ANN ARBOR, Mich. (CBS DETROIT) – The University of Michigan announced Wednesday morning that its internet connectivity and Wi-Fi network had been restored after a prolonged outage.
University President Santa J. Ono announced that an investigation into what the school called a “security issue” is ongoing.
