By working together and supporting one another we were abletoovercomeeach obstacle to meet every challenge.

We were outraged when the much-anticipated Naked Mile was thwarted by authorities and exploited by the media. With friends we celebrated milestone birth- days, making the rounds from Good Time Charley ' s to Mitch ' s and Conor O ' Neil ' s. As leaves fell from the trees we played frisbee in the Arboretum and drank apple cider at the local orchards. Streets flooded with maize and blue on home game days as we made our way to the Big House with 1 1 0,000 of our closest friends. As always, ghouls and goblins of the craziest kind appeared to celebrate Halloween " Michi- gan Style To break up the monotony of classes, we donned boots and hats and paja- mas for theme parties that were thrown throughout the year. We came together to muddle through the lows of the year, and we came together to celebrate the highs of the year. We came together to support our friends. 10 | Michigan Life Donning their best maize and blue, a group of students cheer on the foot- ball team at the Il- linois game.

For many first-year students, resident hall life gave them their first taste of freedom. photo by Krislen Stoner Before the trials and tribulations of classes, homework and exams even began, there was another obstacle for students returning to Ann Arbor for the school year: moving in. For incoming students moving into the residence halls, the transition could be chaotic. Although the University ' s housing Web site provided tips on what to bring and how to move, many first-year students still found the experience overwhelming. " Everyone was everywhere; you never really knew what was going on, " said Tim Holman, a first-year engineering student. " There ' s only so much room in your dorm, so you can ' t have everything you want. You can ' t bring everything from your own room. " During residence hall move-in, students and parents realized how exhausting future college moves would prove to be. " It took a lot longer than I thought it would, " said Emily Fox, an undeclared first-year student. Despite the lengthy move in, however, Fox still said the process was " fairly smooth. " For students living in houses and apartments, moving in carried even more responsibility. Not only did they have to take time to locate and choose a suitable place to live, but once they arrived, there were phone lines and utilities to set up and landlords to deal with. " It took me forever, " said Michelle Stocker, a junior geology major who moved into her first off-campus house in the fall. " My parents were here until 1 :30 a.m. I didn ' t have any food to start off with, so I had to go to Meijer ' s, and that took a long time. I didn ' t really know what I was supposed to be bringing, because I didn ' t know what was left after everybody else had moved out. " As a piccolo player in the marching band, Stocker had help from fellow band members while moving into her residence hall rooms during her first two years. " This time, it was just us, " she said. " There wasn ' t anyone to do it with you, show you the ropes. " Saad Siddiqui, a business administration junior, also moved into hisfirst apartment last fall. " When you go in the dorms, everything ' s ready for you: your phone, your cable, your Internet connection, stuff like that, " he said. " All you have to do is try and fit in all your stuff. Moving into an apartment has a ton of other responsibilities. You have to set up everything from scratch. " Sophomore history major Patrick Alach found that moving into hisfirst apartment waseasierthan residence hall life, especially since his housemates already had all the utilities set up. " It wasn ' t a big rush, " he explained. " In the dorms, there ' s a couple hundred of people in there trying to get their stuff in at once. The house is pretty low-key, just a couple of guys, so it ' s a lot smoother. " Whether students were first-years or seniors, on-campus or off-campus residents, moving in was one part of college life that was as unavoidable as final exams, huge lecture classes, term papers and moving out. p v Port-now Michigan Life | 13 Standing tall and full of pride, three engineer- ing graduates pose for a picture down on the field.

Thousands of students sat together united as a class for the first time. Together they sat and remembered the years they had given the University. Together they reflected on the crazy times, lazy times, sad times, and all the times in between. A gentle breeze graced the stadium and fluttered thousands of colorful tassels that hung off the caps and draped over the gowns of the graduating class of 2001. Together the 6,000 graduates became the largest graduating class in University history. They were freshman when the Wolver- ines won the Rose Bowl in 1 997, and national championships in Men ' s Soccer, and Ice Hockey. As new students to campus they were here when a lawsuit challenged the University ' s under- graduate admissions policy was filed in US District Court Oct 1 4, 1997. Over the next four years the issue developed into the largest Affirmative Action court case in the nation, encompass- ing both the undergraduate and graduate programs. Moreover when the new class of students came to the University so did a new president. Lee C. Bollinger was inaugurated on Sept. 19 1997. He walked onto this campus with the class of 2001 and when he stood before them on April 17th he gave his final commencement speech as President of the University. Together the graduates, and their president, left the University and headed on in the world in 2001 . To commemorate the four years, student speaker and Spanish concentrator, Michael Stromayer remembered the quintessen- tial undergraduate experience from dorm food to football Satur- days. " We were part of the magic, the lyrics, the history, " he announced to his fellow graduates. Following Stromayer, former U.S. Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky gave his keynote address. Pinsky addressed the group as a new generation of adults. He expressed that in graduation, members of the class of 2001 became links in a chain of people that came before them. There is a legacy at the University, one of experience and one of knowledge and Pinsky entreated the graduates to continue the legacy saying, " The most important thing we can do, is to pass it on. " And so they did. The class of 2001 filed out of the Big House, spilled over campus in black gowns with an array of colored tassels and went into the world, no longer undergraduates. oiiij lth 14 I Graduation In a final farewell, Spanish major Michael Stromayer addresses his peers.

Across the street people played frisbee in the Law Quad, while girls worked on their suntans with statistics and biology books in front of them. These activities were common place in Ann Arbor during the summer. Many students were pleas- antly surprised by how relaxed the atmosphere be- came once the stress of classes was lessened. " Living in Ann Arbor in the summer is definitely worth it. Al- though it ' s a different atmosphere, it is more low-key than the other terms. It ' s definitely worth the freedom of living on your own, especially if you have close friends who stay here also, " said Kristen Ritter, a junior commu- nications major. With less on their plates, new-found Ann Arbor resi- dents found that impromptu parties became common place. Simple barbecues and grilling sessions quickly turned into porch parties and small house parties. " The pace slows down, my heart beat did as well, people are out and about, chillin ' and taking time to hang out with one another. I ' d say that investing into friendships by spending time with other people was the highlight of the summer for me, " commented senior organizational studies major Scott Wyatt. Ann Arbor did not offer as relaxing of a summer for everyone who chose to stay in town, however. Some students who worked as interns in the suburbs of Detroit and chose to commute from Ann Arbor were thrown into the real world a bit sooner than they expected. For those, the standard day included early morning commutes on clogged highways and 1 p.m. bedtimes. " Commuting takes away two to two-and-a-half hours of your day every day, " said industrial and opera- tional engineering senior Bryan Maloney. " Those few hours mean you have to get up earlier, go to bed earlier and don ' t have as much time for things like partying. " Summers in Ann Arbor left students with an overall good impression. Sopho- more Ruby Hiramanek summed up her experience: " This spring term could quite possibly be the most fun I ' ll have at U of M. There ' s nothing like renting your own house, having a little party on a warm summer night, having a little get-together turn into a herd of randoms, having strangers pool for another keg, and ultimately having the concerned Ann Arbor police stopping by to chat with probably your drunkest housemate while 400 students run wild and consequently get MIP ' s and DUI ' s. You wake up the next morning and the kitchen chair is broken in the front lawn, the ' For Rent ' sign is ganked from your neighbor ' s lawn, and the ceiling has fallen in in your ant-infested but cozy home. It ' s a great time. Oh yeah the classes are good too, I guess. " By Jayme Love 16 I Summer in Ann Arbor Hawking water at the Ann Arbor Art Fair, a student profits off of the heat of the summer.

In silence, students come together in shock and disbelief as they try to cope with the tragic events of Septmeber 1 1 . The Diag was a sea of solemn faces at the 9 p.m. candle- light vigil held that evening. . ,. ., United State of Grief Just after noon on Tuesday, September 1 1 , 2001 , campus was a numb- ing sight. Glass doors in Angell Hall, the Natural Science Building and the Chemistry Building all were flanked with flapping pink notices announcing that classes were cancelled. One student paced on the Diag, frantically dialing his cell phone and nervously pulling at his clothing. There was no answer from the other end of his call. He dropped the phone in his pocket, turned to a friend and put his head on her shoulder. Behind the solemn pair, a circle of students sat on the grass, their heads bowed, next to a large sign that said " JUST PRAY. " Every few minutes they struck a gong and the hollow sound of it echoed throughout the vicinity. Thatmorningsawtheworstterroristattackin American history. The events of thatTuesday left Americans trembling with grief and shaking with anger. Not since the bombing of Pearl Harbor had American soil been devastated so violently. At 8:45 a.m. a hijacked passenger jet, American Airlines Flight 11, plummeted into the north tower of the World Trade Center in Manhattan. It tore a gaping hole in the building, which burst into flames, and began a wave of horror in New York City. Students in Ann Arbor woke to the news, and many glued themselves to their televisions, trying to absorb what had happened. The terror, however, had only just begun. Seventeen minutes later, at 9:03 a.m., a second hijacked airliner, United Airlines Flight 175, smashed into the south tower of the World Trade Center. The plane exploded. Over midtown Manhattan, buildings were burning and chaos erupted in the streets below. As New Yorkers fled from the twin towers, the terrorists struck again in the nation ' s capital, Washington D.C. At 9:43 a.m., American Airlines Flight 77 crashed into the Penta- gon, killing 1 26 civilians and crippling the national center of defense. Fearing the worst, the nation froze; occupants of the White House were evacuated, airports shut down, passages into and out of Manhattan were blocked off and all in-air flights were rerouted into Canada. Still, the wave of terror was not over. Horror washed over campus and America again when, at 10a.m., the south tower of the WorldTrade Center collapsed. A massive cloud of dust and debris billowed over New York when the tower crumpled into the street, killing thousands of workers trapped insideand rescue personnel in the streets below. At 1 0:1 a.m. United Airlines Flight 93, also hijacked, crashed in Somerset County, PA., southeast of Pittsburgh. It was unknown where that plane was intended to strike; speculations included the White House, Capital Building or Camp David. At 10:28 a.m. the nation gasped when the World Trade Center ' s north tower folded and plummeted as the south 20 I Attack on America Flooding past the construction fencing, students attending the vigil on September 1 1 meet with an estimated 15,000 like-minded peers. They sat or stood in silence as they listened to speakers and shared their prayers. photo by Betsy Foster Appearing almost immediatly after the attacks, signs inform students about the vigil in the Diag. Mass e- mails regarding the vigil were also released and quickly forwarded throughout the campus commu- nity, photo by Kate Mahar Friends solemnly share a flame as the thousands of candles are lit. " The vigil on September 1 1 was one of the most amazing things I have ever been a part of. It was awesome, " said Kirt McKee, junior engi- neering student, photo by Kate Mahar tower had only minutes before. Already it was confirmed that on the flights all heading toward Los Angeles with full tanks of fuel, 221 people died. While the nation quivered, President George W. Bush, speaking from Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana, said in a shaking voice, " Make no mistake: the United States will hunt down and punish those responsibleforthese cowardly acts. " Inside Angell Hall a cluster of 30 or so students swarmed beneath the television sets listening as CNN " Headline News " anchors loudly reported the latest details of the attack. As she shook her head at the television, junior LSA student Robin Phree told how she found out about the attack: " I woke up and my roommates had the W on. They were telling me to wake up and come watch. I called my mom and she was crying because my dad was supposed to fly to New York today. " Elsewhere on campus, student groups mobilized to unite the stu- dent body in peaceful assembly. One of those students groups was the Michigan Student Assembly, " I got an email from my friend at about 9:35 a.m. the morning of September 1 1th, and immediately left the MSA office to find a TV. After going to a friend ' s house for a while, I went to the Fleming Building to see what they needed from students. I story continued on page 32 Michigan Life | 21 story continued from page 21 wanted to make sure that they were realizing that the campus was going through a shock wave, that kids would panic. I spent the rest of the day between the Fleming building and the MSA office coordinat- ing the CAPS services, the vigil, help lines and other support groups, " said Matt Nolan, junior political science major and president of the Michigan Student Assembly. Nolan admitted his personal feelings did not emerge until later: " I didn ' t really get a chance to react until that night when I got home. As I watched the TV, the severity of the day ' s events started to sinkin. My disbelief turned to shock, and I wentto bed not really knowing what was going to happen, but knowing that things had definitely changed forever. " As a result of the student initiative to help, a stream of students could be seen heading down East University, South University and State Street at 9 p.m. In small groups and pairs, people in Ann Arbor moved toward the Diag. Vigil organizers passed out candles while mourners shared their matches and lighters. It was estimated that 1 5,000 people pressed together in front of the Graduate Library. There was no noise, and only the light from 1,000 votive candles. Speakers sensitively discussed issues including theadministration ' sresponseto terrorism, the governmental and political impact, and the religious and cultural responses, including anti-discrimination against Arab Americans.

" Following this, several religious leaders delivered their mes- sages of peace; no one in the crowd spoke. The Amazin ' Blue a cappella group topped the evening with a song called " Forgiveness, " by Patti Griffith. As the music moved over the crowd, most of the students sat together, spilling over the bricks of the Diag, the surrounding grass and even the limbs of the trees. Vigil organizers estimated that this was the largest student generated gathering ever. " Immediately we knew we had to come together. There is no way to recognize now the magni- tude of what is happening to us, we ' re all in shock, " said junior political science major Michael Simon. " I woke up and wanted to spend the day with my friends. I just wanted us all to be together, " Simon affirmed. The vigil he planned did just that, giving students a chance to come together. Afterward, Amita Sharma, a senior biopsychology major who grew up in Manhattan, confessed, " I ' ve called my mother probably 20 times. Their cell phones aren ' t working. Nobody can get a hold of anybody and no one knows what is going on. I have so many memories and I love thetwintowers;you could see themfrom the windows where I worked. " In the wake of the nation ' s most horrific tragedy, hundreds of students turned to each other. Some rejoiced with the loved ones they had taken for granted, while others courageously faced unbearable loss. Together, everyone entered into what was called America ' s New War.

Not only were the cooler tem- peratures a welcome break from the extremes of Michigan summers and winters, but the coming of autumn marked the beginning of the school year and all the activities that went along with it. " Autumn in Ann Arbor is fun be- cause there ' s beginning of the year parties and football games, " said Becky DeLancey, a senior communication studies major. " And it ' s a good atmo- sphere because everybody ' s back to school and you ' re seeing all thefnends you haven ' t seen all summer. " The milder fall weather d rew stu- dents outside to study, nap and visit with friends, while the Arb proved to be the ideal place for jogging, picnics and other outdoor activities. As more and more people returned to Ann Arbor for the impending school year, the Diag became increasingly crowded with students playing instru- ments, people-watching and engag- ing in impromptu frisbee and foot- ball games. " It ' s good rollerblading weather because it ' s not too hot, but it ' s not snowy, " said DeLancey. " And you can have picnics too. " As the heat dwindled, some in- structors even moved their sessions outdoors to escape the stuffy Univer- sity classrooms. " My favorite part is when your GSI lets you have discussion outdoors and you can sit and tan and watch people, " said Adrienne Van Poperin, a junior in the Nursing School. " It ' s like they let you go home or something that ' s how excited I get. " Perhaps the most anticipated facet of autumn was the beginning of the football season. Students, alumni and fans from near and far crowded Ann Arbor to watch the Wolverines take on their opponents in Michigan Sta- dium, turning the city into a bustling hub of Wolverine pride. As students flooded back to Ann Arborfor the beginning of the school year, became reacquainted and got settled back into college life, there seemed to be very few drawbacks. " There ' s less parking, " laughed DeLancey. ' That ' s the only downfall. " and Cortney Dueweke Taking a break from book shopping, two students relax outside Cava Java on South University Avenue.

Dating attitudes seemed to run the gamut: Some students prefered not to date at all, while others returned to Ann Arbor thinking more about where their next hook- up was coming from rather than where their next aced exam was coming from. For those students looking to meet " that special someone, " options abounded. In the fall, first-year students often dated peers in their dorms or traveled to frat parties. Once those possibilities were exhausted, having a network of established friends seemed to be one of the most popular ways for students to meet new people and potential significant others. The first few weeks of the fall semester, with nicer weather and lighter homework, created an atmosphere where love, if one was willing to look for it, was in the air. " When you first get back to school there is less work and more partying. Pretty much it is the time to meet people and find somebody comfortable for the busy season, " said sophomore biology major Rebecca Bartkowski. In a school with 35,000 intelligent, attractive and diverse students it was hard not to meet new people and be interested in them. Although there were some unusual methods of meeting significant others, for many the venues were the same: classes, housing, bars, and parties. These appeared to be the most common avenues for the lovelorn to take in the quest for a companion. For those students already attached, Ann Arbor offered a variety of options for dates, including great restaurants, movie theaters and a multitude of outdoor places to be alone. Of course, everyone was different, and therefore dating and meeting new people at the University was a complex and unique experience. Sophomore ISA student Joanna Beck and junior mechanical engineering major Douglas Constantine had been dating on and off since her freshman year. " The nice thing about coming back sophomore year and dating Doug was that I am already so comfortable with him. All that frat party pressure to meet someone was nonexistent, " said Beck. The couple went out to parties, dinner or studied together. They met in 2000 in South Quad with the mutual interest in rowing, and had stayed closeever since. They both did not think that dating each other had hindered their social life in any way; in fact, they thought that it had enhanced it. " It is nice to have somebody that you love a lot to just hang out with all of the time, " Constantine said. While some students felt the need for a relationship in order to have someone to hang out with " all of the time, " others just felt that being social with friends provided all the fun and companionship they needed - without the pressures of the dating scene, first dates and awkward silences. 26 I Fall Romance Espresso Royale lattes in hand, LSA seniors Hillary Peltier and Brad Lienimv converse near the corner of North University Avenue and State Street.

Lunch breaks provided a great opportu- nity to catch up with friends. photo hy Abby Johnson the Daily By Cortney Dueweke Dine When lunch time rolled around, many students had breaks in their day that allowed them to study, nap, hang out with friends or most importantly to get food. Toward the middle of the day, the Union, the League and most of the restaurants near campus were flooded with hungry students looking to grab a quick bite to eat before heading back to class. For Paul Gromek, a first-year Rackham student majoring in applied economics, lunch breaks were an important part of the day. " I try to make sure I have a break somewhere between 1 1 and 2 just to grab something to eat, " he said. " I would say, give yourself as many breaks as possible; you don ' t want to overworkyourself. You ' ve got to give yourself a break to eat. " For computer engineering junior Owen Yaklin, however, lunch breaks were left to chance. " It ' s just kind of random; however my schedule works out, " he said. " My schedule gives me a two-hour period right at lunch time, " said architecture senior Tom Kuljurgis. " I always eat tunch at that break in the schedule, because my next chance to get food isn ' t until 5:30. " Convenience often played the biggest role in students ' choice of where to eat. " I used to eat breakfast or lunch or whatever up at the McDonald ' s at the Commons up [on North Campus], since it ' s right by the bus stop, " said Yaklin. " For the quickest and simplest, it ' s just Jimmy John ' s. I go there all the time. " Kuljurgis ' s situation was similar. " I ' m on North Campus, so it ' s quicker and easier to grab a bite to eat up there, " he said. " The cafeteria in Pierpont Commons usually has decent food; so does the sandwich place and coffee shop, though those are a little pricey. Often times I just surrender and go to the very badly managed McDonald ' s. I drive to class a lot, so I sometimes take my car to the nearby Subway or Wendy ' s. " Gromek enjoyed eating Pizza House and any of the Union ' sfast food. " Half the time I eat out, half the time I just grab something that I have at my house, " he added. Kuljurgis agreed that eating at home was more financially feasible. " Sometimes I feel like cooking, and I go back home, " he said. " Going homefor lunch also helps when I don ' t have any money. " Whether eating out or eating in, planned or accidental, lunch breaks were another part of the average student ' s day at the University.

Smoking proved to be an expensive habit, phou by Bert Hayes Taking a break from her studies, Beth Lambourne, a first-year student, enjoys her Marlboro Light. Many smokers rewarded their good study habits with smoke breaks. 30 | Smoking cigarette culture By Sarah Johnson After a night out at a restaurant, a frat party, or a bar one thing was almost certain the smell that lingered. Even after a night studying in a coffee shop students may have noticed that the stale smoke smell found its way into sweaters, backpacks and jeans. " I hate the way the smell clings to your clothes, " said sophomore psychology major Lauren Mendelson. " I hate how some people are so in-your-face about smoking. Like when they are blowing smoke in your face or just acting dramatic about having a cigarette. It ' s fine that you thinking smoking is cool, I guess, but don ' t hate me because I don ' t smoke, " she added. Still, smoking was a part of the University ' s culture and many students picked up the habit when they came to college. Junior Business School student Jim Leroi admitted that was how he started: " People always say they only smoke when they drink. That ' s not really true though. That ' s just how you start. First you just smoke at parties, then you smoke around other people who smoke, then you smoke one or two when you ' re really stressed out, and boom you ' re up to a pack a day. " Laura Yankee, a junior psychology major, agreed that smoking was a habit and not a social passtime. " I think social smoking is a crock. You either smoke or you don ' t. None of this ' I only smoke when I am around friends who smoke. ' Smoking isn ' t something you should do because you think it makes you cool, " Yankee said. When asked why people should smoke she added, " I don ' t know why you do it. It keeps me from being too stressed out. " Stress was the biggest reason that most smokers reached for their lighter and stepped outside for the necessary " smoke-break. " Nonetheless, the biggest stress about smoking, for those who tried it, was quitting, " Quitting is so hard. I didn ' t think it was going to be this hard. I ' ve gone three and a half weeks, " said junior LSA student Ana Vaz. " It ' s not so much about the nicotine addiction anymore it ' s the oral fixation. Altoids are key, though; whenever I want a cigarette, I just reach for the Altoids, " Vaz continued. When asked what made her quit she shrugged and confessed, " I smoked since I was thirteen, but then I saw a dissection of a smoker ' s lung. It was truly disgusting and I knew I had to quit. " Michigan Life | 31 Wide Spectrum By Adam Spindler As a college town, Ann Arbor ' s charm could not really be attributed to any one thing, but there was something that stood out about the city that the University called home: diversity. Many students found the University attrac- tive because of its reputation for being a bit more open or liberal with regard to individual differences. Conversely, some may have been turned off by the idea of attending school in such a multi-cultural environment. The University ' s campus featured East Coasters, West Coast-ers, rich, poor, hippies, yuppies; one would have been hard-pressed to find a group that was not represented here. Students strove to find their place within a student body that was anything but homogeneous. At the New Student Convocation, Vice President of Student Affairs E. Royster Harper addressed the class of 2005 with the following advice: " The best way to get to know yourself is to get to know someone different from yourself. " Many students took Harper ' s sentiment to heart, but others found the task to be easier said than done. The opportunity, however, was certainly there for the taking. Many students learned just how sheltered their lives had been back home. Suburbia provided little context for the poverty that confronted passers-by in front of the In ' N Out convenience store on East University Avenue. Reactions were as varied as the student body itself. Some reached into their pockets, some simply returned a sympathetic glance and a " sorry, " while others dared not meet the stare of a homeless person asking them to " spare some change? " Some were more fascinated by the preaching of animated religious activists perched atop soapboxes in the Diag, the same area where they might have witnessed a public display of same-sex affection at the annual Kiss-In sponsored by LGBTonthestepsoftheHarlan Hatcher Gradu- ate Library. To some, these scenes were unsettling, but to others they were Book in hand, a student relaxes under a tree next to the corner of State Street and North Univer- sity Avenue.

Backroom ' s famous slices drew clientele from all over Ann Arbor, photo by Abby Johnson beautifully, achingly authentic. Ethnicity, socioeconomic status, religion and sexual orientation were but a few of the characteristics that set one student apart from the next. A multitude of fiercely guarded world-views, lifestyles and customs were represented and practiced with regularity. Junior Craig Van Kempen at- tended East Lansing High School before coming to the University, and grew up in another liberal and diverse environment, taking classes at a school where many of his peers were the sons and daughters of MSU professors. " Ann Arbor is definitely a more ' worldly ' crowd, " he said, " [My freshman year] I didn ' t just hang out with a certain group, and that really enriched my experience. " Ultimately, unity overwhelmed division, especially on football Saturdays. No matter what one believed or where one came from, once a student walked through the turnstiles and took a seat among the other 110,000 devoted faithful, a Wolverine was born bleeding maize and blue just like the rest, save for a fewout-of-towners trying in vain to cheerthe visiting team to victory. A quick glance at the Big House student section provided irrefut- able evidence that the diversity within the student body certainly had no negative impact on its school spirit. Sometimes it was easy to forget, but there were actually people living in Ann Arbor not attending the University. These brave souls once again saw their city invaded by thousands of young adults who saw this place as a means to an end, often showing little concern for the city itself. Junior Graham Smith, himself a resident of Ann Arbor, commented: " There are three things Ann Arbor people hate: the [annual] Art Fair, football Saturdays and University of Michigan students. " One might think that with so many different groups living in relatively cramped quarters, tensions might have easily escalated in Ann Arbor. But once again, the college town somehow managed to make room for all.

Or maybe it was time to snuggle up in your smallest nighty and warmest robe for a big pajama party. Whatever the theme, University weekends were all about parties, and often the best costumes made the best nights. One September party boasted the Western theme of a dude ranch round-up. " We chose ' rhinestone cowboy ' based on a discus- sion we were having. We have always had theme parties like ' under the sea, ' ' Mardi- Gras ' or ' Hawaiian. ' This time some people wanted a Western theme, but others wanted to modernize it and update it. Hence, rhinestone cowboy. Your basic be- dazzled denim, " said ISA senior Aviva Gibbs. Gibbs and her housemates wore badges to match their bedazzled denim and Gibbs said, " We also had a few good friends come over in complete cowboy apparel down to the authentic boots and hat. " Othertheme parties, however, were not quiet so innocent.The " naughty naughty " party thrown by senior psychology major Lisa Privett and her roommates was for risk- taking students who did not mind showing up in their pajamas. Michelle Martinez, junior cultural anthropology and English major, threw an early ' 90s party. She said she wanted to bring back people ' s memories, good or bad. When asked about theme parties in general she commented, " I think they are great but sometimes no one really dresses up because they think that they will come off as foolish. They don ' t under- stand that really, that is the whole point. Our theme was the early ' 90s and we decided on that because it ' s back to middle school and you are forced to think about who you once were. " A far more noble sort of theme party raised money for charity. In the wake of terrorist attacks on Manhattan ' s twin towers and the Pentagon, a " red, white and blue " party was thrown by senior theater major Kelly Lemen and a group of fellow theater students.The students charged party-goers $3 a cup and donated the money to the relief efforts in New York. Similarly, an annual block party called " Lindenfest " teamed up with the American Red Cross to create the student version of a charity ball. More than six houses on Linden Street opened their doors to students for a night of music, dancing and drinking. Strategically-placed donation cups urged students to give to the victims of terrorism and the families of the rescue workers that lost their lives. Overall the event earned more than $800. Even the Ann Arbor Police and the Department of Public Safety supported the effort, and let the music play uninter- rupted all night long. Michigan Life | 35 hazy after T jdlLCl Hours Social events were a major part of student life at the University, but sometimes the most interesting oc- currences came after the party was already over. Walks homefrom the bar or parties turned into adventures of thierown. Biology and art history senior Nisha Shah had multiple stories about the unusual endings to nights of partying. On Naked Mile night, Shah and several friends were outside an apartment building when " these guys on the top floor were screaming at us and told us that they ' d pay us five dollars each and we were wasted if we ' d flash them, " Shah laughed. " So we did, re- peatedly. We made $ 1 5 so we went out for pizza. " During the summer, Shah and her friends decided after a night of drink- ing that it " would be fun " to sleep outside on the Diag. " We woke up around 4 or 5 in the morning and real- ized [what we did], " she said. And while Shah was studying at the University ' s Biostation in Pellston, Mich, during the summer, she and friends decided to go skinny-dipping in a nearby lake after returning from the bar. That celebration quickly was brought to a halt by a Biostation secu- rity guard. " We had a security guard we ' d call Dewey, because he reminded us of Dewey from ' Scream, ' " she laughed. " Wecameback[from the bar], and we all decided to go skinny-dip- ping. So we all jumped in the lake, and then Dewey comes by, and takes all our clothes! So... we were running af- ter him ... and then he dropped clothes along the way. " Sophomore engineering student Jason Miller had stories of his own, although they were not quite as un- usual as Shah ' s. " The first time I went out my freshman year I found my way home after being unable to locate the keg at the second party we went to, " he said. " And, I got ripped in the dorm starting at noon one day. So at about 4 orso I was pretty wasted and my room- mate taped me dancing around and singing to DMX ' s ' What ' s My Name. ' " Milleralso recalled being kicked out of a fraternity for throwing up on the stairs, and blacking out while walking homefrom a party. Although sophomore engineering student Ethan Smith did not have sto- ries of his own, he recalled the misfor- tune of one of his friends. " I know one guy who got so drunk at his own kegger that he urinated on his com- puter tower, " said Smith, " because he thought it was a toilet or something. " Though drinking and partying were well-known parts of University life, some of the most amusing and enter- taining aspects of the Ann Arbor party culture were the events following the actual celebration.

Alongsidethe television satellite trucks were scores of squad cars, blocking off roadways and waiting for the race to begin. But as it turned out, there were more flashing lights than streaking nude bodies on the last day of classes for winter semester 2001 . " This year ' s annual University of Michigan Naked Mile run was a very big non-event, " said Ann Arbor Police Sgt. Andrew Zazula. While the temperature was in the low fifties, it was not the chill in the air that kept runners off the infamous Naked Mile route. The route tradition- ally stretched from the corner of Washtenaw and South University Av- enues, down South University, through the Diag, across State Street and finally to the Cube behind the Union. More likely, the unpopularity of the event had much more to do with a statement issued by E. Royster Harper, Vice President for Student Af- fairs, and William Bess, Director of Pub- lic Safety, which discouraged all stu- dents from participating. The statement cited construction and fencing on the Diag as a danger- ous obstruction of the traditional course and added that, " City and cam- pus police officers will be intensifying their enforcement of the law. An indi- vidual arrested for indecent exposure could, in some instances, be required to registerthereafterasa sex offender. " This statement, combined with the number of spectators at the event, es- pecially those with cameras, suc- ceeded in stopping the race. Students just felt that the risk of running out- weighed the thrill. ISA senior Cassandra Hoyte said, " Running the Naked Mile is not for everyone. People don ' t like the idea of having their na- ked pictures posted on the Internet. " More than 100 Web sites emerged posting " Naked Mile " pictures in re- cent years of the run. Additionally, this was not the first Naked Milethe University actively dis- couraged. The first campaign to end the event was after winter term 2000. It was the University ' s view that the event had " grown out of control in recent years. Thousands of spectators gather, many of them with the intent of videotaping the participants or grabbing at runners as they traverse what quickly becomes a narrow gaunt- let. " The Naked Mile started in 1986, often accredited to the men ' s lacrosse and rowing teams. In 2000 the teams jointly agreed not to participate and crew Head Coach Gregg Hartstuff said, " I am glad the members of the team made this choice. I would encourage others who m ay be thinking about running the event to reconsider; it gives the University an unnecessary black eye. Both of these are good rea- sons to not run the Naked Mile any- more. " The race still went on that year, perhaps for the last time, with more spectators than runners and a great deal of controversy. Excitement mounted and specta- tors strained to see the narrow path down which runners would come, but only about two dozen tried. Of those, 1 2 were arrested, according to public information officer Diane Schofield. The University estimated 70,000 spec- tators. For them, the night culminated around 11:20 p.m., when a single fe- male runner with a backpack took a chance and bolted down South Uni- versity. Before she reached the Diag, police grabbed the runner and dragged her through the crowd to- ward the squad car. The spectators cheered and pressed together, trying to get a better look. After a moment, the crowd became distracted and when it appeared that no one was looking the police made her get dressed. The night had fallen, classes were over and a tradition had died. After that, everyone just drifted away. By Sarah Johnson 38 I Naked Mile .!:tcnlivelv, a potential runner Jiscusses the risks involved with partid- .uting in the Naked Mile.

At an institution that blended academics and athletics, liberal viewpoints and conservative opinions, and humid sum- mers and snowy winters, it only made sense that the University also blended itself right into the city that encompassed it. In a college town more urban than most universities its size, the University thrived on its close connection both in physical location and psychological mindset to Ann Arbor. An unofficial boundary between on-campus and off-campus, South Univer- sity Avenue offered a mix of restaurants and shops. " South U is a really cool place because it is the most characteristic of how our campus is intertwined with the city of Ann Arbor. You don ' t get that at many other schools, " said sophomore mechanical engineer Jeffrey Parker. Catering to the college appetite, bars and restaurants lined the street. Some of the most popular restaurants in the city were along South U the Brown Jug, Good Time Charley ' s and Jimmy John ' s. Mitch ' s and Touchdown Cafe, along with Rick ' s around the corner on Church Street, provided evenings of adventure for students over 21.

The blocks of State Street housed everything students could want, from theaters to boutiques to restaurants. On their way from class in the Frieze Building to class in Angell Hall, students who felt the urge to splurge could swing into Urban Outfitters, Eastern Mountain Sports, Ethnic Creations or Bivouac. Further emphasizing the mutual reliance of Ann Arbor and the University, some graduate student instructors hosted office hours in Espresso Royale Cafe. " I think that when people think of the city of Ann Arbor they can ' t help but think of the University ... and specifically State Street. There are so many things to do. Coming from such a small town to here... has been a cultural shock for both me and my taste buds, " said sophomore mechanical engineer Holly Mauk. With all of its ways to beat stress, State Street was a retreat for many students but it did hold some frustrations, namely the constant traffic and poor civil layout. " One would think that being one of the country ' s top engineering schools someone would be able to figure out a better way to lay out the busiest street in the city, " said political science major Michael Wakeley. " First off, State Street is only a two-lane street that cuts down to a one-way road in front of the State Theater smack in the middle of the business district. " A driver ' s nightmare, going south past the theater required a detour to Thompson Street; backups were the norm during rush hour. For pedestrians, the bottleneck could prove dangerous; since it connected to so many different areas of the city, the amount of traffic caused challenges for students hurriedly hustling to class. story continued on page 44 Michigan Life | 43 a street for any . occasion Another of the major thoroughfares that helped create the atmosphere of Ann Arbor was Main Street. This somewhat upscale part of town, further from campus, offered students a recluse from the campus area when they truly wanted to get away from it all. " Main Street is the best place to go when you are hungry and your parents are in town, " said Reiley Lewis, a sophomore sociology major. On any given night, students and Ann Arboritesalike could be seen walking along Main Street, browsing through the unique shops while waiting for tables at Mongolian Barbeque, Gratzi ' s or Palio. The downtown district re- minded students that Ann Arbor was not just the University that there was a whole other world out there that did not just revolve around campus life. The Main Street area was most often explored by seniors and graduate students looking for new places to go. In an atmosphere where a student could step from academic life to social life simply by crossing a street or two, Ann Arbor and the University blended into quite the college town experience.

And luckily, Ann Arbor was definitely not at a loss of options for those looking to properly celebrate their induction into legal drinking. Senior industrial and operations en- gineering major Brian Burstein ' s 21st birthday was April 18, 2001, coincid- ing with the last day of classes and the night of the Naked Mile. He took full advantage of every hour of his birth- day, pre-partying at his apartment and visiting Touchdown ' s just after mid- night on the 18th to do shots. After multiple drinks, some of which were purchased by people he did not even know, Burstein recalls, " I ended up walking around Pizza House introduc- ing myself to all the girls there, " he laughed, although he admitted he 46 | 21st Birthdays nr rituals and new privileges make for interesting nights later became ill and stayed hungover for most of the day. On the evening of his birthday, " I had a little get-together planned at Good Time Charley ' s so all my under-21 friends could come buy me drinks, " he said. " Ann Arbor is an excellent place to celebrate. Charley ' s is a great place to have your underage friends go so they can buy you shots. And places like Scorekeepers are just great to party. For a more laid-back atmosphere, Connor O ' Neill ' s is great. " Senior English and design major Jenny DiDomenico got " dressed up " for her 21st birthday, which she cel- ebrated at the Del Rio. " I wore my spe- cial ' pink birthday princess ' skirt and royal tiara on a dare and ended up running into someone from work, who looked at me like I was totally nuts, " she laughed. ' There are so many bars to choose from, and they don ' t give you crap because everyone here is drunk anyway. " Senior psychology major Bethany Kolenic will neverforget her 21st birth- day, although the memory is a painful one literally. " On my 21 st birthday, we went to Rick ' s, and everything was fun until I posed for a picture with my friends at the end of the night, " she said. " First of all, this weird guy I didn ' t even know jumped in at the last second, grabbed my leg and took a bite out of it. While this was going on, my friend acciden- tally put his cigarette out on the palm of my hand in the process of trying to put his arm around me to pose. " It was such an unfortunate climax, " she continued, " but it definitely made my birthday memorable.

Fraterni- ties, sororities and numerous Univer- sity organizations took part in paint- ing the Rock. It was quite often known as a battle for possession between the different houses in the Greek system, constantly being painted over by a different house. As Barry Zilan, a se- nior communications major, said, " Be- ing a member of the Greek system, I see the Rockas a pride thing. You paint it, you guard it, people try and paint over it. It ' s like saying ' we were here first. " The different houses competed against one another to see whose let- ters shone on rock on any given evening. When it came down to it, painting the Rock created healthy competition while at the same time enhanced a sense of pride in being part of an organization. As Zilan em- phasized, " The Rock gives us a reason to have pride in things we do. " As a new member to a Greek house, painting the Rock was an exciting new event. Senior Gabrielle Baumann, a history and archaeology major, recol- lected, " As a first-year student, I painted the Rock with my pledge class as a sisterhood event and it allowed me to get to know my sisters better. " Unlike fraternities, sororities saw painting the Rock as creating a memory, instead of fighting a battle. Baumann claimed that " painting the Rock was a great bonding experience. " Although a large part of the Univer- sity experience, the painting of the Rock was also an event enjoyed by members of the general Ann Arbor community. A University student who also grew up in Ann Arbor, Susan Dailey, a senior French and psychol- ogy major, fondly remembered, " When I was nine, my family painted the Rock for my dad ' s birthday. We also painted it when I was on the swim team in high school. " No mattertheoccasion, paint- ing the Rock was a memorable mile- stone to anyone who took part.

" Another cry of protest was the constant rhythm of overlapping drumbeats, sometimes frantic and al- ways passionate, on Saturday, April 7. Spectators on the University ' s campus might have seen Hash Bash as cel- ebration but it was, in actuality, pro- test. The 30th annual Ann Arbor Hash Bash commenced at " high noon " on the Diag and represented the start of a new petition for the legalization of marijuana in Michigan. Protestors had 1 80 days to collect 302,000 signatures to supportthe Personal Responsibility Amendment (PRA) for the legalization of Marijuana. Protest organizer Greg Schmid, a 41 year-old Republican at- torney, optimistically told Detroit ' s Metro Times newspaper, " I think the :limate is changing in Michigan. I think that, as time goes by, more and more people are ready to see the war on drugs end, and they perceive the PRA as a way to begin moving in that direc- tion. " If passed, the decriminalization laws presented by the PRA would al- low Michigan residents to grow and possess three ounces of marijuana for personal use. There was a " compas- sionate use " provision for medical use and a provision granting the right to farm and manufacture indu hemp.The new law would ensure that proceeds from drug, alcohol and gam- bling forfeitures are directed into edu- cation and rehabilitation programs. Many students, like ISA sophomore Erika Wilson, enjoyed H if they did not participate in the PRA initiative. " I just came to see what was going on. The music is pretty go Wilson said. " I think it is just p getting together for a common cause. I personally don t think marijuana should be legalized but I support people gathering here to fight for a cause.

They were the warm-up tones of the marching band announcing the arrival of another football Saturday. Students who lived within six blocks of the stadium were roused this way , tumbling out of bed to see swarms of cars in the streets, nearly all of them waving " M " flags and sporting " Michigan Alumni " decals in their windows. Soon after they barreled into town, those visitors paid $ 1 or $15 each to park in driveways, on lawns or on the golf course. Then visitors and students alike took place in the great tradition of American football the tailgate. Sophomore engineering student Marty Ferren said, " My parents came to town for the homecoming day. They were really excited about pre-partying and they just bought tons of food. I invited all my roommates and stuff, but we still couldn ' t eat it all. The only bad part was that we missed the kick-off because we were still eating on the golf course. " Similar tailgates took place all over campus where housemates, parents and friends were seen mingling around the backs of cars and heating up grills. Smells of hotdogs, cookies, chips, brownies and popcorn drifted in the air. Food spilled out of trunks and " The Victors " played while University students and friends waited for kick-off, often with beer in hand. As if on cue, the tailgaters looked at their watches, packed up their trunks and swarmed toward the stadium to take their seats in the Big House. story continued on page 54 Enjoying a pre-game meal, a student samples some three-bean chili at the Gamma Phi Beta annual chili cook-off on Elbel Field.

Remembering her days in the band Lynott said, " It was cool because you were part of the show. We were right down in the middle of it, you ' re in the center of things. " But Lynott had also seen the games another way, this time strictly as a fan: " The last two years I bought student tickets and I love it. Now I get to pre-party with all my friends. Wedrink beer and grill hotdogs. It ' s a blast. " Not all students had season tickets, however, and some did not really care about football. Junior art and design student Erin Sanderson said, " I don ' t have tickets because I work every Saturday. The restaurant where I work is much busier on game days. The past two years I had tickets but I didn ' t go to the games that much. I don ' t really careaboutfootball. " But Sanderson did admit, with or without the game, football Satur- days were a fun time. " I used to pre-party with my older brother and his friends. That was probably my favorite part, " he said. That was one point that season ticket holders, football haters and visitors all seemed to have in common: at the University, a pre-party was a natural part of football Saturday. Creating competition of their own, students Jordan Olive, Tim Crohn, Jamal Duncan, James Miller, Bill Tomissen, Mat Ernest, Garrett Mendez, Drew Leslie and Paul Jenkins prepare the beer pong table for the next round.

For many University students, Halloween during the college years was quite different from the Hal- loween they knew as children. As students moved from youth to adulthood, trick-or-treating and the quest for the best candy was replaced by house parties and bar-hopping. Such was the case for communications senior Sa- rah Blase and senior English major PrashantRajkhowa. Blase took full advantage of the entertainment op- portunities Halloween provided. " I wenttomyfriend ' s house party, and to the bar, " she said. " I dressed up as a fairy princess this year. " " We just went out to this party and drank, " Rajkhowa said of his Halloween celebration. Although he did not dress up for the occasion, he did paint his face. Another friend he went out with dressed up as a character from Street Fighter, while one of his male friends wore a fairy costume, he added with a laugh. Blase noted both the ups and downs of the holi- day as a college student. " Halloween is a lot more social, " she said. " It ' s so much fun to see everyone dressed up and having so much fun. Unfortunately, there is also a lot less candy. " Chemical engineering sophomore Adam Cole agreed with Blase ' s assessment. " Halloween is more of a social event being older, " he said. " Trick-or-treat- ing certainly does not outweigh partying at this point in life. " Although sophomore LSA student Christy Davidson was studying for an accounting exam on Halloween, she did not let that stop her from enjoy- ing the holiday. She attended parties the weekend before, dressed as a cop. " The costumes are more fun; instead of just being Snow White or a ghost, I can do whatever I want and still have fun like when I was a kid, " said Davidson of how Halloween had changed since her childhood. " I miss going trick-or-treating, but I did that all through high school, too. " r- c scnief B By Cortney Dueweke For some students overwhelmed by schoolwork, however, the idea of celebrating Halloween only amounted to wishful thinking, as exams and term papers replaced holiday parties and nights out with friends. Cole and chemical engineering sophomore Richard Heins both spent Halloween night studying for exams. On Halloween, " I sat scared to death in the Graduate Library stacks studying for my Physics 140 exam, " Cole complained. He also noted that he had an organic chemistry exam on Halloween the year before. Had he not been studying, Cole guessed he would have done " what the rest of the University did: gooutandhavesomefun...maybeevenhavedressed up, " he said. Heins stayed inside to study for the same physics exam this Halloween, and was also sidelined by an organic chemistry exam during his first Halloween at the University. " I was going to get dressed up and go out to a few parties I even got a costume but then I realized that I had a physics exam the next day, so I had to stay home and study, " he said. " I would have met up with some friends, gone to a few frat parties and then gone to the Nectarine. " Both Cole and Heins thought professors should refrain from giving exams on Halloween and on the days surrounding it, pointing out that the demands of schoolwork had prevented them from enjoying the holiday fortwo years in a row. " I thinkthey should workaround it, " said Heins, while Cole added, " I don ' t really know what Halloween celebrations are like here, seeing as exams have occupied the day in one way or the other. Kids need to have some fun. " For those lucky enough to be able to go out on Halloween, the day was one when students could recall the youthful spirit of the holiday while cel- ebrating in a decidedly more adult way. For others trapped within the confines of the library or bound by academic obligations, Halloween was a day filled with painful studying and wishf ul thinking about candy, costumes and college fun. Michigan Life | 57 WORKING for me future Higher education made career dreams come true, but it was an expensive adventure. For in-state stu- dents, the total spent reached around $40,000, while for out-of-state students the amount doubled to about $80,000. Depending on the different resources students had, school could be a hard thing to pay for. For the students who found themselves paying for school alone, it became a difficult juggling act. Not only did they have to concentrate on schoolwork, extracurricular activities and a social life, but also they worked an enormous amount of hours during the week just to be able to do all these things. Sophomoreengineering student Jason Roselander was one such student who worked his way through school. He balanced two jobs, school and friends. Roselander ' s two jobs wereforthe Housing Informa- tion Technology Office, one working on projects for thedepartment and the other consulting in the IRC at South Quad. Roselander said one of the hardest things about working 30 hours each week to put himself through school was, " It seems that there ' s always some activ- ity or event that I would love to go to, but can ' t because I ' m working. It actually makes me feel like I ' m missing out on a big part of the college experi- ence. If I didn ' t need to work, there are a lot of things I would do with the extra time. " It was quite an accomplishment to be able to do all these things and still graduate. A sense of pride came with the fact that the students put themselves through school. Still it was a frustrating thing. By Carly McEntee " I used to think it was kind of cool to pay bills myself, but now it ' s mostly depressing or annoying. Working so many hours a week, and knowing I won ' t see most of that money is a big downer. Cafeteria food actually tastes worse if you ' re paying for it yourself, " Roselander commented. Roselander was not the only student that experi- enced this hardship. Sophomore engineering student Kyle Aron also worked to help pay his way through school. He paid half of his expenses while his parents paid the other half. Aron usually worked between 20 and 30 hours per week at the restaurant Cosi. He only worked nights and would work until about one or two in the morning, not leaving much timefor schoolwork. One of the hardest things, Aron found, was he " [didn ' t] have time to do homework at night " since most nights he spent at work, which meant he had to switch his timeschedulearound and sometimes missed a morning class or two. Aron also discovered he could not go out as much because some of the nights he had to devote to home- work. Juggling 1 6 credits plus work was quite a chal- lenge, but as he said, " It ' s all relative, I ' m enjoying work. " Many students found it necessary to pay their way through school, but instead of seeing it as a burden it just became everyday life. The students who putthem- selves through school had to miss out on some college experiences, but they still knew that they had paid for school with their own hard work and dedication. 58 | Working Through School Smiling as he works, Kyle Aron, sophomore engi- neering student, rings up a guest at Cosi. Aron began working at the trendy State Street restaurant at the beginning of the fall semester, photo by Kate Maker Michigan Life | 59 Spending November brought Thanksgiving, December brought Winter Break and, for many students, each holiday called for a trip home. Whether by car, bus, train or plane, students made sure to find a way to get homeforthe holidays. However, the further away the home, the fewer the options of how to get there; many students had no choice but to deal with the holiday madness at Detroit Metro Airport. Oftentimes students carpooled in a cab, splitting the fare, or paid classmates in gas money for trips to the airport. If students avoided booking flights, they were likely forced to deal with rush hour traffic in their journeys home. Driving home, although seemingly more appealing, required students to prepare for holiday traffic, unexpected weather and staying awake during the ride home. Even for those who were able to drive a short distance home on a more regular basis, breaks were still a nice opportunity to get away from Ann Arbor for a while. Senior kinesiol- ogy major Gillian Parrott explained, " Even though I only live an hourfrom Ann Arbor, I rarely go home. So going home and seeing my family for the holidays is exciting. Although I probably could have gone home more often in my four years here at the University, I basically just went home on holidays when every- body else did. That way it makes going home a lot more special and exciting. " Some students who really appreciated the chance to get home and visit with family were frustrated when teachers gave out homework that kept stu- dents busy. Students were typically seen hauling bags of schoolbooks home for Thanksgiving break. at.JiG ome By Tiffany Marsch While unfortunate, many students bit their tongues and made sure the work was done by the time they got back to class. Still, these students were annoyed at the work they had done and felt that teachers cruelly ignored students ' needs to get away from work and spend time with their family. Laura Yankee, a junior psychology major, commented, " I get really bummed when they assign work. I like to go home, unwind and prepare for the next set of school days and be with my family. It ' s annoying when I have to worry about schoolwork. I typically do it the day I get back to school. " No matter where a student lived, going home for the holidays was a treat.The chance to get away from the craziness of papers, exams and communal living was welcomed by most, if not all, students. Sarah Linkner, a senior English major, said, " I like going home for the holidays because I can eat really good food, catch up on sleep, and see all my friends from high school. " If for nothing else, going home for the holidays was great reason to catch up on sleep. 60 | Home for the Holidays Chatting over finger food, first-year students Sarah Polletta and Margaret Prest visit at a Thanksgiving party in Canton, Michigan.

Marcus Curry, freshman cornerbackforthe foot- ball team, was arrested on October 12 on domestic assault charges in South Quad. The news of the event hit campus soon after his suspension from the team was announced on October 13. Because of Curry ' s athletic involvement, the story made front page news in The Michigan Daily. However it was not uncommon for similar incidents to be reported to DPS. The issues of date rape and drug-related sexual assault came to the forefront of campus news follow- ing the events of Thursday, October 25. Beta Theta Pi fraternity hosted a semiformal party where a major- ity of the female guests were pledges of Delta Delta Delta sorority. Pledges said that they arrived at 604 South State around 1 0:30 p.m. and found the frater- nity house decorated and the men dressed in jackets and ties. The men set up a bar for mixed drinks, and the pledges said that the semiformal atmosphere seemed like a safe environment. Female members of the Greek system were repeatedly warned about the dangers of GHB and other date rape drugs, but the situations that were commonly discussed involved kegs of beer and open guest lists. A Tri-Delt pledge, interviewed by The Michigan Daily, commented about the situation: " Some of their pledge guys were pour- ing our drinks, I didn ' t think anything of it. It seemed fine. " She added, " I guess that was the problem; we let our guard down. We usually are looking out for each other. " The sexual assault investigations began the Friday morning after the party. An 18-year-old Delta Delta Delta first-year pledge awoke naked in a room at the fraternity, unable to recall much of the priorevening ' s events. She immediately took herself to the Univer- sity Hospital where she reported to the police that she believed that she had been drugged and raped at the party. The following Tuesday, a second first-year pledge atTri-Delt reported similar events taking place in a different room of the fraternity. In later question- ing, a majority of the girls that drank at the party remembered feeling excessively hungover the next day and a large number had difficulty remembering parts of the evening. " I didn ' t get out of control. But the next morning I felt so sick...like a massive hang- over even though I wasn ' t drunk the night before, " an anonymous female pledge recalled. Thecharges against two membersof Beta Theta Pi were dropped late in January because prosecutors did not feel they would be able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the rapes occurred. Problems with date rape and GHB made news throughout the country. Many programs and speak- ers on the topic visited campus. On November 1 4 the Interfraternity Council, the Panhellenic Association and the Athletic Department cosponsored a pro- gram titled, " He Said, She Said, " focusing on date rape. The event, which was held at Cliff Keen Arena, was open to all students, but included mostly mem- bers of the Greek and athletic communities. " If we start by addressing Greek members and athletes then maybe it can spread to other members of the com- munity, " said senior communications major Charles Cohen, IFC vice president of community develop- ment. Although date rape and domestic assault were scary trends on campus, most students agreed that one group could not be to blame. Bill Saindon, junior engineering student, commented, " It always seems the Greek community is quick to receive blame, even before the facts are out. " He added, " Date rape drugs are a scary thought. The bottom line is, friends must look out for each other when they go out. " 62 | Date Rape Beta Theta Pi stands at the corner of South State and Madison streets, a quick walk to Central Campus.

We found enjoyment in the extracurricular activities, but first and fore- most, we came to Ann Arbor to be students. Graduate student instructors made large classes seem less intimidating and gave our education a more personal feel. In the wake of the tragedies of September 1 1 , the University held a Teach-In to comfort as well as to educate the student body about the situation at hand. We were honored when former U.S. Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright, spoke about her association with the University and the Busi- ness School at Hale Auditorium. Some of us were troubled by the animal test- ing performed on campus, while others of us felt is was a necessary practice. We bid a fond farewell to President Lee C. Bellinger as he left the University for his alma mater Columbia University at the end of fall semester. We struggled through the 8:30 am lectures, and we stayed up all night studying for our finals. In doing so, we were given the opportu- nity to enrich our educations and to study with some of the most brilliant minds. 64 I Academics Lying in the grass, the contents of a student ' s book bag spill out in the Diag.

Students living on North Campus had long been pitied by Central Campus residents, who lived closer to practi- cally everything, including Ann Arbor ' s downtown area, the majority of the University buildings and most major hubs of activity. But while some students were stranded in Bursley or Baits against their will, others enjoyed the North Campus atmosphere and requested to live there. And for engineers, living on North Campus was like having class in their own backyards. As an out-of-state student, physics junior Marty Kandes had orientation only days before fall classes began and subsequently got stuck with 8 a.m. classesfour days a week on Central Campus. " I usually had to get up at 7 a.m. every morning and be at the bus at 7:30 so I didn ' t miss it, " he said. " Living up there was fine, the people are great, the facilities up there are fine. But the bus is definitely the most terrible thing ever. " First-year engineering student Jeff Shattock requested to live on North Campus for his first year in the residence halls. " It ' s far away from Central Campus, so you ' re not really connected to the community as much, but there ' s a sense of community up there, " said Shattock, who lived in Bursley. " And I ' m close to my engineering classes, so I can get up late and still make it to those on time. " As for whether she would recommend the North Cam- pus experience to others, Kristen Kozlowski, a sophomore engineering student who once lived in Bursley, only had one suggestion: " Make sure you really like riding the bus! " By Cortney Dueweke Academics I 67 For most college students, the months between May and August were times for returning home, having fun and enjoying time off school. But for students enrolled in spring or summer terms, those weeks instead were filled with classes, exams and studying. The two " half-semesters " offered selected courses com- pressed over only a few weeks, allowing students to com- plete a class that usually would have stretched an entire semester in less than two months. Students had mixed reasons for taking spring summer classes. Some wanted to lighten their standard school year semester or ensure that they would graduate on time, while others used summertime classes as an excuse to stay in Ann Arbor. Engineering senior Blair Lorimer took several spring summer courses during both his second and fifth years at the University to " get them done and out of the way. " " I like Ann Arbor in the summertime, but I think that some of the classes were more difficult when compressed into a spring or summer semester, " he said. " I took the intensive summer second-year Japanese course the summer of 2000, " said Jonathan Bauman, a fifth-year computer engineering student. " It was 10 weeks, for three-and-a-half hours a day. It covered a whole year ' s worth of material and was worth 1 credits. " It was the most fun course I ' ve ever had, " he continued. " I wanted to get ahead in Japanese before I graduated. I also wanted to do an internship in Japan the next summer, which I did. " For business administration junior Eric Schmidbauer, the decision to take spring courses last year was more of a recreational choice. " I took one spring class and figured I could just get a part time job, hang out, " he said. " It ' s a relaxing summer. You can get a class out of the way, ease up your schedule and still not be burdened with a lot of work, so it ' s a smart move.

" Gradu- ate Student Instructor and Ph.D. candidate in American culture Catherine Daligga took her students out into the real world rather than keeping them confined to the class- room. Her American Culture 206 course got field trip expe- rience in downtown Detroit when Daligga took them on her " non-traditional " city tour. Daligga liked the tour because it not only provided a relevant place and context for bringing the course objec- tives to life, it also allowed for spontaneous learning expe- riences. " In particular, Detroit is a place with a hugely complicated reputation, " she said. " I think it ' s important to show students how scholars and critics have chosen to interpret the city. " Like Daligga, many professors used field trips to en- hance their courses. The trips range from on-campus ex- cursions to the Bentley Library or the Museum of Art, to courses that rely entirely on out-of-class experience. Many students looked forward to the field trips and welcomed the change of pace that they offered. Senior English and psychology major Katie Marzolf says, " I love a class that takes me away from sitting in a lecture hall. " But not all students valued field trips the way Marzolf did. Junior industrial operations major Stephen Fleming recalled, " Once I had a class that expected us to go on all kinds of trips on Saturdays and outside of class hours. It was too much time, and a lot of kids dropped it. " Some students did not find field trips to be worth the time they took and, likewise, some professors did not fit field trips into their curriculum, but for the devout like Katie Marzolf and Catherine Daligga the field trip made the material worth learning.

While GSIs were a mainstay of undergraduate courses, coursework still relied upon professors. This created an atmosphereof mutual dependence, allowing undergradu- ates the experience offered by professors and the atten- tion offered by GSIs. Second-year nursing student Tracey Streiff explained, " GSIs, in my experience, often appear to be learning, or relearning, material right along with stu- dents. They can stimulate thought processes and answer questions, but don ' t have as extensive a knowledge base on some subjects as professors. " In order to protect themselves from unfair or arbitrary treatment, University GSIs were members of the Graduate Employees Organization. " No one single individual gradu- ate student can make a change; we must stick together, " explained GEO president and sociology graduate student Cedric De Leon. He said the University ' s union was the " strongest graduate school union in the country. " GEO represented 1,600 graduate students.

Some of the issues the GEO dealt with included increasing benefits, obtaining better wages, improving affirmative action, and providing child care. GSIsdevoted ten to twenty hours a weektotheircourses, from planning classes to holding office hours, from lead- ing discussion sections to grading papers. Many under- graduates took them for granted, expecting them to be ready and willing to answer last-minute questions any time of day or night, thanks to email and the Internet. At a large research school, undergraduate education, particularly in introductory courses, rested on this system. Although a trade-off, this did not mean an undergraduate was receiving a substandard experience.

So much so, that I ' ve now moved to London and am working as a teacher, " said Larissa Heap, a fifth-year education major. She first went abroad through the Office of International Programs (OIP) during the summer of 2000. It was after her junior year when Heap, whose mother was raised in England, decided it was time to visit her mother ' s homeland. After returning to the United States, Heap longed to go back, so through the School of Education, she found a way to not only get back to London, but to live and teach there. When Heap looked back on her trip she remembered that, " the pro- gram was so amazing in that we really did so much. We went to theaters, museums, on day trips, and tours, that most normal people in London don ' t get the opportunity to do. We were so fortunate to have seen it all as we did, and now, living here, we ' re missing having had those opportunities. " Like Heap, many University studentsfound study abroad programs the most rewarding part of theirformal college experience. Senior biopsychology major Gina Finnerman spent summer 2001 in Florence, Italy. When asked what advice she would give to a new student, she said, " You have to go. Any student who doesn ' t take advantage of the resources here on campus just doesn ' t know what they ' re missing. Italy was probably the best experience I ' ve ever had. " Summer trips like Finnerman ' s and Heap ' s included Florence, Italy; London, England; Oxford, En- gland; Seoul, Korea; Grenoble, France; and Salamanca, Spain. Other universities sponsored additional programs available through OIP. These summer programs were: Dublin, Ireland; Guanajuanto, Mexico; Graz, Austria; Que- bec, Canada; and Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. For more ambitious students, OIP offered semester and year-long programs in countries such as Australia, Brazil, Budapest, Hungary and many more. OIP Program Director Carl Dickerson encouraged all students to take a look at study abroad. " There are never going to be better oppor- tunities for travel out there. When you are a student, there are all kinds of programs and options to learn and immerse yourself in a new culture. Aftercollege these opportunities are much harder to find. " These programs were sponsored by schools across the country and OIP provided an a venue for students to find out about going abroad.

Daligga likes to take her students out into the real world rather than keeping them confined to theclassroom. Her American Culture 206course gets field trip experience in downtown Detroit when Daligga takes on them on her " non-traditional " city tour. Daligga likes the tour because it not only provides a rel- evant place and context for bringing the course objectives to life, it also allows for spontaneous learning experiences. " In particular, Detroit is a place with a hugely complicated reputation. I think it ' s important to show students how scholars and critics have chosen to interpret the city. Also, the opportunity for the unexpected is very stimulating. During one of our visits, for example, we stopped to see Tyree Guyton ' s art installation on Heidelberg Street, and we were lucky enough to find the artist at home and willing to talk with us for a few minutes. In some ways, that spontaneous interaction was more powerful than it would have been had I arranged for him to meet with us " states Daligga. Like Daligga, many professors use field trips to enhance their courses. The trips are anything from on campus excursions to the Bentley Library or the Museum of Art to courses that rely entirely on out of class experience. Many students look forward to the field trips and welcome the change of pace that they offer. Senior English and psychol- ogy major Katie Marzolf says, " I love a class that takes me away from sitting in a lecture hall. When I was a freshman I took a field trip to Botanical Gardens with Biology 1 62. It was cool to get out of the classroom and see the stuff we study alive in real life. After that class I have taken a lot that go to Detroit or require community service outside of class. It adds a lot to the course. " But not all students value field trips the way Marzolf does. Junior industrial operations major Stephen Fleming recalls, " Once I had a class that expected us to go on all kinds of trips on Saturdays and outside of class hours. It was too much time and a lot of kids dropped it. " Some students do not find field trips to be worth the time they take and, likewise, some professors do not fit field trips in to their curriculum. But for the devout, like Katie Marzolf and Graduate Student Instructor Daligga, the field trip makes the material worth learning.

Wetter admits that when she first came to CP P, it wasn ' t about getting a job; " I didn ' t know what I wanted to do, what I wanted to major in. I didn ' t knowanything. Someone told me about CP P and I came here because I was a mess. " That was just why CP P was invented. Located in the Student Activities Building, CP P did a lot more than connect graduating seniors with job opportunities. Advisors helped by spending time with each student who walked through their doors looking for help. Counseling sessions lasted about 15 minutes and discussed a range of concerns such as: choosing a major, career options, job search strategies, interviewing, applying to graduate and professional school, and how to use other CP P resources. For Wetter her first session was about choosing a major. " Since I was still choosing a major junior year, I took an aptitude test that offered me ideas ... my advisor was really patient and helpful with all of that, and now I am working on my resume. " The resume service offered by CP P guided students in writing cover-letters and resumes and then critiqued them. Another service called Forum gave students access to local and national internships. Moreover, it invited students to attend internship related programs and events offered by CP P. Although Wetter started her file at CP P early, she wondered if other students knew exactly what CP P offered and how beneficial it was; " I think people know about CP P but I don ' t think very many students use it. I think they are missing out. " Sophomore LSA student Gerald Montano agreed that CP P was not well used among students. " I ' m sure there are kids who use it, but I ' ve never been there and I ' m looking for an internship. I probably should go I guess, but I don ' t know, I think my resume is pretty good. " While that was likely true for Montano, other students without so much confidence took advantage of CP P. Like many of the University ' s resources, CP P was there to help, just in case.

At 4:30 pm, Hale Auditorium ' s doors closed with a full audience, leaving those who could not find a seat to disperse into various other rooms within the Business School in order to see the speech on a monitor. While it was almost an everyday event for a speaker to come to the Business School, this was not a typical businessperson. It was, after all, the former Secre- tary of State speaking. Bob Dolan, the Dean of the Business School, proudly introduced Madeleine Albright as the speaker of the 35th William Mclnally Memorial Lecture. Following a wealth of applause and photo-flashes, Albright thanked her audi- ence. She expressed the honor she felt at being recognized as a distinguished scholar in the William Davidson Institute, an educational think-tank affiliated with the Business School. She also jokingly announced that this meant that she was an old woman at 60. Albright made the connection between her work in global diplomacy with the Business School teachings, turn- ing to more serious issues. " I could talk about the chal- lenges of being a woman among men in my career, " she said, but this was not a time to talk about such things. Albright spoke of the September 1 1 tragedy, noting with concern a changing world. This was " the most dynamic moment since the Cold War ' s end, " she said, and relations between nations had shifted. She explained that the ap- proach to take was to expand trade and help everyone to succeed issues that the think-tank addressed. In short, a global vision was greatly needed. In her closing, Albright expressed how proud she was to be part of the Business School community. In the final words of her speech, she described Americans as " do-ers, " with no insurmountable frontiers. A lively discussion and a reception followed. Commenting on the significance of the speech with relation to the University, Bob Dolan said, " It is gatherings likethese, where intellectually interested people come together to try to gain a deeper understanding of the complexities of today ' s world, that are the treasures of the University of Michigan.

Going from lecture to lecture, students faced theirfears about the Vietnam War as they listened to professors preach about the world beyond Ann Arbor. In September, the University revitalized the teach-in. Held on September 18, this teach-in was designed to ad- dress the September 1 1 terrorists attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon and the loss of a sense of security that accompanied it. Organized by over 40 Univer- sity groups, the forum was an effort to stop rumors about Islam and was titled " Terrorism: A Perversion of Islam. " More than 100 students joined together in the Union Ball- room to learn more about the attacks that had put fear into their hearts. The panel included experts from the anthropology, his- tory, political science, and Near Eastern Studies depart- ments, as well as student speakers. The panelists com- mented on topics ranging from the history of the current crisis to political and social perspectives about the attacks. University Vice President for Student Affairs E. Royster Harper started the program by asking the crowd to be more open-minded about the ways in which they see and evaluate the world. " Until the attacks on September 11,1 had only observed the Muslim groups on campus. The teach-in helped me to actually see them, " Harper said. The teach-in was a way for experts to speak their minds and for students to take that in formation and make well- reasoned decisions. Sophomore industrial design major Kerry Silva attended the panel in order to gain a new way of looking at the attacks. " It is nice to know in a time like this our University can come togetherand deliver well-founded opinions and information about what happened. I just feel lucky that I go to a university that cares enough about students to help them through these horrible times, " said Silva. And that was just what the University did; it brought students and faculty together in order to ease the pain and the fear.

It was at this time that student teaching began. " Our usual collegiate actions will come down to a whis- per because we will have to go to bed so much earlier, " education senior Rebeca Hoppe said. " Some of us will have to take classes at the same time, but that is rare.There is just so much responsibility we haven ' t had before. " Preparation for the classroom began much soonerthan winter semester. Upon entering the School of Education, students were given a practicum through their teaching methods classes. This practicum was essentially a lesson each student must teach a group of students in front of his or her professor. " What you teach, why you teach it and how children learn the information putting this into practice is the best education we can get, " Hoppe said. Studentteacherswereassigned to a cooperative teacher with whose class they participated. During the first few weeks, students simply observed the classroom, looking for not just teaching methods but also child behaviors and reactions. Soon after, the real work began. Responsible forteaching a unit chosen by the coopera- tive teacher, student teachers were in the classroom all day. Dealing with parents, organizing field trips, planning curriculum and correcting papers kept the future educa- tors immersed. Student teachers were not just thrown into a classroom without any support. Field instructors School of Educa- tion faculty met weekly with a handful of student teach- ers whose respective schools were nearby. Field instruc- tors tweaked lesson plans, gave tips on delivery and passed along University information such as meetings and work- shop dates.

Most students found University libraries the most logical places to end up. Nevertheless, all the different libraries to choose from meant students were still forced to select the right atmo- sphere for them. Senior English major Edie Cooper frequently studied in the La w Library, stating that she liked it " because it ' s quiet and so beautiful and everyone there is serious and focused; it ' s very conducive to studying. " Access to a car gave students even more options of places to go, allowing them to venture to other areas of the Univer- sity, like North Campus. Megan Kern, a senior mathematical sciences major, said, " I love to study in the Media Union because it ' s open all night and there are comfortable chairs. " Other students, whose permanant homes were in Michigan, drove their cars home and escaped University life altogether. At home these students had a study session without the distractions of friends and night-life. Despite the availability of University facilities like libraries and unions, many students frequently found themselves in the local Ann Arbor restaurants and coffee shops. Alongside the general public, students were seen diligently working on math formulas or typing a paper on their personal computers. One such student, senior film and video major Tim Staack, said, " I usually study in cafes, like Starbucks or Espresso Royale Cafe, because I don ' t like really quiet places and I don ' t really like the library because of the constant cell phones and all the obnoxious people there. " Both Ann Arbor and the University offered an abundance of places for students to choose from in order to study.

The University invested morethan $500 million in the project, which fell roughly into three segment areas science research, science values, and science educa- tion. Emphasizing the importance of research in the areas of biological sciences, the University began by breaking ground on a series of new buildings, including a $100-million labora- tory Life Science Institute along Washtenaw Avenue and a 500,000 square-foot building on the Medical Campus. The new buildings were planned in order to house thirty new world-class researchers dedicated to the various disciplines of the life sciences. Moreover, the Initiative was the umbrella organization for another project called the Life Sciences, Values, and Society Program. The design of this program was to ask, debate, and answer the ethical issues raised by life science research, spark- ing discussion and action across the entire campus, not just in science-related fields. To implement these actions into the undergraduate expe- rience, University administrators focused on creating new classes in the life sciences. The goal was to prepare students for a society faced with the moral and political issues brought about by new research. " There is an intellectual revolution afoot in the life sci- ences one equivalent to the revolutions in chemistry in the 1800s and in physics in the 1900s, " said University President Lee C. Bellinger in a press release. " Advances in the life sci- ences are raising new questions about what it is to be human, how best to lead a human or humane existence, what it is to be a living organism on this planet, and other crucial ques- tions of human values that will reverberate throughout the social sciences, the humanities, the arts, and medicine.

" Lab assistants are required to take a ULAM mouse care semi- nar. Assistants help with basic lab duties that are necessary to the functioning of the lab. These duties include, but are not limited to, the care and management of a mouse colony, " Tupica ex- plained. Her explanation confirmed what not all students real- ized: the University ' s research base relied heavily on animal test- ing. ULAM, the Unit for Laboratory Animal Medicine, ensured that researchers gave humane care to animals. ULAM was the pro- vider of the animals as test subjects. " If we were not to make these trials on animals, we would have to make them on humans instead or else give up the hope of devising new drugs and new treatments, " philosophy Professor Carl Cohen said. He continued, " The justification commonly used for the refusal to use animals that it is an invasion of their rights. " That same justification was used by a group who, in 1 999, sent threatening letters to several research labs, including the Univer- sity. The FBI affiliated the group with the Animal Liberation Front (ALF), an organization known for using violence to free animals from what they deemed cruel testing. While the ALF ' s tactics were extreme and highly criticized, certain students on campus continued to share the belief of the immorality of animal testing. LSA senior Allison Hess, an advocate for animal rights, disap- proved of the University ' s testing techniques. " Animals will never be suitable models for human disease. The drug Thalidomide caused birth defects in more than 10,000 humans after being found safe on rats, mice, rabbits, dogs, hamsters and primates, while the drug penicillin kills guinea pigs, " said Hess. " In truth animal research is a long-standing tradition that produces results which are easily published and bring huge amounts of funding to universities. " There was cause for concern on both sides of the issue, and the conflict was not to be settled easily. Animal labs, however, remained fundamental to the medical research at the University. By Sarah Johnson Academics I 91 Believing that programs could be developed to enhance life at the University, President Lee C. Bellinger organized a Commis- sion on the Undergraduate Experience in the winter of 2000. Chaired by Provost Nancy Cantor, the Commission researched certain issues dealing with student life. Divided into three subcommittees, the Commission focused specifically on the issues of the University ' s diversity and complexity, the impor- tance of globalism, and the development of campus communi- ties. The findings of the subcommittees were gathered in the Undergraduate Report. President Bollinger said of the committee ' s effort, " I am deeply grateful for the Commission ' s thoughtful engagement with the myriad of issues arising from the undergraduate pro- gram. The recommendations are far-ranging, and I encourage thecampus community to spend time discussing and consider- ing the proposals. " One suggestion made by the report was to improve sopho- more year. It was believed that sophomores did not get the same supportthattheotheryears received. This belief stemmed from deep concern about sophomores ' lack of initiative and their lack of knowledge about career choices. One idea for improving sophomore initiative was requiring students to live in the dorms for a second year and creating residence halls that appeared more like the Residential College. Other suggestions included a symposium with more emphasis on advising and intellectual programs. ISA junior Mark Jane said of the aim to improve the sophomore experience, " I think it is false optimism to believe that adding course clusters and a sophomore sympo- sium would greatly increase a student ' s desire to decide on a career path at that time. " Among other proposals in the report was increasing the presence of faculty in residential and social settings and creat- ing a global, transnational emphasis, which included increas- ing the study abroad program.

Bollinger was named the 12th president of the Univer- sity in November 1 996. He ended his esteemed career at the University in December, succeeded by interim President B. Joseph White. Throughout his presidency, Bollinger was well known for his close connection with the University students and the relationship he created between the University and the city of Ann Arbor. From the yearly tradition of his Fun Run through Nichols Arboretum to the victory party in his house after Michigan ' s 1 997 football triumph over Penn State, from the Students of Color Coalition ' s 36-day take over of the Union tower in 2000 to the ongoing admissions lawsuits, Bellinger ' s presidency at the University was one of positive social growth and change amid a socially shifting nation of the 21st century. Students ' reactions to Bellinger ' s departure were primarily a combination of surprise, sadness and understanding. He was a president admired by many of the students, one that senior English major Matthew Borushko felt improved the University: " He proved a dedicated patron of the arts and humanities and I was continually impressed by his belief in the public university ' s role at the forefront of American society. " In general, seniors seemed most affected by the news that President Bollinger would not be finishing out the school year. Senior political science major Carrie Petroff remarked, " It will be sad to see him go. Although he must move on, as a senior I was disappointed that he couldn ' t even finish out the year. For seniors, thecommencement won ' t beas meaningful with a president who hardly knows ourclass. " Although it was understandable that President Bollinger wanted to leave to serve as president for his alma mater, senior English major Ramji Kaul was also discouraged by his premature departure in the midst of the ongoing events on campus. He com- mented, " With the pending lawsuits against the University and his extensive legal experience, it would have been nice to see him lead the school through its trial. But with all the great things he has done at this school it is obvious to see why Columbia is so interested in him. " Regardless of the mixed feelings left in the wake of his unanticipated step down from his presidency at the Univer- sity, University students and faculty bid the President a fond farewell.

For the most part, though, the focus of the drug scene had shifted to other drugs such as ec- stasy, photo by Kristin Stoner 98 | Drugs studentsgn ver wonder how many drugs other people are using? Most University students overestimated that amount. The truth is, however, " Vir- tually all numbers of students who are using anything at all are using alcohol, " stated Marsha Benz, Alco- hol Other Drug Health Education Coordinator for the University. Ac- cording to a 1 999 student life survey by the University of Michigan Sub- stance Abuse Research Center, 43% of students had used drugs in their lifetime. When it came to alcohol and to- bacco use, 25% of University stu- dents smoked cigarettes, which was equal to the national level. About half of University undergraduates participated in what the University identified as binge drinking. Drug use, though less prevalent than alcohol use on campus, was still pervasive. Forty-three percent reported using some form of drug for recreational use.The use of mari- juana and other illicit drugs in- creased in the 1 990s among college student across the United States. Marijuana proved to be the drug of choice. Student drug use did not stop there.Thirty-fourpercentof students indicated using prescription drugs for recreation use.Typically the drug of choice was tranquilizers such as Valium. " The best way to get pharmies is just ask someone who has a prescription for ' hyperactivity ' and pay them for their Ritalin, " ex- plained junior SNRE major Lauren Hoffman. Over-the-counter drugs were used as well, with the great majority of those being No-Doz or other stay- awake pills. " Sometimes you have so many assignments due in a day or a week, you can ' t help but to pull all- nighters. Vivarin is definitely a stu- arms dents best friend in that, " remarked senior political science major Mat- thew Schwartz. Mirroring the trends of the rest of society, socalled " Club Drugs " made their way ontocampusthispastyear. It was last reported that 6% of Uni- versity students were using inhal- ants, but that number dropped in the past year. The most common group of inhalents, nitrate inhalents such as Nitrous Oxide (otherwise known at Whip Its) were used much less frequently this past year due to an Ann Arbor ordinance prohibiting the sale of the confectionery ingre- dient. One convenience store man- ager expressed his anger at the city for removing that area of product, " Lotsof students would come in ask- ing for those. They were a big sale. " Ecstasy was a big seller this past year. " I feel like people are a lot more scared to use something like cocaine, being as how we are all DARE kids. They really drilled that stuff into your head, whereas E wasn ' t even a prob- lem in the early 90s, " remarked se- nior sociology major Sara Olson. The next level of club drugs, also known asdaterapedrugs,wereGHB or Rohypnol (roofies). From the first day they arrived oncampusstudents were made especially aware of the dangers of this drug. Afterthe death of ISA freshman Courtney Cantor in 1998, the University regents de- clared thatall residence hall students must receive a handout on GHB. Women especially were warned to never leave their drink unattended. " My friend was slipped roofies at a party, then while she was in a virtual state of unconscious she was raped. She didn ' t even know until the next day when she went for a shower, " disclosed alumni Rosa Neil. Aformer Resident Advisor in the all female dorm Stockwell, Neil took special care in sharing this story with her residents. Benz issued this caveat, " So much emphasis is being put on GHB that we tend to forget that al- cohol isthe most common date rape drug in the world. " Another subset of students were actually using the drugs with their knowledge. Its ap- peal was one that would have to consume fewer calories to get the drunkfeeling. Other students found an appeal in simply forgetting the nights activities. Most students did not share this sentiment. One of the traditionally referred to illicit drugs, LSD, was only used by 7% of students. Other drugs were not used much on thiscampus.Only 4% of students had used a form of Methamphetamine (i.e. crystal meth) and barely 1% had reported using heroine or crack cocaine. Co- caine in otherforms was used at one time or another by almost 4% of students. Thirteen percent of stu- dent nationwide were using these types of hard drugs. Overall it was proven that stu- dents perceptions of reality were often self-fulfilling. Students tended to bedrinkinguptowhatthey imag- ined the social norm to be. This was also true of drug use. Students were using if they thought others were using. To counteract these forces, the University established a social norms media campaign. The community context of drug use was also quite relevant. " You are with your friends when these things happen, not with adminis- trators. The responsibility lies not only in the hands of the Univer- sity, but also with the community. Benz agreed, stating that the Uni- versity can only do so much and, " (If the use becomes a problem) it is the patients responsibility to get help on their own.

Most pet owners did not feel like their companions were of any imposition to the building, so it was hard for them to fathom why a landlord would be so heartless as to tell them their loved ones were not allowed. The University was probably one of the most prohibited realms for animal lovers. Residence halls only allowed pets on a very limited ba- sis. Birds, cats, dogs, reptiles and most other animals were not al- lowed. Fish were allowed, but also on a limited basis. They were re- stricted to 12-gallon tanks and could not include the " flesh eating (e.g. piranha) species. " The Univer- sity also required that all room- mates approve of the pet. Family housing was less restrictive - resi- dents were able to keep up to 30- gallontanks.The adjustment could be difficult for many University stu- dents accustomed to having an animal around. First year LSA stu- dent Jane Middeton shared, " I miss my cat a lot, but it is probably a good idea the Univeristy doesn ' t allow them. Lots of people are aller- gic. " Most students who wished to find or keep a pet chose alternative housing where they could find some more freedom. Some hous- ing within the Ann Arbor commu- nity permitted pets, butfinding this could sometimes be difficult. Jen Langel, a seniorfilm and video stud- ies major, had to do a lot of work to find h ousing to suit her and her cat, Merigold. " There was only one place which fit within my price range and accepted cats. It really limited my housing search a lot, " Langel said. Many students simply ignored the no-pets policy. Psychology se- nior Dustin Miner chose to do just that. " We checked the lease and it says no pets, but there is no men- tion of a fee. We just hide our dog Bella wheneverthe landlord comes over. Our previous landlord as- sumed that shejust stayed outside. " Other students actually negoti- ated to have their pets live with them. Carrie Degner,a second-year dental hygiene student, and her roommates had to pay an extra nonrefundabledepositfortheirdog Alyeska to stay with them. One of Denger ' s roommates, Kristen David, was a veterinary technician and sometimes took animals home with her. " If they are healthy, I cannot bear to see them just get put to sleep. It is hard if there are no homes for them so I open up mine for them, " David commented. Even when one had found an accepting landlord, roommates may not have been so pleased to have the company of the animals. " There is pet dander everywhere. My roommate ' s cats make me by liz mauck sneeze, and I ' m annoyed that I agreed to let them live here. She never cleans up after them, " re- marked University alumni Kelly Kozma. Clare Nathan, a graduate student in philosophy, lived with her dog Max in a single apartment free from theentanglementofroommatedis- putes. " I ' m not too worried about Max even though he is not sup- posed to be there. The further you get away from campus the easier it is to have a dog, " she said. Living in a student co-op was not much of an option, either. Most houses did not allow uncaged pets. However, " any policy can be j changed by a vote at the individual house, " said Rebecca Nole, a senior social anthropology major and In- ter-Cooperative Council employee. The exceptions to the rule were certified animals that assisted people with disabilities as per fed- eral and state law. Although the University in particular had to ac- commodate these animals for liv- ing, individual landlords sometimes chose to imply that the tenant would be better suited finding an- other place to live. Ultimately, students either put themselves at a travel, financial or other disadvantage or, even worse, put the security of themselves and their pets at risk. It was a tough choice whether to include a pet in a living situation, but one which most pet owners would agree was a re- warding one.

The Students Rights Comm ission, a subsidiary of the Michigan Student Assembly, with the help of the Univer- sity chapter of the ACLU, fought to educate students about their right to have parties without police interference. photv hy Liz Mauck 102 I Student Activism ne university by liz mauck otactMsm ctivism was pervasive throughout the University ' s campus; in fact it was contagious. Nearly any time of day, any day of the year that you passed through the Diag, you were almost certain to find someone mak- ing a statement about something. What the issue of the day was, how- ever, unquestionably, had two or more voices contributing. One platform for speech was the Michigan Student Assembly,or MSA. Historically, MSA was plagued by representatives who used the orga- nization to make statements about non-University issues. Many stu- dents felt like MSA representatives took themselves too seriously, " I mean get real. Who are you to be making ' resolutions ' about the USA support in country XYZ? You areMSA not the US senate, " exclaimed se- nior Sonya Sutherland. The organi- zation, however, seemed to be mak- ing a turn around this past year in its focus of issues. MSA president Matt Nolan a junior history and political science major commented, " MSA has been much more effective and on taskthisyear. " A concurrent opin- ion was joined by Chris Miller a jun- ior history and political science ma- jorandtheassemblyVoiceyourVote chair, " Matt [Nolan] and Jessica [Cash] have done a much better job of keeping MSA business within U of M affairs. " Nevertheless, some representa- tives did not feel like this was the role they wanted for the assembly. The theory was that if an issue was important to a representative, and the students voted the representa- tive into office, then the issue must be important to the students and in turn the University. " I disagree. I do not support resolutions that MSA can have no effect on, " proclaimed junior business major John Carter the Student General Counsel. This frustration about the role of MSA came to a head this past year when ISA junior and MSA representative Fadi Kiblawi resigned calling MSA an, " Illegitimate governing body. " Despite the general student opin- ion of the group, and its past tribula- tions, more of an effort has been made for MSA to focus on things like its ' Campus Improvement Task Force ' , ' This is something students can see and relate to, " concluded Nolan. Most stagesforactivism were not based in the strict political realm, butoutinthecommunity ' lfthereis something out there of interest to you, go and do it, " commented jun- iorcomparative literature major Elise Halajian. Most studentsdid. " Groups in general, they seem to do their fair share of activism behind the scenes with pamphleteering on the side, " philosophy graduate student Rob Gressis stated. A few groups made their faces very recognizable, though. TheCoa- lition to Defend Affirmative Action by Any Means Necessary (BAMN) was met with several challengesthis year. ' They just shout at everyone. No one can even hear what they are saying, " assessed ISA senior Jordan Farris.This was the basis that caused several students to create the group Students Supporting Affirmative Action. Julie Bertoni an ISA senior shared in some of the sentiment about BAMN, " I totally agree with the Muslim Students Association. BAMN piggybacks onto other people ' s issues without regard for the groups dislike for any associa- tion with BAMN. " BAMN had asked students to wear hajibs or green armbands in solidarity of the Mus- lim community in response to the events of September 1 1 . However, the group did not consult with the effected studentgroupspriorto their beginning this campaign. Echoing Bertoni ' s resentment of the organization, junior Ben Conway commented, " Among my other ac- tions, I am actively working to get BAMN off campus. " In full scout rega- lia with a rainbow ribbon pinned to his lapel, Conway, a classic language and literature major, went to speak to the regents about their support for the United Way. Despite the Uni- versity policy against discrimination, the University supported the United Way and encouraged it students and staff to do the same. The United Way received a lot of press this past year due to the controversy about its sup- port of the Boy Scouts of America whodidnotallowforassociationwith homosexuals. Conway was a scout nearly every year since he was eight and also served asanAssistantScout- master. Conway also is the Co-Chair of Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, and Transgenders(LGBT). Conway hoped to have the University replace the United Way with an alternative phil- anthropic organization. " Hopefully the regents will be responsive to our demands and the oaths they have take, " Conway stated. No matter what students felt about the effectiveness of the visible approaches to change, there was al- waystheoptionforthemtotaketheir own approach. As Nolan frankly put it, " Put your money where your mouth is and get involved. " Voices! 103 Enjoying a Friday afternoon, junior English major An- drew Ladd utilizes his front porch.

They walk past and want tojoin in, " said Leimone. photo hv Liz Mauck 1041 Porches nangra orcn by liz mauck outdoor arenas of a home nave lent themselves to both study- ing and partying, both favorite pas- imes of University students. Porches, a vibrant part of the Uni- versity community with their many features and uses, were loved and sought by many University stu- dents. In fact, some students val- ued a good porch almost as much as their own bedroom. " It ' s cool how everyone hangs out outside smoking or drinking. Walking down the block , it ' s like ' Hey, can I sit there? ' " said Leor Barak, a political science senior. Ruth Lahti, an English senior, ap- preciated her porch as well: " We love to sit out here and study or just enjoy the weather. " A porch was not only a place for students to relax, but also added a decisive element to the area. " I re- ally enjoy just sitting out here and just catching rays. Almost our en- tire block has full porches, " com- mented Alexis Allegra, a senior psy- chology major. Allegra ' s housemate Kristen Benner, a civil engineering senior, agreed: " It adds a really nice dynamic to the neighborhood to see everyone out of their house. " A porch and its many potential components attracted University students to houses with them. " We have quite the quality porch. Not only do we have the biggest one on the block, we ' ve got a beer pong table which gets nearly daily use, " declared Andrew Stone a junior engineering student. S. L senior Dustin DeSnyder concurred, ' The swing definitely adds a crucial ele- ment to the porch. " Seth Green, an LSA senior, actually had two porches at his house ' That definitely spoils us, " he said. Reflective of the Midwestern set- ting, the old houses that many stu- dents resided in played an often- overlooked dynamic in their party life. " I have a lot of friends that go to Western [Michigan University] and [Michigan] State [University]. They party ontheir porches like we do. Some of my other friends live in parts of the country where all of their parties are indoors. Their houses just are not as cool, " shared Leslie Guidotti, a sophomore psy- chology major. Porches and their lackadaisical environment lent themselves to many varieties of diversion and en- tertainment. " You see a lot of ac- tion if you sit out here on a Thurs- day, Friday, or Saturday. There are always drunk people stumbling down the block or people scream- ing out of cars, " reported Daniel Blair, a junior anthropology major. University alumTom Kay had a more celebratory take on his porch expe- rience. " We play red car blue car, " he said. " When a red car drives past, if you are the first one to call it, everyone else on the porch drinks. " A lot of Ann Arbor housing had alternative forms of outdoor seat- ing. " We don ' t have a porch, but we sure love our balcony! " asserted SNRE senior Elise Zipkin. Erin Scheffler, an LSA senior, climbed out her window to a roof section she called a porch: " I sort of have my own private porch above the one for the whole house; only my window accesses it. " Adam Eli, an archeology junior, reflected on his deck times: " Study- ing is a very popular pasttime on this porch. Actually just about ev- erything is a favorite pasttime on this porch. " University students were lucky in the way that housing was structured. Many students at other universities did not have the porch element as part of their living environment.

The fact was that it was not usually alcohol or other drugs that forced people out of their homes. There we re a variety of pressures thatcouldforcea person into the streets, and even more that kept them there. Many people were already living paychecktopaycheckandthelossofa job or a sudden illness could have meant a person was not able to pay rent. Or even more dramatically, the jobs they still maintained did not pay atalevelthatallowedthemtopayrent, buy meals or food, or pay for health care. In reality, 40-70 percentof people without homes worked . Despite work- ing, for many peoplejobsdidnotguar- antee a home. This was exacerbated by the lack of affordable housing intheWashtenaw area. Most of the new houses built in the area were directed towards the upper-middle class income bracket, not the lowest one. The department of Michigan State Housing and Urban Development, along with the city of Ann Arbor, workedtoalleviatesomeof this stress in availability.On the agenda of priority categorieswastocreatemore affordable housing, and maintain the existingaffordable housing. Ann Arbor also received a $1 .4 million loan from MSHUDto back this project. The sheer availability of housing in general did not mean that it was avail- able to all. Getting approved for the available housing was quite a chore. " I don ' thaveany credit so noonewill rent to me, " comment ed Robert, a home- less man who resided in Ann Arbor. In the short-term, however, there was a wide breadth of shelters avail- ableforthose in need. Among the vari- ety of emphasis, some focused on the needsofwomen,otherswereoriented toward family affairs, while still others were open to all. The Shelter Associa- tion of Washtenaw County was com- mitted to " provide temporary shelter and supportive services in a safe and caring environment,andworkwith the community to allocate the necessary resources to meet the needs of people who were homeless. " Tanya Ward, a case manager for the association, re- marked, " It is important to listen to people and not make generalizations about homeless people. " Problems that led to homelessness were as diverse as the solutions to them. Another dimension of the fight againsthomelessness battled hunger. In 1976 the Ann Arbor Hunger Coali- tion joined the fight against hunger with the mission to " provide free nutri- tious,hotmealsintheeveningtothose withoutthemeanstoprovideforthem- selves. Meals were served in a manner that respectsthedignity of all individu- als. All were welcome atthe meal with- out any procedure for ' screening for need. ' " The group served over 30,000 meals during the year, with over 125 people every evening. Local churches with large kitchens and seating spaces rotated by daytoact as thegroundsfor this service. Rev. John Jackson of the Interfaith Hospitality Network said, " It ' s really changed ourattitudeaboutwho the homeless are; people with jobs, people with children. Our prejudices have been dealt with through this pro- gram. " Other organizations were getting involved in the fight against some of the roots of homelessness. Fordecades, Dawn Farm had been a source of help and hope for those in the grips of alco- hol and drugs. Recently the staff began focusing on the link between homelessness and substance abuse. " Sobriety is the only way to self-suffi- ciency, " said Dawn Farm President Jim Balmer. " Breaking the cycle requires a transitional facility that supports ad- dicts and alcoholics who are chroni- callyhomelessandunemployed.That ' s something Ann Arbor has never had. " Substance abuse was a sticky area whenitcametohomelessness.Therewere many who held the above opinion, and then there was the reality of the matter. " People wonder ifweare going to use the moneyfrom panhandlingto buy alcohol. Of course we are. What else are we going to do all day? If s the only way to pass the time, " commented Robert. Roberthad called Ann Arbor ' s streets his home for over two years. He did not utilizethesheltersystem, ashebelieved it to be too restrictive. He faced many other problems: not only where to lay his head atnight, but wheretowash it in the mom- ing. The Homeless Empowerment Rela- tionship Organization (HERO) worked withthosewhowerehomelessoratahigh risk of becoming homeless to enter into their Pathfinders program.

Many had dreamed it, most would continue to dream about it, but only a few students actually followed through with their dreams of be- coming a rock star. The heavy demands of being a University student precluded many from pursuing the idea of forming a band, but not the men of Oblivion. " It was amazing how easily it came together, " commented Tres Crow, a senior history major and front- manforthebandOblivion. " Wejust put up signs that said something like ' looking for singers, songwriters, instrument players for metal punk pop whatever some- thing different band. ' " Nate Zamarron, one of Crow ' s band- mates and a civil engineering sophomore, concurred, " It was es- pecially cool how the band just sort of formed on its own. " Onceabandwastogether,itwas a whole other set of challenges both to keep it together and to keep it together with purpose. " We got re- ally lucky how it seems that every- one just gets along. I know of a lot of bands that are not so fortunate, " commented Chris Lee, the bassist for Donkey Punch, a ska band com- prised of University students. But just finding people who wanted to play and who happened to also like each other did not nec- essarily spell success. Finding gigs to play and spreading the word about the band proved more chal- lenging. " We have established a pretty good relationship with The Blind Pig, but getting shows in De- troit is a lot more difficult. Clear Channel Communications is basi- cally a huge clearinghouse for all of the booking for clubs in Detroit. It ' s hard to get in with them, but once you do you ' re set for a while, " said Aaron Brink, a senior clinical psy- chology major. " We have some cool connections, though. Like for ex- ample we are going to go play in Madison because we met another band with whom we are trading shows. We let them open for us here in exchange for them letting us do one of their shows. " Taking the band to the next level was a tough decision to process. " I ' m fairly sure that Donkey Punch will be over in a year, but then again we thought it was going to end a while ago, " commented Lee. Brink said, " Seeing as how we are all seniors everyone will be mov- ing on to the next stage. " On theoppositeend, LSA sopho- more Ben Umanov of the band Oblivion stated, " We are hoping to make this work in the long haul. This is bigger than Michigan. " We actually just got offered a contract for this group to do pro- motions for us and to find us gigs. They had offered to work with us on CD distribution, but we pretty much have that under control, " Umanov shared. The band recently recorded theirfirst album at Middle Earth studios outside Detroit. " We got a sweet deal in studio time be- cause our manager knows the owner. He does all of the sound workfor us too. " Donkey Punch was blessed with a cheap deal on studio time as well; " There is just no way we would have been able to afford things otherwise. We have a band fund which pays for a lot of our costs, but studio time can really get expensive, " commented Lee. The cost of running a band is not to be overlooked either. " Those guys owe me so much money it ' s not even funny. I told them that they have to buy me beer all year and late night pizza on demand, " joked Umanov. " We pay for most of our costs like CD production out of our payment from gigs. " Money issues aside, keeping the band a priority could be diffi- cult. " We have practice once a week because it is too hard to get people together more than that, " commented Brink. Jason Evans, a member of Oblivion, said, " It can be kind of hard some times. This is definitely a higher priority for some of us than for others of us, " Despite the difficulties of hav- ing a successful band, a few groups managed to get it to- gether. For a great deal it was a matter of what the individuals wanted. Each level was a struggle, but success came with work. Student bands were mostly just playing for the love of music, and with the pipe dream that they would be the one in a million to make it.

Itcame in different forms with different feelings and beliefs. Faith was the intangible sense that bridged thegap between the facts that one could justify to others and the truths known in one ' s heart. Students ' faith was tested, strengthened, unaffected in some, and completely transformed in others. " The events of this year have called into question every belief that I ever had. I have found myself questioning the existence of a higher power and whether that being is vengeful or not, " com- mented junior political science major Jon Roth. Roth ' s sentiment was echoed by many other University students. Tighe Herren, a chemical engineer- ing senior, said that, " In all honesty, [my faith] hasn ' t changed. The events [of this year] have only reaf- firmed my belief that mankind will continue to destroy itself. " Lauren Mills, an ISA sophomore, said herfaith was unaffected since she said that she did not believe in God. One anonymous University student sadly noted, " The more the year goes on the less faith I have in this country. When I hear about the terrorist questioning, and the rest of that nonsense, I can ' t tell myself in earnest that we ' re changing for the better. " Not everyone felt this way, though. Faith for some individuals, whatever its nature, grew stronger during the year. " My faith has defi- nitely grown stronger. I ' ve noticed this to be the overall trend, " said a student who wished to remain anonymous. Jim Miller, an ISA sophomore, also said that specifi- cally his faith in God had been in- vigorated: " I ' m more appreciative of all the things He has given me, myfamily,and myfriends. " Another anonymous student said, " My faith has grown stronger and my love and appreciation for what I have today has grown. What happened this year really made me think of God and life and death and has made me believe more in my be- liefs and outlooks of life. " Faith in some was unshaken, though. " My faith has been unaf- fected. Why would it be? Bad things happen throughout history. Al- though September 1 1 was a trag- edy, my faith in God and mankind was unaffected, " shared Jason Pietryga. Jason Balon, a junior ma- joring in economics, said that, " the events of this yea r ha ve not affected my faith or that of those around me. " This stance was one of the many perspectives of University students. One of the students who sat in that group was Danny Yousif, a first-year student, who said that his faith had always been and remained strong. Faith could be something that was not only a strictly personal emotion, but also affected how one related to his or her loved ones and society. With University mem- berscomingtogripswithhowthey were going to adjust their faith, the self was not separable from the whole. Another University stu- dent who asked to remain anony- mous said that he too had more faith than before: " This year ' s events have definitely strength- ened the faith of my family and friends.

With Jesse Jackson as its key note speaker, the affirmative action rally addressing the suit against the University ' s law school appealed to the social activist in us. The Kiss-in allowed us to be open about our sexuality and to support our fellow students though tolerance and acceptance. Cultural events such as Shakespeare in the Arb, the Royal Shakespeare Company, and Marcel Marceau ' s performance exposed us to world renowned performers. Our inner child came out to play during the annual Kids Fair, and we pushed our limits for 30 grueling hours to benefit Mott Children ' s Hospital at Dance Marathon. Eve Ensler challenged our vocabularies and our ideas about sex roles with the perfor- mance of " Vagina Monologues.

Since the Law School race-based admissions case went to trial the following day, " Commitment and Renewal " was chosen as the theme for Martin Luther King Day, acknowl- edging the University ' s continued commitment to Dr. King ' s message. Leading up to and following MLK Day, those inter- ested could attend seminars, movie screenings, discussions and even children ' s activities pertaining to civil rights issues.

Olmos used a blend of humor and gravity to convey his message that the nation needed to bring its attention to the contributions of minorities to society that have often been ignored. Following the keynote address, the Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action and Integration and Fight for Equality By Any Means Necessary (BAMN), along with supporters and students from Detroit high schools, marched and held a rally on the steps of the Harlan Hatcher Graduate Library, despite a clash with protesters from the Black Student Union. BAMN declared its dedication to continue Dr. King ' s work through its support of affirmative action policies. " Overall, at the end of the day I felt certain that the new civil rights movement is alive and well, " said senior econom- ics major Rebecca Madden-Sturges.

The monologues were a work of art honoring the female anatomy, and also promoted the voice of womankind while wholeheartedly discourageding violence against women. Ensler composed them by interviewing more than 500 women, and then crafted a show of 1 8 of their monologues. Admission was free, although donations were welcome and came pouring in at the end of the show.The monologues aided both Planned Parenthood and SAFE House, with dona- tions originally planned to be split fifty-fifty. Since abortions were performed at Planned Parenthood, MSA ' s choic e to give donations to the organization drew harsh criticism from some and led to a group of protestors picketing outside of the Michigan Theater. Despite the controversy, the show was a huge success, with ticket lines around the corner of the theater. Sopho- more engineering student Katie Herta commented, " I abso- lutely loved the show. The monologues were so well-acted by University students and were portrayed in a way that really touched me. It made me proud to be a woman. " Several other " Vagina Monologues " were also performed throughout the year, which only helped to prove the success of Ensler ' s piece and draw attention to women ' s issues.

" Bip, " Marceau ' s alter ego created in 1947, went through scores of adventures based on Marceau ' s actual life trials. Most famous of these acts were " The Cage, " " The Mask Maker, " and " The Public Garden " with his signature masterpiece titled " Youth, Maturity, Old Age and Death. " It has been said of this last piece that Marceau captured in two minutes what writers could not do in volumes. During World War II, Marceau joined the Resistance effort in France, helping Jewish chil- dren escape to Switzerland. He also joined the French army and fought along side the U.S. troops in 1 944. Fast-forward 57 years past many memorable works and deeds and Mr. Marceau could be seen standing on the stage at Rackham Auditorium giving the 11th University Wallenberg Lecture and receiving the Wallenberg Medal. This presti- gious honor was established in 1 985 to commemorate alum- nus Raoul Wallenberg and " to recognize those whose own courageous actions and or writings call to mind his extraor- dinary accomplishments and human values. " Wallenberg was born in 1 91 2 in Sweden and after gradu- ating from the U-M College of Architecture in 1935, worked as a representative for a central European trading company. He came in contact with many Jewish refugees through his work, and was sent on a rescue mission to Budapest in 1 944 by the Swedish Foreign Ministry. Wallenberg confronted German and Hungarian guards, and in a three-month period, hesecured the releaseof about 15,000 Jews whom heclaimed were under Swedish protection. In addition to receiving the honor of the Wallenberg Medal, Marceau, while in Ann Arbor, was awarded the Uni- versity Musical Society Distinguished Artist Award. He also conducted two week long workshops, one for professional mimes and another for dancers.

Set in Schiller Hall, " 2001 Hastings Street " chronicled the day that a young woman imagined that she spent in 1945 with her grandmother and her peers, the Y-Gees. As each character took the spotlight, their stories wove together to form a narrative of the events that happened in Detroit from 1920 to their present.

They wanted to alleviate the frus- tration of being helpless by making music, which wasan everyday outlet forthem. They also felt it was necessary to allow the Uni- versity students an outlet for their sorrow and grief. Musicians used their music as a healing force to bring the University to- gether and give students, faculty and Ann Arbor residents a place to come together and no longer feel alone or scared. The concert took place on September 1 4 in a packed Hill Auditorium. The aura of the auditorium was very somber and emotional as everyone dealt with their feelings. More than 500 performers took part in the con- cert, which was titled " A Musical Medita- tion. " Some of the performers included the University and Chamber choirs, the Univer- sity and Philharmonic Orchestras, and the men ' s and women ' s glee clubs. School of Music Dean Karen Wolff said of the concert, " People said it was the first moment of beauty since the attack. " Such songs as Johannes Brahms ' s " Ger- man Requiem, " Mahler ' s " Symphony No. 3 " and even the " Star Spangled Banner " were performed.

Sponsored by the Ann Arbor Summer Festival, the con- cert showcased songs from Merchant ' s new album Mother- land, her first album since 1 997 ' s Ophelia. The audience was treated to a wonderfully eclectic ensemble of new songs such as the Arabic and Egyptian inspired and politically relevant " The House Is On Fire " to the bluesy " Build a Levee. " " It was just a great show. She was very entertaining and got really close to and talked to audience. She is just such a great performer, " said first-year student Hagene Lee. What really brought the audience to its feet was the interjection of her much-loved hits. By the time she sang " Wonder, " the sides of the auditorium were filled with danc- ing and swaying fans. While it seemed that Merchant was going to call it an early night, she hinted at an encore. The audience stood clapping and yelling for five minutes before rousing the singer to an encore and was well-rewarded with four more songs from her album released on November 1 3. In a surprising second encore, Merchant took requests from the audience and joked over her lack of memory of some of the songs mentioned.

The north tower was the first building struck in the terrorist attacks of September 11. pfwto courtesy of Tfie Associated Press Leople around the world watched in horror in the early morning of that Tuesday in September when the face of America changed forever. Beginning at 8:48 a.m., an American Airlines flight with 92 people on board crashed into the 1 10th floor of the North Tower of the World Trade Center. Less than 20 minutes later, a United Airlines flight with 65 people on board crashed into the South Tower. People watched from the streets below and on televisions across the nation as people jumped from the towers in desperate attempts to escape the inferno in the sky. When they thought it could not possibly become more horrific, an American Airlines flight with 64 passengers and crew mem- bers on board crashed into the Pentagon at 9:43 a.m., killing some 800 people. Across the nation, numbers were frantically dialed in attempts to contact those loved ones in the buildings or even in the general area, only to discover that it was virtually impossible to get through with the jammed phone lines and non-serviceable cellular phones. Five minutes later, the FAA barred all aircraft takeoffs across the country and rerouted international flights to Canada. Ap- proximately five minutes after this announcement, the night- mare worsened as the South Tower ' s frame buckled from the intense heat on its top floors and collapsed, creating a dust cloud that covered Manhattan. As people continued to watch in hopes that the North Tower could somehow be salvaged, a United flight crashed into the outskirts of Somerset, Pennsylvania at 1 0:1 a.m. All the flights that were hijacked by the terrorists left from varied airports in the northeast but all flights were headed to California, a coincidence many people were unable to look past. Then at 1 0:29, less than two hours after it was hit, the North Tower of the World Trade Center collapsed to the earth, adding to the pile of smoldering metal and cloud of dust its sister tower first created and changing the skyline of Manhattan and the hearts of Americans forever. New Yorkers, as well as people all over the country, raced to the closest Red Cross eager to donate blood in hopes of the discovery of survivors amid the rubble.The country virtually shut down; all flights were cancelled indeterminantly, Disney World and Disney Land were immedi- ately evacuated, all sports and performances were called off, the stock market was closed for four days, and the Emmys Awards Show scheduled for only five days later was cancelled.

The New York Police Department saw some of its members perish in the terrorist attacks as well. Where the department typically loses one to two members in any given year, 23 members were lost in a single day.

" The country will forever be indebted and grateful for the selfless acts of those heroes lost in their blind determination to save their fellow man. by tiffany marsch R Ludolph Giuliani was more than a mayor, a friend or a leader to the people; he was an inspiration. He was named Person of the Year by Time, an honor once shared by Bill Clinton and Theo dore Roosevelt. Giuliani created more headlines for newspapers while being New York ' s mayorthan any other mayor before him. Yet, it was not until after the September 1 1 attacks that he became the man of the year. Directly after the attacks he stepped in by organizing the firefighters, helping the victims and addressing the nation on thestate of New York. He never carried disappointment in his voice; he was strong, dedicated and con- fident in restoring the essence of New York, because he believed in and loved his city. " After the attacks I did not know what to think. Yet every time I turned on the television I saw Giuliani helping out in some way and that gave me back a little hope. It gave me back confidence in my home state of New York, " said sophomore English major Anna Zogas. The reaction from people gave way to talk about re-electing him as mayor.

Officials promised that when regular flights resumed, safety would be the priority. New policies in- cluded the elimination of curbside luggage check-in, the pres- ence of more uniformed security officers and random inspec- tions. Only passengers with tickets were permitted onto the airport concourses and the sky marshals program was rein- stated. Passengers were instructed to arrive three hours early for flights to allow adequate time to pass through the heightened security checkpoints. Most people happily accepted the longer waits as evidence that the airline industry was taking the security issue seriously. Some questioned how improved the new security measures really were when a man was able to slip a stun gun and several knives past security checkpoints although not onto an air- plane at Chicago ' s O ' Hare International Airport. Similar inci- dents of passengers managing to bring weapons on planes despite the beefed-up security occurred across the country. While airports received the most attention, they were not the only ones affected by the need for increased security. Interna- tional borders also placed tighter restrictions on how they con- ducted business. People wishing to cross the Mexican or Cana- dian border were questioned more thoroughly and subject to random car searches and substantially longer waits. by elizabeth sprang the stock market takes a tumb e economy already in jeopardy was dealt a severe blow by the terrorist attacks of September 1 1 . With thousands of jobs cut or in danger of being cut, consumers were insecure about the market and initially unwilling to spend their money. The first major test of the economy ' s resilience was the re- opening of the stock market, which had shut down for its longest period since the Great Depression. On September 1 7, there was much nervous anticipation as the bell rang to open trading on Wall Street for thefirst time since the attacks. In efforts to encour- age spending, the Federal Reserve lowered interest rates prior to the market ' s re-opening but as feared, stocks plummeted shortly after trading began. Not surprisingly, the airline industry took a heavy hit with shares falling as much as 65 percent. While the 1 32 I Attack on America market activity was disappointing, it was expected. Analysts explained that after several days without trading, it was neces- sary for people to move their money around considerably, claim- ing that this accounted for the sour market. They told the public not to worry, the market would regain its value. Although in the following weeks the market did recover, the nation ' s economy still faced substantial problems. Consumer confidence fell to its lowest level since 1 994 and around 41 5,000 jobs were cut in the month following the attacks. As the unemployment rate rose, the government announced that the country was officially in a recession. It was a difficult period for the nation, as the terrorists had struck not only the people but the economy as well. by elizabeth sprang ...danger in the mail ' hortly after the terrorist attacks, people began specu- lating about the possibility of other forms of terrorism which could possibly threaten the nation. Apprehension grew as topics like biological weapons and germ warfare became part of every- day conversation. The fears became reality when it was an- nounced that an editor of a Florida magazine had contracted inhalation Anthrax. His death on October 5 was the nation ' s first Anthrax casualty following the terrorist attacks. Cases of Anthrax exposure were reported all over the country in the following days. Letters containing the white powder were sent to members of the media, including NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw, and politi- cal personnel, like Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle. The handwritten letters consisted of short, disturburbing sentences such as " You cannot stop us! Death to America! " Government facilities were closed and swept for bacteria, from the US Capitol to the New York governor ' s office. Concerns mounted when two postal workers in Washington, D.C. died and others sought treat- ment for Anthrax exposure. One particularly chilling element of the Anthraxattacks was the uncertainty of who had orchestrated them. Unlike theterrorists who had lefta pa pertrail of credit card receipts and were easily identified, there was virtually no way to determine who had mailed the deadly letters. In attemptsto release thetension,thegovernmentfrequently reminded the public to use caution when opening their mail, detailed the symptoms for Anthrax and encouraged people to seek treatment if they believed they had been exposed. by elizabeth sprang the empire strikes back O nee the reality of September 1 1 had set in, Ameri- cans wanted to respond to the attackers and an overwhelming majority wanted that response to be in the form of military action. The government had all but assured that retaliation would take place; the only question was when. The answer came on October 7, when the United States joined with British forces in air strikes over Afghanistan. The initial mission of the combined effort was to bomb Osama bin Laden ' s training camps. A hu- manitarian operation, which dropped thousands of packaged food rations for the Afghan citizens, occurred simultaneously with the air assault. With the mission to overthrow the Taliban, the air strikes continued for weeks and wore down theTaliban defensive capa- bilities. The Northern Alliance advanced into each city held by the Taliban and fought until the Taliban was forced to retreat. After the Northern Alliance gained control of the capitol city of Kabul, it was only a matter of time before the Taliban surren- dered. The Northern Alliance then had the responsibility of set- ting up a new form of government for Afghanistan, while the United States sought to bring the former Taliban leaders to justice for the September 1 1 terrorist attacks. by elizabeth sprang Dressed for combat and carrying weap- ons, U.S. Marines leave their base to take positions in the desert near Kandahar.

In the much-antici- pated decision, President Bush said he would allow for federal funding of research using only existing stem cell lines, allowing forscientistsaroundthecountry to further research on Parkinson ' s and Alzheimer ' s disease using these stem cell lines. A stem cell is a cell that can develop into any kind of tissue, originating from an embryo at its developmental stage. This means that the cells have not declared themselves, and thus can be programmed into such cells as cardia, neuro or skeletal muscle. Having made the decision, the issue at stake was that President Bush, in allow- ing for research to be done on existing stem celllines, would have to grapple with the push for research on stem cell lines that needed to be developed. In developing such cells, embryos are killed in the process, and thus the issue of preserving potential life is at stake. Though there was the notion to use embryos that had been discarded from fertility clinics, President Bush denied the suggestion and firmly stated that research may be done only on existing cells. The president spent over two months research- ing the background before making his decision, and did so with utmost care, declaring that it was a " complex and difficult issue.

Resi- dents of California cities faced random blackouts last summer due to a severe energy shortage, photo by El:zabe:h Spmng C alifornia citizens were zapped with rolling blackouts, a result of a heavy shortage of electricity. In no systematic order, units of real estate called ' blocks ' suffered unannounced power outages at the hands of electric companies seeking to avoid overload. The San Francisco Bay area experienced significant droughts, as rapid structural and industrial expansion had far exceeded the growth of electrical capacity. Many angry residents suspected California ' s air quality legis- lation was the culprit, preventing alternate power companies from expanding and thus straining the electrical plants. How- ever, energy experts revealed that the shortage merely reflected an unstable business atmosphere; pending laws and proposals of the past decade left energy companies unsure of future limi- tations and reduced expansive investment accordingly. The electrical companies still pointed their fingers at govern- ment constraints. Fixed rates supposedly hampered operating capability by whittling away at profits. Without the ability to generate revenues in parallel with a growing market, electrical companies claimed that they were thrown into a habit of run- ning at a subsidized loss. Rolling blackouts were the fairest way to distribute their limited supply of electricity. For the future, California businesses need to implant plans of reduced electrical usage and even backup power sources. Some businesses maintained operation through diesel generators. For prospective industries, California continued to look like a less attractive market for settlement. by eric rajala 134 I National News crash in queens a royal catastrophe O, nly a day after the two-month anniversary of the September 1 1 tragedy, New Yorkers were shaken again as they witnessed yet another plane crash and the tremendous fire and smoke that ensued. An American Airlines jet slammed into Rockaway, a residential neighborhood in Queens, just minutes after takeoff. It resulted in the deaths of the 260 passengers and crewmembers on board, as well as five more on the ground. " I couldn ' t believe it at first, " recalls Kristel Rodriguez, an LS A sophomore from New York. " This kind of thing isn ' t supposed to happen every other month. " At the time of the crash, nothing was ruled out as the cause. Armed F-1 5 Eagles patrolled the skies over New York immediately after the crash. The reaction of most was a fear that it was connected to the terrorist attacks of Sep- tember 1 1 . After months of careful investigation, however, sabo- tage was ruled out and thefocus shifted onto two rudder compo- nents and the electronic controls of the plane. After the September 1 1 events, it was already estimated that millions of Americans were afraid to fly. The airline industry was forced to lower ticket prices as consumers chose taking buses and trains over flying. The plane crash in Queens made people more jittery. Many students such as Rodriguez became afraid when the time to travel came around. " I felt like my plane could go down just as well, " she said, commenting on her trip home for winter break. This was a fear shared by countless Americans across the country. The Sunday after the crash, friends, family and well-wishers gathered to mourn the loss of the 265 people who had perished. Rockaway residents were hit hard, as they had not completely recovered from losing more than 60 people, many of who were police and firefighters, during the World Trade Center Attack. In the words of President Bush, " The New York people have suf- fered mightily. They suffer again, but there ' s no doubt in my mind that New Yorkers are resilient and strong people and will help their neighbors overcome this recent incident that took place.

The boy ' s uncle stopped the attack and wrestled the shark to shore. Arborgast was rushed to the hospital followed shortly by his arm which was successfully reattached. A few weeks later 36 year-old Krishna Thompson lost his lower leg to a shark bite while swimming in the Bahamas. The summer of shark attacks persisted through Labor Day weekend when a second man was bitten in the Bahamas, this time on his left calf while snorkeling. Meanwhile six people were bitten by sharks off New Smyrna Beach in Volusia County, Florida also on Labor Day weekend. Shark experts said part of the problem was a great deal of bait fishing just off the Ponce de Leon inlet near the New Smyrna Beach. While shark attacks in the area of Ponce de Leon seemed rampantthissummer, the total numberof bites reported for the area was average.

The equally popular and controversial Internet file-sharing ser- vice fell from power as rapidly as it had risen following the bans imposed by a US federal judge. The beginning of the end of Napster was marked by a lawsuit brought against the company by the Recording Industry Association of America, which claimed that Napster had violated copyright laws with itsfree file-sharing service. Napster countered by stating that many artists not only accepted the file-sharing, they encouraged it as a new way to distribute their music. The ruling handed down in the congressional court hearing ordered Napster to " block the free exchange of copyrighted music. " Napster complied with demands and placed filters on its server. Within three months, file-sharing was down by a stagger- ing 90 percent. Blame was placed on the limited selection of files available, so Napster made a desperate move to save its life and inked a deal with online music distributor MusicNet. It then pulled its file sharing off the Internet completely while it at- tempted to transform itself into a subscription-based service with a monthly fee. by Elizabeth Sprang the execution ot a ki er O n a closed-circuit television feed in Oklahoma City, a select audience watched as Timothy McVeigh died in his federal prison inTerre Haute, Indiana.The audience consisted of victims ' family members and survivors of the Oklahoma City bombing, which McVeigh committed in April 1 995. At the time, the bomb- ing, which killed 168 people, was the worst act of domestic terrorism in the history of the United States. Thirty-three-year- old McVeigh declined to make a final statement, but he did submit a handwritten one. In it he quoted part of the poem Invictus with the line: " I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul. " Some heralded the execution as the completion of justice; others characterized it as further violence. Long before the exe- cution date was set, McVeigh admitted he was ready to die. The day of execution had been scheduled for weeks earlier, but was postponed when the FBI turned over new information some four thousand pages of documents to McVeigh ' s defense team. His attorneys requested to delay the execution even fur- ther, but the courts refused and McVeigh chose not to appeal the decision. McVeigh ' s final meal consisted of two pints of mint chocolate chip ice cream; his final night was spent in a small windowless holding cell.

The device was battery-operated and replaced the functions of the human heart completely inside the body. The patient who re- ceived it was fifty-nine year old Robert Tools, a severely ill man plagued with not only heart trouble, but kidney failure and diabetes as well. Tools had tried other therapies to no avail and was too sick to qualify for a human heart transplant. Doctors had given him less than a month to live when he decided to take the risk and undergo the experimental procedure. The implantable heart, made of titanium and plastic, weighed two pounds and was a major advancement from previous artifi- cial heart models. Older devices required wires and tubes to stick out of the patient ' s body, increasing the risk of infection. The implantable heart eliminated this riskand offered the patient the ability to live a relatively normal life. Tools was the first of five patients to receive the heart in the initial round of studies. Doctors were uncertain how long he would live with the heart, but they hoped to expand his life by at least several months. Given how ill he was prior to the surgery, they were amazed at how well he recovered. Over time, he regained enough strength to take numerous trips away from the hospital and also regained some of the body weight he had lost during his illness. Tools died on November 30, of severe abdominal bleeding and multi-organ failure. His death was not related to the heart, but to the other conditions which afflicted him. While his doctors were sad to lose the patient who had become their friend, they chose to address the situation in a positive manner. Tools ' deci- sion to participate in theirexperimental procedure had expanded his life by nearly five full months and given him a place in history as a medical pioneer. by Elizabeth Sprang I .n his presidential campaign, George W.

Simulta- neously, the U.S. plane made a harrowing landing in the South Pacific at a Chinese military base on Hainan Island. The collision happened in international airspace, but the two nations could not agree on who was at fault. Chinese officials blamed the United States for the crash and detained the 24 crew members. The United States blamed a reckless and aggressive Chinese pilot. Tension between the two nations became unbearable when the U.S. insisted that the plane and its crew be returned but China claimed that it could not be returned due to extreme public outrage within the country. Furthermore China remained unsatisfied with the apology is- sued by the United States, claiming that President Bush did not express adequate responsibility for the collision.

Over 80 percent of people raped knew their attackers. The number waseven higher for college campuses, reaching 90 percent. College remained the place where most date rape occurred; some believed it was because of the amount of alcohol consumed on college cam- puses. Studies of date rape showed that 75 percent of the date rapists and 55 percent of the victims had had some alcohol before the rape occurred. Alcohol was not the only factor in rapes, but also such date rape drugs as rohypnol also known as roofies GHB and Special K. These drugs caused victims to pass out, become ex- tremely dazed and suffer amnesia after only 20 to 30 minutes of being given the drug. The drugs could be easily slipped into anyone ' s drink. The University also had allegations of girls being date raped after being drugged. Two girls from the sorority Delta Delta Delta said they were raped after being slipped a drug while at a formal with Beta Theta Pi. Universities continued to educate girls on how to keep themselves from becoming victims of date rape. Suggestions included watching drinks get poured or pouring the drink yourself. Also, never putting a drink down when at a party. The main suggestion remained going to parties in a group and watching out for friends. ISA sophomore Heather Hicks said of the schools attempt to help victims, " There are so many groups on campus which sup- port the [safety] of women, such as SAPAC and Safehouse; how- ever, we all need to promote an end to violence against women. " Date rape continued to be a scary epidemic that plagued many college campuses. The scariest fact remained that most of the rapes were committed by acquaintances of the victim and not strangers. by early mcentee the dri ling debate jnergy solutions for the future were a much-debated topic in Congress throughout the year. A great part of the bitter controversy focused around whether or not to open up the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge for oil drilling. The Bush Admin- istration pushed for an energy plan that would include exploring the refuge for oil, hoping to make an important step towards meeting our long-term energy needs and reducing our depen- dence on foreign sources of energy. However, in the eyes of environmentalists, the Arctic Refuge was one of our nation ' s most precious treasures. Located in northeastern Alaska, its 1 9- million acres were home to an amazing diversity of wildlife, and unparalleled pristine wilderness. Many shared the feeling that opening up the refuge for drilling would not only spoil the untamed wilderness, but also mean ignoring clean, energy- efficient solutions and favor more dirty and dangerous oil, coal, and nuclear production. In August, the House of Representatives approved a broad energy bill that would allow some drilling in the Arctic Refuge. Democrats immediately sought support from moderate Republicans with environmental leanings to vote in favor of an amendment to remove the arctic refuge drilling provision from the energy bill. However, it was defeated by a narrow margin, leaving the refuge in the hands of the Senate. Despite efforts of senate Republicans to demand a vote on a national energy policy to include oil exploration in Alaska, a decisive vote was stalled. The fate of the Arctic continued to be kept in limbo. by han-ching I ' m A night at the bar can have serious con- sequences for students who let their guard down.

While the nation was captivated by McGwire ' s magical pursuit of the single season home run mark in the summer of 1 998, three short years later baseball fans were unsure of how to react to Bond ' s pursuit of 70. When McGwire hit his 62nd home run, he broke a record previously held by Roger Maris that had stood for 37 years. However, since McGwire hit 70 in 1 998, three players have com- bined to hit over 60 home runs six times. Bonds broke one of baseball ' s most cherished records, and he did so in Herculean manner. However, baseball fans failed to embrace Bonds in the same manner that they embraced both McGwire and Sammy Sosa three years earlier. The fans may not have been enthralled with Bonds pursuitformany reasons. He wasconsistently walked throughout the final month of the season, causing the pace of the chase to slow dramatically. He played at night on the West Coast, after most fans had gone to bed. Another reason may have been that he had a bad reputation with the media, or even because he broke the record in a game that eliminated his team from the playoffs.

Producers contributed to the frenzy by generating as much buzz as possible or by staying silent and provoking mys- tery.

Microsoft quickly seized the opportunity to fill the void left by Sega and enter the industry with a console of its own. While the three products were similar, there were enough differences for each to distinguish itself from its competitors. The PlayStation 2 offered the ability to play its predecessor ' s games as well as provided its own impressive list of game titles. With an established fan base and the added bonus of a DVD player built into the console, Sony appeared to be in control of the market, at least for the short term. After conquering the home computer market, Microsoft hoped to have similar success in the video game industry by granting the Xbox the ability to go online. With this feature and a DVD player of its own, Microsoft planned to establish itself as a serious competitor. Nintendo ' s GameCube entered the market with a significantly lower price tag than either of the other consoles and hoped that the company ' s experience and reputation in the industry would win over new members to its already substantial fan base. Entering the holiday season, each company was prepared to fight for a share of the market in the latest battle of video game wars. by elizabeth sprang Retrospect | 143 SPORTS BY ANDREA GOFF ERIC RAJALA We camped out on the Diag with textbooks, Stucchi ' s ice cream, and cell phones when the weather was beautiful; we illuminated the Diag with the light from 1 0,000 candles on the evening of September 1 1 .

Players and coaches had high expectations, but the highest hopes of all belonged to the team ' s superlative fan base, hungry for another national title. Coach Lloyd Carr and offensive coordinator Stan Parrish faced a tough task in rebuilding the Wolverines ' offensive roster seemingly from scratch, as five starters from the previous season joined the NFL. Starting quarterback Drew Henson also left the team early to pursue a professional baseball career with the New York Yankees. In addition to replacing these key contributors, the Wolverines needed to solve the problems of a porous defense from the year before. The task ahead was a formidable one. To the anticipated contentment of the staff and the joy of Michigan fans, the Wolverines burst out of the gates in strong fashion. A comfortable win against Miami of Ohio left quitea positive impression on theaudience, as sophomore quarterback John Navarre stretched the opposing second- ary and senior wide receiver standout Marquis Walker began his season- long bedazzlement of cornerbacks. An integral game against highly- touted Washington followed. Though the game was very much in the hands of the Wolverines, successive fluke plays caused their downfall. A blocked field goal was returned by the Huskies for a touchdown; the blocked field goal was immediately followed by an interception ran back for a score. The Wolverines left viewers in deep suspense with a noble rally attempt, but ultimately fell short, losing to the Pac 1 power, 23-1 8. The loss stung, but it left the team with confidence. Michigan had proved to be a quality adversary, certainly capable of beating a ranked team. Also, Navarre and Walker exploded for a school-record 15 connections, a sign of lofty achievements still to come. Another blowout win over in-state foe Western Michigan recovered some of the Wolverines ' swagger, and they looked forward to Big Ten rival Illinois. Ranked 1 7 in the country at this point, the Wolverines were forced to regard theiropponent cautiously. As well as a ranking of 22, the Fighting Illini still danced devilishly in the minds of all Michigan followers, who remembered the trauma of the Wolverines ' narrow defeat at home two seasons ago. In what appeared to be an epiphany for the offense, Michi- gan established itself as the Big Ten Conference favorite with a sparkling performance.

Even the fans were a bit bewildered; Carr had always been infamous for a historically dull playbook. With an early lead established against them, Illinois could not recover. Michigan flexed its muscles to a 45-20 home victory. The next task ahead was Penn State, a perennial and always dangerous rival in the midst of an uncharacteristically poor season. Though the media dealt Penn State little respect, Carr and the Wolverines knew all too well the dangers of traveling to Happy Valley for a contest against the Nittany Lions. This week, more than any, the defensive unit of the Michigan squad shone the brightest. Denounced at the onset of the campaign, the seasoned unit completely squashed all Penn State efforts at advancement. Linebackers Larry Foote, Eric Brackins, and Victor Hobson led a supercharged stand against the futile running game of the Nittany Lions. With their ground attack stifled, Penn State was consigned to a predictable, ineffective passing plan. When the dust had settled, Michigan had emerged with a stellar 20-0 shutout. Next, the twelfth-ranked Wolverines returned home to defend the Big House against number 17 Purdue. The Boilermakers, another storied rival, dashed some of Michigan ' s aspirations the previous season with a disheartening victory in a quarterback duel. The Wolverines, still very much sore from that memory, sought revenge and earned it. Rebounding from an early 7-0 deficit, Marquis Walker and John Navarre again led the way for Michigan. Walker amounted a remarkable 249 all-purpose yards in the 24-1 win. The Wolverines had crept into the top ten in the polls, and fans began to salivate over an opportunity to again play in the Rose Bowl, the season ' s national championship game. Iowa amassed a commendable effort against the highly-favored Michigan team, but in the end fell just short of an upset. Each side committed three turnovers, helping to keep this a topsy-turvy affair. Michigan earned a touchdown from a blocked punt, and safety Cato June recovered a fumble and returned an interception for 30 yards, setting up Michigan ' s game-winning touchdown pass.The 32-26 victory also included a nationally celebrated scoring catch from Walker. The ridiculous one-handed grab completely redeemed the star receiver from a costly earlier drop and was continuously replayed on sports bulletin highlight reels through the remainder of the year.

Occasionally a strong club, the Spartan team was suffering through a mediocre campaign. Unfortunately for the Wolverines, they were clearly motivated and prepared for this face-off. Michigan squandered chances at sealing a victory and, to the outright agony of Wolverinefans, found itself defending a one score lead with time running out. In a climatic, memorable, and certainly controversial finish, the Spartan offense advanced to the one-yard line with no timeouts and mere seconds remaining. To the heightened dismay of the Michigan faithful, the clock refused to tick, and somehow, the Michigan State offense spiked the ball with one tick left. The final play of regulation was a damning one-yard touch- down pass to Spartan running back T.J. Duckett, who had plagued Michigan ' s otherwise fortified defense earlier on. Soon after, instant replay revealed the startling disservice from the referees, as this infinite final second was actually timed at 2.6 seconds. Without any replay reviews in collegefootball,however,the loss stood. Michigan ' s title hopes were dashed, its record marred, and its pride stung by a school with a single-game season, which finished undefeated. The Wolverines proceeded to squash Minnesota at home, hoping to save someface. A more challenging test developed for thefollow- ing week, as the Michigan maize and blue traveled to Wisconsin for an away game against the other top preseason Big Ten favorite. The team earned a big win in a tight showdown. Finally, the regular season closed against Ohio State. Though countless schools circle Michigan on their calendars and consider themselves ' rivals, ' Ohio State has recently been the single program that earns such consid- eration. On top of ending the regular season and often deciding the Big Ten title, this particular match had always pitted two teams with exceptional talent and winning tradition against each other in the cold of the approaching winter. Though Ohio State suffered early losses, they managed to topple the Wolverines quite compellingly, stifling the lame duck passing attack with four interceptions. Lead- ing 23-0 at the half, the Buckeyes held on for a 26-20 win. Despite a respectable 8-3 regular season record, the Wolverines felt disap- pointed with losses to two nearby opponents. The offense that showed so much potential early on was brought backto earth by the end, and the defense, though nobly standing firm, could not carry the squad all the way. Michigan awaited their bowl invitation with a sense of underachievement. Despite the season-ending loss, absolutely no one was disap- pointed with Michigan ' s Citrus Bowl opponent, the Tennessee Vol- unteers. Ranked eighth in the nation, Tennessee had just missed a shot as Miami ' s Rose Bowl opponent, losing a nailbiter to Louisiana State in the SEC championship game. LSU proceeded into a BCS bowl (against Big Ten winner Illinois), leaving the more highly re- garded Tennessee program as Michigan ' s opponent. Unfortunately for the Wolverines, the Volunteers proved to be too formidable of a foe. Michigan missed a chance to win five straight bowl games with an impotent 45-17 loss. Larry Foote tried to curtail the Volunteers ' speedy attack early on, but quick scores left Michigan with a 17- point deficit and little hope of recovery. Running back B.J. Askew gave a solid performance for Michigan, gaining 71 important yards on the ground. Michigan football suffered its first four-loss season si nee 1996.

The Tennessee Volunteers handed the Maize and Blue its worst post- season loss in a decade. The Volunteers dominated all facets of the game, amassing over 500 yards of offense against the overmatched Wolverine defense, and holding the Wolverines to 343 yards of offense. The Volun- teers held a seventeen-point advantage after two plays in the second quarter; and extended that lead throughout the rest of the game. The Wolverines lost any chance at stealing some momentum, and keeping themselves in the game, when midway through the first quarter the offense fumbled twice - on the same play. Redshirt sophomore quar- terback John Navarre dropped the ball after being sacked by Tennessee defensive tackle at the Michigan 28, but fortunately for the Wolverines, junior running back BJ. Askew was there to scoop up the loose ball. However, Askew fumbled the ball almost immediately after picking it up, and Henderson was there to recover for the Volunteers. After the game, Askew said, " I felt we lost something on that play that we didn ' t get back. That was a big play for Tennessee - one of many. " Askew proved to be one of the few bright spots for the Wolverines. Askew ran for 71 yards on nine carries and added a 14-yard touchdown reception on a screen pass to earn Michigan Offensive MVP. Defensively, senior Larry Foote garnered the Michigan Defensive MVP by leading the Wolverines with nine tackles and two pass breakups. Despite the efforts of both Askew and Foote the Wolverines could not keep up with the power- ful Volunteers. While the Wolverine ' s offense stalled throughout the first half, the defense needed to play flawlessly. The defensive game plan for the Maize and Blue was to focus on stopping Tennessee ' s potent running backTravis Stephens and force their sophomore quarterback Casey Clausen to have a big game. The Wolverines successfully stopped the Volunteer ' s running game, holding Stephens to just 38 yards. However, Clausen completed 26 of 34 passes for 393 yards on the afternoon. Trailing by seventeen points at halftime, a comeback seemed unlikely, but not impossible for the Wolverines. However, the Volunteers denied all possibilities of a comeback by opening the second half with 21 unan- swered points. Head coach Lloyd Carr said " I thought in the second half we ' d have a chance to get back in the game, but we couldn ' t do that because Tennessee was basically too good for us.

However, the Wolverines did not lack in experience under pressure; they returned 1 5 letter-winners, including 1 starters and six seniors, from a squad that finished second in the Big Ten. Despite their experience and depth, the Maize and Blue began the 2001 campaign by stumbling through their first 14 games with a 6-8 record. The season-opening funk sent the Wolverines tumbling through the national rankings and by the midpoint of the season, the team found itself out of the national rankings altogether. By the time the Wolverines began their Big Ten Conference schedule they were hitting just .264 as a team and averaging just over three runs a game. However, the Wolverine bats came alive and the pitchers became even more dominant once Big Ten play began. The Maize and Blue tore through the Big Ten, finishing with a 1 7-3 mark and their seventh Big Ten Conference regular-season champi- onship since 1992. The red-hot Wolverines entered the 48-team NCAA tournament field for the seventh consecutive season, but found themselves in the unusual position of having to travel to a Regional Champion- ships. For the first time since 1992, the program ' s first trip to the tournament, the Wolverines did not host one of the eight six-team regionals. Instead, the Wolverines were forced to travel to the Region 4 Championship hosted by Alabama. Despite the unfamiliar setting, the Wolverines dominated the Regional Championship, outscoring their opponents 22-9. Four Wolverines earned a spot on the All-Tournament team led by MVP Melissa Taylor. Kelsey Kollen, Marie Barda, and StefanieVolpejoinedTaylor on theall-tournament team. After claiming the program ' s fifth Regional Championship in seven years, the team traveled to Oklahoma City to participate in the eight-team Women ' s College World Series. The Wolverines entered the World Series as the fourth seed, and in their first game they faced the fifth seeded Oklahoma Sooners. The Sooners ' pitching proved to be too tough forthe Wolverine bats as the Maize and Blue managed only three hits and no runs.The next day the Wolverines needed to defeat California to stay alive in the series; however, the team played sloppy defense and allowed three unearned runs, falling to the Golden Bears by a score of 5-2. by Jon Hommer Gunning it home, junior Stephanie Volpe forces a play at the plate.

The limited experience of the everyday players led to a lack of offensive production over the first half of the season. After 22 games, the Wolverines were hitting a meager .261 as a team. This dearth of offensive production caused the Maize and Blue to rely more heavily on a pitching staff that had experience, but only three seniors. While the Wolverine pitchers maintained a team ERA of under 4.25 over the first half of the season, the team still dropped 12 of its first 22 games, due in large part to the Wolverine ' s quiet bats. After a disappointing first half, the Maize and Blue rebounded to finish the season in sixth place in the Big Ten. While the offense was stagnant for much of the first half of the season, eventually the Wolverine bats caught fire, and the Maize and Blue ended up hitting just under .300 collectively. Just as the Wolverine ' s hitting was improving, the pitching began to deteriorate. The team ' s ERA rose from 4.22 after 22 games to 4.88 by the end of the season. Despite a 1 0-1 4 Big Ten Conference record, the Wolver- ines managed to sneak into the six-team double elimination Big Ten tournament as the sixth seed. While the program had won the conference tournament six times since its inception in 1 981 , this was the program ' sfirst appearance in a six- team league championship tournament. After a mediocre regular season, the Wolverines played their best baseball during the conference tourna- ment. After dropping thefirst game to top-seeded Ohio State, the Wolver- ines fended off elimination by dominating Purdue and Penn State in consecutive games. While the Wolverines made it to the championship game, the tournament had taken its toll on the pitching staff. In the championship game against third-seeded Minnesota, the Wolverines were forced to start true freshman Jim Bauer. Despite his lack of experi- ence, Bauer pitched admirably; allowing just one earned run in six and two-thirds innings of work. Minnesota scored two runs on a throwing error, the Wolverines 1 05th of the season, and won the game by a score of 3-2. Three Wolverines were named to the all-tournament team, includ- ing senior Scott Tousa, freshman Jake Fox and junior Bobby Wood. by Jon Hommer 4WestemMichigan1 1|| 9 Western Michigan6||| 2 Western Michigan4 1|| 1 Stetson 4 1|| 10SouthFlonda4|||8Scuth Florida 13 |||2Stetson 9 1|| 2 Boston Colleges ||| 1 McNeeseState7|||3McNeeseState1 1||6 McNeese4 1|| 2 IllinoisChicago 8 1|| 8 KansasS ||| BKansasB ||| 11 Saint Joseph ' s 1 1|| 4 Iowa3 1|| 7 Bowling Green4 1|| 2 Oakland 3 1|| 30aklandO|||1 Penn State 2 1|| 1 Penn State4 |||3PennState9|||16BowlingGreen4|||4 Eastern MichiganO||| 6 Indiana 2 1| 11 Indiana 7 || Blndiana3 1|| 3 Indiana2 1|| 5 Eastern Michigan 3 1|| 9 Western Michigan 12 1|| 5 Minnesota 3 || BMinnesota 7 1|| 3 Minnesota4||| 8 Minnesota 26 |||12SienaHeights2||| 13 Siena Heights 1 1|| 1 1 1llinois 1 1|| 7 Illinois 5 1|| 2 Illinois 3 1|| 1 1llinois 5 1|| 1 Notre Dame 9 1|| 1 0Detroit 7 1|| 7 Michigan State9|||2Michigan State 10|||21 Michigan State2|||5MichiganState8|||3Central Michigan 15||| 10 Central Michigan 7 ]| 7 Ohio State 5 |||00hio State 2 1|| 7 Ohio State 10||| 2 Ohio State 9 |||40hio StateS ||| 10Purdue2 1|| 10Penn State 2 1|| 2 MinnesotaS Sports | 159 A triumphant field hockey team jogs to shake hands with their fans after dramatically defeat- ing Michigan State 2-1 in the National Quarter Finals.

The Wolverines capped an improbable title run by triumphing over the top-ranked University of Maryland Terrapins 2-0 in the title game. Each victory in the NCAA tournament came against a team ranked at least as high as the Maize and Blue; and the Wolverines defeated North Carolina, Princeton, and Maryland, all for the first time ever during its championship run. After a disappointing 3-0 loss to Ohio State in the semifinals of the Big Ten Championship, the Wolverines entered the NCAA tournament without momentum, and with the daunting task effacing the fourth-ranked North Carolina Tar Heels. However, the Wolverines torched the Tar Heels for five second half goals en route to a 5-2 victory. After the victory, sophomore forward April Fronzoni spoke confidently, " We all just came out in the second half and were on fire. We had a lot of fun and we want to carry it through until the end of the season. " Fronzoni ' s words proved prophetic, as the Wolverines tore through their next two tournament games before meeting Maryland in a rematch of the 1999 championship game. In the two previous meetings with the Terrapins, the Wolverines had lost in close, hard-fought games. However, the Wolverines, led by senior goalkeeper Maureen Tasch, would not be denied this time. The Terrapins unloaded twenty shots on Tasch, none of which found the back of the net. The shutout was Tasch, ' s school record, eighth of the season. Tasch commented on her shutout, " At his level, so late in the season, I thought it wasn ' t going to happen anymore and I was done with those. They put an awful lot of pressure on and were very skilled. " With Tasch ' s stellar goaltending, and goals by freshman Adrienne Hortillosa and sophomore Kristi Gannon, the Wolverines held on for a 2-0 victory.

They came in this year with strong leadership from head coach Joe McFarland, who has held this position forthree seasons and assistant coach Kirk Trost, who has been with the wrestling team for 16 seasons. Al- though there was firm leadership, the team was unconventionally young with onlyfiveseniorsout of thirty-two wrestlers ' Ourstrength comes from the youth in our team because it is these boys who are the most willing to put it out there and be aggressive. They make the matches fun to watch, " said Kirk Trost. Adding to the youth of the team, McFarland signed four red-shirt freshman athletes; Nick Roy, Chase Verdoorn, Mark Moos and Chase Metcalf during the National Letter of Intent early signing period. " We are very excited about these kids. I think that each of their styles fit into our program well. They are tough wrestlers with experience at the national level. I consider them to be the top recruiting classfor the 2002-03 season, " said Joe McFarland. At the last pre-season meet of the 2001 -02 campaign, the team captured half of the 1 individual titles at the Michigan State Open. " This was a great way to get prepared for the upcoming 2002-03 season and with such a strong showing I know that the team is going into the season with high hopes, " said McFarland. The wrestling team started out strong for the 2002-03 year. The team competed unattached and dominated the Eastern Michigan Open by taking 7 of the 10 individual weight class championships. Seniors Otto Olson and Andy Hrovat stood out by wining their weight class championships undefeated. Olson was selected as the University ' s Most Outstanding Player. In addition, Hrovat took a silver at the Pan American Championship, which is a competition in preparation for the Pan American games. Since the Pan American games are played every four years the Pan American Championship features the best wrestlers in North, Central and South America during the three year interum. " The Eastern Michigan Open was a great start for the season. The team came out strong and we had outstanding performances from both the seniors and freshman, " said McFarland. In Las Vegas, Nevada Olson and Hrovat won their individual weight classes on December 1 , which led their team to its first Cliff Keen Invitational Team Championships. The team finished the two- day competition with 163 points, with runner-up West Virginia taking only 1 27 points. Next, the maize and blue opened up its dual meet season in strong fashion by beating 20th ranked Michigan State in a non-conference meet. Throughout the season the wrestling team dominated most of the matches. " Our goal this year is to go back to the NCAA champi- onships and capture the first place victory that we deserve, " said Hrovat. With the teams record and dedication to the sport that goal should not be far off. Sfory by Jennifer Lee En route to a major deci- sion victory, Kyle Smith tosses an op- p o n e n t .

Despite the loss, five Wolverines individually won their events Carlberg; Johnson as well as fellow sophomores Kelli Stein and Tealin Kelemen; and junior Laura Kaznecki. The Maize and Blue got back on track, however, with a second-place finish at the Florida Relays. The tournament, hosted by Florida, was a competition of eight different relay races. The promising perfomance at Florida, however, was not enough to continue a victorious streak: the Wolverines fell to both North Carolina and Minnesota at the Minnesota Invitational in early November. After participating in several other fall invitationals, the team headed off to Hawaii for their annual training trip over winter break. Toward the end of February, the team hosted the Big Ten Championship at Canham Natatorium, hoping that its home pool wouldgive them an edge. They also hosted the Last Chance Invitational in the first week of March. Soon after, the diving team headed to Indiana to compete in the NCAA Diving Zones. At the end of March, the team was off to Austin, Texas for the NCAA Championships, with the intent of leaving others in its wake.

In their first meet, leading Florida by only two points, freshman Zayd Ma, in a personal best time, and senior Eric Wilson finished second and third, respectively, in the 200-meter butterfly to clinch the victory for the Maize and Blue. In competition against Eastern Michigan, the Wolverine swimmers took first in every single event and captured the top three spots in the 50, 200 and 1,000-yard freestyles. The win against Indiana was indicative of the team ' s strength, as Indiana had routinely challenged the Maize and Blue in the history of the sport ' s Big Ten competition. Sweeping the 1 ,650-yard freestyle, freshmen Brendan Neligan, Andrew Hurd, and Ma went 1-2-3 to set an early precedent in the meet against the Hoosiers. Other first-place finishes were seen from freshman Chuck Sayao, sophomore Dan Ketchum, and juniors Garrett Mangieri, Jeff Hopwood, and Tony Kurth. Sophomore diver Jason Coben achieved NCAA zone qualifiers in his first-place performances on the one- and three-meter boards. Exemplifying the necessity of teamwork, the Wolverines pooled together to compete in relay races, which awarded heavy points. The fall schedule also included invitationals hosted by Michigan State and Texas. At the end of the season, the team headed off to the Big Ten Championship in Bloomfield, Indiana. The NCAA Diving Zones were also held in Indiana in the middle of March and the NCAA Championships were held in Athens, Georgia at the end of March.

Of the 16 women on the volleyball team 12 of them held sophomore or freshman status and seven members of the squad had never participated in a NCAA volleyball match when the season began. Together the team faced a challenging new season and high hopes of receiving a third consecutive bid to the NCAA Championship Tourna- ment. The opening matches frustrated the young team as the women came together for the first time. At the start of the Big Ten Season, with an unfortunate three loses already on the record, the Maize and Bluefell first to Northwestern and then to No. 9 Wisconsin. Head Coach Mark Rosen, admitted that the young team struggled with their intense travel sched- ule. " We play back-to-back nights on Fridays and Saturdays, and ourtravel partners are very spread out. We go from Penn State to Ohio State or Northwestern to Wisconsin or Minnesota to Iowa; we have to make some pretty significant trips with a one-day turn around. After playing on Friday night, somehow you have to get to your next opponent and play on Saturday night. It ' s a huge disadvantage when the otherteam is sitting at home. " Rosen continued optimistically when he said, " I love playing at Cliff Keen. The crowd is rowdy; it ' s fun and entertaining. All teams are the same at their home venues. It makes the players feel more comfortable if they ' ve got a crowd cheering for them. " And his confidence in the team proved to be justified the following week. Cliff Keen roared in celebration when the team returned home, regrouped and earned five straight wins. The Maize and Blue held a solid 8-6 season record and a 4-3 Big Ten Record. Perhaps the most impressive achievement this season was when the Wolverines stepped up to No. 1 1 Penn State. They took the Nittany Lions in a three-game sweep, which marked the high point of the women ' s season, since it was the first time they had beaten Penn State since 1 995 and just the second time ever. It was their biggest win yet, and one that made a difference, earning the team a third consecutive bid from the NCAA Championships with a 6-4 record. They were tied for a 4th-place ranking in the conference and the season ' s goal of a championship tournament bid was within reach. Strong leadership from Coach Rosen, and Associate Head Coach Leisa Rosen was recognized by the conference when they were inducted into the Ohio State ' s Hall of Fame. It was this leadership that brought the fresh faces of the team into the championship tournament. With growing precision, teamwork and dedication to the sport the Maize and Blue pushed to the end of the season.

Tommy Amaker began his first season at the reins of the varsity squad, succeeding Brian Ellerbe. Amaker was the end result of an extensive search, eventually being pulled away from his talented Seton Hall program. A young coach at age 36, Amaker already had four years of executive experience under his belt, as well as nine seasons as an assistant coach at Duke University under legendary coach Mike Krzyzewski, for whom he also played. Amaker ' s four seasons all concluded with postseason appearances, which had been an elusive place of late for the Wolverines. The University definitely anticipated benefits from Amaker ' s lively, tough coaching style and superlative recruiting abilities. His appearance revitalized student support at home court Crisler Arena, as the Maize Rage teemed out of the student section with electric enthusiasm. Michigan fans were hungry for the success not seen since the Fab Five era of 1 992, and the coaching change renewed promise of a competitive, respectable performance. The Wolverines returned a healthy mix of experience and youth. The team was led by returning stars LaVell Blanchard and Bernard Robinson, Jr. The pair enjoyed a series of preseason awards: Blanchard was elected to the Playboy All-America team T and Robinson was voted the Big Ten Conference ' s best dunker by the Sporting News, who also voted Blanchard the conference ' s best NBA prospect. Blanchard, in his third season, consistently led the Wolverines in scoring and rebounding. Robinson had approached matching numbers as a sophomore and began to mirror Blanchard ' s reliability for big numbers. Both played a similar, versatile small forward position. Chris Young, a powerful 6 foot 9 inch center, provided Michigan ' s clearly most threatening post threat. A four- year letterman, Young also spearheaded the team ' s motivation with noble clubhouse leadership and tougher-than-leather work ethic in practice. Young reaped obvious benefits from the Big Man ' s Camp in Hawaii, attended in the summer off-season. He continuously bested his career highs for points and rebounds in his final season, and during periods of poor team shooting, he appeared the team ' s lone bright spot, cleaning up on the boards and playing virtually turnover-free ball. Young ' s efforts led to more open shots for Michigan ' s perimeter shooters, as his presence often necessitated double-team attention. story continued on page 1 75 HI 83 Duke 104 ||| SB Eastern Michigan 58 ||| 47 San Francisco 55 ||| 67 Penn State 63 ||| 79 Purdue 75 || 82 Minnesota 90 Sports | 173 After being fouled as he drove to the basket, sophomore Bernard Robinson Jr. attempts a free throw.

Ingerson was the Wol- verines ' leading freshman contributor, often catalyzing runs with his pinpoint three-point shooting. Groninger enjoyed his most outstanding of three varsity seasons, earning regular playing time as a feared sharpshooter. Chuck Bailey, a freshman forward, also emerged as a valuable inside player during the campaign. Two more invaluable team leaders were Mike Gotfredson and Rotolu Adebiyi, who received scholar- shipsfortheirfinal season of eligibility with the Wolver- ines. After contributing to the team ' s practice squad, the two culminated their careers as captains, display- ing great heart at all times. Gotfredson even cracked the starting lineup, offering his experience and deter- mination to the floor effort. Herb Gibson, a four-letter forward, also lent considerable experience and guid- ance to the team ' s younger players during his final year. Along with Gotfredson, the backcourt was manned by Avery Queen, a feisty sophomore point guard. At only 5 foot 7 inches, Queen utilized blazing speed to penetrate zone defenses and markedly improved his assist-to-turnover ratio in his sophomore season. Leon Jones, a senior guard, played confidently in relief and contributed integral assists and shooting to the of- fense. Rounding out the roster were forwards Ron Garber, a senior, and Colin Dill, a sophomore. Center Josh Moore, determined academically ineligible mid- way through the season; he continued to practice with the team and hoped to resume playing in thefollowing season. Joining Amaker on the bench were three new assis- tant coaches. Charles Ramsey joined the Michigan squad following five seasons as an assistant at the University of California. His most reputable strength was his persuasive recruiting, and he hoped to aid Amaker in a long term endeavor to attract even more young talent to the Michigan program. In the 80 ' s, Ramsey coached high school basketball in neighbor- ing Ypsilanti. Billy Schmidt followed Amaker from Seton Hall, where he had been an assistant for one season. Before this, Schmidt derived experience at Northwestern Uni- versity and the University of Tennessee. A Wake Forest graduate with honors in 1992, Schmidt also served as student manager and coaches ' aide for his four-year tenure. Chuck Swenson lent his recruiting abilities and extensive collegiate experience to the Wolverines. He had served in a variety of basketball positions for 26 years at several prestigious programs before joining Amaker at Michigan.

But the band started out its 2001-02 season on a particularly high note with the selection of Karen England as drum major. England, a senior astronomy and astrophysics major, was the band ' s 43rd drum major the first woman to hold that position in the band ' s 105-year history. " When I ' m doing stuff out there, it ' s really not about being the first female, it ' s about being the drum major, " England explained. " It ' s really cool to be the first female...but I really didn ' t focus on that while I was trying out. " She emerged victorious from a lengthy drum ma- jor audition held the day before final exams in April 2001. During the audition, each of the four candi- dates was required to complete a series of trials in front of all the marching band members, including answering questions, demonstrating whistle and vo- cal commands, performing stadium entrance rituals and marching " The Michigan drum major really is three differ- ent styles. Ulti- a symbol oj excellence. The one ma teiy, the thing I ' ve learned is you really have march ' ng band members se- tO do it by being yOUrSelf. ' lected the win- ner. " In my mind, everything I did had to be better than everyone else, just so people didn ' t have the chance to second guess me, " said England. As the band ' s drum major, England served as the band ' s student leader and as the liaison between members and staff. She also acted as a symbol for the band as a whole. ' The Michigan drum major really is a symbol of excellence, " she said. ' The one thing I ' ve learned is you really have to do it by being yourself. Getting a position likethisthat ' ssoprestigiousand hassomuch history about it, everyone wants to tell you how to do it. You really can ' t please everybody. I ' ve been the most successful when I go out there and do it my way. " " I feel honored to be able to say that I was in the band when we had our first female drum major, " said Nick Bloom, a senioraerospace engineering major who played alto saxophone. " It ' s hard to believe that women have only been allowed in the band for about 30 years, but here it is 2001 , and we have a woman leading us. It ' s truly a historic event, one that I think many people might not understand the significance of. " Sophomore Eric Banks, a tuba performance major, agreed. " Karen is doing a wonderful job showing that females are totally capable of this position, and I ' m glad to have her as our drum major, " he said. But England wanted the University community to know that the most important part of her role was the band itself. " I want people to know that this is a position that can ' t be done without the support of the people, " she explained. " I ' m only the drum major because of the band that voted for me, and the band that supports me. They ' re a wonderful group of people, and they ' re my friends; they ' re just like me. " The band, over 300 members strong, represented the Wolverines at every home football game and sev- eral away games, bringing the crowd to its feet and summoning Wolverine pride with every note. For sophomore computer science major Matthew McKee, a tuba player, the best part of band was " by far, coming out of the tunnel to see over 1 10,000 people in the stands watching, " he said, a sentiment shared by En- gland. England ' s role was something she had dreamed about since she was drum major of her high school band, and a milestone she hoped would positively affect the band in the future. " I really think it ' s just going to smooth things over; when women try out, it ' ll be a lot more accepted, " she said. " I hope that I do a good enough job this year ... that it makes the transi- tion easier for whoever comes after me. " According to England, the University was the last school in the Big 10 to have a female drum major not necessarily because of sexism, but simply because the candidates were generally male. The election of En- gland as drum major was clearly a case of better late than never and one that would open doors for female band members for years to come. by Cortney Dueweke or, " said ijoiwtio igusJt ' s people :e major, ling that il ' mglad wnityto jwasthe ipositioo i people, " useofthe supports id they ' re msented andsev- i feet and note.

Members of club teams were often just as dedicated to their sport and committed to excellence as any varsity team member at the University. Captain of the rugby team and senior English major Mike Livanos said, " Being a club sport allows us to expect a high level of commitment, more so than an intramural team, but we do not take all of the fun out of the sport like some varsity teams do. " He added, " People come out for rugby because they have an interest in continuing on as an athlete in college or just to try out something new. People stay with the rugby club because of the camaraderie and long-standing traditions the sport has to offer. If our team was varsity, we may not be able to maintain the atmosphere that is most conducive to the tradi- tions of rugby. " Similarly, sophomore ISA student Jane Friend, president of the women ' s lacrosse team, recognized the uniqueness of club sports. ' The reason I keep referring to the lacrosse team as a ' club ' is because of the additional weight that word carries it means more than being on a team does, " said Friend. " A team shows up and plays a sport but a club runs the entire organiza- tion from the ground up. It is amazing how much more pride people take in a club in which they not only play the sport, but set up matches, do all the organization, help coach and select players. " Another version of club sports was the slightly elevated varsity-club status granted to the men ' s lacrosse and rowing teams last year. The rowing team had competed against varsity and club teams nationwide for nearly 20 years. In the past two years men ' s rowing had ranked among the top 20 rowing programs in the nation. Similarly, men ' s lacrosse had ranked well in their national league. Men ' s lacrosse Coach John Paul said, " With the varsity club status, we receiveall benefits that the varsity athletes do round tables, athletic training, publicity from media relations but we don ' t receive any financial support. Our players perform like varsity athletes. I mean we cut nearly 50 guys a season, the ones that make it know what is expected of them and they pay dues to be on the team. This varsity-club status has really given the team a boost in morale, but it hasn ' t changed our dedication. " Club teams were not fueled by players who came in on a big scholarship or who looked for a future career in sports. These teams were about the spirit of the game and the heart of the players who came out to play. Livanos said it best when he said, " I think club sports are the best type of athletic programs in which to be involved. Everyone who shows up and is committed to the team is guaranteed playing time. " While running a club, students not only learned to compete but also learned many of the same skills involved in running a small business. At the same time, a club sports member was not required to dedicate his or her whole life to a sport as in some varsity programs. Club sports allowed students to keep up with their studies, while also func- tioning as a worldwide fraternal organization that could help members succeed in life after college. by Sarah Johnson 180 | Club Sports sport, but and select i elevated id rowing nit varsity e past two ad ranked tethatthe I, publicity y financial earwecut iHhatis team.

The program offered a calendar packed with one-day adventures and weekend trips such as rock-climbing, backpacking, canoeing and hik- ing. Some took place in Michigan, while others involved travel to places as far away as Ontario. " It ' s such a great way to get outside and meet all sorts of cool people, " said Lindsay Struve, the assistant director of the program. Open to all students, fac- ulty, staff and the public, there were definitely opportunities to meet people of all ages, back- grounds and interests. The Outdoor Adventures Program provided chances to participate in trips that were safe and of high quality while also being affordable, fun and educational. Skills that could be learned included bike repair, backpacking, map " Everyone should give it a try, because there ' s nothing to lose and everything to gain. ' ' ' reading, compass navigation, sailing, rock-climb- ing and wilderness medicine. " The people that par- ticipated in our programs not only gained new skills, but also learned to work as a team. " One or more experienced staff led each trip, with each staff member committed to offering ex- periences that taught personal growth in a group setting. Kate Kullgren, an under- graduate kinesiology student and a trip manager in the program, described one of the fun backpacking trips that she had been on. " Over one weekend, I had such an amazing time hiking miles upon miles, at times guided by the moonlight. I loved spending time cooking, playing team-build- ing games and learning valuable skills, all with really cool people and wonderful weather! " Com- menting on the kind of person she would recom- mend to try these programs, Assistant Director Struve said, " The Outdoor Adventures Program is designed for everyone to enjoy.

A new coach took over the struggling basketball program. The savior was Tommy Amaker, who signed a five-year contract with the University and replaced Brian Ellerbee, who was fired after posting a 62-60 record in four seasons. " We ' re going to talk about being pas- sionate in our program and we are always going to be prepared. In everything we do, we ' re go- ing to be honest with one another; we are going to be Michigan, " said Amaker at an ESPN press conference. Mixed views came from basketball fans about the University ' s new coach. " The interesting thing is that Amaker did not even have that great of record in the past compared to Ellerbee, so what makes the University think that he will be any better? But, I think that any new coach will bring a new perspective and challenge to the team, which is what they need right now, " said junior industrial engineering major Doug Constatine. An additional problem with basketball was low ticket sales. " I did not even think about buying basketball tickets this year. I thought that it would be a waste of money since we are not that good anyway. I really wanted to spend my money on football and hockey tickets, " said sophomore business majorTom Feldcamp. The problem of low ticket sales came from the fact thatthe Wolverine basketball team had not been successful in recent years, but it also had to do with the marketing of basketball games. " Not once did I hear about basketball games in a promotion or get an e-mail about buying tickets for the games, like I did with hockey and foot- ball, " said junior statistics major Stephanie Davis. Yet, the catch-22 about this situation was that in order for a sport to be marketable, the team had to do well. The University ' s hope was to have Amaker bring in victories and rising ticket sales. On November 12, the future of the University ' s men ' s basketball team was ensured, when Amaker signed his 5-year contract exten- sion. " Whether I lead the team to more victories or more losses, I plan to change the structure of the team. We will be more confident and more prepared, " said Amaker. x by Jennifer Lee . 184 | Tommy Amaker Stretching his arms out to defend the low post, senior center Chris Young shows his confidence in the game against lUPU-Fort Way neon December 4.

Rigorous practices were the daily committment of atheletes, each training with ideas of future victo- ries. As teams trained toward victory, however, charity became a greater goal team members rallied around. Hockey team members did their share as they worked with Habitat for Hu- manity to build a houseon Bens Street. A charitable victory for the Wolverines came in November when, for the first time in years, the University won the football-themed annual Blood Battle against rival Ohio State University. A total of 1,679 pints of blood were raised. The Blood Battle was especially significant this year, as it was in many ways a tribute to New YorkCity. According to Blood Battle Co-Chair Sean Meyers, the event had special meaning because " we needed to ensure that there was an ample blood supply in the event of another national emergency. " The September 1 1 tragedy also inspired a major event sponsored by the water polo tea and the women ' s and men ' s swim teams.

The event, brought to the University by Olympic swimmer and alumni Tom Dolan, was originated byCarlsburg Swim Clubin Virginia. Cluband Univer- sity swim teams across the nation collected donations and united in a swimming show of support. Each member of the women ' s swim team swam 7000 yards straight. " It was the longest consecutive swim I have ever done in my life, but it was for a great cause and I felt honored to be able to be a part of it, " said women ' s swim team member Katie Peterson. The ath- letic prowess of the swim team shined through as swimmers raced to sup- port all affected by the tragedy. According to Emily Fenn, a swimmer and a sophomore in Kinesiology, " although a 7,000 straight was not something that I enjoyed doing, the cause of the swim was something much too great to pass up. I felt this was the best way to help out the people who suffered the loss of family and friends.

Two of the freshman, Mie Burlin and Sierra Hauser-Price started games as guards. " Burlin is a smart, tough ballplayer, who is a very good defender for a young player and knows how to play the game. Hauser-Price is a very quick and definitely going to raise our level of athleticism on the perimeter, " said Guevara. The women ' s basketball team came off one of the most successful seasons in school history last year by advancing to the second round of NCAA championships and having a stellar record of 19-12. Because of the team ' s success, their 2001-02 schedule included games against the 2001 NCAA champion and national runner-up. " It is very good that we are being challenged with our schedule this season. When the girls have a chance to play the best, they can become the best, " said Associate Head Coach Angela Jackson. The Wolverines entered the season being named one of the top ten teams in many pre-season publications, such as Women ' s Basketball Journal. The team returned eight of their top nine players, including four Big Ten honorable mention performers LeeAnn Bies, Alayne Ingram, Raina Goodlow and Stephanie Gandy. In addition, the team was selected as the preseason co-favorite in the Big Ten conference by the conference coaches at the Big Ten Basketball Media Day. Bies, who plays centerforthe team, received the honor of being on the coaches six-member preseason All-League Squad and named Big Ten Conference player of the week. " It was honor to receive all of the recognition in the preseason. These types of honors only spark my desire to keep playing my best, " said junior Bies. The Maize and Blue started off the season ranked 17th in the nation. They dunked RTU Klondaika with an 89-75 exhibition victory at Crisler Arena. Standing out in the game was red-shirt freshmanTabitha Pool who came off the bench to nail a three-pointer which gave Michigan their biggest lead in the game. Even though the team won, Guevara knew that they could do better. " We played about a C+ or B- game, but we are going to have to pick it up and play in the A range in our future matches, " said Guevara. The team came out with a very strong season against many challenging opponents. Their biggest challenge was to make it even farther in the NCAA championships. With such individual talent and strong leadership, they did not think that would be an unattainable goal.

With the departure of veterans Jeff Jillson and Andy Hilbert, the varsity team lost two key players and gained 1 incoming freshmen, the largest number of freshmen players since the 1997-1998 season. The youth of the team, however, ultimately seemed to be more of a benefit than a liability. After two exhibition games -the traditional Blue White game and a match-up against Queens -the team launched into its regular season play on with the record-breaking Oct. 6 Cold War game against Michigan State. Played on an ice rink set up in the center of Spartan Stadium in East Lansing, the historic event summoned a crowd of 74,554 spectators, shattering the world record for attendance at a hockey game. The Wolverines held the lead until the game ' s last minutes, when Michigan State tied the score at 3-3. The Cold War ultimately went into overtime and finished in a tie. Following another exhibition game, the Maize and Blue tallied a win against Providence and a loss against Minnesota-Duluth during the Nebraska Omaha Maverick Stampede Oct. 12-13, claiming second place overall in the event overall. The team followed up with a similar performance the next weekend, with both a 5-3 win and a 1 -3 loss against Western Michigan. The win marked Red Berenson ' s 450th as the team ' s head coach. The Wolverines lost a pair of games Oct. 26-27 to Northern Michigan Oct. 26-27, but regained their momentum to overcome Alaska Fairbanks in two away games thefollowing weekend. A pair of overtime away games against Nebraska-Omaha followed;one resulted in a 4-4 overtime tie, while the other ended in a 3-2 Wolverine win. As in the Maverick Stampede, the icers claimed both a win and a loss in the Nov. 23-24 College Hockey Showcase, falling to first- ranked Minnesota 2-5 but triumphing over Wisconsin 5-3. That mixed performance was followed by an impressive four-game winning streak as the Wolverines beat Ferris State 5-4 and 6-1 , then Miami (Ohio) 3-2 and 5-2. After a 3-3 overtime tie with Harvard at home on Dec. 1 5, the team had nearly two weeks off before the 37th Annual Great Lakes Invitational at Joe Louis Arena.

Despite the inexperience of a large fraction of the 200 1 -2002 team, the freshmen proved their worth and the remaining veteran icers shined in their positions. Several Maize and Blue players garnered individual awards for their efforts.

Coach Mike McGuire who coached the cross country team for 1 years and won numerous titles, such as three consecutive Big Ten Conferences and NCAA District IV championships headed up the women ' s team with very high hopes. He wanted them to go all of the way: to capture a top five position at the NCAA champion- ships. The team dominated itsfirst meet of the season. Two of the team ' s half- milers earned rankings. Senior Ursula Taylor took the top Wolverine spot by taking 37th place with a time of 21 :09 minutes, while sophomore Erika Flannery posted a time of 22:55, claiming the 50th spot.The women ' s next stop was the Miami Invitational, where the team captured third place but showed some strong strides. Sophomore Lindsay Gallo earned the top team time by placing 7th overall with a time of 18:43. Of the eleven runners the team sent to compete at the Miami Invitational, six were running in their first scored meet at the collegiate level. All six finished in the top 50, including redshirt freshman Andrea Parker, who had the best showing of the group. Parker finished in 8th place with a time of 1 8:48. The last race before the Big Ten Conference was a disappointment to Coach McGuire. The team took fourth place at the Wolverine Interre- gional, a race that they placed second at for the past five years. Yet again Gallo turned in the fastest time with a 10th place finish as she covered 5,000 meters in 1 9:05. Junior Jeanne Spink and sophomore Rachel Sturtz ran their way to top 20 finishes, contributing to the team ' s fourth-place finish. " It didn ' t help that we held out Andrea Parker for the race, but we had a fairly good race. It wasn ' t great though, " said Coach McGuire. Although the season proved to be a little disappointing for the Maize and Blue, it was still a learning process.

" I think there ' s four or five teams that can be there and we should be one of them. Our goal is to be a top-three team, I know we have what it takes to be a top three team, " said Head Coach James Henry. Michigan opened its 2001 indoor track season with the Jack Harvey Invitational at the University Track Building and dominated eight of the events. The sea- son tied Indiana University the following week. At the NCAA IndoorChampionships the Wolverines setthem- selves up for a beautiful outdoor season. Leading the team was senior Katie Jazwinski, the only Wolverine to hold perfect in an event during the indoor season. Jazminski won the mile twice (Feb. 3 and Feb. 1 7) in her only two appearances. The team opened their outdoor season in Florida, at the Florida State Relays where they took three victo- ries and two runner-up finishes. A month later the team dominated its first outdoor home meet against Central Michigan and Michigan State. As the Maize and Blue faced the Big Ten conference meet, Coach Henry put particular emphasis on the athletes ' mental preparation. " We ' ve been toning down the physical preparation, " Henry said, adding, " this week we ' re mak- ing sure that we ' re giving them as much mental prepa- ration as possible. We ' re getting them to focus on the their confidence (for the Big Ten Championships). " Senior Lisa Ouellet, the Big Ten indoor 800-meter champion in 2000, also recognized the importance of the conference meet: " It ' s Big Tens, you ' ve got to be ready mentally, physically and it ' s basicallyabout who has the biggest heart, who wants to win the meet on that day. " Although the team was healthy and men- tally geared up for the races, they were squeezed out of the top three spots. Michigan finished fourth with 99.25 points atthe Big Ten Conference Outdoor Cham- pionships on May 18-20 in Bloomington, Indiana.

The events ranged from distance running, sprints and hurdles to pole vaults, javelin, high jump and triple jump. Team unity became more prominent as theteam spent moreand more time together. ISA senior Derek Applewhite said, " Road trips build the most unity, spending so much time traveling together away from cam- pus. " The training paid off as the team took part in the Big Ten Outdoor Championship. Some of the team members had breathtaking perfor- mances in the meet. Kinesiology junior Ike Okenwa came in fourth in the 100-meter dash and fifth in the 200-meter dash. Kinesiology freshman Brian Turner finished fourth in the 1500-meter dash. Derr finished fifth in the javelin and ISA senior Oded Padan ended up third in the triple jump. ISA senior Mike Wisniewski won the 10,000-meter run title on thefirst day of the Big Ten Outdoor Championships for the second year in a row. Stevenson said of the meet, " I think that the most important meet is always Big Tens. It is the culmination of the team effort. " Other good efforts occurred in the Paddock Invitational on May 1 2. Okenwa (1 00 and 200 meters), Padan (triple jump) and kinesiology senior Charles DeWildt (pole vault) all won their events on the final day of the meet. Derr also won his event, the javelin, while Sellers won the 400-meter hurdles on the first day of the invitational. Applewhite said of the team ' s performace at meets, " The Duke Invitational is always a good meet and Michigan always performs well there. Mount Sac was also a good outing and Michigan managed to put together a few good relays. " At theToledo Invitational on May 5, Okenwa won first place in both the 100- and 200-meter dashes, while the rest of the team claimed seven other events. Applewhite said of the team ' s overall performance, " The team performed quite well during the meets up to the Big Ten. We had strong performances from all groups, distance, field events and sprint- ing. " The track team ' s season did not end with all the success they hoped for, but the individual efforts still remained strong. The season included many accomplishments in individual events and records. ISA junior Kevin Lamb said, " It was an honor to run for Michigan, and to be proud for one another on and off the track.

Of course, the Michigan men ' s golf team embodied all of these during its 2001-2002 campaign. Throughout the intense tournaments and invitationals, team members consistently maintained high levels of academic achieve- ment. " You come to the University of Michigan first and foremost to get your degree, then to play collegiate golf. That ' s the order we always keep it in, " declared head coach Jim Carras, in his twentieth and final year at the helm. Carras ' program has fostered 34 Academic All-Big Ten citations since 1987 and ten National Golf Coaches Association National Scholar Athletes awards in the past nine seasons. The golf team kept nine members on its active roster. As per standard practice, the team played two ' seasons: ' fall and spring. Though they practiced throughout the year, there was a hiatusfrom varsity competition between the end of October and the onset of March, when the season resumed with the Wolverine South Invitational in Savannah, Georgia. The far and wide travels of the team included the Tillinghast Tournament in Scarsdale, New York, the Duke Golf Classic in Durham, North Carolina, the Xavier Invitational in Mason, Ohio, and the Badger Invitational in Verona, Wisconsin at which senior Andy Matthews earned the top placement for the Wolverines during their fall season when he tied for 6th place with a score of 214. Coach Carras was renowned for his superlative communication skills with team members, stemming from his own golfing interests. Carras had organized and hosted many NCAA tournaments, earning him great respect amidst his field. His additional accomplishments included bringing three teams to the NCAA Regional Champi- onships, the 1996-97 squad having qualified for the National Championship finals. The Michigan men ' s golf team had finished third in the Big Ten Championship tournament four times and placed in the top half consistently.

With a triumph at the Hawkeye Invitational in April, the team marked its third title; the first-round total of 299 was the fourth time the Maize and Blue swung under 300. The summer mid-season saw junior Kim Benedict and senior Misia Lemanski battling it out for the Michigan Women ' s Amateur Champion- ship in July; Benedict won the title, the second in her career. Meanwhile, senior LeAnna Wicks was named the Midwest Collegiate Amateur Series Player of the Year, a reward for her winning two of the five tournaments in which she competed. Starting the fall season having won three team titles in the spring of 2001, the women ' s golf team paced themselves for a winning season. Wicks agreed with the collective team energy: " We are all coming off of great summers and this first performance is a sign of the work that we put in. This is good momentum for us going into the rest of the fall season. " At the Lady Northern Invitational, the team placed first out of 14 competitors, only the fourth time in the program ' s history that it opened the season with a team title. Benedict led the team with a career-best 21 7 tournament total strokes by shooting rounds of 74-73-70, earning her runner-up honors. Speaking in a press release about the team ' s win at the Lady Invita- tional, Lemanski said, " We finished 1 0th as freshmen at the Lady Northern and to see where we ' ve come and to see how we ' ve improved is nice to see. Our confidence is very high right now and we played so well. When you have a team playing well it makes you play well.

The official ' s flag snapped upas the bow ball crossed the finish line, making the second varsity eight the first boat in the history of the program to capture a national title. That moment the Wolverines came out on top and the shouts from the sidelines were tremendous. The NCAA regatta was a success for all the University boats, the first varsity eight taking third and the varsity four taking second in their respective Grande Finals.The season was complete and forthe first time the Wolverines were NCAA Championship runners-up. The athletes in the boat, however, knew what the spectators did not see. Crew took work, a lot of long, painful hours and serious dedication. Senior psychology major and varsity team member Christina Meyer said, " We worked harder than we ever had before. It definitely began during our winter training. " That training was hours put in on indoor rowing machines that measured individual strength and endurance. But individual strength was not enough; crew also relied on teamwork, bringing the nine members of the boat together. " I think that the first time we started to think and come together (as a team) was at the retreat in Pinckney, " said LSA senior and three-year coxswain Fazeela Siddiqui. " We were stuck in a heated, tiny log cabin with a ton of snow outside and were forced to come up with one team goal that had subgoals. It took over 1 hours and was emotional, intense and tiring, but forthefirst time we were not fifth. We were national runners-up, " Siddiqui added. Surely the sweat and work paid off when Head Coach Mark Rothstein remarked, " I am really proud of this group of athletes. They raced hard and raced well. Finishing second is a great step for this program. We are losing a great group of seniors. They are the main reason we finished as well as we did today. " The spring season ' s success was not only at the NCAA championship. In both the Central Region Championships and Big Ten Championships, the Wolverine women took first. Additionally, they took first at the Ohio State Buckeye Invitational and won all three of their dual races. A record like last season ' s made the fall a new kind of challenge. Meyer said it was one the team was ready to handle. " We made a giant leap in our national standings last year and this year will build on that, " she said. " We have a lot of experience on this year ' s team but we also have a lot of new faces. Our freshmen are amazing and we have really strong girls who came up from our novice squad. It ' s a new era for Michigan crew and it ' s really exciting. I can ' t wait to see the amazing things this team will do this year. " It was this hunger that fueled t he fall season.

The team represented the University by dominating the Big Ten Championships and advancing to the NCAA ' s for the ninth consecutive year. Leading the way for the Wolverines was senior Bridget Knaeble, who was awarded MVP on the team, named an All-American for the fourth year in a row and was a finalist for the Honda Award. Yet, it was the girls ' teamwork that led them to their unbelievable victories for the season. After the team ended its regular season with a 1 97.575-1 93.675 thumping of 1 6th ranked West Virginia, the team proceeded to the Big Ten Championships. The seventh-ranked Wolverine gymnasts dominated the rest of the teams in the Big Ten Conference and scored a 1 97.1 50 to capture first place and their third consecutive Big Ten Championship. Leading the way for the Wolverines was Knaeble, who won the uneven bar event, and senior Christine Michaud, a vault specialist who tied her career high of 9.950. The Maize and Blue had another specialist capture an event title, as junior Shannon MacKenzie tied her career best with a 9.925 to win the balance beam. With the team effort, the gymnasts had nine athletes in 1 2 events receive recognition as members of the All-Big Ten team. For the last few weeks before the big event, the unofficial theme song of the team was " Survivor " by the group Destiny ' s Child. The team did more than survive at the NCAA Championships team preliminaries and all-around competition; they triumphed to the NCAA Super Six Finals. Led by NCAA all-around co-champion freshman Elise Ray, the team posted the program ' s third highest NCAA championship team score of 1 96.525 and finished second to the first-ranked UCLA team. Ray led the team back to the NCAA Super Sixfinals by winning the session on the beam with a score of 9.925, tied for second on the uneven bars with a score of 9.900 and third on floor with a score of 9.925. As for the team, their scores on the floor exercise (49.275) and balance beam (49.050) were both the third highest in its NCAA Championship history. To end an already outstanding season, the team took third place at the Super Six Finals in a terrific battle between three of the nation ' s elite programs. Ray scored a 39.625, the highest all-around score ever by a University gymnast at the NCAA championships.

That was thethought in the minds of the men ' s gymnastics team members as they en- tered the 2000-2001 season looking to regain the Big Ten Championship title and make it theirs for three years in a row. The team also carried a memory of last year ' s second place finish at the NCAA tournament, a competition they dominated in 1999. With a number one seed in the 2001 Gymlnfo preseason coaches poll, team members kicked off the season furiously striving for both team and individual goals. They cleaned upatthe opening tournament of 2001, claiming the top honor at Windy City Invitational in Chicago. It was the first time in the 31 -year history of the tournament that the University took home the title. The very next week Michigan crushed 2 ranked Ohio State for the first dual meet in Ann Arbor. When the team headed into the Big Ten Championship tourna- ment with a strong season start and a 1 2-1 record, the championship seemed in their grasp. Unfortunately, the goal turned out to be just out of reach for the team. The Wolverines took second place at the Big Ten, narrowly behind Ohio State. When it came time for the NCAA championship, the University made a solid showing, finishing fourth as a team in the national finals. Even though the Big Ten and NCAA championship titles remained elusive, at the individual level the team still realized theirhighhopes.JuniorScottVetereearned his first parallel bars championship at the Big Ten indi- vidual event finals, senior Daniel Diaz-Luong finished second on the high bar, and sophomores Kris Zimmerman and Jamie Hertza tied for second place on the floor exercise.

Said Rademacher, " It is my goal to take the program to the next level. The experience we have gained over the past few years is great and should really help us in the near future. " After a lackluster start to the season, the team rebounded and won nine of its next 1 1 games, falling only to Illinois in overtime and eighth- ranked Penn State. Leading the team in points was junior defender Amy Sullivant, fol- lowed by junior forward Abby Crumpton and junior forward Andrea Kayal. Said Rademacher on Sullivant ' s performance after one game, " Amy is our most dangerous player right now. " Crumpton was one of the players keeping her eye on the ball. " One of our goals is to make the NCAA Tournament but all we ' re thinking about is the next game, " she said in a press release. Sophomore goalkeeper Suzie Grech led the defense. Because the team ' s offense played so aggressively, Grech and three solid defenders - Sullivant, junior Vicky Whitley, and junior Captain Carly Williamson - managed to collect eight shutouts over the first 1 5 games. " Suzie may not face many shots but when she does she ' s ready, " Rademacher stated. Although Big Ten teams were in close competition, the Wolverines were confident heading into postseason play. " The tournament is up for grabs. The Big Ten has been beating up on each other all season. We ' re feeling pretty confident right now about our chances; we just have to do it on game day, " said Rademacher. byRobMcTear keepingSCOre 2 Virginia 3 ||| 2 Loyola Marymount 3 ||| 2 California 4 ||| 1 Kentucky 2 ||| 1 Dayton O ||| 4 Detroit ||| 1 Illinois 2 | 1 Iowa ||| 2 Northwestern ||| 1 Wisconsin ||| 4 Ohio State ||| 2 Penn State 6 ||| 4 Indiana 2 ||| 1 Purdue O ||| 2 Minnesota ||| Oakland ||| 2 Michigan State 1 ||| 1 Notre Dame 2 ||| 2 Western Michigan Sports | 21 3 After kicking the ball away from a Western Michigan opponent, senior defender Dave George looks on to see if his teammates will recover.

Kern led the men ' s soccer team into their second varsity season with Head Coach Steve Burns at the helm. Coming off of their inaugural season with a 6-10 record, the team had a lot of growing to do. During the spring season, the team and the coaching staff came together and focused on what brought such an eclectic group of athletes together in the first place: a love for the game and a desire to learn more about it. Fun was a running theme throughout the spring season training sessions and was even incorporated into the practice schedule. Said Coach Burns, " There was one session per week, Thursdays, which there was no coaching. Players would show up and we would put three on a team, and the winning team would stay on the field. The players realized that they weren ' t going to be hearing things from their coaches, and I think they really looked to Thursdays as a time to play hard and have fun. " Additionally, the team tooktime to relax during preseason training, held in Travers e City; the team had the normal two-a-day practice schedule along with an informal tournament involving different types of games all geared toward soccer conditioning. Said senior defender JJ Kern, " We incorporated a week-long competition between groups of players which included a dune run at Sleeping Bear National Park, a ' 4 v 4 ' tournament, soccer tennis, a soccer skills competition, and a game where we were given pictures of some of the guys when they were young and we had to figure out who they were. During the dune race Robert Turpin, who is an extremely fast runner, ended up falling flat on his face running down the dune. He came up just covered in sand. " These games were not only meant to condition the bodies of the players but also their minds. When people were involved in a competition they naturally came together, helped each other and overall got to know one another better. All of these things were goals of the coaching staff and were achieved successfully at the beginning of the team ' s season. One disadvantage the team faced throughout the season was having to switch between four home fields, including Pioneer High School, Saline High School, the Varsity field and Elbel Field. Also, the fact that this was only their second season together could have put a big damper on their confidence to compete with other Big Ten schools who had soccer programs running for decades. by Rob McTear Western Michigan 2 ||| 2 Oakland 2 ||| O Indiana 3 ||| Bowling Green 1 ||| 2 Michigan State 4 | 2 Wisconsin 1 ||| 1 Florida International 2 ||| Fur-man 4 |||1 Ohio State Sports | 21 5 Her arm out- stretched, f e s h m a n K i m b er 1 y Plaushines reaches the ball just in time to make her shot.

The Wol- verines were unable to fill the void left by losing Brooke Hart and Danielle Lund, who combined for 1 53 career victories. Instead of the leadership and experience of Hart and Lund on the court, the Maize and Blue were forced to rely on two true freshmen, Kavitha Tipirneni and Chrissie Nolan, at the number one and two single spots respectively. While talented and promising, Tipirneni and Nolan simply lacked the experience nec- essary to be successful at the top two singles spots. While the Wolverines expected the 2000-2001 sea- son to be filled with growth and learning experiences, the team, early in the season, showed promise. After rolling over their first three opponents, the Maize and Blue appeared to be on their way to a winning season. However, in their fourth match of the season, the Wol- verines ran into a tough University of Kentucky team. Against the Wildcats, the Maize and Blue were unable to win even a single set. After the loss to Kentucky, the Wolverine ' s season quickly deteriorated. The team dropped its next five matches before rebounding slightly with a modest three-game winning streak. However, the Wolverines could not maintain the mo- mentum of victory and dropped seven of their last eight matches, including the last six in a row. Despite the trying nature of the season, the Wolver- ines did have some bright spots.Tipirneni became only the third freshman in the women ' s tennis program ' s history to be named to the All-Big Ten Conference team in her first season. Tiperneni was not the only Wolverine to earn post-season awards; Nolan also claimed a prestigious post-season accolade. Nolan was selected as one of four recipients of the Bill Talbert Junior Sportsmanship Award presented by the United States Tennis Association for outstanding sportsman- ship displayed during tournament play. by Jon Hammer From the baseline, sophomore Jennifer D u p r e z slams an overhead shot.

Despite their youth, the 2000-2001 squad tallied the same Big Ten record as the previous squad, and earned a trip to the NCAA championships. With only four upperclassmen on the roster, the Wolverines entered the season planning on gaining experience while trying to stay competitive. While the Wolverines tore through their first five dual matches, and soared to 29th in the national rankings, trouble brewed in the upcoming Big Ten season. The Wolverines ' early season success was largely due to out- standing doubles play - the team captured the doubles point in each of its first five matches. Furthermore, Juniors Henry Beam and Ben Cox combined for five wins and three losses over the first five dual matches at the number one and two single ' s spots respectively. However, after early season suc- cess, the Wolverine ' s doubles teams began to falter. The Wolverines failed to claim the doubles point in five of their next six dual matches, dropping all six matches. While the Wolverine ' s season appeared to be tail-spinning out of control, coach Mark Mees, looked to his players for help. Mees allowed the players to decided on what the doubles pairings would be. Looking for a spark, the team inserted sophomores Chris Rolf and Chris Shaya at the number one doubles spot. While Rolf and Shaya combined for just a 3-4 record at the number one spot, they rekindled the competitive intensity the team had lost during its six game skid. With a renewed determination, the Wolverines won seven of their final nine regular season dual matches before faltering at the Big Ten Championships to Minnesota. The young Wolverines man- aged to salvage a season that appeared headed for disaster and turned it into a moderate success. by Jon Hommer 7 Western Michigan O ||| 4 Tulane 3 ||| 4 DePaul 3 ||| 5 Louisiana-Lafayette 2 ||| 5 Ball State 2 ||| 3 Northwestern 4 ||| 2 Indiana State 5 ||| 3 Minnesota 4 ||| Miami 7 ||| 2 Clemson 5 ||| O Notre Dame 7 ||| 7 Bowling Green O ||| Illinois 7 ||| 4 Wisconsin 3 ||| 4 Penn State 3 ||| 4 Ohio State 3 ||| B Michigan State 1 ||| 2 Iowa 5 ||| 5 Indiana 2 Ml 4 Purdue 3 ||| Sports | 21 9 HOUSING BY JENNIE PUTVIN ASIA GRIFFIN For most of us, we experienced our first taste of freedom at college. Living on our own al- lowed us to make our own schedules, chose our own apartments, and decide when we wanted to throw our parties. In the residence halls, there was never a short- age of excitement. Midnight fire drills and late night study sessions were a common occur- rence. Some students opted for a more communal and less expensive living arrangement moved into one of campus ' several co-ops. We crammed our belongings into overflow rooms and lounges because of the overcrowd- ing in the residence halls. Friendly faces like that of Sexy Grandpa in the Bursley cafeteria made our res-hall experience a better one. We trudged all over campus searching for the perfect house with the perfect porch, a dish- washer, and two bathrooms. Early morning commutes were the standard for those of us who lived off campus. Whether we lived on North Campus or on East University, we all learned lessons outside of class by living as a college student. 220 | Housing Filled with bellongings, a room that normally houses two stu- dents houses three. Because of the un- usual amount of students living in the residence halls, many people lived in either overflow rooms or in con- verted lounges. photo by Betsy Foster Housing | 221 baits and bursley Baits - Front Row: Bernard Drew, Corey James, Reena Shukla, Sealoyd Jones III, Alison Aldrich Row 2: Mahlet Mesfin, Nishtha Mehta, Vera Eremeeva, Cecile Bosshard, Eduardo Reyes Back Row: Alisha Barnes, Paul Holland, Kristina Korosi, Lesley Carr, Rachel Amos, Steve Carrion, Joel Thompson, Timothy Johnson photo by Sarah Johnson Baits - Front Row: Falen Lockett, (Catherine McGee, Alissa Zastrow, Tamara Spadafore, Chelsea MacMullan, Katharine Lennox Row 2: Michael Lent, Eva Rogers, Eugene Choi, Sessey Lynch, Edward Baskerville, Daniel Minnich, Thomas Heid Row S3: Charles Lynem, Nathan Comstock, Steven Sevler, Emily Hikade, Athanasios Yiaslas, Matthew Mosca, Zachary Anderson, Sarah Roberts Back Row: David Charles, Elvontio Peterson, Patrick Smith, Jason Williams, Fredrick Juarez, Michael Michaud, Tony Ding, David Wintermute, Brian Walsh, Jason Powell, Hsin-Ting Huang pholo hv Sarah Johnson Bails - Front Row: Brittney Funchcss, Ametria McCloud, Jessica Holmes, Michael Huerta, Dean Broda Row 2: Rence Szostek, Monika Patel, Karen Andrews, Sarah Barr, Lydia Gregg, Anita Reehal, Shalyn Stewart Row 3: Naoshi Hosoda, Ivan Mohd Nor, Sharence Nai Sowat, Alexander Acemyan, Daniel Llanes, David Dahn Back Row: Jonathon Thorndycrafl, Zachary Cauchy, Andrew Kline, Zack Norwood, Morgan McDonald, Lauren Schwartz, Tiffany Riley, Douglas Kurth, Robert Smith, Brandon Giampa photo by Sarah Johnson Baits - Front Row: Jeewon Lee, Retika Rajbhandari, Christopher Foye, Kristina Korosi, Ponti Fabuce, Jerome Sullivan Row 2: Marc Ressl, Landen Zackery, Denneen Russell, Willie Harrell, April Johnson Row 3: Jessica Augusta, Tarpan Parekh, James Mtckens, John Pollock, Si- Wayne Long, Hana Bae Back Row: Jennifer Ostas, Brian Reiche, Katherine Loughlin, Patrick Carlson, Matthew Kaczynski, Noah Kellermann, Michael Szoke, Daniel Dunkel, Ashley Gomes, Taj Harris photo by Sarah Johnson Bursley: 1st Rotvig - Front Row: Robert Jackson, Andrew Taylor, Daniel Shertok, Thomas Burpee, Matthew Robishaw, Hanna Bawab, Daniel Cook, James Walsh Row 2: Kevin Lim, Donald Leung, Joseph Vernon, Adam Powell, Joseph O ' Connor Jr, Nilay Parikh, Jasen Merita, Joseph Northrup, Aditya Kumar, Joseph Robinson, Herman Kwong, Anshul Aggarwal, Duncan Dotterrer Row S3: Rachit Jain, David Galus Row 4: Varun Agrawal, Jameson Mills, Tej Vaishnav Back Rowas: Michael Goff, Richard Becerra, Matthew Cassidy, Luke Malott, Jonathan Neff, Bradley Ross, Steven Kaneti photo by Et ' an Busch Bursley: 2nd Rotvig - Front Row: Zhi Tan, Ross Hughes, Christopher Dennis, Rahul Potdar, Michael Gazdecki, Michael Radakovich, Miles Smith, Sandeep Chinthireddy, Zhenghao Wu Row 2: David Eisenberg, Yong Han Tan, Brian Molloy, Lance Betway, Jay Huerta, Victor Sarto, Burke Snyder, Dumrong Mairiang, Bunpot Sirinulsomboon Back Row: Matthew Ehinger, Kevin Washington, Thomas Goodwin, Gregory Litvinskas, Thomas Jackson, Seth Toren-Herrinton, Corey Hayncs, KiAundre Garland, Paul Indyk photo by Evan Busch 222 I Dorm Food Dorm Food Advice THE POT PIES " Biting into a chicken nugget, first-year public health graduate student Steve Steiner enjoys a wide selection of food for dinner. Students consumed dorm food day after day in Bursley, which housed the largest cafeteria on campus, photo by Kate Maher by Cortney Dueweke hilethe University was renowned for its academics and athletics, there was one thing for which it was infamous: the dorm food. AlfordWg to the University ' s housing Web site, the residence hall meals offered " a wide array of food choices to please any palate " and included " healthy, delicious and fun choices. " Many students would beg to differ, however. Complaints about the sometimes unidentifiable entrees and days of leftovers echoed from students living in nearly every residence hall. " It was rough a lot of the time, " said Matt Cassatta, a junior film and video studies major who used to live in West Quad. " I pretty much spent every day praying for some sort of breaded chicken product. " In addition to chicken patties and nuggets, Cassatta listed cheese sticks and burgers as some of the more quality dishes, while he considered " anything with too much slop to it " to be the worst. Twin sisters Carla and Liana Rinaldi both senior economics majors and former Alice Lloyd residents had similar sentiments. " I didn ' t like any of the meals; they couldn ' t even make macaroni and cheese right, " said Liana. " I thought that it was the worst food that I have ever eaten. " " I thought that it was inedible, " agreed Carla. Others, however, found the cafeteria cuisine not only edible, but satisfactory. Senior biochemistry major Mike Bass, a former Markley resident, called the food there " decent. " His favorite meals in the cafeteria involved lasagna or spaghetti, but he tried to avoid the pot pies. " It was repetitive, but not much more so than eating in my apartment, " said Bass. " I would say it ' s not the worst; it ' s your average dorm food. " The University ' s " Maize and Blue " menus, which were intended to give students more selection by alternating meals at different residence halls, seemed to have a small effect on diner satisfaction. " [The different menus] can score you quality meals two days in a row if you ' re paying attention, " explained Cassatta. For those who had meal credits to spare but preferred to avoid cafeteria food, several residence halls provided snack bars. Many students used their credits on the snack bars ' unhealthy delicacies instead of " wasting " them on standard cafeteria fare. And those students lucky enough to have Entree Plus often detoured to fast food joints in lieu of dinner in the cafeteria. Whether it was considered sufficient or pathetically substandard, residence hall food was one item that nearly everyone on campus had an opinion about. Housing | 223 ...and the F r e s h m e n COMETH by Carly McEntee : irst year veryone seemed to remember move-in their fi Jr ear of college. Emotions and feelings ran wild as students worried if they would get along with their roommates while trying to figure out how to fit all of their possessions into a 9x1 1 room. The 2001 move-in occurred on Wednesday, August 29 and Thursday, August 30. Although half of the stu- dents moved in each day, it still created a huge amount of chaos as the thousands of first-year students moved in. As move-in occurred, a variety of reactions took place at the prospect of leaving home. Resident advisor and senior Adam Spindler observed on move-in day that " wide-eyed freshmen, half of them eager to cut the final apron strings and gain independence, the other half feeling the first pangs of separation anxiety, did their best to hide those emotions and remain calm. Residence hall staff struggled to maintain order among a nameless mob. Fortunately, it was over as quickly as it began. " One of the major adjustments every first-year student had to make was to the dorm food. Those students used to home-cooked meals had to adjust to such foreign cafeteria foods as spinach feta quesadillas, Salisbury steak and French toast sticks. First-year student David McMurtrie commented that there was " too much tofu. I haven ' t seen anyone eat that stuff yet anyways. " Move-in probably remained the most nerve-racking part of the year because few people knew their roommates before they moved in. The first few days were about getting to know each other ' s habits, likes and dislikes. Students attempted to get along with their roommates, and the University attempted to further this with the activities of Welcome Week. This gave everyone a sense of belonging to their class and eased the anxieties of move-in. As he unpacks, first-year LSA student Cory Patrick wonders where to put all of his clothes in the limited space of his new room. First-year students were forced to adjust to the tight spaces in the dorms during move-in, phofo by l juren Proux 224 I Residence Hall Move-In b u r s I e y 2nd Van Hooscn - Fronl Row: Brooke Erickson, Joy Chatterjee, Amanda Kokas, Sarah Normile Row 2: Lisa Vandercruyssen, Jennifer Ong, Maureen Fencyk, Rebecca Koussari-Amin, Kelly Monahan, Amy Erskine Back Row: Elizabeth Hoyt, Sarah Shepherd, Leslie Forgach, Shaili Jain, Anna Falkowska, Elizabeth Baltcn, Cynthia Parker, photo by Evan Busch 3rd Van Hoosen - Front Row: Melissa Czuprenski, Antoinette Vitale, Kristen Satala, Kristina Drabkina, Arlene Ocasio Row 2: Mindy Pickens, Jennifer Trepeck, Elizabeth Chase, Yee-Fang Chen, Elizabeth Thomas, Rita Johnson, Alyce Johnson Back Row: Elizabeth Filios, Madlyn Moskowitz, Jodie Elenz, Melissa Melson, Jessica Thomas, Elisa Huang, Heidi Rosenzweig, Anna Collins, Vicki Davis, photo by Evan Busch n 3rd Hamilton - Front Row: Daniel Hardaway, Alexander Gomoll, Kevin Cheng, Evan Lowe, Fernando Tarango, Sunwoo Chung, Wan-Yuh Wang Row 2: Stefan Richter, Jason Heft, Henry Shin, Jeffrey Krause, Shuo Zhang, Matthew Giannetti, Mark Barbieri Row 3: Nikolas Kazmers, James Marcin, Ghassan Killu, Deane Franso, Devin Provenzano, Eric Gilpin, Matthew Holler bach, Jeffrey Chen Back Row: Matthew Stich, Sean Motsinger, .Joseph Pawlik, Joseph Mead, Adam Williams, Marc Kaplan, Christopher Bat ley, David Szewczyk, Slawomir Sadowicz, Andrew Baigrie. photo by Evan Busch 3rd Lewis- Front Row: Ching-Yuen Ng, Edgar Tabila, Brian Wang, Adam Duddles, Wei Ng, Cesar Tapia Jr Row 2: Rahul Burde, Max Mollhagen-Jaksa, Michael Cheung, Daniel Bartz, Harnoor Tokhie, Syed Raza, Andrew Rau, Michael Prohaska Row 3: Kakesh Michael, Jared Suess, To bias Long, Ravi Shukla, Aaron Lewis, Shawn Lee, Mark Giromini, Paul Frederickson Jr, Stephen Crafton Back Row: Noah Shanti, Pongsakorn Sommai, Michael Long, Joseph Casler, Miguel Vega. photo by Evan Busch 3rd Kotvig - Front Row: Christopher Hunt, Sheng-yen Chen, Yuji Yaginuma, Kayu Ng, Aaron Kennell, Nicolas Zapata, Maurice Davis, Matthew Turner, Jason Chien, Jason Mayol Row 2: Jason Angus, Kunlun Ouyang, William Whiilock, Frederick Peterbark, Charles Hwang, Derrick Reed, Alden Spraggins, Martin Moore, Aaron Halford, Yuxi Lai, Scott Doerrfeld, Jonathan Ho Back Row: Darrcll Ford, Jeremy Egner.

Playing pool was just one of the many activities that were readily available and inexpensive to students on North Campus, photo bv Lauren Prau distanced from Central Campus and all efits that came along with it, North . was seen by some as remote and detached from the University. But for many students living in Baits and Bursley whether voluntarily or involuntarily situated there - North Campus life was better than they had ever imagined. ' The rooms are much larger than some of those on Central Campus, " said ISA first-year student Lindsay Nayler, who was placed in Baits. " We have our own bathroom and it is quiet and it is small only 60 people, some of which are graduate students. And we have a kitchenette, which is very convenient on Sunday nights, when the cafeterias don ' t serve dinner, " she added. " We only have to walkthree minutes [to Bursley] for food, there is a lot of green space up here for playing frisbee, football, etc., and it is prettier than Central, asthere are more trees and woods. " LSA first-year student Kellie O ' Neil James agreed. " I really enjoy the wide open spaces up here, " she said. " Coming from Hawaii, I have grown to appreciate greenery and open space as the latter is scarce in most areas on the overpopulated island of O ' ahu. I think fall on North Campus is only second to the Arboretum as far as Ann Arbor goes. " James also enjoyed having her own bathroom and the peace and quiet that went hand-in-hand with North Campus living. " The food up here is betterthan most of the dorms on Central, and we feel like a tight family up here since we ' re all in the same situation, " she added. Junior general studies major Harvard Ried chose to live in Bursley his first two years because he knew there would bea place to park his car. " I think it was [worth it], just because I had my car, and being able to leave and go home or leave and go out whenever I wanted to was worth it, " he said. Of course, there were drawbacks too, especially for students without their own form of transportation. " The buses are a problem, " complained Nayler. ' The only other disadvantages are that you ' re cut off from all the activity of Central Campus; all your friends on Central don ' t want to get on a bus to see you, you don ' t want to get on a bus to see them, and all the restaurants and shops are down there. " Despite the inconvenience, Nayler felt that the small, home-like atmosphere in Baits and the independence it fostered had prepared her for life in off-campus housing. " Friends are few in quantity [on North Campus], but substantial in quality, " she added. To many, North Campus met all their needs, with some added bonuses. Whether placed on ' In -1 North Campus by choice or by chance, many students living in Bursley and Baits found the area to be more interesting and beneficial than expected. 226 | North Campus Life b u r s I e y Ith Hamilton - Front Row: Jilienne Abano, Halli Farber, Jennifer Feinberg, Jaclyn Milose, tristen Nowicki Row 2: Daniela Marquez, Anjali Mchra, Kavita Sukerkar, Rebecca Waldman, ennifer Van De Velde, LaVita Thompson Row 5: Jennifer MacDonald, Dawn Cushman, Megan Turner, Marie Nolte, Melissa Ackerman, Lindsay Saewitz, Lauren Dawson, Andrea Bosco, Erica -toward Back Row: Mary Kryska, Christina Kiessel, Allison Tingwall, Sarah Sutton, Marjorie .ewis, Kristen Pelachyk. photo by Evan Busch 4th Van Hoosen - Front Row: Geoffrey Mayers, Daniel Knaggs, Nicole Durham, Katherine King, Sara Emerson, Lorna McGee Row 2: Andre Brown, John Pulker, Diana Hester, Gregory Hukill, David Lam, Michael Vitek Back Row: Marco Fujimoto, Thomas Hull, Daniel Warren, Brendan Ross, Alex Noppe, Anthony Gilleo, Keith Dixon. photo by Evan Busch thout their 01 ffl, ' complaiN ctivity of Cents entral don ' t wai don ' twanttogi lerestaoraotssn we in Baits as had prepared l Friendsarefo eta ith Lewis - Front Row: Jennifer Jacobson, Amy Courtright, Diana Lawrence, Carolyn Huang, Erin Stevens, Neena Vemuri, Lindsay Kokoczka Row 2: Erin Garvey, Kathryn Houghton, Celimar Valentin, Erin Horton, Kimberly Garelick, Heather McManus, Alison Rath, Lindsay Jolley, Rayana Bitar Row 3: Annie Dunsky, Jill Diesel, Erica Jolokai, Makila Meyers, Lindsay jBerger, Jacqueline Elson, Cecelia Thomas Back Row: Erica Stein, Sarah Ekdahl, Jamie Riste, Caroline Haberl, Jillian Ewing, Christine Shin, Melissa Donovan, Julie Parow, Laura McCreary. vhoto b Evan Busch 5 Bartlett - Front Row: Christina Kjolhede, Erin Wakefield, Emily Galopin, Kelley-Marie Phelps, Shawn Brickner Row 2: Seina Miki, Theresa Stern, Natalie Johnson, Chuoh Ngeh, Gina McKie Back Row: Kristin Anderson, Karla Krause, Margaret Schneider, Kimberly Kunihiro, Leigh Hogler, Christina Sammut. photo by Evan Busch !

" Ron Barker had been Tg food to University students for thirteen years. Beginning in September of 1 988, Barker has worked in the cafeterias of numerous dorms on campus but he said that " Bursley is home, " and that is where he still worked during the 2001-02 school year. Known best for the red Sexy Grandpa hat he wore, as picked out by his granddaughter some nine years ago, the Bursley residents enjoyed his smiling face behind the counter. Jessica Sohl, a first year ISA student said that she and her friends " al ways lookfor him because he ' s great and always gives us a lot of food. " When asked how he felt about being known as Sexy Grandpa he remarked, " It doesn ' t bother me. If that ' s how people recognize me, that ' s cool. " Barker, a retired veteran after working in the Air Force for 22 years, enjoyed his job as a food server at Bursley, as well as his constant interaction with the students. " It ' s my job to interact with the students and make sure that they have quality service. First appear- ance is where it ' s at. " Barker took great pride in his occupation, always making sure thatthe students were served in a clean and friendly environment. Lindsay Saewitz,anotherfirst year LSA student, fondly spokeof Sexy Grandpa: " One time he just sat down with us and we formed a friendship. The other day he gave me a teddy-bear that he got from one of those claw ma- chine games. " His smiling face and friendly attitude appealed to all students, all of whom had only good things to say about him. It was an honor to be consid- ered one of his pals. Michelle Sommers, a first-year LSA student, hinted, " Back in the kitchen, people know that when he says oranges in reference to you it means he likes you. " Outside of Bursley, Sexy Grandpa ' s popularity grew with the t-shirts sported around campus by the Burlodge residents. On the front the shirts say " Michi- gan Burlodge; " on the back they read " Served by Sexy Grandpa. " Started approximately three years ago, the students back then sold about 1500 t-shirts. During the 2001-02 school year, they started a new line of t- shirts with a patriotic theme to honor those who per- ished in the New York Washington D.C. tragedy. A third of the proceeds from each t-shirt sold went to the Red Cross Relief Fund, something that Barker truly wanted to contribute to as a veteran. Armed with his trademark hat, Sexy Grandpa finishes a long day of hard work. Veteran Ron Barker remained the keystone of the Bursley cafeteria system, giving friendly service and inspiration to Students, photo by Lauren Proux 228 | Sexy Grandpa b u r s I e y 4th Lewis - Front Row: Ryan Gall, Jonathan Clifton, Carl Zanardo, Jesse Villanueva, Amit Chakrahorty, Sejong Han, Brian Gallagher Row 2: Keng Teo, Marc Zawislak, Jonathan Culbert, Antonio Vittorini, Timothy Hong, Herton Seda, Michael Bryant, Christopher Lees Row 3: Nii Tetteh, Corey Wilson, Jason Otto, Derek Przybylo, Anthony Ragnone, Steven Romanowski, Justin Zarb, Stephen Friend Back Row: Brandon Lee, Konstantinos Boukouris, McLean Echlin, Christopher Hu-l.ik, Dante Herron, Yuan-min Tang, Gregory Kreiling, Matthew Harrison, Jacob Mann, photo hy E fan Busch 2nd Sanford -

False alarms were just one of the inconveniences to students living in residence halls. photo hy Toxin Akinmusuru ALARMS by Tiffany Marsch Ijst as many if not all students had experi- dorm life, they also suffered through numerous false fire alarms. Usually the damage caused by these fire alarms going off in the dead of night was simple lack of sleep. Senior English major Lori Mathews be- grudgingly recollected a particularly bad night her first year in Couzens: " I was awakened at 5:30 in the morning, the fifth time that morning, to get out of my bed and wait outside in the cold until we were given the ' all clear. ' " However, on occasion such lack of sleep caused students some serious concern for their own welfare, such as getting enough rest before an early alarm clock. Maureen Rioux, a senior in the School of Educa- tion, lived in East Quad her first two years where once the alarm was pulled four times in one night. Rioux remembered, " I had to work the next day at 8 a.m. and I was so ticked off. I think I just stayed in bed by the fourth ring but it was still annoying because of the noise. " Nevertheless, some students took false fire alarms as just a part of living in a dorm. One such student, sophomore computer engineering major Mary Beth Hojnowski, claimed, " Life in Markley would not have been complete without at least one or two false fire drills per week. " Hojnowski remembered one such drill on " the evening before midterms where the fire alarm was pulled not once, not twice, but three times in the middle of the night. " Thegeneral consensus seemed to be thatthe people who thought of themselves as amusing by pulling these alarms took little care in thinking how it would affect others in the dorm. Where on one hand it was good to know that the fire alarms worked in case of a real emergency, it became frustrating when the more rambunctious residents decided to make a game out of it all. With so many false fire alarms, many residents chose to hide out in their rooms instead of waiting out in the cold during the wee hours of the morning. 231 I Fire Alarms the bus by Carly McEntee EXPERIENCE he bus system was something most stu- dents at the University had experienced. Whether going to North Campus, taking a quick trip to Meijer ' s or Briarwood, or just out of laziness, the buses were part of the college experience. Many people did not have cars on campus and those that did discovered it was a pain to find parking. The only option left for these people was either the University bus system or the Ann ArborTran- sit Authority. Students ' first year usually was the time when they all became familiar with the bus system. Most first-year students depended on the AATA bus system in order to get groceries or enjoy a day of shopping. School of Engineering sophomore Joseph Martinez remembered his bus experience. " One time late at night I got on the bus and no one was there except for one girl, " he said. " I decided to have some fun, so I went and sat next to her. She thought I was weird so she moved up pretend- ing to get off and instead sat at fron t, so I just moved up and sat next to her. " The students most familiar with the bus sys- tem were those who lived or attended classes on North Campus who found it necessary to take the bus every day to get to and from Central Campus. The biggest complaint from students living on North Campus was the fact that the bus system did not run late enough, making it hard to get home after a night of partying. The North Campus buses ran until about 3:30 a.m. on a usual weekend night, but if the students were out after that time they had no other way to return home, except to call a cab or the Night Owl. ISA sophomore Ashley Welton said of the University bus system, " It ' s great during the week, but at night and on the weekends it is a pain. " The University bus system and the AATA ex- perience was something hard for a University student to get around. One way or another, tak- ing the bus became an event that left most stu- dents with strange stories of getting lost or meet- ing interesting people on the bus. Boarding a campus bus, students brave the University ' s transporation to get to North Cam- pus. Traveling back and forth from Central to North Campus was a daily occurance for engineering, art, and music students, photo ty Li: Muuck . 232 I Busses bursley and west quad Bursley: 6 Douglas - Front Row: Brian Chan, Benjamin Remos, Reyes Lopez, Changsung Cho, Brandon Phenix, Jason Tolbert, Joshua Remsberg, Luke Raymond, Yunho Fong, Steve Rogers Row 2: Danny Yousif, Christopher Kauffman, Walter Olds, Devon Brown, Makael Burrell, David Kwaselow, Michael Kagan, Robert Ritter, Timothy Alcala, Abir Chopra, Cortney Sample Row 3: Darren Galligan, Ryan Croyle, Adam Giroux, Brian Rhee, Blake Nickles, Erik Young, Graham Newman, Yuan Cheng, Jeffrey Shattock, Phillip Boileau Back Row: Colin Daly, Umeme Hoye, E ' Ron Leveston, Benjamin Schleicher, Timothy Moore, Andrew Englehart, Matthew Lapinski, Charles Alshuler, Michael Wybro, Nathan Shields, photo by E fan Busch Bursley: 4 Douglas - Front Row: Haywai Chan, Christopher Heney, Howard Kuo, Siddharth Mehta, Mark Haynes, Ian Lermusiaux, Thomas Richard Row 2: Andrew Kalchik, Kelvin Ng, Matthew Green, Jason May, Cuong Nguy, Jordan Olive, J.

Students in triples sometimes found it hard to coordinate schedules to avoid inconveniencing each other, phoia by Betsy Foster by Cortney Dueweke riple the roommates, triple the fun: that was what some University students discovered when they found themselves living in triple rooms in the resi- dence halls. Sophomore elementary education major Katie Selva, sophomore ISA student Jennifer Marble and sophomore computer science major Beth Lee chose to live in a triple in Mosher-Jordan. Lee said she would definitely recommend the arrangement to others. " We all get along really well, " s he said. " We roomed with other people last year and have heard each other ' s roommate horror stories, so we know what to do and what not to do to minimize problems. " It ' s nice to have two people to hang out and chat with instead of just one, " she added. " With that extra bit of varied personality, it ' s less likely that we ' ll get tired of being with each other. " Marble said her roommates were her best friends. " It also helps me with communication, because if there is a problem, then we have to mediate between three people, instead of just two, " she added. As for the aspect of practicality, triples served their purpose. " One advantage is that you do not need to bring as much stuff to school; appliances are divided by three people instead of just two, " Selva pointed out. " Also, housing is cheaper. I would never be able to chose between my friends to decide who to live with. Living in a triple allowed all three of us to live together. " First-yeargenetics major KristinTyburski was placed in a Mosher-Jordan triple, but said she did not mind. " I get to meet more people this way and there is always someone there to talk to if I need it, " she said. Although the girls were mostly in favor of triples, there were drawbacks, including less privacy, less space and as Selva said having to endure the ringing of three alarm clocks every morning. But Lee said any small annoyances were minor compared to the benefits. " If you get ' stuck ' with a triple, don ' t get discour- aged, " advised Tyburski. " Just like everything else, it will be what you make of it.

The overflow of first-year students exceeded expected numbers, forcing University Housing to utilize residence hall lounges as part- time solutions; most students were permanently placed in a room within the first few weeks of the fall semester, photo by Befxy Foster he prospect of living withan unknown roommate caused enough anxiety during the summer before starting college. But for students who turned in their housing information late - therefore having no word on where or with whom they were living moving in was an even more nerve-wracking experience. " I was super-nervous coming to school because I was told I had nowhere to live! All summer long my friends mocked me by saying that I ' d be a ' homeless college student! ' " exclaimed Gaia Stenson, a first-year pre-med student, who ended up in a lounge in Markley because of the dorm overflow occurrence on the Hill. Though the temporary housing was originally a problematic issue, it turned out for the best for Gaia and her roommates. They luckily ended up in a quad, even though there were only three of them. As Gala ' s roommate Florence Nguyen-Quane happily interjected, " I absolutely love our spa- cious room and moreover, I love my roommates and get along with them great. As a matter of fact, I know that this place would not be the same without them here. I truly hope that we won ' t get moved out of this room or even if we do, that we stay close to each other. " Dorm overflow did not just occur on the Hill, but on North Campus as well. Bursley Hall had around 20 extra students to place,and so University Housing wasforcedtoconvert lounges in the residence hall into livable spaces. " We worked with the facility staff to equip the lounges with beds, desks, phones, high-speed Internet access ... there were some pretty nice setups, " explained Jeffery Stefancic, hall director of Bursley Hall. In fact, some of the temporary housing students got lucky with televisions and large desks as bonus equipment in their lounges-turned-rooms. It seemed, though the dorm overflow was a problem, those students faced with lounge living turned it into a workable and often times pleasurable experience. Whichever way one looked at it, the place students returned to after a busy day ' s work was still known as home, dorm room or not. Housing | 237 .on the hunt FOODS by Cortney Dueweke While cruising through the gro- cery store, senior philosophy major Taylor Lapidus stops to ponder over the best ce- reals to purchase. Many University students tried to do a lot of grocery shopping at once and found it nec- essary to buy in bulk in order to keep costs down. photo by Ben Hayes Wth living off-campus came more responsibilities, including pay- ing for utilities and cooking meals instead of eating in the cafeteria. One of the most unavoidable of these " grown-up " respon- sibilities was grocery shopping a task that was sometimes fun, sometimes ob- noxious, but always necessary. Many students had favorite stores and a routine for grocery shopping. " I like to shopatMeijer because I can find just about anything I need, from groceries to tooth- paste, " said Michelle Norman, a senior psy- chology major. " I also like the fact that I can buy Meijer-brand food items, which are cheaper than name brands. " Junior psychology major Crystal Golding also preferred Meijer ' s. " I don ' t sleep and neither do the Meijer people, " she said. " It is also fun to play hide-and- seek because it is so big. Plus, you can buy high-quality food items and highly fash- ionable clothes at the same time. Wal- Mart ' s got nothing on that place. " Tim Oleske, a senior economics major, frequented Bill ' s Market on Packard. Al- though Oleske said he usually went alone, Norman and Golding said they often went with friends. With company, " grocery shopping doesn ' t feel like as much of a chore, " explained Golding. When it came to the length of the trip, the amount of time spent grocery shop- ping also seemed split along gender lines. Golding and Norman both estimated it to take an hour or so, while Oleske claimed his shopping trips took only 1 minutes. All three saw both advantages and dis- advantages in the shopping process. Oleske thought the residence halls were more convenient, and said that he still ate dorm food sometimes, despite living in an off-campus apartment. Finding time to shop was not too diffi- cult, Oleske and Norman said. Golding, however, pointed out, " If I am too lazy to be doing homework, chances are I am feeling too lazy to buy groceries unless I have nothing left but a box of macaroni... but on those sorts of days, I will just order out! " Grocery shopping also sometimes led to embarrassing moments. " One time, I was swinging a bag around with milk in it and it fell out of the bottom and hit a car, " Golding laughed. " And once, I forgot my money and realized it after the cashier rang my stuff up for 10 minutes and bagged it for me. " As an inevitable part of a students life, grocery shopping could be both fun and a hassle. 238 | Grocery Shopping west quad 1st Rumsey - Front Row: Jamal Al-Amin, Timothy Williams, Joshua Zahler.

Kitchenettes pro- vided a welcome alterna- tive to dorm food. photo bv Nicole Muendelem by Tiffany Marsch Dving into the dorms meant moving away from lomeaild intoa life of communal living, scheduled meal times and food not quite like home cooking. Fortunately for many students in the dorms, the cafeteria was not the only option for meals. Although many students had mini- refrigerators and microwaves in their rooms, they still found good useforthe kitchenettes scattered around the dorms, whether there was one for the whole residence hall or one for every floor. Melissa Mariola, an ISA first- year student living in Stockwell, found the kitchenettes " quite useful ' giving residents " the opportunity to usean oven for quick meals. " Kellie Hoy, a first-year ISA student, claimed an even greater use for these mini-kitchens. " I live in Fletcher Hall and we don ' t have a cafeteria, so most of the residents cook their own meals, " she said. " The students living here are very respectful and they clean up after themselves. Some people really get into cooking and they make meals for everyone. " Where residents of this smaller dorm seemed bigger advocates of the kitchenettes, students in other dorms complained of the messes and noise involved with other people ' s cooking. Betsey Barbour resident Janelle Baranowski, an ISA first-year student, complained that " people usually don ' t clean up after themselves. Another thing that is annoying is when people come in there in the middle of the night to do their dishes and make a lot of noise. " While the refrigerator allowed for additional storage of the resident ' s food outside the refrigerators in their individual room, Baranowski said that " people leave re- ally old stuff in the fridge so I try not to open it. " Fellow Barbour resident and ISA sophomore Becky Davis agreed on the refrigerator, claiming that it was " pretty disgust- ing. " Overall Davis ' s perception of these kitchenettes as a second-time dorm resident was that while " the concept is novel, the execution is lacking. " As it was nice to have the luxury of being able to cook meals at students ' leisure, the issue of cleaning up and respecting fellow residents seemed neglected in the grand scheme of kitchenettes. So although they allowed for something closer to home cooking than the cafeteria, these miniature kitchens lacked one important detail: a parent to clean up afterwards.

Many RAs went beyond their expected duties and be- came friends with the stu- dents in their hall, photo by Tt s[n Akinmusttru i d e n t Xhe dorm experience was one that most sity students remembered filled with crazy stories. The resident advisor usually became a central figure in dorm life. Residents who lived in adormbecamefamiliarifnotwiththeirownRA,at least with stories of someone else ' s. RAshada muchtougherjobthan manypeople knew. According to Jeff Stefancic, the hall director of housing, about 350-400 applications were re- ceived, while only 125-150 juniors and seniors were chosen for RA and other residential posi- tions. Even though they did get benefits such as room and board paid for 100 percent which included 18 meals per week or the equivalent dollar amount, a small refrigerator, basic cable and an on-line computer the job remained stressful and busy. RAs were expected to put in 20 hours per week, but they also had to put more into their jobs. Regardless of whether a resident had a per- sonal relationship with her RA, the RA was the person about whom everyone on the hall gos- siped. Some people became bestfriends with their RAs while others never saw them. School of Engineering sophomore Jenny Abrams said of her disappearing RA freshman year: " I only saw my RA at two in the morning in the bathroom. " On the other hand, School of Natural Resources sophomore Hillary Richmond said her RA was " not just a name, [but] a great person. " They had many things expected of them, such as being a role model, building a hall community and just being available to help all of the residents out. Also, they had to sacrifice nights out in order to be on duty and make rounds which con- sisted of walking all through the dorms at all hours of the night to look for noise and drinking. ISA senior and RA Adam Spindler said of the experience of being an RA, " I have had some great relationships with my residents. As an RA, you get to meet a lot of new people and really learn a lot through interactions with others. " Whether strict or lenient, friendly or frighten- ing, RAs were undeniably an integral part of resi- dence hall living. 242 I Resident Advisors I west quad and harbour West Quad 2nd Wenley - Front Row: Vikram Bhaskaran, Valerian Jone, Michael Evashevski, John Mittelbach, Ryan Tobias Row 2: Jeffery Buresh, Nicholas Shang, Mathew Levy, Thomas Ratcliffe, Robert Hewlett III, Jason Roberts, Ravi Perry Back Row: Andrew Esper, Ryan Psenski, Justin Cam bridge, Daniel Adams, Derek Birch, Thomas Campion, Byung Lim. photo by Andrea Goff West Quad 1st Adams -Front Row: Intekhab Alam, Mark Rosso, Jeffrey Medlen, Robert Peccola, Marc Levin, Adam Stenavich Row 2: Jason Polan, Stephen Martin, Jason Isabel, Matthew Bracken, Stefan Kershow, Vivek Sachidanand, Andrew Bush, Christopher Lyman Back Row: Matthew Seitz, Timothy Gerdes, Maxwell Nelson, Alexander Pagliere, Nathan Martz, Stanley Floyd Jr, Jason Roover. photo by Betsy Foster West Quad 1st Winchell 1st Lloyd - Front Row: Nathan Brannen, Samir Lulla, Amy Ament, Simrun Kochhar, Tara Blakeslee, Matthew Leach, Shannon Glaspie, Michael Tan Row 2: James Arndt, Melissa Bylsma, Theresa Molyneux, Averil Davis, John Kim, Brian Wartella, Mark Corbin Row 3: Alan Webb, Marcus Bell, Jeffrey Miller, Steven Hobbs, Patrick O ' keefe, Arturo Zuniga, James Miller, Brian Church Back Row: Joseph Martinez, Matthew Jansma, Jonathan Neman, Vance Butler, Matthew Reynolds, Vincent Paviglianiti. photo by Betsy Foster 2nd Barhour - Front Row: Rinku Kapadia.

For a few though, choosing to live near campus was not the best bet. Instead they chose to commute from home and thus faced the nightmares of finding parking and trying to drive through traffic jams and crowds of pedestrians. Said senior business administration major David Her, a resident ofToledo, " Commuting can bea tremendous hassle. The biggest problem is parking. As everyone at the Univer- sity knows, the demand for parking far exceeds the supply. I must have accumulated over $350 in parking tickets during college, and still growing. " Parking had always been one of Ann Arbor ' s downfalls, making it very hard for those who did want or need to commute. Along with the parking was traffic. Early morning traffic was the worst near the city especially along the major arteries, such as State Street and Main Street. Hoards of people tried to enter campus each day and, without fail, they all did it at the same time. According to Jaiker Charles, a secondary education ma- jor, obstacles on the roads never failed to occur on the days he needed to commute. " Construction, snow and ice, or car accidents that make the trip longer can be frustrating and often seem to occur on the days that I need to be on time, " he said. For commuters, the biggest academic stumbling block was group work. Students who lived on campus could easily meet at any hour of the day anywhere on campus without much hassle, butforthecommuter,specifictimesand places had to be set to work on group projects. Since they had set time schedules that could rarely afford much change, com- muters were the black sheep of group work. Said Charles, " If I have group meetings or if I want to go to the library to study it is annoying to try to find a parking spot because it is impossible. Sometimes I have to go to the paying structures that charge 90 cents an hour. " Though there were many cons to commuting to campus, some students still chose to drive. They were happy at home some had steady jobs, others just wanted the extra quiet time away from campus to study. Charles summed it up best when he said, " I grew up loving the University of Michigan. I ' ve wanted to go to Michigan for as long as I can remember. I understood all of the cons to commuting before attending school here, but the pros far outweighed them. I think most students have hectic schedules at Michigan. It ' s just a mat ter of trying to manage your time the best you can. " -v r - SP ' " " .

For anyone who planned on returning to Ann Arbor the following year, late autumn marked the beginning of the housing hunt, a difficult process that could span weeks or even months in the quest to find a suitable living space for the next school year. " I used a combination of the Internet and the newspaper; the Internet was by far the best way, " said CaitlinFriedemann, a junior communications and Italian major. " It was stressful because there are many people looking for a limited number of houses. " Junior biology and music major Doug Sanders came across his future apartment in a more random way. " A friend and I just spotted what looked like a nice apartment on Hill near Packard, and checked it out, " he explained. " We then got information from the realtor and signed. " For sophomore communications major Eric Woekler, prospective housing had to meet several guidelines: cost, location and cleanliness. " Cost, because summer jobs don ' t exactly pay super unless you can find an awesome internship, but how often does that really happen? " he said. " Location, because I don ' t want to be living down by the stadium, and have to walk all the way to the Frieze Building for a film class. And cleanliness, because I am not one who likes to share his dwellings with things that have more than two legs, unless it ' s with man ' s best friend. " As for tips for future house hunters, the advice from Friedemann,Woelker and Sanders was unanimous: start early. " The most importantthing you must have when going to look at places to live with your friends is an open mind; a will to compromise, " explained Woelker. " If you can ' t agree, then you ' ll neverfind a good place to live, that you can all live with. " " Don ' t concede too early, " added Sanders. " Don ' t just get an ' okay ' place in October because you feel like nothing else will come up. Things usually wilL.unless it ' s March. " Searching for an affordable apart- ment, two students visit booths at the Housing Fair to find the perfect place for the 2002-2003 school year. A mul- titude of students attended the Fair, held in November at the Michigan League, because many prominent rental agencies advertised their hous- ing options at the gathering, phoio by Housing | 247 acting CRAFTY by Ha n-Ch i n g Lin 3 he MUG was just as crowded as the Undergradu- ate|Library on Tuesday nights, when both regulars and passersby noticed laughter filtering from the foodcourt. The fun atmosphere drew crowds to stop and engage in exciting crafts projects. " Artsbreak " was one of the weekly programs put on by the Michi- gan Union Programming Board, to provide students with a way to unwind and have fun during the week. For many, there was no better feeling than having programs like craft night, swing dancing, and karaoke to look forward to, especially during long and stress- ful weeks. Of students who attended, most found out about craft night from friends or saw it firsthand as they walked through the MUG. Oftentimes it had them hooked for the rest of the year. " I haven ' t missed a week this whole term, " Marie Quasius, an LSA sopho- more, said proudly. " My favorite part is making little presents for friends and family around the holidays; people really appreciate things that you make from the heart. " Each weekthe project was different, but the mate- rials were always provided. " Arts and crafts is a lot of fun because all of the activities are really interesting and creative, and the things we make are usually things I normally would never have thought of mak- ing, " said Avani Kothary, a pre-business sophomore. Some of the memorable projects in- cluded making grapevine wreaths, mittens, votive candleholders, and picture frames. " Even if I have meetings, or a test to study for, I always stop by because I love making things with my friend, " said Charlene Bugais, a nursing sophomore. " My favorite project is decorating picture frames, and magnetic frames. There are endless possibilities, and the best part is I can keep some and give away some, so you can never make too many frames. I have pretty frames from crafts night all over my room, on book shelves and the refrigerator. " Craft night was a stress relieverthat gave students a chance to spend time with friends, meet new people, and make gifts. Expressing her love for the program, Kothary said, " I hope they keep crafts night forever! " Reaching for craft supplies, a student decorates a record in the MUG of the Union at Craft Night.

Many of these students trudged eagerly down the streets of Ann Arbor, knocked on strange doors and quickly signed leases sometimes with little regard to the cost of rent. Other students balked at the cost of housing that was often upwards of $450 month. Still other students felt there was more to living than just getting a house. These students wanted a community. " I looked intoco-ops because people worktogetherthere, " said junior philosophy student Cathy Borregard. " I like the way the house members depend on each other and everyone is required to do work in order to stay in the house. Plus decisions are made democratically between everybody. We decide how the house will run and what we eat and who can have pets. " Baker was a member of the Michigan House. Located on North State Street, " Mich. House " was the oldest co-op in the Inter Cooperative Council (ICC). The ICC, or the student houses called co-ops, first started in 1 932 by students trying to afford college during the Depression. Co- operative houses were houses owned, not rented, by members of the co-op, so costs were lower because they were not paid to a landlord. Charges at Mich. House, for example, ranged from $350 to $370 per month. The University had one apartment house and eighteen group houses and the average house held about 30 people. Mich. House and its purple sister house, Minnie ' s House (named for Minnie Wallace who owned the house until 1 970 but sold it when she fell in love with a nudist taxi driver named Bill Bixby) together pro- vided room for 43 students. In Minnie ' s House and Mich House students were required to put four hours of work into the houses each week. They cooked, cleaned, maintained the property, and elected officers who democratically governed the co-op. When asked about the differences between the different co- ops on campus, Michigan House President said, " North Campus attracts a large graduate student population, and a sizable inter- national student population. Central Campus is a large, diverse crowd that is mostly undergraduate students. What brings us together is our dedication to creating the best living atmosphere possible. " Donning an apron, a student pre- pares a delicious meal in her co-op ' s kitchen. Students living in co-ops often had to take time out of thier busy schedules to do chores each week, such as cooking dinner for the whole house, phola hy Lauren fnm.r Housing | 251 - time .looks like to do LAUNDRY by Cortney Dueweke I ojjtiose living in the residence halls, washing clothes was a chore that was equally annoying to both laundry veterans and those who had never before touched a washing machine. " I lived on the third floor and the laundry room was in the basement, " said former Bursley resident Kate Queram,an English and communications sophomore. " The elevator was really ghetto, and took like 16 minutes to get down two floors, so you had to take the stairs. My laundry bag had a huge hole in it so I would inevitably end up spilling clothes everywhere in the stairwell and dropping detergent and all that stuff. " Queram was amused when she encountered students doing laundry for the first time. " The funniest thing was how you would see all these boys with written instructions from their moms, like step by step on how to do laundry, " she said. During his first year, sophomore ISA student Joseph Michalsen never did his own laundry; instead, he had it washed by a service. " Every Monday at 8, the guy came to the dorm to pick up my bag full of laundry, " he said. " All of it would come back folded neatly on Wednesday nights at 8. My parents signed me up for it because I had never done my laundry before, and they didn ' t want me to worry about it. " Without the assistance of the service as an East Quad resident his second year, " the biggest problem is not having to actually do it, " said Michalsen. " Rather, the biggest problems are the machines not taking Entree Plus on even days of odd weeks and odd days of even weeks, and also how multiple machines are usually broken. " Senior economics and communications majorTory DeLeeuw found it difficult to snag a dryer when she lived in the residence halls, so she did her laundry at 7 a.m. on weekdays. " Pick a time when people won ' t be there, " she advised. " Also, hang dry anything you don ' t want to shrink. " Queram had some advice of her own. " This is a big laundry secret, but you don ' t have to separate your clothes into whites and colors, " she suggested. " You just wash everything in cold, and it saves money. " Gathering his clothes, Psy- chology and Pre-Dental sophomore Brent Key utilizes the laundry facilities in his residence hall. Doing laundry was a tedious and annoying part of University life for new Students, photo by Kale Maher 252 | Laundry I I o y d 3rd Hinsdale- Front Row: Tzu Teng, Lauren Nielsen, Naomi Davis, Lindsay Harding, Tanya Chu, Oi Chung, Tricia Bass, Jordan St Charles Back Row: Kelly Moug, Kristin Newton, Tiffany Torres, Sabrina Van, Kristen Zaharski, Harlena Reed, Alanna Gentry, Krystal Baggs, Meredith Hasse, Steph anie Huang, photo by Kathrvn Torres 3rd Klein 1 - Front Row: Gregorius Poort, Alberto Serrj Zmyslowski Back Row: Brian Kallus, Jacek Zaloga.

Bad food, dirty bathrooms and noisy hallways were enough to make them want to move out as soon as their firstyear was over. However, there were also those who found certain aspects of dorm life were very special. " Couzens Hall has been my home for a year and a half now, and I h ave very warm thoughts each time I think of it, " said Vinchelle Evans, a sophomore in ISA. " My favorite part about living in Couzens is the many activities that go on every week, because I love bonding with my hall-mates. " Throughout the year, students received countless slips and flyers in their mailboxes about small events and programs, put on by the hall council or the resident advisors. Dorms often sponsored pizza parties in orderto help residents get to know each other. In addition, they had activities, such as Mary Kay facials in Alice Lloyd for a much-needed study break. In addition to the pizza, movie, and karaoke nights, special nights were devoted to learning about different cultures. Alefiyah Mesiwalah, a pre-med junior and a resident advisor inCouzens,describedaparticularevent that she enjoyed. " With everyone ' s emotions running high after the September 1 1th events, some of the RAs decided that we had to do something to educate our residents, because we feared that Muslim students in Couzens would feel threatened. " Couzens Hall, which housed a large number of minority students, was home to a large Muslim population. " We put on an event that educated people about the Islamic faith, feasting on delicious Middle- eastern food, and celebrating diversity. Being Muslim, it was very moving to see females, in particular, show their support by wearing the Islamic veil on their heads at the event. " Several events like these were put on throughout the year to create awareness of multicultural concerns and the issue of diversity. The programs also built community within the dorms, and allowed for hall-mates to spend some quality time together, without having to take more than a couple flights up the stairs to a lounge or living room. " One of my favorite activities was movie night, " Evans said, " It was so great to cuddle up with my neighbors, eat popcorn, and watch a scary movie together. We really felt like one big family. " In many ways, living together, eating, doing homework, and spending lots of time with hall-mates made the dorm like one gigantic family.

Dorm events fos- tered a sense of commu- nity among hall-mates. photo by Besty Foster Housing | 255 . . . i t ' s a long walk from HOME by Carly McEntee Eryone remembered those days when walking to was the last thing anyone wanted to do. This feeling was often intensified with cold winds and rain. It was a challenge leaving from the dorms that were close to classes, but it became even worse for the students who lived in one of those dormsfar away, such as Oxford or Fletcher. There were, however, some advantages to living in Oxford and Fletcher. The dorms had a different living environment than most of the dorms closer to Central Campus. There were no meal plans and the amount of students per house was much less. This allowed residents to make their own food and control their own diets. A much greater sense of community was created as people learned to share their living spaceand kitchen with twenty other people. Kinesiology sophomore Nicholas Meter said of the community of the far away dorms, " The dorms further from campus like Oxford and Fletcher have a very home- like atmosphere. Part of this is the lower occupancy per each house. " The downfall for these dorms remained the fact that they were so far away from life on campus. Going out on weekends was more of a challenge, since getting home on the weekends became much harder. Also, little trips to the store to pick up food or school supplies seemed more trouble than what it was worth. Meter, trying to explain why living so far away from campus was difficult, said ' The most funny story I can think of would be the one where all my friends become chaperones because I live in the boonies... actually its not a ' story ' in the literary sense, its more of a reoccurring theme. " Even though far-away dorms appeared to be a nuisance, they also ended up being a strong community where people really got to knoweach other. The friendships and homey feeling made the walks to class and cold nights seem worthwhile. Fletcher Hall, located near the IM building, housed 72 students, creating a unique community environment. The residence hall was a 10- minute walk from Central Campus, phitto by Ntcalf MuevJelen 256 | Far Away Dorms oxford and south quad I Oxford Geddes - Front Row: Sheetal Subnani, Dawn Zoch, Vanessa Galindo, Neel Williams, I Micheleen Hashikawa Back Row: David Duluk, Nicholas O ' Keefe, Abdul Yusof Khan, Jeffrey | Chang, Karl Ecklund. photo by Kale Maker South Quad: 2 Kelsey - Front Row: Warren Imker, Matthew Martin, Tyrone Kimbrough, Matthew Johnson Row 2: Onochie Anyanetu, Derek Young, John Glase, Varot Kamolchotiros, Joseph Hadeed, Christopher Yee, Dennis Blay, Alfred Davis 111 Back How: Christopher Judy, Bradley Chuminatto, Samer Youmans, Joseph Bertram, Abdurrahman Pasha, Michael Pappas, Austin Chapman, Nathaniel Topping, photo bv Li: Mauck South Quad 41-42 Hunt - Front Row: Erica Yim, Lynn Chau, Shivani Raval Row 2: Kelli Stein, South Quad 43-44 Hunt - Front Row: Ethan Miller, Kevin Czerney, Anthony Hsu, Ronald Rachael Walker, Lindsay Mielke, Rebecca Mau, Gwendolyn Zirngibl, Reena Agarwal, Sandra Del Edwards, Montrell Baker, Tyler Lieberman Back Row: Henry Beresford, Lucas Langstaff, Troy Colle, Ixtaccihuatl Menchaca Back Row: Kristin Carey, Manisha Ahluwalia, Roomila Mareeachalee, Sanchez, Benjamin Brand, Chien Wen Pang, Grant Ogbu, Chuwudum Okafor. photo by Jillian Bates, Allison Tsai, Laxmi Kambhampati, Soojung Chang, photo by Liz Mauck Kristen Stoner South Quad 66-67 Gomberg - Front Row: Michael Issa, Max Risch.

There was no better way to accumulate this dough than working in the dorms, the hub of life for many undergraduate students. It seemed there were many jobs to be undertaken in the dorms, from working in the convenient libraries to stacking the dirty dishes in the kitchen. The latter, though probably the most unappealing work, paid the best when it came to working in the dorms. When asked about working in the kitchen, theatre arts and psychology freshman Amita Madan said, " Its an easy job with great pay but not at all glamorous for an aspiring actress as myself would want. Bringing dishes back to the sink and washing them is beyond disgusting but then again you get used to it after a while. You just keep reminding yourself that you ' re making $8.20 an hour! " The pay alone for working in the kitchens was enough to bring ISA sophomoreLyniseCarrandherfriendstoAlice ' s Kitchen of Alice Lloyd Hall, " I ' m very good friends with some of the workers and they are all very nice and super friendly. I ' ve even recruited other girls that I know in my hall to work there also and they like it too it ' s extremely convenient wearing sweats and old comfortable clothes and going downstairs in my own dorm -no matter what the weather to make $8.20 an hour for an easy job. " Working in the dormitory cafeterias provided students with special access to the kitchen . " People waste so much food! If you ' re working in the dish room you get to see all the nasty things people do with their food. One thing is to pile thefood on and not eat any of it, but there are some who find it amusing to leave messages with the food or make a little something of their own! " Madan tells. Carr on the other hand stepped on all rumours that any of the cafeterias were dirty saying, " It ' s actually very clean and sanitary. " Miguel Guzman, an undeclared first year student who worked at the Alice Lloyd front desk explained that the running themes between the dorm workers was the fact that everyone could go straight from their rooms to their place of work without having to " brave the cold " and being able to help finance college tuition whilst being able to undertake an easy job.

McKinley street, on the south side of campus was popular among atheletes due to its prox- imity to the athletic complexes. photo by Betsey Johnson by Sarah Johnson ith the Diag resting in its center, Central campus was surrounded by student housing neighborhoods, each with a different appeal. Just south of campus, in an area commonly termed the " Student Ghetto " popular spots to live wereGreen- wood, Vaughn, Oakland and E. University. The attraction to this area was its close proximity to the popular bars Good Time Charlie ' s, Rick ' s, Mitch ' s, and Touchdowns. The drawback here, however, was its distance from buildings north of the Diag like the MLB and Angel Hall. " I live down on Michigan because that was where my friends live, " said Seniorcommunications student Bridgett Kennedy. " I probably should have lived North of campus because all my classes are in the Frieze Building, but that ' s not where my friends were looking. " Another popular southern neighborhood was close to the athletic facilities. Nestled next to the Intramural building, Sybil, Benjamin and Mary streets were also nearby Elbel Field, CanhamNata- torium, the Sports Coliseum and Michigan Sta- dium. While this area was long thought popular only for athletes, it drew a bigger student crowd, " Its cool living down there. You get to charge for parking at the football games, " said Senior psy- chology major Sara Fedewa. On the northern end of central campus, stu- dents found housing closerto classes on Jefferson, Hamilton, and Thompson. Other students drifted off toward Main street living on Division, 5th Ave, Packard or Liberty. Senior Biology major Courtney Russel lived on Liberty and 4th Ave, her junior year, " I love the atmosphere up here. It is much more Ann Arbor culture, and less the whole cam- pus scene. It reminded me that I live in a really cool city too, " Russel said. Similar perks were applied to living around the Washtenaw and S. University intersection. Senior communications and French major, and resident of Linden Street Whitney Downing said, " Advantages to living on the north side include a feeling of living independently from the campus scene and from the busyness of down- town Ann Arbor. Having a house on Linden is like living in the ' burbs because some neighbors are graduate students, younger families, and retired adults. Hearing kids play on the playground at Angel Elementary isanicecontrastto the bustling college campus.

Both the IM and CCRB offered similar exercise equip- ment, photo by Abhy Johnson _ mid the courseworkand social scene, stu- dents forced themselves to find time to make it to the gym. With recreational facilities on campus and membership a part of tuition, students typi- cally chose to work out at the NCRB on North Campus, the CCRB on Central Campus or the IM building on South Campus. Although all virtually offered the same machines and exercise opportu- nities, many students chose a facility with specific interests in mind. Senior English major Jake Rollow explained, " I work out at the IM because there are less people than attheCCRB and the weight rooms are nicer. " Preference of machines was a key factor in choosing the right facility for each student, Derek Arciniaga,a senior English major, said " For weights, I go to the CCRB because I like their benches better and the new ones at the IM are weird. For every- thing else, like cardio and stretching, the IM is better. " Nevertheless, with the CCRB and the IM occu- pying opposite ends of Central Campus, location played a large part in deciding which facility was most preferred. Caitlin Clipp, a senior psychology major, claimed, " I work out at both because it doesn ' t really make a difference to me, whichever facility I ' m closest to at the time I go to the gym. " And as Arciniaga further explained, " I also like the IM because it ' s closer to my house. " Walking dis- tance being one of the hardest things to over- come in dragging oneself to the gym, students seemed to have a particular opinion in which direction they traveled in to get the job done. While the IM attracted many University athletes, the CCRB attracted those students wanting to run on a track and not outside in the dark. And while the CCRB had longer operating hours and a larger overall facility, the IM was best liked for its clean- liness and less populated environment. In the end, it appeared that students preferred to simply get away from homework and get some quality exer- cise, whether that meant the gym of their choice or that which was most convenient. Housing | 263 i t ' s time for cleaning in dorm BATHROOMS by Cortney Dueweke fill the aspects that divided dorm life from living in fampus housing, the subject of residence hall bath- rooms was one that most students had opinions on. With the majority of dorm bathrooms being commu- nal, students living in residence halls enjoyed the unique benefit of not having to clean the bathroom or be responsible for its care. On the other hand, sharing a bathroom with an entire floor of fellow hallmates some- times led to many unclaimed messes that could fester for days. For some students, not having to clean the bathroom was not worth the sometimes-unpleasant conditions. Former East Quad resident Rebecca DeLancey, a senior communications major, called the bathrooms there " yucky " and said she preferred the bathroom in her apartment to the ones she used in the residence hall. Besides being disgusting, DeLancey disliked the " scary " male janitors that were employed to clean the girls ' bathrooms. " The janitors were the men that I would least want to have a key to the bathrooms, " she shud- dered. Senior communications major and former South Quad resident Sara Wojdacki, however, disagreed. Al- though she said there was the " occasional late-night vomit and abundance of hair-clogged drains, " overall she felt the South Quad bathrooms were " not bad " for residence hall facilities. " Communal bathrooms didn ' t really bother me, " she said. " Our room was only two doors down, so that was a plus. " Unlike DeLancey and Wojdacki, School of Education junior Cathy Casazza was in a unique situation. Casazza lived in the Cambridge House section of West Quad, and therefore had her own bathroom. As for whether the task of cleaning the bathroom was worth the privacy, she said, " I don ' t mind. It ' s just me, so I don ' t make much of a mess. " Casazza also previously lived in Mosher-Jordan and in the non-Cambridge part of West Quad. Although she said the Mosher-Jordan bathrooms were " decent " and cleaned everyday, she was disgusted at the condition of the West Quad bathrooms. " They were cleaned only twice a week, and ' spot checked ' the other days, but I don ' t think they were, " she said. " When you have a bunch of girls and no one cleaning the bathrooms, things get nasty pretty fast. " Wearing her bathrobe, first year history major Marga- ret Prest walks from her dorm room to the showers down the hall. Communal bathrooms were a big ad- justment for most students entering the University. phoio by Kale Mtiher . 264 I Dorm Bathrooms markley and east quad Markley: 5th Blagdon - Front Row: Keith Louie, Gregory Boothroyd, David Fox, Adam Rothman, Scott Mendy Row 2: William Opdyke, Collin Coughlin, Matthew Smith, Geoffrey Lehv, Jeffrey Wheeler Row 3: Eric Grezlik, David Silverman, Brandon Swibel, Stewart Gold, Bryan MacKenzie, Bradley Foxman, Bradley Reames, Michael Carpenter Back Row: Steven Jaffe, Jeffrey Kennedy, Jason Kleinman, Karl Eggers, Daniel Shuster, Andrew Yeung, David Rubin, Mikel Canete, Jeffrey Moulton, Michael Rappaport, Peter Vangelderen, Jeffrey Spearin, Michael Jarnagin.

There were many reasons for students to turn to the alternative lifestyle, only one of them being health related. " Living vegetarian is a very nutritious choice. There is really no reason to eat meat when we can sustain ourselves on healthier, tastier alternatives. People tend to think that you loose many food options when you become a vegetarian, but I think I actually eat a wider variety of foods now. I stopped eating meat a few years ago and haven ' t even thought of eating any since, " com- mented junior graphic deign major Heather Campbell. A common misapprehension was that being a veg- etarian made a person lack many necessary nutrients, including protein and iron. Beth Christensen, a sopho- more SNRE student, pointed out, " I think that this miscon- ception is a struggle that many vegetarians have to face when talking to others. This university, however, offers some alleviation to that problem. Many students here are vegetarians, and the dorms, particularly East Quad, help out a lot. Vegetarian co-ops also provide a lot of relief and assistance. It is nice to have a support group of like- minded people, especially in a vegetarian co-op like the one I live in. The food is phenomenal, and we have some really talented cooks. " Cutting meat out of a diet did not necessarily cut the options for many tasty, diverse meals. As many vegetar- ians could vouch for, the choices in a world of meals excluding meat were not only welcome but endless. Reaching for a carrot, a student looks over the organic food section of People ' s Food Co-op.

After four months of delays and hardships, the tenants of 523 Mack Street finally moved into their house, photo by Abby Johnson NIGHTMARE by Cortney Dueweke fie majority of the houses near the University were slightly run-down and in desperate need of a good paint job. But as students Aaron Saito, Rob McClary, Dan Hail ington, Allen Pearce, Zach Abrams, Simon Lee and Pete Gilmartin discovered, some campus houses needed more than just a few small repairs. Their nightmare started in November 2000, when they found a house on Mack Street. ' The house had just been bought by a new landowner working in conjunc- tion with Oppenheimer Reality, " said Saito, a senior economics major. ' The only reason the house was still available was because it was disgusting inside and out. It was painted yellow on the outside, and smelled like urine on the inside. To top it off, bums were living in the house. But we put faith in Oppenheimer since they said they would start remodeling the house in March, and in the lease that we signed they said they would install new carpets, kitchen, bathrooms, walls, decks and more. " But by the time school let out in April, Saito said, the renovations had not started. When the seven housemates returned to campus in the fall, they discov- ered that the repairs still were not complete. With their move-in date delayed, they were forced to stay temporarily with friends. " On [September] 8, we finally moved in to a half-completed house, " recalled McClary, a senior English major, who noted that carpet, a bathroom, the stove and multiple electrical outlets remained unfinished. " Then, on the morning of Septem- ber 1 1, we were awakened by city inspectors scurrying through the house clip- boards in hand. They barged into bedrooms, loudly informing us we had until 5 p.m. to vacate the house due to our landlord spending an entire summer renovat- ing the house without any permits whatsoever. That night, we moved in to the Holiday Inn on North Campus where we remained for nearly seven weeks until the house finally passed inspection. " Moving back in was not the end of the boys ' housing problems. Saito said that workers continued to make repairs and repeatedly woke the tenants in early morning hours. Thankfully, the house passed final inspection on December 21, Saito said. The boys undoubtedly walked away from the situation as wiser tenants for the future. " For anyone that is renting a house being renovated over the summer, they should obtain a signed contract binding the landlord owner to a committed move-in date, etc., " said Lee, an economics senior. Saito added, " Renter beware is all I can say. " Housing | 269 ace to call HOME by Ca rly McE ntee hi Martha Cook Building provided a comfortable livingenvironmentaway from homefor approx imately 140 female University students. Martha Cook opened for the first time in September 1915 after being do- nated by William Cook in memory of his mother. The building remained a place of great traditions and of- fered students a more intimate living environment. A well-known tradition of Martha Cook was Friday Tea. This weekly tea was open to residents and stu- dents of the U niversity. LSA sophomore and Vice Presi- dent of Martha Cook House Board, Ashley Erdmann said of the Friday teas, " Our weekly teas may sound silly to some, but they ' re very good opportunities at the end of each week to catch up with friends and socialize before the weekend starts... plus a chance to eat good food. " The residence of Martha Cook participated in even more traditions. In the first week of December, Martha Cook had a formal dinner for the University Musical Society Messiah performers. Another important event revolved around thecelebration of Martha Cook ' s birth- day. Other traditions included special ethnic dinners, for new residents and graduating residents, dinners for the faculty and holiday celebrations. Waitresses also provided the residents with three sit down din- ners a week. Martha Cook provided students with a comfortable atmosphere that was quiet and friendly. It helped to createan environment conducive toacademicachieve- ment where the girls felt comfortable and at home. Many residents enjoyed the Red Room and Gold Room lounges where they studied or just socialized with other residents.

The recruitment experience was much differ- ent than in years before, with an early start and a postponement due to the events of Septem- ber 11. Through hard work, friendly competition and a lot of fun we raised tens of thousands of dol- lars for charity. The sorority women were given an opportu- nity to battle for the honor of playing in Mud Bowl when Sigma Alpha Epsilon hosted a flag football tournament where the finalists played on Homecoming day. We recognized Mary Beth Seiler and her years of dedication to the Greek System as the Di- rector of Greek Life at the University. The Office of Greek Life welcomed the Multicultural Greek Council in its efforts to constantly evolve to meet the needs of stu- dents. " Going Greek " gave us the opportunity to meet some of our best friends, to form our own niches on campus, and to give back to both the Ann Arbor and Greek communities. 272| Greek Life During the oatmeal eating race, a blindfolded member of Delta Phi Epsilon feeds another member of team three at Greek Week Hill Street Days.

In addition to regulating social functions and making hazing policies, the IFC also provided pro- gramming on important issues such as sexual assault. They also brought alumni and University administrators together to proactively talk about issues concerning the fraternities on campus. The IFC pro- vided National Organizations with the op- portunity toexpandtothe University ' s cam- pus and start successful chapters. Finally, the IFC coordinated fraternity rush in the fall and winter. The IFC ' s power extended far beyond just making the Greek image better. One of the IFC ' s main powers was the regulation of inappropriate actions by fraternities. " You have to be consistently doing things wrong to get kicked off campus. There is no formula to it. It is usually pretty clear-cut whether a chapter is a benefit or a detri- ment to the system, " said IFC President Marc Hustvedt. If a fraternity committed an inappropriate action then the social viola- tion was reported to the Social Responsi- bility Committee before going to theGreek Activity Review Panel for a ruling. Hazing violations went to the Hazing Task Force to be investigated before going to the GARP for a ruling. Any community issue, whether it was a Greek community, University com- munity or Ann Arbor community issue, was handled by the IFC Executive Board. Yet, there were challenges within the IFC this year. The IFC contained many dif- ferent committees and individuals, which created the challenge of getting everyone on the same page about what rules should be implemented and which policies were the correct ones to be followed. Another challenge came from fraternity chapters that challenged the IFC ' s policies and al- ways appealed their social violations. To combat those challenges the IFC worked on making the social policies safer and the hazing policies clearer, which madeit easier to hold chapters accountable for their ac- tions. The Executive Board and Legislative Bodies looked to make the Greek commu- nity a better place. " I love being on IFC. The best part of the position is working in an environment with a group of guys that really care about the Greek System and put everything they have into making it the best it can be, " said Vanek.

The Panhellenic Association paired up with the Interfraternity Council to host Greek Diag Day on September 5. By invad- ing the Diag, Panhel was able to spread the word about fall Rush and Greek life in gen- eral. From there, interested women at- tended Panhel ' s mass meeting. The mutual selection process was orga- nized into four sets of parties: mixers, sec- ond sets, third sets, and preference parties. During mixers, potential members were escorted to each chapter ' s house by a Rho Chi, a sorority member chosen by Panhel to guide potential members through their introduction to Greek life. Second sets were focused around phi- lanthropy, with potential members partici- pating in activities for each chapter ' s char- ity. Potential members wrote letters to chil- dren and painted murals to donate to hos- pitals.Theactivities showed potential mem- bers the importance the Greek system placed on community service. During third sets, potential members got to more fully know the chapters they were most interested in, spending more time at those houses and learning what it was like to live in a sorority house. Aftereach set of parties, potential mem- bers returned to the Union to narrow down their choices, casting votes that Panhel then paired with interested sorority chapters. Finally, potential sorority members learned the meaning of sisterhood during preference parties, making final choices. On Bid Day, potential members who re- ceived bids from one of their top three choices became sorority pledges, begin- ning a whole new aspect of their Greek life. by Caelan Jordan 278 | Sorority Rush As her Rush group awaits entry into Pi Beta Phi sorority house at 836Tappan Street, RhoChi Robvn Zamora, a senior communication studies major, checks the order of potential members against her list.

This prompted the University ' s Interfraternity Council to post- pone the start of the recruitment season as a gesture of concern for victims and for potential new fraternity members who opted to travel home in light of the attacks. When Rush finally kicked off, male un- dergraduates in search of a fraternity to call home first went to IFC ' s mass meeting, where they were introduced to different campus chapters. In the week after the initial mass meeting, potential new mem- bers ventured outto fraternity open houses; each chapter hosted an open house on one of three nights that week. Theopen houses allowed the potential member to become familiar with many chapters in a short amount of time, allowing him to begin to narrow his search for a house. After the nights of attending open houses, potential members were wel- comed at i ndividual fraternity events, where they were able to express interest in the houses they chose to focus on. Events included barbeques, bowling outings, Monday Night Football screenings, and poker games; Delta Kappa Epsilon frater- nity showed the movie " The Ladies Man. " This year, because of the terrorist attacks, many fraternities pushed back their indi- vidual events, giving potential new mem- bers even more time to shop for a house suited for them. Fraternities then began extending bids; potential new members did not have to accept a bid immediately, but could not accept more than one bid. During the Rush process, potential fra- ternity members were encouraged to ask questions about the values, service, and commitmentsof each chapter.

Held the morning of the Homecoming football game against Purdue on October 1 3, Mudbowl was a mud- slinging pre-football tradition as well as a char- ity event. The event benefited the University ' s Motts Children ' s Hospital. For every $100 do- nation, local and corporate businesses re- ceived free advertising in the form of a spot on the Mudbowl T-shirt and a banner that hung from the SAE fraternity house. The gruesome tackle football raised thousands of dollars to help the children of the hospital. " We were very proud of how much money was raised for the hospital. Above all of the fun, it is the charity that really matters and that is at the core of Mudbowl, " said senior communica- tion studies major and SAE member Dan Hiramanak. The event attracted about 1,000 specta- tors from the University and the community. The " playing field " SAE ' s extra lot next to its house was dug out and watered by the Ann Arbor Fire Department the night before to ensure maximum muddiness. Mudbowl was such a time-honored tradition at the Univer- sity that an enlarged panoramic picture of the event was hung in Schembechler Hall, the University ' s football hall of fame. In addition, Sports Illustrated magazine named Mudbowl the second most intense and entertaining event on college campuses. " It is just so awe- some to witness a college tradition like Mudbowl each year. SAE really makes it a great and exciting eventto watch, " said sopho- more biology major Dustin King. In the past, sororities bribed the men of SAE in an attempt to participate in the cov- eted Mudbowl. To prevent any scandals, SAE changed its selection process. Any sorority that donated $200 towards Motts Children ' s Hospital was automatically entered in a flag football tournament. The finalists of the tour- nament won the honor of battling it out dur- ing halftime of the SAE-Sigma Chi game. After 3 rounds of play. Delta Delta Delta and Delta Gamma faced each other. By Jennifer Lee and Jayme Love Greek Life I 283 example Leaders within the University community, the officers of the Panhellenic Association spent the year working with individual so- rority chapters, the Greeksystem, and cam- pus life as a whole. The association was the umbrella organization for sixteen national Panhellenic sororities on campus. Panhel kicked off the year by organizing fall sorority Rush, a mutual selection pro- cess that paired potential sorority mem- bers with chapters. Rush activities were further complicated by the events of Sep- tember 1 1 , forcing Panhel to push back the start of Rush. In October, Panhel officers participated in the Greek Summit, meeting with students, alumni, and national offic- ers to reflect on the past and set goals for the future of Greek life on campus. The ten officers from different sororities came together, building friendships as they worked to promote Greek life. " I have had the opportunity to collabo- rate with nine outstanding women throughout this past year. We workto drive change within our community and con- tinue to build a solid foundation for our chapters, " said Anne Aufhammer, a senior organizational studies major in Delta Delta Delta sorority. " Being a leader in a commu- nity that continuously battles negative press and stereotypes is a challenge. How- ever, these challenges are what motivate me to be a leader in the Greek community. " As representatives of the Greek system, Panhel members led by example. Working with individual sororities as well as the In- terfraternity Council, the Multicultural Greek Council and the National Pan-Hel- lenic Conference, the Panhellenic Associa- tion strived to improve Greek life and the campuscommunityasa whole.

The chapter ag- gressively participated in the fraternity league of intramural sports, taking top hon- ors at the wrestling match and placing sec- ond in both flag football and soccer. Throughout the year, the chapter main- tained a ranking in the top three of fraterni- ties across all IM sports. The chapter ' s house, at 806 Hill Street, was home to more than twenty members. Social events included Casino Nights and pre-game football parties.

The fraternity based itself out of a sprawl- ing houseat 1 501 Washtenaw Avenue. With a live-in capacity of sixty members, the house was a symbol of the support system thefraternity maintained for members. For example, the house held a scholarshipstudy room with archived notes for various classes, showing how fraternity members nourished each other ' s educational expe- riences. Additionally, the national chapter of Pi Kappa Alpha offered scholarship op- portunities to brothers. In the fall, Pi Kappa Alpha recruited new membersthrough IFC ' s informal Rush, host- ing open housesand pokernightstogetto know potential members and acquaint them with Greek life and Pi Kappa Alpha. Pi Kappa Alpha brothers affirmed their dedication to service, an aspect of the fra- ternity that helped members strive for in- tegrity.

For Greek Week in March, Pi Kappa Alpha was paired with Delta Delta Delta sorority, forming Team 6 for the week of friendly competi- tion in the name of charity.

Open the doors and walk inside, however, and Alpha Gamma Delta was truly a unique house on Hill Street. The house, although absolutely huge in stature, inside seemed close-knit and unif ied. This was due largely to the fact that the U M chapter was restarted at the beginning of the Fall 2000 semester, and resulting from that came a sorority that was truly one of a kind, with only 45 members. " I really like being in this house because it is so small. You know everyone by name, and know details about them, like their hometown and major. Because we are restarting AGO, we get an opportunity to make new traditions and take on leadership roles at a younger age, as compared to those that are in big houses, " expressed sophomore bio-medical engineer Katie Herta.

Among the oldest sorority houses on campus, KKG housed sixty in- house sisters but was home to 1 20 girls at the University including forty new mem- bers. ' This past year has been a huge success for KKG, " said Sorority President and Junior Communication Studies student Stacey Hall. " Kappa Klassic, our annual golf tour- nament raised over $3,000 for breast can- cer and local charities. Also we were IM Flag Football runner ups- we lost 0-49, we were thrilled to be there! " Kappas on campus also exercised their community spirit at the Dance Marathon event where they hosted a booth for mak- ing " goodie bags. " There, sisters in KKG and participants of Dance Marathon filled bags of essentials to be donated to patrons of a soup kitchen in Chicago. As a result, over 1 00 bags containing toothbrushes, bars of soap, towels, and cough drops were do- nated. For many campus Kappas, however, the best part of being in the house was found outside of charity events. Sophomore Max Bonbreast said, " It ' s just nice getting up and talking about your weekend over brunch with your friends. Almost everyone has a story and the food is really good.

The money was split among multiple charities, including Camp Heartland, and the Brittle Bone Foundation. What is more, they did it by jumping in huge vats of Jell-0, spelling out Greek Week with their bodies, singing and dancing. " Being Greek means making an impact on campus and promoting our chapter and com- munity as a whole through leading by ex- ample, " said senior economics major Jim Vanek. Each yeartheweekof competition is kicked off by the Journey of Hope, a program put on by the founder of Camp Heartland, Neil Willenson, and some of the children who at- tend the camp. The focus of the program was to educate people about living and dealing with AIDS. All of the campers in the program were children who have been diagnosed with AIDS or have a family member suffering from the disease. Audience members participated in gamesandquizzesand were awarded prizes for correctly answering questions about AIDS. The camp was the main charity of Greek Week for the past several years. " It ' s a time when Greek members do so much for the greater community, raising money, donating food, clothing, and more, " commented senior Charles Cohen. ' The com- munity is shown at its best, despite the stereo- types and condemnation, working together and putting all of the bad things behind, to do so much good. " The group of student who were respon- sible for coordinating all of the events for Greek Week, Greek Week Steering Commit- tee, consisted of 28 members from different chapters across campus. The group worked together for the better part of the year to ensure that the week went smoothly. A draw for many of the Steering Committee mem- bers was the opportunity to get to meet so many people from across campus. " It was an opportunity to be a part of one of the most powerful contributions that Greeks make each year. To give of yourself is com- mon in your own chapter, but to give of your- self as a community member is inspirational. I just really wanted to make the best effort possible to helptheGreekSystem raise money and have fun, " stated Vanek.

Chi Omega held its spring formal at the Rooster Tail. photo courtesy of Chi Omega dancing One of the most anticipated social events for fra- ternities and sororities at The University was formal. Whether in the winter, spring, or both seasons, formals allowed Greek members to relive their days of high school proms, without the cheesy pre-prom pictures. Planning a formal not an easy task. With Detroit and Windsor only an hour away, social chairmen were provided with many venue possibilities. Locations included hotels, restaurants, and banquet halls. Courtney Friedman, co-Social Chairman of the Alpha Epsilon Phi sorority said, " every year, we have our formal at the Windsor Hilton. It ' s the perfect location because not only do we rent out a beautiful hall overlooking the Detroit River, but the rooms are so nice, and the casino is down the street. " It was not often, in the casual atmosphere of The University, that students could get dressed in elegant eveningwear. The dress code for formals was not black tie, but Greek members used formal as an ex- cuse to get dressed in their fanciest apparel. Women wearing dresses of nearly every color, style, and length danced the night away with their dates who sported tailored, pressed suites, as photographers attempted to capture the moment on film. Formal was also another reason for out-of-town guests to visit. People with significant others from out-of-state had their visitors bookflights in advance. Furthermore, because the date of formal was an- nounced two months prior to the event, members rented hotel roomsattheformalvenueforthe perfect romantic getaway. Whether attending formal with that special some- one or with a close friend, formal was a great opportu- nity to get away from Ann Arbor for a night.

They prided themselves on becom- ing involved on campus and in the com- munity. Delta Gamma ' s main philan- thropy event concerned Service for Sight. This meant getting involved in activities that help people deal with disabilities. Some of these activities included making touch books for visually disabled chil- dren, being greeters at Kellog Eye Center and reading to the build. The sorority also created a puppet show called " Kids on the Block " which went around to different elementary schools around the area and taught children about disabilities. The sorority worked hard to uphold their ideals. ISA senior Anne Trotter said of being a part of the sorority, " It does not meanthatyouareautomaticbestfriends with the rest of the girls in your house, but it allows you to be in an organization where you know that you were chosen because you uphold certain ideals and characteristics that are highly regarded by the rest of the members. " Two important events for Delta Gamma were AnchorSlam and AnchorSplash. AnchorSlam took place during October with about 15 other so- rorities and fraternities getting involved. It consisted of a basketball Shootout in teams of two where prizes could be won such as a trip to Cancun and Acapulco, a ski weekend trip, a snowboard, or smaller prizes. AnchorSplash took place during Greek Week at the IM building pool. Delta Gamma alsogot involved around campus with members participating in such events as Dance Marathon, Student Alumni Council and Panhellanic associa- tion. They also got involved with other Greek philanthropies such as Lambda Chi Alpha ' s watermelon bust. They won Sigma Chi ' s Derby Days and Alpha Chi Omega and Sigma Epsilon ' s Charity bowl. ISA senior Diane Chen said of Delta Gamma ' s involvement, " Delta Gamma prides itself with not only having great participation and leadership within the sorority, but also in the entire campus.

Pi Phi showed enthusiasm for things other than rush, taking their energy to intramural sports.The women had teams for practically ever sport offered, the most popular being soccer, flag football, bas- ketball, broom ball, softball and track and field. As intramural champions for the last three years, the women worked to maintain their champion title as best they could. While intramural sports took a great deal of focus and energy, the women still made time for philanthropy and commu- nity service, with the Jello Jump during Greek Week, volunteering at an underpriveleged children ' s home and participating in Motor Meals. The social calendar was always filled with date par- ties such as formal, semi-formal, the ever popular Barn Dance and the Michigan vs. Michigan State Hockey Game. Being a member of Pi Beta Phi was more than just philanthropy and formals. Many of the girls reiterated the senti- ments expressed by junior business school student Kim Schreiver when she said, " Being a part of this organization opens up so many doors to opportunities available after graduation with a great alumni network, and all the girls I ' ve met have been my support system all along the way.

" It is nice to say that I have sisters from all over the United States who can share with me their different cultures and customs. " Another one of the benefits women Chi Omega reaped was the opportunity to be- come more involved on campus. Senior Erika Ebel said " Chi Omega provided me with leadership opportunities within my house as well as the Greek system in gen- eral, such as being a member of the Greek Week Steering Committee for two years.

As the Director of Greek Life, Seller found herself con- fronting a wide variety of issues ranging from hazing to motivating chapter members. She spent late nights in the Office of Greek Life during sorority rush and at- tended both Inter-FraternalCouncil (IFC) Meetingsand Panhelenic meetings each week. " I never quite know what my day is going to be like.There are always things popping up throughout my day that need to be dealt with immediately, " stated Seller. " My job is never bor- ing, and it is always challenging. " The vast majority of Seiler ' s job revolved around working with and advising students. As the Director of Greek Life, Seller worked closely with members of the PanhellenicCouncil, the Inter-Fraternity Council as well as the Greek Week Steering Committee. Seller strongly believed that it was vital for her to allow students to make their own decisions. " No one learns anything if I am ' directing ' them. More than anything, the experi- ence of being in the Greek System should be one that teaches people about themselves and being leaders, " said Seller. Former IFC president and Greek Week Steering Com- mittee member Charles Cohen commented " Mary Beth is a truly wonderful person who does so much behind the scenes work because she genuinely cares about the Greek System. We are so lucky to have her support- ing us. " Other students who worked with Seller over the years shared Cohen ' s sentiments. In fact. Seller kept in contact with former Greek leaders from as far back as 1980. Throughout her time working with the University ' s Greek System, Seller has kept her focus on ensuring that the system was constantly evolving to fit the student ' s needs. " I really feel that there will always be a desire for people to join the Greek System. We just need to make sure that the system is always striving to adjust itself to fit those needs, " explained Seiler. by Jayme Love 310 | Mary Beth Seiler Meeting with former IFC Presi- dents Marc Hustvedt and Cory Fernandez, Mary Beth Seiler of- fers advice.

At that time, the founding mem- bers - nine women from diverse backgrounds, cultures and religions - felt that the Greek sys- tem on campus, while a positive entity, was lacking something. These women wanted a sorority that focused on individuality and em- braced differences. They wanted more unity and diversity, a " true sisterhood. " In 1 990, the first chapter of Zeta Sigma Chi was founded at the University of Northern Illi- nois. This multicultural sorority ' s focus was to unify women of different cultures, ethnicities, religions and backgrounds while also focusing in academic achievement and community ser- vice. After much hard work and determination, the nine founding members of the University chapter reached colony status as the Epsilon chapterof Zeta Sigma Chi in Novemberof 1 999, making them the first multicultural sorority in University history. Not only are the women of Zeta Sigma Chi proud of their heritages and multicultural dis- tinctions, they were also dedicated to enrich- ing the lives of others through community ser- vice events. Some of these events had a second purpose of spreading the sorority ' s message of unity through diversity among campus. The women co-sponsored a cultural dinner with LambdaTheta Pi at which different entrees and desserts from a multitude of cultures were served. They also participated in the One Love step show, which also served to bring different multicultural Greek houses and organizations together. Zeta Sigma Chi also participated in the National Lupus Walk and the AIDS walk, n by Yvonne Humenay Zeta Sigma Chi - Front Row: Nicole Rappaport, jaclyn McAfee, Robin Bradley, Rebekah Blonshine Back Row: Regina Cox, Natalie Stegall, Shelly Anarado, Sangeetha Lakshminarayanan, Kelly Sappington photo by Tasin Akinmusunt . 31 2 I Zeta Sigma Chi Resting before the Lupus Walk, women of Zeta Sigma Chi gather together.

The sorority had about 60-75 active members, and 20-30 new members joined the house through fall rush, continuous open bidding and winter rush. The sorority took part in a philanthropy event at least once a month. Some of the events included Lambda Chi ' s annual Water- melon Bust and Sigma Alpha Epsilon ' s annual Mudbowl Tourna- ment. They began the semester by making picture framesfor kids at Camp Heartland. They also bought giftsfor a child that they adopted with Delta Gamma. Engineer senior Rebecca Meyers said of the importance of phi- lanthropy events, " I feel it is very important to sponsor and partici- pate in philanthropic events because everybody should know what it feels like to be a giver. There is no greater satisfaction than the feeling you obtain from helping someone else. Everyone should experience that feeling at least once in their lifetime. " Their annual philanthropy, the Chili Cook-Off, occurred on a football Saturday in October. The event took place on Elbel Field in order to allow the crowd walking to the football game to partici- pate. Other Greek houses entered their pots of chili, of which individuals then paid to have a taste. The proceeds of the event went to the Ann Arbor YMCA camps for girls and Camp Heartland. The sorority worked hard to create a sisterhood among its mem- bers. At the international Gamma Phi Beta convention they were awarded the E. Adeline Curtis award for outstanding sisterhood. " Our sisterhood is what makes Gamma Phi a group of close friends versus girls with similar interests, " LSA Rebecca Bell said of the sorority ' s sisterhood. " We try to carry out our sisterhood activi- ties from fun in-house events like scrapbook making parties, to out of house events like apple picking and ski weekends.

With literally hundreds of organizations on campus, it was difficult to find something that we did not draw our attention. We were greeted early in the year by Festifall, the time where all of the campus organiza- tions set up booths on the Diag, giving us the opportunity to find the groups that suited us best. Whether we were activists, budding politicians, dancers, philanthropists or writers, we found the group that changed our lives and inspired us at the University. Groups like the Ski Club and the Broomball Club gave us a chance to release energy, while K -Grams and The Detroit Project encouraged us to help others. Student Government allowed us to voice our opinions and make tangible changes in the way the University operated. The University offered us the opportunity to enrich our minds, but the organizations that gave us invaluable experiences and fostered leadership in us are what made our experi- ences memorable. 318| Organizations During Festifall, members of Can- terbury house and other student or- ganizations at- tempt to attract new members.

Selling classifieds, drawing advertisements and balancing the paper ' s budget, the busi- ness staff made payroll, road trips and high-quality printing possible. The editorial staff worked to put together what is read every morning. Designing pages, writing stories and taking pictures, staff members worked under daily deadlines to turn out the paper in a professional fashion. With the goalof maintaining the stature and credibility of anactual newspaper, staff members took their positions seriously. If a story broke, reporters interviewed. If an entertainment or cultural exhibit came to town, the arts section featuredartists and their presenta- tions. If there was a history-making athletic event, sports writers and photographers captured the moment. " I can ' t believe we actually get paid forthis because it doesn ' tfeel likeajob, " sports editor Joe Smith said. ' Traveling to nearly every Big Ten city and covering events like the Frozen Four while being the campus ' window to Michigan sports is priceless. " This past year, The Michigan Daily broke the story that former university president Bellinger would resign and take over the top spot at Columbia. As the first to report the news, the paper turned heads from academic institutions all over the nation. " It was on my cell phone that we actually got the key interview, " Smith said. " I was so proud of Rachel Green breaking (the story). " And when tragedy struck New York City, then-Editor-in-Chief Geoff Gagnon sent a team of news editors and photographers to Manhattan in order to document the disaster as it related to stu- dents. Love it or hate it, The Michigan Daily ' s staff works hard to bring professional journalism to the university community.

UAC consisted of an Executive Board and over 15 committees that kept some of the most popular student-run groups and organizations running smoothly. The largest student- run programming organization on campus, UAC worked hard to provide quality programming created by students that was both entertaining and enriching to the University community. From comedy and theatre troupes to various student publications, the organizations that benefited from UAC management certainly flourished. Total involvement in UAC-sponsored groups reached about 500, not includ- ing the rest of the University campus that attended the myriad of events held throughout the year. MUSKETand Rude Mechanicals proved their theatrical prowess as Amazin ' Blue celebrated its status as the most widely recognized a cappella group on campus in the Best of Collegiate A Cappella competitions. M-Agination Films andM-Flicksofferedcinematicentertainment,whilefrom a more cerebral perspective, Michigan Academic Com- petitions won the national collegiate competition the last two years. Other UAC organizations included Com- edy Company, Consider Magazine, Impact Dance The- ater, Big Ticket Productions, Michigan Every-Three- Weekly, Michigan Pops Orchestra, Mini-Courses, Speaker Initiative, and Special Events Committee. For senior economics and American culture major Pamela Inbasekaran, who served as Vice President of Programming, UAC provided an opportunity for herto see her work in action. " I had the opportunity to finally find a centralized, well-established organization that promoted all sorts of entertainment. With its dynamic structure, UAC continues to grow through its new membership and expansionary ideas, " she explained. " Moving into the future, I have no doubt that I can always come back to the University and see the legacy of wonderful UAC programs still available to entertain our campus community.

" We hope to improve the image that Kinesiology has among non-Kines students, to try and work against the ' jock ' image, " Jamie Gall said, " we hope to better Ann Arbor and the Univer- sity community through helping those we see are in need of help. " Last year, the Kinesiology student government ran a t-shirt selling campaign to raise money for the Red Cross following the events of September 1 1 and raised almost 3,000 dollars. The organization sponsored conferences within Kinesiology majors that related to professional topics, community service organizations and fundraising. With money raised from bake sales, the group gathered enough money to purchase gifts for graduating seniors. " I love the fact that Kinesiology is such a small division and that, in student government, we actually make a difference in the daily lives of fellow students whether they know it or not, " Gall said.

Balancing a strong motivation for musical excellence with the pressure of other classes and commitments, Club members rehearsed long hours to reach their peak performance. Junior voice performance and political science major Josh BreitzerfoundtheGleeClubtobea welcome change from the dailygrind. He said, " Glee Club fills in all the blanks of the consummate collegiate experience that mere classes cannot touch. It provides friends, traditions, a place of belonging, abundant social opportunities every week at Cottage Inn, strong ties to the athletic program, and most importantly, the chance to contribute to something larger than yourself and hear the results. " Conducted by Dr. Jerry Blackstone, the Men ' s Glee Club performed two major concertsinthefallandspringinHillAuditorium,aswellasajoint concert in October with the Women ' s Glee Club and Smith College Glee Club, and a performance at the University Collage Concert in January.

" By donating so much of their time to these ambitions, the Men ' s Glee Club never failed to reach them. Canady was also careful to note another vital explanation for the Club ' s prolonged success: " Dr. B. rocks. " 325 I Organizations leaving a legacy by Lauren Rutledge At first glance, one might have wondered why there was a Student Alumni Council on campus. While the terms " student " and " alumni " together seem rather counterintuitive, the Council contributed a significant amount to the University community. Vice President Elise Freimuth, a sophomore film and English major, described the organi- zation as a vital link between present and past students. Sponsored by the University Alumni Association, the Student Alumni Council was " beneficial because it lets alumni know what is going on around campus and maintain a genuine connection to the University, " Freimuth said. While the Council spent much time informing alumni of campus events, it also made sure to be a part of the school atmosphere. The 40-member group contributed countless hours to alumni-related events such as Parents Weekend and the annual Homecoming fes- tivities, and sponsored Alumni Networks, an opportunity for students to forge valuable business relationships with university alumni. The Student Alumni Council also volunteered in a variety of community service venues such as Dance Marathon, Ronald McDonald House, and Mott Hospital. All this hard work was not without reward. The group ' s relationship with the alumni certainly paid off, as it was able to kick back and play IM sports, attend football games, and make weekend retreats to Michigania, a facility owned by the Alumni Association. Freimuth claimed that her involvement with the Student Alumni Council has provided her with powerful job connections and a great time. " The Council provided me with experience in putting on major events and has given me the opportunity to take on an executive position. The best part about being involved with SAC is the students I ' ve met and worked with, " she said. " I ' ve also gained more respect for what the alumni do for this university.

Back Row: Joshua Duchan, Noah Miller, Tobias Singer, Brian Netter, Eric Day, Michael Hondorp, David Reiser, Paul Wyatt photo by Abby Johnson As one of the University ' s finest a cappella groups, Amazin ' Blue certainly lived up to its reputation this year. The 13- member co-ed ensemble, one of the groups sponsored by UAC, performed primarily contemporary music for a wide array of campus audiences. Whether performing at univer- sity events such as Parents ' Weekend and Dance Marathon or at its own concert held each semester at the Michigan The- ater, Amazin ' Blue was sure to keep fans entertained. In addition to performances on campus, the group also trav- eled a significant amount to share its musical prowess. North- western University featured Amazin ' Blue at their " Best of the Midwest " invitational in the fall, and the group participated in the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella Quarterfinals at Penn State in February. Never passing up an opportunity for a tour, the ensemble also took a spring break trip to Boston, New York, and Philadelphia. But as is always the case, the glory of Amazin ' Blue required an immense amount of dedication and hard work. After rigorous auditions, members had to rehearse three nights per week. Their commitment to the University com- munity was also evident in their charitable contributions. In September, the group headlined a show called Arts in Action, which raised thousands of dollars for a September 11th relief fund. Evidence of some members ' dedication to group was not always readily apparent: as music director of Amazin ' Blue, senior and music education major Eric Day arranged much of the music that the group per- formed for a cappella performance. It was, however, one of his favorite parts of the experience. He reflected that " to hear my work come to life through these 1 3 people is truly special. I believe that unique and intimate friendships are developed through working so closely toward a common creative goal.

It was not an interesting group just because of skill level, members ranged in age as the club attracted faculty and staff members as well as graduate and undergraduate students. ' The club is much different from most clubs because it is very pure, " Zach Drennen said. " People come to our club for one reason, and that is because they love the game. This brings together peoplefrom all different skill levelsand backgrounds that without table tennis would have nothing in common. " Whether it was a round-robin gig at practice or a trip to the Davison Open tournament, the club saw competitive action all year round. Although club members needed to have been selected to represent the University on the team, every participant learned new techniques with each match. " A few of our better players are always willing to provide coaching to some inexperienced players, " Drennen said. A viable contender for the 2004 Olympics in Athens, Senior Ashu Jain has been a member of the club for the past four years, and, along with club president Brian Tsiu, they have passed on valuable skills. " The Wolverine Table Tennis Club allows me to continue practice and improve my game, " Tsiu said. " I was amazed by the e quipment and facilities the university provided and intrigued by the opportunities to compete in different com- petitions. " It may have been a pastime many club members grew to love in their basements while burning off energy, but table tennis is a more serious matter at the collegiate level. " Table tennis is a sport and is no exception from other sports, " Tsiu said. " Practice is the key to improve. As one of my favorite quotes says, ' your game is only as good as your practice.

" It is the greatest honor to be able to serve my country in the military, and ROTC allowed me to do that and still get a college education, " Autumn Wenglikowski said. " The three core values that all of us learn and live by are honor, courage and commitment. I think that all of these things can only make each of us better leaders, whether we ' re serving in the military or working in the civilian world. " Along with normal class schedules, ROTC students took a Naval Science class dealing with handling stress- ful situations, discussing ethics and encouraging initia- tive. Regular ethics lectures and morning physical train- ing sessions were scheduled throughout the year. After students completed their education, ROTC members owed the Navy at least four years of military service, more if one decided to work on a submarine or fly. Most students received a four-year scholarship cover- ing tuition, fees and books as well as awarding a monthly stipend. Others were called college pro- grammers, completing all obligations but without the scholarship. After each completed college year, students tooksometimeduring the summerto spend on board military ships learning what it is like for military personnel. By the end of a student ' s third year, he or she chose whether to board a submarine or an aircraft carrier. Some joined ROTC to help pay for college, some for patriotic reasons and others for the travel. ' The large scholarship was definitely a large incentive, but the opportunities the Navy offers, like traveling and leadership experience, are hard to match, " Wenglikowski said. " I mean, what other job lets you fly a jet off the deck of a ship in the middle of the ocean or drive a multi-billion dollar ship right out of college?

Through committees and bi-weekly meetings, UMEC fed off students ' needs and strives to enhance their experiences. Founded in 1927, the council existed to unify students and stu- dent groups on campus, as well as tending to concerns of that body. " Should the drinking fountain in the media union not work call us, " council president Bob Krentler said. " Want more food on north campus late at night? It ' s coming soon in the form of a cyber cafe, as well as 24 ' real food ' vending machines. Want more parking on north campus? So do we, but we have to be realistic. " In order to achieve this, UMEC received student fees and a per- annum disbursement from the office of the associate dean ' s to work in ways best suited for the college. Committees were allotted funds and appropriated the money as each deemed fit. UMEC officers and directors oversaw day-to-day operations of the council, but each committee was given the power to fully research and tend to its area. " As president, I encourage each officer, committee chair, and director to be the CEO of their organization, " Krentler said. " Meaning their support is there, but they are free to pursue their goals as their mind sees fit. This results in people feeling empowered, and I feel is a real strength of our group. " From open-to-the-public meetings, dean forums and presidents ' meeting of the college ' s societies, UMEC ' s executive board gathered derivin purpose by Kristen Fidh suggestions and disperses them to the committees. Last year, the council funded 37 societies on campus, distributing over $20,000 a year. The gathered suggestions motivated such committees working on Curriculum, Transportation Safety, Media Union, CAEN and Pierpont Commons to stretch beyond norms in aiding Engineering students. UMEC sponsored Springfest-theendoftheyearpartyon north campus and Engineering Service Day, organizes the winter engineering graduation, produces the engineering student cal- endar handbook and welcomes new students with the First Year Initiative. The FYI involves the most visible event of UMEC the charity rubber duck race where hundreds of rubber ducks were dumped into the Lurie Building reflecting pool. Money was raised from students purchasing ducks in the race, and then racing the ducks for prizes. Working closely with the MSA North Campus Affairs Commission, as well as other student governments on campus to tackle multi- dimensional problems such as transportation and bussing, UMEC was involved with the entire campus to make living and learning comfortable. " We can point students in academic stress towards the right avenues, and we can help to get a new society its necessary funding, " said Krentler. " We can help find office space for student groups, and, in the renovation, there will be a different fast food restaurant in Pierpont Commons.

" Our goal as a house is to provide a faith environment for guys coming from Christian backgrounds who seek the continua- tion of that life experience at college, " history senior and chapter President David Ordorica said. This environment was built through a combination of social activi- ties like intramural sports and sponsored events as well as volunteer work and participation with other groups on campus. Phi Alpha Kappa regularly hosted dances and social gatherings with other Christian groups on campus. The fraternity maintained at least one charity event per semester in which the members and pledges put aside a day for community service. Events included volunteering at the Ann Arbor Historical Museum and cleaning up yards for nearby residents. " Working with the community is a great way to take time away from school and focus on something else, " Ordorica said. " It ' s fun for us a great way to just hang out and get to know each other better. " Pledging at Phi Alpha Kappa was a year-long process where pledges were encouraged to live at the house but not required to. The fraternity hoped that pledgeship gave potential members a year ' s worth of activities and events that allowed them to gain an understanding of the traditions that best represented the frater- nity. The culmination of pledgeship was intiation and the annual football game between the pledge class and the active members. " We must beat the pledges, " said Ordorica, " But it ' s getting harder and harder each year. " Organizations | 337 humor runnin wil by Lauren Rutledge The Gargoyle, the official humor magazine of the University, proudly entered its 92nd year of publication. Staffers claimed that the Gargoyle was an older and thus more established part of the University community than most (but not all) of the asbestos in West Quad. The magazine was always a source of old-fashioned humor,exceptforaturbulenttime20yearsbefore,as Editor- in-Chief Steve Jarczak cringed to recap: " This magazine only published ' seri- ous ' articles then simply because it was the 1980s and nobody knew what they were doing! I mean, they elected Reagan! Twice! " The resourceful 1 5-member staff, which did not include the various stu- dents that distributed copies of the magazine all over campus, worked hard to produce two issues per semester. The satirical magazine, which included articles entitled " Luscious Blueberry Affirmation " and " Two Tickets for Attack of the Giant Octopus, Please, " wasdistributed on campusforfreeand provided a much-needed comic break to students whose noses were usually buried in textbooks. In addition to publishing the Gargoyle, members spent their free time writing an intricate how-to guide to sensual massage, making up crime notes for the Michigan Daily, and donating liberally to their favorite local foundations, " The Gargoyle Beer Fund " and " The White Castle Jar of Quarters, " stated Jarczak. A senior majoring in media fiction writing, Jarczak described the best part of being editor-in-chief for the Gargoyle. " I could lie to you and say that the best part of working for this magazine is ' gaining valuable publishing experience while writing and illustrating hilarious comedy material but that ' s just not true. The real advan- tage is the raw and unbridled power that Gargoyle grants to those willing to wield it. The student body is our collective puppet! You will do as we say! " Gargoyle Ignoring the Gargoyle staff meeting taking place in front of him, senior Matthew Dupuis stares longingly at his idol, Tyson Beckford.

The coed a capella group compiled their own arrangements, performed at charity events, and earned money from compact disc sales of their per- formances and all the while managed to stay in perfect rhythm. " Personally, I joined Gimble because they seemed to have a lot of fun and sang a variety of songs, rather than all of the same genre, " said Rackham student Craig McClure. " And now that I ' m in it, I know that we actually do have a lot of fun. " The musicians that made up the group concen- trated on drawing from a lot of sources and different musical genres in order to boost their performances. They hosted two concerts, one in December and one in April, as well as lending their talents to the Art Museum ' s First Thursday events. A highlight of their season was the Michigan A Capella Festival. Further exemplifying their dedication, the group also trav- eled to a festival in New York in December. " We ' re serious about producing quality music and sound, but we ' re also interested in having a good time and developing solid relationships outside of practice, " said senior sociology major Anne Tomlanovich, a fourth-year Gimble member. The close-knit nature of group members expressed itself in the warmth of their performances.

Golden Key existed to recognize and encourage scholastic achievement and excellence in all fields of study, to unite with faculty and administrators in developing and maintaining high standards of educa- tion, and to promote altruistic conduct through voluntary service. The University chapter was one of 300 in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa; it was honored as the " Most Improved Chapter " at the Golden Key Regional and International conventions. The advantages of membership to Golden Key seemed al- most endless: benefits included a notation of membership on members ' transcripts; access to scholarships in a wide variety of fields and to an extensive on-line career database featuring over 1 4,000 employers; and opportunities to network with the honor society ' s 500 corporate affiliates. President Stephanie Dionne said, " Involvement with Golden Key has really helped me to hone my skills as a leader, as well as meet and work with some incredible people. " Although community service was not required for mem- bership in Golden Key, it constituted a large part of the group ' s focus. Golden Key actively participated in the Kids Fair, Dance Marathon, Goodness Day, Make a Difference Day and AIDS Awareness Week. The group also held monthly meetings featuring various guest speakers. In their rare free time, members unwound at tailgates and dinners at Good Time Charley ' s.

For 30 hours, over 6,000 participants of Dance Marathon sang, danced and played to help benefit children of South- eastern Michigan. During the evening, participants met with the children who were most thankful for the program. They witnessed the results of how all their hard workfundraising and planning helped children regain motor skills through programs sponsored by Dance Marathon. " The night is a ton of fun, and all the hard work is definitely worth it when we get to interact with the children who have been helped, " psychology junior Purvi Ravani said. Funds directly benefited over 35 families and chil- dren who were in need of physical rehabilitation such as physical, occupational or speech therapy. Programs receiving fundsfrom Dance Marathon pro- moted social and emotional growth of the children, rather than focus on the confines of their disabilities. But all the fun was not reduced to just one night events throughout the year involved children and raised money. During Community Plunge, Dance Mara- thon participants dove into a pile of crayons, stickers and glue sticks while helping with art therapy pro- grams at C.S. Mott Children ' s Hospital. Fall field days involved children outdoors, and the pen-pal program assisted their writing skills while creating excitement for the 30-hour stint. Independently, college students and adult volun- teers also assisted with activities such as karate and horseback riding throughout the year. Children were at the heart of the program, and their enjoyment taught Dance Marathon participants more than they could ever teach in return.

This was a unique season for the 60-member ensemble, accompa- nied by piano performance senior Bonnie Wagner. In October, the group performed the Brahms Requiem in collaboration with the University of Michigan Men ' s Glee Club and the Smith College Glee Club. This was the first time in the history of the women ' s group that they sang with the University men. In December, the Women ' s Glee Club went on to debut " Assembly of Ladies: AMedieval Allegory, " written specificallyforthem by Professor Stephen Rush, a renowned composer from the Schools of Music and Dance. The Glee Club ' s work continued on after their December concert. Traditionally the club hosted and mentored 700 high school women from the state of Michigan on the annual Women ' s Vocal Arts Day. Furthermore the best experience for many members was the spring trip. Senior Maria Bider said her favorite memory from four years of participation in the Women ' s Glee Club was, " During the Europe trip in 2000, a group of us went to the top of the Eiffel Tower. They had to shut down the elevators because of a thunderstorm and we were trapped. To pass the time, we decided to sing. Everyone stopped and listened to us. " Creating similar memories in the spring of 2002, the Glee Club traveled to New York and Toronto to perform. The Glee Club employed a reputable and difficult repertoire, ranging from classical to modern music. Surprisingly, many of the women involved were non-music majors. Theresa Young, a sophomore majoring in English and psychology, said, ' The Women ' s Glee Club gives me an opportunity to feel a part of the campus. I love to sing, and here I have the chance to try new and exciting music. " Belting out a song, a women ' s glee club member performs at a concert.

Having gained five more members at the beginning of the year, the organization grew to 1 3 members.Though one of the smallest organizations on campus, Lambda Theta Alpha strived to make a difference in the Latino community on campus. Lambda Theta Alphas activities and events included participation in the 2000 and 2001 Kids Fairs, performances in the Latino Talent Show, and hosting a spring poetry reading to bring in members from the University community who might not have been familiar with the sorority. Lambda Theta Alpha also contributed to the commu- nity by organizing academic workshops, free movie screenings, and hosting speakers who addressed a variety of topics from HIV to cultural preservation. The sorority also teamed up with Lambda Theta Phi during the summer to host a college information session for youth in Detroit. Junior Cynthia Alvarez, a social anthropology and art history major, said that the best part of Lambda Theta Alpha was its cooperative spirit. She said, " We are a real family, something that a person needs when she comes to college-knowing that there are people who can step in and help you is really comforting. " While Alvarez acknowledged that there were pluses and minuses to a very small sorority, she said the bond between sisters was by far Lambda Theta Alphas greatest and most impor- tant benefit.

' The people, the music, the 4 hours a week when I don ' t have to think about the paper that ' s due in 2 days or the exam that I have tomorrow morning it ' s a wonderful 4 hours to sing, " Law student Katie Hecker said. The different talents of veteran and amateur singers allowed everyone to grow in their personal musical ex- pression. Arts Chorale ' s repertoire was known for its di- versity sincluding anything from spirituals to masses and folksongs to madrigals. A new set of music was prepared for a culminating performance at Hill Audito- rium. Members of Arts Chorale fondly recalled stories of backrubs, dances, pizza parties, publicity sprees, and raucous rehearsals.

MSA was the central student government for the University, representing all 38,000 students and consisting of a 50-member assembly of students. The Steering Committee, composed of the chairs from each of five internal committees and 1 3 issue commissions, did most of the work, while the rest of the assembly approved the Steering Committee ' s decisions. MSA allocated funds to all student groups and community service events. It also appointed students to University committees, worked on and initiated student projects on campus,and advocated student positionstotheUniversity administration. Matt Nolan served as MSA president, Jessica Cash served as Vice-President, JoshSamekservedasTreasurer,andJohnCarterservedastheStudentGeneral Counsel. For political science and economics majors, MSA provided job experi- ence at the same time that it gave students voices on campus. The assembly positions were determined in accordance with population. Representatives were elected from each school and college at the Univer- sity. MSA pushed University administration for improvements that might otherwise have been overlooked, such as improvements to the CCRB and campus sidewalks. Not only did the assembly toil for hours representing its students, it also participated in some fun activities. Senior Josh Samek, MSA Treasurer and political science major said, " MSA members are very connected and active through otherorganizationsoncampus.MSAdoes challenge other student governments in athletic events, and this year beat LSA-SG at football, and UMEC at bowling. " During its session, MSA tackled such issues as an Octoberfall break, more student groupfunding, longer CCRB hours, and reformation of the Statement of Student Rights and Responsibilities. Samek ' s favorite part of MSA was seeing its effects all over campus. " It ' s wonderful to see the wide variety of excellent programming that is possibleas a direct result of MSA funding. Whether it ' sa political speaker ora community service program, a film or a cultural show, the odds are pretty good that MSA has played a role in getting it done, " he said.

The group, which supported Kids Programs, participated in several activities like BookMARK and focused on local elementary school students. Run by the 60-member Smile Programming Council, K-Grams organized a variety of activities. Students in the BookMARK pro- gram traveled to elementary schools to read to children, and the K-Grams pen-pal program matched between approximately 1 000 University dorm residents with elementary school buddies in letter correspondance. In the midst of perpetual commotion, K-Grams also spon- sored its annual Kids Fair at Crisler Arena. The theme was " Smilin ' Around the World, " in which student groups set up different booths with games and activities to educate students about international and world-related topics. The Fair provided a wonderful opportunity for multi-cultural organizations to teach children about their backgrounds and heritages. For member Sara Grady, a sophomore film major, the Kids Fair was the best part of her K-Grams experience: " Seeing over 1 000 cute little kids between the ages of six and nine pouring into Chrisler really showed me how much I can make a differ- ence. K-Grams is just such a wonderful chance for the Univer- sity to expand beyond its geographical borders and to be a part of a larger community.

For a relatively small sorority of approximately twenty women, AKDP certainly went above and beyond the call of duty in their service commitment to the University community. Mem- ber Wendy Wong said, " We ' re not a big sorority but we do a lot, and that ' s one thing I ' m really proud of. " As part of the Multi- Cultural Greek system, the group took part in cultural shows such as Huaren and GenAPA, and contributed much time and effort to activities during APA Heritage Month. Having assumed breast cancer awareness as its nationwide philanthropic focus, the organization held an annual charity ball to benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation for breast cancer research. It also participated in workshops on self-defense, date rape, and domestic violence to educate not only the Asian Pacific American population on campus, but University women on the whole. Wong says that the best thing about Alpha Kappa Delta Phi was that it empowered APA women. " We encourage our members to go out and get involved with whatever sparks their interest, but they do get educated about APA issues, and take pride in their heritage and identity, " she said. by Lauren Rutledge Organizations | 351 ., Filipino- I Waiting for the Com- muter, a student sits in a flyer-covered bus stop.

Ensler herself started the V-Day cam- paign in 1998, and its mission spread to college campuses around the country. In its third year at the University, the V-Day College Cam- paign worked hard to make Valentine ' s Day dedicated to activism on behalf of violence against women. Over 50 Vagina Monologues cast members and many other behind- the-scene activists contributed to the campaign ' s success. Valentine ' s Day started in the Diag, which was decorated with tape reading " Rape Free Zone, " with a rally to energize both those involved and those passing by. All members of the University were invited to convene there and listen to public speakers and local poets, and campaign members handed out awareness ribbons. Following the rally, various members of student groups dedicated to women ' s issues held a forum in the Union to educate university students about preventative measures and resources pertaining to violence. Finally, the Vagina Monologues in Hill Auditorium served as the culmination of V-Day. The production featured 12 full monologues as well as several extra pieces. Also, for the first time, cast and crew used large screen projec- tions of video shot on campus to illustrate some of the scenes. In the lobby, campaign participants hung T-shirts illustrated by victims of sexual assault and auctioned a painting by artist Claudia Dionne. All proceeds were given to the selected charities, SAFE House and RAWA. The V-Day College Campaign provided an opportunity for stu- dents like senior microbiology major Stephanie Dionne, execu- tive producer of the project, to spark awareness for a major issue. " The response from other campus and community organizations that work with women ' s issues has been extraordinary, and we hope that this year ' s events will foster a new cohesiveness be- tween these groups. We are all working towards a common goal: equality for women and ending the violence perpetrated against them, " she affirmed.

Smoking was one of the issues the Residence Halls Association took on last year, offer- ing students more choices. For those who lived in residence halls, the home-away- from-home was not always to the comfort level of preference. While the University ' s Residence Halls Association could not fix roommate squabbles or the closet piled full of laundry, RHA strove to make dorm life as cozy as possible. To communicate with students about what services or op- portunities they would like to see inside residence halls, RHA assigned at least two representatives per hall. These repre- sentatives attended both hall and multicultural council meet- ings within the residence halls, presenting issues and gather- ing opinions on them. Once the overall feeling of an idea proved to be of great interest, RHA moved the concept into action. " RHA has taken on smoking in the residence halls, vacuums for the front desks and the changing of how the ethernet fee is charged to residents, " Engineering senior Timothy Winslow said. " Housing purchased vacuums for all of the frond desks, and RHA is working on how to change the smoking policy for future years in the residence halls. " Proud of everything the association has done, RHA in re- cent years has made vast improvements in both dining ser- vices and safety. " RHA is a great deal of fun and is an enjoyable experience, " Winslow said. " I decided to devote my energy to RHA because it was fun and also rewarding to see the work get done.

The Team was an organization dedicated to designing, building, testing, and racing a solar powered vehicle in national and international races. Consisting of over 70 members in the four divisions of Engineering, Administration, Strategy, and Op- erations, the team met weekly to discuss tactics and work on the year ' s vehicle. This year, the Solar Car Team participated in two major races: the American Solar Challenge and the World Solar Challenge. The American race took place along Route 66 from Chicago to Los Angeles. Held every other year, the American Solar Challenge is considered by many to be the national champion- ship of solar car racing. The university Solar Car Team finished in first place at this race over the summer. The .World Solar Challenge, a race in Aus- tralia from Darwin to Adelaide. The biannual world championship of solar car racing, the university team placed third and was the first American and the first university team to cross the finish line. As a transfer student to the University, Josh Harmsen, a junior mechanical engineering major and the Solar Car Team ' s project manager, wanted a way to further his job experience and to get involved with the campus community. The Solar Car Team was a perfect opportunity for both. He said, " The Team has provided me with experiences that go far beyond the classroom. They will most definitely mold my future.

The mis- sion of the group was " to create a community of students interested in Internet development, website design, and electronic business. " Consisting of approximately 50 members, the Michigan Entre- preneurs were headed by an executive board of one President, Umang Sahgal, and six vice presidents: Greg Graves, Katun Rana, Sam Valenti, Cora Ling-YeeYeung,SidharthSivasailam,andRostislav Leykind. Michigan Entrepreneurs spread their internet and business knowl- edge in a variety of ways. This year, the group featured a series of seminars called the Envision Speaker Series, which educated stu- dents about various aspects of business development such as de- veloping the business plan, finance and marketing, and implemen- tation of new ideas. Programs also featured members of the group that led workshops pertaining to computer skills much needed in the business world such as HTML. Businesses started by participants in Michigan Entrepreneurs included WebsiteLabs.com, ghostly.com, Computect, and ArborHost.com.

Celebrating Indian cus- toms and values as well as recreating life aspects left behind in India, the organization also strove to enrich the campus ' s cultural atmosphere. " We take pride in the fact that we are the most diverse Indian student group on campus cutting across barriers of language, culture, race and religion, " Engineering freshman Divya Parambi said. Consisting of over 300 members, the ISA sponsors helpful events for its members that involve them in cam- pus and enrich the community. Tarang is the kick-off party for the winter semester that includes training and performances of Indian dancing. A festival of colors cel- ebrated during thespring, Holi has a number of events for a limited number of members. Diwali, the biggest event gracing ISA ' s calendar, is a festival of lights celebrated with cultural shows, traditional prayers, meals and dancing throughout Ann Arbor. Independence Day and Republic Day celebrations are important to ISA, just as it is in India. " To echo the celebration of these important day sin the life of India as a nation, the association also endeavors to unfurl the Indian flag to the sound of the Indian anthrm and other partiotic songs, " Parambi said. " From overcoming my initial fears at being so far away from home to keeping me in touch with my roots, ISA reminds me time and time again of how proud I am of my motherland and her diverse cul- tures.

The only Asian pop culture magazine on campus, Shei was published once each se- mester with the help of over 70 contributors including editors, reporters, photographers, models, and more dedi- cated students. The group pledged to " provide and pro- mote a voice for all persons interested in the Asian culture and community artistically and creatively. " The staff of the magazine envisioned Shei to be a nationally recognized magazine across college campuses by the year 2005. Besides producing the magazine, members of Shei kept busy in two other annual events. Sheifest was their main publicity event that debuted at each release of an issue. A fashion show and auction with performances during inter- mission, Sheifest helped to turn the cultural ideas and innovations of the Asian community into reality. Shei also participated in the Asian Pop Culture Exhibition and Talent Show. The exhibition displayed photography, computer graphics, and other artwork by Asian artists or about Asian-focused issues. The event also displayed current musicand music videos from various Asian coun- tries. The Talent Show, which featured different groups and acts, was judged by Shei editors and university faculty and staff. For Wei-Pei Cherng, a senior mechanical engineering major as well as Creator and Editor-in-Chief, the maga- zine was a dream come true. " When I started Shei my freshman year, it was just a spark of inspiration, " she claimed. " To see how it ' s grown has been an incredible source of pride.

By spark- ing their interest, the organization strove to in- clude a greater sense of global responsibility. " We are dedicated to developing a breed of individuals in tune with the world ' s happenings and who are bold enough to bring forth positive change, " Helen Wang said. MUN ' s primary event involved high school stu- dents attending a weekend-long conference com- pletely run by the organization. The visiting stu- dents debated global issues while the MUN mem- bers moderated the discussion, running it in the same manner as the United Nations. " The purpose is to give high school students a chance to learn more about what is going on in the world and a global perspective of issues, while also having fun, " Wang said. " Staffers prepare for this conference all year long, brainstorming topics and information for the high school delegates. We planned everything that goes into the event get- ting rooms for the committee sessions, booking ho- tel rooms, providing transporation from the hotels, funding a delegate dance and designing the numer- ous publications that go into a conference. " Because MUN is an intercollegiate activity, uni- versity students had the opportunity to travel throughout the year. Members traveled to confer- ences both at Michigan State and Harvard to debate issues and gather ideasfor outreach and community service. " We are citizens not only of the city or country; we also have a responsibility to the globe, " Wang said. " That responsibility is knowing what is going on and how we can help.

" We are not by any means an exclusively Persian group, " Bahareh Aslani said. " Our intent is to create a favorable atmosphere for all our members regardless of ethnicity. " The school year saw a number of formal events starting in Septem- ber with a welcome dinner to allow new students to become comfort- able with the organization and familiarize themselves with the mem- bers. The association sponsored a professional night in which various alumni and graduate students gather to mentor PSA members and a cultural show the biggest event of the year highlighting Persian culture in the form of dance, music, skits and food. ' The cultural show allows us to share our heritage and background with the University community, " Aslani said. " We have found this to be one of the most effective ways us sharing our culture with others in a fun and educational manner. " Last year, the PSA put on a charity comedy showfeaturing an Iranian comedian from Los Angeles. The association sent all proceeds to the Revolutionary Afghan Women ' s Association. " The ultimate goal of this is to create an environment of dialogue and closeness to foster further learning and teaching for all parties, " Aslani said. " This is experienced shen the audience sees a Persian dance whose every move embodies thousands of years of culture, hears the poems of Rumi, listens to Persian music whose melodies reflect the instruments that have been used for centuries, tastes Persian sweets, and sees social values represented via comedic performances. " Organizations | 367 creatin; lasting memories Year after year, the Michiganensian demonstrated that it was one of the most acclaimed college yearbo oks in the country. After being awarded the Columbia Scho- lastic Press Association ' s Gold Crown, the highest honor given to a student publication, the staff continued their tradition of excellence in the book ' s 1 06th year of pro- duction. The success was due to the hard work, effort, and late nights spent in the office. In addition, the close- knit nature of the staff and the friendly atmosphere in the office also contributed to that success. " Between classes I duck in the office and laugh and talk and do work for Ensian or school. The Ensian office is not just where the book comes together, its where everyone on staff comes together too, " commented senior Co-Copy Editor, Sarah Johnson. In order to keep up the morale on staff, annual and impromptu social events were held throughout the year, including the holiday party and year-end gala, as by Evan Busch well as house parties at staff members ' houses. Led by Editor-in-Chief Jayme Love and Business Man- ager Evan Busch, the 2002 Michiganensian was one of the only yearbooks in the country entirely student run, without any faculty advisor. Responsible for not only creating a comprehensive publication, but also for man- aging finances and carrying out business operations, being a member of staff provided an educational expe- rience for all involved. " Being photo editor has really allowed me to express my creative side, while gaining a valuable experience in directing the photography of a large publication, " said senior bio-psychology major Abby Johnson. Regardless of each person ' s role on staff, the one thing everyone on staff had in common was a passion for the work they did. This dedication allowed the Michiganensian to continue its tradition of journalistic excellence. usiness Staff Front Row: Nathan Busch, Tanya Sit, Evan Busch, Zubin Kapadia, Aaron Saito photo by Betsy Foster Editorial Sta Front Row: Lauren Rutledge, Kristen Fidh, Andrea Goff, Jayme Love, Yvonne Humenay, Beth Sprang, Jennie F utvin.

Looking back over our college careers, we were reminded of the people who changed our lives, the classes we aced and the games we that kept us on the edge of our seats After three years of wait-lists, early morning classes, late registration days and staying into study, we finally were able to go out late dur- ing the week, sleep in, and take the classes we really wanted. While some of us worried about what the future held, others had never been more cer- tain of anything as they decided to spend the rest of their lives together. We made every moment of our senior year a special one, and we reminisced about some of the crazier things we had done as an under- graduate. With a bit of sadness in our hearts, we at- tended our last game, our last lecture, and our last party at the University. We came here four years ago uncertain of what laid ahead. Over the course of our " Michi- gan Experience " we made friends to last a lifetime, gained an education inside and out- side the classroom, created memories that will never fade, and we found ourselves. 370 I Graduates Rest ing outside the Clements Library, a sculpture of a stack of books re- mind students of their first obliga- tion as students at the University.

Mechanical engineering senior Jason Mayol reminisced on his craziest moment at the Uni- versity. " During my sophomore year, one of my friends came from out of town to visit me. It was the day of the Naked Mile so we both headed out there. With all the people gather- ing around to watch though, we couldn ' t see a thing. We actually ended up climbing a tree! We climbed a tree to see thousands of naked people running all around. You expect to see some weird stuff in college but come on! " Othercrazy times were simple random acts of temporary insanity that added to the hu- mor of college. Many of these experiences were never lived down. Aerospace engineer senior Joseph Mrozinski explained his moment of " fame. " " I ' ve been called Beavis all my life because of how I acted. ' Slim ' got thrown in there over the years and now I ' m getting paid a large sum of money to wear a name tag saying ' Slim Beavis ' all year long. People call me that more than they call me Joseph. " College was a time to kick back and have fun, and these students took fun to the limit. Looking back on college years, there would always be those things that students treasured, missed, and can ' t believe they actually did.

Talk to them about Starbucks and they may act like the coffee shop has been in State Street for- ever. The last four years brought a plethora of changes that the senior class had the opportunity to witness. " When I came to school here all that mattered was my social security number, now everything calls for my UMID number and I just don ' t have it memorized. I feel like a typical ' old person ' resis- tant to change, " Linnea Nyberg, an elementary education senior, recalled. The changes that students saw ranged from the noticable construction sites and chain store takeovers, to behind-the-scenes University regis- tration and policy changes. Among the many alterations observed and ex- perienced, some of the more memorable ones were the changing presidency, the halo falling from around the ring of Michigan Stadium, the affirmative action trials, the changing of coaches and the many construction projects. When asked about the changes he witnessed, David Tan, aerospace engineering senior ex- plained, " Just seeing Angell Hall undergo con- struction is a big change, especially with all those barricades up around Central Campus. " In order to keep up with the times and adjust to the constant changing world, the University un- derwent many drastic changes right before the eyes of seniors.

Engineering Business Administration Sports Management Graduates | 395 SENIOR PERKS Given a plethora of ad- vantages, seniors prove that with age comes privilege After paying their dues as underclassmen, se- niors finally experience the glory of higher sta- tus.To top off the great football tickets, bars and a familiarity of the campus, the University gave these special students even more privileges. First of all, prime registration times went to senior students. While underclassmen pulled their hair out watching classes close one by one, seniors generally found registering for their choice classes an easy affair. Senior Shannon Carmody stated, " It ' s really nice as a senior to get priority in registration; however that ' s only true when the University has a functioning sys- tem! " Although many students see registration as a time of insurmountable stress, seniors had the advantage of going through it nearly stress- free. Other registration benefits for seniors were the unwritten rules of overrides and indepen- dent studies. Because of their standing, profes- sors and GSIs tended to be more accommodat- ing to seniors trying to meet graduation re- quirements. When asked about what senior privileges she would like to have enacted, industrial and operational engineer senior Nicole Durham commented, " Even though I ' m graduating, my finals are after that. I would rather have more flexible times available when taking exams this year. " While improvements definitely could be made on areas such as these, there was no denying the added bonuses that came with seniority. Perhaps the biggest bonus that se- niors received, however, was simply knowing that in a few short months they would be done with undergraduate exams, homework and pa- pers.

Senior students looking for love found exciting ways toget engaged. Senior KristiCalandro ' sfiance Paul Tyll asked herto marry him in front of all of the people gathered at a Kappa Kappa Gamma soror- ity date party in April 2001 . " We had to decide what it was we wanted to do after college, and what we really want is just to be together and be married, " said Calandro. Couples found that loved ones showered them with congratulations and support. " My friends have all been very supportive, un- derstanding, and excited, " said senior business administration major Lissa Shaver, who got en- gaged to fiance Josh Bannerman after two years of dating. Even surrounded by love, couples didfind some obstacles. For senior IDE major Emily Varblow, arranging time to see her fiance, Michigan State University student Drew Buchholtz, put her social life at a bit of a quandary, as the couple had to juggle weekend commutes between Ann Arbor and East Lansing. Varlow said, " Our friends are excited about it, but can ' t really relate since al- most none of them are in serious relationships. " Other couples faced comments from friends thinking that they were too young to be getting married. " When you meet the right person and the time is right, I don ' t really thinkage matters all that much, " said senior Alison Perkins about her en- gagement to Kyle Reese, a graduate student in computer engineering. Overall, though, engaged students thought that the positives outweighed the negatives. Junior microbiology major Holly Sanborn had only one negative thing to say of her engagement to East- ern Michigan UniversityjuniorErichZechar, " Some- times my ring snags on my clothes that ' s kind of a hindrance.

The flag flew at half-staff for 1 1 D 1 1 OUT OF CASH Savers and spenders alike talk about a senior ' s budget From spending money for textbooks to spending money at the bar, seniors realized that their final year at the University was going to be a drain on their pocketbooks. Expenses that were specific to seniors included senior portrait sitting fees and the pictures that went with them, the costs of purchasing a cap and gown to wearto commencement exercises,gradu- ation announcements, diploma frames as well asahigherupperclassmen tuition imposed bythe University. Some seniors opted for luxiurious memorabilia such as class rings to preserve the memories of their final year. With twenty-first birthdays came a steady stream of cash flowing from the average senior ' s wallet to the tills of the bar. Many seniors used the bars to move within the social circuit. While this entertained seniors who found house parties rather tiring after three years of the same scene, going to the bar brought with it the expense of paying for intoxication. In order to stay somewhat in the red, seniors followed a variety of financial tactics, from finding part-time jobs to begging parents for cash. Regardless of the money-gaining and money- saving tactics, seniors spent their final year ex- hausting both their schedules and their wallets.
