Art Fair transformed areas like State and Liberty Streets, not only dot- ting the edges with white tents full of exhibitors, but filling the actual streets wr thousands Of people. T. AJcinimusuru photo 20 NI IAN " ...Art Fair seemed to breathe life into the city... " By Jennie Putvin Summer in Ann Arbor unfolded as a com- pletely different experience than the fall or winter semesters. Some argued that the atmosphere was calmer and quieter, but all that changed during the three days of Art Fair. Although somewhat inhibited by summer construction, the 32nd Ann Arbor Art Fair drew 480 artists and craftsmen from 37 states as well as thousands of visitors. Con- gested streets and detours affected the daily life of residents roads were blocked, making driving downtown impossible. Although July 17-20 was an inconvenience for residents, Art Fair seemed to breathe life into the city, and gave a nice break from the doldrums of summer. Junior bio-medical engineer Christopher Fecteau remarked, " The Ann Arbor Art Fair is perhaps the single most amazing event to grace the streets of our city, generating both a vastly diverse group of visitors and a strong sense of community. " Those three days in July offered not just an art fair, but an event. Vendors such as Retro Threads and Urban Outfitters displayed merchandise in the streets, and restaurants opened their doors and set up tables and tents on the sidewalk. Eateries from all over the city, such as Anthony ' s Gourmet Pizza, came down to Main Street and set up shop. Bands played in the streets at three different locations throughout the day, and artists provided hands-on demonstrations. Art Fair was truly a phenomenal event, packing the streets with residents and visi- tors alike. Local vendors take advantage of the crowd by having sidewalk sales on Liberty. Art Fair offered not onty an opportunity to purchase one-of-a-kind artwork, but also an opportunity to find some fantastic deals at shops all around town. T.

Sioclc photo MICHIGAN LIFE 2 1 " ...I discovered my RA had put someone else in my room. I was homeless! " By Kara DeBoer As the sun beat down overhead, flocks of students returned to the campus during welcome week, beginning August 27th. The scene was both chaotic and exciting illegally parked cars hugged the curbs, returning students struggled beneath heavy boxes, and bright young freshmen stepped foot into dormitories across campus. For the Greek community, this also was an exciting time. Many sophomore members of the Greek system moved into their houses for their first live-in year. After Rush Week, soror- ity members would finally enjoy the fruits of their previous year ' s social labor. Initially, how- ever, the experience seemed pretty ominous. " I moved into a seven by ten room.. .with someone else, " said Delta Delta Delta sophomore Chenin Kilduff. " Moving in was very hot and cramped. " Other sophomores moved back in to the dorms, finding the experience familiar and much easier than they did the previous year. " This year was a breeze, " said Gaurav Budhrani, a LSA sophomore. " Last year, when I got to my room and knocked, I discovered my RA had put someone else in my room. I was homeless! " Budhrani moved into South Quad this year, which he found very convenient. South Quad had elevator service, making Budhrani ' s fifth floor room easily accessible. Those moving into West Quad, however, were not so fortu- nate. Sophomore Kinesiology student Michelle Nelson also chose the dorms a second year because of its suitability in her demanding schedule she ran track but admitted the lack of elevators in West Quad made moving into her fifth floor double a bit difficult. " I moved in a day early, and that helped, " she said. " But it was still really really hot. " For students moving into apartments, there was the fear-inciting security deposit; for those choosing to share houses with friends, the fridge-dividing controversy; and for everyone, Third-year vocal performance major Emily Johnson and first-year engi- neer Nicole Ahnen help Alexander Lazarides and Tim Anjmolhoda check into their dorm.

" It took me three times as long to get through Ann Arbor to my apart- ient, " said Mike Hanpaa, senior engineering ajor. " The construction around campus was idly timed. Plus, on Thompson the street was one-way because of students moving into West Quad. " Yet, on September 3, the day before class, some roads were new and all were fairly unobstructed. As the sun set on the Univer- sity, the air buzzed with students traversing the campus. Having finally settled in their quarters, most were now settling in with friends, new and old. Students arriving at the last minute strug- gled to catch up, and trash heaps began to popu- late the sidewalks. Long after the street lamps lit, students ' minds were awake with excitement. Students unpacked, set their alarms, remem- bered the years past, and anticipated the year to come. For all students, however established in their Ann Arbor residence, classes would soon redirect their efforts.

Bowling was a great altematwe to the bar. T. Akinimusuru photo s ' decision to attend iversity was centered around the fact that as located in -the middle of the thriving city i Arbor. However, campus Ann Arbor and city Ann Arbor seemed worlds apart. With Main Street just a few blocks away boasting exotic restaurants and unique shopping, it seemed that nothing more was needed . . . iwou had time to go. Commented senior electrical engineering major Katie Johnson, " It ' sJ lP bad that most of the students never even make it out to Main Street. By J6nnJ6 It is such a nice part of town.. .but I guess we ' re all really busy. " Indeed, a curriculum of late study nights and social activities made it hard for students to find time even to go grocery shopping during the year if they lived off campus, not that there was a grocery store to be found in the downtown area. Located near campus were small stores such as White Market, The People ' s Food Co-Op, and Village Corner, but these stores were notorious for smaller selections and higher prices. The fact remained that if grocery shopping was to be done, one would have to look outside downtown, and that meant either getting in a car, or for the thousands of students that didn ' t have a car, taking the bus. " When I was a freshman, " began junior graphic design major Rachel Dominguez- Benner, " we thought we were brave enough to explore the city outside of campus. So there we were, sitting on the AATA bus, but nothing really looked too familiar. We chalked it up to the fact that we were freshman and didn ' t know the town too well yet. We finally realized our mistake when we ended up at the Vu in Ypsilanti. " Off-campus activities were not restricted to grocery shopping. As junior industrial operations engineering-film major Sara Grady remarked, " Not having a car is hell. You don ' t even know how much Ann Arbor has to offer until you can get more than a mile away from the Diag. " Although downtown Ann Arbor offered a plethora of culture and activities, some students yearned for activities such as bowling, going to the movies, excursions to apple orchards in the fall, or something as simple as going to the mall. A drive up Stadium Blvd. off-campus could take a student to the Village Theater, where movies were only two dollars, the thrift store, K-mart, Schlotsky ' s Deli, and Fazoli ' s. A drive down Packard could take him or her to Anthony ' s Gourmet Pizza and Fantasy Attic Costumes. Students drove down AnnArbor Saline to find Meijer ' s, often the spot of late night shopping, as it was open 24 hours arid had pretty much anything they needed to buy. And if students were adventurous enough, a drive to Ypsilanti on Ellsworth all the way past Carpenter road could find them at the nearest 7-11. But, as with anything, ' real ' Ann Arbor had its downfalls as well.

" (continued from page 29) town surrounded by students sometimes made a person forget that outside of campus people were not drunk at all hours of the day, and did not stay up until three in the morning on a weeknight. Although college life always seemed to possess a looming deadline or late night cram sessions, it also held a sense of experimentation and a carefree attitude that never made it past the borders of campus. Junior Jean Tomaro reminisced, " This one day over the summer two of my friends and I were trying really hard to get drunk at three in the afternoon at Cafe Felix on Main. We were sitting at one of the outside tables laughing and talking and I finish a story and my friend Eric remarked with a very loud swear word right as a mom and her three year old kid are walking by. The kid just looks at Eric and bursts into tears. The lady looks in horror at the three of us and our table littered with empty martini glasses, shining in the afternoon sun, and shouts, ' Don ' t corrupt my son with your foul language! And drinking is irresponsible! ' I turn to Eric and say, ' See, I told you we shouldn ' t have ventured into real people territory. You know mid-afternoon drinking is highly frowned upon anywhere this side of State Street. Why ' d we even get off our porch? Let ' s go back, so we can drink without judgement and fear of corrupting small innocent children. ' Eric nods slowly and says, ' Yes, back to the promised land. Take me to the porch! ' " The campus of the University was just a part of Ann Arbor, but undoubtedly an important one. The immense student population helped shape the city into something diverse, and despite difficulties getting around, a place that both permanent residents and students could call home.

Christiansen photo MICHIGAN LIFE 2 7 " Having to take a final exam alongside a demolition crew reinforces my belief that the administration is only concerned with their own futures and not ours. " By Lauren Rutledge Once upon a time, Central Campus was a welcoming environment for the thousands of students it served each day. Students walked eas- ily from one building to another, the Diag beck- oned studiers and Frisbee-throwers alike, and sounds of musicians, birds, and the occasional activists contributed to the dynamic atmosphere many associated with the University. But this year, several simultaneous con- struction projects turned the Diag and its neigh- boring areas into what seemed like a war zone. Fencing was assembled around the Modern Languages Building, Mason and Haven Halls, and Hill Auditorium. These projects not only inconvenienced students ' routes to class, but also drastically diminished the aesthetics of the ivy-covered buildings in question. The sounds of drilling and pounding (not to mention the yell- ing necessary to be heard over the drilling and pounding) became customary to those passing by. It was most difficult for students taking class- es in the Diag area. Patrick Crowley, a junior classical archaeology major, said, " I was taking a class in Angell Hall, and right in the middle of lecture in Auditorium A, a piece of the ceiling fell down right on my head. My professor just laughed, but I might have been killed. " While Crowley ' s experience may have been a little extreme, junior Bridget Briley, juniorsports management and film major, had a similarly exasperated opinion. She said, " Although I think it ' s noble that the University is trying to improve problems for future students, I think it is horrible that they are disregarding the needs of the students they already have. Having to take a final exam alongside a demolition crew reinforces my belief that the administration is only concerned with their own futures and not ours. " Fortunately, the construction hassles did plan to make students ' lives easier in the near future. An eight-story addition to Haven Hall, along with new electrical and computer sys- tems, was intended to house the departments of history, political science, American culture, and the center for African and Afro- American studies by November 2002. The renovation of Mason Hall promised to leave students with new lighting and floors, in addition to air- conditioned rooms. Hill Auditorium, nearly 90 years old, received new support structures, plumbing, ventilation, electrical systems, sprinklers, restroom facilities, and lobbies. Rackham Graduate School also welcomed a makeover, receiving improvements for office space, classrooms, galleries, an auditorium, and study lounges. All the construction projects the Univer- sity underwent this year certainly reinforced the saying, " Good things take time. " Maybe renovating the buildings on campus took too much time the students who might have waited eagerly for them ended up graduating before they were finished. 28 MI IENS1AN CONSTRUCTION backhoe tears into the sidewalk at Washington and State Streets.

PnmxpluKo " I hate cooking, cleaning, and most of all, residence hall food. Therefore, my solution is to eat out every night of the week. And there is no better place than Ann Arbor for some great food of every different kind of variety, " said By Jen n Jfer junior English major Robb Stey. |_gg There were many great places to go on campus to get food, drink, or just hang out and have a good time. Ann Arbor boasted many restaurants offering greasy foods places to gourmet eating. Places on campus seemed to be most popular with students because of their easy walking distance. For great pizza, students gener- ally visited The Backroom, Pizza House, or the ever-famous NYPD, all of which were open late to help with late night munchies. To ease that spicy, below-the-border craving, students went to Panchero ' s, Tio ' s or Del Rio for some amazing, melt-in-your-mouth burritos. However, students did not just eat late night; they also needed good lunch food. Ann Arbor held famous sandwich places ranging from the inexpensive Jimmy John ' s or Pita Pit, to the more expensive Amer ' s and Cosi. " The best food to have after a night out on the town is Chinese. Two great places are China Gate and Lucky Kitchen. Who can live without some delicious, greasy General Tso ' s chicken? " said sophomore psychology major Stephen Proctors. According to many students, the best time around town to munch on some amazing food was Parent ' s Weekend. During this time, student ' s wallets received a break as they let their parents take them out to Main Street for a night on the town. Main Street dishes differed greatly from campus food because it was more expen- sive, but generally better quality. Places such " The best food to have after a night out on the town is Chinese. " as Gratzi, Palio, Chop House and Real Seafood Company would be packed with hungry stu- dents and paying parents. " I had a great time during Parents Weekend because I got a break from taking girls out down on Main Street, and let my parents take me out for once. Plus, the food was amazing, " said Stey. Yet, Parents ' Weekend was not every weekend, so students found other nice places to go out with their friends or take dates. Popular date venues included Grizzly Peak Brewing Company for an intimate setting and some tasty beer, and the Gandy Dancer, with pricey but delicious seafood, pasta and steaks set in an old railroad station. Other places appealed more to large groups of friends. " The best place to go in the whole town is Mongolian Barbeque. There is great, cheap food, an awesome atmosphere, and always tons of college students at any time of the night. Even though the wait is usually long, it is worth every minute to go and have a large get-together or birthday party there. Plus, the grill staff was hilarious, " said junior English major Alison Moore. Wherever one went on or off campus to eat, they were bound to run into good food, good drinks and good friends.

" Mli.-:t!GANENSIAN FOOTBALL SATURDAYS Saturday football traditions ranged from pre-game house parties to Greek tail- gates to maize and blue body art. Saturday By Cn6lS63 football traditions also varied amongst the And6rSOn graces, as upperclassmen enjoyed pre-game parties and underclassmen brought about their own traditions. Upperclassmen living in houses scattered around the Big House and State Street often had pre-parties and tailgates with friends, while blasting loud music around the campus before and after the game to celebrate Michigan victo- ries. " We started partying at our house on Friday after class, and it lasted through Saturday night. Friends and family came in for the game on Saturday, too; I think we had fifteen to twenty extra people staying over during the weekend, " said Annie Dunsky, LSA sophomore. Dunsky, as well as the six other girls who lived in a house on State, celebrated the MSU blowout with friends and tons of food. Underclassmen decided to blaze new trails and start their own Saturday football traditions. A unique group called the Buckmasters consisted of about 10 students who wore flaming orange hunter baseball caps to every game. Hans Papke, a freshman in LSA, claimed the tradition started to commemorate his grandfather ' s fatal mistake. Papke ' s grandfather was a Michigan graduate of 1942. " As the legend goes, one Saturday morn- ing, he decided to go hunting and skipped a Michigan football game, " said Papke. Unfor- tunately, Papke ' s grandfather died in a tragic hunting accident that day, while the Wolverines suffered the sole loss of the season. While Papke was shopping at Meijer Madness, he discovered the hats in the hunting section and instantly thought of his grandfather. He bought them as a reminder to never skip a Michigan football game for a hunting trip. He and several of his friends wore the hats to every game. Together, students embarked on the tradi- tion of wearing maize and blue to the football games. Throughout the season, students had two " maize outs " and one " blue out. " The " blue out " against MSU was the most prevalent by far, as the student section was a sea of blue in support of the Wolverines. In addition to wearing school colors, a few crazy student fans would coat their bodies in paint and shiver the entire game while rooting for a Michigan win. High in the stands, the Buckmasters ceeorate between quarters at a foot- oall game. With one season under their be ' t. these freshmen hoped to turn their fun into a tradition. K.

Akinmusuru photo MICHIGAN LIFE 35 By Erica Chernick and Lauren Rutledge The University of Michigan Student Alumni Council sponsored Parents Weekend this year from Friday, October 1 1 through Sunday, October 13. The Student Alumni Council, in conjunction with the Alumni Asso- ciation of the University, organized this year ' s events. Parents Weekend gave parents the opportunity to visit the University ' s campus while classes were in session in order to get a sense of the campus community and a feel for what it was like for their children to live and attend school in Ann Arbor. During the week- end, filled with entertaining activities and infor- mative sessions, parents experienced a sampling of classes that their children could be taking. On Friday, parents attended a series of events that featured a few of the most renowned professors at the University, including biology professor John Shiefelbein, chemistry professors Robert Sharp and Brian Coppola, economics professor Janet Gerson and English professor Ralph Wil- liams. These lectures gave parents a feel for the academic options available to their children at the University of Michigan. The action-packed weekend also included student-led campus tours, which highlighted the main buildings on campus for parents, as well as the most celebrated myths and traditions that abound at the University, among them the practice of avoiding stepping on the big " M " on the Diag, for fear of failing one ' s first blue book exam. Although the primary purpose of Parents Weekend was to inform parents of the prolific aca- demic opportunities available to their children at the University, the weekend also provided various forms of entertainment. Parents Weekend featured a number of dramatic performances, including the musical Children of Eden, the play Imaginary Invalid, and a dance performance entitled Full Cycle: Tamango and Urban Tap. In addition to the wide variety of Parents Weekend activities held on Friday, the weekends ' festivities continued onto Saturday, at which point parents were able to experience a football tailgate in the Indoor Track Building. A more exciting ele- ment and highlight for some visitors was the oppor- tunity to attend a football game at the Big House against Penn State. After the football game and tailgate party, parents had another occasion to experience student performances on campus. The 2002 Michi- gan A Cappella Festival was held in the Rackham Auditorium on Saturday evening, during which more than a dozen University a cappella singing groups, including 58 Greene and the GMen, which performed for both parents and students. Junior psychology major Jana Kantor saw Parents Weekend as an opportunity for her parents to get to know her friends, and for her to get to know her friends families.

Neff photo THE 38 MlCHlGANENSIAN The " M " sits undisturbed on a crisp fall day The most well-known Univer- sity landmark was the object of many myths and traditions, that affected the lures of many students. Y. Qranota photo Stepping on the M as they walk by. students loiter in the Diag before a busy day of classes. Many student groups took advantage of the central ocation, chalking the ground with words to support their causes in hope that some of the student popu- lation would stop to read. Y. Qranata photo hriC The hearty brass ' M ' has graced the center of the Diag since the graduating class of 1953 donated the furnishing to the University. Since its arrival, the symbol has acted as a popular campus landmark and an unfaltering display of school identity. In 1997, the original centerpiece was transported out of state to receive a makeover; months later, a Brazilian- granite imbedding adorned the letter, which has remained through this year. Over the years, the ' M ' served as the focal point to one of the University ' s favorite myths. During freshman orientation, counselors reliably seized the opportunity to fill new students ' minds with some traditional lore. The legend stated that stepping on the ' M ' resulted in failing one ' s first bluebook exam. " Still haven ' t stepped on it, and still haven ' t failed one, " attested LSA senior Jay Kaplan. As the integrity of the University bred jealousy, the ' M ' made a token target for school rivals. Being a visible landmark in the center of campus, the symbol had been tarnished with graffiti in past years. Before the football game against Michigan State several years ago, some " Still haven ' t stepped on it, and still haven ' t failed one. " Spartan hooligans spray painted the ' M ' green and white, their team colors. While essentially harmless, this act soured the moods of students and faculty until the convincing win erased that memory a few hours later. That single occurrence, however, instilled a lingering suspicion of repeat offenses and prompted the heroics of the Theta Xi fraternity, whose members stood vigilant for three full days and nights preceding the MSU rivalry game, home or away. For the third straight year, the ' M ' remained unscathed. " We ' re happy to be a part of upholding the school image, " said former president and senior engineering student Michael Tchang.

Matta photo HALLOWEEN The variety of costumes, activities, and demeanors on Halloween night were reflective By LriC of the diversity amongst the University campus. Rdjdld T some foreign students, it was a new holiday to experiment with and observe. To others, Halloween marked only a former pastime of childish spirit. Some anticipated it fervently; others passively acknowledged it. The common denominator for participants on campus was a fun time. The Halloween atmosphere grew climactically as some encouraging professors distributed little candy treats during the week. During the daylight hours of Halloween, the most enthusiastic and serious of the partakers traipsed through campus in elaborate garb. They provided a comical sight as they waited for printouts in computer labs or bought supplies at the bookstores. With the student body abuzz with the most popular party venues, the stage was set for a hearty celebration. While trick-or-treating was scarcely practiced on campus, the creative cosmetics worthy of note were quite bountiful. Some traditional Halloween costumes were given explicit detail from their authors, including the characters of the Star Wars movies. Other outfits were based more on innovation than convention, such as a man covered in old computer keyboards. Even in a pinch, acceptable and amusing Halloween costumes were conjured up. " When in doubt, Kris Kross always works, " said senior mathematics student Cyril Cordor, referring to the old school rap duo who wore their clothes backwards. The house parties bustled and teemed with frothing vampires and crazed zombies. " Looking at all the beer kegs they went through, I don ' t think many of them were pretending, " noted fourth year LSA senior Jason Charo. Some fraternity houses held parties, but the most hectic action was invariably the block parties, in which multiple houses all opened themselves to host costume-clad guests. While beer was the most plentiful party favor, the elite house parties were outfitted with DJs and a formidable set of speakers for increased boogying capacity. The night was stolen by Elm Street, which combined the reputation of its name with lots of willing partiers to create a massive Halloween extravaganza that lasted late into the night. 40 -iF.NSlAN " When in doubt, Kris Kross always works.

" MlCHIGANENSIAN By Carly McEntee As the home of the Big House, the Uni- versity understood the importance of school spirit. Not many universities got the chance to watch a football game with 110,000 fans at every home game. The football experience at the University gave the students a true sense of community. All students had a different routine on Saturday mornings, before the football games even started. Junior LSA student Sarah Ziegler said of her Saturday mornings, " Sometimes I like to wake up on game days, blast out of bed and jump into my super-Michigan tights, cape and uniform. I crank up the Michigan Marching Band CD and as the announcer presents the 236-member marching band to...TAKE THE FIELD, 1 fly from door to door of each and everyone of my roommates ' bedrooms to ensure that they too get to enjoy the miracles and glories of Michigan spirit. sigh . " Students decided to create even more school spirit by instituting different themes for different football games. Marching band drum major Matt Cavanaugh came up with the idea of the " maize out " for the Penn State game. At this game the student section showed a sea of maize as the students wore all the maize clothing they could find. Cavanaugh said of the " maize out, " " The ' maize out ' idea was one of the many ideas that came from the members of the band, when they were presented with the challenge of improving the atmosphere in the Big House. The color of maize was chosen because it stands out among all other colors, and is highly visible across the expanse of the Big House. Visible unity was the first step in getting this crowd together. " A different theme, created along the same line for the football game against Michi- gan State University, came from seniors Melissa Roach, Maggie Malone, and Rebecca Feferman. They instituted the " blue out " where students all wore blue sweatshirts, shirts and jackets. The players and other fans could look at the stadium and know where the students sat. This show of spirit not only brought a rush to the fans, but also to the players on the field. The football stadium was not the only sporting event where spirit could be shown. At Yost Ice Arena many students showed up to cheer on the hockey team. Students at the games found the atmosphere not only to be exciting, but extremely energizing. They displayed their spirit by yelling chants at certain points of the games and cheering the team on. School spirit could also be found out- side of the sports arena. Throughout the campus, the University ' s logo could be found on many students ' clothing. Cavanaugh said, " It is a pride that all students feel by spending time with and learning from all of the diverse and amazing people around here. It is the realization that we are all taking part in a tradition of excellence that began so very long ago. " Whether cheering for the teams or walking around campus, stu- dents showed spirit and pride in the University. A student buys a " blue out " shirt on the Diag prior to the Michigan State game.

Malta phoio By Yun Sang Park learned a couple important lessons after leaving cooked rice in a steamer for more than three weeks: although spoiled milk was nothing compared to the stench of the rice forgotten in a steamer, the beautifully colored and textured composition of month old steamed rice was something else. University students often learned such lessons, whether in dorms, apart ments or houses, as it was easy to leave food out and forget about it. Even the simple jobs of washing dishes or taking out the trash were often neglected. However, such experiences were sometimes hard to forget. Park, a junior SNRE student, was still in awe at the mixed feelings he had for the rice. " When I opened the steamer, the smell that literally exploded out of it was indescribable. I had to take it outside and let it sit in the sun for days. However, I noticed the appearance of the steamer pot full of molded rice. To my surprise, it was quite beautiful. I could see varying shades of blue and green, and the mold looked so soft and cottony that I wanted to see what it felt like! " Park was truly captured by the contrast of unbearable stench and unexpected beauty. Gross food experiences extended beyond forgotten food. Talia Miller, a LSA soph- omore, was down to the last of her salad when she noticed a bug crawling around at the bottom of the bowl. " I didn ' t care to figure out what it was exactly. All I could think about was the fact that there was a bug with lots of legs crawling through the salad I had just finished eating. " Elizabeth Graham, a junior in the program in the environment, also commented on her experience with disgusting food. " Over winter break, we forgot to turn off the refrigerator, so the residence halls turned it off for us. When we got back and opened it up, all we could see were blue, green and grey colors and a constant drip- ping... " There seemed to be a common theme along all of these stories.

" By McEl " lt66 During their time at the University, students discovered a key piece of knowledge: the ability to play drinking games. A common practice on weekends and Thursday nights, Jinking games included Beer Pong, Flip Cup, Kings, Dice, " Never Have I Ever, " and Quarters. These games involved friendly rivalry or fierce competition, but either way they created hours of crazy entertainment. Beer Pong existed as one of the students ' favorite drinking games. The game consisted of ten cups set up in a pyramid, where the object was to throw a ping-pong ball into the cups. Each side would get two chances to throw a ping-pong ball in to the partial filled cups before it became the next teams ' turn. Whichever side threw in their ping-pong balls into all the cups first would win. The rules changed depending on who played, but the main principles remained the same. Engineering junior Jason Roselander said of the game, " If you ' re playing Beer Pong and your opponent won ' t put enough Shlitz in his cups, let it slide. You don ' t need to get in a fight for that. It ' s BEER PONG! " Another game popular at most parties was Flip Cup. The game could become a rivalry between two houses or just a friendly game between random partygoers. Physical education junior Nicholas Meter said of the game, " The key to Flip Cup is to realize you ' re probably intoxicated and other people are counting on you and to take that all in. You realize that all you are doing is flipping a fucking cup over. " The game used to discover the secrets of the participants was " Never Have I Ever. " The game made people divulge the secrets they had been trying to hide. Such statements included " never have I ever been tattooed, " and " never have I ever had a threesome. " Every time a statement was made, if the participants had done the action, they were subject to a drink. The more the students had experienced, the more likely they were to get drunk. Drinking games gave students an opportunity to make drinking more fun and also gave them a chance to get to know each other better. These games became a common place during weekends at the University and a fond memory for many students. MICHIGAN LIFE 49 n ...Ann Arbor was overflowing with lyrical talent.

From Hill Auditorium ' s renowned acoustics to random street corners improvisa- tional amateurs, Ann Arbor was overflowing with lyrical talent. LSA junior Krystal Dickens ' most memorable music moment came from an unlikely source: the Diag. " I ' ve seen the great- est performances on the Diag. Once I was on my way to a football game, and this Jamaican guy was playing the drums and making up music based on the people walking by. It was great, " Dickens said. " And there ' s a guy playing the harmonica there every day. " Other students saw music in more tra- ditional venues, like Hill Auditorium. " I ' ve seen Guster twice, once at Hill and once at the Mich- igan Theatre, " said LSA junior Jordan Powell. " I ' ve also been to the Bird of Paradise, where I saw some really classy jazz music. " LSA senior Casey Lindberg saw Beck and the Men ' s Glee Club at Hill Auditorium. As Hill was to undergo mass renovations in the summer, Lindberg added that he hoped to see " the old-style, tiered layout of the auditorium " at the venue the next year. Besides the theatres that showed mainly large-scale acts, including Hill Audi- torium, the Michigan Theatre, and the State Theatre, students also attended performances in more intimate settings. The Blind Pig, the Ark, the Firefly Club, and many cafes featured everything from jazz and folk trios to hip-hop groups. Mark Schneider, LSA junior and local musician, played acoustic guitar at many local cafes including Espresso Royale. Having recently moved from Pittsburg, he was much impressed with Ann Arbor ' s live music scene. " The acoustic scene in Ann Arbor is really strong, but under- ground, " he said. " There are far more acoustic groups than rock bands but we don ' t hear 80 percent of them. " Schneider added that the majority of groups in Ann Arbor are " aging folk- hippie groups. " Residential College sophomore Anna Blackburn preferred the area ' s most alternative venues, such as the Blind Pig, St. Andrews Hall in Detroit and the Magic Stick in Ferndale. " They show a lot of really diverse acts, " she said. Blackburn added that some of the best bands play at casual parties and local bars on the weekends. " Smokestack, Saturday Looks Good to Me, and Pedro the Lion are great, " she said. " It ' s always fun to get somewhere and find out there ' s a band playing. " A less notorious but very worthwhile venue, according to Blackburn, was a stage in the basement of dormitory East Quad called " Half- way Inn " where many local groups performed. The University offered multi-faceted entertainment and venues. This diversity allowed all students to discover and listen to music of their own liking.

Thomas photo " I don ' t work because I like giving back to the community...! work to pay the rent. " Many students, whether they were short on cash or just in need of some extra spending money, chose to work their way through the year. Time management, for some, was a reason to work or a reason not to. " I ' m not really sure why 1 didn ' t get a job, " said Ellie Dimick, LSA junior. " I didn ' t think I ' d have time, but at the same time I wish I had one. " Dimick, like many students, babysat and worked other odd jobs during the summer but chose to take the school year off. Art and Design junior Lorelee Bankert, on the other hand, felt that sometimes by K3T3 time management was much harder without a DeB06T Jk- With all the distractions available on campus, from the living room TV to surfing the internet, there was plenty to do besides study. But either way, she insisted, social life was a key element in every student ' s experience. " When I don ' t have enough to do, I don ' t get anything done, " she said . " I need either 12 credits, a job, and a social life, or 18 credits and a social life. Notice I choose the social life over a job! " When finances required it, however, balancing school and work was something many students had to master. The right job could make all the difference in how success- ful students handled their class load. Due to its convenient location, high pay, and flexible hours, working in the dormitory cafeteria was a favorite occupation for many students. It also offered the chance for meeting many people. Adam Carlin, LSA senior, worked in West Quadrangle ' s cafeteria all four undergraduate years. " Because of the high traffic in West Quad, I get to meet a lot of people, " Carlin said. But even though he admitted the work was better than other previous jobs, he wished he had more free hours during the week. " I like my job, " he said. " But it really distracts me from studying. I know I would get a lot more done if I could work less. " Engineering junior Ryan Dawson also worked in his cafeteria in Mary Markley Hall during his freshman year. " Working in the cafeteria was really good money, and very conve- nient, " Dawson said. This year he found an even more convenient job, though he thought many students would disagree. " I work for the Depart- ment of Public Safety. Everybody thinks we go on drunk patrol, but it ' s not like that. Some- times we have to patrol campus to watch for robberies or assaults, but otherwise it ' s all office work. I can split my hours up however I want, and the pay is good. " Many other students said they worked in restaurants, coffee shops, and various University libraries and offices. No matter what the occupation, however, money was always the bottom line. " I don ' t work because I like giving back to the community, " Carlin said. " I work to pay the rent.

T. Akinnwsum photo INTERNET The Internet, first developed in the early 1960s, was created for the sharing of super- computers among United States researchers. However, in this age of technology, the Internet was the way most students share information too. Students used the Internet for almost every- thing they do from checking the weather to making financial investments. Most commonly around campus, students used their Internet By Cn6lS69 connections to download music and movies, And6rSOn communicate via e-mail and America Online Instant Messenger (AIM), download software programs, and do research for homework. Daily, students flooded the numerous computing sites around campus while logging several hours of Internet time. But did they spend too much time on the Internet? " I check my e-mail five to ten times an hour, and I always have AIM going, " said Pat- rick Kincaid, LSA English major. Some students were so attached to AIM that it got in the way of their studies. " I have to be careful that I don ' t talk too long, otherwise I won ' t get anything done, " Kincaid said. The convenience of the Internet and its endless possibilities, however, could make life easier for students. " I like being able to hyper mediate my computer using AIM, Kazaa (media downloading program), and Microsoft Word simultaneously, " said Matt Davey, second- year LSA student. Davey also said he used AIM to communicate because it was faster and more convenient than the telephone, plus it was free. On the other hand, it was not cost effective if the money saved from a phone bill was spent on a new hard drive when a computer got a virus from data sharing via the Internet. " I won ' t put any downloading software on my com- puter because I ' m nervous that I will get a virus, " said Stefanie Zwick, a first-year LSA student. Last year, Zwick received e-mail with the sub- ject heading, " Here are the photos you wanted. " With curiosity, she opened the document, which crashed Windows on her family ' s computer. Her friend had received a virus that spread through e-mail address books. " I felt terrible about what I had done, but luckily my dad was able to fix it, " Zwick said. As a majority, students did not seem too worried about catching viruses on their com- puters due to the virus protection and firewall provided on ResComp ' s Blue Disk.

Liquor stores on campus provided students who did not have cars easy access to alcoholic erages, although sometimes they were forced to pay higher prices. T. Afejiimustini photo One of the most common beginnings to a night of partying was the ever-necessary liquor run. The nights were long, the money was short, and the 21st hirthday was still just around the corner. Where did students go to stock up? Campus Corner, located on the corner By K3T3 of State Street and Packard, was a favorite or tnose students still in anticipation of the " magic day. " Although the prices tended to be a little harsh, the cashiers checking IDs at this liquor vendor were, for the most part, pretty kind. " Campus Corner never gives you a hard time with a fake ID, " said LSA junior Emma Lister. According to LSA junior Kevin Maratea, Campus Corner ' s leniency held true only for girls. " Campus Corner is a good place for girls to go, but I swear they raise the prices for guys, " Maratea said. He added that all the stores around central campus hardly offered a bargain. " All the stores are pretty expensive, but they can be convenient when you don ' t have a car. You can just stop in, grab a 40, and go. " For those with cars, however, Maratea said that Meijer offered the best deals on liquor and beer. Additionally, he thought that it was the easiest location to pass a fake. " Meijer has the best prices and they are easy on IDs, " he added. Village Corner was unanimously voted as the place to avoid when using a fake. LSA junior Kelly Dobson agreed, and thought also that Village Corner employed some pretty sketchy characters. " Unless you have a nose piercing, I wouldn ' t expect anyone not to be asked to show ID, " Dobson said. Closer to central campus, the liquor and beer vendors included In and Out, Village Corner, Champions, and the Diag Party Store. Depending on whether students were interested in liquor, beer kegs, or pizza, different stores were preferred. " The Diag Party Store has the best Economics graduate Marc Lewin peruses the beer selection at Village Comer. The store housed one of the biggest wine selections on campus, as well as groceries and adult peri- odicals. T. Afcinmtuuru photo deal for kegs, " Maratea said. " Free delivery is key. " Dobson claimed that In and Out and the Diag Party store are famous for their late night pizza slices. A new addition to the late night munchie scene was Bella Napoli, located right next-door to In and Out, which competed with In and Out in the pizza market. According to some students, however, In and Out was still the best because of their secret marketing tech- niques. " You go in innocently to buy a gallon of milk, and when you see that pizza on the way, it ' s impossible to leave without it, " commented an anonymous LSA sophomore. Blue Front and Jimmy ' s Sgt. Pepper ' s were more convenient for those living toward the south side, although Lister said each store had a disadvantage. " Blue Front is best, but they close really early, " Lister said. " Sgt. Pepper ' s is also pretty cool but smaller in its selection. " Wherever the source, students with money and the right identification frequented liquor stores campus-wide. The Wolverines, hard at class-work during the week, depended on local liquor suppliers for much needed rest, relaxation, and rowdiness.

In particular, the Media Union, where I have to do most of my programs, has so much to beautiful art to look at all of the time, " said junior engineering major Graham Nash.

Maher photo 66 MlCHIGANENSIAN NEW REQUIREMENTS CAUSES MALCONTENT AMONG ART STUDENTS College: a time for intellectual freedom and a break from the mandated and sometimes uninteresting courses delegated by high school curriculums. At least that ' s what many Art and Design freshmen were anticipating when they stepped through the doors of the University ' s learning community. While many students grumbled at the restrictive nature of their concentration requirements, the Art and Design freshmen were never given an option. Many students did not take the school ' s description of " highly structured " for the first two years of study to mean entirely structured. " We are not allowed to choose which classes we want to take or when we want to take them for our first two years; each freshman received a copy of their schedule for the fall term at orientation, which was drawn up by the administration with no regard for the personal preferences of the students, " said freshman Art and Design major Taylor Rutledge. The new choice of curriculum was part of the University ' s wish to become a world-class institution with globally minded, well-rounded students. While certainly admirable in the eyes of the students affected by the new change in policy, it did create concern over insufficient time to achieve mastery in their selected art media in the remaining " extraordinarily flexible " two years at the school. The subsequent presentations of their work at the end of their fourth and eighth semester might have been more difficult for the students affected by the new program. Students who performed unsatisfactorily on these reviews were asked to either re-review at a later date, asked to take time off or improve problem areas, or in some cases leave the program altogether. There were also problems with the individuals interested in transferring into the program from either within the University or elsewhere. " Even though I have completed an art class from the old curriculum and even though I have completed two semesters here at the University, if I were to transfer to the art school, I would still have four years of undergraduate classes ahead of me, at the least. This is, I think, understandably distressing, " said sophomore LSA student Dustin Crawford. The dissatisfaction and disillusion felt by many freshman students faced with two more years of mapped out and inflexible schedules prompted them to sign petitions that were then brought to Assistant Dean Mary Schmidt in hope of modifying the curriculum and explaining the student impact of the new requirements. Waiting for these changes to happen, the discussions left to the freshmen in the Art and Design classes were concluded by Rutledge as such: " We likened the new curriculum to an ice cream parlor in which we are forced to sample every flavor; even if we know we ' re allergic to chocolate, we ' re made to swallow a mouthful of Mackinac Island Fudge. " BY KATHRYN TORRES ACADEMICS 67 ndmg a riace STUDENTS ' OPINIONS VARY AS TO THE IDEAL SPOT TO STUDY On weeknights and some- times even on weekends, students could be found in a variety of places studying for classes, preparing for exams, and writing papers. The studying places ranged from coffee shops to the libraries to dorms and off-campus housing. The reasons for studying at different places were unique to each student as they found a place where they could be most productive. One of the most popular places on campus to study was the Undergraduate Library, better known as the UGLi. The UGLi provided four floors of places to study with full-sized tables, small carrels and com- puter labs. Even within the UGLi, students tended to stick to a single floor for study- ing. The basement and the first floor had the reputation of being the loudest, while the third and fourth floors offered a quieter atmosphere. Junior English major Allison Lazette said, " I like to study on the fourth floor of the UGLi. I study there because there are lots of tables and it is usually quiet, but not too quiet. I like some background noise when I study. " Students also chose to study at the Hatcher Graduate Library. The reading room provided tables and tables of lighted seating areas, or if a student did not want anyone to find them, they could hide in the stacks. Studying at the libraries also allowed students to take study breaks. The food venues close to the libraries, such as the Union, In and Out, Panchero ' s, and Jimmy John ' s, allowed students to refuel and pick up some food for energy. Some students chose places to study based on their location. They chose places close to their house, to classes, or to food areas. The Union provided a variety of places for students to study. They could sit in the MUG, find a couch on the first or second floor, or study at a desk in the read- ing room. Lazette said, " 1 also like to study and read in the Union reading room. I like to study there because it is quiet and there are really comfortable chairs. Also, as an added bonus, there are many places to eat downstairs if I get hungry. " Coffee shops provided students with the ability to study in a more casual environment. They could talk there while studying, have food and drinks, and be in a more exciting atmosphere. Some of the common coffee shops to study at included Amer ' s, The Coffee Beanery, Espresso Royale, Starbucks, and Rendez-Vouz Cafe. Junior anthropol- ogy and Spanish major Heather Hicks said, " I love the people you find at the Rendez-Vous Cafe, very internation- ally mixed with many languages being spoken. The environment is very con- ducive to conversation, which can be dangerous when trying to study. The best Nutella crepes! " Even if studying always did not get done, the study places allowed for social interaction. In the end, students ended up doing what had to be done to get their work finished. Each student had a different special place on campus where they felt the most comfortable studying.

Most assumed it was just a manner of habit or social inclination. However, University psychologist Oscar Ybarra suggested that there were other factors in play. " Across all age groups, the more socially engaged participants were, the lower their level of cognitive impairment and the better their working memory performance, " he explained. Popular consensus for maintaining and improving mental faculties involved usually solitary, intellectual activities such as reading or doing a crossword puzzle. It was common to see crossword enthusiasts searching for four-letter words during lecture, " I enjoy doing crossword puzzles because they are fun and challenging and sometimes I can multi-task but if the crossword is hard then you do have to choose between one or the other, " said senior biology-psychology major Marco Fuji. There were as many different places to study on campus as there were factors in deciding whether or not to study alone; " It will depend on the subject matter, like for Orgo I will study by myself because I need to concentrate but then for other classes I have to work in groups to get anything done, " said sophomore engineering major Ryan King. While some chose the intense silence of the Graduate Library, some people really did need the extra stimulation found in coffee houses and the Undergraduate Library. " I normally study alone, but I tend to get a lot more done with groups, music, and noise, " said freshman engineering major Erik Powers. Although Ybarra ' s findings only established a possible link and not a real cause, he asserted that it might have some insight in social and cognitive evolution into cultures. For many courses the exchange of ideas was most helpful in understanding the subject matter, although there could be other situational factors as well. " Basically it ' s not necessary to need that sense of belonging when studying with someone else, but it is more comfortable and less stressful, " Powers said.

' 72 MlCHIOANENSIAN CLASSES TEACH THE MANY FACETS OF THE SEPT. 11 TRAGEDY Following the September 1 1 attacks, the University of Michigan decided to offer undergraduate courses reflecting on the different aspects of terrorism. The eight classes, created within the college of LSA, included: Ethno-Religious Conflict and the Media, War in the Twentieth Century Middle East, The Psychology of Negotiation and Conflict Management, Political Psychology, International Politics, Literature and Evil, State Sponsored Terror in Asia, and From Camelot to Kandahar. Each of the classes used examples from the September 1 1 attacks, as well as other historic events, to emphasize theories and con- cepts within their specific curriculum. This allowed the students to hypothesize and come to their own conclusions about the rea soning behind the attacks, as well as the politics that followed. " This class hasn ' t really changed my views or opinions on the events of September 11, but it makes me think of all the reasoning behind the attacks like leadership theory, conflict, nuclear war, and terrorism, " said Elizabeth Kluczynski, third year LSA student, of her Political Psychology class. The Political Psychology course, taught by Professor David G. Winter, focused on topics of leadership, war and peace, individual and group personality at a distance, psychological aspects of political processes, and the breakdowns and restoration of the political process. " This class adds a new dimension, a new angle and prospective to the attacks on the World Trade Centers, " said Stavros Lee, a second year engi- neering student. During the topic of leadership, the Political Psychology class concentrated on the ques- tion of what it takes to be a successful leader. " Was Muhamad Ata, the man who con- vinced 19 people to crash airplanes into World Trade Center buildings a successful leader? " Professor Winters questioned his class during lecture. " What about Osama Bin Laden? " Students within the class commented on both sides of the issue disputing the uncertainty. One student responded, " Yes, because Osama Bin Laden accomplished his mission. " Another student cross-examined the issue saying, " No, there was a much larger goal in mind besides destroying two towers, like disbanding Americans. " Students in the Psychology of Negotiation and Conflict Management first year seminar, taught by Kim Leary, associate director of the University ' s psychological clinic and clinical psychologist at the Institute for Human Adjustment, said that their pro- fessor used examples from the September 1 1 attacks quite frequently because it was an example to which students could relate. Also, these recent events were not yet included in textbooks, so they came up in conversation frequently. " The seminar has expanded my views on stereotypes and prejudices around the United States and has helped me to realize how our country has changed by the way we interact with Arabs. Now I see tons of stereotypes and I realize it is not the right thing to be doing, " said Jon Anderson, freshman LSA student. Students seemed to appreciate this new addition to the curriculum and the ability to relate the common courses to a major historical event with which we all had experience.

The decision ended a six-month search by the regents, who acted as the presidential search committee. In August, Coleman succeeded Joseph B. White, the interim president, who had served for almost a year. Coleman came from the University of Iowa, where she had served as president since 1995, and as professor of biochemistry in Iowa ' s College of Medicine and professor of biological sciences in the College of Liberal Arts. Regent Laurence Dietch commented on her outstanding academic accomplishments and credentials, describing Coleman as " a national leader in higher education, who was quite simply the best candidate in an extraordinary field. " In addition to her presidency at Iowa, Coleman also had an impressive history, holding several leadership positions at various prestigious institutions. " My entire career has been spent at some of the nation ' s finest public universities, " Coleman said. " The presidency of the University of Michigan is the pinnacle of public higher education. I am looking forward to this oppor- tunity to work with the faculty, staff and students of this great university. " Lee C. Bollinger decided to accept presidency at Columbia University in October of 2001. After serving for five memorable years, Bollinger ended his career at the University, moving to his alma mater. Throughout his presi- dency, he had established a very close connection to Univer- sity students, and a new relationship between the University and Ann Arbor. When he left for New York mid-year, Uni- versity students and faculty bid him a fond farewell. Coleman ' s arrival heralded new academic initiatives and an inevitable change in agenda. Coleman expressed that she was especially committed to the success of the campus- wide initiative in the life sciences, because " as in so many fields, the benefits of Michigan ' s work in healthcare and life sciences research are felt across .the state and around the world fulfilling the mission and role of a great public university dedicated to advancing the public good. " She also expressed her pride in the University ' s defense of the educational value of a diverse student body, and her excitement towards the array of upcoming internation- ally significant events to be held at the University. Cole- man also continued some of the initiatives Bollinger had worked on. For example, she supported the University ' s participation in Fathom, one of the premier resources for authenticated knowledge and online learning available on the Web today, as well as the President ' s Advisory Committee on Women ' s Issues. " The fundamental objec- tive of the Commission was to help women achieve full and equal participation in all aspects of life and leadership at the University of Michigan, " promoting the develop- ment of new policies, practices, and procedures designed to enhance gender equity. On August 29th, Coleman appeared before class of 2006 at the New Student Convocation, giving both words of praise and advice. " It ' s wonderful to have you here at last our fabulous class of 2006. Even from this distance, I can see the spark in your eye that says ' Here I am, bring it on! ' I know exactly how you feel because I am new here too, " Coleman proudly told the arena filled with thousands of freshmen. She went on to remind stu- dents of the " dance " they must perform throughout their years in college: one step forward, one step back, and a sideways slide. " Learning should be a joyful, exciting experience - not a dogged march from the first day of class to a predetermined finish line or the first day of your first job. Loosen up, " she said. " Explore those tangential paths while you have the chance. " By the end of her speech, it was clear that she had filled the hearts of the freshman class. Coleman ' s warm welcome extended to the rest of the University, as she continued to appear at major events and speak before her beloved new family. BY HAN-CHING LIN ACADEMICS 75 BUSINESS SCHOOL RANKS SECOND IN THE NATION H aving the world ' s second ranked Business School, the Uni- versity was quite a force to be reckoned with. This title, given by the Wall Street Journal, was appropriate for the awesome combination of an outstanding faculty and cut- ting edge knowledge as well as students that were highly motivated and talented. With a faculty made up of leading experts in their fields, and students who expected no less than that, the product was an unrivaled educational experience, which empowered students with both business knowledge and the ability to apply it to the real world. Students in the Business School were given a solid grounding in all of the functional areas of business through a core curriculum and were then able to develop a specialization. This tradition resulted in training that was excellent across the board, providing students with the advantage of working across functions and possessing knowledge of multiple areas of business, while superb teaching supported their specialization and career interest. Faculty and students who expected a great deal from one another complimented the cutting edge knowledge across the board. The teach- ing quality in the Business School was respected all across the world. The faculty, made up of experts in a variety of fields, were committed to an outstanding performance both in developing business knowledge through research and in delivering that knowledge through teaching. The students, on the other hand, were a group that was both diverse and highly moti- vated. " The B-school lived up to its name, " commented Lu Kong, a junior in the program. " 1 couldn ' t see how someone could come out of the B-school not succeeding. Everyone was so motivated. " The program ' s excellence also meant that it was highly selective. " The selective admission process made the student body top-rank. Stu- dents who were selected maintained Michigan ' s high ranking, " said junior Shivangi Shah. Despite the competition, the business school was a tight commu- nity. " We were put in sections when we entered the school, and you had all your core classes with those same people. I really got a chance to know people, and we organized social events outside of class, " said Shah. All the great things about the Business School made it a great help when it came to looking for a job after graduation. Shah was confident of this. " I felt Michigan ' s name would help me when I ' m looking for a job after graduation. Our reputation went far. Even at orientation, they were talking about jobs, and the importance of it.

Qranata photo O MlCHIGANENSlAN Payin TUITION PRICES CAUSE STUDENTS TO FIND DIVERSE JOBS Despite the inevitable disparity in financial situations and circumstances, college stu- dents across the country could attest to the fact that university tuition costs had skyrocketed in recent years. The staggering rate at which tuition prices had risen and continued to rise prompted, if not forced, students to search for ways to help finance college costs. Several University students took advantage of available work-study opportunities, loans, scholarships, jobs and other resources to help compromise the hefty price tag of a college education, particularly that from the Uni- versity of Michigan. The government helped fund an education through many ways, such as federal loans or military ser- vice. The Navy had virtually made attaining a college education for Aaron Bell, who served for six years, a more realizable goal. He said, " Without the help from the mili- tary, attending school would have been more difficult for me financially because I did not receive any scholarships. 1 definitely would not have been able to attend the Uni- versity because of the tuition being so high. " Bell ' s tuition check was sent directly to him, not to the University, as a form of tuition payment, and was conditional upon calling or verifying online that his enrollment in the University had not changed. " The military has given me the opportu- nity to obtain a degree from the University without having to worry about how I am going to pay for it, or how my parents are going to pay for it. " Most students were unable to obtain full scholar- ships, which left them with the difficult task of finding the money not just for tuition but for living expenses as well. The University ' s definition of a student employee was one whose " primary purpose for being at the University is to obtain an education. " Although the tuition prices were rising, the University provided countless work-study and non-work study jobs in varying capacities to all students. Many chose to be resident advisors, obtaining free room and board for at least one year to help lessen the burden of living expenses on top of heavy tuition bills. One less involved non-work-study job at the University was that of bus driver. " Since I can ' t pay tuition, my parents take care of it and I take responsibility of the other things such as rent and food, " said senior bio-psychology student Otema Ansong. Ansong was one of the many students at the Uni- versity that took care of tuition either through parental resources or loans and shouldered the living expenses on their own. A few students were able to pay completely for their education themselves through work. However with the rising cost of tuition and prices overall, financial inde- pendence was a harder goal to obtain than in the past. Said Ansong, " Even with two jobs, I still don ' t think that it is enough. " BY ERICA CHERNICK AND KATHRYN TORRES " EVEN WITH TWO JOBS, I STILL DON ' T THINK THAT IT ' S ENOUGH.

NENS1AN ncerrain victory AFFIRMATIVE ACTION RULING MET WITH INCREASED DETERMINATION May 14, 2002 marked a very important date in civil rights history. On that date the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati, Ohio ruled to uphold the University of Michigan ' s tradi- tion of using race as a factor in the admis- sions process. Grutter vs. Bollinger was one of only three cases since 1978 in which a federal Circuit Court ruled in support of Affirmative Action, and very well may become the first case of its kind ever heard in the Supreme Court. The conflict all started October 17, 1997, when students Jennifer Gatz and Patrick Hammacher sued the University regarding its admissions policy. Both stu- dents excelled academically in high school, yet were waitlisted and eventually rejected for admission into the school of LSA. In December of 1997, Barbara Grutter, who was waitlisted and then rejected by the Law school in 1997, also sued the University. These highly controversial cases gained momentum over the next few years. Student group BAMN, The Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action and Integration and Fight for Equality By All Means Neces- sary, became more and more involved with the issue as the years passed. When Presi- dent Lee Bellinger ' s plea for the admissions process ' constitutionality was rejected, BAMN decided to take action. In January, 2000, BAMN put on a trial in Detroit. The group gathered its own witnesses, who together presented evidence for the bias in today ' s academic system and the need for and efficacy of affirmative action. It was a unique opportunity, arous- ing new interest and debate among both the student group and the plaintiffs in both pending cases. " This was our generation ' s opportunity to put racism and inequality on trial and ask once again if it is unconstitu- tional to combat it with the admissions pro- cess, " said BAMN activist Agnes Aleboua. Over the next few months, various companies, including GM, Intel, Micro- soft, and others filed briefs in favor of the University ' s policies. Representatives from each were in agreement that revoking such an admissions process would deny busi- nesses well-qualified minorities and reduce campus diversity. On December 13, 2000, Judge Patrick Duggan ruled in favor of the Uni- versity ' s undergraduate admission policies. However, the battle over the Law school ' s rejection of Barbara Grutter and others was just beginning. The Center for Individual Rights (CIR), which had also represented Jennifer Gatz, began its trial against the Law school on January 16, 2001. Two subsequent rul- ings later, the University ' s case looked dismal. On March 27, 2001, Judge Fried- man rejected the school ' s argument that its discrimination against white and Asian students is justified in order to attain diver- sity, and also rejected student intervenors ' claim that the admissions process is justi- fied to remedy past societal discrimination against minorities. The group responded with vigilance and determination, hold- ing a 3000 person demonstration on the University ' s Diag two days after the deci- sion was announced. On December 6, 2001, the plain- tiffs appealed the c ase at the 6th Circuit court in Cincinnati, Ohio. BAMN activ- ists and hundreds of supporters arrived on scene, filling the entire courtroom and two overflow rooms. The group also brought a 60,000 signature petition to substantiate their backing. The hearing was a success, and the date of the trial was set for January 16, 2001. On the court date the plaintiffs arrived greatly outnumbered. Barbara Grutter, who never actually testified, was joined only by representatives from CIR; the defendants, however, included President Lee Bollinger, UM Law profes- sor Richard Lempert, a University statisti- cian, and fifteen student intervenors from BAMN, United for Equality and Affirma- tive Action (UEAA), and Law Students for Affirmative Action (LSAA). Each group was allowed 30 hours to present their case, but in the fifteen day, month-long trial only the student intervenors used all their allot- ted time. On Friday, May 31, 2002, BAMN held its third National Conference on the Michigan campus, drawing thousands from states across the country. Its objectives were to celebrate the ruling, to begin the collec- tion of one million signatures in defense of affirmative action, and to organize a rally on the steps of the White House if the Supreme Court accepted CIR ' s appeal. Grutter vs. Bollinger was already a landmark case in many ways. It was the first case ever in which student intervenors put on a full case at trial. It was also the most highly debated and discussed trial since the Bakke decision in 1978, upon which the University ' s current admissions policies are based.

" Susan Alcock, David Potter, and Sharon Herbert, from the classical studies department, and Terry Wilfong from the near eastern studies department collaborated to compile the information. While this idea was certainly trendy, students reading the fine print soon discovered that these courses generated no applicable credit to a degree. In fact, the primary audience was not necessarily the students. " We want to continue our connection with alumni throughout their lives, " explained associate provost for technology affairs James L.

Through lack of options, some struggled in vain throughout their college careers to find a job that truly inspired them. The Career Center, formerly known as the Career Planning and Placement Center, strove to reawaken the same energy that students put into getting into the University and channel it into securing an internship or full-time job. " We are the bridge between college and the work force, " said Career Center worker and junior sociology major Harlena Reed. The Career Center wished to help students become successful in job searches throughout their lives. The countless informational pamphlets on jobs, colleges and entrance exams found in the office made the difficult transition from student to employee smooth. While they could not guarantee a job to every student, they stressed the importance of self-motivation while providing the tools to help. " What we can guarantee is that we will help students through any part of their career exploration and job search process, " said Peer Advising Services Coordinator Alana Jardis. If walk-in advising was not immediately available, peers advisors were trained to help with general advising and guide through FORUM, an online recruiting system for University students, which allowed students to put out their resumes to numerous jobs through bidding. Unique programs included online job fairs, forums, and advising as well as the mock interview. " Mock interviews are really helpful because you can see your strengths and weaknesses, " said Reed. While many students found The Career Center to be the ideal place to work through career goals, others took a more individualized route by seeking out mentors in professors, GSI and other faculty.

" Even though I wasn ' t that stressed out, it was still nerve-wracking to deal with all the stuff I needed to do in the next three years.

Most students placed a lot of trust in advising staff to guide them to pick the right classes to take so that they could graduate on time. " I scheduled all of my classes according to what my advisor told me, " said Michelle Sarb, a kinesiology freshman. " I hope to get a lot of help from them in the future years as well. " Some students, on the other hand, faced difficulties when it came to getting help from advisors. " I came into the University knowing what I wanted to do, but not knowing how to go about doing it, " commented Orehemetse Marang, a senior in LSA. Studying psychology her first year, she switched to the Center for African Studies, and then finally decided to go into general studies with a focus on three particular areas she was interested in. " My advi- sor didn ' t help very much in giving me the right advice, nor did I feel like they cared much. Instead, it just took a lot of time to learn what was out there at the University, and I basically figured it all out on my own. " Although many students felt it was dif- ficult when it came to choosing a major and graduating on time, the craziness of freshman year was often the reason behind that. " A lot of freshman think they have a focus when they come in, " said Scott Kassner, an LSA academic advisor. " During sophomore year, real- ity sets in and they begin to understand that they were na ' ive and that selecting a concentration is a serious matter. " The process of choosing a concentration, and making the transition from fresh- man year to a more focused academic life was a different experience for each student. Some took advantage of the advising staff available, while others did it on their own. Nicole Rufuku, a junior in the Business School, described her personal experience in finding what she wanted to do. " No one should hold your hand when it comes to choosing our major. In such a huge university setting, there are defi- nitely times when not everyone gets a lot of attention. This teaches students to be strong and independent. " Freshmen had a lot to deal with. What was sometimes pushed aside was paying the necessary attention to learning the ropes around campus, so that students wouldn ' t have to worry about making it through tough classes or fulfilling requirements and graduating on time. However, almost all freshmen saw advisors, who acted as mentors, giving them advice and encouragement. For some, this worked out perfectly; for others, it was a journey on their own. Whether advisors played a major role, one thing was certain: the transition from a freshman to an academically focused upperclassman was no walk in the park.

Sioner photo ACADEMICS 87 r ious Diversity LOSS OF RESIDENT FELLOWS BRINGS PROGRAM INTO QUESTION The vision statement of the Lloyd Hall Scholars Program as printed in the Fall 2002 Welcome Book was the fol- lowing: " The Lloyd Hall Scholars Program supports and inspires students to risk discovering their best selves and to take responsibility for the successes of their education. Students shape their future within an honest, intimate and diverse commu- nity of teachers, mentors and peers. " Perhaps one of the most attractive attributes of the Lloyd Hall Scholars Program was its focus on, and nurturing of, the diver- sity of the student body at the University. The program had been quite popular for this reason. Although the program ' s emphasis on promoting diversity and building a close-knit community was bound to draw universal appeal, it was of particular interest to students who were Michigan residents. Many such students chose to become Lloyd Scholars to meet fellow students from across the country and around the world. Often times, these in-state students wished to become involved with the Lloyd Hall Scholars Program so that they were not constantly spending time with the same people they knew prior to coming to the University. Many members of the campus community, particularly those who lived in Alice Lloyd Hall this year and in recent years, noted the program ' s apparent lack of diversity, despite its mission to support and sustain it. " The lack of diversity within Lloyd Hall is undeniable, " said Lloyd Hall resident fellow Leland Davis, " but it goes beyond the underrepresentation of minorities and people of color. Even amongst the white students of Lloyd Hall, there is a distinct lack of diversity. " Davis went on to point out that diversity was more than merely the group one came from; it was also about how one chose to spend their time at the University. Davis noted the importance of tackling the issue of the underrepresentation of racial and ethnic minorities, but reiterated the University ' s need to ' attract a wider spectrum of students from within the white com- munity as well. ' Other resident fellows shared Davis ' views on the value of fostering and maintaining diversity in the program. " Diver- sity is an unmet goal of LHSP, " said Lloyd Hall resident fellow Patty Skuster. " I am grateful that the LHSP administration is increasingly working to achieve it. 1 hope to see even more resources put toward diversity in the future. " Perhaps this lack of diversity stemmed from the strong interest of in-state students in becoming part of a program that stressed the notion of diversity on campus and aimed to devote a certain number of spots in the program to out-of state and inter- national students. What many students in the Lloyd Hall Scholars Program, particularly Michigan residents, noted is that this inter- est ultimately led to a drastic increase in the number of in-state students living in the dorm and participating in the program. Con- sequently, this has resulted in a lack of diversity in the Alice Lloyd Residence Hall and in the program ' s classes. Past and present participants of the Lloyd Hall Scholars Programs have cited a severe lack of diversity among its members. Marjorie Horton, LSA assistant dean of undergraduate education, suggests that the narrowed diversity in the program could be a result of relatively new living learning communities that have been cre- ated since 1994, which include the UROP In-Residence Program, the Michigan Community Scholars Program and the Health Sci- ences Scholars Program. The Lloyd Hall Scholars Program had also boasted as a central feature of the living-learning community the availability and accessibility of Lloyd Hall resident fellows, who taught and lived with students in the program. Due to budgeting procedures and irregularities, however, the Resident Fellow Program was elimi- nated, which in effect, took a great deal away from what the pro- gram prided itself on. A number of resident fellows in the programs were particularly saddened by this initiative to end the Resident Fellow Program. " In a way, the abolition of the resident fellows defeats much of the purpose behind the Lloyd Hall Scholars Pro- gram, " said Davis. " The idea of a ' living-learning community ' is that students will be provided with learning opportunities both in the classroom and in their living area Lloyd Hall. By abolishing the Resident Fellow Program and transferring their jobs to Sweetland, this purpose is defeated, because the instructors from Sweetland will not be nearly as accessible as is an resident fellows who lives in the building ' s basement. " As a respon se to this noticeable preference of new versus old programs, as well as a visible drop in diversity of students in the program, the Lloyd Hall Scholars Program proposed employing measures that would encourage the active recruitment of minority students, so as to restore the lost diversity seen in recent years. 88 MlCHIGANENSIAN BY ERICA CHERNICK " IT GOES BEYOND THE UNDERREPRESENTATION OF MINORITIES AND PEOPLE OF COLOR.

Matta photo 90 MlCHIOANENSlAN Di Different B THE RESIDENTIAL COLLEGE OFFERS THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS For students who wanted to experience a smaller, more tight-knit college community within the University, the Residential College was a perfect fit. Located in East Quad and home to 900 stu- dents and 60 faculty members, the Residential College, or RC, was a unique four-year liberal arts program under LSA. " The RC ' s mission is to enable students to develop their intellectual interests and creative talents in an environ- ment in which they can find their own voice and relate learning with doing. What this means is that RC faculty challenge students to take the initiative in shaping their own educational experience by participating actively in curricular and extra-curricular activities, by thinking critically about what they are learning and doing, and by engaging with the outside world, " commented RC director Thomas Weisskopf. " I ' m really glad I chose the RC. I love the way all of my classes are discussions, " said John Park, an RC sopho- more. " This allows a lot more interaction with professors. Once, when I skipped my seminar, my professor actually came to my room and knocked on the door. That taught me an important lesson as a freshman, and made me realize how different RC classes were from other programs in the University. " Among some of the unique and impressive pro- grams offered in the RC was the intensive language pro- gram, offered during the school year. Whether students chose Spanish, French, German, Russian, or Latin, the program entailed eight credits and an eleven-hour per week class load. After taking such classes, many residential col- lege students went on to study abroad. Either way, such an intensive program guaranteed attaining a great degree of fluency. " I ' ve heard people talk about RC students, and how crazy and weird we are, " said Marcia Lee, also a sopho- more in the program. " We don ' t really mind people think- ing that. We are just a bunch of especially open-minded and friendly students. Like everyone, we like to have fun. " " If we wanted, we wouldn ' t even have to leave the building, " commented Park. With classes and office hours taking place in the building, a separate stude nt govern- ment, many social activities and gatherings, and even a snack bar of their own, one could definitely have a great time without venturing out of East Quad. Students had a very close community, while they could also enjoy being a part of a larger university setting. " The small classes and many social events allow us to get to know each other very well, but I definitely don ' t limit myself to only interacting with students in the RC, " said Park. Although the RC was a four-year program, stu- dents often moved out of East Quad after two years. Some went on to choose other majors in LSA. It was not uncom- mon for students to receive two degrees, one from the RC, and another from the major of their choosing.

" -.1 NSIAN Staying Afloat STUDENTS ASSESS THE UNDERGRADUATE EXPERIENCE Often known as the best of the public " Ivies, " the University was committed to providing its students with the greatest of amenities. The problem with being a part of a vast and ever-changing college metropolis was the tendency to view the University as impersonal, opaque, and unhelpful in reaching the available resources. Starting in the 2000 winter term with President Lee Bellinger, the University promised to improve the undergraduate experience. Solutions offered were better navigation of campus resources, integration of separated learning communities such as North and Central Campus and the undergraduate and residential schools, and a layering of students, faculty, and communities. As encouraging as the President ' s Commission on the Undergraduate Experience was, the National Survey of Student Engagement in 2000 still found students dissatisfied with faculty contact, the spacing and resources offered at the residence halls, and the adequacy of the advising and informational services. " After miscommunication over when a class was meeting I had to withdraw, " said sophomore Art . Design student Keith Macdonald. " I ended up going back and forth from the registrar to the teacher at least three times before finally being able to withdraw. I would rather have failed. " Two years later, President Mary Sue Coleman continued to carry the University through the 21 st century with a focus on life sciences, branching from the undergraduate curriculum and bioinformatics program to the construction of the Biomedical Sciences Research Building. The Health Science Scholars program, which had its pilot year in 2001, was especially centered on bringing together undergraduates with professionals from various fields and, as a small residential program, created support systems among the students. " 1 think it ' s a really great program with a lot of potential, " said sophomore student advisor Kristen Leutheuser. " Our diverse program is still growing and could go many different ways although there are a few details that need working on. " While there were great strides in improving the undergraduate experience, the University still remained looming and passive for many of its incoming students. BY KATHRYN TORRES ACADEMICS 93 Beyond _ etiremen EMERITUS PROFESSORS CONTINUE TO INSPIRE WITHOUT PAY The most influential professors are easily discernible. Students often choose careers because of the extent to which these professors affect them. Students remember them many years down the road for the passion with which they teach. And many years down the road, many of these professors remain teaching at the Univer- sity without pay. The University ' s emeritus faculty is composed of dedicated men and women who remain active in instruction and or research even after their paydays have come to an end. Bill McKeachie, professor emeritus and research sci- entist emeritus in psychology, was such a professor. Author of " Teaching Tips: Strategies, Research, and Theories for College and University Teaching, " McKeachie was recipient of the University ' s Michigan Psychological Association Distinguished Psychologist Award and taught at the University since 1946. When he wasn ' t teaching one of numerous psychology courses, McKeachie toured nationally and internationally lec- turing to students and faculty on his book. In agreement with his novel, McKeachie believed several elements were essential for a professor to be most effective. " The best thing a professor can do is be enthusiastic, and really care that a student learns, " he said. " I am a humanist, and believe that one ' s life has a real impact on other people. Teaching is a great way to do this. " When McKeachie was invited to speak at a renowned institute in Australia, he discovered evidence of this truth when the head of the psychology department invited him to dinner. As it turned out, his dinner partner was a former student whose future had been changed by McKeachie ' s instruction in introductory psychology. He had planned to go on to medical school, but after McKeachie ' s course had instead gone on to get his Ph.D. in psychology. Other factors driving McKeachie ' s devotion included his students ' inquisitiveness and insight. " Just last week, " he said, " a student asked me a question that I could not answer. I had to look it up when I got home! We ' ve always had good students-very curious and altruistic, if you give them a chance. " To emeritus professors, teaching was rewarding in ways beyond pay, and in venues beyond the classroom. Stimu- lating ideas enriched meetings, discussions, and office hours. Teaching what they loved rendered work into entertainment. Charles Cares, Ph.D. professor emeritus in resource ecology and management in the School of Natural Resources, was beyond retirement and no longer lectures. Still, he was a regular in the department and helped a student develop his thesis. Cares was continuously involved after his retire- ment. He was director of the Nichols Arboretum for 15 years, and three years after retirement taught History of Landscape Architecture. He also taught courses and numerous seminars in design and planting. Originally a professor at Cornell University in New York, Cares taught in very differing circumstances. He said that both are great places to teach, but that Ann Arbor is definitely his favorite. " [At Cornell], you could walk south of campus and meet a bear, " he said. " Here in Ann Arbor you have to go a little further to find nature. I ' ve definitely con- verted into a Michigan fan, though. " The emeritus faculty populated every department at the University, and was a vital part of the learning environ- ment. Veterans ' teaching styles inspired the future emeritus professors, and new professors gave the seasoned fresh ideas. In the words of emeritus professor Charles Cares, if one had a love of teaching, the learning never had to end: " Teaching is not a job you really have to quit and go out to pasture, " said Cares. " Whether I am participating in meetings or discussions or just checking my mail, I ' ll always be around.

AJcinmusuru photo 98 MlCHlUANENSIAN I ME WIL One of the toughest adjustments stu- dents had to make when entering college was learning how to manage their time. At first, college seemed like a great way to go: one could choose his or her own time and place for classes and studying. But when students also chose to keep a high G.P.A., time management becomes more complicated. One thing three or four years of college teaches one, college veterans said, is to schedule his or her time. For LSA senior Joe Brunner, liv- ing with an extremely organized roommate fresh- man year was all it took. " When 1 was a fresh- man, I was so disorganized. My roommate, on the other hand, kept this calendar in front of his desk with every hour of the day meticulously planned out. At first 1 thought this was stupid, but now I know how well it works, " Brunner said. But if one penciled in all of his or her mid-term preparation on the day before the exam, one may have had to rethink your tech- nique. Engineering junior Will Bellville said that one must " allow yourself time each day of the week to study instead of doing to all one night. " He also stated that for this studying to be worth- while, it is essential that students " get out of the frat house. " One way to make cramming impossible, according to LSA junior CJ Kalinka, was to be more involved. " The more activities you have, the easier time management is, " she said. " When you only have an hour here and there to get things done you have no way to procrastinate. " When first asked how they manage time, many students responded with " not very well. " But these same students seem to have known, at least at some point in their college career, how to get things done. " When I was a freshman, 1 was much more serious and into being a student, " stated LSA senior Colleen Woods. " Now, I fit in time for fun. " Others were still working toward that perfectly balanced schedule. LSA junior Antonia Shaheed spent her time studying and volunteer- ing with adults with reading problems, and still struggled with time management. " Every year there ' s improvement, " Shaheed said, " but (be- cause of my schedule) I don ' t know what fun really is. " The question was, is college all about good grades or about the experience? In the words of Shaheed, " I guess only time will tell. " By Kara De ' Boer VOICES 99 RTAT From a biker ' s point of view, getting around campus was truly an adventure every day. Biking through the hords of students walking to class; jumping curbs and dodging construction work; competing with SUVs and University and AATA buses; finding a vacant lamppost, parking meter or bike rack. All of these were examples of the skills bikers had to master to keep their preferred mode of transportation, without making trips to the emergency room or getting one ' s bike stolen, of course. Yet die-hard bikers never let such things discourage them. Whether it was the desire to get around faster, save gas money, contribute less to pollution, or a simple craving for adventure, they had their reasons. As philoso- phy junior Vishal Garg put it, " Biking rules, even with all the annoying pedestrians and cars in the way. " Biking was only the preferred mode of transportation for some students. Students also chose walking, driving personal cars, taking University buses, or a combination of those. Like many students, Rachel Aerltines, a busi- ness school junior, got around primarily by foot freshman year, but then began to drive a car her second year. Aerltines expressed fond memories of her days on foot. " I walked my whole freshman year. Because I lived in West Quad, everything was close by, so it was easy and fun. " Many others drove their cars right off the bat. Jane Viventi, a communications junior, drove as soon as she came to the University campus. " I drove for both of my first two years here, and that ' s basically how I got around. " Unfortunately, like all choices we made, there was a cost that came with it. " I must have accumulated over $1000 worth of parking tickets. Sometimes, I would get multiple tickets in one day, because it was too hard to find parking. " Other students, who wanted to avoid the troubles of finding parking or walking long dis- tances to class, chose to ride the University buses. Junior Karolina Wesolowski was one of them. As an engineering student who had to commute from central campus to north campus often two or three times daily, Wesolowski was grateful for the bus system. " I rode the buses four times a day, and there were never long delays or huge problems. In the two years that I rode the University buses so far, I feel that it is a great system. The one thing that I think they could improve on is the number of buses during peak times. It gets really crowded sometimes, and that is not fun at all. " University students chose between walking, riding bicycles, riding buses, and driv- ing personal cars to get around. Still others used the city ' s public transportation system, or even scooters. Whatever the preference was, despite drawbacks common to all of them, students were usually satisfied with their choice, and stuck with them as a result.

Stoner photo 1 02 MlCHIGANENSIAN When students looked close enough, they could be sure to find the less fortunate walking right alongside them on the streets of Ann Arbor. Although many chose not to pay attention, it was clear that there was a fair share of people who had to make the tough decision of choosing between food, shelter, and other basic needs. Amy Jo Geurink, a senior English major, noticed that the homeless people in Ann Arbor were paid very little attention. " They ' ve become an invisible part of the population, and aren ' t rec- ognized at all, " Geurink stated. However, it was still undeniable that a combination of factors such as a lack of affordable housing and health care, eroding job opportunities, domestic violence, mental illness, addiction disorders, and simple poverty had rendered hundreds with out a place to call home. There were also students who opened their eyes. " I saw more homeless people than I would have ever expected, " said Carli Hall, a freshman psychology major. The Shelter Asso- ciation of Washtenaw County ran the homeless shelter system in Ann Arbor. In addition to providing food and refuge from the cold through separate shelters for men and women, a day shelter and warming center, they also connected people to resources such as jobs, health care, and other basic needs. According to Sarah Kraft, the volunteer coordinator, " the Shelter Association helped approximately 1,100 people at the night shelters, 250 at the warming center, and provided health care to 400 people over the year. " Although there had not been any seri- ous cases of disturbance, the homeless popula- tion had still gathered a considerable amount of stigma on campus. That was one of the reasons why so many students chose not to see them. In addition, many students also held onto common myths about homeless people. For example, homeless people were seen as violent and likely to commit crimes, lazy, looking for their next drink or fix, or mentally unstable, while in fact, despera- tion seldom led to crime, the majority of people without homes worked, and the reasons behind homelessness ranged from simple to complex, but were never uniform. " It is important to listen to people and not make generalizations about the homeless, " said Tanya Ward, a case manager for the Shelter Association. Both Hall and Geurink were among the students who chose to follow that advice. " I would always smile whenever I passed by, because they were really friendly to me, " Hall said. Geurink, who used to work at the Espresso Royale on State Street, described her experiences with homeless people: " I used to know a couple of homeless people really well. I always slipped them some coffee or bagels. It was cool because I got to know them as people who were struggling with real problems that were real. " Geurink was an example of the students who were fortunate enough to understand that the reasons behind homelessness were varied, but tough and real. " There ' s much more of a story to homeless people than people know or care to know. " By Han-Ching Lin VOICES 103 EANING OF " There is no program that brings so many different people together under one roof than a poetry slam. This is the ultimate up-and-coming Union arts and diversity program. It reflects the current national boom and revived interest in poetry, " said Robb Thibault, program coordinator of Unions-Programs. The idea of hosting a poetry slam, simi- lar to an Open Mic Night event, was a relatively new form of competition and entertainment that gained national momentum in recent years. Since its inception in the mid 1980s, the poetry slam came to describe a poetry competition often considered to be a " lyrical boxing match " or " the sport of the spoken word. " During a typical poetry . slam, there were three teams of four poets. Poetry slams have become a popular form of entertain- ment in over one hundred cities in the United States, and have spread to various international locations as well. The U-Club in the Michigan Union held its first poetry slam on September 21, 2000. The event afforded members of the campus commu- nity the chance to express themselves through poetry. On March 22, 2001, the University of Michigan Museum of Art held its first campus Grand Poetry Slam Finals. Open Mic Nights and poetry slams also oc- curred in the town of Ann Arbor as well. In Oc- tober, these events were held every third Wednes- day at Borders, where the Volume Youth Poetry Group from the Neutral Zone in Ann Arbor came to perform and recite poetry. " Borders enjoys pro- moting poetry in our community, and the Volume Youth Poetry Group is an incredible bunch of tal- ented voices, " said field national events specialist Meegan Kucaj. " They bring so much excitement and energy to their poetry slams, and they are an amazing group of talented young writers. " According to first year student Brendon Eisner, who performed at Open Mic Night on Thursday, September 12, most attendees of the event went simply to " do anything, " be it read poetry, sing a song or play an instrument. Eisner noted that following Open Mic Night, which occurred every other Thursday evening, there was a poetry slam, during which ten students performed for four or five judges. A ranking system was used to evaluate each artist, and cash and other prizes were award- ed to the winning performers. What Eisner found to be particularly interesting was the method by which judges assessed the students; performers were judged by the sound of their voices and the effectiveness of the delivery of their performance. Eisner vividly remembered one student performer, a fellow first year student, who read aloud her poem about the city of Detroit. He also recalled the winning poet, who shared his poem about slaves in South America, a composition that had lines of Spanish language inserted at various points throughout the poem. Open Mic Nights and poetry slams gained positive recognition from members of the campus community. " The poetry slam offers an open mic, a slam, and a feature to the U of M campus, " said LSA senior Caleb Zigas. " But more than that, it has brought together a community you would be hard pressed to find anywhere else on campus.

Tedjosuknumu photo 106 MlCHIUANENSIAN ace On October 1 1, the U.S. Senate passed the resolution that the House of Representatives had approved hours earlier: granting President George W. Bush war-making powers against Iraq. Eternally a base for activist thought and word, the University community responded to the mat- ter with surprising nonchalance. The institution that had founded the Students for a Democratic Society organization during the Vietnam War, which achieved fame for its liberal stronghold at a national level, and has always featured a historically fertile location for rallies (the Diag), remained uncharacteristically silent after the legislation. Despite the notable absence of ag- gressive protests, certain student organizations sought out to advertise and assert their political inclinations. The Muslim Students Association hosted a two-part teach-in with internation- ally renowned activist and autoworkers union president David Sole. As Co-chairman for the MSA political committee, engineering senior Ashraf Zahr announced bold " plans to start a broad-based coalition for peace on campus. " The lecture included allusion to the Vietnam War, pictures of Iraqi children and hospital patients, and a firm anti-war message. The University of Michigan College Democrats also took a stab at hosting a political seminar. Representative Dennis Kucinich (Demo- crat, Ohio) visited campus with his talk entitled " Give Peace a Chance. " Called by chair Rachel Fisher an " honest, thought provoking discussion, " Kucinich actually offered much commentary on the positive political and negative moral ramifi- cations of Bush organizing a war campaign soon before his reelection bid. Other campus-based groups with loud opinions included the Interfaith Council for Peace and Justice. Mostly Christian in composition, this group cited Republican opposition to war against Iraq as its most potent rallying device. Quoting the misgivings of Dick Armey, Brent Scowcroft, and Henry Kissinger, the organization ' s monthly newsletter was circulated around campus, adver- tising its anti-war meetings in several off-campus buildings. Regarding the subject, political science senior Jeremy Stein offered, " I think the recent international aggression from several different Muslim states is making even the liberals com- placent about opposing the war. " History junior Alexis Eigenseher added, " It ' s still tough to forget about 9 11, and it ' s easy to associate that day with aggressors like Saddam Hussein. " In any case, as the Federal government proceeded to take more action, the campus opposition naturally contin- ued to grow louder. By Eric Rajala VOICES 107 Restaurants. Dining halls. Free delivery. Food. These were four of the most important terms used by University students this year. Al- though eating was a great way to socialize and get away from the annoyances of classes, there were many students on campus struggling with the is- sue of food. One of the more infamous struggles was that of the " freshman fifteen. " All freshmen were warned about this dreadful weight gain, but many did not believe that it would happen to them. However, between the late night pizza orders (thanks to free delivery until 4 a.m. by some restaurants) and the increase in alcohol consump- tion, some freshmen gained ten pounds before they even realized what had happened. Some blamed it on their dining halls. As first-year LSA student Jenny Martin stated, " Living in Martha Cook has definitely added pounds to my package. The food is incredible, I just can ' t stop eating it! " Other freshmen came into the year knowing they could not gain the weight. Some students used the irrational approach of crazy dieting or not eating before the nights they knew they would go out, trying to keep their calorie in- take constant. Others were more practical. First- year LSA student Sarah Monsell took advantage of the facilities on campus. " I work out in the CCRB. Living in Markley makes it easy, it ' s so close. I have no excuse not to go, since I walk by it every day. " While some freshmen continued strug- gling with overeating, other students battled with the even more serious issue of not eating. Eating disorders plagued students on the University campus. Students Promoting Education Aware- ness and Knowledge about eating disorders (S.P.E.A.K.) was a student-founded, student-run organization whose main goal was to get into the University community and spread awareness of eating disorders. All members of the organiza- tion have been affected by eating disorders, and wanted to spread support for people who suffered from them. Resident advisors were also available to help students suffering from eating disorders. " They teach us to look out for kids who are show- ing the typical signs, but more importantly for those who aren ' t showing the signs, " said junior Economics and Communications major Smita Kalokhe, a resident advisor in Markley. " We hope that if someone knows a person who has an eating disorder, that they will come and talk to us about it, " added Kalokhe. The School of Nursing held a study with women on campus who suffered from symptoms of eating disorders. In exchange for participat- ing in the research, the women received twenty weeks of psychotherapy and nutritional counsel- ing at no cost. Compensation up to $200 was paid upon the completion of the study. Studies like this were effective because they performed research to further the methods of prevention and recovery, and gave eating disorder patients free treatment. Like that of S.P.E.A.K., their goal was to help students in need to recover.

I The Safe Sex Store on South Uni- versity was a popular store for more than one reason. Besides being a fun store to buy a friend a goof gift for their birthday or the holidays, it also helped to promote safe sex on campus. Selling many varieties of condoms was one way the store did this. They also had promotional offers, such as handing out free gift boxes filled with the newest condoms, tampons and deodorant. Other products sold by the shop were penis-shaped water bottles, sex books, and edible underwear. The store was so well known that students from Eastern Michigan University vis- ited it, even though Eastern had simi- lar stores of its own. Whether students were buying a book on Kama Sutra or their first pack of condoms, the Safe Sex Store was the place to go. By Katrina Deutsch One of the many couples on campus enjoy a meal together.

Alcinmusuru photo :s HHII 110 MlCHIGANENSIAN Plenty of dating occurred amid the vast student population. With a veritable ocean full of fish to choose from, there were lots of compatible matches on campus. While the size of the Uni- versity sustained hope for lonely would-be daters, it was still not always easy for even the most sexy and suave to meet potential companions. Despite that difficulty, many pairings united to bring joy (and sometimes stress) to each other ' s lives. Greek functions were popular meeting settings, which consistently brought lots of males and females together in a social environment. For the upperclassmen, the bar scene served as a simi- lar atmosphere. Alcohol served as a historically successful confidence booster to catalyze a conver- sation. Other dating partners met at house parties or perhaps the more moral venues of classrooms, study groups, clubs, or simply nearby houses. After meeting, a couple was confronted with the question of where to go. Aside from the above gathering spots, campus offered a fairly ro- bust number of options. As academics constantly weighed in on students ' time allotment, the local coffee shops provided cozy study quarters. " I still wouldn ' t consider going to the library a date, " affirmed junior LSA student Janene Boise. Main Street was home to the most exquisite of Ann Ar- bor restaurants, and other dinner options existed throughout campus. Other date options within walking distance included the classically roman- tic Pinball Pete ' s arcade and the State Theatre, which carried mostly independent films. If they appealed to both partners, the competitive Uni- versity sports teams provided enjoyable entertain- ment with their home games. In addition to juggling an academic schedule with dating, students grew concerned about their extended futures. " There basically aren ' t any jobs in Ann Arbor for my field, " said senior engineering student Andrew Stone. " I would like to live close to my girlfriend, but she has another year before graduating. If California calls me, I ' m going to have to answer. " Some students brought long-distance relationships to school. Dealing with separation was difficult, eased with everything from road trips and plane rides to calling cards and instant message chats. Post-graduation plans, especially with the limited job market, put a lingering stress on long-term couples. Still, the strongest relationships found a way to persist. Senior political science major Ben Baer said, " My girlfriend and I are juggling the scenarios where we can move to the same area after finishing undergraduate school here.

Sponsored by the Residence Hall Association, the 12th annual Pre-Class Bash was the last of 10 major events of the RHA ' s Welcome to Michigan Program. Palmer Field transformed into a carnival for the affair. Large tents held various giveaways including pizza, beverages, T-shirts, and toiletry packages for both men and women. The activities included a jousting site and a moon bounce for students to release some of their excess energy from festivities of the prior week. To add to it all, music from DJ (Composite blared in the background, setting the atmosphere for the whole event. " The Pre-Class Bash was a great way to wind down a crazy week, " said freshman Alison Reines. " There were so many students on the field and so many freebies that it was almost a bit overwhelming. I was really surprised that the University put so much effort into trying to make us feel at home. " For the RHA, the Pre-Class Bash also served to get information out to students on how to become involved in the dormitories. " I think that it was a success all around, " commented Dave Ostreicher, an assistant residential hall director of Mosher Jordan. " Everyone seemed to be havin g a good time and hopefully we got our message out that being involved in the dorm can be an exciting and rewarding experience so that something like this can happen again.

FestiFall had something for everybody, including organizations like Circle K and K-grams for philanthropists, Enact for environment lovers, and student government parties for anybody trying to have a political voice at the University. In addition, FestiFall created a visibility for smaller clubs on campus, such as Phi Sigma Pi, a National Coed Honor Fraternity. " FestiFall is very beneficial for small organizations like ours [Phi Sigma Pi] because it gives us the opportunity to promote our organization. In years past, FestiFall has helped us increase our membership numbers as well as our impact on campus, " said Senior psychology major Vita Martelli. Many people attended FestiFall to get a flavor of what the University had to offer. " As a freshman and sophomore, I was too busy with classes to get involved with extracurricular activities, but this year I wanted to do more. Attending FestiFall gave me a chance to explore the University ' s organizations in depth and also meet some really nice people, " said junior design major Kerry Silva.

From snow cone science with the National Society of Black Engineers to European Twister with Alpha Delta Phi, thousands of elementary students bonded with their college pen pals and found out what it was like to be a college student for a day. " The purpose of Kids Fair this year was to allow elementary students to meet their pen pal and get an idea of what college life is like. Basically, the kids got to come and have a great time with a University student whom they looked up to, " said senior engineering major Fernando Yarza. This year, Kids Fair brought in over 1000 elementary students, 800 college volunteers and hundreds of organizations to sponsor booths. Some organizations got very creative with their booths, such as the invisible Hindi writing done by the Indian Student Association, but most organizations just stuck to old-fashioned fun, such as Cartwheels for Fun done by Sigma Kappa and Sigma Phi Epsilon. " The kids really loved the booths involving dancing, flags, candies or snow cones. And the University ' s organizations really showed their colors by all the support they gave us and all of the fun activities they made up for the kids, " said senior history and political science major Cathie Hawke. Idea generation for next year began shortly after the kids fair ended. " The one thing that we need to focus on for next year is getting more volun- teers, " said senior business major Matt Kish.

The event started out early in the morning on March 17, Saint Patrick ' s Day, and went until 2 p.m. the following day. The dancers stayed on their feet for thirty hours, while supporters kept them well-fed, entertained, and inspired. " It was very important to keep the dancers on their feet and always moving. I think that ev- eryone involved did such a great job, " said senior psychology major Mary Rigg. At the end of the day, everyone involved felt a combina- tion of exhaustion and satisfaction.

The show was brought to a conclusion with a lecture by electronic musician Richie Hawtin. The goal of the seventh annual exhibition was to showcase digital art as an innovative but valid medium. Carlos Hinojosa, a senior communications major, had strong opinions about his experience organizing the show: " immedia is an innovative exhibition of cultural expression hindering on technological themes. This annual exhibition displays the utmost potential of unique contributors to the digital arts.

Maker photo on Uisplai) June 8 to September 15, the University of Michigan Museum of Art (UMMA) put on exhibit its collection of Picasso ' s masterpieces. As James Chris- ten Steward, director of the Museum of Art, affirmed in his foreword in the Museum ' s Picasso catalogue, " The Museum is committed to deploying many strategies in order to increase awareness and use of its collections. " Steward noted that the Museum ' s collection and exhibi- tion of Picasso ' s artistic masterpieces was " one step in this process. " He also mentioned in his foreword that Picasso was " one of the visual geniuses of modern times, " and added, " Picasso created some of the landmark images of the twentieth century. " The UMMA ' s Picasso paintings provided visitors with a comprehensive overview of the artist ' s produc- tive career. The exhibition featured thirty-one pieces of Picasso ' s works dating from 1905-1968; it was one of the few university collections in the country, if not the only, which contained such extensive Picasso holdings. Samples of Picasso ' s oil paintings, drawings, sketches, engravings and lithographs adorned the walls of the museum. The works displayed allowed visitors to see Picasso ' s interest in conveying intensity and ' peaceful con- templation ' in his paintings at the same time.

Werner photo KMMP 11,OneY ear n September 11, 2002, the University hosted a se- ries of commemorative events to remember the vi- :ious terrorist attacks that struck our nation exactly one y|ar prior. Activities around campus included discussion aards, a remembrance ceremony at the University hospital, a plaque dedication to the eighteen University alumni who perished in the attacks, and a memorial concert in the Power Center for Performing Arts. The anniversary of September 1 1 in Ann Arbor concluded with a candlelight vigil, organized by the Michigan Stu- dent Assembly. As it was very difficult for students, professors, and other faculty members to cope with the devasta- tion brought about by tragedy, the greater community gathered together on the Diag at 9 p.m. to mourn their shared losses together. President Mary Sue Coleman ad- dressed the large crowd combined of students, faculty, and the larger community with the following words: " The events of September 1 1 have not ceased to stun us, but they must not silence us ... we will support one another as we move forward. " And the University followed through with this notion of moving forward as a community by holding a number of lectures and memorials, and by providing counseling and psychological services to those who needed additional comfort during the distressing time. As Michigan Student Assembly President Sarah Boot described in a letter read at the vigil, the day-long events to observe the anniversary of September 1 1 were primar- ily to " provide avenues for reflection and discussion. " Tears welled up in the eyes of many, especially when the American flag was raised and then lowered out of respect for the victims. The candlelight vigil featured a number of other speakers, among them LSA Student Government Presi- dent Monique Luse, University alumnus and English Professor Ralph Williams, and Ann Arbor Police Chief Daniel Dates. Luse ' s speech, which was particularly well- received by vigil attendees, emphasized the need to end hate and embrace love as the nation continued to recu- perate from the September 1 1 attacks. She stressed that hate crimes merely keep hatred alive. Although guest speakers at the candlelight vigil on central campus spoke of varying experiences and dif- ferent methods of coping with their losses, all built on Luse ' s points of positively moving forward, discarding initial, often inaccurate prejudices and ill-conceived notions, looking beyond differences and helping one another through hard times. Several University students were quick to note the manner with which their diverse classmates and professors gathered together as members of a single community to commemorate the tragedy. " I thought it was great to have so many people who re- sponded to September 1 1 in such different ways come together in one place, " commented first year Engineer- ing student Amy Lees. " It really says something about the strength of our nation. " The student-organized candlelight vigil was a moving ceremony that invited all members of the University community to join and commemorate the shocking events of last year, which have affected us all in profoundly different ways. The vigil, in conjunction with the multitude of events that occurred throughout September 11, 2002, clearly succeeded in bridging di- vides, looking beyond the differences between us and in uniting us through our similarities. Erica Chernick vlENSIAN MLK Da anuary 21 marked a day that was celebrated around the United States: Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. It was a day of remembrance, speeches, and rallies in support of civil rights, and in 2002, affirmative action. " The major affirmative action rally and following protests reminded me about what was important on this day, speaking up for what you believe in, " said junior engineering major Tom Feldcamp. On this particular Martin Luther King Day the Black Students Union clashed with the Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action on the Diag. Both sides held banners and posters while rallying to show how the issue of affirmative action should be presented. " Both sides of the affir- mative action issue were clearly displayed today. I think it was good to have these rallies because we could get our message out to all of the students on the campus, " said sophomore psychology major Monique Luse. Activists also protested and rallied on the streets surrounding the campus Students who were not interested in the affirmative action rallies attended other events, such as remembrance speeches, which were also on the Diag and in different lecture halls. Yet some students either studied or stayed home. " It is not that I do not want to remem- ber Martin Luther King, it is that I had too much homework to do to be attending speeches all day. I remembered him personally instead, " said junior design major Kerry Silva. Whether fighting for what they believed in, hearing speeches, or sleeping late, students appreciated Martin Luther King, Jr. as one devoted to a man who fought so hard to promote equality. Jennifer Lee Two students embrace as they continue to cope and reflect on the lives lost in the September 1 1 ter- rorist attacks.

As students walked by in their istle and bustle to class, many stopped for the candy, cheerful pins, ight orange pins that read, " Finding the Time to be Kind, " and green rds that offered suggestions for simple acts of kindness. The idea was to omote thoughtfulness among students, and help everyone to recognize e beauty of kindness. In addition to these goodies, participating ganizations set up tables in the Diag, each with its own set of fun mes and giveaways.

Backed by the Arts in the Arb program and under the direction of Kate Mendeloff from the Residential College, the play flourished in its second season with eight showings in June. Although the productions in June required audience members to pay minimal fees to see the play, it returned due to popular demand in early September for a free viewing while it was still sunny in Ann Arbor. The special version of Shakespeare ' s love comedy traced the audience through the spacious, wooded arena of Nichols Arboretum. The set of the play was the woods themselves, and scene changes involved audience members walking from place to place. The characters used the backdrop to their advantage. Walking along the path to the next scene, one was not surprised to look up and find a fairy hanging from the branch above or to see faces peering out from the woods. Actors in the play did not just include University students but also children and adults from the surrounding area. Junior business major Sarah Ketvirtis reflected, " I had never attended a moving play before, but I really liked it. The actors were great and it was a nice evening; the play was altogether very realistic and beautiful.

Ever since the University got its own police force, however, campus officials enforced state law and prohibited smoking in the public domain. Last year " Hash Bash " was a product of even more regulations as the city banned vendors from selling on the Diag. Adam Brook organized the event for the last ten years. " The event takes place on the first Saturday of April, " he said, adding that last year ' s Bash involved issues other than the usual marijuana endorsement. Replacing the vendors on the Diag, many bands performed for the first time in Hash Bash history. The bands participated as part of a memorial for two avid supporters that were killed Labor Day weekend at a nearby farm. State law also limited the Bash to one hour of amplified sound. Last year, as always, the hour was used on Friday for an enthusiastic, raucous rally attracting hundreds to the Ann Arbor area. " The city of Ann Arbor is trying to stop the event by enacting more regulations, " Brook said. He added though that from the looks of last year ' s attendance, the infamous " smoke-in " tradition will continue. " People just want to relax, " he said. " And no harm can come from that.

During past years, crowds of anti-gay protesters intervened in the peaceful gathering; this year the event ran smoothly. The Kiss-In offered lesbians, gays, bisexuals, and transsexu- als the chance to " come out of the closet " on the steps of the Hatcher Graduate Library and publicly display their affection by means of a kiss. Organizers of the Kiss-In stated that LGBT people were not usually wel- come to express affection in public; the event gave the gay community at the University an opportunity to do so without discrimination. Goals of the event included ending University support of the United Way Campaign because of its backing of the Boy Scouts of America, which did not allow homosexual scout leaders. Following the Kiss-In, rally protesters continued their dissent outside the Fleming Administration Building. When they found out the regents were not in the building, they went up to the President ' s office and discussed issues with former Interim President Joseph B. White. Representatives from the Defending Affirmative Action By Any Means Necessary (BAMN) also showed their support for the event. Representative Agnes Aleobua spoke at the rally and emphasized the importance of defending one ' s own beliefs and opinions, whether they concerned sexism, racism, or homophobia.

Every year, seniors at the University celebrated their last day of class by streaking through campus. Envious and daring underclassmen joined them on this romp of exhibitionism. While the 2000 Naked Mile featured full-fledged nudity, the following runs had very much toned down. The 2001 jaunt was marred by images of police officers tackling naked students to the pavement. Nine arrests were made for indecent exposure. This year, students received a stern message from the University via e-mail, belittling the event as an embarrassment and again assuring the harshest of consequences for participants. Ever resourceful, determined streakers stripped to various ' decent ' states of undress, from boxer shorts to thongs. The boldest male runners adorned their genitals with socks to deter police intervention. Three arrests were made, but the majority of the group found running in underwear a sensible alternative. Still, LSA junior Zac Peskowitz echoed the sentiments of many when he proclaimed, " The Naked Mile was a debacle. It was an unimpressive display. " The 2002 Naked Mile drew a crowd of roughly 4000, but they witnessed less than 50 ' naked ' milers. Resolute on continuing the long-standing tradition, these students refused to let authority out-muscle a timeless act of rebellion. Nevertheless, this campaign left students with bleak hopes for a future resurgence.

While Veloso took hold of the microphone at center stage, three drummers, a cellist, and other musicians supported him in the background. The drummers proved to be versatile assets and during certain songs they came forward and danced beside Veloso. In reference to Veloso, audience member Christophe Tedjasukmana commented, " 1 felt the energy in the performance conveyed his enthusiasm and passion for the music. " Veloso, in conjunction with numerous poets and thinkers, founded a movement called Tropicalismo. Tropicalismo was merited with redefining Brazilian music. The concert at the Michigan Theater marked Veloso ' s first appearance on the University campus.

Both candidates also campaigned at the pre- game tailgates against Michigan State University. Walk- ing amongst students, they offered a chance for students to shake hands, ask questions, and have more personal interactions. Leading up to the campaign, Students for Gran- holm and Students for Posthumus also campaigned hard, handing out quarter sheets on the Diag and talking to stu- dents about the candidates ' positions. After Engler ' s twelve years in office, Granholm offered a change in leadership. Exhibiting a dynamic leadership style and making clear her support for civil rights, Granholm also recognized that the recent high percentage increases in tuition were unac- ceptable.

Athletic Media Relations By Eric Rajala Sprinting down the Home Stretch The Michigan Baseball team swung into action last season amidst a competitive Big Ten field, coming up short of great expectations. Finishing in eighth place in the conference standings, the 2002 season provided a colorful experience to the underclassmen and polished off some fulfilling careers for several seniors. Highlights of the seasons include road trips to California and Texas as well as an exciting home stand against Purdue to end the season. The Wolverines commenced their season in California, participating in the DC-Riverside RBI Tournament. Against competition, the team salvaged only one win during their spring break trip, a 4-2 win against UC-Irvine in which Mike Sokol smacked two RBI singles and freshman reliever Paul Hammond went two scoreless innings to earn his first career save. Starter Tim Leveque persevered through a rough third inning to earn a fine win, striking out six in the process. The outlook brightened for the team during the following week, as they conquered Iowa three games out of four in the first home series of the season. Korecky and Rich Hill hurled shutouts, allowing only two and six hits, respectively. Trzos earned his first win of the season, allowing only one run. Freshman Matt Collins pitched his first career win during a visit to nearby Detroit, one of six pitchers to contribute to a 10-0 shutout. Things soon took a downward turn for the squad, losing three straight in Minnesota before scraping together a gutsy 4-3 win to complete the series. While pitching was the strongest area of the Wolverines last season, the Golden Gophers were able to outduel the Wolverines for the majority of the face-ofts. Later on in the season, the team split four-game series with Illinois and Ohio State but lost splits with Michigan State, Perm State, and Northwestern. The single highest-scoring game for the team came at home against Eastern Michigan: junior shortstop Brock Koman keyed an offensive firestorm, batting in five runs during a 21-7 victory. The season ended dramatically for the Wolverines with a home series against Purdue. Jeff Trzos struck out nine in a complete game victory to conclude his career. The most dramatic win, however, was in the first game of the series. Trailing the favorites 3-2 with two outs in the ninth inning, 1B DH Mike Sokol smashed a walk-off grand slam into right field for a 6-3 upset. Despite the Wolverines winning three of four close games, however, decisions in other Big Ten games kept the team out of the conference playoffs. 134 MlCHIGANENSIAN Helmets bake in the afternoon sun during a game.

" Our first big win to get us back on track was Notre Dame, " Coach Mark Mees said. At the time of the match-up, the Fighting Irish were ranked fourth in the nation. The Notre Dame win gave Coach Mees his first win over a top-ten opponent. " It actually came down to the very last match to decide the winner, " said Vinny Gos- sain, a sophomore political science major. " We beat Notre Dame 4-3. It was pretty unbeliev- able. We had been saying we wanted a big win, and boy, did we get one. " The team had finally connected as one unit and everyone performed their best to capture the Michigan victory. Following the defeat of the Irish, the Wolverines conquered the Spartans. Defeating Michigan State University 5-2, the Wolverines, with two consecutive wins under their belt, had regained their focus. " Big Ten teams are always great rivals, and we always feel good about beat- ing them. Each of the guys had a number of qual- ity wins during the season and tons of talent, we just all couldn ' t perform together, " Mees said. Individual highlights included senior Henry Beam listing No. 72 of 100 in the Inter- collegiate Tennis Association national singles rankings and earning All-Big Ten honors.

" This group was probab the closest, both in and out of the gym, that we ' ve ever had, " said coac Mark Rosen. The two biggest wins of the season were accomplished at home i Cliff Keen Arena. First, the Wolverines defeated No. 16 Ohio State, an soon after, they conquered No. 18 Michigan State. Michigan beat bot opponents easily in three games. " Killing State was great; we were ver hyped up to play them, " said Jennifer Gandolf, sophomore in the Schoc of Kinesiology. Rosen said the team played exceptionally well during thos matches. Key players in those wins were juniors Chantel Reedus and Eri Moore. Reedus averaged 3.41 kills per game during the season and had season high of 19 kills and 12 digs against Northwestern. Moore was s lected to the 2002 pre-season All-Big Ten volleyball team plus average 3.35 kills per game and 2.31 digs per game. In addition, some very important records were shattered durin the season by Katrina Lehman, the sole senior on the team. Lehman b came the All-Time leading blocker for Michigan averaging 1.37 blocks pe game. That record had not been broken since 1988. " I wanted to leave m mark and an impact on Michigan volleyball, " said Lehman. Breaking th total blocking records for regular and conference seasons as well as bloc assists for regular and conference seasons was quite a feat from a 5 ' 1( blocker when most other conference players in her position were 6 ' 4 " We will miss Katrina for her personality and who she is. She was a gre; senior and four year starter who led by example, " said Rosen. " We always hung out at other players ' houses and went shoppinf out to eat at Max . Erma ' s, saw movies, and studied together, " said Gar dolf. Living close together in houses along State Street helped magni: team unity. Rosen also commented that these women were the kind t gut things through and to battle it out even when they were down. Durin practice, the focus was on improving their ability to compete, with a fa style of play. The team worked hard and by their effort, they earned som great rivalry wins. " We hoped to find the efficiency we needed and to pla to the ability we knew we could, " said Chantel Reedus, a junior in tr School of Kinesiology. " We wanted to leave the season with no regrets, n ' shoulda, woulda, couldas. ' " Unfortunately, the team suffered a few injuries along the way, bi through their tight bonds, they were able to rise above them. Reedus con mented that the toughest part of the season was finding the balance, coi sistency, and focus needed. In contrast, the best part was knowing how the team could and would compete.

They even managed, to become indoor and outdoor Big Ten track champions. Junior Carly Knazze said of the championships, " So many people were injured and it didn ' t look like we could pull it off, but a lot of people stepped up and really put forth effort to help the team. Those meets were the most important because it helped us to reestablish ourselves as the best track team in thej Big Ten. " The team also concentrated on creating a sense of unity among! the members. " At the beginning of the year, our coach assigns the freshmen big sisters to help them with the adjustment to college and with any errands or info they need, " Knazze said of this unity. " We also have team gatherings quite frequently bowling, movies, dinner with recruits. Every Friday we play games such as football, volleyball and soccer with freshmen versus upper class. " This unity gave them the ability to succeed even with all the injuries. The team sent three of its members to the NCAA outdoor championships.

The season ' s highlights included the team ' s 28rd place finish in the NCAA championships in Fayetteville, Arkan- sas, and placing ninth out of ten teams at the Big Ten tournament where the team had several outstanding placers. Sophomore LSA student Alan Webb won the 1,500-meter title, sopho- more kinesiology student Nathan Brannen placed third in the 800-meter run, and 2002 engineering senior Mike Wisniewski took third place in the 10,000-meter run. To open the season the team hosted the Jack Harvey Invitational. Although the meet was non-scoring, the team scored one first place and ten other top three finishes. This was Sour Injury plagues the men ' s track team and causes the Wolverines to come in 9th in the Big Ten Championship, despite high expectations. a positive start to the season, but when LSA senior and captain Derek Applewhite pulled a hamstring at the Invitational, it was a sign of negative things to come. Soon the majority of the team ' s strong players suffered from injury. Kinesiology senior Brent Cummings also pulled a hamstring, kine- siology senior Ike Okenwa, LSA sophomore Nathan Taylor, engineering junior Dustin Gress, and others were also injured. Many teammates participated again later in the season, but were still hindered by their injuries. " Many came back from injuries, " said School of Art senior Andrew Ochs, " but it ' s always hard to come back because the injury is always in the back of your mind. " The team went into the season expecting unprecedented success. Ochs, who competed in the hurdles, said, " We were sup- posed to be amazing. " Webb and Brannen were all-Americans in high school. The half-mile runners, including computer science senior Jeremy Schneider, computer science junior Dan Cooke, and Brannen provided a strong founda- tion for the rest of the young team, who also had every reason to be optimistic. However, in the end the season only left room for improvement. Assistant coach Fred LaPlante said, " We had a young team and a lot of top athletes. We learned a lot that will help us out next year. " In the words of Gress, " We had a few good points that did not work out in the end. We just need to gear up and get at ' em next year.

By Han-Ching Lin and Kristen Fidh The men ' s cross country team wrapped up a strong season at the Big Ten championships, hosted by Indiana. The Wolverines proudly walked away with a third-place finish, falling short to Wiscon- sin and Ohio State. The Wolverines had proved themselves a team to be reckoned with, displaying the talent of individual runners, as well as a strong " togetherness " . Sophomore Nate Brennen (24:06.1) and freshman Nick Willis (24:15.7) led the Wolverines placing third and seventh, respectively, and also earning All-Big Ten Honors. The two, along with freshman Sean Moore (24:55.7) and sophomore Tarn Leach (25:10.9) all ran personal bests. Despite the loss of two All-Ameri- i - HI -ANENSIAN cans, Mike Wisniewski and Mark Pilja, both of whom were major factors in last season ' s suc- cess, coach Ron Warhurst was still confident that Michigan would be contending in the 2003 NCAA championships. Four Wolverines would be returning with NCAA experience " We lost some of the guys who were able to jump out in front, but this year with the experi- ence we had, we were stronger than a year ago. " Another huge factor contributing to Michigan ' s success was the great attitude each player brought to practice and the meets. School of Art junior Nick Stanko, an expe- rienced member of the team and a valuable player throughout the year, felt that working together was their greatest strength. " The team was most definitely a different team from previous years. The group dynamics of t team was what got us through the season, ai it brought us some high team finishes.

The women ' s cross country team glided to a successful 2001 campaign, led by some talented young runners who showed the promise to elevate Michigan from a successful program to a dominant one. Sophomore Lindsey Gallo consistently led the Wolverines, finishing with the team ' s best time in all six meets. The most impressive day for the Wolverines came at the Big Ten Championships, where Michigan finished behind only national power Michigan State to place second in a highly competitive field. The team continued their tradition of excellence, maintaining their fourteen-season streak of top three finishes at this meet. Junior Jeanne Spink, freshmen Andrea Parker and Edna Kollartis, and senior Katie Ryan accounted for five performances in the top 40 overall. Gallo also spurred the Wolverines on to a second-place finish at the Notre Dame Invitational, bettering fifteen other squads. Her time of 17:47 was eighth overall. Other notable meets team were the lona Invitational at Bronx, NY, the Miami Invitational in Oxford, Ohio, and the NCAA Regional in Indiana. The Wolverines finished seventh, third, and seventh respectively in these sizable gatherings featuring many schools. Perhaps the most disappointing meet for the team was the Wolverine Invitational, in which respectable individual times were only enough to salvage fourth place out of seven schools. The team ' s most distinguished postseason award went to Katie Jazwinski, who received Michigan ' s Big Ten Conference Medal of Honor, a distinction given to graduating student-athletes with the most notable scholastic and athletic accomplishment. Four other Wolverines, Gallo, Spink, sophomore Katie Easton, and junior Jane Martineau, earned places on the Big Ten Academic All-Conference Team for their fine scholastic achievement.

But with a young and talented roster, the Wolverines show promise. In its third season as an official NCAA varsity program, the men ' s soccer team showed much promise and great improvement. Led by head coach Steven Burns and co-captains Mike White, Joe Iding, and Robert Turpin, the team closed out their season with a 11-7-2 record. There were some bumps along the way but the Wolverines pulled out a few upsets, the most exciting of which came during the Illinois game. Fighting through sixteen fouls, two yellow cards and one red card dropping them down a player, the Wolverines beat Illinois 2-1 after all was said and done. There was no lack of heart during the season starting with the base of the Michigan defense, freshman goalkeeper Peter Dzubay and NKNS1AN junior goalkeeper Joe Zawacki. These two play- ers allowed their team to stay in the game when it counted most and gave the offense a chance to find the back of their opponents ' net. Dzubay obtained his first shut-out of the season against opponent Bowling Green, helping the team beat the Eagles for the first time in three meetings. Zawacki tied a school record of ten saves in one game in a barnburner against the Hoosiers. The valiant efforts of Zawacki were not enough to overcome the highly recognized Indiana team, though, and the Wolverines lost in a fierce over- time struggle. In the middle of the season, sophomore forward Knox Cameron was selected as one of the 1 8 nation-wide players for the U.S. Under-20 Men ' s Soccer National Team.

" We came out ong in the beginning of the season setting a tone for the rest of the ason with those wins. They gave us the motivation and confidence we :eded, " said Andrea Kayal, LSA senior and tri-captain. " This was probably the best team we ' ve had. We had seven seniors, starting, to have a group with a lot of experience, " said Rademacher. Cey players for the season were Abby Crumpton, Amy Sullivant, Carly ' illiamson, and Andrea Kayal. " Crumpton, a tri-captain, was crucial to ie offense, as she became one of Michigan ' s career point leaders as well topping most of the Big Ten ' s offensive categories. Sullivant, a defender, as high also in the assists in the Big Ten and almost broke the record of ost starts in Michigan history.

By Erica Chernick Assisting teammate Christine Mantilla with her body ment during push-ups, Chelsea Kroll tells Mantilla to 181 head slightly. Because upper body strength was injury prevention in gymnastics, push-ups were part team ' s regular workout, S. Thomas photo LSA student athlete Chelsea Kroll, a member of the women ' s gymnastics team, considered the new gymnastics complex the " largest, best equipped gym in the nation. " The facility, which was built in 2001, boasted a number of amenities: three vaults; three sets of regular uneven bars; two single bars; a ' trench ' bar useful for spotting; six high balance beams, which allowed each team member to have his or her own beam when training; a new floor exercise mat; free foam pits on every event; and resi-pit landings. The gymnastics facility was remarkably distinguishable from the previous building. The new complex was about ten times the size of the old one, and was fully equipped with exercise equipment. The approximate cost of the new gymnastics facility was $3.2 mil- lion. Funding for the construction of the building came from a $3.5 million donation from Michigan alumnus Donald R. Shepherd, which would be given over the next six years and would include $300,000 for maintenance of the new building. According to Henry D. Baier, associate vice president for facilities and operations, " the new 22,000 gross-square-foot building will include open space for training, locker rooms, exercise rooms and offices. " The new gymnastics complex, made possible by Shepherd ' s gener- ous donation, was the new practice and training site for the women ' s gym- nastics team. The high-tech facility boasted 17,000 square feet of training area, as well as the most up-to-date gymnastics training equipment. An extra 5,000 square feet was home to a training room, offices for the coac ing staff, a locker room, a team lounge, and a study area for members of I : gymnastics team. Members of the women ' s gymnastics team were certainly apprec- tive and grateful for being able to use the new complex. A number of I : student athletes confirmed the convenience of having access to the n i gymnastics building. " We ' re really fortunate to have a facility like th ' said LSA freshman Jennifer Deiley. " 1 know it ' s a state-of-the-art faci i and I know it ' ll help me to improve my gymnastics. " When Deiley ' s fellow team members were questioned about the m gymnastics complex, several found themselves at a loss for words. " Th: aren ' t even words to describe it. ' s amazing, " claimed Kroll. " Michip gymnastics has been a national championship contender for so many ye: ' , but it seemed as though we were missing something that a lot of the ot r top programs had, and that something was a new facility. " Kroll said 1 1 particularly liked the open foam pits because they allowed her and r teammates to train more advanced routines, making the team more cc f petitive. Kroll also noted that the new gym served as an excellent me s by which the University could recruit star student athletes. Overall, Krc ' s response, similar to that of her teammates, was one of genuine enthush n and appreciation. " I love it and I am so thankful to Mr. Don Shephei concluded Kroll. 148 I] MSI AN Over ten times the size of the old facility, the newly con- structed center coasts the most up-to-date amenities, rt was built near the Varsity Tennis Center on S.

By Han-Ching Lin The men ' s gymnastics team proved to be one of the best teams in the nation again, as they repeated a fourth-place NCAA finish. The host Oklahoma won its fourth national championship, with Ohio State and California following, respectively. Led by senior Daniel Diaz-Luong and Justin Toman, the Wolverines showed a strong performance in horizontal bars, parallel bars, floor exercise, the vault, and the strongest of all, the still rings. Five Wolverines, Diaz-Luong, Brad Kenna, Kevin George, Conan Parzuchowski, and Edward Umphrey, went on to the NCAA individual event finals. Diaz-Loung was crowned the horizontal bar champion, also finishing third in parallel bars, while Parzuchowski finished sixth on still rings, and George took seventh on the pommel horse. Toman, who has been successful all around, in NCAA competition and USA Gymnastics meets, received the prestigious Nissen-Emery Award, given to the top senior male gymnast in the country. He was also a five-time Ail-American and two-time NCAA parallel bars champion and was named the 1999 Michigan Male Athlete of the Year after leading the Wolverines to the NCAA title. Among the several exciting matches throughout the season, one of the very memorable ones took place against the No. 5 California Gold Bears. With their season-high score of 212.900, the Wolverines sailed past the Gold Bears, ending a four-year home winning streak. Toman and Kenna led the team, tied for first on the vault and splitting the still rings and parallel bars titles. Junior Jamie Hertza concentrates as he swings his legs on the pummell horse.

Although they posted a strong finish of 25-3 over all and 11-0 in the Big Ten, two meets stood out in the minds of the com- petitors as they finished only 7th in the nation after high hopes. The season high point came fairly early, upon defeating Georgia at home. The win was the first time the Wolverines had conquered Georgia in a dual meet in Michigan history. " Following the meet, everyone was crying. We ' ve come so close so many times, but this time the team showed we had the ability to do it, " said senior co-captain Janessa Grieco, " Georgia is the team we love to hate. " Joy After beating rival Georgia, the women ' s gymnastics team captures the 2002 Big Ten Title. In addition to capturing the Big Ten Cham- pionship, the team competed in the NCAA Tournament. However, they did not post as well of a showing as they had hoped the Wol- verines failed to advance to the second day of national competition. " Sitting in the stands watching on the second day was hard because we felt we should have been out there, " said Junior Elise Ray. " Nationals is like the final hurrah of the seasons. All meets up to that point are basically prac- tice. " While competing at nationals, Ray captured the national title for the beam for her first time in her career. " Winning felt really good. The beam is one event I struggle most at. That day I had a lot of confidence and pulled through, " she said. Ray ended the season ranked second in the nation by Gymlnfo just behind teammate Calli Ryals, who finished No. 1 for national Ail-Around Gymnast. In addition to Ray ' s Michigan accomplishments, she was a member of the 2000 Olympic Gymnastics Team. According to head coach Beverly Plocki, the key gymnasts were Ray as the MVP high scorer in addition to strong com- petitors Grieco, Shannon MacKenzie, and Jody Rosenberg. Plocki said, " They really gave 100 percent every time. You don ' t win championships from a few high scores; it ' s the depth that produces wins.

After progressing to the Fina Four, Michigan, ranked No. 12 at the time, was matched up against then No. 2 Stanford in game one and lost 13-3. However, the Wolverines pu the tough loss behind them to focus their effort on the third place gam against No. 7 Loyola-Marymount. " We did not even think about (Stanford ' s) game. We played a lo better. Our team bounces back from tough losses really well. We knew tha we were capable of winning, but we just did not pull it off, " said senior Deli; Sonda in a University Athletics press release. The Wolverines suffered a 6-4 loss to take fourth place in the tournament. But on the flip side, they left a lasting impression on wha Michigan water polo could accomplish. Scoring for Michigan in the final game were Jen Crisman with t goals, and Mandi Hagedorn and Casey Kerney each with one goal. " Sometimes I need a reality check and remember that we are only a second year program. We wanted to be in the championship game or at least wir third, but we are still very young. We made a lot of huge strides this year but I told the team that we cannot be satisfied. We need to keep takin: baby steps but never be satisfied, " said head coach Amber Drury-Pinto. Other outstanding accomplishments in the pool were capturing th Brown Invitational, achieving a perfect 8-0 record in divisional play ti secure the No. 1 seed for the Southern Division Championships, takin: the Southern Division Championship title by defeating No. 14-rankec Princeton 10-9, and winning the Eastern Championship title for th first time when Jen Crisman scored during the last 3 1 seconds in the firs sudden-death period to down No. 14 Hartwick 7-6. Players could only look forward to the season ahead to see what wouli come of it, and if a title could be within grasp. Drury-Pinto said about th reason behind Wolverines ' accomplishments in just two short years: " S many things have contributed to it. The year of experience we had, the fac that we didn ' t lose a lot of players. I think we graduated three players, so wi had a really solid group returning. We had a great group of freshmen tha came in. All the way across the board the players stepped up, they rose t the occasion. We couldn ' t have asked for anything more.

By Chelsea Anderson Beginning the season with wins over Eastern Michigan, Florida, and Michigan State, the Wolverines had a strong start towards another successful season. The team defeated No. 1 Texas in a nail-biting finish 123-120 after pulling out the win in the final event: 400-yard freestyle relay. The team finished with a record of 3-0 and 1-0 in the Big Ten. Consisting of seven freshmen, eight sophomores, six juniors, and seven seniors, the team was most likely the most talented assem- bled at Michigan in years. " We pulled the best freshman class in the country. That ' s one of the reasons we are doing so well, " said Junior Dan Ketchum. " We have four outstanding freshmen, Davis Tarwa- Jhii.s Dejong, Tyler DeBerry, and Peter Vaderkaay, who are going to make a difference on the outlook of our season. Even though they are freshmen, they have international experi- ence and are excellent competitors, " said coach Jon Urbanchek. In addition to depth within the under- classmen, eyes were also on senior captain Jeff Hopwood and junior Dan Ketchum. Hopwood swam the breaststroke and individual medley, and qualified for the NCAA in both 100 and 200 breaststroke early in the season. According to Urbanchek, Hopwood came back from a past injury stronger and more dedicated than before with the desire to excel. As co-captain, he gave Michigan the needed leadership for good stu- dent athletes. As for Ketchum, Urbanchek said, " Dan is an awesome competitor who will do any- thing for the team. He is extremely strong when it comes to relays and is the kind of guy you want anchoring your relay. " Ket- chum, who was a distance swimmer, also qualified for 200 butterfly and 200 and 500 freestyle in the NCAA. In addition, Ketchum was the Michigan Athlete of the Year in 2001. " After next year, I would like to stay on for six months and try out for the Olympics, " said Ketchum. As for the entire team, they were extremely excited for the hosting of the Big Ten meet here in Ann Arbor. " Win- ning the Big Ten in this pool was a team goal and a huge accomplishment, " said Ketchum. 154 MlCHIGANENS IAN Taken with Narrow i Margins After winning or losing each race by fractions of a second, the women ' s swimming and diving team has high hopes for the BigTen Championship. By Han Ching-Lin A strong bond throughout the season held the women ' s swimming and diving team together. " You would think that spending five hours a day it the pool, living together, and going to school together would cause us to et on each other ' s nerves, but it is just the opposite. Our best friends are Dur teammates and on the one night a week that we go out, we go out with teammates, " said LSA senior Erin Abbey, one of the team captains. Although the Wolverines were not able to overtake the Florida Gators in their season opener, they displayed a strong effort, winning three events in a row, and four total. Kinesiology junior Tealin Kelemen, who took the three-meter diving title, expressed her excitement for the new season. " 1 am excited to see how much we can improve this season, with a new coach and a different angle on the things we need to work on and (improve, " said Kelemen, who went on to win the first Big Ten Diver of the Week Award for the 2002-2003 season. Chris Bergere was the new head coach of the Wolverines ' diving programs. Taking over for Dick Kimball, who had guided the program for 43 years, Bergere expressed his honor and excitement to be working with the Wolverines. At the Nike Cup, hosted by North Carolina, the Wol- verines put on a strong show as they finished in third place, with Kelemen winning the five-meter diving, and Abbey taking second place in the 200- yard backstroke. " I think that our most interesting meet of the season and one that we are looking forward to will be against Notre Dame in February. They beat us by a little every year, but this year we are stronger in certain areas than they are and have an opportunity to challenge them for the win. And as always, Big Tens are the culmination of the season, " said Abbey. " The motto ' on a mission ' makes us believe we can conquer anything if we have faith in our training and in each other. It is what binds us together and sets us apart from our competition. " With the encouragement of her teammates, freshman Elsa Larson pushes herself to break her best time in the breaststroke during practice.

Finally, Giants ' pitcher Robb Nen relieved Tim Worrell in hopes of securing a San Francisco vic- tory. But Nen gave up a two-run double to Series MVP Tony Glaus that secured the game for Anaheim. " This championship was about 25 guys on the field giving everything they had, " Anaheim ' s Mike Scioscia told the San Francisco Chronicle.

This past July, the Detroit Red Wings won the Stanley Cup in ame Five over the Carolina Hurricanes 3-1. The championship came after three disappointing playoff finishes :er winning the emotional, back-to-back Stanley Cups in 1997 and 98. Knowing the team nee ded some change to the roster if it was to be ccessful, general manager Ken Holland made deals to sign three potential all-of-Famers during the summer of 2001 Dominik Hasek, Brett Hull id Luc Robitaille. The additions made Detroit the highest salaried roster the National Hockey League, which made fans wonder how the players ' os would prevail on the ice. With much credit given to coach Scotty Bowman and captain eve Yzerman, the team came together successfully for one reason - everybody had Stanley on their minds. " We were too old, too slow, too ch fat cats, " Barry Smith, Bowman ' s longtime associate coach told e Detroit Free Press. " That ' s what we were told, and these guys were By Kristen Fidh unbelievable. They sacrificed an awful lot, each one of these guys. They sacrificed ice time. They sacrificed personal power plays. They sacrificed a lot of things to make this a team. " Detroit lost its first two playoff games to Vancouver, staring elimination in the face as the tired team groped for motivation. With the return of Yzerman, who missed the last weeks of the regular season and the first two playoff games due to minor knee surgery, the Wings set fire and won the series in six games. Detroit won the series against St. Louis in five games. Winning over archrival Colorado in seven games, the last matchup proved to be the worst in Avalanche goalie Patrick Roy ' s NHL career, letting in six Detroit goals in just 16 shots.

Their desire was to get into the NCAA tournament and finish in the top ten. The season began with five home games which gave the Wolverines a chance to prepare themselves for the Big Ten competitions ahead. The first matches were played against Creighton and the University of California-Santa Barbara which the Wol- verines won 75-66 and 70-64 respectively. Both opponents were picked to win their separate conferences. " Every home game we play is important, " said coach Sue Guevara. With several new freshmen, the pressure to create team unity and to work hard all season was prominent. " We did a lot more team bonding exercises to get to know each other better and to work on our communica- tion, " said Guevara. " The team chemistry was the best ever with the fresh- men coming in and a ton of good effort, " said Jennifer Smith, a junior in the School of Kinesiology. The team promised solid depth. Senior center LeeAnn Bies was " inside as our bread and butter, and good quickness and athleticism on the perimeter. The freshmen will also contribute a ton with the position of point guard, " added Guevara. Bies had an average of 16 points per game and a rebounding aver- age of 8.2 last season and hoped to improve this year. " I am trying to get as many rebounds as possible and to work harder each year. I take pride in what I do and work to accomplish whatever the team needs, " said Bies. As for her basketball future, Bies commented that she would like to pursue a career in the WNBA if possible, or she may look into a professional career overseas. " Basketball has taught me how to be a team player and work with other people. Also, it has shown me how to act in high stress situations and given me chances to see parts of the world I would otherwise never have seen, " Bies added. Another dynamic player was Jennifer Smith, who also played center, pulling an average of 7.8 rebounds per game. " I ' m working to become more consistent and vocal to help out the freshmen, " Smith said. Unique to the 2002 season, the first and hoped-to-be annual alumni game was played. The match-up, which was played following the Michigan State game, consisted of alumni from both schools. The idea, formulated by coach Guevara, was played on February 16 at Crisler Arena in Ann Arbor. The plan for the future was that the team hosting the varsity competition on the Sunday afternoon would also host the alumni game. Big games of the season, in the eyes of the players, were viewed each as a step towards an NCAA championship rather than individual matches. " Fans get into Michigan State and Ohio State games, but the team takes every game individually, " Bies said. On any given day, a team can play to win, but Michigan wanted to be prepared for each competition and did not overlook any one team.

It was one of the largest teams on campus, with over 70 athletes for women. " Rowing required teamwork and cooperation to succeed, mesh- ing individual drive and spirit of the people in the boat. Crew challenged the athletes to push themselves to limits they never thought possible. The sport was demanding, but ultimately rewarding, " said Women ' s crew coach Mark Harthstein. The rowers possessed drive, determination and above all, athletic spirit. This past year, crew was a mixture of hardships and success. Prac- tices for crew started early in the morning, so many rowers experienced sleep deprivation or time management issues. " Practices were so early in the morning that it was hard to get out of bed, yet there was a drive there, a pack among teammates and a will to succeed that led me to get out of bed every morning and face yet another grueling practice, " said freshman LSA student Stesha Carle. Many rowers had time for only 1 2 credits of course study. They practiced early in the morning, went to class, had afternoon practice, went home and completed homework and then went to bed. " It was hard keeping a flexible schedule with crew and there were many times I just wanted to give up. Yet, I got into a groove and found that it was not as hard as I thought it would be, " said junior psychology major Erin Kopocki. More than that, the rigorous crew schedules led these athletes to appreciate their downtime even more. " The weekends were a great time to relax, get work done and party! said Carle. The hub of the crew spirit was centered on competition. It allowed the rowers to understand what they were working so hard for and to try even harder to succeed. " Competition was indescribable. It was the feeling that you are doing something beyond a regular day at Michigan. Coach Mark Rothstein encourages his teammates to row hard during 5 a.m. warm-ups. The team practiced in Ford Lake in Belleville, Mich. J. Weiner photo When you competed, you cared about your team and you worked hard for yourself, " said senior psychology major Julia Boyles. The races for the rowers focused on pride, pride in their team and in themselves. Because of that, Michigan crew team placed third at Nationals. " Competition feels good because you know you are working hard for something, but when you achieve victory, then you can really feel the joy in competing, " said Boyles. The crew teams success this past year was based on their dedica- tion and love of the sport. " There is no better feeling than being part of something larger than yourself, and that is what crew did for me, " said Kopocki.

By defeating the Maryland Terrapins in the 2001 final, the team secured the first ever national championship for a Michigan women ' s team. Women had participated in team sports at the University since 1973, but the field hockey team was the first to bring home an honor that men ' s teams have captured fifty times since 1901. " To represent all the women ' s teams and be the first, it ' s unbelievable, " admitted senior Jessica Rose. The 2002 season gave little reason to disappoint, as the Wolverines recorded a program-record fourteen consecutive victories during a campaign full of gutsy wins by narrow margins. The team bullied its way to sole possession of the Big Ten title, going 6-0 in conference games. This mark was capped by a 3-1 victory against Penn State, then ranked No. 6 in the nation. Junior April Fronzoni achieved a score of 100 career points. Reflecting the selfless mentality of the team, she asserted, " Whoever scores, that ' s great. I ' m not really concerned about my statistics. " Fronzoni was only the fourth Wolverine to reach this tally. The regular season began with a hearty 1-0 defeat to the US National team. Junior Kristi Gannon, a star defender, was matched against her older sister Kelli, a former All-American and alum here. " It was a lot of fun.

The 2002 season ende just one game shy of the national championship, so the team concentrate on each game during the 2003 season to avoid the feeling of disappoin ment. " Those are the games that you want to be in and you can ' t get then back. We remember the feeling we had at the end last year and we don want that feeling again, " said senior Mike Roemensky. In addition to improving on the almost perfect season, the teai was affected by the loss of Mike Komisarek to the Montreal Canadians i late July. " We ' re very disappointed to have Komisarek leave the team this time, " said coach Red Berenson in a University of Michigan athleti press release. " He has had two solid years at Michigan, and he leaves a hug hole on our team that cannot be filled at this late date. " Komisarek was on of the leading scoring defenseman at Michigan and was the seventh NH draft pick as Montreal ' s pick. Luckily, the team filled the remaining ho from Komisarek ' s departure and through their depth and the addition outstanding freshmen they were able to capture some key wins. " I feel th; our team has the right chemistry and talent to do something special th year, " said Roemensky. Freshmen Jeff Tambellini, Danny Richmond, and Al Montoy were all listed among the top 50 U.S. college players eligible for the 20C NHL entry draft. Montoya, who had been fast-tracked through high schoo made quite the impresson in Michigan hockey, as well as in the CCHA. I mid November, Montoya was named the CCHA Rookie of the Week aft stopping 48 of 49 shots against Lake Superior State on November 18 an also was named CCHA defensive player of the week for December 2 aft stopping 57 of 59 goals against Wisconsin and Minnesota. " The underclassmen have had a real positive effect on our tea especially with the chemistry and cohesiveness. Our freshmen and soph mores have such great personality and character that everyone else ju feeds off their positive attitude, " said Romensky. With all the changes and aspirations of winning the college hocl ey showcase, the Great Lakes Invitational, the CCHA Championship, an giving themselves the best opportunity to get into the NCAA ' s and win th title, the Wolverines finished with a winning record. They took second i( the Great Lakes Invitational and ended with a successful season. " Every year is unique because the seniors leave and a whole ne crop of players come in that you can teach and make a part of the tean Every class is different and it is special when you can take so many differei players and mold them into one cohesive unit, " concluded Roemensky . 1 72 " v!-;-!|!C,ANENSIA Sophomore Eric Werner is tripped up by a Notre Dame defenseman as he tries for the goal.

It started innocently enough: in Febru- ary 1996, five University basketball players and one prospect were involved in a car accident. The incident attracted interest only when the SUV was found to be valued over $30,000. The coincidental combination of so many players with the car ' s worth encouraged some general inquiry as to whom the car belonged. The in- vestigation discovered the roots of a scandal that would span seven years, gain national recogni- tion, and potentially damage the University ' s basketball program forever. In March 1997, the athletic depart- ment admitted it was guilty of two unspecified minor violations to NCAA regulations resulting from the monetary contributions of basketball booster Ed Martin. The University then hired a Kansas law firm to investigate the extent of the transfers. After a seven-month investigation, the firm released a 250-page report detailing the extent of the situation. The information within confirmed that Ed Martin had supplied players with substantial funds, and furthermore that Martin and his wife had won the money through illegal gambling at Michigan auto plants. Two days later, Athletic Director Tom Goss fired bas- ketball coach Steve Fisher. Goss ' decision resulted from handwrit- ing analyses conducted during the investigation. According to the report, Fisher had allegedly signed then-assistant coach Perry Watson ' s ini- tials on the complementary ticket list to reserve kets tor Martin. Fisher stated in a press confer- Instead of wondering if the University will again boast a group as talented as the Fab Five, the Michigan community is concerned with the current program ' s reputation will it ever climb out of the hole that former players and booster Ed Martin dug? By Kara DeBoer and Kristen Fidh ence soon thereafter, " President Bollinger said I would get a copy of the report and would get a chance to review the report before the public. " The report was instead released without Fisher ' s knowledge while he was vacationing in Florida. Although Fisher ' s firing insinuated otherwise, at this point no proof existed of the University ' s involvement. Surprisingly enough, the players ' act of accepting the money was not technically illegal. The case remained at an un- comfortable standstill for several years. Besides the University ' s involvement with Ed Martin, no damage would be done until further informa- tion came to the court ' s attention. Beginning in April 1999, the Federal grand jury subpoenaed former players Louis Bull- ock, Chris Webber, Robert Traylor and Maurice Taylor, who were linked by FBI investigation to the scandal. The allegations were clarified, revealing the enormity of the contributions. The outlook for all involved, especially those in denial, took a turn for the worse. First of all, the numbers were aston- ishing. Martin had allegedly transferred over $616,000 to the team ' s stars over a time period extending into some players ' high school years. Chris Webber alone allegedly received $280,000. Secondly, Webber contradicted federal records by blatantly denying the charges before the grand jury. He claimed that he received only small payments and called the government ' s numbers exaggerated and " crazy. " This blunder gained the attention of federal prosecutors. Un- like his testimony, their numbers were concrete; they had no choice but to indict Webber 01 charges of lying on the stand. Webber pleade not guilty and continued to contest charges. Until November of 2002, the debat flip-flopped regarding the University ' s true con nection to Ed Martin. The future of curren coach Tommy Amaker ' s program remained t be seen. But on the seventh of the month, th University imposed penalties on itself, admittin to new NCAA violations. The athletic department forefeited a games won while the four players were on th team, as well as all the seasons from fall 1995 t spring 1999. In addition, the University woul remove all references to victories in writte: documents. Around $450,000 would be returne; to the NCAA in retribution for postseason pla while the four were at Michigan. " There is no excuse for what haf pened, " University president Mary Sue Colema told the Detroit Free Press. " It was wrong, plai and simple. We have let down all who believ that the University of Michigan should stan for the best in college athletics. We have disap pointed our students, our faculty, our alumni an our fans. I am determined that nothing like th will ever happen again at Michigan. Let me si loud and clear: integrity is our top priority. " The athletic department also remove the 2003 squad from postseason eligibility, an the program would be on probation until 200!

I felt like I was art of something so large and important on this campus. My job was to get he crowd riled up and to represent this school through our band. That is hat makes me feel important everyday, " said first-year LSA student Kath- ryn Kozeliski. In the fall of 1898, the tradition began with the first ever appear- nce of the Michigan marching band, a grassroots student-led effort. It grew exponentially into a staple for every football game. " The history of the Michigan marching band is what gives us the aura that we possess. When e take the field, the crowd wants to stop talking and listen, " said Assistant )irector Damon S. Talley. The Michigan marching band did not become so famous without ery hard work. Schedules for the band members were nothing short of rig- rous, with practices everyday and traveling on the weekends. " It became iard to keep up with homework and regular college nuances when you had uch a large part of your life taking up so much time. Yet, the band was my lome, where all of my friends were, so the intensity of the schedule was ecreased by that very important factor, " said senior political science major Christopher Mancuso. The marching band represented a family for many of the students and put a parental spin on the directing jobs. " The band was my child. I respected and loved every one of the band members for their hard work and looked after them like they were my own. That allowed us to have so much fun at practices and at away games, " said Talley. It seemed to be unanimous that the worst part of band and prac- tices was the weather. Too hot, too cold, and too rainy constituted the theme of many practices. " In the summer and at the beginning of the school year, it was so hot and our instruments became heavy. When fall set in, we still held practices in pouring rain. But the worst, the absolute worst, was when it got cold. Do you know how hard it was to hold an instrument in your hands when your fingers were frostbitten? " said junior LSA student Henry Caudle. Whether rain or shine, the Michigan band kept marching into another year of success. It was dedication to their band mates and their love of music that led them to be yet again one of the best bands in the country. Caudle said, " We work hard, we play hard, but above all else, we : love the school, the fans, and the football team and so we were proud to I represent Michigan no matter what. " SPORTS 179 Bodies Behind the Motion By Chelsea Anderson Hands-on experiences always produce the best learning environ- ments. The student training program, a concentration in the Division of Kinesiology and part of the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics, emphasized the importance of hands-on experiences as students had oppor- tunities to work with varsity athletes. The program ' s mission was to develop entry-level allied health professionals who would be contributing members to the field of athletic training. The athletic training program prepared students to work in second- ary schools, colleges and universities, sports medicine clinics, professional sports programs, industrial settings, and other health care environments. In addition, many students extended their training by attending graduate school. " I would like to become a certified athletic trainer in the future and go on to graduate school for athletic training. Someday I would like to have a job as a trainer working for a college team, " Adam Buchalski, Kinesiology senior said. Admission to the athletic training program was very selective. Students applied during their freshman year; once accepted, they were required to complete a three-year competency-based education program. They took classes such as athletic training, anatomy, physiology, therapeutic modali- ties, rehabilitation, and injury evaluation. In addition, student trainers were required to complete 1500 hours of work with at least one women ' s team and one contact sport. A major part of the athletic training program was the experience on the field with teams and coaches. The program, staffed by two full-time faculty members, ten full-time certified athletic trainers, and three graduate student certified athletic trainers provided care to the University ' s athletes with the aide of student trainers at practices and games. The clinical expe- riences provided the students with opportunities to apply their classroom knowledge in real situations. The most common injuries I ' ve treated are sprained ankles, fingers, and ACL and MCL injuries, " Buchalski said. " The injury I remember the most occurred during the women ' s Big Ten swim meet last year. One of the divers, when diving off the high dive, lost control of her twists and turns and hit the water face first. She had been going really fast causing her to scrape up her face on impact, get a concussion, and spit up blood. She had ' rushed to the ER. " Coaches and athletes also appreciated the hard work and dedicatior of the student trainers. " Trainers help with the rehabilitation of injurie and use ultrasound, electro-stimulation, and stretching exercises, " Debbi Belkin, women ' s soccer coach, said. She added that the students did a grea job assisting the head trainer in the training room taping ankles and othe body parts. She raved about how helpful they were. " The training room could not survive without their valuable help, " Belkin added. Alicia Boswell, a sophomore volleyball player, had student trainer assist her with taping wrists and bandaging blistered feet. " Having someon work with you who is your own age often times lightens up the atmosphen of dealing with injuries, " Boswell added. Student athletic trainers had the experience to work with several dii ferent sports under the supervision of a head trainer. During each opportu nity they faced different injuries and experiences. " My favorite sports I ' v worked with are football, tennis, and hockey, " senior John Ostrowski said " In high school I was not very athletic, but loved sports, so this progran allows me to interact with athletics. " Ostrowski concluded that the bes part of the experience was embracing all the excitement of the atmospher down on the field. iSu ANENSIAN A student trainer puts muscle contraction strips on a soccer player ' s back.

College jameDay, a show that took place only at the biggest college football games of he year, was 90 minutes of straight college football mayhem. Herbstreit, a former 3hio State quarterback, was the source of much tension for Wolverine fans. Ibrso called Florida State home for a number of years. He not only coached the 5eminoles, but also was a star member of the team back in his prime. ESPN College GameDay festivities began August 30 on the corner of 5tate and South University. Students could attempt to catch or throw a pass, r even kick a field goal. Additionally, they could get their pictures taken with ardboard cutouts of Fowler, Herbstreit, and Corso. If students accomplished all )f these tasks they could walk away with a two-dollar Best Buy gift card. " All hat work and I only get two dollars, " first year LSA student Troy Mclnally said, discover Card put all of the pre-College GameDay " games " on, and one could valk away with prizes like T-shirts, Frisbees, and lanyards.

To wrap up Friday night, Fowler and Herbstreit announced the ESPN radio show from the lawn of the Museum of It Some fans arrived at the Big House by 9:00 a.m. on Saturday to catch a glimpse of College GameDay. The Wolverines had a 9-3 record when GameDay :ame to campus for the game, and the show only came to games where the elite squared off. Filming commenced at 10:30 a.m. in the southeast comer of the Big rlouse. Despite being some of the most watched football analysts by University students, the GameDay trio had no confidence in the Wolverines. " The Wolverines look good this year, but I ' m going to have to go with the Huskies on pis game today, " Corso replied to Fowler ' s question about who would win the pontest. The game was one of the most exciting ever seen by University students. Throughout the game, there was a total of six lead changes.

With pride and talent, the Michigan cheerleaders led students, alumni, and fans in supporting University athletics. Funded by the athletic department, the squad was broken into three divisions Varsity Co-ed, Varsity all-female, and Junior Varsity. " Some of the girls who make the team prefer participating on the all-female squad because that is what they are used to from high school, " squad captain Brianna Lupu said. " For example, a girl might be used to being a base, and all the girls on the co-ed squad are flyers. It is a personal choice; neither is more privileged. " Whether they were supporting men ' s basketball at Crisler Arena or Volleyball at Cliff Keen Arena, there was a cheer squad at every home event. Additionally, the varsity co-ed squad sent three men and three women to all Big Ten away games, and all cheerleaders supported the men ' s basketball team at tournaments outside Ann Arbor. Coached by Pam St. John, a former cheerleader who was a member of one of the first squads that admitted female members, the squad travels to the Universal Cheerleaders Association national competition in Daytona Beach every winter. " It is such a fun, bonding experience with all of us being together for five days on the beach, " Lupu said. " The squads that you see placing in the top-ten on ESPN are squads like Louisville and Kentucky who have their entire cheerleading team on scholarship. Michigan isn ' t like that. " Explaining that the University has neither the facilities nor the training that nationally recognized collegiate cheer teams hold, Lupu said: " We compete more for fun. " Rather than having competition poised at the highlight of the cheerleading experience, Lupu and the squad hold their first practice, or their " Welcome Practice " as the highlight of the season. Filled with games and karaoke and graced by representatives from the National Cheerleading Association who teach the squad new chants and pyramids, " it brought together people who would never have talked outside of practice and set a great dynamic for the rest of the year, " Lupu said.

But, heading into the postseason, the Wolverine faithful felt a litt empty looking back over the season. Despite beating Washington in their home opener and six of the eight Big Ten opponents, including a 40-3 trouncing of Michigan Stat the Wolverines lost when it counted the most. Facing Notre Dame for th first time since 1999, and the last time for another four years, the Tyron Willingham-coached Irish beat the Wolverines 17-16 with a team th; earned the respect of football fans across the country. Then, on Homecon ing, the eventual No. 8 Iowa beat Michigan 34-9 its worst at-home lo since 1967. " Any type of loss is bad, especially at home, " senior Victor Hobso said. " We had goals coming here, and we didn ' t reach them. " Confidence was gained after the Michigan State win, but becaui of Spartan team troubles such as the suspension of starting quarterback Je Smoker and the firing of coach Bobby Williams, the victory just did ni taste as sweet as it usually would have. " It was not the typical Michigar Michigan State game, " Michigan coach Lloyd Carr said. Then came the Buckeyes. Ohio State was undefeated and Mich gan had a chip on its shoulder a big one. The Wolverines outplayed archrival in every offensive category including first downs, rushing yard passing yards, time of possession, and yardage on punt returns. But Mich gan was not able to score a touchdown when the team was in the red zon And, because the Wolverines had to settle for a field goal all three time Ohio State walked away with a trip to the national championship Fiesi Bowl despite their shortcomings.

" We have a good, deep program and wanted to take advantage of that. Everyone says that we are a smash mouth football team, but we have the athletes to go down the field and stretch it. We did that today. " Facing quarterback Rex Grossman and a team that was slated to be faster, more accurate and better prepared, the Wolverines brought their tra- ditional offense - 50 percent running and 50 percent passing - and emerged victorious 38-30 and ranked ninth in the nation. Michigan kicker Adam Finley secured the final score in the third quarter with a 33-yard field goal that hushed the predominately-Floridian crowd.

" First of all, Alain Kasharma and Grant Bowman, those guys came up with a great play to contain the reverse and really force a mistake, " Michi- gan coach Lloyd Carr said. " Of course, Victor did come up with a play. I knew he was fast, but he looked pretty fast to me running down that sideline. Even had things gone badly for us after Victor ' s penalty, that penalty was not a dumb penalty, it was an aggressive penalty. " Throughout the game, it was junior Chris Perry running swing plays into the end zone that ultimately gave Michigan the upper hand. Scoring four touchdowns and voted game MVP, Perry finished the game with 85 yards on the ground, and his 28 carries matched his career best. " We ' ve been working on swing passes all year but just recently started letting us use them, " Perry said. " I took advantage and tried to use them the best I could. When I saw [senior tailback B.J. Askew] got a broken hand [in the first play of the game], I knew that he wasn ' t going to do the same things he has always done, so I knew I would have to pick up my play as well as everybody else. " The victory was Michigan ' s 10th of the season, following a trounc- ing of rival Michigan State and a horrific loss to the Buckeyes 14-9 after a miscommunication resulting in an Ohio State interception on the last play of the game. Despite losing and then watching the Buckeyes go on to win the National Championship over Miami (Fla.), the 10th win proved all the Wolverines needed to return home satisfied. " Today was a huge win for us, getting our 10th win, " senior Benni Joppru said. " We had some disappointing losses this year, especially to Ohii State, but the ten wins are good. We had a top-five schedule. Any time yoi can get ten wins against our type of schedule, it a successful year. " D.

Qranafa photo omprised of nearly 25,000 undergraduate students, the University x provided countless ways tor students to feel part of a smaller com- munity, Students with a creative flair could join one of several a cap- pella groups, orchestras, or drama troupes; activists could team up to make a difference in political or philanthropic issues. For many, the time they sacrificed had unexpected rewards: student organiza- tions not only supplied the University with a vibrant cultural atmo- sphere, but also supplied their participants with life-long friends. ORGANIZATIONS 193 Audrey Lance. Alexandra Acnen, Lindsay Jdley, ReBekah MoeBer. L. Proux photo By Erica Chernick The University ' s Sexual Assault Prevention and Awareness Center (SAPAC) was an organization that aimed to end all types of sexual violence, he it sexual assault, dating domestic violence, sexual harassment and stalking. The mission of SAPAC, as expressed on its wehsite, was " To provide specialized and comprehensive educational and supportive services for the University of Michigan community related to the above named forms of sexual violence. " University students, staff, faculty and their families, some of which included crisis intervention, outreach services, volunteer-led workshops that concentrated on sexual assault, domestic violence and sexual harassment, counseling, advocacy, consultation, training, aware- ness and prevention. The organization also offered a 24-hour Crisis Line; skilled female volunteers were available throughout the day to give confidential information and other related services to survivors of sexual violence. These volunteers also provided information and support mechanisms to friends, partners and relatives of survivors. SAPAC also offered a multitude of volunteer opportunities in networking, publicity, activism, peer education, the Crisis Line and in the outreach programs. Audrey Lance, Co-Coordinator of the Peer Education Program at SAPAC, described the organization ' s purpose in the community as threefold: " education, counseling, and activism. " With regard to edu- cation, SAPAC had professional and volunteer educational services one of which was the Center ' s Peer Education program. This prograrr consisted of a group of about twenty volunteers that led workshops or dealing with sexual violence. This year, SAPAC held its annual Speak Out, which tool place in October. Speak Out was a safe arena in which survivors o sexual crimes of all kinds could share their experiences in a sympathetii environment. During the week of Speak Out, SAPAC also hosted thi Clothesline Project and the Silent Witness Exhibit. The latter was : compilation of wooden silhouettes from the Ann Arbor Junior League each silhouette had on it the story of a woman who died from some kinc of sexual offense. " Speak Out is amazing, " commented Lance. " It reall breaks the silence around issues of sexual violence, something that need to be done more often. " SAPAC undoubtedly had a considerable impact on the Universit community. It provided an accessible center that strove to end sexua violence through education, awareness, and activism. Lance said " SAPAC has changed my life in numerous ways, affected my caree goals, and has provided me a space to challenge the realities of issues c sexual violence that we as a society face everyday.

This organization was open to anyone and roughly 60% of the past year ' s members were non-Japanese students. Since JSA was primarily a social group, many events centered on bringing people together. Every March JSA planned the Japan Cultural Festival. This year, the event reached an attendance of over 600 people. The festival offered samplings of traditional Japanese cuisine and presented karate demonstrations, bonsai displays, a shakuhachi performance, traditional toys, calligraphy, kimono demonstration and a tea ceremony. This year, JSA started the Language Exchange Program. The goal of this program was to provide American students who were learning Japanese and graduate students who desired to practice con- versational English a place to practice their respective languages in an informal atmosphere. Sessions were held bi-weekly and included about fifty people. Other events included a Welcome BBQ, Karaoke Night, Movie Night, and a Potluck Party. Ayumu Urata, a Business School senior reflected on JSA, " Integrating the non-Japanese group and the Japanese group through various events was the biggest challenge we faced every year. This year ' s active membership, however, made such a challenge easier for us. " With such energetic participation, JSA looked forward to planning more exciting events for its members and the com- munity. Lakeisha Daws. Siabhon Sturdivant. Orehemetse Marang, Andre Brown.

The members of this organization learned the fundamentals of group dynamics through Leadership Laboratory training. Each week cadets learned about team- work, physical fitness, and other aspects of being an officer. Like other organizations, AFROTC serves as an addition to regular classes. When describing AFROTC, LSA senior Trevor Gunderson stated, " The best part is that we have peace of mind knowing we are entering an exciting career as an officer in the United States Air Force as soon as we ' re done with college. " As well as laboratory training, cadets participated in many activities on campus. AFROTC Tri-Service Colorguard team members raised the American flag at the Big House and at basketball games. Each year members congregated at the Michigan League during February or March to partake in the Tri-Service Military Ball. This event allowed all members to interact in a more relaxed, social-oriented atmosphere. One of AFROTC ' s most notorious events was their haunted house, a charity fundraiser. This year, AFROTC members rappelled off the Dental build- ing for the first time. Traditionally this had been an opportunity for Army ROTC. Having the physique to accomplish this was due in part to cadets undergoing Field Training during their sophomore or junior year. This " boot camp " took place in Texas or Florida and lasted about By Kim Schaich one month. Cadets were also able to participate in base visits, skydiving, and glider training during this time. Other exciting events this year included the Great Space Adventures, the Honor Guard national competition in New York, and Qualifying Ml 6s. Engineering sophomore Tomoyuki D. Ono said, " The Air Force ROTC taught me things that changed my life. My life revolves around ' Integrity First, Service Before Self, and Excellence In All We Do ' and that ' s the way I like it. " Air Force ROTC members enjoy a night out bowling. This was just one of many fun-filled activities AFROTC planned throughout the year. photo courtesy AFROTC ORGANIZATIONS 197 At the Fall concert, the Glee Club sings to an intimate crowd. This performance was held in the University Museum of Art on December 7. 5. Tedjasukmana photo In anticipation, Women ' s Glee Club members wait (or their turn to perform. Different vocal groups on campus often came together to give performances, S. Tedjasukmurut pholo MELODY IN MOTION By Lauren Rutledge The Women ' s Glee Club sang into another season of musical tradition and excellence. Participation in the Glee Club was contingent upon selective auditions, giving the group a competitive edge. The 50- member club, directed by Dr. Sandra Snow, was the University ' s official women ' s choir ensemble. Julia Arciero, President of the Women ' s Glee Club, emphasized how much the direction of Dr. Snow meant to the group. She said, " It ' s evident that Dr. Snow holds a special place for Glee Club in her heart, and it shows in all she does. She is a talented conductor who gives so much of her time and energy to making our Club a successful one. " After months of practice, the Women ' s Glee Club gave one con- cert each semester in the Museum of Art. The fall concert included pieces such as Benjamin Britten ' s Ceremony of Carols, Palestrina ' s jesu! Rex Admi- rabilis, three selections from Persichetti ' s Winter Cantata, and several other classical pieces. The concerts provided a time for the women to showcase their talent and hard work not only to members of the University commu- nity but also to friends and family, who came to see them from all over the country. In addition to campus concerts, the Women ' s Glee Club also performed at various tailgates before home football games. They often sang songs such as The Victors and The Yellow and Blue to raise the spirits of Michigan fans and to collect donations to fund their operations and activities. The group also sponsored Women ' s Vocal Arts Day, an annual event in which Michigan high school women were invited to participate in a workshop atmosphere with the Glee Club and to listen to them sing. This year, the Women ' s Glee Club worked especially hard to prepare for a two-week trip to the Pacific Northwest in May 2003 with the Men ' s Glee Club. As part of their tour, the singers planned to visit Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia. They would sing in several perfor- mance halls in these areas. The women were sure to spend plenty of time getting to know one another outside of the musical venues; they often went to each otlv er ' s apartments or houses to watch movies, and went out to Pizza House once a month following their rigorous rehearsals. They also showed their commitment to the community by participating in at least one service event per year. This year, they volunteered for a day at the Ronald McDonald House for children. Arciero felt strongly that Women ' s Glee Club offered her so much more than simply the music. " I ' ve been in Glee Club for all the four years I ' ve been at the University and have loved every minute of it, " she explained. " I look forward to going to rehearsals each week to be around all my friends and to forget about the stresses of school and homework for a couple hours while we make some amazing music with each other.

Tedjasufcmona photo The Indian Students Association (ISA) was composed of 300 active members on campus. ISA strove to enrich the cultural atmo- sphere at the University through the celebration of Indian customs and values. In hopes of serving the Indian community, ISA planned many events each year to expose members and the community as a whole to Indian culture. A sophomore in engineering, Divya Parambi describes her experience, " The ISA has made me even more proud of my rich cultural heritage by continuously celebrating the customs and values. " Annual events began with Diwali, an Indian festival of lights. Taking place during the fall semester, Diwali was one of the biggest events for ISA and provided cultural shows, traditional prayers, an Indian dinner, and a dance party to Indian tunes. The winter semester was kicked-off with Tarang. Tarang was celebrated on the first Friday of the winter semester and included traditional Indian dances. Holi was the Indian festival of color and was celebrated in the spring. This event was filled with games and competitions including Rangoli, a traditional Indian design. Face painting, Hindi Karaoke, an Indian dinner and a dance party were also part of this event. As an active organization throughout the year ISA helped make the University a comfortable home for its members.

Composed of mostly undergraduates, PSA existed to sponsor Persian cultural and social events. The organization operated under the belief that it was important to provide an outlet with which students could gain a greater under- standing of Persian culture. Mahshid Pirzadeh, a senior in Industrial and Operations Engineering, holds this belief to be true and stated, " We take great pride sharing our culture with campus through the various events we plan and participate in. " PSA was a non-religious volunteer student organization. As such, members strove to support fellow students at the University as well as in the surrounding community. By Kim Schaich The Persian Student Association ' s five-member executive board was responsible for planning the organization ' s events. The biggest event for PSA was their Annual Culture Show, featuring skits, dances, and musical acts. Attendance at the PSA Culture Show reached 1,000. Another event PSA participated in was the Tour of the Middle East, which provided insight into the various cultures in the Middle Eastern region. Costumes, art, and informational displays combined with food booths and performances to give those interested in Middle Eastern cul- ture first-hand experience without traveling thousands of miles.

They met every other Sunday at the Alumni Center in order find ways to build lifelong relationships between stu- dents and the University. This was accomplished by strengthening ties between the students and alumni in order to build pride in the Uni- versity ' s established tradition of excellence. Senior history major Jim Notter said, " The most unique part of being in SAC is that we get to work closely with the Alumni Association and see how it works. " SAC helped coordinate activities like Parents Weekend. For this event they planned activities for Friday night, October llth, and the brunch on Saturday, October 1 2th, before the football game, and then found fun things for our parents to do on Saturday night. The plans for Homecom- ing included several Diag days and a pep rally before the football game. To organize the Student Leadership Connection, they worked with the Student Alumni Leaders to plan a brunch where students and alumni talked about life after college. SAC could also be found participating in intramural sports and finally relaxing at their annual retreat Michigania, in northern Michi- gan. Other events included Rock Bowl, hay rides, and laser tag. In the spring, they presented the Student Legacy Award at the Michigan Leadership Awards Ceremony. Members considered SAC a rewarding experience because they worked to improve the quality of student life. Members had the advantage of forming relationships that could aid them in future endeavors. The organization hoped that future alumni would recognize their important influence on the University. ZUZ MlCHIOANENSl IAN Front Row: Elise Freimuth. Meredith Palen. Lisa Yange.

SSA provided a place for Singaporeans to interact among each other. However, 15% of its 1 10 members were not Singaporeans. There were seven executive board members who planned fun cultural events for the academic year. Events this year included a Mid-Autumn Festival in Septem- ber. About 200 people came to this event and participated in lantern carrying and mooncake eating. In November, the first Telematch event; occurred. This was a sports and games competition between SSA, members and in some instances they challenged other organizations on j campus. During the winter semester SSA celebrated the Chinese New Year. This event gave members insight to a typical Chinese New Year celebration in Singapore. In addition, those unfamiliar with Singapor-i can culture were able to gain a better understanding of the significance of the holiday for Singaporeans. 206 MlCHIGANENSlAN Senior economics major Andrew Bnx displays his ultimate frisbee skills.

HSA met regularly at Thanos ' Lamplighter to discuss activities that promoted multicultural exchange while maintaining the educational experience of University students. Junior history major Nancy Chinonis said, " Being part of the Hellenic Student Association has helped me to become a better person, has enhanced my leadership abilities, and has given me the opportunity to learn many things about my background that I had not known. " HSA began this year with a picnic at Wheeler Park. For the past couple years HSA organized a Hellenic Cultural Month, and this year it focused on Greek music. There were guest lecturers from Cornell University and the University of Missouri-St. Louis who spoke about aspects of Greek music. Live performances included the Pittsburgh Byz- antine Choir and Rembetiki music hosted by the Firefly Club. HSA participated in the Tour of the Middle East and co-spon- sored the Balkan Film Festival. They collaborated with the University Foundation for Modern Greek Studies to set up a series of lectures about the Byzantine Era. Other events included a Never on a Sunday Dance, a Tavli (Backgammon) Tournament, Greek cooking lessons, and Greek folk dancing lessons. The success of HSA ' s events were attributed to their entertaining nature. Sophomore political science major Alice Shukla described her experience with HSA as meeting " a great group of friends that works together to increase awareness about our culture and traditions throughout campus, to Hellenes and phil-Hellenes. My favor- ite HSA memories are our trip to Montreal, and our efforts to recruit volunteers for the 2004 Summer Olympic Games in Athens, Greece.

Qrunutu photo ARRANGING ACTIVITIES By Lauren Rutledge The University Activities Center (known on campus as UAC) brought the best of student entertainment to the University. Home to over 15 committees, UAC spent over 30 years developing quality entertainment and educational programming which students enjoyed. It was comprised of roughly 450 total members, although an estimated 20,000 students attended a UAC event this year. During the fall semester, UAC sponsored popular events such as the Rude Mechanicals ' production of Taming of the Shrew, the Amazin ' Blue and Pops Orchestra fall concerts, MUSKET ' s production of Titanic, a lecture by White House correspondent Helen Thomas through the Speaker Initiative, and several films through Big Ticket Productions. The winter semester added more concerts of some of the above groups, as well as Impact Dance and Comedy Company per- formances. M-Flicks presented popular films, such as Red Dragon and American History X, in the Natural Science Auditorium. UAC ' s wide range of activities drew spectators and enthusiasts from all crowds, and the performances and events were often packed. This year was also important for the Michigan Academic Competition team, which won its third consecutive national College Bowl championship. UAC also sponsored the Every Three Weekly, a satire newspaper very popular on campus. Brian Netter, President of UAC and senior industrial opera- tions engineering major, felt that the committee gave him an oppor- tunity to better the University community. He said, " Serving on the executive board of UAC has allowed me to give back to the University and to try to make the campus a more enjoyable place for us all. I ' ve benefited by my exposure to a great group of passionate leaders who have taught me what 1 could not have learned elsewhere.

TKomos photo Club As an academically and professionally geared organization, the Undergraduate Researchers Club worked to integrate the experiences of undergraduate researchers and use this knowledge to mentor new researchers. The group combined thirty-five students from various back- grounds of research interests. " We emphasize the importance of research and promote enlightenment on the critical nature of its existence in the world around us. We bring together students working in a variety of research fields so that they can create a support network resulting in an environment which can be used to promote collaborative thought and academic advancement, " stated group member and LSA student Tiffany Buckley. During the year, the organization sponsored several events, By Randielle Humphries including graduate school and career fairs, ethics debates, and commu- nity service activities. Twice a week the members assembled to discuss future events and hot topics in research, as well as participate in interac- tive learning experiences presented by guest speakers from the research community at the University. What made this group unique was that it had such a large emphasis on research and still maintained the ability to facilitate men- toring relationships between faculty members and staff. LSA student Erin Ealba commented, " There are so many talented brains to pick, we always have challenging group discussions and I ' m constantly learning new things. I think the Undergraduate Researchers Club helps its mem- bers attain a complete university experience.

Creatrve cos- tumes such as this one snowed the members ' enthusiasm for their organization. photo courtesy Dance Marathon After raising the amazing total of $166,000 last year, members of Dance Marathon set the stakes higher this year to raise even more money. " Dance Marathon is a non-profit, student-run philanthropic organization, " said Executive Director Michael Mayer. Dance Marathon was an organization with members from each class, graduate school, Uni- versity faculty and staff, and Ann Arbor community whose purpose was to raise funds and awareness for pediatric rehabilitation programs for the University of Michigan C.S. Mott Children ' s Hospital and Royal Oak Beaumont Hospital. " Dance Marathon is the one event on campus that brings together the entire campus and community for a single cause: to raise money for the children at local hospitals, " said Mayer. Dance Marathon had an estimated 1,000 members this year in varying positions. Dancers were responsible for raising money to help support the pediatric rehabilitation programs in addition to interacting with the families of children receiving rehabilitation. Moralers attended the marathon and encouraged the dancers to stay on their feet. Security members patrolled the area during the event. There were also positions on the Central Planning Team, which organized all the activities and events throughout the year. To join, members filled out registration forms at any time over the year and aided in raising awareness and funds. During their fundraising campaign, which started at the begin- ning of the year and concluded on March 16, members planned events for the community in order to promote awareness of their cause and organization, and to raise more money. These events included a char- jj ity ball, Standing Room Only (a campus-wide variety show), Rick ' s Bar Night, Yost Skate Nights, and the Marathon. The marathon was held on March 1 5 and 1 6 at the Indoor Track Building. The event lasted for 30 consecutive hours as the dancers were on their feet for the entire time raising money for their pledges. Food and entertainment from live bands, DJ ' s music, sports, student groups, and speakers helped to motivate the dancers over the 30-hour period. In the end, the dancers, as well as everyone involved in the organization, were rewarded as their hard-earned efforts were put towards a good purpose. 216 MlCHIGANENSIAN Front Row: Aarti Aurora, Amy Abramson, Nupur Kanodia Row 2: Tyler Atkins, Rey Salazar, Chris Grapes.

With a strong will to succeed and a great sense of pride, the Kinesiology Student Government strove to unite the Kinesiology stu- dents and improve the understanding of the issues related to the school, as well as acting as a liaison between faculty and students. Throughout the year, the thirteen members who ranged from sophomores to seniors with a variety of majors, organized several events in order to improve the relationship between peers and faculty. Around Halloween, the organization gathered students together for cider and doughnuts. During finals, the group provided candy to keep the stu- dents ' spirits up. They also sold Kinesiology t-shirts, from which all ot the profits were put back into the school itself. One of the Kinesiology Student Government ' s largest events was the Martin Luther King Day discussion that centered around women in education and sports, and how the views of women in these fields have changed. The Kinesiology Student Government brought together a panel of knowledgeable professionals to debate on the pros and cons of Title IX and inform students of the increasing importance of this issue. " Being part of a big school such as the University, and at the same time being part of a smaller school such as Kinesiology, allows us more of an opportunity on campus, " commented Kinesiology senior and Kine- siology Student Government president Robyn Katz. The Kinesiology Student Government not only had a chance to bring together students from various backgrounds and goals in life, but to diversify the meaning of kinesiology.

Tedjasukmtma photo CAMPUS LEADERSHIP By Jennifer Lee " The Michigan Student Assembly is important because we are the premiere voice of students on this campus. We represent the stu- dent body and we fight for their rights. This is what makes us who we are as a top student government organization on this campus, " said junior Spanish major Dana Glassel. Throughout the year, the Michigan Stu- dent Assembly was the central student government on campus. They focused on two main goals this year, advocating students ' rights and facilitating communication between the students and the University ' s administration. Another aspect of MSA came from their hefty contributions to other campus organizations, which were delegated by the commit- tees and commissions of MSA. MSA delivered monetary contributions to campus groups such as Sexual Assault Prevention and Awareness Center, Hillel, and acapella groups. They also funded many residence hall counsels. Finally, MSA also focused on outside activists and phi- lanthropy groups such as the Ford Foundation and Resist, Inc. " Our goal is to deliver over $200,000 per term to student groups. We have high aspirations and hope to help a wide variety of student and outside groups this year through our budget priorities committee, " said junior engineer- ing major Angela Galardi. How did the MSA accomplish such high goals? " Our success comes from the structure and relations among MSA as a whole. There are representatives from each different school on campus, and different committees and commissions as well as an executive board and other auxiliary boards. In addition, we all meet once a week so we are up on the current news of campus and the student body. We all work together as a team and that helps us represent the student voice on campus to the best of our ability, " said senior business major John Carter. MSA emerged as the voice of the student body, helping various organizations on and off campus and fighting for the rights of students. Through effective interactions with the student body and immense teamwork, the MSA completed their goals for the year by contributing their monetary support, but more importantly, by sustaining their place as the representative body of the students on campus.

Con- I sisting of at least 2,000 volunteer participants, K-grams provided a once- I in-a-lifetime opportunity for elementary children from 10 area schools to gain an understanding of the college experience while learning the true reason for reading and writing through a variety of kids programs. Out of all of the large events the group sponsored during the school year, the most well known was the pen-pal program. Through this unique opportunity, University students from 13 residence halls participated in six letter exchanges between over 1,000 local elementary students. Members also traveled to community schools and worked with the students on edu-active projects, a combination of educational and active activities. By Randielle Humphries The group also supported BookMARK, a program that helped children with activities such as reading, writing, mathematics, science, and even recess games. Kids-Fair, the end-of-the-year event held in March, brought together more than 2,000 students and children and over 100 student groups for a day of educational exploration. On the whole, K-grams ' volunteers gave up their time for the opportunity to enhance the lives of younger members of the commu- nity. " K-grams is driven by energetic, highly committed college students who truly believe in what they are doing, " said LSA senior Catherine Hawke. Yet, in the end, not only did the children benefit educationally, but the University students also gained knowledge and experiences to carry throughout their lives.

The group, composed of eleven outstanding women who possessed both a knowledge of and a love for singing, built upon their technical skills and extra-musical aspects, which coalesced for a season of successful performances and events. During the year, the Harmonettes participated in the Michi- gan A Cappella Festival, performed in conjunction with various other schools ' musical groups, competed in the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella, and recorded a brand new CD. Moreover, their fall concert, the culminating event of the first semester, brought together leading groups from both Michigan State University and the University of Michigan to collaborate for an extraordinary evening of a cappella in front of the largest crowd to ever attend a Harmonettes concert. This year was one ot firsts. At the start of the season, the Har- monettes experienced the largest and most impressive audition classes ever. The women also distributed their first edition of HarmaNews, a newly acclaimed newsletter, to alumni across the country. Finally, the group began preparing for their 25th anniversary, which would occur in the fall of 2003. " I am proud to be a member of the University ' s Harmonettes because we have really taken it up a notch with the recent reorganizatio of our group, setting goals for ourselves never before achieved by Ha monettes, " said member Jennifer Jacobson. For years to come, the Ha monettes were guaranteed to present outstanding musical performances. 228 MR HIOANENSIAN Members of the Men ' s Glee Club put their heart arid soul into a spiritual piece during the fall concert performance.

Thomas pKoto N TUNE WITH TRADITION By Randielle Humphries In its 142nd season, the Men ' s Glee Club united in an effort to ursue musical excellence in the chorus tradition. The chorus consisted f about 100 male vocalists ranging from freshmen to doctoral students, ogether, the group provided its members with the opportunity to develop sadership skills, progress in educational goals, and support the community, 11 while working to improve themselves and the organization as a whole. -SA freshman Andrew Pickens commented, " I am proud to be a member of ne Men ' s Glee Club because it has its traditions and gives me the chance o be a part of an unique experience. It also gives me a place here at the Jniversity. " While stressing tradition, camaraderie, and musical excellence, ne club performed in several presentations of musical talent. Standing tall n black tuxedo tails, the men put on two annual concerts in Ann Arbor, ne in the fall and another in the spring. They also gathered small groups ogether to sing to tailgaters before football games in the Crisler parking at and at the University golf course. Occasionally, the club performed for arious radio stations and toured outside of the University. Their unique ound and excellent performances stemmed from their amazing work effort. The chorus rehearsed twice a week as a whole and held several sectional meetings each semester. Providing the group with his own personal desire and gift of talent, each singer embraced unique qualities distributed amongst the chorus members. " Ideally, each singer suited to the Men ' s Glee Club will possess a voice of good quality and adaptable to ensemble work, an ear for tuning and intonation, an openness to try to sing all types of male choir music, and a personality suited to withstand the enthusiasm of 100 fellow students, " stated senior political science major Clinton Canady. Further adding to the club ' s persistence and superiority was the addition of the new music director, Professor Stephen Lusmann. Lusmann performed in leading roles with a variety of major opera houses, including the Opera Company of Philadelphia, the Boston Lyric Opera, Stadttheater Luzern, Opera de Monte Carlo, and many others. He also performed in such places as Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, and Alice Tully Hall. As director of the Men ' s Glee Club, Lusmann presented the club with a strong example to follow, which facilitated the Men ' s Glee Club ' s excellence in musical performance.

With its fifteen members, the Lyres perfonned at a multitude of events on the University ' s campus and across the country. This past fall, the group hosted the Michigan A Cappella Festival, a two-show production that featured nearly every one of the University ' s a cappella organizations. They also held a spring concert in conjunction with various a cappella ensembles from universities around the country. The Lyres performed at several events in the Ann Arbor community and opened for numerous a cappella concerts across the nation. During spring break, the vocal group traveled to other universi- ties for performances. Unlike other groups, the Compulsive Lyres were entirely student-run. The members took responsibility for arranging music; planning and financing tours, concerts, and CD production; and publi- cizing merchandise and shows. The group was also set apart based on its member composition. Compulsive Lyre Nathan Suh, an LSA student, stated, " We are a mix of music and non-music majors who love to per- form contemporary music. " After the Compulsive Lyres won the International Champion- ship of Collegiate A Cappella, the Regents passed a resolution in the fall of 2002 in the honor of the group ' s accomplishment. The ensemble also had a song selected for the 2002 Best of Collegiate A Cappella Album. On April 29, 2002, the Compulsive Lyres per- form on the Today Show.

The Undergraduate Psychological Society (UPS), however, made such a claim. UPS held academic, social, and community service events for its members. Social events usually manifested themselves in the form of member appreciation dinners. Academic oriented events were wide and varied, and in the past, included information sessions entitled " What to do with a BA in psychology " and psychology research, as well as clinical psychology guest speakers. Community service events involved participating in walks to raise money for various causes and volunteering in soup kitchens to feed the hungry and needy of Ann Arbor. UPS provided a wide array of services and sponsored many of the academic and social events that took place on campus; the organization provided support for undergraduates who were psychology majors, as well as an arena within which students got involved in psychology-related activities. According to 2001-2002 UPS President Courtney Bonam, the two underlying purposes of the Undergraduate Psychological Society were " to provide resources that will feed our members ' present interests in psychology and benefit them in their future careers and studies and to create community service opportunities that will benefit the community and allow our members to broaden their college (and life) experience. " Bonam noted that members are proud to be a part of UPS. " They know that they are participating in an organization that will help them further their interests in psychology, " she said. Bonam also pointed out a distinct characteristic of UPS: its vast diversity. " Because this interest [in psychol- ogy] is the only requirement to join, UPS is unique in that students with many different academic backgrounds are able to join, " Bonam remarked. " Our members are unified by their interest in psychology. " The Undergraduate Psychological Society coordinated activities that ran the gamut, from career and academic workshops to community service activities to social events. UPS hosted and funded such activities and information sessions as the Summer Opportunities in Psychology and Graduate School: How to Get There panels. The organization has also held movie viewings, organized scavenger hunts, and conducted basic needs drives, along with a slew of other activities. Member mass meetings afforded students the opportunity to put in their two cents about activities and services that they wanted to see UPS provide them with. There were customarily two to three events and activities planned each month; each committee within the organization planned at least one event each month. The Undergraduate Psychological Society hosted a number of events this year. UPS sponsored an " AIDS Walk For A Cure, " and the money raised from the event went to benefit The Hemophilia Foundation of Michigan (HFM), the HIV AIDS Resource Center (HARC), and the Midwest AIDS Prevention Project (MAPP). UPS also featured a guest lecturer, Adjunct Asso- ciate Professor, Dr. James Hansell who spoke to students about how his interest in clinical psychology developed as well as what skills students need, should they decide to pursue a career in clinical psychology. UPS hosted a Psychology Fair that gave students interested in psychology a chance to learn in greater depth about the extent of classes and resources that the University offers which cater to their academic interests. UPS also held an information session, an event that featured representatives from a number of fields, who informed students about the various factors that play into their decision as to how to prepare for gradu- ate school, how to get in, and ultimately how to decide where to go. Graduate students from several fields of psychology were present at the session to share their experiences, talk about how to get accepted into gra duate school and the application process. Although there was a strong academic component to UPS, its tradi- tion of community service should not go unnoticed. On October 26, the orga- nization held a Chili Cook Off on Elbel Field; proceeds went to Campfire USA, which gave scholarships to children to attend camp over the summer. During a board meeting, the Undergraduate Psycho- logical Socety conducts business. They discussed what activities would be held for the remainder of the year. K.

Schoich photo EDITORIAL FREEDOM UNDER FIRE By Kara DeBoer As one of the most widely read controversial publications on campus, The Michigan Daily gained quite a reputation during 2002. In early October, former reporters and Michigan alumni found their newspaper alma mater embalmed in accusations of minority under- and misrepresentation in its daily pages. The Daily ' s front page boasted the headline " 112 years of edito- rial freedom. " The completely student-run publication had no faculty advisors and its writers received little pay. To be a part of the paper one needed no prerequisite experience or education; instead, any interested student needed only to visit the office on Maynard Street and ask an editor where to start. The 16-page publication had all the sections of a basic newspa- per: News, Opinion, Sports, Arts, and a weekly insert printed on Thurs- days, " Weekend " . If a writer stayed on staff for only a year, he or she could run in the editor elections for any section. As an editor, students had influence over what got published and what writers could or could not print. All voices could be heard in such an easily accessible arrange- ment; if students felt they were not represented, they could walk into the Daily and have it changed. But by November, over 100 student organizations had joined in boycotting the Daily. They felt that the Daily ' s coverage of minority groups, events, and issues was inadequate, and initially that the Daily staff would not listen to students ' concerns. The concerns centered around these issues: " the use of the term ' buckwheat ' in a racist manner in the Arts section, misidentification of faculty, administrators and guest speakers of color, a general lack of representation and coverage of minor- ity events, programs, and issues, the frequent misspelling of minority student names, " and " the application of stereotypes to manipulate the perception of minorities. " The boycotters also decided to " refuse to read, submit letters or viewpoints to, and respond to reporters ' requests for comments from the Michigan Daily, " according to the website for the Daily boycott. From inside the Daily, perspectives on the boycott and the paper in general varied. LSA senior Layla Merritt was a first-year reporter on sick leave when the boycott began. " For a while I wasn ' t working, and I was hesitant to come back (after the boycott). I can see why the boy- cotters have a problem with the paper. It is very conservative paper for a student paper. I would like to see more controversial issues covered...! wish the paper was more liberal, basically, " said Merritt. Younger reporters had a different view. " I like that the Daily has such a long history and that it is independent from administrators, " said Carmen Johnson, LSA sophomore and two-year Daily veteran. " 1 think any big institution will always come under fire eventually. The Daily just needs to keep improving. " Throughout the year several organizations made attempts to mollify the Daily ' s relationship with the student community. Instead of refusing to comment, thereby furthering the problem, groups such as the Muslim Students Association met with the staff in person. The Muslim Students Association gave the staff a thick packet of accurate information, contact names, and examples of past journalistic misrep- resentations to avoid in the future. Gradually, members of other groups opened up to the Daily as well, but the boycott remained strong. Never before had University students so vehemently insisted on their right to an authentic voice in their student newspaper. The boycott would have long-lasting influence on the Daily ' s editorial content, responsibility, and integrity.

M. Christiansen photo MAKING COLLEGE MEMORABLE By Lauren Rutledge Following in the footsteps of the 2002 Michiganensian, a finalist in the Columbia Scholastic Press Association ' s Gold Crown awards, the staff of the 2003 Michiganensian worked especially hard to continue its journalistic excellence as the University ' s official yearbook. Between six deadlines and over 400 pages, approximately 40 Ensian members set out to cover the University ' s greatest accomplishments and events of the year. As a student-run publication, the Ensian afforded loads of responsibility to its members. Between writing stories, shooting photos, laying out pages, selling books, entering caption names, and poring over proofs, it was some- times a wonder that the staff survived. They found, however, that all the hard work paid off. " Working for the Ensian turned out to be a ton more work and stress than 1 expected, " said freshman write r Chelsea Anderson, " but I ' ve met a ton of cool people and have been exposed to campus life in a way I would have missed out on if I hadn ' t taken advantage of this experience. " In addition to the around-the-clock work on the book itself, the Ensian also found many avenues for fun. One day in November was the " Ensian Fun-a-thon, " an extravaganza that consisted of advertising senior pictures followed by a dinner at Mongolian Barbeque and by an attempted painting of the Rock on Hill and Washtenaw. " It was great to be there with all the staff members, but our hopes were shattered by some engineering frats who beat us to the Rock with their paint. All that work and plan- ning down the drain, " said senior biology major and business manager Rob McTear. Other notable events were the annual holiday party and the Ensian Gala at the end of the year, as well as round after round of Bar Golf, a weekly pastime co-invented for the legal crowd by Aaron Saito, graduate student and senior portraits manager. In addition to the common goal of preparing one for a journal- ism or business major, the reasons for being on staff were as diverse as the CONTINUED ON PAGE 240 uing the holiday party at Christophe Tedjasuk- Bna ' s house, staft members enpy food, drink Td dancing.

" For me, the epitome of the Ensian atmosphere was encompassed in our photographer, Christophe Tedja- sukmana, when he felt so comfortable as to ' drop trou ' during the holi- day party, " said sophomore psychology major and assistant photo editor Lauren Proux. " It just doesn ' t get any better than a skinny dude dancing around in his boxer briefs to Hot in Herre. " Freshman photographer Jason Weiner said something similar about his mentor and idol, Tosin Akinmusuru. " Tosin is the best thing about the Ensian, " he explained. " Without him, photo meetings just wouldn ' t be the same. " The Ensian was able to capture the University ' s fondest memo- ries while creating just as many of its own. Some members found their best friends on staff, and would stay long past their office hours with no reason but just to be there. " The amazing thing about the Ensian is it joins people from diverse backgrounds and majors who all share the dorky goal of encapsulating an entire year in a 400-page book, " said junior business major and Special Events editor Erica Margolius. Senior English major and layout editor Chrissy Vettraino agreed. " The hard work really paid off, " she said. " Working those long hours for deadlines was tough, but it really brought us together. You never realize how much you love people until you want to kill them. " Many had a similar perspective. " Joining the Ensian was one of the best things I did, " claimed senior English major and production editor Carly McEntee. " I have had so much fun with all the crazy people on staff and have made some really good friends. Sometimes, it doesn ' t even feel like work.

Christiansen ORGANIZATIONS 241 LEARNING TO BE THE BEST By Carly McEntee The Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and Submission Wrestling club con- tinued with another season of success. The club included University students who either had a background in wrestling or just had a desire to learn the Jiu-jitsu techniques. Junior Glenn Hauk said of his decision to join the club, " Jiu-jitsu and Submission Wrestling were a natural transi- tion for me after wrestling in high school, not to mention the fact that it ' s a great way to stay in shape. The club here is a fantastic place to learn and practice because the instructors and members are all genuinely nice, helpful and skilled individuals. " Members could either take part in both Jiu-jitsu and Submission Wrestling or chose one of their liking. The club allowed members to have a place to practice, while learning new skills. They were also able to work with other students who pos- sessed the same interest in Jiu-jitsu and Submission Wrestling. The club gave the members an opportunity to take part in competitions against people from other areas. The club was run by president Matt Jubera. He took charge of all the logistical issues in order to allow the club to run smoothly. He also gained help from Vice-President Jason May, who assisted Jubera in the running of the club. All of the competitions were organized by Competition Team Captain Hauk. Hauk ' s job consisted of finding competitions for the team to participate in and making all of the travel arrangements. His job also included running specific practices for the competition team to get ready for each competition. The team met on a weekly basis in order to practice and work on new moves. On Tuesday evenings the team practiced Brazilian Jiu- jitsu. Rodrigo Nunes was the coach who helped them with Jiu-jitsu. On Thursdays they practiced Submission Wrestling under the coaching of Quincy Rice. On Friday evenings team members were given the oppor- tunity to come to open mat, where they could practice old moves and moves they had learned during the week. Members consisted of current Team member, Matt Rando Chandon looks towards the crowd after finishing at take down. The team performed well at the Tourna- ment in Southfeld photo courtesy Q. Hauk University students along with some alumni. The club decided that they wanted to assist women in learn- ing self-defense. They felt Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and Submission Wrestling techniques would be useful to anyone no matter how big and strong they were. Every Friday evening the members helped to run Self- Defense for Women. This program was led by instructor Jason Clarke. He taught the women how to be safe and also how to escape when being attacked. The moves taught in these clinics focused on leverage and technique in order to make it work for a woman against any size man. The team worked hard to do well as a whole and individually in competition. The competition team took part in the Metropolitan Submission Wrestling Championships. Two of the members, May and RJ Williams, received first place, while Hauk finished in third. Another competition included the Canadian-American Bra- zilian Jiu-jitsu Championships. At this competition Hauk received first in his weight division and second place overall. Team members Francis Garcia and Matt Rando both finished in third place at the event. The team also showed well at the Relson Gracie U.S. Nationals. Jubera and Rob Linn both took first place. The club not only provided members with a place to practice their skills, but it also gave them a place to meet new people. The team members would meet after practices to watch tapes of their competi- tions and other competitions to learn new moves and techniques. They also threw a few parties during the year to give the members an oppor- tunity to get to know one another and hang-out with each other away from the mats. The club combined hard work and fun to make Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and Submission Wrestling a success. Jubera said of being a part of the club, " I do jiu-jitsu to relax, get a workout. Competition is just a way to beat someone ' s ass in a controlled environment. " 242 MlCHIGANENSIAN I ront Ro : . ; ; :iel Bunda, Matt Rando-Chanon, Deepak Reddy, Glenn Hauk.

Published twice a semester, the magazine was a reliable source of entertainment. The subject matter of the jokes ranged from local to secular, with specific University puns included among social and political parodies. Stories appeared in article form, similar to a traditional magazine layout. Sections included topics like science, with such subheadings as " research news " and " wizards. " This contrast was an illustration of the variety in material; staff members contributed their writing, drawing, and publishing skills to the maga- zine. The publication relied on advertising revenue and was available to students free of charge. Subscriptions to the Gargoyle were also avail- able, allowing off-campus alumni to continue enjoying this comical Uni- versity mainstay. Additionally, the Gargoyle website offered a healthy portion of sample humor. Mirroring the interface of the homepage of internet giant Yahoo, the Gargoyle website showcased its contents and invited visitors to interact with the staff via email or in person. The modest-sized group of Gargoyle staff members was headed by senior LSA student Steve Jarczak, the editor in chief. Contributions were welcome from all University students, as the magazine continued its standing practice of eagerly receiving any aspiring applicants. The place where it all came together was in the office on the first floor of the Student Publications Building. The mission statement relayed the perpetual vision of the mag- azine: " We mock, joke, spoof, create, undermine, satirize, pun, speak out, ridicule, cross some lines and blur others. We are never cowed, hesitant or unwilling to push the envelope. We exist to entertain and educate using the comedic. Simply put, we bring a fine tradition of humor to the University of Michigan.

Schriever Z46 MlCHIGANENSlAN SHOOTING FOR PAR In its second year, Bargolf soared from just 48 members to over 130. First year graduate student Aaron Saito founded this club during his senior year at Michigan, hoping to make bar-going a little more interesting, along with giving students a reason to venture out to the bar on cold Michigan nights. Saito explained his theory behind Bargolf: " Bargolf was created to get seniors out during their last semester. It pro- vided a means to bring people together and have fun. ..Bargolf is in its second year and I really hope that the tradition continues long after I have left this University. I hope this becomes a campus tradition since the police and University have destroyed the Naked Mile, and outsiders have tainted Hash Bash. The University needs a tradition and I think Bargolf is it. " Not only did it give students another reason to go to the bar, but it also provided a way for people to get to know each other. Sociol- ogy senior Dana Holcman said of the experience, " Since I joined the Bargolf frenzy, not only have I been more social, but have met a lot of new people along the way! " Members of Bargolf split up into teams of two sporting a variety of different team names. Some of the team names included the Silver Bullets, Foreplay, Saucy Mommas, Sexy C ' s and Feathers Afire. Each week from Sunday to Saturday counted as one hole. Every night a team member went to the bar counted as a point for the team. If both mem- bers of the team went to the bar every night of the week, they were rewarded with a hole in one. Par consisted of six nights between part- ners. Each point over became a birdie or an eagle. Anything less than six By Carly McEntee nights was known as a bogey. The Bargolf season kicked off on Super Bowl Sunday with a get-to-know-each-other party where all the participants met at a mem- bers ' house, and then everyone proceeded to Rick ' s. All Bargolf mem- bers were expected to carry a golf-related item whenever they went to the bars. Some people choose to take tees, golf balls and golf socks. One person even attempted to bring in golf clubs, but was turned away from the bar because the golf clubs were considered weapons. Even though Bargolf appeared to be fun, it did require a lot of dedication and work. Participants had to balance homework with nights out at the bar, along with the financial burden it caused. Senior business major Joe Wagner said, " Bargolf is more exhausting than walking 18 holes. ..and well worth it. " St. Patrick ' s Day allowed for a Bargolf Extravaganza. The day consisted of participants going to as many bars as possible, and having to drink a shot or beer at every bar. The teams that survived to go to nine bars received a hole in one for the event. Even though St. Patrick ' s Day fell on a Monday it did not keep students from skipping classes and going out to the bar. The winners received a green golf jacket reminiscent of the jacket given at the Masters. The team who achieved the most holes in one were also rewarded with prizes at the end. Bargolf kept expanding as the leaders looked for sponsorship and created a website to update with pictures and scores. The ultimate purpose of Bargolf remained bringing students together socially.

Tediasukinana photo 248 MIC: :HIGANENSIAN CONCERT FOR A CAUSE By Randielle Humphries Stemming from a previous a cappella event sponsored by Circle K, American Idol: A Cappella Style took the stage for the first time. With a new name and theme, the event was an all-out success. The planning for the concert began in early fall. The event committee searched for University ensembles and an out-of-state group, started publicizing across campus and the community, and booked the auditorium. They also collected donations from local restaurants and organizations for prize money for the winning a cappella group and raised funds within the community. The committee managed to receive sponsorship and funding from Circle K, LSA-student government, Arts at Michigan, and various resident hall councils. The night included performances from six reputable a cappella ensembles: Amazin ' Blue, Dicks and Janes, Gmen, Sopranos, the University of Wisconsin-Madison Madhatters, and Pioneer High School ' s all female group, Harmony. During intermission, the crowd enjoyed a performance by break-dancers from Element One. Event planner Courtney Istre, a member of the Sopranos and an LSA student, exclaimed, " The Masters of Ceremonies, Matt George, from the Gmen, and Andy Roberts, pro- vided a very humorous dialogue throughout the concert that kept the audience entertained. " Members of the sponsorship organizations also spoke. At the end of the evening, about 700 people looked on as the winners were awarded prizes. The proceeds from the concert benefited the Washtenaw Camp Placement Association, which provided low-income, high-risk elementary and high school students with the opportunity to attend summer camps for two weeks. Ticket sales raised over $5,500, whi ch provided 110 days of summer camp. American Idol: A Cappella Styk was a success because of the dedication, hard work, and generos- ity of its volunteers. Istre stated, " This event is one of the only, if not the only, a cappella benefit concert this school year, especially of its size. That in combination with the American Idol theme led to a unique and creative event. It ' s another opportunity to bring together various organizations, plus all the money went to a great cause. " Early in the show, a member from one of the participating a cappella ensembles sings a solo part. The combination of work put into planning, publicity, and the perfomance itself brought in enough money to send children to summer camp for 1 1 days. S.

Because leasing usually began in October, students had to make housing decisions early. L. Prolix photo s - V the apartment SEARCH By Jennifer C. Lee " One month into the school year and the famous house or apartment hunt began. For me, finding housing consisted of mixing hassle and exhilaration all into one, " said junior economics major Kate Riley. That seemed to he the consensus among students at the University: finding housing was either a problem or relief waiting to happen. After one month of settling into their new lives as freshmen, students were forced to make decisions about housing for the next year. " The problem was that you did not know anybody well enough to gauge whether you could live with them or not in a house, therefore I choose the easiest route, to live in dorms again, " said sophomore psychology major Stephon Proc- tors. But for some upperclassmen, finding housing was very exciting. OlDtlOIlS " Finding a house was stressful, but completely enthralling. 1 just got so excited thinking I was going to be living in my own house next year, " said senior English major Elizabeth Mannek. " The trick was to weigh the pros and cons of the situation and try to make the best possible choice for yourself and your happiness, " said Proctors. The obvious pros of liv- ing in a house after freshman year was the thrill of not having to live in dorms, no resident advisor, no coin-operated laun- dry, and most importantly, no dormitory food. Yet, the thrill of living in a house was downplayed by the cons, such as utili- ties, higher rent, noise violations, and worst of all unpleasant house mate relations. " There would be wars at our house at certain times because of chore lists, paying rent on time, etc. Yet I know that 1 could never live in dorms again because the freedom of a house is far superior, " said Mannek. Housing at the University was a responsibility that could not be taken lightly. Serious issues were at stake when forced to make these decisions early on in the school year. The question remained: should you go for ease or excite- ment? Students choose between housing HOUSING 2,55 Alice L Uoyd 6th Palmer - Front Row: Jordan Acker, Sarah Erwn, Sarah Fran- cisco, Melinda DeSantis, Andy Tsai, Anil Aswani Row 2: Manish Kapadia, Thomas Ambrose, Magan Fellows.

PTOUX photo to HOUSING 257 Opinions varied about computing preferences computer CHOICES By Melissa Plotkowski Through the summer, students had to make a decision: whether to bring a computer to school or not. Many students opted to bring their own computer. For these students, another choice was at hand, a desktop or a laptop. For Jennie Clifford, freshman engineering major, " I chose a desktop because I do not need to bring a laptop to class like some other majors. I ' m also afraid that I would lose it or it would get stolen. " The thought of losing a laptop crossed the minds of many students who chose to buy their own computer. On the other hand, Stefania Gismondi, freshman LSA student, said, " I bought a laptop because it ' s easy for me to bring it wherever I need to use it. My room always has people in it, so I like to take my laptop to the lounge and type all my papers there. It ' s very convenient for me. " Of course, there were always other options. One of these options was to use one of the many computing sites on campus. For students without a computer, this was one of the only ways to type papers and to check e-mail. Each residence on campus had a computing site for its residents. " I did not have an option to use the computer lab. My computer was sent to me with a crack in the screen and the company has not sent me a new computer yet. I do not mind anymore having to use the lab because 1 really do not have to deal with too many printing problems, " said La ' Sheanma Lumpkin, freshman LSA student. One of the most frequently used labs was the Fish Bowl in Angell Hall. Throughout the years here at the University, all students ran into times when a computer or printer was desperately needed to finish that one paper or get that one homework assignment turned in. For now, the choice of computers was limited to laptops, desktops or computing sites. 258 MlCHlGANENSIAN . . . . 41 . .

Weiner photo Convenience stores settle hungry stomachs taking a snack WEAK By Han-Ching Lin A snack break was sometimes what it took to get students through a six-hour day of class or a long night of studying. In the dorms, students often used the snack bars that were located in the larger residence hall, such as South Quad, Markley, and Bursley. Others chose to buy snack foods at convenience stores around campus or just stock up during trips to Meijer. Matt Martin, an engineering sophomore, found snack bars to be one of the great things available in dorms. " I lived in Bursley, which was far away from campus. The snack bar was a convenient place to eat or buy snacks, because it was just downstairs. A lot of times, I had meal credits left over, so I would just blow them all at the snack bar. " The Bursley snack bar, called the Blue Apple, sold a range of food from burgers and quesadillas to food-to-go such as pop tarts, soda, and chips. " Even though they were overpriced, I didn ' t want to waste my meal credits, so I would usually buy a pop and a couple bags of chips, " said Martin. Like many students, Martin moved out of the dorm after freshman year. Living off campus as a sopho- more, things were different. " When I moved out of the dorms, I switched over to making trips to Meijer and just stocking up on things like Spaghetti-O ' s, mac and cheese, and popcorn. Although I had to drive there, it was well worth it because of the cheap prices. " Reminiscing upon her freshman and sophomore years, LSA junior Krisha Arnold also enjoyed having access to the snack bars in the dorms. " I used to go to the Markley Underground a lot. I really liked the South Quad Down Under, especially the chicken tenders and quesadillas. Now, I don ' t have access to such luxuries. Now I have to go to Strickland ' s where everything is overpriced. " Despite the newfound inconvenience, snacks were still very impor- tant to Arnold. " I try not to have too many snacks, but sometimes, 1 just need a Snapple and some chips. " HOUSING 263 Bursley Bursley 1st flotvig - Front Row: Cole Shaw. Jon Bos, Lauren Schleh.

Maher photo I HOUSING 265 Room decorations reflect personality traits dorm room DECOR By Chelsea Anderson Men and women both seemed to take pride as- sembling their first home away from home. Students packed all kinds of furniture and accessories into their rooms like couches, TVs, plants, and basically any modern conveniences that could be stashed in a dorm room. How- ever, the genders differed in how people accessorized their rooms. For example, females took pride in the decor of the room, attempting a " Trad- ing Spaces " type makeover, while males tended to dwell over their " systems. " A typical female ' s room could be best described as a rainbow of color. It was all about creating a com- fortable oasis like home. Vibrantly colored posters, sheets, and collectables lined every inch of space of a dorm room. Camille Boykins, a LSA sophomore who lived in Mary Markley, said, " 1 hung posters of Michigan sports, Looney Tunes, and tennis play- ers all over the wall. " In addition, Boykins hung up comic strips from the Michigan Daily including the one about how Michigan State could not tell time. " When designing my room, I wanted to make it comfortable and have a feel- ing of home, " Boykins said. In contrast, a man ' s room often consisted of technol- ogy. Students packed in surround sound speakers, comput- ers, stereo systems, TVs, and video games. " The main focus of our room was the set-up of our system with the computer, TV, and stereo, " said John Silva, an LSA freshman. Silva lived in Bursley with his twin brother, Andrew. Each of them had surround sound set up with their computers con- sisting of five speakers plus a sub woofer. The power in that system could be heard two to three rooms down the hall with the doors closed. " When we turn our system all the way up, our RA comes running down to tell us to turn it down, " Silva said. " And he lives three rooms away. " With the thousands of dorm rooms on campus, each contained unique flair and was hand crafted to fit the stu- dents ' needs and personality. It was amazing what students squeezed in their tiny quarters. Strands of lights and a mosquito net add some personal flair to the dorm room of a student in Bursley. Reflections of a person ' s character could be seen through the many different decorations displayed. K.

This pond, the Lurie Bell Tower, and the Wave Field all added a touch of beauty to North Campus. K. Moher photo .w North Campus: beauty or a hassle? ivine up NORTH By Erica Chernick Although students who lived on North Campus often prided themselves on their stress-free environment and quiet, peaceful surroundings, it seemed that many more students residing ' up north ' for the year were quicker to point out the downsides to living a bus ride away from the activity of central campus. More than 2,000 students who lived on North Campus lived in either the Vera Baits Houses or in Bursley Residence Hall. Though this residence hall happened to be the largest at the University, many students voiced, if not at least felt, a feeling of detachment from the rest of the campus community. A sentiment that became more pronou nced due to the hectic bus schedule and the considerable dis- tance that set apart North Campus from downtown Ann Arbor. " I feel very disconnected from life on Central Campus, " said LSA first-year student Megan Gerk- ing, who lived in the Bursley Residence Hall. " The major- ity of my friends live on the Hill, and I always have to go there to see them. No one ever wants to make the journey on the bus to North Campus if they don ' t have to, " Gerk- ing added. " It is a hassle to come back to Bursley. In fact, I pack an overnight bag every weekend to take to my best friend ' s dorm, because I never want to make the journey back late at night. " Gerking noted that even her friends on Central Campus sensed the considerable distance that separates North Campus from the rest of the University community. " My friends (on the Hill) ask ridiculous things like, ' When does the flight leave for North today? What time is it up there? How ' s the weather up north? ' " Naturally, a majority of events and activities were held on Central Campus for the convenience of most students and faculty members, since most members of the campus community live in close proximity to the down- town area. Many students who lived on North Campus discovered the difficulty of participating in clubs and other student organizations that met and held events on Cen- tral Campus, while students who lived closer could easily attend and enjoy these things. (story continued on page 1 274) HOUSING 273 (story continued from page 273) J ' f Life planned around bus schedules Many students cited other disadvantages and inconveniences of living on North Campus, particularly LSA students, whose classes were on Central Campus. " I have no idea when the bus comes, so I just have to go and wait, " said LSA first-year student Jamie Slater, a resident of Bursley Hall. " Sometimes when I am waiting for a bus to go back up, the bus goes right by because it is too full, and then I am late for work. " Slater also echoed Gerking ' s feel- ing of detachment from life on central campus, and noted the difficulty of attending events and socializing in or near the downtown area due to the time-consuming bus rides and unpredictable bus schedule, " Once I come back up here after my classes are done, I never go back downtown because it takes too long, which sucks, because I always want to go. " Thanks to the North Campus residents who had expressed discontent about aspects of living up north, University officials took the matter into their own hands and tailored their efforts to focus more on North Campus. They claimed that living conditions, as well as the overall experience on living of North Campus, were expected to improve. Former interim University President B. Joseph White expressed an interest in making North Campus a more active and exciting place for students, a place where events were more readily open to students up north, and closer to their place of residence. Although many students lamented the numer- ous inconveniences of living up north for the year, other students emphasize the advantages to living away from central campus. " 1 totally enjoy living up here, " said LSA first-year student Katie Cornish. " The floors are coed by room, so you get a lot of exposure to all kinds of people...! think the people are a lot closer knit up here. Especially in Baits. ..with 90 people in a house and only like 12 people on a floor section, " Cornish added, " you really get to know everyone... you have to since it ' s such a huge undertaking to go to central campus. " She acknowledged, along with many of her neighbors on North Campus, that " there isn ' t much to do " , and that " going to Central adds twenty minutes to both ends of your schedule, " but noted still some other highlights of living on north campus. " Bursley DOES have the best food, and we CAN have cars up here. if it ' s not better than Central, it at least evens itself out. ..I ' m even thinking of living another year up here. " 274 MlCHIGANENSIAN Getting a seat on the bus this morning is not a problem for these students. Many morn- ings, students were piled onto the buses, often with no room to even stand. Students at Bunsey were forced to wait for the next Bursley-Baits bus or the Bursley Express. 1.

Fletcher was the all-male residence on campus, but due to increased student enrollment, it was converted to a co-ed dorm. S. Thomas photo a far-off PLACE Oxford Fletcher characterized by long walks home By Erica Chernick Oxford and Fletcher residence halls were not typical dorms one found on the Hill or Central Campus. The considerable distance that set apart these two hous- ing options from the activity of those on Central Campus greatly affected the schedules of students who resided in these two dorms. Oxford, built in 1963, located on Oxford Road and Geddes Avenue, housed sophomore through graduate students, including a number of transfer students. Oxford could boast about rooms larger than those in other dorms and a residential staff, and the hall offered full kitchens to replace the problem of not having a cafeteria and meal plans. Along with the personal kitchens, students used Entree Plus for meals. In addition, the bus route posed a major prob- lem for students residing in both Oxford and Fletcher residence halls. Adding Oxford to the route caused too many problems economically, but it was still on the path of the Night Owl, keeping late night trips home safe. Fletcher residence hall, located near Hoover and Sybil Street, was built in 1922, used as a co-ed dorm that housed primarily freshmen and sophomores. The rooms in Fletcher were like those in Oxford in that they were larger than the rooms of dorms on the Hill and Central Campus. Fletcher prided itself in being able to provide its residents with the experience of being part of a small community. The residence hall also had a residential staff and a cafete- ria with meal contracts. " Fletcher is unlike any other dorm on campus, " said LSA freshman Amy Eckhout. " Because there are only seventy people that live there, I feel like most everyone has gotten to know each other really well. It ' s nice to have a close-knit community, especially for my freshman year. " Living in either Oxford or Fletcher for the year inevitably made for an experience that differed from most. Both the Oxford and Fletcher Residence Halls provided its students a smaller community within the large university.

Thomas photo HOUSING Zo 1 lights _ OUT By Chelsea Anderson Based on the increase of students present in the Mary Markley residence hall plus the additions of modern technology since the 1950s, it was not a shock when the power died early in September. " I was sitting in my room when the lights went out. I ran into the hall to see what happened and everyone was in the hall very upset about the things they had lost on their computers, " said Heather Oswald, a first-year LSA student. Over the course of three days, the power shorted out a total of four times in the 200 and 400 wings, some- times for more than an hour at a time. There were two reasons for these unexpected power outages. The first was the overload on the electri- cal system. Each year, students have brought increasingly more technology. The multiple computers, refrigerators, microwaves, TVs, stereos, and hair dryers simply were pull- ing too much current for the system. Markley had upgrades since its original construction, but " students were sucking out more energy than we could produce, " said Dominic Petruzelli, the hall director of Mary Markley. The second reason behind the outages was the system ' s set-up. There were a total of three breakers in Mary Markley: one for the 100 wing, a second for the 300 wing, and the third was shared between the 200 and 400 wings. The third breaker was handling double the power of the others. To solve the problem, students were surveyed about the items they had in their rooms, and in the end, the third breaker was split in two. The repair was scheduled for Sunday, September 8 from 7 a.m. until 3 p.m. and the power was cut throughout the dorm. To compensate for the loss of electricity, each room was given a flashlight. " It was nice that they handed out flashlights, but the power didn ' t go off after that, so the flashlights were never used, " said Stephen Chen, a first-year engineering student. Luckily, the problem was resolved in a matter of 27 minutes after the breaker was split that Sunday morning. Power outages cause problems in Markley Reading by flashlight, freshman Jesse Green- berger finishes his homework in Markley after the power went out.

Maher photo During a traditional sit-down dinner at Martha Cook residence hall, server, junior Sarah Martin listens to the requests of a first year resident Mann Hoplamazion. Servers were typically students from other residence halls looking for extra money. J. Neff photo 1ANENS1AN upholding TRADITION By Erica Chernick The history and tradition behind Martha Cook residence hall and the environment it provided its resi- dents was unlike those of any other residence halls at the University. Traditions abounded within the walls of Martha Cook. In fact, the residence hall hosted a reception, a very formal dinner after the University Musical Society ' s per- formance of Handel ' s Messiah that honored the concert ' s performers, for the fifty-first year. " The traditions endure because of the women here, " said director Marion Scher. The women residents of Martha Cook upheld many of the hall ' s other traditions. These Keeping included holiday celebrations and _ | CtCI III O II S Friday afternoon teas in the Gold 3.1lVC DV Room that were open to residents f ( f f as weU as to the public. Those residents have been really popular. Resi- dents can bring their friends and families. It is a time to relax and de-stress, " said graduate student Susan Daron. One big tradition at Martha Cook was that every year the hall invited the law students to have tea at Martha Cook. " That ' s probably the most popu- lar tea of the year, " Daron said. Martha Cook residents also enjoyed sit-down dinners, which took place three nights per week. Green noted one of the residence hall ' s ' unique ' sit down facts: " We have at least four ' special dinners ' a semester -- two Friends dinners and two Faculty dinners, " Green said. " The Faculty dinners are especially historic, as women have been using it as an opportunity to host professors and other faculty members. " In April, residents celebrated Martha cook ' s birthday at a special dinner and also had a dinner in honor of Gradu- ates. " We also have a dinner for new women every fall, " said Green. During this ceremony, each new resident was given an oak leaf and a yellow rose to symbolize loyalty and friendship. " We celebrate the new women in the building and welcome them to their new home, " said Green. Perhaps most importantly, the Martha Cook residence hall prided itself on offering residents a home-like atmo- sphere, and on providing the women who lived there with a safe and quiet setting.

ENS1AN w HOUSING 289 claim to FAME Sexy Grandpa serves legendary smiles By Kara DeBoer Anyone who lived in Bursley saved a special place in his or her heart for Ron Barker, nicknamed Sexy Grandpa. He rode Harleys, served food in Bursley Hall caf- eteria, and wore a hat bearing his nickname. However, the message was offensive to some employees and students, and the hat was laid to rest this year. Students did not seem to have a clear conception of why Barker lost his hat. Engineering sopho- more Patrick Doll said Barker ' s fellow workers must have envied all the extra attention. " It might have been someone in the dish room who was jealous, " he speculated. " All the students thought he was the man. " Others claimed a couple of students complained to dining services manager Dave Kluck, and that he alone banned the hat. " I didn ' t even notice the hat was gone, " said LSA sophomore Robert Jackson. " But they need to give it back. " The name and the man lived on for Bursley Hall residents who looked forward to his smiling face at meal times. He took extra care to pair names with faces, and always had something great to say. " He was always friendly to everyone. He had a nickname for me, and always knew when 1 hadn ' t been around, " said first-year graduate student Celina Nichols. Engineering freshman Allen LaBryer said Barker has a special name for every student depending on his or her cafeteria-line behavior. " He has a nickname for me because I never remember the names of the foods. " LaBryer also failed to remember the nickname. " He makes fun of people in a friendly way, not in a way they mind, " he added. More than any other dining service worker, Barker had extra flair to go along with his outstanding work in the dorm. His influence was so strong that many students sported his nickname around campus on custom-made T-shirts. About four years ago students sold about 1 500 T-- shirts proclaiming their love for both Bursley and Barker. The shirts read " Burlodge " on the front and " Served by Sexy Grandpa " on the back, and were still seen around on the most devoted Barker fans in 2002. Sporting his new Michigan hat, Ron Barker, lovingly referred to by most as " Sexy G, " serves a Bursley resident. Barker was known not just for the old hat and associated nick- name, but also for his endearing personality. J.

McEntet photo Sweeping the kitchen floor, first year graduate student Tim Harter takes care of his assigned duties as a resident of Stevens House. Co ops offered the unique experience of living and working together. S. Thomas photo . i workin working TOGETHER By Han-Ching Lin From the wealth of housing options University students had to choose from, co-operatives were a popu- lar choice for undergraduate and graduate students alike. One apartment house and 18 group houses were all run by the residents. Chandrashekar Shankar, a Ph.D. stu- dent in material science and a member of the Sojourner Truth House, lived among one of the most diverse groups of people. " There were people from many different back- grounds and countries, studying across all disciplines. " Cooperative living presented many advantages, including affordable prices on housing as well as free meals, parking, and laundry. For many, the most attractive aspect was the close community life. " It felt like one big family, with people looking out for each other and someone to come home to all the time, " said Samantha Samarasinha, an anthropology junior living in Muriel Lester Co-operative. " The amount of interaction that you have with people depends on the co-op you choose. Some are like dorms, where you live more individ- ually. Others, like Lester, are like a family, where you have a lot of interaction with people in your house everyday. " " I chose the co-ops because of the low expense, " said Tim Harter, a School of Information graduate student. " For around $425, you can live in a comfortable room, with free meals. It was actually a lot like the dorms. I lived with 19 other people, so it was important to be mindful of keep- ing clean and cooperating. The only things that I didn ' t like were the maintenance costs. We were liable for all damages. " Co-ops provided a rich variety of social events for its members. " One of the great things is how easy it is to make friends with the people you live with, " said Shankar. " We have campfires, watch television together, and cook together. Sometimes, we just talk. A couple times a year, co-ops throw parties, where we invite other co-ops. " Other social events included formats, special dinners, and dances. Of course, co-ops were not perfect for everyone. " Sometimes, although we ' re all supposed to do our share of work, it ' s difficult to give equally, " said Samarasinha. However, for the most part, members of co-ops put in an earnest effort to create a smoothly operating, warm community, making the experience truly cooperative.

HOUSING 297 Anxious students await letters from home youVe got By Chelsea Anderson While embarking on their first time away from home, students experienced the excitement and often the dis- appointment of mail. Varying in form from the simple letter to the oversized package, students checked their mail daily, eager to see if someone cared enough to send something. There were those students who received packages weekly, and others that weren ' t so lucky. LSA freshman Ian Young received a mere two packages the during the semester. " I received mail only two times the entire semester, it was depressing! " said Young, comparing his mail to his girlfriend ' s 20 packages. The first item was the movie Spiderman on DVD from his girl- friend, and the second a package of food from a neigh- bor. " I wish people would send me letters, " Young added. In early September, the mail trend began with a boom as parents, relatives, and friends flooded the dorm mail- rooms, but as the time wore on, the load decreased. Steph- anie McNees, a freshman in LSA, received an interesting surprise from her mother during the first few days of college life. Her mom sent her " The Twelve Days of College, " which consisted of various college necessities over the course of twelve days. " The first package really threw me off because I had no idea what my mom was doing, " McNees said, " and by the end, I had 12 lottery tickets, 22 sticky note pads, 36 floppy disks, 30 packs of gum, 40 stamps, 42 mini muffins, 40 Reese ' s, 36 envelopes, 42 packs of M . Ms, 30 Slim J ims, 22 storage bags, and 12 batteries. It was pretty overwhelming. " When a holiday passed, the mail increased as stu- dents received special care packages for the different holidays from home. In addition, there were special care packages put together which family members could purchase for their students. The " care packages " consisted of various snacks, coffee, and treats and were available during exam times cost- ing between $30 and $50. " Unfortunately my mom didn ' t send me any of the University ' s care packages, but what she sent throughout the year made up for it, " said McNees. Picking up flowers from the troK deSK of no ' dorm, a student smiles at her surpnse gift. Mail and special packages made average days better and stressful exam times brighter. Y.

Akitimuswru photo 302 MIC: HIGANENSIAN home for the HOLIDAYS By Eric Rajala Lauren Rutledge Going home for the holidays was a source of great relief for many students yearning for a release from the pres- sures of schoolwork and exams. The out-of-staters lined up at crowded airports, hoping the tight security measures would not cause them to miss their flights. Nearby students packed into their cars and drove off to spend the holiday season with their families and friends. There was hoth a good and bad side to returning home, however. Despite the absence of school deadline pressures, returning to the rules of parents ' houses could be a difficult contrast to the freedoms of a collegiate lifestyle. For senior psychology major Kim Schaich, the contrast was lessened by her hometown ' s proximity to Ann Arbor. " My parents only live about 10 minutes away, so I just stayed in Ann Arbor and enjoyed the break from classes. 1 went home for Christmas Day, which was nice, but extended family invaded my house, so I decided to just stay in town for the rest of the time, " Schaich explained. Normal bedtimes reverted to their conven- tional hour, and many unmentionable habits were forced to disappear from sight for the duration of the vacation. At times, a lack of school pressure was made up for by pressure from parents about grades and future plans; the rocky economy left the job market thin for another class of graduates, and career ambitions were commonly put on hold for graduate school or less desirable, menial jobs. Invariably, high school acquaintances changed after graduation, and this could be both positive and nega- tive. It was always a pleasure to visit and catch up with old friends, and the closest companions remained as such. Still, some former friendships grew distant; characters matured and changed and families relocated. While the circle of friends may have tightened, it could still be fun to bump into an old face. " The night before Thanksgiving is always the best night to see everyone from high school out at the bars, " attested senior LSA student Bruce Haywood. There were some students who did not jump at the opportunity to leave campus. " When I ' m at home, I miss my boyfriend a lot, " said junior English major Stephanie Wentworth. " It is nice to see my family and get that home cooking, though. " Traveling home offers a break to students HOUSING 303 West Quad West Quad 2nd Lloyd - Front Row: Anjali Mehra. Kimberly Johnson.

Upon arriving at school, a new presence was immediately thrust upon each dorm resident. Off-campus life was not devoid of this plight either; plenty of houses and apartments included shared bedrooms. While cost efficient, a roommate posed the danger of becoming problematic. With classes and school- work bearing down, a good night of sleep was essential. " I did all my studying at the library so I wouldn ' t keep my roommate up, " recalled senior LSA student Kendra Byrne. " I slept like a log, so her late nights never bothered me. " Even the usage of wall space could develop into conflict or friendship. " My roommate put up this big, raggedy Wu-Tang poster on move-in day. Naturally, we didn ' t really get along, " junior political science student Noah Seneca lamented. Even a personal bedroom could not save many people from the tribulations that came with close prox- imity to others. Community bathrooms gave students many headaches and upturned noses, as issues ranging from urgency to varying hygienes caused added dis- tress. " My housemate used to use my bar of soap in the shower, " complained senior LSA student Jason Charo. " It ' s not that gross when you don ' t have to think about it, but he always left a ton of hair stuck on the soap. " Not all new roommates became friends, and some old friends were made enemies through the oft- hard task of sharing space. The roommate could never totally vanish, which was why it was helpful to make concerted efforts to be as mindful as possible of a cohabitant ' s needs. Mutual respect fostered some very positive relationships, while poor communication and intrusive mannerisms produced some animosity. 306 MR After hosting a party. LSA students and roommates Robert Bourke and Nathan Griffin take their cans back for a cash refund. Many roommates enjoyed one another ' s company, often doing chores or other errands together. K.

Many dorms held nights where residents could gather in the cafeteria to eat and chat with other residents, 1. Ne f photo ecial LJ Ji. S D O fl S O I " flJ.Il 3,HCl programs special ACTIVITIES By Kara DeBoer Regardless of a student ' s year at the University, dormitory life provided a strong social network and an outlet for community outreach. Every dorm on campus offered its own distinctive opportunities for residents. Of all dorms on campus, East Quad boasted the most creative activities. From the dorm ' s own theatre troupe, the RC Players, to its art gallery and performance venue, the " Half Way Inn, " residents benefited from a plethora of artistic programs. One of the year ' s first performances, An Evening of Scenes, was acted out by dorm residents. Confronting the year ' s most relevant political issue, resi- dents of East Quad also performed a Semi-Guerilla Play about Bush ' s Proposed War on Iraq. Multicultural councils in many dorms headed the orga- nization of dorm activities. Nick Rutledge, LSA sophomore and member of the West Quad A ' Subuhi multicultural council, said the dorms offer " a good chance for students to branch out and get a taste of a different culture. " The A ' Subuhi council sponsored two speakers for Native American Heritage Month, including a University professor. Rutledge said the council also spon- sors Westifest, a dorm-wide end-of- year celebration. Akshay Bajpaee, LSA sophomore and peer advi- sor for his Couzens Michigan Community Scholars Pro- gram, said dorm activities help students " connect with other people in their residence hall. " He said, " It provides good social stability. " The Couzens MCSP organized movie nights, a haunted house trip, community service programs, and a forum following the events of 9-11 featuring pro- fessors and experts on world politics. Nadya Sheikh said Couzens was also home to student interest groups. " We have a group called the ' midnight runners ' who go running at 9:30 p.m. three times a week, and also a birthday com- mittee who decorates students ' doors, " she said. All students at the University could find a dorm fulfilling their custom needs. From intramural sports and yoga classes to craft and " open mike " nights, at least one had what every student liked. Even the most randomly placed freshmen could find a home away from home.

Third party vendors allowed women to meet all the men in a specific fraternity house. photo courtesy Alpha Phi 3 iO MlCHIGANENSIAN pary venors By Andrea Link Greeks at the University were stereotyped as being big partiers. While that was not always true, they did know how to have a good time under the proper conditions. These included a fun venue, lots of people, and usually a few drinks. Third party vendors, named so because they typically involved a sorority, a fraternity, and a bar or club, were a fun way for Greeks to take a break from the pressures of school. The off-campus location of these parties provided an oasis from the monotony of constantly being in one city. " I am from out of state and never get to see much of Michigan except Ann Arbor. Third Party Vendors are so much fun to start with, and leaving Ann Arbor for the night is an additional perk, " said sophomore Kelly Liebman. Another perk of a third party vendor was that it gave Greeks the chance to be- come closer to another house. Since the party involved only one fraternity and one soror- ity, students were able to really get to know the house they were partying with and make new friends. Additional thrills were added when the party fell during a pledge period because of the traditions of pledge classes. " Some of the boys are so sensitive about their pledge pins. I tried to steal one pledge ' s pin, and he gave me his credit card instead because he ' d rather lose that than the pin, " said junior Katie Den Bleyker. Overall, Greeks enjoyed the chance to meet new people, bond with different houses, and escape the pressures of school in one fun-filled night. Third party vendors gave people from all houses the opportunity to have a classically good time in a new way. The women of Alpha Kappa Theta dug through their closets to find lust the right out- fits to wear for this " Pimps and Hos " themed party. Many Greeks enjoyed these types of parties because the themes allowed them to wear different outfits than they usually would. photo courtesy Ko pJ u Alpha Theta GREEKS 317 dfthpbi Andrew McQuarrie, Marc Schneidkraut, Kenney Lundburg, Peter Chu.

The hosting fraternity had only lost two Mudbowls in the past decade. photo courtesy Sigma Alpha Epsilon 320M ' HIGANENS1AN I paying in e By Melissa Mariola Chilly autumn temperatures did not make the participants of Mudbowl any less determined for victory as the 69th annual Mudbowl kicked off Homecoming on October 26. Sigma Alpha Epsilon faced Sigma Nu ending with a score of 1 2-6 as SAE reclaimed the champion title after last year ' s loss, keeping their house record alive with only two losses in the last decade. During halftime, Delta Gamma challenged last year ' s champions Delta Delta Delta in the sorority game. " We played our hearts out. Being a part of the whole game despite our loss was an experience in itself, " said Jenna Naylor, a member of the Tri-Delt team. DG succeeded with an early touchdown and a final score of 6-0. Ten fraternities and seven sororities spent weeks practicing to enter into the bracketed tournament that was held the weekend prior to the game in hopes of reaching the final championship. Sigma Alpha Epsilon ' s traditional Mudbowl was played on the morning of the Homecoming game against Iowa. It raised over $5,700, nearly double the amount from preceding years, for Mott ' s Children ' s Hospital through local business, alumni, parent, and student sponsors. In addition, every house that vied for the chance to play wrote a $150 check directly to the hospital. David Burciaga, Vice President and Mudbowl Coordinator for SAE, said, " when people come out to see the Mudbowl, they just see it as a football game that we hold. I don ' t think that they see the good in the event which is really the whole purpose behind the Mudbowl, to do some good for the community and give some- thing back. " Approximately 2,000 people crowded the surrounding lawn of the muddy football field next to SAE on the corner of South University and Washtenaw. Months of preparation brought only one minor problem. Water, which was tra- ditionally donated by the fire department, was unable to be supplied for the first time in probably sixty years " due to liability and due to budget constraints, " according to Burciaga. Instead, a pool attendant trucked in 9,000 gallons of water that the SAE brothers used to prepare the field by walking on the held for three hours. The event received national recognition as ESPN came to film the game. An excerpt was played during the Michigan vs. Iowa game and a play from the Mudbowl was selected as the 9th choice in the Top Ten Plays of the Week on television. The first thing this Delta Gamma sister wants to do after winning the sorority Mudbowl was give her friend a muddy hug. Delta Gamma and Delta Delta Delta members played even rougher then the young men in Sigma Alpha Epsilon and Sigma Nu. photo courtesy Sigma Alpha Epsilon GREEKS 321 TA1 sigifKrcfefta tau Front Row: Cynthia Shapiro, Alexis Newman, Lindsey Ross, Lauren Kantor, Carty Brandess.

There were approximately 50 members and eight pledges. " Because we are smaller, we actually know everyone in the sorority and get along with everyone. Not too many sororities can say that, " said Maggie Weston, a junior in LSA and president of Alpha Gamma Delta. Alpha Gamma Delta ' s main philanthropic event for the year was the Alpha Gamma Pie Slam. The Pie Slam was discovered when the sisters attended the interna- tional Greek conference. " While at the conference, we shared ideas for philanthropic events, and the sorority from Southern Illinois suggested a pie slam, " said Weston. " We decided to try to make it a big event here at the University for both now and the future. " The Pie Slam took place on the Diag, following the Homecoming game against Iowa. Prominent University leaders volunteered to have pies thrown at them. Students paid to throw pies at the human targets after returning from the game. The money raised sup- ported juveni le diabetes research. The Pie Slam was so successful that it became an annual event for the sisters of Alpha Gamma Delta. Throughout the year, Alpha Gamma Delta sisters and pledges took part in Greek Week events, Sigma Chi Derby Days, date parties, barn dances, football tailgates with fraternities, and formals. They also played intramural sports getting to know each other both on and off the field. " We had a strong sisterhood with such a small chapter, and that allowed us to really know each other, " said Ryan Baril, a junior in LSA and Vice President of Operations. Front Row: Christine M.

The Panhel- lenic Association served as the bigger body for the sororities. It was created in the first decade of the twentieth century with goals including working on issues and voting on poli- cies and procedures for the different sororities. The Panhellenic Association council consisted of a sorority member elected from each house. The council also included an executive board where ten women were elected to work with a staff member. All campuses that had National Panhellenic Conference sorori- ties received support from the National Panhellenic Conference by receiving money for Greek events. Executive Vice President of the executive board Dana Holcman said of her involvement, " I have had so many leadership opportunities, friendships formed, and memo- rable experiences that I will never forget. Being a part of the sorority as well as the larger Greek community has made me a better person. " The Panhellenic Council, additionally, concentrated on the recruitment process, referred to as Rush. Each year about 900 students took part in Rush. These students decided to become a part of the Greek community on campus. This council gave sorority women a chance to be involved not only in a single sorority, but the Greek community as a whole. Front Row: Megan Kern.

Wemer photo The history of Alpha Chi Omega was unlike any similar organiza- tion present on campus. In 1894, at the annual convention of Alpha Chi Omega, the founders of the group decided to publish a journal, which was later titled The Lyre of Alpha Chi Omega. The first edition was forty pages in length, and contained the chapter histories of the four existing chapters active at the time, as well as personal news of alumni and recital programs. The publication was central to the sorority; in fact, starting in 1915, young women interested in joining Alpha Chi Omega were required to purchase the magazine as their initiation fee. The journal included a lifetime sub- scription to The Lyre of Alpha Chi Omega. What was also unique to Alpha Chi Omega was the organization ' s extraordinary diversity. Members of the sorority came from across the United States and represented countries all over the world. This year, the group had more than 500 members residing in foreign countries. Alpha Chi Omega was renowned for its philanthropic activity. In the 2001-2002 academic year, Alpha Chi Omega granted more than 40 scholarships and fellowships, amounting to nearly $25,000. Originally a women ' s fraternity whose membership was restricted to students enrolled in the School of Music, the group adjusted its mem- bership policies within a few months of its inception, and changed the requirement so that liberal arts students could be included. The music requirement no longer existed. In place of the music requirement were five membership criteria: academic interest, character, financial responsibility, leadership ability and personal development. As Alpha Chi Omega continued to grow and expand its member- ship, it had nevertheless proven the test of time. Although it has under- gone changes since its founding over one century ago, it had remained true to its mission statement. 328 MlCHIGANENSlAN A ATT apha deta pi By Jana Kantor At the past three national conventions, the Beta Eta chapter of Alpha Delta Pi.was the recipient of the Golden Lion award, the most prestigious award granted by A D Pi nationals. This award was given to the chapter that " excels in service, sisterhood, scholarship, and social activities, " according to Mary Ervin, the public relations chairman. The chapter receiving this award must be extremely active on campus, and that was definitely the case for these women at the University. The sisters of Alpha Delta Pi participated in and coordinated numerous philanthropic events. They raised $16,000 for the Ronald McDonald house, their national philanthropic foundation. Throughout the year, members of Alpha Delta Pi went to the Ronald McDonald house on campus to make dinner and bake cookies. They also had a " mitten tree, " an extra Christmas tree that served as a location for people to donate blankets, scarves, mittens, and other articles of clothing to a nearby women ' s shelter during the holiday season. Alpha Delta Pi ' s biggest event was Mr. Greek Week, a beauty pageant with a twist. Greek Week teams selected one male to represent the team. He then dressed in drag, and worked the stage, showing off his feminine side. The entire Greek community looked forward to this event so they could see their favorite frat boys wearing make-up and d resses. Although they were extremely involved on campus, the sisters of Alpha Delta Pi knew how to have a good time. They planned the largest third party vendor last year, a toga party with eight additional Greek houses at Barnstormer ' s. In November, they " Got Down in D-Town " at the Center Street Pub with other Greek houses, and still managed to keep their house grade point average above the Panhellenic mean. Noelle Egnatios, social chair of Alpha Delta Pi, stated, " AD Pi: we work hard, but play even harder.

' IAN By Andrea Link When first joining a fraternity or sorority, many students were intimidated by the close bonding that took place. They feared that the house would shape their lives, pos- sibly omitting friends and significant others. However, one way the Greek system helped to promote relationships with people outside each house by offering date parties. A date party was a chance for Greeks to invite a friend or significant other to at- tend a party. These parties usually took place at a bar or club away from campus. Greeks were able to party with both their housemates and their outside friends. " I find that the house takes up a lot of my time, " said junior Lizzie Brown. " Date parties are a great way for me to spend time with my boyfriend and the girls from the house. " Another thrill of the date parties were that they were usually themed, allowing both guys and girls to dress up. " Any excuse to go shopping is fine by me, " said sophomore Nicole Caparanis. " With themed date parties, I can have a reason to buy a new outfit. " The most awaited date party of the year for many houses was the formal. The formal allowed students to dress up and visit a lavishly decorated venue for a classy night out. Whether date parties were held at night clubs, ice skating rinks, comedy clubs, or even river boats, students enjoyed the opportunity to leave the confines of school in the trusted hands of their house and a friend or significant other. Taking a break from the action, four brothers of R Kappa Alpha fraternity show off their boda bags. Boda bags were very popular party favors since they were both functional and served as souvenirs. photo courteny Pi Kappa Alpha GREEKS 331 gamma phi beta By Andrea Link Love, labor, learning, and loyalty, the four ideals of the Gamma Phi Beta sorority, were proven in many ways throughout the year. The value of love was strong and constant. This was demonstrated as girls walked to class, studied, and partied together. " Gamma Phi Beta has blessed me with my best friends and the best times. I treasure our Slurpee runs, bar hopping and late night chats with the girls, " said senior Megan Rooney. Labor in the form of philanthropy was an essential part of the house. From the Chili Cookoff to Dance Marathon, the sisters of Gamma Phi Beta put a lot of effort into helping others. " The community gives so much to the Greek system, it is crucial that we give back. Gamma Phi has always supported camping, and with five chapters throughout Michigan, Campfire USA helps us interact with the kids, " said philanthropy chair Melissa McGivern. The ideal of learning was apparent through new member educa- tion, rewards for receiving A ' s, and study tables. " Study tables allow our sisters to come together and help one another by sharing our talents, " said sophomore Christina Slupek. Finally, loyalty was the most cherished ideal. Many sisters lived in the house their senior year, and were actively involved in many activities. As senior Erika Wilson stated, " I have moved around a lot in my life and the Gamma Phi house has been my home for the past three years. I will be sad to leave but at the same time I will always hold Gamma Phi close to my heart. " Front Row: Hand Ren, Kim Garelick, Hyun Lee. Taylor Demorest, Jen Larkin.

Re-instituted in April after leaving the Univer- sity for four years, Delta Upsilon ' s alcohol-free and non-secretive policies made it a unique and wonderful addition to not only the Greek community, but the whole campus as well. " 1 am confident that there will be a big tran- sition in the Greek system within the next ten years, with many fraternities becoming mandated to be dry. I think we are the pioneers of this transi- tion, " explained Brandon Phenix, the president. Delta Upsilon was made up of a diverse group of 31 brothers, from different socio-economic backgrounds and ethnicities, sharing a variety of majors, from engineering to architecture. They also held the highest grade point average in the Greek system. Offering an alternative to parties and alcohol, Delta Upsilon engaged in everything that built brotherhood. Philanthropy, academics, athletics, and social events were a few examples of what was important. Delta Upsilon ' s social events included sorority dodge ball; philanthropy interests included setting up a Boys and Girls Club connection, highway adoptions, and erecting a field goal post in front of the house for a charity field goal kicking event during homecoming. " After a year of hard work, the whole University community was able to see the fruits of our labor, as Delta Upsilon was really beginning to shine through at the University as a reminder of what a fraternity was meant to be, " said Chris March, an LSA sophomore.

" A coalition of Greek members, known as the steering committee, served as the aficionados of the many events. This committee, made up of representatives of each house, planned the blood drive, Diag Day, Palmer Field Day, Mr. Greek Week, State Street day, and Variety and Sing. Each day of Greek Week challenged the competing teams to utilize their wit and brawn in order to earn the title of Greek Week champion. " 1 was talked into representing my team by par- ticipating in Variety this year. Although I wasn ' t too excited about the idea of shaking it in front of the entire Greek community, I actually had a really great time, " remembered Bill Saindon, engineering senior and Theta Xi brother. Greek Week produced many memorable moments from the different events. Some of the favorites included edgy themes like " fo " shizzel " , " your mom " , and " we ' re so money. " Also, the Lip Jam theme " taking the mike and working it like a rock star " proved to be a favorite of all. Other fun moments included busting out 80s dance moves, walk- ing to class dripping with sweet Jello nectar, boys acting like Britney Spears in order to earn the title " Mr. Greek Week " , and lastly and most importantly, meeting the children of Camp Heartland to which a majority of money earned from Greek Week was donated. The spirit and enthusiasm in which Greek Week was celebrated transformed not only the Greek community, but also the University, into a charitable celebration th at would form memories to last a lifetime.

Greek Week was always a huge event for the Greek community, so fittingly, people were anxious to find out what team they were on, and what other houses were on their team. The attendence was also boosted by the fact that the winter semester had just begun and students were not yet bogged down by the weight of school work. Pairings Party started at 8 p.m., with the drawing of teams starting soon thereafter. A " Plinko " style board stood on the dance floor and was used for determining the teams. A representative from each sorority was selected to drop plinko chips down the board, leading the way to a lucky match-up. While most teams consisted of two fraternities and a sorority, the four largest fraternities played independent of other male teammates. In addition to finding out one ' s teammates, the Pairing Party was also one way to start accumulating points for the house for Greek Week. Furthermore, because it was a Greek Week event, part of the cover charge helped to support the campaign which raised money for Camp Heartland, a camp for terminally ill children. The night also helped houses to get their spirit up in preparation for Greek Week. " Pairings party was so much more fun this year than in the past. The pliko board made the selection process so much more interesting then when we used to just draw names, plus being 21 and able to drink at the bar made the night way more fun, " said Megan Johnson, senior dance major, " Touch- downs has much cuter staff then Rick ' s too, so changing the location this year was cool. " This Phnko-style board was used to pair sorontes with fraternities for Greek Week. One representative from each sorority dropped a chip on the board, and whichever fraternity it landed on was their partner for Greek Week. photo courtesy Kelly LtVbmun GREEKS 339 kappa gamma By Erica Chernick Not only do Kappa Kappa Gamma women party together, but they also spend time play- ing sports out on the field.

As stated on the group ' s website, the women ' s organization provided each of its members " life bonds of friend- ship, mutual support, opportunities for self-growth, respect for intellec- tual development and an understanding of and an allegiance to positive ethical principles. " Through the high standards upheld by its members, Kappa promoted a " broad college experience, scholarship and intellectual development, " which the organization deemed its first priority, along with its philanthropic activities. Kappa prided itself on its ability to provide members with the opportunity to form strong friendships and support sys- tems. Kappa Kappa Gamma encouraged members to take advantage of opportunities available to them for individual growth in the many interests of the chapter and campus community. The organization provided numer- ous leadership opportunities and scholarship programs. Kappa placed par- ticular emphasis on each individual aiming to achieve her personal best in the ' mutually supportive environment ' that the organization created. Established in 1989, the Kappa Kappa Gamma Foundation worked to support the values of scholarship, leadership, ethical principles and ser- vice to the community, principles on which the sorority was founded in 1870. Because of the generous monetary contributions of Kappa members, the Foundation was able to give over $750,000 to support the following programs: scholarships, Rose McGill Fund, Educational and Leadership Programming, Heritage Museum, and the Stewart House Museum. 340 Mic; HIC.ANENSIAN on By Jana Kantor The brothers of Psi Upsilon were very happy this year. After low recruitment for fraternities in general over the past two years, Psi Upsilon doubled their membership and recruited twenty-one men during the 2001-2002 year. " The large increase was due to the huge success of last year ' s rush. From Minnesota to Oklahoma, Florida to California, the Phi chapter of Psi Upsilon is well represented, " stated Justin Hansen, Archon of Psi Upsilon. Winterfest was the annual charity event thrown by Psi Upsilon. Every winter, the brothers built an ice rink in their back yard. Fraternities competed in a hockey tournament to raise money for the charity of their choice. Previously, Psi Upsilon donated their funds to the Humane Society and UNICEF. This year, they even added a broomball competition to get sororities participating in their philanthropy. Also during the winter term, Psi Upsilon maintained their excellent house grade point average, one of the best on campus, and planned the Battle of the Bands with Alpha Delta Pi. Numerous local bands played all night, as the audience danced and sang to the music. Psi Upsilon not only was an active member in the Greek community by contributing money to a myriad of charities, but they also planned many parties to promote Greek life at the University. " There is an optimistic attitude within the house; it is an attitude that is bound to bring future success. There is an immense amount of respect between brothers and for the house in general. The members are united, " as Hansen proudly proclaimed. It was certain that Psi Upsilon would be a huge asset to the University in the future.

Almost weekly, an editorial was published and vehemently refuted in The Michigan Daily, and those inside and outside the system clashed with love and hate-filled sentiments about its true ideology. Talking with members of fraternities and sororities paints a different picture than one would predict from outside slander. Junior Laura Butler was President of Sigma Kappa and listed off several ways her house provided more than just a social life. " Each year, we as a chapter donate to the Alzeimer ' s Association, volunteer at Brookhaven retirement home for Valentine ' s Day, and deliver motor meals every Saturday. The Greek system involves students both on campus and in the community at large, " she said. Insofar as the social scene was concerned, Butler also argued that the system is trying to better its reputa- tion. " We ' re trying to move the social scene out of the fraternity environment and into a more structured and more safe scene. " Engineering junior Peter Moes, member of Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity, said he did not dispute the fact that the Greek system " buys friends, " but argued that there were many other member benefits. " I ' ll admit that that is one way to look at it if that is the outlook someone wants to take, then that ' s okay, " he said. " But the concept is applicable to any organization you pay to join and the friends you make as a result, like an honor society. The Greek system offers students leadership roles both in each house and outside in the community. " Moes said the Greek system helped students stay involved at such a busy Uni- versity as Michigan, saying that many students attested to being involved in high school but running out of time in college. The Greek system " lays out " a lot of opportunities and had groups already actively volunteering, he added. There was no doubt that the debate will continue. A place existed for every stu- dent to be involved at the University, whether it be a club, organization, group of friends, job, or a house in the Greek system. The fact remained, however, that being a part of the Greek system made it easier to become involved with philanthropic events on campus. Shooting a hoop, a student volunteers some time to participate in anchor slam.

I remember her words to this day and I have found that place. " The young ladies of Sigma Kappa do more than just provide one another with lifelong friendships. According to LSA junior Andrea Peinado " Philanthropy is a very big commitment in our house. We are involved in an annual Alzheimers walk and collect items for the Maine Sea Coast Mission. Every week we participate in Motor Meals and do many activities with the Brookhaven Retirement Home. " While balancing academics, social events and their extensive community contri- butions the members of Sigma Kappa manage to participate widely in both intramural and varsity sports at the University. They also have put together a house that they consider to be " a diverse, fun and friendly atmosphere with many girls from different states and from a variety of cultural backgrounds " , says Peinado. Ciullo concludes by saying " I am very proud of my sisters and can honestly say that this overwhelming ' house on a mountain ' has become my comfortable home " .

It was a crucial part of being a Greek, which was why every sorority and fraternity was required to plan and participate in an annual philanthropy. These events tested the creativity and charitability of each house. They included everything from Lambda Chi ' s winterland theme to an event at Delta Upsi- Ion to see how far one could throw things. Matthew Goldenberg, a brother at Alpha Epsilon Pi, said that their annual philan- thropy, a music concert, " made over $1000 which was donated to Mott ' s Children ' s Hospital and the U of M Breast Cancer research fund. " Another popular event was Delta Epsilon ' s pancake breakfast. This sorority invit- ed all Greeks and other members of the community over to their house in order to combine their philanthropy with community relations. Besides large annual events that raised hundreds of dollars, the Greek community also did monthly projects and helped support charitable foundations. For instance, Alpha Epsilon Pi brothers tutored children at Angell Elementary School and served food at the Ronald McDonald House. The Gamma Phi Beta sorority also had a monthly philanthropic event. In March, the house focused on Dance Marathon by making posters. Other sororities or fraternities did things like sponsor a family or donate presents to local shelters during the holiday sea- The men of Pi Kappa Phi meet with their bikes before PUSH America, their annual philanthropy.

Many Greek houses, especially fraternities, had house pets which in many cases represented the goals and ideals of the house. The fraternity Pi Kappa Phi had a house pet that was an iguana named Benjamin Cheech. Jared Ryan, a junior history major and the president of Pi Kappa Phi noted the fact that Benjamin Cheech shed his worn-out skin on a regular basis. " That process is symbolic of Pi Kapp ' s ability to change with the times and continually grow in our brotherhood as well as in the Greek community, " Ryan explained. Similarly, Sigma Phi had a very large black dog named Gus. Appearing similar to a bear, the dog was a symbol of the fraternity ' s strength and unity. Animals were not only symbolic of Greek goals and ideals, but they were often just fun to have around, reminding members of a family pet from childhood. Ranging from dogs to turtles to hamsters to reptiles, house pets provided a more domestic feel to the large houses they lived in, and gave Greeks something cuddly and cute to call their own. Holding her two newly acquired hamsters, senior Jessie Knapp proves there are ways to get around house rules about pets. Many Greeks kept quiet pets in their rooms if their house did not condone a large pet. photo courtesy Qamma Phi Beta 350 MR: HIUANF.NS1AN Alpha Epsilon Pi ' s house snake slithers around in the lank it knows as home.

Proux photo GREEKS 351 a new way o ie By Jennifer Lee The hot topic under debate was parties, and what came from the Interfraternity Council, IFC, was a new Greek social policy. " The goal of the new policy is to redirect parties on this campus, " said junior political science major Ruby Hiramanek. The reason for the new direction of parties came from liabilities. " It is too risky for the presidents of fraternities to carry all of the weight of frat parties on campus. Situations such as girls getting raped, underage drinking, and death are too much for an undergradu- ate to deal with, " said junior biology major Timothy Brunell. Therefore, the IFC wanted to move parties from on-campus to third party vendors, places such as bars in Detroit, and then the liability was on the bars instead of the presidents of the house. Another issue with parties centered on funding. Fraternity parties usually squan- dered the monetary funds of most fraternities because sororities were not allowed to help pay for them, which was a national rule. " By moving parties off-campus, this will allow sororities to be able to help pay for the parties and then the burden will not be all on fra- ternities, " said Hiramanek. Students in the Greek system did not take the new social policy lightly. " The new social policy pretty much sucks. The IFC are making so many rules and regulations it is becoming ridiculous. I mean you can barely have a party on campus now without get- ting some sort of violation or get put on social probation, " said senior business major Brad Cardon. Yet, the IFC wanted to change the reputation of the Greek System on campus by moving the parties from campus to other vendors. So more regulations meant less room for mistakes that could look bad to the national Greek system, and could help with rush numbers in the fall. " I understand the reasoning behind the new policy, but it takes away from the spirit of the Greek system and in the end, the new social policy will either not help or will just be ignored, " said Cardon.

Although serving cans of beer was more expensive and left a bigger mess, individual containers offered a safer drinking option for campus greeks. S.

" The mission statement of the Greek organization, according to the fraternity ' s president, was " to promote lifelong friendships, to reaffirm high ethical standards and values, and to foster personal development in the pursuit of excellence. " In addition, the fraternity strived to afford each of its brothers ample opportunity to develop " responsibility, leadership, scholarship and social skills in order to become a fully contributing mem- ber of society. " The members of Phi Gamma Delta primarily lived accord- ing to these fundamental values: friendship, knowledge, service, morality and excellence. Phi Gamma Delta, known as Fiji, was founded at the University in 1885. Initially closed in 1999 and subsequently recolonized in 2002, there were more than one hundred recommendations for men, over 50 in- terviews conducted and over 24 bids given out and 24 accepted. This year, there were 24 men in the first pledge class; these 24 individuals consisted of two seniors, one junior, one sophomore and 20 freshmen. Phi Gamma Delta ' s primary objective was to find men who, as Jacobs said, " fit the profile of a scholar, an athlete, a leader, and above all else, a gentleman. " They majored in various areas, including engineering, pre-business, pre- med, chemistry, biochemistry and history, among others. Jacobs added that members of Phi Gamma Delta were broth- ers in a fraternity that " focuses on its founding principles and leadership development, and not so much on the stereotypical aspects that currently plague many fraternity chapters. " He noted that its members " find a strong balance between development and mature social activity. " Front Row: Jon Sockolosky Enk Syrjanen. David E.

Yet, there were times when every student wished he or she had had a parent there to pay bills and clean. In the Greek system there was the perfect medium for such students, as all fifteen sororities as well as one fraternity had house mothers who took care of such " dirty work. " Sorority women were more inclined to seek a house mother who would take care of the issues of cooking, cleaning, and house improvements but only one fraternity on campus embraced this position. " A sorority cannot function without the presence of an older person. It means stability, it means security, it also means a person that they can come to at any time with a problem they cannot solve themselves, " explained Dalys Vogel, the house mother for the sorority Alpha Epsilon Phi. With a background in education, she used her role not only to watch over the house but also to help tutor the girls. Growing up in Ann Arbor and graduating from the University of Michigan, she understood the campus enough to be able to offer guidance. Knowing that in some small way, she may have touched the lives of the girls made the constant daily work of the position more rewarding. Respectfully called Aunt June by the brothers of Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity with whom she shared her home, June Martin was the only fraternity house mother on campus. She started her position here in 2000 when the house was brought back to campus, but came from a 22-year background as a house mother in Texas. She guided the renovations of the house and continually searched for ways to better the housing conditions for her surrogate sons. She and all other house mothers opened their doors and their hearts to people who they not only loved but who loved them in return. After a long day parenthg her " daughters.

He was a f riend of a stu- dent staying in Couzens, she was another friend of that same student. At first they were not even interested in dating, ac- cording to nursing student senior Julie Humphries, but four years later, they were engaged to be married. Engineering senior David Ward and Humphries were not out of college not yet in the " real world " yet had already found someone with whom to spend their life in it. The date was set for August 16, and she said afterward they would move wher- ever he got a job and continue their schooling. " He wants to get his MBA, and I want to become a nurse practitioner, " said Humphries. Becoming engaged became the trend for many nursing stu- dents, most of whom were seniors. Humphries referred to the commonality of seniors ' engagements at the University as an " epidemic " of sorts. The Michigan Daily published an in-depth feature on several engaged couples, and in most of them the bride-to-be was a nursing student. Humphries said she also knew a nursing senior last year who got married over the summer. Laura Martin, another engaged nursing senior, met her fiance Jason Cirillo while watching a fireworks show in Sterling Heights. He went to a neighboring school. She said they have been dating ever since, and would have married earlier if they had had the money. " The date is set for 2004 now, " she said. " I want a big, extravagant wedding, so we definitely need that time to save up money. " Plus, her parents STUDENTS IN T!HE NuRsiNq School follow T!HE of wanted her to wait to get married until she had finished school. Since Marten said school was very important her, waiting was not really an issue. Marten said having a non-University student for a boyfriend was both good and bad. " It was harder than for my girlfriends who had boyfriends here at school they saw theirs every night, " she said. " At the same time I could concentrate more on school work during the week, and always see Jason on the weekends. " When asked, Marten also testified to having known even more girls in the School of Nursing who were engaged. It is not just coincidence, she said, but was due to how guaranteed em- ployment opportunities in nursing were. " Nurs- ing is different from all the other majors, " she said. " When we are done with our four years of school, all we have to do is pass the boards and we are pretty much guaranteed a job, especially with the nursing shortage. It ' s not like some of the LSA majors, where you have to find out if you want to be a teacher or do whatever else with your degree. Pretty much right out of school, we have a job mak- ing about $20 per hour. Nursing is also very flexible, and it allows you to choose your schedule. You can work part time, full time, or even contingent. It ' s a good career when you are thinking about having kids. You can work as little as one day a week, or as much as full time. I think that has a lot to do with why nursing students are engaged and married sooner.

Sometimes what students learned from these times anything from the purchase of a kegerator to the frantic late night munchies ended up having great significance on their futures. Engineering senior Dillon Funkhouser said the most valuable lessons he learned involved living arrangements, procrastination, and beer. " I learned that a split- level apartment is better than a single level. me, you don ' t want to sleep next to the living room, " he said. No matter how similar his room- mates ' schedules were, he said they were most likely to be awake when he was trying to sleep. Funkhouser added that late-night recreation could teach one the consquences of procrastina- tion. " 1 learned that it is really easy to not do schoolwork at the beginning of the year, and then learn at the end that you ' ve screwed yourself, " he said. Senior year, Funkhouser had his own room far away from the living room the penthouse of a former fraternity house on Vaughn Street where he lived with many of his Bursley buddies. Here he learned the key to economical partying: " I learned that $400 for a keg- erator is pretty expensive, but saves a lot of money in the long run, " he said. Many students who lived in Bursley their freshman year SOMETJMES siudENis [EARN T!HE MOST JN SJTUATJONS FARTHEST FROM T!HE clASSROOM hearing how others have grown apart from their freshman aquaintances knows his experience at Bursley was truly unique. " I learned that unless you lived in Bursley, you just don ' t know you just don ' t understand how great it is, " he said. LSA senior Kelly Lecznar met her closest friends in her Sigma Kappa sorority house, and she said the most valuable lessons learned there concerned social skills and criminal know-how. " I learned how to deal with different types of people. Living in a sorority house with 70 girls teaches you that, " she said. Being in a sorority guaranteed members no shortage of par- tying, and hence no shortage of chances to meet that special someone. But according to Lecznar, everyone one meets is not always that special, and one has to be careful in how one responds to guys ' requests for ones number: " I learned to never give out your number unless you really want to be called, " she said, adding " at least not your real number. " One night when Lecznar and her friends returned to the sorority house after a long night out on the campus, they learned their most memorable lesson ever: how to break and enter. " One night my friends and 1 were really hungry, but the kitchen in the sorority locks at 5:30, " she said. " I used a spatula to pry open the window and hoisted my friend ten feet into the window so she could go around and unlock the kitchen door. " From the kinds of knowledge these seniors considered most important, it was obvious that college was about much more than aca- learned the benefits of living in the least popular dormitory on campus, demies. Students ' college experiences with everything from alcohol to Funkhouser said he was still close with everyone he met there, and from sleep affected their futures just as much... perhaps even more. 382 MlCHlG 5ANENSIAN A student catches up on world news during class.

For some students this included going to graduate school, medical school or law school. Other students decided to look for jobs or do community service programs. Students had to make the decision based on their desires and needs. For the students who could not imagine going on to any more school, the job market was one option. Since finding a job created a problem for students, the University offered resources to assist in the job search. One such HFN STl IflFNTS HIT place included The Career Center, formally known as Career Planning and Placement. The QFNIOR VFAR THF RUSH Career Center gave students a place to go find advice and resources to look for jobs. It provided an outlet for students to talk to companies and have a connection to the outside business world. One of the resources available included a refer- ence letter service. This service helped students to obtain letters of recommendation from profes- sors and also to send them off to companies. Another options for students included community service proj- ects. Such projects included Peace Corps and Teach for America. Peace Corps allowed students to take a few years and work in underdeveloped countries. Before they began to work in the business world, they took time to help the less fortunate. Teach for America allowed students to stay in the United States in order to help underprivileged schools TO fiquRE OUT T!HEJR FUTURES BECOME A Top " Having attended excellent schools since the age of five, I feel truly fortunate that I have been able to receive an excellent education, and I support Teach for America ' s vision of equal educational opportunity for all children in our nation, regardless of the child ' s socio-economic status. " The last option for students involved more school. This meant that the students had to continue doing homework and other academ- ics. In order to prepare for the application process, students had to take an entrance exam. Those entering graduate school took the GRE, those going to medical school took the MCAT and those going to law school took the LSAT. This became the first step in the application process. They then had to make the decision what area they wanted to live in and which schools they would apply to. After making these decisions, they applied and then had to make the final choice about where they would be attending school. Many seniors faced the dilemma of staying at the University or moving on to new experiences. By going to grad school, students were able to put off finding a job for a few more years. University alumna Nya McCarthy-Brown said of her plans, " I was a po- litical science major, pre-law; like most in their senior year, I was taking the LSAT and preparing to apply to law school. Once I learned about Teach for America, I knew it was what I wanted to do above all else. " The seniors had a numerous amount of options once they grad- in urban and rural areas. These graduates taught students in order to uated. They had to decide what would be more productive and worth- give back to the community. They committed themselves to two years of work for the program. Senior Meagan Carlock said of the program, while for them. Each student had the opportunity to use resources on campus in order to explore the choices that existed after graduation.

Often, the most signifi- cant moments did not take place in the classroom, but in the precious remaining time. With two majors, political science and vocal performance, it was quite remarkable that senior Josh Breitzer was able to find time for extracurricular activi- ties. A member of the Men ' s Glee Club and its a cappella subset, the Friars, Breitzer found one of his best memories among the company of fellow singers. " I remember performing in Hill Audi- torium to packed houses with the Men ' s Glee Club, " he said. " To see them all on their feet, clapping and singing ' The Victors ' with us always filled me with great pride in our University. " Senior biological anthropology major Zach Throckmorton contributed a different perspective to his time at the University. He admitted that his Univer- sity experience was such that he could not narrow it down to just one memory. He explained, " The list is just about infinite. The countless half-drunk half-tired-to-death conversations at 3 a.m. about grand top- ics concerning the origins of life, the meaning of existence, and why I AfiER T!HE T!HE UNivERsiiy, W!HAT iS REMEMbEREd JS NOT NECESSARily [JMJTEd TO W!HAT WAS JN ckss think Lisa Kudrow is the hottest Friend; the kids who say ' I ' m a first se- mester freshman but I have sophomore standing and I ' m pre-med; ' and getting Cs on exams I busted my ass preparing for, and getting As on exams I forgot about until they were handed to me. Academically, the most memorable moments were hearing my professors gossip about one another. I never really expected academic debates to degenerate to the level of, ' His wife did all the research, because he was out busy philandering! ' " For senior biology major Rob McTear, the most memorable moments were seasonal in na- ture. " The best time would have to be spending the summer in Ann Arbor, " he said. " It ' s relaxed, laid back, warm (for once), and girls run around everyday in very little clothing. Drinking on our roof and going to the bar five nights a week was not to be missed. " Often, the memorable times of University students were as diverse as the backgrounds and experiences of the students themselves. Regardless of whether one ' s experience consisted of studying, participating in an organization, or engaging in general debauchery, the times students spent at the University would prove to be remembered for years and lifetimes to come.

As the clock struck midnight on the night of their birthdays, new 21 -year-olds breathed a sigh of relief as they finally gained the legal right to drink. No longer would they have to worry about MlPs or fake IDs. Turning 21 introduced a whole new world of opportunities. Birthday celebrations took on different forms as some people chose to go to the bar right at midnight, while others had parties at their houses or apartments. Some people even came up with interesting ways to spice up their birthdays. For the more adventurous the night included taking 21 shots, while the more tame events included kissing 21 guys or girls or racing down the streets after the bars closed. Most people got taken out for their birthdays; some to nicer restaurants such as Chop House, Gratzi or Palio; while others were taken to Charley ' s, Max and Erma ' s, or Brown Jug to receive their free birthday meal. After eating most people would head to the bars to start drinking for the night. Some of the usual places to spend a 21st birthday included Charley ' s, Ashley ' s, Mitch ' s, Rick ' s and Scorekeeper ' s. At some of these bars the birthday boy or girl was even offered a free drink. Once at the bar the different types of drinks to order left new bar-goers speechless.

Who could forget the presents fo r turning 21? Industrial operations engineering student Chris Lawless remembered one of his better presents, " My sister said, ' I couldn ' t afford to get you a present, so I brought you 15 Michigan State girls. ' " The presents, just like the night, were a crazy mixture of fun and good memories. Some of the greatest memories of the birthdays happened late in the night after getting back from the bar. This was usually the point in the night where friends had to tell the birthday person the next day what had happened. Computer science senior Joe Lauer said of one of his roommates, " He wanted to sleep under the kitchen table wearing only his underwear and his pants as a cape, while telling anyone who touched him that he ' d kick their Turning 21 sometimes created a rift between friends: those that were 21 and those who were not. The novelty of going to the bar every night left the non-21 -year-olds alone. Senior English major Lauren Rutledge said o f this dilemma, " If you ' re under 21 and all your friends go to the bar, be prepared to never see them again. It ' s one huge, incestuous clique of debauchery. " Most 21st birthdays became a mingle of drunken fun, sexual encounters and making friends with the toilet.

such a simple name Survivor would take the mass media industry hy storm. The show had a strikingly ingenious and simple idea: take sixteen willing people, put them on an island, and see who fares best in a variety of real and engineered circumstances. Three years later, every network and channel had its own reality show based upon Survivor ' s format. Producers had redesigned the idea to fit many genres: romance (The Bachelor, The Bachelorette , Who Wants to Marry A Millionaire? , )oe Millionaire), sports (Fear Factor, The Real World: Battle of the Sexes), and pure celebrity-flaunting fun (The Osboumes, The Anna Nicole Show, Celebrity Mole), in which celebrities mixed with " real " people to often hilarious results. In theory, Survivor set out to make Lord of the Flies into reality, revealing the true nature and determination of humans and entertaining at the same time. However, debates continued as to how " real " the shows were and what effect they had on those who accepted their portrayals as recipes for real life. In the end, " Reality TV " captured the attention of the nation and capitalized upon many people ' s lives to gain TV audiences. On the day after their engagement aired on ABC. The Bachelor star Aaron Buerge and his rec, Helen Eksterowicz meet the excited media. The hit show focused around one man ' s hunt, through elimination, for the perfect woman.

Two bombs exploded at a deadly location and time on the island between a popular nightclub and cafe, a year, a day, and an hour after the twin towers ' destruction. At 4 a.m. October 13, flames still engulfed the scene. By 1 p.m., 180 people were confirmed dead, although most were still unidentifiable. Hospitals were overcrowded, all victims suffered from severe burns, and many had several other injuries. It was later determined that the explosions took the lives of people from 18 countries. 15 suspects, who either confessed or were connected to the attack, were arrested for the crime. One suspect, a militant Indonesian Muslim, confessed later that Osama Bin Laden and the al-Qaeda regime funded the attacks; however, the Indonesian government continued to deny the existence of hard evidence for the connection. In official commentary, the governor of Bali stated that the island remained calm but mournful after the events, and that he hoped Bali would continue its status as a popular vaca- tion spot for travelers worldwide. However, it would be a long time before anyone felt safe anywhere.

The 44,000-ton tanker carrying 77,000 tons of fuel oil was bound for Gibraltar from the Latvian Port of Riga. The Prestige leaked viscous oil into the rich, off-coast fishing grounds famous for its shellfish, octopus, and crabs. To protect their fishing and tourism industries, Spain and Portugal barred their ports from salvagers. Instead of having the vessel towed to their ports, two Spanish tugboats attempted to pull the tanker far away from the coast. A week from the initial leakage, the crippled oil tanker carrying more than 20 million gallons of heavy oil met its demise, as it sank off of Cape Finisterre, 130 miles off of Spain ' s northwest coast. Spanish officials were unable to confirm whether the vessel ' s bow was leaking, or if it was, how much. However, the stern section, which contained 7 million gallons of oil, sank with its tanks intact. Officials who had been working to clean up the oil from the initial leakage scrambled to protect the valuable fisheries along the coastline. They speculated a cleanup effort that would take as long as four years. If all of the oil had leaked, it would have been an unprecedented spill, more than double the size of the 1989 Exxon Valdez spill in Alaska ' s Prince William Sound. Lin Sinking into the depths of the Atlan- tic Ocean, the 20.5 million gallon oil tanker Prestige spills a disastrous amount of fuel into the sea. The tanker was towed away from the Spanish coast to sink AP photo Katz, Robyn Fae 380 Kaufman, Jodie 380 Kaufman, Jonathan 204 Kaufman, Jordan 256 Kaunpfe, David 318 Kawamura, Mari 226 Kawanishi,

" The five-member Norwegian Nobel Committee issued the above statement on December 10, 2002, and praised former U.S. President Jimmy Carter for his " untiring effort to find peaceful solutions to interna- tional conflicts, to advance democracy and human rights, and to promote economic and social development, " which, as the Committee ' s statement underscored, had been consistent and unfaltering for several decades. Carter, the 39th president of the United States, accepted the 2002 Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo, Norway. As the ex-president gratefully accepted the award, he encouraged people to strive toward establishing peace in a world that has become " a more dangerous place. " The 78-year-old was the third U.S. president to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, an award that consisted of a Nobel gold medal and diploma, along with a $1 million cash prize. The Nobel Committee drew attention to Carter ' s tireless efforts to promote peace, health, and human rights since the 1978 signing of the Camp David Accords between Israel and Egypt, as well as to his " decades of work seeking peaceful solutions and promoting social and economic justice.

Notably, Denzel Wash- ington also picked up the award for best actor. It was the first year in which black actors won both best actress and best actor awards. A tear- ful Berry said as she accepted the award, " This moment is so much bigger than me ... This is for every nameless, faceless woman of color for whom the door has been opened. " Berry won the award for her role in Monster ' s Ball, in which she played the wife of a man facing the death sentence. Later in the year she starred along Pierce Brosnan in the 20th James Bond movie, Die Another Day, and in the sequel to X-Men, X-2. Berry was born in 1968, and began her career as a model. She soon thereafter began acting on TV, and appeared in her first film approximately 1 1 years ago. She has appeared in 20 films since, and is often praised by critics for her on-screen performances.

Striking suddenly and without reason, the shooter preyed on seven civilians of varying age, gender, and race in less than a two-day span, killing six and wounding one. Before being apprehended, the ' D.C. Sniper ' claimed thirteen victims, three of whom survived their gunshots. A massive police and FBI search finally produced two su spects, found sleeping at a rest station in Maryland more than three weeks after their first shooting. The car, a blue Chevrolet Caprice, was the key identifier as well as only substantial description of a duo that wandered through Maryland, Washington, D.C., and Virginia, flaunting their seeming invisibility. The two suspects apprehended were John Allen Muhammad, 42, and John Malvo, 17. They left an indelible impression on the mindsets of residents who were forced to change their lifestyle for an unseen threat.

Fearing Saddam ' s nuclear weapons capabilities, inspectors trudged through Iraq, finding little to no evidence of a weapons stronghold. After exchanging political jabs with the U.S., the defiant Saddam announced that he was prepared for war, calling members of the international inspection team " friends and helpers of Satan. " In turn, British Prime Minister Tony Blair declared that Great Britain would aid the United States in a military offensive. As the New Year turned, the U.S. offered total immunity from prosecution to Saddam if he would choose an exile to Saudi Arabia that prevented war. The nervous world continued to watch and wait. Iraqi workers unload equipment from a U.N. plane carrying inspectors to Saddam International Airport in Baghdad.

The trapped workers were found alive late Saturday after rescue crew members drilled a shaft down to an air pocket where the miners had retreated, 240 feet below ground. The workers had been trapped there since the previous Wednesday night, July 24, when more than 50 mil- lion gallons of water from a neighboring abandoned mine flooded the Quecreek mine. " The water had beat us, " recalled Pennsylvania miner Randy Fogle. " It filled up to the roof at that point, and we just couldn ' t get out. " Mine Safety and Health Administration rescue personnel and technical specialists worked alongside several other state and federal offi- cials to free the trapped workers. Rescue workers drilled small holes down to the mine shaft where the trapped miners were presumed to be. Rescue crew members subse- quently pumped compressed air into the mine to contain the rising water, while workers drilled a hole to lower equipment that would ultimately pull them out. Around 3:30 am Thursday, rescuers drilled a six inch hole into the chamber into which the miners had moved in the hopes that rescue crew members would see them. Members of the rescue effort were able to communicate with the miners by tapping on a six-inch drill.

The aircraft, a twin-engine turboprop King Air private plane, went down sometime after 10 a.m. CDT on October 25. It took off from Flying Cloud Airport in Eden Prairie, Minne- sota just outside Minneapolis. After last having contact with the Eveleth- Virginia Airport for permission to land approximately seven miles away, the plane crashed in a wooded area about two miles from the airport. When the plane failed to land, a search party was sent out and found the remains of the plane engulfed in flames and smoke. Before Wellstone ' s death, he held a key Democratic seat in the U.S. Senate. As a two- year incumbent, he was in the midst a tough re-election against the former St. Paul Mayor Norm Coleman for the senate seat.

AP photo Still Going STRONG 11IGANENSIAN Operation Alamo Sweep was launched in early October 2002, marking a change in strategy in the U.S. Central Command ' s hunt for al Qaeda and Talihan fighters. As one of the largest operations since operation Anaconda, a major ground offensive in March 2002, 2,000 U.S. troops took over the search from special operation forces, who had previously been con- ducting many of the searches. The mission was to find, capture, or eliminate the remaining ele- ments of al Qaeda and the Taliban in Afghani- stan and along the border with Pakistan. Troops set up a forward operating base in the region at a location that was a " target rich environment, " according to commanding officer Col. Martin Schweitzer. Troops from the 82nd airborne division used Apache heli- copter gunships and Black Hawk helicopters to sweep the area, while conducting nighttime patrols to catch al Qaeda and Taliban forces off guard. They faced a difficult task, as al Qaeda and Taliban loyalists blended in easily with the local population, and were quick to changed sides. At the same time, the United States was working hard to maintain a healthy relation- ship with the new pro-U.S. Karzai government, while fighting al Qaeda without mistakenly kill- ing civilians. Such challenging scenarios were a potential reason for U.S. forces ' plans to stay in Afghanistan for the long haul.
