To explore a diversity of opportunities and find something to believe in. To find a center and revolve his or her other responsibilities around it. , o adjust to change and new challenges while remaining balanced. I) (a two students balanced themselves exactly the same. Each had his or her own unique agenda that dictated individual responses to new successes and failures. ach had a different way of staying focused and remaining balanced. C tudents were not content with a perfect balance, however. By taking risks and seeking new opportunities, they challenged their own stability, m doing so, their centers often changed as they grew both socially and intellectually. The Michigan experience prepared students for the future. c vt taught them to seek new experiences. It taught them to find stability but continually challenge themselves.

Her destination: Michigan Stadium, where 500 students decked out in their graduation garb anticipated the commencement speech that was to play a major part in their rites of passage to adulthood. The first lady was ardently welcomed by a crowd of 5 1 ,000, and the stadium echoed with applause the moment she stepped onto the podium. The cheers and shouts of " Go Hill " amplified when Clinton was awarded an honorary Doctor of Laws degree. Her speech, which incorporated such topics as idealism, campaign pledges, and inspirational messages to the gradu- ates, was not just another political forum, as some expected. " I thought that she was only going to talk about her health care plan, but I liked that she really knew who she was talking to, " said Communications major Rob Gill. Clinton displayed this knowledge by addressing concerns pertinent to the U-M graduates. By calling U-M the " Harvard of the Midwest, " and praising basketball star Chris Webber for standing up to criticism after the team ' s loss in the NCAA finals, she demonstrated that she was not solely interested in political issues. When she did comment on politics, she asked the students to " take a collective breath, " and face the same issues that she and her husband were confronting, such as the national service program and her health care plan. Focusing on idealism, she urged students to dismiss the " Me Decade, " otherwise known as the ' 80s. Rather, she advocated that for the ' 90s everyone should take responsibility and become active members of the community. " I want to be idealistic, " she said. " I want to care about the world. I want to be connected to other people, and I hope you do as well. " Not everyone was receptive to Clinton ' s opinions. One group of protestors turned their backs to her as she began speaking. Also, planes overhead carried banners reading, " Equal Rights for Unborn First Ladies " and " College for the Unborn Too, Impeach Hillary. " Clinton chose to ignore subtle forms of protest. " I don ' t necessarily support the Bill and Hillary administration, " Computer Science major Joe Fix said concerning the protests, " but she did a good job of continuing as a dynamic and interesting speaker. " Getting Clinton to deliver the keynote address was not as complicated as it may seem. President Duderstadt sent her an invitation in January to accept the honorary degree and to speak at commencement. One of the Regents, Rebecca McGowan was a close acquaintance of Clinton ' s for many years and was instrumental in making sure the first lady was aware of the invitation. Two weeks prior to the ceremony, her acceptance was confirmed by the White House and University officials. Director of Public Affairs Lisa Baker stated that her visit was made possible by collaborative effort on the part of many University offices. " I thought that the event went well, " she said, " but that was largely due to an enormous amount of planning on the part of the University. " Overall the graduation ceremony went smoothly. De- partment of Public Safety Lt. James Smiley said, " The day went without a problem. Clinton was well received by the University community, faculty, and students. " The positive response was due to her image in the world today. " She is a role model for all women today, " said Physics major Eliza Fitzgerald. Clinton left U-M the same day, but what she left behind was the wisdom of a powerful first lady: " Embrace your challenges and don ' t lose heart when the buzzer sounds. There will always be ways for you to demonstrate your excellence if you don ' t give up.

" Like many students, Johnson said his first educa- tion was in the complexities of such a large campus and in the specialized language and customs of its inhabitants. Orientation, fortunately, provided many incoming students a crash course in the new culture by organizing campus tours and teaching new stu- dents how to take advantage of all the opportunities offered by the University. " Classes haven ' t even begun yet, " said John Riley after his three day orientation session, " and I already feel like I ' ve learned a lot. " Orientation leaders stressed that students were not just tourists getting acquainted with their new surroundings. " A lot of serious work goes on here, " said orientation leader and LSA Senior Kathy Cook. " The success of a student ' s first year depends a lot on the effort he or she gives at orientation. " Indeed, among the orientation activities were foreign language placement tests, first-year composition tests, and su- pervised registration for first-year classes. With strong performances on the tests, many students hoped to place out of foreign language and writing requirements, and nearly everyone struggled to master his her first experiences with computerized registration and to secure places in the most popular classes. As an opportunity for the new Wolverines to get a feel for the campus ' unique diversity and for the wide variety of organizations, many brief educational seminars were on the three-day agenda. Though not mandatory, these sessions were eye-openers for some incoming students. Students and orientation organizers emphasized, however, that the students learned as much from the social activities and tours as they did from the aca- demic workshops. " One of the keys to success at such a big university is knowing where to find and how to use all the academic and personal resources available here, " said Cook. To make the point, ori- entation leaders discussed the valuable help available from guidance counselors in the residence halls and academic departments, library resources at the UGLi and Graduate Library, and computing resources at Angell Hall and other sites around campus. Social activities also accustomed students to the unique opportunities and problems that arise on a crowded and sometimes impersonal campus. " I really thought that university life was just about reading books and taking tests, " said Niomi Abramson, " but after rooming with a complete stranger for three days, I realized there are a lot of other adjustments and challenges involved. " LSA Junior Arlene Olivero agreed saying she learned as many communication and interpersonal skills as academic skills in her two years of living in residence halls. Most juniors and seniors said they had a difficult time at the University until they learned their way around and developed the social skills necessary to build friendships and strengthen relationships. Ori- entation sought to provide new students a head start by exposing them to the many different facets of uni- versity life, and most students praised the effort. " You really have to know a place and feel like you belong before you can call it home, " said Olivero. Michigan Life 29 AQT FAIR PROVIDES ENSOQY UTDAVAGANZA he art fairs are an assault on the senses, " claimed WEMU Music Director Landa Yohn as she surveyed the crowds and dis- plays on East Liberty. " Everything is going at once: eyes, ears, nose. " Most visitors to the 1993 Ann Arbor art fairs expressed a similar feeling, as they came to find a single present or particular art form, but soon found themselves overwhelmed by hundreds of innovative and cre- ative attractions and performances. The " sensory extravaganza " began even before visitors made their way to the shops and displays, as the sounds of dozens of bands and singers filled the streets from the Hill area to downtown. Vet- eran performer Mr. B. again wheeled his piano into the center of South University five to six times a day to entertain visitors. Newcomers like the Venus Ensemble and Phillips Fiddlers performed everything from Reggae and jazz to gospel and French ballads. " It ' s like spinning your dial through every station on the radio, " said LSA junior Sarah Shin. " You get a taste of just about every style and variety of music you can imagine. " The sense of smell and taste were particularly stimulated by fair organizers, as traditional res- taurants and dozens of street vendors offered traditional cotton candy and pretzels and dozens of more exotic fruits, foreign pasteries, shish-ka- bobs, and candies. " It ' s a good thing these fairs require so much walking, because it ' s going to take a lot of exercise to work off all these calories, " said Detroit resident Julie Thompson with funnel cake in hand. But Thompson was not the only one who indulged: An Ann Arbor Transportation Au- thority survey estimated that over $10 million was spent on food alone during the four day event. Although most people associate art with strict hands-off policies, the fairs did their best to accomodate the sense of touch as well. The Ann Arbor Art Association, for example, invited visi- tors to make paper molas, a Mexican-Indian art using cut and layered paper. The fair particularly encouraged children to create sun visors, origami, and jewelry at the popular Imagination Station and children ' s activity booths. Children and adults alike drew everything from traditional mountain sunrises to cartoon space creatures for the Chalk the Park program. The sense of sight, of course, was over- whelmed by tens of thousands of paintings, sculptures, and other works of art. The visitors who came expressly to buy an artwork were not disappointed. " The only problem is that there is so much good art it ' s hard to decide what ' s best, " said Ann Arbor resident John Olans, who finally decided on a blue and green glass paperweight. Those who came just to survey the variety of creative expression were likewise satisfied by everything from tiny houses for pet insects to life- sized clay models of human heads and bodies. Whatever their intent, visitors said they were amazed by the number and variety of works on display. " It ' s like the biggest art gallery in the world, " whispered Olans, gathering strength for the long march down Liberty and its side streets. At the WEMU music stage Linda Yohn complained that she couldn ' t concentrate on her job with so many tempting distractions around her, but her words belied a satisfied grin that was shared by many visitors. Although most days they shunned large crowds, greasy foods, and expensive pur- chases, the art fairs allowed participants to escape their usual worries and enjoy the sounds and sights of hundreds of different cultures and imaginations. " You don ' t have time to worry about work or the economy or anything, " said former student Sean McCready. " The fairs keep every part of the mind and body completely occupied so all you can do is let go and enjoy the sensation.

Cliche, adage, or truism, whatever term you choose, Michigan students re- turned to school this fall to find that university officials had taken these words to heart. In the early summer, while most students were home basking in the warm glow of another year survived, the University began the history making renovation of its much maligned, and much beloved under- graduate library, known to all as the UGLi. When students arrived for fall term, many were shocked to find the UGLi quite literally a mere shell of its former self. As one student put it, " I thought they were tearing it down. ..the place looks com- pletely gutted. " After the initial shock, a certain sadness could be detected in the eyes and voices of some students. " It sure won ' t be the UGLi I used to know, " said one senior, after learning about the planned renovation. And this was exactly what university officials were counting on. Acting Graduate Library Head Barbara MacAdam commented on the UGLi changes being made, " Prob- ably no other building on campus has provoked such a love-hate relationship with students they com- plain about having to go to the UGLi, the noise, the crowding, and the aesthetics and appear to delight in encountering each other in great numbers! If the UGLi didn ' t exist, students would probably have to invent it. We ' ll have to see if they still call it the UGLi when it ' s not! " Amazingly, the project ' s architect, Albert Kahn Assoc. of Detroit, and the general contractor, Spence Bros, of Saginaw, were the same team that constructed the original UGLi over 30 years ago. When the doors first opened in 1958, the UGLi held about 43,000 volumes, and was revered as the first library in the country to devote itself exclu- sively to the needs of undergraduate students at a public institution. It was also reviled by students for its multi-colored wall panels and lack of private space. The name UGLi seemed to fit from the very beginning and has been used ever since. In spite of its appearance, the library persevered, and through the years received acclaim for the strength of its i GETS A FACE LIFT collection of now over 200,000 volumes, innova- tive services, outreach programs, and more importantly, the acceptance of Michigan students. In keeping with this proud tradition, the Univer- sity had high hopes for the future of the UGLi. MacAdam added, " ...our first goal is to create a modern learning, research, and study environment for undergraduates. To do this we will create a ' smart ' building capable of providing access to electronic and multimedia information resources. Also included in the new structure will be a Re- serve Reading Room, a microcomputer center, 15 new small-group study rooms for students, and many other amenities to make the research and study environment more conducive to student work. " Ultimately, the student population, which made the UGLi one of the busiest places on campus, had the power to decide if the improvements were improvements after all. An average day at the UGLi saw as many as 5,000 people enter through its doors. That number reached as high as 8,000 during busy times of the semester. Conserva- tively, during the life span of the UGLi, more than 27,200,000 people crossed the threshold of this venerable building. The renovations were scheduled to take almost two years, at a cost of $11.5 million, almost four times the cost of the original structure. Each floor was expected to take some four months to com- plete, with additional time to complete the exterior and bridges connecting the UGLi to the Graduate Library and West Engineering. MacAdam said, " ...the new exterior should be a dramatic aesthetic improvementthe masonry, roofing, granite, tiles, etc., were carefully chosen to mesh harmoniously with existing campus structures while still being a building that looks contemporary and inviting. " According to library lore, when the UGLi first opened for, service on January 16, 1958, there was a line of students outside, waiting for the doors to open. And although the past 30 years have seen quite a few changes to the UGLi, one thing surely remains the same, the UGLi is one place universally recalled with fondness as a home away from home.

They were thinking about graduation and life after college. They were searching for opportunities for their future. Although a large percentage of students chose to pursue a graduate degree, others decided to enter the work force. " It ' s crucial that I work right away, " said Business School senior Chris Campana. " I need job experience before I enter an MBA program, otherwise the higher educa- tion won ' t be relevant. " Campana conducted her job search primarily through the Business School and devoted essentially all her spare time to the search. Conducting a job search while in school was an incredible task for seniors who already had multiple responsibilities. " Ajobsearchisequiva- lent to a four-credit course, " said LSA senior Michelle Toger, " I wish I had more time to devote to it. " Toger juggled a five-class course load with her job search. To assist seniors with their job search, the Career Planning and Placement office offered valuable resources, programs, and presentations. Hundreds of students were registered in the On- Campus Recruitment Program, which linked recruiters from several companies with qualified graduates. Through this program, seniors had an opportunity to request interviews with specific companies and then interview at CP P. CP P Presentations such as " From Back- pack to Briefcase: Finding a Job AfterGraduation " and " Marketing Your Abilities: The Successful Job Seeker ' s Perspective " gave students an edge with their job search. " The ' Opportuni- ties in the Not-for- Profit Sector ' presentation gave me several leads and ideas about these types of positions, " said Toger. In addition, CP P had a vast collection of resources in its library, walk-in advising and career counseling, resume assistance, and up- dated job bulletins. Seniors also had an option to participate in a mock interview. CP P representatives conducted the interviews, video-taping and rating the participants ' per- formance. This gave students a better idea of what to expect at a real interview. Though CP P accommodated most of students ' career exploration needs, the stu- dents still had to be in-tune with their own strengths and weaknesses and market them- selves accordingly. Greg Antilla, an LSA Accounting concentrator, found his liberal arts status was both an advantage and disad- vantage in his job search. " Some companies favor Business School students, but others appreciate that my liberal arts education has made me more well-rounded, " said Antilla. Antilla, who was the Michigan Daily Business Manager, a Math tutor, and a volunteer for the Income Tax Assistance Program, empha- sized the importance of his work experience to potential employers. The senior job search required time, re- sources, and aknowledge of one ' s own abilities and objectives. More importantly, it required a strong perservering spirit and self-confi- dence. For those who were determined, the job search led to exciting opportunities and career options. by Lisa Muffins M ichigan L ife 35 WHAT Do You BELIEVE? o, of course I ' m not su- perstitious. That ' s all crazy stuff just made up to scare you. Nobody actually ever really believes that stuff, " boasted Deondre Sims, a LSA senior referring to the myriad of superstitions and beliefs held on campus. But maybe some really did believe? From avoid- ing the block ' M ' on the Diag to wearing the same pair of lucky socks for an exam, students at Michigan held to many of these strange campus convictions. The most popular fear was that by stepping on the block ' M ' on the Diag, one would be doomed to fail his or her first blue book exam. The only way to redeem oneself was to run from the Diag at the stroke of midnight to the puma statues in front of the Natural Science Museum and back before the Bell Tower stopped chiming. Even at the height of traffic across the Diag one could easily discern the conscious stream of traffic around the monumental ' M ' as well as those who deliberately stomped upon it in defiance. Emotions about the validity of this claim ranged from faith to true skeptism. Odessa Flores, an LSA sophomore, openly admitted, " I stepped on the ' M ' the very first day of classes. I had psyched myself into believing I was going to fail my Classic Civ. Bluebook, but I ended up with a B-. It ' s not really failing, I guess, but I wonder if I would have done better if I had been more careful around that ' M ' . Now, I ' m very careful to avoid it. " Both these views were in sharp contrast to the confidence of Toby Bochan, a second-year English major, who vehemently claimed the belief was " a hoax passed on to incoming freshmen to make them look stupid walking around on some square on the ground. " There were still other lesser-known campus superstitions. For example, the puma statues supposedly roared when a female virgin passed by. " It ' s like I feel guilty for not being one every time I walk by those statue animals ' cause they never make a sound, " exclaimed one anonymous Kinesiology junior. Many other similar, but equally strange, superstitions were also known around campus. Many individuals also postulated their own theories for luck. Whether involving trinkets to carry, special jewelry to wear, or sitting in the same seat on exam days, superstitious ideas ranged from the norm to slightly strange. Josef Woodson, a Dance School sophomore, had two crystal luck charms and carried a special worry stone. These assurances weren ' t always helpful ac- cording to Garrison Whittaker, an Engineering School sophomore, who had a small beaded necklace that he wore when he took a test: " When I do well on a test, it ' s a good luck charm. When I don ' t, I blame it on the beads. I throw them into the back of a drawer and forget about them for a month or so, and then I ' ll find them and try them out again. " Junior Chris Middleton didn ' t have any su- perstitious beliefs: " All that stuff is garbage. If you ' re going to do well on a test, it ' s because you studied hard and were prepared, not because you ' re wearing the right anything. It ' s just to make people feel better. If they don ' t do so well, they have something to blame it on. " Whatever the reasoning, whatever the ap- proach, it was highly apparent that superstitions were rampant at Michigan in many shapes and forms, and to a variety of degrees. by ( Punita ( Dani 36 Michigan Life -Don ' t step on the ' M ' l liar il .] -tiklciii ' ' M in tin- n i.ii rof d before tiikina hi or her firs hook i-xam, no matter how hes--r;iilurc! --Jimmy Bosse Virgins beware of the Natural Science Museums ' pumas.

Though, as darkness surrounded the city, those roaming the streets took the chance that their safety might be jeopardized. Lt. Vem Baisden, a supervisor of Campus Safety, said a large number of the 2,127 criminal cases reported in 1992 were alco- hol related, though it varied whether it was the assailant or the victim who was intoxi- cated. Baisden, who urged students to use common sense when drinking, also advised the party-hoppers to travel in groups. One South Quad Resident recalled, " My friend was a little drunk, so she asked some people she had been hanging out with at the party to take her home. They brought her up to our room but then just hung out on the stairwell and wouldn ' t leave. We probably should have called security, but we locked our door instead. " Fortunately the danger of the party-filled weekends was mitigated by several organiza- tions who were available to provide " a friend " to those who needed to walk home. Safewalk and Northwalk , student volunteer organiza- tions available to assist students to their dorms apartments, were established in 1 986 and escorted over 3,000 students each year. When called, a co-ed or all-female team of two accompanied a student within a 20- minute radius of the Diag or as far as Bursley if the student was on North Campus. Those who volunteered their services to Safewalk or Northwalk were required to complete numerous training sessions, which included a variety of videos and seminars, and to give consent for a criminal background check. According to co-Director Dr. Jim Sullivan, uni- versities across the country called inquiring about U of M ' s program including Michigan State, Ohio State, and the University of California at Berkeley. The Night Owl service, which ran every night from 8 p.m. to 3 a.m., provided another alterna- tive to tackling the streets alone. The mini-bus took students to over a dozen locations free of charge. Some Michigan students took an extra step in securing their safety by enrolling in one of the many self-defense classes at the University. First- year student John Goulding, who decided to try his hand at Tae Kwon Do, said he joined the class for self-defense reasons. " I ' m a small person and I want to defend myself against bigger people. " Goulding elaborated commenting, " I think the classes ' activities will be very helpful should an instance arise when my safety might be threat- ened. So far, we ' ve learned how to escape a wrist hold and to knock a knife from an attacker ' s hand. We ' ve also worked on building strength and confidence. " Though knowledge of martial arts reassured some students, Lt. Baisden stated that although in certain situations the use of these tactics is a viable means of defense, it ' s rarely practical or possible. Baisden recommended giv- ing a robber exactly what is wanted as quickly as possible to avoid provoking violence and the need to exercise physical defense. The University also provided 50 emergency phone locations across Central and North Cam- pus which were very helpful if any type of emergency situation ever arose. No dialing was necessary, and Campus Safety officers were dis- patched to the location immediately. Law enforcement officers stressed the best prevention of safety problems is avoiding situa- tions that lead to trouble all together. 38 Michigan Life .

The Ninth Annual Sexual Assault Awareness Week, held October 24 through October 29, gave University of Michigan students the op- portunity to learn about the facts and myths of rape, how to prevent it, and what to do if they are a survivor or know someone who is. Sponsored by the Sexual Assault Prevention and Aware- ness Center, or SAPAC, the week offered lectures, a self-defense workshop for women, the SAFEHouse ground breaking ceremony, and the Seventh Annual Speakout. The self-defense workshop included instructors who taught participants the basic defense moves. SAFEHouse ' s ground breaking ceremony was an event which celebrated the establishment of a new site. " This week makes us very visible. We start getting requests for more and more workshops, " said Kata Issari, senior counselor at SAPAC. " This week had a great turnout-it was very responsive. People are getting out for the first time, as well as those who have been here before, " she added. Established in February of 1986, SAPAC firmly believed that education is one of the best weapons in combating rape and other acts of sexual violence. The center ' s mission was to counsel, educate, and promote greater safety on campus (for example, Safewalk Northwalk). " For future years, we hope that by the time students are seniors, they ' ll be more aware of these issues, " Issari said. Although SAPAC was staffed with directors and coordinators, it also encouraged volunteers to help operate the counseling line and plan activities and workshops. SAPAC saw several hundred people per year and its education program reached three to five thousand people. The Seventh Annual Speakout on Sexual Violence certainly proved that SAPAC was gaining wider recogni- tion every year. With a generous mix of males and females, the pleasingly large audience in the Michigan Union Ball- room listened intently to public and anonymous speakers. Some stressed they were survivors of rape, not victims, as victim implies negativity. They showed that survivor means ongoing healing and focued efforts on helping the survivor understand that the sexual abuse wasn ' t their fault. The " traditional " silence about sexual assault was first broken by people who had the courage to speak out, and further shattered by thunderous applause and cheers of support and encouragement from the audience. Adding to the inspirational atmosphere of the Speakout, balloons of every color read " Imagine: A World Without Rape, " and were tied to easels displaying literature and artwork of various types on sexual violence. " There was an overall strength in the room. Not just in powerful speakers, but a powerful audience as well-an equilibrium. There was a cohesive sense of strength I ' ve never experienced before, " said an anonymous senior. " The Speakout was a very empowering experience, " said senior Rona Kobell. " It was moving to be in a room where survivors of sexual assault could relate their traumatic experiences to a supportive and understanding audience. " The success of the events even surprised program axirdi- nators, who hoped the large turnouts would continue and aid positive changes on campus. Issari, who was also very moved by the Speakout, encouraged everyone to think about what had happened there that night: " Someday, we won ' t need to have an event like this. " Michigan Life 41 .

They were heard on radio and television ads, read in newspapers and seen in grocery stores. But for some people, especially the students of U-M, these were not simply words. This was a way of life, and it wasn ' t learned overnight. It took not only serious label reading and comparative shop- ping, but the inner drive to want to be a healthy person. So, what constituted a healthy person, and why were people becoming so fanatical about it ? Unfortunately, many students came to college and suddenly changed their regular eating and exercise habits because it was " cool " or fashion- able. But, they really didn ' t know the real reasons behind a healthy diet and exercise. Those who did know were people who worked hard every day at the life style they chose for themselves. Included were the partial vegetar- ians, or those who ate white meat and fish occasionally, and full vegetarians or " vegans " , those who completely omitted all types of meat, eggs, milk and other dairy products from their diet. What were their reasons? " Health. I choose to eat healthy because it makes me fell more alive, more energetic, " said Junior Jennifer Yu. " But sometimes, I get a craving for chicken or a burger and I realize it ' s just a passing thing. " This proved it took hard work and determination to live this way, so most needed to be really serious; it took a while to adjust to this new way of life. " There are two main things to remember: moderation and a balanced diet, " Yu added. " Then everything else will fall into place. " What about those who didn ' t live a vegetar- DAZE ian life style for health reasons alone? David Miller, a graduate student in the School of Pharmacy said, " It takes a more substantial amount of land to support a meat-eating diet than it does a vegetarian diet. That ' s one of the reasons I became a vegetarian. " Eating healthy was only half the battle. Hand in hand with diet came exercise. If students ate well and got plenty of exercise, they were well on their way to a completely healthy life style. " I try to incorporate exercise into my schedule at least three times per week, as well as eating a vegetariandiet, " said Maggie La Pietra, a recent UM graduate. " Modera- tion and substitution are important as well. There are several products on the market that are great substitutes for less-healthy ones and you can hardly tell the difference. Just explore and see what ' s out there. " Dan Phillips, who worked out at the Intramural Building regu- larly, said exercise was the key to a healthy way of life. " As long as you eat well and keep active, you can afford to splurge every once and a while. Consistency is the most impor- tant factor, because if you want results, then you have to keep at it. You won ' t get anything accomplished otherwise. " Also, for those interested in a change in taste, there were several restaurants around Ann Arbor that were worth exploring. One that got quite a buzz around campus was Seva Restaurant and Market. " Our primary focus is fresh, good food, " said manager Linda Jaseck. " We have entrees every day with unique and different specials. Our chargrilled vegetables are really popular; we also have a menu with vegan foods as well as a whole section of fat free food. " Their most popular dish? The Smothered Burrito. Sound interesting? Who ever said a healthy diet had to be boring?! fry ' Ebjse 9-(ardebect i Michigan Life 43 _Ji I A CALL To SERVICE olunteering ' once solely implied donning r army fatigues and raising a stiff hand to the command of " Ten-hut! " A lot has changed since then. In 1993, the word extended into realms of work outside of the military, including charity work, social work, community work, and others. Each year many U-M students elected to answer the call for humane service and dress in their own uniforms for battle. In this crusade, they were mobilized with the goal of improving community living, assisting those in need, and in the long-run, bringing about social change. Those willing to volunteer their time were numerous on the U-M campus. Many organizations relied heavily on student volunteers and the enthusiasm that accompanied them to keep their operations running. Hospitals, medical labs, research labs, and other vocational institutions only benefited from the services which students provided of their own free will. Other community organizations, such as those aiding senior citizens or the disabled, were kept alive by the people who helped themselves by helping others. There were numerous programs at the University which encouraged students ' interest and involvement. The Greek system mandated philanthropic work, while dorms formed special groups which joined altruists together. Other programs offered students credit for volunteer work and even provided various volunteering options. One such University program was Project Serve, which functioned as a liaison between the students and about 150 local service organizations. By offering information on such programs as Alternative Spring Break, Into the Streets, and women and children counseling, it provided ample opportu- nities for the students for positive volunteer work. According to the organizers, their mission was " to foster, through com- munity service and social action, a student movement at the University of Michigan that though tfully addresses the chal- lenges that we face as a society. " Student Co-Chair Maggie Kronk advocated the benefits of Project Serve: " We are a positive organization looking towards the future with hope. We absolutely believe that what we are doing is helping others and educating others. " Jon Nash, head of " Into the Streets " which dealt with such issues as homelessness, hunger, the environment, and more, said, " It ' s a type of fulfillment for me to lead others into community service so that they can also receive the rewards that I have. " Project Community was a program similar to Project Serve, however it was different in that students enrolled in the program and received academic credit for their hours worked. The courses offered covered a wide range of services, including leadership, intergroup relations, education, crimi- nal justice, and chemical dependency. Jeff Howard, director of the Office of Community Service Learning, believed that the benefits students gained from this program were plenti- ful. He commented, " In Project Community, students have the opportunity to serve in the community while learning sociology. They come away from the experience having furthered their sense of social responsibility, their under- standing of inequality in this society, and with a heightened sense of self-awareness and their own values. " Some students involved in this program or Project Serve found the experience essential to their human experience. Miriam Cotein, LSA Honors sophomore, asserted, " I am involved with community service because I don ' t know how to live any other way. " In addition to gaining self-satisfaction, many students felt that their volunteer work provided valuable experiences for future careers. Jenny Schafer, a volunteer at U-M ' s Home- Med, felt her work planted solid roots for her career in pharmacy: " Working with the medical supplies has given me hands-on experience while allowing me to see another side of pharmacy outside of retail. It has also helped me to see the different options available in the field. " Volunteers did not always receive monetary payment, but for the many individuals who displayed the uniform of selflessness and dedicated themselves to the welfare of oth- ers, they certainly received the badge of goodwill.

Maybe it was the tension, the excitement, the charisma that shook the stadium every Saturday in the Fall when 100,000 Michigan faithful anxiously waited to see if this Wolver- ine team would continue the great tradition that started with Fielding H. Yost. Could it have been the chills that one felt when over 200 Michigan band members flowed out of the eastern sideline, as they formed the block letter ' M, ' and they played the greatest fight song in the United States of America: The Michigan Victors? Is it the feeling of pride one sensed while studying at the Law Library when he or she realized that he or she was attending one of the greatest universities in the world. Or was it the feeling of tradition one felt walking through the Diag knowing that students had been doing the same all the way back to 1817? The truth was that all of those things com- prised the Michigan spirit: cheering for the sports teams, feeding the squirrels on the Diag, listening to the bells in the Burton Tower, smiling ' hi ' to good-old Shakey Jake.. ..Each one, and millions of other similar sensations, were only a part of the college experience that U-M students were so fortunate to have been a part of. This college experience was exemplified by all the University of Michigan had to offer. The University was known for its strong academic tradition, but students also enjoyed a rich vari- ety of extracurricular activities and the op- portunity to explore new cultures and ideas. First-year student Kevin McCalla, who en- tered the University ' s engineering school, spent many hours in the classroom but also developed his interests by joining the Solar Car team, and established new relationships by rushing the Greek system. McCalla commented, " I found the extracurricular options overwhelming at first-I didn ' t know which I wanted to get involved with first. I just started with what grabbed my interest the most, and what would look good on a resume-rmlookingintoI-Mwrestlingnext. " In 1973 in a game versus Ohio State, the late, great Bob Ufer, the personification of Michigan spirit, made the remark, " ' M ' Club supports you Michigan, and so does everyone from coast to coast, from the coast of Lake Erie to the coast of Lake Michigan. " Ufer said the University was beloved throughout the state, country, and the world. U-M ' s campus went far beyond Ann Arbor. In fact, its boundary reached all the way to the moon, where the flag was planted by an all-Michigan alumni Apollo crew. But the Michigan spirit was much bigger than even that. It was also the one force that bonded students and professors togetherfrom all over the world. Michigan students all generally had the same love for the Univer- sity, and most knew that the tradition encouraged them to continue their spirit to keep the school the leader and best. Looking back now on your great Alma Mater, sing to the colors that float in the light! Hurrah for the yellow and blue! Michigan Life 47 Disco NIGHT Uff WJ hoever said that f f disco was out had never been to Disco N ight at the Nectar- ine Ballroom. Since May 1992, students all over campus put on their " boogie shoes " and took a journe y back to the days when Disco was king. Every Wednes- day night, the Nectarine featured Disco Night, a wildly popular disco fest. Stu- dents 19 and over danced to the hot hits of the 1970 ' s, including all-time favor- ites such as " Staying Alive " , " Grease " , " YMCA " , " Funkytown " and " Copacabana. " By midnight, the dance floor was so jam-packed that a person could hardly move, let alone dance. If it wasn ' t al- ready full, the dance floor was always at its capacity during the " hustle. " In fact, when the " hustle " began, students had to take care to avoid being trampled! " The Nectarine is the only place I can go to dance to my favorite groups from the 70 ' s, like the Bee Gee ' s, Blondie, and the Village People, " claimed LSA senior Lisa K. Mullins, " and, I love to dance the hustle. " Many other factors besides the music and dancing contributed to the overall enjoyment of Disco Night. On the TV monitors, people could view movies from the 70 ' s like " Saturday Night Fever, " " Grease, " and the " Rocky Horror Picture Show. " Students found it amazing that they remembered the movies and could still recite the lines verbatim! There were some pretty interesting music vid- FEVED eos to be seen at Disco night as well. These included videos by Blondie and the Village People. Yet, surely the highlight was the hilariously funny video " It ' s Raining Men, " where men fall from the sky. The outrageous costumes also merited mention. Bell-bottoms, leisure suits, tight mini-skirts and platform shoes were the norm, and John Travolta look-alikes ran rampant. Since there was no cover charge for those who dressed in 70 ' s outfits, people spared no expense in getting decked out for the occasion. Students got their clothes from many different sources. Some got theirs from resale shops, while others, like School of Education senior Missy Carson, got theirs " from raiding mom ' s basement for old clothes. " Disco Night was a raging success on campus. Students loved getting decked out in 70 ' s attire and dancing to the tunes they grew up with. LSA junior Monica Moon commented, " I can part my hair down the middle, wear blue eye shadow, platforms, and get down to my favorite 70 ' s beat. " But beyond that, Disco Night served as a stress reliever. One U-M student mentioned, " It is somewhere to go to see old friends with- out having to worry about the added responsibilities of drinking. And, because most everyone is dressed up and just out to have fun, it ' s an easy atmosphere to meet others. " In 1993, where else could you act silly for a couple of hours with a huge crowd of people ? Disco N ight was certainly unique, and quickly became something for students to look forward to each week. 48 Michigan Life Boogying to the tunes, one regular sports his 70 ' s ensemble and shows off his disco flare. -- Jimmy Basse Reminicent of the 70 ' s yesteryears, the Nectarine ' s disco ball hung directly above the dance floor. -- Jimmy Basse Michigan Life 49 Kites of all sorts were displayed flying over North Miami Beach on this February afternoon.

Initially, they had a hard time concentrating in classes, and eventually they began to lack the necessary motiva- tion for going to class and studying. There were only a couple of ways to combat this onset of academic insanity, and sleeping through the weekends often wasn ' t the most appealing answer. Many students opted just to get away from campus for awhile, because they found the best way to clear their heads of all the worries of University life was just to simply escape them. In a school with over thirty- six thousand students, it wasn ' t hard to figure out where some of the hot spots were for a weekend getaway. The most obvious choices for a short vacation were the very places that drove U-M students ' friends crazy: their own colleges. Some U-M students ventured to other universities to party because they provided free living arrangements, parties, and a new, homework-free environment. In-state U-M students, who very likely had friends at the neighboring colleges, ventured to West- ern Michigan University, Eastern Michigan University and Michigan State. Out-of-state students often went along for the ride. The colleges in neighboring states also attracted U-M students from time to time. Even though the Wolverines were technically rivals of universities like Ohio State, Indiana, Northwestern, Purdue, Notre Dame, Illinois and others, some students donned the maize and blue colors and visited " enemy territory " anyway. Some trips became a form of weekend recreation, as many sports supporters took road trips to watch one of Michigan ' s athletic teams play. Whether heading down to watch the football team in South Bend, traveling to East Lansing to watch the hockey team, cheering on the women ' s softball team against Indiana, or supporting any other athletic team, pre-game parties and rivalries made the trips espe- cially adventurous. A lot of students didn ' t mind the four or five hour road trip down 1-94 to Chicago, because the beautiful down- town area had a night life that many other cities just couldn ' t beat. Students stayed at a variety of hotels surrounding the downtown area and busied themselves shopping, eating, and bar hopping (if they were over twenty-one, or if they had an extra piece of plastic in their pocket). Some students even went to the theater or found tickets for the Oprah, Jenny Jones, or Jerry Springer talk shows. Regardless, the weekend flew by while in the " Windy City. " Ski trips up North or beach trips to San Padre Island, Daytona Beach, San Diego, or Hilton Head were popular during longer breaks. Students also enjoyed visiting New York City, Boston, Washington D.C. and other far-off places. Some found it exciting just to hop in a car and take off without any plans or destination. Regardless of where the students went, each place held its own excite- ment. Some students had too many responsibilities or a limited budget, so long trips were out of the question. But, closer attractions like Detroit and Canada remained popular for students. In downtown Detroit students could have dinner at the Renaissance Center or spend the night in Greek Town. Crossing the Canadian border, students flocked to the bars of Windsor or traveled to Toronto to see, among other things, The Phantom of the Opera. The ultimate relaxation, though, came from a trip back home to visit with the folks who paid the bills. It kept parents happy and gave students plenty of time to rest and unwind from some of the stresses that come with being a student at the University of Michigan. By Jejj ' ttotzfiausen Michigan Life 51 IAMI, FLORIDA It was a place filled with sunshine, beaches, and palm trees. But it was also filled with culture, a beautiful language and exotic foods. Miami was unlike any other city I had ever seen. Every corner smelled of the rich foods of Cuba. Natives of Miami, as well as natives of Cuba, had renamed it Little Havana. I am Cuban-American, and Miami was exactly how I pictured Cuba to be. I especially enjoyed Calle Ochs, where countless old Cu- ban men played dominoes for hours on end, and El Pub, a famous restaurant in Cuba. There, they served up over- flowing plates of Cuban bread, plantains, black beans and rice to all who ventured inside. Miami was a beautiful city, made so by people strong enough to survive as they did in theirown country. Spanish was the dominant language, and Cuban food was the norm. Ped- dlers could be heard and seen on every street corner crying out to sell their goods. During my trip, which was in the early weeks of February, the temperature in Miami re- mained around 75 degrees Fahrenheit. Back in Michigan, students were struggling with below zero temperatures. Without a doubt in my mind, I believe Miami was the best of Cuba.... Qomez w YORK CITY We missed our plane to New York. This could have been a bad thing, but as it turned out, we met Sergei Federov, Paul Coffey, and Brian Murray, who were on the next flight out. Friday Denise and I went to the Carnegie Deli, you know, the place where When Harry Met Sally was filmed. Anyway, we had this hilarious waiter, Oscar, who prided himself on being the rudest waiter around. Then, we walked around Time Square and ended up running into Boyz II Men and having our picture taken with them. Saturday, we went to the Hockey All-Star Game.

AMPA BAY The high- light of our trip was the Hall of Fame Bowl, which was the sole reason we went to Tampa Bay. It took us around twenty hours to drive there, but it was well worth the time to see the Wol- verines fare victorious. To start off the excitement, we went to the pre-game pep rally the night before the game. The cheerleaders called me down out of the stands to sound the cow bell for the " Go Blue! " cheer. It was a great feeling to see all those fans before me. But nothing tops an actual bowl game. We ' re the type of fans who never sit during a game, and the alumni behind us kept tell- ing us to sit down. I hate it when people go to games and then sit on their hands and don ' t cheer; but, anyway, we left those seats in search of some where we could stand without blocking the view of those behind us. As it turned out, we found better seats than our original ones. There was no one around us so we could jump, cheer, and dance as much as we wanted without upsetting anyone. And, if you can believe it, we were right behind the girls from Hooters Bar! But, that ' s another story all together ... did I say the game was the highlight of our trip?

" Almost every- one on campus could sympathize with such confusion during the third week of 1994. With temperatures drop- ping to -20 degrees Fahrenheit, the coldest day ever recorded in Detroit history, many people metamorphosized into Nanuks of the North. Even an occasional dog sled team could be seen around campus, replacing the multi- tudes of automobiles which refused to start. " I didn ' t start my car at all because I didn ' t think it would start, " said LSA senior Tomek Obertynski. But, the cold didn ' t stop him. " It ' s kind of refreshing, like a reset button to the New Year. At least we all know why the Russians wear those hats now, " he laughed. Dean Bachmann, also an LSA senior, shared a similar ethnic sentiment about the skin-biting temps: " I felt like I was in Stalingrad since everyone was running around with babushkas on their heads. " However, a little bone-chilling cold weather isn ' t enough to stop a determined person. Those who did brave it even stuck to their daily routines. " I ride my bike everyday approximately three miles, " said pharmaceutics graduate student Dave Miller. " I think I calculated the average wind chill to be about -60 degrees Fahrenheit when I was riding. Now that ' s cold. " Not everyone was as jovial as Miller about going out into the arctic tundra of southeast Michigan. " After eight years of living on the west coast, I ' m convinced my blood has thinned and I naturally rejected the cold weather, " said Matthew Aberbach, director of Camping Services of the Ann Arbor YMCA. " The worst part was the stages of the cold weather when every single day got colder and colder. I kept saying, ' It doesn ' t get any colder than this, or does it? ' " Aberbach, like most U-M students, had no choice but to walk everywhere, since he did not own a car. Although walking was great, walking in the bitter cold was not. " The only time I went into the cold was to go skiing. That was a conscious choice. When you live here, whether you work or you ' re a student, you have no choice, " he added. Unfortunately, this was also true of Ann Arbor ' s home- less and those below the poverty level. Aberbach said the YMCA received several calls regarding provisions for food and temporary emergency shelter. Because the YMCA was not a crisis center, the calls had to be for- warded to local area shelters. Andre Randall of Catholic Social Services testified to a definite increase of people seeking help, especially families often with five or more members. " They ' re not your typical families. They ' re just having a hard time; usually, they ' re in a transitional period in their lives. " Randall offered advice and helped advocate fo r people with problems. " I feel we ' ve been pretty successful thus far, " he said. Diane Cromwell of the Ann Arbor Shelter held to the open door policy, although families were a rarity because of a lack of facilities. " We do see about 100 people a day. This is an increase of about thirty. We see many of the same people every day, " she said. Maybe a stalled car or frozen pipes or walking a few minutes a day to class or to work wasn ' t worth complain- ing about in the great scheme of life. After all, students knew to expect a real " Michigan winter " every year when they decided to enroll as official U-M students; whether they looked forward to it or not was a matter of personal preference. By Etyse M. 54 Michigan Life Michigan Life 55 WHEN THE CATS AWAY, THE MICE WILL PLAY ollege: it could be compared to a mousehole where the inhabitants indulged their taste for mindless fun involving excessive cheese consumption, frenzied late-night mouse parties, and most important of all, NO CATS. Could a mere absence of authority actually cause this untamed savagery? Think back to the mice at the University of Michigan. Especially first-year students, abruptly cut off from the restrictive chains of Mom and Dad, suddenly found themselves en- counteringfreedom from curfews, freedom from nagging, and freedom from the shack- les of having to be good. In some cases, these mischievous mice didn ' t know what to do with this new- found freedom. Some approached the cheese cautiously, sampling it sparingly. LSA freshman Kim Palgut followed such ground rules: " You can still have fun, but you have to keep your priorities straight. " However others, knowing full well that the feline was far away, dove head-first into the forbidden delicacy, indulging until they vomited. Eric Paholski, an- other LSA freshman, firmly a dvocated this empowerment of freedom: " College is a good place for exploration. And if this exploration includes wild partying, so be it. " Yet there was a mousetrap in all of this fun and frolic: GRADES. These were what officially constituted one ' s exist- ence at the University, not the number of returnables in one ' s dorm closet, as some so believed. A Resident Advisor at South Quad who made an effort to keep her mice at bay stated, " I ' ve seen too many first-year students come in here and just go all-out crazy. But when they get their first test scores back, it ' s a smack in the face. Their grades are the reality check that tell them, ' Whoa, I better get serious. ' " Despite these warning signs, some stu- dents still managed to get themselves a one-way ticket out of here. They abused their recently discovered privileges to excess. Whether they drank a case of beer seven nights a week, got high under the guise of incense every hour of the day, or neglected studies to participate in the previous two, it was obvious that they were students majoring in Partying 101. As a result, the R A in- formed, " Most of them never make it to their sophomore year. " So how did they survive this initial mania of liberty? The young mice grew up. " You become more responsible, because there ' s no one here to tell you what to do, " said LSA sophomore Daniel Zarazua. They also began to realize the reason why they were at the University in the first place. " If you don ' t go to class and you miss something important, you ' re screwed. You make your bed, you sleep in it, " first-year student Pam Barr stated. So while in college, even though the par- ents may have been in another city or state, the students eventually learned that they must play in moderation. Because that is what university life was all about: managing time, studying hard, and taking a nibble out of the big cheese every now and then.

Embla- zoned across the fabric between the carefully sewn figure of a plaintive flower and a small heart was a single, unfamiliar name. Certainly to some- one else, though, this name must have been an unforgettable reminder of a dearly loved one. Now, however, the simple panel lay as yet another silent memorial to another life prematurely extin- guished by the relentless onslaught of the AIDS disease. AIDS, or Acquired Immune Deficiency Syn- drome, sadly emerged as an accepted reality of our times. Yet for many students at the University, AIDS represented only a remote, distant threat, far removed from their daily lives. The creation of AIDS Awareness Week in the Fall of 1993 prom- ised to help reverse that disturbing trend. Prompted by a perceived lack of accurate, relevant information provided to the campus community and Ann Arbor area, a small group of individuals from the University committed them- selves in the Spring of 1993, to organizing a series of events and presentations on AIDS HIV to coincide with the Midwest premiere of Quilt, A Musical Celebration, later that fall. The rather daunting task of coordinating such a broad range of events, the first of its scale ever to be assembled at the University, required the combined efforts of not only members of the University community, but various local and county organizations as well. The eventual product of their united determina- tion and energies was a week-long event that included such varied educational and artistic pro- grams as the NAMES Project, AIDS Memorial Quilt display, and workshops on safer sex and related prevention issues. By incorporating such diverse, interactive presentations into the program, the organizers sought to expand activities beyond merely bombarding participants with the often in- comprehensible statistics and figures on AIDS HIV. Although the numbers were undeniably alarming in their scope and enormity, organiz- ers believed that many students had simply grown numb to them. Instead, AIDS Aware- ness Week was intended to provoke a more personal, emotional response to AIDS HIV- related issues by facilitating dialogue within the campus community and prompting per- sonal reflection. According to University Productions Mar- keting Director Steve Hoffman, a driving force behind the organization of the event, the week proved a promising success. Though he would have preferred greater attendance at some functions, Hoffman said, " We hit all our goals. " Jim Toy, of LGMPO, another individual in- volved in the development of the event, agreed that the week helped to raise the general consciousness of AIDS HIV issues on campus noting the " positive spirit in which (partici- pants) posed questions and shared their concerns. " Among those students who participated in the various events during the week, the pre- vailing sentiment seemed to be equally optimistic. Thus, with the conclusion of this event, the challenge remained to direct this growing sentiment towards establishing future action on AIDS HIV-related issues. Michigan Life 59 I eparated from their J ethnic homeland, many Indian- American students at the University found a cultural void in their lives. Many festivals and holidays which they celebrated at home were left behind when they came to the University, and Indian customs and traditions were largely misunderstood. For this reason, the In- dian American Students Association, otherwise known as IASA, was formed. This organization allowed students with a common background to unite and cel- ebrate their culture and heritage. " lASA ' s existence is essential because Indian- Americans can get lost without it, " said Arun Suryaprasad, an LSA senior. " It gives us a sense of identity in this multi- university which is important because it gives all of us a feeling of individuality while becoming a part of the commu- nity. " One of the methods by which IASA sought to bring a sense of togetherness to the Indian- American student population was through the celebration of one of India ' s premier holidays: the annual festi- val of Diwali, the festival of lights. Diwali celebrated the upcoming new year and signified a time of happiness and hope for this auspicious time. Usually celebrated during the month of October to coincide with the lunar calendar, Diwali was a time for family and friends to sing, dance, and light fireworks to show their happiness and joy in life. Fourth-year LSA student 3IWALI SHOW SPECTACULAR Kulmeet Deng, the newsletter editor of IASA, felt that the festival of Diwali al- lowed students a chance to rejoice for all of their successes during the past year: " The show allows students a chance to get to- gether and celebrate in a traditional manner. We don ' t often have an opportunity to have fun and be traditional, so this event is a very special time for us all. " The annual show sponsored by IASA also gave University students a chance to get together and learn more about their heritage. " On one level, it is to express our cultural background representative of what IASA stands for. On another level, the Ind ian- American students are able to show- case all of their cultural pride and heritage to the University community, " said Vidya Krishnan, a third-year LSA student. She further added, " If the show is conducted properly, we can show how proud we are of our culture and what we could take from it to make the University feel more like home. " The show, which was performed Octo- ber 30, was organized by three University students: Neera Parikh, Shefali Pardanani, and Leela Kilaru. Parikh explained that the individual dances were practiced over a period of weeks in different donn lounges. The two weeks leading up to the show included intensified practices every night and two formal dress rehearsals. Indeed, the annual Diwali show intro- duced many outsiders to Indian culture while also allowing Indian-Americans to demonstrate their pride in the heritage of their homeland.

" 62 Michigan Life WDIV ANCHODWOMAN WOLVERINE ALUMNI rowing up in Detroit, Carmen Harlan, Detroit ' s WDIV anchorwoman and University of Michigan alumni, was first exposed to the UniversityofMichigan ' scampuslifethrough " little sibling " weekend, as her brother graduated from the University. She knew from these early experiences that " for some reason " she would find what she was looking for at Michigan. She enrolled in the Fall of 1971. Carmen lived in South Quad as a first-year student, and found the year overwhelming but not unmanageable. " I ' m the type of person who when thrown in a tough situation will either sink or swim. I usually swim. ...but, once I found my niche, my comfort level, I was able to go on and find classes of interest, establish a routine, and associate with my professors. Most importantly, though, I learned self-discipline, which took the most time. " Her overall roomate experience went very well, as all four of the girls who lived together in a quad began reuniting once a year a few years after they graduated. They had a particular room in the League that they reserved for " old time ' s sake. " Her decision to major in Speech, Radio and Television was actually recommended to Carmen in high school. She had always been one to constantly talk about a myriad of things, and it was suggested to her that the broadcasting field might be right up her alley. In the 1970 ' s the University had a separate program for Speech, Radio and Television and for Journalism. These departments later combined to form the more familiar Communication department. In addition to her Speech, Radio and Television major, Carmen minored in journalism. She learned a great deal of writing skills, and a great deal about producing before graduating in 1975. She produced a docu- mentary in one of her classes, which sparked her interest in her envisioned career path. She hoped to one day produce docu- mentaries, like Wild Kingdom, as a profession. She credited her experiences at the University with assisting in her present career. Throughout her education, she chose to dabble in a wide variety of subjects in order to gain knowledge of many subjects. She commented that it ' s almost impossible for students to understand how much they have learned until they have actually attempted to apply their knowledge. In her present occupation she draws upon her education to cover a wide variety of news. Even though Carmen planned to join the Peace Corps after graduation, she was immediately able to find employment. In the back of her mind, she still wished she would have taken a year to explore the Peace Corps instead of starting work right away. She told her children, Jessica and Joey, not to rush, but to take time " to give of themselves and try and make the world a better place. " Her job search included sending resumes all over the United States. She was prepared to move. Amazingly, an employment opportunity opened up in her home town of Detroit at a radio station. She was hired as a journalist to cover issues important to the listening audience. She was responsible for the establish- ment of the radio ' s news department. In 1978 Carmen left the radio for television. Because many people desired to get involved in television, Carmen felt finding a job would be nearly impossible; however, after one or two interviews, she was hired. There were many advantages to the news anchorwoman position, according to Carmen. " There ' s not another job like it, " she commented, " I have the opportunity to meet people who shape ideas locally, and those who make history at a local or national level. It ' s like being there to experience history and ' having a front row seat ' . " Carmen admitted, however, there were disadvantages as well: " It ' s hard to have a life. " She handled this by making sure certain times were set aside just for the family, or for herself. Carmen mentioned she would consider another position within the broadcasting field if one were to open up. She said her future plans might also include writing. Aside from herself, Carmen ' s true hopes for the future were for Detroit ' s city to come back. She planned to do whatever she could to help out and hoped it not a goal she held alone. " (Having the city well again) would make the picture complete. " by l Michigan Life 63 MAQTIN LUTHEQ KING BEMEMBEQED his holiday has become an op- portunity not only to honor Martin Luther King but a mo- ment to take time to reflect on his mission and the progress that we have made in achieving his vision, " read Omar Wattles, a legislative aide for Congressman William Ford, at the College of Engineering Keynote Speech on MLK Day. " His struggle was to uphold the principles for which this nation declared its indepen- dence, and for which it was forged anew some four score years later. " Wattles read Ford ' s prepared speech while Ford was stuck in Washington D.C. due to poor weather conditions. The speech chronicled Ford ' s efforts to establish King ' s birthday as a national holiday, first in 1968, then in 1981. He was finally successful in 1983. " I believed that the designation of Dr. King ' s birthday as a federal holiday was long overdue. It would be a testimonial to his monumental contributions to social, political, and moral progress, toward a nation in which, as Dr. King said, people would be judged not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character, " read Wattles. In the speech, titled " The King Legacy for Educa- tional Opportunity, " Ford recognized the progress made in civil rights and education since 1968. He countered that assertion, though, when addressing the engineer- ing discipline in particular. " I am told, however, that the fields in which you are now working, engineering, and the hard sciences and mathematics, still lack repre- sentative numbers of women and minorities, " read Wattles. Ford proposed that the solution to this problem was education and stressed the role that President Clinton ' s National Service Act would play in educational progress. " The program we wrote will put thousands of idealistic young Americans perhaps some of you will be among them on the street, working in established, successful community programs such as tutoring school children, running recycling programs, aiding homebound indi- viduals, and helping to solve many other problems that simply are not being addressed, " read Wattles. Students seemed to appreciate the message of the speech, even though Congressman Ford could not attend. " It was hard to understand at first because we were hearing through someone rather than directly from someone, " said Kyle Chenet, a senior in Mechanical Engineering. " It made me feel good, though, to hear that Congressman Ford was concerned with the issues of engineering and education and how they relate to the legacy of Martin Luther King. By creating those ties, Ford made us feel as though we were more than just students in a classroom. " Other students were skeptical of the National Ser- vice plan. " It ' s hard for me to get into the idea, to believe that the National Service Program will be effective. It looks good on paper, but will it work? " asked Lesley Camblin, a senior in Aerospace Engineer- ing and member of the College of Engineering MLK Day Committee. Organizers were pleased with the turnout for the event. " It was gratifying to see the large student turn- out for Congressman Ford ' s speech, " said Material Science Engineering Professor Wayne Jones, chair of the College of Engineering MLK Day Committee. " I was intrigued to observe the interest of students in the National Service Act as a means to finance their education. That ' s something that we need to further consider here at Michigan. " fyjimtiartnett 64 Michigan Life Michigan Life 65 Little boy in his village Masai Mara, Kenya 66 Photo Essay I didn ' t know about Chris Webber ' s now infamous time-out until about two weeks after it was called. I also missed perhaps the last Rose Bowl victory for many years and yet another trip to the NCAA Hockey Final Four. But it really doesn ' t matter all that much, be- cause during that time I was half a world away. I think more important than what I missed was what I saw. During the 1993 Basketball Final Four, I was in East Africa traveling with a friend. We had just finished a week-long safari, and were relaxing on one of the most beautiful beaches I ' ve ever seen (Lamu, Kenya 14 miles of unobstructed Indian Ocean beach just south of the Somali bor- der). In fact just before we asked a man we met in Lamu if he knew who won the tournament, he asked us if it was true that people had been to the moon. In other words, he did not know about the now legendary time-out. Neither did we for an- other two weeks; but to be honest, it didn ' t really matter because long after Webber has his NBA champi- onship rings I will remember where I was during the ' 93 Final Four.

California Catastrophe. - FLOODS Nature unleashed her full fury upon the Midwest in the summer of 1993. Floods ravaged the heartland of the country, ruining crops, destroying houses, and killing 26 people. The cause of this deluge of rain was five weeks of high pressure which remained in the East. This pumped moist Gulf air into the Midwest, where it dumped rain, saturated the earth, and sent rivers over their banks. Over 1 7,000 square miles of land were flooded. Cities up and down the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers braced themselves for enormous wave crests as the rain continued to fall. Each city had flood levees which engineers considered were high enough to withstand floods so catastrophic that they occurred only once every five centuries. However in 1993, in almost all the river cities, the water levels surpassed these levees. The Army Core of Engineers had at their disposal round-the-clock weather surveillance, their own satellite, and gauges to measure every drop of water that hit the Midwest. However, they could do little more than watch helplessly as the floods came. They gave warnings to towns and evacuated them. Thousands of people poured in from all over the country trying 76 Retrospect to protect these towns. The volunteers filled more than 26.5 million sandbags, and created more than 7,000 miles of levees. In many towns this effort could not stop the effects of nature, but in some cases it helped. In Hannibal, Missouri, residents were able to protect the home and museum of Mark Twain. In most towns, however, the effects were catastrophic. Entire fields of crops became nothing more than lakes. Illinois lost $1.5 billion worth of soybeans, and Iowa lost $1 billion of corn. Each night the evening news brought this tragedy into homes around the country. In West Alton, Illinois, a town that was completely ruined, Coast Guard boats patrolled the streets assisting anyone in need of aid. Residents of Des Moines, Iowa could not drink the town ' s contaminated water for over a month. Relief came very rapidly to the hardest- hit areas. President Clinton visited the region three times, and promised $2.5 billion in immediate aid. The Salvation Army and Red Cross set up shelters for the homeless keeping them fed and dry. Food, water, and other help poured in from around the country. As the floods began to recede, people began to return. They salvaged what they could, and rebuilt on the very same spots that days earlier had been submerged under several feet of water. They hoped that the magnitude of the floods of 1993 would not be repeated for at least another five hundred years. COMMENCEMENT Over 5 1 ,000 people attended gradu- ation in 1993. The 5,000 graduates listened as Hillary Clinton delivered the commence- ment address. The ceremony went smoothly, with only a few minor objections to Ms. Clinton. Several airplanes circled the sta- dium with banners such as: " Impeach Hillary, " " College For the Unborn Too, " and " Equal Rights For Unborn First Ladies. " Despite this, university officials were very pleased with the behavior of the crowd and the gradu- ates. Ms. Clinton addressed the ills of society that the graduates would be facing.

She promoted her husband ' s na- tional service plan, whereby students re- ceived tuition assistance in return for a year of community service. She credited President Kennedy with sowing the seeds for national service by announcing his plan for the peace corps in a 1960 speech at the University. She spoke of being the com- mencement speaker at her own gradua- tion from Wellesley College in 1969. She conceded that her speech then was ideal- istic, and short on political understand- ing. She said however, " But 1 am glad I felt like that when I was 2 1 , and I have always tried to keep those feelings with me. 1 want to be idealistic. I want to care about the world. I want to be connected to toher people, and I hope that you will as well. " Clinton then received a long standing ovation, before departing. She took with her a honorary doctorate from the university, which was indicated by the black graduation gown she wore with a purple doctoral hood attached. Following the ceremony, Clinton departed right away. She had wanted to attend a reception at the Museum of Art afterwards, however traffic and her time schedule would not allow this. ADOPTION One of the most emotional stories of the year came to a sad conclusion in July. Ann Arbor residents Jan and Roberta DeBoer lost their custody battle to keep their adopted daughter Jessica. The Michi- gan Supreme Court ruled that Jessica must be turned over to her biological parents, Dan and Cara Schmidt, by August 2. Jessica was born on February 8, 1991, and spent the bulk of her life in- volved in a two and a half year judicial nightmare which tugged on the heartstrings of Jessica, the four loving parents, and an entire country which watched the ongoing events. Jessica was given up for adoption by Clara Clausen and Scott Seefeldt, the sup- posed father, to t he DeBoers. However, a week following the transfer, Cara named Dan Schmidt as the actual biological father and announced that they had second thoughts. They asked Jessica to be re- turned to Iowa. The DeBoers refused, and sought the legal advice of Suellyn Scarneccia of the University of Michigan Law School ' s legal clinic. Six months later, after genetic tests confirmed Dan as the actual father, the adoption proceeding was voided by an Iowa court two days before Christmas 1 99 1 . Rather than turn Jessica over, the DeBoers appealed and won custody while the appeal remained in the court system. The Iowa Supreme Court finally reached a decision and argued that the DeBoers were the bet- ter suited to be Jessica ' s parents but that Dan ' s legal rights came before the baby ' s. 78 Retrospect JULY PRESIDENT CLINTON PROPOSED HIS CONTROVERSIAL DON ' T ASK DON ' T TELL POLICY FOR HOMOSEXUALS IN THE MILITARY.

It was here, in Michigan Circuit Court that the DeBoers finally won their first decision. The judge ruled that it would be harmful to remove the baby from the only parents she had ever known at this late point in time. He told the Schmidts they would be heroes to give up for the sake of the child, but they refused and the fight went on. Then in spring 1993, a Michigan Appeals Court said the lower Michigan court had no jurisdiction to rule over the Iowa verdict. In July, the Michigan Su- preme Court upheld the decision and or- dered Jessica to be returned to Iowa by the end of the month. In a last ditch effort, the case went before the Supreme Court at the end of July. The judges voted 6-2 to uphold the verdict of the Michigan Supreme Court, and send Jessica back to Iowa. Tearful good-byes were said when the deadline neared. Jessica lost the only family she had known, but went to a family that was just as loving. She arrived with the new name of Anna Lee Jacqueline Clausen Schmidt to her new home in Blairstown, Iowa. 80 Retrospect PEACE IN THE MIDDLE EAST For the first time since the cre- ation of the Israeli state in 1948, Arabs and Israelis were able to set aside their differ- ences and begin the peace process. Follow- ing months of sporadic peace talks entail- ing 17 meetings with the Palestine Libera- tion Organization, PLO, moderated by through the United States, a breakthrough finally occurred. Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and PLO Chairman Yassir Arafat agreed on a plan that would con- clude the peace talks. A deal was struck so quickly that Palestinian and Israeli nego- tiators, assembled in Washington for the latest round of peace talks, had to search newspapers for details of the accord. The deal did not please everyone. Many PLO members quickly denounced the deal for ending a 29-year war against Israel. In Israel, there was fear over allowing the future to be determined by a quarrelsome PLO. Despite its critics, the deal was a monumental step forward in bringing peace to the Middle East, a region wracked by violence for over half a century. By signing the agreement, Israel agreed to withdraw from the Gaza Strip and to redeploy its troops away from Arab population centers in the West Bank. Following the with- drawal, Palestinians would be allowed to collect taxes and create their own schools, courts, hospitals, and a police force. Later, elections would be held in those territories. In exchange the Palestinians agreed to defer their goal for an independent state, their desire for a capital in East Jerusalem, and their demand that hundreds of thou- sands Palestinian refugees be allowed to return. Even though a general framework had been established, there remained many details to be ironed out. There were many points that were vague, and interpreted differently by each side. Palestinians saw the plan as the first step towards an inde- pendent state in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, but Israelis said the plan left the prospect of eventual territorial com- promise. Both sides also faced a tough chore in selling the plan to their top con- stituents. Arafat faced the difficult task of reuniting his splintered group, the PLO, which had been ravaged by infighting for several years. He also had to deal with terrorist groups and Islamic fundamental- ists which called the deal with Israel a sellout. Both groups vowed to battle the plan through violent attacks and terrorism. Arafat also had to attempt to win other Arab states to his side. Only Egypt voiced support for the deal; Lebanon, Jordan, and Syria all were critical of the deal. Arafat was counting on United States economic and political pull to win this support. De- spite all of these groups in opposition, Arafat went ahead with the deal. His primary motivator was his awareness that the PLO was a bankrupt organization that was losing its political clout as the Palestinian rep re- sentative to other more radical groups. The PLO used to spend $120 million a year in the occupied territories. In 1992, it spent $45 million. It had lost much of its finan- cial support from other Arab countries for its support of Iraq during the Gulf War. H H SEPTEMBER A COMPREHENSIVE ARAB-ISRAELI PEACE ACCORD WAS AGREED UPON.

In Israel, many were opposed to the agreement. Polls showed opposition running at 40% a week following the agree- ment. Many felt that Israel should never have begun to talk peace with Arafat, whose very name was associated with terrorism and violence against the Jewish state. The entire country remai ns opposed to a Pales- tinian state or cedeing any control of Jerusa- lem to the Palestinians. Many feel that the peace deal would begin to pull the country in that direction. The Israeli military was not directly opposed to the deal, however they were angry that Rabin did not consult with them at all prior to the agreement. Their main concern was for the 100,000 settlers living in the territories after the Israeli troops redeployed. Also, they won- dered how Israeli troops could help prevent terrorist attacks if their troops could not enter Arab towns. The haggling over details and the continued opposition would continue, how- ever the fundamnetal framework for peace had been established. This peace would have been considered unthinkable several years ago. Even until last yeat, most con- 82 Retrospect sidered an agreement unlikely. However, many feel that the deal would eventually lead to peace in the Middle East, a concept that has been foreign until now. SOMALIA When President Clinton took office he inherited several problems that had also plagued former President Bush. One problem was the famine relief effort in Somalia. Following a year of clan warfare and inefficient relief distribution, President Bush authorized 30,000 U.S. troops to restore order and ensure famine relief in an operation called Just Cause. The famine relief was achieved, but stopping the civil warfare and bringing peace to the country was far more difficult. During the summer, hostilities between the clans subsided, and many American troops were called home. However, as fall approached, hostilities erupted again. The primary cause of the new warfare was thought to be the Hawiye clan and their warlord leader, Mohammed Farah Aidid. Aidid sought to destroy the shaky provisional government created by the other clans and place himself in power. As a result of Aidid ' s attacks, United Nations Secretary General Boutros Boutros Ghali changed the objective from famine relief to a hunt for the troublesome warlord. He insisted that the U.S. change its policy also. The U.S. tried to de-emphasize the search for Aidid and to emphasize a peaceful political process to allow U.S. troops to withdraw. This fact though was never communicated to U.S. troops in Somalia who continued their search and seizure operations. Due to the divergence of leadership and policy, tactical and operational decisions were made not from the leadership above, but from the ground. The U.S. commander in Somalia, Major General Thomas Montgomery, asked fora buildup ofstronger H H OCTOBER INDIA WAS HIT BY ITS WORST EARTHQUAKE IN 50 YEARS. THE QUAKE WAS CENTERED IN THE EASTERN PART OF THE STATE OF MAHARASTRA. OVER 20,000 PEOPLE DIED WHEN THE EARTHQUAKE STRUCK AT THREE IN THE MORNING. MOST OF THE DEATHS WERE FROM PEOPLE BURIED IN RUBBLE WHILE THEY SLEPT FOR 14 DAYS RUSSIAN CONSERVATIVES REMAINED BARRICADED IN THE PARLIAMENT BUILDING.

HOWEVER THE MILITARY WAS QUICK TO BACK YELTSIN AND SURROUNDED THE BUILDING UNTIL THE CONSERVATIVES SURRENDERED AFTER A FAILED ATTEMPT TO CAPTURE SOMALI WARLORD MOHAMMED FARAH AIDID, PRESIDENT CLINTON ANNOUNCED THE WITHDRAWAL OF U.S. TROOPS.

The Clinton administration rejected the request in order to speed up U.S. withdrawal and eliminate UN reliance on U.S. troops. The U.S. troops continued their hunt for Aidid without further backup. The operation continued until a remote control bomb killed four American soldiers in August. As a result of this attack, a quick reaction force was sent to provide road security, escort convoys, and conduct weapons sweeps. In October, an elite Army Ranger team was called to attack a suspected hide- out of Aidid. The Rangers attacked, but were quickly surrounded and trapped by Aidid ' s men. In the end 1 5 Rangers were killed, 77 wounded, and one was captured. The captured Ranger, Michael Durrant, was tortured and humiliated on video before being released. The dead Rangers were strung up, and paraded through the streets of Mogadishu before cheering crowds. Following this debacle, Clinton quickly announced that the number of troops in Somalia would be doubled to over 25,000. However, he also set a deadline of March 3 1 for the withdrawal of all troops. The extra troops were not expected to bring order or capture Aidid; their mission was to expedite a safe retreat for the men already there. Despite the failed objectives, the mission served notice that United States foreign policy was set not only by economic and political events, but also by the need for humanitarian assistance. NAFTA In the biggest test of his presi- dency, President Clinton pulled out all the stops in an attempt to pass the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Know ing how narrow the vote would he, Clinton used his power to win votes. He cut last minute deals, made ceremonial appearances, and issued threats in order to garner support. Clinton at- tempted to gather support from both sides of the political spectrum. Since the agree- ment was primarily a Republican package, assembled under former president Bush ' s leadership, Clinton ' s main objective was to drum up support within his own party. Just days before the vote however, it was clear that many Democrats were not in support of the agreement. The agreement would create a region of free trade between Canada and Mexico. This prospect had many labor proponents scared about the safety of American jobs. They cited cheap labor in Mexico as a source ot great alarm. Many politicians opposed to NAFTA were from Midwestern industrial states which stood to lose many jobs as a result. The politi- cians feared for their own jobs as well as their constituents ' jobs if the treaty passed. At the head of the Anti-NAFTA forces was Ross Perot. In a national presidential debate he described the flow of jobs to Mexico as, " a giant sucking sound. " On the Larry King Show, Perot debated about H NO IN CANADIAN ELECTIONS, THE THREE LARGEST PARTIES WERE ALL CRUSHED.

The House vote finally took place under the scrutiny of the entire nation. By a narrow margin, NAFTA was passed 234- 200. After the vote came the tough chore of healing the wounds that had been cre- ated over the debate. 156 of 258 Demo- crats opposed Clinton on NAFTA. Many were still sore over the loss. Ohio Demo- crat, Marcy Kaptur, pointed out that Clinton was out of synch with the party. She said, " I think he ' s the candidate of Wall Street, not Main Street. " Clinton had to hurry and heal the wounds because soon after the NAFTA vote came votes about his health care and welfare reform packages. Without Republican support of either, both required as much partisian support as possible. HELL ON EARTH California used to be considered a veritable Heaven on Earth. People would flock to the Promised Land with their hopes and dreams. However, recent history treated residents of this paradise more like residents of Hell. The past few years saw the state hit by riots, fires, gangs, guns, smog, drought, and earthquakes. The last of these calamities devastated Southern Cali- fornia early on a January morning. The earthquake ' s epicenter was focused on Northridge, a suburb just North of Los Angles. The earthquake measured 6.6 on the Richter Scale. Early estimates counted 50 dead, 6,000 injured, and 20,000 homeless. The numbers though, did not express the terror experienced by residents of this region, who continued to wait for the cataclysmic " big one " feared by all. The Great Quake of ' 94 only added to the list of problems for the region. Governor Pete Wilson esti- mated that the damage could reach $30 billion, making it the most costly disaster in history. The damage could not have come at a worse time for a region already hurt by an economic recession. Forecasts called for a return to positive job growth by the end of 1 994, but as a result of the quake, experts predicted that the region could lose 40, 000 jobs. Economic forecasts for 1994, revised after the earthquake, predicted that the region ' s economy would shrink by more than 10% this year. The earthquake destroyed many people ' s homes, leaving them among the city ' s homeless. City parks quickly became refugee shantytowns, as tents sprung up. Police estimated that 13,000 people were living in the parks. Police reacted quickly to the situation, imposing a night curfew and maintaining order during the ordeal and the chaos afterwards. They piled up the overtime as they worked 12-hour shifts, even though they had not received the extra cash earned during the riots 2 years before. Unlike the riots however, the earth- quake encouraged a cooperative effort. There were only 1 28 arrests in the first 48 hours, one ninth the normal rate. Food and prayers were shared by all in the ensuing aftershocks which continued to jolt the area. President Clinton surveyed the damage several days following the quake during a brief visit. He immediately prom- ised $45 million to clean debris from the highways, $95 million for small-business loans, $100 million to repair local roads and other facilities, and $100 million to pay the rent of displaced low-income fami- lies. i Retrospect H H DECEMBER NORTH KOREA ' S REFUSAL TO ALLOW INTERNATIONAL INSPECTIONS OF NUCLEAR FACILITIES PROMPTED PRESIDENT CLINTON TO MEET WITH SECRETARY OF DEFENSE, LES ASPIN, AND JOINT CHIEFS OF STAFF, JOHN SHALIKASHVILI.

Tensions increas ed as aftershocks continued to be felt for days and weeks. Closed off roads and bottleneck traffic j ams added to the tension. However badly the region was battered, however, one could not deny the assets of Southern California. On the day of the earthquake, while the rest of the country froze, Los Angles re- mained a balmy 80 degrees. So despite the onslaught of catastrophes that ravaged the state over the past few years, a majority of people stayed and attempted to rebuild yet again. Also, the thousands that flocked to the state every day continued to pour in with dreams and wishes that they expected the Golden State to fulfill. MICHAEL JACKSON One of America ' s biggest pop icons was put through an arduous ordeal, when a 13 year-old child accused Michael Jackson of molesting him. The news was splashed across newspapers and tabloids around the world when the Los Angeles Police De- partment began to investigate the charges. The boy, his half sister, and his mother traveled to Monte Carlo and Disney World with Jackson, where, the boy claimed, Jack- son slept with him. The boy told his thera- pist that in Monaco, Jackson lured the boy into a bathtub and performed oral sex on him, and then told him that he would be sent to juvenile hall if their relationship was revealed. Over the ensuing months, Jack- son and his image both suffered a tremen- dous loss of prestige. He was dropped by Pepsi as a spokesman for their products, and then was sued for more than $20 mil- lion in a fraud and breach-of-contract suit filed when he canceled his world tour amidst the allegations. Many of his friends and family also bailed out on Jackson. Sister LaToya hit the talk show circuit yet again, this time to throw mud at her superstar brother. She said that their mother, Katherine, had called Michael a " damn faggot " even as Katherine was on TV de- fending him. It seemed as though most of Jackson ' s friends were on vacation during the controversy, as none lent their public support. Only Elizabeth Taylor continued to proclaim her friend ' s innocence through- out the ordeal. As the winter dragged on, more claims came to light. Jackson ' s former maid, Blanca Francia said that the star had slept and showered with little boys, and may have abused these children. She said that Jackson had given them the nickname " Rubba, " which meant that he rubbed the boys against his genitals. In return for making these allegations on the tabloid TV show Hard Copy, she earned a reported five-figure payment. Even Brett Barnes, an 1 1 -year-old Australian boy who spoke in Jackson ' s defense, said that the star had shared a bed with him. In Oprah Winfrey ' s interview with Jackson the pre- vious year, Jackson said that the thing he missed most about his own childhood was " slumber parties. " After months of being the head- line on countless tabloids, hear ing con- stant rumors about the entire controversy, and being subjected to a strip search that he called " the most humiliating ordeal of my life, " Jackson settled out of court with the 13-year-old. Lawyers refused to discuss the details of the settlement, but sources said that the amount fell between $10 and $20 million in addition to a trust fund that was also set up. Many questions were raised by the settlement. Why did Jackson take so long to settle? Many blame some of Jackson ' s lawyers and private investigators who feared a settlement would induce oth- ers to come forward with false claims in the hope of reaching a similar settlement. Despite the settlement, L.A. County District Attorney ' s Office contin- ued with its criminal investigation of Jack- son. The settlement was expected to have the silence the 13 year-old, which meant that the D.A. ' s office had lost its star wit- ness.

PICTURES FROM THE TELESCOPE THAT HAD BEEN FOGGY AND BLURRY BECAME CLEAR AND PRECISE . H o H Retrospect 89 Even though Jackson appeared to aided his cause by the settlement, he lost in the court of public opinion. Because of the settle- ment, it was unlikely that the truth would ever be completely known. Which meant though Jackson could not called guilty, he also did not clear his name of wrong doing. Jackson lawyer, Howard Weitzman said the entire controversy had, " taken an icon of our lifetime and destroyed him. " Nancy arrived as the favorite, and seemed to be at her best on the ice. However, on January 6 her dreams of winning a gold, or even of competing in the Olympics were put in to serious jeopardy when she was struck on the knee by an assailant. TV cameras captured her anguish and pain as she cried out, " Why me? Why anyone? Why? " after the attack. The attack soon made headlines around the world. Many theories about the attack circulated. Some though it was another obsessed fan, like the one who attacked tennis star, Monica Seles. Another theory was that it was a random act of violence, fitting the crime-ridden city stereotype of Detroit. No matter how shocking these rumors may have seemed, the truth proved to be far more heinous. As the F.B.I, and police pieced together events, evidence slowly materialized that linked associates of Nancy ' s biggest American skating rival, Tonya Harding, to the attack. The piece that broke open the case was the evidence provided by private investigator, Gary Crowe. He produced a tape that had been given to him by a student in a course that he taught at a local college. The tape implicated Tonya ' s ex-husband, Jeff Gillooly; her body guard, Shawn Eckardt; Derrick Smith and Shane Stant, two thugs hired to stalk Kerrigan. Gillooly, whom she still lived with prior to the attack, was questioned by the F.B.I, and later pleaded guilty to racketeering charges in exchange for his testimony. In his testimony, Gillooly asserted that Harding was completely aware of what was to take place, and that she helped coordinate it. Harding refused to admit to any part in the crime, but she later pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice and received a fine and three years probation. In Lillehammer, the two skaters remained under the close scrutiny of the press as they skated in the Olympics. However neither one could pull off a gold medal victory, despite a flawless program by Kerrigan. Ukraine ' s Oksana Baiul won the gold, narrowly defeating silver medalist Kerrigan. Harding was not able to overcome a rough start and finished out of medal contention. It was a shame that the performances of these two skaters, as well as the other Olympic athletes, had to be overshadowed by the intrigue and mystery surrounding the attack on Nancy Kerrigan. Stories By: John Whelan ICE ESCAPADES Nancy Kerrigan dreamt of winning a gold medal in the Olympics since she was a child. In the 1 992 Olympics she came close to realizing this dream, finishing a close third. She came home with the bronze medal and an even greater determination to win a gold medal at the 1994 games. In January 1 994, she along with all U.S women skaters, flocked to Detroit in order to compete for one of two spots on the team. 90 Retrospect H FEBRUARY PRESIDENT CLINTON ENDED THE 19 YEAR ECONOMIC EMBARGO AGAINST VIETNAM.

" Working 9 to 5 " for the University The University has long been recognized as one of the most prestigious academic institutions in the United States, as well as the world. However, as the University forged into the twenty-first century, the administration found itself facing many new and challenging hurdles that had not surfaced in the past. Issues such as the establishment of a diverse student body and the extent of bureaucracy at the University level concerned not only the administration, but the students as well. ADMINISTRATION The ethnicity and male-female ratios composition of the student body was a primary concern of the administra- tion. Its goal was to bring greater diversity to the campus by instituting measures which would ease the transitions of minority students into the University environment. To achieve this end, the administration implemented the Michigan Mandate, a comprehensive study on how to make the institution more accessible to minorities. President James Duderstadt explained the purpose of the proposal: " The Michigan Mandate is the University ' s strategic plan for linking academic excellence with social diversity. We want to transform the University to reflect the growing diversity that we see in America. " This attempt to instill the University with a sense of diversity was a part of the administration ' s commitment to provide " an uncommon education to the common man " . In this manner, the University officials hoped to grant the same education for all people of any color, race, and gender. Another concern of many University members was the seemingly large bureaucracy which administered the school. However, this issue was predominantly student-founded instead of being a worry of the administration. Many students believed that much of the University ' s hierarchy was unnecessary and contributed to waste and ineffiency. LS A senior Arun Suryaprasad summed up the feelings of many students: " Sometimes I feel as if I j ust am not getting what I paid for. I think a lot of that is due to the fact that much of the administration seems to be preoccupied with paper-shuffling rather than implementing the changes that should be occurring. " However, this particular student concern was dismissed by the administration as illogical. Duderstadt pointed out that the University was one of the most lightly administered academic institutions in the country when compared to other schools. Furthermore, Duderstadt indicated that the size of both the University and the administration could benefit the students. " The students must reach out and grasp all that this university has to offer. There lies the strength of this institution. " The President summed up the goals of the administration for the future as he stated, " I think that the character of the University can be put into five words: quality, size, diversity, excellence, and excitement. These must be our guiding principles for the future.

Science is a subj ect which has traditionally been ignored in elementary schools, mainly because teachers do not place enough confidence in their knowledge of the subject. Thus, the idea that science is " too difficult " begins at an early age. The School of Education at the University attempted to change that perception with its program, Elementary Science Cohort. According to Dr. Joseph Krajcik, the Director of the Cohort, the program was driven by the need to improve the teaching of science at the elementary school level. It was available to all students enrolled in the SCIENCE COHORT elementary certification program, regardless of their major. Senior Carla Sheak, who joined the Cohort as a non - science major, said, " science always scared me. I wanted to learn to teach science in a way that would make it interesting and appealing to students. " Science Cohorters enrolled in chemistry, physics, and science methods classes that integrated science content with actual teaching methods. The classes stressed hands-on experience and included labs and projects in which students utilized the latest technology. For example, last year ' s Cohorters designed an experiment using sound detectors to identify the relative intensities of different sounds. Students took the sound detectors with them to elementary school classrooms, lectures, restaurants, and bars to compare the noise levels at each of the locations. Missy Carson, a senior in the program, felt that working with the sound detectors was an enjoyable learning experience that could easily be used in any elementary classroom. Students participated in a year-long practicum experience at local elementary schools. This practicum was unique in the sense that Cohorters began assuming some responsibilities in the classroom right away, thus gaining valuable teaching experience. Additionally, students in the Cohort created their own 15-day science units dealing with topics such as sound, light, rocks, and minerals. They then taught their unit in actual elementary classrooms. According to Dr. Krajcik, this closely intgrated teacher preparation program provided students with specialized preparation in science as well as considerable experience with students in the classrooms. Science was stressed in the program, but it was not the only focus. The Cohort attempted to give students a broad education, so they would be prepared to enter the classroom with a wide range of experiences. Like the rest of the School of Education, the students took courses in math, reading, psychology, multi-cultural education, art, and music in order to instruct these teaching methods to future teachers. Many students felt that this method was the strength of this program and agreed with Jennifer Murphy when she said, " I am fortunate to have had this extra background in the sciences, but also feel that teachers must be well-rounded in all areas of study to be truly effective. " 96 Academics By Sarah A. Dennis i Ls a Science Cohorter, Leonard Bromund explains the principles of sound propagation to his inquisitive young disciples. Steve Qoldstein VJcience Cohorters utilized computer technology in their search for teaching excellence. -Steve Qoldstein Academics 97 Students Find More Than " Money " at the Business School " All of a sudden, you are thrown together with people you don ' t know and are forced to work together as a team, " said Business School senior Chris Curtis. Those who were qualified enough to be admitted to the Business School for their junior and senior years found themselves randomly assigned to one of six sections with forty-five students. These individuals were then expected to learn the fundamentals of the business world together over the next two years. THE BUSINESS SCHOOL This system greatly enhanced the Business School atmosphere since the students were given an opportunity to get to know one another, academically and personally. By assigning students to such sections, the administration facilitated bonding between peers and encouraged the formation of close friendships. Since many of the incoming students had spent their first two years in the LSA program at the University, the Business School environment was a welcome change. " By getting to know the people in your section, you feel more comfortable working on group projects, " said senior Sarah Endline. This aspect of the program was crucial since the Business School classes often required individuals to work in groups and solve problems through teamwork and cooperation. Demonstrating their commitment to the section policy and the advantages that it confered upon students, administrators completed an overhaul of its orientation program for incoming students. First-year students were taken to recreational areas outside Ann Arbor where they were given a chance to meet and work with others in the section before classes began. This intensive orientation program was designed as a team-cooperation exercise which would teach students the importance of working effectively as a team. The program was another method by which the Business School administration hoped to assist students in making long-lasting friendships with other students in the section. Although not all students in the Business School were supportive of the structured class schedule, there was widespread agreement that the opportunity of getting to know the forty-five students in a section over two years allowed for budding friendships and cooperative gestures. This overall atmosphere complemented the competitive tone of the Business School as it allowed the Bachelor of Business Administration program to flourish into one of the most prestigious programs in the country.

Steve Qoldstein -- II I -t S A juniors Stephanie Schanta and Ela Jastrzebski worked together to understand the subject matter. -Steve Qoldstein Something " Always On The Minds " Of Honors Students They were everywhere. You might not have known it, but chances are that you knew one of them. Who were they? They were the 1,500 of 16,000 LS A students who were involved in the Honors Program. A selective subdivision of the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts, the Honors Program fostered the development of critical thinking and learning that culminated in a research project or thesis in a student ' s senior year. Admission to the lower-level program was by invitation, although particularly motivated individuals could also seek admit- HONORS PROGRAM tance. During the first two years of undergraduate studies, students typically took two Honors classes per semester and were required to complete a two-semester sequence in either Classical Civilizations or Great Books while maintaining a minimum 3.25 grade point average. Enrollment in a special sophomore seminar was also encouraged. Upon completion of these recommended courses, some students were eligible for the Sophomore Honors Award. The junior-senior honors program, while not as structured as the underclass division, was also academically intensive. Admission to the program was achieved through the student ' s concentration department; once the department accepted the student for honors, the student was automatically an Honors Program student. Specific requirements for graduation varied by department and ranged from the election of specific departmental honors courses to research-oriented seminars. The focus of the upper- level Honors Program was the researching and writing of a thesis, a fifty to sixty page paper that was reviewed by an Honors committee. The writing of the thesis was a benefit when applying to graduate, business, law, or medical school because it showed that the applicant had successfully completed a major project that was similar to work encountered in graduate and professional schooling. Although the program was rigorous and academically challenging, students found the rewards worthwhile. Jim Alford, a senior in Honors who was writing a thesis in Biology, said, " It ' s really good. Honors research helps you prepare for graduate school and puts you toward your possible research field. " Alford, who was pursuing a joint M.D. Ph.D program upon graduation, believed that being able to research his thesis on genetics and biochemistry at the U-M Medical Center also made him a better candidate for medical school. The challenges of the Honors Program not only served to focus students, but also prepared them for future studies. According to the University, the Honors Program was nationally recognized as a strong thesis-oriented program that gave its undergraduate students an edge over other students. 100 Academics By Heather Tessler ounselor interaction with students helped honors students deal with problems in their academic lives.

" UROP Students Say Yes For many young students, starting college was a difficult and challenging experience. Many students found themselves overwhelmed by the academic work and intimidated by large lectures taught by professors with whom they had little personal contact. In an effort to ease this transition, the University developed the Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program, known as UROP. UROP was a unique program which offered first and second-year students an opportunity to become involved UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH OPPORTUNITY PROGRAM in the University by assisting a faculty member on a research project. Program Manager Sandra Gregerman explained that UROP ' s goal was to actively engage new students in the University and academic life outside of the classroom. " UROP is an opportunity for new students to get to know faculty and develop skills they can use in their own academic research, " she explained. " We also hope to introduce academic research as a career option and make connections with students ' work in the classrooms to work outside the classroom, " she added. School of Education junior Felicia Tripp, who participated in the program her sophomore year and then worked as a peer advisor for new students participating in UROP, felt that the program greatly enhanced her academic experience at the University. Her research on social change in Latin America allowed her to combine her interests in Spanish and education. She developed a close working relationship with her faculty advisor, learned valuable research skills, and broadened her own interest and knowledge of the subject. " Because of my participation in UROP, I am not afraid to deal with professors and other faculty members. I ' ve also learned how to do academic research which has helped me with my own school work, " she said. Gregerman and Tripp indicated that another integral aspect of UROP was its support system. Students were required to meet with peer advisors who provided encouragement and advice. Students also attended group meetings which offered a variety of social activities as well as informational workshops and guest lectures. " These group meetings are ways of offering our support to the students, and are an opportunity for new students to get in touch with the University and to meet others with similar intersets, " Tripp explained. Most students agreed that even though the program was demanding and challenging, the knowledge and skills they gained through their participation was worth the time and effort. In addition to gaining valuable work experience, many participants found that the program broadened their interests in academics and allowed them to become more involved in the University ' s research community.

Ready. ..and. ..five, six, seven, eight. Come on give me more. You ' ve got to put some of yourself into this. " Hard working students in the School of Music ' s Dance Department heard these phrases several hours each day as they danced a few steps closer to their bachelors and masters degrees through the Dance and Fine Arts curriculum. THE SCHOOL OF DANCE " I really respect the students in the dance program, " said Suzanne Jones, the administrative assistant of the School of Music ' s Dance Department. " They are an extremely committed and hard working group " . A spectacular example of the benefits of the hard work and commitment was superstar singer and dancer Madonna, who studied dance at the University. Gay Delanghe, a senior faculty instructor, who taught dance to Madonna when the budding performer attended the University said, " Madonna was an exemplary student. She had high energy, was alert and very committed. She also had a playful side and a great sense of humor " . The sixty-five students in the dance program tried to keep their sense of humor as they pounded the shiny schlack studio floors in the Dance Building, aspiring to heights as great as Madonna ' s. However, these students often perceived that they were not given ample credit for their dedication. " 1 think students in other academic fields often look down on the dancers, thinking they have it easy. But they (the dancers) are just as serious and passionate as any other students. They put a lot of thought and discipline into their work " said Jones. Samantha Shelton, a graduate student in dance, confirmed the dedication of the dance students. " I dance an average of six hours a day. Some days are busier and I dance ten. It ' s a lot of work, but I ' m really happy. Who else gets to do what they love all day, five days a week. It ' s phenonmenal! " said Shelton. Of course the energy needed to fulfill those incredible work loads did not come easy. " Dance concentrators have to watch their condition.. .what they eat, getting enough sleep, " said Jones. " It ' s hard, " added Shelton. " I don ' t want to eat foods with a lot of fat and I don ' t eat meat. But I have to make sure I get enough protein so I have energy " . Other dancers struggled with the same problem. " It ' s really funny, " said Shelton. " There is always some student in the dance building eating Dannon Lite Yogurt and Grape Nuts " . The hard work and perseverance of the dancers were their own rewards as various dance performances throughout the year provided memories to remember. 1 By Heather A.

Steve Goldstein Academics 105 James Duderstadt: " A Cult of Personality " As the president of the University, James Duderstadt had an infinite number of responsibilities. He was not only the leader of one of the most prestigious colleges in the world, but he also chaired the American Science Foundation due to his work as a nuclear physicist. These jobs required both the time and the energy of Dr. Duderstadt. However, " the Dude " found that he was able to balance the responsibilities of both positions with his personal life by efficient time management and his enduring University spirit. THE PRESIDENT An important part of Dr. Duderstadt ' s job was his ability to work with people and to establish a link between the University and the academic community. The Yale alumnus explained his role and the attributes that he brought to the office as he said, " I am not only the number one cheerleader for the University of Michigan, but I am also the supreme bureaucrat. I have a character that is capable of triggering change in order to prepare the University for the twenty-first century. " Duderstadt also indicated that his greatest weakness was perhaps the speed with which he wanted to accomplish this change. " I think impatience is my biggest weakness. I am a change agent and I sometimes forget that others may not be as eager as I am. " Duderstadt achieved change through a rigorous daily schedule. After waking at 4:30 every morning, he responded to some of his 200 electronic mail messages from the day before. Then he ran laps at the Track and Tennis Building from 6 a.m. to 7 a.m. in order to be at the office before 8 a.m. every morning. His day was filled with meetings with administrators, faculty members, and concerned students while his evenings were spent entertaining visitors to the University. Duderstadt explained his daily life as he stated, " This may seem strange, but I have no free time. Everything I do is in the interest of the University, whether it may be attending a performance at Hill or Rackham Auditorium or cheering at a football game on Saturday afternoons. Even at such occasions, I represent the University. " Overall, Duderstadt expressed his happiness with the University. He wanted to bring a sense of excitement while maintaining the character and the personality of the University. B} Vijay Nath 106 Academics I ames Duderstadt was very receptive to the students ' needs and enjoyed dealing with others in his pursuit of change. Jimmy Basse Academics 107 Students Ask Administrators to " Come Talk To Me " in Different Languages Organizations often took advantage of the bustling between-class traffic in the Angell Hall Fishbowl. Seated along the wall, groups sold donuts, collected signatures, and otherwise gained support. On a particular autumn day, LSA sophomore Larisa Lacis and LSA senior Monique Jonaitis were engaged in such a task; they were petitioning for the three main Baltic languages (Lithuanian, Latvian, and Estonian) to be taught at the University. Lacis and Jonaitis ' efforts stemmed from the realization that many of their Baltic friends wanted to learn about their own FOREIGN LANGUAGES ethnicity. However, students cited other motivating factors. " The Baltic states are growing and from a global perspective, these are good languages to learn, " said Jonaitis. The Center for South and Southeast Asian Studies (CSSAS) also planned to incorporate a new language into the curriculum. The Indian language of Tamil was scheduled to be taught in the fall semester, but complications called for postponement. Tamil was last taught at the University in 1979, and since then resident researchers and community members expressed interest in learning the language. Althought the CSSAS was responsible for organizing the incorporation of the course, Tamil would be taught through the Department of Asian Languages and Cultures. Students taking established languages expressed a variety of academic goals and impressions. " Japanesse is very intense, but also very rewarding. The Asian department is one of the most challenging at the University, " said LSA junior Katy Vincent. Learning Japanese was not only five days of grammar and language lessons; cultural values were also incorporated into the class as students were required to address teachers with the appropriate deference and respect. Students also received information sheets on everyday topics such as holiday celebrations and apartment hunting. For some, taking a new language promised a change of pace. " As an English major, I had to take four writing courses last semester. I had a paper due every other night. Taking Russian 101 this semester is very diversifying and I think it complements a liberal arts degree well, " said Andy Katz, an LSA junior. For other students, taking one foreign langauge wasn ' t enough. Megan Robertson, an LSA senior, was pursuing a double concentration in French and Russian. " Having a double concentration is job security, but I really believe that learning languages is a good blend of the artistic and scientific, " said Robertson. New developments in the Slavic languages curriculum included plans for a computer conference in Russian. Russian 351 instructor Michael Makin, with the help of the ITD computer services, hoped to set up a system that would operate like electronic mail. " Although many students do well on paper, some have a confidence problem talking in person. The computer conference would encourage the spontaneity of discussion while reinforcing vocabulary and fluency skills, " said Makin. 108 Academics By Miriam Yabut J Idar Salikhov and Suzanne Czurylo enhanced their language skills by watching foreign educational videotapes.

Steve Qoldstein Academics 109 RC Students Defy Myth of " People Are Strange " " East Quad? Isn ' t that where the Residential College (RC) is? Those RC students are, um, weird. " Putting this misconception aside revealed the true facts about the RC, a place where creative students were given the responsibility to shape and nurture their own education as well as express their ideas and talents. Established in 1967, the Residential College was created by LS A and offered a four-year B.A. and B.S. degree program. Initially, the RC was deemed a " radical " part of the University since students were politically and socially RESIDENTIAL COLLEGE active. This interest on the part of the RC students was seen as an o ddity by outsiders. In time, however, students realized the radicalism was really no more than an intense intellectual curiousity, and eventually the RC became a popular and respected part of the University community. " It is true that we attract students who are independently minded and creative. But students select the RC...we don ' t select them. We don ' t have the admissions selection process. Anybody who is accepted by LS A can come to the RC as a [first-year] student if he or she marks the box on the application, " said Gerlinde Lindy, coordinator of academic services in the RC. " Students select themselves and the only limitation we have is space in the dorm. " Space, both physical and intellectual, was a prominent theme within the RC. Class sizes were small, allowing 800 RC students one-on-one interplay with their professors. This interaction often allowed RC students the opportunity to cultivate their own interests and talents. " [RC students] are willing to take the responsibility for their own education, " said Lindy. " That ' s exactly what we try to encourage students to do: to participate in their education. " The classes the RC students were allowed to choose from were as diverse as the interests of the individual students. Everything from intensive language programs to social sciences to natural sciences was offered. Many believed the RC offered only A liberal arts curriculum; however, all of the courses were geared for critical thinking and analysis, which greatly developed the student ' s " bullshit detector " . " I wanted to balance my analytical science classes with the liberal arts classes, " said Maggi LaPietra, a science concentrator and graduate of the RC. " I think a good scientist must have a strong background in humanities as well as science " . Indeed, many of the classes reflected current social issues and theories, like " Introduction to Global Change " and " AIDS: The Challenge to Society " . Students did not receive letter grades for their classes; instead, first and second year students received individual evaluations from their professors with pass fail indicators. This system was designed to reduce classroom competition and emphasize individual achievement and progress. Upper-class RC students had the choice of whether or not to receive a letter grade, accompanied by an evaluation. The evaluations resembled " mini-recommendations. " As LaPietra explained, " They say more than a letter grade can; they heightened my abilites, my positive attitude and my work ethic. And I enjoyed the challenge of independence. I had to find my own path " . 1 10 Academics By Elyse Hardebeck M ike Rodriguez, a School of Natural Resources junior learned about electronics and circuitry in the Residential College ' s " Everyday Physics " class. -Josh Sohn .A. he Residential College dealt with many diverse interests, such as literature, science, and arts. -Josh Sohn i Academics 111 Students Succeed " With A Little Help From Their Friends " at CSP Offering academic and professional counseling, intensive course sections, and supplemental instruction, LS A ' s Comprehensive Studies Program (CSP) saw 9,000 students come through its doors to take advantage of such benefits each year. When students entered CSP ' s office in Angell Hall, they were immediately given a sense of the program ' s friendly and beneficial atmosphere. Gino Weaver, an LS A senior, confirmed the utility of the CSP. Weaver, an English major visited the CSP COMPREHENSIVE STUDIES PROGRAM office several times over the course of his four years at the University. Weaver felt that he reaped all of the benefits the program had to offer, taking full advantage of CSP ' s academic advisors, mentors, tutors, and specially-chosen teaching assistants. Weaver said, " It (the program) is close knit. It makes you feel comfortable. Everyone in the program knows each other. The real benefits come from smaller and more personal course sections. The instructors in the program are detailed and accessible. " Confirming Weaver ' s positive experiences with CSP ' s concerned and attentive staff, Dr. William Collins, the CSP Director, said, " We believe students can benefit from those who have an interest in teaching. Students are getting something useful. " The CSP has been assisting students many years. Dr. Collins ' work in graduate school at the University, led to the development of The Coalition for the Use of Learning Skills, which merged several years later, with The Opportunity Award Program. The combined effort in 1980 became The Comprehensive Studies Program, which Dr. Collins has directed since 1990. Although anyone was welcome to fill out an application for admission to the program, many students were selected when they were admitted to the University. Others found their way to the CSP during their four years at the University. Regardless of how students became involved, they all enjoyed the same personal attention and encouragement upon which the program was founded. Techniques such as attention and encouragement were emphasized over other methods such as hand-holding in an effort to make the students more self-reliant. Encouragement was provided through CSP ' s intensive course sections which met more often than different sections for the same course. Students in these intensive sections were also expected to complete more homework and quizzes in an effort to gain greater interaction with their instructors. " The teachers keep close tabs on the students. When students miss class, they may receive a call from their teacher, " said Fran Zorn, an instructor of several CSP courses. " People in the program care and want to help. It ' s a small, friendly unit. " 1 12 Academics By Heather A. Root . if D ' ue to small class size, students in the CSP were able to assist each other. Steve Qoldstein tudents, such as Kimelyn Hall, found the CSP classes to be an excellent alternative to other large sized classes taught at the University. Steve Qoldstein Academics 113 III I 1 Students Learn " ABC ' s and 123 ' s " from ECB The letters " ECB " stood for requirements that every University student, from concentrators in engineering to art, faced prior to graduation. For most students, the ECB requirement was dealt with as a two-tier process: as a first-year student and again as a junior or senior. Established with the goal of developing analytical and critical thinking and writing skills to a university level, the English Composition Board was responsible for overseeing a variety of courses and programs geared towards assisting students become better writers and thinkers. ENGLISH COMPOSITION BOARD An incoming student ' s first experience with the ECB was during orientation, in which his or her writing was assessed through a timed persuasive essay that placed the student in one of three composition levels: a writing practicum based on individual conferences with an ECB faculty member to improve the student ' s writing to an introductory level; English 125, the required introductory composition course; or a waiver for English 125, obtained through superior performance on the initial orientation essay. A second ECB requisite, the Upper-level Writing Requirement, had to be fulfilled during the junior or senior year by electing a course, usually offered within the student ' s concentration department, that emphasized the development of advanced writing specific to the student ' s field of study. The ECB was responsible for such programs as a writing workshop and a drop-in advising session with an ECB faculty member to go over everything from writer ' s block to personal statements for graduate school applications. Peer tutoring in the Angell Hall computing center as well as in some residence hall computer centers aided students in their quest to perfect their literary skills. In the future, the ECB hoped to establish computer-assisted instruction in addition to outreach programs involving students at Pioneer High School in Ann Arbor. Student opinions on ECB requirements varied. Angela Moggo, a senior in the School of Natural Resources and Environment, believed that the ECB requirements were well-intended yet poorly administered. " It ' s good that everyone has to take a writing class, because regardless of what you ' re going into, you still need to be able to write effectively. " She mentioned the quality of instruction in some classes to be a drawback, with teaching assistants and professors varying on specific requirements and goals for the upper-level classes. Jennifer Toth, a LS .A junior concentrating in psychology, agreed. " Although I did like my English 125 class, which was taught by a professor instead of a TA, I ' m putting off the upper-level class. I guess I just don ' t like to write any more than I have to. " ECB requirements may have been bothersome, but they helped students become better writers while encouraging communication between students and faculty. Furthermore, these classes were the only specific courses required for every University student, so regardless of concentration or school, each student developed his or her writing to a university level, the primary goal of the English Composition Board.

In the past, these themes ranged from the 500-year anniversary of Columbus ' voyage to the Americas to working in a multi-cultural society. The Studies in Religion department organized a very successful program for the winter semester, titled " The Theory and Practice of Evil, " which was met with an enthusiastic response from University students and faculty as well as the Ann Arbor community. THE THEME SEMESTER Devised from the " Visiting Professor of Religious Thought " series, begun in 1 983 , the department set out to create a unifying theme for courses offered in religion for the winter semester. According to Studies in Religion Professor Astrid B. Beck, the religion faculty arrived at the theme of evil by first asking some intriguing questions: " What stands out in this century? How do we reshape for the next century? " By considering the events and attitudes of the past century, an exploration of the ideas that caused evil emerged as both a " topic for academic inquiry " and as the department ' s theme for its courses. Having decided upon a theme, the department was asked by LSA dean Edie Goldberg to incorporate the examination of evil in other departments within the college. The theme received a strong response. In all, twenty- one courses were offered not only by departments in LSA but also by those in the schools of education, law, and music. With courses examining evil in areas scuh as cinema, children ' s literature, war, culture, and music, student response was very positive as most courses were over enrolled or closed. Beck cited the involvement of departments outside of the humanities as very unusual for a theme semester, particularly noting the Physics Department ' s course, " The Physicist and the Bomb. " Furthermore, faculty members were exposed to new courses preparing for the semester by conducting Friday seminars in the fall amongst themselves to learn and to practice teaching new material. " The Theory and Practice of Evil " was not solely directed to the University community. Three exhibitions of visual arts were planned for the public as well as musical presentations and a play of " Dr. Faustus. " The Ann Arbor community at large was also invited to attend the " Visiting Professor of Religious Thought " lecture series, which also served as a course for University students. Speakers for the series included scholars from Princeton, Harvard, Columbia, and Lusanne, Switzerland among distinguished UM faculty.

However, many students realized that they had to become involved in challenging and rewarding activities in order to receive " the full college experience " . One such activity which offered both challenges and rewards was the act of volunteering time and energy to th e many charitable and non-profit organizations around campus. Volunteering gave students the knowledge and experience that could not be found in books or lecture halls. VOLUNTEERING IN THE COMMUNITY Furthermore, volunteering allowed students to assist others and to contribute to the university community. The range of the University ' s volunteer positions was extremely broad. Students found interesting opportunities in fields such as medicine, law, environment, psychology, physical therapy, and teaching to name a few. LSA sophomore Lisa Bane decided to volunteer at Mott ' s Children ' s Hospital in Ann Arbor after rewarding volunteer experiences in her hometown. Bane spent her Sundays playing games and reading stories to the children. " It was a tremendously rewarding experience with children, " she said. " I feel as though I helped to brighten up their days. " Students volunteered their time in other capacities as well. For example, LSA senior Betsy Share spent time at Prospect Place Family Shelter in Ypsilanti as a member of Project Outreach. After her official project had been completed, she decided to continue her duties at the shelter which offered support services while assisting homeless family members to find jobs. " My volunteer time was a real giving experience. People who do not volunteer miss out on an important part of learning. " Share added, " It is learning that takes place in the heart, not in the mind. It gives you an education about the world, and how little you may see if you do not assist others. Unfortunately, many people choose to avoid the things that are unpleasant. " Share encouraged students to volunteer their services to help people in need. Indeed, the University ' s volunteers did not express regrets about sacrificing their free time to work towards making their community a better place. Some individuals may have cringed at the thought of waking up early on weekend mornings or missing a few parties at night; however, those who volunteered actually looked forward to their duties. They thought of the experience as fun rather than work. Additionally, many students indicated that they received satisfaction from their volunteering activites because they were able to see the results and progress of their work. This progress was simply worth all of their time. By KristenJ.

In actuality, this collective array of sounds did exist and was organized under the pretext of a rehearsal or exercise. Every day, music students arduously strived to excel in areas ranging from voice performance to music education. Indeed, the self-assured musicians who performed on stage were products of years of learning and self-exploration at the School of Music. ' I I It IVTLJSI Perhaps the primary subject that first-year School of Music students learned involved exploring their respective fields and deciding on a specialized area within that field. " Being a freshman, I expected to be a little lost here, but it didn ' t happen that way, " said Ryan White, School of Music first-year student. " I like the atmosphere; I don ' t feel like a number. Right now, I ' m just trying to figure out what I want to do. Voice performance gives me an opportunity to study the basicstheory, history, technique and go from there. " Extracurricular activities helped many students identify their musical talents and interests. School of Music sophomore Michael Budowitz decided on a music concentration after serving as a substitute for his church ' s organist. Since that time, he discovered some unique features of the instrument: " The organ makes a lot of noise. That ' s one of the cooler things about it. It ' s also probably the most flexible instrument. " However, he also identified some challenges in his field. " One of my personal missions is to get away from the association with church music, " said Budowitz. " Since people don ' t realize that there are twentieth century organ pieces it ' s difficult to get people to listen to the organ. " One School of Music junior made a decision about her music career after taking certain classes. Her original intentions were to teach choir, but she found a different age group more enjoyable to teach. " My first education class on elementary methods involved teaching third graders. They were such a blast! I told them to clap and they were clapping even before I finished my instructions to them, " said Lainie Nabb. By taking intro classes on winds, percussion, and violin, Nabb discovered that she wanted to teach elementary band. In addition to its broad curriculum, the School of Music featured a prestigious and well-respected faculty. The fall opera conductor Professor Martin Katz brought a friend to a performance of Dialogue of the Carmelites. His friend was renowned opera singer Kiri Te Kanawa, who appeared backstage after the performance much to the surprise of cast members. " No one expected to see her there. We were all astounded and stood around kind of dazed until Martin Katz said, ' You know, she ' s just a person. Go and talk to her. 1 " said Deena Hausner, School of Music junior.

This feeling was particularly true in the natural sciences, a requirement striking fear into the hearts of those who never understood the complexities of polar molecules, chromosome replication, or why work equaled force times distance. Therefore many students opted to take Practical Botany 102, a popular and highly unusual course. This 160-person class offered students the chance to understand and work with plants in a relaxing and ELECXIVES H stimulating manner. Students were exposed to a variety of topics in the lecture portion of the class. They learned how plants functioned, including related topics such as the life sustaining process of photosynthesis and various reproductive methods. The labs then gave the students a chance to utilize such knowledge as they learned to grow and maintain a variety of fruits, vegetables, and other plants using different methods including the forced flowering of bulbs. Alternate measures of pest control were discussed and applied within the atmosphere of the greenhouse. Most of all, however, students learned methods by which they could take care of the ecological balance and natural beauty of the world. Within the beautiful Matthaei Botanical Gardens where the lab and discussion sections were held, students had a unique hands-on experience. Each student had his or her own private work space within one of the two greenhouses used by the course. One of the most highly anticipated projects for students was the making of wine experiment. For those students too young to drink, it was a unique chance to sample the less strong but still " forbidden " taste of alcohol. Students also attempted to design bonsai trees, make medicinal salve, and breed plants. This knowledge culminated in a final potluck dinner where each student presented a recipe report and prepared a dish made from plants for themselves, other students, faculty, and their guests. One of the highlights of the semester was a visit to Envotech Greenhouse in Belleville, Michigan. This greenhouse featured herbs grown hydroponically within an environment whose heat was supplied by methane from the Wayne County garbage dump. During the semester, students also toured the campus and observed the University ' s own plants and trees. Much of the field work outsi ie the lab was included within the structure of the class and helped establish this course as challenging, useful, and fun. For Professor Estabrook, one of the professors for the course, teaching students that Practical Botany 1 02 was more than " just a class " was very important. Within this course, students learned more than how to take care of those plants, fruits, and vegetables. While taking some of their plants back to their rooms, students were left to think about what our society needed to do in order to fix the earth ' s woes. By studying plants, organisms vital to our existence, students were planting the seeds of knowledge for a more far-reaching consciousness for years to come.

The library was principally a gift from Mrs. Alvin Bentley of Owosso, Michigan founded in 1935 to provide a home to the many historical documents and pictures owned by the University. It was one of the primary historical research facili- ties at the University and in the state of Michigan. The Bentley Historical Library held most of the historical documents of the state of Michigan. This collection was called the Michigan Histori- cal Collections and was comprised of 4,500 archival documents, 40,000 printed works, and nearly 500,000 photographs. It covered periods since 1835 containing historical works from all of the 83 counties of Michigan. The library ' sholdings ranked among the finest collections in the U.S. because of the historical collections of papers from churches, businesses, political parties, immigrant groups, and prominent families such as the Vandenbergs of Grand Rapids and the Kelloggs of Battle Creek. Some of the materials were housed in an off- 126 Northern Exposure site location so the library suggested that its re- searchers ask for them at least two days in advance. Bentley Historical Library was linked to a computer network where people could inquire about which holdings they had, and other general information. The world-wide network also in- spired the library to develop a computer-based access system for the archives of the Vatican. LSA senior Larina Griffin went to the library often and said, " I needed to do a report for my sociology class. I had to research what professions people used to have, or what occupied their time a hu ndred years ago and I found everything I was looking for in here. " LSA sophomore Heather Bergman said, " I like to go there to look up my family ' s history. I don ' t have to write a report on it, but it ' s exciting to go in a place that has a piece of your family, a place of history. " Natural Resources senior Brian Levy said, " It was interesting to come here and look at some of the original documents that helped build our state. It was very educational. " A wealth of information was found in the stacks , such as the past issues of the Michiganensian yearbooks. Bentley Historical Library offered students the opportunity to According to a Library brochure, " The librar not only searches all over the state of Michigan fo historical documents of importance, it also work with organizations and individuals to identif records which will become the important histori-j cal documents of the future. The library has ar ongoing program to preserve its aging document so as to ensure their use for generations to come. ' ] -Myrna Jacksor Northern Exposure 127 CAMPUS Photographs by Stephen Goldstein Among the resources students were able to access and enjoy on North Campus, the Registra- tion office had Crisp on the list. Many students were not aware that a crisp office existed for drop add usage for all students in any school. However, North Campus Crisp users accessed the office from eight to five. Access was available to all students living on North Campus, Central Campus or off- campus whether they were in the School of LSA, Engineering, Natural Science, etc. North Cam- pus Crisp office began in 1985 and served the School of Engineering students to register for classes on scheduled days. Although students in other schools could not register for classes in the EECS (Electrical Engi- neering and Computer Science) building, they could drop add courses. Mira Mitra, supervisor of Crisp Offices, said, " Anyone can come over. We don ' t get many LSA students because they prefer to go to Central Campus although it is more crowded. " Unlike Angell Hall Crisp, the room for North Campus Crisp was furnished with plenty of chairs and tables for students to sit down and leisurely plan out their classes. Like Angell Hall, it had telephones and time schedules. School of Engineering junior Michael Carter said, " It ' s better because you get away from all those people. It ' s faster and quicker and you can get all your stuff done without a hassle. I ' ve been to the Crisp office in Angell Hall once and there were too many people from too many colleges. " LSA senior Anna Gigliotti said, " I ' m really satisfied with dropping and adding classes here. I added a class here that I normally wouldn ' t have gotten had I waited in line at Angell Hall. I took the last spot in the class. It took less than twenty minutes. " LSA junior Kirby Passmore agreed. " I just moved to North Campus and I didn ' t want to think about taking the bus all the way to Centra Campus and then having to stand in a long line t( change my classes. That would have taken hour Walking to EECS is just a few minutes and hardl anyone is ever there.

Many women believed it was crucial to protect themselves in case of an assault. For the third year in a row, North Campus Commons ' Administrative Office offered Un- common Courses. The courses were meant to give students practical experience in several areas and an opportunity to meet other students. It provided them with a relaxed atmosphere that was not a regular part of the academic world. Uncommon Courses was originated by the suggestion of a student who noticed the success the University Activities Center ' s (UAC) Un- common Courses on Central Campus. After the student left the University, Helen Welford took over the programs and became the director. Welford also taught the Scottish Country Danc- ing course. " No one steals students from anyone else because we always have some courses that can ' t take any more students. We were looking for courses that were similar to UAC ' s. Self- Defense had been building for a while until we couldn ' t take any more students. We had courses that we started this semester, but they were not so successful and we had to drop them, " said Welford. The administrative office offered Bartending, Scottish country Dancing, Womyn ' s Self Defense, Tai Chi Chuan, and a Department of Public Safety and University Health Service peer education programs workshop. One of the instructors for the popular Bartending class, Ken Mallwitz, stated, " Honestly, I do it for the money, but the students are always fun to teach. I ' m trying to return to school because I dropped out. I couldn ' t afford to stay in because of financial reasons. I got my experience from work- ing in the Nectarine. I learned from a hands-on-experience point-of-view. You can read about it, but unless you apply it, the skill won ' t be learned. " School of Natural Resources junior Theda Rogers stated, " I wanted to try bartending because I would like to be a bartender on the side. I thought it would be a new challenge and exciting. If I decide to bartend, the money I pay now will pay off in the future. If I decide not to professionally bartend, it will still always be a useful skill I can Self Defense class because she wanted to learn how to protect herself in case of an attack. " So many women have been raped or physically harassed; I decided not to take my chances. I really like the class, too, " said Smith. Welford also remarked, " There ' s no pressur The courses were constructed so that the studen could unwind after a regular academic day. We ' r having a good time. I ' m happy to be able to hel students get more experience with learning ou side of credited courses. I hope that more studen sign up for courses next year and we can give them more variety.

They expressed a desire to inform and unify the African American stu- dent population by providing an atmosphere conducive to positive interaction and learn- ing. As a result, the first annual African American Student Leadership Conference was created. With the support and assistance of staff advisers from the Minority Student Ser- vices, Student Organization Development Center, Trotter House, and Housing Special Programs, the program is now a reality. " The goal of this conference is to help all African American students, primarily those in their first year, to make experiences at the University of Michigan productive as well as positive. The conference is designed to equip students with the tools they need to be suc- 132 Northern Exposure cessful in college and future endeavors. " On October 30, 1 993, the first African Ameri- can Leadership Conference was held in the North Campus Commons. The conference included a day of educational workshops, keynote speakers, panel discussions, and a reception for students, faculty, staff, and spe- cial guests. The keynote speakers were Dr. Dennis Rahim Watson, who gave a speech on " Success in the 21st Century, " and Dr. Geneva Smitherman, who spoke on " African Ameri- can Unity. " Workshops and classes ranged from How to Make the Most of Your Time to Conflict Resolution !! %...! Almost everyone there was happy with the conference. Faculty advisor to the confer- ence, Barbara Robinson, stated, " I thought the conference was excellent. I was most proud of the students who worked hard over the months to plan and execute the conference, especially since it was their first time. The keynote speakers were good; the food was good; everything was good. " LSA sopho- more Nerissa Marbury stated, " My favorite workshop was Time Management. Afterwards,L ' I really started using my time wisely. " LSA senior Tamara Jackson stated, " I was happy I came. At first I didn ' t think that it would be helpful because I ' m a senior, but the workshops like Making Connections, and Life After College were extremely helpful. I feel fully confident now about interviewing forl jobs and meeting people. " Some of the students were satisfied with the conference, but disappointed with the turnout. Marbury stated, " I thought more people should have been there. Next year I ' m going to try to get on the committee and promote the conference so more people can come. I want to broaden the understanding of attendance. " - Myrna Jackson Top left: Lori Taylor and Holly Hawkins check students in handing out programs and name tags.

HI Northern Exposure 133 NORTHWARD BOUND Photo Essay by Jimmy Bosse Most LSA students were either fortunate enough or smart enough not to have courses or housing on North Campus. However, for those who chose to be artists, architects, engineers, dancers or musical performers, the convenience of walkable distances did not exist. Oh yes, how can one forget those poor first-year LSA students (j[ who had the great misfortune of being housed at Bursley. Not that Bursley itself was a poor dorm, but rather for those students without North Campus courses, life could be a nightmare. Because of the exceptionally cold winter and the city ' s shenanagins involving the Fuller Bridge, commuting to North Campus was most if horrific. These next four pages are dedicated to those who had to endure the elements simply because they were northward bound. [ Northwood Bound 134 Northern Exposure All aboard!

Solar Car Team Runs on Success The U-M Solar Car was the larg- est, most diverse student project ever undertaken at the University. The second generation team was formed in the fall of 1990. By utilizing the earlier team ' s experiences, the team set out to improve their race vehicle, the Maize Blue . After three years of design, construction, and testing, the result was a smaller, lighter, and faster car. Maize Blue began Sunrayce 1993 in tenth place but went on to win a second national championship for the University in a field of 34 collegiate teams. In No- vember, Maize Blue competed in the Australian World Solar Chal- lenge. The solar car qualified fifth behind professional teams from Biel, Honda, Toyota, and Kyocera and finished eleventh in a 54-car field despite technical difficulties. In September, the third genera- tion team was formed.

Military Activities Keep Navy ROTC Busy Members of the U-M Naval Re- serve Officers Training Corps par- ticipated in a wide variety of activi- ties in addition to their usual studies. IJDuring the fall term, the Midship- jman Battalion (Navy ROTC) drilled at South Ferry Field every Wednes- jday afternoon. Drill gave the Mid- shipmen the opportunity to practice facing movements and to acquire the skills and abilities that enabled them to function as a unit. During the winter term, drill consisted of a series of " Battle Studies " in which the Mid- shipmen familiarized themselves with the offensive and defensive strate- gies that were utilized by the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps with various weapons systems. Throughout the year the Mid- shipmen endured numerous inspec- tions. They were graded on their military bearing, uniform appearance, and overall knowledge. Informative briefings on topics ranging from the latest military developments to health issues rounded out the Mid- shipman Battalion ' s busy schedule.

Club ' s First Year a Success In the fall of 1992, Adam Chodkowski and David Wartowski noticed that there was no network for students on campus who were interested in Poland ' s culture and language. On month later, they formed the Polish Club. In a little over one year, the informal club had made great strides in increasing its exposure, with nearly 70 people in- volved in various aspects of the orga- nization. The Polish Club was met with enthusiasm by its new members. " I think it ' s a great idea, " said club trea- surer Anne Andrusiak.

" The club also brought together those without Polish blood but with an interest in the country and the language. Michael Young, who was not Polish but had previ- ously enjoyed Polish food such as pierogi, joined the club because he| enjoyed the language. He was the club secretary.

Ml J Panhellenic Efforts Make Fall Rush a Success Although the Panhellenic Asso- ciation Executive Board was involved in many campus events, their great- est challenge was the coordination of Fall Sorority Rush. Fall Rush com- menced on September 1 2 after many months of careful planning and prepa- ration. The enormity of the task of executing Fall Rush was overwhelm- ing. Best expressed in numerical terms, Fall Rush included the par- ticipation of eighteen sorority houses, each of which hosted forty parties, with 1600 sorority women and 900 rushees involved in the process. In other words, the ten-member board coordinated 2500 women and 720 rush parties within the short span of two and a half weeks. Fall Rush was particularly reward- ing for the board members because it strengthened their relationships within the Panhellenic Association and within the Greek community. For the board members, it was both an honor and a privilege to serve the Panhellenic Association, and an ex- perience that they will remember for a lifetime.

SMES Program Works with Detroit Area Students The Society of Minority Engi- neering Students (SMES) was one of the largest student-run organizations at the University. It was an umbrella organization for the National Soci- ety of Black Engineers and the Soci- ety of Hispanic Professional Engi- neers. The mission of SMES was the " recruitment, retention, and success- ful graduation of its members. " SMES achieved its goals by holding bi monthly meetings focusing on aca- demic, personal and professional growth and development. SMES also sponsored programs for its pre-college initiative. One such event was a Saturday morning program which SMES participated in as a part of the Detroit Area Pre- College Engineering Program. In this program, students from Detroit area schools attended pre-engineer- ing and engineering science courses. The general body of SMES hoped that by exposing young people to the application of science and engineer- ing early, the program would encour- age them to continue their academic growth.

EnvironiM r ' at the 1 Sponsors toniestsati ii April, in 1 feigned an me form Engineering Outreach The members of the U-M Society of Women Engineers believed that education was the first step in in- creasing the number of women in the engineering professions. To pro- mote engineering as a viable profes- sion, the society was committed to educating as many young women as possible about engineering educa- tion. Heading up the effort was the " Summer Engineering Exploration. " For one week in July, sophomore and High school students worked on design projects in Qallup park with the help of society mem- bers during the summer. 166 Organizations junior high school women lived on campus while learning all they could about the engineering opportunities available to them. Other outreach programs included high school vis- its, Girl Scout Week, during which Girl Scouts completed projects to earn an engineering patch, and a youth interest program where fifth grade students engineered a Big Mac, making engineering applicable to everyday life. Summer Exploration students tried to understand a contraption during their visit to the Ann Arbor Hands On Museum.

New U-M Song Selected for Men ' s Glee Club Men ' s Qlee Club Director Dr. Jerry Blackstone. In the spring of 1993, the Men ' s Glee Club announced a Michigan Song Contest. The group wished to add to the body of traditional college songs that were perennial standards in the Men ' s Glee Club repertoire. Thirty nine entries were submitted by September 3 1 . All entries were judged by a panel including Men ' s Glee Club director Jerry Blackstone, dance professor Howard Watkins, and vocal performance student Jack Anthony Pott. The name of each composer was kept anonymous from the panel to ensure objectivity. The winner of the contest was David S. Cortwright. His composi- tion, " Memories of Michigan, " re- [ ceived its premier performance at the Men ' s Glee Club ' s Annual Fall Concert in November.

The year represented an impor- ant turning point for the Women ' s Glee Club. For the first time, the group performed in Hill Auditorium for a collaborative holiday concert that also featured the Men ' s Glee Club and the Arts Chorale. Singing at Hill was a wonderful opportunity for the women, and one they hoped to repeat. Another first for the Women ' s Glee Club was the Vocal Arts Day that members hosted in January. High school women from around the state attended a day-long event which included workshops and seminars on singing given by the School of Music faculty. Members assisted through- out the day and gave a concert for high school directors and parents at the end of the day. The Women ' s Glee Club also hoped to make this an annual event.

Harmonettes Sing For a Cause The Harmonettes were an a capella sub- group of the Women ' s Glee Club. They per- formed many different types of music from the 1940 ' s to the present, and even included some disco this year. Although they performed at the Women ' s Glee Club concerts and at their own spring concert, the Harmonettes were also avail- able for hire to perform at social events. The Monsters of A Capella concerts on February 5 and 6 were the most enjoyable performances for the Harmonettes. Along with UAC ' s Amazin ' Blue and the Men ' s Glee Club Friars, they put on an a cappella extravaganza that quickly sold out. Best of all, the proceeds of the benefit went to the Ann Arbor Homeless Shelter, making the performances all the more worthwhile. Organizations 1 73 , c , nu t THE FRIARS Back in 1955 two rival quartets in the University of Michigan Men ' s Glee Club--The Arbors and The Whatchamacallits-- decided to end their feudin ' ways and fused to become The Friars. The name was taken from a prestigious drinking society that flourished on campus in the early 1900 ' s. The frothy beer mug that served as the group ' s logo paid tribute to the light-hearted spontaneity which marked every Friars performance. In the past decade, the Friars were spotted at the White House, the Rose Bowl, the Hollywood Palladium, the Miss Hawaii Pageant, Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union, several Caribbean Islands, as well as around the great city of Ann Arbor. Whether they were at a football game, at the Power Center, hanging from a tree in the Diag, or at the West Engineering Arch, the Friars never resisted an opportunity to perform and enjoyed nothing more than putting smiles on the faces of their audience. This year ' s Friars were particularly proud to release their compact disc, Random, which closed 1 993 as the Best Selling local CD in Ann Arbor. Clockwise from top left: Paul Qeddes, Jeremy Findley, Ayal Miodovnik, and Jason Menges relaxing in the Caribbean on Spring Break.

The U-M Outing Club became popular among students due to an increase in alternative sports aware- ness and a renewed interest in envi- ronmental issues. The club ' s activi- ties provided escape from the Uni- versity and Ann Arbor for its mem- bers. " This is really the best way for me to forget about the pressure of school and exams and everything, " said engineering sophomore Dave Spitzley, who went on the Yankee Springs cabin trip. " I spent less money on the trip than I would have staying in Ann Arbor for the weekend, and I ' ve gotten to know a lot of people I would never have met in class. " Even friends learned new things about each other during Outing Club events, such as Elisa Sneed ' s discovery about her housemates, Walter Miller and J udy Kafka, during the Sleeping Bear Dunes getaway. " When did these two learn to wash dishes? " she won- dered. Camping trips didn ' t always go as planned, making for more adven- ture. " The canoeing trip was really fun, once we finally found the camp- ground, " said LSA junior Dan McKinsey. " Then we got on the river, we flipped over and we just laughed about it because though ev- erything went wrong, it was still bet- ter than being stuck in Ann Arbor!

The pro- gram involved over 700 lactose- in- tolerant victims who banded to- gether, not only for fun, hut for com- panionship. Since 1909 the NLI AS, through the aid of Student Organi- zations, guided students through the chaos and prejudice of a milk-drink- ing society. Students met weekly to learn important techniques, giving them a strong advantage in the milk market. These included: learning how to write effective and creative letters to government officials to ban dairy products, learning ways to inform milk-drinkers about lactose discrimination and stereotypes, and conducting re- search into the selling end of dairy products. The NL1AS also brought in guest lectures open to the public during the year. Did you know these people were lactose- intolerant?

Ill i Greg Antilla Business Manager For Greg Antilla one of the most exciting aspects of his job was to imple- ment changes for the Daily and see them through. " 1 have the ultimate power to make changes in archaic poli- cies and procedures in order to benefit the Daily and make the staff run more efficiently, " said Antilla, a senior Ac- counting major. One such change involved the Daily ' s commission system, which was based on tenure. Antilla changed the policy, making commission based on perfor- mance. " Before there was no incen- tive; now if the staff works diligently, they are rewarded, " said Antilla. Antilla also created an ad-tracking system using a data base program to track trouble spots in advertising. With the new system, Antilla was better able to gauge which advertisers needed to be targeted. Antilla did not begin to work for the Daily until his third year at the University, but he came to the paper with experience. Working at the Harbor Light, a Harbor Springs, Michi- gan newspaper, Antilla ' s responsibili- ties included everything from writing to advertising, to delivering papers. " I did every thing! " said Antilla. Antilla ' s responsibilities as busi- ness manager were much more fo- cused, including monitoring the bud- get, managing 1 70 staff members, con- structing financial reports, and report- ing to the Board for Student Publica- tions. Antilla enjoyed his responsi- bilities, realizing their uniqueness. " In the ' real world ' there ' s no way I ' d be given so much responsibility and power at such a young age, " said Antilla. Antilla hoped to land a job with an accounting firm upon graduation, but also was very interested in working in the newspaper or publishing industry. 180 Organizations ! Josh Dubow - Josh Dubow didn ' t always excel in academics. He skipped class. He failed to study. He negotiated with profes- sors. He also carried one of the largest responsibilities of any student at the University: Editor-in-Chief of the Michigan Daily newspaper. Dubow sacrificed academics to de- vote 60-70 hours a week to the Daily, believing his talents were much more useful for the paper. " If I ' m on my way to class and a crisis arises at the Daily, I ' m much better served to stay, " said Dubow. Keeping pace with new technol- ogy, Dubow played a major role in moving the Daily towards full-pagina- tion, which involved purchasing new computer equipment, staff training, and switching printers. The new print- ing company, the Ann Arbor News, also allowed for a premiere color issue. " My experience with the Daily has been incredible, " said Dubow. " I ' ve learned about business, new technol- ogy, working with a board (Board for Student Publications), and running a staff. " Editor-in-Chief Dubow entered the University in 1990 with no previous newspaper ex- perience, and in his first week went to the Daily for a position. " I knew in high school that I wanted to work for a newspaper some day, " said Dubow. His first position as a sports writer gave him interviewing and writing ex- perience as he wrote 1-2 stories a month. Interviewing was his biggest initial challenge. " I was intimidated to ask people questions, " said Dubow. With years of practice, however, he quickly became an expert. Sports editors Mike Gill, Matt Rennie, Jeff Sheran, John Niyo, and Andy Gottesman taught Dubow about writing, editing, and life, providing the inspiration to excel. " They gave me something to shoot for, " said Dubow. Dubow was soon promoted to one of five sports editors and eventually landed the Editor-in-Chief position. Dubow ' s final challenge was to use his diverse experience at the Michigan Daily as a stepping stone to a city news- paper. Though cooperation between the business and edit staffs was a key to the Daily ' s growth and success, their work areas were divided in the Student Publications Build- ing.

She was a member of Revolutionary Workers League (RWL), National Women ' sRightsOrganizingCoalition(NWROC), and Ann Arbor Committee to Defend Abortion and Reproductive Rights (AACDARR). " Part of why I made the decision to become a revolutionary is that life under this social system is crappy. The only thing that makes me feel good is when I ' m fighting back; it ' s something worth living for. There ' s no feeling like it. It ' s more exciting than anything when you ' re able to fight back and " It ' s not when people look up to you when you ' re sacrificing a comfortable lifestyle that makes it worth doing, it ' s nor a popularity thing, or else 1 don ' t think anyone would do it. " This summer we went around the US to do clinic defense. Operation Rescue (OR) was going to shut down seven abortion clinics and we followed to stop them. We weren ' t as successful as we would have liked, but our organization is still growing. " I remember in April of ' 92 they hit a clinic that we were defending in Buffalo, NY. It was a high-rise medical building and the abortion clinic was on the fifth floor. There was a huge parking lot in back of it and we had to surround the building. 190 Voices jodi. " It ' s a lot of fun and something hilarious always happens at just a particular moment when we ' re protesting or doing clinic defense. OR has divisions of | laborers: singers, prayers, and chargers. One of the chargers scaled the wall that was surrounding the parking structure where we were. After he went through all the trouble of making it up the there, one of us kicked him in the butt right back over the wall so he fell down. The picture was in the paper just like that, with the guy getting kicked and about to fall back down. I think | the caption read something like " Operation Rescue ' s Big Hit. " " Women must have control over their bodies. If women choose to carry a pregnancy to term, there ' s a societal obligation to guarantee the woman and the child can have positive conditions of existence. And if a woman decides to terminate a pregnancy, society is also obligated to ensure that she has a safe, accessible, and economically feasible means to attaining the procedure. :r; iemB ; look at social worth as social x nsciousness. What ' s most im- portant is the socially conscious ndividual, the woman; a fetus does not have a social consciousness, don ' t put the rights of the s over that socially conscious dividual. " My organization, RWL, and united front we work within, WROC, went to the march on ashington this summer that was pposed to commemorate the Oth anniversary of the original ivil rights march. We were there :o agitate for the rebuilding of a ilitant, integrated civil rights ovement that could go beyond e march on one day of the year, e Black Democrats and the AACP called off the march and id a rally because they wanted to bore people. They didn ' t want to have march because they didn ' t want to get people in a fighting spirit, so half of he sit-in was gospel singing. The speakers kept saying how bad things were, ;nd Ben Chavis (President of the NAACP) said, " It ' s okay for Clinton not :o be here, it ' s okay for him to take a vacation, we just pray you hear us. " The Bottom line is that the capitalists need black leaders to support their decisions to pacify the black working class and poor, so dv positions. " After the revolution, evervi me in KW L want - u n he capitalist state and establish Worker ' s democ lisarmed and disbapled an Lid sejJ P rkj [uards. We wa mpiationalize health care uflGer vJ int programs for socialization of cooking, cleaning, and child care. We ive to develop programs; as the system is now, we use women as cheap labor the work force and free labor in the home. We expect to accomplish this ugh revolution. " We want improvement in education and standard of living conditions, e plan to do all this by expropriating banks and industrial capitol, putting hem under the control of a workers democracy in order to distribute that ioney toward massive development, raising the standard of living and education around the world. " If we had a revolution here first, our main goal would be to aid the revolutionary struggles in other countries. We are revolutionary interna- tionalists, Trotskyists. " We fight racism, sexism, and anti-gay lesbian bigotry. We in the RWL seek to link the struggles of the oppressed and the struggle for working class emancipationinto one Pjfl|||j ' movement that can be led to victory by a tempered revolutionary Trotsky ist party.

It was December 15 1990 and I was hanging out with my friends Michelle, Eric, and Matt. We were driving around and not doing much when Matt came up with the idea of getting some Jock Daniels and Coke to drink. He knew a waitress who couk B for us so we could have a private party. When we got it we went to Eric ' s . I hadn ' t really drunk before, and a | these huge tumblers. All of us dranl house bee ght mu much, then he asked me if ItoUev docM iatI P r wanted to dance. I said ' sure. ' I didn ' t realize how drunk I was but when w ouldalrav started dancing, I fell. Matt helped me up. I had never been drunk before ir my life. Some things still aren ' t too clear. " When he helped me up he pushed me towards the front door and we wen outside. He had me play a game where I leaned over to see how far I coul go without falling. The first time I almost fell and he caught me -that shoulc inwtt. licit have been a clue for me that he wasn ' t that drunk. He did it again and again nntcJt The third time he caught me and didn ' t let me go. He kissed me, and I kissei him back. He put my hands on his crotch, and I said ' stop. ' " He pushed me back towards the door and made me go inside. The nex thing I can remember I was on the bed with my panty hose and panties aroun my ankles. Matt was on top of me. 1 kept hearing this banging noise and realized that it was my head banging against the headboard. I remember being very painful and I just lied there because I was mostly in shock. Whe he finished he got up and asked me if I wanted to do it again. That was th only question he asked me that night. I said ' no ' and tried to get up to get awa from him, but he pushed me back down and raped me again. " He got up the second time and put on his pants and said, ' If you ever war latmyfatl it again, here ' s my number. Just call. ' I puked all over the bed and myself rigr ne to time after he said that. I got up and went to the bathroom and stayed in there wit : the door locked for at least two hours, throwing up and crying.

She didn ' t ask any questions becau; : .. it was obvious that I was drunk. She just told me that J was grounded for tl next month and that I couldn ' t go anywhere; no malls, no Christmas partie nothing. The last thing I needed was to be at home constantly thinking aboi what had happened. " I felt like a whore. I hated myself for a long time, and I was despondei ivetc enr about life. I constantly thought about it, how disgusting it was and I just thr up for the next two weeks. I knew that was a reaction to the disgust I felt abo the whole thing. I really hated myself for the next two years. " My period didn ' t come and somehow he found out. He said he would pi for half of the abortion. He thought that I should be responsible for some m d it. Again, I was shocked that he would suggest something like that. I : peopl it . 192 Voices Ubfe ctfflJwe ! fir I COB ladn ' t had my period, so I took a pregnancy test. It came out negative. " I told everyone that I wasn ' t pregnant and in the meantime went to see doctor about why I was missing my periods. He told me that it couldn ' t be - ' tfd hat I was pregnant, and that it was just stress. He didn ' t even bother to give ' ii ' EticMne a pregnancy test. I finally got my period months later and it came out lotting. It really hurt. I went to the doctor again and he said that I had probably been pregnant. I still don ' t have a regular period; I don ' t think I ' m ble to have children. After he raped me I felt somehow that I needed his acceptance of me. I tatwheni vould always watch to see if he was around, or where he was. I didn ' t do that or too long. About the only empowering thing I did do was have people at ichool go up to him and ask him how his sex life was. There were probably iore than 250 people that did that. I ' ve seen him since, at a party. He approached me and I completely blew . I felt really good, like I had some control for that five minutes of what wanted to do, like I had some power. " I ' m a little cold-hearted now but I think it ' s self-protection. I feel iumphant when I feel anger instead of fear. " Back then I didn ' t see what he did to me as an act of violence, but just violent sex. On my part it was an act of contrition and on his it was an act exploitation and triumph. But he made it so that I didn ' t have any choice. " I had said ' no ' and it didn ' t work so I didn ' t say ' no ' anymore. I used to :ry everyday. I don ' t get worked up over it anymore. I felt every emotion -, Tkmstf here was to feel: anger, fear, powerlessness on the lowest levels, and to great ntensities. ' + y " I had habits that I didn ' t have before.

Students often complained that important social issues and ethical questions were relegated to classroom discussions and textbook descriptions, but the AIDS issue was different. From a condom store that stressed protection from the HIV virus to movies and flyers addressing the social ramifications of the syndrome, voices were heard throughout the University and Ann Arbor community addressing the epidemic. The methods and ideas of the individuals and groups differed, but the un- derlying message was the same: AIDS is completely preventable, but only if students understand it and take necessary precautions against it. The first step, according to campus leaders and health offi- cials, was understanding AIDS and the ways the HIV virus is transmitted, and toward this goal the University participated in such campaigns as AIDS Awareness Week and National Condom Week. During the week of Valentine ' s Day, for example, vol- unteers from University Health Services distributed free condoms and information on safer sex and HIV at residence halls around campus. Students in Sociology 389, Gays and Straights in the Community, even volunteered to hand out the same information at bars around campus, " where the action is " according to co-facilitator Jenny Beck. Not all students were in agreement over the best way to prevent the virus. The College Republicans stressed that abstinence is the key to prevention. " Like many of the problems that plague modern society, AIDS has spread with a downfall of traditional morality, " said John Damoose, president of the College Republicans. Damoose and the Republicans equated this downfall with the proliferation of pre-marital and casual sex throughout society and especially on college campuses. To spread their message, the Republicans posted flyers around campus, discussed the issue at meetings and debates, and encouraged students to ask questions, and learn about the issues. Other students and community members recognized the prevalence of pre-marital sex and urged students to take necessary precautions. The owners of Condoms 10 1 , a store on South University devoted to the sale of condoms and advocacy of safer sex, claimed abstinence was the best solution but admitted that the reality of the world ' s predicament necessitated the provision of condoms and openness about the subject. Inside the store, the owners hung posters advocating abstinence and education. " There ' s a simple way to prevent AIDS, " one proclaimed. " You want to be risk-free from AIDS? Don ' t have sex. " Not everyone was convinced of the importance of the campaigns, arguing that awareness became " fashionable " after the deaths of such stars as Liberace and that AIDS research claimed funding from more deadly killers like cancer and heart disease. " It has become a big media and celebrity cause, " admitted LSA junior Arlene Olivero, " but perhaps that ' s because it ' s so easy to prevent if people just know how. " Indeed, opinions about the methods and appropriateness of all the efforts varied, but everyone agreed education and awareness were the keys to stopping the spread of the deadly virus. awareness 194 Voices Want to CURE AIDS?

In 1992, the Michigan chapter won the " Seeking the Heights " award which deemed the U-M chapter as the most outstanding Alpha Chi Omega chapter. In 1993 the chapter upheld the honor of their name by winning the " Continuing in Excellence " award. The women of Alpha Chi Omega maintained this excellence by incorporating all aspects of life at the University into the sorority. Most important, of course, were their commitments to academics, public service, families and friends. Congratulations to our SENIORS!

Greeks 199 ALPHA DELTA PHI V c mn Qood Quys Alpha Delta Phi proved to be a strong fraternity on the U-M campus and stressed its brotherhood in the various traditional activities. The fraternity was always one of the top ten competitors in intramural sports, and was known to do well in wrestling, basketball, football and swimming. Although the fraternity was a social one, its activities created a laid back atmosphere. " We are a lot of laid back good guys who enjoy a good mix of partying, school, and sports, " said Matt Tomlinson, a brother. The fraternity brothers often enjoyed playing volleyball in their front yard with music and a keg. The brothers also enjoyed playing cards and smoking cigars as they kicked back in their fraternity house on South State. An important event for the men of Alpha Delta Phi was the Walkout, during which chapter members from throughout the state got together and participated in various activities, including skydiving, rafting, or even working on their house to make it a better place to live. During the Walkouts the brothers focused on tradition as well as sacred ceremonies that bonded the men of Alpha Delta Phi together. Tomlinson recalled his favorite Walkout in the spring of 1 993, when his fraternity brothers and he piled everyone into a van and headed towards Wisconsin. The fraternity stopped in bars in remote towns and watched the Final Four games wherever they could. The tradition and brotherhood of Alpha Delta Phi was exemplified by the Senior Roast held during the winter term. The occasion was a formal dinner, where the pledges supervised all the activities and the seniors were served first. The event concluded as the graduating seniors related stories that had happened throughout their years at U-M, most of the stories ending in heartfelt laughter. The brothers of Alpha Delta Phi truly exemplified brotherhood. They just liked to be laid back and jam to the music blaring out of their stereo. - Brand i Horton 200 Greeks A big event for the guys of Alpha Delta Phi, was the Pep Rally, which had a great turnout as the spirited band stood in the yard before one of the big football games.

Co-sponsored by Alpha Tau Omega fraternity, the yearly lollipop sale represented Alpha Phi ' s most noteworthy philanthropic event. " Our lollipop sale provides the perfect opportunity to spread Valentine ' s Day love and good will and to encourage philanthropy within the Michigan Greek System, " said Jenna Levinson, LSA sophomore and Alpha Phi philanthropy chairperson. This year Alpha Phi offered free delivery of the lollipops to the fraternity and sorority houses on campus. " By providing free delivery, we were able to entice buyers who wanted to send anonymous candy-grams to their sweethearts. Ironically, the option to send a message turned out to be popular way for fraternity guys to play practical jokes on their brothers, " said Megan Lombardi, LSA junior and Alpha Phi member. For those who participated in the event, the lollipop sale proved to be an enjoyable and rewarding experience. " I really enjoyed selling lollipops this year. I considered myself to be somewhat of a romantic, so peddling heart-shaped candy seemed to come naturally to me. Plus, since I had the additional goal of snagging a Valentine for myself, the hour of people-watching in the Fishbowl served as an added perk, " said LSA sophomore Greta Grass. -Sara i Fette member Greta Grass, Sarah Mayberry, Marie Wiesinski, and Shelly Soenen cuddle for a little warmth before a party.

" Chi Omega is an education in itself, for sisterhood involves a constant and steady learning process, during which you not only learn the rituals of Chi Omega, but you also learn truths about yourself, " said Maggie Homolka, LSA sophomore and Chi Omega Personnel Chair. Other members of Chi Omega agreed that both unity and individuality were values that were crucial to sorority life. " Chi Omega is individuality and togetherness all in one, " said Heather Schuetz, LSA sophomore and Chi Omega Secretary. For other women, membership in a sorority provided them with opportunities for leadership and personal growth. " As an officer of Chi Omega, I have gained leadership skills that have strengthened me as an individual. The friendships I have made have provided me with love and support, " said Pamela Zuccker, Art School sophomore and Chi Omega President. Most members of Chi Omega conceded that friendship and sisterhood were the most treasured aspects of their sorority. " The quality and diversity of the women here at Chi Omega is one of the most amazing aspects of this house.

Hosting families with children who need hospital care, the Ronald McDonald House depended on community fund-raising and the efforts of volunteers to support its operations. Members of Alpha Delta Pi began their year-long support of the Ronald McDonald House during Halloween, by visiting the young children staying at the Ann Arbor chapter. Dressed in traditional Halloween garb, Alpha Delta Pi members carved pumpkins with the children. " Most of the kids at the house had a brother or sister at Mott ' s Children ' s Hospital. While the circumstances are hard, the kids seemed to enjoy the pumpkins and the costumes we wore, " said Laura Potts, LSA Senior and Alpha Delta Pi Philanthropy Chair. Alpha Delta Pi also assisted the families at the Ronald McDonald House by helping them with their chores on several weekends. On one occasion, Alpha Delta Pi sisters prepared a dinner for the families. " The dinner was really nice, because people seemed to appreciate it a lot. It was nice to see the smiles on people ' s faces and know that we put them there, " said Potts. In February, Alpha Delta Pi continued to support the Ronald McDonald House by hosting its annual Dating Game. As the sorority ' s most significant philanthropy event, the Dating Game took months to plan. Similar in format to the popular 1960 ' s television show, the Dating Game paired lovely bachlorettes from participating sororities with charming bachelors from various fraternities. Raising money through sponsorship funds and fraternity and sorority participation fees, the Dating Game allowed Alpha Delta Pi to make significant contributions to the Ronald McDonald House each year. Although the Dating Game required a lot of hard work and planning, Alpha Delta Pi members felt that it was an extremely worthwhile event. " We broke up into committees and planned it for months. Soliciting donations for prizes was a big project. The Dating Game was a lot of fun, though, and feeling the appreciation of the families we helped was very rewarding, " said Tracy Sinclair, LSA sophomore and Alpha Delta Pi member. By donating their time and raising money throughout the school year, the sisters of Alpha Delta Pi provided valuable support to the families of the Ann Arbor Ronald McDonald House. -Sarah Fette 206 Greeks Each year on " Bid Day, " Alpha Delta Pi ' s come together and welcome their new Alpha ' s with a celehration that marks the beginning of their new sisterhood.

Greeks 207 ALPHA GAMMA DELTA ,111 ' ' ,11 " ' III HIM ( ' Kill Will r Trusting Sisters A home is a place where one can be oneself, full of vices and virtues with loving acceptance of others; Alpha Gamma Delta was one such place. A home away from home. During the 1993-94 school year women of the 1322 Hill St. developed a greater sense of sisterhood and had a great time doing so. A major sisterhood event came in the fall of 1993. The sisters of Alpha Gamma Delta made a trip to the University of Michigan Recreation Area to take part in the Challenge Program. The activity was organized by Vice-President of Fraternity of Education Valerie Gildhaus. The event took place shortly after the induction of their beautiful new pledges. The reason for Alpha Delta ' s participation in the Challenge Program was multifaceted. First, it was a great way to spend a sunny afternoon together, before the weather and academic pressures sent everyone in different directions. Second, the program enabled the new pledges to meet many of their future sisters. And, most importantly, the sisters of Alpha Gamma Delta spent the day learning about one another by developing a bond based on trust. Trust was developed through a variety of activities which not only asked the women to take physical risks, but also emotional gambles. Through such an event, leaders, respect and strong bonds were formed. Philanthropically, the women of Alpha Gamma Delta spent their Halloween with the men of Theta Xi and the children of Pound House. This annual event ensured that everyone was in the full spirit of Halloween; men and women, parents and children were all dressed in the most creative costumes and ready for trick-or-treating through the halls of the Alpha Gamma Delta chapter house. This event gave the young children of Ann Arbor a safe and warm place to trick-or-treat with their classmates and parents. The project was a success for everyone involved. As always, the Alpha Gamma Delta Barndance was a huge success. It was an evening of square dancing, hay rides and laughter. Heidi Crowley, the engagement chairman and organizer of the event said, " Our Barndance was well-organized and all members had a great time! " Everyone looked forward to doing it again next year. Overall, 1993-94 was a great year for the sisters of Alpha Gamma Delta. The women were involved in organizations in every corner of the University and the city of Ann Arbor. The 1 993-94 academic year was filled with sisterhood, community activity and most of all fun. The sisters wished to extend the best of luck to their departing senior members, they will be missed. -Kristy Brugar member 208 Greeks Andrew and Tania cuddle up on the ride to the annual Alpha Gamma Delta Barndance.

Greeks 209 k llH 1 ' ,11 " ' Illll iini I Illlt I HUH Milt ALPHA PHI ALPHA Men of In 1906, at Cornell University, seven Black students saw the need for a source of leadership among Blacks. The heart and strength of these seven dynamic men turned the Alpha Phi Alpha organization into one of the most important and influential in history. Considering the time and place, one can see that these seven men, Henry A. Callis, Charles H. Chapman, Eugene K. Jones, George B. Kelly, Nathaniel A. Murray, Robert H. Ogle, and Vertner W. Tandy, possessed a unique quality that was uncommon at that time. Scholarship, leadership, and the love of all mankind were the ideals upon which they founded Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity. These ideals were instilled in the hearts of Alphas ever since. Alpha ' s motto, " First of All, Servant of All, We Transcend All, " was the basis of the goals and ideals exhibited by Alphas. From each local chapter and the chapters worldwide, the Alphas looked back on their beginning, and the teachings of their seven Jewels, as they continued to strive for excellence. On the tenth of April in the year 1909, three years after the inception of the national organization, Epsilon Chapter was established at the University of Michigan. The eight men who founded the chapter made up the majority of the Black male population at that time. They indeed had lofty goals: the motto for the chapter came to be " Nothing Questionable Is Acceptable. " Though many tried to duplicate the Alpha bond, it is essential to note that a concept, noble in spirit, cannot be copied. During the 1993-94 school year, the brothers of Alpha Ph i Alpha continued the tradition of excellence in the outstanding programs that they presented. To start the year off right, they held a dialogue entitled, " The Progression of the Black Collegian. " This program was designed to acquaint Black male students with Black male administrators. It also served to provide information on how to survive in college. Next, the focus shifted to Black male and female relationships. In a program entitled, " Just Kickin ' It, " the brothers worked with SAPAC and the Force For Black Women to dissolve some of the myths, and work out some of the problems that Black men and women have with each other. Then came " The Salute To African American Women. " This program highlighted the accomplishments of Black women on campus and abroad. The guest speaker, Susan Taylor, the editor-in-chief of Essence magazine, provided the audience with strong words of encouragement. On the social scene, entertainment was provided by Brick Show IV. In addition to these events, Epsilon Chapter also participated in a myriad of community service projects. It was definitely a good year for Alpha Phi Alpha as the fraternity continued to show the University community what leadership and service is all about. -Ron Jackson member 2 10 Greeks Susan Taylor, the Editor-in-Chief of Essence Magazine was featured at the Salute to African American Women.

The process, however, was much more involved than it might have appeared. Three long weeks, intense rain, heat and blistered feet were only a few of the obstacles that the rushers and rushees faced. Rush was divided into four " sets " , or parties, each with a different theme. The first set ' s theme was " Come Share Our Dreams " where the entire house was transformed to pink and white with balloons and clouds. In addition, the women all sported pink pajamas. Second sets incorporated an entirely different feel. The theme was " This Place Is a Zoo " and the Tri- Delts wore khaki shorts and t-shirts. The skit, a take-off of Bill Ted ' s Excellent Adventure explained the strong points of the sorority in the areas of academics, social events, and leadership. Third sets, a much more formal set, focused on the theme of " A Chorus Line " . The last sets, Final Desserts, were three one-hour parties where the women wore black dresses and pearls, a symbol of Tri-Delta. Most women stressed that most of all, Rush was a great chance to meet a lot of people. Bid Day was September 29, when the rushees went to the Union to pick up their bids. That evening, the new " pledges " met their new sisters on the steps of the Angell Hall. Following lots of pictures and a meal at the house, the group traveled to Burns Park for some S ' mores and a bonfire. Rush Chair Mary Begg, senior, said of the three weeks, " I thought Rush went wonderfully. We had lots of senior involvement, good weather, great enthusiasm, and great set chairs. It all worked together and got us incredible pledges! " " I think one of the best parts of Rush for me was talking to the individuals because I could really get a sense of the personalities and goals of the women and that really helped me in determining which house was best suited for me, " said Rebecca Johnson, who rushed in the fall and became a pledge at Delta Delta Delta. -Heidi Messner member Amy Ganter, Katie Soudan, Stephanie Bragg, and Brett Ellen Block horse around while setting up for first sets.

There were over 100,000 members worldwide that served the African American community daily. Some national projects included raising funds for the United Negro College Fund, National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, and Africare, a village development program. Beta Eta Chapter, chartered at the University of Michigan in 1932, celebrated the commitment of being Supreme in Service to All Mankind by engaging in service projects which enriched the African American community through programs supporting the arts, black family, economic empowerment, education, health, and world community. Fall semester was extremely busy for the members of Beta Eta. They participated in the Welcome for Women of Color, Festifall, Voter ' s Registration, the Black Greek Association ' s Annual Openhouse, AKA-demics (a study group incentive program), Halloween Spookfest in South Quad, the Africare Bucket Drive, a food, clothing, and donation drive with the Brothers of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc., Sigma Chapter in which the proceeds went towards Prospect Place, a local homeless shelter,and a Christmas Party with Sorors from Michigan State University, Western Michigan University, Grand Valley State, and Lawrence Technological University. Additionally, the women tutored at Scarlett Middle School, ushered at the Sixteenth Annual Ebony Fashion Fair Fashion Show with the Graduate Chapter, and organized a self-esteem Workshop at Huron High School. Winter Semester was equally busy with events, including the Annual Paint It Black Scholarship Performance, the Fantasy in Pink Ball, Health Week, and the AKA-demics Award Ceremony.

" The Dutch House " got its name from the rich heritage of Dutch men who lived in the house over the years. Most came from the western Michigan area, and from schools including Hope College, Calvin College, and Grand Rapids Jr. College. Many shared the same religious background and spent time helping each other grow in their faith. In earlier years, Phi Alpha Kappa was almost exclusively graduate students in medicine, dentistry, and engineering. While those fields of study were still strongly represented, the Dutch House presently had men in business, architecture, and other studies in science and arts. Every year Phi Alpha Kappa chose one or two charities to support. While the previous year ' s support went to Christian outreach programs, this year ' s focus was closer to home. The house took part in WIQB ' s Rocking for the Hungry food drive. Pledges of the house also spent time at the homeless shelter washing clothes and helping with other various jobs. Phi Alpha Kappa enjoyed many other activities during the school year including Homecoming Days for alumni, Christmas parties, intramural sports, canoeing and whirlyball. But the house ' s two annual parties broug ht attention from other students at Michigan. The fall " Beacon Bash " was highlighted with a spotlight in the front yard showing the way to the house and for the spring " Reno Night " the house was converted into a mini casino allowing those who attended a chance to try their hands at gambling. -Steve DeHorn President A Phi Alpha Kappa pledge group hegins a scavenger hunt at the Cuhe. 216 Greeks ' " Tveryyear Tfd tpha ' Kappa chose one or two charities to support " I For the second year in a row, Phi Alpha Kappa was in the IM Football Championship at the Oosterbaan Fieldhouse.

The first of these is our 8 p.m. curfew for young women who make their way into the hallowed halls of Deke. This allows for the needed quiet time between the active members of the house. We do, however, make exceptions to this policy with our noteworthy gatherings. At this time female guests can be guaranteed fresh beverages, relaxing music, and of course quality time with Deke brothers. Along the same lines, we believe in strong hospitality for outsiders of the house. Since the founding of Deke all beer distributors have been befriended and given the utmost respect. Next, we care about the Greek system as a whole. Such love for the IFC cannot be written in words, but rather felt in our hearts. Lastly, we feel our fraternity is focused on pure fun and enjoyment. This usually does mean one type of ruckus or another, but to date there were no pending charges by the Ann Arbor Police Department.

They were also her biggest role models, although she knew for certain that she didn ' t want to follow in their occupational footsteps. She wanted something different, but wasn ' t quite sure what it would be. During her first year, Campana determined that the Busi- ness School could secure a path towards an exciting career. " I knew it would be the best way to get a job after graduation, " said Campana, " and I was also attracted to the school ' s personalized and focused programs. " With intense competition, Campana worked diligently in her core requirement classes, Accounting and Economics. " I prioritized my time and studied hard, " said Campana. " I set high goals and met them. " Campana ' s efforts paid off when she was accepted into the Business School in the winter of 1992 and entered the program the following fall. Although she immediately felt comfortable in the Business School ' s tight-knit atmosphere, Campana also sensed the competi- tive intensity. " Suddenly I was in classes full of students who were all used to being at the top. I had to make sacrifices to stay competitive, but didn ' t want to kill myself. I eventually reached a balance, " said Campana. Part of Campana ' s balance included her involvement in Delta Sigma Pi, a co-ed professional business fraternity. She served as president of her pledge class and participated in several social and professional functions. Fall semester senior year brought Campana ' s final chal- lenge: the job search. Through the Business School ' s on-campus recruitment program, Campana interviewed two or three times a week for the entire semester. She was hoping to work for a medium- sized company with a positive environment and considered accept- ing an offer from a consulting firm in Chicago. " I kept my job search focus fairly broad and just explored to see what was out there, " said Campana. " I was more interested in the environment of the com- pany than a specific name or position. " As of January, Campana was still considering all her options and excited about the prospects of the future. Campana hoped to eventually return to graduate school to get an MBA in Marketing. -Lisa K.

" Place she would most like to visit- Cancun, Mexico What she will miss most about Ann Arbor- " Nowhere will I ever find as many people my age in one place. " It all started in the beginning of her junior year. Wendy P. Stevens went to her academic peer advisory class where she was asked to participate in one of those wonderful ice breakers. In this particular activity, she had to write an adjective starting with each letter of her name that would describe her personality. For the " W " , she thought long and hard and decided to pencil in " Wild! " Prior to that poi nt in her life, Wendy was everything except wild. So her description was more of a dream rather than a reality. This was her way of throwing out her serious self and starting her new lifestyle. Her crazy side truly came out during spring break later on that year. In Cancun, " They had the coolest dance clubs! I WENT NUTS! " While boogying the night away at one of these fabulous clubs, Wendy spontaneously entered the silhouette dance contest. Given a bathing suit and one minute to show the audience what she had to offer, Wendy let loose and busted out with her sexy moves. Because of her guts and talent, she came home with first place, $500, a t-shirt, and a bottle of champagne. A while after that exciting evening, one of her friends from the trip asked, " How ' s WILD WENDY doing? " When she heard the word wild associated to her very own name, she said, " I thought that it was the coolest thing! It was great how it seemed to connect with the beginning of the year. I had finally achieved my goal! " This new way of life also helped her in school. " I relaxed academically. I started doing more in my life which made me a lot happier. I would just say, ' Ah, good enough ' because there were other things I wanted to do. " Because this attitude relieved some of the pressure she had placed upon herself, Wendy even four-pointed during that semester! From Wendy ' s experience, she had learned that people need to find a good medium between their serious and wild half. Her advice to others is to " GO FOR IT! Noone is going to do it but yourself!

It was the key to Mario ' s decision in pursuing international affairs as his double degree concentration of Economics and Japanese. Being chosen to participate in this prestigious program involved a highly selective process. It pulled students from all over the United States, including those from the top Ivy League schools, and was geared towards students who were interested in the Japanese field and wanted an " intense program. The center was " a cut above the rest. " Mario said. " It is known for its academic vigor. Most of our time was spent studying. We only had one day out of the week for free time. " In the little leisure time Mario had, there was so much he wanted to experience. " Living in Kyoto.there is a lot to do in the evening. It ' s the cultural heart of Japan. There are bars, dance clubs, cafe ' s, movie theatres and restaurants. " Along with these attractions, Mario also wanted to travel which was made easy with Japan ' s transportation system. " What ' s cool about Kyoto is you have no car. There ' s this incredible transportation system. Here you need a car to get everywhere. It ' s very convenient there. " His time in Japan was an eye-opener for him. " It made me realize how little I knew about the Japanese culture, politics... There is a wealth of information out there. " This motivated Mario to get more involved with his academics. His advice to others is, " There ' s a lot out there and so much to be learned.

" " You just have to go with it when you ' re young. " Al- though this sounds good in theory to most of us, Jeff Rosenberg actually took it to heart. During the winter of his senior year, Jeff and a few of his friends spontaneously formed a rock band, calling themselves Violet Wine. " All of a sudden we decided we wanted to put together a band. We got together in March of my senior year, practiced for a week, and started playing gigs at parties soon after. " Jeffs early interest in music arose after a close family friend showed him a synthesizer and told him to get to work. " It was a cheesy little machine. I think it played " Greensleaves " and " You are the Sunshine of My Life. " Who would have guessed that ten years later Jeff would have recorded his first album and started his own business, " Mystery Machine Studio, " a recording studio in the basement of the lead singer ' s house? Jeff cited Stephen Rush, jazz pianist and head of compo- sition in the Dance Department, as his greatest influence. Ex- plained Jeff, " He taught me to always keep an open mind to new music and ideas. He acknowledges perseverance and really appre- ciates the effort that you put into your work. " According to Jeff, one of the greatest things about Ann Arbor is that you " never need an excuse to meet people. It ' s so easy to find others with common interests. " And for all of those out there with dreams of making it big in the music world, Jeff offers this advice: " Be as individualistic and creatively different as you can. Take the road less traveled. And most of all, boring music must die! " " Divya Aground 236 Graduates Theodore C.

Collens-Engineering I 1 244 Graduates I Carol Sue Pintek Imagine the University of Michigan with eleven o ' clock curfews, day-long registration waits, and hippies hanging out on South University. This was the way of life for Carol Sue Pintek when she first came to U-M in 1 964- Graduating in 1 969 with a degree in Journalism, Carol " just never wanted to leave " , and ended up a perpetual student at the University. Almost thirty years later, Carol graduated with a second degree, this time in Three-Dimensional Design and Metalworking. The first time around, Carol came to the University of Michigan on a National Merit Scholarship and lived at Jordan Hall (now called Mosher-Jordan) during her freshman and sophomore years. At the time, all of the hill dorms were occupied by women, and East and West Quads housed the men. " We had to be back by eleven on weeknights, but we were allowed to stay out until midnight on weekends. " Despite all the rules, the women still found plenty of ways to have fun: " Our house mom would have had a fit if she knew about all the things that we did! " Carol has kept in touch with many of the close friends she made at Jordan Hall. " A lot has changed since I was here the first time, " reflected Carol. " Back then, students seemed to be much more interested in the actual subject, not just their grades in the class. It was all about finding out what you really wanted to do in life, not just getting a job. Unfortunately, people I tended to break a lot of barriers back then, but didn ' t always replace them with things they could actually use. Carol ' s activities and interests had changed dramatically by the time she got her second degree. Besides being a student at U-M, Carol also exhibited her metalwork and worked at the Bentley 1 Historical Library, the archives for the state of Michigan. Because of her interest in historical documents, Carol is a member of the Guild of Book Workers and is working towards being a restorative bookbinder. In retrospect, Carol Pintek felt fortunate to have been a pan of the University of Michigan mduring two such radical periods, the sixties and the nineties. " One thing I found so amazing about both I j times is the way in which people united for a cause. Then and now, if the students put their minds to lit it, they really had to power to make an impact.

" Graduates 245 Trevin Rard Major: Communications Hometown: Blanchard, Michigan Favorite classes: Public Speaking, History of U-M, and Handbells Residence Hall first-year: Couzens Story behind her name: " My dad made it up! " Some of Trevin Rard ' s activities as a student involved shopping at the mall, walking around campus, and swimming at the Central Campus Recreation Building. Sometimes she even baked cookies. These were not her extracurricular activities, but rather her academic responsibilities as a Big Sibling for one of the Psychol- ogy Department ' s Project Outreach programs. Each semester, Rard was a " Big Sis " for a child in the community and planned four hours of activities a week. Rard was involved in the program for three semesters and had a girl " Little Sib " each time. Her last " Little Sib " was a five year-old from a single- parent home. Rard enjoyed her role as " Big Sis " and was thankful for an opportunity to learn about family situations different from her own. " I ' m from a small town and really didn ' t know how other people lived, " said Rard. " Now I ' m more aware of more people ' s perspectives. " For Rard, the biggest challenge was to get to know the " Little Sib. " They ' re happy to have someone to spend time with, but they know it ' s only for four months, " said Rard. " That makes it difficult for both sides. " Focusing on these and other issues, Rard was a discussion facilitator for the program, leading a group of eight " Big Sibs " each week. " It gave us a chance to discuss our ups and downs with our ' Little Sibs, ' " said Rard. Rard ' s involvement in the Big Siblings program give her the experience to prepare for her long-term career goal: elementary education. Rard, who didn ' t want to enroll in U-M ' s School of Education, hoped to take a year or two off and then return to a different school to pursue an education degree. Nantucket was Rard ' s first post-graduation destination. She worked there two summers in a t-shirt shop and cleaning houses. Describing Nantucket as " an ideal pretend world, " Rard looked forward to spending time with friends and possibly working as a nanny to continue her contact with children. Lisa K.

Dearworth-Biology 248 Graduates Allyson Silver From " don ' t mix darks with whites " to " study hard, " all parents give their children some sort of advice before they leave for college. The advice Allyson Silver ' s parents gave her became one of the most important pearls of wisdom she learned. " They encouraged me to take advantage of the opportunities I would have here in college, " said Silver. They told her not to worry too much about getting perfect grades, but rather to enjoy herself. " I sometimes think it was both the best and worst advice. " She followed the advice her parents gave her for the most part, and tried to approach school from a positive, relaxed perspective, making the most of every experience. This philosophy is one reason why Silver enjoyed her semester abroad in Tel Aviv, Israel. Although her classes were in English, she still was able to experience culture in the Middle East. " We also spent two weeks in Turkey, " explained Silver. " We had to watch what clothes we wore, and there was no indoor plumbing. " Silver felt that through making the most of her experience abroad, she became more independent and self-sufficient. Upon leaving the University, Silver hoped to continue with the attitude her parents instilled in her as by seeking a job in copy writing. However, she has no illusions that her success will come without hard work. " It will be difficult for our generation to surpass our parents ' accomplishments and economic position, " she claimed. Despite her excitement in graduating, Silver will miss some aspects of Michigan. " I ' ll miss living with my best friends and being surrounded by peers with common goals.

" a small boy yells from across the pool before plunging into the water. " Excellent David! " cheers his instructor with an beaming smile. Kristy Brugar began teaching swimming at the Ann Arbor YMCA in August 1 99 1 and quickly became a valuable asset to the Ann Arbor community. Teaching everything from water aerobics to preschool swimming to arthritis, Brugar ' s consistent enthusiasm and love for swimming spread to her students. " 1 have enjoyed being part of the Ann Arbor community, " said Brugar, " The people are very open and they ' re willing to bring you into their lives. " Brugar ' s previous teaching experience was in her hometown of Plymouth, Michigan where she created an aquatics program. When she came to the Ann Arbor " Y, " she faced new challenges. " I was used to dealing with mostly ' country club ' kids, " said Brugar, " In Ann Arbor it ' s different. There are homeless children and privileged children all in the same class. 1 have learned to understand people with backgrounds different from my own. " Brugar cited her strengths as warmth, enthusiasm, a firm control over her classes, and a positive r eport with her students. Brugar ' s students respected her and found joy in her classes. Realizing her influential position, Brugar strove to be a positive role model for her students. " They see that I ' m excited and enjoy swimming and soon they ' re just as enthusiastic. " Though she believed her teaching experience gave her the confidence to assert her abilities in other areas of her life, Brugar focused more on the happiness teaching brought to her life. " Most of all, I just have fun! " Brugar hoped that her valuable leadership skills and positive attitude would also help her with her post-graduation responsibilities with the Peace Corps. -- Lisa K.

" I could tell a freshman a few things, " said Kolessar. Kolessar found out that there was a lot more to college than simply expanding one ' s knowledge in a particular field of study and gaining the basic foundations of a liberal arts curriculum. She determined that there were certain things a student should know that could make the college experience a less stressful and more beneficial one. " I ' ve come up with some words to live by, " said Kolessar. " They ' re really true. They really work. Trust me. " Kolessar believed that utilizing the University ' s resources was important to a student ' s success. " Visit your professors. They ' re great people, " said Kolessar. " A visit during office hours can really pay off. " However, Kolessar ' s favorite resource was the University ' s informa- tion-line, which she swore was a gift straight from heaven. " Those people know everything about everything! It ' s incredible! Every time I call them, no matter what the question, they always know the answer. " And there is more. Kolessar had a formula to ensure a student functions at his or her optimal point of productivity. " Keepbusy. Get involved. The more you take on, the more you will get done. Work, join clubs, stay active. " But, on the flip side of this, Kolessar believed students needed breaks too. " I finally resolved not to do homework on Saturdays. I don ' t crack open a single book. It ' s my day. School gets my all the other six days of the week. " Kolessar ' s last words of wisdom, though they were already prac- ticed by many students, may be difficult for most to consider practical advice. However, Kolessar insisted that putting off homework was perfectly harmless. " Go ahead. Procrastinate. It will get done. Really, procrastination is not such a bad thing. " Graduating with a beaming transcript and plans to go on to graduate school, Barbi Kolessar was living proof that there most certainly was some truth to her words of wisdom.

Don ' t be afraid to take risks. Plans after graduation: Law school, theatre school, job Place she wants to visit: Paris Sina Lewis graduated from the University hoping to find a career as an entertainment reporter. " I can see myself in broadcast journalism working for Entertainment Tonight or in radio, " she said. But like many seniors, Sina really wasn ' t sure exactly what she wanted to do. No, she didn ' t spend $40,000 plus for nothing, and she said she might use her unique double concentration and go to law school to pursue a career in entertainment law. But whatever she decided, Sina said she enjoyed her four years at Michigan. When her studies weren ' t top priority, Sina spent her time getting involved in activities at the Martha Cook Building (MCB). Sina said her most memorable experience living there occurred during one of the MCB socials, the Casa Blanca Dance, when she had to become the disc jockey for the night. " The d.j. was so bad, " she said. " He was up in people ' s rooms all night. " But Sina enjoyed spinning the records that night. As president of the House Board in MCB her senior year, Sina handled problems other residents had and helped plan the social calendar. During her junior year, Sina spent time working as a tour guide and leading campus tours for the Student Alumni Council. Sina said she often frequented Club X and The Wherehouse, two Detroit nightclubs, on the weekends. Although her parents didn ' t like her " hangin " out " in Detroit at night, Sina said she loved to go there and dance. But the rap and soul music that ' s played in these was a far genre from the classical music Sina loved to listen to at home. " J.B.

Yet he didn ' t take long to overcome the size of the school and get involved in an astounding array of organizations. Sweeney believed that participating in these groups was the key to establishing relationships and building his leadership skills. Not only was Sweeney an active member of the fraternity Delta Chi, he also served as a representative to the Inter Fraternity Council (IFC) and as chairman of both the Fraternities of Excellence Committee and the Social Responsibility Committee. These groups taught him how to work in a group and as the head of a group. " As the president of my fraternity, I had my own little corporation. I had to handle public relations for the house, a budget, establish a group vision, and settle differences among members, " said Sweeney. Throughout all of his involvement, however, Sweeney felt the most important thing he learned was being an " inclusive leader. " He was involved in SODC, and learned a great deal from Tammy Goodstein, the woman in charge of the center. " She is female and Jewish, so she let me see the importance of approaching people with more than just my own perspective in mind, " explained Sweeney. He appreciated the opportunities that Michigan gave him, and felt that the caliber of students at the school allowed him to be happy with his own personal achievements. " I have no ' be-the-best ' complex, " said Sweeney with a laugh. " I have an inner competition with myself, not with other people.

" What she will miss most about Ann Arbor- the atmosphere and friends Favorite Class- Reproductive Endocrinology with Dr. Foster Role Model-Dr. Mindy Smith As one of the founding members of the Hindu Students Council, Viraj Parikh found her undergraduate years at U-M a tremendous experience. As an anthropology zoology major, Viraj hoped to eventually pursue a medical career. While taking classes, Viraj was also active in research and volunteer work at the U-M hospital. She did a survey project with a family practitioner, Dr. Mindy Smith, whom she cited as her inspira- tion. This Associate Professor in the Medical School had cancer in her leg and decided to amputate it to assure that the cancer wouldn ' t spread. Although she is now disabled, she is " the most cheerful, optimistic, and energetic person. She cares so much for others. " This is one of the factors that led Viraj to taking steps towards medical school. Before attending medical school, Viraj hopes to take a year off to travel. Perhaps to India where she has relatives or to Germany where she has a penpal that she had been in touch with since 6th grade! In any case, Viraj will hop onto that bandwagon to medical school somewhere down the line. Originally from Plymouth, MI, she recently moved to Houston, Texas. Although she grew up in the area and was already familiar with the Ann Arbor area, she said, " I love the atmosphere of places that have history. This is such a college town, somewhere where you can never be bored. " " Before coming to U-M, I was very naive and immature about a lot of things. Since coming here, I have learned a lot. I have changed images of ethnicities and I am now more aware of social concerns, such as sexual assault. " Sandy Yueh 264 Graduates Clayton S. Mann-Chemistry Jeffrey S.

Explained Katherine, " After graduation, I would love to work on public policy at a large university as diverse as this one. " Throughout her four years at U-M, Katherine participated in a variety of activities which helped rein- force her interest in student affairs. She spent one year as a resident advisor at Mosher-Jordan, two years as a Summer Orientation leader, and three years as a Campus Day leader. Katherine was also an active member in the Undergraduate Political Science Organization and in the Residence Hall Association. Through her many extracurricular activities, Katherine was able to experience firsthand the great diversity of the University. " I met so many different kinds of people, " said Katherine of her experiences. " Especially after Orientation, students would come up to hug and thank me, which was surprising since I had only known them for a few days! " According to Katherine, the most interesting part of her job was being able to get an " inside view " of U-M as well as other universities. Through the Residential Hall Association, Katherine traveled to places such as South Carolina, North Dakota and Arizona to learn about ways to improve community living in the dorms. A dream come true for Katherine would be if the faculty and students of the University could switch places for just one day. " It would be great if the staff could truly experience what it is like to be in the classroom setting once again. They tend to see the University as a business, but sometimes they forget that the customer is always right and that we do have the choice to go elsewhere. " Katherine plans to use her insight to help make changes in the way universities develop and execute student policies. Said Katherine, " You can always find something that needs improving at the University. It ' s good for people to be able to voice their opinions and know that they will be heard.

Organizations: Delta Upsilon, Abeng Carlos said his fours years at the University were the best years of his life. During this time he grew to be more responsible and well-rounded. Carlos was involved in many activities during his stay at Michigan. He worked as switchboard operator for the Undergraduate Admissions office, played on the Michigan Water Polo team, tutored students in Spanish and even led tours of the Ann Arbor Hands-on Museum. But joining Delta Upsilon fraternity, Carlos said, was his most positive experience. He loved the football games and the parties he went to with his fraternity brothers. " I loved to hang out at Rick ' s on Monday nights for the $ 1 pitchers, " he said. But Carlos did more than just party; he also became interested in the art of movie making. " My favorite class I ' ve taken was Communications 320 with Professor Frank Beaver, " Carlos said. " I learned a lot about films and became great friends with Professor Beaver. " Carlos ' friendship with Profes- sor Beaver led him to declare Communications as his major and study abroad in London where he worked on a film. Carlos even starred in and directed a few campus films and commercials his junior and senior year. He plans to submit a script to some Hollywood producers in hopes he will be discovered. When Carlos wasn ' t busy making films he often escaped during the holiday breaks on road trips. He and his roommate drove to Texas, Mexico, and South Padre Island in a Ford Escort for Spring Break his sophomore year. The following year they drove the same car down to New Orleans for Mardi Gras. Carlos said the roadtrips were representative of the freedom he enjoyed at the University. " That ' s what I ' ll miss most about Michigan, " he said. -J.B.

Deana said she used her four years at the University to find herself. After living in Couzens Residence Hall her first year, the Middle Eastern and North African studies major found guidance and companionship in the Islamic Circle. Deana said the Islamic Circle helped her find herself through enlighten- ment. " Being around other Islamic students helped me find my identity as an Islamic woman, " she said. " The more I followed, the more I learned about myself. " Unlike other students whose social life consisted of going to parties and drinking, Deana did not enjoy that social scene. Instead, hanging out at cappuccino restaurants with friends and driving in her car with the music blasting thrilled Deana. She said she enjoyed this more than drinking. Deana said she found fulfillment staying within Islamic guidelines. Her religion dictated that she not go to parties or bars or get involved in pre- marital relationships. But Deana ' s strong belief in her religion empowered her to help others. She became a political activist pushing for governmental action in the Bosnian issue. Deana helped organize rallies and fund-raising events and worked with other students to contact members of congress. Her daily life was a little different from that of other students, but Deana still enjoyed some of the same activities as her fellow students. One particular event that always made it onto Deana ' s social calendar was the Saturday football game at Michigan Stadium. -J.B.

Rebecca, from West Bloomfield, Michigan, said she hated everything about MSU. The psychology major explained that she did not like the campus or the students at MSU. " The campus is too big, it ' s hard to get classes and the students are unmotivated about school, " she said. " They ' re just trying to get by. " Rebecca also noted that MSU students weren ' t as worried about their grades as students at U-M seemed to be; she said the students at East Lansing only cared about " getting wasted. " A smaller, more diverse campus and a more realistic atmosphere were other reasons why Rebecca chose to transfer to Michigan. Rebecca went to Michigan State in the first place because she " wanted to try something different. " Rebecca emphasized that she was happy with her decision to come to the University. Even though she was a transfer student, she found her niche right away, overcoming the isolation many transfers feel. As a member of Alpha Zeta Delta sorority Rebecca met many of her best friends, and she said she especially enjoyed the time she spent going to fraternity date parties. Rebecca could be found at Ashley ' s any night of the week no, she wasn ' t partying every night, she worked as a waitress. She said she really enjoyed the people she met at the restaurant and one night even enjoyed a surprise serenade from the Friars. Rebecca said she will miss friends and her college lifestyle the most. She especially looked forward to Fridays at O ' Sullivan ' s where she and her friends listened to the music of Jerry Sprague. Rebecca said she left the University a bit wiser than when she entered. " I ' ve grown up but not all the way, " she said. " I now have a lot more respect for my education. " --J.B.

Yoko Ogasawara, LSA student from Battle Creek, MI, was faced with a dilemma like this when she studied abroad in Kyoto, Japan during her junior year. Ogasawara grew up speaking Japanese in her home and had visited Japan several times, but living there on her own for a year was a unique and trying experience. Like most students who study abroad, she missed the friendships she had at school and missed her family, but Ogasawara also had to adjust to being a Japanese-American in Japan. " I had to deal with both identities at the same time, " she explained. " The Japanese citizens didn ' t always understand that even though I was Japanese, I was also an American and was friends with the other Americans there. The two cultures are very different, so they sometimes clashed. " Ogasawara had no complaints, however, about the way she was treated while living there. She said the people in Kyoto were very friendly and interested in the American culture, so building friendships was not difficult. After graduation, Ogasawara planned on studying in France for awhile before trying to break into the Japanese media. She will have to work twice as hard being a woman in that industry, but she felt she ' s up to the challenge due to the preparation the University gave her. Overall, she accepted that she can appreciate both cultures without molding herself to belong to just one. " I think I ' ve had the best of both worlds, " Ogasawara claims.

As the MTS coordinator of the Society of Physics Students and the Michigan Review, Elek found that his position was far from just a title. While working with the Michigan Review, he discussed various positions on political issues through Computer Conferencing (Confer) on MTS. As Elek began to disagree and argue about different ideas on Confer, he realized that his attitudes and opinions were changing. " I ' ve become more philosophical, " said Elek of his experiences here at Michigan. " There are a lot of different people here with different opinions that I never thought about. Now I try to take these ideas into account. " Politically, he feels that his opinions are relative to the group he is with because he tries to approach an issue from multiple angles. As a result of the many debates on MTS, Elek claimed he became more apolitical. " Political bickering has kind of turned me off. " For this reason, Elek planned to stick with Physics and continue in school toward his doctorate degree. Perhaps his frustration with politics was the reason for his most unusual ambition. " I ' d like to colonize Mars. Some of the ways society does things need to change, and so perhaps the best way is to start from scratch. " Elek said that all he needs is a partner to handle the business affairs. --Rachel Anderson f 288 Graduates Craig Melegari-Economics Marjorie de Leo Mendoza-Anthropology- Zoology Nicole Merritt-Psychology Glen R.

Steve started in goal for the Michigan hockey team for four years, and during his college career earned many awards and honors for himself and the team. Even though Steve was recruited by the NHL Buffalo Sabres hockey team as a freshman, he was still just an ordinary college student. And even after setting an NCAA record his senior year for being the most winningest college goalie, Steve carried on as usual, playing hockey for his team, not for recognition. With a daily schedule that consisted of early morning classes every term, hockey practice until six and study table after that, how could he have much time for any other social activities? Free time was indeed scarce, but Steve did find time during the year to participate in the Drug Awareness and Resistance Education ( D. A.R.E. ) program at local public schools. In many ways, Steve maintained a lifestyle just like other students. He lived with other hockey players on White street and had to cook his own food and wash his own dishes. During holidays though, Steve usually couldn ' t go home like other students; instead, he stayed in Ann Arbor practicing with the hockey team for the Great Lakes Invitational hockey tournament. But Steve didn ' t mind. He loved hockey. He loved it so much that he became the only hockey player to be voted Most Valuable Player two years in a row for the GLI. Steve attributed much of his success to Michigan hockey coach Red Berenson. " Red made us feel like we belong. " Steve said. " He made us believe in ourselves. " Since his first year living in West Quad, Steve matured into a student as well as an athlete, and although he said he will miss his friends when he leaves Ann Arbor, he was eager to work and continue playing hockey after graduation.

MI f UN Hometown: Rochester Hills What she will miss about U of M: the closeness of friends all being on campus and FOOTBALL! Interesting residence hall experience: Having her picture posted all over her dorm with the caption " If you like what you see, call Trixie " printed underneath it . Loves to: Go two-steppin ' Favorite musical artist: Garth Brooks Favorite college memory: Mardi Gras Memorable event: meeting Alan Shepard (first American in space) Biggest accomplishment: graduating! Tricia Mack had a bright future ahead of her. The greatest thing she has done during her time here at the University of Michigan was applying for the NASA co-oping position at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas. Although she was not originally one of the two candidates chosen by Michigan, Tricia was not going to give up that easily. She told herself, " Don ' t take ' NO ' for an answer! " People warned her that there was no other way to get in except through Michigan ' s engineering department. But, her determination and love for Aerospace engineering proved them wrong. By directly applying for the opening and showing NASA she not only had the necessary volunteering experience, but the capability to do the job right, she was offered the position almost immediately. For the first semester on the job, a department was assigned to her. For the next two terms, however, Tricia interviewed for her first choice of departments, the Extravehicular Activities department (EVA). Once offered the position, she was more excited than ever. She said, " Getting the co-op at NASA was a dream come true. Not only did I work at NASA, but I also worked in EVA! " EVA is the " Space walk " where she trained the astronauts to walk in space. Along with EVA, Tricia also worked in " Mission Control " where astronauts learned to be flight controllers through simulations. By having the crew view a sample of the trip through monitors, the overseers would cause an emergency to occur to teach the astronauts what to do in panic situations. The Johnson Space Center prepared Tricia for her future and taught her more about herself. The NASA co-oping position has made her a more confident person, set her in the right direction and made her more optimistic about her future. It has given her the right experience to pursue what she loves: Aerospace. 292 Graduates fflfi Patricia R.

Tracy Robinson As the first female editor of the Michigan Review, Tracy Robinson contributed her share to the politics at the University. As a political science major, she actively participated in campus politics since her sophomore year. Tracy was part of the Michigan Student Assembly and was reelected for a second term during her senior year. She claimed that campus politics " have been pretty dead " and there is still room for improvement. " In general, the bureaucracy on this campus sucks. " Not only was Tracy politically active, she participated in crew because it " relieved tension " . She also loved to sing and was involved in the Arts Chorale. She was extremely busy but felt that her extracurricular activities were important. " [They] are important to meet people and aide in time management. Sports helped to focus my time. " Originally from Worthington, Ohio, she felt like she was the black sheep of the family. Practically her whole high school went to Ohio State, her parents went to OSU, and her sibling also goes to OSU! ! So who did her parents root at the homecoming game? OSU of course, but when it came to crew, they rooted for Tracy. Although Tracy had come to U of M for her undergraduate studies, she planned to attend OSU for graduate school in political theory. When asked if she was going to do the nude mile with the rest of the crew team?

Marie, Michigan Major: Kinesiology-Movement Science Favorite Class: MVS 110 Favorite Food: Any Freshman Year Dorm: West Quad His ambition was high and his future was bright. Chris " Gordo " Gordon was a man of many facets. He was known by all Michigan hockey fans and buffs as a goalie on the Michigan hockey team. His accomplish- ments with the team were great, but what most people didn ' t know about Gordo is that what drove him was his inner peace with himself. Chris, who is a Native American Indian, a fact known only by few, had a different philosophy about life that guided him through his daily living. " When I first came here, I hid all of my Indian beliefs. I really hid them. " Since his freshman year, Gordo had a new understanding of the way people at the University view Native Americans and their culture. " I ' ve learned not to hide any personal beliefs I may have and to accept things as they happen. If people don ' t like me for who I am, then they probably wouldn ' t be good friends anyway. " Chris credited his grandmother for helping him learn to appreciate his culture. " She basically raised nine kids on her own, supported them and installed that pride into all of us. " And with that pride for his culture, Gordo spent a lot of his spare time hand-crafting regalia, traditional Indian dance clothes that are worn by Native Americans at pow wows and other cultural celebrations. Chris also used his time away from hockey to work on his pride and joy: his truck. " I like working on my truck and playing video games sometimes. " Gordo ' s contribution to the Michigan hockey team was appreciated by all. But it was his senior year where he was needed most and he stepped up to the challenge. Playing most games as a back-up to Steve Shields, Gordo had the chance to prove himself to his teammates and to the world that he could fill the shoes of the starting goalie who was injured early in the season. He must ' ve done well because Michigan did not lose any of those games. And Chris had one of the lowest goals against averages in the CCHA. After graduation Gordo made plans that would ensure a comfortable future. " I just want to play (hockey) somewhere where they are going to use me. Then I want to go to PT (physical therapy) school eventually. " Chris wanted to continue playing hockey in the professional league before school and earn enough money to put himself through PT school so that he could live prosperously in Sault Ste. Marie afterwards. -J.B.

This is the dream of many high school hockey stars. But for David Jliver this was no dream. He made it reality and then some. Not only did Dave see his dream of playing hockey for the University of lichigan come true, he also secured his chance to play professional hockey len he was drafted into the NHL to play for Edmonton. Thinking back to his first year at Michigan four years ago, Dave (or Oli as is called by his teammates) remembers the ' good old days ' when he lived iith eight other hockey players on third floor of Adams house in West Quad. Uter everyone on our floor moved out it was just us hockey players left. We |fok the wood from their thrown- out lofts and made a miniature golf course. e played holes from one end of the hall to the other. That was crazy. " Since then Dave has grown up and moved out of West Quad and into a Duse with his teammates Brian Wiseman, Steve Shields and Mike Stone, ley ' ve lived together for the last three years and Dave really values their |endship. " We ' ve developed a very close relationship over the last four years, atside of hockey, that ' s the most important thing to me. Four years ago we in ' t know each other and now we ' re best friends. " Dave was voted assistant captain of the hockey team his senior year. The ic year he was voted Most Valuable Player of the Great Lakes Invitational :key Tournament. For most of his senior season, Dave led the Central allegiate Hockey Association in most points. There are too many accom- Ishments to name here, but Dave credits all of his successes in hockey to his pily. " My whole family never forced me to do anything. They just jpported me in everything I did. " When Dave wasn ' t playing hockey, he could often be found hanging out Ith his housemates watching television in their living room. " That ' s all we [ve time for. But I like going to Showcase and watching movies. " Dave says 5 favorite movie is A few Good Men. " I like the actors and actresses in it. It ' s |;reat story. " Many student athletes find it hard to have time for athletics, academics | d a social life yet alone have time to hold a job. But Dave found time to do all and held jobs while he was at the University. " I worked one summer at (iff Keen Arena and the next summer I worked the front counter at The Mail Lppe. " Dave says he ' ll miss his friends and housemates when he leaves the Diversity. But if he could change one thing about Ann Arbor before he ves he said it would definitely be the parking situation. " Although I ' ve only Id a car here for one year, I can ' t get a parking spot. I think there ' s a meter pid or meter man for every student at the University. " --J.B.

" This was the most valuable thing that Carrie Stillson learned outside of the classroom. Aftei doing so well in high school, getting her first " C " at Michigan was a crushing blow to her college expectations. She had to come to grips with the fact that " everyone at this school is smart. " Eventually, Stillson realized that grades were not the most important thing in life or even in her education. " Grades have not reflected the knowledge I ' ve gained both in and outside of the classroom, " she said. " If I get the ' A, ' that ' s great, but I ' m not going to kill myself. " Stillson wished that the University would concentrate more on creating well-roundec individuals. " Some people have no life outside of classes and studying, " said Stillson. She feels that she has learned much more about herself and other people through extracurricular and community involvement. Being involved in intramural soccer for four years straight allowed her to meet several people as did her job in the Mary Markley dormitory. She also tutored a student from Pioneer High School which allowed her to build a unique friendship. Her close friendship with Sarah, a girl she met at orientation, has definitely taught her things about human relationships that she never could have learned in a class. Stillson felt that education is not limited to or measured by studying and good grades. " Some people will get an ' A ' in school, but a ' D ' in life.

Svedberg-Engineering 314 Graduates Erin Himstedt When Erin Himstedt decided to study gender and race relations in American and French history, she realized she would have to learn more than names and dates. " Social history means understanding how people interact, how they work out or exacerbate differences, and all the tensions and prejudices that influence the events you read about in history books. " Erin recognized that many of these feelings and problems still existed throughout the country and on the U-M campus, and thus throughout her undergraduate career she sought to balance intensive classroom study with a sensitive understanding of the University community and its social dynamics. Erin recognized the danger of isolating herself from the community by writing two honors theses in history and French during her senior year. " It ' s not like spending an hour or two on an assignment and then moving on to something else, " she said. " You have to become a part of the person or event you ' re researching so it can start to dominate your time and thoughts. " But Erin always fought against this kind of closed-mindedness, so she also sought to understand other people and educate students about the complexities and problems of modern race relations. During her senior year, for example, she co-facilitated a dialogue group between students from different ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds. " With all the rhetoric about PC and harrassment I think people are afraid to ask questions and explore their own beliefs and opinions, " she said. " I just wish people would realize that we all have a lot to learn about ourselves and other people, and the only way to learn is to ask questions, admit and correct misconceptions, and learn from each other. " Erin hoped to continue studying social history and such problems as immigration, foreign relations, and gender studies in graduate school. But although she was well-qualified to study at the best schools in the country, she refused to confine herself to libraries and an isolated academic life. " Modern society can help you understand history as much as history can help you understand modern society, " she said. " Each compliments the other and neither should be studied in isolation.

Scott Fitzgerald Favorite Movie: La Femme Nikita Role Model: James Herriot What Ske ' ll Miss About Ann Arbor: Ann Arbor itself with the integration of the community and the University. Favorite Library: The Grad because she studied there the most Natalie Depcik definitely left her mark at the University of Michigan. From volunteering for S.W.A.T. Hunger, where she fed homeless people once a month at the First Baptist Church, to participating on a IM Softball team, where she played hard and had fun, Natalie did it all. Her greatest time commitment was with APO, the University ' s service fraternity. " The biggest thing that I was involved with at the University of Michigan was with APO. The coolest thing about it was there were people from all different backgrounds and all interested in community service. I met a lot of friends through it that have similar interests as I do, " she said. She also volunteered at the hospital, represented Phi Lambda Upsilon (the Honors chemistry society) as its President, and researched in the lab with the Bio-Medical fellowship. From all of these activities, Natalie learned a great deal of useful knowledge. " I believe there is nothing better than pratical experience. I got a 100% more out of it than I would have in a classroom, " she said. Another of her many activities included being a member of the Institute for Humanities. This was a program designed to expose science majors to humanities by inviting guest lecturers and having round table discussions. " The most salient aspect of the Institute for Humanities was that people from many different disciplines could explore something they would not ordinarily talk about otherwise, " she said. With these and her many other extracurricular activities, how did Natalie do it? " Sleep less! " she said jokingly. " Planning out what I need to do and making work a priority " was how Natalie managed her time. When asked why she chose to spend her time this way, Natalie said, " It is a good habit especially in your later life. Be cognant of the fact that there are opportunities to use your talents in many ways. " Natalie pictured at right Tina Kong ' 316 Graduates ! ' !

Most students don ' t get the chance to play hockey for the number one hockey team in the nation. Many students don ' t live with NCAA record-setters as Mike does. And there ' s only one college hockey player selected as Best Sportsman Player of the Year and Mike Stone had the honor of winning this award his freshman and junior year. But when you ask him what does he think about all he has accomplished, he modestly answers, " I don ' t have anything interesting to say. " For all he has achieved in hock ey, Mike credits his father and brother for motivating him to play. But all his parents really wanted him to do in college was to succeed and be happy. " They told me to meet as many people as I ; could. They said ' It ' s over in four years and then it ' s the real world. Enjoy it while it lasts. ' " Mike says this advice has helped get through college. " Aside from just growing up, I ' ve broadened myself. I led a pretty sheltered I life growing up, going to Catholic school and playing hockey all the time. " Now things have changed and Mike is ready for the ' real world. ' Being a student athlete presents the difficult challenge of graduating in four years. But Mike has met that challenge effortlessly. He credits his study habits of going to the Graduate Library every day for his academic success. " The Grad is where I go the most because it ' s most conducive to studying. I like to be by myself so I go study in the cubicles between the stacks. " After graduation Mike hoped to follow in his brother ' s footsteps and play B hockey for a professional team. But because Mike was a free agent he didn ' t want to say exactly who he would like to play for. But he admits he ' d like to have some fun in the sun. " It would be nice to play in a sunny spot, but you can ' t be picky at this point. " Wherever Mike goes though he says he ' ll miss the University. " I ' ll miss all the people. There ' s always something going on in Ann Arbor. " But like every student at Michigan, Mike says the one thing he will not miss is the cold winter weather. " I would put the University in a warmer climate. I ' d also change the campuses. I ' d put the athletic and central campuses closer together because it ' s a long walk back and forth to classes.

" Favorite Food: Pizza at the Backroom Favorite Movie: Boyz-N ' the Hood Speak of Michigan hockey and you are bound to mention Brian Wiseman. As captain of the Michigan Hockey team his senior year, Brian led his team to clinch the Central Collegiate Hockey Association regular season cham- pionship and the NCAA hockey final four championship. The New York Rangers recruit also broke the CCHA record for the most career assists, beating David Roberts record which was set the previous year. But this was not all Brian accomplished in his four years at Michigan. Brian says that since his freshman year he has grown up. He attributes his maturing to the diverse student population at Michigan. " I came from a small community without different races and cultures, " Brian explains. " I had to keep an open mind and learn not to prejudge people. But over time, keeping an open mind helped me understand that people think differently than I do. " Through this realization Brian says he learned to be himself. " I learned not to impress people and try to be something I ' m not. " Brian knew he was a good hockey player and that ' s what he did; play hockey. But that ' s not all he did. He worked during the summers for the Red Berenson Hockey Camp and also for athletic department grounds crew. During his senior year, Brian was a student teacher in physical education all day at St. Francis Elementary and Saline High School. Brian lived with the same guys he had been living with for three years at 1234 White Street. His housemates were also his teammates; Steve Shields, David Oliver and Mike Stone. Brian and his friends loved to hang out at Rick ' s. " It was a time for us to get out of the routine lifestyle and have some fun. There were different people and friends there. " When asked who was the biggest influence in his life, Brian, who was intensely playing Sega football with Steve Shields at the time, paused a moment and responded head hockey coach Red Berenson. " He was more than just a coach. He cares more about the person than the athlete. He ' s like a father figure. " As most graduates do, Brian says he ' ll miss the school spirit Michigan students exhibit when at sporting events. " I think I ' m really going to miss the spirit. Wherever I ' m watching a Michigan sporting event I ' m going to miss the spirit. " --J.B. Akins 320 Graduates Jason G. Van Camp-Mechanical Engineering Michael T.

Coming to The University of Michigan with nearly junior standing, Jeff was the class of 1994 ' s youngest graduate. During his brief stay of two and a half years at the University, Jeffs main goal was to earn his joint degree in Political Science and Communica tions as quickly as possible, enabling him to move on i to " experience life, people, and events " around him. As Jeff explained, " I value my degree from the University as a stepping stone only. You might not know exactly what you want or who you are, but here ' s as good a place as any to start out. " Besides academics, Jeff also wrote film reviews for the Michigan Daily, participated in the Michigan Student Assembly, and worked as hockey correspondent for WCBN, the University ' s broadcasting system. Amazingly, he accomplished all of this in the space of just five semesters. Jeff said his lifestyle and personality did not change much during his brief stay at the University. " Since I have been here for a relatively short time, I still have basically the same attitude, work habits, and ego that I had when I entered U of M, " he said. One thing that did change, however, was his perception of other people. " I have learned to listen to what others say without trying to find the motives behind their views. Basically, I try to accept people for who they are, even if we don ' t see eye-to-eye. " After graduation, Jeff planned to continue on his quest for knowledge, possibly attending film school. As he explained, " 1 simply love to learn, and the more you know, the more you can do with it. " With such a strong academic foundation, it looked as though the possibilities for his future were endless. Jeff summed it up best when he said, " Leaving U of M is definitely not an end, it ' s just the beginning. There are so many different paths, and the best part is that there is no one route you have to follow.

" Winning a back-to-back Big Ten con- ference titl is Michigan Softball ' s greatest moment, " she said first K hen she considered Michigan ' s first- ever hosting of theA AA regional tournament, though, she had to reconsicHw ' This i Michigan Softball ' s greatest moment to hosfflM B gional. " In- deed, although the season endedl Ert of the goal of a national championship, the team earned honors throughout the year and had many great achievements to remember. During the first two months of the season team leaders said they learned that a veteran team needed to adapt to many different circumstances and difficulties to be victorious. By mid-season they had already heeded this lesson in nearly twenty wins, per- haps most characteristically in a double-header sweep of Minnesota. In game one Michigan won easily 8-0, scoring five runs in the first two innings and benefitting from senior pitcher Kelly Forbis ' complete game shut- out. " Being relaxed and playing the game the way it ' s supposed to be played is the key to victory, " Forbis said. Game two was a much different story, though, as the teams were scoreless into the thirteenth inning. Senior 334 Sports pitcher Kelly Kovach had given up only one hit in the first nine innings, but with no run support she had to pitch out of four consecutive innings with runners on third. The closest call came in the eleventh inning when Minnesota had runners on second and third with no outs, but Kovach quickly induced a strikeout and two easy groundouts to end the threat. Michigan ' s Michelle Silver finally ended the game with a drive off the outfield fence which led to an inside-the-park home run and a 1-0 win. By the last month of the season the team had perfected its skills as team records and opponents fell with equal ease. In the span of one week Kovach and Forbis became only the fourth and fifth Michigan pitch- ers to strike out 200 batters during their careers. In doing so, Forbis became the third Michigan pitcher to earn 20 victories in a season, and even as she secured Michigan ' s thirty-third win in forty-two games she had her sights set on more. " It feels pretty good, " she said, " But I ' m always shooting higher. " Perhaps the highlight of the month came with an easy double-header sweep of rival Michigan State. Senior left-fielder Patti Benedict, who was Big Ten Player of the Year and All- American, lead the 6-0, 6-0 humiliation with a 5 for 6 performance and three runs batted in. The victories secured a number 1 7 national ranking and an impressive 18-game winning streak. A few days later the team ended its seaso: with a 46-13 overall record, easily the best in t conference, and Mumber 10 seed in the NCAA chai pionship tournaJint. Players hoped that by hosti the regional tourn jnent the home-field advantage woul carry them past s Ac stronger teams, but after an easy 81 2 win over Bowl Green the team was edged out 6 and 2-1 by 51-5 mwerhouse Southwestern Louisiana. " I thought our teaBplayed their guts out, " said Hutchinsj " We just didn ' t gBthat timely hit when we needed it. Indeed, MichiganJnad a late two-out rally in the firs: game and a runn Apn third with no outs in the seven inning of game t |, but it could not get the tying run either game. by the losses, they were proud of the effort they hac given all year. " We just said we would never give up, ' said senior shortstop Mary Campana, " and we didn ' give up. " Indeed, from blow-out wins to extra-innin] marathons the team found ways to win in all situation and against all obstacles. Although they fell short of th " :,_ national title, they certainly earned the name of cr pions. I o Senior pitcher Kelly Forbis comments on compiling an impressive 26-4 record inciting a perfect game versus Santa Clara: " It feels pretty good, but I ' m always shooting higher.

A TALE OF TWO SEASONS The baseball team came in like a lamb with one of its slowest starts ever but came out like a lion with a 20-7 record, by Michael McCants Hi ill JL he story of the 1993 Wolverine baseball team was a tale of two seasons. The team went 5-23 in the first half of the season but 20-7 in the second, playing the toughest schedule possible. Head Coach Bill Freehan said this was by design, in order to give the players the experience of top-notch competition and also to set their sights on playing and beating the best teams But there. As Freehan said, " The Miaows, Florida ' s, Missouri ' s, and LSU ' s are t e best, and we intentionally scheduled Bese teams to challenge our young team onpt besatisfiedwith riak- ing the squaciDut competing best. " Big 10 Freshman of the Year SJ Weaver said, " We always lost the close ones. The one and two run games seed to always get away from us. Either TOC pitching wq ypc | BB aq HK t Htaft- ting, or vic versa. Yet, finally we began laying withBonfidence and got the breaks in those games. " Other key players in the WolverineBne-up, like Ron Hollis, Brian Simmons, JbttCopp, and Heath Murray, figured he ily into the success of the team. As FBehan asserted, " Their success on the fieldwill be key to that of the teams as a whole-BUfolggige l H fs dj ggm|| through with offensive support, for as a team they led the Big 10 in hitting per- centage with four of five players near the top. Weaver led the team in hitting, runs batted in, and slugging percentage, as well as ranking first or second in nearly all of the team ' s offensive categories. Freehan emphasized the team ' s need to focus on the second half of the season and build off that. " A better pitch- ing staff headed by players like Heath Murray and Todd Marion can prove the difference in this being a good team or an excellent one. " Murray believed that inconsistency in the pitching staff and overall team defense was one of the rea- sons for the up and down season. How- ever, he highlighted the Penn State series, where the Wolver- ines took 3 out of 4 games, as the turning point in the season. As Murray said, " Guys began playing with more confidence and we experienced better consistency in pitching and overall team defense. " The results were obvious of playing against top teams as well asl rebounding from a slow start will payl dividends in future seasons. Yet, even! before the season ended, the effect had! begun to emerge. As Freehan said, " Thel guys have already shown greater determi-| nation. " strong finish.

An untimely injury to even one athlete could wreak havoc on the team ' s success. InjurieBiave Shad an unfortunate tendency to invacB the | women ' s track team and prevent it from reaching re hing Warn the end ! memers avoiaeiTiajor injuries, and the end result was the best season ever for a Michigan women ' s track and field team third place in the I Big 1 Indoor Championship topped only by a Big 10 Outdoor championship. Just like many other sports, the winner of | a track meet is the team that scores the most | points. With seventeen indoor events and twenty- three outdoor events, an easy way to score the I most points is to have finalists in as many events I as possible in order to maximize the team ' s scoring i capabilities. It is in this respect that the health factor can be crucial for a track team. As junior ! Molly McClimon said, " Even one or two people hurt can really affect the team score. " It is no surprise, then, that it would be I ideal for a team to be fully healthy heading into ( Conference Championship meets. Unlike previ- ous years, " This year was the first time we had a full squad at the meet (Big 10 Outdoor Cham- pionship), " said junior Laura Jerman. As a result, there was a great deal of depth in all events which provided scor- i n g opportunities in almost every event. " It ' s not often that you can go to a very big competition and play every- body, but that ' s the way it worked for the Michigan (women ' s) track and field team, " said Head Coach James Henry. Of course, each team will have strengt which it can rely on from meet to meet, and as has been the case before, the distance runners were this team ' s strength. As Henry said, " We ' re always strong on distances; it ' s the backbone of our team. " Indeed, McClimon and sophomore Courtney Babcock, both of whom specialize in distance, earned Indoor All-American honors while an- other distance runner, sophomore Karen Harvey, joined McClimon and Babcock as Outdoor Ail- Americans. Yet, while the distance runners provided their usual strong effort led by a Wolverine sweep of four of the top five spots in the 3,000 meter run, it was a full team effort diat allowed the team to capture the outdoor corWrence title. As Henry said, " I think other memDOTs of our team contrib- uted more than what we nA lly have gotten (from them). " Such strong conmcutions included senior Julie Victor ' s third-place fin fc the dis- cus, junior Richelle Webb ' s school record- performances as runner-up in both the 100 and 200 meter dash, and first-year student Linda Stuck ' s third in the high jump. Jerman, who was herself heptathlon champion, added, " Everyone pulled their end. That ' s what made it a full team effort. " After the first full day of competition, the team felt that it had a shot at winning the title. With finalists in almost every event, the team knew that it had the chance for valuable points to add to its score. Nonetheless, coaches were skep- tical that the team would be able to hold on knowing that heavily favored Illinois was close on its heels. As Henry said, " I didn ' t think that we would hold on. As the points continued to come in, I was still a little skeptical as to when Illinois ' points would come in. " Yet, Illinois ' points never came in, and when the dust settled, the Wolver- ines found themselves alone at the top with a total score of 150.5, a school conference championship record total as well as the third highest total ever in any Big 10 track Championship. " Things just fell into place for us, " said McClimon, winner of the 5,000 meter run, about the team ' s upset win. To say that the team was surprised that it had won was an understatement. Illinois had been heavily favored, so, as McClimon said, " We maybe if we had a good meet we could j. " The coaches even thought that was as s the team could go. However, there were some who a little more optimistic about the team ' s title hqPs. As Jerman said, " A few of us thought, deep dowf kside, we could win it all. " " I was surprised that w von. It didn ' t quite hit me until the Illinois cMch said, ' con- gratulations, you did it; ' that ' s when it was starting to sink in, " said Henry. Indeed, thShad done it.

II FILLING THE VOID A blend of new faces and experienced players worked together to overcome the challenges caused by the graduation of nearly the entire Men ' s tennis team, by Josh Bopp ' ne of the pitfalls associated with any college athletic team is the loss of experienced athletes due to graduation. Having to fill the void left by those who have graduated often rests on inexperi- enced players. With the men ' s tennis team, a type of rebirth came with the loss of nearly the entire team due to gradua- tion ana the arrival of several new faces . As a result, many players were put in situations unfamiliar to them, but although it was not the most impressive record for the young Wolverines, many obstacles were overcome. Head Coach Brian Eisner wanted to emphasize that the season was mainly a time of building and learning with only four returning players and four first-year players. As team captain, junior Dan Brakus said, " It was a definite learning year for the team. " A lot of the learning came from hands-on experience as all four first-year students saw regular playing time throughout the year. " It was pretty tough with a lot of young players who hadn ' t played a lot rfHHIlesPWIfer lHPw JP learning as w|went along, (and) it some- times takes a while to get used things, " said sophonBre Grady Burnett who, though in hiBsecond year on the team, was playing on a regular basis for the first time.

" Losing numerous matches by only a few sets, the team struggled to both overcome inhibitions and live up to expectations they had set from themselves. " It ' s hard when you don ' t have that many guys used to the situation and pressures (of college tennis), " said Burnett, who saw action as both the 3 and 4 singles player. As players recounted, when the being a team just was not thereat uchor this was attributed to having so many new faces around. " We lost practically a whole team in one season. So, it was kind of weird with so many young teammates, " said Brakus, who compiled a 3 1 - 1 1 record as well as being the fourt h-ranked player in the Midwest playing 1 singles. " We just weren ' t at all close or team- mates in the true sense of the word, " added Costanzo, the team ' s 1 singles player. However, serving as team cap- tain and leader, Brakus was able to bring the team to- gether by season ' s end. As Costanzo said, " He (Brakus) pulled us all to- gether and made us feel like a team. " " His on-court lead- ership inspired us all. He save 100% in my eyes, we had the ability to finish) second or I wanted for us to step up and follow his example, " added Burnett.

A team that is M gtcMM e d teiw more than just talent. Although women s tennis team members were disappointed with a low Big 10 finish, they hoped a sea- son of experience would pay dividends in the future. Finishing sixth in the Big 10 would seem to be quite an accomplishment to most people but not to the Wol- verine women. " Last year was a year of ups and downs. We had our share of disap- pointments and strong points, " said sophomore Jaimie Fielding. " But, " said Head Coach Bitsy (Eliza- beth) Ritt, " we had a young team, with only two upper class players. The talent was there, but it was rela- tively inexperienced in terms of college tennis. " " It ' s important that we ' re all working toward a com- mon goal and I think we had a good work ethic, " said Ritt. The team was eager to work hard and follow the lead set by their coach. As Fielding said, " (Coach Ritt) is a great example to her layers. She is extremely organized and wis a great work ethic. " Yet, despite the ragerness, the inexperi- ence came back tdmaunt the team. " We were fresh and reac to play, but we had some mistakes and fell down in some areas, " said Fielding, a " veteran " in only her second year on the team. Despite the inexperience of young members, " new blood " can be a welcome addition to any team, but it can also throw off a team ' s balance. With only eight players, Ritt aimed for two players per class to achieve the perfect mix, but in- stead, there was only one senior, one j unior, three sophomores, and three first-year stu- dents. So, what helped to obtain team balance even when there was no clas b HjH Individual team member stressed a strong work ethic and a focuse goal im the team as a whole. " If some o the pliers felt that their individual per- formaj|ces were not quite up to the standMd they expected at the beginnin of the eason, they recognized what they needaito work on and worked hard at it, ' said Bt. This attitude of hard work was rewarfcd by the participation of five tean memtjp in the All- American Pre-Quali Palisades, California. The tournamen gave the players a chance to get a feel foi what highly competitive West Coast ten- nis was like. " Many of the West Coas ' schools are very competitive, (and) i ' gave us an opportunity to meet Wes Coast players, " said Ritt. Unlike the dua matches the team was normally accus tomed to playing where a player had th opportunity to play both singles anc doubles, in this tournament, players wer guaranteed only one match. Once player lost, she was out. With five of the eight player recording at least twenty victories, led b Fielding ' s twenty-six, and having wot five of their last seven matches, the tea had high hopes heading into the Big 1 Championships. However, the team lo: to Iowa, a team they had beaten 7-2 i the regular season, and finished sixt " Losing to Iowa and finishing sixth was big disappointment, " said Fielding.

Likewise, the men ' s golf team faced a similar situation. After nearly three months of teeing off indoors, the team was released onto the courses to begin the spring season. Many took a while to get back into the swing of things, and many members expressed frustration due to lack of touch. But, because of the team ' s close relationship, there never seemed to be a lack of support. " 1 think it all came down to confidence, " said senior Bob Henighan. After coming off a summer of tourna- ments, the men ' s golf team began the fall season playing some of its best golf. Led by senior co- captain Anthony Dietz, the team began the fall season by placing sixth at the Northern Intercol- legiate Tournament. A third place finish at the Buckeye Fall Classic and a twelfth place finish at the Stanford Invitational followed. Due to the long Michigan winters, the team faced a prolonged layoff between the fall and spring seasons, and after the lengthy winter layoff, the team entered the spring half of their season a bit out of sync. " I was disappointed with the season because I thought we had a good chance, with all the returning player, " said sophomore Bill Lyle.

Otherwise, we could of finished fourth or fifth, " com- mented Head Coach Jim Carras. Despite its mediocre perfor- mances, the team never seemed to give up. The support they gave one another was evident by the closeness of the team.

With a lengthy winter layoff, the Michigan women ' s golf team anticipated that there would be difficulties in regaining its form from the fall. Although the team members were not able to maintain their peak throughout the season, they enjoyed several successful outings. Yet it was their lack of consistency that prevented them from showing their true potential as the season pro- gressed. The team opened the season by placing tenth at the Lady Northern Invitational. A fourth and a fifth place finish at the Michigan State University Spartan Invitational and the Ohio State Invitational, respectively, followed. The team closed out the fall season on a successful note as it placed second at the James Madison Invita- tional.

" It felt nice to have a break because most of us have been playing since the beginning of the summer, " said senior Tegan McCorkel. When the team headed south for their first spring tournament, it was much like teeing off for the first time since the fall season. The team started slowly by placing tenth at the NIU Snow- bird Invitational. But after an impressive second place finish at the Penn State Lady Lion Invita- tional, the team felt confident entering the Big 10 Championships in early May. This optimism was short-lived, however, as the team finished a dissat- isfying tenth placn was disappointed with the finish because I knew my girls had more talent than they showed, " corr1nted coach Sue Leclair. Although the winter season may have been an obstacle that prevented the women ' s golf team from showing its true potential, the team was satisfied with its play throughout the season. " Over- all, I think the season went well. We finished pretty well in some tournaments, and that ' s all we could ask for. " said McCorkel.

STICKER ' S DELIGHT First-ever win over Northwestern capped what the coach called the ' best season ever " in Michigan field hockey history, by Sara Fette , umbers often do not tell the whole story. I To look at a 13-7 overall record and a 4-6 Big 10 I record, it would seem as if it was just another good season for the women ' s field hockey team. Yet, this was more than just another season, for it was marked by outstanding accomplishments. As testament to this, with their record the Wolver- ines finished the season ranked sixteenth in the I nation. " This has been the best season ever in I the history of Michigan field hockey. We were ranked eighth in the nation at one time, and were consistently one of the top twenty teams in the country, " said Head Coach Patti Smith. Indeed, the team held ten of its twenty opponents scoreless, and all but one loss was at the hands of highly-ranked oppo- nents. The Big 10 was the most difficult force with which the team had to contend. Besides the Wolverines, three other Big 1 foes were nation- ally ranked throughout the season. In addition to displaying remark- able tenacity against No. 1 Penn State and No. 3 Iowa, the Wol- verines enjoyed a historical defeat with their 2-0 victory over No. 2 Northwestern in the final game of the regular season. " We beat Northwestern for the fist time in the his- tory of Michigan field hockey, " said Smith. " Plus, we beat them at Northwestern, which is a very difficult field. Northwestern definitely had the home-team advantage. " Junior de- fender Nancy Irvine was proud of the team ' s performance within the conference. " The Big 10 was one of the hardest conferences this year. Our losses to Iowa and Penn State were not blowout by any means, and our victory over Northwestern was a real accomplish- ment, " said Irvine. Senior forward and co-captain Shay Perry was also pleased with the Wolverines ' season. " Of my four years on the team, this was the best year we ' ve ever had. The six seniors brought a lot of experience to the team. It also helped to start the season with a 5-0 streak, " said Perry. According to Smith, the season was the most successful one she has seen in her five years as head coach. " While we didn ' t go to the NCAA Regionals, we had a better opportunity to do so than ever before this past season. " Fueled by their ac Wolverines expressed " " coming season. As a Irvine revealed her high expectations for next year ' s team: " I think we ' re going to have a very strong passing team next year. We have a very promising recruiting class coming up, so I ' m confident that we ' ll be a force to contend with in the Big 10 next year. " Having finished her final year with the Wolverines on a successful note, Perry reflected on her experience with the team. " I ' ve made my best friends through my expe- rience on the team, and I ' ve had the chance to see a lot of places I would probably have never seen, " said Perry. " I ' ve really enjoyed the ipportunity to be a Big 10 athlete. " lishments, the P Senior defender Lelli Hose searches for an open teammate to pass to.

AHEAD OF THE PACK The cross country teams left the competition behind as the women captured their second consecutive and the men their first Big 10 title, by Hubie Yang Ouccess begets success. This old adage certainly held true for Michigan ' s men ' s and women ' s cross country teams in 1993. Building upon their success the previous season, with the women ' s team in possession of the Big 1 title and the men ' s team laying claim to the Big 10 runner- up position, both the men and women harriers entered the 1993 season with high expectations. Both delivered in kind, establishing the Univer- sity of Michigan as a perennial contender in not only conference but also national competition. With a number of returning starters from the previous year ' s team that finished eighth at the NCAA Championships, women ' s coach Mike McGuire was optimistic about the team ' s pros- pects, noting, " We have most of our athletes back from last year so we really think that we can impact the national level better than we did this past year. " Led by the consistently strong performance of senior Molly McClimon, who placed first in all but one of her regular season starts, the women were blessed with remarkable depth with sopho- more Courtney Babcock, juniors Karen Harvey and Jessica Kluge, senior Chris Szabo, and other taleHed young runners fast upon McClimon ' s heel In a season that took the team as far away as Nlntana and Indiana, often pitting it against othlnationally ranked teams, the women, who con tently polled among the top three in the natil, forged an impressive undefeated record finishing sixth at the NCAA Championsh|. McGuire noted the marked motivation of the team as a significant factor in its succel as Babcock stated, " Our first goal was to win thH3ig 1 0.. .next obviously, to win in the district to qiJify for nationals... at nationals, we definitely warlto finish) in the final four, but winning it is not out Championship meet in late October, the women parl ed this drive into a second consecutive Big 10 tOK.

Harvey ' s consistent top ten finishes helped the women ' s team finish first in all but one of its fire-championship meets. -Mariela Qamez " I definitely think this is one of the best teams we ' ve had.. .in terms of talent definitely, " ) said MacDonald. " Last year was our best ever finish at nationals, and I think we ' re a better tear this year. " Gradually improving upon its perfor-l mances with each meet, the men succeeded in| capturing the elusive Big 10 Conference title and qualifying for national competition with a thirc place finish at the NCAA District IV meet. They ended the season with a tenth place finish at the NCAA Championships. With Michigan ' s recognized tradition o consistently remarkable success elevated to ar even higher level in 1993, both the women ' s anc men ' s cross country teams could confidently em-| brace their increasing national prominence wiri pride.

Wymer again established herself as one of the team ' s best having the top score in several events including perfect 10 ' s on both the uneven bars and floor exericse . -Josh Sohn hether it was on or off the uneven parallel bars or balance beam, the Women ' s gymnastic team proved that love for the sport knows no bounds. Team unity was key to a very successful season, which was also a great selling point for future recruits. Doing away with the " recruiting attitude " that many teams present, the Wolverine women genuinely supported each other and prided themselves on being friends even after practice. " It took a genuine caring from each mem- ber for the whole team to do well, " said Coach Beverly Plocki. " All I asked was that they gave me one hundred percent of what they could give me that day. " In order to earn a high team score, there was a need for strong individual performances. And, the only sure way of attaining this was with plenty of support, encouragement and cheers both for and from fellow team members. Senior co- captian Wendy Wilkinson, U-M ' s first conference all-around titlist, was a definite powerhouse and asset to the team. Even when she was not able to compete because of a knee injury, she applauded the rest of the team and encouraged them to perform well. " When I was a freshman, I was counted on to go out and hit a routine every time. My role has changed since then, as both a senior and a captain. I worked harder and started watching out for everyone else. I wanted to contribute in any way I could, " Wilkinson said. Senior Nicole Simpson agreed. " Ever since freshman year, we ' ve been a close team. We had a great time together and pulled for each other. It ' s the best feeling to see other people do well. " Friendship and com- munication was a big strength, as gymnastics is such an individualized sport. The amount ex- pressed by each individual even led many recruits to believe it was too good to be true. " Each woman was genuine. We never had problems with cliques or divisions of any kind, " added Plocki. All of the tumblers ' goals were team- oriented. " As a freshman, I knew we had the energy and the determination to reach our goals. The first year we won the Big Ten, people saw a look in our eyes. If someone would have told me four years ago that in my senior year we ' d be ranked fourth in the country, I wouldn ' t have believed it, " said Simpson. This energy overcame the numerous injuries which plagued the Wolver- ine women all season and led them to their third straigt Big 10 Conference title. " We ' ve spent the last three years being very focused and goal-oriented in our training and competing. This year, we ' ve competed with many of the Top 20 and Top 10 teams. That ' s the only way to make it to the Super Six (the elite NCAA Sophomore Dianna Ranelli prepares to begin her balance beam routine. Ranelli also competed on the vault where she was ranked among the top twenty individuals in the country. -Josh Sohn Top Six teams). We focused on what we were doing and not what everyone else was doing. These kids have an excellent attitude and a great work ethic, " said Plocki. They wanted a little bit more, and their confidence and depth helped them to gain the advantage over the other teams. It is no surprise, then, that the U-M women clinched a first place win in the Cal-State quadrangular anc second place to UCLA in the UCLA quadrangu- lar. It is also easy to see why Plocki became the winningest coach in the history of Michigan ' s women ' s gymnastics. " It doesn ' t matter who comes in first second, or third, " said Plocki. " All that matters i: that it ' s Michigan. " 354 Sports ::cis Sophomore Tina Miranda supplied the team with vital points both on the balance beam and, as snotim here, the uneven bars.

The overall season was pretty strong, despite the injuries, as the senior play- ers picked up the slack. Ironically, most of these se- niors themsevles were nursing sprained ankles and knees. Nev- ertheless, their on-court leader- ship and hard work pulled the team together in the end. " I was exactly where I wanted to be, " said senior defen- sive specialist setter Erica Badran-Grycan. " I inspired [the team] to work hard. I tried to be consistent in my playing as well as to be a good contributor to the team. " " I agree that the team works pretty hard. We always go one hundred percent in practice, " said senior Joanna Collias, outside hitter. " We work hard outside of practice as well. We ' re really dedicated. " What did second year coach Greg Giovanazzi think of this? He worked the Wolverine women hard, although he did not begin his first season of coaching in 1992 with preconceived notions about the U-M ' s work ethic. They were individuals and had something valuable to contribute to the other players. " He wants us to have our freedom. He ' s laid back and he inspires us, but not to be just like him, " said Badran-Grycan. " He even encouraged us to read The Fountainhead, by Ayn Rand, last summer. It ' s a novel about finding individuality, " she added. " If I could transfer something to the team, I would want them to be as passionate about the game as I am, " said Coach Giovanazzi. " It ' s a luxury to be dealing with people who are such good students as well as good atheletes. They under- stand what we ' re trying to accomplish right away and we just have to add the missing ingredient, which is working hard to do it. " Working hard simply brought out another great virtue of the U-M spikers: respect. These women were extremely respectful of the other team, the officials and most importantly, of each other. " But, " added Giovanazzi, " I would even encourage them to go past that and be a little bit confrontational, a little bit more competitive, and experiment with it. Competitive exchange is healthy and at this point, I think they ' re still evolving in that part of their atheletic lives. " Senior middle blocker Fiona Davidson, felt that this competitive aspect of her playing was well underway. " As a team, we ' re fiery and in most matches, we went out fighting. Per- sonally, I ' m very competitive. I think through that, I ' ve been myself and I hope other people see me like that and see that that ' e a good way to be. So far, it looks like it ' s working, " she stated. And indeed it did. Tying Indiana for 7th place in the Big- 10, the Wolverines finished 11-18 over- all and 7-13 in the Conference. The " Big Two, " Penn State and Ohio State, finished first and second, respectively, but not without a good fight from U-M. Giving them a " few good scares " , the Wolverines held their competitors at game point quite often. " Ohio State and Penn State are the toughest teams in the Big-10, " said Davidson. " We ' re getting to know Penn State a little better, though. They just entered the Big-10 a couple of years ago, so we haven ' t had as much history with them as we have with Ohio State. When we play Ohio State, though, we always play very well. " No matter what team, home or away, each match against OSU was a battle. On the whole, the season was very exciting for the Wolverine women. " Last year, it was Greg ' s first year here and we ended up finishing with our best record so far. Plus, we knew we would have almost our entire team back for the 93 season, " added Davidson. Badran-Grycan agreed: " In 92, Greg was ' testing the waters. ' Now as the years go on, it will get better and better. " Sports 357 II ..... ALL GOOD THINGS MUST COME TO AN END Aspirations for a sixth consecutive Big 10 title came up short as injuries and uninspired play at times caused the football team to settle for a 7-4 record, by Sam Garber ; i Even with missing two games because of a shoulder injury, junior tailbackTyrone Wheatley still managed to pile up 1005 yards rushing. Wheatley was named to both the All Big 10 Coach ' s and Media ' s First Team squads. -Josh Sohn Another season, another football team. Same old story. The addition of Penn State to conference play mattered not as the Wolverines were again selected as the outright favorite for sixth consecutive title and a return trip to the Rose Bowl. And this was despite a new starting quarter back and an inexperienced offensive line. Playing inspired at times and uninspir at others, the team finished with a 7-4 record tyi for fourth in the conference, having the " woi seasonsince 1984. Yet injuries took their toll as entire line up could almost be made with names of players, such as Derrick Alexander, Tyrone Wheatley, Steve Morrison, Marc Milia Bobby Powers, Marcus Walkers, and Matt Dyso: who missed at least one full game ' s worth of acti due to an injury. As a result, many inexperienc players were thrust into the heat of the action a gained on the job experience facing some of th| stiffest competition Big 10 opponents had p vided in years. Despite this, the Wolverines showed earl} on that they deserved their lofty number three pr season ranking with an impressive 41-14 thrashi of Washington State. Junior tailback Tyron Wheatley led the ground attack with 117 ya while junior quarterback Todd Collins provide " I pretty much knew what route they (Buckeye receivers! were going to run and I just played the ball when thel (Buckeye quaterbacks) threw it, " said sopho comerback Ty Law .

The emotion the team had exhibited in defeating the Cougars seemed almost nonexistent as the " Golden Domers " from South Bend came to wn for the annual tussle. What was thought to a Notre Dame team in a rebuilding year, the Irish stormed into Michigan stadium and scored on its first two possessions. Wheatley ran for 146 yards and Collins threw for 251 yards, but it was not enough as the Wolverines could not overcome the Irish ' s fast start and fell 27-23. As had been the case in the previous couple of seasons, an early season loss (or tie) to the Irish all but eliminated the Wolverines from the Rational championship hunt. As junior linebacker teve Morrison said, " The national championship something we have to put behind us now. And at hurts, because its definitely something that we anted very badly. " Houston seemed to be just the medicine the team needed to get the disappointing :oss to the Irish behind it since last season the olverines had won 61-7 and another blowout thought to be coming. Yet a flat performance arked by the defensive missing tackles and the nse making mistakes to stop itself characterized the Wolverines ' 42-21 victorious effort. As the team headed into Big 10 confer- ence play, coaches and players alike knew that the team had to work hard if it was to earn a return trip to Pasadena. Following a sound 24-7 Big 10 opening victory against Iowa, it seemed as if the team had worked out some of the kinks and was ready for the long haul ahead of it. Yet, this was from the truth as the Wolverines responded with an uninspired performance against state rival Michigan State. Shutout for the first half, which was the first time a Michigan team headed by Gary Moeller had be held scoreless for the first half, the Wolverines could not overcomes the 1 7-0 half- time deficit and managed only 33 yards rushings en route to the 17-7 loss. The worst seemed yet to come as the Wolverines had to travel to State College, PA, for its initial confrontation with newest Big 10 rival Penn State. But, senior wide receiver Derrick Alexander ' s punt return for a touchdown late in the second quarter to cut the Nittany Lion led to 10-7 provided the spark the Wolverines needed. Aided by a goal line stand where Penn State failed to score on four chances from the Wolverine one- yard line, the Wolverines rallied for a 2 1 - 1 3 " upset " of the favored Nittany Lions. " Buster is one of the guys that has done it for us all season. He ' s been a great leader for us , " said head coach Gary Moeller about senior co ' Captain and defensive tackle Buster Stanley. Here, Stanley gets help from junior linebacker Steve Morrison (36) to bring down Notre Dame ' s Bobby Taylor. -Josh Sotm Now it looked as if all systems were func- tioning well with the team, but another emotion-less effort against Illinois proved other- wise. Despite its flat play, the team seemed to have the game won, however, holding to a 21-17 lead and having possession of the ball late in the fourth quarter. Yet, while trying to run out the clock, senior tailback Ricky Powers fumbled the ball and the Illini recovered. They promptly marched down the field, and on fourth down from the Wolverine six, Illini quarterback Johnny Johnson eluded Wolverine defenders long enough to find wideout Jim Klein open in the endzone for the game winning score with just 37 seconds left. The 24-21 loss all but eliminated the chance for another Rose Bowl trip, and to make matters worse, the team was to be without the services of Wheatley for the upcoming road game against eventual Big 10 and Rose Bwol champion Wisconsin. Badger tailbacks Brent Moss and Terrell Fletcher had their way with the Wolver- ines defense when it mattered, and despite a valiant second half effort, the Badgers handed tne Wol- verines its second consecutive loss, this time by a 13-10 count. While the Badgers scored thier first vic- tory versus U-M in twelve (continued on page 360) junior linebacker Matt Dyson was one of several Wolverines hampered by injuries all season long, but he could still be counted on for many punishing tackles, such as this one on Ohio State ' s Dimitrious Stanley. -Josh Sohn Sportss359 ii (continued from page 359) twelve years, the game was marred by the scene which followed the game as jubilant students tried to make their way onto the field at Camp Randall stadium to celebrate the win. As they tried to do so, a restraining fence collapsed from the force the students were placing on it, resulting in many students being trampled and crushed. Badger football players and security guards had to help unpile students but still nearly 60 students had to be rushed to local area hospi- tals. Following the loss, the team found itself in an unusual situation of having a 4-4 record. With three games to go, the team knew it had to win at least two of the three to be qualify for post season play, which had been a Wolverine regular occurrence since 1974- Again without the ser- vices of Wheatley, first-year tailback Tshimanga Junior guard Shawn Miller (57) and junior Trezelle Jenkins (77) provide the blocking junior quarterback Todd Collins needs to find an open receiver. Despite Collins completing 21 of 31 passes for 248 against the Badgers, the Wolverines fell short in their comeback attempt as teh Badgers prevailed 13-10. -Josh Sohn needed rushing for 140 yards in a lackluster 25-10 win against Purdue. It may not have been pretty, but as Moeller said, " It was a very big win. " Wheatley returned the following week and helped lead the team to an impressive 58-7 drubbing of rival Minnesota. With the win, the Wolverines not only secured a winning season but also secured the " Little Brown Jug " for yet another season. That left j ust one more game to be played- Ohio State. The highly ranked Buckeyes came into Michigan Stadium ready to head to Pasadena for the first time since 1985 with a win. Yet did they and the record crowd at Michigan dium expect to see a Wolverine team fired up like it had not been at any point in the season take the field. A 281 yard rushing attack coupled with a defense that intercepted four Buckeye passes, in- cluding two spectacular picks by sophomore cornerback Ty Law, provided more than enough support as the Wolverines posted its first shutout of the Buckeyes since 1976 with a convincing 28- win. Said Moeller, " It was an unbelievable game for us. We played like we should have all season with emotion.

Sports 361 ' U OF M vs. PENN STAT Luii LET THE RIVALRY BEGI Blue IjtoctOftKttjuiy Lion a lesSk about f 10 foot- by Sam Garber 362 Sports Xou would have thought that surely Michigan and Penn State, two of the winningest programs in college football, would have done battle on the ield at least once before. Not so. It took Michigan over one thousand games and Penn State its one thousandth for the two to collide. While some appeal verines loss to Michigan State the previous week, as game time neared the the impression that this was not just any game. It was the game game one in the nay have been lost following the Wol- sxcitement filling Beaver Stadium gave ewest Big 10 rivalry. Both teams started the game attempts. After their initial drive, how- :med to move the ball effortlessly, ate in the first quarter. The second quarter contin- ly offensive success while Penn State abby Engram to increase the lead to with impressive opening drives but came away empty following missed field goal ever, the Wolverines had trouble sustaining any offense while the Nittany Lions Though another drive stalled, the Lions kicked a field goal to open the scoring ued much the same as the first had ended with the Wolverines unable to muster was having its way. Following a 37-yard touchdown reception by Lion wideout 1 0-0, it looked as if a rout was on. However, after punter Chris Stapleton ' s punt ed the Lions to start on their own five yard line, the defense came through and forced the Lions to punt after three plays. Aided by a key block from irnerback Alfie Burch, receiver Derrick Alexander returned the punt 48 yards for a Wolverine touchdown. " I just ran to the left, and saw Alfie Burch ke the block. When I made the cut, there was nobody left so it was pretty easy sailing, " said Alexander. Though still trailing 10-7 as the teams went into halftime, Alexander ' s punt return seemed to provide the spark that the Wolverines needed. As le second half began, the defense again rose to the occasion by forcing the Lions to Its first half trend, the offense responded with a seven minute ball-control drive deep ory. The drive stalled forcing the Wolverines to settle for a field goal attempt. Place Elezovic missed but an offsides penalty against Penn State gave the Wolverines a first Chance to score. Score they did, as quarterback Todd Collins hit receiver Mercury atch in the end zone to give the Wolverines their first lead. The game was by no means over as the Nittany Lions marched down the field lies to the Wolverine one yard line. First-and-goal at the one it looked like the lead punt. Reversing into Lion tern- kicker Peter down and another Hayes on a diving on their next se- would be short ived as the Lions were about to punch it in. " In my heart, yes, I knew we were going to stop them, " said tailback Tyrone Wheatley. But really, you ' re still ind of skeptical. " But, in what may go down in the annals of Michigan football lore simply as " The Stand, " the defense refused to allow the Lions to get e ball across the goal line. Three times the Lions ran up the middle but each time the Wolverine defense met the challenge head on. It came down to urth-and-goal, Collins handed off :oming my way and oCarter. With the hurt of the end While :fused to quit. Af- 4-13. Knowing and while many expected the Lions to loop out or pass, Lion quarterback Kerry to tailback Ki-Jana Carter for another try up the middle. " I just saw the ball stepped up the best I could, " said linebacker Jerrod Irons who was the first to get help of several teammates, Irons wrapped up Carter and brought him to the ground zone. " The Stand " turned the momentum in favor of the Wolverines, Penn State ter forcing a Wolverine punt, the Lions added a field goal to close the deficit to the game was still on the line, outstanding blocking by the offensive line allowed fallbacks Ed Davis and Wheatley to pile up yardage as the offense marched down the field, i rushed for 192 yards, broke free for a forty-seven yard run down to the Lion six, and on al Collins hit fullback Che Foster in the flat for a touchdown and a 21-13 lead. The Lions phance to score again, but safety Shonte Peoples dashed the Lions ' hopes by intercepting a pass en seconds left. As the clock ticked down to zero, a roar could be heard in the stadium; not nanating from the Scoreboard as is a Nittany Lion tradition but rather one from the small itingent in the corner of one end zone. Amid chants of " Welcome to the Big 10 " and " Hail s, " the players came over to the Michigan section in appreciation of the support the fans had Wheatley, third-and- did have a with four- o n e Michigan to the Vic- given them. Penn State thought it could cruise through the Big 10 and go to Pasadena in its first year, but as Wheatley said, " You have to pay your Big 10 dues. " lough only the first meeting, it was evident that one of the most heated rivalries in college football had begun. Said Penn State linebacker Eric Ravotti, e won most of the battles, but they won the war. " Indeed, war is the best way to describe Big 10 football, and as center Marc Milia said, " We welcomed " in State to the conference in Big 10 style. " Sports 363 hile the most familiar New Year ' s Day spot for the Wolverine football faithful is Pasa- dena and the Rose Bowl, celebrating the new year in Tampa was not a new experience. Indeed Wolverines had ventured to Tampa in ] they defeated Alabama in the 198 Lall ct r ' ame Bowl. Acting as interim coachd Pmie filling in for the recuperating Bo Schemjrchler, now head coach Gary Moeller hoiAd to improve on his perfect Hall of Fame re Kas his squad took on another bunch of wol -the Wolfpack of North Carolina State in the eighth annual Hall of Fame Bowl. Comin Br a 28-0 humiliation of arch rival Ohio Stat f close the regular season, the 7- 4 Wolverines were a lofty two touchdown favorite over the 7-4 jWfpack.

Ho was looking a n c wKr, asPihi r, as the game began to unfold it iis was not to be the case. After one quarter, the Wolverines were only able to muster a mere 3 tal yards. Maybe the 1 1 am kickoff New Yea fcay was too early as neither team was able to sul n much on offense. " As the game started, both teams were just feeling each other out, " said first- kt free safety Clarence Thompson. Yet after the scorele first quarter, things began going the Wolverines ' wai jipr tailback and game MVP Tyrone Wheatley c fctn eighty yard drive with a 26 yard touchdown nin the Wolverines a 7-0 lead. As they had versus Penn State earlier in the season, the Wol- verines ' special teams took matters into their own hands to spark the rest of the team after the Wolfpack was forced to punt on its next posses- sion. Racing up the middle, senior wide receiver Derrick Alexander returned the punt for a bowl record 79 yard touchdown. fflj Alu ' .ul 14-0, it seemed as if the rout was on. However, the wmfpa mpnded with a drive of its own, only to have it B ep in U-M territory with a fumble. Again the drove but stalled with a fourth and Wolfpack 31 yard line. With only three sec left in the first half, Moeller decided to go for the touchdown. Despite the fact that everyone knew junior quarterback Todd Collins ' pass was headed for the end zone, sophomore wide receiver Amani Toomer got open and outleaped a Wolfpack de- fender in the corner of the end zone to make the catch. The score seemed to break the Wolfpack ' s back, for instead of only being down two scores going into halftime, they now found themselves down 21-0. As Collins said, " It ' s pretty demoral- izing to a defense to have that happen to you. " With such a big lead, the Wolverines opted for a conservative ground-oriented attack throughout the second half. Wheatley, who fin- ished with 124 yards in just three quarters of playing time, added a second touchdown and senior tailback Ricky Powers added a score of his own in helping the offense pile up an impressive 265 yards rushing. With all the hard- ship he had endured during the season, scoring in his last game as a Wolverine was very satisfying for Powers. " I ' ve been through a lot. all the stuff I ' ve endured to get a TD had tears of joy, " said Pow- ?ooking at the game ' s fi- s, it would not seem that the score was so lopsided. After all, the Wolfpack held the ball longer than the Wolverines and only had earned only fewer yards. Yet what stuck out the Wolfpack ' six turnovers. Indeed, the Wolverines capitalizec on two Wolfpack fumbles and four interceptions| one of which Thompson returned 43 yards for : touchdown as the defense got in on the scoring, 1 converting them into 28 points. Add to thil Alexander ' s punt return and it was now clear wh | the final score was 42-7 in the Wolverines ' favc olfpack head coach Mike O ' Cain said after th |ne, " We played a fine football team; mayh fr than a fine team. It ' s a class group. " Moeller was very pleased with the team ' jj e. " I see our guys playing w ith sue kt effort that I didn ' t see at the beginnir kr, " said Moeller. The victory enabled thj Rnd what had been a roller coaster season on a high note with four consecutive wins, whic| it could use to build on for the upcoming seasor As Collins said, " We wanted to show that we wer the Michigan of old. We wanted to show that wji could still dominate. " That they did, and thj Wolverine faithfulhoped they could return ne year to their favorite New Years ' spot.

A bittersweet season marked what may have been the men ' s gymnastics team ' s final go around at varsity competiion. by John Whelan he men ' s gymnastics team should have ntered the 1994 season expecting great things, :hat had just finished tenth in the country. The earn had a great blend of experience (8 of the 12 nembers competed in nationals) and newcomers. Barring the injuries which had set them back the previous year, 1994 should have been a tremen- Bous year for the team. However, Coach Bob Darden and his players had a burden hanging over [hem all year that would overshadow any accom- ilishment they achieved in competition, no matter how great. The University of Michigan Athletic Department had decided that it was in its best iterest to drop men ' s gymnastics from varsity itatus. The athletic department had previously lecided to drop the men ' s program following the 993 season, but after intense lobbying b |eam it was given a one-year reprieve pB mt the season though, the j A spent time ibbying the committees and dl ublic trying to Kan a reversal of the rulbA A lengthy battle nsued, but it was to n rvail, for the decision jemained the same. Xate in the season, new thletic director Joe obeson did request a re- irieve of the deciskflf to cut the program, but, tonetheless, the tea ' s future remained unclear, uymnast Royce Towaid, " We go in every month ind we pose new quSions. We pose new solutions |o have this team stcl inancially funded and a part f the University arMyet no one responds to us. " Hhere were various reasons that the department ilaimed to be behind Ae move. Among its great- ist concerns were rneWtig the Big Ten gen der Iquity mandate, the national diminishment of hen ' s gymnastics as a varsl sport, and the need p maintain a tight athleticmidget (despite the ict the department turned a $ 1 . 4k ion profit in 993). With all of this overshadowing icn ' s team attempted to do what it did best: WTn. te team still retained a tremendously talented m and despite the loss of varsity status following the season, coach Darden recruited five top-ranked freshmen. Darden said, " I jerfectly upfront , Wav R ' Ti with Weryone on the team regarding the program status. " Junior Brian Winkler returned to the team following a season marred by injuries. Winkler had made it to Nationals during his freshman year, so much was expected of him. In 1994, he regained the form that had sent him to national ' s, as he re- mained first in the nation on the paral- lel bars during most of the season. The team was also helped could help push the team into nationals. 1 994 was supposed to have been the year that Michigan hosted the highly competitive Big Ten champion- ships, however in unanticipated move the athletic department decided to forego its turn as hosts and force the team to face another road contest. They mores Bob Kris Klingler; junior Raul Molina and Rich Dopp; and se- niors Ben Verrall and Mike Mott, all of whom were among the top- ranked performers in various eArcises. Despite the depth of ta t that the team possessed, the schedule the gymnasts faced was grueling. It proved to be among the toughest in the country, as they faced 13 of the top 20 schools in the country. One of the road trips involved a meet against west coast squads, including defend- ing champion Stanford. " We needed to get some very strong away meet scores for our ranking average to qualify for regional, " Darden said. In addition, the team was in the notoriously tough Big Ten conference. The previous year, for in- stance, Michigan placed tenth in the country, however in the Big Ten this was only good enough or sixth place. The team managed to do well in most all of its meets, avoiding the key injuries or letdowns which often befall top-ranked teams. As the season wound down, the team prepared for the Big Ten championships where a strong showing entered the Big Ten championships ranked fifth in the country, but their goal remained to finish the top team in the country by the time nationals were complete. The team attempted to focus on its meets throughout the season, and given its strong show- ing it did quite well. However, it was often difficult as the team campaigned the public for support. Toni said, " We ' re just asking to survive. We don ' t have an advertising budget and no promotion budget. We ' re not asking for it [the program] back, we just want the team to exist. " So as they fought for their existence the team at- tempted to go out with a bang, so that they could at least have something to remember the season by other than the battles to save the program. Senior Seth Rubin said, " I ' ve had a great experience here. I wouldn ' t trade any of it. It ' s definitely been bittersweet. " Performing on the parallel bars is junior Rich Dopp. Dopp hoped to return to the NCAA Championships following another outstanding season. -Photo courtesy of Sports Information Sports 369 Hi Scoreboard Wrestling 6-9 overall I-?

With ten returning varsity letter winners, including All-American Seniors Bean Bormet and Steve King, the Wolverine wrestlers were ready to be a major force in the always premiere Big 10 Conference. However, Hue to an abundance of injuries throughout the kason, the team had a difficult time finding a Consistent winning combination. The team opened the season with a trip :o the Saint Louis Open. Although no team coring was kept, some individual wrestlers en- oyed success. Bormet took the 158 pound :hampionship by pinning three of his four oppo- lents, with King being stopped just short of the Heavyweight title. Senior Brian Harper placed hird at 1 50, and junior Jehad Hamdan took fourth it 190. More importantly, the tournament gave |iead coach Dale Bahr the opportunity to search br a balanced combination of letter winners and V rs tcf tl :h tarting line-up. The teambced its toughest challenge newcomers before winter break at Invitational. Here, the team enjoyed an impres- sive performance, placing fourth out of thirty-eight teams, with two individual champions. King as well as Bormet captured championships in their respective weight classes with Harper taking sec- ond at 150. Dual meet competitions began on a prom- ising note with three wins at home. Unfortunately the Big 10 season did not begin with the same success. At 7 Penn State, the team was handed a 29- 1 5 loss. The N ittany Lions sealed the victory by winning six out of ten matches, two of which went into overtime. Then, the list of injuries began. Against 6 North Carolina, the Wolver- ines were without the services of four starters, including King who had a sprained ankle and sophomore Jesse Rawls Jr. who had an injured knee. If that was not enough, a knee injury to Hamdan and a torn anterior cruciate ligament to first-year student Brandon Howe turned out as season ending injuries. " I ' ve never had a year like this. I ' ve never had a year where we had so many people go down, " explained Bahr. " It ' s so disap- pointing when another key guy gets hurt. It ' s just nother stroke of bad luck, and we have to regroup to work through it, " added co-captain d stlers ' eyes. But with the news of cljed to wrestle at the big 1 Cham- team closed out the Big 1 season by two matches. Like many times during the season, there was a look of disappoint- ment in the Rawls being cl pionships, the team began feeling optimistic, with hope of salvag the somewhat disappointing regular season. J nd they did just that. At the Championships, the team placed fourth, improv- ing on its fifth p jKe finish from a year ago. Bormet was also succesl taking the 1 58 pound champi- onships for the second straight year. The Big 10 ' s looked to be urning for the team. With Bormet, Harper, Kii Rawls, and junior Chad Biggert all qualifyir for nationals, a more than satisfying end to ffackluster season seemed conceivable. The wrestlers attempt in salvaging the son was indeed successful when the team placed a surprising fifth at the NCAA Tournament. The team was led by runner-ups Bormet and Harper, and seventh-place finisher Rawls. " Teamwise, placing in the top five in the nation is just unbe- lievable after the amount of things we went through. The kids never gave up on themselves, and we never gave up on them, " Bahr said proudly. Senior Sean Bormet, above, works on pinning his opponent.

Indeed, for many people some form of seven is their number of choice. However, to the women ' s basketball team, seven took on a much more significant meaning as it represented the number of players on their roster. Having only seven players meant that each player would get a lot of play ing time through- out the course of the season. The benefit of this was that the team was able to gain valuable game experience which it would be able to draw upon in upcoming seasons. " I think if there was one good thing about it (having only seven players), it was that they did get to play a lot and they did gam lot of experience, " said head coach Trish " We all got plenty of playing time and experie so we should know what to expect, " added first- year student Amy Johnson. However, a lack of depth proved to have its disadvantages, the most significant of which was susceptibility to fatigue. As the Big 10 portion of the season progressed, playing two games a week with only a day ' s rest in between began to take its toll. " We needed all seven players to come to play every night. Sometimes we didn ' t have that and this hurt when we had players playing forty min- utes a game and then have fatigue set in, " said Johnson. " We would stay with teams really close in the first half but in the second half they would continue to put the pressue on us and we didn ' t have the numbeWto give our kids some rest.

With five fiM year players, one sopho- more, and only one senfcc comprising the roster, inexperience was the otneijfibstacle which was difficult for the team to overc ith so many new players, Roberts and her assis- tants had to do a lot more teach- ing than in her previ- ous years as a head coach be- cause the new players did not have a host upper- show them how things were sup- posed to be done.

Despite its final r prd, Roberts stressed that she did not feel that the record was an indication of how good ne team actually was. " The bright spot was twsee seven young ladies come together.

Yet among the players that remained were a certain four juniors named Jalen, Juwan, Jimmy, and Ray (aka the Fab Four). No one would deny that they were good but people seemed to forget this when attempting to analyze how the team would do this season. With a lack of size, depth, and experience, aside from the four juniors, many felt that the team would struggle. " I like our team. It has great pride in winning. (It) hates to lose a? to win, " said head coach Steve Fisher j unior forward Ray J ackson before the season even started, " A lot of people are going to say we ' re not going to be any good, but I know the type of team we have and the hearts the players on this team have, and I ' m counting on us being pretty good.

Then came Arizona and a twenty- four point loss. " They beat our ass good, " said Crawford. " That was a little disappointing, and I think after that we were really kind of mad. " If there is ever a time during the course of a season to be mad, conference play is not a bad one. Injuries, illness, and suspension provided stumbling blocks the Wolverines had to over- come en route to a nine game Big 10 win streak which included a victory at Purdue and a 91-67 thrashing of Indiana. The bench, keyed by the emergence of first-year forward Olivier Saint- Makhtar Ndiaye, Wolverines at the top of the Big 10 at the latest point in the season during Fisher ' s tenure. Even after a loss at Wisconsin, control of the title rested in the Wolverines ' hands. Win- ning its remaining conference games would have secured U-M ' s first Big 10 title since 1986. Unfor- tunately, Purdue ' s Glenn Robinson had something to say about this as his jumper with just seconds remaining led the Boilermakers to a 95-94 victory and a first place tie. Any hope of sharing the title disappeared when the team closed out the se, losing its third game out of four; this time an overtime thriller at Northwestern. An NCAA tournament birth was cer- tain, so the question became whether or not the team would snap out of its funk and raise its level of play to make a return visit to the Final Four. Some basketball gurus feel it is best to enter the tourney on a winning streak while others feel losing the last game is better. Either way, the Wolverines were not concerned with previous successes and failures. The earlier games were behind them as they knew ahead of them lay a six e season where it was one loss and you out.

With the loss of its three top scorers and one of the nation ' s best bluelines to graduation and the NHL, the team looked to a number of newcomers to provide the Michigan veterans with solid support. Yet boasting only five seniors, the Wolverines also looked to a season of rebuilding. As the season progressed, the squad looked to be more and more confident in its play, tallying up a number of impressing wins. The outstanding play continued as the team captured its sixth straight Great Lakes Invitational title by defeating rival Michigan State in the finals. The title seemed to solidify the team as the number one team in the nation in each of the four major hockey polls. The leers then sent a message to the nation ' s best teams by sweeping then number two Lake Superior State in a two-game series for the first time in the history of Michigan hockey. " It was a big series. It gave us a lot of confidence because th ey have had so much success against us over the years. I think it showed the nation that we could keep up with the best, " said first-year left wing Jason Botterill. With the team off to its best start in history, the longest CCHA unbeaten streak to start a season was established at sixteen as was a home game unbeaten streak of twenty-four games. Individually a number of records were set. All- American senior goalie Steve Shields, a candidate for the Hobey Baker award given to the nation ' s top collegiate hockey player, recorded his 100th career victory and also established himself as both the CCHA ' s and NCAA ' s winningest goalie. Senior left wing and alternate captain David Oliver broke into the Top 20 on Michigan ' s all-time scoring list. And head coach Red Berenson became the winningest coach in Michigan his- tory. These were just a few. The Wolverines suffered only their sec- ond loss of the season at the hands of Michigan State but were able to rebound the following night with their first victory at Munn Ice Arena since 1988. But in the final three weeks of the season, the leers were handed losses by Miami, Ferris State, and another one to the Spartans. But thanks to a comfortable lead that was built through- out the season, the Wolverines were still able to clinch the CCHA title without any real threat from the competition. With a first place standing in the league, the leers were given a first round bye in the CCHA tournament. A semifinal win over West- ern Michigan set the stage for a final game against Lake Superior. The Wolverines turned out a stellar perfor- mance shutting out the Lakers 3- to win their first-ever CCHA tournament title. " This is a big thing for the se- niors, " said Botteril.

Regard- less of the time, more often than not this was one of the most difficult things for the typical college student to do each day. Now imagine looking at your clock only to see that it was only 6 a.m. Unless pulling an all-nighter, most students were not up to see such a sight, so they hit the snooze button and go back to sleep. However, for a member of the women ' s swimming and diving team, six o ' clock wake-ups were a normal occur- rence three days a week. After all, it was time for practice. In order to be successful each team member had to be dedicated even if this meant waking up early. " Each one of those people de- cides how hard they are going to work, how well they are going to discipline themselves, and what kind of energy they are going to put into the season, " said head coach Jim Richardson. " It absolutely comes down to the athletes themselves making the decisions they need to make in order to be successful.

Richardson saw this as b compliment and a challenge for his swimmers, am as he said, " We want them (our team) to build confidence in their ability to race tough even when they ' re not rested. That ' s our philosophy here. " Rested competition was not the only challenge faced by the squad, as it no longer had the leadership of the previous year ' s senior class and had many first-year swimmers whose perfor- mances were difficult to predict. How well the senior class could lead as well as how well the newcomers could perform proved to be the keys to the team ' s success. According to Richardson, the seniors lived up to their end of the bargain provid- ing the needed leadership both in and out of the pool. Said senior Karen Barnes, " I felt as a senior I had an opportunity to lead and with that oppor- tunity I was able to guide the freshmen and offer advice as they needed it. " Meanwhile, the new- comers held their own in providing valuable points at meets and having several qualifiers the NCAA Championships.

Having so many swimmers out hurt the team in its preparation for the highlight of its season the end of the year Big 10 Championships because it was unsure how members would perform after get- ting over their illness. Said Barnes, " I think we lost confidence in the team because of being nervous over how we would perform at the end of the year. " The effects of all the illness could be seen as the team, according to Richardson, had not swam particularly fast during the season. Head- ing into the Big 10 Championships, the team was an underdog, at least on paper. However, the team rose to the challenge outscoring its 1 I j nearest competitor by 140 points in capturing it eighth straight Big 10 title. " It was great for i seniors to win their fourth and for the freshmen I see what a tradition it is, " said Humphrey. one thought we would win. Yet we won so showed we could pull together as a team, " adde Barnes. While Richardson downplayed winninl eight in a row, team members were not as quick ti do so since they did not want to be the team tha broke the streak. " We all feel obligated to carry c the tradition, " said Barnes, " but we don ' t realll think about it being number eight but rathe] whether it ' s your first as a freshmen or fourth : senior.

" With the leadership of i co-captains and the experience of Marcel Kouda], Gustavo [Borges], and Royce [Sharp] |d our other returning NCAA qualifiers, couple jth the freshman potential, Michigan should y in the Top 3 at NCAA ' s, " Urbanchek had edicted. Urbanchek proved himself to be remark- |ly prophetic as the Wolverines captured their th straight Big 10 title in February and went on place third at the NCAA Championships in March. A fairly young squad, the team benefited h from the leadership of senior co-captains Rodney and Brice Kopas. " Rodney and Brice ell together. It really helped us through this year. l j een a long, tough year, and there ' s no way we pd have done what we did without Brice and Rod i . -year student Tom Dolan. As 1993 NCAA Champions, juniors Gustavo Borges and Marcel Wouda also lent valu- able experience to the team. A world record-holder in the 100m freestyle and 400m freestyle relay (short course), Borges was crucial to the team ' s success. " [Gustavo] always gets us going. When you think of Gus, you think of our relays. We ' re kind of slow on the starts, and he ' s always finishing j them [fast], " said sophomore B backstroker Royce Sharp. Perhaps the most impressive display of talent, however, was that exhibited by the team ' s first-year swim- mers. Comprising what Urbanchek deemed " one of the best recruiting classes in recent years, " the squad ' s three newcomers served as vital addi- tions to the Wolverine roster. Receiving Freshman of the Year and Big Ten Swimmer of the Year honors, Dolan dominated the 500-yard freestyle, the 400 individual medley, and the 1,650 free at both the Big 10 and NCAA Championships. First- year students John Piersma and Chris Rumley both qualified for the NCAA Championships due to outstanding performances at the Big 10 ' s in the 500 freestyle and 200 freestyle, respectively. " We said from day one that the destiny of this team depended on what the freshmen would do, and they have defi- nitely proved themselves to be immediate impact swimmers, " said Urbanchek. Borges agreed that the r swimmers made important contributions to the program during the season. " They per- formed at. They all made NCAA cuts and have made a difference for us, " said Borges. Not to be forgotten, under the direction of head coach Dick Kimball, the men ' s diving team also had a successful campaign. Led by senior Eric Lesser and junior redshirt Abel Sanchez, the divers performed remarkably throughout the regu- lar season and at both the Big 10 and NCAA Championships. A finalist in both the one- and three- meter events at the Big 10 ' s, Sanchez marveled at the intensity of the competition. " I was a little disappointed in how I performed in the three- meter. It ' s pretty tough competition. In the one-meter, I was really pleased because it isn ' t my forte. I was really happy to final and then move up to sixth and score for the team, " said Sanchez. Such dedication and competitiveness may explain why the men ' s swimming and diving teams continued to both dominate the Big 10 Conference and remain in the Top 3 nationally.

Each solar panel must be meticuously examined before any further racing can be attempted. Any ones with flaws are immediately replaced. If hile most University stu- dents spent their summer work- ing, playing, or just doing nothing, members of the Michigan Solar Car team were racing to glory. For the second straight time, Michigan cap- tured the collegiate championship. The race, called Sunrayce 93, was comprised of 34 college entries. Each was competing for $36,000 from General Motors Acceptance Corporation, the Department of En- ergy, and Westinghouse. Also in- cluded was a set of silver zinc car batteries worth $20,000 from Eagle Picher. However, the prize most cherished by the champion would be the right to compete in World Solar Challenge in November. The Solar Car team was the team that everyone was aiming to defeat at Sunrayce 93. The team travelled to Texas to begin its seven day, 1,100 mile voyage. Cars were allowed to race each day between 6:30 a.m. and 9 p.m. After that time, the cars were impounded until the following morn- ing. During this time, team mem- bers had to constantly turn the car to retain maximum sun exposure to recharge the batteries. Flaw- less execution of this assisted Michigan in jumping out to an early lead. Also contributing, was the advanced computer system in the chase van which was able to in- stantaneously read the solar battery ' s charge, chart metro- 388 Inside Sports logical data, and the amount of solar radiation absorbed by the car, the Maize and Blue, thus far. Also key, was an intimate knowl- edge of the route. Team members drove the race route several weeks in advance, allowing optimum speed without fear of burning out the batteries. The car was emblazoned with 13 sponsor logos, and an- other 29 sponsor names. These sponsors were crucial because they provided nearly all the fund- ing for the entire project. Com- pared to some schools, Michigan was well endowed. Iowa State team driver, Andy Kurriger said, " They intimidate me. Everything about them is really slick. I have nothing against them, but WOW! " Sponsors were found through an extremely dedicated business staff that was very per- sistent in their attempts to find corporate aid. Deanna Winton, En- gineering junior and one of the two primary drivers, said, " It ' s ba- sically never taking ' no ' for an answer. You keep calling and ask- ing for any way they can help you out. " Through their efforts, the team was able to generate $700,000 worth of funds, parts, and service. The team ' s two years of design and development paid off with a victory. The Maize and Blue cruised across the finish line with Deanna Winton driving. University The 500 pound Maize and Blue was placed on display at the Diag prior to departure for the World Solar Challenge in Australia. It drew large numbers of school children on field trips , as well as curious University students . President, James Duderstadt and his wife, Anne, congratulated the team and led the 22 team members in a rendition of " Hail To the Vic- tors. " Engineering junior, Chad Mentzer said, " There is nothing like this in the world. I ' d put this right up with losing virginity. " Head strategist, Eric Slimko, En- gineering senior, said, " I feel ex- hilarated, two-and-a-half years we ' ve been busting our buns and now we ' re over there sitting in the winner ' s circle. " The team did not have much time to relish its victory, for they had to leave for the World Solar Challenge in October. They will be competing against corporations such as Toyota and Nissan in a 1,400 mile road test. While some of the team races in Australia, preparations have begun for the next Sunrayce which will be in either 1995 or 1996. Either way, Michigan will be looking to defend its title, and remain in the sun. By: John Whelan Photos By: Jimmy Bosse The Maize and Blue has the corporate backing of 42 companies.

However, when James Duderstadt submitted his rec- ommendation, it was a Michigan man who received the nod to become the eighth athletic director in school history. Joseph Roberson was formally announced as the new athletic director on September 24. He took over beginning July 1, 1994- Joe was a Michigan man through and through. He held three degrees from the University and worked for the Univer- sity for 28 years. His late wife also earned three degrees from the University, and his daughter was a graduate student at the University. He served as the Vice Chan- cellor and Interim Chancellor at the Flint campus before arriving in Ann Arbor in 1984. Starting in 1984, he worked in the Office of the Vice President for Develop- ment. Since February 1992, he served as executive director of the Campaign for Michigan, a $1 billion fund-raising pro- gram. At the press conference where Roberson was nominated, University presi- dent James Duderstadt said, " Joe Roberson will be an athletic director in the finest Michigan tradition. He bleeds maize and blue. " Roberson took over a healthy and successful program. He said that his job would not be to restructure the depart- ment, but rather maintain the program and remain vigilant, making adj ustments when necessary. He aimed to achieve three goals he set. The first was to maintain a clean program. He said, " Michigan has always had a clean program and that is what this university is all about. " A second goal centered on the continued financial stability of the Michi- gan Athletic Department. Despite escalat- ing costs and the eventual cost of gender equity, he wanted to see revenue remain stable or perhaps rise. Also, Roberson was gearing up for a possible battle with the Big Ten over fees other schools receive for playing at Michigan Stadium. Roberson complained that Michigan was forced to pay more to visiting teams than any other college in the country. The Big Ten was looking into raising this cap also to make Michigan pay even more. Roberson ' s third goal was to help resolve the gender equity situation. Roberson stepped into the job at a time when many questions abounded about gen- der equity. Some questions created a great deal of national attention. Roberson has stated that economics and tradition would both be evaluated before any decision was reached. However, he said that gender eq- uity would be achieved during his tenure. He said, " It is unfortunate that any pro- grams have to be shut, however men ' s gymnastics is not recognized at the NCAA level. Also one must take into account our spring sports. We are competing against schools like Florida and Arizona that don ' t have the problems with the weather as we do. These factors must be taken into ac- count. " One proposal that was under con- sideration was a tier system. This would set different goals for different teams. Some would be geared towards national competi- tion, while others would be made into a more regionally-based program. A final tier would include participation sports so that everybody who qualified could have the opportunity to play. Roberson said, " Re- gardless of what system we go with, our goal is to build a winning program at any every level of competition. " Roberson wanted to maintain the University ' s reputation as a bastion of aca- demic and athletic development. He said, " Not many schools have paralleled the success of Michigan both on and off the field. Many call us arrogant or elitist. We are certainly not arrogant, but I would hope we are elitist. I believe ' winner ' is a good word, and that is what we have here, a proven winner. " Roberson also wanted to make sure that every athlete realized what he or she was here to accomplish. " We are trying to build well rounded student-ath- letes, not athlete-students, " he said. Joe Roberson was looking forward to keeping Michigan at the forefront of success. Based on his performance as the director of the Campaign for Michigan, there was a great indication he would be successful. After only one year, the cam- paign raised half of its goal of $1 billion. " Joe is a leader, " said Associate Athletic Director Peggy Bradley-Doppes. " If you look at the Campaign for Michigan, we ' re well ahead of schedule and there ' s a lot of en- ergy associated with that. I believe that Joe is a good manager and a good person. I think he is a man of integrity and those are all attributes that I think are important for an athletic director to have. " Roberson said, " As I look back at the legends of Michigan in terms of contri- bution, all the way back through Yost and on through Canham, Schembechler, Crisler, Weidenbach, you bet there is a lot of pressure to think that you are sitting in the same chair having to make the same decisions about the same program as the people like that. Following all these great athletic directors of the past is a tough act to top. I believe that the program is very much like a precious jewel that has been placed into my hands. My job is to main- tain it as the legends before me have. " By: John Whelan 390 Inside Sports Joe Roberson is a true Michigan man .

Photo by: John Whelan Inside Sports 391 A Crowd it ens of thousands of Midwesterners flocked to Ann Arbor during the Fall to take part in a fall ritual that had almost become a religion. On Saturdays, through- out each football season, Michigan faithful poured into town in their recreational ve- hicles, vans, and trucks to witness another season of Michigan football. They came to watch a program that had built a tradition upon its enduring success. The football team they came to watch was the finest in the country, and the place the team called home was, in itself, a spectacle to behold. Michigan Stadium was built in 1927 at a cost of only $950,000. It held only 72,000 people at the time. Those that arrived for the first game saw Michigan crush Ohio Wesleyan 33-0. However, the true test for the stadium came at the sold- out dedication game on October 22, 1927. The fans watched as the Wolverines pul- verized Ohio St., 21-0. Realizing that the stadium could hold far more than the capacity was at the time, an additional 12,401 seats were added with the construction of a temporary set of wooden bleachers. The wooden bleachers were replaced by permanent steel stands in 1949, which raised capacity to 97,239. As the stadium continued to attract capacity crowds, the University decided to add ad- 392 Inside Sports ditional seating in 1956, raising the capac- ityto 101,001. They also made additions in 1973 to 101,701, and in 1992 to 102,501, where it stands today. When fans visit the stadium today, they will find 92 rows of seating without any obstructions or posts, and no running track, so as to keep the spectator closer to the field of action. Michigan Stadium still attracted capacity crowds, setting an attendance record at the 1993 games versus Notre Dame. Attendance was 106,85 1 , breaking the attendance record set by the stadium the year before when 106,788 attended the game a gainst Michigan State. In 1992, the stadium set an average attendance record of 105,867. This record will probably not stand long, for the crowds in 1993 were on pace to shatter this record. Michigan Sta- dium attracted a crowd of over 100,000 for 115 consecutive games. The last time a crowd did not reach this mark was against Indiana on October 25, 1975. The average crowd during that span was 1 04, 75 1 . It has placed in the top five in average atten- dance every year since 1959, and has been number one since 1974. Watching great football games was not the only reason crowds came to the stadium. Tailgating at Michigan Stadium was legendary in itself, with people driving After all the crowds have left , the groundcrew goes to work to patch up the turf in time for the next game . Here they are following the Iowa game replacing turf by midfield. hours just to arrive before the game to feast. Families came to enjoy themselves before attending the games. Once in the stadium, the fans were kept amused by the student sections. During some of the slower points in the game, students could be seen passing one another up the 92 rows, and starting wars with marshmallows they had smuggled in. Michigan Stadium had been home to some of the greatest plays in football history. One recent achievement that had not yet made history was Desmond Howard ' s catch versus Notre Dame in 1991. He made a body-sacrificing catch that displayed the type of abilities that would win him the Heisman Trophy later that year. Such accomplishments kept the crowds returning to the stadium game af- ter game, and year after year. They came to watch and take part in the rich celebra- tion of football in the Michigan Stadium.

Inside Sports 393 J utitb M ichigan had many fine sports teams; here is a little trivia quiz for you: What team won eight straight Big Ten titles? No, it was not football; they only won five straight. Which team finished runner-up last year in the NCAA championships, and had seven straight top ten NCAA finishes? No, the basketball team did not even come close. The answer to both of these questions is simple: the men ' s swim team. The swim team was one of the country ' s premiere teams back in the 1950 ' s and 60 ' s, however, Michigan began to lose its national prominence as more and more top athletes headed to schools in the Sun Belt. Michigan reversed this pattern in 1982, when they hired Jon Urbanchek as the head coach. Urbanchek returned to his alma mater in 1982, after coaching 20years in Southern California. He was a team member from 1958 until 1962, and helped 394 Inside Sports win three national team titles. Since his return to Michigan, he has revived Michigan as a national powerhouse, and the only Northern school among the elite teams. He has claimed Big Ten coach of the year four times, including last year, 1993. He was also named the American Swimming Coaches Association ' s coach of the year in 1990. Not only did Michigan turn out swimmers that were the best at the collegiate level, Michigan swimmers were also among the top in the world. In the Seoul Summer Olympics in 1988, Michigan sent five swimmers. They sent five more to Barcelona in 1 992, and came away with three medals. Among these were Mike Barrowman ' s record-setting gold medal win, and silver medalists Gustavo Borges and Eric Namesnik. Urbanchek was no stranger to the international scene either. He coached in the 1984, 1988, and 1992 Olympics, and was looking forward to returning to the Olympics in Atlanta in 1996. Urbanchek said, " It is up to the coach to set the inspiration first. It is his job to put the idea into the player ' s head that he can succeed at the international level. It is always rewarding to see your players go to the top, and for swimmers there is nothing higher than the Olympics. " Attracting swimmers to Michigan may not always be the easiest task when competing against schools like UCLA, Stanford, Texas, and Arizona. Urbanchek, though, found ways to overcome the handicap of being a Northern school. He said, " The thing that swimmers are looking for most when choosing a school, is getting a top-notch education. Most swimmers do not progress to the Olympic level, so earning a degree while attending here is very crucial. " Urbanchek went on to say, " Jon Urbanchek and Royce Sharp kid around during practice. It may be all fun and games at practice, but when it comes time to compete , Sharp , a member of the 1 992 Olympic team, is like a shark in the water. Photo Courtesy Randy Wendt Academics is the top priority of the team, and the swimmers truly demonstrate what it means to be student-athletes. " In fact, the grade point average of the team overall was a very respectable 3.0. Another factor in attracting top athletes to the University was the support and assistance that the University provided. Michigan was the only school in the country that had a pool operated and used only by the athletic department: Canham Natatorium. The University also had the best training facility in the country including a renovated weight room. With assets like these, any liabilities that the University had were easily overcome. Despite all the achievements and accolades his teams have won, the swim team received little fanfare about its remarkable program, and little support from the student body. It would be easy to understand Urbanchek ' s frustration about being overshadowed by the football and basketball teams. However, this was not the case. Urbanchek was in fact quite happy with the support and recognition his team received. " The University provides us with great support and a great facility, " Urbanchek said. " Swimming is a passive sport, out of the limelight and not exactly a popular one with the fans, " he said. He believed that as long as it was rewarding for the swimmers, it was well worth the effort, regardless of how many fans they attract. Urbanchek described his Olympic experiences as being very special. He said, " The location really doesn ' t make that much of a difference after a while. The bulk of the time is spent within the Olympic Village, and that is where the true friendships are formed. There is a great spirit of camaraderie and fellowship in the village. The added bonus of having Michigan athletes there makes the entire experience even more rewarding. It brings me a lot of enjoyment to go to the Olympics with some of my players, " he said. The past two Olympics, had sent a total of ten swimmers from the University, more than any other school in the country. Urbanchek was not surprised by his swimmers ' strong performances at the Games. Following Mike Barrowman ' s record-setting gold medal performance, Urbanchek said, " It was not a surprise at all. Mike paid the price by practicing to earn that medal. You just know that he will get that medal as you watch him practice. He earned every bit of that medal. " Urbanchek was hoping to add one more thing to his long list of achievements: a NCAA team title. The team was the 1993 runner-up, and had been in the top ten for each of the last seven, but they had yet to achieve their crowning glory. Despite not winning the team title, the team almost met its goal of winning several individual titles. They captured five individual titles at the NCAA ' s in 1993. As good as the team was, it was hard to win the title because of a lack of depth in each event compared to the competing schools. The future looked bright for the program. Despite having lost four team members from a team that included ten all-Americans, it still maintained a great core of talent. In addition to several returning members, Urbanchek recruited several of the top high school swimmers in the country. He said, " With the leadership of our co-captains and the experience of Marcel (Wouda), Gustavo (Bourges) and Royce (Sharp) and our other returning NCAA qualifiers, coupled with the freshman potential, Michigan should remain in the top three at the NCAA ' s. " However, 1995 was predicted to be the year that Michigan would finally win its national title. Urbanchek was most pleased with the consistency of the program. Year after year of continued success was not that easy to achieve, especially with some of the handicaps Urbanchek had overcome. He had rebuilt the Michigan program into one of the finest in the country. By: John Whelan Inside Sports 395 ii T Xhe he 1993 men ' s gymnastics team finished the season with an impressive performance at the final meet of the year, the Big Ten Conference Championship. This success came following a disappoint- ing season filled with injuries. However three Wolverines, Kris Klinger, Rich Dopp, and Raul Molina, all performed well enough to eventually advance to the Nationals level. Despite this success, the team re- turned home to the worst news they could possibly face. The University Athletic Department had decided to drop the men ' s gymnastics program. The department cited several reasons including: the approach- ing deadline for the gender equity man- date, the reduction of Michigan high school gymnastics programs, and departmental restrictions. Following an appeal hy the team, the athletic advisory board decided to al- low competition to continue through the end of the 1993-94 season. After which, the team will lose its varsity status, and women ' s soccer will be promoted from club to varsity status. This was done in order to meet the Gender Equity Act passed by the Big Ten in June 1992. It mandated that women athletes must comprise 40% of the program by 1997. The University stood, in 1993, at a 67 33 percent male female ratio. Even with the addition of women ' s soccer and the deletion of men ' s gymnastics, the ratio stood only at 65 35. No one was willing to speculate what other programs would be the next to go. Though the department needed only to submit a plan to reach equity by June of 1993, the department got a headstart on reaching the 1997 compli- ance deadline, by making the cut so soon. Advisory board member, Bruce Karnopp, explained that the board has little interest in waiting for the NCAA to come to a decision about whether or not to sever ties with the men ' s gymnastics. Men ' s coach, Bob Darden, responded by saying, " It is a beancounter ' s approach to make itself look good. " Despite still being above the de- sired ratio, the University was looking into promoting men ' s soccer to an intercolle- giate sport with no department grants-in- aid for the 1995 season. Darden said, " This fact blows the gender equity excuse out of the water. This is supposed to increase women ' s opportunities not kill men ' s. " Iowa ' s women ' s gymnastics coach, Diane Demarco, added, " You don ' t need to cut sports to satisfy the dictates of gender equity; there are other options. " In the press release concerning the drop of the program, Athletic Director, Jack Weidenbach said, " When we studied the trends at the high school level, we see a drop in participation among the second- ary schools in gymnastics. " Darden agreed with this statement also, but counters with the fact that almost all colleges recruit men gymnasts from private clubs, not from high schools. He said, " Everyone on our team was on a club team when they were in high school. You need that twelve month train- ing routine the clubs allow to get to the college and NCAA level. " The men ' s representative for the United States Gym- nastics Federation (USGF), Robert Cowen, said of the athletic department ' s state- ment, " That ' s the stupidest thing I ' ve ever The 1993 team lost none of its players to graduation. Among the returning team members was All American Brian Winkler. Winkler was hampered throughout the 1993 season by injuries most of the year. heard... It ' s a wonderful dodge. There are 4,500 private clubs registered with USGF, and we estimate another 10,000 clubs that are not registered with us. " Another reason cited for drop- ping the program was financial consider- ations. Darden disagreed, " The financial issue is not an issue. The athletic depart- ment found an unexpected $1.6 million operating surplus despite all their facility improvements this year, and they expect a profit of $2.5 million profit in 1 994, which would have gone toward expected deficits in 1995 and 1996, " said Darden. In 1993, the Men ' s Gymnastics program comprised less than one percent of the overall bud- get. The sport that took its place, women ' s soccer, had a budget that was one third larger than the men ' s gymnastics budget. All of the athletes who had scholarships 396 Inside Sports m. when the program ended retained those scholarships. Just when it seemed it could not get worse, it did. At the beginning of the 93-94 school year, Weidenbach an- nounced that Michigan would forego its turn to host the Big Ten men ' s gymnastics championship, as had been scheduled. Weidenbach said the decision not to host the men ' s championship was based on the fact that the Big Ten is considering turn- ing to a co-ed format for future gymnastics championships. " It did not seem logical to have a men ' s and women ' s joint champi- onship, " Weidenbach said, " since we are dropping our men ' s team next year. " How- ever, the joint championship was not to be added until 1995, a year after the men ' s program was dropped. Corey Huttenga, a junior gymnast, said, " This is a stab in the back. It appears Weidenbach is against us. " The loss of men ' s gymnastics means that the athletic program loses 10 gymnasts honored for their academic per- formance, 5 of whom were all- Big Ten student athletes. Former athletic director, Don Canham, was sharply opposed to the drop. " The policy is to drop a men ' s sport, start a women ' s sport. When is that going to end? That ' s no policy. How can you be for the student-athlete and then knock out 25 kids. If I was athletic director, I would try to find a way to keep everyone playing, " said Canham. Despite all the adversity that was going on around them, the team tried to focus on the 1994 season, a season that held much promise. They lost no one to graduation from the previous season, and were widely regarded as a national cham- pionship contender. The final season pro- vided a chance for the team to go out and prove their winning ability. By: John Whelan Photo Courtesy of Sports Information Brian Winkler performs on the parallel bars.

Hundreds of activities, organiza- tions, and groups covering almost every possible pursuit awaited them. After stu- dents joined one though, many realized that the time commitment and responsi- bility did not permit them to attend to their studies as best they could. However, there were many dedicated students who bal- anced both academic and other interests. Among these other interests, none were more demanding or grueling than athletic teams, club, varsity, or otherwise. Between practices, travel, training, actual competition, and fatigue from it all, it was often difficult to imagine anyone excelling at both athletics and academics. However, a few people ranked among the best at both their academic and athletic pursuits. Among these few, two stood out because of their accomplishments and the tremen- dous balance in their everyday lives. Leah Neiderstadt spent the bulk of her weekends on the road traveling to other colleges to play for the Women ' s Rugby team. While many students headed to the Grad, UGLi, or Angell to study, Leah got much of hers done on the road and at the game sites. She said, " Since we only get one home meet a year, you learn how to study in the car and everybody respects that when they see someone else studying. It is still hard to get everything done though. Sunday nights are always rough after a game and a long drive, it is hard to come home to study all night. Oftentimes some- thing doesn ' t get done. " Leah did not get a chance to come home and unwind like other students be- cause she was a Resident Director in Markley Resident Hall. As an RD she had to supervise several RA ' s as well as main- tain order in the dorm. " Keeping the peace can be tough when there are big problems, as there have been this year. Most of the players on the team have jobs outside of rugby, so I am in the same boat as every- body else. " Leah needed to maintain a job because rugby was one of the sports at the University which had club status. This meant that the players also had to concern themselves with fundraising and other fi- nancial aspects of travel and competition. Leah, however, did not mind club status because, she said, " If rugby were a varsity sport at the University, most of us on the team would play here because they could recruit the players with actual high school experience. Very few people on the team have experience prior to coming to the University. Most are playing it for the first time. " Leah played all four years at the University. She became involved after vis- iting the rugby stand at Festifall of her freshman year. She said, " I was looking for some activities to get involved in, and they were extremely persistent in getting me to join. I actually joined just to get them to quit calling me. " After four years she said that she learned to coordinate her time even when it seemed as though she was bogged down with club meetings, practices, and aca- demics. She said, " I get a lot more done when I am busy. In fact the free time I do have is often wasted because I let myself be lazy. " Obviously Leah did not have much free time, but her efforts paid off her senior year when she was recognized for her ac- complishments. She won a Rhodes schol- arship, which allowed her to attend Oxford University in England the following fall. Ed Geheres also found a balance while at Michigan. He rowed for the Crew team all four years, which was no easy feat considering the rigors rowers were under year-round from training and competition. Like Leah though, he too found a way to balance athletics with academics, a job, and other organizations. His senior year, Ed worked 15 hours a week, and served as vice president for the Native American Studies Association and the Mortar Board (a Na- tional Honor Society). Despite all of these activities, Ed didn ' t let his academics or rowing suffer. He said, " Crew is no longer a choice for me. It is part of my life. Missing practice is not an option for me. " Ed became addicted to rowing his freshman year. He came to the University looking for a challenge and Crew fulfilled that desire. He said, " Most people come to the University with the plan to do well in school, so it is what they do beyond academics that is key. " It was during his freshman year that Ed learned from the older team members how to bal- ance his time. He said, " There would be people studying at all times. On the road and even at the races. " Following their example, Ed also devotes a lot of time on the road to his studies. He and his laptop were inseparable when traveling, permit- ting him to keep up no matter how far they travelled. Like Rugby, travel became all too common on the Crew team because they too had club status. Because of this, Ed had to pour more time and money into his already packed schedule. However, Ed managed to squeeze it in. He said, " the more things I have on list, the more effi- cient I become at time management. When I do have free time though, I think I appre- ciate it more. All the small things become more important, and are less likely to be taken for granted. " As Ed looked to the future, he hoped to continue his rowing and training with the hopes of one day making the National team. " Knowing that National ' s are the ultimate goal makes practice now seem all the more important. It ' s always easier to train for something when you know that there is something beyond that you want to achieve. Whatever I do, I always seek a challenge and attempt to push the limits. " These two student-athletes ex- emplified what Michigan had to offer: tre- mendous academics, but oh so much more.

From the beginning of the fall term, through the last days of finals, there was an athletic contest or game going on somewhere. In each of these games, normal everyday students had the chance to be a star, if only for a day. Swimmers swam with as much effort as the varsity ' s 3 team in the country. Basketball players all dreamed of taking part in Part Two of the Freddie Hunter Story. Freddie Hunter went down in IM lore as an IM basketball player on a team called Freddie and 7 Dwarfs. He was spotted by the varsity ' s coaching staff, and given a spot on the team. By his senior year, Freddie had earned a full scholarship. LSA sophomore Jacob Gin, who played several sports, said, " Since all the varsity teams here are so good, it is the only way someone like me can get out there and play in a real game. Plus winning at anything is always a nice benefit. " IM sports ranged from the ever- popular basketball, flag football, and vol- leyball, to lesser-known sports like walleyball, archery, orracquetball. Regard- less of how unimportant games may have seemed, each one was a battle. Players travelled all over campus at all hours to reach game sites. While most games were held at such common sites as the IM build- ing, the sports coliseum, and Palmer or Mitchell fields, ice hockey was played until 1 AM at Yost. Teams approached competitive play in several different manners. Some teams deemed it necessary to practice on their own prior to league play, while others simply showed up at game time. Steve Ouwinga, a senior LSA student who par- ticipated on several teams in the five on five tournament, said, " The fun part is getting to play a competitive game of bas- ketball. But of course, winning is nice also. " Not every sport had team compe- titions.

When teams were required though, there were plenty of leagues in which they could play. Basketball, for example, had leagues rang- ing from co-ed, independent, fraternity, to women ' s teams. The leagues were usually also divided up according to the degree of experience the teams had. This was to ensure good competitive games where no one team dominated all the others. Teams were comprised of friends, roommates, fra- ternities, sororities, and even strangers. They all competed for a chance to win the title of champions and a t-shirt.
