The town and campus were full of energy and endless opportunities. Whether dining on Main Street or painting the Rock, the 24,412 undergraduates shared experiences that made them come together as a community. Although well-known sites and stores changed with the times, the face of the University stood strong in its history and colors. Students enjoyed the timeless traditions such as avoiding the " M " , while attempting to add to the foundation with ' v their own experiences. Residing in one of the greatest college towns made Ann Arbor a remarkable home away from home for students from around the world. jB Meanwhile, being part of one of the most highly respected Universities in the nation made each student ' s college years filled with unbelievable memories. aevero i fct - James Earl Jones, Consider Michigan - A sense of accomplishment and tranquility washes over the ceremony as graduates file down the steps of the stadium. Although graduation was a time of exuberance, it left many students reflecting upon their past four years and their uncertain futures. Tedjasukmana photo 18 Michigan Life Celebrating the successful end to his college career, business school graduate Eric Frank shouts with excitement. Graduation day in the Big House was met by most students with enthusiasm and joy. L. Prottx photo In the early morning hours of April 26, seniors gathered together as they entered into Michigan Stadium for the last time as undergraduate students. Unlike familiar Saturdays in the Big House, graduates traded the usual blue and gold stadium attire for black caps and gowns that appropriately marked the end of an unforgettable four years. Students were both nostalgic and enthusiastic as they, along with family and friends, listened to the auspicious commencement ceremonies. Alumnus Michael Guttman explained, " On one hand you ' re sad that you ' re graduating, but as I sat with my best friends in Michigan Stadium where I saw so many great games, I couldn ' t help being so happy that I had four incredible years. " CO CD CD CD 13 CD ( i- CD hail to the graduates Speaker Governor Jennifer Granholm reminded students not only to look back but also to look forward. Some felt anxious and even affronted by her reminder of the difficult job-hunt and declining economy awaiting the graduating class in the months to come. " She told us that although we had now graduated from a great university, our accomplishments could not just end there. Instead of reflecting on the past four years, I found myself thinking about a very uncertain future. . .Yet I ' m confident that my whole experience at U of M, not just the academic aspect, will allow me to be successful, " described graduate Evan Lison. President Mary Sue Coleman also gave her first spring commencement speech, in which she reminded students to pursue " intellectual freedom " in the age of the information revolution. for Advanced Studies, doctor of humane letters; Hillel Shuval Lunenfeld-Kunen, Professor of Environmental Sciences at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, doctor of science; Judith Jamison, director of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, doctor of fine arts; and Dr. John Schwarz, former Michigan State Senator representing Battle Creek, doctor of laws. Most importantly, more than 6,400 undergraduate degrees were conferred to the class of 2003, making them a part of the largest living alumni base in the nation. During the ceremony, honorary doctoral degrees were conferred to Governor Granholm, doctor of laws; Oleg Grabar, professor emeritus at the Princeton Institute Graduation 19 avoiding the ' M ' dodging your R.A. wailing for a 2 a.m. bus it ' s all part of being a freshman LSA freshmen Molly Heitner andVicki Christner study in their Markley dorm room on a Friday afternoon. Many freshmen found the college workload heavier than imagined and had to sacrifice more time to studying. . Neff photo 20 Michigan Life Even while rushing to class, this student avoids stepping on the " M " in the middle of the Diag. Legend stated that anyone who stepped on the " M " before their first blue book exam would fail and few freshman dared to challenge that possibility. Y. Granata photo by Nicole Mammo It was an inevitable phase in the lives of all students a time where first impressions were important and everything seemed to matter. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, and it was the freshman rite of initiation to becoming a full-fledged University student. As much as all tried to deny their " freshness, " that first year sparked unforgettable memories. Walking across the Diag on the first day of classes, it was the duty of all new students to avoid setting foot on the infamous yet sacred " M. " This was no easy task, as friends nonchalantly pushed each other into its path. Many wondered, " Did riding a bike across it count? " Breaking into the party scene was an important rite of passage freshman year. It was done as a community: during the " frat crawl from Markley, " people paraded to parties with members of their own floor, their friends, and all acquaintances picked up along the way.The freshmen on North Campus had a plight all their own. " Partying was such a production if you lived in Bursley. We got so sick of having to make it back to C.C. Little by 2 a.m., " stated sophomore psychology major Lindsay Guinan. The hours of operation for campus buses posed a problem for partygoers who had to make the trip down from North Campus. Many freshmen had the urge to push the limits and test the waters with their authority figures. Freshman music and cellular molecular biology major Lucy Head described an episode she witnessed. " You know you ' re a freshman when you walk into an R.A. ' s room totally trashed, with a half full bottle of Smirnoff, babbling, ' whaat ' s up? ' " In the eyes of some, rules were made to be broken, and receiving warnings in the dorms from the resident advisor was a small price to pay for some fun. Regardless of embarrassing experiences or unpleasant situations, repeated traditions ensured that everyone went through a similar process in order to survive freshman year; and make sure that it was one that would be remembered for years to come.

The upscale coffee shop attracted serious studiers as well as artsy folk around town. . Ntff photo by Han-Ching Lin On Friday and Saturday evenings, Ann Arbor ' s Main Street bustled with families, couples young and old, and even high school students, many of them from out of town. Restaurants, bars, and a variety of stores lined both sides of Main Street between Williams and Huron, as well as the surrounding streets. Surprisingly, University students, who lived on campus not far away, were often missing fr om the picture. Some freshmen were generally unaware of this part of the city, while others found it inaccessible from central campus or too expensive for their college student budgets. However, for those who did make it downtown, one of Ann Arbor ' s most fun and colorful areas awaited. For many, the food in the area was the main draw. These ranged from fancy restaurants such as Gratzi and the Chop House to 24-hour diners such as the Fleetwood. " You can ' t go wrong with Middle Kingdom and Kai Garden. They definitely beat China Gate, " said Steven Assarian, an LSA freshman. A large number of bars and cafes could be found along the streets as well. These included Conor O ' Neills, Arbor Brewing Company, the Full Moon, and Espresso Royale and Sweetwaters Cafe. Aside from food, the Main Street area was also home to local businesses such as art galleries, gift shops, boutiques and outfitters. The Main Street area was not the most ventured of places for students because of several factors. " ! think Main Street is definitely one of the nicer areas around campus because it ' s aesthetically pleasing. However, it ' s far away, and I never have time to get there, " said Joel Weltman, an LSA junior. As far as many students were concerned, campus extended as far as South University and Washtenaw or State and Huron. Anything beyond that was an inconvenience to get to without a car or easy public transportation. Leslie Deckter, an LSA junior, found the restaurants and stores too pricey. " I feel like Main Street businesses have a monopoly of expensive restaurants that students can ' t afford at all, " she said. Although students did not visit the Main Street area as often as local residents and even out of- towners, they managed to make it downtown at least a few times during the year, whether it was a 21 st birthday at one of the bars, a date at a fancy restaurant, or shopping for a clothes item. For those who never found out about Main Street, or were too lazy to ever get to the area, they missed out on one of Ann Arbor ' s treasures. 22 Michigan Life cocktails for two a black and tan at the pub or late night hippie hash you ' ll find it all near main street The Fleetwood Diner attracts a late-night crowd of hungry people downtown.

For many students, summer was a time for relaxation and laziness where all the days blended together, interrupted by random naps. V. Granata photo During the summer, students remaining on campus relax and study on a beautiful day. While some classes were still in session, many students found the summer a time to lay back and enjoy the warm weather. S. Thomas photo 24 Michigan Life CD CD =3 CD summer in the city The summer of 2003 began just like any normal summer for the University ' s student body. The typical transition from winter to spring and summer semesters was apparent; Ann Arbor ' s fast, upbeat pace swarming with students was replaced with a calmer, less bustling environment on campus. Michael Koniuch, sophomore biopsychology major, reflected upon his stay for the spring semester. " Ann Arbor was a whole new place. It was quiet and the scene slowed down noticeably. I didn ' t mind the change, though; I found that it was easier to focus on my classes. " The usual problems for students findingjobs around Ann Arbor were the same as in years past. With fewer people in town, less working staff was needed at the restaurants, coffee shops and downtown stores. " I luckily found a job at the Afternoon Delight restaurant fairly quickly. But I know a lot of people who struggled to find work throughout the whole summer, " said ISA sophomore Eve Breitmeyer. Outside of Ann Arbor, students spent their summer all over the world. Art Design junior Joshua Costa backpacked around Europe. " It was amazing to travel the back roads and see sites in Europe that the typical tourist wouldn ' t come across. " Mel Bargen, a senior biological anthropology major, did field work in Africa. " I basically followed monkeys around and took notes. The experience was unforgettable. " Many students went home for the summer and took part in typical summer activities. " I life-guarded at the local pool and hung out with friends this summer. It wasn ' t all too exciting, just your basic summer at home, " said Kristen Grimshaw, LSA freshman. As the summer came to a close, students in Ann Arbor and all over the northeast region of the United States experienced a major blackout. The blackout took place at 4:09 p.m. on Thursday, August 14 and lasted for over 24 hours in some areas. LSA junior Laura Roberts remembered the experience vividly. " My friends and I decided that with no electricity, we had nothing to do but have some fun. We had a huge barbecue and topped the night off with a little bit of partying. A lot of people I know did just that, found friends to hang out with and enjoyed the time socializing. It was a nice break from the normal. " Summer 25 whether you ' re a punk a hippie a goth or a prep it ' s certain that you ' re always in style A rack of clothes boasts the high-end fashion available at Poshh. on Liberty Street.

Prow photo 26 Michigan Life Two students show off their sporty styles walking through the Diag on the way to class. Wearing jerseys and baseball caps not only showed support for a favorite team, but also made a fashion statement. . Proux photo by Nicole Mammo At any given time, there was a vast amount of colors, shapes, sizes, textures and labels traversing campus. As a reflection of its diversity, it only made sense that the student body made so many different fashion statements. Although no set theme existed amongst the students, it was inevitable that some fashion trends were more popular than others. Walking around the University, one was sure to see brands such as the North Face, Abercrombie and Fitch, and American Eagle emblazoned on people ' s attire. Some students joked about the plethora of people who owned one brand in particular. " You know you go to Michigan when you have a North Face rain jacket, fleece, winter coat, and backpack, " said Claire Haranda, an art and design freshman. Other students found another popular item on campus impractical. " Nalgene bottles. You know everyone sloshes all over themselves, yet they insist on buying them, " remarked pre-business freshman Katie Benedetto. various articles of clothing. This was a way for Greeks to show the unity in their individual organizations. Meanwhile, for some, comfort was the only option. Their wardrobes were not quite so organized and they frequently wore pajamas or the equivalent to classes. Many students refused to jump on any fashion bandwagons whatsoever. This was especially true of art students and those in the Residential College. According to R.C. junior Megan Shuchman, " R.C. fashion seems to be lots of vintage wear, punk, ' hippie, ' and mostly, big jewelry. Some people tend to think that the people in the R.C. try to dress alternatively, but I think that stems from feeling more comfortable to dress like an individual. " The assortment of fashion choices was important as it reflected all of the different types of people at the University. Through their daily outfits, students demonstrated their presence and differences. Junior Sociology major Alex Cummins makes a quick phone call before class. Cell phones were a fashion accessory seen on the ear of virtually every student on campus. L.

Michigan Theatre was a venue on campus that featured all types of performances from movie showings and concerts to student productions and operas. . Neff photo Diverse sounds echoed throughout the campus over the course of the year almost every day one could hear aesthetically pleasing sounds venturing out from the Diag or inside coffee shops. Even the most selective music connoisseurs approved of the musical acts that showcased their talents in Ann Arbor. Jeff Sutton, a biopsychology senior and a guitarist of the band " StartUp, " noted, " Ann Arbor is a hub for live music on any given night, one can venture out and hear some band playing some genre of music somewhere in the city " . Despite the closure of Hill Auditorium during fall semester for renovations, the University hosted a multitude of renowned musical acts that affirmed its status as an artistically inclined school. The University Musical Society, the main provider of events, held an impressive spot as one of the top five university music presenters in the country. Some of the notable performers were the Children of Uganda and violinist Vadin Repin. The cheapest and hottest tickets were sold for University productions put on by the School of Music where one could often see a classmate or an acquaintance performing in a University production. Chinwe Okeagu, an LSA freshman, enjoyed seeing an opera for the first time; " I liked the opera even though it was in a foreign language. There is something going on every week. " Even cash-strapped students could experience the opulence of Ann Arbor ' s music scene; numerous coffee shops, book stores, and an occasional fraternity offered live performances. Sutton illustrated an assortment of locations where one could hear live music " Our venues to date included Touchdowns Bar, UM women ' s volleyball game pregame and halftime shows, the UClub, the Union ' s Battle of the Bands, Martha Cook ' s Tea Time, and various frat parties. We ' re slated to play the Blind Pig and Ricks in the near future. " In addition to the visiting musical acts and University productions, students frequented popular Ann Arbor venues such as Birds of Paradise and the Blind Pig that offered plenty of live music and other merriments. The only restriction was that students under 21 could not attend. Despite the restriction, the students under 21 had a multitude of other opportunities to have a taste of good music in Ann Arbor. 28 Michigan Life going to a party just to sec the band a night of culture at the opera or inoshing at the Pig jive to the diverse music scene GloriS, 3 local Ann Arbor band, plays a gig at the Blind Pig.

New buildings and businesses were no longer a surprising addition for students, as some establishments on State Street changed yearly. . Weiner photo 32 Michigan Life DO DO CD 0) 3 D " C CO the changing face of state street In the past couple years, students began noticing small changes and store turnover on the well-known State Street. However, many were surprised to return in the fall to see the retail part of State Street transform from a low traffic, pedestrian friendly, one lane road to a major two lane road. This major street, once characterized completely by its many small, unique, and eclectic shops and eateries, underwent a huge atmospheric change. " Mom-and- Pop " types were pushed aside to make room for large national chains like Starbucks, Cosi, Sprint, and Ben and Jerry ' s Ice Cream. Decker Drugs closed its doors for the last time, as did Famiglia, a newer small-scale shop that sold home-style Italian dishes. Rodney and Susan Craig, owners of Rod ' s Diner, retired and sold their establishment which was famous among students for its Colliders. Many Ann Arbor students made it clear to the national chain vendors that they were unhappy with the recent change-overs, as evidenced by the protesters who took to State Street and Liberty during the remodeling and move- in of Starbucks. The common theme in discussions about State Street and its recent changes was the rising rent costs. " Buildings are being bought out by large real estate companies and sold primarily to businesses that are corporate-owned, " said Kevin Phelps, manager of Stucci ' s. He believed that it was the yearly rise in rent that was making it difficult for some smaller businesses to survive. An employee of Spectrum Jewelers, previously Silver Fox, agreed. " Rent is your bottom line, " she said. " I have seen several businesses closing in the last two years or moving elsewhere because small business people can ' t afford to stay. However, I certainly would not want to discourage any small business from opening in this area because some of them are still quite successful and offer some services that these large chains do not. " Despite these changes, there were still many smaller vendors like Retro Threads, Ethnic Creations, and Shaman Drum that continued to place their stamp on State Street. Many University students believed that these individually owned shops brought much more to Ann Arbor than simply the products that they were selling. State Street Changes 33 the crossword puzzle sleep homework for your next class anything to get through classes that suck Instead of paying attention in his East Hall Lecture, this student reads the latest issue of Sports Illustrated. Reading magazines or doing the crossword puzzle was often preferred to " learning " in some lecture halls. L.

Opportunities for students to sleep were sometimes few and far between, and boring classes seemed to be the perfect time to rest. L. Proux photo by Nicole Mammo Groan.Yawn. Snore. Giggle. Whisper. Sigh. Grunt. These were just some of the daily sounds heard during certain classes at the University.They were the lessons that students just barely motivated themselves to roll out of bed for, because they were either extremely difficult or just incredibly boring. Driven by some powerful force, however, students had no choice but to attend these sessions that were filled with doom and despair: the classes that SUCKED. Two hours of straight lecture in classes such as Psychology 111 or certain Philosophy courses were too much to bear. Crossword puzzles became a daily ritual, and were an outlet for the absolute boredom that students experienced in lecture. No one readily admitted it, but certain classes were simply social periods where students learned the latest gossip and discussed the craziest parties from the previous weekend. Other classes were found to be somewhat pointless by students. An Engineering 100 course titled, " Saving Beach Environments " was not a favorite of many. " We ' re supposed to be engineers, not environmentalists, " commented sophomore mechanical engineering student William Frencher. At the other extreme, walking into a class such as Math 216 and seeing frustrated students near tears was also a common occurrence. Another infamously difficult course was Organic Chemistry, or Chemistry 211. " Though orgo does not require a great deal of memorization, it involves an entire new way of thinking which makes learning the material much more challenging than other science classes, " stated sophomore biopsychology major Courtney Meyer. Although the University was known for its challenging courses, many students were not prepared for how thought provoking and draining these courses would actually be. Regardless of these details, it was mainly agreed that these horrendous courses were necessary to fully shape the " U of M experience, " and without pain, there would indeed be, no gain.

Though considered costly by most students, Starbuck Coffee ' s two locations on State Street and on South University made it a convenient coffee house choice. L. Proux photo by Yrette Granata Although traditional places like the Undergraduate Library and Michigan Union were " common " study locales on campus, many students found solace in the diverse coffee shops scattered throughout Ann Arbor. In addition to the always-useful caffeine boost, the assorted atmospheres of local coffee houses also added to students ' mental stimulation. Places such as The Coffee Beanery and Amer ' s inspired political awareness by selling Fair Trade coffee to customers, and other places like Crazy Wisdom Book Store and Tea Room were host to an array of events including poetry readings and musical performances. Coffee shops were oftentimes an extension of the classroom. " I like meeting with GSIs in coffee shops better than in an office because it ' s really laid back. When I can have a conversation with an instructor in an open environment, I usually get more out of it, " said Sociology senior Mitch Rosch. One of the more popular places for graduate student instructors and professors to hold office hours was Espresso Royale on State Street because of its proximity to central campus. Coffee shops also served as an extracurricular social scene. The choice between corporate chains and smaller, privately owned coffee houses was dependent upon the kind of ambiance and sustenance sought. " ! can ' t stand Starbucks. Their coffee tastes horrible and it ' s overpriced. Plus the seating arrangement is awkward and not very comfortable. I prefer any place over Starbucks, " commented political science and economics senior Nilay Dave, who instead frequented places like Rendezvous Cafe on South University because of the environment and vast menu. Some of the menu items at the cafe not available at other campus venues included the Nutella Crepe and newly instated hookah pipe and flavored tobacco menu. Students, friends and clubs congregated in coffee shops on and off campus under the pretense of latte drinking to engage in intellectual conversations, light-hearted repartee, or simply just to hang out. 36 Michigan Life prepare to get caffeinated kick back and relax grab a study partner and head to the coffee shops A study group discusses their notes at the Espresso Royale on State Street.

Tedjasukmana photo CD 01 =3 CD CD CO O university traditions As many things associated with Michigan, its traditions were great and long lasting. One of the more visible University traditions was the daily painting of ' the Rock. ' Located on the corner of Hill and Washtenaw, by what is informally known as Frat Row, the Rock was always covered in paint with symbols of Greek Houses, campus organizations, or birthday wishes. " I painted the Rock last year, and we ' ll make our pledges do it again this year. And yes, I felt ' brotherly ' while doing it. But most [fraternities] do it either for publicity or as an official thing each year. Mostly it ' s just to get the word out about them, " said Dan Rice, an LSA sophomore and member of Phi Delta Theta fraternity. Along with painting the Rock, many fraternities and sororities took part in the painting of the front gates of Delta Phi Epsilon sorority, which also sat on the corner ofWashtenaw and Hill. Another campus tradition was kissing under the old engineering arch in the southeast corner of the 40 Michigan Life Diag. The story has it that if you kissed your sweetheart under the arch, you would end up marrying that person one day. Sophomore engineering student Jason Barley disagreed. " I kissed my girlfriend under the arch, and it got my ass dumped, " he said. An even more risque campus tradition that took place before students graduated was attempting to have sex in the stacks of the Graduate Library and the 50 yard line of the Big House without getting caught. " I know at least 10 people who have had sex in the Grad Library stacks, " said junior general studies major Sarah Bowman. Whether or not those numbers we re true, some students continued to try their luck before they graduated. There were also other more formal traditions on campus. Every year at summer orientation, soon-to- be freshmen walked through the fountain next to the MLB. After they graduated, they walked back through the fountain in the other direction, symbolizing their arrival and departure from the University. Another walking spot subject to folklore on campus was the brass " M " in the center of the Diag. The myth was that if a student stepped on the " M " before taking his or her first blue book exam, the student would fail. The only way to undo the myth was to run naked from the Graduate Library to Rackham while the bell tower struck midnight. " I am a very superstitious person and ever since I heard the story about the " M " on the Diag I have not stepped on it. Even though I took my first blue book during my first semester freshman year, I still refuse to step on it until I graduate, " said sophomore LSA student Amber Graddick. LB.

The converted church was a popular place to see and be seen at the various parties its occupants hosted throughout the year. S. Thomas photo by Robert Fowler Social traditions remained strong as students continued to embrace both new and old University pastimes. Block parties and fraternity parties were a frequent diversion from schoolwork at the University. Particularly popular locations included Greenwood and Elm Street. Greenwood ' s shoe-speckled appearance made it a unique destination. As legend went, every time a male resident of Greenwood " got some, " he threw a pair of shoes over the telephone wires near his house. Elm Street, on the other side of campus, drew hundreds of parrygoers for their block party every Halloween. " The party gets pretty big. Sometimes you can ' t even move. It seems like every usable space is filled with people in the house and on the porch, " junior French major Rohini Singh said. This seemed to be the appeal of block parties and fraternities; there was room for hundreds of people to party. Other social alternatives included house parties and bars. House parties attracted more friends and fewer strangers than did block parties. Whether it was a fraternity or sorority annex, a sport-oriented house or just a group of friends, students threw house parties frequently. One house in particular had become a University tradition: church on Church Street. This building was originally built as a church, but was converted to student housing. " We weren ' t looking for a church to live in. We just sort of stumbled upon it. Now there ' s a lot of pressure to have good parties, " senior bio-psychology and mathematics major Christopher Frame said. In addition to house parties, students packed the bars every weekend . For students 21 and older, bars provided a place to hang out and meet new people. Some of the more popular bars included Scorekeepers, Touchdowns and Rick ' s, all of which were located near central campus. Bar golf, a recently adopted tradition created to make the bars more fun, had grown into a 60 team competition. " There ' s no prize, but bar golf provides a reason to go to the bar as well as bragging rights to who visited the bars most, " senior economics and German major David Schnepp said. Whether students relaxed at a bar, fraternity or house party, students participated in University social traditions all year. Evidence of a late night excursion, shoes grace the telephone wires on a quiet day on campus. Dangling tennis shoes could be found on almost any street on campus, as it was a tradition that students embraced wholeheartedly. S.

Neff photo 44 Michigan Life by Robert Fowler Turning 21 made every college student ' s dream a reality-they could enjoy their first legal alcoholic beverage of choice. However, over half of the University ' s student body had yet to experience this highly-anticipated privilege. Underage students were forced to find different places to party besides bars and over 21 clubs. Potential social alternatives included going to pool halls, attending concerts, and, of course, going to house and fraternity parties. When partaking in these activities, many underage students actively took the risk of consuming alcohol and perhaps even receiving a ticket for being a minor in possession of alcohol. Freshman economics major James Waldeck was extremely concerned about getting an MIP; " I have already received one this year. I think the cops are more concerned with giving kids tickets than keeping the peace and protecting the citizens. " However, the looming risk of a ticket did not bother all students: " I ' m not worried at all. I have been belligerently drunk in the streets and I still didn ' t get a ticket. I feel like the cops on campus are pretty relaxed about it, " said freshman psychology major Natalie Scott. Students ' illegal drinking could not begin without the crafty means of illegal alcohol acquisitions. The most frequented methods used to purchase alcohol while underage included classic " shoulder-tapping, " using a fake ID, and making friends with the store clerk. Many students had expensive fake IDs confiscated by suspicious store clerks and policemen. The notoriously hardest store at which to buy alcohol underage was the Village Corner. Signs posted everywhere reading " We card " and " Yes, your fakes will be confiscated " served as warnings to those trying to buy underage. Bouncers also possessed a keen eye for underage students who tried to gain entrance to bars and clubs illegally. Once students turned 21, these risks disappeared but were replaced by other disadvantages. " It ' s very easy to spend money at bars because once you start a tab you don ' t care what the cost is. It also seems like going out turns into a fight to find the cheapest place to go, " junior honors economics major CJ. Johnson said. Even students over 21 faced possible alcohol-related infractions with the law. Possessing alcohol in an open container in public resulted in a ticket if caught. Nevertheless, until students celebrated that magical 21 st birthday, they continued to find ways to both buy and consume alcohol even if it was against the law. late night MIPs rejected with a fake id getting left behind it sucks to be under twenty-one A girl gets breathalyzed by an Ann Arbor Department of Public Safety officer patrolling the streets on his bike.

Nefffhoto Under 21 45 o 0) CD DO O_ (Q 0) a gay ol ' time With new television reality shows such as Queer Eye For Tlie Straight Guy and Boy Meets Boy, homosexuality was becoming more visible and acceptable in general society. The University was no exception. Knowing somebody who was gay was not uncommon. The University ' s liberalism was a reason why being " out " on campus was more accepted than at other university campuses. Students were more open-minded, making it a friendlier environment for gay students. Ann Arbor also had its spots on campus for gays to express themselves. Two well-known nightclubs on campus were Aut Bar and Necto. " Aut Bar is primarily an older crowd, but it grows on you, " said junior LSA student Clement Chan. " It ' s very open and friendly. " Necto, located on Liberty Street, hosted gay night every Friday. " Most of the people that go to Necto are University students or people around our age. Generally most of the people are there to dance and have a good time. " Some students, however, felt that the gay scene on campus was deficient in comparison to larger cities such as New York and San Francisco. " What Ann Arbor lacks in a scene, it makes up with its community, " mentioned an anonymous student. The campus also had a Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Commission in the Union. Students having problems dealing with coming out or those with questions regarding their identity were welcome to talk to peers able to help. They also sponsored Gayz Craze, a welcome week activity on Palmer Field that brought the gay community on campus together to socialize and have a good time. Although the support of the LGBT Commission was available, some students were not aware of this resource. course titled, " How To Be Gay: Male Homosexuality and Initiation, " the University supported the course even though there was strong opposition. A family values lobbyist, Gary Glenn, argued about what he felt the class ' s intentions were in an attempt to close the course. He disputed the idea that taxpayers were forced to pay for a class that had the sole purpose of " ...experimenting with the initiation of men into a self-destructive homosexual life- style " . Professor Halperin, the course instructor, responded by saying, " It does not teach students to be homosexual. Rather, it examines critically the odd notion that there are right and wrong ways to be gay. " The support from the University was one reason the gay community on campus was becoming increasingly visible. The continued support made this a campus where gays felt more comfortable.

" House cups, " one of the unspoken rules of the house party, gave party throwers first dibs at keg beer. 5. Thomas photo by Robert Fowler Students partied everywhere, and the definition of social etiquette changed from each bar, frat, or house party to another. A popular source of entertainment, drinking games abounded at the University social scene. " ! like beer pong and flip cup because they are the most social games, " junior electrical engineering major Adam Breslawski said. In order to control who plays when, Breslawski recommended having people call " dibs " or " next " to reserve a spot in the line-up. Between all the re-racks, " death cups " , " blowing " and " swatting, " beer pong rules could vary drastically from party to party. A general stipulation was that the house rules had the ulti mate say. By the time a few games of beer pong had been won or lost, though, parties sometimes grew too large or too loud for the games to continue. Forcing people to leave could be a daunting task. " I have no problem kicking people out, especially if it ' s someone I don ' t know, " sophomore pre-med major Steve Graves said. Sophomore pre-law major Megan Dunagan recommended moving people outside instead of making people leave the party. This, however, had the potential to attract the attention of the police. " To avoid noise violations, just make friends with your neighbors and don ' t live in the suburbs, " Dunagan said. The overly-inebriated, stumbling student represented yet another frequent party risk. " I don ' t like letting drunk people handle themselves. They might pass out somewhere or stumble into the street. You ' re just putting them more at risk by leaving them alone, " Graves said. Dunagan disagreed: " ! let drunk people do their own thing. If someone is wasted, they aren ' t going to listen to me anyway. It ' s not my job to baby-sit them. " For others, a person passed out with his or her shoes on meant free reign to draw all over the inebriate ' s body. Despite the possible variances in party etiquette, students continued to both host and attend hundreds of parties each year. Concentrating on his shot, Dave Dahn plays a game of beer pong. Rules of the game varied as people went from party to party, but the hosts ' rules ultimately took precedence. 5.

Tedjasukmana photo Lamenting after a breakup, engineering major Seth Miller lets out some hurt by playing his guitar. Perhaps the worst part for University students after a breakup was routinely seeing their ex on campus. Tedjasukmana photo 52 Michigan Life by Robert Fowler Almost all students experienced one thing in common while attending the University: dating. The dating scene here had been described as both diverse and relaxed. " Michigan has a good dating scene because there is such a wide variety of people who are diverse in looks and interests, " junior psychology major Baxter Allen said. The large student body practically guaranteed someone a potential match for a boyfriend or girlfriend. Before that could happen, though, people needed common ground on which to meet and mingle. The bar scene was a place that was always packed with single people. " The single crowd scene at bars is great. The people there are interested in meeting other people and always go with a friendly attitude, " sophomore English major Jon Anderson said. Other popular meeting grounds includ ed parties and class. " Meeting people in class is the best. You get to see them in their most active and intellectual form. You get to see how they think, " Allen said. Many students agreed that the worst places to meet people were early morning lectures, the library, and the Central Campus Recreation Building. Finding a common ground for single people was easy, but actually meeting and getting to know people was a different story. College students preferred more mature means of introduction than the cheesy one-liners once so popular in high school. Simply walking up to someone, introducing yourself and starting a casual conversation was one common method. " ! don ' t try to seduce people. I just be my normal, cute, fun self, " sophomore English major Anne Zaccardelli said. Yet another popular means of meeting someone was through a common friend. Aside from all these efforts to meet people, there were also advantages to being single. " You have a lot more free time, and you don ' t feel like someone is worrying about you all the time. You just have to take care of yourself, " Zaccardelli said. Whether at a bar, coffee shop or party, students were likely to either be in a relationship, actively seeking one, swearing off dating in a sign of frustration, or happy being single. in a lover ' s quarrel blissfully committed or on the prowl for a significant other trudging through the dating scene Juniors Leslie Weitekamp and Troy Showerman enjoy each other ' s company while hanging out after class.The couple met through a group of mutual friends during the fall semester. .

Whether through experience, word of mouth, or simple trial and error, almost every student of age on campus discovered their favorite bars and best days of the week to visit their chosen hot spots. Going out was no longer restricted to weekend house parties and " bring your own libations " gatherings. Instead, it extended to bar hopping on school nights and after-class aperitifs, mainly consisting of a beer or pint of Sangria at popular early evening bars like Dominick ' s or Ashley ' s. 00 CD CD CD =3 CD r+ 0) time for the bar " I like to go to Charleys because you can hang out on the patio with your friends and it ' s not a club, " said LSA junior Melissa Buckshaw, sharing her preferred nightly destination.

" I prefer the bars with no cover charge and the ones that accept credit cards, but then I always end up buying everyone drinks and spending too much money anyway. " Buszek also added a reminder that, " Scorekeeper ' s has cheap everything. " Some of the other more frequented campus bars included The Brown Jug, Mitch ' s, Rick ' s, and Touchdown ' s, all conveniently located a short walk from one another near central campus. Students seeking an older crowd and a more varied scene ventured away from campus to attend the more sophisticated bars in the downtown area. These included Connor O ' Neil ' s, Full Moon, Del Rio, Bab ' s, Ann Arbor Brewing Co., Good Night Gracie ' s, and Leopold Bros.

During the housing search, whether or not the home had a porch often played a key role in the final decision for most students. L. Proux photo by Robert Fowler Walking down the street, it was easy to observe what most houses around campus had in common: porches. Despite the short duration of tolerable, sunny weather, the porch became an integral part in most students ' lives. Even in the cold of winter, a student could be found sitting on his or her porch smoking a cigarette or chatting with a friend. Although sophomore philosophy major John David Carson ' s apartment had no porch, he believed that porches had one specific function: they provided a location to sit where there were no distractions except the other people with whom you were relaxing. Especially during the weekends, many students also casually conversed with random passers-by. Aside from relaxing and talking amongst friends, other students used their porches for more practical purposes. " We just use our porch for grilling. Our porch can also cool down our apartment really fast on hot days, " sophomore pre-business student Eddie Muransky said. Muransky also noted that his porch provided better cell phone service than his room and was an excellent means of gauging the day ' s weather. These useful porch activities often required equally useful and creative decorations. Old, worn-in couches, chairs and tables graced many porches. Many students used their house ' s normal outdoor lighting, while others hung rope lights on their porch for a more festive atmosphere. " If I had a porch, I ' d have a grill and a fake Christmas tree out there all the time, " Carson said. These creative decorations made porches appealing, which was why many students looked for houses with them. Senior political science major Jon Muenz remembered that, in making his decision, he only looked at houses with porches. Students often ended up renting a house with out one because that was all that remained available. Regardless, porches continued to be a common place where students could relax, socialize, and enjoy the fresh air. Partygoers engage in a rousing game of beer pong under a set of porch lights. Porches were the ideal spot to host drinking games at a party in warmer weather, as the atmosphere was ideal and the sticky mess was left outside. Y.

Thomas photo " The pope " carves pumpkins in the spirit of the holiday at Oxford housing. Halloween was not just an excuse to party; many students took part in other festive traditions such as pumpkin carving, hay riding, and visiting local haunted houses. L. Proux photo Two students compare elaborate costumes at a party on Halloween night. With Halloween falling on a Friday, area costume shops found themselves flooded for business during the week as students did their last minute shopping. A. Kaminsky photo by Nicole Mammo This year in France, Halloween was slowly losing its appeal. People were intent on ridding themselves and their country of a pastime that screamed of U.S. cultural dominance. But one French bakery owner put it best: " Halloween isn ' t French at all, " and that was the whole point. At the University this year, students clearly established the fact that although Halloween may not have been on the French agenda, they were not prepared to give it up any time soon. Halloween was not just a childhood pastime, it was an event that Americans embraced with excitement every year, no exceptions. Dressing up in costumes was a popular and obvious way to get into the spirit of the ghoulish season. Even ifit was forjust one night, Halloween gave people the opportunity to dress up in their fantasy costume, an activity that few could resist. Whether one participated in the costuming aspect of the festivities or not though, no one could deny that the diversity of the costumes was highly entertaining. The streets of Ann Arbor turned into a giant masquerade ball, and partygoers took part enthusiastically. Interesting costumes ranged anywhere from a guy dressed up as a pregnant nun, to Rocky Balboa, to a group of Care Bears. Although fraternities and other organizations threw Halloween parties, the most popular event was Nightmare on Elm Street, the block party on Elm Street. Here, students gathered in hordes to enjoy friendly company as well as a party atmosphere, but some were disappointed when they were given violations from local police. Although few people participated actively in the trick -or-treating for candy aspect of the holiday, the Halloween spirit was preserved in other ways aside from dressing up to drink at a party. Through visits to Wiard ' s Orchard, students had the chance to get fresh apples, cider and donuts. For many people, these items were an essential aspect of autumn festivities. Also, many haunted houses and hayrides were available in order to provide an extra good scare, provided that people were willing to make the drive. 60 Michigan Life outrageous costumes pumpkin carving trick-or-treating for beer dress up and celebrate halloiveen fun Linked arm in arm, junior John Morgan and three of his costumed friends stroll down South University toward the Elm Street Halloween party.

The city was often times hours behind in plowing the snow, leaving students to brave the elements. A. Kaminsky photo by Nicole Mamtno As the winter season stealthily crept up each year, it brought with it an array of mixed feelings from University students and staff alike. This year was no exception, as the season succeeded in shifting the moods of many from be ing primarily cheerful to a bit gloomy, or vice versa. " When the snow first conies it ' s beautiful, but after weeks and weeks of it I wish the sun would come back, " stated freshman Engineering student Francine Shammami. When the simple task of trying to get to class on time became a battle against the fiercely blowing winds, many felt inclined to just let nature defeat them. The first major snowfall of the year brought feelings of both sheer joy and bitter annoyance, because regardless of how beautiful that immaculate white snow was, students still had to attend classes. For those who were constantly whining about the weather, others retorted by telling them that they should just suck it up. " People need to stop complaining about how cold it is outside, if you wanted warmer weather you shouldn ' t have come to U of M, " said LSA junior Renee Cox. When the snow finally arrived, it was the fuel for many snowball tournaments and attacks on unsuspecting friends namely the infamous annual snowball fight between South Quad and West Quad. But, the beauty of this white dust eventually became quite gross, as students were forced to avoid the dirty snow, which looked more like frozen Coke than anything else. " When all the snow turns to slush, standing on the bus will be even worse then it is now. I know I ' ll be the one to fall down and pull everyone else down, because I ' m unbalanced like that, " joked Shammami. Another consequence of the cold was the free ice rinks that appeared all over campus. Students had no choice but to carefully skate and slide all over the icy roads, sidewalks and pedestrian bridges. It was inevitable that many would slip and fall, as this proved to be a very difficult task. But for some reason, the bitter chill was unseasonably late this year, as the ground was still snow-free at the end of November. On the other hand, the arrival of winter also brought anticipation for the holiday season, marked by the installment of tiny lights on the trees on East University. Also, campus-wide decorations on South University near Nickels Arcade and the enormous Season Greetings sign on State Street lifted spirits and encouraged a jollier mood than the weather had allowed.

Driving this award was the University ' s dedication to its students, pushing and challenging them through rigorous programs. Students prided themselves on being admitted into one of the top public schools across the nation. Establishing the University ' s outstanding reputation did not come without its fair share of struggles. While in Washington D.C. the Supreme Court scrutinized the admissions process in a trial that reached the nation; back on campus new-age courses generated heated opinions for their educational content. Underlying the intense debates was a community of students and administrators fighting diligently to save the diversity and open-mindedness that encompassed the spirit of the University. ... __ ' - University Seal - During the " Day of Silence " in April, senior biology major Eileen Sagini demonstrates her support for affirmative action by wearing a black gag over her mouth.

Tedjasukmana photo 66 Academics n June 23rd, the nation watched as the two lawsuits challenging the University ' s admission poli- cies came to a final decision by the United States Supreme Court. In Grutter v. Bellinger ct al., the case against the Law School, the Court held that diversity was a compelling interest in higher education, and that in an effort to achieve the educational benefits of a diverse student body, race was one of a number of factors that could be taken into account. The Law School ' s admissions process, which used an individualized, whole-file review, was found narrowly tailored to achieve the educational benefits of diversity. In the case against the College of Literature, Sci- ence, and the Arts, Gratz et al. v. Bellinger ct ai, the Court held that while race could be taken into account, the LSA ' s system allotting 20 points to students from underrepresented minority groups was not narrowly tailored and resembled a quota. Although the ruling was not an absolute victory for anyone, celebration could be heard from both sides. " As a supporter of affirmative action, I was happy about the decision, " said Nickole Fox, an LSA senior and a member of Students Supporting Affirmative Action. " Race is very real in America and around the world. People of different backgrounds have different experiences. Having this diversity on campus is beneficial to students of all races and backgrounds. We cannot truly achieve racial and ethnic diversity if we ignore race in the admissions process, " she added. While students from pro-affirmative action student groups celebrated the Court ' s ruling that race could be used as a factor and that diversity was an important educational benefit, their counterparts also had cause for celebration. Anti-affirmative action student groups cited the Court ' s decision as evidence that a part of the undergraduate admission ' s process was unconstitutional, as the point system was cited as unconstitutional. However, some also expressed concerns. " The University ' s point system was knocked down, " said Ruben Duran, an LSA senior and editor-in-chief of the Michigan Review. " However, the earlier policy could not be a secretive one. Now, the University will not be as open about its admissions process. There will be no minimum GPA, test scores or any way to actually judge an applicant. " While many students picked a clear for or against side when debating affirmative action, other students on campus were ambivalent about the decision. " I could never completely make up my mind about affirmative action, " said Sarah Packard, a Music School senior. " Affirmative action is important because of the conditions dif- ferent people are in. However, I feel that it has created more racism. Although there is diversity in numbers at the University, the campus is still very segregated, and that makes me sad.

Neff photo 68 Academics (Continued from page 67) Two months after the Supreme Court decisions in the lawsuits against the University ' s Law School and School of Literature, Science, and the Arts, the University announced its new undergraduate admissions process to comply with the rulings. Undergraduate students applying for winter, spring, summer, or fall semester of 2004 would be the first to be affected by the changes. Applications would include new questions designed to seek out more information about the student ' s background and personal achievement. The previously employed point system was replaced by a more personalized and individualized review process, involving separate reviews by a trained " reader " , a professional admissions counselor in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions (OUA), and a senior-level manager in OUA. In the case of disagreement or inconsistency in the reviews, an admissions review committee would make the final decision. The evaluation would be based on academic factors such as high school grades, standardized test scores, and the quality of his or her high school curriculum, as well as a variety of nonacademic factors, which ranged from personal interests and achievements, geography, and alumni connections, to race and ethnicity, family income and family educational background. Combined, these academic and nonacademic factors would identify students who would best contribute to the intellectual vibrancy and diversity of the student body. Student reactions to the new admissions process varied. " I don ' t think the changes address the problem, " said LSA junior Bobby Raham, a member of Young Americans for Freedom. " It ' s just a show; it ' s the same policy implemented in a slightly different way, " he added. Other students, however, demonstrated more approval for the new admissions process. " The Supreme Court decision was a huge victory for everyone who fought for it. I support the University ' s new policy; it ' s a step in the right direction. We ' ll continue to work to make sure that the new details maintain minority enrollment, " said LSA senior Kate Stenvig, a member of By Any Means Necessary. Two weeks after the Supreme Court rulings, University of California regent Ward Connerly visited the University, outlining a plan to place an anti-affirmative action referendum on the Michigan ballot. Seven years ago, Connerly had led a successful campaign for Proposition 209, a similar initiative that ended affirmative action in California. University students from both the pro- and anti-affirmative sides vowed to address Connerly ' s plan. " We are working hard with Connerly to put the initiative on the ballot to show that no matter what Mary Sue Coleman and the University elites say, the people of the state of Michigan oppose the policy, " said Raham. Stenvig, who was helping to organize a conference on strategies to defeat Connerly, disagreed. " We will continue to build the movement for integration by building the campaign to defeat Connerly ' s initiative. This year marks the 50 th anniversary of the Brown vs. Board of Education decision. It is especially appropriate to pose the question of why education is still so segregated and try to change that. We snatched victory from the hands of defeat and proved that if we organize we can win. The same thing needs to happen with the counter attacks that are now happening.

Granata photo 70 Academics he Crisp lady, that voice on the other end of the phone that took students registration requests in years past, seemed to be a distant memory. Registering for classes by phone disappeared with the creation of Wolverine Access, the University ' s online registration system, just four years ago. Class schedules were altered with a few simple clicks of a button. The registration system was generated for all students, including graduate students. Classes from every school were accessible from a course search. LSA students were able to look up class availability if they were interested in a business class, and music school students could find an engineering class if it was something they were considering. Many of the courses though were reserved for certain eligible students only. To bypass the prerequisites, students went to the professors to be issued an override. Some students thought that Wolverine Access could have even more functions than simply a registration tool. " There should be a mark where I can read about the class while I ' m looking it up on the site, " said LSA junior Lei Lei Sun. " It would be like combining the LSA course guide along with Wolverine Access. " Other students also felt that combining more of the student programs all into one site might make it more efficient. They said adding coursetools or e-mail to the registration site could eliminate the constant signing in and out of programs with one ' s UMich ID and password. " I think the main problem was that it was really slow, " commented Business School senior Sandra DelColle. " You couldn ' t get into it sometimes because there were so many people using it at once. " Although one might have wanted to simply drop a course off of his or her schedule, it could occasionally take minutes of staring at a computer before the transaction was complete. There were also days when the online system was down, fully halting the entire process and causing headaches for students. Despite some kinks in the system, most people appreciated the new system and the switch did not pose a problem. For new students, Wolverine Access was all they knew. " I thought that once you knew what you wanted to fit into your schedule, the system was pretty easy to figure out, " said first year LSA student Erica Wilczynski. " The peer advisors [at orientation] were a ton of help too. I know I ' d have been completely lost had it not been for mine. It took longer for some than others, but all in all, I think registration went pretty smoothly. " The registration process seemed to get easier with the installment ofWolverine Access. The time that was spent on the phone punching in numbers and waiting for speeches was simply a blur. For the sanity of the student population, the University continued to find multiple ways to make the procedure easier. Fi how convenient is wolverine access?

The R.C. kicked off the new academic year with a series of events throughout Welcome Week. Among them was a performance of Shakespeare ' s play Much Ado About Nothing, pre- sented by the R.C. ' s drama program in the Nichols Arboretum. This was followed with an informative R.C. Con- vocation for the Class of 2007 in the East Quad Auditorium, during which students were afforded the opportunity to learn about the resources available to them and meet with faculty and staff. Characterized by its innovative and interdisciplinary programs and course offerings, the R.C. was a four- year, degree-granting unit. It was also a sub-division within LSA, whose faculty, staff and facilities were dedicated solely to undergraduates in the program. While students in the R.C. may have taken a number of classes within LSA and often opted to complete LSA-offered concentrations, the R.C. offered many courses and five concentra- tions of its own, which were open only to its students. Concentrations included Drama, Creative Writing, Arts and Ideas in the Humanities, Social Science, and an Individualized Concentration. Academic minor programs, which included Crime and Justice, Global Transformations, as well as Science,Technology and Society, were available both to LSA and R.C. students. Aside from its more creative emphasis offers, the R.C. was embraced by many for its language programs, offering courses in French, German, Latin, Russian and Spanish, enabling students to achieve both language pro- ficiency and cultural immersion with the host of opportunities. These occasions to improve one ' s conversational abilities in a foreign language took the form of intensive classes, daily lunch tables and weekly coffee hours. The foreign language classes ' demanding schedule was complimented by the R.C. ' s unique living-learn- ing environment. For the first two years in the program, students had to live in East Quad, where these sessions and classes were held. Here, they could take advantage of both the benefits of being members of a small community and a large, research university. The R.C. was known for its multidisciplinary approach to humanities, natural sci- ence and social science courses; it also offered courses in fields not available elsewhere in LSA, such as Studio Arts or Drama and Music. students find a unique community within the r.c.

Follow- ing a 6.5% increase of tuition, in-state residency rose to $18,463 and out of state residency was $35,993. Since student financial situations varied, financial aid was found in a variety of forms. Grants, scholarships, loans, work-study employment, and summer jobs all helped to get rid of some of the pressure. During the past three summers, Chris Niblock, a fifth year chemical engineering and chemistry double major, was employed by the Kellogg Company. The factory, located in Battle Creek, MI, was close to his hometown and paid a substantial wage. " The opportunity helped me in the fact that I don ' t have to work during school, " he said. Splitting the cost of tuition with his family, Niblock ' s summer job allowed him to partake in a variety of activities around campus while student loans and scholarships contributed the rest. Other students like LSA freshman Sara Romito, who had the financial support of her family for room and board, did not have to spend their spare time funding their college education. " I feel very lucky that I have my parents ' help covering the cost of room and board. It helps alleviate another form of stress in my life, " said Romito. According to the Office of Financial Aid, over 26,000 (70%) University students received some form of aid. In addition, the University dispersed $203 million to 20,000 students in the graduate and undergraduate programs. Niblock added a bit of advice to other students, " Work as much as you can when given the opportunity and realize the necessity of saving. " A student hands his money over to the cashier at Michigan Book and Supply. Along with the cost of tuition, textbooks were another huge expense for University students this year. Y.

The University of Michigan was the first public university in the nation to award degrees in engineering, and although many things within the program changed over the years, the school remained a vital and prestigious part of the University. Several different events were scheduled for the anniversary celebration. An exhibition in the Media Union Gallery entitled " Celebrating 1 50 Years of Engineering Excellence " was on display from October 6-24. The display included artifacts, computer projections, oral histories from living legends, and a movie from the College ' s centennial. The opening reception took place October 3 rd in the Media Union Gallery. A Sesquicentennial Lecture Series was also a part of the celebrations, as well as Alumni Weekend held October 16-18 where recent and past graduates came together to celebrate their College ' s accomplishments. Alexander Winchell, a professor of physics and civil engineering, taught the first engineering course at the University while he was also producing a survey for a regional railroad for a mere five dollars a day. He inadvertently began a debate about mixing professorship at the University with outside business, a controversial subject that the Regents resolved, stating that professors were permitted to work outside of the University as long as it did not affect any services to it. This idea of " public service and private-sector support " grew with the school of engineering and became a very important tradition. Engineers consulted with and had an effect on the state ' s Highway Bridge Department, the Belle Isle and River Rouge Bridge designs, and various radio stations. Dean Ivan Crawford played an important part in World War II when he was consulted in creating courses of study for officers of the Navy. A vast number of alumni made great contributions to the world, such as Ed White, the first American to walk in space, Claude Shannon, often called the father of information theory, and Larry Page, who co-founded the internet search engine " Google. " Lauren Mardirosian, senior mechanical engineering student and display coordinator, and Lawrence M. Seiford, professor and chair of Industrial and Operations Engineering, chat at the Media Union display. The display, which ran from October 6 to October 24, helped to celebrate the past and support the future. J.

S. Thomas photo The International Center sign directs students to its entrance, located in West Quad. The Center was a valuable resource both for international students and University students planning on studying abroad. S. Thomas phviv laiming an overall positive experience while encountering minor obstacles, international students from over 110 countries made the University their 2nd home. A large proportion of international students were from China, Korea and India. These three countries claimed more than 40 percent of the entire 4,200 plus international student population at the University. In contrast, some countries sent far fewer students here: Ghana, Honduras, Zambia and Swaziland all sent less than five students each. Unlike American students who studied abroad, international students generally studied at the University for all four of their undergraduate years or both years of their graduate studies. Of the entire international student population, more than 70 percent were graduate students. One of the first challenges to studying here was the acquisition of a visa. " I came before September 1 1, so getting a visa wasn ' t that hard. Now the visa is very hard to get. Because of that, my countrymen here are declining in number, " said Willy Arifin, senior computer engineering major and international student from Singapore. Other paperwork involved in the study abroad process consisted of SAT tests, a passport, 1-20 forms and financial statements. Freshman engineering major and international student Kyu Choi from Korea encountered a different impediment in his initial search for an American school to attend - a lack of campus previews. " I didn ' t know anything about the school itself, " Choi said. " You just have to judge it by all the brochures and paperwork. There weren ' t any campus tours. " After arriving in America, some international students encountered a whole new set of obstacles. In addition to missing home, international students submerged themselves in an entirely different culture here at the University. " Mixing with Americans is the hardest part. We grew up differently and we find excitement in different ways. It ' s just hard to find an American that kicks with you. It ' s kind of weird. You come to the U.S. and all of your good friends turn out to be your countrymen, " Arifin said. Choi ' s biggest problem, was adjusting to the American food, " I never eat just bread. That is the hardest part. I am used to mostly rice. " Aside from the food, Choi ' s experience was primarily trouble-free and enjoyable. " The language barrier has been fine because I studied English for nine years in Korea, " Choi said. He believed his favorite part of his stay at the University to be the football games. Studying to be an engineer, Choi felt that his classes were fine, and that he came well-prepared. Furthermore, Choi had no problem with transporting all his belongings across the planet; he brought what he needed and simply had his mother ship the things he forgot. Aside from various logistical and cultural obstacles, the University still attracted thousands of international students this semester, as well as in those past.

A wide array of opinions circulated on campus about the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) course. Chin Swan, a sophomore math major, summed up the general sentiment, " ! am kind of curious, " he said. Elizabeth Joseph, a senior physics and economics major, thought the course made headlines just because it was unconventional. On the other hand, Anthony Breschike, a sophomore engineer commented, " It ' s ridiculous that you can actually get credit for that. " Professor David Halperin, the instructor of " How to be Gay " , sought to clear up general misunderstandings on this course, making the following comments in his opening lecture - " This course has absolutely nothing to do with the question of what causes either homosexuality or heterosexuality. For the purposes of this course, I have no opinion at all on that subject. For the purposes of this course, gay identity will be treated as a social identity. That is, it will be treated as equivalent to being middle-class, or Jewish, or Irish, or American. " Halperin taught a different course on Gay Studies in prior years, which focused on critical analysis of gay literature. This change was part of his attempt to make the prior course a lot more interesting. " Now I can stand it if my students are bored when I teach courses on Plato or on literary theory. But when I teach a course in lesbian or gay male studies, I expect my studen ts to be thrilled and moved and engaged every single second, " explained Halperin. " So to find even gay male students treating my course on contemporary gay male fiction like academic business as usual was extremely discouraging, and I decided to try and figure out a new and better way to package gay male studies and queer theory for undergraduates at the University of Michigan. This course on ' how to be gay ' is the result of my thinking. " The Director for Campus Affairs at the University of Michigan Engineering Council, Khoi Nguyen said, " It shouldn ' t really matter. I don ' t see how it affects anybody... if you want to take the class, go ahead and take it. " I guess that ' s the line we should all tow allowing freedom to elect as well as design courses. There were other courses offered that centered their curriculum around gay studies. Womens Studies 245, Introduction to LGBT Studies, offered an in-depth look at different sexualities from as early back as the 9()()s to the present. Professor Patricia Simons used numerous slides, reading materials, and even movies in the course. Despite its explicit nature, Simons ' course could not match up to the controversy caused by Halperin ' s " How to be Gay " couse. Inside the Common Language Bookstore, shelves are stacked with piles of new books on sexuality. Coming out, bisexuality, gay stud- ies, and lesbian fiction were some of the categories of literature the bookstore held. Tedjasukmana photo The Common Launguage Bookstore is located on Fourth Avenue. Many LGBT and women ' s studies courses sent students to pur- chase textbooks and other reading materials there.

Ma 82 Academics xposure to different cultures was an ideal way for students to enhance their educational experience at the University. Studying abroad gave students the opportunity to come into contact with a different society and its customs, while receiving credits that went towards completion of their respective degrees. It also gave the opportunity for some to put the languages they had been studying at the University to use. There were three options for studying abroad: admission to programs sponsored by the University, admission to programs sponsored by another American university or college, or direct enrollment at a foreign educational institution. -Many resources such as catalogs, brochures, program evaluations by students and scholarship information were offered in LSAs Office of International Programs. With these, students were able to decide which program was right for them. Although these programs were often quite expensive, there were many outlets for financial aid. The concept of study abroad allowed people to acquire essential skills that could be used later for their careers and to enhance further training in graduate or professional schools. For some people, the University itself fulfilled the college experience academically and even surpassed their expectations on a cultural level. But LSA junior Angela Arcori stated, " I felt that a study abroad experience would not only compliment my college education, it would provide me with an experience I will learn from that will surpass what the classroom can offer. " It was a learning experience for both the students that attended, and also for residents of other countries. " The arrow was always moving, they taught me something, and I would teach them something-it was absolutely beautiful, " said Arcori of her two month long visit to Spain. Coming into contact with other cultures was something that people would remember for a lifetime. While it is often common in American culture to value business and making money, the lifestyle in certain countries was different, and to some, very appealing. LSA junior Natasha Cervi said, " I adored the lifestyle of the Spanish people... I loved how you could just walk down the street and the majority of the people would know each other, it really felt like a family more than a community. " Cervi advised anyone considering studying abroad to " go for as long as possible, at least six months to one year, " in order to fully experience the new way of life and its people. As a result of studying abroad, new friendships were made, new foods were sampled, and people s lives were forever altered. Arcori ' s advice summed it up: " Don ' t think twice about it, if you think you can ' t handle it, you can, the worst thing that happens if you ' re not happy is, you come home!

Kaminsky photo 84 Academics university stands strong in college rankings The University of Michigan was always recognized as being one of the top Universities in the country. In the 2003 college rankings, the University held up in both the Princeton Review ' s college rankings and U.S. News and World Report ' s college rankings. Overall, U.S. News and World Report ranked the University as the 25th best school in the nation. Schools that ranked higher were almost all private colleges or universities, including Harvard, Yale, Princeton along with others such as Notre Dame, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), California Institute of Technology (Caltech), and Duke. The University remained in the top five public universities, with only the University of California Berkeley and the University ofVirginia ranked above, tied with the top spot. U.S. News and World Report also gave the University a .44 for campus diversity, on a scale from 0.0 to 1.0. Schools that ranked equal with Michigan were Cleveland State University, Johns Hopkins University, the University of Florida, the University of Illinois-Urbana Champlain and the University of Northern Texas. These rankings were seen as arbitrary by some students on campus. As first-year student Natalie Goldstein said, " There is no clear definition of diversity. You have to take in to consideration so many different things, and at every school it can mean something different. Are you talking about race, economic background, interests, or sexuality? " Princeton Review examined other factors at the University, such as who was teaching the classes. The University ranked 13th for teaching assistants teaching too many upper level classes. It was true that many discussion sections were taught by Graduate Student Instructors (GSIs). ' Td like to have the professors teach the discussions, " said fifth year computer engineering and computer science engineering student Nick Shang. " This way there would be more personal interaction with them because it is a smaller group than lecture. And they know more because they have more experience, " Shang added. One of University students ' main concerns was always tuition. This year Michigan ranked 14th for best academic bang for your buck by the Princeton Review. They based their rankings on a combination of The Princeton Review Academic Rating, Financial Aid Rating, and Tuition. As a top public school, the value of education was still better for in state students than out of state. Said sophomore political science major Scott McConnell, " I feel that although the cost of attending the University is a burden to most families, we definitely get what we pay for. Especially for in-state students, the cost is far less than at comparable private schools and the benefits of having the University of Michigan on your resume will far outweigh any costs you pay now. But in the case of out-of-state students, there are other schools that will have the same rewards for the same costs. For them, it ' s one of many good options, but for in-state students it ' s by far the best all around deal. " Of course, college rankings studied the social aspects of the universities as well. Michigan was sixth for having a major fraternity and sorority scene. The University was the tenth hard liquor school in the country. Perhaps most striking to current and potential students, the U was ranked the 12th biggest party school in the nation, again behind the University of Colorado at Boulder, the University of Wisconsin at Madison, Indiana University and the University of Illinois.

EM snre celebrates 100th with pride The University ' s School of Natural Resources Environment (SNRE) celebrated its 100th anniversary, specifically commemorating a century of continuous existence as an independent organization, with a host of activities that took place from October 17-19. The commemorative events ranged from discussion panels to workshops to guest lecturers. The School kicked off the series of events with the Huron River Watershed Council, which presented a public lecture by Steve Chester, Director of the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality. SNRE also hosted a second lecture by SNRE Professor Emeritus Ken Polakowski, entitled " This Place is a Zoo, " where he discussed the similarities between contemporary public places and zoos. SNRE Dean Rosina Bierbaum said, " These powerful expressions, coupled with tributes from businesses, community, and University leaders, underscored the fact that SNRE has been, and continues to be, at the forefront of interdisciplinary environmental education. " Bierbaum noted that while environmental problems and the solutions to these issues may change, " SNRE remains ever true to our mission-protection of the earth s resources and the achievement of a sustainable society. " The School also sponsored a Great Lakes Discussion featuring Claire Schelskepast, President of the American Society of Limnology and Oceanography, who spoke about " Cultural Eutrophication in the Great Lakes: A Changing Paradigm about causes and consequences of low-level phosphorus enrichment. " The Ecosystem Management Initiative presented a panel of experts on landscape-scale conservation, in which the panelists shed light on the challenges and difficulties of landscape-scale protection and restoration of certain eco-regions. SNRE was proud to host the Alumni Keynote Panel Discussion on " Environmental Issues in the 21st Century, " which featured Chris Kolb, Michigan State Representative; Leib Kaminsky, Regional Development Officer of the Student Conservation Association; Sarah Segal, Retired EPA Federal Facilities Coordinator; Andrea Kline, East Michigan Conservation Director for the Michigan Chapter of The Nature Conservancy; and Laura Rubin, Executive Director of the Huron River Watershed Council. " Our Centennial Celebration highlighted both our School ' s rich history and its bright future, " said Bierbaum. " Throughout the week, we heard from alumni, faculty and students who articulated how their SNRE education has shaped their lives in direct and tangible ways and also helped to change the world.

The application process for organizational studies was quite selective taking onfy approximately 1 00 students from a applicant list of 500. J. Weiner photo 88 Academics I 1 eclaring a major was an important part of every student ' s college career. A major denoted academic specialty; what a student focused on throughout college. " The greatest thing about declaring is being able to tell potential employers that you have a major, " senior psychology major James Hunnicutt said. This year, several changes in the declaration process were made in the communication studies and organizational studies programs. The communication studies program enacted significant changes beginning in the fall semester. Students who did not declare by fall 2003 had to complete communication studies (COMM) 101, 102, 111 and 21 1 with a grade of C- or higher in each course, as well as maintain a combined average of B- in all four courses (or at least 35.1 honors points). Last year, COMM 211 was required by the time a student graduated, but the change meant that it had to be completed prior to declaration. Other changes included the fact that either COMM 101 or 102 must be taken prior to COMM 211. However, for any COMM 300 level course, both 101 and 102 were required. The last major change restricted enrollment in all 100 level courses to first and second year students. Key Administrator Rochelle Bavol felt that all of these changes were important. " These changes in the prerequisites for the concentration force students to think about their concentration earlier. We made the changes so that students would take the courses in the appropriate order, " Bavol said. She also felt the changes in the prerequisites for 21 1 and the 300-level courses helped students move through their concentration courses more smoothly. The organizational studies program also made changes to its declaration process, though not as in-depth as the communications program.The winter 2001 semester was the first time that applications to declare organizational studies as a major were accepted. The changes required students to complete introduction to psychology, sociology and economics prior to even declaring organizational studies as their major. Prior to these changes, there were no official class sequences or pre-requisites necessary. In addition to the required classes, a transcript and personal statement had to be submitted. Beginning last winter, the opportunity to submit these materials was limited to one specific time per year, as opposed to the previously allowed two times per year. During the same semester, a change was made which allowed only second year students to declare. The final major change took place last winter and concerned the personal statement. The previous question was broad and general, whereas the new question was more specific and encouraged creativity. " We changed the essay because we used to get all the same answers from students, " Student Services Assistant and Prospective Student Advisor Bill Kerschbaum said. " The program is becoming more impressive and is beginning to make a name for itself. " Although these changes made the program more structured and rigorous, the program continued to see an increasing number of interested students.

Coffee shops were extremely popular places to study, especially in the winter months when one could pop in for a warm cup of coffee and get some studying done at the same time. L. Proux photo 90 Academics searching for that perfect place to study Complementing the various social and academic tendencies of the student population, the University campus provided an almost infinite amount of places to study. For the most social butterfly or even the most introverted person, a place existed to accommodate the study needs of all. One of the most well known study locations for undergraduate students was the undergraduate library, (UGLi). For the socially elite, the first and second floors of this library often provided an opportunity to catch up with friends, while perhaps also getting a little bit of work done. There was also hope for the more academically concerned, as the third and fourth floors provided a much quieter atmosphere. Connected to the UGLi was the Harlan Hatcher Graduate Library, which placed a little more emphasis on quiet study than the UGLi did. The Graduate Library was most well known for its " stacks " , where many students often went to isolate themselves from distractions. The Union Reading Room and the Law Quad Library were notorious for being so quiet that people were afraid to even turn the page of the book that they were reading, in case someone would be disturbed. At the same time, these rooms, especially the Union Reading Room were also the scene for several pranks. An anonymous junior told a story that would not be forgotten, about a dare that his friend took on in the Union Reading Room: " One day we were feeling silly, doing different dares and stuff, and he just decides that he ' s going to do a random one, just for some giggles. So, he tells us to go sit in the quiet room and just wait for him, so we sit in there for 10 minutes acting like we are studying. Then, this ignorant man walks in and just crunches up in a little ball in the middle of the room with his booty in the air and then he just starts farting extremely loud! We were all laughing so hard that we had to leave, and a bunch of people actually got up and just left when he did that. " Some study venues served food and drinks to curb those late night cravings. Popular options for a Java fix were Starbucks, the Coffee Beanery, or Rendezvous Cafe which stayed open late to accommodate students ' needs. Sophomore Biology major Megan Wickman said, " Studying at Amer ' s is iny favorite, because it has great food and a quiet atmosphere. " It was also quite common to see many students hitting the books in the Michigan Union Underground, since Entree Plus was accepted there, allowing students to eat while studying.

The program allowed students to study theatre, dance, and music simultaneously, unlike many other schools across the country. The program was very competitive, with a total enrollment of about 80 students and accepting 20 to 22 new students each year. Students in the department were able to integrate different areas of study in order to diversify their educations. Courses were focused on and devoted to: voice and performance, scene study, audition techniques, career opportunities, musical theatre history, choreography, musical theatre dance and cabaret performance. An important component of the program was the stress on academic counseling for the first four semesters of enrollment, which allowed students to evaluate their progress and provided guidance for future study. Many opportunities for performance in outlets such as revues, Broadway musicals, operettas, and other works were offered. However, public performances were limited for first-year students, as they devoted more of their time to developing techniques in voice, dancing and acting, along with their academic requirements. This year students had the opportunity to participate in the world premiere of a new musical entitled Luck by Brad Ross and Mark Waldrop, two New York writers who visited the University for the performances. The show opened on December 4 in the Trueblood Theatre in the Frieze Building and ran throughout the weekend. " Luck, based on a story by Nobel Prize-winning author Isaac Bashevis Singer, is the story of how good luck and bad luck play a part in everyone ' s life, " stated Brent Wagner, the director of the show. The spring production,Jesi Christ Superstar, was staged by faculty Linda Goodrich and opened on April 15 th in the Power Center. Graduates of the Musical Theatre program pursued varied paths. Many ventured to New York City or Los Angeles to pursue careers, but others opted for opportunities in graduate study, to work for non-profit agencies, or in television. The Senior Showcase was an excellent advantage to having a degree in Musical Theatre, where graduating seniors presented scenes for casting directors and agents in New York City. Graduates have appeared in Broadway or other touring productions of shows such as Miss Saigon, the Phantom of the Opera, Candide, and Rent; many also appeared in productions for non-profit theatres such as the Old Globe Theatre, the Guthrie Theatre, and Theatreworks USA. students make dance and song part of their core curriculum Musical Theatre 93 A biker rides past the Life Sciences Building on the new pedestrian bridge across Washtenaw.

Mcesstnl radunc A faculty member of the new Life Sciences Building gives a tour to a group of University Research Opportunity Program (UROP) members. Students were eager to learn what was inside, especially those who lived through the many years of construction. . Neff photo 94 Academics 900 million dollar project to improve life sciences was projected to be completed in the fall of 2005. The construction of the Life Sciences buildings that had dominated Palmer Field area was beginning to take shape and open new facilities. " The construction distorts the image of the University. I can ' t wait until it ' s over so I can actually use the facilities and make the University look more traditional, " said freshman biology major Michelle Zhao. Although similar feelings were shared by other students, they would be comforted to know that the project ' s completion was just around the corner. The first of the buildings scheduled to open was the Life Sciences Institute. The largest of the three sites, the Life Sciences Institute was a six story, 230,000 square foot laboratory.This SI 10,000 project held offices and labs for faculty research projects. The building was designed to encourage departments to collaborate and share work space, housing the chemistry, genetics, and cell biology research departments. Karl Bates, Director of Communications, explained, " You need physics, chemistry, biology, engineering, mathematics to find how the living cell works. That ' s where disease occurs. That ' s a very difficult, dynamic complex environment and no one scientific discipline has been able to figure it out. So what [the University] decided to do was, ' let ' s put all these different people together in this new space. ' That ' s what this building supposed to do. " Expected to open in early 2004 was the Commons, located next door to the Life Sciences Institute. Also six stories, this building was to become a space for offices, lecture auditoriums, and a food court. The construction cost was projected around $32 million. The first event that took place in the Commons was a national conference held by a group called Students Exploring the Life Sciences and Society, in early March. The final addition to the Palmer Drive site was the Undergraduate Science Building. This building was devoted to the science learning communities including the Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program, Women in Science and Engineering, and the Life Sciences, Values and Society Program. As an academic peer advisor for UROP, junior mechanical and aerospace engineering major Adam Brezezinski commented, " We don ' t have very much room [in the office] and there is a lot of stuff going on in the office. It would be really nice to spread out. We would have a lot more places to have private conversations, more computers, and just more resources in general. " At a cost of $62 million, this " L " -shaped building sat on top of a 1,100 space parking garage. Bates summed up the importance of the buildings when he stated, " It ' s right in the heart of all the other life sciences stuff and its kind of a neat location for it. So the three buildings taken together are a complete package of research and teaching, and collaborating to talk about research and teaching.

Students attracted political leaders, media, and general attention for their heated opinions and passionate responses to local, national and even international affairs. Protests, solicitations, rallies, and chalkings were among the many methods students, organizations, and outside parties used to spread their word. Whatever the nature of the voice, it came without question that for every opinion there was a counter- opinion. With the great number of students on campus, controversy was inevitable, but that fact was perhaps what made the University so strong. The student body was - not afraid to express themselves and in these moments of expression, the true depth within the University students could be uncovered. fo ' new- wa yti aa inftt fcve Wwtffuecu bfoengJfc. y - University President Mary Sue Coleman - ;; freedoi fcfsBeech the right to solicit on campus Clinton caused 9-11! proclaimed the chalkings on the Diag in the first few weeks of fall. Student, political, and religious groups made use of this medium of expression along with others including handing out flyers and delivering speeches on a daily basis to get important messages across. While some students became numb to the constant solicitations on campus, others believed that there were some extreme and harsh remarks that should have been left unsaid. When prompted about the writers of the Clinton attacks, Brandon Coffeebourden, an LSA freshman, responded, " They do have a right to their views, but to say that Clinton overtly caused 9-1 1 is inflammatory and simply horrendous. " There were some other engravings that caught people ' s ire, particularly the ones pertaining to University current events. Boo the Coors, a statement promoting the boycotting of Coors beer because of the company ' s support for an anti- aftirmative action lobbyist, covered most of campus at the beginning by dinkar jain of the year. These more specific and time-sensitive statements held contrast to the generalized, often religious, directives. It was almost an every day occurrence to hear somebody speaking of the greatness of the Christian religion from the top of a bench in the Diag. Eric Chung, a junior engineer, commented, " As long as they [solicitors] are not attacking us directly, it is fine. [But] I wouldn ' t do it if I were them. It just spoils the campus atmosphere.

Some students, f ho asked to remain unnamed, :ould go on about the different ubstances they had seen passed round at parties, in dorm rooms, or n dark alley corners. At the other xtreme, there were those distressed t the mere mention of drug use. " All I know is that drug ise is absolutely non-existent on ampus and that I have not once icen around anyone who was using rugs of any nature, " said Ryan trauss, freshman English major, senior business major Matt Baer also iclieved drugs were rare on campus, dding that he thought others ommonly assumed the opposite. 1 have not seen or used any illegal rugs during my four year tenure at the University and am always surprised by the presumptions that University of Michigan students are prevalent drug users, " said Baer. An anonymous student who perhaps thought his parents would buy a yearbook stated, " I would never do drugs... my mother wouldn ' t approve. " Others were more candid in their observations. " ! know that a lot of people on campus use drugs. Last year, there was a guy on my floor who stored his pot in a glass he stole from the cafeteria in front of his open door, " stated Katie O ' Connor, sophomore athletic training major. Senior nursing major Amanda Shoemaker, although she admittedly knew " not much " about drugs on campus, said she had heard about marijuana, acid, and ecstasy being used. " I think drug use is very prevalent among undergrads. If you categorize alcohol as a drug I think 90 percent of undergrads use drugs, " she said. Shoemaker also noted inconspicuous marijuana use in her dormitory. " I knew people that used to smoke marijuana in their dorm room. They would go to great lengths to hide the smell of the smoke. They would have like five fans going, all pointing out the window. They would roll towels up and stuff them under the doors. They would use a whole can of air freshener to cover up the smell. They spent so much of th eir time trying to hide the fact that they Lighter on the table, a student places marijuana into a water bong in preparation for taking a hit. While the actual percentage of drug use on campus was left to debate, there was no denying marijuana ' s presence on campus. K.

" Your life is yours to do with it what you want; so go ahead and screw it up if you want to, " she stated. Freshman movement science major Dayna Ryan said, " I know many people who do drugs on campus, especially marijuana. I think that a significant amount of people use drugs on campus, but I wouldn ' t consider it a problem. While drugs are bad for one ' s health, I think that most people practice ' responsible ' drug use, if that is possible. " Drug Use 101 life on the streets homelessness in ann arbor With its wealth of fancy downtown shops and restaurants, tall University buildings, and beautiful parks, the city of Ann Arbor was a true treasure to residents, students, and tourists. Ironically, there were long waiting lists for the city ' s homeless shelters and hundreds of people often had to sleep without a roof over their head. Expensive rent and a high standard of living, along with the draw of wealthy residents and University students, contributed to a significant presence of homelessness on and off campus. University students often had daily interactions with people asking for spare change. Although some of these people often had places they could call home, they were known to most students by the blanket term of " the homeless " . Many students spent their four years at the University with minimal interaction with homeless people, avoiding them on the streets or occasionally pulling out some change from their pockets to help out. Some did not understand the reasons behind homelessness. Quite a few felt that they should not encourage drug or alcohol addiction; still others just found it difficult to face the reality of 102 Voices homelessness. However, there were also considerable efforts on campus to educate on the issue and organize long term solutions to ending this harsh reality for so many individuals. These efforts came from students as well as several student organizations. Program in the Environment junior Casey Ressl recognized the importance of not ignoring homeless people. " I interact with homeless people on a daily basis, and I will always say hi, because that is important. Once in a while, I ' ll give the man living in back of our apartment building a hot plate of food after cooking, " she said. Other students chose to volunteer at homeless shelters, providing a much-needed helping hand to local shelters and organizations that served the homeless population in the city while educating themselves about the issue at the same time. Many students also got involved with student groups working to create understanding and take action. Changing Ann by han-ching lin Arbor Around (Delta A " ) was a group that focused on helping the homeless specifically in Ann Arbor. " Delta A " was started by a group of friends about five years ago who wanted to turn things around for the homeless. They noticed that there are a lot of homeless people who hang out around campus. Other than giving them a bit of spare change as they walked by, they wanted to do something that would help these people get back on their feet, " said Danielle Davidson, the co- president of the organization. Delta A ' s activities included volunteering at local homeless shelters, spending time with homeless kids, helping out at soup kitchens, and running food, book, toy, and clothing drives. Other groups that dealt with the issue on an yearlong basis included Habitat for Humanity, Students in Action for Ann Arbor in Need, and Students for Public Interest Research Group in Michigan. Most students and student groups worked closely with the Shelter Association of Washtenaw County, the primary shelter system in the city, which provided shelter, supportive services, health services, and free meals. " Out of our 120 regular volunteers, 60 are U of M students and seven out of 10 gro are U of M related, includi Project Serve and Gandhi Day, " sai| Jennifer M. Crippin, the volunteer coordinator for SAWC. " Everyon has stereotypes about homelessnes whether they are attributed t laziness, race, or substance abus or being drunk and disorderly. Tha really isn ' t true. Many have job many have mental illnesses; marr don ' t have mental illnesses eithe The important thing is to educat yourself by getting involved in th cause. By volunteering or learnin how to be a crisis counselor, yo find out what the real story behind each person, " she addec Although a vast number of studeni chose not to interact with homeless people, Crippin ' s words providei assurance that there was still a stron group of students working hard t( educate themselves and others an fight against homelessness to brin about changes that would guarantee that one day, everyone could have home. in, the voluu Danny Jones, homeless for six years after his house burned down, sits outside Starbucks Coffee on State and Liberty.

Students enjoyed working with Grant because he was closer in age and could make lab more fun. S. Thomas photo issues graduate student politics by kara deboer The Graduate Employees ' Organization (GEO) at the University was the second-oldest in the nation, representing about 1,600 Graduate Student Instructors (GSIs) and Graduate Student Staff Assistants (GSSAs). According to its website, the organization was " an activist, democratic and volunteer-run organization where graduate employees come together to improve the wages and working conditions for themselves and for those to follow. " Tuition waivers and health benefits were just a few conditions the GEO had already won for its members. In the winter semester of 2003, the GEO held demonstrations to push issues with which they had grievances. On March 11, 2002, the GEO had a " walk-out, " which offered students the opportunity to skip class to show support for GSI and GSSA issues. The strike drew about 800 union members and undergraduate students to picket lines, and even caused students to strike on the Michigan State University campus where a GEO contract was soon to be signed. Later that month, a group of about 200 GEO members picketed on campus again. The GEO held this strike in protest of the University ' s use of a private pharmaceutical drug company and residence hall librarians ' stunted pay in comparison with all other graduate students ' pay. GEO President Dave Dobbie addressed the Regents in June 2003 on a highly contested issue for graduate student employees: the raising cost of healthcare benefits. " Recently, the University has announced a departure from its long tradition of providing full healthcare benefits to employees, " he said, adding that " the rising costs and new structures of health provision have not changed the fundamental responsibility of the University to provide for the health... of its employees. " In addition to pushing this issue, the GEO welcomed the Lecturer ' s Employee Organization (LEO), which included non-tenure-track faculty, to the bargaining table. Affiliated with the GEO, the LEO could now negotiate security, salary, and other employment arrangements. Students were used to GSIs teaching discussion sections for large lectures and other small classes. While some appreciated the youth and vivacity graduate students were able to add to their classes, some students had trouble understanding international student GSIs. Senior nursing major Janel Hasse recalls the first day of a sociology class with a foreign GSI: " He walked into the first day of class and said, ' I ' ll teach you Sociology, and you ' ll teach me English. ' " She continued, " I don ' t remember agreeing to that trade-off. " Although some students had negative experiences with GSIs, they realized that the success of the many courses relied on GS Is to help professors. Graduate Student Politics 105 direc ft from the net legal issues of downloading music The scandal surrounding Internet piracy gained momentum during the 2003-2004 academic year, and not without significant activity on the University campus. After the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) failed to curtail the popularity of file-sharing programs on the Internet, it switched tactics and began directly suing downloaders, including students nationwide. The suits were meant to effect the entire public, explaining to them the illegality and criminality of illegal downloading. Napster, the original peer-to-peer network for users to trade music, was forced to close down in 2001 following a legal battle with recording companies. After the suit, many students on campus encountered problems with other databases like Kazaa during downloads they assumed were preventative measures on behalf of the music industry. " A piercing static noise, almost like fingernails on a chalkboard, cuts off the ends of songs a lot. I wouldn ' t be surprised if that is no accident it certainly discourages me from downloading, because half the time I can ' t even listen to the songs, " said Jessica Goske, senior sports marketing major. In 2002, Andrew Palms, Director of Program Development for the University ' s IT Communications, said in a letter to students that statistics showed that " at least 24% of the by kara deboer University of Michigan ' s Internet use is generated by mp3s. " The University encouraged students to curb online music exchanges. Incorporated in the " Conditions of Use " for students on the University network was an item stating that users could not upload files illegally on the internet. Such activities were monitored by the University Residential Computing staff and, if found in violation, resulted in punishing or legal actions. When the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), failed to improve the situation for recording artists frustrated with copyright issues, they took early action on protecting digital programming. In October, the FCC released plans to enforce safeguards on digital broadcasts of television shows and movies. Digital broadcasts were easier than those of satellites or cable networks to distribute on the Internet, and therefore raised much apprehension for Hollywood and other television and movie producers; if they were not prevented, consumers could freely access and share movie and, television files in the same way they had music. At the end of October Napster 2.0 debuted. The newly reconstructed program charged service fees comparative to othei paid downloading programs in addition to one dollar charges fo single songs and ten dollar charges for entire albums. 106 Voices An eclectic pile of burned CDs litters the desk of a University student.

Many University students placed high priority on staying in shape for the school year. Freshmen fighting the infamous " freshman 15 " questioned the quality of dorm food. While the dining halls strove to find food options for everyone and even displayed the nutritional value of menu items, many students felt that their efforts were less than impressive and instead went to area restaurants for meals. Freshman Omar Salazar, LSA, commented, " Personally, I think the best one [dorm] to eat in is South Quad. But the food served in any dorm is generally always the same. I would go anywhere else besides the dorms to eat, but money is an issue so I stick to my meal plan. " In addition to creating a healthy dining regiment, students also worked on developing workout schedules. The CCRB, NCRB, and IM buildings all offered students a free outlet for obtaining a workout. Certain students, unsatisfied with the quality of the University workout facilities, chose to join other gyms close to campus including One on One, Bally ' s Total Fitness, and Curves. Leaat Dulberg, senior Business major, was one student who chose to pay for a gym over using the University ' s offerings; " Since the CCRB and the IM building tend to be very crowded, sometimes you end up waiting longer for a machine than you were planning on working out for. When One on One opened up, I decided it was worth it to pay the fee. I ' ve been able to take lots of fun classes and work out on my own schedule without having to wait in any lines! " And, for students wishing to participate in group activities, intramurals and club teams offered sports ranging from broomball to soccer to wallyball for a fee. New additions to campus eateries also challenged students to remain healthy with tempting menus and delivery services. Potbelly, a new sandwich shop at State and Liberty, opened in September and quickly became a popular location for a quick bite. Traditional favorites Jimmy Johns, Pizza House, and Pizza Bob ' s continued to offer quick sandwiches, delicious chipatis, late-night pizza delivery, and sweet shakes, making study munchies and post-party snacks available even until 4 a.m. While many students pursued a healthy lifestyle, media and societal pressures had unfortunate influences, as well, creating environments for eating disorders. S.P.E.A.K. (Student Prevention, Education, Advocacy, and Knowledge) was a campus group " dedicated to promoting eating disorder education, awareness and knowledge. " Danielle Bauer, spokesperson for S.P.E.A.K., estimated that nearly 18-20% of University students suffer from reported and diagnosed disordered eating, also implying that many women struggle " below the radar. " To provide support for students, the University ' s Counseling and Psychology Services, CAPS, offered eating-pattern assessments, individual and group counseling, as well as consultations to students at no charge. Bauer also commented that women involved in sororities or athletics tend to have higher occurrences of disordered eating due to competition among peers.

The employees at Borders made less than Ann Arbor living wage, and wanted Borders to guarantee higher pay.J. Neff photo d raw Wft, the line borders employees strike I n the face of two security guards, striking Borders employees held signs and chanted in front of the East Liberty Street Borders Books Music store beginning November 8th. The striking workers were joined in their crusade for better wages by local union supporters, sympathetic Ann Arbor residents, and many University students. Senior English major Yoni Goldstein said, " I, along with many of my peers, supported the Borders strike because it emphasized the broader context of labor rights and struggles that touch our community. In the end, the Borders Workers Union earned an unprecedented success against the largest international corporation in its field, and it did this as a community. We [students] are happy to be in that community. " While football coach Lloyd Carr crossed the picket lines on one of the inaugural days of the strike, many people avoided entering the Michigan-based bookstore. The striking workers saw their signs and voices as effective deterrents for customers, turning them away from the store and lowering Borders profits. In fact, during the strike, Borders corporate earnings dropped during the especially critical pre- holiday shopping season. Strikers requested that supporters avoid shopping at Borders, Waldenbooks, and, all affiliates of Borders, Inc. Employees were attempting to negotiate for better wages and by julia boyles benefit packages, and they formed a union in December 2002 to make their point even more apparent. To pressure union members to quit, Borders began implementing bag searches and requiring employees to show receipts for food purchases. Cutbacks in hours and positions also made Borders employees nervous about their job security. After a series of ten attempted negotiation meetings, the employees decided to take the next step and begin picketing in front of the store. The living wage in Ann Arbor was set at just over $10 without employee benefits, and at $9.45 with benefits. While the average Detroit-area Borders worker earns $8.58 per hour, new Borders employees were earning $6.50 as a starting cashier and $7.00 as a floor clerk. Employees admitted that they could not even afford to participate in the strike because of the low pa ' they were receiving. Yet, Border saw $125 million in profits in 2003 University students forme Borders Readers United in suppor of the striking workers, and raise campus awareness of Border employee strike by passing out flyer and picketing in front of the store.

" ! loved it so much. This year, I went every single day. I couldn ' t decide which I liked better: swing dancing to the live bands or watching the movies shown on the big, outdoor screen. " Evy Warshawski, the executive director of the Ann Arbor Summer Festival, described this year ' s impressive program as she said, " We had a total of 56 bands throughout local areas and beyond, playing over 24 nights. " The music featured a variety of genres, offering something for everybody. Following the musical performances, the program usually included a movie shown drive-in style against the huge, solid wall on the south side of the rooftop. Titles included classics like American Graffiti and Grease, newer flicks such as My Byj Fat Greek Wedding and Catch A c ifYon Can, and movies for the younger crowd, such as Spy Kids 2:Tlie Island of Lost Dreams and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Adding to the entertainment were food and beverage snack booths from local favorites including Cottage Inn, Zingerman ' s and Stucchi ' s, and even beer gardens adults over the age of 21 . Top of the Park celebrated its 20th birthday with a cake and an old-fashioned hootenanny, a folk music sing-along. " The board and staff of the festival felt that we had a great birthday year.

Held annually since 1999 with the intention of showcasing young talent, the festival attracted young screenwriters, directors, and actors, all with high hopes of breaking into the world of professional film and stage. Sponsored by the Film and Video Department, shows such as The Love List, Broad Strokes, and Dead and Kicking premiered in the Trueblood Theatre, with the assistance of artistic producer John Neville- Andrews and managing director Mary Lou Chlipala. Dead and Kicking, written by Tim Pollock, was performed during the inaugural year of the festival in the Arena Theater, and made a triumphant return for the 2003 season. After each performance was an audience question and answer period intended to grant insight on audience attitudes towards the directing, writing, and overall performance. Many times the discussion addressed the entire creative process, allowing audience members to became privy to why the festival members made certain decisions. One such audience member, engineering senior Sara Grady commented, " While I really enjoyed the festival and respect all of its participants, I was genuinely surprised at the lack of student involvement, even in the acting. " Although student written and directed shows were performed in the Arena Theatre in the basement of the Freize Building, the most attention was given to performances in the Trueblood. This surprised many students, who considered New Works to be more of a University event rather than a city one. Regardless, the festival was a success, drawing young talent to an audience that could fully appreciate it. -k J xU A n f J r f %fet l L Td k t 44th annual Ann Arbor Art Fair took place in July during four exceptionally hot and humid days. The fair consisted of four separate areas: the Ann Arbor Street Art Fair, the Ann Arbor Summer Art Fair, the State Street Area Art Fair, and the South University Area Art Fair. An estimated half of a million visitors attended the event to submerge themselves in a variety of arts, crafts, music, and food. People who attended the event in prior years may have noticed new changes. The original art fair, called the Ann Arbor Street Art Fair, was relocated this summer to North University,Thayer Street, and East Washington Street near Burton Memorial Tower. Another alteration to the Street Art Fair was a new program for emerging artists. Three students from the School of Art and Design were selected to exhibit their work in their own booth, which featured works in fibers, jewelry, and clay. Out of 1,800 applications, 197 artists were selected to take part in the prestigious Art Fair. The artists came from 35 different states, Ontario, and Great Britain to exhibit their work. The variety of art exhibited at the fair was extensive, and included photography, wood- working, clay, jewelry, painting, fibers, glass, and mixed media. Although the fair brought a great deal to the city of Ann Arbor, some students found Art Fair week less than appealing. " My landlord neglected to tell me that he rented out our front porch to some art fair vendors, which proved to be more of an inconvenience than a cultural experience, " said recent LSA graduate Heidi Leitner. Megan Johnson, an LSA senior, agreed that the fair was a hassle. " It was so crowded in Ann Arbor, 1 couldn ' t even give student tours of the campus. On the upside, I did find a cool hat I wish I could have afforded. " Although the event created a lot of traffic and some inconveniences, it was a great exhibition of creativity and entertainment on the whole.

The wee before school started was a chance for many sti dents to fit in some last minute partying. E. Hamburg photo rom August 28 to September 1, the University held Welcome Week, a program designed to help new students become more familiar with the campus and its opportunities. The theme, " The Journey Begins Here, " stressed the importance of students making connections with each other and the environment. Sophomore engineering student Rae Alston reflected on her experiences with Welcome Week, saying, " It ' s a good time to get acquainted with campus without struggling to fight your way through crowds of people, and you don ' t have to go to class. " Welcome Week started with New Student Convocation, where President Mary Sue Coleman and other notable campus members welcomed new students to the University, offering them words of wisdom for their years to come. Escapade and Artscapade, two of the most popular Welcome Week events, followed Convocation. Both the Union and the University ' s Museum of Art were packed with students, who participated in events such as scavenger hunts through the museum. Other popular events included Maize Craze, which lured students to Palmer Field offering free food and a pep rally, and Meijer Madness, which bussed students to Meijer for free from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. Meijer offered great prices throughout the store, helping students stock up on food, room items, and anything else they could possible need. Smaller events were also sponsored by a variety of the campus ' organizations, including a Mezuzah Fair held at the Chabad house, an Academic Peer Advisor guided tour of the campus, sponsored by LSA Academic Advising and Housing Residential Education, and a Drum Social, held in the Union by the Native American Student Association and American Indian Science and Engineering Society. With all of the events that the University had to offer, some students found Welcome Week a little overwhelming. " There were so many activities I didn ' t know which one to choose, " said first-year dance major,Thulinh MacTruong. X elcome Week was more than just a l J program of campus run activities, but also a time to explore uncharted new stores, catch up with old friends, and party. After a couple busy days of move-in for students, it was time to relax and have a good time. Freshmen, accompanied by orientation friends as well as new hall mates, could be seen outside of East Quad and Markley, consulting maps on how to get to the Greenwood block party or the nearest fraternity. Upperclassmen joined old friends at familiar campus bars with drink specials and shared stories about the summer apart. " Ann Arbor just wouldn ' t be the same without relaxing with my friends and having a conversation over some sangria at Dominick ' s, " exclaimed Senior business major Lauren Epstein. Athletic fans, including alumni, celebrated the start of the new season by tailgating for the Central Michigan game in the parking lots surrounding the stadium. Thousands of people swarmed into the city to support the maize and blue. Junior computer science major Andrew Pieknik commented, " after a laid-back summer, it ' s nice to see Ann Arbor come alive. " The week before classes began was not only a time to meet new friends and catch up with old ones, but a time to enjoy social activities stress-free. Without classes, students could attend house parties and frats in the middle of the week without worrying about homework or an 8 a.m. class the next morning. The barren streets of the summer were again seen swarming with the fresh faces of eager students enjoying ice cream along the street, eating at their favorite restaurants, and attending free screenings at the Michigan Theater. Whether a student ' s week before classes was spent relaxing in a new dorm room, on a porch with old friends, or in a drunken blur, there was certainly an off-campus activity for everyone. Regardless of the activity, Welcome Week proved to be one of the most anticipated and memorable parts of the school year. 116 Special Events The Dicks and Janes, a co-ed a capella group, sing at New Student Convocation.

Neff photo Welcome Week 117 ion J A nifying a diverse group of cultures and peoples, Generation Asian Pacific American hosted its annual cultural show on April 5 in the I Schreiber Auditorium at Pioneer High School. The theme, " Zero Degrees of Separation, " embodied GenAPA ' s long-term mission of social change and empowerment through education, awareness, and leadership. Dance performances ranged from ones incorporating several cultures and influences to others focusing on individual cultures such as Filipino and Hmong. Several numbers, including the opening performance " Mystique, " fused traditional dance with modern styles such as hip-hop. Other acts included a drumming performance by Sinaboro, the student-run, student-founded Korean traditional drumming group, and an episode of " Asian Friends, " an Asian take-ofFfrom the hit series, performed by the Asian American Association. The cultural show was a culmination of many community building activities sponsored by GenAPA that aimed to unite the pan- Asian community and foster understanding between cultures. Greg Lee, a junior cellular molecular biology and math major and the acts and auditions co-chair on the core for the show commented, " While emphasizing the many differences found among the Asian Pacific American community, GenAPA hopes to remove social barriers caused by them. " The many races, ethnicities, and cultures found participating in the show proved that the organization was pushing society in the right direction one step at a time. The sisters of Alpha Kappa Delta Phi perform a traditional Korean fan dance. They also performed a step show and a hip-hop dance as part of their act in the annual culture show held on April 5th. Tedjasukmana photo iveratv, 118 Special Events Melissa Casey, a senior business administration major and an assistant coordinator of the show, gives a welcoming address. The show ' s theme of " the same, yet different... " captured its display of the common thread shared by the diverse cultures of Latin America. Tedjasukmana photo The Ballet Folklorico, as performed by these dancers, represents in a traditional way the roots of the different regions and Indian tribes, such as the A ztecs, theTarascos.and the Seminomads. The art of dance was not only an expression of religious beliefs, but also one of their daily lives. Tedjasukmana photo ' ' l l he Same, Yet Different... the theme for the Latino Culture Show 2003 envisioned by the core was very fitting. The show, which was performed on March 29, united the Latino community and created a place to display pride in their culture just as it did at its creation in the winter term of 2000. At the same time, in only its third year running, the show had grown tremendously in participation and audience, and displayed an amazing array of cultures within Latin America. The Latino Culture Show involved a large group of participants and a mix of musical and dance performances, acts, and videos, filling up the main floor and balcony of the Michigan League ' s Mendelssohn Theater. The theme of " The Same, Yet Different " or " No es lo mismo, pero es igual " in Spanish guided the show ' s planning process. " We tried to have all performances go along with the theme. I think we did a good job of portraying different cultural aspects of Latin America, " said Ricardo Ramos, an LSA junior who coordinated the show with Business School senior Melissa Casey. " We started the show with indigenous roots and heritage with an Aztec dance. Following that, we had a Flamenco performance, demonstrating our Spanish heritage. Then we just tried to display as many countries ' cultures as we could. We had a traditional sing and dance from Puerto Rico, Salsa from the Caribbean, Merengue from the Dominican Republic, and Capoella, Brazilian Martial Arts mixed with dance. Of course, we weren ' t able to fit in everything. I would have liked to see an Argentine Tango group, for example. " Despite the three-month preparation period for the big day, many of the participants of the show found the experience to be amazing. " I really enjoyed the experience. We had a really good connection in my dance group; we were able to help decide what the dance would be like too. My favorite part was the actual performance. Although M Salsa was a hard act to follow, the audience was still really excited to see us, " said Kathleen Kirkland, an LSA sophomore and a participant in the Merengue act. For the grand finale, audience members were picked from the floor onto the stage to dance with the participants. It would be difficult for the Latino culture show to include cultural aspects from all the countries in Latin America, because of the diversity within Latino culture. The show, however, was able to successfully demonstrate the common thread shared by different cultures, while exhibiting their colorful differences at the same time. Culture Shows 119 At Kids ' Fair, Laurie, a student from Dicken Elementary, creates a delicious art piece out of candy at one of the many tables run by University organizations. Children had an opportunity to meet their pen pals at this event and make tons of different crafts throughout the day. . Neff photo Servinglfe nmunity s l he Detroit Project promoted community service and volunteer work by providing students with opportunities to get involved both on and off campus. Hundreds of University students participated in the organizations biggest event, Detroit Project (DP) Day, which took place primarily in the northwest community of Detroit, Brightmoor, on March 29 th , 2003. Early that Saturday morning, students loaded themselves onto school buses headed toward Detroit for a full day of work. The annual event also included help from students from Wayne State University, Eastern Michigan University and various other regional colleges. Over the course of the day, students assisted with wide range of volunteer work in the area. " Students ran science fairs, planted trees, cleaned vacant lots, tore down abandoned structures, and most importantly interacted with the people in the community, " said Janna Burrell, a senior in the School of Engineering and co-dire ctor of the DP major events. Perhaps one of the best parts of the experience was the wonderful lasting impression that the volunteers had on the citizens of Detroit after their efforts and involvement. DP Day was an important step to bringing Detroit back to its original vibrancy and beauty. A r , I I ordes of children and adults filled the Crisler Arena in late March in anticipation - v of Kids ' Fair 2003, the theme for which was " A Smile in Time " . The exuberant crowd consisted of over 1,000 elementary students, 1,000 University students, and a couple hundred adults. Kids ' Fair was the highlight for participants in K-grams, as it allowed most of the participating elementary school students to meet their University pen-pals. Although some University students were unable to attend, Kids-Fair allowed students who did not participate in K-grams to become Kids-Fair buddies, which alleviated the problem of missing pen-pals. Andrea Visintainer, a sophomore in the LSA and a participant in the BookMARK program, enjoyed the time spent at Kids Fair; " I found the Kids Fair to be a great opportunity for children to meet interact with the college students that they communicated with throughout the semester. I thought the cultural games were interesting and could tell the student I was with enjoyed them as well " . Hundreds of University student organizations set up booths to enhance the kids ' experiences at the fair. The booths offered both entertaining and educational activities ranging from decorating cookies to creating rocketships out of toilet roles. Special to this year ' s fair was a dance competition during lunch among the elementary school teachers. The music selection for the dance-off, ranging from 50 Cent to Britney Spears, elicited smiles amongst the crowd. According to LSA junior Christine Bergeon, the director of Kids Fair, " [we] invite the entire University community to come help us in putting smiles on a bunch of elementary school kids ' faces. " 120 Special Events Two students work together to plant a tree in the neighborhood of Brightmoor, outside of Detroit.

Throughout the 30 hours, dancers continuously added on to the dance, giving everyone a chance to let loose and keep their minds off of the time. J. Neff photo Making Ki Blue Style or two days in March, a multitude of students could be found at the Indoor Track and Field Building. Standing on their feet for 30 hours in a tired and ragged state, these students showed their support for the children that brought them there. Over 3,000 dancers, moralers, sponsors, and visitors were there to make this event one of the biggest and most successful philanthropy events on campus. Dance Marathon brought thousands of students togethe r for one purpose: to raise money for physical and occupational rehabilitation programs. Throughout the semester, students traveled around campus trying different ways to raise money. Events ranged from bottle drives, a charity ball, skating nights at Yost, and canning outside of athletic events, just to name a few. Dance Marathon culminated with one big event, which demonstrated the students ' enthusiasm and care for the children they sponsored. Throughout the hours, students participated in arts and crafts, games, and the line dance-short dances that were learned and combined together to form one huge performance. Students also studied for upcoming exams and had meals multiple times throughout the marathon. Students were able to participate in many aspects of Dance Marathon. Besides being a dancer, there were also opportunities to help with marketing, finance, morale, food donations, and more. The groups worked together to make the event a success, raising over $197,000. At the end of the event, the looks on the faces of the families that were sponsored stuck true to the organizations motto: Making Kids Smile, Maize and Blue Style. Community Outreach 121 pre bu cha Wanting to be made into a singer, sophomore siness major Leslie Patton interviews for a ce to be on MTV ' s " Made " . Students came to uditions hoping that they would be chosen to make their dream come true. Tedjasukmana photo Turning Reality _ ecruiters for the popular MTV television program " Made " interviewed applicants from the University and surrounding cities in late ' October during their visit to southeast Michigan. The casting call event was sponsored by Shei Magazine, a pop-culture publication associated with the University community. Hundreds of people between 15 and 21 years of age gathered at the Michigan Union to be scrutinized by judges, each hoping to be selected as an individual worthy of assistance in accomplishing a dream. The premise of the MTV program was to select individuals who had a distinct goal that they were willing to work hard to achieve, but they did not have the opportunity, initiative, or means to do so. To determine the capability, dedication and individuality of each potential cast memberjudges delved deep into their past as well as their motives. Specifically, applicants were asked why and how they thought MTV would be able to help them accomplish their goals any more that their own motivation would. In addition, extensive background information was obtained, and applicants were asked to describe their foresight into the opinions of their families and close friends after their training. While certain individuals present for interviews had planned their MTV debut for weeks and even months, some just stopped by the Union on a whim. Madison Moore, an LSA junior said, " I decided that I wanted to try out just about 30 minutes before the actual audition! I didn t know what to say, and I tried to cook something up real fast! " Surrounded primarily by aspiring dancers, singers and rappers, Moore discovered when he got to the audition that his main aspiration and dream in becoming a model was not what interviewers were looking for, so at the last minute Moore decided to just pick something random and try out anyway. Happy with his decision to follow through with the audition, Moore said, " The overall experience was fantastic. " During their brief interviews, applicants competed for the attention of the judges by revealing their fears and the obstacles that had prevented them from success in the past. Because judges compared the applicants to one another, the environment was fairly competitive. MTV judges ended up choosing one candidate from the University to explore a career in the music industry. Students eagerly awaited his appearance on the program to see if he had what it took to be " Made " . 122 Special Events x l A ho do you think was better in Predator, Jesse Ventura or Arnold Schwarzenegger? " ' asked a student during a question and answer session held with Michael Moore on the October 12th. With that, Moore pulled a Minnesota hat out receiving nothing but boos and hisses from the crowd of 1,200 or more that packed into the Power Center to listen to him speak. Known for his left-wing views and unconventional speeches, most recently seen nationwide during his Academy Award acceptance for the controversial movie Bowling for Columbine, students were not surprised at his liberal humor. Moore came to campus to promote his new book. Deemed as a book to end the Bush administration, " Dude Where ' s my Country " created nothing but laughter as Moore read excerpts from chapters on topics such as " how to deal with your conservative brother in law " . An alumnus of the University of Michigan-Dearborn, Moore opened his talk with the conservatives ' push for a constitutional amendment to define the word " marriage " as being solely for heterosexual relationships. His bash on the Republican Party was heard throughout his entire speech. Although he did not endorse a specific candidate for the 2004 election, he touched on several candidates such as Dennis Kucinich, a democrat, and was eager to hear Bush address Wesley Clark as " General " . Aside from jokes and foul language he persistently used with the Republican Party in the same sentence, he challenged the crowd to prevent the re-election of President George W. Bush. Moore also asked students to push for Democratic candidates that would properly represent the people. f he Simpsons hit campus on October 29 at the Michigan League Ballroom. Guest ' speaker and writer producer of the Fox TV show, Michael Reiss, came to campus to speak about the show and his experiences in production, including funny references to his Jewish culture found within the popular sitcom. Reiss also discussed the other shows he was involved in, such as Tlie Critic, and why they were not as successful. Sponsored by Hillel, this event was more than just a talk about The Simpsons. Reiss also talked about his life and how Jewish themes continuously influenced his work. He discussed who he considered to be one of the most well known Jewish characters on TV, Krusty the Clown, a Simpsons character who hosted his own children ' s variety show. He joked about how in one episode, " Like Father, Like Clown, " there is, " ...the most scholarly discussion you will ever see [about Judaism and humor] in. ..The Simpsons. " The speech was set in a casual environment where students could ask questions, and many were able to talk to Reiss after the speech. Freshman LSA student Rachel Brody said, " I couldn ' t ask for a more hilarious and enjoyable evening than with none other than Michael Reiss. " Michael Moore speaks at the Power Center to pro- mote his book Dude Where ' s My Country. Moore spoke to a sold out audience on a number of topics includ- ing the war of Iraq, presidential elections, and offered tips for student activists. A.

Neff photo 124 Special Events xl s classes started to wind down and exams approached, studying took up a majority of students ' time, and grumpiness crept in where it could. In attempt to brighten the mood on campus, there was Goodness Day. On April 1 0, many different student organizations gathered to pass out candy, pins, and other items designed to make people smile. Groups also set up games that students could participate in as they made their way to class through the Diag. For instance, the European Student Association combined learning and fun, awarding every participant of their game with free candy. Ema Sadikovic recalled, " Despite an abundance of fun activities and candy, the answers that I heard from people were the event ' s pinnacle. One girl pointed to a flag and exclaimed, ' I know this flag! This is the flag of Africa! ' It took her a few moments to realize that Africa is not a part of Europe, but I don ' t know if she had ever realized that Africa is not a country. " In addition to sponsored tables, Goodness Day included a moonbounce, free coupons, as well as free pizza and sodas. In an often dismal time of year, Goodness Day brought a little bit of cheer to those who were feeling the stress of schoolwork. It made the end of the year seem to approach much quicker, and gave students something to look forward to next spring. f 5 ynchronized shouts of nearly 300 protestors saying, " Separate but equal, we say no! C3 Affirmative action must not go! " echoed through the Diag during the 7th annual National Conference of the New Civil Rights Movement on November 7th. A reference to the much hated " Jim Crow " laws prevalent in the Southern United States in the 1950s and 60s, the chant took on meaning for a whole new generation of activists. The march, sponsored by The Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action Integration and Fight for Equality by Any Means Necessary (BAMN), was just one component of a weekend full of events that included rallies, conferences, and workshops. The march itself was the largest event of the weekend, attracting supporters and protesters alike from the Detroit area, Washtenaw County, and even from Berkley, CA and Philad elphia, PA. A small group of demonstrators from the Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) looked on after having their megaphone silenced by officers of University of Michigan Department of Public Safety because they did not have a permit. " They bring in all these students from Detroit public schools to protest and I think it ' s really unfortunate that they don ' t hear the other side of the story. They only hear about affirmative action, and I think they get a twisted version of it, " YAF co-chair Laura Davis said. BAMN organized the event not only to reaffirm its support for the United States Supreme Court ' s decision to uphold affirmative action at the University of Michigan in the case of Grutter v. Bellinger, but also to voice its opposition to Ward Connerly. BAMN contended that Connerly, a member of the University of California Board of Regents, had used his powers as a board member to " (roll) back the gains of the Civil Rights Movement of 1960s and (render) meaningless the 1954 U.S. Supreme Court decision in Brown v. Board of Education that separate can never be equal. " " Look at these students. Look at these people who have come from all over the country. The spirit of (Martin Luther) King, the spirit of Malcolm X is alive today on this Diag, " said Rev. Mark Lyons of Ann Arbor ' s Second Baptist Church.

Among others, the University of Michigan Museum of Art (UMMA), the School of Music, and the Center for Russian and East European Studies offered diverse events in which students could celebrate the culture of St. Petersburg. In addition to a semester of classes impacted by Russian culture, the UMMA debuted The Romanovs Collect: European Art from the Hermitage, which displayed pieces of fine and decorative art that displayed the royal family ' s passion for collecting all things European. Senior film and video major Bridget Briley commented, " Among all the diverse groups on campus, it ' s great that the University can finally bring Russians, a community that is usually less publicized than many other minorities, to the forefront. This is a great opportunity to learn about a culture that was once taboo to many Americans. " Along with many other dramas, ballets, and instrumental performances, the University Musical Society offered the U.S. premiere of Declan Donnellan ' s production of Boris Godunov, one of only two U.S. venues for the performance. The play depicted the struggle for power in Russia, and was performed by many star actors from some of Russia ' s finest theater ensembles. The St. Petersburg celebration was many in a long line of collaborations between the University and major artistic forces throughout the world, but it seemed that celebrating the Russian capital not only engulfed a specific aspect of campus, but was also an artistic celebration that was viewed by the world.

On January 8, 2004 Hill Auditorium reopened after an 18 month, $38.6 million renovation. Faculty and students alike were excited for the acoustically perfect auditorium to begin hosting world renowned artistic performances again. At one o ' clock in the afternoon, all were invited to the free " Hill Re-opening Celebration, " where Mary Sue Coleman and other guests held a ribbon-cutting ceremony. There were self-guided walking tours, and many musical performances. Not all could attend the ceremony, but that did not stop people from getting excited over the historic building re- opening. " It was great that Hill opened again this year. We were able to get some great artists and performers that could not come to the smaller Power Center. The time and money spent was well worth the benefits. So many enjoy playing, performing, and attending there. I thought it was wonderful that the school made an effort to support the arts and renovate Hill, " said sophomore voice performance major Ann Gallogly. David Daniels, Midori, Chanticleer, the UMS Choral Union, Jerry Blackstone, Kenneth Kiesler, and others kicked oft " the Hill re-opening weekend at eight o ' clock in the evening on Saturday January 17. The celebration continued throughout the weekend with Orchestre Revolutionnaire et Romantique The Monteverdi Choir on January 18 and the Jazz Divas Summit, featuring Dianne Reeves, Dee Dee Bridgewater, and Regina Carter on January 19. The celebration of Hill Auditorium lasted throughout the winter semester and well into the spring term. During the re-opening ceremonies, patrons saw many changes and improvements, including restored ceiling adornments, wall painting, organ piping, new seats, and the addition of a lower level lobby. Visitors also noted new elevators, air conditioning and other systems and restored brick, stone, and terra-cotta on the outside of the building among other renovations. The weekends performances were just a hint of what was to come. Friday, October 3, more than 1 ,000 people crowded into the ballroom of the Michigan Union to watch the first annual Master the Art 2003 break dance battle. Sponsored by Element 1 and the Michigan Union, the event drew 18 " crews, " each consisting of three members, from as far as Chicago and New York, to compete for a grand prize of $1,000 for the breakdancing competition. A style of dance called " popping " was featured in the first event of the night, which was then immediately followed by the breakdance segment. The latter performance, the three-on-three " Bboy Bgirl battle, " was the main event of the evening. In this competition, two crews squared off in the center of the ballroom floor while each dancer took his or her individual turn attempting to top the previous performance from the opposing crew. After each person had taken their turn on the floor, all six dancers took to the floor at the same time. A panel of three judges rated each crew based on style, creativity, and the technical nature of their moves. The Brickheadz crew from Chicago, Illinois, took home the top honors, walking away with the cash and bragging rights until the following year.

From the hugely publicized Kobe Bryant sex scandal to the local Marlin Jackson bottle incident, high profile athletes were constantly making headlines. In July, NBA star Kobe Bryant was charged with sexual assault of a 19 year-old woman who worked at the Colorado hotel where Bryant was staying prior to undergoing surgery. During a press conference, Bryant claimed he was innocent of sexual assault, and that the only thing he was guilty of was adultery. If convicted of the felony, he could serve a sentence ranging from significant probation to 20 years in prison. Shocked family members, friends, teammates, and fans had a hard time believing that Bryant, married and with a young child, could be involved in such a controversy. Only time would tell if Bryant ' s previously wholesome image would be tarnished, regardless of the outcome of his trial.

Local headlines featured various incidents involving athletes at the University, Michigan State University, and Ohio State University. In June, Michigan defensive back Marlin Jackson was accused of hitting someone over the head with a bottle at a bar, a charge Jackson denied. He was charged with misdemeanor assault and sentenced to one year on probation, along with various fines and an order to attend an anger management class. Ohio State University tailback Maurice Clarett was held from preseason practice until issues regarding eligibility were resolved. Clarett filed an investigation which claimed thousands of dollars of stereo equipment owned by him had been stolen from the car he was driving.

Arriving at least four hours prior to kick-off, the band members assembled in Revelli Hall to prepare themselves for their big day. " One of the coolest things is the parade over to the stadium, " said Matthew Strok, junior LSA general studies m ajor. " We have different cheers and movements and it ' s really impressive to watch. The best is for the bowl games. " However, there was much more to the Marching Band than playing at football games. The year-round commitment to the band included band camp, weekly practice, the Crisler Concert, and this year, a special performance invitation. The Michigan Marching Band returned to Ann Arbor 10 days prior to the start of classes for 12 hour band camp practices. During this time, the band had intense practices where they learned and perfected their formations and music. Once the academic term began, practices were held Monday through Friday from 4:45 to 6:15, in addition to game-day Saturday mornings. Unique to this season, the Marching Band was invited for an exhibition performance at the Pontiac Silverdome during the Michigan " Being in the band enhances the student experience and connects you to the University.You know you ' re a Wolverine. ' Competing Bands Association State Finals. The Marching Band also released their newest audio recording entitled Victor ' s Valiant on CD this fall. In accordance with Michigan tradition, the 300-plus members were held to the highest caliber. As the Michigan Marching Band Seal says " Non tarn pares, quam superiors, " meaning " Not as good as, Better than " , the band functioned in similar fashion. Members competed for the 235 available slots for pre-game performances. The reserves were established several years ago and serve to challenge their peers to play at their highest level. Each week, auditions were held for the performance, and that performance block would vary from week to week. Other forms of tradition stemmed from the infamous position of drum major. " The back bend has become tradition over the past few years, especially without the hat, " said Matthew Cavanaugh, drum major. " It has become a standard by the crowd, they won ' t go crazy unless you take the hat off. " It took Cavanaugh two years to learn the trick. In reflection on his involvement in the Michigan Marching Band, Strok said, " Being in the band enhances the student experience and connects you to the University. You know you ' re a Wolverine.

The season opener against the Central Michigan Chippewas on August 30 th was only the beginning of what would prove to be an exciting season. This game marked head coach Lloyd Carr ' s 100 th career game, and the team played aggressively as a testament to this fact. Records were broken as Chris Perry carried 232 yards that game, which was the most ever by a Wolverine rusher in a season opener. The game ended in a Wolverine victory, with a final score of 45-7. The following weekend, the team demolished Houston at the Big House. John Navarre earned the most completions for a Michigan quarterback in a career. A week later, ESPN ' s College Football Game Day crew was present to witness Michigan shut out one of the biggest rivals, Notre Dame, with a score of 38-0.

Neff photo Short of Victory By Melissa Plotkowski With the Big Ten Championship and a final record of 10- 2, the Wolverines earned a fourth place ranking by both the Bowl Championship Series (BCS) and the Associated Press (AP) polls. The ranking automatically placed the Wolverines in a BCS bowl game and it was later determined that the team ' s destination would be Pasadena, California for a chance at a Rose Bowl victory against the Trojans of Southern California. Sparking controversy, the Trojans were ranked first in the AP poll but third in the BCS rankings, and many thought they deserved to go to the Sugar Bowl for the National Championship game. This issue, coupled with the success and large following of the two teams, made the 90th Rose Bowl one of the most talked about and speculated games of the bowl series. This was also the first time in five years that the Big Ten and Pac 10 champions would meet in the Rose Bowl. Coach Lloyd Carr and the team flew to California on December 20, almost two weeks before the game was to take place. With enforced curfews and practice twice a day in the first week, the team prepared themselves both mentally and physically for the big game. The second week was a bit lighter, with practices only once a day, giving the players a bit more freedom. Bowl game festivities included a trip to Disneyland and a taping of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. For fans, players, and coaches alike, New Year ' s Day meant game time. In USC ' s eyes, the Rose Bowl was their National Championship game; for the Wolverine ' s, it was a chance to recapture the glory of 1998. At 2 p.m. Pacific time, 5 p.m. Eastern, the stage was set for the four quarter battle. The Trojans won the coin toss and elected to kick off to the Wolverines. The Wolverines came out strong with a 6:15 minute drive, only to have a 47-yard field goal attempt blocked by the Trojans. Not taking much time to capitalize, the Trojans scored a touchdown in just 37 seconds on a 25-yard throw from quarterback Matt Leinart to full back Keary Colbert. With the momentum and the score, USC took off and did not look back. Scoring again off a John Navarre interception, USC went into the half leading 14-0. The Wolverines kicked off to the Trojans to start the second half. Leinart and Colbert teamed up again with a 47 yard pass to bring the Trojan tally to 21-0. This time, though, the Wolverines answered the Trojan score with a 16 play, 76 yard drive. Navarre sent the ball to sophomore tight- end Tim Massaquoi, which cut the Trojan lead to 21-7. Not shaken by the Wolverine touchdown, the Trojans marched back on the field and had a 72-yard drive. In a unconventional play, Leinart pitched the ball to Mike Williams who then threw the ball back to Leinart for a touchdown score. The Wolverines tried to catch up but they were no match for the USC defense. The Trojans sacked quarterback John Navarre nine times and held him to just 27 completions out of 46 attempts for 271 yards. The Wolverines scored once more a touchdown run from Heisman finalist Chris Perry. The Trojans held Perry to just 85 yards in the game. The game ended in a 28-14 win for the USC Trojans.

How did they survive? At the University, being an athlete was no easy task. It meant demanding and sometimes painful practice sessions, frequent traveling, and non-stop games and tournaments. All of these duties were tiring and time-consuming, and often left little room for schoolwork, socializing with friends, or having time to themselves. However, many student athletes juggled these responsibilities remarkably well, managing to retain their sanity in the process. Being an athlete forced many students to have to organize their lives in an extreme manner and gave them no choice but to prioritize. When asked how he managed his time, gymnast and sophomore movement science student Justin Laury remarked that he had to, " make use of the free time we have; if I ' m about to play video games or watch TV, I reconsider it, because I think about all of the other stuff I have to do. " Schedules could not be taken lightly, because a slip-up often " My whole life is a big balance between school, track, and my social life. " meant a poor grade in a class. Sophomore art and architecture student Shavonne Maclin stated, " Track is like a full-time job for me. My whole life is a big balance between school, track, and my social life.

Bids were awarded to the top performers at the camp. During competition, the squad claimed the title for Best Fight Song Performance. The squad had to choreograph " The Victors " to a pre-selected song. In addition, they received the Most Collegiate Award at camp, a coveted award voted upon by all attending colleges of the camp that recognizes one team as an exemplary squad. Outside of camp, accomplishments included an eighth place finish by an all-girl stunt group in Nationals Competition in 2003. Within the cheerleading program, the members were split into two teams, ' maize ' and ' blue ' . The blue squad was the varsity team consisting of 18 members, 9 couples, and the maize squad had 23 members, consisting of 9 couples and a 5-member all girl stunt team. To be a member of the blue squad, a participant had to perform a standing back-tuck during tryouts. In addition, both groups were expected to improve their techniques and learn By Chelsea Anderson new stunts over the course of the season. Being a member of the Michigan cheerleading squad was a full-time commitment involving tough practices and lengthy schedules. " There is something to do for cheerleading everyday. It ' s a lot of work, " said 5th year senior Greg Shaver. The squad continued the cheer traditions from several seasons past; one included the Michigan Locomotive cheer. The cheerleaders were welcomed by the public and opponents wherever they traveled. " We receive a lot of respect from opponents for being Michigan Cheerleaders, especially for being affiliated with the University of Michigan, " said Shaver. Sophomore Lindsay Salliotte supported Shaver ' s comments by adding, " At cheer camp, other teams were impressed that we were Michigan Cheerleaders. " As expressed by multiple cheerleaders, one of the greatest experiences with being a member of the cheer squad was the thrill of being down on the field in the Big House and interacting with the fans. Salliotte said, " The best part of the team is the football games. There is no feeling that can describe the rush you feel when running through the tunnel to cheer in front of 11 0,000 people.

First in the line of events was an offer for free student season tickets to basketball games. The second was the lift of the post-season ban by the NCAA. Checking their inboxes one day, students received an e-mail from the Athletic Department. Men ' s basketball coach Tommy Amakar announced that all returning season ticket holders could renew their season passes at no charge. An anonymous donor had given the men ' s basketball program a large monetary contribution. Amakar decided to give back to the students and offered free bleacher seats for the student section, known as Maize Rage. " Our students are a critical part of our program. We cannot reach our goals without their support and spirit... Through this generous donation, we are thrilled to be able to do that, " Amakar said. The University was the first in the Big 10 Conference to offer student basketball tickets free of charge. By Melissa Plotkowski The basketball program was also awarded with an opportunity to participate in the 2004 post-season. The news pumped the Wolverine team into action, making each practice count that much more. Coach Tommy Amakar used a NCAA rule that allowed the Wolverines to begin practice earlier than most. The rule allowed teams that go abroad for exhibition games to have ten practices before they leave for the trip. During the University ' s fall break, Amakar and the team went on a three game exhibition trip to Canada. There, the Wolverines proved their dominance, winning all three games with by impressive margins. The men ' s basketball team opened up their season at home with an exhibition game against the Michigan Tech Huskies at Crisler Arena. Sophomore Daniel Horton led the Wolverines to a 73-61 victory, scoring 23 points and 8 rebounds in the game.

Both the eligibility for a postseason and an impressive 2003 season put pressure on the team to excel. Returning starters forward Chris Hunter, forwards Bernard Robinson Jr. and Lester Abram, and guard Daniel Horton looked to lead a tough defense and a powerful offense. " We ' re a hungry program and a hungry team. We ' re older. You go through some things, hopefully that vill allow us to be more productive throughout the year, " said Head Coach Tommy Amaker. Adding to the strength of the experienced players, newcomer freshman forward Courtney Sims hoped to make an impact. Unfortunately, it was announced in mid-December that Hunter would undergo arthroscopic knee surgery and would be out indefinitely. Nevertheless, the team kept their heads high, counting on their leaders to pull them through. The Wolverines began the season with a four game winning streak. Sophomore guard Daniel Horton commented, " It feels great.

The Wolverines performed with excellence as sophomore Lester Abram went 7-for-8 from the floor and 10-for-10 from the line to set a career-high 27 points. However, the two subsequent games resulted in losses to rivals Indiana and Michigan State. Against the Spartans, Horton tallied 20 points, hitting 5-for-15 from the field and 5-for-6 from the line. At the half, Michigan was down by nine, but despite their battle through the second twenty minutes, they were unsuccessful in closing the deficit. Amaker reacted to the defeat, stating, " We absolutely need to get tougher. You need that, especially on the road and in a tough environment. You need to be mentally tough and need to do all the little things. " Match-ups against other conference play powerhouses led to important tests for the squad.

Ed Martin, an ex-booster, pleaded guilty to giving gifts of more than $600,000 to the " Fab Five, " past members of the University ' s basketball team. As a result, last year the men ' s basketball team sat at home land watched the whole post-season on television despite their contention to be among the 64 teams named. " It was very difficult, especially knowing that we had a very good chance to make it. The question on our minds was, ' Would we have been able to make it if we were eligible? ' It was very hard. We watched the tournament saying next year we want to be there, " said forward J.C. Mathis. On May 8, the NCAA Committee on Infractions announced additional sanctions including :a 2003-04 postseason ban. " When we heard the news this summer it was deflating, knowing that we wouldn ' t jhave the chance again, " said Mathis. Michigan appealed the 2003-04 postseason ban for this reason, citing it is !as excessive. On September 25, the NCAA Division I Infractions Appeals Committee reversed the imposed ban on postseason competition citing Michigan ' s " unique level of cooperation " in the investigation process. " ' This is a tremendously positive day for the University of Michigan and " t was more of a shock than anything e se.We were really happy, of course, to be able to be in a position where we can make the post-season.

" We got the call late to go and meet at Crisler. It was storming and we were all wondering what was going on. We saw Coach walk in and he had a big smile on his face, so we knew it was not bad news. As soon as he said it we were really excited. It was more of a shock than anything else. We were really happy, of course, to be able to be in a position where we can make the post- season, " said forward Colin Dill. This chapter in the men ' s basketball program produced a stronger and more resilient team. Director of Athletics Bill Martin summed it up by saying, " We have learned some hard lessons from this experience, but we emerged from it with a stronger program and a renewed commitment to the highest standards of integrity. I ' m proud of Coach Amaker and our current players, who gave their best effort last year despite a ban on the postseason tournament that was self-imposed by the University. We ' re looking ahead now to a terrific season. " After the University ' s seff- imposed sanctions. Coach Tommy Amaker speaks at a press conference.

Seniors Stephanie Gandy and Jennifer Smith each scored over 20 points, and Niki Reams had a career best 5 steals in the game. It was the emotion of these wins, coupled with the love of the game, that kept the girls motivated for the long haul and gave the girls the ability to bounce back from tough losses to teams such as Penn State, Michigan State and Purdue. Junior forward Tabitha Pool commented, " [Having a successful team is] important because we come together as a team. We all want it and we ' ve all wanted it for a long time. " Despite this desire, the team had to settle for close to just a fifty-percent win average.

However, the sports offered ranged well beyond the more traditional football, basketball, and soccer. Walleyball, inter-tube water polo, and broomball were just a few of the strange, yet decidedly fun sports in which students participated. Walleyball was essentially a volleyball match played inside a racquetball court, inter-tube water polo was just that-water polo played using inter-tubes, and broomball was similar to ice hockey though without the use of ice skates. " I really love broomball. Part of the allure of the more off-beat sports is that they provide students the opportunity to branch out and try new things, " said junior industrial and operational engineering major Mitch Stampien. Stampien also felt that these sports were particularly fun because they did not require much athletic skill to be successful while playing them. O ther more mainstream sports offered by the University included ice hockey, swimming, ultimate frisbee, golf, wrestling, and track, though the most popular sports overall still remained flag football, basketball and soccer. " Many intramural participants are high school athletes who are not varsity but still want to continue the competition they had in high school. Intramural sports are also good exercise and a way to have fun with your friends outside of parties, " said junior " Part of the allure of the more off-beat sports is that they provide students the opportunity to branch out and try new things.

In the 2002-2003 season, the team had three athletes named NCAA All-Americans, an honor given to the top eight wrestlers in each weight class. These included senior captain AJ. Grant, sophomore Ryan Bertin, and senior Kyle Smith. In addition, Bertin was named 2003 NCAA Champion at the NCAA Wrestling Championships held in Kansas City in March. After being injured for most of the season, Bertin was only seeded six in the tournament, but came back strong to win the title in the 1 57 pound weight class. After such a successful season, head coach Joe McFarland had high expectations for the 2003-2004 team. " One of our goals is we want to have some more individual champions. 1 think we have a number of guys that could win a title this year, " McFarland promised.

" The kind of stuff we put ourselves through as far as conditioning, pain, exhaustion; if you aren ' t a goal setter it would be hard to go through all that because you have to have some goal set that would make you vant to put yourself through that kind of workout.

Several returning swimmers, including sophomore Peter Vanderkaay, junior Chuck Sayao, senior captain Dan Ketchum helped to ensure the team ' s success. Sophomore Davis Tarwater realized that this was a re-building year because the team graduated many senior leaders. Nevertheless, fueled by their 2003 Big 10 Championship win, the team had high hopes. " We hoped to defend the Big 10 conference and remain in the top 10 at the NCAA championships, " said assistant coach Eric Namesnik. To make this goal, the team had to qualify numerous swimmers for the NCAA championships as well as swim well against tough opponents through the season. Several international competitions over the 2003 summer helped swimmers gain important experience and stay in shape. The team had swimmers compete in the World MEN ' S SWIM EASTERN MICHIGAN FLORIDA AUBURN GEORGIA TEXAS U.S. OPEN STANFORD PURDUE INDIANA NORTHWESTERN Championships in Barcelona, the Pan-American Games in Santo Domingo, and the World University Games in South Korea. These competitions helped the swimmers prepare for the 2004 summer Olympic time trials at which the team hoped to qualify several swimmers and divers. In order to beat competitive fellow American rivals including Minnesota, Stanford and Texas, the team relied heavily on its stronger events: the middle distance and distance freestyle. " No other college was as powerful or as deep in the distance free as we are, " Tarwater said. Other strengths also helped the team. " One of our main strengths was our work ethic. We practiced 10 times a week and no one ever messes around, " junior civil and environmental engineer Chuck Sayao said. However, Sayao realized that the team was lacking in sprinters. Despite this small weakness, the men ' s swim and dive team looked to be a serious competitor in both the Big 10 and the entire nation.

We were a sandwich team, lots of freshmen and lots of seniors, " head coach Jim Richardson said. Regardless, the team planned on placing in the top three in the Big 10 as well as improving from last year ' s 14 th place finish at the NCAA championships. In order to do this, the team needed to maximize its strengths. Sophomore material science engineer Clinique Brundidge felt that the team excelled in its shorter, sprinting events such as the 50 and 100 yard freestyle as well as the distance freestyle events.

Regardless, the Wolverines depended on their top athletes to defeat key opponents like Florida State, Indiana and Wisconsin. The team trained hard in preparation for the rest of the season. " We revamped our dry land and weight training workouts. Hopefully, that will increase our strength, " Brundidge said. Also in preparation for larger, more competitive meets, junior Amy McCullough participated in the World University Games in South Korea during the summer of 2003. " Competing in the World University Games is the epitome of what you can do for the sport travel and swim for your country and increase your ability to perform, " Richardson said.

Having played a five set semi-final against David Nalbandian the previous night, the only worry for Roddick was his physical condition. However, this did not prove to seriously affect Roddick ' s abilities. During the match, Roddick served 23 total aces, never had a serve broken, and won 89% of his first-serve points. The win was Roddick ' s first Grand Slam title. In another highly anticipated match, Justine Henin-Hardenne ' s defeated fellow Belgian Kim Clijters in the women ' s singles final.

With home ice advantage and the third seed, the team stepped onto the ice for post-season play in the NCAA Midwest Regionals for the opening game against no. 9 seeded Maine. The Wolverines came out on top with a 2-1 victory. In the final round of Regionals, they upset no. 2 seeded Colorado College. The team was on its third consecutive trip to the Frozen Four, with the opportunity to come away champions. The Wolverines were pitted against the Golden Gophers of Minnesota in the first round of the Frozen Four. Sophomore front lineman Jeff Tambellini said, " Before the game I was the most excited that I have ever been to play a game. There was an intense electricity that ran through the building and was something that I will never forget. " The team came out strong in the first period, dominating shots on goal. They managed to capitalize on one shot mid-way through the period, as freshman forward Brandon Kaleniecki ' s goal slid past the opponent, taking an early 1-0 lead. The Gophers turned up the intensity in the second By Randielle Humphries period, forcing Michigan to come back even harder. Senior forward Jed Ortmeyer found himself open at the top of the crease, increasing Michigan ' s lead to 2-0 at the end of the second. With the lead, Michigan knew they would have to play tough defensively throughout the remainder of the game and the final period to advance to the championship game. However, Minnesota managed to sneak a goal past freshman goaltender Al Montoya early in the third, closing in on the Wolverines. Near the end of the period, the Gophers scored again, tying the game, and sending it into overtime. In a first goal situation, the Wolverines felt the intensity of the moment. Despite a strong effort, the Gophers managed to score the game-winning goal, ending the hard fought battle and the season for the Wolverines. Tambellini recalled, " As I watched the winning go in, I was motionless. The toughest part was watching my two line mates faces as their collegiate careers ended at that moment. " Despite a devastating conclusion, the team finished the season quite successfully and they kept a good outlook going into the 2003-2004 season. " I feel that there is no reason we can ' t get back to the NCAA tournament and take another good run at it. It truly has the makings of a great season, " Tambellini said.

Neff photo Ice Hockey 187 HOCKEY Making i , 4- n, .,.- I . mtmmmmJ Yo5t Rumble From relentless taunting of the opposing team to echoing choruses of " Hail to the Victors, " the crowds at Yost Ice Arena were energetic and the atmosphere was intense. Despite the relatively small venue, Yost was often recognized as the one of the most hostile environments in all of hockey. The Big House held well over 100,000 fans while Yost sat a mere 6,637 people, but the crowd paid no attention to numbers. Senior Spanish major Matt Dulas said, " I think the most important aspect of this environment is the structure of the arena itself. Everyone is right on top of the ice and the student section is right over the opposing goal. So especially in games against Ohio State and Michigan State where we all really got into it, it got really loud in Yost. It ' s a pretty small arena, so the sound resonates, and it ' s just really loud. We ' ve earned every comment that has been made about us, in that it ' s difficult to play here. " Second year law school student Ken Thompson added, " The atmosphere at Yost Ice Arena is a lot more intense than football or basketball games. You saw the goalie getting visibly disturbed when we taunted him. " The noise level was just one of the things that made Yost ' s atmosphere so unique and uninviting for visiting teams. Because Yost was such a small place, the fans could make their presence in the venue easily known. Sophomore astronomy and astrophysics major Ryan Anderson shared, " Yost is much more up close and personal than football games you know the players can hear the cheers. " Sophomore Josh Blumenthal liked the layout Byjacquelyn Zacny of Yost; " It gets everyone involved, so it ' s not just like playing on the ice. It ' s like the crowd is on the ice with them. " While some cheers supported the team, most were directed at the opposing team and filled with curse words or negativity. When Coach Red Berenson went onto the ice with his grandson before the first game of the season he asked the students to tame their language, specifically the list of put-downs following the " See ya! " chant. The cheer subsided for a few games, but during the Michigan State game the chant was revitalized and remained for the rest of the season. Most students felt that the profanity and rowdiness helped boost the atmosphere of the arena.Junior mechanical engineering major Steve Kren explained, " Yost has the most hostile crowd . . . It ' s such a great atmosphere for the students because there ' s so many unique chants that not only help our team but put down their goalie. " Even the pep band joined in the taunting. During the Michigan State game, the band played the tune of " If you ' re happy and you know it " while the student section sang, " If you can ' t get into college. " And throughout the OSU series the student section made fun of one player by calling him a " dirty hobbit. " During the second game of the series, the pep band played two selections from " The Lord of the Rings " to assist in the joke. Despite its size, the atmosphere at Yost provided visitors with an electrifying experience. Junior aerospace engineering major Mike Sinclair summarized it best: " [Yost] can be tense, exciting, exhilarating, and exhausting all at the same time. " 188 Sports y I j yl Pumping their fists to ' Let ' s Go Blue ' , the crowd at Yost gets into the game. The crowd was known for taunting the opponents in support of their Wolverines. .

This group of 25 dedicated players, led by Captain Andy Burnes, began the season with an exhibition win against York on October 4. Rookie Mike Brown, kinesiology major, declared, " It was the best feeling to win my first game wearing the maize and blue. I knew there were many more to come. " The win was just the first of many more to come. With a demanding 30 game schedule in addition to grueling practices, it was extremely important for the team to stay focused and enthusiastic. Sophomore goalie Noah Ruden explained, " The time commitment and dedication is enormous, but it is for something I love, so I don ' t mind. We put in close to five hours a day during the week for practice and training, and on the weekends even more, depending on if we ' re on the road or not. Hockey takes up most of our time, but we spend it with our best friends and doing something we love. " Opening the season with a 9 and 2 record, the team proved themselves worthy of their high pre-season ranking. However, the team then went on to win only two out of the next eight games.

Organizations offered students the ability to join something they were passionate about as well as establish a smaller community on campus. With a selection of over seven hundred different groups that encompassed virtually every interest from philanthropy and athletics to politics and religion, students were . afforded the opportunity to find their perfect niche. Through their involvement, students gained valuable life lessons by taking on leadership roles and giving back to the community. The extensive collection of organizations also provided the University with an impressive and diverse character, while students realized that their involvement and introduction to new people made the time dedicated well spent.

" This group of 48 girls consisted of two different competition groups, the Senior and Collegiate teams. As a new member of the Collegiate team, Haley Smith, freshman primary education major remarked " Everyone is so nice. When you start skating on the team you have 23 automatic- friends. It makes the transition from home to [the University] a lot easier. " With five officers and four captains, the team put in an incredible amount of effort and practice time all year for various competitions. " [One of my goals is] to win the division, to be at the top, and have fun, " expressed Averil Davis, senior anthropology and zoology major. The team competed at several competitions nationally and internationally, including the Prague Cup in Prague, Czech Republic for the Senior team and the U.S. Synchronized Skating Team Championships (Nationals) in San Diego, California. " [My favorite competition is] Nationals because it ' s the culmination of all the hard work and dedication, " explained Vice President Sarah Moran, junior marketing major. Outside of the ice, the team did charity work and held various social events. Club president Brynn Dery, junior marketing major, commented, " Each team brings something different [to the University]. The Senior team brings a lot of prestige because we compete internationally. The Collegiate team brings a lot of prestige at the college level. " This talented group of girls deserved the recognition they received. " We bring national and international exposure to the University and we are successful. People can look at the University ' s name and see that we have a great team so we attract some of the best skaters to come here, " said Katie Bach, junior Mechanical Engineering major.

The Society ' s " Trick or Treat for Habitat for Humanity, " and their involvement with the K-Grams " BookMARK " program and the Ronald McDonald House were just a few programs sponsored by the society during the 2003-2004 academic year. Porsha Gills, a Vice President for NSCS, said she looked forward to her event, the Planning for College Success program, the most. " This will be our first year initiating this program, " she said. " We are all just trying to make it the best program yet. " Over 2000 students belonged to the NSCS chapter at the University. Jennifer Hsu, Vice President of Membership, said the requirements of membership were not extensive. The society sent students with at least a 3.4 GPA invitations over the summer of their freshman and sophomore years, and if their subsequent application met other criteria, they could pay a small fee to become a lifetime member. The Michigan chapter of NSCS was one of the newest. " I think every year our chapter is getting more dynamic. With new initiatives and events each year, we are an organization that truly showcases growth, " said Cills. A few difficulties the organization faced were recruiting non-active members to participate and keeping active members going during the summer months. Hsu said NSCS had a lot of members on campus, but many believed becoming involved was more of an undertaking than it actually was. " That ' s where the discrepancy lies in NSCS, " said Hsu. Regardless of student misconceptions, NSCS provided the most painless way to do community service. Weekly emails were sent out to all student members, regardless of how active they had been in the past. " It is very easy to get involved with NSCS, " said Hsu. " Students can be as active as they want. " Every day provided a new opportunity for members to begin. Front Row: Taylor Millicah.Allie McGonagle, Angela McLoed.Tamara Dolyniuk, Jessica Otto.

Phi Alpha Kappa had existed on campus for 73 years, which made them one of the oldest fraternities at the University. In the words of the organization ' s founder, Calvin Prism, they demonstrated that they were a " brotherhood of individuals of common interests " , which sought " the development of the higher qualities of the mind and nobler impulses of the heart. " At Phi Alpha Kappa, members ranged from sophomores to third year graduate students. Pledgeship lasted two semesters, after which a pledge was voted into full membership. The organization had seven pledges: four in-house and three living out of the house. The brothers had an active interest in the organization and its focus and were integrated into the house without any instances of humiliating hazing, as they stressed the idea of accepting " members based on who they are and what they stand for, not on what they put up with. " Events the men participated in included a weekly Bible study together and with other Christian organizations, a canoe trip, a fall camping trip, a spring party, and a formal banquet. They also offered an athletic program with opportunities for participation in many sports. Through efforts put in by all members, Phi Alpha Kappa continued to define the character of their organization as " Christian men living together to further their walk with God.

The smoking ban in all residence halls and the decision that fish are the only animals allowed in the residence halls were a few of the many victories for the RHA and the constituents they represented. RHA also coordinated popular events such as Pre-Class Bash, Homecoming Scavenger Hunt, Res Hall Feud, Siblings Weekend and Charity Ball. Unfortunately, the Pre-Class Bash, a well-liked event especially with the incoming students, did not occur this year due to inclement weather. The organization also controlled the RHA movie channel that solely focused on the movies that the students wanted to see.The 48 representatives, elected through either hall councils or multicultural councils, along with the executive board headed by president and political science junior Amy Keller, represented the needs of the students living in residence halls. This year the focus was Entree Plus expansion. Complaints of many students prompted the RHA to negotiate with the administration about expanding Entree Plus to Angell Hall, the MLB, and other venues. Keller was pleased with the Residence Hall Association agenda, " You can change things. Its great when you have students voice their opinions and you bring that to the administration. " Weekly meetings on Thursday nights afforded all students a chance to address their concerns to the association. Students could also contact a hall RHA representative via email. The representatives voted on resolutions according to the needs of their hall mates and they were also divided into core committees that focused on individual issues such as multicultural, and lesbian, gay, transgender, and bisexual initiatives. Rachel Feldman, a freshman in the Residential College, was aware of the importance of her position as a hall representative; " There ' s student input. We bring issues that need to be addressed. " This year, RHA received a coveted spot as the host of the regional " NO Frills " Conference. Feldman enjoyed her participation in the association representing East Quad at the weekly meetings that were efficiently run by Keller and the rest of the executive board; " There is a parliamentary procedure. There are guidelines and people follow them. It ' s nice. " Front Row: Adrian Sanusi. Kimberly Warzyniec. Duana Daniels. Aron Gold, Amy Keller. Jia Jian Lee, Abminav. Verma, Sharon Mitchell.

However, in 1985, that is exactly how it happened. Raising S27,()(K), Dr. Gordan Klatt walked and ran for 24 hours in order to raise money for the American Cancer Society (ACS). On April 5, 2003, the University held its own inaugural relay on Palmer Field. Raising $86,000, the 750 participants helped the University place itself in the top ten Relay fundraisers for the year. It also won the Great Lakes Heart of Relay award for best college relay in its division, and came in second nationally an astonishing feat for its first year. Relay for Life was a celebration of life lives lost and lives saved. Teams w alked around the track for 24 hours and raised money for cancer research. It was the main charity benefit for ACS, raising more than $245 million in 2002. " Being involved with Relay for Life has been an absolutely phenomenal experience. It is amazing to see hundreds of students come together to remember those lost to cancer and to honor those who have survived, " said 2004 Relay co-chair junior Betsy Chase. This year, participators and members of the Relay For Life committees hoped to raise even more money. Volunteers worked ceaselessly, contacting students and adults to participate and businesses in the hopes that they would sponsor the event. The Relay for Life committee members worked diligently to increase campus awareness. " We are hosting skating nights at Yost, bar nights at Ricks, handing out flyers and hot chocolate on the Diag and setting up tables in the basement of the union to talk to people and spread the word. We want as many people as possible to know about Relay and the wonderful benefits which accrue from participation in this event, " said 2004 Recruitment Chair, junior Marie Kendy. 2004 Relay co-chair, junior Kate Lennox, added, " Besides raising money, our hope is to create more awareness and education so our generation will keep on fighting for a cure [for cancer].

Members of the Student Alumni Council (SAC) didn ' t have to wait to find out. The vision of the group was to help bridge the gap between the alumni and the current student population. Working alongside the Alumni Association, committees planned various activities for students to take part in. President Elise Freimuth, senior film and English major, explained, " By creating committees we are allow members to learn leadership skills by working on large scale events. " SAC functioned under an Executive Board consisting of a Freimuth and six vice presidents. The group held bi-weekly meetings at the Alumni Center in order to plan and organize the events. In addition, SAC was responsible for giving out the Student Legacy Award at the Michigan Leadership Awards Ceremony. Vice President Niraj Patel, senior business major, commented, " We review the accomplishments of students on campus and reward them with a lifetime membership to the Alumni Association so they can continue making an impact on the University. " Exam Kits, another service offered by SAC, provided a way for parents to send care packages around exam times to students living off-campus. Working together with the Alumni Association, SAC created a program called Student Alumni Connections. The program allowed an alumnus to sit down with a group of selected students for a roundtable discussion. Students asked the alumnus for advice about making the best of their time at the University. Members of SAC were on a point system and were required to attain 500 participation points before they became a full member. Points could be earned in a variety of ways. They traveled to the Northwestern away football game with the Alumni Association and had a retreat to a winter resort in northern Michigan after winter break called Michigania.Tae- Kyung Kim, junior Political Science major andVP, expressed, " Michigania... creates a great opportunity to reflect on our past successes and future goals. You get to be in each others company outside of the school setting. " This group bursting with Michigan pride and spirit worked extremely hard all year to make the years events a success. By the end of the year, SAC members achieved their main goal and purpose of being the link between Wolverines past and present. Front Row: Shefali Saxena, Donika Gou. Niraj Patel, Nikhil Kumtha.

With almost a decade of history under its belt, PSA continued its strong tradition of sponsoring Persian cultural and social activities, promoting an understanding of Persian culture, and building an environment of friendship and support for University students. The leadership of board members and the active membership contributed to a feeling of community and consistently large turnouts at PSA events. This year, PSA ' s first ever " Charity Weekend, " an expanded version of the annual charity event, followed the Welcome Back Dinner. " The Charity Weekend is the largest event of fall term for us. This year, it will include two main events: ' A Night of Persian Culture ' on Friday, with performances from the Michigan Persian Music Ensemble, displays of Persian art and photographs, as well as a guest performance from the Indian Students Association, and a five on five soccer tournament on Saturday, " said Nelofar Agharahimi, an LSA junior and a member of PSA ' s five-person Executive Board. " We usually raise $1,000, but we are expecting to raise more this year. From the beginning, our proceeds have usually benefited a charity for children. Thus, this year, donations will be going to Mott ' s Children Hospital for bone marrow research. " PSA ' s largest event was always the Annual Persian Cultural Show, the most recent of which took place in March, drawing an audience of over 1,000 and over 55 participants to the Power Center for the Performing Arts. " My favorite event is definitely the Annual Persian Cultural Show. It will be the sixth one this year. A lot of hard work goes into it, but the cultural show is truly amazing. There are funny skits, beautiful dances, mesmerizing music, and more, " said LSA sophomore Nellie Kargar, an active member in PSA and their liaison to the United Asian American Organizations. In addition to the " Charity Weekend " and the Annual Persian Cultural Show, smaller events took place during the year. " We have movie nights and this year have added coffeehouse style get-togethers where we can practice speaking our Persian language. This year the National Iranian American Council is also hosting a workshop for students who want to be more involved in the Iranian-American community, " said Agharahimi. The Persian Student Association ' s events drew a wide audience, which attracted both Persian and non-Persian students alike. For non-Persian students, events offered a chance to learn more extensively about the culture while having a great time. Persians found that PSA was not only a great way to share student ' s love for Persian culture and to get involved in the community, but it also was a way to make some life-long friends.

Thomas photo Organizations 209 THE MICHIGANENSIAN vu Lauren v Standards were set high for the Michiganensian staff to create a yearbook that followed the award-winning traditions of years past. The 2004 staff consisted of editors, writers, photographers, and business staffers who spent night after late night developing another nationally recognized book. The work, although at times extensive, gave many staffers an inside look into their potential careers. " The Ensian really is a good first look into the world of publishing. Many of us are communications or English concentrators and want to continue in this field after we graduate. We are getting a glimpse of what it takes right now, " noted sophomore Academics Section Editor, Katrina Deutsch.The publication which was created over the course of six major deadlines from the end of August to the middle of February was a documentation of the history of the University. Shelves in the office were lined with issues of the Ensian dating back as far as 1897 giving the staff a sense of pride and distinction. Weekends filled with final deadline work passed unnoticed; so, in an attempt to regain sanity and camaraderie, the Michiganensian staff frequently held parties helping to unite the 36 members of staff. The two most important of these gatherings were the annual holiday party and end-of-the- year gala. The festivities only strengthened the bonds that had already formed in the office. " The intimacy shared with fellow staffers, whether it be grinding at the galas, sending prank e- mails from each others ' inboxes, or sitting on the sofa talking about our significant others made for a great work environment. Perhaps it was our open-mindedness and acceptance of others, or maybe it was just that we are all really hormonal, " stated senior Photographer and Business Staff Member, Christophe Tedjasukmana. At the beginning of the year, a picnic was held at Burns Park where staff members participated in a scavenger hunt for a little friendly competition and bonding. At the end of the year, all of the extra work and frustration paid off as the Michiganensian upheld its title and maintained its prestige among other universities ' yearbooks. The publication was a member of the Associated Collegiate Press (ACP) and the Columbia Scholastic Press Association (CSPA), awarders of the Pacemaker and Crown awards respectively. Unique to the publication was the fact that the Michiganensian was one of he few national student-run publications. Its successes were therefore even more impressive and thrilling for the members of staff. Business matters were governed to Lindsay Norris, a senior communications major and the elected Business Manager, and editorial content was under the discretion of the Editor-in-Chief, Melissa Mariola, junior communications and English major. " It has been such an honor to be part of this highly renowned publication. Year after year, the Ensian has been accorded the coveted Pacemaker and Gold Crown awards. I know that I will walk away from this position with some of the greatest experiences in business one could get at my age and most importantly, unbelievable memories with an absolutely amazing group of people. I cannot imagine a better student job, " commented Mariola. 210 Organizations liken, stated tophe Melissa Mariola, Sarah Aronson, Melissa Plotkowski.

Senior Jessica Smith, psychology major, characterized the organization as " of the most well-rounded organizations on campus. It provides so much for both the people who work with DM on campus and in the hospital and in all aspects. It really benefits everybody. " By gaining participation of over 3,000 students, DM held many activities throughout the year in order to raise money and help out the community. " We had one of our educational events, Pediatric Ability Day, for the second annual time. We invited people involved in the organization along with other people in the community and on campus. The purpose of the event was to get the word out there about what pediatric rehabilitation is and the different available therapy programs, " Nina Catklfio, junior psychology major, explained. There were only two requirements to be a dancer for DM this year. Each dancer had to raise a minimum of $250 and had to participate in the final event of the year, the marathon. The marathon consisted of an overnight celebration where dancers had to stand for thirty hours straight without sitting down. The planning committee organized many activities in order to keep the energy flowing. Chris Grapes, senior Business major, expressed, " The most exciting thing that the dancers remember is that there ' s a line dance that we learn throughout the marathon. The dancers learn it in segments of one-minute songs, and they mix it together at the end. It turns out to be a twelve-to-fifteen minute line dance, which is really fun. " With overwhelming support from all participants, the Dance Marathon gave money to over ten different charities and programs this year. All of the charities involved helping to improve children ' s ' physical strength and mobility. In the future, DM hopes to expand the project. " In the future, we are trying to create a DM long-term project. We ' re working on this right now to create something that Dance Marathon can be really proud of. Something like maybe a wing in a hospital, or a summer camp. Anything ' s possible, " Atul Porwal, senior Industrial and Operations Engineering major, described. Chris Niblock, senior Chemical Engineering major, stated, " I remember at my first marathon, [a child] couldn ' t walk. He was on crutches. Then at the last marathon, he ran across the stage. And that just hits your heart. It ' s unbelievable. There aren ' t even words to explain it. " Front Row: Atu! Porwal, Chris Grapes, Nupur Kanodia, Antonina Catalfio, Milind Chinog, Jessica Smith.

The officers of the Kinesiology Student Government (KSG) sought to unite the students of kinesiology and improve the understanding of the issues related to the school just as their predecessors had. With a heavy workload and social life to balance, one would ask what drives these students to office. For Athletic Training Representative, Katie O ' Conner, it was obligation. " I voice any concerns that are brought up by students to the student government. Due to the recent changes in the athletic department, one of the four components of Kinesiology, I saw that it needed to have a voice in the government. " Like the athletes they assisted throughout the school year, the KSG sought to present their student body with an open door for their concerns and to furnish the small community found almost exclusively within the Central Campus Recreational Building. The Kinesiology Student Government also wished to diversify their department. Throughout the school year, social activities sponsored and provided for and by the kinesiology department sought to stimulate individual character development while remaining a member of the small kinesiology community. One of the KSG ' s activities this year was the Martin Luther King Symposium in which the kinesiology department featured a panel of members to discuss diversity and its adverse affects to the campus community. Like O ' Conner and the rest of the Student Government voicing a concern over recognition, this symposium allowed for the kinesiology department to be a voice that was heard and recognized on campus.

Tedjasuktnana photo Organizations 217 STUDENTS OF THE WORLD The University of Michigan has been famous for its support of development of diversity and greatness. Through the successful beginnings of the Peace Corps, the office of LGBT affairs for the student body, and the controversial subject of affirmative action, the University ' s apt nature for a cultured and diverse future has grown. Following suite, the University has established the third chapter of Students of the World (SOW), a national society seeking to encourage college students ' global curiosity through experiencing and documenting international social and cultural issues. According to communications and English major Katrina Deutsch, " The main reason we do this is to be able to come back, share our experiences, and educate people on what we have learned. " Founded at Duke by students who sought to act as citizens of not only their academic community but global community as well, the University has now given a chance to students of their globally networked campus the responsibility to the future generations of the planet. Despite its early stages at the University, SOW, with a core team of 9 individuals have organized, contacted, fundraised, and earned their right to travel to countries such as Uganda, Russia, and Cuba to uncover and confront social issues that pose problems to their citizens. Equipped with writers, photographers, and filmographers, SOW documented their rubric adventures. The resources provided to SOW by their chapter members allowed for a cultivation of relationships with specific cultures and individuals of that culture all while developing a maturity and recognition of the individual as part of a unified team. For the summer of 2004, the organization decided to focus their mission on the AIDS epidemic in South Africa. The students traveled across the country for one month from the middle of May until the middle June. One of the key reasons for focusing on the AIDS issue was because they hoped to discover and document how the AIDS crisis was actually getting worse in South Africa unlike it had been previously noted in their trip to Uganda one summer before. While the SOW chapter was new to the University, the appeal of the organization has been relatively high, attracting individuals who seek to ability to work for a cause have shown interest in this society in their attempts to self-educate and understand the language of compassion.

Although the most well-known event orga- nized by the Detroit Project was DP Day, the group did volunteer- ing as well as clothing and food drives during the year as well. Photo courtesy of The Detroit Project Trying to keep their balance, three members remove shingles from the roof of a home in Detroit. The Detroit Project joined the Brightmoor Alliance which included numerous non- profit organizations who wished to aid for improvement in the community. Photo courtesy of The Detroit Project 220 Organizations THE DETROIT PROJECT The Detroit Project was a completely student run organization that developed partnerships with organizations in the city of Detroit and built community through service and education. The Detroit Project, commonly referred to as the DP, began in 1999 in Ann Arbor at the University. The DP focused on the community of Brightmoor, found in the northwest region of the city. Within the Brightmoor community, the DP had partnered with over 20 non-profit organizations and local schools. This year ' s executive director Jonathan Gleicher, Business School senior, discussed the increased emphasis of building relationships within the community. " As University students, we strive to work in partnership with the community. All of us at the DP are continuously inspired by the outstanding community organizations we work with. " The DP was actually a member of the Brightmoor Alliance, a coalition of non-profit organizations that aim to improve their neighborhood. Mari Kawamura, Brightmoor community director and senior majoring in health, poverty and the developing world, was directly involved in maintaining the DP ' s relationship with Brightmoor. " The community has been extremely hospitable, appreciative and cooperative. Instead of being weary of our support, they have invited us into their community to help in the mission to revitalize Detroit, " Kawamura said. The DP offered many ways for the University ' s students to create relationships with the Brightmoor community. Different from other organizations, the DP requires no membership or level of commitment for volunteers. At the heart of the organization was the central planning team. Fifty members made up the team which was subdivided into specific teams, each dealing with a different aspect of the DP. As for the volunteers, opportunities ranged from one time projects to weekly events. Director of the volunteer experience team and senior with a major in History, Maria Arnold said that the DP felt that this way more students were inclined to be a part of the organization. Arnold added, " Because of student ' s rigorous academic sc hedules, it is important for DP to allow flexibility and provide different volunteering options for interested volunteers. The DP is then able to make a greater impact on the community and demonstrate the commitment of students seeking to create a continued University of Michigan presence in Detroit. " The different projects included planting trees and flowers, cleaning up parks and lots, demolition of houses, tutoring kids and helping with Safe Nights. There are two large events that the DP annually puts on, the Food and Clothing Drive in the fall, and DP Day in the spring. Although the Detroit Project was centrally aimed at doing service in Detroit, the organization had also put forth an effort to introduce University students into the world of volunteering. " It ' s very exciting to see students that originally plan to participate once then decide to work with the community on a weekly basis. " This year was no different from the past years; the DP achieved its objectives and continued to se t higher goals. Front Row: Rebecca Mark. Mari Kawamura. Jeanette Dupure. Lauren Konchel.

Worcester photo Organizations 223 THE MICHIGAN DAILY tvu if. wn visfoJtnc efMcuuK Many students habitually picked up a copy of the Michigan Daily to browse in an attempt to maintain consciousness in classes; even those who forgot one before class were almost guaranteed to find a copy in any classroom from the proceeding class, but most likely with the crossword puzzle missing. The 2004 school year marked the " 1 13 th year of Editorial Freedom " for the Michigan Daily, a completely student-run publication located on the 2 nJ floor of the Office of Student Publications. The Daily was available to students both in print and through the Daily online website whose appearances and features were revamped and modified during the fall season. the opportunity to attend the Democratic caucuses of Iowa and New Hampshire for extensive coverage of the national presidential political races. The Daily, compromised of 1 54 editorial and 42 business staff members, boasted sections for local or national news, sports, arts, as well as student opinion. Senior communications major Nathan Winter found " Weekend, " a Thursday publishing of the Daily kept himself quite occupied throughout class. " They deal with interesting topics fairly exhaustively... it was the only thing that got me through until Monday. " Over the course of the year, the Daily had the opportunity to cover a wide spectrum of coverage thanks to the hustle and bustle of 2003 and 2004. A special edition newspaper was printed over the summer to cover the results of the Grutter v. Bollinger affirmative action trial that had ties to the University. At the end of December, The Daily created an issue declaring a Wolverine win over USC which was brought to Pasadena with the staff in case of a Michigan win in the Rosebowl. Instead, The Daily had to settle on documenting the Wolverine ' s loss and the overall unforgettable football season, bringing the undistributed copies back to Michigan. Also, in January several writers and photographers were afforded What captured the interest of many students were the front page photographs, daring students to pick up the paper to get a better glimpse. Students took notice of the commendable candid pictures of life on campus, such as the victory of the Wolverines against the Buckeyes to the community itself with photos and editorials of Border ' s strikes and the City Council elections in which several University students participated in. Despite last year ' s boycott of the Daily by select student organizations upset by inadequacy or misrepresentation of minorities, the Daily has reinstated itself as illustrious publication.

Y, Granata photo Organizations 227 PHI ALPHA DELTA The University ' s chapter of Phi Alpha Delta (PAD), the pre- law fraternity, had nearly 100 members this school year. PAD classified themselves as a co-ed, international, professional fraternity, and shared a main goal of achieving the success and gaining the information needed to get into the top law schools in the country. Sophomore civil and environmental engineering student Phil Johnson ' s experiences with PAD helped him in thinking about his future; " My experiences in PAD have solidified my decision to go to law school. " Along with speakers, panels, and contacts with other PAD members across the country, the fraternity also held social events, so that the brothers and sisters could get to know each other better. Among these bonding activities included at least two social events, two service events, and two fund-raising events, along with the weekly meetings. These social events proved extremely successful for bringing members together. With no official fraternity house, some members even ended up living together off-campus. " The friends I have met in the fraternity will be the friends I have for life, " Johnson said. PAD prided itself on bringing together a large group of people from different backgrounds with a similar interest in law. Senior political science and economics major and president of PAD Christopher Mancuso said, " Being a member of Phi Alpha Delta has been one of the greatest experiences for me at the University. I have honestly never been around a group of more intelligent, passionate, and caring people who want to make a real difference in the profession and the greater community. With all of the legal contacts and lifelong friends that I have met, I will truly cherish my memories of the fraternity for the rest of my life. " Front Row: Stevens Kelly, Chris Mancuso.

The Pencak Silat USA University group was established in 1993. Since then, classes have been taught by Master Instructor Bapak Waleed, " Leonardo Stoute. " The classes were conducted in East Quad ' s Residential College as well as at Pierpont Commons on North Campus. The University Pencak Silat group also performed and choreographed demonstrations each semester with productions at East Hall, Power Center, and Rackham Auditorium. Furthermore, the Pencak Silat USA group conducted a " Women ' s Self Defense Workshop " for the female residents of Mary Markley Residence Hall. One class offered was " Meditation in Motion, " Seni Silat Haqq which focuses towards the meditative and dance-like aspects, or Kembangan, of the martial arts. Waleed stated that " Meditation in Motion " was much more than a physical action or dance. The movements were drawn from the energy of nature and the martial art of Seni Silat. There were practical and effective applications used in the realm of self defense and combat as well. Marwan Gammash, Near Eastern Studies PhD student, said that " the training incorporates the music, dance, and martial arts of Indonesia and Malaysia, otherwise known as Seni Silat Haqq - the Art of Truth. " Jennifer Kimball, sophomore fine arts major, related, " The movements train your body to move with feeling and balance, train your mind to develop sensitivity and heightened awareness, train your spirit to connect with your breath and energy. " The other class available was Pencak Silat Satria Muda. This class focused on application of self defense and martial arts. Ali Hashmi, Mechanical Engineering PhD student, said, " I have previous training in the martial arts, but I never have seen such practical application incorporated into a self defense and combat system. The movements are executed with precision utilizing effective defenses and unpredictable offensive maneuvers. " Front Row: NesrenWaly, Jennifer Kimball.Aarth Rao. NunuYsloff.

Weiner photo ' ' 232 Organizations COMPULSIVE LYRES (t An unexpected event in the spring of 1997 changed Michigan a cappella history. Members of Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity and Alpha Phi sorority joined together to form a singing team and successfully achieved what had never been previously accomplished in the history of Greek Week; the group received a perfect score. The two organizations decided that they would continue singing together because they enjoyed the experience so much, and so the a cappella group called Greek to Mi was formed that fall. When the group first began, all who wanted to join from the initial sing team were welcome. But, as time went on, members realized that policies would have to change in order to compete with other on campus singing groups. In the winter of 1998, the first auditions were held, and a transformation occurred. The result was fourteen new members from different fraternities and sororities on campus, and a new name to describe their skills: the Compulsive Lyres. During this time, however, the biggest focus on camaraderie and friendship amongst the members; music was second in importance. As new members with more dedication towards performing and excellence joined, they were often disappointed by the lack of seriousness in reference to performances. This led to excessive turnover levels for the group, and they decided they had to refocus. January of 2001 brought along another restructure period, and the audition process was opened to all members of the University, not just those in the Greek System. This was the first step of many that led to excellence and success for the Compulsive Lyres. By 2002, their first attempt at a studio recording was featured on the " 2002 Best Of College A Cappella " (BOCA) album, and their first entry into the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella (ICCA) advanced them to the quarterfinals. The Compulsive Lyres went on to win the title of ' International Grand Champions of Collegiate A Cappella, " when they took first place at the finals in New York City ' s Lincoln Center. With fifteen active members in the 2003-2004 season, they remained committed to their goals of a cappella excellence. i xymAoM u ' vuweti Front Row: Elizabeth Engle, Emily Bretz, Krista Luli.

Through its vast array of activities, MSA encouraged and facilitated interaction between students and the University administration, and advocated student issues and concerns. MSA utilized five committees, thirteen commissions, and two task forces to carry out administrative functions, focus on several student issues and bring projects to MSA, and perform certain functions within certain time frames, respectively. Working in cooperation with the Office of Vice President of Student Affairs, MSA represented student concerns and interests to the Board of Regents, making sure that students had a say in the University ' s decision-making process. Most student groups on campus were registered with MSA. As a registered group, it could take full advantage of the services provided by MSA. For most groups, funding opportunities were the most popular service. Mainly through the Budget Priority Committee, MSA distributed close to $200,000 per term to student groups, allowing them to put on programs and stay active. MSA also provided several services and made resources available to students. New services included an Air Bus that took students to and back from the airport at an affordable price, and an " Advice Online " web page that allowed students to rate classes and professors so that future students could be warned about or encouraged to take certain classes. MSA strove to involve all students on campus. Students who weren ' t officially elected could still join committees or commissions, or become an MSA appointee to a University committee. Providing many opportunities for students to be involved in student government, MSA played an important role in ensuring that the student voice could be expressed and heard.

Well, okay, so we could not have really claimed to have helped create Donkey Kong but we can claim to have entertained University students galore for nearly a century and this past year was no exception. We put out four brand spankin ' new issues of comedy for the whole family (except little kids) (and old people). In those issues we ravaged many with our comic wit. From focusing on attacking things like television, conspiracy theories and technology, we branched off into jokes on George Bush (who we don ' t like very much), Jenna Jameson (who we ' re really pretty fond of) and squirrels (who we ' re rather indifferent to). We also terrorized innocent passersby, created whole new categories of obscene scatological references, fought " The Man " to undermine " The Institution " and start " The Revolution " and made fun of John Navarre a little, although in the end he probably didn ' t deserve it. So basically, it was business as usual in our always bizarro little corner of 420 Maynard. New staff members joined and added new and funny ideas and new and frightening body odors. Old staff members left and stole what they could on the way out. Offensive e-mails were sent in mind shattering quantities, Daily staff members were mocked, video games were played, alcohol was imbued, and occasionally, very occasionally, we got a little work done. We gained invaluable publishing skills (learning how to write everything three days before the issue is due after spending the previous month just sitting around and insulting each other), honed our writing abilities (as long as our future employers don ' t have any ' lawyers ' interested in preventing us from writing ' libel ' , ' slander ' and ' unmentionable obscenities ' ) and had a really good time doing it (no, seriously). We made jokes that will last for years and friends that will last a lifetime. Or at least until we graduate and abandon them. In short, it was a good year here at the world ' s premiere comedy magazine and giant inflatable penis emporium. We laughed, we cried, we drank heavily. It was a special time.

The general functions of LSA-SG were wide and comprehensive. Representatives were responsible for lobbying and adopting resolutions on the behalf of LSA students. Their job allowed them to be a voice for all of the college ' s members. Other actions included originating student projects and activities as well as making and sanctioning rules governing the conduct of LSA students. They also appointed student representatives to committees, boards, and panels responsible for focusing on issues pertaining to one specific area of concern. Through campus-wide elections, representatives were elected and assigned to one of the various committees: appointments, budget allocation, public activities, academic affairs, and communication. The appointments committee placed LSA students on various LSA committees, which occurred in the beginning of both Fall and Winter term. The budget allocation committee made all of the recommendations for the allocation of Government funds to student organizations and monitor the expenditure of the funds. The academic affairs committee addressed problems that arose in the college of LSA, and were committed to improving the education of LSA students by connecting with students in residence halls, surveys, classrooms. The communications committee was responsible for outreach, publications, and publicity for LSA-SG. The communications committee was also in charge of creating LSA-Today, a LSA- SG newsletter, and for maintaining the LSA-SG website. LSA-SG interacted with a variety of student organizations in order to help sponsor events on campus with the aid of allocated budget money and the countless hours of hard work and dedication by the twenty-nine active representatives. The success of their active participation with co-sponsorship was the result of activities like Dance Marathon, the Ethnic Studies Fair, Ben Folds Five concert at Hill A uditorium, and the LSA Concentrators Fair.

Options for first-year students were limited as residence halls seemed the obvious choice for most. Some upper-classmen also chose to live in the residence halls either as a resident or Resident Advisor, but the majority sought other options including cooperatives, apartments, houses, family housing, or special interest housing, such as the German House in Baits Residence Hall on North Campus. Wherever students chose to reside, they quickly transformed their living space into a comfortable atmosphere that was easy to call their home away from home. At the w same time, individuals soon discovered the responsibilities associated with living on his or her own. Yet, student homes were found to be perfect places to uncover new friendships and express an individual sense of self. - University Housing - by erica margolius Situated far away from the crazy Greenwood Avenues and Elm Streets of central campus, the Northwood 1-V complexes provided a peaceful atmosphere for students and faculty to raise families. With 1,483 available apartments and 3,777 residents, Northwood I-V comprised the third largest family housing operation in the United States. The units ranged from efficiencies to three bedrooms and were available to married students and faculty (same-sex domestic partnerships also qualified for eligibility) or single parents with legal custody of children. In addition to providing basic living quarters, the University family housing program offered numerous resources to assist family members. Perhaps the two most important resources Family Housing provided were child- care programs and a health clinic. Although limited in the number of available spots, the Child Development Center, the University ' s year-round licensed childcare facility on North Campus, and the Pound House on central campus provided enriching environments where University parents could leave their children during the day. The health clinic, also located on North Campus, offered preventative and diagnostic care to families. Other benefits for family housing residents included a language program teaching English for the large international population, a Single Parent network, and various courses on topics ranging from yoga to car repair. The majority of these activities took place in the Family Housing Community Center located on Northwood V. The community center was considered by many to be the nucleus of the family residential area. " This was the first place they (residents) stopped to pick up their keys and the last place they visited when they turned in their keys at the end of the year, " commented Family Housing director Melaku Mekonnen. He added, " We are comfortable with the level of service we provide, but are always looking for areas of improvement. " Families gather at a picnic table outside of their homes on North Campus to have dinner in the brisk autumn weather. Those living in the Northwood housing units were provided with an abundance of resources from playgrounds and picnic tables outside of their homes to programs such as the Parent-Child Playgroup. Y.

Evans photo b u r s I e y 248 Housing CO N AL The residents of the Owen House co-op take time out of a busy day to share a meal together. The community found within co-ops was a big reason students opted to live there. Y. Granata photo by robert fowler Student cooperatives provided an alternative housing option besides dorms, frats, apartments and houses. The co-op ' s governing body, the Inter-Cooperative Council, was established in 1932 to help students remain in college during the Depression. Still boasting the cheapest living rates on campus, the co-ops averaged at least $200 less than most dorms each semester. The co-ops brought other advantages to students besides inexpensive prices, such as proximity to campus and opportunities to meet new people. Some distinguishing characteristics between various co-ops included their pet and diet policies. Junior economics major Sean Ziegler lived in the Debs Co-op, which embraced a strictly vegetarian meal plan for its residents. Junior elementary education major Mandi Wingate lived in the Truth Co-op and experienced other facets of co-op life. " There is definitely a greater margin of control here than in the dorms. Our own house members and officers run things. It ' s a democracy too. Everyone has a say, " Wingate said. Some disadvantages also existed when living in a co- op. ICC president Yuka Makioka felt that co-ops sometimes eliminated personal space since the bathrooms, kitchen and common areas were all shared. She also felt that maintenance could be a problem. " We fix stuff ourselves, and some of the houses aren ' t new and some are historical houses, so maintenance can be a huge time commitment, " Makioka said. Living with several people also caused some discrepancies. " There ' s always people who don ' t agree with you or who don ' t get the room they want, but dealing with people is just part of the democracy, " Ziegler said. Junior economic and history major Mikel Canete chose to live in a fraternity in lieu of a co-op. " Co-ops are kind of like a frat, but without the sweet parties, " Canete said. However, he also resoned that although co-ops would allow less privacy, they could provide a cleaner environment than both frats and regular houses. To keep the co-ops running smoothly, the students bypassed their differences and worked together. Residents each contributed four hours of work per week to the house. Duties ranged from cooking dinner to cleaning toilets to planning parties. Other responsibilities also included holding an officer position or serving on the Board of Directors. Several co-ops also celebrated a " Work Holiday, " their modified version of spring- cleaning. Regardless of these extra responsibilities, hundreds of students called a co-op home.

Evans photo 250 Housing Freshmen check in to their new home for the school year, Markley Residence Hall. Moving in to the dorms was a hectic but exciting time for freshmen, as it represented the start of their college career. . Neff photo Residence Halls 251 by ema sadikovic After a sleuth of break-ins and " peeping toms " plagued residence halls over the course of the 2001 school year, the University administration decided to undertake a significant and pricey step to mitigate the problem: installation of electronic locks. The cost was staggering, but well worth it due to an immense drop in the number of break-ins and other disturbances. The electronic lock system was implemented in all but five dorms: Bursley, Fletcher, Baits I and II, Markley, and Stockwell. These residence halls are scheduled to be equipped with the new electronic locks by Fall 2004. The old lock system used in the residence halls was a key and lock system. The upgrade to the new electronic locks includes a card with a magnetic strip and a code to enter rooms. Residents had to first swipe the card and then enter a code: the last four digits of their social security number. Therefore, to enter a specific room you have to have the card that matches the room and the resident ' s personal information. The installation, for the residence halls not yet changed over to the new lock system, was ongoing throughout the school year. The installation of one door with the electronic lock system required only 45 minutes. Housing promised that roughly 6,400 doors would be outfitted with the new lock system by Fall 2004. Overall, the new locks were met with a positive reaction. Most students found the lock system more convenient and safe. Randy Ip, a freshman in LSA residing in Couzens, was fiercely impressed with the new lock system, " I love it. When you go to the bathroom to wash your hands, it locks automatically. Before some people did not lock their doors. It ' s also safer because to break-in, you would need the card and the code. " As to costs, he claimed, " The cost is worth it because it protects all of us. " However, not everyone was happy with the electronic locks. Kelly Wendling, a freshman in the Engineering school dreaded the time when her Stockwell door would get equipped with the electronic lock saying, " I prefer the traditional locks. The electronic locks take away some of the charm. They give the dorms a hotel-like feeling " . A student opens the door t o his room in West Quad using the new lock system. Many students found the new system, complete with a card and code for entry, more safe and convenient than the previous key entry system. L.

They allowed members to get to know staff and embrace each other ' s differences at the same time. The six programs offered were the Lloyd Hall Scholars Program, the Michigan Community Scholars Program, the Max Kade German Residence Program, the UROP in Residence Program, the Women in Science and Engineering Residence Program, the Health Sciences Scholars Program, and the Residential College. These groups allowed students a chance to feel more connected to the University as a whole and made the transition from high school to college much easier. Some of these programs were residential, while others did not require a live-in environment. Regardless of which field of study a student was interested in, there was a program available to satisfy his her needs. A specific program, for example, was the Health Sciences Scholars Program for students interested in health issues. This particular program was for first year students wishing to pursue a health-related profession. The program required participation in a meticulous, two credit, two semester course. With a combination of hands-on experience and the opportunity to work with a variety of health care professionals and health settings, the Health Sciences Scholars Program stressed critical thinking, writing, and group project work. The Lloyd Hall Scholars Program offered freshman and sophomore students an academic community where they learned to use the wide variety of resources offered at the University in a smaller, more intimate setting. Students at all levels of proficiency in German were invited to join the Max Kade German Residence. Supported by the Max Kade Foundation, the Department of Germanic Languages and Literatures sponsored a residence where students had the chance to learn and practice more German in a non-classroom setting. Students listen as Charles Samenow, a developer of the Anti-Substance Abuse Program (ASAP) and Pritzker medical student at the University of Chicago, talks about opportunities and the experiences within the health profession.

Weekend activities varied for each individual, ranging anywhere from just hanging out at home, to partying, to a study night in the library. J. Neff photo Residence Halls 259 D by katrina deutsch One aspect of student life that the University prided itself on was diversity. Attracting students from various backgrounds across the country and around the world gave the University an opportunity to introduce new cultures and ethnicities to students. Students living in the residence halls had the privilege of both a Minority Peer Advisor (MPA) and a Multicultural Council in their building to make learning about diversity easier. MPAs were members of the student body who went through a rigorous application process in order to gain their position. After filling out the application, which included writing six essays and an interview, these students took on a great load. Their responsibilities included training for Resident Advisors and other residence hall staff at staff orientation, preparing reports required by the Hall Director and University Housing, assisting in conflict resolution between students, especially conflict involving students of color concerns, helping with some aspects of academic advising, assisting with personal advising in order to help students of color make academic and personal decisions, and advising, assisting and supporting the minority organization in their particular residence hall. These minority organizations were known as Multicultural Councils within the residence halls. There were eleven in total, residing in most residence halls, some serving more than one. These councils put on many events, such as the interracial dating event. " CAMEO (Couzens Active Minority Ethnic Organization) put on events last year, and the one on interracial dating was really well attended, " said sophomore political science and English major Ramya Raghavan. " This year West Quad hasn ' t really gotten started, but they are having executive board elections, " she added. What was interesting was how students felt the councils handled the issue of diversity. " I thought they were really interesting because I was raised to accept everyone and sometimes you forget that not everyone is. On the other hand, sometimes I felt like the only people who felt welcome were minorities, " said Raghavan. MPAs helped students throughout the year to be aware of and accept the University ' s diverse student body. Their presence in the residence halls was important to minority and non-minority students alike. Minority Peer Advisor Boatemaa Ntiri,a senior sociology major, discusses activities with her board in West Quad. MPAs played a large role on campus dealing with diversity among the student body. S.

Margolius photo I 264 Housing OF PUS by yvette granata The switch from dorm life to off-campus housing was not always a smooth transition for many students. While some adjusted quickly to the independence and responsibilities of paying bills and cleaning, others had more difficulty weaning themselves from the convenience of the cafeteria and having their rent paid for in conjunction with tuition. Many found ways around tasks such as cleaning, like Business School senior Brian Lafer who admitted, " I haven ' t done dishes once in the past three years. I just use paper plates. " In addition to finding innovative techniques to avoid responsibility, some had to deal with unexpected disasters and wayward roommates. Many students living off campus had the experience at one point or another of facing impending termination of electricity or water. " Sophomore year I lived in a house with eleven other guys. Getting everyone to pay their bills on time was impossible. At one point, I had to shower at my friend ' s dorm for two weeks because our power and water had been shut off, " said biochemistry senior Stephen Antonucci, recalling his less-fond memories of off campus housing. For others, safety and the occasional vermin were the main concern. " Something is living in my walls. I hear it running back and forth at night. It sounds really big too. . . I think it might be a raccoon or dog, " said Kinesiology sophomore Joe Leoni of his current apartment. Whether living with an unruly roommate or an unidentifiable animal, all students had to learn to adjust to the responsibility and possible horrors of off-campus housing. Disaster and uncertainty, however, were not the only changes from moving out of the dorms; students also gained freedom. Quiet hours and RA ' s were no longer a hindrance. Instead, many accepted the burden of rent and cleaning chores in exchange for the ability to stock their fridges with beer, make noise into all hours of the night, and of course, party, party, party. Paper plates, empty cups, and bottles litter the dining room and living room of a student home. Many students living on their own neglected the cleaning aspect of living in a house. L.

Many students took advantage of the short period of nice weather and studied outdoors until the cold winter months. A. Kaminsky photo Residence Halls 267 p I ZE by ema sadikovic Each month, hordes of students living in residence halls flocked to their mailboxes in anticipation of getting a letter from their elementary school pen-pal. Communicating with elementary students via letters was a unique opportunity granted only to about 1,000 residents of the University ' s residence halls. Diana Mohyi, a freshman majoring in microbiology, participated in the program " It was a nice volunteer opportunity to make little kids feel special " . K-Grams (Kid ' s Programs), an organization that coordinated this exchange, selected applicants in early September through an application process. " K-Grams is an organization that is in high demand for students. I never understood why until 1 received an opportunity to join. When I signed up, for the second time, I was accepted because I joined early in the semester " , said Karen Petros, a pre-law junior in LSA. Nine elementary schools in southeast Michigan participated, a significant increase from the original six that participated when K-Grams was founded in 1998. K-Grams took numerous precautions with letters in order to ensure the success ot the program; each letter was carefully read by a trained coordinator called a " Swing Kid " . Last names were never used and addresses were never exchanged for safety concerns. K-Grams often hosted letter writing pizza parties or ice-cream socials for college pen-pals to create a sense of community within residence halls. " K- Grams is such a wonderful way to connect with other students on campus, while helping to become involved and reach out to future generations of leaders, " Petros added. In addition to writing letters, college pen-pals had numerous opportunities to visit elementary schools and meet their elementary school buddy. K-Grams organized two programs: BookMARK, a weekly mentoring program; and Kids-Fair, a one-day event, where college pen-pals participated in various education activities with their elementary school buddies. At Kids-Fair, elementary school students received an official K-Grams diploma and a picture of their college buddy. The enthusiasm that the K-Grams participants exuded was a definite indication that the program would continue to grow for many years to come. According to Petros, " Joining K-Grams is one of the best things that has ever happened to me! " Junior nursing major Becky Robison draws dinosaur murals with two girls at one of the participating K- Grams elementary schools through the BookMARK program. The success of BookMARK showed the importance many students put on working with children in the local community. L.

" Sinche! 272 Housing RESID feMI HALL 7 by emily demarco In a university with over 32,000 students, it was difficult at times to make it feel like home. To many freshmen, especially, it almost seemed as though very little could make this campus seem small. However, the Resident Advisors (RAs) in the dorms had things figured out. Mosher Jordan RA Allison Gutwillig, junior music, anthropology, and zoology major, expressed, " You really want the people living in your place to be happy because if your residents are miserable, you will be miserable. If you had a good living experience your freshman or sophomore year, you want to pass it on and show the incoming residents a great time too. " From taking trips to making t-shirts, each dorm had a different way to encourage community bonding between hall- mates. Sophomore psychology major and West Quad resident Michelle Sanchez participated in weekly hall dinners. " We all met in the hall and walk down to the cafeteria together and had dinner every Tuesday. It was great because we got to talk to the people in the hall that we might not otherwise been able to talk to, " Sanchez explained. Holding fun activities beyond the RA programs helped to bring the hall together on a whole new level. Some halls threw sleepovers complete with piles of junk food and soda pop. Others planned and participated in activities outside of the dorm, in one case holding a barn dance. " Just last week I had a representative from Mary Kay cosmetics come in and show us their latest products, " Kameron Brackins, junior English Language and Literature major and RA for South Quad, mentioned. Another way the University built community in the halls was to have Michigan Learning Communities (MLC) on specific floors in several dorms. This year, the University had seven residential communities, three non-residential communities, and two LSA residential communities. Megan Smith, freshman political science and pre-med major, was part of the Residential College in East Quad. " My hall is very tight and intense. We get together and play dorm games like Reptar and Tag, and we go out together. None of it is forced; we just have a great group of kids that I love to pieces, " she commented. Making a big university feel small was an important part of making college a success and smoothing out the transition for incoming freshman and others. With the best of both worlds, the University made dorm life a better experience. Freshmen LSA student Elizabeth Petruska and Kaitlin Schneider, engineering major, spend time together knitting in their Markley dorm room. Residential hall bonding allowed residents easier adjustment and comfort at the University. L.

Pavle photo Residence Halls 275 H U US by jacquelyn zacny Incoming freshmen had a lot to look forward to for their first year at the University. However, there were many serious issues that students were likely to encounter that they may not have been aware of. Some of these included love, sex and sexuality, diversity, and substance abuse. The Residence Hall Repertory Theater troupe (ResRep) attempted to address some of these issues during freshmen orientation. Senior psychology major and ResRep member, Tiffany Ginyard-Potts, explained part of the process, " We created skits that had common themes about issues that college students could relate to or were [otherwise] afraid to discuss. Our rehearsals began with a fun warm up and then w e worked on our material for the show, writing skits, adding or changing something in them, or just going over it as a whole. " After practice, it was show time! ResRep portrayed controversial issues and possible conflicts in an inventive way and had been doing so since 1986. The group combined music, poetry, monologues, slapstick humor, and a few serious skits to get their messages across. " I truly believe that comedy speaks to our generation in the most powerful way, " said senior Matt George, third-year assistant director of the troupe. Freshman Janelle O ' Brien saw the show at Orientation and she commented, " [ResRep] was cool! If you just sat the kids down in another lecture they would have been bored. It was something different. " Freshman Natalie Scott, who also saw the show at summer orientation, agreed with O ' Brien ' s sentiments. " I think they did a good job of getting their point across in an interesting way. I appreciated the fact that they did skits as opposed to getting up there and talking at us. " However, Scott went on to explain that while ResRep may have had good intentions to help students with problems, it might not have been enough. One of the issues ResRep focused on was underage drinking and Scott explained, " For what they had to say they did a good job saying it, but if someone went in with the mind set that they were going to party it wasn ' t going to change their minds. " In addition to performing at freshmen orientation, ResRep performed for the Affirmative Action Office, University Housing Annual Staff Kickoff, Counseling Services, Health Services, School of Nursing, Psychology classes, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Affairs, and the Sexual Assault Prevention and Awareness Center. In their seventeenth year, ResRep provided an educational and entertaining show for any who saw the shows. Members of the ResRep Comedy Troupe rehearse their lines for an upcoming performance. ResRep aimed to educate students on subjects like love and diversity in a fun and humorous way. J. Neff photo 276 Housing south quadrangle 3rd Taylor Front Row: Daniel Ash, Jamie Macleod.

J. Neff photo 280 Housing IX HE NG by ema sadikovic Many students needed supplemental income to alleviate the financial burden of attending the most expensive public university in the nation and the paltry handouts of some parents just were not enough. Others chose to work to acquaint themselves with the employment field or to meet new people. Aparnaa Bhatt, a political science and philosophy sophomore, affirmed, " Jobs enable one to learn responsibility and time management. I decided to take up a job so I could learn a few of the ' real world ' skills. Then again there is this awesome new SUZU in the market " . One of the more convenient ways to obtain extra cash was to work in a residence hall. Jobs within residence halls were not solely reserved for work-study students. According to Bhatt, " Employment in dorms is awesome. You don ' t have to rush anywhere in the bitter cold. It also provides a platform for people who have never had a job experience. " Residence halls offered a plethora of employment opportunities whose pay was competitive to the jobs outside the University and work schedules were designed to accommodate the students ' hefty academic loads. The starting pay ranged from $7.20 to $8.30 with an opportunity to earn even more with additional bonuses. Cafeterias employed a vast number of students ranging from dish-washers to card-swipers while the front desks usually employed 5-10 students depending on dorm size. Helen Kasprzyk, a mechanical engineering junior, enjoyed working at the front desk of Stockwell Residence Hall, " The job helped me grow as a person as opposed to how I was before and I wanted the extra money. " Even some of the students that did not live in a residence hall chose to obtain employment in a residence hall due to decent pay and friendly atmosphere. In addition to finding a job, students made friends who also worked in the residence halls. Holly Lynn Barocio. junior political science major, serves lunch in Betsey Barbour Residence Hall. Many students sought residential hall employment because of its close proximity and good pay. .

These apartments were located on campus only two blocks away from the Diag. J. Werner photo Residence Halls 283 H by robert fowler Over two-thirds of students lived in off-campus housing each year, making it difficult to sign a good lease and sometimes causing tense living situations. Frequent problems included tenant relations, roommate relations, paying bills, maintenance, and security. Fortunately, the University offered a Conflict Resolution Program specifically designed for off-campus housing. The program began in 1965 and now boasted over 500 registered landlord participants. If a landlord was registered, it meant that they use the University ' s Lease Agreement and had essentially agreed to cooperate with the conflict resolution program. The purpose of the program was to help parties resolve disputes by offering impartial information, advice and intervention. Off-Campus Housing Advisor and Mediator Melissa Goldstein acknowledged other advantages. " Living with roommates and landlords is hard. Mediation helps in that a tenant will not go directly to court against a student, " Goldstein said. When an initial conflict took place, the student or landlord was to contact the Conflict Resolution Office. A mediator talked with the student and referred to them to various legal services. Before any further steps, the program preferred students to work out problems themselves. If that failed, then they scheduled a formal mediation session. This required all parties involved in the dispute to meet face-to-face with an intermediary present. " When they sit down and look at each other, it ' s always a bit different then, " Goldstein said. Mediators ' duties included helping to generate movement towards a solution and enforcing the no interrupting, no fighting policy. Goldstein also stressed the fact that the conflict resolution program was neutral in all disputes. " We also co-mediate with the student mediation services to balance it out. We try to get people similar to those involved in the conflicts, " Goldstein said. Junior economics major and President of the Student Mediation Services, Kim Garelic also saw the importance of providing multiple perspectives for people involved in a mediation session. Garelic explained that two student mediators were present for each session. " The work we do is effective and students leave better off than when they came in, " Garelic said. " The most common problems we help with include students learning to live with each other and dealing with each others ' personalities. " At the end of the year, Garelic also dealt frequently with students ' monetary subletting issues. Student run and student trained, the Student Mediation Service was both free and confidential. Through all these means and procedures, the Conflict Resolution Program helped provide the University with a more student- friendly atmosphere. The Conflict Resolution Office, located conveniently in the basement of South Quad, opens its doors to any off-campus housing problems. Students utilized their services to avoid larger problems with landlords and roommates.

Tedjasukmana photo Residence Halls 287 Amidst the barron shelves of the old East Quadrangle library, a resident utilizes the new space in the recently emptied room as a quiet study lounge.AII but two of the residence hall libraries were shut down during the year due to the cost of their up-keep. Y. Granata photo 288 Housing by ema sadikovic The beginning of the year brought shock to some students returning to live within the University housing system - all but two residence hall libraries were closed. The libraries previously offered a wide spectrum of entertainment mediums such as books, board games, magazines, DVDs, and CDs. Yet, the University was impelled to close the facilities for a year with the exception of the Bursley and East Quad Residence Halls ' libraries in order to implement a few drastic changes in the library system. According to Mr. David Pimentel, Director of Residence Hall Libraries, students in resident halls could expect a new, revitalized library system very soon; " The Residence Hall Libraries program is in a transitional state this year while a new academic services initiative is being phased in. Targeted for initial phase-in operation in fall 2004, the Community Learning Centers program will partner Housing with other campus units to deliver support for undergraduate research skills, multi-literacy aptitude, and technology use. We think that this robust combination will help to improve and transform the learning environment in residence halls, as well as support students ' success throughout their tenure at the University. " Locations of former residence hall libraries were converted into study lounges where the students could utilize the vast space from 7:30 am to 2:30 am. Most materials were removed from the libraries in order to prevent theft. Yet most residence halls kept the books that were part of the libraries for the students to read or browse through in the remaining study space. The reaction to the closure was mixed. Even with the rumor of permanent closure of residence hall libraries present, some students remained apathetic to the closures. Amy Weller, a sophomore LSA student, was indifferent to the closure of the library in her residence hall; " I thought it was a cute library, but when I was there I never saw anyone check anything out. We didn ' t really need it. Now we are saving money and have space to study. " On the other hand, Delphine Cornet said, " The movie section was definitely something that I used. We pay so much money for a room in a residence hall; I don ' t see why some of our money wouldn ' t go towards a library. [The University] increased room and board rates by so much and nothing has changed. " Residence Hall Libraries 289 martha cook Seniors Krysta Bartnick. Erin Birkam. Michelle Blaszczack, Autumn Brown.

Many University students decorated for the holiday season which gave the campus a cozy feeling of community. J. Neff photo Residence Halls 291 RESI D SOR by ema sadikovic At the onset of the 2003-2004 school year, the University ' s Housing Department held several presentations to introduce the selection process for those interested in obtaining positions in the area of residence education. There were several positions that the students could apply for, the most coveted of which was Resident Advisor. The rewards were copious for those selected as Resident Advisor and the pecuniary as well as additional aspects of the position were what attracted more than 400 students to apply. Jackie Fu, a junior majoring in political science communications, was prompted to apply by her former Resident Advisor; " Resident Advisors are people who like giving. My RA told me that 1 would be a good RA. Now that I am a Resident Advisor, I don ' t see myself as a cop or as a parent. 1 am like the captain of a team. I am on their side, but I am also out there to watch them. " The compensation included free room and board, use of a refrigerator, free basic cable, and use of a Macintosh computer. The application process which consisted of several tiers began in late October. Senior communications major Joanna Gau was pleased with the application procedures; " In my opinion, the application process was made to be as fair as possible. They (University Housing) recently revamped it and I think that the newer process benefits both students and the residence education staff. " The process required all applicants to submit five essay responses emphasizing their qualities, including a resume and a letter of recommendation. There was an additional personal application which was conducted over the internet and located on the University Housing Department ' s main webpage. After the essays were reviewed, a process that normally took two weeks, most applicants were asked for an interview where they were asked to expand on their essay responses and illustrate their desire for the position. Subsequently, the applicant pool was narrowed down in early December and the candidates with the strongest qualifications were called back for a second round interview, located on the area of camps they wished to work, whether it be North Campus, the Hill, or Central Campus. The second round interview was conducted by a two person team usually consisting of a Residence Hall Director and an Assistant Hall Director or current Resident Advisor. The second round interview focused on different case scenarios that could arise in residence halls. The final cut for Resident Advisor was revealed in mid- January in a letter obtained from the Student Activities Building. If accepted, students were required to take a psychology course which focused on psychology in a community setting. They also attended one weekend workshop, and were required to move in to their residence hall two weeks earlier than their residents in order to complete a final orientation and decorate their hall to make it a warm atmosphere for students on move-in day. Duties that Resident Advisors held once chosen included making rounds throughout the building at least once a month, staying in one night of a weekend each month, staying on campus for one of our school breaks (excluding winter break), and attending a certain amount of residence hall activities a month. At the end of the year, Resident Advisors who wished to keep the position had to re-apply to remain a Resident Advisor the next yer. 292 Housing Resident Advisor applicant and sophomore communications and English major Katrina Deutsch picks up her final letter of notice from receptionist Marilyn Somoza in the Student Activities Building.

Proux photo Residence Halls 295 by katrina deutsch After living in the residence halls, most students were more than excited to begin their search for off-campus housing. However, many students quickly learned that finding a place to live was much harder than expected. For first year students, starting the housing search in November posed problems. After only two and a half months at school, freshmen had to find people that they were close enough to sign a lease together for the following year. For some the choice seemed obvious yet they later dreaded the idea of living with their future housemates. For others it became an opportunity to become closer with people and create everlasting friendships. Some friendships that carried over from high school were hurt during the process. " My friend and I decided we wanted to live in an apartment together next year. It started out well, but in the end there was too much conflict and we ended up not talking. We are fine now, but we are definitely not living together next year, " said freshman psychology student Natalie Goldstein. For second year students who had already lived off campus, or who had chosen to stay in the residence halls for another year, house hunting was a different experience. With friends in hand, they were more interested in the perfect location, with the perfect price to match. As second year nursing student Julia Carl said, " Housing in Ann Arbor seems relatively expensive to me, but with a little hunting, we found a great place. The trick is to start early. " Carl and her friends started their search in November. Because two of the housemates were nursing students and the rest were in LSA, finding a house in between the two campuses was a top priority. Students also discovered that even if the place they chose to live in was their ideal match, the landlord could change it in to an extremely negative experience. Some landlords promised furniture that never came, others promised twenty-four hour handyman service in the case of minor emergencies. Though many landlords stuck to their promise, other students were left struggling to find mattresses and figure out how to get the electricity back on. In the end, no matter how far from campus they were, and how much they were paying per month, all students living off campus had the new feeling of responsibility that came with living off campus and " on their 722 Packard, located two doors down from Bell ' s Pizza on State Street, offers a great location for six University students. Houses and apartments located near major streets such as State were attractive for many students who were willing to pay a little more in rent for the accommodating location. .

Tedjastikmana photo House Hunting 297 GREEK 298 Ca-ek Life many students overwhelmed by the immense size of the University, the Greek system offered a means of finding and defining a smaller community and a sense of belonging on campus. Thousands of students, both men and women, signed up to participate in Rush in the hopes of joining an organization dedicated to tradition, service, leadership, and friendship. Each sorority and fraternity seemed to embody a certain personality that made the . diversity of the members in the Greek community truly dynamic. Philanthropic events, date parties, initiations, and other annual events turned acquaintances into friends. When serious issues confronted the status of Greek life on campus, members recognized the value of these bonds and gained an even deeper understanding of the importance of the Greek community. u e . . . oome . . to fefc a twvwievmxxl , _ _ ' - Interfraternlty Council Constitution - Rho Omega Emily McMoms excitedly discusses different sorority houses with potential pledges.

While waiting on the corner of South University and State Street, sisters of Delta Gamma anxiously await the arrival of their new pledges on Bid Day in their decorated car. Bid Day gave old and new members alike the chance to meet for the first time while celebrating on campus with the other members of the greek system. J. Neff photo b Tk m Sa 300 Greek Life by nicole mammo In order to ease their transition into college life at the University, man y entering freshmen rushed a fraternity or sorority during the first semester. Rushing was a way to get to know other members of the freshman class and meet upperclassmen. Even if one did not decide to join a Greek organization, many friendships blossomed during this time. According to some members of the Greek system, the rush process for fraternities was a little different this year. The rush chair for Delta Kappa Epsilon, Mike Warren, stated " This year ' s rush contributed to a lessening interest in the Greek system. " Due to the hazing incident with Sigma Chi fraternity, many young men became afraid or disinterested because they did not want to join an organization based on activities that could possibly endanger them. Also, this year continued a trend of bigger houses getting more pledges and smaller houses getting fewer pledges. It was a cycle in a sense, because as Warren also pointed out, " The more brothers you have, the more pledges you can get, by far. " Due to all of these circumstances, many fraternity houses worked harder to get pledges and many of the people who did pledge went to the larger houses because they knew more about them. These reasons led some people to believe that the concept of sorority rush was better. If guys rushing for fraternities were forced to look at all of the houses, they could make a more educated decision about which house they would enjoy. Girls did not necessarily have this problem, because they had to visit every sorority house during the rush process. This process was comprised of four sets of parties: Mixers, Second Sets, Third Sets, and Preference Parties. Mixers allowed girls to get a look at each chapter and develop an opinion about the sorority system in general. At this set, each girl visited every house, staying for a short time and speaking to many girls at each party. During Second Sets and Third Sets, girls were able to stay at each house for a longer period of time and to speak more closely with girls and to really get to know about each individual sorority through skits, costumes, and decorations. Things like the live-in policy, the philanthropies, and the goals of each sorority were often topics of discussion. " Rush was an amazingly long and hectic process, but for the people I ' ve met and the fun times I ' ve shared, I ' d do it all over again. There is no way I would have found such an awesome house that fits me perfectly if it weren ' t for Rush, " said LSA freshman Melissa Talaske.

These myths travel around the Greek and non-Greek community faster than you could say, " Go Blue! " at a football game. However, Delta Gamma dispelled all stereotypes and showed the community what sororities were really about. Delta Gamma (DG) had an overwhelming number of girls involved in high positions and unique activities around campus. DG had skaters, dancers, leaders, collaborators, and captains spread about in every area the University had to offer. Jacqueline London, sophomore political science and Spanish major, expressed, " It ' s great to have your friends here to support you. It ' s kind of your home away from home. We are very encouraging for girls to go out and participate in other activities around campus. " Also, with an executive board of nine members in the house, it gave members an opportunity to gain leadership and organizational skills. House Director Mary Higgins commented, " ! really respect [the girls] a lot. I think they give 1 10 percent. " DGs were involved in the community around campus and nationally. DG ' s national philanthropy, Service for Sight, supported visually impaired citizens. They held their annual Anchor Splash and Anchor Slam in order to raise money for this organization. " My goal now is to search out the rest of the [community] and see what there is out there, " Lauren Holeer, junior LSA major, noted. The sorority did not miss a chance to get involved in the community around the University as they actively participated in the-annual Greek Week events. Overall, DG had a successful year and created bonds that would last forever. " It ' s really nice to always have someone to go out with and always have someone to have a good time with, " concluded junior biopsychology major Colleen Russell. fO (0 ( It ' s great to have your friends here to support you.

Phi Gamma Delta, otherwise know as Fiji, made it a point to show their excellent qualities to the community and the campus. John Coury, a brother and sophomore pre-business major, reflected, " We restarted last year and we started with 23 guys and now we are on the verge of having 40 brothers with another pledge class of about 20. So we are growing pretty fast. " Fiji participated in many events throughout the year, including their Phi Gam Slam three-on-three basketball tournament, inter-Greek community events, and the annual Greek Week festivities. Fiji focused their recruitment efforts on finding more guys that held up to the standards the house had set previously. " We look for gentlemen, athletes, scholars, just all around good guys. We believe in chivalry. A lot of people think its dead, but its not, " junior biology major, Steve Davis, commented. With these qualities, Fiji had accomplished many goals they set for the house this year. Davis continued, " One of the goals that all of us as a fraternity strive for is building it back to the height that Fiji was in the early 90s. I think right now with the guys we have, we will exceed expectations. We have a lot going for us. " Outside of the house, the guys of Fiji were involved all around campus. Andrew Paolino, sophomore computer science major, explained, " It s a requirement that everyone be involved in at least one inter-campus activity outside of Fiji. I ' m the president of one of the martial arts clubs on campus. We ' re involved in every sport on campus. We have had men in the Glee Club, K-Grams, Dance Marathon, all kinds of stuff.

The MGC served to promote multiculturalism awareness, and to foster unity among Multicultural Greek organizations. " MGC is a representative networking body for fraternities and sororities that strives to share their cultures, enthusiasm, and unique goals, " said Jaya Soni, the president of MGC. Members included a total of five fraternities and six sororities comprised of Latino-, South Asian-, Asian-, and Asian-American-interest groups, as well as one sorority that was entirely multicultural. The National Panhellenic Council served as the umbrella organization for historically African American fraternities and sororities. Aside from spreading awareness and creating unity, the MGC also acted as a forum for communication between groups, a support to any and all new multicultural Greeks, an advocate for the communities represented. Finally, the Council worked to improve relations between MGC organizations and the larger Greek community, and the climate between Greeks. There were several reasons why some students chose to join MGC fraternities and sororities. Some joined the sororities because it was a place where they could take part in efforts to provide a stronger voice for minority women. Others felt that it would help them to remember their roots. Many also felt that these organizations, usually smaller than the fraternities and sororities that were part of the Panhellenic Council or the Interfraternity Council, were easier to fit into and build close bonds with brothers or sisters. " By working together, MGC Greeks find support and learn from an array of communities that celebrate U of Ms diversity, " said Soni.

The pecuniary donations were mostly allocated to Camp Heartland, a haven for children afflicted with HIV and AIDS, but a portion of the funds went to two other charities that the Greek Week committee selected. This year was momentous because members of the Multicultural Greek Community were included in the events along with the past participants the Interfraternity Council and Panhellenic houses. This philanthropic event was meticulously planned for months, beginning in late October by a committee of 35 members who were split up into several teams to ensure efficiency and overall coordination. David Levy, a member of the Public Relations Team and a fifth-year LSA senior, enjoyed the planning process despite the demand of long hours; " This is my second year on the committee and I love it. Basically we meet every week from October until the end of Greek Week in early April. " Peter Moes, a senior in the Engineering School and a fellow committee member, agreed; " The greatest part about Greek Week Steering Committee is getting to know everyone and working as a team to create a philanthropic and fun event for the entire Greek Community " . The events coordinated by the Greek Week committee coalesced work and pleasure, all for a good cause. Some of the most notable events were Diag Day, Greek Olympics, Mr. Greek Week, and everyone ' s favorite-Sing and Variety Show.

The fraternity, established nationally in 1901, has had a chapter represented in Ann Arbor since 1912. In 1994 the organization left campus, only to return three years later. In 2003 Sigma Phi Epsilon was the largest fraternity in the United States due to its sizeable membership of 240 national chapters. Sig Ep at the University encompassed 70 diverse individuals whose academic interests ranged from Architecture to Industrial and Operations Engineering. The selection process was primarily based on excellence in the following facets: academics, athletics, leadership and character. Sig Ep boasted a number of accolades that affirmed the success of their selection process. Sig Ep was the reigning Intramural champion as well as the Interfraternity Council Fraternity of the Year two years in a row. The brothers ' dedication to community service was also recognized.To ensure success at the University, the fraternity had eight permanent committees. The committees covered specific areas such as finance or recruitment. Andrew Vandekerckhove, a junior in the business school, stated " I held many personal beliefs that I felt contradicted with what fraternities stood for, in regards to the stereotypical fraternity life. I was here to succeed personally and academically, to position myself for success in the future, and to establish many long-lasting relationships. As it turned out, Sigma Phi Epsilon offered me all of these opportunities and more.

Their goals focused on campus involvement, community service, athletics, and of course, brotherhood. Unwilling to repeat past mistakes, the brothers firmly pledged a commitment to be a non-hazing organization. Their motto consisted of the ideals of SLAG (Scholars Leaders Athletes Gentlemen) and they kept this in mind in order to work together successfully. As a testament to this motto, the brothers collectively achieved a house GPA of a 3.29. The brothers referred to the time preceding their initiation as preparation time, instead of as initiation. They did so because they felt that, " It is a time of learning what it ' s like to be a full member of Pi Kappa Alpha, so when initiation time does come, the new members can step in and take full responsibility. " Due to this new mentality, Pi Kappa Alpha succeeded at being named Most Outstanding Fraternity Chapter of the Year for three years in a row and obtained the Robert Adger Smythe award. This award was the most prestigious award from their International Headquarters. The brothers of Pi Kappa Alpha were also devoted to philanthropic work. During 2002-2003, together they logged over 6000 community service hours. On November 6th, they raised over $3,000 for the Make-a-Wish Foundation through their sponsorship of " Pike Comedy Night. " Also, preceding the 100 th battle of Michigan vs. Ohio State, the brothers completed the first annual " Pike Football Run, " where 60 brothers ran a combined 1 87 miles over a span of 27 hours, from Columbus to Ann Arbor. The event raised over $2,000 for charity. " Pi Kappa Alpha will set the standard of integrity, intellect, and achievement for our members, host institutions, and the communities in which we live.

Neff photo 314 Greek Life 1 by nicole mammo Cold air, overcast skies, and an aura of gloom did not diminish spirits on October 18. People were excited not only for the Homecoming game against Illinois, but for the main event that was taking place outside of Sigma Alpha Epsilon-the infamous Mudbowl game. This popular event was consistently a favorite of many students on campus for various reasons. According to SAE senior David Burciaga, " It was a true battle of brit and brawn... the NFL ' s got nothing on Mudbowl. " For the 70 year, SAE sponsor ed their biggest philanthropic event-a football game played in a pit of mud with the intent to raise money for Mott ' s Children ' s Hospital. A lot of preparation went into this event, as getting sponsors was a time consuming process; for the teams involved, practice was also essential. This year, seven sororities and ten fraternities participated in the event, with two teams battling it out at the end for the ultimate title. Last year, SAE defeated Sigma Nu and Delta Gamma defeated Delta Delta Delta. This year, SAE defeated Zeta BetaTau, while there was a surprising tie between Tri Delt and Kappa Alpha Theta. Many people complained that the field emitted a foul odor, but according to Erin McKeever of Tri Delt, this was not important. " During the heat of the game, you really don ' t think about the smell. " Although it was disappointing that there was no clear winner of the girls ' tournament, the event had a turnout of nearly 2,000 people and raised large sums for the hospital. In order to prepare for the event, 9,000 gallons of water were poured into the field, which was tilled by pledges of SAE the night before. Senior Joe Kudia coached the girls of Tri Delt, and in discussion of his duties summed up the entire event: " It ' s like sorority girls in mud... How can anyone pass up that job? " The event received national coverage, named in the Top Ten Homecoming Events in the Country by Sports Illustrated, and representatives from MTV covered it as well. It was a true battle of brit and brawn... the NFL ' s got nothing on Mudbowl. Mudbowl 315 Front Row: Meredith Brooks. Lauren Dosik, JulieDennis- Litinger, Lindsay Goldstein, Shelly Weiss.

Questions were arising within the Greek System this past fall when the University put forth a new plan, which included offered amendments to the current hazing, living, and rush policies. The new plan was seen by the Greek System to compromise its existence on campus. Many Greek members were troubled about delayed recruitment, maintaining that it should be the students ' choice whether or not to rush. They also mentioned that many students arrive on campus in the fall and wish to join new organizations, and therefore should not be denied the opportunity to become involved in Greek Life. Deferred recruitment seemed to be the biggest concern for the women and advisors of the sororities on campus. Many were worried that it would deter incoming girls from rushing because of the University ' s early lease signing for the subsequent housing year. Thus, girls would live in their junior years, which presented another concern as many students preferred to study abroad that year. For fraternities, the biggest apprehension from the new proposals was the requirement of a live in chapter advisor. Fraternities saw the live in advisor as a setback since their budget did not include money to pay for live-in advisors. Questions arose as to why the University could exercise authority and designate such restrictions on a single organization. According to Edward Willis, Dean of Students, and E. Royster Harper, Vice President of Student Affairs, one of the biggest concerns was the risky behaviors that occurred. " All sororities and fraternities do not haze, unfortunately there are some that do, " Willis said. " Given my job, I recognize students as students first, then as members of organizations. Hazing should not be a part of any organization. " Many greeks did not have a problem with improving and specifying University hazing policies. President of the Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity, C.J. Johnson, cha llenged the university ' s current policy when he said that many people had different perceptions of what it meant to. He also raised an issue, which created much frustration; why should the Greeks be singled out? " We [the greek system] need to strengthen our policy and make sure it applies to everyone, " Johnson said. " Greeks will support a stronger hazing policy, but hazing occurs everywhere, in sports, and multicultural fraternities too. As a result of the proposed plan, the Panhellenic Association and Interfraternity Council made petitions for students at the University to sign opposing the changes and also set up various meetings with University Officials, specifically Vice President E. Royster Harper to voice their concerns. As the issue carried into the second semester of the 2003-2004 school year, there did not appear to be a set consensus on the plan. " I want a Greek Community, but I want a strong, strong, strong Greek community; a vibrant, healthy, and the very best Greek Community, " said Harper. to u CD I want a Greek Community, but I want a strong, strong, strong Greek community; a vibrant, healthy, and the very best Greek Community. 1 Greek System Plans 319 Kristin O ' Mara, Mo Cebula, Kellie Hoy, Ashley Keating, and Angela Llanes take time out from a football game to smile for a picture.

The group of young women was comprised of a very unique collection of individuals with varying majors, backgrounds, and interests. There were many accomplishments made by the sorority as a whole. Alpha Phi had a successful Rush, accepting 41 new women into their sisterhood. They also spent a lot of time and effort raising money for their various philanthropies. The Sexual Assault Prevention and Awareness Center (SAPAC) was one such philanthropy that the sorority raised money for through their 5K Walk Run, which took place on October 19. There were also many individual accomplishments that the sorority celebrated. Angela Galardi was named the President of the Michigan Student Assembly while Jane Friend, Lauren O ' Bryan, Allie Clans, and Carmen Callus also held LSA Student Government positions. Mary Beth Hojonowski was named one of the Student Coordinators for the University Mentorship Program and for the third consecutive year, the Michiganensian Yearbook named an Alpha Phi as the Editor-in-Chief, Melissa Mariola.TheTheta Chapter was also honored to discover that Susan Zabriskie, aTheta Chapter alumna, was named to the very prestigious position of Alpha Phi International ' s new Executive Director. The Theta Chapter had the pleasure of her presence during the Rush process and throughout the pledging of their new members. Sisterhood events were also a large part of the sorority ' s focus during the year. They supported each other by attending theatre and dance performances as well as varsity sporting events as a group to support their sisters ' great accomplishments. Senior Kate Reilly, studying pre-law, said, " The girls that I have met in this house have really impacted my life.

T Y d X ' " V Li by beth Hamburg Although the Greek system was an integral part of University life whether or not a student chose to participate in it directly, less known were the active organizations made to recognize outstanding members of the Greek community and to regulate activities and protocol within the Greek society. These organizations brought students from different houses together, further enriching the Greek environment. Gamma Sigma Alpha was a national academic honor society that recognized those Greek members from both fraternities and sororities who upheld a cumulative grade point average of 3.7 and above. It was founded at the University of Southern California in 1989 to recognize those students who achieved academic excellence. Its goal was to promote active participation in the Greek system while at the same time maintaining high standards of education. Another representative organization which honored those who excelled in academics and greek life was Order of Omega. " Order of Omega is a selective group of hard-working students who are members of the Greek community who have good grades and leadership experience both in and out of their respective chapters, " said Ryan Baril, co-president of Order of Omega. Twice a year juniors and seniors with a cumulative GPA of 3.3 or above were able to apply for acceptance into the organization. We can generally accept less than three percent of the Greek population. It ' s a great way for upperclassmen to be recognized for hard work and leadership, " added Baril. The Hazing Task Force also was comprised of members of the Greek system. This group was formed and was governed by Greek students. It was a group that took an active part in the investigation of any possible hazing incidents in an effort to ensure the safety of the Greek community. They helped to better the Greek system through the education of students about hazing, focusing mainly on incident prevention.

A lot of girls aren ' t looking for diversity when they join a sorority. I feel like all of us are very different, " Liz Chang, LSA junior, noted. One of the most important activities for the house was their philanthropy project that supported people with Diabetes. In order to raise money for this, the sisters held their annual Alpha Gam Pie Slam and cleaned up Yost Arena. Amy Lees, sophomore music major, commented, " ! think it s just a lot of fun and obviously it ' s for a good cause too. " Inside the house, enjoyed each other ' s company. Jessica Badt, senior political science and women studies major, explained, " I came back to this house only and got to know the alums that were rushing girls and the girls that were rushing with me and absolutely fell in love with it. This is the place for me. " Every one in the house supported everyone else and it was a nice blend of personalities. Many girls also got involved in many other activities around campus. Chang was involved in the affirmative action debate, which was unique to a Panhellenic member. " My freshman year I formed an Asian American group called Asian Americans for Altering Affirmative Action. Time Magazine actually interviewed me last March, " Chang remarked. AGD had a women ' s hockey player for the Wolverines and even a sister who was a member of the Equestrian Team. Rebecca Witherell, freshman pre-med, explained, " We have an understanding here that being in other things besides the sorority helps build other aspects of your character that you may not be getting here.

This was what sororities found in a house mom. House moms were an integral part of sorority life. In fact, every sorority on campus had one as well as one fraternity, Alpha Epsilon Pi. Alexa Anderson, president of Alpha Delta Pi sorority said, " Our house mom basically makes sure we have a welcoming environment and that we feel like we ' re at home. She runs the day-to-day operations of the house, including working with maintenance staff, our cleaning staff and cook staff. If we ever need anything she is always ready to help. " House moms enjoyed being a part of so many girls ' lives and helping them out with their social functions. It ' s as if they were living with fifty " daughters " and had to help each of them manage their lives to a certain extent. This was the part of the appeal of the position. Shelley Winters, house mom for Sigma Delta Tau, explained why she took the job, " I find it interesting getting to know each new group of women and fascinating to talk to the former members who come back to visit and to reminisce. " Another reason for getting into the business of being a house mom was the fact that, " everyday is different. I like that it ' s constant problem solving, " said Draeleen Gabalac, house mom of Gamma Phi Beta. To describe the type of work a house mom did, Bobbi Heilveil, house mom of Delta Phi Epsilon, explained, " When friends who haven ' t had a Greek experience ask me to describe what I do, I tell them ' I ' m an inn keeper with long term guests. ' " House moms were in charge of hiring and firing all staff as well as many other tasks such as making and enforcing budgets, purchasing food, supplies and equipment, maintaining the house and having repairs done in a timely manner. At the same time as taking care of all these activities, house moms were residents of the sororities they took care of. This allowed them to play a part in the girls ' busy lives. Obviously, house moms were very important to sororities and Greek life. They were a tradition that was as old as Greek life itself, and the University of Michigan ' s Greek community was one of the first to incorporate communal living. Whether house moms lived in or spent part of their time at their respective fraternity or sorority, they were part of the living tradition. o is ( (.

Delta Upsilon fraternity, located at 1331 Hill Street, was composed of thirty-five brothers from a range of diverse backgrounds. Their fields of study were extremely varied as well, with majors ranging from film and video studies to engineering. Academics were imperative to the brothers, as they held the fourth highest fraternity GPA on campus. Although they were involved in many social aspects of fraternity life, brothers of Delta Upsilon prided themselves on their involvement in philanthropic events. These included working with the local Boys and Girls Club, a food drive for the homeless, and a field goal contest that raised money for Breast Cancer Awareness. An important ideal that the brothers held was the fact that they did not participate in secrecy or hazing events. " Our brotherhood takes great pride in Delta Upsilon, and doesn ' t hold anything back from those outside of the fraternity. Parents, friends, and faculty are always welcomed to attend our ceremonies and other events, " commented Tommy Leonard. Involvement in IM sports was a key factor, as well. This past fall, Delta Upsilon was the champion of the three-on-three basketball tournament and runner up in flag football. " Delta Upsilon has been a key success factor in my college life. I have been given opportunities to represent our chapter at international leadership institutes over the past two summers, " acknowledged brother Paul Mestermaker.

Delta Phi Epsilon (DPhiE) was the only sorority to be established at a professional school and it was the first non-sectarian social sorority. At its inception, five able women established the motto " Esse Quam Videri " which stands for " to be rather than to seem to be " in Latin. To the sisters of DPhiE, March 17 was known as the Founder ' s Day which recognizes those five women who instituted the sisterly bond and the standards of justice, love, and sisterhood. The University chapter, headed by sophomore political science major and President of DPhiE Rebecca Murow, maintained the goals set by the founding sisters, " We have sisterhood activities such as big lil sis night, Oscars parties, Sex and City parties, in both of these we order ice cream, or some type of food, and get together and hang out. I joined DPhiE because I liked every girl that I met there during Rush my freshman year. I felt at home every time I walked in, and the girls made an effort to smile and say hi to me, " said Julie Horowitz, junior English and History major. The friendliness and thoughtfulness of the sisters attracted many new members. " When walking into the DPhiE house, I immediately knew that I would fit in because of the feeling of warmth and comfort that I received, " pointed out Lindsey Goldberg, the New Member Educator and an LSA sophomore. The sisters also worked hard to promote many philanthropic causes including Cystic Fibrosis, Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders, and Delta Phi Epsilon Education Foundation. They did this through sponsoring various fund-raisers such as their annual pancake breakfast and bowl-a thon. In addition to the fund-raisers, the girls performed community service at local charitable establishments; " We have participated in various community service activities this year such as Adopt-a-Family for the holidays and cooking and serving food at the Ronald McDonald House, " noted Murow. a; 4 I joined D Phi E because I liked every girl that I met there during Rush my freshman year.

As they banged on the doors and ran screaming through the halls, they woke up all the older sisters in an attempt to drag them outside to see their newly painted rock. Pledges painting the rock was just one of the many traditions that the sisters of Delta Phi Epsilon had. Traditions were one of the largest parts of being in a sorority of fraternity. Each year as new members pledged their prospective houses, they were also signing up for all the traditions that went along with their house. Whether it was pledging activities, serenading, or stealing composites, every house had its own set of unique rituals. One of the favorite customs of many houses was pre-partying before football games. Each year one sorority and one fraternity paired up to drink, play games, and just have a good time before the games. According to Chi Omega sophomore Emily Hussey, " Pregamming is a great way to get pumped up before the game, and the guys always made it so much fun. " One of the other great aspects of prepartying is that fraternities and sororites are required to switch off the houses each year that they pregame with. By doing this, members of the Greek system interact with different people and meet new friends. Another ritual of the Greek system was the stealing of composites. Fraternity members used their stealth spy skills to sneak into sororities and steal their composites. However, if ever caught, the men were expected to serenade the sorority women. However, traditions of the greek system also involved pledging activites. In fact, many sororities had a pledge prank, where the pledges planned a prank on the older girls. According to Jamie O ' Hara, a pledge in Kappa Alpha Theta, " For our pledge class prank we went and woke all the girls in the house at 3am and told them we had painted the rock. They all got up to go see it but when they got up there and we " unveiled " it we had big signs saying " just kidding " and pledge class 2003. " . In addition, another pledge tradition is big sis lil sis night. In this activity, the pledges found out who their big sisters were. The little sisters then were able to meet the rest of their family and their other big sisters. These " families " created strong bonds that helped ease the pledges into the Greek system. Regardless of the event, the traditions were all in good fun and created a sense of adventure and bonding in the Greek system. to C o E My favorite part of the year is our annual AEPi bash that is an all day party with live bands throughout the day. It ' s a great way to end the year. Traditions 333 Members of Gamma Phi Beta sport their team ' s Greek Week shirts during the week of festivities.

In fact, Gamma Phi had a history of winning sisterhood and scholarship awards from their National organization. The sisters of Gamma Phi constantly gained satisfaction because of the diversity of their house. " We have so many different races, religions, and majors; everything. We have a really strong sisterhood, " Katherine Black, junior computer science engineering major, explained. From engineering to film majors, the house had all academic areas covered. Even outside the house, the girls were extremely involved including active participation in Bible studies, choirs, academic fraternities, and community service. Junior psychology and film major, Hyun Lee commented, " We all come from different backgrounds. I ' m an international student from Korea. There ' s another international student from China. Not a lot of us are from Michigan, surprisingly. Even if we don ' t have a common interest or we don ' t like the same things, somehow how we always find a moment where we ' re all on the same page. " Being one of the smaller houses in the Greek community never stopped the girls from pursuing what they love. " [The best thing is our] closeness. We all know each other, " junior psychology major Kathryn Torres expressed. Gamma Phi had a unanimous goal of proving themselves during Greek Week. " I think we showed a lot of the bigger houses that we are contenders. We might not be able to " wow " them with the sheer force of our members, but I feel like a lot of us are talented enough to really get noticed by people, " Torres continued. In the end, it was the house that meant the most to the girls. Hyun concluded, " I think it ' s because a lot of us here actually want to be here. We all have different things to do, but in the end our top priority is our house. Everybody can say one unique thing about everyone in the house. I don ' t know a lot of other houses that can do that. " E 03 ( (0 When you ' re down, you will just hear someon running down the hall like a herd of elephants. And you ' re like what is going on?

Very few of the Greek houses on campus were historical, but the passing of the ordinance would include nearly 70 percent of the houses. S.Thomas photo 336 Greek Life Windows and slate roofs on Greek houses are pricey to repair to the standards of historical houses. The majority of the Greek members on campus did not approve of the historical district proposal and even attended city council meetings to show their dismay. S. Thomas photo to fish propffi R.T1 itcoul from I Comn way K DM thjtei group absent torch; since r thisej kin; house to use ilarge duo very e I K A to (L to D O by helen wang Throughout first semester, the Greek community found itself working together to fight an ordinance on the agenda for Ann Arbor City Council ' s vote. This ordinance proposed expanding the Washtenaw-Hill Historic District from around 20 properties to 176. This would include about 70 percent of the Greek houses on campus. All Greek houses that were to be in this proposed area were opposed to the idea because of what it meant for them in the future. If a house were considered historical, it could not do anything to alter the outside appearance of the house without approval from the Historic Preservation Committee. Members of the Historic Preservation Committee and City Council believed that making these houses historical was the best way to preserve historic architecture. As Susan Wineberg, a member of the Historic District Commission and a resident of a historic district, said, " This was the best thing that ever happened to [my] neighborhood. As a result of the district, a neighborhood group was formed and things really started to improve. It is still a neighborhood of absentee landlords, but the level of care has noticeably improved. " This, however, could be frustrating because of the time it takes to get approval for changes on the house. " The fact that our house is considered historical has definitely affected our autonomy from the city, " said Logan Rich, President of Sigma Delta Tau, a house already considered historical. In addition, many houses agreed with the idea that since it was their house, they " should be allowed to do what [they] choose, " as Mary Beth Seiler, Director of Greek Life, said. The potential financial burden was also an issue to many houses impacted by this expansion because if a repair or replacement on a part of a house were required to be in a historical manner, it would cost a lot more. For instance, roofs on many older houses use slate, so if a house wanted to replace their slate roof, they would be required to use slate. However, slate is much more expensive than asphalt, so this would require a larger sum of money to make a similarly effective replacement. Many Greeks believed that, " what the expansion [would] do, is make repairs and maintenance for Greek houses very expensive, " said Derek Hrzek, President of Psi Upsilon, a house in the proposed area. ro u O to VI ( This was the best thing that ever happened to [my] neighborhood. As a result of the [historical] district... the level of care has noticeably improved. Historical Houses 337 GRADUATES o u L ti fte C fytamafa sf _y v - x 338 Graduates ny, senior year was a paradox of emotions. Preparing to leave Ann Arbor behind, seniors started adjusting for their move out into the world. Juggling responsibilities during their last year such as senior audits, graduation preparations, and job searches proved to be difficult to those captured under the curse of " senioritis " . Prospective graduates also spent their final days at the University attempting to give their school a proper goodbye before graduation. Seniors took the opportunity to visit their favorite places in Ann Arbor one last time, reliving old memories in the places that had made Ann Arbor home. Knowing friendships would soon be parting, ith cl Si students cherished their time with close friends. Regardless of their final destination, each graduate walked away with more than just a diploma.

Granata photo Opposite page: Two students lie in the sun on the Diag as the snow begins to melt during late spring. A sense of relief was felt by students as the semester ' s end and graduation neared. . Neff photo Memories % SO Lifetime year marked the conclusion of the chaotic and almost surreal lifestyle that most students were accustomed. As the graduation day approached, most seniors chose to reflect fondly on their years at the University. The good, the bad, and the ugly experiences culminated into distant lighthearted memories for the majority of seniors. Retrospection of failed exams, fights with roommates, and other dire occurrences secured both laughs and tears. Despite an abundance of unique memories, most seniors concluded that beating the Ohio State University on November 22 was one of their best memories. The momentous game was watched by majority of the members of Class of 2004 and many felt that the historic win and trip to the Rose Bowl was the perfect ending to their college experience. Christina Benedict, a statistics senior revealed, " My favorite college memory would have to be the last Ohio State game. There is no feeling in the world like when you are on that field with your best friends. These are the friends that 1 know I will have for the rest of my life. " Despite the tough job market and struggling economy, prospective graduates were ecstatic to move on and experience the new adventures awaiting them. Most seniors focused on the future and chose not to worry about the accompanying uncertainty that encountered them after their graduation. An optimistic Benedict added, " I know that wherever I am and whatever I do, I will be okay in the end. The future is what we make of it, and I plan to make it the best it can possibly be. " Ewa Pawlak, a psychology and German double major senior, added " I am very ready at this point. It ' s about time. " For most of the graduating class, senior year was a time spent not solely preparing for the future, but also collecting the memories that they would carry with them for a lifetime. Memories 341 While packing up at the end of the second semester of their senior year, roommates May Fung, economics and French major, and Carmen Leon, French and Arabic studies major, embrace each other after realizing that they soon may be miles apart. One of the most difficult parts about graduating was the thought of separating from friends. Tedjasukmana photo 342 Graduates graduates of two thousand a JL four Abramson, Emma Atlanta.

Many recently graduated students stayed in Ann Arbor for the months following graduation until they figured out where their degree would lead them. Tedjasultmana photo Loose Ends S Responsib n , oW- vi entered their final year at the University with hopes of spending all of their time partying and hanging out. Although students tried to block out all thoughts of classes and plans for the future, pressures a bout meeting graduation requirements sometimes interfered with the easy lifestyle. Faced with the imminent graduation, most seniors had to actually- work hard in order to tie up the loose ends before adorning the black cap and gown. First and foremost, seniors had to make sure they met all of their degree requirements. Senior audits, which detailed a student ' s academic- status, sometimes left students scrambling to fulfill missing distribution or degree requirements in their final semesters. Because seniors were the first to register and targeted many of the " Easy A " courses to have a light load, many teachers tried to limit the basic courses to the underclassmen who had yet to choose their majors. Looking at her senior audit, Business major Lauren Weitzmann realized that she had 6 distribution credits left to take. " ! did not want to take anything very difficult, so I signed up for a GeoScience class on rocks. It was not very interesting, but it got the job done and I did not have to work too much. " Along with class work, seniors had to schedule in the prerequisite preparation for life after graduation. Counselors found themselves bombarded with questions about the details of certain graduate school applications and other post graduate programs. Those who looked to graduate schools spent their fall studying for the LSAT, GMAT, MCAT, GREs, or other graduate school admissions tests while still making time for their regular class work. Many found out that it was just as much work and hassle filling out applications and rushing to get teacher recommendations as it was to finish their required courses. Whatever the preoccupation, for most, senior year was not as easy as previously supposed. Seniors had to deal with the fact that their surreal life in Ann Arbor was coming to a close, and preparing for graduation took time and effort away from the party scene. Political Science senior Dmitry Belaev diligently studies in the graduate library. Like many others. seniors had to find the time to fi nish all of their work while filling requirements for graduation.

Although it was their third vigil since starting college, many seniors attended amidst the 1,100 present to listen to the speakers, light candles, and spend an evening in silence to commemorate the event.

As it was their last year without serious responsibility, living in a house with friends, screaming in the Big House, and being able to sleep past noon, more than a few seniors had difficulty concentrating on anything related to academics. The symptoms were clear and well known. Diagnosis: Senioritis. Seniors experienced varying degrees of the phenomenon, with some skipping a few classes per week and others sleeping through class on a daily basis. Senior biopsychology Chris Fame explained, " It was more of a feeling of non-motivation, but you knew you still had to write your term papers and stuff. It was something I did not really act on, but I wish I could ' ve acted on. " Ethan Smith, film major, simply shared, " I ' ve had senioritis since high school. It ' s not an excuse to be lazy, I think it ' s the reason seniors are lazy. " Senior Jacqui Buda had insight as to why senioritis existed; " As a senior, you start to focus on actual job applications and grad school applications, and you realize how insignificant each individual class is. The more you realize how [much] more important job applications and interviews are than class, the less you want to actually be in class. This holds especially true for classes where it is almost impossible to fail. " Members of the younger classes speculated as to how seniorits would effect them. Sophomore Matt Silver commented, " I feel like I have senioritis at the end of every semester. By the time the end of senior year rolls around, I ' m going to be too worn out to do anything! I can see how [senioritis] would happen. At the end of senior year, you ' re trying to hang out with friends as much as possible because the whole experience is coming to an end. " The age of onset varied from student to student, ranging from high school to late senior year. The symptoms of senioritis were individually treatable, but the only complete cure was a diploma.

Michigan fans, students, and alumni ventured to Ann Arbor to celebrate the olverines and the Buckeyes. J. Neff photo Long Live VrU Wolverine made it their duty to never felt too far removed from the University. Still devoted to his alma mater, graduate pharmacy student and Alumni Association member Vinay Yakkundi explained, " 1 still go to football games or watch them on TV. We ' ve always had devoted alumni because one learns skills here you use once you ' ve graduated. It makes people feel grateful and want to the return the favor. " Yakkundi ' s support was an example of how alumni showed support. Commonly known phrases " Hail to the Victors " and " Go Blue " echoed from the corner of Main and Stadium for a few hours on seven Saturdays during the fall. Well over one hundred thousand fans attended every football game, and only a fraction were current students and the rest were alumni. To create a hostile atmosphere for the opposing team, it was often up to alumni to help the students makes noise. Sophomore mechanical engineering major Bob Turkovich grew up attending football games. When asked about the University ' s devoted alumni, he said one person came to mind: Paul Edwards. Turkovich shared, " Paul ' s been going to games since he graduated. He encouraged the section during every game to be the loudest of the alumni. He had his own cheers, like ' Move the Chains ' after every first down, ' Bomb that sucker ' before an offensive play on first down, and a ' Defense ' chant after a third down stop. He tailgated before every game and during the game he got the most energetic kids [in the section] involved and psyched up. " Alumni supported much for than just the athletics. Sophomore material science and engineering major, Laura Povlich, explained, " There were a lot of alumni members in the Ballroom Dance Club. They danced, but they also contributed financially to the club. It definitely made it easier to [keep the club going.] The support of alumni helped current students to create their own pride in the University. It helped to see other people, even after they graduated, putting time and energy into the school. It made you realize what a good place to be this was. " On and off campus, alumni supported their alma mater. Through the Alumni Association web site, alumni were able to stay updated about events on campus as well as make donations to the University. Some renovations, including those in the School of Social Work, were made possible only through alumni contributions. In some cases it was solely because of devoted alumni that current students were able to have the experiences and opportunities that they had. From sporting events to the dance floor, alumni support continuously influenced current students ' experiences at the University. 370 Graduates Former football players stand on the field awaiting the team ' s entrance before the Michigan versus Ohio State game.

Rick Lax straightens his tie back at home. Lax, a political science major senior, opted to run as an independent for a position on the Ann Arbor City Council but was denied a spot winning only 24 percent of the vote. Tedjasukmana photo 380 Graduates Rights Si S S cl leaving Ann Arbor and moving on to the real world, every senior had something they had to do before saying goodbye to the University. Whether it was participating in the pizza eating contest at Bella Napoli ' s, skipping class to drink sangria at Dominick ' s, or simply spending time in the Arb, many seniors found themselves trying to squeeze in activities until their last moment. Even before stepping foot on campus, most incoming freshman heard about things they " had to do " in Ann Arbor from alumni and friends. Speaking from his own experience, Business School senior Zubin Kapadia said, " I think one thing that everyone should try before they leave Ann Arbor is Mongolian BBQ. It ' s something that I ' ve heard students talk about since the first day I got to Michigan. " For many seniors, eating at local restaurants on Main Street and State Street definitely made it onto the checklist of places to go and things to do before graduation. Other seniors listed University traditions such as spinning the cube, visiting the Arb, as well as going to a concert at Hill Auditorium. LSA Senior Scott Showalter said that painting the rock was something that all Michigan students should do before leaving. Meanwhile, LSA senior John Rhyu said that " all students need to attend a football, basketball, and hockey game in Ann Arbor, " considering the heavy sports ' tradition at Michigan. The University offered so much to do that for many, it was hard to accomplish everything before their final year. From breakfast with friends at Angelo ' s to looking at exhibits at the various museums on campus as well as having drinks with friends at Good Time Charley ' s and cheering on the football team in the Big House, seniors looked forward to the unforgettable memories made in their last year as a Wolverine.

" Some chose to continue their education at graduate school, while others immersed themselves into the ever-challenging job market. Still others, burnt out by their college experience, decided to take a little time to travel, visit with family and friends, and ultimately relax. Graduate school applicants had to fill out applications and take the required exams. Brent Densham, a senior biopsychology major, hoped to be admitted into law school to study bio-medical law. Densham ' s " appreciation for many contexts and forms of education " helped him to realize th at a great deal of his education did not necessarily occur in the classroom; the " community environment in Ann Arbor " contributed heart- ily to his growth as an individual and the subsequent direction he pursued. Nostalgia and fear of change made many students cling to their University memories a bit tighter, not quite ready to part with the college way of life. Sallie Taylor, a senior psychology and communications major commented, " I have my whole life to work with, so I want to travel and visit my college friends and sorority sisters across the country before the option is taken away from me. " While many students would rather stay in Ann Arbor leave clutching a diploma, most were confident that what they learned in their years at the University would serve as a continual asset for the future. Kate Reilly, a senior economics major said, " I think a U of M education definitely gives you a lot of advantages. We all know that the alumni base is huge, and networking from there can become a lot easier. " Reilly ' s nostalgia set in later, however; " ! still can ' t believe I ' ll be an alumna soon, or that I ' ll never watch another football game from the student section. " Although graduation, taking place in late April, seemed to come faster than planned, the two semesters comprising senior year offered students an opportunity both to prepare for the following year and enjoy their final days as an undergraduate. A student inquires about his post graduate options at the international offices in the Union. The advisors in these offices offered information about the Peace Corps and other prestigious programs.

Moving Forward 389 I A graduate displays her appreciation to her parents with a message of masking tape on her cap. Many seniors found creative means to differentiate themselves in the sea of black robes in the Big House during the spring commencement ceremony so that friends and family could pick them out in the crowd.

(AP Photo Frank Franklin U) Starting at 4:10 on August 14, 2003, about 50 million people lost electrical power. To date, the August 14 power outage was the largest blackout in American history. The affected region stretched from New York to Toronto and as far west as Detroit. Numerous cities in New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Michigan, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Vermont, and Canada experienced the blackout for more than 24 hours. In addition to the lack of electrical power, some areas did not have water, which caused many sewage problems as toilets were unable to flush. Americans and Canadians alike demonstrated solidarity and innovation when it came to coping with the effects of the power outage. No serious incidents of looting or burglary were reported; however, the blackout did have a negative short-run impact on many businesses, especially restaurants. Despite various speculations about the cause of the blackout, many bystanders pointed to terrorism as the root of the problem. In the end, the cause of the 21 power plants that shut down was determined as a result of a failure of a 345,000 volt power line east of Cleveland, Ohio. by ema sadikovic ar HE GOVERNATOR Amid admirers, Arnold Schwarzenegger talks with reporters after his speech as he takes his cam- paign for governor of California to the campus of California State University, Long Beach, Wednes- day, Sept. 3, 2003. (AP PhotoiRic Francis) Less than a year after Democrat Gray Davis was reelected to serve another four-year term as ernor, the citizens of California demanded a recall election, and on October 7. 2003 Davis was forced out of office. He was the first alifornia governor to be recalled d only the second in the nation ' s history. Californians wanted the recall election because they were unhappy with Davis ' economic decisions. At the time of Davis ' removal from office, unemployment rates in California were running above the national average and the budget deficit was rapidly growing. People around the nation waited for , what was to come next. On November 17. 2003 Austrian immigrant and former actor. Arnold Schwarzenegger, was 00( sworn into office, replacing Davis as California ' s leader. On top of the already unusual circumstances of the election race. Schwarzenegger was a Republican candidate who n in a historically primarily democratic state. Before the campaign. Schwarzenegger was best known as the Terminator, the main character from the Hollywood hits, " Terminator, " " Terminator 2:Judgment Day, " and " T3: Rise of the Machines. " In tact, " T3: Rise of the Machines " was released in stores around the country the same week that he was inaugurated. The actor-turned-politician quickly earned the nickname " The Governator. " When Schwarzneggcr was sworn into office he assumed a large responsibility; California had 35 million people, the fifth largest economy in the world, and a 1 4 billion dollar budget deficit. Schwarzenegger planned to divide budget cuts across many programs to lessen the impact and push for the authority to borrow funds. He also emphasized the need for changes to the state workers ' compensation system. No matter which course of action he took, the actor-turned-governor was in his biggest role to date. by Jacqueline zacny Corden, Marya 279 Cordero, Jessica 225,347 Corey-Pacheco, Liz 317 Corn, Allison 271 Corner, Delphine 279 Corragin, Angela 2 1 7 Corrigan, Geoff 1 77 Corwin.Tim 272,313 Cosner, Megan 263 Costa, Joshua 25 Costakes.Angie 347 Costakes, Karen 3 1 7 Costello.Amy 287 Cotton, Stephanie 200 Couch.William 271 Coughlin, Caroline 272 Coughlin, Megan 277 Counihan.Bobbi 234 Couretas, Zoe 256 Courtade, Brendon 248 Courtney III, Edward 347 Courtney, Kelly 221 Coury.John 305 Coury, Lindsay 271 Couzens 290-295 Coveh, William 199 Cox II, Larry 272 Cox.Andrew 287 Cox, Courtney 280 Cox, Morgan 22 1 Cox, Renee 63 Cox, Stephanie 303 Crabtree, Elizabeth 287 Crabtree, James 248 Craciun, Dragos 195 Craig, Stephanie 303 Cramer, Andrew 316 Cramer, Katie 247 Cramer, Mike 223 Crandell, Lauren 317 Crane, Dan 245 Craner, Julia 261 Cranford, Sean 253 Crast,Halley 263 Crawford, Michael 264 Cregg, Darryl 263 Creps, Karenanna 263 Cresci, Kyle 258 Crew, Women ' s 142 Crissman, Charles 272 Critchell, Kathryn 347 Crite.Janel 347 Crone.

PETERSON .HctelW Scott Peterson, left, and defense attorney Kirk McAllister stand for Judge Al Girolami as he enters the courtroom in Stanislaus County Superior Court in Modesto, California, Friday, October 24, 2003. Peterson ' s preliminary hearing to see if he ' ll stand trial on charges of killing his wife, Laci Peterson, and unborn son was delayed for a fourth time Friday. (AP PhotolAl Golub) On December 24, 2002, 27-year old Laci Peterson was reported missing from her Modesto home in California. Laci ' s husband, Scott Peterson, made the call to police after reportedly returning from a solo fishing trip in Berkeley. At the time of the disappearance, Laci was eight months pregnant with her husbands child. Despite a thorough police investigation and numerous rewards offered for her return, it was not until April 1 4, 2003 that Laci ' s body was discovered by a dog walker at the Point Isabel Regional shoreline. The body of the unborn son was found one day prior. Scott Peterson was arrested on April 18. He had first been a suspect since three weeks into the investigation when officials discovered that he had been having an affair with a 28-year old woman and took out a $250,00 life insurance policy on Laci. Despite being officially charged with two counts of murder, Scott pleaded not guilty. Both Scott and Laci ' s family continue to wait for a verdict that will hopefully bring justice to the tragic situation. by jenny welbel Gibson, Jeff 263 Glass, Lauren 3 1 7 Goldberg, Gillian 317

JACKSON On December 18, 2003, Michael Jackson was faced with criminal charges not unfamiliar to his past. The King of Pop was charged with seven counts of lewd acts with children under the age of 14, said to have occurred between February 20 and March 10 of that same year at his Neverland Valley Ranch near Los Olivos, California. Each count carries a potential prison term of between 3 to 8 years. Jackson was also arrested on two counts of giving wine to children. Jackson firmly denied all accusations, claiming he never made sexual contact with any of the children who visited Neverland. Controversy surrounding possible mistreatment during Jackson ' s arrest and supposed financial difficulties added to Jackson ' s media spotlight. His arraignment on January 16, 2004, attracted an enormous amount of press coverage. With hearings still in process, the country awaited to see whether Jackson would actually go on trial. Michael Jackson gives the peace sign as he exits the Santa Barbara County Jail after being booked on child molestation charges Thursday, November 20, 2003.

(AP PlwtalLouis Lanzano) saddam hussein: AN ENEMY CAPTURED Captured former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein speaks in Baghdad Sunday, December 14,2003 in this image from television. Top U.S. administrator in Iraq, L. Paul Bremen confirmed the capture of former Iraqi president Saddam Hussein in a dirt hole under a farmhouse near his hometown of Tikrit, eight months after the fall of Baghdad. (AP Photo US Military via APTN) For the Bush Administration, it was a long year full of decisions, defeat, mistakes, and triumphs. After months of unsuccessful searching for the most wanted man in Iraq, a small piece of evidence led the U.S. forces to one of the greatest victories of the year. December 14, 2003 marked the day when Saddam Hussein was found hiding in an underground crawl space, nine miles away from his hometown, Tikrit. Though Hussein had a pistol in his possession, the tired leader submitted to defeat and was taken into custody without a shot being fired. The U.S. troops also found weapons, about $750,000 in U.S. $100 bills, two AK-47s, and a white and orange taxi. Bush promised to give Hussein a fair trial with a jury of his peers. This accomplishment, however, did not mark the end of the fight. President Bush briefed the nation by saying, " And that is our strategy moving forward. The war on terror is a different kind of war, waged capture by capture, cell by cell, and victory by victory. Our security is assured by our perseverance and by our sure belief in the success of liberty. And the United States- of America will not relent until this war is won.

President George W. Bush declared that the United States must begin a campaign to overthrow Saddam Hussein, and that " this will not be a campaign of half-measures, and we will accept no outcome except victory. " Through a series of military battles lasting forty-three days, the United States went to war with Iraq. Then, on May 1 st , 2003, from his seat on the aircraft carrier, the USS Abraham Lincoln, President Bush declared that combat was over. During his address to the American people, he stated that, " The battle of Iraq is one victory in a war on terror that began on September 1 1, 2001, and still goes on. " Success continued as news of the capture of notorious dictator and ex-Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein became public. President Bush ' s previously stated comment proved to hold true as the year went on, because American soldiers continued to occupy Iraqi soil and consequently continued to lose their lives. Maintaining order in a country that was in turmoil did not prove to be an easy task, as different religious and political groups were in contention with each other. As of February 2004, about 525 American soldiers had perished, and other nations also mourned the loss of several of their troops. by nicole mammo 101,376 hoemaker, Chris 247 honce.Allison 237 hope.Josh 287 hort,Abigail 290,376 hovein, Dawn 250 howalter, Rob 223 howerman.Troy 53 briber, Sarah 261 hrivastava, Rajat 269 tiropshire, Chris 271 htrahman, Liz 263 hukla,Alice 287 hulman, Julie 317 hum, Veronica 335 humbarger, Margaret 255 humway, Scott 255 hura, Lauren 33 1 hyu, Elisa 264 ia, Bernard 295 ibbold.Jeffery 247 ibilsky, Elizabeth 271 iciliano, Elisabeth 204,321 iddiqui, Khuram 234 ideroff, Melissa 245,316 iedel, Laura 316 iegal, Marissa 245,317 iegel, Jamie 264 Siegel, Paul 264 Siegel, Rebecca 264 Siegelheim, Heather 274,316 Sieges.Amber 287 Siegler, Matthew 329 Siesser, Blaine 277 Sigma Alpha Epsilon 314 Sigma Delta Tau 317 Sigma Phi Epsilon 310 Signorelli, Gerry 177 Signori, Mario 263 Sigsbey, Rachel 376 Sigworth, Katleyn 287 Sika, Gaurav 272 Sikora, Mathew 272 Sikorski, Lisa 209 Silidker.Aaron 263 Silver.Jesse 245 Silver, Justine 195 Silver, Matt 361 Silverberg.Amy 253,331 Silverstein, Geoff 232 Simmons, Doris 164 Simmons, Sara 266 Simoes, Melissa 376 Simon, Gena 316 Simone.Nick 305 Simons, Dana 195 Simowitz, Rachel 200 Simpkins II, Eugene 250 Simpson, Helena 228 Simpson, Lauren 256 Sims, Courtney 170 Sin.Alex 285 Sinclair, Matt 261 Sinclair, Mike 188 Sing, Yek Wee 285 Singer.Andrew 247 Singer, Matthew 27 1 Singh, Jasmine 247 Singh, Jaswinder 269 Singh, Jeremy 376 Singh, Nandini 287 Singh, Neil 277 Singh, Ravi 271 Singh, Robby 277 Singh, Rohini 43 Singh, Seema 317 Singhal.Joay 272 Sirgedas, Laura 256 Sirgedas, Lina 376 Siroky.Adam 223 Sisterman, Kathryn 376 Sitaram, Sowmya 279 Sitko, Nicole 297 Siu.Alex 237 Skiles, Courtney 221,234 Skinner.Anna 237, 377 Skluzak, Derek 272 Skolnik, Rebecca 245,317 Skorupa, Dana 377 Skowroner, Paul 272 Skripnik, Steven 377 Skulsky, Eric 295 Skupin, Melissa 285 Slade.Jenna 245 Slat, Emily 266 Slater, Jamie 282 Slattery, Mark 3 1 I Slavin.Jarrett 266,313 285 Slevin, Niamh 224 Slivensky, Katherine 274 Sloan, Alexandra 277 Sloan, Anthony 195 Slominski, Lisa 195 Slosberg, Daniel 209 Slosberg, Deborah 290 Slott, Joanna 279 Slough, Lauren 279 Slupek, Christina 335 Smah, Seema 277 American soldiers from the I st Battalion, 22nd infantry regiment, 4th Infantry division inTikrit, Iraq, Thursday, September 1 1, 2003, reflect during a memorial service.

Dennis Kucinich, of Ohio pose together prior to the ' Rock the Vote ' debate Tuesday, November 4, 2003 at Boston ' s Faneuil Hall. (AP Photo Steven Sttttte ) The v ie for the Democratic Party Presidential Candidate nomination began long before any other in history. With their first formal debate in May of 2003 rather than at the end of the year, candidates laid out their positions on every political issue. Three out of the nine fighting for the prized position dropped out. Two more, Joe Lieberman and Al Sharpton were close in their footsteps. Leading the Democratic contenders was Senator John Kerry. Kerry first gained fame as a war hero protesting Vietnam. He was a United States senator for Massachusetts after his election in 1984 until declaring his choice to run for the Presidency. Surprising many, Kerry won the Iowa caucus and the New Hampshire primaries beating out thought to be favorite, Howard Dean. Against gay marriage, Kerry supported rights for gay couples and was in favor of allowing homosexuals to serve in the military. Kerry initially supported the war in Iraq, but revised his opinion, stating that President Bush misled the public. Dean, Wesley Clark, and John Edwards, were three more strong candidates competing for the Democratic endorsement. Dean, hailing from Vermont, served five terms as his state ' s governor. He was the first person to enter the Democratic race for a presidential nomination. Dean supported the woman ' s right to an abortion and would like to repeal Bush ' s tax cuts. Clark was the only man trying for the spot that has not held a political office. A four star retired army general, Clark was a CNN military analyst leading up to the election period. He was said to be the most conservative of the liberal candidates. Clark made headlines when he publicized all of his records, allowing the Americans to see all of his past. Clark was generally inconsistent with his opinion about the war in Iraq. He criticized the poor planning, however he agreed with Iraqi empowerment. Edwards was also a United States senator. He was the only contender who completely supported the war in Iraq and wanted other countries to help the United States reconstruct the country. Edwards also disagreed with privatizing social security. Despite efforts, Edwards dropped out of the Presidential race on March 3, 2004 due to disappointing results in the primaries. The Democratic Party had many strong, intelligent candidates, but the odds were amassed against them for the 2004 election. The general public responded well to the President ' s handling of 9 1 1 and his very visible campaigning did not hurt him, which led to a gain in Republican seats in the Senate and in the House in 2002. by mary katherine zevalkink CO FROM THE START As members of congress look on, President Bush signs the Partial Birth Abortion Act of 2003 at the Ronald Reagan Building and international Trade Center Wednesday.

It was the closest election in history and. with the Florida recounts, was also one of the most E ' VH vAf HHLJm . H " v . . K L ,JB A X H B B km w controversial. Not even a year after he was elected, the nation faced the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon that marked the beginning of Bush ' s term. Coming into an election year, 2003-2004 was the final stretch of President Bush ' s term in office. In November, President Bush signed the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban of 2003. which made it illegal for doctors to take excessive action to abort a fetus that is in its second or third term. Clinton twice previously vetoed the ban and once it passed u was challenged in three federal courts, but the legislation remained. Bush surprised troops in Iraq with a special Thanksgiving Day visit where he thanked the soldiers in person for their service to the country. The trip was planned and carried out in such detailed secrecy that even some members of the Secret Service were kept uninformed. Bush was the first President to travel to Iraq. It was a time in which many attacks were being made on the United States forces there. For security reasons. Air Force One landed without its lights on and taxied to a remote part of the airport. Then, President Bush met 600 members of the 1 " Armored 1 )ivision and the S2 ' " 1 Airborne I )ivision in one of the hangars for Thanksgiving dinner. During the State of the Union address on January 20, 2004, President Bush spoke out against same sex marriages. He supported the Defense of Marriage Act, which was originally signed into law by former President, Bill Clinton. The Defense of Marriage Act defined marriage as a union between a man and a woman and it prohibited federal recognition of same-sex unions, regardless where the union was performed. President Bush also actively spoke out against abortion, particularly partial birth abortion. President Bush continued the war against terrorism and during his presidency Saddam Hussein was captured. The nation reacted with surprise and positive reactions after Hussein was captured on December 13,2003. Towards the end of 2003 and in the beginning ot 2004, the economy began to grow again. With Hussein s capture and the growing economy. Bush ' s bid for re-election in 2004 seemed promising.
