It is the four- teenth of April, and many stu- dents have been waiting for this day. It is the last day of classes, the freedom of the end of winter term is in sight, and tonight is the annual run- ning of the Naked Mile. The women linger among the crowds, watching the first throngs of runners as they round the corner and head into the West Hall Arch. And then, while the rest of the audience is preoccupied with the spectacle, the women begin to undress. They do it quickly, as if removing their inhibitions along with their clothes. And once naked, they push through the crowd, who has, by now, noticed them and parts for them to pass. The women join the other run- ners, taking off for the annual dash to the Cube. " It ' s just something you have to do at least once, " one of the women says as she passes by, clothes clutched in a free arm. " You can ' t come to U of M and not do it. " And in fact, every year since 1 982, students have been run- ning the Naked Mile in the dark night following the last day of classes. Starting at Washtenaw Avenue and Hill Street at the Rock itself an illicit campus tradition stu- dents annually make the run down Washtenaw to South University Avenue, through CONTINUED the Arch, past the Shapiro and ON PAGE 14 Graduate Libraries, and across State Street to the Cube. The STORY Michigan Life 13 STORY CON IINTT.D FROM PAGE 13 event has grown from a Uni- versity-wide event into an at- traction annually gathering over 10,000 spectators, in- cluding those eager to capi- talize off of college students disrobing in public. Recently, runners have had their pic- tures show up in tabloid maga- zines and, more commonly, on the Internet. Thisyear, however, a seem- ingly carefree campus tradi- tion somehow turned sour. In the past, students were sim- ply informed by University of- ficialsthat the Naked Mile was not sponsored by the Univer- B ' 1 sity, and that students should CAELAN JORDAN be aware of the consequences of the run, such as unsolicited appearances on Internet por- nography sites. And then offi- cials looked the other way. Not so anymore. Students d o TRADITIONS were warned both by Ann Arbor police and the Univer- sity that participation in the run would result in arrest and prosecution. Because of the high publicity the warnings received, many students thought twice about running; as a result, fewer students ran the Naked Mile than in recent years. Some students who did participate, however, saw the warnings in a different light. " The illicitness is just going to make me run harder, " said an anonymous senior. Many students who did run in the event carried cloth- ing with them as a precau- tion. Ann Arbor police issued statements saying that arrests would be made only if the offender refused to put on clothing at the time of the citation. " Theycan ' tjustsingle out a few people, " said junior political science major Karl Hungus. " They can ' t arrest everyone. " Other students decided to take a more active role in the Naked Mile by volunteering to staff the event, protecting students and the audience alike by offering security. " We ' re here to keep people from getting groped. If secu- rity does a good job, the Uni- versity will allow the tradition to continue, " said junior psy- chology major Chessa Rosario. The tradition of the Naked Mile did stand in jeopardy at theend of winterterm, simply because so few students did participate in the event. De- creased participation could lead to the conclusion of the tradition on campus. Likewise, questions sur- rounding the propriety of the Naked Mile on campus also enveloped the activities of Hash Bash, held thefirst week- end in April every year. As always, the legalization dem- onstration generated a lot of debate from all sides of the protest. " The University cannot hold this event on campus anymore. It is too controver- sial, " said a freshman student who wished to remain anony- mous. Hash Bash, however, was less threatened because it is less of a student activity than the Naked Mile is. Hash Bash attracts more people from out- side the University, while the Naked Mile ' s runners gener- ally come from the University student body. Regardless of their place on campus, however, Hash Bash and the Naked Mile both made their mark on campus life in April, just as they have for many years. As campus traditions, they have attracted a wide range of attention to the University, putting the school in a national spotlight twice in the same month. 14 Hash Bash and Naked Mile Counting cash, a street vendor displays hemp items.

Both could be epito- mized by a packed football stadium. On April 29, 2000, under the warm spring sun- shine, graduating students were awarded degrees at the spring commencement cer- emonies held at Michigan Stadium. Processing in as Uni- versity students, they recessed out as University alumni. When asked if ready to leave, Greg Ng, a Business School graduate, replied, " I know that it is time for me to leave and to face the working world. " After singing the national anthem which opened the cer- emony, graduates were greeted with speeches by University President Lee Bellinger, student speaker Jamie Katz, and the chosen BY CAROLINE MENG commencement speaker, AND Dav,d Halberstam, Pulitzer CAELAN ORDAN Prize-winning war correspon- dent. Finally, thedegrees were awarded as the graduates were generally recognized. For their first time as alumni, graduates sang " Hail to the Victors, " concluding the cer- emony, and then filed out of the stadium to depart in vari- ous directions.

" More than ever before. " All part of the fall ritual of starting classes again. The year proved the same, with lines outside campus bookstores streaming down the sidewalks. " I don ' t really mind it, " saidjuniorengineer- ing major James Boomis. " You have to expect it. " With the new semester, students had to face new classes, new professors, and sometimes new schedules. Particularly with the compli- cations surrounding the new Wolverine Access, questions arose and students often did not know where to turn, add- ing insult to injury. " I am so confused with the new registration system that I am hoping I won ' t have to drop any classes or anything, " said junior elementary educa- tion major Marissa Neidlinger. Despite whatever obstacles that came with summer fad- ing into fall, the school year opened and students returned back to class. BY CAELAN JORDAN Michigan Life 19 I II Cai to A STADI BY CORTNEY DUEWEKE Hoards of people - stu- dents, alumni and visitors - lined the streets in their journey to the stadium, dressed from head to toe in maize and blue " Michi- gan " garb. Scalpers paced in front of the Union and clustered on State Street, while children and adults packed into Michigan Sta- dium to be part of one of the largest crowds in the country on that day. The contagious crackle of ex- citement throughout Ann Arbor on a football Satur- day was obvious even to newcomers. Football was a deep- rooted tradition in Ann Arbor, and became a word that was inextricably linked with the University ' s name. Many believed that no other college in the coun- try had the fortunate bal- ance of exceptional aca- demics and athletics that the University had. " We have the best foot- ball team in the country, " said Andrew Sigman, a re- cent economics graduate. " Around the community, you can see that everyone ' s excited. I still go to every football game; I don ' tthink I ' ve missed a game the whole time I ' ve been here. " Sigman said he no longer had a set " football Saturday " schedule, as many people did, but noted that the long trek to the stadium from North Cam- pus was formerly part of his usual routine. " We had to ride the bus and walk, " he explained. " I was usu- ally ready to go to sleep by r g y Catching a football, two students partici- pate in tradition before a football game. For many fans, football Saturdays were filled with their own aspirations of athletic stardom; students played impromptu games across campus before the game at Michigan Stadium. photo by Mike Cutri the time I got there, but then I gotall excited again.

All-night study sessions often involved periodic impromptu naps. photo by Mike Cutri 24 All-Nighters UP ALL Both a friend and a foe to every college student, the all- nighter loomed over the aca- demic and social lives of the University. Over the course of their four years at the Univer- sity, students pulled all- nighters for a variety of differ- ent reasons. From the mid- term all-nighter to the party all-nighter to the hangout- with-friends all-nighter, it seemed for some students that they never did find time to sleep when it was actually dark outside. Said first-year LSA student Paul Janiczek II of his all- nighter, " I barely woke up in time for class and then I fell asleepaboutfourtimes. Itwas a mess. " The success of an all- nighter seemed to lie in the advantages of caffeine. Some students drank coffee or caffeinated beverages, while still others resorted to caffeine pills. Campus coffee shops like the Union ' s Cava Java were open late to accomodate stu- dents in search of caffeine. Yet, not all students pro- crastinated to the point of needing to stay up all night. " I know a lot of guys who pull all-nighters on a regular ba- sis, " said Steve Sharpe, a jun- ior philosophy major. " When I see them the next day, they look terrible and can ' t stay awake during class. They may as well have just slept all day. It would have done them more good than trying to learn ' in a half-stupor. " Still, studying all night was a common occurrance, par- ticularly around exam time. " If you have work to be done then you have to do it, no matter what, " said Rishi Seth, a junior economics major. However, students did not stay up all night just to study; the early morning hours saw just as much play as they did work. " Partying all night is the best, " said Jose Romero, a first-year aeronautical engi- neering major. " I go from one BY ROB place to another and I never McTEAR get tired. When you have a bunch of friends with you, the time just flies. " " I love to just sit and talk all night. It ' s a great way to get to know someone better, " said first-year political science major Karen Schwartz. Regardless of the reason, the all-nighter remained a facet of University life, one that was nearly inescapable during the course of four col- lege years. Michigan Life 25 CAMPUS For most first-year and sopho- more students, tracking down alchohol for weekend party- ing was a challenge. The scar- city of twenty-one-year-olds in the residence halls often complicated the matter. How- BY ever, once students reached BONNIE GOLD the golden age of twenty-one, alcohol became surprisingly and seductively accessible. Out of all nights out at the bar, 21st birthdays usually stood out as the most excit- ing. While some took it easy and tossed a few free drinks back with their friends, others took drinking to a dangerous extreme. " On his 21st birth- day, my friend Kevin had 23 shots in four hours, all while sharing pitchers with our group, " said economics se- nior Mike Schmick. After recovering from their rite of passage, drinking be- came an everyday occurrence for many students. With the campus bars offering numer- ous specials, seniors were of- ten too tempted to concen- trate on homework. Tuesday nights at Mitch ' s and Thurs- day nights at Scorekeepers became weekly traditions, the staple of every senior ' s social life. Even those who did not frequent the bars spent many of their weeknights drinking with their friends at home, quickly making their way through cases of Labatt ' s. Once the weekends rolled around, however, many up- perclassmen gathered around the kegs at house parties. Not only did this give students a chance to catch up with old friends, but it was also much cheaper than spending time at the bars. Though nights of drinking often blended into one an- other, every student had a few hilarious moments that will never fade from their memory. A senior who pre- ferred to remain anonymous said, " Onedrunken night, one of my friends was making me laugh so hard that I just had to get away. The only thing was that I was too drunk to walk away, so I had to crawl. As I neared the staircase in our apartment, he thought that I was falling, so he grabbed the ankle of my pants to stop me. Although he was really trying to help me, he ended up pull- ing down my sweatpants and my boxers. He let go in shock, but that just sent me flying down the stairs, completely bare-assed. " Although most students ' drunken memories were not quite as wild as this, the University ' s upperclassmen spent many of their most memorable nights partying, alcohol in hand. 26 The Bar Scene Spinning amidst customers, a waitress at Touchdown Cafe brings drinks.

Thursday nights often involved drinking with just a few friends, photo by Abby Johnson LAID-BACK appea Weekday, or weekend? On campus, Thursday nights seemed to fall in that in-be- tween time: too close to the weekend for any serious study sessions, yet close enough to weekdays that students needed a time to relax from the stresses of a week of classes. Regardless, if students did CAELAN JORDAN choose to study, campus li- braries were generally quieter than ever because other stu- dents were already diving into the weekend. BY " I love Thursdays. They ' re myfavorite night of the week- end, " said ISA sophomore Nicole Gopoian. " Othernights I wear skirts or nice pants, but I always wear jeans on Thurs- days. It ' s a more relaxed at- mosphere. " Even if students were not out on the party circuit, Thurs- days still held a laid-back ap- peal because of theapproach- ing weekend. " Idon ' tconsiderThursdays to be the weekends, but there ' s definitely less motiva- tion to do homework, " said junior computer science ma- jor Jessica Dow. " I usually just do homework and stuff, but sometimes I ' ll just relax at home and hang out with friends. " Whatever students chose to do on Thursday nights, the fact that so many students invested so much energy in devising schedules without classes on Fridays was testi- mony to the appeal of Thurs- day nights. Michigan Life 29 MOVING Caribou Coffee. Cava Java. Einstein Bros. Espresso Royale. Lining State Street from the Union north to Liberty Street, a crackerjack box of coffee houses existed, giving students a huge choice in where to spend their money. And in early spring, a new competitor joined the market: BY Starbucks Coffee, the Seattle- CAELAN JORDAN based national chain idealized for its strong flavor, mocked for its seemingly total take- over of the caffeine business. When Starbucks moved in at the corner of State and Liberty, the buzz of their cappacino makers was met with shouts from protesters upset that the national chain threatened to steal business from local stores. " When I want coffee, I go to whichever coffeehouse is closest to me at the time. But Starbucks isn ' t a place I like to study like I do at the other ones. I really like to read in Espresso Royale, but Starbucks is always too noisy, " said jun- ior anthropology major Erin Fisher. Also on State Street, Ben Jerry ' s opened a new ice cream franchise right next to Stucchi ' s, an Ann Arbor ice cream tradition. Ben Jerry ' s, although a national chain, seemed to appeal because it offered the popular flavors students knew from the famous ice cream pints sold in grocery stores. " I go to Ben Jerry ' s to get mint chocolate cookie if I ' m in the mood, but otherwise I al- ways go to Stucchi ' s just ' cause I ' ve always gone there ever since I got to college, " said junior pharmacy major Jolene Kingsbury. Regardless of where stu- dents spent their money, the new stores did bring about questions more complicated that just what ice cream flavor to choose. Campus tradition, or familiar chain?

Fashion was a personal expression. photo by Naomi Trager RUNWAY BY Whether students strutted their stuff in designer at- tire or shopped at the Sal- NF.DDA MEHDI7.ADEH vation Army, fashion on campus was adorned with personal style. " Right now, it ' s like your own personal style, but mainstream fash- ion is really trying to de- velop that by using colors and femininity, " said first- year student April Francis. Many students copied styles from fashion maga- zines, looking towards run- way trends and shopping at trendy stores like Y.C.I, on South University Av- enue. One major trend sported by many Univer- sity women during the fall was the knee-length knit chic sweater, sometimes worn with a belt. Other women wore high boots, often paired with skirts for par- ties. " I would say long sweat- ers are really big. I ' ve seen a lot of knee-high boots around campus, " said first- year student Alex Gill. Yet some students dis- regarded the trends, pre- ferring, instead, a more laid-back fashion attitude. " I wear whatever is clean, " said junior business admin- istration major Ryan Hutchinson. Other stu- dents opted to save fash- ion headaches - not to mention money- by shop- ping at low-key favorites like the Salvation Army and various thrift stores. Regardless, campus fashion was about feeling good, not necessarily fit- ting in. First-year dance major Lilly Fincher stressed the importance of adding a personal style to the new trends and wearing clothing that just increased self-esteem: " I wear what makes me feel comfortable, sexy, and confident. I just wear what I like and what makes me feel good. I think it ' s im- portantto personalize your outfits, because putting yourself into what you wear makes you feel good about yourself.

Although the date and nature of the holiday did not change, the small children once dressed as pirates and princesses did; they grew up. A desire for free Snickers became a desire for free beer; a pas- sion for going house to house for candy became a passion for house parties. But surprisingly enough, many aspects of Hallow- een on the University ' s campus had not changed since the days of our youth. " I still dress up, " said Lauren Freedman, a junior film major. " I haven ' t de- cided on my costume yet, but it ' ll have to be some- thing sparkly. Maybe a CONTINUED fairy, or a butterfly, or a ON PAGE 38 princess.

" When I was a kid, it was more fun, " she explained. " I tried to get as much candy as I could. I always ended up giving it away though, since I don ' t really like candy. " Freedman ' s enthusiasm for Halloween, however, was not dampened by her age. " Halloween is a great holiday, " she said. " It gives us a reason to dress up and be someone else for a night. " Although Trapnell and Freedman abandoned some of the Halloween customs of days past, both girls (like most students on campus) had plans to cel- ebrate the holiday college style: by attending house parties. " There are a lot of parties this weekend, " Freedman said. " I ' ll be party-hopping all over. " Trapnell seconded that plan. Though the days of BY candy-collecting had long- CORTNEY DUEWEKE since passed, many Uni- versity students still used Halloween to transform themselves into someone else for a night and, of course, as an excuse to cel- ebrate. 38 Halloween Partying at a Hallow- een bash, juniors Sarah Johnson, Abby Johnson, senior Amanda Hulton and junior Jayme Love show off their cos- tumes.

Each student seemed to have an individual taste for what made Ann Arbor unique. " My favorite thing about Ann Arbor is going to the Arb in the fall to study, " said jun- ior biology major Larysa Fedoriw. Ann Arbor streets were lined with edible treats for students to enjoy. " I love all the restaurants in Ann Arbor, " said junior his- tory major Liz Mauck. " You can eat something new every night of the week if that ' s what you want, or you can always have the old standbys like Jimmy John ' s. " Moreover, Ann Arbor ' s lib- eral atmosphere appealed to many students. " The best thing about this city is that pot is only a $25 fine, " an anonymous student said. Other students pointed to the wide variety of people in the city and the ample oppor- tunities for people-watching. " I like to watch people when I ' m sitting at Cava Java.

Rival teams had to wear a lot of their team ' s colors in order to stand out in a stadium of over 110,000 Wolverine fans, photo by Naomi Trager WILD riva Rivalries were a big part of life for most students at the University. The Univer- sity prided itself as being one of the best public schools in the nation, and in order to defend the title, students were willing to go to great lengths to keep other universities from challenging the University ' s reputation. During the week of the Michigan- Michigan State football game, the Theta Xi frater- IF.NNIE PUTVIN nity spent four days camp- ing out on the Diag, in or- der to ensure that the sa- cred ' M ' was not tampered with by the Spartans. They said that the only reason they needed to protect their school pride was that " State sucks. " 42 Rivalries BY Schools within the Big Ten conference saw the University as the team to beat. " Everybody hates you, " said Eric Wolfinger, a sophomore at Penn State University. " Wisconsin, Illinois, Purdue, Penn State, Ohio State - for all those schools, Michigan is their biggest game of the year. We all despise your school, I think because your teams always do well and your students always just as- sume you ' re the best. " Spirit was prevalent all over campus, but mainly at sporting events. In athlet- ics such as hockey, basket- ball, and football, Wolver- ine fans were fiercely loyal to their school. Everyone seemed to break out their maize and blue apparel for game days, and some went even so far as to paint their bodies as well. Lackluster " booing " was the norm for games against schools like Bowling Green, Illinois, and Wisconsin, but against bigger rivals like Michigan State, Ohio State, and Penn State, fans got even cra- zier. First-year engineering student Julie Quasarano said, " It ' s fun to dress up and show lots of spirit. I totally love my school, and getting all pumped up and wild for a game day is defi- nitely part of the college experience for me. " The rivalries did not stop with sports. The annual " blood battle " between the University and Ohio State wasa perfect example of using school rivalries to benefit a greater cause, as students came together to fight the Buckeyes in a blood drive. Regardless of which team won the foot- ball game, the school with the most donated blood won the battle and extra bragging rights for an en- tire year. In general, rivalries took on many forms, from paint- ing one ' s body maize and blue to donating blood on a stretcher. The willingness of students to go the extra mile for the University did not only define the love of their school, but also the fierce competitive spirit at the University.

" We lived on the same floor in South Quad and we ' ve been together pretty much eversincethen, " said Sackellares. " It ' s at the point where we don ' t re- ally go on dates anymore. We ' ve seen every movie there is - we like to go to the free student premiers at Lorch Hall and places like that - but we don ' t really go on ' dates. ' " With busy lifestyles and the increasing popularity of dating friends within one ' s social group, the Ann Arbor dating scene was less the old-fashioned, guy-asks-girl sense of the word and more a modern form of dating. Students squeezed in time to see their significant others whenever they could, spending time together while studying and doing other daily activities like grocery shopping. Couples also hung out together at parties or grabbed some- thing to eat at one of Ann Arbor ' s restaurants, but dating was much less for- mal than ever before. " People don ' t ' date ' anymore. It feels like there are two extremes: hooking up at parties or having a steady relationship. You do either one or the other - and of course, some people do both, " said junior an- thropology major Erin Fisher. Some students experi- enced the hassles of long- distance relationships, try- ing to keep the flame burn- ing despite infrequent vis- its and attractions closer to home. " When my boyfriend comes to visit [from Michi- gan State], " said junior English and secondary edu- cation major Kathleen Belanger, " we are stuck because of parking. We can ' t go anywhere all weekend because it is so hellish to try to find a park- ing spot when we get back. " Regardless of whatever obstacles that existed, at- tractions still sprung up between students, making what seemed to be an end- less headache appear all the more worth it.

Gaping holes, torn-up sidewalks, and yards of snaking chain-link fence channeled confused stu- dents through muddy, leaf- littered ditches. It all added up to one thing: construction on campus. The renovation of Haven Hall inconvenienced most stu- dents at the University, re- gardless of whether or not they had classes in the build- ing itself. Even navigating the Diag became an ordeal. " Every time I pass by Ha- ven Hall on my way to C.C. Little, I have to take a com- pletely new route. The con- struction is really annoying, " said senior computer science major Stefan Dragolov. The general consensus among many students was that the work was a major eyesore as well as a hassle. The confusion of fences and closed-off entrances caused one student to hang a make- shift sign above the new en- trance to the building, a sign that read simply " Alcatraz Hall. " The nickname was quickly adopted by frustrated students. " Why are they even redo- ing Haven Hall? I ' m not even sure what they ' re doing with the building, " said junior en- gineering student Chiming Chu. TheAngell, Haven, Mason and Tisch Hall complex, con- sidered part of the crossroads of Central Campus, was in dire need of improvement. Dirty floors, musty classrooms, and labyrinthine corridors were characteristic of the com- plex, known for its several large lecture halls as well as the Fishbowl, the University ' s largest computer lab. Sched- uled for completion in the summer of 2002, the renova- tion of Haven and Mason Halls was meant to modernize the inside of the building and make the outside look more aesthetically pleasing. Many students were look- ing forward to Haven Hall ' s new look. Junior communica- tions major Crystal Spada said, " Once they ' re done with all the work, the complex will be a lot more accessible to the students. It used to be so con- fusing to get around; it was just like a jumble of hastily- built additions. " Incoming students to the University in the Fall of 2000 were faced with the normal pedestrian hazards - black Jeep Grand Cherokees, com- muter buses, and speeding bicyclists trying to share crowded sidewalks - but new to the University in the fall was a preponderance of con- struction cranes, as renova- tions began on areas sur- rounding not only Angell Hall, butalsothe Union and Burton Tower.

As October turned into November and November turned into December, the biting winds of impending winter caused students to bundle up with mittens and gloves, hats and earmuffs, scarves and turtlenecks, and layer upon layer of winter clothing. While the tempera- ture fluctuations of fall forced students to predict the weather daily to choose a tee- shirt or a sweater, the start of winter brought a daily prac- tice of piling on as many clothes as possible just to be able to comfortably walk across campus. Another hassle of winter came with mud, sleet, and snow being trampled into ev- ery building on campus, bring- ing squeaking shoes and dirty bookbags.

" It ' s a convenient location that I can walk to, but it also plays films that I can ' t see at places like the Showcase on Carpenter Road.

After drawing both praise and criticizm last spring, Professor David Academics 65 Speaking at a public Human Genome Project Conference at Rackham on September 18, Francis Collins presents his findings to his University friends and colleagues, photo courtesy of U-M Photo Services 66 Human Genome Project human genome 05 PROJECT The Human Genome Project, an ongoing bio- logical study to decode all human DNA, was an- nounced as initially complete in a White House press conference on June 26, 2000. President Bill Clinton and British Prime Minister Tony Blair were on hand with Francis Collins, a University professor on leave of absence to serve as the director of the publicly funded Human Genome Project. Also in attendance was J. Craig Venter, chief executive of Celera Genomics, a private biotechnology com- pany in competition with the Human Genome Project to produce this genetic blueprint. Collins and Venter assumed equal credit for the current data, which the international leaders heralded as " a landmark achievement. " Clinton trumpeted the country ' s continued support of the effort, which will continue on until 2003. Only roughly 85% of the estimated 300,000 human genes have been discovered thus far. Additionally, the Human Genome Project intends to sequence approximately 3 billion DNA sub-units: the chemicals guanine, cytosine, adenine, and thymine. Biology and medicine will be fundamentally changed by this discovery, which opens new pos- sibilities for the combat of diseases and genetic disorders at a molecular level. By pinpointing prob- lematic genes or DNA sequences, gene therapists will be able to correct some problems before they start. Graduate student Aaron Liepman from the The University plays its role as a national leader as faculty member maps for the world the human genome biology department commented, " Knowledge gained from research of the genomes of organisms ranging from tiny microbes to plants to humans will revolutionize science and medicine. " LSA sopho- more Josh Kurstin added, " Even my introductory biology course has learned a lot about the implica- tions of this discovery. " The genetic blueprint immediately opens new opportunities for advance- ment in all biological fields. Many legal and ethical issues will arise from the completion of the Human Genome Project as well. For instance, the availability of individuals ' genetic information to employers and insurers becomes the subject of a provocative debate. Professions ranging from surgeon to pilot to athlete require a level of coordination that can be inferred by ge- netic content. If an individual were prone to disor- ders such as Alzheimer ' s disease, that information would certainly deter employers, whereas without genetic testing, such facts would not be readily apparent. In addition to scrutiny at a professional level, it is conceivable that public perceptions of continued PAGE 68 Academics 67 Outside of Rackam, guests eat their brown bag lunches before entering Hill Auditorium.

An elementary school teacher may be prone to give responsibilities to ' normal ' children before those with impending genetic dispositions. On the other hand, a child with a bleak future may receive special consideration or other unnecessary ben- efits while developing into a perfectly functional adult. While the benefits of such technology are immeasurable, it may procure negative implica- tions upon an individual ' s equal rights as a human. Legalities aside, the genetic information of an individual was a volatile issue on a personal level. It could be a great burden upon an individual to live with the fact that they would eventually foster a lethal disease. Should a person be entitled to keep his genetic makeup undiscovered? And should the person choose to be tested, at what age can he make this decision responsibly? If parents of a child know that they are potential carriers of a genetic disorder, do they have the right to have their child tested early, even in a pre-natal state? Parents ' right to know their child ' s health is perhaps justifi- able, but it may prove unreasonable to expect that they will be able to hide their findings from their offspring until adulthood. Still, some genetic disor- ders will develop well before full adult status is achieved, and these may require medical treat- ment to preserve the child ' s life. Clearly, there is a large area for legislation that is open to interpreta- tion as per each specific situation, and any new law regarding genetic information will leave somebody in a position of opposition.

In 1993, he collaborated in the identification of the gene for Huntington disease. Later that year, Collins re- ceived an invitation to direct the National Center for Human Genome Research. In that prestigious position, he succeeded James Watson, the co- discoverer of the structure of DMA. Collins contin- ued to use a method called positional cloning to identify and understand the functions of genes. Endeavors within the project aimed to identify a specific tumor suppressor, MEN1, and a non- insulin dependent diabetic gene, NIDDM. Genes that caused disease were often large in size and therefore very prone to significant mutations, and Collins also intended to develop techniques to monitor such mutations easily and affordably. He held degrees from the University of Virginia, Yale University, and the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. In the University Biology department, Collins officially remained on a leave of absence but retained close contact with the University.

With the numerous- options available at the University, the possibilities for foreign study were virtually endless. The Office of International Programs alone offered over 70 pro- grams in 36 different countries. In addition, credits could be transferred through programs adminis- tered by other American colleges or universities or through direct enrollment in a foreign educational institution. Scholarships and travel grants along with the standard sources of financial aid helped make it possible for thousands of students to go abroad. The Study Abroad Fair, held October 5 in the Michigan Union Ballroom, was an opportunity for students to collect information on the programs the University offered. With opportunities in so many countries and options to study during one semester, the entire year or the spring or summer term, the prospects could be overwhelming. Studying overseas at Oxford University, University students Anand Patel, Barry Suaprio, Jonah Victor and Paul Wong listen to an outdoor lecture. The men took advantage of the summer to expand their travels, photo courtesy of Office of International Programs University students are given a plethora of study abroad opportunities to expand their horizons and enhance their knowledge Fall information sessions offered students more detail on specific programs to help decision making easier. LSA junior Deborah Sitrin faced a difficult decision in choosing her program to Scotland. She explained, " The Office of International Programs has so much information, it ' s hard to know where to start. The advisors there were helpful in directing me towards the best one for me. " The Office of International Programs on the first floor of the Michigan Union was a resource for students who planned to go abroad. Brochures, applications and student evaluations of individual programs were available and advisors answered questions about anything from paperwork to scholarships. According to LSA junior Sara Goldberg, who spent theyear in Germany, the experience was well worth the effort. " The attitudes of people and the makings of a culture are much more complicated and fine-tuned than a cursory glance can capture. The nuances continue to creep up on me surpris- ingly as the year goes on. What has proven truly worthwhile to me has been getting a better feel for a culture, as well as picking up the nuances of a language that you will never get by studying out- side of the country.

Juggling lectures and discus- sion or lab sections was the main concern of students. Nearly every course offered at the Univer- sity existed in two parts; a lecture which was commonly taught by a professor, and either a lab or discussion, depending on the class material, that was lead by a Graduate Student Instructor. With as many as ten GSIs available to assist a single lecturer, the consistency of educational standards and grading scales was a concern of students. Although this problem rarely existed in scientific or quantitative courses, it was more of a concern within Humanities courses. Some liberal arts stu- dents felt that the differences in the GSIs grading their work may reflect in d ifferent grading stan- dards for students enrolled in separate sections of the same lecture. " The GSI you have may mean the difference between an ' A ' and a ' C ' , " said Jon Den Houter, junior English major. Students also found problems with the occasional language barriers between them and their GSIs. It was not uncom- mon to be scheduled with a graduate student that did not speak English as his or her first language. The frustrations of trying to understand this bro- ken language were reflected in some students ' grades and attendance. " I have had GSIs that were so bad with the English language that I can not imagine how they were admitted into our graduate program, let alone given an undergraduate section to lead, " Brad Pepper, sophomore political science major, said. However, the benefits of having lab and discussion groups were evident to all involved. These sections made courses more personal than a larger lecture and the role of the GSI was crucial to this collaboration. " Having a GSI available to answer my questions is great. Most of mine are laid back, so I feel more comfortable in section than I do in the big lecture, " Sarah Trombley, sophomore business school hopeful said. by Meghan Christiansen Academics 73 With utmost patience, two first-year students wait to see their academic advisors. Help was available by appointment or walk-in. photo by Ari Melber INFLUENCE Academic Advisors assist students in making decisions that will last a lifetime There were many services on campus that were designed to point students in the right academic direction. The most used and probably the most well-known was the Student Academic Advising Center. Focused on getting students into the cor- rect classes fortheir desired major, advisors worked closely with the students to prepare an individual- ized curriculum. Many first-year students came into the Univer- sity with little or no idea of what major they wanted to pursue. There were many areas of study that interested them, but finding the right area of focus could be very hard, which was where advisors came in. Students first met with their advisor at summer orientation prior to freshman year. It was at this first meeting that students put together the schedule for their first semester at the University and registered for classes for their first time, often with the assistance of their advisor. Said first-year chemistry major Matthew McKee, " I had a really good experience with the advising center. They really helped me to find the classes that would help me the most and how those classes would fit together. " Encouragement seemed to be the word around the office at the Academic Advising Center. LSA Advising Center Director Alice Reinarz stated that, " Active exploration goes on between the advisors and the students constantly. There are many differ- ent venues through which the students who need guidance can get it and those students who know where they are headed can be encouraged.

The lawsuits fought to abolish weighted admissions, harming the chances of some students to be granted admission, photo by Ari Melber Students of all backgrounds joined efforts to fight for a common goal. Many students realized that the Affirmative Action Act not only played a role in helping racial groups, but under-represented areas, all women and lower economic brackets as well, photo by Ari Melber 76 Affirmative Action is this 7 equal JL X vT T OPPORTUNITY The University faces one of its biggest struggles, battling lawsuits that question the validity of its acceptance policies and the place of affirmative action in an ever-changing, modern institution Should underrepresented groups get special treatment because they have suffered discrimina- tion in the past? Should universities and colleges save spaces in their entering classes for people of ethnic backgrounds? These were questions that affirmative action was trying to answer. A major case filed on Oct. 1 3, 1 997, known as Gratz v. Bellinger, challenged the University of Michigan ' s use of race in admission standards to the College of Literature, Science the Arts. Jennifer Gratz, an unsuccessful applicant for the 1995 fall term, and Patrick Hamacher, an unsuc- cessful applicant for the 1997 fall term, brought these casesto court. Gratzand Hamacher had both been " wait listed " and later found out that they had been denied admittance to LSA. Both of these cases had been certified as class action suits and the plaintiffs sued on the basis that they had endured discrimination because they were Cauca- sian and did not have the ethnic background that the admissions department needed to create a diverse entering class. Jennifer Gratz sued James Duderstadt, the President of the University of Michi- gan during the time her application was up for review. Patrick Hamacher sued Lee Bollinger, who in 1997 had become the President of the Univer- sity. Admissions at the University went by a system called the " point system. " Within this process points were given to race as well as under-repre- sented areas. Under the point system racial ethnic minorities received twenty points. The LSA admis- sions Form asked each applicant to disclose his or her race. The defendants used the race information provided by the plaintiffs and other applicants to determine who would be admitted to the LSA College. They used different admissions standards based on each student ' s self-identified race. The issue was whether Bollinger and Duderstadt vio- lated the plaintiff ' s Constitutional rights to receive the same consideration for admissions as appli- cants of other races. Grutter v. Bollinger was another case filed on December 3, 1997, which challenged the University ' s use of race in its admissions process at the Law School and was brought forward by Bar- bara Grutter, an unsuccessful applicant for the entering class of Fall 1997. Barbara Grutter sued under the 14th Amendment of the United States Constitution stating the deans of the Law School and the president of the University discriminated against certain applicants on the basis of race. The Law School also used a similar system to the other colleges at the University and also gave points to those applicants who had minority ethnic back- grounds. The plaintiffs who challenged the University ' s affirmative action policy felt that the University ' s admissions practices unlawfully dis- criminated against them because the University took race and ethnicity into account as a " plus " factor. In general they were seeking injunctive relief and monetary damages. Due to these lawsuits many issues had been brought up debating whether affirmative action was fair. Affirmative action was created in 1 950 in an attempt to give underprivileged minorities a chance to go to college and get jobs that they would not normally have received. This statute was created to acknowledge that their had been past discrimination and to try to keep it from continuing to happen. Groups like By Any Means Possible, known as BAMN, and Defend Affirmative Action Party, DAAP, worked to uphold affirmative action. For those who had benefited from it, they were thankful that they were at the University of Michi- gan and had a chance to receive a paramount education. Junior John Wilkerson stated, " There was not a day that I woke up that I did not feel proud that I was here. I earned it and I believe that it did not just have to do with affirmative action. I was representing the African American population and affirmative action had benefited me. I think it should remain at the University, but one thing people did have to realize was that the people who benefited from affirmative action were just as smart as everyone else who did not. " However, people like State Senator David Jaye, whowasan opponent of affirmative action, wanted to abolish affirmative action from Michigan. Natalie Girard, a first-year student, said continued PAGE 78 Academics 77 is this 7 equal 1 OPPORTUNITY? " Although I was for affirmative action in Michigan, I thought that the " point system " that the Univer- sity used was unfair. It seemed that they were recognizing minorities and then rewarding them. Why not recognize Caucasians and reward them toothen?The " pointsystem " was a very confusing process that I think needed to be defined and then maybe people would not be opponents of affirma- tive action. " BAMN worked hard to set up protests against people like Jaye and Ward Connerly, a former University of California Regent and raise awareness about the cases against the University. They wanted to make sure that people realized how important affirmative action was for those who were minorities in society. " Our goal is to inform people of the benefits of affirmative action and try to eliminate the false notions about its purpose, " BAMN representative, Cyril Cordor, sophomore engineering major, said. The Defend Affirmative Action Party was cre- ated and existed to reinforce the student ' s civil rights and create a strong student movement. Their main goals were to uphold affirmative action at the University and convince the administration that it had been beneficial to many students on campus. The DAAP wanted to reverse the drop in minority enrollment at the University, defend affir- mative action and integration, and represent and fight for student ' s rights and interests. Both DAAP and BAMN worked together to save affirmative action and uphold integration in schools and in the workplace by holding protests and conferences. These lawsuits had caused some tension be- tween people on campus because of their cultural background and ethnicity. Some people felt like the only reason they were at the University was because of their race, others felt like they deserved to be here and were proud of their accomplish- ments. Whether these cases involved intentional discrimination or were just arbitrary, the main question was whether affirmative action was ben- eficial or needed to be abolished from Michigan. The University ' s position was that the Constitution and civil rights statutes, as interpreted by the Supreme Court in the 1978 Bakke decision, per- mitted them to take race and ethnicity into account in its admissions program in order to achieve a diverse student body. They felt that a racially di- verse student body would produce significant edu- cational benefits. The University also claimed that they needed to remedy past and present discrimi- nation against minorities. The argument about affirmative action continued to be a very popular one as the lawsuits were under way and admissions for the following year ' s entering class and transfer students were being decided. The solution to the affirmative action problem remained elusive. by Sara Wilson Spreading the word, a University student cheers with the crowd at a rally on October 17.

For the major- ity of students, the Shapiro Undergraduate Library and the Harlan Hatcher Graduate Library were the two primary branches utilized for research and studying. The " UGLi " was a common area for group study sessions, as the social atmosphere and availability of many conference rooms made it ideal. Individual studying was also a common practice. Sophomore LSA student Duke Kim said, " My roommates often distract me with their video games and loud music, so there was no better place better than the UGLi to get some quality learning done. " Indeed, late hours and a central location made the UGLi an essential oasis for studying, but the HOMES University students depend on campus libraries to hone their growing intellects Hatcher Graduate Library was the destination of the most serious researchers. Visitors were asked to remain quiet to optimize everyone ' s study time. The graduate library, or simply, " the Grad, " was comprised of several towers of literature, called the " stacks. " Students could lose themselves for hours amongst the plethora of information. " I used to go to the stacks with my girlfriend a lot. We enjoyed both the comprehensive subject sections as well as the unmatched privacy, " sophomore Hayden Goldblatt commented. There were also many smaller, specialized libraries spread throughout campus. The Public Health Library, located on the Hill, attracted many students from nearby dorms. Other locations in- cluded the Taubman Medical Library, the Media Union, the Dentistry Library, the Music Library, the Law Library and many others.

This distinction was bestowed upon Mr. Havel for his work against communism and his devotion to human rights activism. Throughout his life, Havel ' s actions spoke to the world. The plays that he wrote reflected his life ' s trials but were banned when they first came out and eventually earned him a five-year jail sentence for political dissention. Since that time Havel ' s plays have become critically acclaimed and have received literary awards. Along with the presentation of the degree to Havel, President Bollinger also announced to those assembled that a new fellowship would be instated in Vaclav Havel ' s name. The Havel Fellows program was set up to offer assistance to anyone interested in Czech studies, including grad students and students coming from the Czech Republic to study at the University. After the presentation ceremony Havel led a discussion entitled " Globalization ' s Intellectual Challenge " along with Bollinger, theater and drama Profe ssor Glenda Dickerson and Business School Professor Jan Svejnar.

As the sixth most popular major in LSA and the most rapidly expanding program, many students were stunned and disap- pointed. However, LSA Dean Shirley Neuman de- fended the elimination of the program and ex- plained the reasoning behind the changes. " The ICP was being used by several hundred students as a ' concentration, ' " she said. " In fact, no concentration existed. What did exist was a list of courses that students were choosing from. A concentration, however, is more than a collection of courses; to have a concentration, those courses must be structured into a coherent curriculum that covers the area of study. " She explained that concentrations were created by faculty with extensive experience in the subject, then reviewed and approved by several different committees before becoming an official concen- tration. " There was no organizational studies concen- tration, " she continued. " The use of the ICP as a default for a concentration was stopped because the ICP was not intended to be used as a ' shadow concentration ' by hundreds of students. The list of courses that had been developed did not consti- tute a curriculum as previously mentioned, though the individual courses were strong. There was little faculty oversight for the program, no faculty advis- ing, and no mechanism for reviewing and revising the curriculum. ..and it had not gone through the usual approval mechanisms already mentioned. " The University looks to better its curriculum by eliminating a concentration that lacked just that; concentration Neuman added that LSA hoped to have an introductory organizational studies program in place by fall 2001 and an official concentration by 2002. " We ' re trying to produce a program that meets the standards of other University degrees: that is, rig- orous, focused, current and coherent, " she ex- plained. " My decision to major in organizational studies was made because of its ability to fit my personal interests and goals, " said Tiffany Thomas, a junior in the program. " The knowledge and skills I ' m learning will prepare me with the utmost confi- dence for ever-increasing business-oriented fields. It saddens me to know that LSA wants to eliminate the organizational studies major. " Jerry Mangona, a senior in the organizational studies program, had mixed emotions about the changes. " The popularity of organizational studies has increased overwhelmingly over the last few years, but it does have problems that need to be eliminated, " he said. " It ' s unfortunate that our administration has decided to pull the plug on its opportunity, but if this is what it will take to overhaul the program, everyone will be better off when it returns.

Unfortunately for these undergraduate hopefuls, the admissions process proved to be very exclusive, accepting only about forty percent of its applicants. Thus, the promising horizon of the business pro- gram could be the driving force behind many students ' study habits and work ethics. Ranked first among undergraduate business programs by the U.S. News and World Report in 1999, the ' B school ' catapulted its students into a bright future with countless career options. Starting the third year of collegiate studies, students progressed through advanced levels of such subjects as economics, accounting, and marketing. Some scholars then advanced into graduate school, possessing a sound foundation of general business knowledge. Start- AMBITION ing job salaries were just as appealing as the many opportunities for graduates, but the prestige was what lured applicants.

Applications weresubmitted in February of your sophomore year. The selection committee focused particularly on grade point average, leadership, and performance in prerequisite courses.

These " fun " classes were all unique and special, includ- ing swing dancing, yoga, opera singing, anime, and sign language. Alicia Gimenez, a junior political science major, raved about her favorite class, Project Community, " It uses an approach to learning by requiring students to participate in different forms of com- munity service. The two semesters I spent in the class as a student and now as a facilitator of my own section are probably the most rewarding experiences at U of M. " Jeff Braun, a first-year LSA student, agreed with Gimenez, that " fun " classes were the best. " In my interpretative dance class, I get to wear a leotard and frolic around. It beats sitting in a lecture hall any day. " Core academic courses were also fun for some students. " The best class I ever had was electrical engineering and computer science. We always used to throw cereal at our professor, but it never made it and would always hit the people in front of us. One time we found an extra honeycomb on the floor, and we set it free outside. Now we are always looking for the rabid honeycomb running around North Campus, " stated Jen Ehland, a senior multi- media major. First-year pre-med student Nicole LaRocca argued, " Any small class can be fun. You get to make close, personal relationships with the students and the teacher, and it can never be boring.

Accord- ing to the LSA Course Guide, " Competence in languages has traditionally been a sign of a well- educated person. ..The study of another language is a way to gain a new reflective understanding of language and communication systems. " While some students agreed that foreign languages were an important part of a quality education, others complained that their future careers will never be impacted by languages they were " forced " to take while attending the University. " I think learning a foreign language is part of a well-rounded education, and without it the LSA curriculum would not be as balanced, " said Nicole Practicing pronunciation, a Spanish 101 instructor uses an overhead to aid her students.

She completed the requirement in French, then decided she missed studying the language and made it her minor. " We always hear that we ' re not going to get a job in the exact field we study. I think it ' s important to have these skills because you never know what you ' re going to need for a future job. " Sophomore cell and molecular biology major Justin Christy wholeheartedly disagreed. " Fourse- mesters of foreign language is completely unnec- essary, " he said. " German is not my utmost con- cern when I ' m studying to become a doctor. " Jennifer Fisher, a sophomore art history and film major who studied Italian, had a less extreme take on the subject. " I think the language requirement should be cut in half, " she said. " A lot of students take the four semesters, finish up and never take a language again. I think it gets in the way of a lot of people ' s schedules when they ' re trying to get their distribution out of the way.

L crisp LADY r With the installation of the new Wolverine Access during the summer came happier students around registration time When registering for classes this fall, students were introduced to a whole different wave while surfing the new Wolverine Access. Deviating from the former touch-tone telephone system, the reg- istration administration developed an alternate way to schedule classes; a decision made based on student requests. " We implemented the web page registration system because consistently over the last five years students have expressed their desire to have a web- based registration system, " said registrar Tom McElvain. " Students in focus groups expressed preferences to be able to do registration over the web and to be able to combine the class search function with the registration function-tof ind open classes in the same system. " One benefit that McElvain saw in the system was that " It allows students to access their per- sonal information. Its primary purpose is to em- power students to have the ability to maintain their own data. " Fifth-year pre-med senior Reena Newton, who majored in anthropology-zoology, approved of the new registration system. " You don ' t feel rushed as opposed to the old system. With the telephone system, if you don ' t dial in the correct course number it cuts you off. Or if you don ' t have all of the information in front of you, like if you forgot to write down the second section number that you wanted and you ' re trying to flip through the course book to find it and you ' re kind of running out of time, you would get cut off. Then you would have to call back and sometimes the lines were busy. " Senior Malikh Prot, studying organizational stud- ies and cultural anthropology agrees that the new system is much easier and beneficial. " What ' s great about it is that you can access it anywhere. Most people own computers, so you could drop and add classes when you are home. It ' s nice to have that option.

Foreign to the majority of University students, North Cam- pus seemed to many an entirely separate institu- tion. Distinguished from LSA, it housed the more hands-on academic units such as Art Design, Music, Engineering and Architecture. While some LSA students never even saw North Campus, a whole other group of students felt at home among the more serene setting that was offered away from the bustle of downtown Ann Arbor. Three University residences were available for students who preferred the area. First-year sociol- ogy major Tamara Braun requested living in the area for many reasons. " I already had established friendships with a lot of people living here and I wanted to be with them; I just felt that it was more of a place that seemed like home than if I were to goto central and not knowanybody.

" Since I ' m in the music school, I have a lot of classes up here and I have a lot of classes that start at 7:30 a.m., so if I didn ' t live up here, it would be harder to get to class. I do have classes on central campus, but in general, it ' s a lot more convenient for me to live up here. I have also met a lot of great people, so I love it. " Engineering sophomore Jared Goulart spent two years living on North Campus. " The first year I requested living up here because of my classes, but this year I decided to live up here because a lot of my friends stayed and I wanted to live with my roommate again, " he said. " The food here is also a lot better and it ' s quieter. You can get away from distractions and get work done, but the only nega- tive aspect is the bus. Even though I have most of my classes up here, it ' s hard to get myself out of bed for one class on Central Campus.

Stucci ' s is a low stress job, it has reason- able hours, and it ' s a great place to meet people. I have met some very good friends by working there, " stated senior chemistry major Adam Beck. While some students chose to work in popular on-campus establishments, others opted for a more professional route by assisting with research, preparing museum exhibits, photographing campusevents, or interning with local businesses. Having embraced such opportunities early in their academic careers, students were able to make personal and professional connections and gain invaluable insight that helped mend personal bridges: joining specialized interest with possible career paths. Whether working to support a wild nightlife in Ann Arbor, to meet new people, to spruce up a wardrobe or to get a free lunch, students took advantage of the opportu- nities for student employment. They gained responsibility and experience, and with each library shelf restocked and each resounding punch of the timecard, students learned that valuable life lessons are taught both in and out of the classroom.

Ann Arbor by Dan Nieman Sculptures of varied size and weight filled the University ' s campus. They not only made the University a more beau- tiful place to live and work, but also gave Ann Arbor a certain amount of culture and diversity that was rare in most cities the same size. From the wave field on North Campus designed by architect and artist Maya Lin to the many art galleries on Main Street, Ann Arbor was full of art that was impossible to ignore. " I love the amount of art on campus. The University Museum has some amazing exhibits that bring lots of great art that is accessible to everyone on this campus, " junior English major Lauren Rubinfeld said. Located right on Central Campus across from the Union, the Museum of Art offered Ann Arbor residents and students a diverse perma- nent collection as well a wide array traveling exhibits that came to Ann Arbor. Recently, traveling exhibits by photog- rapher Sally Mann, painter Claude Monet and photogra- pher Ansel Adams have made their way to the corner of South University and State Street. The School of Art and Design also was a place where art aficionados could catch a glimpse of future artists. Senior graphic design and photography major Rachel Einsidler quipped, " I love wandering through the Art and Architecture Building and looking at all the student work that is on display. It gives me and my peers a sense that the art school isn ' t a school, but rather a community of artists living and working together. " That community of artists could be seen when one visited Ann Arbor in the summer as the Ann Arbor Art Fair literally took over most of campus. Streets were filled with local artists who showcased and sold their work to students and visitors from all over the state while galleries brought their work outdoors from more well known artists for the public to view. The art fair, local galleries and the art that filled both the campus and its buildings was hard to go unnoticed. A father pushes a stroller down Liberty Street during the Ann Arbor Art Fair.

Preachers and Rabbis were often seen at the Diag professing their beliefs to students, photo by Ari Melber 104 Religion Ann Arbor R; eligion was a major part of the University ' s campus. There were many people who differed in their religious affiliation. This added a fla- vor to the campus that could not be overlooked. The three most common religions on campus, though there were many, were Christianity, Juda- ism and Islamlic. The real question at hand was how these re ligious groups integrated themselves into Ann Arbor ' s society. The First Presbyterian Church of Ann Arbor had a lot of student members that actively participated in the activities that they offered. Graham Baird, the president of the group known as " Ground Zero, " felt that First Presbyterian not only offered much to the students of the University, but also to Ann Arbor as a whole. " We believe that if religion is detached from society then it is meaningless and ungrounded. This is why we spend a lot of time trying to connect with the issues that society deals with on a daily basis. " This was only one of the groups that the First Presbyterian had to offer but one that was highly popular among the University ' s Christian population. Hillel was where the Jewish population of the University and Ann Arbor residents congregated. This establishment offered many options to the Jewish community. One club that seemed to be popular among the students was Volunteers in Action (VIA). This group was a community service group that took time to help those in need and link students with the local community. Kevin Berman said that " Hillel provides a place for people to go and meet other Jewish people and interact with the community through the activities that we offer. We welcome everyone to come and join us for activities and participate in our services over the holidays. " Hillel provided a place for people from out of state to go and celebrate the Jewish holidays and meet other people from other states that have similar religious backgrounds. The University ' s campus was very diverse culturally. On campus there were a growing number of Muslim people who had become a powerful part of Ann Arbor ' s soci- ety. One way that the Muslim society interacted with the community and brought people with common back- grounds together was through the Muslim Student ' s Association (MSA). The Muslim Student Association cur- rently had 100 members. It ' s Vice President, Zain Bengali, felt that this club supported the student body and actively participated in the commu- nity. " MSA is deeply concerned in benefiting society. Our primary mode of doing so is through our community affairs committee which hosts such activities as the Arb clean up, volun- teering at local schools and clothing drives. Outside of purely community service activities, we hold Islam Aware- ness Week, which is dedicated to in- forming society at large about Islam through a variety of activities. " These three religious groups spent a lot of time not only leading and participating in the University ' s events, but also interacting with each other. All of the groups welcomed the com- munity and enjoyed meeting new people. The University encouraged its students to not only to join clubs, but to meet people of all different races and religious backgrounds. There were many ways to get involved at the University, all you had to do is look for group that was right for you. Voices Voices Voices Voices Voices Voices Voices 105 CULTURAL Ann Arbor by Jennie Putvin One would have had to walk through the campus every day blindfolded not to notice that the University was rich with culture and diversity. With almost 1 00 University- recognized minority and ethnic groups, a person ' s culture was truly an integral part of many lives here at the Univer- sity. " [My culture] lets me combine the advantages of my old culture and my new culture in getting a realistic outlook of what is really going on. Having been part of a different culture lets you get a different outlook on life, and a better people together...! feel right at home, " said Najia Sheihk, a Pakistani ISA sophomore. Many other students strongly agreed that diversity was the essence of the University. " I absolutely adored going to an Indian dance show one night, then a Japanese subtitled movie the next, salsa dancing another night. ..diversity is a valuable attribute for me, " expressed Marina Lemberg, a graduate with a biop- sychology degree. Kelly Peters, a first-year LSA student, summed it up; " I think U of M ' s diversity is one of its understanding [of it], " stated Alexander Bobin, a Russian sophomore majoring in computer science. Even though a person ' s own ethnicity was so important, the learning did not stop there. Culture was " one of the reasons that U of M is so great. ' s part of the experience that you would never get at a small school. Just to learn [about other cultures] brings greatest attributes. It seems as if there is truly a place for everyone. And while segregation exists between different groups, separated by ethnicity, religion, race, etc., the ties between these groups are what help us preserve our heritage and grow simultaneously. Then everyone is able to learn and really appreciate their differences. " Four students of different cultural backgrounds study together at the Undergraduate Library. The Univer- sity encouraged a multi-cultural learning experience.

The Ann Arbor Folk Festival. If the number of festivals was any indication, Ann Arbor certainly made room for music. From the Ark on Main Street to the acoustically perfect Hill Auditorium to the Halfway Inn in the basement of East Quad, each Ann Arbor music venue had a different taste and, with it, a different place in the city ' s music scene. Ann Arbor, with its large mix of college students, attracted bands on every scale, from local start-ups to national acts. Both Bob Dylan and Ben Harper performed at Hill Auditorium during the same week in November; other stars such as Ani DiFranco, the Smashing Pumpkins and Pearl Jam performed at the theater in recent years. Other venues that attracted concert-goers and musicians alike for their respective atmospheres included the Blind Pig on South First Street for smaller rock, blues, reggae, and dance acts; the Bird of Paradise on South Main Street for nightly jazz; and the 35-year-old Ann Arbor folk and blues tradition of The Ark. " I ' m making it my mission to see Ani DiFranco every year, " said junior English and secondary education major Kathleen Belanger. " I ' m forcing my boyfriend to drive me SOUNDS by Caelan Jordan to this year ' s concert in East Lansing. He ' s not too happy cause he doesn ' t like her and he doesn ' t want to have to drive to see her. I love her so much that I ' ll travel for her, but her show at Hill a couple years ago was definitely the best and it would be better if she were always here in Ann Arbor. " Crammed into every crevice of the city was another music outlet, from the venues with national acts like Hill Auditorium to the small scope of coffeehouses and restau- rants with local performers. Borders Books Music, Arbor Brewing Company and Espresso Royale were just some of the places that offered live music at least some nights of the week. In the fall, the Ann Arbor Blues and Jazz Festival was named a local legacy by the Library of Congress, to be registered in its collections as such. Founded in the late 1960s with artists such as Bonnie Raitt, Muddy Waters, Miles Davis, and Ray Charles, the September festival died in 1 974, only to be revived in 1 992. Its annual appeal and newfound status as an official " local legacy " marked its place on the city ' s music scene.

Students passed by homeless everyday, often without noticing, photo by Susan Chalmers tit by Sara Wilson Like so many cities, homeless people could be found around Ann Arbor, loitering in front of the National City Bank and on the corners of streets. They sat and talked to the people passing by and asked for money. A majority of the people that they interacted with were students that did not have change to spare. It was not that the students did not respect the homeless people; it is just that when it comes down to it, college students could use all the money they could get. Many students had negative reactions to the homeless people. Those who were from the suburbs were often not used to the presence of homeless people. First-year stu- dent Rachel Estrada said, " I am from a suburb outside of L.A. and there are no homeless people there. I am not used to them and they kind of scare me. Not that I think that they would harm me, but I have no money to spare. I think that they need to go somewhere where there is a more diverse age group. " Other people felt that the homeless people gave Ann Arbor a city feeling that it would lack without their presence. As one student said, " I am from New York City and there are homeless people everywhere, so the homeless people here do not bother me. I barely recognize that they are even on the street corners. " The homeless people received both positive and nega- tive reactions from the inhabitants of Ann Arbor. It was mostly the suburban-bred students that were uncomfort- able with the loitering of homeless people during the day. Some students felt more comfortable being around them during the day than at night. The consensus on campus was that the homeless people caused no problem. How- ever, some people felt that they should go somewhere wh ere they would actually get the money and support that they needed, instead of trying to beg off of students that had very little money themselves. 110 Homeless Ann Arbor m fg A University Student passes a homeless man on the Diag.

On the day designated by congress to honor the work of King, the late civil rights leader Dr. Henry Lewis Gates Jr. delivered the keynote address based on this year ' s symposium theme, " Shattering Barriers and Transcending Borders, " to a packed Hill Auditorium. Dr Gates, who was the current head of the W.E.B. DuBois Institute for Afro-American Research and a professor at Harvard University, was interrupted by a group of about 1 5 students who claimed that the University was contradicting itself. Among several other events, students, faculty and Ann Arbor residents participated in a rally that started on the corner of S. Forest and E. University. The march was to " a declaration of a counter offensive against the attacks on integration in K-1 2 education and affirmative action in higher education. " Junior English and communications major Caelan Jordan commented, " It is amazing that this one man is still inspiring people to take action about equality and race relations. " ass More than 1 500 people attended " Encompass: Piecing Us Together, " which brought diversity and culture to Michigan Theater. Focusing on representing the variance and parallelism of the University community, the dance show brought together the cultures of Asia, Europe, Africa and the United States. Junior music major Jen Driskill asserted that, " It ' s really neat how so many different groups on campus can come together. " One of the trademarks of the show was its ability to bring innovation and tradition together. In an enthusiastic and vibrant manner, Encompass lived up to its name. 02.03.00 Bee Winter brought big beats to Hill Auditorium. Famed loser, slacker, and genius Beck took over the stage with the opening tune " Mixed Bizness. " Though small in stature, the musician incorporated a number of larger than life laser and lighting effects into the performance, and belted out the lyrics to match. Although backed up by a three horn section and two supporting singers, Beck ' s energy was enough to overwhelm them all. " Beck had such a relentless stage appearance. Not every concert you go to can really make you feel the music like the musician does, " remarked junior LSA student Matt Klapper. A mecca for grand performances at the University, Hill Auditorium welcomed the classical stylings of cellist Yo-Yo Ma during January. For two hours Ma and piano accompanist Kathryn Scott entranced audience members with performances of Stravinsky, Schickele, and Rachmaninoff. The world renowned musician even showed a sense of humor by poking fun at Schickele ' s title choices by spelling it out, which sparked the auditorium into an uproar of laughter. Most were simply touched by the man ' s ability to speak his soul through music. 02.05.00 Dance Marathon For 30 straight hours, 300 University students danced to help raise money for children in need. This year, Dance Marathon raised over $120,000 for charities such as the Pediatric Rehabilitation Program at Mott Children ' s Hospital and William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak. The event, which began February 5th and ended the next day, featured many of the recipients of the funds as visitors. " You have direct contact with the people you are helping and can see the impact that you ' re having on their lives.

Competitive dancing was not the only variety; the Pow Wow also featured performances of veteran flag dances and traditional dances by different tribes. Organized in part by the Native American Student Association, this year ' s Pow Wow featured event was an Iroquois Smoke Dance on Saturday afternoon. The event was the second largest of its kind in North America. One tense moment was shared as senior honor society Michigamua appeared to announce to the Native American community that they had changed their name to New Traditions for a New Millennium. NTNM had been at odds with the Native American community for their alleged insensitivity toward them and their history.

" The festival is a wonderful summer resource for the community, " said Colleen Murdock, marketing director for the non-profit organization Ann Arbor Summer Festival, Inc., which put on the event. " We not only provide a gathering place for all segments of the population, but also present local artists and world- class performing artists. " The " Top of the Park " half of the festival featured free concerts and movie viewings on the Power Center parking structure. Local bands and acts from throughout the state represented musical genres from rock, pop and country to swing, bluegrass and rockabilly. " Stuart Little, " " Galaxy Quest, " " It Came from Outer Space " and " Happy Gilmore " were just a few of the movies projected on the walls of the structure during the festival. Ticketed shows ran simultaneously in the Power Center itself, highlighting bands, dancers, comedians, bands and more. According to Murdock, the most popular show was by Rockapella, the group made famous by singing the theme song to " Wherein the World is Carmen Sandiego? " Other acts included Michael Feinstein, Kate Clinton and The Reduced Shakespeare Company. To feed the masses during the entertainment, food booths were set up around the parking structure.

The 30th annual event brought artists from over 37 states. It was set up in two sections of the city, one on-campus and one off. Taking place near the University on State Street, the fair was easily accessible to University faculty and summer students. " I spent my lunch hour looking over potential purchases, " commented senior English major Lauren Klein. Down in the Main Street shopping district the other branch of the fair occurred. It was host to fewer University students, but featured a wide array of art from clay sculptures and paintings to handmade clothing and paper. Founded in 1970 by the Michigan Guild of Artists and Artisans, the fair ran for four days. The Guild was comprised of over " 1200 members who contribute their time and energies to the promotion of the visual arts in the U.S., " the website boasted.

President Ford graduated from the University in 1935 with degrees in economics and political science and served as the 38th president of the United States. Kissinger received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1973 and served in a number of political offices. Ford School Dean Rebecca M. Blank said of the name change, " It helps us honor Gerald Ford and affirm our commitment to training students who are as committed to public service as he has been. It also raises the visibility of our School by associating it with one of the University ' s most prominent alumni and one of the state ' s most effective politicians. " The new name corresponded with fundraising efforts to expand and improve the school. At the time of the ceremony the school had raised $6.5 million towards the long-term goal of $30 million, by Bethany Kolenic Nader One of the contenders in the 2000 Presidential Election, Ralph Nader of the Green Party visited Ann Arbor. Meeting at the Michigan Theater, Nader professed the need for grass roots third party political support. Claiming that the two major parties are out of touch with the people, Nader found a lot of support among college students. Nader asked for the vote of Ann Arbor residents as a statement of discontent against Republicans and Democrats. Nader and Michael Moore, host of the Bravo show The Awful Truth, spoke about the basic ideals of the Green Party regarding the environment, personal responsibility, elimination of free trade and universal health insurance. One of Nader and Moore ' s biggest issues was with the so-called " corporate fat cats who own most of the election.

Known for their marijuana jokes and physical comedy, Chappelle and Breuer received a warm welcome from the audience at a sold out Hill Auditorium. Breuer began the show by saying, " Man, when I was your age, I discovered pot, " which was followed by a loud cheer from the audience. Then in one of his best slacker voices, he followed up with, " I was so retarded, " to which the crowd cheered even louder. Breuer supplemented his humor with jokes about controversial Atlanta Braves pitcher John Rocker and his famous goat boy. Then almost missing the performance, Chappelle appeared after a brief intermission. Chappelle cracked up the audience with his discussions of " grape drink " and what he called " the lemon test. " by Liz Mauck Ttzhak Perl man In late September famed violinist Itzhak Perlman joined pianist Rohan De Silva for an afternoon concert at Hill Auditorium celebrating the work of Jascha Heifetz. Perlman ' s jovial personality was on display immediately; 1 seconds into the concert, a 5-foot flower display fell to Perlman ' s left with a loud crash. He broke the tension of the moment by gesturing wildly to show his shock. And as they were about to begin again, he announced, " We are determined to start the show. " For the rest of the afternoon, their determination was clear. They moved effortlessly through Vitali ' s " Chacone " and navigated the complicated changes of Strauss ' " Sonata in E-flat (Op. 18) " perfectly. The second half of the show was devoted to selections of Heifetz ' s work, which Perlman and Silva picked and announced on the spot. This spontaneity seemed to excite the audience and gave Perlman several opportunities to joke and charm. Yosef Abboud, a sophomore jazz student, explained " A lot of students were on the upper level and we used the rush tickets which are half off. " The students that did attend were very impressed. Brian Lipson, an RC senior, said, " I ' d never heard Strauss ' sonata before and it was beautiful. " byAri Melber Gore and MTV Rock the Vote As approximately 1 50 University students entered the Media Union on September 26 to the sounds of Christina Aguilera ' s " What a Girl Wants, " they had no way of knowing that the elaborate, fluorescent-colored, mock-MTV studio was -just days before -nothing more than a silent, black-walled room. A week prior to the event, MTV ' s Choose or Lose Campaign contacted the University ' s Voice Your Vote commission about creating a town hall forum in which University students could ask Vice President Al Gore about issues that mattered to them. After two days of interviewing some 300 students, MTV employees selected 1 50 to make up the audience. Voice Your Vote Chairwoman Shari Katz, junior psychology and political science major, was one of the few who was selected to ask Vice President Gore a question. " It was truly an incredible experience. ..having the opportunity to ask the Vice President a question on national television. Being able to sit in an audience with 1 50 other concerned students made the event even more worthwhile.

The events planned by the Student Alumni Council included activities such as the pep rally on the Diag, which consisted of performances by the marching band and a video montage. After the 70th annual mudbowl, students were in high spirits when the game finally came on Saturday, and the University crushed Indiana, 58-0. " It was so cool to see everyone come together for the game, and to see us trounce Indiana made it all the better! " exclaimed Jon Schwartz, a first-year SNRE student.

It was the night of the highly anticipated Indian American Student Association, or IASA, show. Through a selective process, students were gathered to perform in this spectacular of song, dance and fashion. The title of the show was " Nexus: Linking Generations " and amidst the song and dance performers conveyed some of the important issues that faced Indian Americans students and their families. Yet the event attracted more than just proud parents; Hill Auditorium was packed with University students and Indian Americans from far and wide. LSA junior Pamela Inbasekaran was among those in attendance. " What I love most about the IASA show " she recalled, " is its ability to introduce the Indian-American culture, a culture many Americans are unfamiliar with, to our diverse campus in a fashion that both educates and entertains. This is the hallmark of any great performance.

John Cusak, Barbara Lieberman, Jennifer Gramholm, Debbie Stabenow and Lynn Rivers came to campus to talk about women ' s accomplishments in society. They recognized that after 1920, women had become more prominant leaders in society. The event was co-sponsored by College Democrats, an active group at the University. Due to them, the student population was able to participate in a special event and hear famous people speak about their experiences in life. John Cusak, being the only male speaker on the panel, emphasized the importance of voting. They talked about their struggles, but in the end celebrated the fact that they had made amazing accomplishments in the past 80 years. They were talented and inspiring speakers that shed light on the fact that women were leaders in modern society, an incredible leap forward in equality since 1920. by Sara Wilson Battle for Blood The heated rivalry between the University and Ohio State was undeniable, but once a year the feud actually drew blood - during the annual Blood Battle. Started in 1 982, the event involved two weeks of daily blood drives at both schools in a race to gather the most pints of blood. The American Red Cross supplied nurses and equipment for the Blood Battle, while the University ' s Alpha Phi Omega service fraternity handled volunteers and publicity and the Blood Drives United group provided the necessary funds. Approximately 2700 donors and 1 50 volunteers and nurses contributed to the success of the Battle. The final count was strikingly close: Ohio State, 1681; the University, 1679. " Despite losing the Battle by two pints, it ' s still an incredible accomplishment, " said Susannah Nichols, president of Alpha Phi Omega. " The blood raised between the two schools was enough to save around 10,000 lives! " And that was definitely something worth fighting for. by Cortney Dueweke Boh n One of rock ' s greatest living legends graced the stage of Hill Auditorium in the fall. Bob Dylan gave by all reviews an outstanding performance at the acoustically perfect venue. Dylan revived old favorites such as " Desolation Row " and " To Ramona " beginning his slide into a deep jam session. Dylan and his band played six acoustic hits followed up by the same number on the electric guitar. For the final ditty, " Leopord-Skin Pill-Box Hat, " he invited Saturday Night Live jammer G.E. Smith onto stage. Smith only accelerated the energy that Dylan had brought to the stage. After a brief interlude, Dylan wrapped up the show with an amazing seven song encore, featuring " If Dogs Run Free, " " All Along the Watchtower " and " Blowin ' In The Wind. " Smith rejoined the band for a portion of the encore, by Liz Mauck 11.30.00 QkE The Circus of Freaks was essentially a one-man show of devilishly juvenile antics by the comic Andy Dick. Dick, who was known for his offbeat humor, entered after opening act Pat Dixon began the show. Dick, accompanied by a guitarist from his band " The Bitches of the Century, " proceeded into what he called " an introspective musical journey of my life. " Songs of the evening included " I ' m not stalking you I ' m just calling a lot, " " Little Brown Ring, " and " Sissy Chrissy Katan, " a revenge song against SNL star Chris Katan. Dick also performed several stunts throughout the show including getting his girlfriend ' s best friend on his cell phone, asking audience members onto the stage for a date (including one young gentleman named Ben), and relaying tales of his coked-up driving adventures. Dick who was previously the character Matthewon NBC ' s News Radio, also was known for having smashed his head through an Emmy awards podium, and stripping to his underwear on the Rosie O ' Donnell Show. The show was concluded with the appearance of Dick ' s supposed sober sponsor Paul Henderson who showed up on stage with a glass of vodka singing a song. Henderson proceeded to vomit on Dick ' s face, prompting Dick to run off the stage. After a period of chaos and confusion the pair returned to the stage appearing amicable; however, after a short time Henderson pulled Dick ' s boxers briefs down and vomited on his rear. This left the whole audience stunned and questioning whether this was an Andy Kaufmanesque routine. by Liz Mauck 126 November Events A fatigued student pours herself orange juice to recharge her immune system after giving blood.

However, no one could have predicted that the Sun- shine State with its 25 Elec- toral College votes would ulti- mately determine the 43rd President of the United States. During a night that looked more like a football game than a political contest, millions of viewers around the world watched as Florida and the coveted 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue address switched party lines multiple times. With only one percent of precincts reporting, the media prema- turely called the state for Vice President Al Gore. However, as more ballots were counted, a margin of less than one per- cent separated the two lead- ing candidates and the state was returned to the undecided column. At one point during the early morning hours, Florida was called for Gover- nor George W. Bush but the decision was again retracted when the margin separating the two narrowed. In the weeks following the election, Florida ' s ballots were counted, recounted, hand counted and even followed by political law- suits and judicial review in an attempt to please both par- ties and establish the true win- ner. Bush ultimately won Florida and the election by the narrowest of margins. by Y vonne Humenay After a hard fought battle that lasted well past the November 7 election.

Florida ' s 25 electoral votes gave them the White House in the closest election in history, photo courtesy of The Associated Press 130 Politics LONG ROAD TO THE WHITE HOUSE Both Republican George W. Bush and Democrat Al Gore held their breath after the na- tional election as they waited in angst to see who would ultimately win the grueling battle over the White House. The two political rivals began their ugly battle very early in the campaign, stating their respective views on contro- versial issues such as abortion and affirmative action in an attempt to win the votes of the nation. Unlike Bush who favored parental consent, Gore told his supporters that he opposed the idea that minors should have to notify their parents before they could receive an abortion. He also stated that he did not agree with Bush ' s idea of banning late-term abortions and allowing abor- tions only in cases of rape, incest and life of the mother, rather than as a form of birth control. While Gore strongly favored affirmative action and spoke about the need to give minorities a fair chance by exercising their capabilities as studentsand businessmen and women, Bush strongly op- posed the idea. He believed that the system was corrupt and gave advantages to mi- norities for unjust reasons. Another issue very relevant in the presidential election was the differences of character between the two candidates. While Gore came across as mechanical, stolid and an al- most too-intelligent Washing- ton politician, Bush was viewed as the down to earth, Ex-President ' s son from out of town. In the end, after weeks of speculation, the " good ' ol boy " from Texas came out victorious. After his motions for yet another recount were denied, Gore finally succeeded to Governor Bush on Decem- ber 8, one month and one day after the national election. by Yvonne Humenay Ralph Nader for President Green Party candidate Ralph Nader makes a campaign stop at the University. With the election so close, many looked to Nader to see what effects a serious third-party condender would have on the election, photo by An ' Melber RALPH NADER Behind the immense shadows of George W. Bush and Al Gore in the 2000 presidential election stood third-party can- didate Ralph Nader. " One of the most influential Americans of the Twentieth Century, " according to Time Magazine, he won an impressive 2. 7 per- cent of the popular vote dur- ing the desperate scrounge for support among the other candidates. Although a mi- nority for popular support, Nader had a profound effect on the nation since 1965, when he released his book, " Unsafe at Any Speed, " which called for a reform of the au- tomobile industry During the election, there was speculation that Nader and the green party took many needed votes away from Gore, causing many demo- crats to be furious at the third party candidate. But Nader supporter first-year residen- tial college student Beth Christensen argued, " We ' re not out to spoil the system, we voted for [Nader] because we believe in what he stands for. " Christensen went on to summarize Nader ' s four basic beliefs: ecological wisdom, grass roots democracy, non- violence, and social justice. " I want to be part of the reform movement and the green party is here in part to be a political watchdog of the democrats and republicans, and I believe that is exactly what we have achieved.

" photo courtesy of Comedy Central INDECISION 2000: AEE TOO EASY " Calling our coverage ' Inde- cision 2000 ' was a bit at first a light-hearted jab, perhaps an attempt at humor. We had no idea that the [American] people were going to run with that. " These words, spoken by Comedy Central comentator Jon Stewart could not have been more correct. As the Presidential Election went from twenty-four hours to twenty-four days and be- yond TV shows that were not known for objectivity but rather comedy and farce, such as The Daily Show and Satur- day Night Live, took every pos- sible opportunity to satirize the " indecision " of the na- tion, or rather the leaders of the nation. Through skits, songsand political comentary, these shows, along with oth- ers, poked fun at everything from Gore ' s unending struggle to win at least one out of five of the Florida re- counts, to Bush ' s perceived ineptness at running the coun- try. To add to the turmoil, the uneventful, non-scrutinized elections of Canadian and Mexican leaders only fur- thered the sarcastic comentary as our election process be- came known as the " most corrupt " in North America. Jon Stewart summed up the election by saying, " You know America has gone through a wormhole when Pat Buchanan is the voice of fairness and reason. We ' re living in a freak zone!

The measure failed despite millions of dollars worth of campaign ads and the assistance of a coalition of CatholicChurchesand people concerned about the educa- tion their children were re- ceiving at inner-city schools. The proposal would have re- quired school districts whose four-year graduation rate was lowerthan two-thirds in 1998- 1 999 to give students attend- ing them a chance to move to private or parochial schools using vouchers worth $3,300. Proposal 1 supporters told votersthe measure would save poor children in failing school districts and that vouchers evened the educational play- ing field by offering low-in- come students an alternative to ineffective, unsafe public schools. Opponents coun- tered that voucher programs took money, better students, and concerned parents away from already troubled public school systems without offer- ing any solutions to existing problems. Another criticism was that taxpayer-funded vouchers for tuition at reli- gious schools unconstitution- ally breached the separation between church and state. by Yvonne Humenay FROM WHTTF HOUSE TO Hillary Rodham Clinton be- came the only first lady ever elected to the United States Senate on November 7. She also made history in New York, becoming the first woman senator to be elected from the state. Clinton won her seat after sixteen months of hard and rigorous campaigning around the Empire State. Dur- ing her run for office, Clinton wasfirst matched against New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani. However, when Giuliani an- nounced he was going through a divorce, as well as battling prostate cancer, he dropped from the race six months before Election Day, four-time Congressman and former prosecutor Rick Lazio jumped into the race. By mid- October, the three candidates had combined to spend sev- enty-eight million dollars in the longest, costliest race in the state ' s history. The race SENATE was riddled with mud slinging from both sides pertaining to such issues as character, place of birth, marital fidelity and campaign finance reform. In the final weeks leading up to the election with Lazio closing in on Clinton ' s small lead, it became apparent to both sides that the single most impor- tant force that would deter- mine the outcome of the con- test was who came out to vote. Getting out the vote had been a factor in elections since the invention, practically, of the voting booth. It involved imploring supporters to turn out, but also required trying to discourage other voters with blanket attacks thatwere designed to keep voters from coming out at all. With this in mind, the airways and televi- sion stations were riddled with a flurry of new attack ads as the campaigns came to a close. by Yvonne Humenay l 1 132 Politics Missouri Governor Mel Carnahan talks with reporters in Jefferson City during his campaign for the U.S. Senate.

The plane crash that killed Carnahan, his son and an aid October 1 6 turned the eyes of America on Missouri where the battle between Carnahan and Ashcroft went from bitter to bizarre. Because the crash occurred too late to revise the ballot, Carnahan ' s widow had agreed priorto election day to take her husband ' s place in the event of his possible elec- tion to the Senate. As the rest of the nation awoke Novem- ber 8 to find their electoral system in limbo after televi- sion commentators played an all-night, winless game of hot potato with Florida ' s electoral votes, Missouri residents faced that unusual state of affairs and more.

While in Congress, Abraham had been an active member of multiple commit- tees, including the Budget Committee, the Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee, the Small Busi- ness Committee and multiple sub-committees.

RU-487 offered another option besides keeping the pregnancy, adoption and surgical abortion, photo by Abby Johnson THE NEW ABORTION CONTROVERSY On September 28 the Food and Drug Administration ap- proved RU-486, also known by its generic name mifepristone and its brand name Mifegyne, a new drug nicknamed the " abortion pill. " By pro-abortion and women ' s rights advocates the drug was said to be the greatest ad- vance for women ' s health since birth control. Used in conjunction with Cytotec, also known as misoprostol, the drug duo could be used within the first 49 days after concep- tion instead of a surgical abor- tion. RU-486 killed the em- bryo by cutting off its nutrient supply while still in the uterus and Cytotec softened the uter- ine walls and forced, some- times very painful, labor-like contractions causing an ex- pulsion of the embryo from the women ' s body. When us- ing the two drugs there was about an 85-95% chance of a successful abortion. There had been much controversy sur- rounding the two drugs though, much of which came from Searle, the manufacturer of Cytotec. Searle pharmaceutical company senta letterto thou- sands of hospitals and doctor ' s offices one month prior to the FDA approval of RU-486 stat- ing its disapproval of Cytotec ' s use as a labor inducer. Cytotec ' s purpose, approved by the FDA, was for use in patients with ulcers.

The fastest growing Internet com- munity in history, Napster made downloading musicfast and effortless through file- sharing. For students living in University housing, Ethernet access afforded the benefit of quick downloads, making Napster an important part of dorm life. Yet students ' ac- cess to the popular site was threatened when multiple lawsuits almost closed down the site. In a strategic move, Napster joined with Bertelsmann AG, a large me- dia company with a newly formed eCommerce group ac- cessible to over 200 million online users worldwide. The alliance was aimed to trans- form Napster into a member- ship-based service that pro- vided payments to rights- holders while retaining free file-sharing. Bertelsmann agreed in turn to withdraw its lawsuit against the company. Yet many feared Napster would meet its end and pre- pared for the loss of an invalu- able resource.

It lets people explore different types of music with- out having a lot of knowledge about it ahead of time.

Because of almost 200 fatal rollover crashes and countless other injuries due to separations, blowouts and other problems with the tires, the recall cost the companies millions of dollars in settle- ments. In addition to the as- tronomical expenses, the 100 year-old Firestone brand name was tarnished, as most dealers would not restock Firestone tires, due to strong consumer opinions, which left the door wide open for rival tire companies to come in and sweep up business. " Person- ally, I would never purchase Firestone tires, because I would never want to put my- self or anyone else who is in my car in danger, especially with the recent recall of the product and all of the deaths that happened. It just scares me, " asserted Nicole LaRocca, a first-year pre-med student. by Jennie Putvin Retrospect 135 NEWS FROM Around the COUNTRY Ongoing conflict between the United States and OPEC create havoc for American drivers. Over the summer, gas prices crept up past $2 a gallon, much higher than the public was used to paying photo by Abby Johnson THF SOARING PRTCF OF GASOLINE On February 2, United States gas prices averaged $1.41 a gallon across the country, and though prices seemed high then, they skyrocketed the following summer. After mini- mal raises in gas prices since the first of the year, prices reached $1.49 a gallon by March 12. America had no idea that prices would shoot up to more than $2.00 a gal- lon in Chicago by June 7. By the 26th of the same month, there were efforts by lawmak- ers in Illinois and around the country to suspend the sales tax on gasoline in an effort to relieve prices for consumers. With prices climbing higher than they had since 1980, when oil-producing countries conspired effectively against oil-consuming countries and gas cost $2.55 per gallon, America feared a repeat of the fuel crisis of the 1970s. Though lines began to form at gas stations as Americans across the country began to hoard gasoline in fear that the tension with the countries in the Middle East would increase the price of gasoline or cut off oursupply completely. Ameri- can prices lowered some in August and September of 2000, Europe continued to see strangling prices over $4 per gallon in December as the United States headed into one of the coldest winters on record. by Sarah Johnson 136 National Events A firefighter monitors a backburn to ensure it does not spread in Southern California. Dozens of wildfires sparked up across the west due to months of dry weather, photo courtesy of the Associated Press WESTERN WILDFIRES The year saw an outbreak of fires across the West. In Cali- fornia there were an abun- dance of wildfires that broke out across the southern part of the state. One fire -caused by a cigarette that was flicked fromacar-tookfirefightersa week to contain. However, as the weather cooled down, the " hot spots " in California be- came less susceptible to fire. Wind was a problem that the firefighters had to deal with when trying to put out the fire. As night fell, the wind increased, causing the fire to spread more than it had dur- ing the day. Rising humidity in areas like Alpine, where the fire had occurred, made the possibility of fires increase. Thanks to the cold front push- ing its way through Califor- nia, firefighters had a chance to control the spreading of the fire and put an end to a serious environmental hazard. The statistics for the total amount of fires that occurred in the West were larger than they had ever been before. There were about 7,000 fires that took place in California during the year 2000 and about 235, 000 acres burned. Other western states that had a large amount of fires occur during the year 2000 were Arizona, which had 3,500 fires and burned 86,000 acres of land; Oregon, which had 2,000 fires and burned 477,000 acres; and Washing- ton, which had 1,000 fires and burned 257, 000 acres of land. The number of firesthat occurred during the year 2000 totaled 90,674. The cost in damage was around $1 .6 bil- lion dollars and the number of acres burned in total was 7,259,159. Altogether, there were many fires during the year 2000 and a lot of result- ing damages to not only people ' s homes but to the en- vironment itself. by Sara Wilson In one of the smartest advertising schemes to come along in awhile, the market- ing team behind " The Grinch, " starring Jim Carrey, put the furry green monster on everything from cereal boxes to commercials. With so much marketing hype, it was no wonder that the much anticipated movie grossed millions during the 2000 holiday season, photo by Naomi Trager SMART ADVERTISING Universal Pictures struck gold with their release of " Howthe Grinch Stole Christmas, " star- ring wacky comedian Jim Carrey. Though Carrey com- manded large audiences for all of his typically gut-busting performaces, it was perhaps the total saturation of the ad- vertising spectrum that gave the movie such popularity during the 2000 Christmas season. Department stores, the radio and even the post office ' s ink on packages served as reminders that the gnarly old Grinch was looming in a nearby theater, waiting for our attention. Country music star Faith Hill headlined the movie soundtrack, which also fea- tured pop staples N ' Sync and Busta Rhymes.

The bombing that occurred on Thursday October 17 left more than thirty sailors in- jured in addition to those that had passed away. The Cole, a $1 billion state- of-the-art destroyer, was help- ing to enforce the United Nations oil embargo against Iraq. The blast caused by the " shaped charge " detonation caused major damage to the Cole when it detonated on the side of the ship. As of January, 2001 the attackers had not been identi- fied. However, the United States Intelligence Agency had been focusing the efforts of their investigation on the Egyptian Islamic group Jihad. The group had a history of attacking the West and had ties to Saudi guerrilla leader, Osama bin Laden.

After leaving office, Milosevic went into hiding to avoid prosecution on war crimes charges, photo courtesy of BBC News T AST STAND Unbeknownst to some, the United States was not the only country that dealt with politi- cal unrest and election tur- moil. For the past thirteen years, the Baltic region known as Yugoslavia had been under the rule of Communist party leader Slobadon Milosevic. Branded by critics as the " Butcher of the Balkans, " Milosevic employed the use of the state-run media to con- tinue to dominate the politi- cal landscape through years of war and oppression. That all changed with the dawning of Serbian nationalist and presidential nominee Vojislav Kostunica who appealed to voters with his door-to-door campaigning style and undeterrable attitude. After a hard fought and ugly battle, the Yugoslavian nation elected Kostunica on September 24, 2000. Nevertheless, Milosevic was not ready to admit defeat and relinquish his position. What ensued were three days of civil unrest across Serbia and Yugoslavia where hun- dreds of thousands of dem- onstrators demanded and ul- timately were awarded the resignation of their fallen president and the inaugura- tion of their chosen leader, Kostunica. by Yvonne Humenay Members of the Russian Northern Fleet and crew of the Kursk stand in front of their submarine. When the Kursk went down during a routine test of new weap- onry she took all 118 sailors with her. photo courtesy of the Associated Press THE SINKING OF THE KURSK Drifting quietly beneath the Barents Sea was a Russian submarine named the Kursk. The day was to be the culmi- nation of the past four months of training exercises and war games carried out by Russia ' s most powerful Northern Fleet. To top off the four months of work, a new torpedo was to be tested. It was a highly clas- sified rocket-propelled tor- pedo titled the VA-1 1 1 that would be fired from the Kursk. The plan was to fire the tor- pedo at 1 1 :30 am on the 1 2th day of August 2000. Just a few minutes before that time the captain, GennadyLyachin, gave the order to fire, setting into motion several minutes of chaos that followed. The torpedo blew up inside its holding tube on the sub. The hatch was blasted open al- lowing the full force of the explosion to be released upon the rest of the vessel. Due to the volume of the launch that was expected from a normal firing all of the watertight hatches within the sub had been left open to allow the noise to dissipate throughout the entire length of the sub. That proved to be the most fatal mistake made. As water rushed into the front end of the Kursk which had, by that time, been blown off by a huge explosion of a warhead all of the crew within the first four of nine sections of the sub were dead. Within the next 3 hours or so the rest of the crew who had survived the initial blast died from as- phyxiation. Nine days later Norwegian divers managed to open the rear hatch and looked into the depths of the mangled sub. The hull was completely flooded and there were no survivors to be found. by Rob McTear i 138 International Events Accident investigators and emergency workers look through the wreckage at the scene of the Air France Concorde crash near Paris.

" Fit- ting that it was the year that NASA, in a joint venture with the Russian Space Program, launched Alpha, the Interna- tional Space Station. Ameri- can astronaut Bill Shephard, along with Russian cosmo- nauts Sergei Krikalev and Yuri Gidzenko spent the first part of2001 some 240 miles above the Earth, circling every ninety minutes, zooming by fifteen sunrises and sunsets each day during their four month resi- dency on Alpha. When the joint US-Russian team took occupancy November 3, 2000, it marked what hoped to be the beginning of a permanent human presence in space. After f ou r decades of space travel and numerous accounts of astronauts returning to Earth with weakened bones, muscles and cardiovascular systems, NASA was conduct- ing research on Alpha to study how changes due to microgravity actually occured in humans and other mam- mals in an attempt to discover how humans may be able to stay in space for long periods of time. Another key area of research was in the field of biotechnology, where astro- nauts conducted experiments to examine the growth of pro- tein crystals, the growth of tumors in microgravity and a search for better ways to pro- tect people in space from harmful radiation. Although it had its critics, the $6 billion project, which will not be completed until 2006, promised to give the people of Earth a lot of an- swers when it came to bio- logical and technological re- search in space. by Yvonne Humenay THE CONCORDE JET CRASH The Concorde Jet almost lost its reign as the world ' s only supersonic passenger jet when the first ever accident involv- ing a Concorde jet crashed July 25, 2000.

He was ranked the 1 cyclist in the world, notably com- peted with the United States cycling team in the summer Olympic games in Atlanta, bought a beautiful new house and wasapproaching his25th birthday. Tragically, in Octo- ber of the same year he was diagnosed with testicular can- cer. With only a 50 50 chance for survival, Lance underwent risky surgical procedures and an aggressive form of chemo- therapy, which miraculously cured him of his disease, but left him emotionally and physi- cally scarred. He almost im- mediately returned to cycling and started the Lance Armstrong Foundation, an international, nonprofit orga- nization established to ben- efit cancer research as well as promote awareness and early detection. In one of the most stun- ning public recoveries from such a procedure, Armstrong returned to racing with a ven- geance, and won many pres- tigious races before winning both the 1 999 and 2000 Tours de France, astounding the world and giving hope to many cancer victims.

The Olympic games were full of surprises, defeats and up- set victories. The United States won the race for the highest medal count as well as gold medal count. The U.S. finished the summer games with a total of 97 medals of which 39 were gold. With the help of the 33 medals brought home by the swimming team, the U.S. barely scraped byfrom having the lowest medal totals since 1964. There were many surprises in Sydney that saw the defeat of U.S. favorites. The men ' s 4x100 meter relay team lost for the first time in that event. Other upsets occurred in women ' s gymnastics, women ' s soccer and boxing. Though there were many disappointments in Sydney, the Olympians with Univer- sity affiliations were a bright spot in the games. The Uni- versity was represented by 20 Olympians and of the 1 5 ath- letes that competed, nine medals were brought home. The athletes from the Univer- sity represented the United States as well as six other for- eign countries making the University and the countries represented proud.

Beating their cross-town rivals in five games, the Yankees claimed their third consecutive World Series title and their fourth in the past five years. Following the game-end- ing victory, Derek Jeter was named MVP after batting .409.

Hav- ing not homered in a World Series game before the sea- son, Jeter ended that streak by doing so for two games in a row. The Yankees opened up the series winning the first three games. When they seemed to be out of the run- ning, the Mets came back in game four with a 4-2 victory. Tradition would have its way though as the Yankees sealed their title in game five. The series did not progress without incident however. The lasting image of this series was Roger Clemens throwing his split bat in the direction of pitcher Mike Piazza, sparking an altercation. An image the Yankees preferred, however, was that of owner George Steinbrenner holding another prize for the team ' s trophy case. by Evan Busch Tiger Woods and Jack Nicholas share a laugh after completing play in the first round of the PGA Champion- ship.

For roughly the past 50 years, men ' s soccer has been at the University as a club sport. Through much hard work and determination by players and coaches alike over the past four years, the 2000 season began with a spot on the varsity circuit. At the helm was head coach Steve Burns, who had been the head coach of the club team for the past seven years. With many years of playing and coaching experience, it was only natural that Burns would be given the varsity coaching position. Behind Burns were assistant coaches Walt Barrett from Eastern Michigan and Ernie Yarborough from Indiana. " The jump has been incredible. It is a dream come true to be able to play varsity ball here at UM, " said fifth year senior and captain Jack Stead. " Besides the free gear, trainers, more exposure, and all the other things we didn ' t have as a club team, the best thing about being varsity is playing the best competition possible and being able to represent the University of Michigan. " Of course there were worries that the team would not come together as a unit since no one really knew what to expect. However, after the first few games these worries were dispelled as quickly as they had arisen. " Of my five years here at UM, this is the closest team I have ever been a part of. We ' re a tight knit group, like a family, " said Stead. Though the record books may not have shown it, the team fit together very well and only grew stronger as the year went on. With wins over such prominent teams as DePaul and Northwestern, something must have gone right. Freshman forward Ian Hirschfield scored the University ' s first goal as a varsity team, leading to a 1-0 win over DePaul. Senior goalkeeper Albert Geldres recorded the team ' s first shutout against DePaul with a spectacular display of acrobatics. The 2000 team set a precedent.

That was rather impressive given the fact that at any one time there were two to three starting freshmen and sophomores. With such inexperience on the field one would have thought that the team would have suffered, but quite the opposite occurred. Through the guidance of the coaches and the leadership of the upper- classmen, everyone worked together to accomplish the team goals. " The whole team is one big family. Most of the upperclass- men live together and the girls who don ' t are always over visiting, doing homework and just hanging out - even the freshmen, " said forward and senior captain Kacy Beitel. " We make it a point to get everyone involved in what is going on, on and off the field. " This feeling of family helped the team immensely throughout the season, leading to wins over 12 Missouri and Big Ten rival Ohio State among others. " The season had quite a few ups and downs and we have played a very tough schedule, " said head coach Debbie Belkin Rademacher. " We have a great chance though at winning the Big Ten Tournament that we won last season in 1999. " The team ended up in the 3 spot beginning the tournament. Lending to this high seed was Beitel, who led the team in goals and led the Big Ten in assists. Along with Beitel up front were freshman Amber Wilson and sophomore Abby Crumpton, whose goals - combined with Beitel ' s - accounted for more than half of the goals scored during the 2000 season. First-year goalkeeper Suzie Grech also helped the team along the way with an outstanding season in the pipes and sophomore sweeper Andrea Kayal did an amazing job leading the defense.

The Wolverines finished a remarkable season on a 3-2 penalty-stroke goal loss in overtime. Even though the Wolverines went undefeated in Big Ten play, and were crowned not only Big Ten champs, but also Big Ten tournament champs, a repeat of reaching the NCAA championship game was not at hand. The defeat came in the 2nd round of the NCAA Tournament after the Wolverines defeated William Mary in the first round. Aside from the let down, this squad accomplished a great season led by seniors Kelli Gannon and Courtney Reid. Reid was named Big Ten Tournament MVP as well as 1st team All Big Ten. Gannon herself was named Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year and also to the Big Ten All-Tournament team. Others receiving recognition were first year student Kristi Gannon (Big Ten Freshman of the Year, Big Ten All-Tournament team), freshman April Fronzoni (1st team All Big Ten, Big Ten All-Tournament team), junior Catherine Foreman (2nd team All Big Ten, Big Ten All-Tournament team), and senior Jeanne Chin (2nd team All Big Ten). This much talent could only have been led by Big Ten Coach of the Year Marcia Pankratz. Pankratz broke the all-time Michigan win record of 74 by recording her 75th, 76th and 77th victories this season to bring her all-time record to 77-32. The departures of Kelli Gannon and Courtney Reid were a great loss to the Wolverines. Gannon and Reid ended their careers as Michigan ' s 2nd and 4th All-Time Point leaders, respectively. This dynamic duo helped the Wolverines break team records for goals, assists, points, consecutive victories, and season winning percentage. Reid, along with Catherine Foreman, tied the individual record for assists in a season. Freshman April Fronzoni broke the individual record for most goals scored by a freshman.

Only three starting position players returned to Ann Arbor for the 2000 campaign. The depth of field experience coupled with a young and inexpe- rienced pitching staff led to diminished preseason expectations for the baseball team. However, what the team lacked in quan- tity, it made up for in quality; the returning players were led by preseason All-American and projected Big Ten Player of the Year, David Parrish. The preseason predictions proved to be all too accurate as the baseball team opened the season by winning just six of its first twenty games. Not only did the team lose games in the first month of the season but also Bryce Ralston, senior junior ace of the pitching staff, to season ending elbow surgery. Ralston, one of three captains, was valued for both his pitching prowess and his leadership on the young team. Despite early season difficulties and the loss of their premier pitcher, the team rebounded well during the meat of the Big Ten season. After starting the season with a disappointing 6-13-1 record, the team rallied to win nine of its next sixteen games, but closed out the season by dropping 12 of its final 17 games. However, there were bright spots in the season closing slide; sophomore pitcher Bobby Korecky was named Big Ten Pitcher of the Week for his dominating one-hitter against Iowa on May 14. The 2000 Baseball team ' s final record of 20-32-1 was enough for eighth place in the Big Ten, but not enough to qualify for the Big Ten Tournament. The 2000 season marked only the second time in five years that the Wolverine baseball team failed to qualify for post-season play. The preseason predictions not only rang true for the team, but also for David Parrish. Parrish was named to the All Big Ten Conference first team after finishing the season second in the Big Ten batting race with a .41 5 batting average. Parrish garnered further recognition when the New York Yankees used the 28th overall pick in the amateur draft on the Yorba Linda, California native. Sophomore Bobby Korecky also earned postseason honors with his selection to the All Big Ten Conference third team. by Jon Hammer Preparing for battle, a Wolverine pitcher loosens his arm.

The team started out their 23rd season with a bang and never let up, shutting out Stanford 2-0 at the Campbell Cartier Classic in Poway, Califor- nia. They claimed third place in that tournament, as well as in their next, the South Florida Gladstone ' s Tournament, then followed up as Gold Consola- tion Champs in the NFCA Leadoff Classic. Despite the weather difficulties that plagued April ' s games, the team captured a string of first place honors at the Florida State Invitational in Tallahassee, the Purdue Boilermaker Classic and the Big Ten Conference Tournament. In May, the second largest crowd in Alumni Field history came out to watch the Wolverines grasp second place in the NCAA Softball Regional 8 Championship, finishing their season with a USA Today NFCA Coaches Poll ranking of 13 and a record of 45- 16-1. The team remained the highest-ranked Big Ten team in the poll throughout the season. Multiple players on the University ' s team received individual honors during the 2000 softball season. Sophomore second baseman Kelsey Kollen, freshman outfielder Melinda Moulden and sophomore catcher designated player Stefanie Volpe claimed Big Ten Player of the Week honors during the Senior Rebecca Tune sends a chopper season, while freshman Marissa Young was named Pitcher of the Week.

Their endeavors brought each of them closer together in making close friendships. Junior Nicole Sockolosky affirmed that her fa- vorite part of being a cheerleader was the friends she made. " You build really close relationships with the people you spend so much time with. It ' s important to have that with every activity, but especially sports where it is a group effort. Cheerleading tryouts were in March, and con- sisted of a three day clinic where prospectives learn the basics. On the third day they have an audition in front of several judges during which they perform a tumbling pass, a back tuck and two stunts with a partner. Head coach Pam St. John believes that cheerleading is crucial to sports. " I think that they are part of the tradition of the game. They [cheer- leaders] bring a lot of enthusiasm, love of school and athletics to the game. That ' s what the game ' s all about. " Looking back at his cheerleading experience, fifth yearseniorcomputerengineering major Andy Marble remembered Home- coming 2000 as a very special moment. " All the alumni cheerleaders came back and it was really a lot of fun to see all these old guys and older women come back and they can still do all the crazy stunts. That ' s a huge tradition. " For St. John, working with the 47 total cheerleaders in both co-ed and all girls ' teams has been the best part of her career. " The students at this age are very optimistic and very enthusiastic about life. I love to watch them grow and make the transition from being so young into going into the real world.

The Universitys football team ' s three losses were by a f tota ' f seven points. A missed Wolverine field goal, a just-barely-good m m If Purdue field goal, and a fumble -all with less than four minutes remaining - cost the Wolverines three games and possibly a place in the national title game. Despite its heartbreaking losses, the team collected the program ' s 40th Big Ten Championship and earned a bowl appearance for the program ' s 26th consecutive year. The 2000 season began on a hot day in early September with the sixth ranked Wolverines destroying Bowling Green in Michigan Stadium. Redshirt freshman quarterback John Navarre stepped in for injured junior Drew Henson and promptly tied a school record for touchdown passes in a single game with four against Bowling Green. After their thorough dismantling of Bowling Green, the Wolverines appeared ready to surpass the expectations bestowed upon them by media, which tabbed the Wolverines as the preseason favorite to win the Big Ten Conference. The Maize and Blue entered the second week of the season as the third ranked team in the nation and the Rice University Owls quickly discovered why the Wolverines were so highly touted. The team set a new program record by scoring 28 points in the first quarter. Anthony Thomas juked and dragged Rice defenders for 131 yards and two touchdowns on only 14 carries during the rout. After two dominant performances, a confident Wolverine team headed to Pasadena to take on the UCLA Bruins and the oppressive Southern California heat. While the temperature on the field reached 1 10 degrees, Navarre never got hot; he completed just 1 of 10 passes in the second half. The Wolverines stayed close to the Bruins all game long due to the heroic effort of senior Anthony Thomas. Thomas carried the ball 24 times for 184 yards and had a chance to win the game. However, with just 3:27 left in the game, junior Hayden Epstein missed a 24 yard field goal, giving the Bruins a three point upset win. The Wolverines rebounded from the tough road loss at UCLA by rallying in the second half to beat Illinois under the leadership of the still injured Henson. Henson entered the game in the second half and rallied the team, with the help of the officials, from a two- touchdown deficit to a narrow win. After the Wolverine ' s two close road games, they returned to the Big House to beat Wisconsin for the 45th time in the program ' s history. Henson made his first career start and celebrated by throwing for 2 57 yards and a playground style touchdown to junior David Terrell.

After holding a 28- 10 halftime lead, the Maize and Blue offense disappeared in the second half and Purdue came back to win on a field goal with just four seconds remaining. After being forced to watch the Purdue students storm the field, the Wolverines had to wait a week before they could take out their aggressions on the Indiana Hoosiers. The Maize and Blue erupted for 35 first half points and 562 yards of total offense against the overmatched Hoosiers. The next week saw Michigan State visit the Big House, where the Wolverines shut out the Spartans. The team improved the program ' s overall record against Michigan State to 61 -27-5. Clutch defensive stands and Thomas ' 175 rushing yards were responsible for the Wolverine ' s victory. Coming off of two straight shutouts, the Wolverines had two weeks to prepare for a pivotal matchup with offensive powerhouse Northwestern. In one of the wildest games of the season, the two offenses combined for 1 189 yards and 102 points. Anthony Thomas ran for 199 yards, but his fumble on the Michigan 30 yard line with just 46 seconds left gave Northwestern a chance to take the lead. Northwestern capitalized on the fumble and scored a touchdown thirty seconds later. For the second time during the season, the Wolverines were forced to watch the opposition ' s fans storm the field. Despite their third heartbreaking loss of the season, the Wolverines came back to win their final two games of the season against heated rivals Penn State and Ohio State. The Wolverines first destroyed Penn State at home then traveled to Columbus to beat the Buckeyes for the eighth time in the past 1 1 meetings. The Buckeyes could not handle Henson all game long, as he completed 1 4 of 25 passes for 303 yards and three touchdowns. The win at Ohio State clinched a share of the program ' s 40th Big Ten Championship. After the regular season ended the post season accolades came rolling into Ann Arbor. Four Wolverines were selected as members of the All Big Ten first team, and 1 2 others received All Big Ten honorable mention honors. Thomas was one of three finalists for the Doak Walker Award given to the best running back in the country, and senior Steve Hutchinson, a four time All Big Ten First Team winner and an All American was named a finalist for the Lombard!

As seniors Anthony Thomas, Steve Hutchinson and Eric Wilson walked to mid-field for the coin toss of the Florida Citrus Bowl, they had the opportunity to do what no other senior class in the history of the University of Michigan had been able to do: win four consecutive bowl games. The only obstacle left for the senior class to conquer was a surprising but young nine and three Auburn team. While the pundits and logic predicted a Wolverine blowout, the Citrus Bowl was not decided until late in the fourth quarter, when Thomas pounded through the Auburn defensive line on every play. Thomas earned his second career Citrus bowl MVP award by rushing for 1 82 yards and two touchdowns on 32 carries. Thomas ' first touchdown came on an 1 1 yard run in the second quarter, on the play Thomas became Michigan ' s all- time leading rusher and he finished his career with 4,472 yards and 55 touchdowns on 924 carries. In the post game press conference, Coach Lloyd Carr offered high praise for Thomas saying that he " couldn ' t be prouder of anybody than Anthony Thomas. " Junior quarterback Drew Henson also had an outstanding Citrus Bowl. Henson completed 1 5 of 20 passes for 294 yards and two touchdowns. Henson connected with his favorite target, junior David Terrell, four times for 1 36 yards and a touchdown. In the days following the game, Terrell decided to forgo his one remaining year of college eligibility and enter the NFL draft. Both Michigan and Auburn ' s offenses were able to drive down the field seemingly at will. While the Michigan defense was able to contain sensational Auburn running back Rudi Johnson, they were unable to stop untouted Auburn quarterback Ben Leard.

Unfortunately, the men ' s team failed to earn a bid for the first time since 1992. They had not finished lower than 14th at the NCAA Championships since then. While the Wolverine team failed to qualify for the NCAA Championships, the team still sent junior Mark Pilja to represent the Maize and Blue. Pilja hoped to follow in the footsteps of current assistant coach and former national champion Kevin Sullivan. Sullivan won the national title for the Wolverines in 1997 and represented the United States with a fifth place finish at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney.

Led by head coach Mark Rothstein and four-year veteran coxswain Belinda Koo, the varsity team merited such honors as first place at the Big Ten Championships and fifth place at the NCAA Championships. Aside from these honors, women ' s rowing was not just a competitive team, but a family as well. As junior psychology major Christina Meyer voiced, " I came to the University know- ing nothing about crew and knowing nobody on the team. I will leave here having discovered amazing things about my body, my mind, and the true meaning of ' team. ' My teammates and coaches are the most inspirational people I have ever met. They will be my friends for the rest of my life. " Not only did the crew team earn outstanding times and secure many wins at meets, coach Mark Rothstein was named the 2000 Central Region Coach of the Year and co-Big Ten Coach of the Year. However, the awards did not stop there. Junior Kate Johnson was named Big Ten Conference Women ' s Rowing Athlete of the year, as well as the team ' s Athlete of the year. Other team awards included senior Jeanine Seeger being selected as the Maize and Blue Award recipient, senior Jaime Stilson receiving the Academic Achievement, honoring junior Laurel Donnell-Fink with the Most Improved Rower award, and Helen Dalis being recognized as the Freshman of the Year. Despite these awards, the women of crew knew how lucky they were to be parts of the team. Senior organizational studies major Caroline Gregory expressed, " Rowing has been like no sport I had ever done before in that it is ' the ultimate team sport. ' Getting to be a part of this program has enabled me to work day in and day out with some of the most amazing people on campus! " She went on to say, " Being a part of the Michigan Crew team has taught me more than just what would enable me to compete at my best. It has allowed me to learn about who I am as an individual and that if I want something bad enough, no one has the power to tell me I can ' t [have it].

The Maize and Blue returned five of six starters from the 1 999 team that enjoyed one of the best seasons in the program ' s history. The Wolverines stormed into the season ranked within the pre-season top twenty-five for the first time in the program ' s history. The Wolverines seemed to be ready to fulfill the expectations set by the pre-season polls when they opened the season by winning eight of their first nine matches. However, the team could not maintain the momentum of their first ten matches throughout the season. The Wolverines torrid start was tempered by a lackluster mid-season performance. In the middle of October the team went on a four game conference losing streak. Losses against Iowa, Minnesota, Penn State and Indiana seemed ready to topple the season. November, however, saw the team turn the season around again, as the Wolverines won their first three games of that month against Illinois, Michigan State, and Ohio State, respectively. The streaky season was a result of having a very difficult schedule. Of their first 31 matches, 20 were against teams that participated in the 1999 NCAA National Championship Tourna- ment. Despite the extremely difficult schedule the team still man- aged to finish the season well above the .500 mark. The Wolverines were led by fifth year senior Sarah Behnke and senior Shannon Melka; the pair were returning captains from the 1 999 squad. When healthy, Behnke had been a consistent starter for the Wolverines since her freshman year. Behnke entered the season needing 483 kills to break former teammate Karen Chase ' s school record of 1261.

After finishing its final club season with a 30-5 record, the women ' s water polo team became the thirteenth women ' s varsity team. Eleven former mem- bers of the club team joined the varsity team. Included among the eleven were two rookies of the year, four Big Ten First team members, six Academic Ail-Americans, and one two-time team MVP. While most first year varsity sports endured early season losses as they came together as a team, the women ' s water polo squad shot out of the gates with a series of blowout victories. Just 56 seconds into theirfirst match, junior Mandi Hagedorn recorded the first goal in Wolverine water polo history. The Maize and Blue went on to romp over Villanova in its inaugural match by a score of 1 8- 6. After demolishing Villanova, the Wolverines went on to crush both the University of Massachusetts and Hartwick College at the Princeton Invitational. The Wolverines were led into the water by former Long Beach City College coach and assistant United States National Team coach, Amber Drury-Pinto. As a player, Drury-Pinto competed in over 200 international games and was selected as the United States Water Polo Player oftheyearin 1991 and 1994.Thefirstyearsquad selected three captains, seniors Christy Lilley and Melissa Karjala and junior Delia Sonda, all three were former members of the club team.

The Wolverines finished the regular season placing in the top four in all but three of its 1 1 tournaments. The team ' s postseason came to an end when it finished in 1 1th place at the NCAA Central Regional Championships. The Wolverines finished just six shots out of ninth place and a trip to the NCAA National Championships - the top nine teams qualify for the NCAA National Championships. Despite a heart-wrenching end, the men ' s golf season succeeded beyond nearly all expectations. When the team won the Marshall Invitational on April 8, it marked the first time in five years that the men ' s golf team won two tourna- ments in a single season. The Wolverines added five third place finishes and one fourth place finish to their two victories, making for a very impressive season. In addition to the successful finishes, the team ' s season scoring average of T 3rd of 24 1st of 19 19th of 20 T 3rd of 11 4th of 11 3rd of 18 9th of 19 3rd of 18 1st of 20 T3rd of 17 T7th of 18 7th of 11 111th of 27 297.05 was their second best in the past ten years. The team benefited from strong seasons from sophomores Andrew Chapman and Andrew Matthews, junior Scott Hayes, and senior captain Michael Harris, all of whom finished with scoring averages in the top 25 in the Big Ten. Harris racked up numerous post season accolades, including his second consecutive National Golf Coaches Association Academic All-American Scholar award, the Michigan Male Athlete of the year, his fourth consecutive Academic All-Big Ten honor, and his second All-Big Ten First Team award. Harris concluded his collegiate career by qualifying for the 2000 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach, where he shot a 1 55 over the first two days but missed the cut. Harris was not the lone men ' s golf team member to have post season success.

When spirits were low, these musicians were there to lift them back up and keep the fans pumped. " Allot the issues for the Michigan Marching Band has been the way we provided entertainment and spirit for the University community in the stadium when we ' re in the stands, " said Marching Band Director Dr. James Tapia. Spending at least nine and a half hours per week rehearsing, these 380 students showed that com- mitment is a key asset. " I think that it is important to have an appreciation for hard work because we are out here well before the sun comes up and usually after the sun goes down, " said fifth-year senior Drum Major Gregg Whitmore. The time they spent working together to perfect their talent helped form camaraderie between the members, making bonds that will never break. Senior psychology major Jill Reeder affirmed that she will always remember the relationships she formed. When asked what she will miss next year, she responded " the group: the spirit of the group. The people are just amazing to be around and they are really supportive [on and off the field]. " One memory that Whitmore will always look Members of the marching band bring out a flag before the game against Michigan State. The pre-game show soluted University athletes who competed in the Olympic games in Sydney, Australia, photo by Mike Cutri back on fondly is when the group would sing " The Yellow and the Blue " before each game. He said, " We are always in the tunnel waiting and it ' s a real special thing because we are about to go out and the crowd ' s all getting pepped up. It ' s really a time for the marching band to have one last moment together before we are with the entire Michigan family in the stadium. " Along with the memories, Reeder remembers an embarrassing moment during a half-time show. " We were doing the routine when we were coming out on entry lines and suddenly the tuba in front of me stopped dead and I just smacked right into him. He asked if I -was OK and I was, but I was embar- rassed. " Tapia agreed that the students he works with make being a part of the Marching Band a worth- while experience. " I love everything about my job, the music making of these students is fantastic, just getting to know them on a personal level everyday. I am surrounded by this think tank and this kind of discipline and I think the thing about the Michigan Marching Band that is so special is that everybody in this program loves it and what it stands for in the University setting.

As a senior, Behnke was one of the team captains for the second year in a row. photo by Naomi Traeger Picture this: You are about 1 4 years old and so far everything in your life has been pretty good. You have an older sister who plays volleyball and so you play as well. That way, you both will always have someone to play with and to learn from. Then, one day at the doctor ' s office, you are diagnosed with Systemic Lupus. This is the story of senior psychology major Sarah Behnke. She was diagnosed with Lupus in 8 th grade and has been living with it ever since. Systemic Lupus is a connective tissue disorder in which the immune system is over-active. It begins to attack the body and can eventually attack vital organs such as the heart, liver and kidneys. There has yet to be a cure for Lupus, but there are medications that can be taken to reduce flare-ups and to greatly prolong life. Throughout the first five years after being diag- nosed, Sarah led a normal life in the town of Stevensville while attending Lakeshore High School. She played volleyball with her school as well as with a sophomore-junior Olympic team. There were few signs of the disease during those first five years, and that was the way that Sarah liked it. The summer before her first year at the Univer- sity, the disease suddenly attacked Sarah ' s blood causing her to develop anemia. The next summer the disease attacked her joints causing arthritis-like pain throughout her body. She was hospitalized and given immuno-suppressants to help control her immune system and anti-inflammatories to keep the joint pain in check. During her junior year Sarah was hospitalized again due to another major flare- up. Since that first flare-up after graduating high school, Sarah had fought Lupus and had come to be one of the best volleyball players that the University had ever seen. The 2000 season was her second year as captain of the volleyball team, a position she filled exceptionally well through her actions and words. In the 1999 season Sarah set the single-match kills record for the University at 34. Also, she led Michi- gan to a 1 st place win at the Bank of Fayetteville Invite and was an all-tournament pick along with teammate Alija Pittenger. One might think that playing any sport, let alone volleyball, would cause the joint pain to be unbearable. Said Sarah, " During a game I don ' tthink, ' oh my knee hurts, ' or ' oh man I wish my elbow would stop hurting. ' I am so focused on the game that I don ' t really pay attention to the pain. After the game I don ' t notice the pain as much either. " Showing the same toughness off the court as on, Sarah has fought through four tough years of school towards a career as a sports psychologist at a Division I school. She intended to take the knowl- edge that she has very much earned through her years as an athlete with Lupus and put that towards helping others overcome their disabilities and fears. Said Sarah, " I want to make sure that kids know they can continue playing through their problems. I would hate to see a great athlete give up playing because he felt overwhelmed or afraid of what might happen.

However, despite their offers, their free t-shirts were not seen around campus as much as one t-shirt in particular: the intramural champion shirt. From the Central Campus Recreation Building, to football games to Angell Hall, Intramural cham- pion T-shirts could even be seen on the coldest days in Ann Arbor. Students wore them to symbolize all the painstaking efforts that went into theirvictories. They saw the T-shirt as a symbol of their accomplish- ments, almost like a pragmatic trophy. When asked about his choice of wardrobe, sophomore Econom- ics major Marc Sackin responded, " In high school I was a varsity athlete in two sport varsity athlete. But lean not play varsity here at Michigan, so this T-shirt is almost like my Varsity jacket. " Also, students saw the shirt as something tan- gible that represented the pride they put into athlet- ics. Said sophomore industrial engineering major Rob Wilson, " Every time I put it on I think about my victory and it brings back all the emotions that go along with winning a championship. Even though it is not in front of millions of people, it ' s sort of like my own personal Super Bowl relived every time I wear it. " Although this free t-shirt is like any other, it represented something much more than a walking advertisement because it honored the athletic ex- cellence that students here displayed off the varsity athletic fields. by Ben Weiss Inside Sports 181 UMOIympians Tom Dolan celebrates winning the gold medal in the men ' s 400-meter individual medley at the Olympic games in Sydney.

However, for some student athletes, the summer of 2000 represented the culmination of their dreams, the Summer Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia. A total of fifteen Michigan Wolverines (both alumnae and current students) participated in the Olympic Games of Sydney. These current and past Wolverine athletes competed in many sports, in- cluding softball, running, the shot-put and javelin throw, and swimming. Much like the University, the Wolverine Olympic athletes represented a multi- tude of nations including the United States, Canada, Brazil, and the Netherlands. This diverse group was also one of the most successful classes of Wolverine Olympians in the history of the University. The Wolverines went home with a total of eight metals in hand. Of the eight, seven were won in the pool; an arena where the University swimmers domi- nated. The Wolverine swimmers won three gold metals and former Wolverine Tom Dolan even broke his own world record in the 400-meter individual relay. " It was a tough swim, " said Dolan. " I was feeling it coming home, but I knew if I got out ahead no one could beat me. " Dolan and the rest of the Michigan athletes put on an amazing showing both for their respective countries and for the Athletics department at the University. Considering entire countries like Ethiopia, the Czech Republic and Kazakhstan were unable to achieve eight medals, the fact that University ath- letes won eight is truly remarkable. It was a testa- ment to the individual athletes and the programs at the University that helped mold them into the Olympic champions that they had become.

At the beginning of the 2000-2001 season, the crew team was not even a true varsity sport team; they were only a club team. On September 8, however, significant progress was made. Athletic Director Bill Martin announced that club teams could petition to hold " club varsity " status, and the men ' s crew team, along with the lacrosse team, became classified as such. What did the elevation in status exactly mean? The team was still self-funded and administered through the Department of Rec- reational sports, but the men had a closer relation- ship to the University Athletic Department. However, this small change in status did not necessarily affectthe men on theteam. " Sure, there are some downsides to being a club, such as we don ' t get funding. ..but what I like about my team- mates and I is that we manage to work around these inconveniences and stick to business.

" It is a huge time commitment, but we all love doing it because in the spring we get to beat fully funded varsity programs and instill fear in the rowing com- munity, " In short, the classification between a varsity team and a club did not stand in the way of men ' s crew. These rowers still went through all of the pressure and anxiety, but at the same time, reaped many of the rewards of a University " team. " As President Ken Meyers, a senior majoring in business adminis- tration stated,. " Being a rower at the University of Michigan is one of the most rewarding experiences anyone can hope for during their college years. Competing at the highest levels of intercollegiate sports and the crazy, intensive training required to do so provides the requisites for upholding the hallowed Michigan tradition of student athleticism. It is with great pride that I call myself a Michigan oarsman. " by Jennie Putvin Inside Sports 185 I Wtosucceed A women ' s ice hockey player slaps the puck towards their oppo- nents ' goal. All home games were played at Yost, photo by Susan Chalmers Six a.m. practices, two games a week, a season that lasts from October to March-and this is not even a varsity sport. Then why did the women of the Women ' s Club Hockey Team seem to have more passion and energy than some varsity teams? " They ' re easy to work with. They always want to learn, and they take whatever I give with such a full heart and open mind, " said Head Coach HalKrenkel, kinesiology sophomore. After submitting a request for varsity status in 1998, the University had to choose between women ' s club water polo, lacrosse and hockey. In the end, water polo won out. " Water polo is a cheaper sport. Hockey equipment is expensive and they would have to make adjustments within Yost too, but when we made the request we received so much support from people all over the community and local newspapers, " said Co-captain Dana Aronson, senior economics major. " We ' d rather get up at 5 a.m. than not play, " she added. With three other women ' s Big Ten hockey teams having turned varsity in the past year, the players have renewed hope that it is something the University will begin thinking about again. As Central Collegiate Women ' s Hockey Associa- tion League champions last year, the team, in addi- tion, joined a new league this year. The American Collegiate Hockey Association added a woman ' s league this year and as a result, the University ' s club team will be able to compete in the spring for the first time nationally. A love for the game and a will to endure drove these women to succeed in what is often seen as a man ' s sport. " We ' re a great bunch and fun to watch. We could really use people ' s support, the increase in interest in women ' s hockey has made this year the first year the University has had an IM sport as well. If you don ' t want to get up at 5a.m., it ' s a really great way to play, " said Forward Jodi Berris, senior sports management and communica- tions major. As support for women ' s sports grew nationally and interest in women ' s hockey grew locally, the day the club hockey women turned varsity was seeming to get much closer. Not having varsity status did not sway them. " We have the really great chance to represent Michigan, and not too many students have that same opportunity, " said Berris. by Courtney Rangen 186 Women ' s Ice Hockey women ' sice hockey A Wolverine hockey player sweeps the puck away from their goal.

The Wolverines set up a basketball legacy of greatness that seemed hard to crush. The past year tested their strength and proved the durability of the men ' s basketball program at the University of Michigan. The program experi- enced many highs and lows that tested the wills of Head Coach Brian Ellerbe and the Michigan players. By his third year of coaching at the University, Ellerbe had put together many solid recruiting classes. During the year Ellerbe experienced difficulties because of the loss of three of his key players in just one season. Ellerbe insisted that the basketball program was stronger after going through the losses and the team was in a stage of rebuilding. After losing shooting guard Jamal Crawford after one season to the NBA, promising sopho- more Kevin Gaines and experiencing the transfer of Brandon Smith, the Wolverines rebounded back into the game. " Michi- gan basketball is fine, " Assistant Coach Scott Trost said. " Jamal was a good player, but we ' re still going to have a good basketball team. Michigan basketball will go on. " Small forward LaVell Blanchard returned from his sopho- more season after averaging 14.5 points and 8.1 rebounds. Center Josh Asselin who contributed 8.8 points and 5.4 re- bounds per night performance last season returned to the team. Also, the Wolverines of 2000-2001 bolstered their roster with one of the strongest recruiting classes since the Fab Five.

While fans may have wondered at the capabilities of a team made up of young freshman and sophomores, the Michigan Wolverines were eager to prove their abilities on the basketball court. Even though the players faced obstacles they played with the heart and determination of champions. by Colleen Day Inside Sports 189 Football Head Coach Lloyd Carr talks to prospective student athletes and their parents during an official visit. In February, Carr signed one of the nations top recruiting classes for the 2001 season, photo courtesy of Melissa Lippman nameless 2IHOGS Every fall, students, their families, alumni and fans packed the big house to see the mighty Wolver- ines play a time-honored all-American game: foot- ball. Fans screamed and chanted as they saw big time players such as Drew Henson throw winning passes and score touchdowns. The University al- ways stood behind their team, but more in recent years, because their football team was a great one. There were many reasons for a winning football team. Devoted support from fans, superior coach- ing, and top of the line equipment were all variables in the equation to a successful season. But the most important variable that always made the numbers crunch, was, of course, talent. Some superior players may have flocked to the University by themselves, but the school really gave the credit to the football recruiters, who had the talent coming into the University in waves. A recruiter ' s job was not an easy one. Getting a player to represent the Wolverines was not a one- time deal for Bobby Morrison and his recruiting staff. The head recruiter and his assistants fanned out all over the country scouting for new players as early as the student ' sjunioryearin highschool. And the work did not stop there. Many follow-up visits were made, and then trips to the University to see the campus, go to games, and to meet the team, coupled with a lot of convincing from the recruiting staff. Yes, the recruiters were the silent heroes, the k eystone of the University ' s entire athletic depart- ment. They did not get hundreds of thousands of screaming fans rooting for them at football games, and they did not have the hope of turning pro and raking in millions of dollars. The only thing they could do was watch silently as the players they recruited broke new records, scored touchdowns, and rocketed to fame, and pat themselves on the back for a job well done. by Jennie Putvin Junior quarterback Drew Henson releases a pass during the football game against Michigan State.

The 1999-2000 season saw the Wolverine women ' s golf team finish in the top ten in all but one of their regular and fall season tournaments. Included in those top ten finishes were two second place finishes and one fourth place finish. The Wolverines finished the season with their best team score average in three years with a 32 1 . 1 2 per round average, less than a stroke off the program ' s all time best average of 320.68 recorded in the 1995-96 season. The 1 999-2000 team was extremely young, only three upperdass- men were on the squad. The women ' s golf team ' s leading scorer was a first-year student, Kim Benedict. Benedict was the only Wolverine with a scoring average below 80, and she recorded the highest finish, second place at the Hawkeye Invitational, on the team. Benedict entered the 1999-2000 season as a highly touted recruit with an impressive resume. Priortojoining the Wolverines, Benedictwon the Michigan Women ' s Amateur Championship and then the Golf Association of Michigan Championship, as well as the Division I Class A high school championship. Benedict continued her success throughout the 1 999-2000 season. While the youthful Wolverines began slowly, as they gained experience they began to improve greatly. The team closed the season by finishing as runner-up in two of their last three tournaments and turned in a better than expected performance at the Big Ten Championships. The women ' s golf team averaged 304 strokes per 1 8 holes at the Big Ten Championships; more than seventeen strokes better than their season average.

And they were well on their way from the beginning. The icers started the season off strong with an exhibition win over Wilfrid Laurier and followed up with a pair of ties against sixteenth-ranked Colgate and first-ranked North Dakota in the Ice Breaker Tournament. In mid-October, the men clinched a first place title in the Johnson Nissan Classic with victories over Merrimack and Alaska-Anchorage. Their winning streak continued with weekend series wins over both Bowling Green and Miami (Ohio) before suffering their first loss to rival Michigan State, 0-1 . The team evenly split its next two November weekend matchups against Ferris State and Alaska Fairbanks. The Wolverines triumphed over Ferris State 4-1, but lost narrowly the next night with a score of 4-5. They destroyed Alaska Fairbanks 8-0 a week later before falling in the second game, 2-5. After the loss to Alaska, the Wolverines recovered their momentum and outscored both twelfth-ranked Wisconsin and second-ranked Minnesota in the College Hockey Showcase. The icers tallied a win and a tie as they traveled to the Upper Peninsula to face Northern Michigan. In St. Lawrence ' s first visit to Yost Ice Arena since 1 952, the Wolverines claimed a pair of victories, then followed up soon after by prevailing in an exhibition against the U.S. National Team Developmental Program. The next week, the Wolverines suffered a surprising loss to both Michigan Tech and second-ranked Boston College at the Great Lakes Invitational - their first double loss at the GLI since 1 983. They regained their footing, however, with two early January shutouts against Lake Superior State. Amazingly, the LSSU games were the first time since 1 964 that the Wolverines had shutout opponents in back-to-back games, and the first time since 1 927 that they had blanked the same opponent twice in the same weekend. The second LSSU game also marked junior goaltender Josh Blackburn ' s seventh career shutout. Along with their team efforts, several players had commendable individual accomplishments over the season. Senior forward Josh Langfeld and junior defenseman Jeff Jillson received CCHA Player of the Week honors for their part in the team ' s pair of wins over Bowling Green, as did sophomore forward Mike Cammalleri for his role in the series against Northern Michigan in early December. Sophomore forward Andy Hilbert and freshman defenseman Mike Komisarek were both chosen for the 2001 U.S. National Junior Team, while Cammalleri was picked for the Canadian National Junior Team. Both teams competed in the 2001 International Ice Hockey Federation World Junior Championship in Moscow in late December 2000 and early January 2001 . As of early January, Hilbert led the team in goals and assists with 16 and 21, respectively. Cammalleri was close behind with 13 goals and 18 assists. Hilbert tallied the first hat trick of his career in the December 9 win over St. Lawrence. For the 1 7th season, the team was under the direction of Head Coach Red Berenson, the 1 5th winningest coach in NCAA history. He was assisted by Assistant Head Coach Mel Pearson and Assistant Coach Billy Powers. Senior forward Geoff Koch was team captain, while senior forward Scott Matzka and senior defenseman Dave Huntzicker filled the assistant captain roles. The remainder of the Wolverine icers ' schedule promised fierce competition, with matchups against high-ranked Western Michigan and rivals Ohio State and Michigan State.

The squad of 28 returned 21 letter-winners from the previous season ' s Big Ten Conference championship team. The team also welcomed six freshmen, who made an important impact with their contribu- tions. Returning to coach were mainstays Jon Urbanchek and Dick Kimball, as well as assistants Eric Namesnik, Wonkee Moon, and Jon Arndt. Senior Scott Werner, who specialized in the breaststroke and the individual medley events, captained the team. Also making a major impact was senior Chris Thompson, who represented the University and the United States at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, Australia. There, he captured a bronze medal in the 1 ,500-meter freestyle. Carlos Castillo and Mike O ' Connor also offered their senior leadership throughout the season in the diving and dis- tance events, respectively. Other key contributors were Eric Wilson, Dan Ketchum, and Jason Coben, but all will attest that the training efforts of the entire squad defined the success in the pool. Junior Jason Mallory declared, " We train harder than anyone else in the nation, and it gives us a mental edge when competing. " Eric Namesnik, attesting to the tradition of hard work for the Wolverine competitors, explained, " Michigan alums were abound at the 2000 Olympics, representing five different countries and claiming five medals. " Jon Urbanchek had headed the University swimming team for eighteen seasons and was widely regarded as one of the finest coaches in the sport. " Jon is like a father to us here at school. He is a stubborn old man who has been there, done that, and knows how to do it all again, " proclaimed student-assistant coach Jon Arndt, whose active participation with the team had been cut short by shoulder surgeries. Urbanchek ' s merits include a national championship for the Wolverines in 1 995, a year in which he was also awarded the Coach of the Year award from both the NCAA and the American Swimming Coaches Association. Urbanchek won national championships actively during his tenure as a swimmer, participating in the University ' s 1958, 1959, and 1961 titles. He has also assisted on the Olympic coaching staff for the past five American teams, a span of twenty years. " We go beyond NCAA swimming. We promote international swimming, " stressed Urbanchek. His tradition of excellence continues to contribute to Wolverine success. Dick Kimball, the head diving coach, entered his 42nd season with the University this year. He was a member of the International Swimming Hall of Fame and the Michigan Athletic Hall of Honor. While attending the University, Kimball won two national diving titles while being a part of three NCAA championship teams, in 1 957, 1 958, and 1 959. After graduating, he achieved the 1 963 World ' s Professional Diving Championship title and was runner-up at the 1 977 World Acrobatic Diving Championships. As coach of the men ' s diving team, he has earned Diving Coach of the Year honors from the NCAA in 1 984 and the Big Ten Conference in 1 990. Kimball ' s training programs produced numerous Olympic athletes, including four gold medal winners.

Based out of Canham Natatorium, the women ' s team showcased 34 members. Among them were six seniors, each earning four varsity letters during their careers here: Jennifer Arndt, Amanda Crews, Jennifer | Crisman, Theresa DeSitter, Laura Sadler and Melissa Sugar. Jim Richardson directed the swimming unit and Dick Kimball led the divers. Assistant coach Stefanie Kerska offered her expertise for a third straight season and Damion Dennis joined the coaching staff for the first time. The women of Michigan maintained a legacy of excellence in both scholastic and international competition. Eight Wolverines competed for a spot on the American Olympic team. Freshman Samantha Arsenault not only qualified, but also proceeded to lead the USA to gold in the 800-meter freestyle relay, setting an Olympic record. Over the past ten years, the women ' s team had consistently finished in the NCAA top ten. Big Ten championships are practically expected, so the squad had great expectations to live up to. " The team is coming together with each practice and meet and we hope to win back the Big Ten title come February, " said senior Crisman at the beginning of the season. Jim Richardson coached his 16th season with the women swimmers. Under his direction, the Wolverines captured the Big Ten title eleven consecutive times during a span referred to as the Decade of Dominance. Richardson consistently guided his teams to NCAA National Championship and U.S. National Championship meets. In 1995, the University finished second at the NCAA National Championship meet to become the first school other than Texas, Florida, or Stanford to place in the top three. Richardson was appointed NCAA Swimming Coach of the Year in 1993 and 1995. He coached numerous individuals to national championships, and with the constant work rate of the talented group, that tally was sure to grow. For the 27th time, Dick Kimball took the reins of the women ' s diving team. His name was synonymous with the sport at the University, as he was a mainstay as a leader as well as a mentor for his athletes. Kimball was selected as the NCAA Women ' s Diving Coach of the Year in 1984 and 1988, and he accumulated Big Ten diving championships as dynamically as his counterpart Richardson. Kimball had been an active part of Michigan diving since his competitive days in 1957-1959.

Robinson broke his previous career high of seven rebounds with nine boards against Indiana, photo by Mike Cutri iMen ' s Basketball Striving to Meet Expectations The men ' s basketball team faced a tough task during the season: living up to the high expectations of any University squad amidst an ever-competitive Big Ten Conference. Head coach Brian Ellerbe inherited the program several years ago with the under- achieving Fab Five still fresh in the minds of fans. While he, assistant coaches Scott Trost, Kurtis Townsend, Terence Greene, and Direc- tor of Basketball Operations Tom Sorboro signed some of the country ' s elite recruiting classes, drawing the most out of the inexperienced young players proved to be a difficult task. Sophomore LaVell Blanchard led the team into the season as the returning scoring and rebounding leader. Highly recruited out of Ann Arbor ' s Pioneer High School, he was Michigan ' s most consis- tent bright spot. Senior Josh Asselin was an essential figure on the court and in the locker room because of his experience and leadership qualities. The team ' s sole four letter-winner was a mentor to the team ' s many young players. Other returning mem- bers to the squad were juniors Herb Gibson, Leon Jones, Chris Young, Rotolu Adebiyi, and sophomore Gavin Groninger. Bernard Robinson Jr. made the largest contribution as a fresh- man, usually trailing only Blanchard in point and rebound totals. Redshirt freshman Josh Moore, a transfer from Rutgers University, also collected minutes for the young team. At seven feet two inches, the coaching staff believed that he would continue to develop his game, becoming an increasingly noticeable frontcourt threat. Ellerbe ' s freshman class also included guards Maurice Searight and Avery Queen and forward Colin Dill. These players saw considerable minutes due to both their promise and the shallow composition of the team. Last year ' s captain, Brandon Smith, transferred to a smaller school in California to assume a greater offensive role and hopefully draw notice from NBA scouts. The former fan-favorite Jamal Crawford, after playing only 17 collegiate games, was selected by the Chicago Bulls in the 2000 NBA draft. Starting point guard Kevin Gaines left the team due to disciplinary reasons.

The previous season left the team with numerous school records and groundbreaking accomplish- ments that set a precedent for future squads. Playing their home games in Crisler Arena, the Wolverines finished the 1 999-2000 season ranked 25th in the Associated Press Poll, the first time the University had appeared in the prestigious listing. Head coach Sue Guevara coached her fifth season and brought an impressive 74- 41 lifetime record to the sidelines, the highest winning percent- age in program history. She looked to repeat last year ' s honor of Big Ten Coach of the Year, as the Wolverines ' second place finish in a competitive conference earned much respect. Joining Guevara at the helm were assistant coaches Yvette Harris, Ron Mott, and Eileen Shea. The women sported a talented and experienced backcourt duo of senior Anne Thorius and junior Alayne Ingram. For the third straight season, the pair started for Michigan as the team ' s distributors while contributing considerably to the offense. Thorius averaged 9.6 points per game in the previous season; Ingram poured in 12.4 per contest. Throughout their careers, the two have made over 160 three point baskets. Thorius was awarded Media All-Big Ten Honorable Mention and appointed to the Coaches All-Big Ten second team. Her perseverance was illus- trated by her consistency, as she missed only one game in three seasons of play. Junior forward Raina Goodlow figured to make another impact for the team during the year, returning with averages of just under 1 points and 5 rebounds per game. The team counted on her consistency, as she shot over 50% from the field. Guard forward Heather Oesterle and center LeeAnn Bies accompanied Goodlow in the frontcourt. The pair combined to average 18.1 points and 8.7 rebounds in the 2000 season. Oesterle traveled abroad with the Big Ten All Star Tour team this past summer, playing exhibitions in Austria, Slovakia and Hungary. Augmenting the talented group of starters was a fine corps of role players. Senior Katie Dykhouse, a four letter winner, brought leadership and experience to the locker room and on the court. Sophomore guard Infini Robinson also figured to contribute to the Wolverines both offensively and defensively. Rounding out the roster were newcomers Susana Jara, Michaela Leary, Christie Schumacher, Stephanie Gandy and Jennifer Smith.

Ron Warhurst, head coach of the cross-country team for 26 seasons and assistant coach of track and field, was named head coach of the track and field team for the 2000 season. After previous head coach Jack Harvey retired, it was only natural that Warhurst would take his place. Warhurst fit easily into the head coach position, and was consid- ered one of the top cross-country coaches in the nation, the most successful in the University ' s history, and having been with the team since 1974 as assistant coach. Warhurst fit easily into the head coach position. With Warhurst at the helm the team ran a great season that ended with an 8th place finish in the Big Ten Outdoor Champi- onship and two qualifiers for the NCAA Outdoor Championship. Strong performances in the Big Ten Championship were given by junior pole-vaulter Charles Dewildt with a mark of 17-1 1 2, senior long distance runner Mike Wisniewski with a win in the 10,000-meter run, and sophomore sprinter Ike Okenwa with a win in the 200-meter dash and 5th place in the 100-meter dash. Hurdlers Josh Sellers, junior, and sophomore Derek Applewhite also helped boost the team with their well-run races. In the NCAA Outdoor Championship four Michigan runners were in contention, Wisniewski and Okenwa for the men and senior Brand! Bentley and junior Kate Clifford for the women. What ended up being the University ' s strongest showing at the NCAA Championship, Wisniewski placed 1 3th in the 1 0,000-meter run. Only 2 1 of a second separated Wisniewski and the 8th place finisher. Okenwa ran in the 100-meter dash and placed 7th in the quarterfinals but did not qualify for the semifinal heats. The University sent two runners to the NCAA Indoor Championship; senior distance runner Steve Lawrence and senior distance runner Jay Cantin. Lawrence placed 5th in the 5,000-meter run and came away with All-American honors. Cantin, who ran in the mile competition, did not qualify for the finals. The women also made an impres- sive showing at the Big Ten Indoor Championship with a 5th place finish. Leading the team was senior middle distance runner Lisa Ouellet with a 1 st place finish in the 800-meter run fol- lowed by junior distance runner Erin White in 3rd.

Forward was one of nine ranked Maize and Blue wrestlers, photo by Jon Hammer Wrestling Grapplina ith Success Senior Otto Olson, the Wolverine ' s co-captain with senior Joe DeGain, and the nation ' s best wrestler at 1 74 pounds had been through more than his fair share of adversity. Olson had dealt with a pair of torn knee ligaments, a serious car accident, and being struck by a car while riding his bike - all between December, 1999 and December, 2000. While it would have been easy for Olson to just admit he had been defeated and quit, living with such a mentality never occurred to Olson or to his Wolverine teammates. Two weeks after being hit by a car and having his shoulder separated, Olson was back on the mat, defeating his Michigan State opponent by fall at 4:52 into the match. After the first 13 meets, Olson had recorded only one loss, despite his injured shoulder. The rest of the Wolverine team followed Olson ' s lead. The tough and dedicated team had wrestlers ranked within the top 20 nationally of every weight class. While Olson was heavily favored to bring the Wolverine ' s first individual national title back to Cliff Keen since 1986, sophomore AJ Grant at 125 pounds, sopho- more Mike Kulczycki at 149 pounds, junior Charles Martelli at 1 65 pounds, and junior heavyweight Matt Brink were all expected to compete for national titles. The Wolverines opened their season in impressive fashion, out of their first 1 3 meets, the Maize and Blue only lost two of them and those were to the third and fourth ranked teams respectively. The Wolverines proved to be one of the most dominant teams in the program ' s history. The team set a new school record at the Wendy ' s Classic by shutting out three straight opponents. The team also dominated the preseason tournaments. The Michigan wrestlers opened the season in impressive fashion at the Eastern Michigan University Open by claiming eight individual championships. At the Eagle open, four wrestlers claimed indivdual titles, and Kulczycki and sophomore Dan Seder became co-champions. Sophomore Katsuhiko Sueda also placed in the Open.

While the team was loaded with experience, the freshmen made a strong impact, photo courtesy of U-M Photo Services The 1 999-2000 men ' s tennis team entered the season as one of the most experienced teams in the Big Ten. The Wolverines returned seven previous letter winners from a team that went 1 6-5 overall and 9-1 in the Big Ten. The team managed to avoid falling victim to its own great expectations by compiling an impressive 16-7 overall record and a 6-4 mark in the Big Ten. The team entered the season ranked 21st in the nation by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association and was the 23rd ranked team in the nation when it was eliminated from the postseason at the NCAA Regional Championship. The Wolverines opened the season by rattling off seven consecutive victories before narrowly falling to Tulane. After facing Tulane, the Wolverines opened the Big Ten season with back to back losses to Minnesota and Illinois. The Wolverines bounced back from their small losing streak by winning seven of their final nine regular season matches. The team entered the Big Ten Championship confident that it could capture the program ' s 37th conference title. The Wolverines have three times as many Big Ten titles as any current school in the conference. However, the team came up just short in their bid to claim the University ' s 37th men ' s tennis Big Ten crown. The team lost in heartbreaking fashion to Illinois and ended up claiming third place in the confer- ence championship. The extremely tight semifinal match between the Wolverines and Illinois saw five of the six singles matches go to three sets with three of those decided by tie- breakers (Illinois won two of the tie-breakers). Despite a third place finish at the Big Ten Championships, for the third consecutive year the team was selected to compete in the 64 team field of the NCAA National Champion- ships. After rolling over Georgia State in the first round, the Wolverine ' s season was ended by 1 1th ranked Texas Christian. While the Wolverine ' s season was not truly magical, it was successful. The team earned th e tennis program its 900th dual meet victory and maintained a consistent presence in the top 25.

Challenging Season The women ' s tennis team went into the 2000 season intent on winning, armed with their 3-0 home opener record at the Varsity Tennis Center and 19-6 record in home openers overall. January ' s first game was no exception, as the women ' s team sparked their season with a 5-2 win over DePaul. The women continued their series of wins through- out January and into early February, triumphing over Western Michigan, Yale and North Carolina State. In mid-February, the team seemed to lose ground and was unable to rekindle the string of successes they experienced at the start of the season. Throughout the following months, though, they successfully pulled ahead of San Diego State, Michigan State, Marquette and Wisconsin. They had a mixed finish to their regular season, with a 6-1 win over Penn State and a 1-4 loss to Ohio State. In the Big Ten Conference Championship, hosted by the Wolverines at the Varsity Tennis Center, the team defeated Wisconsin to advance to the quarterfinals, but ended up tying for fifth after another loss to 22nd ranked Ohio State. The 2000 season marked the end of an era for several team members - namely, seniors Brooke Hart, Danielle Lund and Erryn Weggenman, all of whom proved extremely valuable to the team. In her final season, Hart was selected for the All-Big Ten Confer- ence team for the second time in her career. She was also named March Big Ten Player of the Month and ultimately Big Ten Sportswoman of the Year. With a singles record of 73-58, she was tied for seventh in the University ' s history and was listed at No. 101 in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association national singles rankings. Lund received the Big Ten Sportswoman of the Year title in 1 999, and both Hart and Lund were present on the University ' s top 10 list of all-time career singles victories. Weggenman was a member of the Academic All-Big Ten Conference in 1 997-98. As freshmen, all three helped the women ' s tennis program earn its first and only Big Ten title in the team ' s 1997 win against Indiana by claiming the fourth, fifth and sixth spots in singles play. This season marked Hart, Lund and Weggenman ' s third visit to the championship games. The women ' s tennis team also had a few new faces, with the addition of freshmen Joanne Musgrove and Jennifer Duprez. Musgrove, a native of Ontario, Canada, was ranked 1 st in girls ' 1 6 ' s singles in her province and 4th nationally in 1 997. Duprez totaled a record of 95-5 throughout her high school seasons and won high school MVP honors for six straight years.

Towards , a Championship The action-packed 1 999-2000 season made it clear that the men ' s gymnastics team was a force to be reckoned with - not only as a group, but also as individuals. The 1999 NCAA champions began their season ranked first in the Collegiate Gymnastics Coaches Association poll. The men placed second in their first tournament, the Windy City Invitational, claiming a record of 5-1 and falling only to Ohio State. They continued their string of wins in matches against Iowa, Illinois-Chicago, Penn State and Minnesota be- fore meeting - and falling to - Ohio State once more. The team claimed a victory over Illinois before partici- pating in the individually-scored Winter Cup Chal- lenge. They then had another six tournament winning streak - triumphing over Massachusetts, Michigan State, Illinois, California-Santa Barbara, Oklahoma and Michigan State again - before heading into the Big Ten Championships in East Lansing. The Wolverines clinched their 14th Big Ten Cham- pionship with huge wins over Ohio State, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan State, Penn State and Minnesota. The team finished a close second to Penn State in the NCAA National Championships, narrowly missing the reclamation of their previous year ' s title. In addition to these team victories, the members had impressive personal achievements to speak of. In early February, junior Justin Toman and freshman Kris Zimmerman advanced to the finals in the Winter Cup Challenge. Toman ultimately placed tenth all-around - first in parallel bars and sixth in floor exercise and still rings - while Zimmerman came in at 34, claiming a seventh place rank on the still rings. Sophomore Scott Vetere claimed the all-around title at the Big Ten Championships, while Toman and Zimmerman shared the NCAA parallel bars title at the same competition. Vetere also was a co-recipient of the University ' s Male Athlete of the Year honors. Zimmerman, Vetere, Toman and sophomore Brad Kenna participated in the John Hancock U.S. Gymnastics Championships in July, which allowed Toman the opportunity to advance to the Olympic trials. And Mike Burns, the team ' s assistant coach, was selected as the 2000 NCAA NACGC National Coach of the Year for the second consecutive year. With the strength of its individual participants, it is not surprising that the team is more solid than ever, both emotionally and physically. " It ' s great, " said Zimmerman of the team dynamics. " It was definitely a big part of the reason that I chose Michigan. When we get in the gym, we all work hard. We push each other.

While the 1999 team took second at the NCAA national Championship meet, the 2000 team placed third behind then number one Alabama and number two Georgia at the Super Six Challenge in Athens, Georgia. The Wolverine gymnasts took the experience they gained from competing on a national stage and proceeded to roll through the regular season competition. The team compiled an impressive 1 9-3 record during the regular season. The only flaws on the team ' s regular season resume came at the hands of then top ranked Georgia and eventual national champion UCLA. After the team ended its regular season with a 197.075- 192.175 pounding of Bowling Green, it proceeded to dominate the Big Ten Championships. The Wolverine gymnasts posted a Big Ten Championship record and University of Michigan school record score of 1 97.850 en route to their eighth Big Ten Cham- pionship in nine years. The Wolverine gymnasts also dominated the individual events, capturing three of the five individual titles at the Big Ten Championships. Senior Sarah Cain brought three more individual conference championships back to Ann Arbor. Cain successfully defended her all-around championship and won the vault and floor exercise as well, bringing her career Big Ten Championship total to six. A pair of freshmen, Cami Singer and Tara Tagliarino, shared the uneven bar championship, each totaling a score of 9.925. Following their record breaking performance at the Big Ten Championships, the team went on to win it ' s second consecutive NCAA Regional Championship. The Regional crown gave the team even more momentum as it headed into the NCAA National Championship meet. The NCAA National Championship proved to be almost an exact rematch of the preseason Super Six in which the Wolverines place third. However, at the NCAA National Championship meet, the team failed to perform up to their ability, scoring their lowest point total of the season at 6th place with 195.725. Despite a disappointing end, members of the team did earn numerous individual honors. Cain was named the University of Michigan Female Athlete of the year and earned both All American and All Academic Big Ten honors.

Dorm living provided many opportunities for roommates to get to know each other. photo by Susan Chalmers It WaS the time that every first-year student was wary of: " going in blind, " start- ing a new school year with a stranger in the dorms. Some students roomed with their friends, and some even got a single, but for most people it was community living, and with that came a new person to share a room with. Everyone had heard the horror stories about people going in blind: the boy who eats all of your food and does not reimburse you a cent, the girl that borrows all of your clothes without asking permission and then returns them stained, etc. Although the roommate topic was often shrouded with fear and concern, in reality, most roommates were really not that bad. There are the extreme situations of the com- pulsive kleptomaniac or the one with suicidal tendencies, but most roommate situations were relatively " normal, " despite disputes over trivial matters like furniture, food and personal space arrangements. As first-year engineering student Amy Smith said, " Me and my roommate haven ' t fought or anything. We are both easygoing people. I would recom- mend that everyone go in blind; you make a new friend. " Roommates were an issue for most people at the University, not just first-year students, whether they lived in dorms, apartments, or houses. " Last year, I lived next to my current roommates and that is how we met each other. We really don ' t have that many prob- lems. People eat each other ' s food [but that ' s okay], " commented junior industrial design major, Brianna Brock. " [The other night] we had this huge pretzel fight. There were mounds of pretzels everywhere. We were pushing couches against doors, trying to get away from the pretzels! " Certainly, roommate strife was bound to occur amongst unique personalities living in close quarters. However, open minds were able to resolve most common conflicts. 222 Roommates arbour Helen Newberry Basement 1st Front Row: Courtney Cagnon, Leigh Frinkle, Melissa Gietzen, Melissa Orban, Hyojeong Kim, Erin Danahyp iofo byAbby Johnson 2nd Floor Front Row: Alana White, Kimberly Kim, Mijin Park, Neha Gupta.

Several students decorated their rooms with their favorite sports para- phernalia, photo by Jessica Germain Upon entering their new homes for the first time, students were faced with nothing but blank walls, and a desk and a bed if they were lucky. However, when people settled in, most rooms seemed to explode with life and reflect the personalities of the students who lived there. " Your room shows the kinds of things that you like and your creative side, " commented Reena Agarwal, a first-year art major. Kristen Donnay, an LSA student, added, " You need to have a lot of posters and pictures on your wall so it doesn ' t look too institutional, and feels more like a home. " While most upperclassmen chose to live in houses and apartments, almost all first-year students were stuck in the dorms, which were hardly the most spacious of living con- ditions. " Lofting your beds is a must. You need the space for couches and stuff. And we wouldn ' t settle for a couch with stains on it either. We found a brand new, really cheap one at Art Van for about two hundred dol- lars, and it only had one tiny rip in it, " boasted Jonathan Schwartz, a first-year en- vironmental policy and behavior major. First- year LSA student Elizabeth Zorza agreed, " You definitely have to shop for deals. I also try to match things at first, but when things don ' t work out, I just go crazy. I have little flower lights all over my room, and pictures of my friends, posters, song lyrics, and pictures my little sister drew for me all over my walls. I like to give other people a sense of my back- ground. " One could walk through the entire Univer- sity and not find one similar room.

Lonely bike tires were found hooked to bike racks scattered around campus, photo byAbby Johnson When University students brought personal items to their dorm or off- campus house, they didn ' t expect those things to be stolen. However, according to the 2000 Campus Safety Handbook, there were 47 instances of burglery in 1999. Matt Cassatta, a sophomore film major, knew first-hand how easy it was for some- thing to nearly get stolen - even when some- one was present in the room. " I have this inflatable chair that ' s made out of innertubes, " said Cassatta. " My roommate was taking a nap with the door unlocked and a kid in my hall tried to take the chair. When my room- mate heard the squeaking and moving of the rafts, he jumped out of his loft and tackled the kid, so we got our chair back. " Although Cassatta admitted locking doors and being more careful in general could have prevented these incidents, he expressed con- cern about the number of DPS patrolling the area over breaks. " If I came home to a dorm full of nothing after Christmas, I ' d be upset, " he added. The residence halls weren ' ttheonly places where theft occurred. Off-campus housing had its own problems, especially during gath- erings when crowd control was difficult. SNRE student Jane Terzibashian, a senior majoring in resource ecology and management, said, " We had a huge party with tons of people. There was a guy in the kitchen during the party. He was standing at our microwave cooking food, so I asked him what he was doing, and he said he lived [in my house]. I played along for a while, the whole time perfectly aware that he was eating my food in my microwave. It took three people to get him out of the house. He still insisted that he lived here. " " Most crime that occurs on our campus involves theft of unattended belongings - often backpacks or gymbags, " said Diane Brown, public information officer for Univer- sity Facilities and Operations. " In residence halls, the issue is no different. Unattended belongings or open, unlocked doors are invit- ing to people with less-than-good intentions.

Having a car on campus made students assume more responsiblity. photo by Jessica Germain Without a car, Meijer runs were nearly impossible, venturing outside of Ann Arbor was improbable and taking the bus was inevi- table. For some, having a car was considered essential. " I usually park my car on the street, and I ' ve been stranded without a parking spot be- fore, " said Melissa Thullen, an elementary education senior. " I ' ve gotten about six tick- ets in Ann Arbor. My father ' s furious because I don ' t pay them. I wait until they send a ticket home, and my dad gets upset but he pays them! " Thullen also had a few car tales involving her housemates. One housemate rarely used her car, and parked it down the street beneath a " no parking " sign obstructed by a tree. She did not know her car had been towed until she went to use it three days later. " On myfirstday in my house, my housemate Lauren left to visit her boyfriend and came back saying that her car had been towed, " said Thullen. " My other housemate, Jane, offered her a ride to the police station. Five minutes later they were back, because Jane ' s car had been towed too! " Jim DelGenio, a junior majoring in film, had racked up three parking tickets in Ann Arbor, but had never gotten his car towed. " I have a car on campus only because I have a guaran- teed parking spot at my fraternity, " he said. 228 Cars On Campus " It ' s awesome; I drive my car all the time. " Both Thullen and DelGenio agreed that despite the difficulties of driving in Ann Arbor, having a car was definitely worth it. " I love my car!, " Thullen said. " I brought it up for the summer and now that I ' m used to having it here, I can ' t do without it. With my car, I can get to Meijer, and I can go home on the weekends if I want. " Like DelGenio and Thullen, many University students were willing to brave the horrors of parking and police just to have a set of wheels. With a car, grocery store runs, avoiding the bus system and temporarily escaping the con- straints of the city were not only a possibility, but also a reality.

Delivery services were often taken advantage of by students living in residence halls; pizza delivery was one of the most popular options. photo by Susan Chalmers 230 Late-Night Food As most University students could attest, late night cravings ran rampant on campus. And thankfully, with the abundance of options around the city, those cravings were not difficult to satisfy. Perhaps the most popular choices for late night food lay in the numerous delivery-friendly restaurants scattered around campus. Jimmy John ' s, one of the most recognizable faces of late night food in Ann Arbor, stayed open until 4 a.m. to accommodate students ' cravings. The well-known pizza places like Pizza House, Cottage Inn and Bell ' s also enjoyed popularity. Other options included the row of small res- taurants on South State Street, housing such joints as Taste of Italy, Mr. Spots, Tubby ' s and Pizza Bob ' s. " I like Mr. Spots, " said Lisa Van Every, an industrial and operations engineering senior. " They ' re yummy, but sometimes they ' re too expensive. I also like Lucky Kitchen, or any pizza place. I ' m not that picky. " Van Every said that she buys most her food at Meijer ' s, but sometimes just feels like order- ing in instead of making dinner. " Ordering in is less work, " she explained. " They bring it right to you. It ' s nice and warm, and you don ' t have to leave your house or put on clothes. " Sophomore film major Jamie McKeown agreed. " Ordering in food is a lot better, " she said. She cited Pizza House and Cottage Inn as among her favorites. McKeown noted that there were draw- backs to ordering in food. " It ' s expensive and it takes a long time to get to your house, " she complained. " And usually they mess up the order. But despite the complications, I ' d still rather order in because the food ' s better than anywhere else. " The residence hall snack bars were another set of options for those students with late food desires. Although the food of the Markley, South Quad, East Quad and Bursley snack bars was not considered as high quality as that of the order-in establishments, the snack bars offered two things Jimmy John ' s and the like did not: immediacy and the ability to purchase food with meal credits. " I visited the North Bar when I lived in Bursley, " said Van Every. " It was good, but it was really, really greasy. After I ate their grilled cheese, I felt like I was going to have a heart attack! " McKeown also had experience with the North Bar. " I thought the snack bar was cool, " she said. " It was open late, even after the cafeteria was closed. It was pretty convenient. I think they could have had a better selection, though. " No matter if students shuffled down to the snack bars to get food or had it brought right to their door, one thing was for certain: a shortage of food establishments was never a problem.

It just makes my day when I look into my mailbox and see that there is a letter waiting for me, " said Ivey Adelman, first-year computer science major. There were many different types of mail that students could receive: letters, notes, cards, flyers, etc, although the most prized mail type was the care package. The most elusive form of mail known to students, care packages have been known to bring people from all over. Said Jennifer Zech, first-year microbiology major, " Care packages make me feel like a princess. It ' s great! I love care packages! " Knowing that your family back home, wher- ever that may be, was thinking of you was one of the best methods of stress relief. Sometimes a little twinge of sadness came with thoughts of home, family and a comfortable bed, and the care package was a great way for family back home to express their love and concern Care packages, along with helping stu- dents remember the best things of home, served another purpose: namely the deliver- ance of such things as clothes, toiletries and food. A care package could not have been a care package without the food. No matter how little students talked with their parents it was always obvious to the adults that the cafeteria food left something to be desired. Moreover, students often craved homemade goodies that were unavailable in the dorm or that they were too lazy to make themselves. Out of pity, parents often sent care packages. " Food is the best part of any care package. I have gotten two packages so far this semes- ter and both times my parents have sent lots of food, " said junior political science major Nicole Muendelein. " There was so much both times that I had to give some of it away.

Residence halls offered many employment opportunities enabling residents to work in the same building where they lived, photo by Naomi Trager 234 Resident Advisors How nice would it be to have a room all to yourself, free room and board, and the power to tell those annoying kids who like to play basketball in the middle of the hall at 3 a.m. to get the hell out of the building? That would be the life. This probably sounds too good to be true, right? Well, it pretty much is. There is a lot more to being an RA then just getting a free room and a little power. There are things like meetings to go to, classes to take, and responsibilities that must be fulfilled. " I really love being an RA. There are of course a few responsibilities that I could do without, though, " said junior psychology ma- jor Shayla Pickett. " For example, we have to go to two meetings a week and we only get to leave to go home three times a semester. It was a real shocker when I realized that I had to ration my time. " One of the major downfalls for some RAs was only being able to leave town three times a semester. In previous years, any weekend was open to go and do what- ever. An RA ' s main job though was to be there for the students, weekdays and weekends. Being there also meant that the door has to be open most of the time so that the students knew they had somewhere to go if they needed someone to talk to or just to hang out. " The reason that I became an RA can be expressed in one word: experience. There are so many experiences that you get as an RA that no one else anywhere would get, " said Rishi Seth, junior economics major. " You learn to interact with so many different types of people, students, staff, etc. " Experience seemed to be the second major reason behind being an RA. The first was to help students. Said graduate student Jennifer Eng, " I like having an influence on other people ' s lives. Being able to h elp others is one of the best parts of being an RA along with gaining skills in leadership, interpersonal relations, and in- creased knowledge. When I come home from a long day and see my residents loving their first year, it reminds me of what my priorities are: to have fun and make the most of my education. " Even though there were a few cons to being an RA, the pros more than made up for them. Making a difference in the life of a student and realizing what really mattered was worth all the time spent going through the interviews, meetings, classes and and time on duty.

With the swipe of a card, students could do laundry or buy a snack at a number of local eateries. photo by Jessica Germain Frantic searches for quarters in order to finish laundry and quick runs to the cash machines in order to grab food on the way to class were entirely avoided by the convenience of Entree Plus. Several students took advantage of the Entree Plus feature offered by the Entree Office. Entree Plus served as a convenient alternative to carrying cash. Students were able to con- dense their wallets by merely carrying their M- Cards. The Entree Plus feature allowed students ' parents to put money on their M-Cards as an easy and safe alternative to forego bank runs at crazy hours of the day and night. " The best thing about Entree Plus is that all I had to do to get it was check a box on a form sent home to me. The amount I checked was then added to my M-Card and put on my student bill. Itisgreat! My parents pay for all of my food and I do not have to worry about having enough cash, " said sopho- more Lisa Leenhouts, pre-med. Versatility was also a large advantage of Entree Plus. It was accessable at laundry facilities in the dorms, copy machines, coffee shops, and restaurants at the Union, League and Pierpont Commons. " Entree Plus is fabulous! Since I ' m always broke and my sorority house does not serve food on weekends, I get lots of use out of it. The only change I would make to Entree Plus would be that I would make it acceptable at bars! That would be a good addition, " said sophomore Kellie Lecznar, pre-law. The option of Entree Plus was used by several students in order to simplify their busy lives. It supplemented dwindling groceriesand unappealing dorm food. 236 Entree Plus East Quad 4th Hayden Front Row: Sachin Nanavati, Julia Sobesky, Kristen Beaumont, Douglas Douma Row 2: Louis Helm, Susan Barnett, Reesa Benkoff, Chaitanya Kejriwal Row 3: Amy Palmer, Sarah Ketvirtis, Adam Tymowski, Jeffrey Krause, Leslie Littler, Artem Lamnin, Charles Richter, William Brouillette, Brittani Brewer, Mark McKinstry, Shant Korkigian photo by Evan Busch 2nd Anderson Front Row: Su Teh, Bethany Clark, Erica Grossman, Stefanie Dioso, Emily Harris Row 2: Benjamin Goldman, Adebisi Alii, Sapna Nagar, Joseph Dudek, Melissa Costello, Stephen Goetz Row 3: Brandon Carter, Ari Hansler, Christopher Amory, Steve Warnick, Jay Klein photo by Grace Wong 3rd Anderson Front Row: Jennifer Johnson, Alana Aaron, Andra Talaska, Crystal Davis, Jesse Kass, Michelle Nicholson, Elizabeth McQueen Row 2: Natalee Rowe, Kristin Zellen, Valerie Des Parois, Scott Watson, George Khoury, Samantha Samarasinha, Elizabeth Lamping, Kevin Stoy, Gregory Grarnann Row 3: Julie Zimmerman, Kristin Schmidt, Kerri Bewick, Christy Hol lar, Wiiliam Campbell, Peter Cecil, Geoffrey Haven, Rebecca Zemans, Alan Campana, Ryan Me Namara, Chad Blackney, Matthew Rose photo by Evan Busch 4th Anderson Front Row: Courtney Sempliner, Alix Sorrell, Mary Kerkorian, Natalie Rivkin, Jessica Kositz, Jason Crum, Catherine McAran, Emily Rudman Row 2: Alexandra Claps, Jennifer Miller, Abby Moeddel, Susan Luth, Nila Ellison, Esther Lee, Jennifer Dombrowski Row 3: Jessica Lutz, Christopher Budnick, Melissa McGivern, Jessica Vanderlan, Joanna Zasloff, Brian Pelloski Row 4: Uchenna Ahanonu, Brian Gougherty, Nari TenKley, Loren Gorosh Row 5: Andrew Harrington, Temujin Nana photo by Grace Wong Front Row: Christyna Torrez, Megan Marod, Amy Wahlfietd, Heather Freeman, Lindsey McCormick, Cara Sandelands, Julia MacEwan, Joseph Le Favi Row 2: Nicholas Wilson, Jessica Hollander, Victoria Shulman, Benjamin Stein, Shefali Kothari, Lauren McCreary, Leslie Ward, Christopher Multa, Row 3: Michael Swiryn, Theresa Ewaid, John Park, Jess Piskor, Blair Parker, Adam Irish, Alexandra Anderson, Frances Reade, Kirnberly Jacobson, David Deeg, Alexander Wolk, Matthew Vanhuffel, Kevin Fosnacht Row 4: Eric Cirnbalik, Christopher Kramer photo by Evan Busch Housing 237 A goldfish gracefully glides around its bowl in an East Quad dorm room. Students living in residence halls were able to keep fish in the dorms rooms this year, photo by Naomi Trager Far from home, some students sought refuge in a furry (or scaly, or feathered) friend. Pets were a regular part of college life for students. For the first time, University Housing al- lowed goldfish to be kept in the dorms this year, not only expanding living options for students residing on campus but also making the dorms feel more like home. " I think fish in the dorms is a great idea, but my boyfriend and his friend, who live in South Quad, had a goldfish and it jumped out of the bowl and then somebody stepped on it, " said junior English major Stephanie Sackellares. Students living in off -campus housing also opened their homes to animals. Some frater- nity houses had dogs or other pets as " mas- cots, " while students living elsewhere off- campus often looked forward to acquiring a pet to share with new roommates. " My friend lives in the apartment next to me and we decided to get a kitten to share. We got it from the Humane Society. I like to cuddle with it, but we mainly use it to try to pick up girls, " said sophomore LSA student Andrew Miller. However, some students, for whatever rea- son, chose not to live with pets while at school. Some students had leases that prohibited pets from living in the dwelling. " My roommate ' s family lives on a farm and so it ' s weird to him to have animals in the house, so I didn ' t even try to suggest getting a pet for our apartment, " said junior psychology major Shan- non Haley. Whatever their pet, whatever reason they had for keeping one, many students enjoyed the company of animals, making college life and living away from home feel more like home. 238 Pets T rl f Quad 3rd Hinsdale Front Row: Irving Washington, Rebecca Mostov, Rosario Long Mendez, Alena Acker, David Caplan, Zachary Schulman, Anand Giridharadas, Margaret Conway, Sage Hales Row 2: Miguel Pineda, Adrianne Davis, Krislina Lewis, Kristen Howard, Teyonna Simpson, Laura Merlo, Ananda Cohen, Abinash Mishra, Jane Fletcher, Christina Berg Row 3: Erica Carlson, Sarah Johnson, Laura Knollenberg, Sarah Tasman, Mayur Chudasarna, William Borden, Elizabeth Ray Row 4: Daniel Trudeau, Susan Harter, Lindsay Alexander, Philip Surles, Washington Irving Row 5: Lauren Marquez, Andrew Taylor-Fabe, Milton John, Sarah Shotwell, Lee Ewing, Elisabeth Lawrence, Carlie Debuysscher Row 6: Paul Neuman, Rebecca George, Cierra Colbert, Kirk Tans, Aaron Vanderhaar photo by Evan Busch 2nd Tyler-Greene Front Row: Katherine Tainsh, Paola Amador, Nate Carsten, Sam Wong, Dalia Oppenheimer, Rachel Kessler, Whitney Elliott, Carol Gray Row 2: Victoria Tunkel, Bradley Dupay, Christopher Kiekintveld, Kathryn Hecker, Andrew Lemarbe, Lisa Moore, Benjamin Rickert photo by Evan Busch 3rd Tyler-Greene Front Row: Rita Aouad, Hannah Fenster, Catherine Groat, Emily Litznerski, Lindsay Fox, Falyne Fry, Michelle Baladi, Anne Szczesny, Lauren Mendelson, Amanda Sardone, Kenneth Kim Row 2: Luis Diaz-Merheb, Ofer Reger, Andrew Wong, Yvonne Perett, Jason Yang, Shoshana Cohen-Fraade, Eric Littler, Kristen Balfour, Mikal Stewart, Dean Joyce Row 3: Paul Biack, Graham Smith, Jared Jeffers, Mark Benton, Stephen Holwerda, Matthew Malecki, Patrick Kim, Shawn Slon, Joel Liimatainen, Matthew Margeson photo by Evan Busch 4th Tyler-Greene Front Row: Brook Wright, Caitlin Smith, Michelle Lieder, Olga Frankstein, Row 2: Avrum Jacobson Katherine Den Bleyker, Nicole Dub, Suzanne Lambert, Kristen Werner, Meera Meerkov, Brian Knoch Row 3: Mario Batalla, Melanie Larson, Mary Jo, Christina Morrow, James Me Lenaghan, Marcia Stabryla, Meredith Raymond, Brian Meek Row 4: Jonah Leach, Logan Dorrell, Seth Koehler, Daniel Aghion, Steven Schostak, Joel Kornblau photo by Evan Busch 2nd Prescott Front Row: Emmanuel Okoro, Jason Harris, Armen Terjimanian, Mike Delmedico, Isaac Robinovitz, Wooshik Shin, Samuel Ross, Tamara Neering, Maria Espinosa Row 2: Moira Birss, lystra Housing 239 1st Mosher Front Row: Knstopher Hammerberg, Robert Hynds, Sean Kienzle, Justin Mitchelson, David Lim, Michael Zimmer, Weon Rhee.

With the NCRB on North Campus and the IM and CCRB on Central Campus, the University provided many venues for students to keep fit. photo by Audra Rowley In an effort to stay fit, students around campus used University resources as well as creating an individual exercise plan to fight the pounds, especially the freshman fifteen that created problems throughout the school year. Tina Pruthyaputtra, a junior movement sci- ence major, attempted to workout almost every day for about one to two hours in the IM building a location she chose because of conve- nience, she spent most of her time in the gym working on treadmills and bikes but tried to spend at least four days a week weightlifting. Exercise is beneficial to live a longer life, " she said. " I think it ' s really important to work out as often as you can for health reasons. When you get older, it gets a lot harder to get yourself out of bed and actually go do something. " Third year law student Karun Naga agreed. " It ' s nice to break the mold of the day, some- thing to change the pace of studying because you spend the whole day going to class and most of the evening studying too. So it ' s im- portant to find a way to take the frustration out and get back on that mental edge. " The CCRB was also a popular place stu- dents utilized to keep in shape. " I try to go as often as I can. It ' s really nice having something in the Hill area where I can keep the freshman fifteen off, " said first-year political science major Monica Regan, who spent time working out on stairmaster machines as well as an addi- tional muscletoning routine of sit-ups and weights. " It ' s a good place to socialize and sort of take a break from homework too. " Like the CCRB, the NCRB provided and oppor- tunity for students living on North campus to stay fit. First-year sociology major Tamara Braun took advantage of the pool by doing about twenty laps per day. " It ' s so important to find something you enjoy doing or else you won ' t keep up with it. I love swimming every day and it feels odd when I don ' t.

Older residence halls experienced more maintenance requests than newer ones due to the aging facilities. The Housing Department offered a 24- hour " Fix-it " hotline for residents to submit repair requests, photo by Susan Chalmers Residence halls became home away from home for students electing to live there for eight months. In order to create a welcoming, " home-like " environment, resi- dence halls were often well-maintained and well-run. However, a few students experi- enced the occasional disaster that sent resi- dents into a frenzy. Although West Quad has fire walls built in between rooms in order to prevent fires from spreading, it is the only residence hall with this safety feature. Fire provided a problem for a select few residents, but the consquences were often very traumatic. " Last year I had a friend in South Quad whose room caught on fire. She had a Menorah on the television with paper towel under it. The paper towel caught on fire and then spread. It was a two week-long disaster for her; she was super-stressed out and could not attend classes or focus on any of her school work, " said sophomore political science major Erin Mote. Sometimes the most innocent of tasks turned to a disaster without students realizing the consquences of their actions until it was too late. " My friend lived in West Quad last year. Her roommate left her humidifier on over Christmas vacation. When she returned back to West Quad after vacation all of her windows were broken and there was mold on everything in her room. My friend didn ' t know what to do so she called Fix-It. They replaced the window, but her room smelled like mold for the rest of the year, " said sophomore engineering major Georgette Obeidi. Practical jokes also proved to be disasterous for several students by creating chaos in their daily lives. " After the first snowfall of the year, West Quad stole all of the furniture from South Quad. There is an annual tradition betweent the two dorms. Unfortunately West Quad won this year, " said sophomore biological psychology major Megan Scuderi. 242 Dorm Disasters Jordan 5th Center A Front Row: Molly Van Appledorn, Sonia Sahney, Tiffany Taylor, Michelle Woloszyn, Umpai Poopat, Aimee Conslantine, Manjing Wong, Erin Webster Row 2: Kathryn Hentkowski, Anne Halfmann, Victoria Chien, Lynne Gratz, Krista Lupinetti, Emily Kesek, Andrea Schultz Row 3: Virginia Tanis, Lauren Clark, Latrice Willis, Brianna Thompson, Melanie Simmons, Yee Phu, Stacey Richardson photo by Abby Johnson 5th Center B Front Row: Christy Schroeder, Yanhang Ma, Melissa Goris, Tina Son, Rachel Warnick, Ami Bhatt, Susan Reading, Lisa Schaldenbrand, Julie Quasarano, Anna Laroy Row 2: Nicole Larocca, Kelly Burgess, Tamar Gontovnik, Melissa Chase, Lindsey Csonka, Megan Flynn, Jillian Centanni, Jillian Murphy, Lindsay Harding, Katie Herta Row 3: Kaleena Settlemyre, Martha Lofgren, Myra Wilder, Vanessa Byrwa, Meredith Hasse, Lani Koczara, Sara Tunstall, Jennifer Reiners, Sarah Ray Photo by Abby Johnson 4th Jordan Center Front Row: Kenneth Kuklock, Johnathan Childs, David Lee, Sheldon Peters, Peter Roach, Jonathan Woodard, Jeffery Hill, Melissa Balun Row 2: Peter Huff, Jason Roth, Babawole Akin- Aina, Pauljude Valencia, Christopher Sutler, Nicholas Reidenbach, Jordan Propper, Curtis Hiller photo by Abby Johnson 4th Jordan End Front Row: Katherine Knox, Julie Humphries, Sarah Thompson, Krista Luli, Julie Swistak Row 2: Jennifer Prins, Erica Wollerman, Lisa Dewaelsche, Tiffany Torres, Andrea Veryser, Jane Feddes Row 3: Carolyn Ballintine, Michelle Maturen, Sarah Scherdt, Alyssa Tharrett, Erin Byrne photo by Abby Johnson 5th Jordan End Front Row: Morgan Johnson, Carolyn Wineland, Jennifer Babst, Martha Yocum, Kristal Vardaman, Sara Kasun, Jodi Miller, Kelly Carr, Carrie Graham Row 2: Emily Mitchell, Andrea Dorsten, Anastasia Meadows, Preetha lyengar, Rachel Colimo, Tiffany Buckley, Kara Jacobs, Alexis Marz, Nora Fitzgerald, Elizabeth Rourke, Melanie Zepick Row 3: Dayna Leplatte, Bethany Bezak, Natalie Pollman, Ebonie Byoden, Kate Longcore, Sarah Zakaria, Margaret Dinner, Francesca Vitale, Julie Ricks photo by Abby Johnson Housing 243 Bursley 2nd Sanford Front Row: Kathleen Krause, Chereese Foster, Gretchen Hilburger, Elizabeth Zorza, Tamara Braun, Shaina Taelman Row 2: Rebecca Fairweather , Reshma Shah, Gwendolyn Suiter, Anne Vallone, Brandee Clark photo by Evan Busch Waiting for the bus to depart from the stop, students anticipate returning back to their dorm rooms. The Bursley Baits bus served as the main form of trans- portation for students living on North Campus, photo by Audra Rowley To some the bus system was the biggest pain in the butt on campus, even though it may have been their primary means of transportation. There were many different opinions about the buses at the University but one thing was clear, no matter how many people complained riding the buses was inevitable for some. Jeffrey Parker, a first-year mechanical engineer- ing student said, " Without the buses my one hour programming class on North Campus would end up being a three hour trip because it would take forever to walk there and back. The buses turn what could be at least a half-hour walk into a ten minute bus ride. " For all those students who had class on North Campus and lived on Central or vice versa, the bus system was a necessity. Not only did 244 Commuting the buses provide a mode of transportation but they also provided a basis for story telling and conversation. Sophomore Lisa Kamat, an engineering stu- dent, said, " Some of the best stories I know have come from the bus. One time there was this group of kids who were riding the bus. This guy got up before the bus stopped, and started walking towards the door. One of the little boys saw him do this so he got up too. He didn ' t realize though that he would keep moving forward when the bus stopped. The look on his face was so priceless when the bus stopped ! He caught himself though so he didn ' t fall or any- thing but you could totally tell that he was really shocked that he just kept moving when the bus stopped. " For the most part students seemed to be pretty happy with the bus system, and the stories that could be collected from a ride, but there were a few that saw room for some big time improvement. First year engineering student Ja- son Rice said, " The buses are such a pain. For the most part they are on time but the schedule is kind of screwy and the drivers aren ' t the best. Also, there needs to be a few more stops outside of the center of central campus. There are very few outside of the C.C. Little - Student Union area.

Some landlords were respectful of students ' needs while others had no consideration for their tenants, photo by Abby Johnson For some University students, the disadvantages of residence halls were just too much to bear. But in their search for off- campus housing and apartments, these stu- dents discovered landlords - a prospect much worse than just the inedible food and tiny rooms of the dorms. Divya Jain, a junior majoring in biology and economics, had plenty to say about the sub- ject. When she arrived at her new apartment, there was a half-full keg in the closet, pizza smeared on the walls and bananas rotting in the cabinets. " Our landlord is cheap, and she was rude to my parents, " Jain said angrily. " Our apartment was completely trashed when we got there, and it took a lot of coaxing and the presence of a lawyer to get our landlord to clean it up. It was ridiculous. " Jain was definitely not up for a repeat performance for the 2001-2002 school year. " Last year, my landlord rocked, " she said. " He ' s giving us an apartment next year, so we ' re going back to him. " Sophomore art history major Molly Maxwell also experienced problems with her landlord. " My ceiling fell in the first week of school, " she said. " It took a week for that to get fixed. And right now, my room is freezing! " LSAfirst-yearstudentlrsanShuttari ' sencoun- ters with his landlord were not quite as extreme as Maxwell and Jain ' s, but problematic none the less. " Our landlord is putting our apartment up for sale and we didn ' t know about this when we first rented out the place, " he said. " We were thinking about staying here for four years, and now we have to decide where we ' re going to go, because more than likely, the apartment ' s going to be gone in a year. I wish he would have told me back in September when I took the apart- ment. " Although there were most likely fair, reason- able landlords that existed in Ann Arbor, most students agreed that those type of landlords were hard to find. Because of this, the stereo- types of greedy, lazy and dishonest landlords in the city lived on. 246 Landlords 6th Bartlett Front Row: Anne Byrne, Marisa Dickmeyer, Courtney Larson, Diana Ganz, (Catherine Preston, Amanda Kading, Dana Brody, Rachel Sigsbey, Alexandria Cadotle Row 2: Annissa Spratt, Alicia Hall, Radha Shah, Morgan Kuntze, Andrea Carone, Sarah Kehlenbeck, Nicole Naum, Kati Britt, Mary Dardarian, Katie Borer, Kristin Wolff, Sarah Buckley, Christina Davidson Row 3: Laura McCreary, Jessica Bleha, Jessica Bucks, Alaina O ' Connor, Maybelle Yeurn, Mona Patel, Lauren Hooper, Archana Raui, Melissa Byrnes, Colleen White, Aqua-Raven Davis photo by Evan Busch 7th Bartlett Front Row: Brittany Chase, Alana Draper, Lynn Chau, Karon Sanderson, Kara Dupuy, Myrna Vaca Row 2: Amy Jaick, Amy Berger, Alyson Lobert, Olivia Martin, Barbara Riso, Katherine Schwartz, Clare Schaldenbrand, Jennifer Karr, Courtney Aston Row 3: Emily Senk, Cheryl Hark, Kelly Hach, Ltndsay Regnery, Sangeetha Lakshminarayanan, Erica Velasco, Trad Kern photo by Evan Busch 2nd Hamilton , , , Yung- Hsin Ho, Timothy Krohn, Kush Gulati, Shaun Tan, Da Szewczyk Row 3: Tomas Sirgedas, Rajendra Gorrepati, Stephen Karamon, Daniel Dault, Daniel Kurikesu, Brandon Weiner, Richard Nobbe, Marc Wong photo by Evan Busch 3rd and 4th Hamilton Front Row: Amy Greschaw, Heather Truesdall, John Rhyu, Timothy Wang, Connel Pinto Row 2: Dana Barowsky, Gina Fraternali, Casey Harrity, Erica Howard, Brian Aspinali, Daniel Cook, Harvard Parker, Peter Zora, Jason Milliner photo by Evan Busch 5th Hamilton Front Row: James Cotton, Carrie Thorson, Tony Muka, Benjamin Miller, Bethany Shapland, Robert Bartz Row 2: Erik Domino, Adam Forney, Alex Wagner, John Choike, Travis Cossairt, Howard Ng, Nathaniel Kuhn, Jonathan Moniaci photo by Evan Busch Housing 247 Bursley 3Y COLLEEN JAY 1st Rotvig Front Row: Nicholas Ferrerira, Joel Coplen, Mark Majewski, Rajat Shrivastava, Travis Zdeb, Ben Heymer, Darrin Tracy Row 2: Matthew Forsythe, Justin Darish, Ven Kolli, Dae Young Jeong, Swarup Misra, Aron Gladden, Gregory Graves, Ryan DeBolski, Jonathan Young, Scott Buchbinder photo by Evan Busch Taking his clothes from the dryer, a student makes sure they are dry. Doing laundry was a chore that most students did as infrequently as possible, photo by Mike Cutri. The search for a house or an apartment may begin as early as September for some students on campus. The process of selecting the perfect living environment had many factors for stu- dents, such as location and pricing. After the roommates found their special place among the streets of Ann Arbor, they began the hardest part of their journey; moving in and living together in peace and harmony. Some students might have gotten their first taste at cleaning a house or an apartment when their sloppy roommate from freshman year left all of their unwashed dishes in the sink. With differing schedules, one refrigerator and no dishwasher, the house may have come to a resolution that none of their parents dreamed possible. A chore list. Nicole Kacor, a junior English major said, " We made a chore list to delegate different responsibilities. The house became messy with six active girls. " However, this method of organized team- work was not prevalent among most students. Junior political science major Jon Lui exclaimed as he stepped over an old pizza box, " When the mold in the showers starts to clog the drain, and the flies are definitely breeding and fester- ing in the sink and the trash bags, we know we have at least a week before it starts to get really bad. It ' s no more fun and games when you get to college, it ' s all about cleanliness. " With a left-over keg blocking the doorway and a mountain of dishes touching the ceiling, junior organizational studies major Erica Antoncew provided her method of cleanliness. " When my room gets too messy, I push every- thing under the bed. " Whether the student claimed to be a glori- fied clean freak or as messy as a pig, the houses and apartments on campus all had their own unique charm. 248 Chores arban Row 3: Craig Williams, Daniel Yowell, Brian Ver rjuna Reddy, Michael Swayze, Michael Carroll, Bradley B hnfn hv Fvan Rn .rh 3rd Rotvig Front Row: James Meulendyke, Benjamin Dubid, Nathan Zamarson, Thaddeus Hart, Charles Cox, Brian Buck, Jason Lewkowicz, Steve Berg Row 2: Ross MacKenzie, Dan Coppens, Tin Chak Yu, Everett Wong, Chris Cassidy, Duncan Hromadka, Matthew Barren, Kwarne Ofori Row 3: Nema Sayadiam, Jesse Villanueva, Elliott Walter, Dave Stajiniger, Josh Meyer, Akhil Bansal, John Baun, Dan Green, Charles Grumbine, Davis Hwang photo by Evan Busch 4th Rotvig First Row: Tanille Brooks, Nicholas Solon, Kelly Sulick, Sara Hocking, Sarah Smart, Lauryn Quinn, Courtney Lewis, Carrie Marshall Row 2: Chuan Yao Cheng, Jirapat Jirasirikul, Doug Urquhart, Kathryn Thomas, Melissa Hedlund, Paul Maandig, HaeJin Lee, Rebecca Ramsey, Lauren Yael Leyser, Emily Schwartz Row 3: Artem Dmytrenw, Sooho Lee, Karl Meisterheirn, Matt MeKeoun, Matthew Oblak, Adam Tury, Dana Spindler, Dave Noy photo by Evan Busch 1st Van Hoosen Front Row: Morgan Cornell, Steve Palazzolo, Eric Kraft, Jason Hsu, John Scatamacchia, Jason Siegel, Ted Way, Henry Shih, Sharat Naik Row 2: Josh Rovey, Edward Keogh, Sachin Sabnis, Geoff Mayers, Rob Goodspeed, Adebisi Adewunmi, Jason Cheng, Brian Puchaia, Herman Kwong, Robert Beier Row 3: Justin Sears, Andy Thiel, Travis Hobria, Adam van Staveren, Michael Work, Kyle Herrity, Andrew Lanoix, Chrts Drumgoole, Derek Herbert, Marco Fujimoto, Han Lev photo by Evan Busch Front Row: Julie Mattzman, Michele Persin, Jacqueline Manifold, Ami Thekdi, Susan Chalmers, Alice Knoebel, Sarah Kwon Row 2: Kathleen Jordan, Elishae Johnson, Marcy Urbance, Layla Black, Ashley Gearherdt, Caroline Purceil, Heejung Hong, Sara Heidenescher Row 3: Jessica Hensley, Jill Ho, Jenifer Shreve, Jennifer Johnson, Kimberly Lemieux, Joi Thomas, Julia Lehning, Krystal Smith, Anna Falkowska photo by Evan Busch .thehou ;-- ' - ' Housing 249 BY ALYSSA ROSEN Working together, two students try to solve a difficult problem. Study lounges could be found in all residence halls, providing students with convenient places to do their work. photo by Susan Chalmers University housing had a great deal to offer students: a quick way to make friends, easy access to food, cleaning services, in house advi- sors. Yet as everyone who went through the experience of living in a dorm would attest, it was necessary to surrender many of the com- forts of home in exchange for these conve- niences. One of the most potent concerns about dorm life was the issue of where to study. Between the small desks overwhelmed by large computers, roommates who liked TV and neighbors with loud stereos, students found it hard to concentrate in the dorm rooms. The logical solution for many students was to find a favorite study spot among one of the many to which veterans migrated. While some found home in nearby dorm lounges, many were forced to brave the weather and relocate elsewhere on campus. Coffee shops were often a favorite haven - they offered a relaxing and pleasant atmosphere with low-level background noise and many opportunities for breaks to chat with friends. Y et coffee shop studying was not for the distractible. During midterms and finals these popular spots got so flooded by students with their heads in books, it was hard to find a place to sit and even harder to keep one ' s mind from wandering. By far the most popular places to study were campus libraries, yet even these offered varying degrees of social activity. Students could choose between the bustling Under- graduate Library, quieter reading rooms in the Graduate Library and Union Study Lounge and the ever-popular, virtually silent Law Library. LSA junior Jennifer Waterbury found her niche in the Law Library. " I loved to study in the Law Quad because it was just so beautiful there! And in the springtime the view of architecture in the Quad was gorgeous. " Of course, dis- tance was always a key factor in deciding study location. During finals the Law Library and Union Lounge were teeming with South Quad and West Quad residents who would not en- dure the cold, long walk to the Undergraduate Library for anything - not even that favorite seat by the window. 250 Studying 3rd Van Hoosen Front Row: Leslie Taylof, Eva Tse, Chung-Nga Janice Kwan, Kaye Guidugli, Annie Hagar, Rachel Easley, Julia Shershavin Row 2: Elissa Myers, Lisa Edwards, Melissa Storck, Nicole Eichenberg, Jessica Barker, Anna Bobinsky, Camiile Wilson, Julie Kirk, Shaili Jain Row 3: Shana Fu, Erica Balkurn, Loni Benkert, April Ucci, Melissa Czuprenski, Mart Howe, Alissia Kass, Kate Queram photo by Evan Busch 4th Van Hoosen Front Row: Eddie Duchateler, Andy Crabtree, David Lam, Thanh Pham, Angela Prange, Alysia Kleese, Nicole Milos, Amy Lifshitz Row 2: James McGinnis, Nate Payne, Michael Romano, Daniel Warren, Adriaan Zuiderweg, John Pulker, Nathan Hall, Ntcole Durham photo by Evan Busch 4th Douglas Front Row: Christopher Van Ittersum, Ky!e O ' neill, Ross Wiltshire- Gomez, Joshua Breitzer, Brian Druchniak, Jake Crawford, Pangjen Liu Row 2: Zubm Kapadia, Kyle Winters, Scott Showalter, Benjamin Chess, Aditya Prasad, Eric Shieh, Christopher Lees, Matthew Ng Row 3: Andy Chong Sam, Robert Chapin, Robb Nannini, Chia Hung Chu, Patrick Brown, Todd Davis, Joshua Hover, Christopher Perpich Row 4: Michael Rodehorst, Jeffrey Gregory, Joshua Beach, Andrew Strobe, Michael Garbacik, Ahmir Rashid, Bradley Carroll, Eric Day photo by Evan Busch 5th Douglas Front Row: Omari Jackson, Matthew Brasic, Dave Ostreicher, Tim Mabin, Brian Kerr, Nathan Picotte, Winthrop Watts Row 2: Jeff Snyder, Tajuan Jones, Steven Chang, Chin-Kuan Wang, Chris Metcalf, Pramod Kakarala, Tom Lin, Paul Denning, Sang Hoon Lee, Daryl Stephens, Bryan Bielawski Row 3: Kenny Kronstadt, Michael Ferguson, Vince Waianze, Elwood Davis, Scott Seaman, Michael Adamisin, Brent Heswood, Patrick Durham, Matt Rieger, Michael Shea, Giancarlo Valle, Michael Katelman, Thomas Feisel photo by Evan Busch 6th Douglas Front Row: Darren Keese, Adam Malorance, Leonard Choon Joo Lee, Issei Sugimoto, Dan Wilansky, Carl Sepura Row 2: Kevin Robitaille, Marcus Wilson, Simeon Dwyer, David Licht, David Mollo-Christensen, Wyatt Istvan-Mitchell, Paul Ly, John Downer photo by Evan Busch Housing 251 Bursley 7th Douglas Front Row: Saumil Shah, Matt Hammer, Aurnab Biswas, Jeff Allotta, Brittan Gill, Tou Fue Thao Row 2: Pranau Rungta, Benny Assefa, Russell Del Toro, Ben Burshad, Christopher Walters, John Schreiner, Ken-ichi Yoshida, Matthew Kalasho Row 3: l-Ting Lai, Abhimanyu Thackersey, Cesay Fors, Brent Frey, Derrick Land, Robert Gaisey, Steven Peterson, Craig Paridy, Vincent Irizarry photo by Evan Busch Covered with a blanket, a student sleeps on a rug on the floor. Students who disliked hosting overnight guests in their rooms were comforted by the fact that the University allowed visitors to stay no longer than 3 days, photo by Susan Chalmers Although being roommates strengthened the friendship between two students, sharing a room also meant a lot of physical proximity - and not always just with one ' s roommate. Often, students found themselves stuck with an unwanted third party when the other roommate invited friends over. " We usually have people stay the night at least once every two weeks, and people pass through here regularly, " said Adam Duncan, a junior major- ing in electrical engineering. Most daytime visitors did not bother Duncan, but he admitted there were instances when guests made him feel uncomfortable. " I usually feel the need to leave the room when my roommate ' s girlfriend comes over, " he said. " Sometimes I leave also if a guest is over that I don ' t know very well. ..and sometimes having overnight guests on school nights bugs me. " But Duncan ' s sacrifices did not go unrewarded. " When my roommate ' s girlfriend spends the night, it ' s assumed that he ' owes me ' a favor, " he grinned. " He ' s paid for my laundry before, and he helped me stand up to a very mean guitar shop owner in the past. It all depends. " Bethany Barrus, an LSA first-year student complained, " Sometimes in the middle of the night, my roommates will come home around four. They ' ll just bring some people and they ' ll fall asleep on the floor, and I won ' t know who they are in the morning! " In any case, the key to peaceful co-existence was obviously compromise - something Univer- sity students learned a lot about in their years with roommates. 252 Visitors Front Row: Frank Fetters, Christopher Fecfeau, Bradley Chuminatto, Sameer Patel, Michael Prohaska Row 2: Evan Sledge, Adam Polito, Brian Allen, Leon Shen-Yu Tan, DarrenLosey.Chen Ma photo by Evan Busch 6th Van Duren 4th Lewis Front Row: John Church, Edward Park, Samit Mehta, Eric Richardville, Bryan Southwlck, Peter Song Row 2: James Clarahan, Brandon Bell, Andy Park, Evan Mactarlane, Timothy Lee Nasmolhoda, Curtis Seaman, Jason Otto, Konstantinos Boukouris Row 3: Matt McGrail, Gary Lisowski, Jason Phelps, Brad Fioering, Jon Zurawski, Phil Ranta photo by Evan Busch 5th Lewis Front Row: Laura Moore, Arnyre Satterwhite, Kristin Casanova, Nkiruka Uwazurike, Jannon Farkis, Torre Finzel, Kim Carfore, Tara iller Row 2: Lindsey Hartgrove, Alexandra Malloy, Rachel Herman, Claire McLean, Janie Fisher, Alicia Eccles, Puja Ravani, Robin Stein, Rachel Bricklm Row 3: Carolyn Logsdon, Rayana Bitar, Sarah Zicherman, Brooke Kirchner, Lisa Campau, Katherine Klynstra, Ashley Johnson, Mishara Walker, Micheaia Ferguson, Monica Topharn, Ananne Kindle, Kiki Lauya photo by Evan Busch 6th Lewis First Row: Paul Batkins, Angela Julian, Brooke Thompson, Lisa Williams, Julie Williams, Manuel Chavez Row 2: Stephen Haselschwerdt, Satsuki Takahashi, Emily Cloutier, Renee Keller, Marietsa Edje, David Thelen, April Harvey Row 3: Daniel Rodriguez, Jeremy Harris, Aimee Kurshnereit, Abigail Peters, Carol Weng, Bob Schroder, Nikia Williams, Chris Gralke, Prashant Patel Row 4: Christopher Dave, Kurt Klein, Steven Cunningham, Ashoo Jain, Meghan Roach, Benjamin Kallenbach, Ellen Cooper, Mike Anderson, Sara Morrison, Michael Seider, Brian Gleason photo by Evan Busch Front Row: Krysta!

Advertisements began as early as October in order to help students find quality housing, photo by Abby Johnson. In between exams and papers, students had an additional concern of great importance to address: where would they be living next year? The feeling of independence and living away from the family was novel and exhilarating. However, new pressures and re- sponsibilities existed even more prevalently than in University housing. Price, location and, of course, availability were key factors students considered when scouring the area for a place to live. Students searched for housing on com- pletely unique timetables, depending on their priorities. " As long as we figure it out by winter break, that ' s fine with me, " stated LSA sopho- more Brad Pepper decisively. However, heavy workloads and a busy schedule as a whole could severely limit the amount of time stu- dents were willing to spend worrying about such a distant concern. Additionally, a student may have remained undecided about his part- ners in the leasing venture. The student body of the University con- tained diversity at virtually all levels. Finding suitable housing was a tedious process in itself, but many students would testify that selecting fellow roommates could be even more taxing. One individual may have suddenly found one- self halfway through the year with no concrete plan for the future and a rapidly decreasing number of options. Another group of friends may have been forced to decide on an eighth housemate. Should their first choice accept the invitation, where would the remaining students find themselves? If there is no viable choice for that final spot in a house or apartment, would the tenants advertise for a random roommate, or would they elect to divide the cost amongst themselves? LSA sophomore Melissa Harris lamented, " By the time my friends figured out who we would be living with, the house we had our eyes on had been leased already. Most of the places left are just too far from campus, and we started looking in October!

The advan- tage of extra floor space provided by lofts was negated by the difficulty of climbing into them, photo by Susan Chalmers. Just about any college student living in a dorm would agree that one ' s own space could be considered one of the most precious things available to a college student. Students over the years have tried many different ways to maxi- mize space, bunk beds were used by some and others moved to the bigger rooms found on North Campus. After all was said and done, there was one winner in the race to create space: the loft. The loft was created to remove the bed, one of the primary space hogs of the room, from the floor by raising it to the ceiling. This left ample space underneath the bed but in return there was a decrease in comfort. As with all things there were mixed reactions to this idea, some loved their lofts and others hated them. First-year engineering major Jason Miller said, " I love the space that the loft gives us. We have the whole width of the room to sit or just to put stuff. Also, since we have a rocking entertainment system and like to have people over there is plenty of room for everyone to fit. " Jason ' s enthusiasm was the norm for most of the student body. Not all students gave lofts a rave review. First- year communications major Stacey Cauley said, " Although lofts are meant to give someone more space in their room, they are more of a pain than they are worth, literally. I can ' t go a day without accidentally hitting my head on it while getting up from my desk. " Comfort is very important for some students and the idea of hitting your head everyday on a piece of wood hanging from the ceiling was not very appealing to many. Overall, lofts came down to personal prefer- ence. If a student was willing to sacrifice some comfort for extra floor space then the loft was the way to go. However, for those who valued comfort above space the loft was not always the preferred choice. 256 Lofts arkley Front Row: Andrew Szykula, Joseph Mullins, Carl Grant, Fabio Dacunha, Alan Talhelm Row 2: Ross Aronowitz, Daniel Jorgenson, Timothy Reynolds, Andrew Golaszewski, Ranjit Das photo by Carl Wolf Studios ' - ' Moa AJLAAsft 3rd Butler Front Row: Danielle Deutsch, Maurin Utz, Rachael Dorman, Elizabeth Saltzstein, Elizabeth Rupp, Amy Abramson, Kelly Peters, Lauren Trendler, Lorin O ' Toole, Dawn Janukowicz Row 2: Hillary Packer, Lesley Pawluk, Lisa Stern, Jacqueline Buda, Dara Spielvogel, Jacquelyn Ottolini, Elisabeth Hyde, Arpita Shah, Kathryn Leaman, Andrea Begnoche Row 3: Stephanie Miller, Jayna Ballard, Sarah Whitney, Chioma Nwachukwu, Eva Strickler, Stacy Finkbeiner, Katharine Ariss, Julia Reed, Rachel Kitaeff, Michelle Jacobs photo by Carl Wolf Studios 4th Butler Front Row: Nathan Otis, Francis Legasse, Graham Creighton, Michael Krefman, Bradley Kline, Mark Sorensen, Christopher Barnard, Andrew Genser, Derek Fahrer, Brian Bailey Row 2: Mark Tomezak, Thomas O ' Keefe, Patrick O ' Keefe, Justin Petersen, Matthew Jubera, Eric Nett, John Wallbillich, Adam Landry, William Belville Jr Row 3: Mitchell Harris, Matthew Meola, Shawn Lafkowitz, Robert Stein, Thomas Dahl, Kirk Rzasa, Matthew Jones, William Uhl photo by Carl Wolf Studios 5th Scott Front Row: Colin Kerr, Gregory Dreifus, Justin Thompson, Rotem Cohen, Matthew Martin, Wesley Wooland, Kunal Agarwal, Lucas Perl, Thomas Wetherbee, Paul Nahas, Adam Hartstein Row 2: Antonio Martinez, Justin Witzke, Michael Lindbert, Eli Cooke, Brendan Lin, David Golanty, Ashish Shah, Corey Lake, Christopher Maclachlan, Bradley Brown, Scott Menkus, Benjamin Lyons Row 3: John Boychuk, Jeffrey Kroeger, Erik Hall, Andrew Finn, Brian Skiba, David Wilson, Nathan Short, Kevin Gray, John Tripening, Terry Yim, Matthew Neagle photo by Car!

Each student took turns sharing the delegated housework, photo by Susan Chalmers Most students faced countless housing decisions during their time at the University. While many chose to remain in the residence halls or move into off-campus houses or apartments, others took a very different route by deciding to live in a co-op. " I just felt very much at home there, and I lived in the dorms and I really hated it, so I wanted somewhere more friendly, " said first-year Masters student in urban planning Carolyn Gillespie. Junior industrial and operations engineering stu- dent Angela Arnold chose to live in the first co-op she visited, the University-owned Henderson House. She cited the good condition of the house and its convenient location as the co-op ' s most important perks. Both Arnold and Gillespie emphasized the appeal of the co-ops ' low rent rates. " As far as I know, a co-op is the cheapest place you can liveonoraroundcampus, " said Gillespie. " Ruths ' House costs around $400 a month, and that ' s for room, board - everything! " Of course, the co-ops had their disadvan- tages as well. Gillespie cited privacy issues in the larger houses as an occasional problem, while Alex Chambers, a senior English major also living in Ruths ' House, said that the houses could be messy at times. Arnold pointed out the potential for conflicts with such a large group of people working together. But for the most part, the co-ops came highly endorsed. " It ' s a great way to meet people, and a great way to live, " enthused Chambers, while Kit Boulding, a senior music student who formerly lived in Luther House, chimed in, " You learn how to work with people, instead of just having a landlord who takes care of everything. " " There is so much diversity in this house; it ' s really opened up my eyes, " claimed Arnold. " I have learned more here than in any of my classes. It has been a huge character-building experience for me. I think that Henderson has, by far, been the best decision I have made in my college experience.

Opportunities in residence halls provided a convenient way for students to earn money, photo by Abby Johnson In most dorms, there were two or three different job options: library work, dining hall work and front-desk work. The pay rates and hours differed from job to job along with the types of people that worked at each. There were also three main reasons that stu- dents took jobs in the dorms: convenience, to meet people and the benefit of choosing their own hours. Junior anthropology major Joellyn Palomaki liked the convenience of a job in the dorms the most. She said, " I joined the dining hall service in Markley when I was a freshman in order to meet new people. Not only do I get to know the people I work with, but also on occasion you get to talk to some of the kids who come through the hall on a daily basis. Also, I liked the idea of being so close to my job. The people there are great and the management is really flexible. " Convenience was one of the biggest motivators for working in the dorms. Melissa Rabineau liked meeting people the best about working in the dorm. Rabineau, a first-year English major, said, " Working at the front desk is great! It ' s not the best pay but it ' s enough for me and the people there are really cool . Everyone stops at the front desk at one time or another. I think meeting people is a huge part of college and by working at the front desk I get to increase the number of people I would nor- mally meet from just living in the dorm and going to class. " The last big reason for working in the dorms came from junior biochemistry major Mike Bass. " I really like being able to choose the number of hours I work and when I work. This makes it easy for me to work around my class schedule. On those weeks when I know I am going to have a lot of work I can cut back on my hours giving me more time for homework. " As these three pointed out, there were differ- ent reasons for getting a job in the dorm. Whether it was to meet people, to chose your own sched- ule, or just for the convenience of close proximity, the dorm jobs were pretty good to have. 260 Working in Residence Halls 6th Frost Front Row: Bret Hawtamaki, Zachary Kieltyka, Christopher Desana, Stephen Stamatis, Johmarx Patton Row 2; Josh Wool, Richard Norsigian, Stephen Rancour, Brett Acker, Brandon Levey, Brian Kim, Christopher White, Travis Atkinson Row 3: Joshua Schwadron, Sahil Dalai, Michael Reed, Anthony Woodward, Kurt Heinold, Matthew Fisher photo courtesy of Car!

One of the benefits of all female dorms such as Helen Newberry was their location, photo by Audra Rowley For those who live in co-ed dorms, it may be hard to understand why anyone would choose to live in an all-female dorm. The idea of lockdown hours and escort policies deterred many from living in the various girls ' dorms on campus like Betsy Barbour, Helen Newberry, Martha Cook and Stockwell. There were also those who felt that by living in all girls dorms they would lose the experience that one gains living in co-ed housing. For some residents the option to live in all female housing was not their first preference, but occurred due to luck of the draw. There were those who wanted a single room and a girls ' dorm was the only place they could find one. For others the reasons for choosing all-female hous- ing were as diverse as the residents who have occupied the dorms. Many residents enjoyed the quieter atmosphere that went along with living in all-female housing. The overall ambiance of fe- male housing tended to be very different than the co-ed dorms on campus. The quiet, clean and home-like atmosphere of the girls ' dorms at- tracted many residents including Kelly Utrup, an ISA junior, " I prefer female housing because they are generally cleaner and more quiet. I like being able to study in my room without having to worry about someone playing loud music. Stockwell doesn ' t seem as much like a ' dorm ' as the other halls either. " It was these qualities that appealed to many and ultimately were the reasons for the preference for all-female housing. While some chose all-female housing for the home-like atmosphere, others chose this form of housing for a sense of security they would be lacking living in the co-ed housing. The escort policies and earlier lock down hours that were associated with girls ' dorms on campus were comforting for many residents. It was those policies that prevented strangers and unwanted visitors from entering and reduced the number of problems that were associated with housing that did not have these policies. 262 Female Dorms Front Row: Matthew Dube, Matthew Jackson, Michelle Longstreet, Megan Maxwell, Michelle Meints, April Pitts, Aimee Niebuhr, Amanda Lossia, Erin O ' Rourke, Yothin Kuludomphongse Row 2: Daniel Lee, Matthieu Goddeyne, Lauren Rutledge, Bridget Briley, Rachel Schindelar, Gwendolyn Arnold, Joseph Rothfarb, Paul Dobryden, Ian Zeilstra, Gregory Tchou, Ameet Soni Row 3: James Weber, Niraj Patel, Yun Soo Youn, Erin Page, David Chen, Jesse Sielaff, Adam Hollander-Urbach, Christopher Smith, Michael Podolan, Jeff Liou, Evan Schulz Row 4: Jacob Slutsky, Stephen Fuller, Nancy Phillips, Richard Cantley, Hillary Loomis, Jonathan Gleicher, Daniel Hulme, David Soberman, Thomas Dunlap photo by Robert Herrera 2nd Kelsey Front Row: Wayne Yang, Manuj Mangla, Eric Kuczynski, Caleb Green, James Buino Row 2: Jeffrey Walters, Eric Zawacki, Daniel Coatta, Alden Givens, Austin Chapman Row 3: Lucas Way, Mark Gannet, David Mellert photo by Robert Herrera Front Row: Gwendolyn Zirngibl, Jennifer Lee, Elsie Wang, Lisa Schuster, Wendy Jung, Hilary Witbrodt Row 2: Alexis Hovey, Jie Liu, Arpita Bathani, Theda Gibbs, Kristen Saari, Heather Menzles, Julia McGuire Row 3: Kirstn Tatar, Brianna Bayhs, Autumn Ledtke, Leeann Bies, Erin Galvin, Marcia Wilkerson, Emily Swan photo by Robert Herrera Housing 263 Discussing their hall t-shirt design, two West Quad hall council representatives meet in the Business School lounge. Representatives were elected by their respective houses, photo by Naomi Trager Many Students felt intimidated when they tryed to get involved in the organizations on campus. For many, getting involved in student organizations on campus had occurred close to home. Residence hall councils were an integral part of dorm life and it was through these hall councils that many students found their way to get involved. Getting involved with the hall council may have sounded like an arduous process, but there were many opportunities depending on one ' s time availability. Each council had its executive board with the core set of officers. The process for electing these officers began the previous year with any open officer spots filled at the beginning of the year through a separate elec- tion process. These officers were the backbone to the hall council and ultimately were the ones who came up with the ideas they wanted to implement throughout the year. In order to execute the programs that were provided for the hundreds of residents that live in each dorm, the executive board looked to the help of its hall representatives to help with the planning and organizing of the events. Each floor had its hall council representation and those representatives were chosen by their fellow hallmates at the beginning of the year. The number of representatives a floor was able to send to the hall council meetings varied on the population of the floor. For those who did not want the regular com- mitment of being an officer or a representative yet still wanted to get involved, one had the opportunity of becoming a general body member by attending a few meetings. One did not receive the same voting privileges as other members of the council, but were still able to get involved on various committees to help implement activities. There were many opportunities to get in- volved with one ' s hall council. Whether one wanted to be an officer on the executive board or join a committee, there was something for every- one. Getting involved was as easy as staying in the dorm for the night. 264 Hall Councils 68 6900 Gomberg Front Row: Leslie Kramer, Chau-Cristiana Huynh, Tiffany Wade, Olivia Riutta, Sonya Palit, Shelby Henry Row 2: Ashley Schiavone, Saloni Shah, Kiron Johnson, Stephanie Schmidt, Emily Davis, Marisa Lirot Row 3: Emily Rose, Kimberly Wojtas, Nicole Doerr, Rashmi Gehani, Lindsey Gallo, Jennifer Devree, Rachna Saxena photo by Abby Johnson 3rd Taylor Front Row: Sean Gerrish, Sean Cahill, Rishi Sharma, James Juhn, William Schanhals Row 2: Paul Oppenheim, Soo- Young Joo, Amish Shah, William Foster, Devm Woelzletn, Alexander Poster, Jayanth Surakanti, Adam Bowser Row 3: Weiwing Gao, Tyler Lieberman, Michael Tomsky, Evan Tiderington, Christopher Chubb, Gerald Pankratz, Mark Karadsheh, Nitin Gupta photo by Abby Johnson 36 3700 Taylor Front Row: Kathleen Tyer, Kavita Padiyar, Sandra Del Colle, Lisa Yang, Kristy Lambe, Janice Liao, Patricia Shay, Erica Lo Row 2: Bethany Root, Elizabeth Manley, Kimberly Chik, Shadi Roshandel, Sahana Mysore, Jennifer Reinhart Row 3: Lauren Teverbaugh, Erin Russell, Joy Wojtas, Rachel Robinson, Vanessa Troiani, Layla Carson photo by Abby Johnson 53 5400 Bush Front Row: Olivia Yu, Peri Nelson, Kelly Slay, Christina Dzingle Row 2: Alexis Sharp, Julianne Jones, Crystal McLawhorn Row 3: Lachina Algers, Jennifer Davis, Cynthia Stanfield, Angela Becker photo by Abby Johnson Housing 265 Taking a break from a holiday party, a group of students sit down and have a drink to- gether. House parties often had themes and decorations, especially during the holiday season, photo by Audra Rowley Although a major portion of most students ' college experiences were filled with hours of classes, homework and studying, the remain- der of their time was generally spent having fun. Perhaps the most widespread form of recreation around campus was the ever-popu- lar house party. While some were content sim- ply to enjoy house parties put on by their friends, neighbors or even strangers, other brave students held parties at their own homes. Some threw parties to celebrate special oc- casions, such as holidays or end-of-term, while others felt that any day was a good day for a party. Steve Grikschat, an electrical engineer- ing senior, claimed that he usually waited for a special event to have a party, but aerospace engineering junior Erin Spindler disagreed with his reasoning. " The last party we had was for my birthday, but you don ' t really need a special reason, " she said. Standard fare at house parties around cam- pus was keg beer, although some adventurous students provided a variety of options, like mixed drinks. " We generally stick to the usual, " grinned architectur e junior Ryan Brayak. Besides the expense of buying beverages for the guests, some students discovered other inconveniences that went hand-in-hand with hosting a party. " My jacket was taken this year, and someone stole the tap off our keg, " com- plained Brayak. The incident did not deter him from future parties, however. " I ' ll hide my jackets next time and chain the tap to the keg, " he smiled. " The toughest thing about having a party is getting people to come, " he added. " You have to invite so many people to make it a success. That ' s the biggest thing. " The benefits and drawbacks of hosting a party versus attending one were fairly balanced. " The good thing about having the party is that you don ' t have to walk anywhere, you don ' t have to go out into the cold, " noted Spindler. " But your house gets kind of messed up. all over the place.

Students living in substance-free housing found several alternatives to drinking alcohol, photo by Susan Chalmers Specialty housing could be found all around campus. It ranged from designated smoking rooms to all-female dorms to sub- stance free rooms. Substance free housing seemed to be a campus-wide rule with regard to the dorms for the most part rather than only being found in specific areas. First-year ISA student Matthew Wesolek said, " I don ' t live in a substance-free dorm perse but since I am only 1 8 and most of the rest of the hall that I live in is also under 21,1 don ' t really have to worry about alcohol in the dorms. It ' s pretty much automatically substance free. " There were many reasons why students chose to live in substance free housing. Some did not drink or do drugs and wanted to be around other students who were the same. Others knew that a big distraction for many college students was the presence of alcohol and thus did not want to have that presence in their room or hall for it could easily detract from their studies. There were some that did not really want to live in a substance free dorm but got put there at random by the University. Sarah Bedy, a first-year communications major said, " I really had no preference as to where I lived. I got put into a substance-free room but from what I have seen so far there really isn ' t any difference from a normal room. There are still the general drunken activities that go on. " For the most part substance-free rooms could be described in two ways: they were basically very wide-spread due to the high number of underage students who lived in the dorms and helped to control the drug and alcohol flow within the dorms and substance- free rooms did not really work well at all. It did not seem to infringe on anyone ' s social agen- das and it was a very common sight, especially among first-year students, to see someone come stumbling down the hall in the middleof the night and dive into the bathroom so as to not throwup all over the hallway. 268 Substance-Free Housing 88 8900 Huber Front Row: Stephanie Milczarski, Kristin Knzmamch, Ashley Ley, Jennifer Russell, Anita Amin, Christina Tzilos, Chenin McLean Row 2: Joshua Shina, Sara Bargovan, Kristin Van Vliet, Lisa Ruff, David Levy Row 3: Carl Hasselbarth, Roland Gardner, Gabriel Salanta, Robert Caplis, Nnamudi Amobi, Steven Reynolds photo by Abby Johnson 32QQ- Front Row: Allison Miller, Takisha Lashore, Sedika F ranklin, Destiny Faust, Lisa Wilson, Annelies Conti, Rachel Turchin, Alison Haar, Roberto Morales, Allen Leung Row 2: Justin Le, Tanja Walker, Canethia Henderson, Massoud Kuzzad, Nicole Buck Row 3: Devhonna Mahone, Branden Mull, Jessica Higgins, Matthew Vanderhyde, Jonathan Wang, Huai-yen Liu, Justin Bailey, Kenneth Herbst, Alicia Filter, Sahil Sanghui, Amber Long photo by Audra Rowley 3400 Front Row: Winchelle Evans, Olivia Franklin, Shital Thekdi, Lauryn Hale, Vincent Ciricola Row 2: Jill Kadish, Rebecca Motley, Katherme Matous, Chemari Justice, Christopher Steenwyk Row 3: Scott Meves, Jason Gilbert, Aaron Suh, Sandeep Bidari photo by Audra Rowley 15QQ Front Row: Brent Huck, Jessica Cordero, Chia Ho, Andrea Aragon, Aisha Benton, Jessica Magnatta, Boatemaa Ntiri Row 2: Philip Wang, Evan Bryant, Rahul Saksena, ChaJuana Chambliss, Kimberly Larochelle, Bethany Barrus, Brandon Bretmg Row 3: Branden Hackney, Matthew Hughes, Gabriel Albert, Jeffrey Diemer, Cornelia Pace, Greta Halbert, Priya Sehgal, Lawrence Fang photo by Audra Rowley Housing 269 Carefully scanning the newspa- per, sophomore linguistics major Jessica Cooke looks for a reasonable sublet for spring term. Students placed advertise- ments in newspapers in order to find other students who were willing to sublet their houses during spring and summer. photo by Audra Rowley A vast majority of the students attheUniveristy chose to live in the dorms their freshman year, but in later years of their academic career, chose to move out into apartments and houses as to further the representation of their newly found freedoms. But most real estate agencies and rental companies, when offering a lease, re- quired a twelve-month commitment from stu- dents. When school let out in April, many students were faced with the problem of subletting their living spaces. Subletters had to be found, forms had to be signed, stuff had to be moved in and out of apartments and payments had to be made. Many inexperienced renters did not know whom to turn to, but luckily University- run subletting agencies and many others were there to help lost and confused students. While many problems occurred in actually subletting a place, the people moving into an apartment or house during the summer also had their share of problems. " The level of difficulty for getting a sublet apartment depends on who you sublet from, " stated Hailey Choi, a pre-law sophomore. " My roommate and I looked online and subletted through an agency. One of the problems with subletting is that I had to change the accounts to show my name instead of the people who were renting the apartment originally because we did not want the bills to go to them. But, I really liked having an apartment over a house because I only wanted it for the spring term, plus my roommate and I had the whole apart- ment to ourselves, as opposed to living with people we did not know in a house. " For most people, subletting was a real pain, with all sorts of preparation and moving, but in the end, when a place was settled into, it was worth all of the trouble. 270 Subletting 42 11-4300 ens Front Row: Aasmish Maheshwari, Robert Ambrose, Gabrielle Schillinger, Maussa Naittoff, Catherine Formas, Stacie Ain, Sunil Khanchandari, David Elwood Row 2: Anu Gupta, Amy Deline, Joe!

Most students who chose to join a fraternity or sorority house committees and elected rushed during their first year, positions, fraternities and although some waited until their sororities were much more than sophomore or even their junior year just a place to live. Being greek when they were more settled into meant more than charitable college life. This year, sorority rush service and a crowded social was shortened a week and occurred calendar, it meant tradition and almost a month earlier for conve- life-long friendships. greek life W pfl T Kappa Sigma fraternity pledges rehearse a . serenade in the living room of their fraternity -? house.

Mudbowl was hosted by Sigma Alpha Epsilon annually, photo by Mike Cutri nience and to better accommodate students ' schedules. For females, Rush was a large time commitment. Sororities required rushees to visit all houses while men rushing fraterni- ties could go to as few or as many houses as they wanted. Receiving a bid brought about a variety of new experiences. Being a pledge, going to a barn dance, playing in Mudbowl or participating in Greek Week were all part of the experience of being a member of the University ' s Greek system. With philanthropy events, Greek Life 273 The Greek system could not exist without its own process of recruitment, otherwise known as Rush. Sorority recruit- ment kicked off with a mass meeting where girls could register and have any questions answered. Next, all interested women attended " Mixers, " the first set of parties, where they visited with members of every house on campus. A week after Mixers, girls returned to their desired houses to learn more about each house. These " set parties " required a lot of planning by the sororities to decorate and organize entertain- ment for the rushees. Once the parties were over, the women ranked their favorite in hopes to receive a bid indicating their new membership. Sorority rush was a long process, lasting about three Hanging their symbolic flag for State Street traffic to see, Chi Psi shows off its letters in hopes to interest prospec- tive members for their house. Fraternity Rush was much less formal than Sorority Rush, photo by Susan Chalmers weeks, where women explored their options to the fullest potential. " Sorority rush is really long and takes a lot of planning. But it gives you a chance to spend a lot of time with your sisters and meet a great group of girls, " said sophomore political science major Kate Black. Men ' s rush differed from women ' s rush in many ways. Men ' s rush lasted for about a week and was much less formal than women ' s rush. The prospective Greek members had the option of going to only those houses they were specifically interested in. The men ' s low-key process entailed hanging out and meeting active members in each house in a casual setting. Rushing a fraternity was much more informal than a sorority. It gave the guys a chance to talk to members of different houses for more than five minutes to give them a better feel for what each house was about. Both fraternity and sorority rush was an important part of the Greek system for finding individuals that would contribute to the success of each chapter. " Rush is an imperfect process. We have the ability to change each person ' s life that walks through our doors, and if we do not look at that as a serious and important opportunity, we will allow the imperfections of the system to change the lives of those involved, " said sophomore general studies major David Coleman. by Lisa Franzoi Katie Ryan On their first day as members of the Greek system, the new members of Alpha Chi Omega celebrate by mingling on the balcony with active members.

" These young women wanted to use their collective strength to promote academic excellence and to provide assistance to persons in need, " School of Education junior Christel Williams explained. Keeping with their original goals, they focused on a " Five- Point Program Thrust, " including economic and educational development, international and political awareness and in- volvement, physical and mental health. Despite their serious goals, the women of Delta Sigma Theta also prioritized fun with an annual Founder ' s Day party, and the Larue Hurd Johnson Scholarship Ball, a fundraiser that raised $4,000 to prospective college students. " We tend to focus more on service, " Williams commented. With involvement in over 30 charities each year, that certainly seemed to be true. The women maintained the standards of excellence set by their founders, promoting community ser- vice and academic excellence. amma Phi Beta Front Row: Michelle Miladinov, Danielle Whitney, Hilary Weber, Heather Menzies, Nadia Obeid, Renee Linares, Julia Reed, Laura Wonch, Nicole Sprader, Melissa McGivern, Lauren Mendelson, Mary Kerkorian, Michelle Urka Row 2: Meghan Mika, Sarah Finney, Carrie Fry, Laura Rogers, Traci Buchalski, Erika Wilson, Bridgett Mamola, Becky Hilger, Nicole Cito, Jessie Ulrich, Megan Roortey, Kelly Moore, Katie Sultani Row 3: Melissa Orban, Erika Johnson, AnneDouma, Jill Vance, Kate MacEwen, Krisin Conte, Tazi Pruitt, Lisa Kozian, Angie Steffen, Lisa Chutorash, Becky Myers, Colleen Smith, Ann Bell, Jenni Beyland, Jill Peterson, Alison Knapp, Pavani Guntur, Elaine Wong, Christine Racine, Jamie Hoyne Row 4: Hilary Troester, Tiffany Viant, Deanna Lekas, Gretchen Pletz, Andrea Loewen, Erin Rons, Jennie Streem, Beth Bernstein, Michelle Tsay, Nicole Miksell, Harper Gould, Trisha Alberts photo c ourtesy of Gamma Phi Beta Gamma Phi Beta sorority was hoping for cool fall weather this year when they celebrated their first Chili Cook-off on Elbel field Saturday, Oct 21st. Despite warm weather, the hot chili successfully raised $3,000 for their national philanthropy, Camping for Girls. Proceeds were donated to Camp Heartland and YMCA camps. The Cook-off, however, was not the favorite fall event for all sisters in Gamma Phi Beta. Harper Gould said, " Barn dance is a favorite date party because everyone has a blast square dancing, wearing silly outfits, having crazy hay fights, and warming up by the campfire. " For first-year LSA student Melissa Orban, fall was time for Rush. She recalls, " Each time I came to the house, the girls I spoke to at previous sets remembered me, and wished me luck. The friendly atmosphere drew a lot of our new members in. " Some remembered the experience unlike any other.

For rush, active members put on costumes and played a role that was quite different from their everyday personalities. As the rushees stood outside the door listening to window banging and Pi Phi chanting, inside, the actives anxiously waited in their comedy attire. Some girls were dressed up like Pat and others like the cheerleaders. " Rush always brings everyone together as a house, " noticed senior kinesiology student Dana Dziekan. " It makes you realize how many amazing people there are in Pi Phi. " Rush was also a chaotic season for Pi Phis. " Rush is like a suspense novel. I just want to flip to the end, " said sophomore psychology major Allison Zaleski. Sorority members also dressed up in athletic gear, earning the honor of sorority intramural sports champion for the second year in a row. Their involvement in athletics was a release from all the pressures from classes and responsibilities. Sophomore pre-med student Gina Cicinelli said, " Intramural sports are definitely a great relief to our hectic college lives and it ' s great way for our house to show how awesome we really are. " Outside from being active in sports, Pi Phis said they were still socially active despite the changes in the social policy. Date parties continued to be the main social event for the house, while Barn Dance was usually everyone ' s favorite. Sisters dressed up in tight jeans, cowboy boots and cowboy hats to complete their look. In addition to social activities, community service events were held to benefit local charities. The annual Jell-0 jump, held during Greek Week to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association, gave everyone a chance to have fun while contrib- uting to a worthy cause. Strong friendships provided support in times of need. " Pi Phis are very down-to-earth people. I have made a lot of great friends and know there will always be someone there for me at the house, " Dziekan said, by Lisa Franzoi and Nathan Busch m Before leaving the house for a night of partying, four Pi Beta Phi ' s wait for their dates to arrive for a date party.

With mandatory seminars for the new members regarding respon- sibility in the Greek system and instructional speaker meetings like those about First Aid and the negative effects of binge drinking, Theta members contributed their time to learning about problems that influence their college environment. Another special speaker that Theta executives supplied for the benefit of their house was the speaker for the campus ' Safe Sex Store. The seminar informed everyone about safe sex and made them comfortable talking about it and being familiar with the dynamics of it together. After the seminar, everyone had a chance to buy products from the speaker and 20 percent of the proceeds from the purchased goods were donated to AIDS research. Junior psychology major Dara Frank said about the event, " The people from the Safe Sex Store were great. They gave us so much information, had everyone play with an unwrapped condom to become familiar with the aspects of safe sex and told us that ' if you aren ' t comfortable handling a condom, you can ' t be ready for sex. ' " Another involvement that Kappa Alpha Theta engaged in was Sigma Alpha Epsilon ' s annual Mudbowl tournament. The women slouched around in the mud with Sigma Kappa in a tough battle for victory. Theta fell short in the competition though surrendering with a score of 24-8. Kappa Alpha Theta ' s enthusiasm to make changes was evident last year in their involvement with educational activi- ties that taught them about issues that surrounded them at the University. Through these activities members hoped to change the past reputations about Kappa Alpha Theta. by Katie Ryan Before heading across the street to Sigma Chi ' s Derby Days, Kappa Alpha Theta juniors get pumped up to defend their title.

One of the most popular activities in the house was a ski trip to Boyne Mountain over Martin Luther King weekend. The girls carpooled up north, stayed in the luxurious Bay Harbor Hotel, and spent the weekend sking down the slopes. " I didn ' t know many people in the house very well as we left for Boyne, but we had a great time. It was a great time for the pledge classes to bond as they roomed together and shared stories, " stated LSA sophomore Cheryl Hackett. Alpha Phi prided itself on being a diverse house. Subse- quently, there were many members involved in an array of activities. The first weekend of November the house put on their annual 5k run to raise money for SAPAC and the Alpha Phi Foundation, had a sister performing in a production of " Evita, " and had another newly initiated member competing in the Miss Washtenaw County Pageant.

" Evita " was such a good show and the pageant was a new experience for me. It was a great weekend to spend with my sisters, " said junior English major, Tiffany Marsch. Despite the fact that there were so many organized sister- hood events for the house, some members felt the best way for them to spend quality time with their sisters was simply living together. " As a senior, living with my favorite fellow ' sisters ' makes everyday become a sisterhood event. There is always some- thing bizarre happening to one of us creating drama for the rest of us. I don ' t know if my life could be as entertaining or adventurous, " gushed senior political science major Elize Yoon. " I couldn ' t have picked better housemates than these girls from my sorority.

The match held October 1 4 in the front yard of Sigma Alpha Epsilon during Homecoming weekend was no excep- tion. Only this game was different than any game played in the " Big House; " it was played on a field of mud. This year marked the Mudbowl ' s 70th year as Sigma Alpha Epsilon ' s primary charity fundraiser. SAE, along with Delta Sigma Phi earned over $ 1 ,200 for the patients at Mott ' s Children ' s Hospital.

Despite the tradition of Mudbowl, there was an extra twist to the extravaganza. This year a football tournament prior to Mudbowl was held to determine which fraternity would play the hosts. Aftera six game elimination, Delta Sigma Phi earned their spot as the opposing team. They fell short in the mud, however, losing mudbowl to SAE 25-6. Abe Kane, a junior economics major stated, " I was excited about the tourna- ment. People couldn ' t say we won by default this way. We are hoping to get more fraternities involved in the tournament in the future to make it more competitive. " Two sororities were also involved in the Mudbowl event. Because of some national Greek chapter restrictions, some sororities had to back out of the contest, but Sigma Kappa and Kappa Alpha Theta stepped up to the challenge and battled it out. Sigma Kappa came out victorious in the women ' s football game with a score of 28-14.

It had sixty active members in the past year and fifteen pledges. There were many things that Alpha Delta Phi had involved itself in on campus. They participated in all Intramural sports and had won the past three Greek Weeks. Greek Week was a huge community service event where the fraternities and sororities would choose a charity to sponsor and then try to raise money through an event for the charities. A-D-Phi, along with their partners Delta Delta Delta, won Greek Week. A-D-Phi also took second in the Blood Drive for total amount of people giving blood. Community service events, including bowling with handicapped people was something that A-D- Phi was known to do in addition to raising the most money for the penny war, the results of which were sent to charity. One major thing that A-D-Phi did frequently during the beginning of each school year was hold pre-football game bashes at their fraternity house.

When the students would walk down State Street on their way to the stadium, they would hear A-D-Phi ' s music blaring and see people crowded on their porch that overlooked the street. On days when the weather was nice students would see some of the members of A-D-Phi playing volleyball on their sand court located out in front of the house. Jason Sparks, a junior majoring in business and the president of the fraternity said, " I feel that joining Alpha Delta Phi was the best choice that I made at this university. It has opened up so many opportunities for me with leadership and involvement on campus. I also feel that I have made a close group of friends that I will keep in contact with for a long time.

Initiating over 20 new members last fall and winter, Psi Upsilon continued to grow in numbers and commodore, while boasting philan- thropy events that involved a large part of the Greek System. Of these Greek wide philanthropy events, Psi Upsilon members hosted their annual " Winterfest " that involved seven other fraternities and sororities. Held in Psi U ' s back yard, " Winterfest " consisted of an ice hockey tournament between the fraternities as well as other memorable festivi- ties. The purpose of the tournament was to raise money for the Ann Arbor Humane Society while providing the Greek System with a legitimate social event. " Because of the refined social limits placed in the Greek System, it costs more to Sharing the strong friendships that have formed, four Psi Upsilon members hang out at the fraternity house.

Winterfest combines both philanthropy and social opportunities making it worthwhile, " commented junior engineering major Andy Nester. Another outdoor event that Psi Upsilon members spon- sored was their " G and T Festival, " which was an all day affair and included four other Greek chapters on campus: Delta Delta Delta, Alpha Phi and Beta Theta Pi. By providing live bands during the day and multiple disc jockeys at night, the event created a long and unforgettable day. Through many engagements throughout the year, Psi Upsilon proved that despite changes to the social policies surrounding the Greek system, there was still room to frater- nize with other houses while helping the community. by Katie Ryan At their winter formal, Psi Upsilon members and their dates converse while waiting for their dinners to be served.

The skit demonstrated the diversity of Alpha Chi Omega and their sorority pride, photo courtesy of Sharon Tanenbaum When someone mentioned something about a fraternity or sorority, the stereotypes of the Greek system instantly sprang to mind. There was one sorority that changed those stereotypes and refused to be confused as just another Greek organization. Making it a dominant characteristic, Alpha Chi Omega thrived on diversity regarding their members and involvement. For the second year they sponsored a flag football tourna- ment in October to raise money for the Children ' s Leukemia Foundation. The Charity Bowl brought positive attention to the Greek system. " I think it ' s great. The Greek Community gets such a bad rap and this event changes that. It ' s so great to see non-Greeks participate in a Greek-sponsored event. There ' s such a great vibe. So many people got up early on a football weekend after probably spending the previous night out partying and they really wanted to be there, " said Presi- dent Sharon Tanenbaum, a junior English major.

Alpha fell short with some injured players in the following round to Delta Gamma, photo courtesy of Aylin Koroglu The charity event, co-sponsored by Sigma Phi Epsilon and University ' s Students Against Cancer, invited students from all over campus to participate in either the women ' s, men ' s or coed flag football leagues. The event raised over $1,500 for the Foundation. A Chi O ' s diversity remained an essential element to the foundation they thrived on. Each woman brought her own interests to the sorority helping to make the most of their time at the University. Rush Chair and junior biology and Asian studies major Hanni Lee said, " I ' ve had to deal with stereo- types all my life because I ' m Asian, I ' m from New York, and then I joined a sorority, another stereotype. I ' m confident that our house means it when we talk about our philanthropy involvement. We take initiative and don ' t just involve the Greek community, which would further segregate us. We raise awareness and want to let people know that we aren ' t that much different from everyone else. " Though philanthropy remained an important part of Alpha Chi, activities like helping a sister with an exam or taking a Meijer ' s break at odd hours of the morning, Alpha Chi ' s knew loyalty, support, and sisterhood, by Katie Ryan Before hitting the beach, seniors Katie Ryan and Miriam Imperial eat lunch at an outdoor restaurant on the waterfront in Acapulco, Mexico.

To accommodate the growth of the fraternity, Pike moved into a bigger house so that more brothers had the opportunity to live in the house. Residing at 1 501 Washtenaw, 53 Pi Kappa Alpha members experienced their first year living in the new house. LSA sophomore Dave Gorski commented on living in the house, " There is always something to do, always someone to talk to, always someone to throw the football with; I love it. " With all of the positive aspects that made Pike different than other fraternities it was no wonder recruitment went so well. Pi Kappa Alpha members contributed over 5,000 hours of community service throughout the year to such institutions as Mott ' s Children ' s Hospital and The Ronald McDonald House. They pulled together all members and were continu- ally committed to making their fraternity better. In regard to the involvement of Pi Kappa Alpha men, LSA sophomore Gus Makris commented, " We have some great young guys who During fall recruitment at the fraternity house, Ben Kaufman listens to rushees as they ask questions about fraternity life and school.

But the large number of older guys in the house is really beneficial, and they help out anyway they can. " Pike also excelled in athletics boosting their intramural sports record as one of the top three fraternities on campus. Their ability in athletics as well as philanthropy was a deter- mining factor in their honor of winning the prestigious Smythe award four out of the last five years. The Smythe award presented by the Pi Kappa Alpha nationals is granted to the top Pike chapter in the nation. LSA senior Justin Bright said about his involvement and pride in his fraternity, " I wouldn ' t change my experience with Pike for anything.

Unfortunately, outsiders of Greek life focused on this lifestyle as the dominating characteristic of the Greek system. In retaliation to the problem, active members decided to change the stereotype by stepping back and looking at the problem. After years of contemplating how to rewrite the alcohol policy for the Greek community, the Panhellenic Association and the Interfraternity Council composed a plan that would accommodate the underage drinking law on campus but still allowed members of the Greek system an Amanda Spyker, Whitney Downing, and Tiffany Thomas, all members of Alpha Phi, enjoy a party including 10 houses at the Majestic Bar in Detroit. The third-party- vender policy did not affect those over the legal drinking age. photo courtesy of Tiffany Thomas active social life. The strategy they came up with was to divert the drinking from campus to nearby bars that would discour- age underage drinking. Sororities and fraternities chartered buses to the nearby bars to conduct their parties the same as before, only in a new location. Though reluctant at first, most houses adapted to the new policy and found ways to make events out of the bus rides and nights of dancing at the clubs. Some houses used the extra social money they collected to have more date parties, an- other alternative written in the revised alcohol policy. Alpha Chi Omega ' s internal social chair, junior engineering major Sara Balbach said about the date parties, " Planning the date parties isn ' t as easy as it seems but I always have a blast at them, and there ' s always stories to tell the next day. " Though some looked at the new policy as restricting and against the reason they decided to join a house, the alcohol plan was conceived to benefit the Greek community and to better the reputation surrounding Greeks and alcohol. Pi Kappa Alpha president and sophomore pre-business major Gus Makris commented, " Everybody stills seems to have a good time on the weekend, I thought the new policy would affect the social scene a lot more than it has.

The University ' s Beta Eta chapter has existed on campus since 1 929. Alpha Delta Pi boosted 1 50 active members this year and all of them were involved in I various activities as a chapter. Philanthropy was a large part of what defined Alpha Delta Pi. Serving at over seven charity institutions, members per- formed activities like making toiletry kits for The Ronald McDonald House during fall recruitment. New this year was the philanthropy project " I Spy an ADPi, " an event that also raised money for The Ronald McDonald House. Other estab- lishments that Alpha Delta Pi members contributed to were the Ozone House and The Pound House.

" Alpha Delta Pi also participated in other activites the University offered as well as events that the chapter orga- nized. Intramural Sports teams were formed for those mem- bers interested in athletics, and workshops and retreats were scheduled to strengthen the bond between the sisters of Alpha Delta Pi. ISA senior Shannon Griffin remarked about her sorority ' s activities, " ADPi has shaped my college experi- ences because I have made my best friends and my fondest memories through the house. " Members of Alpha Delta Pi were active in many organiza- tions that furthered their involvement with the University, proving their well-rounded nature. Other campus activites these women participated in were varsity sports, honor soci- eties, community service groups, dance and theater produc- tions, a capella groups, publications, and the Panhellenic Association as well as other campus clubs. Many ADPi mem- bers joined clubs together to support one another.

With these numbers, one could understand the need for an executive board to oversee the activities and programs of the Greek system. Made up of members from each of the sixteen sororities, the Panhellenic Association met regularly to coordinate activi- ties and set polici es for its members. Every year started off with new member recruitment that took a lot of time and energy. " Fall Rush was time consuming but it really paid off with all the great women we welcomed into the sorority community, " stated senior English major Alexa Gunther. Panhel was concerned with sponsoring numerous educa- tional workshops and seminars as well as proposing and implementing new policies to better the Greek System and the community as a whole. They brought in speakers from all over the country to educate its members on a variety of topics. Speakers included Don Di Paolo who spoke about getting the most out of the Greek system and from college as a whole. In addition, Mike Green also came to discuss the effects of drugs Senior Veronica Valentine and junior Marc Hustvedt show off their luscious lips during the Greek Escapade in the fall. The IFC and Panhel booth had toys and prizes as well as food as incentive to visit them, photo courtesy of Debbie Helfman and alcohol. As Panhel brought in these speakers, new and old members of the Greek system were educated and in- formed on issues like alcohol, drugs and hazing that were prime issues within the community. In the past year, Panhel also developed a new policy on both hazing and the Hazing Task Force designed to control and combat it. The University Greek community was very serious about its " zero tolerance " for hazing. Additionally, a revision was made in the Social Environment Management Policy to better fit the changing atmosphere in Ann Arbor. Organizational studies senior Angle Miller said, " Being on Panhel has been one of my best experiences at the University of Michigan, as it has given me the chance to grow as a leader of our Greek community while making friends and having fun at the same time.

Many young women turned to the Greek system for familiar faces and a place to call home. First-year LSA student Katie Robinson found her place on campus at Sigma Kappa during Rush. Robinson said, " I was apprehensive of joining a sorority at first, butSigma Kappa changed myframeof mind. I walked up to the beautiful house on Washtenaw, and I was awe- struck. The girls were very down-to-earth, and I felt a real sense of closeness with the girls in the house. I consider myself lucky to be a member. " Like Robinson, the sisters of Sigma Kappa concluded that fall recruitment was exceptional. Junior English major and Rush Chairman of Sigma Kappa, Jessica Coen, said, " Rush this year was great and it really brought the sisters in the house together. It was a lot of work, but ultimately reward- ing. A successful rush has really promoted a great attitude throughout the house. " The new energy and positive attitude brought into Sigma Kappa helped the house focus on multiple national philan- thropies, the Maine Seacoast Mission, Gerontology, Alzheimer ' s Disease Research and the Ronald McDonald House. Sigma Kappa raised money for those philanthropies by selling candy, sponsoring walks, and conducting bucket drives on the Diag. Another fun and rewarding activity was Sigma Kappa ' s participation in Mud Bowl on Homecoming weekend. The girls in the house got down and dirty in Sigma Alpha Epsilon ' s muddy yard and after an intense battle they were victorious over Kappa Alpha Theta. Looking back on her experience in Sigma Kappa sophomore LSA student, Nicole Gopoian said, " I think we are really down to earth and real. We really do like each other!

Delta Gamma ' s Bid Day activities included driving around campus and showing off their new members, photo courtesy of Sarah Doll Delta Gamma had 159 active members and 50 new pledges that participated in many philanthropies and social events throughout the year. Delta Gamma ' s main service project was " Service for Sight, " where the members of the house volu nteered to read to blind children and created brail books for them. Delta Gamma also educated children with- out visual difficulty in understanding children with the handi- cap through Kids on the Block, known as KOTB. For the children to understand the purpose of KOTB, some of the DG girls wrote and performed a puppet show at local elementary schools. Delta Gamma also participated in Derby Days with Sigma Chi and Watermelon Bust with the Lambda Chi Alpha. During Greek week, Delta Gamma sponsored an event known as Anchorsplash. The members of Delta Gamma and other Greek members would compete in events like synchronized swimming, and relay races.

Sophomore Rachel Garner said of philanthropy, " I love being a part of DG and participating in the many events that it has to offer; it made this year unbelievable for me. From Anchorsplash to Water- melon Bust, I had the best time. I never thought I could ever like this school or have as much pride for it as I did this year. " A major part of DG ' s social life was based around their many date parties and two formals. The winter Initiation Ball was dedicated to all the new members, while Senior Sail Away, in the spring, was dedicated to the graduates. Linda Andrew, a pre-law first-year student said, " The date parties and the other events that DG has set up for us have been so much fun. I have met so many people since I have joined DG, and feel that this was definitely one of the best decisions I have made this year. " Delta Gamma was proud of the diversity of the members of their house as well as their extensive community involve- ment. Junior communication studies major Sarah Doll said, " The young women who became my best friends during my first year in Delta Gamma now seem to be a part of my family.

Planned and administered by selected members of the Greek system, one fraternity and one sorority paired up as a team to compete in a variety of a activities and competitions. Examples of these activities were a blood drive, dance competitions, tug-of-war, relay races, a volleyball tournament and more messy events like the Jell-0 jump and pie and pizza eating contests. The objective of Greek Week was to strengthen the rela- tions between each chapter of the Greek system through Presented with a trophy, Lindsay Mahn announces the winner of Anchor Splash in the Diag. Anchor Splash was Delta Gamma ' s sponsored contribution to Greek Week and includes a series of aquatic activities, photo courtesy of Delta Gamma healthy competitions, but more importantly, its purpose was to raise money and services for organizations throughout the community. Such institutions included Mott ' s Children ' s Hos- pital, the American Red Cross, and the Ronald McDonald House. After hours of planning by the Steering Committee, the group elected to organize the festivities, the week kicked off with the pairing party held at Rick ' s bar. At the pairing party all the teams were announced and everyone discovered which house they were to join forces with to attempt to gain the respect of winning Greek Week. After an exhausting week of team spirit and Greek repre- sentation at competitions around campus, an event called Sing Variety summed up the yearly extravaganza. Most members of the Greek system piled into Hill Auditorium to support their teams during Sing Variety. Sing Variety was a talent show where representatives from each team showed off their hard work through choreographed dance routines and singing performances.

Meetings were held throughout the year to plan story topics and humor bits, photo courtesy of The Gargoyle Published for over 90 years, the Gargoyle was the University ' s official humor magazine. A staff of around 20 students worked to create two issues a semester during the fall and winter, which sold around campus for one dollar each. The magazine ' s sales campaigns were impeded by the loss of their primary sales location, the fish bowl, due to con- struction. The staff combined their efforts to over- come these difficulties and commandeered side- walk space in front of the Union from the city to sell their publication. Found between the colorful covers were quiz- zes, articles, comics and jokes targeting the college- GLANCE aged demographic. The presidential election, which monopolized news headlines for much of the fall semester, only provided more material for a staff that never had a shortage of targets for their satirical humor. The Magazine was produced out of an elabo- rately decorated office on the ground floor of the Student Publications Building.

Their main goal was to educate the students about opportunities in management consulting. " We were dedicated to five goals, " said Siddarth Mangharam, " which in- cluded increasing members ' knowledge of the consulting industry, refining skills needed for suc- cess in the job search industry, increasing network- ing, interviewing, placement opportunities, and assisting recruiters to better connect with Business School students and increase their offers and yields. " Pranaz Kothara agreed with Mangharam, crediting the groups ' leadership by explaining how " they demonstrated a clear commitment to advancing the University ' s Business School in the consulting field. " They held out their goal throughout the school year by having many events, including consulting orientation and networking workshops.

" At the consulting orientation, members were given a feel for the consulting industry, the type of work done and lifestyle issues. At the networking workshop the members were provided with information about the whole recruiting process. Anuja Gossain be- lieved that " the club had been instrumental in helping students prepare for recruiting. " Some of the basic information included were the contact persons in every firm, getting one ' s foot through the door, questions to ask the recruiters, initiating and continuing conversation with the recruiter, getting on the closed list, and leveraging the current MBA and alumni network. The members were pleased with their experi- ence in the club.

The students spent the summer in Ann Arbor while most of the campus cleared out. photo courtesy of AIESEC TH Acronyms were never an endangered species at the University, but one of the more complex ones was thegroup name AIESEC. Some liberties were taken in the syntax, but this abbreviation stood for the International Association of Students in Economics and Business Management. The organization ' s mis- sion was not nearly so obscure. The group ' s basic purpose was to facilitate inter- national internship exchanges, placing students from 84 different countries at jobs in foreign nations. It was the largest student-run organization in the world. It had branches at 820 universities around the world and helped over 50,0000 members get jobs. " However, don ' t make the mistake of viewing AIESEC as a job agency, " junior communications major Kavita Sequiera said. The mission statement also included promoting international awareness on college campuses and helping students develop global leadership qualities. These goals were accomplished through the exchange program. It was open to any University students who wanted to work abroad in fields of engineering, business, and teaching English. AIESEC helped to set up interviews, assist with visa paper- work, and prepare students for culture shock. " AIESEC was there for me when I needed a work visa, and continued to be a support for me through- out my entire stay. The AIESEC family had a strong world-wide connection; there was always a sister or brother anywhere in the world anyone wanted to go, " senior communications major Rachel Arney said, by Amanda Atherton Free from duties for an evening, sophomore Jessica Carps, senior Rickesh Kashnani, sophomore Rachna Saxena and junior Kavita Sequiera attend a party.

One of the most popular shows was a call-in sex question show based loosely on the format of MTV ' s " Loveline. " photo courtesy of WOLV-TV PUTTINGoN A SHOW Thousands of people in the Ann Arbor area watched the University ' s hockey games on Channel 22, often not realizing that students were not only playing the game, but producing it too, through the student TV station, WOLV-TV. Dorm residents received WOLV-TV, run from a studio on the ninth floor of South Quad, on Channel 70, and showed entertainment, news, and sports. Programs included " The Padded Room " and " Tom and Dan The Ride. " One of the most popular shows was " Turned On. " Like on MTV ' s " Loveline, " students watching could call in and ask questions about love and sex. The entire station was managed and staffed by University students, except for advisor Michael Clancy, who was coordinator of broadcasting for Michigan cable network. Station manager senior English major Michael Salmonowiczsaid, " The whole idea at WOLV-TV is to have students teach other students. We don ' t offer a payroll because we want students to work solely out of interest and dedica- tion, not for money. " Over 100 students were active in the station, taking on roles behind the camera as well as in front of it. One goal was to reach a wider audience, and this was achieved by broadcasting the hockey games over the internet, and work was starting on cover- ing womens ' basketball games as well. Whatever the action in front of the camera, the action behind the camera was consistent; motivated students working out of dedication. by Amanda Atherton 326 Front Row: Robbie Iran, Wasseem Abaza, Andrea Herzog, Danielle Gatewood, Jonathan Siegfried Row 2: Kelly Brickner, Lucien St. Gerard, Paul Dimusto, Martin Zmiejko, Michael Salmonowicz, Michael Clancy photo by Mike Cutri Before starting to roll tape, crew members junior education major Marty Zmiejko and recent film video graduate Jed Lasser set up a camera and headset.

In contrast, many American students of Pakistani heritage had no first-hand knowledge of their ancestral home- land. The Pakistani Students Association ' s purpose was to bring these groups together. Their other goal was to heighten the Pakistani awareness on campus. They took part in other ethnic activities, such as the Encom- pass show and Taste of Asia. One of the more important events for the group was Iqbal day. The day celebrated the life of famouse Pakistani poet Alamma Muhammad Iqbal. Members of the organization also got together for more relaxed events, like Pakistani potlucks or traditional sports like billiards. by Amanda Atherton Front Row: Laura Garchow, Wei-Pei Cherng, Desirea Alvarez, Jennifer Rivera Row 2: Karla Ramos, Mynam Rico, Laurie Clayton, Jennife r Rocha photo by Amanda Atherton Organizations 327 Front Row: Mecta Baneijee, Leslie Cook, Jason Lopresti, Heidi Lengyel Row 2: Jennifer Klem, Christopher Campernel, Sarah Shumaker photo by Amanda Atherton Executive Board - Front Row: Joshua Warsaw, Rochan Raichura, Jason Vergan, Gautam Setty Row 2: Joseph Funt, Atan Ker, Jonathan Wang, Robert Ivosse photo by Amanda Atherton 328 Front Row: Megan Rooney, Melissa Gonzalez Padron, Molly Klais, Sarah Streicker, Lakshmi Kilaru, Judith Jarnicki, Carrie Wozniak, Tara Kantner, Nicole Rappaport, Penelope Tsernoglou Row 2: Derek Grossman, Dara Iserson, Caroline Meng, Rachel Klastorin, Suzanne Grady, Bethany Kolenic, Chau-Cristiana Huynh, Arpita Bathani, Rebecca Jurva Row 3: Stephanie Sackellares, Monica Dorman, Melissa Demorest, Steven Benken, Eric Nepomuceno, Petaja Downyok, Vincent Pecora, Angela Clock, Adam Bookman, Monica Meixner, Jean Rhee, Desiree Hunter, Jaymi Kim Row 4: Brian Grafstrom, Benjamin Cooper, Nathaniel Blair, Amy McConnell, Jamila Stanton, Natalie Noyes, Christine Hammer, Robert Bargtel, Mark Rosier, Jeremy Clemans, Jason Rice, Jessica Laginess, Nicole Muscatelli, Robert Peccola photo by Amanda Atherton Students for Life Front Row: Tonya Clark, Erica Proctor, Brooke Spencer, Uchenna Obianan Row 2: Ijeoma Nnodim, Bryant Barbour, Jenese Reynolds photo by Amanda Atherton To protest legal abortion.

The group of approximately 50 members met twice a month, all sharing a common opposition to the practices of abortion, assisted suicide, and the death penalty. While this common bond brought all the members together, they remained a diverse group. Religious backgrounds from Protestant and Catholic to Messianic and Jewish, as well as both Democratic and Republican political associations allowed the group to incorporate a broad scope of viewpoints and ideas into their proceedings. The members of Students for Life were involved in many things throughout the year. On the Sunday following Roe v. Wade week, about 30 members participated in March for Life with the Michigan Right to Life Group. Volunteering was also an important part of group membership; the group volunteered twice a semester at Mott ' s Children ' s Hospital. The members also helped out the commu- nity by being phone volunteers at the Problem Pregnancy Help Center. Students for Life arranged for one major speaker to come to the University in mid-March. Also, speakers with abortion experiences came through- out the year to offer their support. Aside from these sorts of activities, there were many social events as well. Group members participated in such events as Rock and Bowl that fostered bonding within the organization. " Our mission is to reach non-typical listeners, " senior Vice President Lia Santoro expressed. Stu- dents for Life arranged for one major speaker to come to the University in mid-March.

Service and Asian awareness were the two main issues for Alpha Kappa Delta Phi. They referred to themselves as an Asian-American Interest Sorority, and they consisted of 1 7 active members, all Asian women. Members met weekly to discuss activities that would help their cause, as well as to socialize. A few of the non-service events sponsored by AKDP were self-defense classes and rape-aware- ness forums, all focusing on the issus as pertaining to Asian women. " The opportunity to organize all of these events, to take on that leadership, is the best part of being involved in Alpha Kappa, " senior computer science major Heather Liu said. Alpha Kappa Delta Phi took part in many local service events too, often co-sponsoring them with other Asian groups on campus to unite the University ' s Asian population. These events included work with the Knitwits, Ronald McDonald House, and Habitat for Humanity. The main event for the sorority, however, was the Annual Breast Cancer Charity Ball. Breast cancer is the philanthropic cause for the organization nationally, since it is an issue that affects many Asian and Asian-American women. The ball raises money for the Susan G. Komen breast cancer fund. The fund sponsors the Race for the Cure and has raised more than $240 for breast cancer since 1982. by Amanda Atherton 330 Front Row: Dora Kuo, Joyce Chang, Heather Liu, Suki Kuang, Miranda Chan, Wendy Wong Row 2: Susm Kan, Cathy Chao.

The students gave two or three informal performances throughout the year, photo courtesy of 58 Greene Committed to spreading positivity, diversity, and heterogeneity through music and performance, 58 Greene was one of the University ' s co-ed a cappella groups. Their mission was to maintain a strong connection with the multi-cultural community be- cause of their continued support, and to strive to reflect that connection in their music and perfor- mance venues, as well as the attitude of the mem- bers. However, that was not all of what 58 Greene was about. " 58 Greene was also a group of friends that was all about having fun and just jammin, " said senior Spanish major Aroosha Rana. The group sang songs by artists such as Sting, Dido, Shakira, Jamiraquaim and many more. They turned songs that you hated into songs that you loved. " The music that we made together repre- sents the unique blend that our individual person- alities bring to the group. We all came to the group sharing a common desire to sing, yet we were all very different, " added Rana.

The crowd was amazing... it was great being a part of an enriching, colorful display of culture. " Rana, who graduated at the end of the year, knew that leaving 58 Greene would not be easy to do. " I envisioned the group as an extension of my own family and after I left, I did not quite know how to handle going through my Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays without rehearsals to keep me busy. As director of 58 Greene, Rana took pride in the group and truly believed the quality of musicianship and integrity of individuals that 58 Greene repre- sented continued to out do itself each year. by Caroline Meng Front Row: Catherine Dacpano, Lisa Hammond, Larissa Heap, Steve Kang Row 2: Serene Arena, Mandisa Moseley, Amit Pandya, Neeru Khanna Row 3: Aaron Moul, Tony Muka, Aroosha Rana, Ryan Babbitt, Jessica Smith, Luke Williams photo by Mike Cutri Organizations 333 AN STUDEN Senior organizational studies major Tom Charron and junior political science major Trevor Torrence cheer for their team at the Northwest- ern football game.

However, the students had an ally in the Student Alumni Council. The council peppered the year with special events to spice up the school year. Homecoming, Parents Weekend and senior days helped break up the monotony of the year. With nearly 60 members, the Student Alumni Council used traditional methods and new, innovative ones to get alumni more involved. The council focused on publicity and orga- nizational skills, both of which led to more aware- ness among students and alumni alike. During Homecoming, the Diag was filled with inflatable obstacle courses, dancing wind people, as well as people passing out temporary tattoos. As students trekked to class, volunteers handed them 334 Front Row: Janelle Marshall, Chantel McEldowney, Thomas Charron, Kate Crone, Lisa Yang, Marcia Stabryla, Diane Chen, Katie Den Bleyker, Meredith Palen, Ehse Freimuth, Nancy Short Row 2: Elizabeth Haynes, Allison Sapsford, Kristen Saari, Eva Strickler, Julie Osborne, Carrie Rheingans, Bethany Root, Ellen Cooper, Jacquelene Smith, Janet Hodges, Amish Patel, Albert Kim, Niraj Patel, Kelly Birchmeier Row 3: Caroline Randall, Ken Blochowski, Trevor Torrence, Bradley Cardon, Michael Kaluzny, Matthew Burns, Ross Wienert, Daniel Coppens, Kathryn Rehrauer, Aaron Yaffa, Brian TSui, Lori Burke photo by Mike Cutri schedules of the events of the week as well as free food. The council put countless hours into organiz- ing various performances, as well as getting the word out to alumni around the world. A major way of communicating with such alumni was via the council ' s website. In addition, it was possible to sign up for " The Scoop, " a bi-weekly e-mail newsletter that supplied up to date information on the happen- ings at the University as well as in Ann Arbor. The Student Alumni Council not only gave stu- dents valuable experience in organization and public relations; it also provided many physical and social outlets.

Approximately 60 women, ranging from first year students to gradu- ate students and covering a wide range of majors extending far beyond music, met twice a week and performed every semester under the direction of conductor Sandra Snow. The music was typically written by 20th century female composers or clas- sical. The Women ' s Glee Club participated in many choral events throughout the year, including ex- changes with Michigan State University and Ohio State University and their first international tour, which included cathedrals in England, France and the Netherlands and occurred in the spring. An- other first happened in the fall, when the annual fall concert was held in the University Museum of Art.

The women also participated in Women ' s Vocal Arts Day, an event sponsored by the University that attracted students from high schools all over the state to attend workshops on campus. Members of the group would also wake up early on football Satur- days and travel down to the stadium to serenade tailgating fans as a fundraiser. The Harmonettes, a subset of the Glee Club, was an a cappella group comprised of 1 0-1 2 club mem- bers. This group performed at a variety of smaller venues as well as with other campus a cappella groups and guests from other colleges. However, the Glee Club members did not just work; there was plenty of play over the course of the year to keep spirits high and members bonded, like pizza nights at Cottage Inn and movie nights.

The group planned events for Kinesiology students throughout the year, photo courtesy of Kinesiology Student Government The Kinesiology Student Government was com- prised of 12 students that represented the student voice in matters with the University and the depart- ment of Kinesiology. The organization promoted and sponsored numerous events to benefit the students of Kinesiology. With a web site, a bulletin board, and an e-mail address for concerns and suggestions, the student body government stayed in tune with the needs and wants of students. The group organized many events that helped Kinesiology students earn more money for pro- grams. Some events that were sponsored dealt with important issues that concerned society, like guest speaker Dave Palone, an umpire who was shunned by professional baseball after he confessed his homosexuality. Other events promoted good study habits like Midterm Study Break and Final Frenzy Study Break. The student government helped the community of Ann Arbor when they adopted fami- lies at Christmas. They also worked with the Sport Business Association and Physical Education Club on various events together. Senior sports manage- ment major and President Kelly Vaughn, said, " The main reason I got involved with Kinesiology student government is the potential our government has 338 Front Row: Shaunette Smith, Knstine Smith, Bakara Lewis, Stacy Lerchenfeld, Jessica Imbordme Row tt2: Paul Issac, Nicole Proulx, Kelly Vaughn, Sarah North, Toby Scott, Marcus Brock photo by Audra Rowley and its immense ability to improve our division for the students. I thoroughly enjoy representing the student body, and I think everyone in our govern- ment does a wonderful job accomplishing our goals. " The student government designed Kinesiology t- shirts, planned Martin Luther King day events and also worked with the University on some policy changes and renovations that were set to occur in the Central Campus Recreational Building, North Campus Recreational Building, and the Intramural Building. Junior Stacy Lerchenfield, also a sports management major said, " This involves a lot of input as a student as representatives of the entire Kinesiology Student Body since the Kinesiology offices and many classrooms are housed in the CCRB. Any changes in the CCRB have impacts upon the Kinesiology students in many ways. They change our learning environment and affected access to the building among other issues. " With Marcus Brooks as the faculty advisor, The Ki nesiology student government provided signifi- cant support for the students via many programs and events.

Meetings usually took place in the Kuenzel room, though the location changed every eight weeks.

Mott Children ' s Hospital and William Beaumont Hospital in 2000, all of which goes to pediatric rehabilitation programs. The marathon, held at the Indoor Track and Field Building, lasted 30 hours, during which over 200 volunteer dancers were required to stay on their feet the entire time without caffeine or knowing the time. However, the mara- thon was actually a year long process, and there were many more people involved beyond the dancers. In addition to registration fees, dancers were asked to fulfill another volunteering requirement. Dancers were organized into teams who had the option of being a Family Team, a Mott Team or a Combination Team. Family Teams were assigned one of the families that would actually benefit from Dance Marathon, and often visited the home of the DANCE MARATHON 342 Front Row: Elizabeth Walker, Dayna Santoro, Anjali Shah, Nihar Kanodia, Dorothy Lee, Rupal Shah, Sarah Greene, Vikram Sarma, Kush Goyal Row 2: Ava Lala, Rebecca Laper, Sarah Shumaker, Erin Perrone, Carolyn Eichenhorn, Lora Hesch, Jamie Loundy, Lauren Gibbs, Lauren Rubinfeld, Jennifer Zorko, Annelise Waterfall Row 3: Eric Hyun, Robert Roe.

Mott Teams volunteered at the hospital doing things like arts and crafts with the kids. Combination Teams did both. Many volunteer Moralers were necessary to keep dancers going for the duration of the marathon. Moralers did things like give them backrubs and keep them entertained doing arts and crafts like making koosh balls. Student groups like 58 Greene and IASA performed throughout, and corporate sponsors showed up to give away promotional items and offer support. The kids who benefited from the programs also came to the marathon to interact with participants. Senior communications major and DM external director Ava Lala commented, " there was one kid who couldn ' t walk when we started, he was in such bad shape, but every year we saw him doing so much better. Now he can walk, and hiswholefamily comes ... you really get to see the effects of what you ' re doing. " Students dance inside the Track and Field building during Dance Marathon.

Tsutsumi became a recognizable site around campus during his campaign, carrying around his trademark posterboard sign, photo by Ah Melber The Michigan Student Assembly, or MSA, was the central student government body for University students. The purpose was to keep student con- cerns and issues in the forefront of University ad- ministration. Th ey worked to protect student rights, which included a " House Party Handbook " inform- ing students of their legal rights when dealing with the police at parties, written with the help of the campus chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union. Throughout the course of each semester MSA distributed $200,000 in funding to student groups and worked closely with the Office of the Vice President of Student Affairs to represent the student body to the Board of Regents. President Hideki Tsutsumi, famous on campus ADERS for his extended campaign for off ice which included a sandwich board sign and a goal of meeting as many students as possible, led the large student group. Any student was welcome to be a part of the general assembly, and even invited to join commis- sions and committees to actively participate in MSA. The government reached goals by division into commissions, committees and task forces which specialized in an issue pertinent to the University community. Commissions included the Minority Affairs Commission and the Peace and Justice Com- mission. Five internal committees helped the orga- nization itself run smoothly, and task forces were formed to address more time-specific issues. by Bethany Kolenic Michigan Student Assembly representa- tives listen attentively to a speaker.

Whether one ' s major was business, psychology, engineering, or something else, the common bond all members shared was an interest in the field of business. A main focus of the co-ed fraternity was to help its members hone their professional skills, allowing them to enter the workforce with confidence.

From volunteering at the Ronald McDonald house to serving thanksgiving dinner, many philanthropic activities were performed each semester. New to the fraternity ' s fare of activities this year were campus-wide events. Held to benefit the student body as a whole, AKPsi organized a panel to speak about the b-school and answer questions, coming to the aid of students trying to plan their futures at the University.

The fraternity maintained tradition and respect in the Greek community. Phi Alpha Kappa was nicknamed the " Dutch House " because historically most mem- bers came from Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Despite expanded regional representation, the nickname re- mained. The fraternity had 21 members who lived in the fraternity ' s house on Ann Street. Members participated in other Christian organizations as well as many social activities like intramural sports and commu- nity service. The fraternity had a wide range of members and interests; from first-year engineering students to second year architecture graduate students, members enjoyed building bonds of brotherhood as they learned from one another. President Josh Visser said, " Whether participating in house Bible studies or just hanging out and having fun, members of Phi Alpha Kappa find themselves in a house that both chal- lenges them to grow as people and provides them with an affordable and enjoyable home.

" Their commitment to bettering the University was evident from programs like " PROFS, " or " Pro- fessors Reaching Out For Students, " a luncheon lecture series, and " Beyond the Classroom Walls, " a program that invited incoming first year students to get involved on campus. They were involved with the Adopt a Child holiday event, Dance Marathon fundraisers, and Alternative Weekend service trips. Plans for the future included a student group field day and a University-wide Diag social. Pandya continued, " There is definitely both a social and a service aspect to the group... we all love doing service for the University community and the community at large.

They set up sign language classes, closed-captioned movies, support groups for the deaf and hard of hearing in the local commu- nity, particularly at local high schools, and devel- oped classes and forums for others to learn about the rights and culture of the deaf community. They supported students with any type of hearing loss, advising on how to solve problems arising from communication difficulties. Members mentored a deaf middle school student and honored and recog- HEARING IMPAIRED STUDENT ORGANIZATION nized any outstanding volunteer work in their field as part of supporting community efforts. However, senior economics major John Machiorlatti insisted that it was first and foremost a social group, which was just as important, consid- ering most deaf or hard of hearing students have gone through mainstream programs and may not know any other students like themselves. " One of the greatest things about this organization is that when we get together, a person feels very comfort- able. You can talk about experiences with people like you, and you can share things you thought no one else understood. " by Bethany Kolenic Front Row: Ivette Robinson, John Machiorlatti.

With more than 200 members, not all of them students, weekly meetings were held to organize events, present issues, or just talk. LSA junior Lanni Lantto said, " Our main goal is to dispel the myth that ' femi- nism ' is a dirty word, and to show that not all the stereotypes about us are true. " While LSA graduate Christine Lentz recalled, " We ' ve really had a lot more guys come to our meetings this year. They really get into the events we are planning and have great ideas from a male perspective. I think men are starting to realize that what we are doing benefits them also.

The team earned two top-10 race finished in the past five years. photo courtesy of Solar Car Team The University of Michigan ' s Solar Car Team began formulating its sixth generation car this year. The team consisted of a group of University students who designed, built, tested and raced their solar- powered vehicle against other crafts from around the world. After ten years of progressive develop- ment, the University boasted two top ten finishes within the past five years, on both the national and world levels. The team consisted of students from all branches of the University, as designing and building responsibilities were coupled with market- ing, promoting and sponsorship needs. Project man- ager Nader Shwayhat, a mechanical engineering graduate student, attested, " In the past few months, the team has accomplished a tremendous amount ' E FINISH of research, fundraising, and design objectives. " The Sunrayce in the U.S. and the World Solar Challenge in Australia were the two primary com- petitions the University team entered. The races took place over several days, so the team ' s strategy was to remain well below top speed of over 100 mph in order to avoid wear (and abide by the speed limit). The Wolverine was the name of the 1997 model and was a foundation for the present mod- els. The car weighed less than one third of a typical gas-guzzler, but construction costs exceeded $750,000. The team relied upon donations of both money and materials from benefactors and spon- sors, as assembly would be otherwise impossible. by Eric Rajala Front Row: Michael Yagley, Thomas Liu, Rahul Sathe, Christian Striffler, Saaj Shah, Kristin Misangyi, Kimberly Lytle, Michele Goe, Chitra Laxmanan, Melissa Chen, Xiao Liang, Kirthika Veluchamy, Kent Chiu Row 2: Samuel Wintermute, Adam Sloan, Joel Baldwin, Mark Eadie, Albert McCreary, Shannon Flowers, Christopher Grijaha, Jeffrey Chen, Deanna Hence, David Rizik, Ashley Milne, Kevin Corcoran Row 3: Alicia Frostick, Benjamin York, Daniel Kurikesu, Brian Jackson, Benjamin Chess, Eric Carlson, Joe Lombat, Jason Kramb, Adriaan Zuiderweg, Ahmir Rashid, Richard Shuma, Gregory Thompson, Christopher Deline, Nader Shwayhat photo by Mike Cutri Organizations 353 Junior Lincoln Gillett sings at a concert with fellow group members.

The objectives of the society revolved around public awareness of women in engineering. The group served as a reference center for women seeking to pursue careers in the field. Engineering was illus- trated as not only a vital part of the job force but as a source of improvement to the quality of modern life, as well. Women have made great strides in this field, and the Society of Women Engineers sought to promote these achievements and encourage others to aspire to such heights. The group ' s key issues were leadership, educa- tion, diversity, visibility and resources. As leaders in engineering, women had the opportunities to as- cend to important decision-making positions. Edu- cation encouraged young women to begin studying 354 Front Row: Marissa Bayman, Kristin Derwich, Jill Peterson, Courtney Cagnon, Linh Luong, Laura Mendricks Row 2: Jodi Miller, Kirsten Thomson, Evelyn Rahhal, Tazi Pruitt, Lisa Chutorash, Kristin Rorick photo by Susan Chalmers engineering and allowed existing scholars to de- velop their talents. The society took pride in its diversity, as absolutely everyone was recognized as having the potential to achieve. In visibility, the group sought to promote itself and its platform. Pursuit of resources involved funding for various projects. Members at the University profited from their experience in this group of ambitious young women. Junior Laura Mendricks, the Pre-lnterview Commit- tee Student Coordinator, said, " Involvement in the Society of Women Engineers is going to help pre- pare me for my career and allow me to explore my potential to the fullest extent. " The products of this group would surely benefit society as a whole, steadily working to improve the state of women in the workforce and the quality of engineers available to employers, by Eric Rajala The Compulsive Lyres gather at a group member ' s house over the holidays to exchange gifts.

As a liaison between young humanitarians and organizations in need of their assistance, Project Serve was responsible for providing many willing volunteers with a destination. Two former stu- dents presided over a group of 70 students who were involved in the planning and execution of various community service projects including Alternative Spring Break, tutoring at el- ementary and high schools all over the area, working with Habitat for Humanity and volunteering at soup kitchens. Alternative Weekends were held every two weeks, students travelled as far as Chicago and Detroit on service projects. In December Project Serve adopted a family and provided them with an unforgettable Christmas, including presents delivered by University football players. Junior psychology major Yvonne Humenay, an office employee, commented " It ' s cool because first of all you ' re doing something to help, and also because everyone involved is just so nice and close-knit, it ' s a great crowd.

The group provided inexpensive ads for local and campus organizations, photo by Abby Johnson Despite the booming advertising business in America, the University did not offer an Advertising major specifically. That was why LSA senior Sheela Reddy started Imagine Advertising, a chapter of the American Advertising Federation, last year. In the fall the club expanded into a student-run advertis- ing agency where members got hands on experi- ence in the creativity and business of advertising. Imagine aimed to bring together students who were interested in pursuing careers in advertising or advertising-related fields while simultaneously pro- moting the value of advertising to the campus community. Furthermore, Reddy pointed out that the Imag- Group members discuss advertising strategies during a meeting. Imagine Advertising was a chapter of the American Advertising Federation, photo by Abby Johnson N ine not only provided inexpensive ads for local and campus organizations ($15 to $20 per ad cam- paign) but also, " gave its members a real sense of accomplishment. When you walk across campus and you see your ideas reproduced in banners and posters, it is amazing.

PSGC was composed of three students from each class and one student from each of the MSA registered pharmacy student organizations. Respon- sibilities included lobbying for the interests of stu- dents, organizing and funding student projects and activities, and serving the judicial system as it per- tained to student conduct. However, PSGC also had more laid back activities including barbeques, picnics, formal dances, gatherings at restaurants in Ann Arbor, Rock-n-Bowl, and the Pharmacy Bash. The events were set up to relieve the students from stress and also to provide a social scene for them so they could get to know each other better.

" PSGC also served as the Honor Council for the College of Pharmacy. The Honor Council had the responsibility of investigating cases and holding hearings when alleged cheating had occurred. Dr. Eddie Boyd acclaimed, " The amount of effort the students expend and the seriousness with which they had handled cases has been quite impressive. " Boyd went on and explained how the students took a " no nonsense " approach to handling the cases, making sure that the accused students rights to " due process " were not violated. Lindsey Pontius, second year p harmacy student, exclaimed, " My experience at the College of Pharmacy and in PSGC has definitely been a positive one.

Sophomore economics and American culture major Ayumu Urata enjoyed being a part of JSA.

The group partici- pated in many University community activities throughout the year, photo courtesy of Zeta Sigma Chi Zeta Sigma Chi was a multicultural sorority that recently started in January 1999. The sorority started with nine women who wanted something different on the University ' s campus, not being satisfied with the Greek sororities on campus. They felt like they needed more diversity and unity which led them to form Zeta Sigma Chi. Regina Cow, a nursing stu- dent in her senior year, explained, " ZSC was defi- nitely an organization that was trying to not only bring women together in sisterhood, but everyone as a community. " However, making this dream come true took a lot of hard work and dedication. Finally on November 14, 1999, the ladies were finally recognized as sisters of the first and only multicultural sorority, Zeta Sigma Chi, on the University ' s campus. Activities of Zeta Sigma Chi included participa- tion in the University ' s Welcome week, Ghandi ' s Day of Service, clothing donations to the Purple Heart of Ann Arbor, Martin Luther King ' s day sym- posium, and helping out at the Ann Arbor Hands on Museum. They also spent their time helping out with bucket drives for the Unicorn ' s Children Foun- dation, which was their philanthropy. The Unicorn Children ' s Foundation was a non-profit organiza- tion that provided help and guidance to kids who have disabilities in learning and communication. The sisters of Zeta Sigma Chi were close in friendship and sisterhood. When senior cultural anthropology major Tracey Dreyton first joined she thought, " The women at the open house were so warm and friendly. They just made me feel like they really wanted me to be a part of their organization . " Dreyton was not the only one who felt this way. Junior Nicole Rappaport, sociology and english major, said, " The day I became a Z-Chi. The feeling was indescribable, and I ' d have to say it was the best day of my college career.

The team competed in the CCLA Semi-final in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. photo courtesy of Sean Keenan The theme of Michigan lacrosse since its inception 10 years ago has been one of perpetual improve- ment. Each year, the team has managed to achieve more than what was expected of an infant program competing against teams with storied traditions. In 2001, the Michigan Men ' s Lacrosse team had a roster to rehabilitate following a fulfilling campaign in the previous season. Head Coach John Paul returned for his fourth season at the reigns. Joining him on the sidelines at Oosterbaan Field House were Goalie Coach Gil Leaf and Assistant Coaches Tony DiGiovanni and Jeff Hess. Captain Jeff Hadwin, a thunderous 200 Ib. senior, prepared to lead the team of 35 in his final season. He was reunited with former starters Micah Veith and Kevin Chan, who sat out the 2000 season. The 2000 season was considered both a success and a disappointment for the Wolverines, who overachieved and drew attention in the national championship tournament but felt that a couple of close games throughout the campaign could have easily gone in their favor. Ranked seventh in the nation at the beginning of the season, the Wolver- ines clobbered their Big Ten foes but dropped competitive matches to higher-ranked Brigham 362 Front Row: Gil Leaf, Chris Sigalais, Sloan Buchan-McGilliard, Dave DiCamitto, Tom Burns, Wesley Martus, Jeff Hadwin, Micah Veith, Kevin Chan, Ben Herbst, Dave Bernard, Greg Deutch, Jeremy Meakowitz, John Paul Row 2: Jeff Hess, Kevin Keenan, Peter Lund, Jeff Hanna, Jason Gratson, Sooman Kim, Jerry Perez, Andy Vilardo, Howie Fugate, John Schwartz, Ryan Peters, Matt Bernard, Charles Appel, John Morgan Row 3: Nichole Samzcyk.

Convincing wins over other programs earned the men ' s team a fifth seed in the national tour nament in St. Louis. They were defeated in the second round after an epic struggle with Colorado State and relegated to the consola- tion bracket, where they split their remaining two games. Sophomore goalie Jeremy Menkowitz stated, " Even though we didn ' t win ourselves the champi- onship, this was a great run to be a part of. I ' m proud to be on this squad. " Jeff Hadwin was named to the All-Tournament first team. Senior Dan Jurneycic received second team honors. Newcomers to the squad and returning players alike shared enthusiasm about the immediate fu- ture of the team. Dedication and a strong work ethic were essential components of the team ' s hinging success. Entering his first season with the Wolverines, sophomore Jason Charo pronounced, " This team is all business on the field. We go out there with a job to do. " Coach Paul declared, " We are confident that this program will continue to improve every year. A lot of people are looking to us as the team that may eventually defeat the Western teams in the final four, and we ' d like to prove them right.

A bunch of dorky guys standing around practicing scales? Well, the University ' s Men ' s Glee Club was quite the opposite of that stereotype. Founded in 1859, they were the second-oldest collegiate chorus in the United States and the oldest continuously run student organization at the Uni- versity. They traveled the world and they are also really cool guys. Said Adam Rosenwasser, a first- year RC LSA student, " The Men ' s Glee Club is a bunch of crazy singing fools. We make awesome music and have many good times. ..and damn, we look good in those tuxes! " Many other members of the organization shared Rosenwasser ' s opinion.

The Men ' s Glee Club was about having fun, but of course the men worked very hard. Auditions were held twice a year, and the organization was conducted by Dr. Jerry Blackstone. Partly due to the conductor, the glee club upheld its outstanding reputation of representing many different genres of music, and was also the first male chorus to win first place at the International Music Eisteddfod in Llangollen, Wales. Aside from all of their outstanding accomplish- ments, T.J. Mass had a more philosophical explana- tion about the organization. " Glee Club, in my opinion, epitomizes what the University is all about.

Four Ensian staff members spent the holiday in Orlando, Florida, to cover the Citrus Bowl, photo courtesy of the Michiganensian REMEMBERING THE YEAR Seeing the lights burning late into the night inside the Student Publications Building was a sure sign the staff of the Michiganensian was hard at work finishing up a deadline. As the official yearbook of the University for over 100 years, the 45 member staff worked to create a book that would capture the memories, friendships and events that charac- terized the year. In its 1 05th year of production, the editorial staff was led by junior graphic design major Nathan Busch. The non-profit organization was one of the only student publications in the country that did not have a faculty advisor. The freedom of the staff to function without a faculty member looking over their shoulder gave the publication as well as the staff a unique flavor. " The Ensian is much more than a job. The office is my place to study, my place to hang out and my place to recover from late nights andtoomuch partying, " sharedjunior environmen- tal policy and behavior major Jayme Love, " of all my Junior Copy Editor Bethany Kolenic reads over stories in the office. Staff members spent many long hours in the office in order to meet all the deadlines, photo courtesy of the Michiganensian fondest memories at school, the Ensian makes up most of them. " In addition to producing a 464 page book, students were charged with managing finances and a budget as well. The business staff was directed by senior history major Bonnie Gold. Staff members had many different backgrounds and reasons for joining staff. " I joined because of a positive experience on my high school yearbook staff. At first I felt a little uncomfortable and shy, but everyone made me feel right at home, " stated junior biology major Rob McTear. " Photography has always been a hobby of mine, " offered junior biopsychology major Abby Johnson. " The Ensian has given me some very valuable work experience, " Whether they were working on deadlines in their office or socializing at a staff member ' s house on the weekends, the Ensian was a significant part of each staff member ' s college experience. by Nathan Busch Juniors Evan Busch, Jayme Love and Nathan Busch relax during the Ensian holiday party held at Good Time Charley ' s.

Throughout the year the staff carried on the traditions of years past. " We go everywhere and do everything that major papers do, " commented editor in chief Geoff Gagnon. During the campaign season, The Daily man- agedtosnag interviews with thelikesof former Vice President Al Gore, former Presidential candidate John McCain, and Vice President Dick Cheney. They even interviewed President George W. Bush during the primaries. The Daily was the first publication to come out with the news of the University breaking its contract with controversial sportswear supplier Nike. They also came out with a special edition of the paper this last December breaking the news of a Bush confir- mation to the University community. In addition, The Daily had social functions for its staff including their annual game versus The State News, which took place before the Michigan Michi- gan State football game this fall.

People quickly realized that the warm weather would not last long, as the blistering winter came quickly to Michigan. photo by Michelle Sohn GRADUATES EXPLAIN WHAT IT WAS LIKE WHEN THEY HAD TO START ALL OVER AND -r MAKE NEW FRIENDS By the final few years of college, most University students had formed close bonds with a group of friends without whom their experience would have been entirely different. Despite the variety of events, clubs and restaurants unique to Ann Arbor, stu- dents agreed that without their friends those expe- riences would have been somewhat hollow. Senior cell and molecular biology major Sam Lahidji grew up in Irvine, California. The summer before his first year at the University his family moved to Ann Arbor, making it difficult to maintain his friendships from high school. " Thesummer after freshman year everyone left. I randomly made friends with one guy who had gone to Pioneer [High School], and he introduced me to his friends from high school. Before long we were all hanging out and I felt like they were my friends from high school, too. " Lahidji agreed that his college experience would have been very different without the group of friends he acquired. The college years were some of the most forma- tive in a person ' s life, a time during which they discovered things about themselves and changed from adolescents to adults. Caroline Gregory, se- nior organizational studies major mused, " The true friends that I have made throughout my four years at the University have helped me find out what I am truly about. I can now say that the saying ' you are who your friends are ' is very true, and that I am happy to have found such great friends that have helped me shape who I am and enabled me to be proud of what I will become. " Whether it blossomed out of shared hatred for a common class, a mutual dorm freshman year, main- tained from high school, convenient or lasting, friendship was a crucial factor in determining the experience a student had and memories they would take with them from the University.

They had reached the point where their college years were quickly becoming the recent past and their careers were becoming the impending future. Looking back at their time at the University, many seniors recalled things they wished they had done, and things they would suggest to new University students. " I wish I had decided what I wanted to do earlier in my academic career; that ' s why I ' m a general studies major, " LSA student Rene Torres said rue- fully. " I should have gotten more involved with student organizations, but I didn ' t think they were for me. " " I wish I would have taken advantage of more opportunities, " American culture senior Elissa Kneche confessed. " I should have studied abroad. ..I wish I would have. " Senior business school student Jordan Goodman echoed Kneche ' s and Torres ' sentiments. " I wish I would h ave gotten involved earlier, " he admitted. " I consider myself pretty involved right now, but as a freshman I didn ' t do much. I didn ' t participate in many activities. There are so many opportunities on campus; it ' s a great way to be a part of something and get your name out there. " As far as words of wisdom to younger students, the seniors ' answers were themed similarly. " Go to class! " Kneche emphasized, whileTorres suggested, " Work hard and never give up! " Goodman went into a bit more detail. " Michi- gan has so much to offer, " he said. " Get to know your professors, because they ' re incredibly knowledgeable on a wealth of subjects. By not taking advantage of that, you ' re really limiting yourself. " " And don ' t drink too much! " he laughed. " En- joy your time here, have fun, but don ' t waste it. College is supposed to be the best four years of your life. If you ' re studying 24 hours a day, seven days a week, you ' re going to miss it. But if you party all the time, you ' re wasting your college experience. Find the best balance for you in terms of academics and social life.

Seniors spent less time doing classwork and more time having fun in an effort to make the most of their year. photo by Ari Melber MANY SENIORS CATCH SENIORITIS AT THE ON- SETOFTHEIR LAST YEAR AND PROCRASTINATE UNTIL , , THE LAST MINUTE It was what all of the underclassmen pon- dered in their years spent at the University: what does it feel like to be a senior? What does it feel like to know that in just a few more months, there would be no limits to what could be conquered out in the r eal world? It was time to test the knowledge and skills learned in years leading up to the long awaited event of college graduation. As senior Miriam Imperial, pre-dental major, said, " It ' s scary to think that I ' m actually going to have to pay for bills, food and other things. I ' m going to actually have to work for money, not just ' play ' money. " At the same time, most seniors agreed that they were getting the most they could out of the tail end of what many considered the best years of their lives. Skipping classes became regular habit and sleep- ing late was nothing but the ordinary. " You go to class as much as you can get yourself to go and you do what you have to do to get by and pass with a decent grade, but you don ' t stress about it because the grades don ' t matter enough to worry about them. Then, you go out to the bar on random Tuesdays sometimes and always try to rally for Thursday nights, " claimed senior Teresa Bess, orga- nizational studies major. Senior Latino studies major CristinaMcCullough agreed with the limited amount of studying and schoolwork done by seniors. " I ' ve already tried to return five or six of my books because I just didn ' t feel like reading them and figured it would be one less thing to pay on my credit card. " Overall, the popularity of partying, sleeping late, skipping classes, writing papers at the last minute and worrying about the future could be summed up in one word: senioritis. Although as each senior left the University on graduation day on a path leading in a different direction, all had one thing in com- mon. Their years spent at the University would be remembered for a lifetime and all had at least been in some way affected by the ever-popular disease, senioritis.

However, many senors spent their spring breaks going to interviews or looking for jobs, photo by Ari Mel be r GRADUATES PLAN AND PREPARE EAR LY FORTHE TIMEWHENTHEYMUST LEAVE COLLEGE AND ENTER T , T THE REAL WORLD For some University seniors, after four or more years of partying, living with friends and leading relatively carefree lives, the idea of being cast loose into the " real world " was a harsh and frightening dose of reality. For others, it was a relief, a chance to become economically independent adults. But no matter how the seniors approached the situa- tion, one thing was inevitable: as graduation loomed, they had to begin looking for permanent jobs. " I ' m looking at everything, " said Blair Lorimer, a senior engineering student. " I ' ve gone to inter- views for jobs I know I ' m qualified for, and some that I don ' t think I ' m at all qualified for. " Lorimer said that he had used pretty much every method of finding a job available, including Web sites, career fairs, networking through friends and talking to businesses that visited the College of Engineering. Many students had a preference for working n ear their hometown or working in a different state to expand their horizons, but Lorimer was indiffer- ent on the subject of location. " I ' m looking for jobs wherever; I don ' t really care where they ' re at, " he said. " It ' s more important that I get a job. " Senior sociology major Scott McDaniels had also been making the most of the available job re- sources. " I ' ve been working through Resume Ex- press, Career Planning and Placement, all the Internet sites, " heexplained. " Iwanttostayin-state.around the Detroit area. ..or maybe around Chicago. " Jeff Crawford, a senior majoring in resource ecology and management, was uncertain about his career plans. " The job market for my major isn ' t too great for people without a Master ' s, " he said. " So I suppose [I ' ll be going to] grad school. My ultimate job goal is to run around in the woods and get paid for it, " he continued. " Paid pretty poorly, no doubt, but oh well ! I ' d rather be happy than rich at a desk job. " Although finding a job was a daunting task, it was apparent that most seniors were already scour- ing the job market for a suitable career.

However, it was known that the seniors could take a joke and that in the end it was all fun and games. In sororities it was common for the pledges to prank the sorority house. Chelsea Roseman, an undecided first-year student living in Sigma Delta Tau, said that her pledge class had pulled a great prank to their older sisters living in the house when they were pledges. " We took all their clothes and laid them across the front lawn while they were sleeping and taped all their doors shut so they could not get out of their rooms in the morning. " However, pranks were not only pulled in sorori- ties. It had been common on campus for people to prank their teachers also. The pranks were not known to be as mean as some of the other ones that were done to students, but they tended to serve their purpose. Chris Roath, a senior majoring in political science said, " One day, while my teacher was out of the room, I think that this was freshmen year, we changed his discussion to a sexual one. He read it without even noticing what he was reading. " It was important on campus to keep the seniors on their toes. It was necessary at times to put the upperclassmen in their place and make sure they realized that they had not graduated yet. Students wanted to have fun, and pulling pranks on each other was one way for them to come together and do something exciting.
