recent history, like what hotel the Beatles stayed in when they visited Detroit in the ‘60s!  Contemporary landmarks like Kid Rock’s house and the Manoogian Mansion were also pointed out.  The second half of the tour was largely a dance party, with several students forming a conga line and having fun dancing to the radio.  The riverboat offered snacks, soft drinks, and even alcoholic beverages to those over 21, which added to the festivity.

Overall, Thursdays in the D really stepped it up with something new and different this week, and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves.  Bringing students to the Riverwalk and on the boat tour was a great way to introduce them to an area of Detroit they may not have explored before. Wayne State University students  Katelin Maylum and Alisha Kennedy both looked forward to the experience. Maylum  hadn’t known there were even riverboat tours offered on the Detroit River before that night.

This week, Thursdays in the D takes students to the Charles H. Wright Museum for Salsa Night!  It’s free with a OneCard, and shuttles will leave from in front of Starbucks and University at 6 pm.
