O LI 1 practice on the Hu- ron River is the high- light of the season for Chang because " the leaves are beau- tiful and the weather is perfect for row- ing. " During the winter months, the team trained indoors on the Ergometers. Mike Cutri l^r lV before noon than most students byj. StUQent Tammy Chang is eager to learn and ready for any- thing this college experience can provide. A member of the Crew team, which is widely known as one of the most challenging sports programs at the University, she shows her strength and determination. Her first thoughts in the painfully early morning hours when she wakes up for practice are, " Ergometer (indoor rowing machine) test today. I need to beat my last time.... I need to beat my last time. " When she beats her last time by 14 seconds she thinks, " Not bad at all. It is going to be a good day. " Contrary to what Ls I Cs seems humanly possible, her standards for herself do not get lower as the day goes on. Chang takes advantage of free moments in class to participate in student govern- ment. In Great Books discussion she has " a chance to pass around the Communication Committee of the Michigan Student Assembly (MSA) petition to improve the CCRB. " She knows she has to get a lot of signatures and this task is never far from her mind. When she returns home after getting her Chinese 301 exam back (109100.. .it IS a U* good day) she discovers a refrigerator filled with fruit, sandwich meat, and juice; her Agji~,7gl parents must have visited. Her sister, with whom Chang lives, confirms that fact. " I love how my parents came to visit. I adore college life, but it ' s nice to have them come by and bring food. Man, they will make any excuse to come visit, " she grins. " It ' s comforting to know they are there for me, yet I don ' t have to give up any of the freedom. This is the life! " She is off to another Crew practice before she knows it. Afterwards, she is able to grab a glimpse of Quantum Leap. Chang remarks, it ' s a " darn good show. " After dinner, Chang attends another Great Books discussion, just to get another perspective for the midterm. " It was awesome to go to Josh ' s discussion for Great Books. I never realized how different each class is. I guess I had this feeling that the entire university was learning pretty much the same stuff I was, j ust at a different pace. Boy was a I wrong, " she admits. " I really got a lot out of attending their session. I might even do it again! " When she gets home, she recalls that there is a lecture at Rackham the next day at 4 P.M. " Can I fit it into my schedule? " She asks herself, afraid for a moment that she might miss something interesting. " Yes, " she sighs in relief when she figures out she can stop by and check it out. Chang ' s motto must be " carpe diem " as she milks her entire day for all it is worth. " It ' s been a long day, but a good day, " she reflects. Chang remembers that her first lecture the next day isn ' t until 10 A.M. and she can get some real sleep tonight, really IS a good day. It really early 42 Tammv Chane

' j Nate Bozen ipthome- Itime ; dance Michigan an irnhome [ger strikes, I pizza " lomework RC living by Jamie Weitzel Iwelve hours from now, Matthew Kuan-Yao Huang will be hurling his friend Stephanie through the air to the beat of jazzy music. 14 hours from now, he will be savoring a piece of " real pizza " with his friend Steve. 19 hours from now, Huang gets to come back to bed if he ' s lucky. But now it is 8:30 Monday morning and he must yank himself from his " cavern of hibernation " and head to Residential College (RC) Intensive Spanish to learn more about the subjunctive tense. First, however, he must find out what is going on in the world. After showering, he enjoys his morning ritual of glimpsing " Sports Center " on ESPN and " Headline News. " Huang is heading into the hardest part of his day; it is a Monday, after all, and everyone knows how fun they can be. He comments, " The morning was the most stressful part of my day because it was a Monday morning. Rolling out of bed at 8:30 on a Monday is one of the most stressful things anyone could ever do. " By the afternoon, Huang tries valiantly to start studying. The RC is an exciting but challenging place; academic success is the result of hard work and long nights. Starting at 4 P.M., the books are open. " It doesn ' t work, " Huang decides after awhile, deciding to check E-mail instead. " There are too many people running in and out of my The fact that his classes are all in the same building has not stopped Matthew Kuan-Yao Huang from be- coming involved on campus, dorm room. " He finds his Inbox filled with 23 messages; two of these are from people he actually knows. Huang then checks out the course guide on the Web to see which RC courses look interesting for the winter term. " Photography and a couple of acting classes, " he thinks as he window shops for his academic future. It ' s one of many hours that Huang and many other University students lose to the computer screen, commu- nicating and planning their lives electronically. Swing Dancing at 8 P.M. makes it all worthwhile. The music, the laughter, and his friendship with his dancing partner, Stephanie, add just the right release to a long, hard Monday. The Swing Dancing lessons are hosted by Dance Marathon. " This was a blast, as Swing Dancing always is, " Huang explains. " The best part of my day was Swing Dancing because it is not class, not studying, and it is a great way to blow off steam. " Huang has enough steam left, however, to not run out until the wee hours of the morning. The first-year student usually eludes his bed until 3 A.M. on weekdays, 5 A.M. on weekends. The most surprising part of the day for Huang is when his " roommate, who doesn ' t have class on Monday, was up and out of bed before 1:30 P.M. " Recalling the late hours that are kept in the room, it is more than unusual. " This is unheard of in 301 Prescott, " Huang laughs. Inside Michigan Life 41
