" Lev Mandel, LSA sopho- lore Choose Your Styk alking through the Diag on the way to class, University students found themselves on a runway of sorts as many students displayed the latest fashions in clothing and hairstyles. " I see a ton of people dressed up for no apparent reason, " said first-year pre-medicine student Courtney Palmer. " The trends are present everywhere with things like Capri pants. Girls look like they walked out of magazines. " The main fall fashions seemed to be the classic tucked-in plaid shirts and blue jeans for men as women sported Capri pants, lots of black and matching cardigan and tank top sets. Men cut their hair short and brushed it forward with the George Clooney look as women cut their hair in sophisticated layered looks streaked with vari- ous color highlights. Some students found the emphasis on fashion to be an asset to University life. " The fashion from New York and Europe adds another aspect to college life, " said sophomore business major Seth Timen. " It makes people feel good to look good. The only drawback of fashion is that it is very expensive. " Other students expressed concern with the fashion choices of students. " People here can not dress, " said LSA sophomore Lev Mandel, " Frat boys all dress as Abercrombie clones with white hats. We need a fashion police to arrest people. " " It is annoying how trendy people are. Trendy is overdone cool, " said sophomore Russian major Ben Hess. " People at this school need to show some individuality and stop worrying about name brands. " Still other students found that the University was a mecca of individuality expressed through fashion. " Everyone has their own personal style, " said senior movement science major Mikerra Bostic. " Retro has been consistent for the last few years due to music. There is a variety in fashion because students are more concerned about edu- cation than their dress. " Although a walk across campus allowed stu- dents to witness the latest fashion trends, there were still plenty of students who chose to be comfortable rather than trendsetters. Sweatpants and warm ups were as likely to be worn as black pants and trendy shirts. " My first priority is comfort so I dress casu- ally, " Palmer said. Just as the students of the University varied greatly, the fashion opinions and choices were unique for each student. Some students chose to stand out as individuals by wearing unique clothing. Other students joined the latest fashion trends and used class as an excuse to show off their latest clothes. Still others rolled out of bed five minutes before class, threw on sweats and a t-shirt and ran to class without any concern for fashion. by Jaime K. Nelson Michigan Life 31

fter years of anticipation, thi linal signifi- cant birthday was celebrated bv i : erclassmen at the University. Students ..el ' i-d their 21st birthdays in numerous wrr " . ihe semesters. For most, the final birthc ' .r- o mark the legaliza- tion of drinking was cch ated at a bar or party with friends. " Most people do 2 1 nots and end up puking, " said first year LSA student Stephanie Bloom. " Some make T-shirts with the name of the shots written on it. " It was common for University students to go to the bars the night before their birthday in order to drink their first legal drink at midnight. " I went to the bar the night before my birthday so I could drink at midnight, " said business school junior Chris Wise. " I lost count at 42 shots and was drunk for four days after. " Common bars to visit included Mitch ' s Place, Score Keepers and Rick ' s. " It is not unusual to have a twenty-first birth- day every night at the bar, " said Mitch ' s Place employee and senior sports management major Mike Melfi. " Most people come to the bar with family and friends with the goal of downing 21 enior Melissa Lippman celebrates her 21st birth- day at Rick ' s. A blow-job shot was one of many shots taken that night. row of shots awaits its next victim. In cel- ebration, students bought their friends shots for their 21st birthdays. shots ranging from buttery nipples to kamikazes. Most bars don ' t have deals but the birthday person never has to pay for anything them- selves. " Others chose to celebrate with friends at house parties. " My 21st was on an off night for the bars so my friends had a house party for me, " said Indus- trial Operations Engineering junior Mike Gluhanich. " Everyone brought me alcohol and I didn ' t have to find a way home once I was drunk. " Friends were involved in almost all birth- day celebrations. " I had a wonderful 21st, " said junior general studies major Jack Stead. " My friends put on clown outfits and danced around. It was better than being at the bars. " Some students chose not to drink on their 21st birthdays. " I ' m not much of a partier, " said an anonymous psychology junior. " I didn ' t want to make myself sick like so many people do. I stayed in and just talked to my family on the phone like Shelley Skopit any other birthday. I guess it is weird that I can drink legally now, but I didn ' t feel the need to get drunk that night. " Many students expressed that drinking le- gally was a let down after all the years of drinking undercover. It was also disappointing because 21 was the last significant birthday until the thirties and forties. Those who were excited for the firs legal drink often made large productions out o the big day. It was common for countdowns to b posted in houses and the birthday night highl ' publicized. When the birthday finally arrived most chose to celebrate in grandiose style wit] family and friends. by Jaime K. Nelson sindent i 32 21st Birthdays Shelley Skopit Kristy Parker
