Worcester r In 1837, the year the University was moved from Detroit to Ann Arbor, the student population was seven people. Over a century and a half later, that number grew to more than 24,000 undergraduate students, who hailed from all 50 states and over 100 Maize and blue balloons adorn the Michigan Union, welcoming students to campus. From September 2 to September 6, the Office of New Student Programs organized one of the most recent University traditions, the " Welcome to Michigan Program. " Tedjasttkmana photo o 00 foreign countries. A university that once employed two faculty members became one of the top five faculties in the country, including Pulitzer Prize winners and Supreme Court Justices. All the while, campus grew to encompass 3,177 acres with 538 major buildings. Autumn leaves give the men ' s crew team a picturesque backdrop to their early morning practice on the Huron river. Michigan Crew was one of the largest athletic teams on campus with a membership of nearly 70 athletes, even though most students rowing at the collegiate level did not row in high school.

LSA offered more than 5,500 courses alone, led by highly qualified instructors and professors. The College of Engineering had 11 nationally renowned fields, while the Division of Kinesiology offered four distinct programs. In addition, the School of Art Design had three galleries for students to exhibit their work. The strengths of all the schools and colleges combined made the University one of the nation ' s Students make their way to class during the first week of school. Walkways were constantly filled with faculty and students walking, riding their bikes, and rollerblading, which kept campus alive on even the coldest winter days.

University teams and championship years were etched into the columns of the sculpture, which was constructed in 1997 through contributions from students, alumni, and supporters. L, Proux photo MICHIGAN LIFE By Kristen Pavle tudents came from across the country and around the world; yet, there was one thing that they all had in common - they all came to the same college town of Ann Arbor. Life at the University consisted of everything from ignoring crosswalk signals to participating in the most recent protests and trying the newest restaurants on campus. The location forced students to own a full four-season wardrobe, and adjust to the sparatic warm November 1 days and cool May evenings. Catching the latest concert, seeing a new release at the State Theater, and following the latest campus politics were also a priority. Academics and studying were also important, and students found many different options for where to crack open the books, including the numberous coffee shops and libraries on campus. Students also found ways to integrate their religion into their lives, whether they attended Bible study once a week or visited Hillel for Friday night services. The lives that students created for themselves here were often hectic, but would not be planned any other way. In between speeches, a graduating senior sits on the shoulders of a friend in celebration. The ceremony began promptly 9: 1 5 with the procession of the graduates onto the field. Tedjasukmana photo A graduate shows his excitement in the form of bubbles at commencement. Graduates expressed their enthusiasm in many ways at the 2004 ceremony, such as decorating their caps and wearing wigs. Tedjasukmatta photo I Protected from the rain, University President Mary Sue Coleman addresses the class of 2004 at commencement. Even though the weather was less than ideal, speakers and graduates kept their spirits high as they rejoiced in the culmination of years of hard work. J. Neff photo G raduation A cold, drizzly morning greeted the class of 2004 on Saturday, May 1, as they entered the Big House. Commencement, the culmination of their years of hard work at the University, lay just inside the stadium walls. Donned in matching caps and gowns, the graduates solemnly filed in. They sang the fight song, listened to remarks by University officials and President Mary Sue Coleman, and then the poignant words of keynote speaker David E. Davis Jr., founder of Automobile Magazine, who was honored by the University with an honorary doctor of humane letters degree at the ceremony. Davis urged the new graduates to take responsibility for their own actions, and solemnly admitted, " I did everything to prevent myself from succeeding and yet I still succeeded. " The University ' s decision to cast Davis in March was met with protest from the student body. A letter from LSA graduate Adam Paterno to The Michigan Daily summed up the students ' frustrations. Paterno expressed the desire for what he deemed a more high-profile and relevant commencement speaker, such as Michigan State University ' s speaker, Dr. Condoleezza Rice, National Security Advisor, instead of Davis, who never even officially graduated college. In his speech, Davis recognized Paterno, acknowledged his letter, and jokingly promised, " I will find you. " Davis continued on to remark about his life experiences, refusing to sugar-coat the hardships ahead for the new graduates, but encouraged them to remain optimistic and to choose something they truly enjoyed above all else. The commencement experience was disappointing for some, including engineering graduate Sara Grady who said, " Graduation was the culmination of four years hard work: it was rainy, gloomy, cold, and overall, boring. " Yet, other students were satisfied with Davis ' remarks after the completion of the graduation ceremony. " I thought graduation was going to suck, but Davis was actually really interesting, " computer science graduate Joe Williams said. " He championed the experiences you gain from life, and had more to say than how valuable a good education is and ' Go Blue. ' " Black and white striped sculptures of human figures attract Art Fair spectators. Along with sculptures, the Fair also featured other various styles of artwork, such as paintings, photographs, jewelry, furniture, and pottery. J. Neff photo ann aroor b ArtF air JLn July, the city of Ann Arbor boastfully held the biggest event of its kind in the United States: the Ann Arbor Art Fair. For four days artists, musicians, and festival-goers from all over the nation congregated in celebration of handmade crafts and artwork. The Art Fair was actually an accumulation of four different fairs: the Ann Arbor Street Fair, the South University Art Fair, the Guild Summer Art Fair, and the State Street Art Fair. These fairs all came together in spirit and festivities in the center of downtown. This year ' s 45th annual Art Fair was held from July 21-24. While perusing the sidewalks of this year ' s Art Fair, one was bombarded with an amalgamation of paintings, woodwork, pottery, sculpture, photographs, jewelry, clothing, and even surreally detailed wax renditions of humans. " Since I ' m an art student, I like to walk around and see what people do and how they make their art. Some of the artists are pretty talented and they make good money at the fair. But whether it ' s good art or not, it doesn ' t matter. It ' s fun to walk around in the crowd and take in all of the eye candy, not to mention the greasy but great food, " senior graphic design major James Ardnt said. Not only were the aesthetics and food stands an attraction, but the mime shows, face painting, beer gardens, and street musicians also drew a crowd. you start to see the same people and things. My favorite part of the Art Fair is the Urban Outfitters sidewalk sale. I bought four scarves, mittens, a shirt, and a pair of shoes for under twenty bucks. It ' s awesome, " Eastern Michigan student Emily Crissey said. Whether one was there to buy art, sell art, see art, eat, drink, or just hang out and take in all the sights, the Ann Arbor Art Fair was definitely one of the city ' s main attractions this summer. " During the Art Fair, this city i s crazy. It doesn ' t even seem like Ann Arbor; you can barely move on the sidewalk, " senior political science major Andrew Ginis said. Despite the craziness, the Art Fair will always be a part of the backbone of Ann Arbor ' s summer life. Some people went just for the sales at all the local stores. " I ' ve been coming to the art fair since I was in high school. I like seeing the art and everything, but after a few years w. While walking the streets of Ann Arbor, Art Fair visitors pass by the large iron ring sculpture. Central Campus was taken over by the Art Fair, accomodating the large number of artists displaying their work. J. Neff photo With fan and carpet in hand, students venture to their new residence in West Quad on Central Campus. West Quad was known to be especially difficult to move in to due to the lack of elevators in the building. Tedjasukmana photo Cars line Thompson Street on Central Campus while students and parents unload belongings. Due to the large number of students moving in at the beginning of the fall semester, traffic congestion in Ann Arbor was unavoidable, especially with the change in traffic patterns. Tedjasttktnana photo M ove in T he weather had reached excruciating highs, there were more parents than students on campus, and corners were filled with groups of first-year students who stormed the street like herds of cattle... move- in had officially begun. Throughout the last week of August, an air of excitement could be felt as students moved to campus. Returning students could not wait to reunite with old friends and begin their Welcome Week festivities. Meanwhile for first- year students, move-in caused feelings of anticipation and confusion. " ! was really excited to move in, but I was also really overwhelmed. Everyone in my hall was moving in at the same time and seemed so stressed out, which made it difficult to meet people at first, " first-year education major Melissa Roter said. First-year student Abby Berman agreed. " Move- in was really stressful because I had not organized myself before I came, and it turned into such a long day, " Berman said. However, Roter felt that there were always people available to lend a helping hand. " The Move-in Makers were extremely helpful. They assisted us in moving all our things in plus they were so friendly, so it created a more relaxed atmosphere, " Roter said. The resident advisors were also available to lend advice to the first- year students. " As an RA with several years at the University under my belt, I often take the hectic move in to college for granted. It is only when you hear that cry for directions to the Diag that you smile fondly and let out a sigh of relief that you are no longer a freshmen, " business administration major Sowmya Krishnamurthy said. First-year students, however, were not the only ones who had hectic move-ins. With streets closed off and little parking available, move-in was never an easy process. " I was helping move in a friend ' s mattress set that he had just bought from a yard sale for 20 dollars. After spending over 30 minutes hauling the mattress into his tiny bedroom, we turned over the mattress in his room only to find a huge puke stain in the corner, " Yasmin Neegeesh said. Regardless of students ' various move- in experiences, all were glad once they were finally settled in and were able to enjoy being at the University. A student participates in a joust, an event offered at Pre-Class Bash. Pre-Class Bash, held on Palmer Field, was the night before the first day of classes, and gave students one more opportunity for fun before school began. S. Ludtke photo Wei come Weel r four months of summer jobs, vacations, or just sitting by the pool, over 24,000 undergraduate students took over campus for the few days before classes, also known as Welcome Week. The activities during the week varied greatly depending on whether it was a student ' s first or fourth year on campus. During New Student Convocation, held in Chrysler Arena, the first- year students were introduced to President Mary Sue Coleman as they listened to her speak about making the most of their time at the University. Afterwards, students participated in Artscapade at the Art Museum and Escapade at the Union, both organized by the Office of New Student Programs. The following day, a picnic was held on Palmer Field and Meijer Madness ended the ev ening. All of these events helped the students become acclimated to campus and meet their fellow students. " It was crazy. I came here knowing no one and by the beginning of classes, I felt like I knew everyone, " first-year pre-med student Dave Muczynski said. In addition to the planned events, older students organized some festivities of their own. Fraternities and students opened their houses to host many parties traditionally held during Welcome Week. " It ' s actually very interesting to watch people you know change personalities right before your eyes at the frat parties, " first-year pre-business student Andrew Daar said. As the first-year students got their initial taste of life at the University, the upperclassmen met with old friends and reminisced about their past years on campus. They sat on their porches, drank a beer or two, and watched as the underclassmen swarmed by, looking for a party or trying to find their way home. " Looking back on my freshman year, I remember traveling in packs of 15 and trying to find something to do on campus, " junior English and French major Stephanie Watson said. Although the parties were plentiful, students still tried to get organized for the upcoming school year. Stores overflowed with students buying books and last minute items for their residence hall rooms and apartments. However, the preparation did not deter from the parties and late nights that made Welcome Week a time that students remembered all year. The information tent, located in the center of the Diag, allows students to find an organization ' s table at Festifall. Festifall allowed freshmen the opportunity to be introduced to the hundreds of organizations on campus. L.

Shaman Drum had a tradition of dressing in drag for the first day of class to lighten the mood of students waiting in hour-long lines to buy books. S.

Construction in this area of campus affected people on foot but left roads clear for drivers. L.

Many new buildings near the Hill area were devoted to the sciences, such as the Life Science Institute. L. Proux photo A fence with signs telling the costs and end dates for the construction of the LSA Building stand behind the building ' s University sign. The renovations caused all departments housed in the building, such as the Office of the Registrar and Photo Services, to move elsewhere on campus. L. Proux photo construction s hether walking in between classes or hanging out at one of the University ' s parks, every student was affected by construction on campus. There were pedestrian detours, roadblocks, fenced- off areas, holes in the ground, piles of dirt, pieces of steel, tall cranes, and big trucks around campus. Although the benefits were hard to think of at times, some did exist. Without construction, the University would not be able to accommodate its increasing student population, nor would it be able to keep up with new technologies. Senior chemical engineering and material science engineering major Erik Young said, " It gets really annoying sometimes, but I think it ' s good that the University is moving forward and making themselves better. " Young overlooked the nuisances and focused on the bigger picture: an improved, more modern University. A few of the major construction projects on campus included the Health System ' s Cardiovascular Center, the Computer Science and Engineering Building on North Campus, and the Palmer Drive Development project. There were several parts to the Palmer Drive Development project, including a new Life Sciences Institute Building, a parking structure, and an Undergraduate Science Building. Students living in Mary Markley Residence Hall were greatly affected by the School of Public Health renovations. First-year general studies major Phil VanSpronsen said, " I wake up every morning at eight to hear the sounds from the construction site. " and construction workers was not always the most pleasant. Mark Hall, who worked on the School of Public Health project, said, " The students aren ' t paying attention. They ' re going to get run over by trucks. " This was a major problem that construction planners had to deal with, as accomodating both students and workers during projects was hard to do. First-year engineering major Jay Lee commented about the pedestrian detour next to the School of Public Health construction site: " It first seemed like a big inconvenience, but after a few days, I got used to it. " Most students just learned to deal with the hassle associated with construction, as annoying as it was. The relationship between students T ?1 R i ! - t " Owi v .

Tedjasukmana photo T housands of people filled the streets, tailgates started at eight in the morning, subdued people painted their entire bodies in the name of a sport: these moments described the passion, the near religion, that is Michigan football. Every home football Saturday, the city of Ann Arbor was overtaken by football and Michigan fanatics alike. It did not matter if the rules of the football game were clear to the fans, if the seats in the Big House were in row one or row 97, or if the game was against Miami of Ohio or Ohio State, football Saturday was about more than just the game. " Just one football game at the Big House is enough to make you a Michigan fan for life, " senior English major Mary Deyoe said. Despite the previous night ' s activities, students managed to wake up and start tailgating hours before the game even began. All Michigan fans were welcome to drink, eat, dance in the streets, and play beer pong on tables painted to resemble the Michigan football field. Rival fans also joined in the tailgating festivities, although under disgression. " There ' s nothing better than beating Miami [of Ohio] kids at beer pong and then not being able to stand up straight during the game, " senior psychology major Dave Hetterscheidt said. The Wolverine ' s went on to beat the Redhawks with a score of 43-10. Once the students and alumni managed to peel themselves away from the beer and grilled hamburgers and hotdogs, the game itself topped off every football Saturday. Having traversed their way through the crowded streets towards the Big House, fans finally got to sit or, more likely, stand during the three or four hours of snaps, passes, blocks, and, of course, Michigan touchdowns. " At my first football game, I was so amazed. I screamed the whole time and lost my voice for a week, " first-year pre-med student Scott Vizzi said. Even though Michigan did not always win, the love and excitement for the game remained strong. Fans not only lootball Saturdays Senior psychology major Lesley Weitekamp and senior psychology major Dave Hetterscheidt shoot ping pong balls in to the opposing team ' s cups during a game of beer pong at a tailgate party on 934 State Street.

The group was vcased during the Ann Arbor Blues and Jazz Festival ran from September 24 - October 3, 2004. The c-long festival was headlined by Kermit Ruffins, a Orleans native, and featured both local artists as well siting acts. It was comprised of nightly events, most of :h were inexpensive, while others were completely free large. The show culminated on the weekend with a stage outdoor festival, open to the entire community. njazz group " Tumbao, " " Detroit Blues Women, " and a Charles tribute were among the acts heard. the alternative crowd, there was no better venue in i than the Blind Pig.

" We ' re always glad to get exposure at the Pig. Plenty of students come out on Tuesday showcase nights and we get a lot of support from them, " senior English major and Clarified Butter guitarist Dustin McMahon said. On Wednesdays, the bravest of students hit the Heidelburg for karaoke night. A favorite spot among Glee Club members, the German-themed restaurant, club, and bar allowed students to let go of their inhibitions. Students belted out the words to 80s classics like Def Leopard ' s " Pour Some Sugar on Me, " all with the knowledge that they still had to get up and attend class in the morning. " A good time is always a given at the Heidelberg. It ' s a small place, but that makes for a friendly, intimate environment. It certainly gives us a chance to hang out together in a more relaxed setting, without all the fanfare of a performance, " junior psychology major and Men ' s Glee Club vice-president Andrew Pickens said. No matter what their inclination, be it a concert at the newly-renovated Hill Auditorium or taking in the sounds of a street-corner musician, students in Ann Arbor were constantly able to partake in the varied music scene, whether listening or as part of the performance. music scene A student spends time reading for class on the lawn of the Diag. During the fall and spring, the Diag was a popular place for students to catch up with schoolwork or friends during their free time. L. Worcester photo located at the center of the University, the Diag was the heart of student activity. Throughout the day, the Diag swarmed with students studying, laying out in the sun, or playing a game of frisbee. Sophomore psychology major Amber Farrington said, " The Diag has so many people there because it ' s a great place to go sit outside and study and because groups are set up doing their activities. " Integral to the Diag ' s character were the many squirrels that always played tag or begged for food. Sophomore mechanical and aerospace engineering major Jennifer Sheffield said, " The squirrels on the Diag are totally awesome. Once I tried to feed one a piece of Winterfresh gum. The squirrel actually ate it. I like how they are so friendly with us. " The Diag was also home to many student activities. At the beginning of the year, one of the Diag ' s biggest activities, Festifall, took place. Student organizations set up tables to advertise to first-year students and others looking for a new way to get involved on campus. The tables were spread out from Angell Hall to the Chemistry Building. First-year aerospace engineering major Rob Hoschner said, " There ' s nothing like being bombarded by 20 different groups that all want you to do opposite things. " On the middle of the Diag laid the historical brass " M. " There was the myth that if a student stepped on the " M " before taking his or her first blue book exam, then the student would fail it. Many superstitious first-year students could be seen dodging, even jumping, over the " M. " As winter came, traffic on the Diag slowed during the day. It was not surprising that as the weather became more frigid, students chose to stay indoors whenever possible, limiting the amount of outdoor walking time they had. After a long Michigan winter, nothing marked the start of spring more than the first day of people out on the Diag again. The grass was greener and short-sleeved shirts could be seen instead of the endless seas of North Face fleeces popular among students. The Diag was the one place on campus where everyone could come together while doing a million different things at once. Junior industrial and operations engineering major Lenny Vaz said, " The Diag is like no other. Good looking girls, preaching psychos, or fat squirrels - you ' re bound to find at least one of those at any given time of the day or night.

Many bars on campus offered special deals on drinks throughout the week, keeping bartenders busy on more than just weekends. Tedjasukmana photo Sophomore Art Design student Lauren Nordhougen refills the milk station in the Stockwell dining hall. Working in the dining hall, as well as at the front desk of residence halls, was especially convenient for students who lived in the same building. Tedjasukmana photo T he University was one of the most expensive public schools in the country. Add to the tuition price, housing, food, gas, and miscellaneous items, and students had the possibility of being in debt for years. So, how did University students prevent that from happening? They got a job. Some of the best jobs on campus allowed students to earn great money and to get homework done. A good job that accomodated students ' workloads was that of a staff member at the Campus Information Center (CIC) on the first floor of the Union. Staff members served as students ' endless resource for a variety of important campus related questions. Junior biology and Italian major Andrew Johnson said, " It ' s nice here because the job gives you the ability to gain a good knowledge of the campus as well as learn skills that can be used later in life. " Working at CIC was never a boring job, though. Jennifer McGowen, assistant director of the CIC, noted that she has had a handful of bizarre questions, including, " Where can I donate my body for money? " Another interesting job on campus that never was short of excitement was working for the Michigan Union Ticket Office (MUTO). Students who worked at MUTO were responsible for helping people get tickets to various performances and letting students know when certain artists were coming to town. " I love this job, " junior psychology major Shanna Williams said. " I get to work in a cool environment with awesome employees. " About her favorite part of the job, Williams said, " Every person at MUTO finds out about events before any students do, which lets us be on the cutting edge of knowing things. " However, the job often got stressful, especially when big names like Michael Moore came to campus. Williams said, " When tickets went on sale for Michael Moore, the line was around the Mug and we were sold out within seven hours. " On the other hand, if you were trying to stay away from desk jobs, junior political science major Lisa Kohl snagged the perfect job working for the football team. Although it was probably one of the more unknown jobs on campus, it qualified as one of the best for Kohl. She spent her hours in the football office logging in tapes and helping out the coaches in anyway possible. " ! love working for the football team; I have had a chance to really get to know the coaches on a personal level, " Kohl said. Additionally, Kohl received 50-yard line tickets and was always up-to- date on team statistics and news. Whatever one ' s interest may have been on campus, there was always a way to find a job that not only paid the bill but also provided a little entertainment. campus jobs A lava lamp lights up bottles of alcohol at the Necto bar.Although alcohol was one of the more popular " activities " on campus, there were plenty of opportunities to have a good time without drinking. Tedjasuktnana photo A nn Arbor became a completely different city when Thursday night rolled around. The dorms buzzed with the sounds of younger students talking about the hottest parties that were scheduled to happen on campus that weekend, while older students got prepared for their night at the bar. Whether it was waiting outside a club in downtown Ann Arbor or walking to a house party on campus, all the University students seemed to be out on the streets every weekend. It was like the stress of the past week just needed to be forgotten. Junior industrial and operational engineering major Meghana Atreya said, " I think the parries totally rock. I mean it ' s like everyone shares the same grief that you have during the week, and then they all forget it when they come out on Saturdays. " The nightlife in Ann Arbor was more than just clubs and fraternity parties. Main Street, located in downtown Ann Arbor, had many restaurants and bars with a wide variety of food and drinks to satisfy everyone ' s tastes. Indian, Chinese, and Italian were some of the food choices people enjoyed. The sight of people walking up and down the brightly lit streets and bopping to the music was something that brought this college town to life. " I love Main Street. It ' s always buzzing with people at night. Some people sit outside on the planters and read while some people just listen to the music and catch up on the week and the last weekend with their friends, " senior computer science and math major Shalin Saini said. Main Street also had a lot of jazz clubs which featured music that soothed the hip-hop ears. " I love hip-hop, but then again these jazz clubs just bring out a totally different aspect of music which is so calming and relaxing that it makes you want to just get yourself up on the dance floor, " said Shalin. There were also a lot of cultural and religious organizations on campus that had offered festivities at night. These ranged from ballroom dancing to the Arabic belly dancing and from the Indian garbas to the Mexican fiesta dances. The Michigan Union and the Michigan League had their rooms booked way in advance for these activities. Most were open, free for all, and some even held events in the form of fundraisers. All in all, whether it was a hip-hop party at Necto or a cultural dance at the Union, the nightlife in Ann Arbor was exciting and exhilarating. Students got their share of fun and laughs before heading back to a week of classes, group projects, and meetings.

Most landlords did not pllow dogs in their homes and apartments, causing the animals to be a special treat to many on campus. Tedjasukmana photo s, ' tudents owned a plethora of different members of the animal kingdom, ranging from snakes, fish, and other reptiles to ferrets, rabbits, cats, and dogs. Some animals belonged not only to one student, but to a whole house. " Last year our house had a cat named Felix. Everyone looked after him, and during parties we made sure to keep him safe in someone ' s room. But we lost him one day at the Arb when we took him on a picnic, and we still haven ' t found him. I hope he ' s okay, " senior Art Design student Ben Vanderveen said about his former house pet. For many who owned larger animals, finding housing that would allow them to bring their pets with them to school often proved difficult. " I had to look at a lot of places before I could find one that let me have my dog. I think many of the near- campus realtors don ' t allow for dogs or cats because they think students are irresponsible. I found a place on Main Street that let me have him. It ' s a little farther from campus, but it ' s worth it, " said senior economics major Fernando Duran-Balsa. Many Ann Arbor realtors charged a fee for pets such as cats and birds. Unfortunately for the canine lover, most realtors did not allow dogs. For students living on campus, pets were not an option and they were forced to leave their pets at home: no pets were allowed in any of the University ' s residence halls. However, the dorm room walls and doors were nonetheless decorated with photos of students ' fluffy friends, showing to everyone that they were well missed. For those who missed their pets too much, there was always the option of having pets visit. " I really wanted my dog Murphy to come visit for the weekend, but my mom wouldn ' t let me take him. So one morning I dog- napped him before my mom got up, " junior Art Design and Kinesiology student Jen O ' Brien said. Regardless of what kind of pets students owned, or how the animals became a part of their owner ' s lives, the animals were well-loved. rets c on v ampus A student catches up on some reading while her boyfriend ' s pet snake Lois rests on the next chair.

L. Proux photo Lc iguor ptores hirsty? Just grab a drink from one of the many liquor stores conveniently placed all over campus. No matter where on campus one lived or spent the day, odds were one passed a liquor store. On State Street, Packard, East University or Main Street, it was hard to miss the big signs that announced the newest beer specials. So where did students choose to buy their alcohol? The choice of where to buy alcohol from often depended on location and proximity to students ' homes. With so many liquor stores right outside of campus, many students simply picked the closest store. " We live a block away from Jimmy ' s Sergeant Pepper, so we usually buy our kegs there. It ' s nice when we ' re having a party and need a quick refill, " senior general studies major and pre-dental student David Pechersky said. Sometimes it was a matter of who actually checked for fake IDs. " Village Corner will jack anything that appears fake, even if it ' s real, don ' t try them, " Pechersky said. It was well known that Village Corner on South Forest and South University was strict on their fake ID policy; IDs lined the walls behind the cash register from failed attempts at alcohol purc hases. Some students thoroughly enjoyed their liquor store trips because of interactions with the owners and workers. " At night sometimes, Jimmy ' s owners will be wasted, sometimes even so drunk that they are laughing hysterically and ask us why we ' re laughing, " Pechersky said. " They knew me at Campus Corner, they recognized my face every time I went, and welcomed me, literally inviting me to come back for more. They always knew what I wanted, and would always ask if I would like ' the usual ' , " junior Art Design student Colby Polonsky said. Regardless of the reasons to buy alcohol from one store on campus or another, students found their purchases convenient, easy and fun. " I could leave class, and on my walk home, stop in Campus Corner for a case of Red Dog, thirteen dollars of fun in a box, " Polonsky said. At Cafe Ambrosia on Maynard Street, students lounge and focus on their studies. Some professors and GSIs held office hours at Ambrosia during the week because of its convenient location close to Central Campus. Y. Granata photo S i tudy bpots Jong with partying, sports watching and participating in campus events and organizations, studying was a typical item on every students to-do list seeing as how it was the main reason that everyone was here. The University housed several libraries that were easily accessible for all students. The Shapiro Undergraduate Library, most commonly known as the UGLi, was perhaps the most popular among the students. The UGLi was connected to the Harlan Hatcher Graduate Library, which had numerous reference books to support the UGLi ' s collection, and was home to the infamous stacks that so many students hear about upon their entrance to the University. Other libraries included the law school and business school libraries. These libraries often inspired undergraduates to study with University graduate students who were already pursuing a career in law or business. It was not only the libraries that attracted the ever-busy students. There were many cafes on campus, which were always full of people having group meetings, doing a bit of work with friends, or studying alone with a cup of coffee as a refresher. In addition, some of the classrooms in Angell Hall and other buildings were kept unlocked for the students. " The study scene was pretty good. You could always find someone to study with, just like you can always find someone to party with. It depends on the subject where I used to study. Programming, the Media Union now called the Dude; math, empty classroom in Angell Hall; physics, office hours; miscellaneous or social studying, UGLi!, " sophomore computer engineering major, Katie Tamarelli said. When asked what Tamarelli would change she said, " I wish I could make the Dude closer and easier to get to. At night and on weekends it just takes so long to get there. " " The Media Union was like my second home. But I preferred the University Towers study lounge the most. The group study rooms in the UGLi were super cool too, " junior bio-medical engineering major Arjun Khullar said. Though students from nearby towns often went home over the weekends to get some studying done away from the hustle and bustle of campus, there were plenty of places on campus where you could see different people studying a variety of subjects. And the one unbeatable choice was one ' s own personal study room, his or her own dorm or apartment. . A group of four friends get work done on their laptops in the Union. The Union offered a number of different places for students to study, from the MUG and Tap Room in the basement, to the upstairs study rooms and Amer ' s Restaurant. Y.

Leonard photo Reli religion had subtle ways and not so subtle ways of being around campus. From a simple cross or Star of David hanging around a person ' s neck to the Jews for Jesus campaign that hit campus in September, there was no way to totally avoid religion. Students were continually bombarded by others in the Diag about which religion to choose or what not to follow. Students had their choice of student groups including Hillel to the Muslim Student ' s Association to Campus Crusade for Christ. For some, religion was a place to meet new people and to gather to share their beliefs. Lindsay Bouchard,junior biology major, found her niche at St, Mary ' s Student Parish. Bouchard said, " St. Mary ' s is a wonderful sub-community of the University of Michigan that provides lots of community service programs, but also a great place to meet other students with similar morals and beliefs as I have. It ' s been a very supportive and enjoyable resource for me here. " Hillel offered many different activities and events for the University ' s Jewish students. Offering everything from religious services to kosher meals to any of their 25 student organizations, there was a place for a student if they so wished. Among other religions on campus, the Muslim Student ' s Association (MSA) stood out to the many Islam students at the University. Islam is the second fastest growing religion in the world. MSA provided a place for the Muslim students to gather and talk about their religion. The students involved did community service and other projects. These groups and many others including New Life Church, Indonesian Christian Church, All Nations Campus ministry, and University Lutheran Chapel provided a community and a support system for students. Among the crazy hours held by students at the University, these communities allowed a place for students to come, relax and enjoy the company of people with similar believes as themselves. Taking in a evening mass at St. Mary ' s or going to the CCRB night held by MSA or totally ignoring the man of the Diag reading the Bible, students had a choice of how religion impacted their life of the course of the year.

Tedjasukmana photo C-i( ampus Dtyles L ike most large college towns, the University campus had a large selection of clothing stores at which to shop. The range of stores covered a wide spectrum. There was anything from 1950s vintage to camping gear to BCBG jeans to Wolverine apparel, all basically within a five minute walk from each other. One of the most unique stores on campus was called Primitive Vintage. Primitive opened on July 14, 2004, and was located on South State Street, right in the center of everything. The fact that Primitive was located in a basement rather than a storefront made it a little more difficult to spot from the street, however, the stairway of the store delivered some semi-loud retro music that helped draw as much attention to the store downstairs as possible. Co-owner of Primitive Ryan Dawson described the stores clothing as, " cool, hip, colorful and groovy. [The clothes] span anywhere from the 50s to the 80s. " Dawson described the customers as versatile. " If people know what they want they can find it, but we also get a lot of browsers. " Primitive sold everything from $2 bracelets to $8 ties to $12 vinyl shirts to $35 patent leather go-go boots. On the other hand, there were stores like YCI, Yerchos Clothing Inc. Located on South University, YCI was one of the three major boutiques on campus. A YCI employee described the available clothing as " high end designer, basically a lot of denim. " Unlike the great sale prices of Primitive, the jeans that YCI sold cost around $150. YCI also sold handbags, jewelry, dresses, shirts, and shoes, also for equally steep prices. If shoppers went to Primitive to get bargain deals on retro threads, then shoppers would go to YCI to pay high amounts for the most distinguished brand names. Of course, not all clothing stores on campus were as extreme as Primitive or YCI. There were the middle ground stores such as Urban Outfitters and Steve Barry ' s, where shoppers could find decent clothing for decent costs. No matter whether a shopper ' s preferences were based on high fashion or low prices, there was undoubtedly somewhere on campus where anyone could shop and be satisfied.

The restaurant offered about 12 items on the menu, as well as a quaint dining area. C. Leonard photo very year at the University was different. New people, new classes but most of all, new restaurants. Everyone like d dorm food, but once in a while who wouldn ' t like to go and grab a bite to eat at the newest restaurant in downtown? This past year, Ann Arbor had a lot of little restaurants set up their eateries in the downtown as well as the State street area. Some of the more famous places were Noodles and Company, located on State Street, and Teriyaki Grill, located on Williams Street. These restaurants added to the lovely blend of authentic cuisine which one could find in the University area. " Noodles and Company was by far my favorite restaurant this year. It was so close to all my classes that I could eat lunch or dinner there and not have to worry about walking back and forth from home. Cooking can be a drag sometimes, and when I did not feel like cooking I just went to Noodles and Company and had their amazing Thai curry soup. Their service was also really good, " junior pre-pharmacy major Seema Shah said. Another famous restaurant was the so-called " new " Jimmy Johns. This Jimmy Johns was set right on State Street and was almost always packed with people. This restaurant had caused quite a bit of disappointment when it was opened because it had replaced the celebrated Familigia restaurant. But, only two weeks into the semester, there wasn ' t a day when people did not go their to either meet a friend in between classes or grab a quick bit before running to work. On the Indian food front, Khana Khazana gained a lot of popularity. " I loved Khana Khazana. There were a lot of new Indian restaurants the year before last, but last year ' s Khana Khazana changed the Indian food scene. Being from India I was very picky on what kind of Indian food I ate, but Khana Khazana absolutely fitted all of my needs, " junior bio-medical engineering major Anirudh Mehta said. Buffalo Wild Wings, located on State Street, was one of the larger additions to Ann Arbor.

Butterfield Company, which operated several motion picture and vaudeville theaters in the state of Michigan, the Michigan Theater had opened to the public on January 5, 1928. The Michigan Theater combined living history with a singular dedication to the finest film and live entertainment. It presented specialty films, served as the home to the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra, and offered the " Not Just for Kids " series of live-on-stage programs for children and their families. The State Theater also presented movies which involved an appreciation for the art in film. At the same time, the State Theater also had a special screening of the " Princess Bride " at 12am one night for many surprised students who went out for a fun Friday night. Other than the State Theater and the Michigan Theater there were two other theaters near campus. These were the Quality 16 Theater and the Showcase Cinemas. The quality 16 Theater, also known as the Goodrich Quality Theater, was located on Jackson Road which was about a 10 minute drive from central campus. The Showcase Cinema was right near the Meijer on Carpenter Road and was also about a 10 minute drive from Central Campus. Both these theaters had more than 20 screens and showed almost all the new movies. Students often preferred going to the Showcase Cinema and Quality 16 rather than the theaters on campus because of the selection. " ! always went to Showcase on Fridays to watch the new releases. I ' m not a big fan of art movies but I occasionally do go to the theaters on campus too. I also shop quite a bit at Meijer and my roommates and I usually stop by showcase on our way home, " sophomore pre-med major Neha Sekhri said. In 2003 the Michigan Theater hosted the Indian American Students Association ' s annual cultural show. The show proved to be a complete success as people from all over came to watch it. Cultural events such as this were not uncommon for the The Michigan Theater which often hosted a number of cultural events and other documentary showings. movie theaters o, x The Bell Tower peeks over the top of the State Theater on State Street.

Neff photo I t was mid November and the weather was still very nice. You could feel the fall changing slowly into the Michigan winter. This year ' s winter, to the joy of all the students, was late to arrive. The sun shined all through October and beat the chills of winter. Winter arrived right after Thanksgiving and from international students to Californians who had never seen snow in their life, the campus was fill ed with a roar of enthusiasm. Winter on campus was like a five-month event. Students ' activities changed and their attitudes changed. " When I got in to U of M, the first thing my brother (a U of M graduate from EECS) said to me was, ' you better be prepared to face the fierce winter!! ' I always knew that it was going to be very cold and there was going to be a lot of snow and I thought to myself: Yeah. OK. How bad can it be? After I came here and met new people, the first thing they would tell me when they realized this was my first time here was ' You better be ready. The winter ' s here are really something! " ' first-year MCDB Masters program student Kanchanajayram said. The snow that covered Ann Arbor was like a gorgeous white blanket. The weather was windy and chilly and the fall colors on the trees were still around, making everything look so beautiful. There were various snowball fights on Palmer Field, and the dorm hall councils arranged a lot of activities such as sledding in the Arb and ice-skating in Yost Arena in addition to the annual South Quad versus East Quad snowball fight. During the winter the University had its annual basketball season. Though it was so cold outside, the students ' enormous school spirit enabled them to walk all the way to south of campus and cheer on the basketball players. The winter semester was much different from the fall semester. Hardly any students took 9 a.m. classes since the weather was too cold and it made everyone lazier than before. There were times when students would move their group meetings from the library to their warm and cozy dorm room. But, all in all, it was a wonderful time of year, and the students were very happy building snowmen and snow angels. " ! knew I was going to enjoy the first snowfall, with everything around me being covered in fluffy white snow and with the Christmas spirit and the decorations and all.

They were noticeable and yet they were so much a part of campus that they had become unnoticeable at the very same rime. The mural on the side of Potbelly ' s Restaurant on State Street, for instance, brazenly displayed cartoonish and colorful illustrations of characters such as Woody Allen. However, no one, Potbelly ' s staff and current students alike, seemed to know how or why the mural came to be. " I think that it is a really interesting mural, but I am confused as to why Woody Allen is in it, " junior communications major Alicia Greenberg said.The mural was painted in the 1980s, far before much of the student body came to Ann Arbor. It had become something that is unquestionably accepted as an everyday part of Michigan life. On the other hand, there were some murals on campus that the University had specifically made a point to highlight. The 14 painted murals in the North Lobby of the Graduate Library were examples of some of these pieces of art. The University website proudly stated that these murals were ' Vecently restored to their original bright colors, and have been present since the building opened in 1920. [The murals] contain a quote from Thomas a Kempis ' De Imitatione Christi: ' Una vox librorum sed non omnes aeque informal. " ' The translation of this quotation meant " The voice of books is one but informeth not all alike. " Although many students walked by these murals and their quotation with not much more than a second glance, like all of the other artwork on campus, over the years they had become very much a meaningful and valuable component of the University atmosphere. In the winter, ice sculptures were found around campus, from Main Sreet to the Diag. Occasionally, passersby could witness the sculptures being carved. " We don ' t have ice scultpures where I ' m from in L.A. I think they ' re just fabulous. I ' m really going to miss them when I ' m gone, " senior computer science major Adam Herscher said. A new addition to artistic Ann Arbor was painted fire hydrants found around town. Each hydrant was painted with a different theme, and added color and charm to people ' s daily walks. Done as a school project, the hydrants allowed students to express their creativity with an ordinary medium. campus art Fire hydrants located on South University Avenue in front of the School of Social Work, and at the corner of Maynard and Liberty Streets outside of Scorekeepers Bar add charm to Ann Arbor ' s sidewalks.

Along with Ulrich ' s and the Union Bookstore, Michigan Book Supply was one of the most dependable sources for purchasing class textbooks. L.

Lines were expected at all bookstores on campus at the beginning of both fall and winter terms. L. Proux photo Students wait in line at Shaman Drum Bookstore on State Street. Shaman Drum was infamous for having long lines that wrapped through the entire store and down the staircase. L. Proux photo classes began each semester, many students felt the returning pressure of early mornings, late nights and much more work upon their shoulders. To make matters worse, students had to come to terms with the fact that, at some point or another, they would have to buy books. Students had to bravely and patiently face the long lines, sometimes slow service, and wallet-draining prices in order to show up for their first, or at least second, class with book in hand. Others, in contrast, decided to prolong book-buying until a later date in the semester, or opt to purchase books online, knowing that at these bargain prices there was the common risk of books arriving later than expected and or needed. There were four major book stores on campus: Shaman Drum, Michigan Book Supply, Ulrich ' s and the Union Bookstores. Students found that there was a discrepancy between the convenience of each of these stores. Junior kinesiology student Elynnor Pavlovics and junior political science and English major Ramya Raghavan were both in agreement that Shaman Drum was the least popular of the campus options. Pavlovics said that, " it ' s too small, the lines are always down the block, and it ' s difficult to find things there. " Raghavan agreed that " the line is always out the door, so you have to wait in the cold, and the set up is really confusing so you can ' t go back into a room after you ' ve left it. They make you go all the way back around. " In comparison, Pavlovics believed that Ulrich ' s, although the lines were long as well, were able to better cater to students needs. " There are always a lot of employees around to help you find the books and supplies you need. Lines are always going to be long but things move pretty quickly there, " Pavlovics said. Similarly, Raghavan, who was a Resident Advisor in East Quad, agreed that Ulrich ' s, " has a pretty good selection and the lines aren ' t too long, also it ' s the closest one to East Quad. " Raghavan brought up another valid issue of book shopping: not only were books pricey but they were also heavy. Students did not want to have to carry their heave bags of books farther than necessary, so the closer a bookstore to one ' s house or residence hall, the better. If a student truly did not have the stomach to face a campus bookstore at the beginning of the semester, there were other options such as campus libraries, websites such as, or sometimes other smaller stores in Ann Arbor such as Dawn Treader. However, with a great deal of patience and luck, students managed to make the campus bookstores work for them. book stores Participants in the 2004 IASA Cultural Show, Av noosh, dance in Hill Auditorium on November 1 9.

Tedjasukmana photo FEATURES By Connie Chang and Matthew Dunne trending a University such as the University of Michigan, students could expect a wide array of special events, guest speakers, and newsworthy events and advancements. The business school made national headlines as it received the largest donation in University history - $100 million. Headlining speakers such as Noam Chomsky and Michael Moore came to campus, attracting overwhelmingly large crowds. The University had athletes in the summer Olympic Games in Athens; and the campus was passionately active and divided during the Presidential Election. The housing department was overwhelmed as they had 500 extra students to accomodate, the prestigious Marshall Scholarship was bestowed upon a Michigan student, and Hash Bash returned to campus for another year. Eyes on the Iraq War and the tsunami devastation in Eastern Asia established groups on campus to get students involved in relief efforts. Whether a student took note of one or all of these events, they created another remarkable year at the University, encompasing aspects from around campus, across the country, and around the world. LEO and the Administration Engage in a Tug-pf-War By Jenny Welbel riere were approximately 1,300 lecturers on the University of Michigan campuses, 800 at the Ann rfbor campus alone. In fact, according to the Acaderpit Human Resources Services, lecturers taught abjotft 28 percent of all undergraduate student credifnours at the University, 32.5 percent of the freshmen and sophomore classes, and 23 percent of junior and senior classes. The lecturers constantly contributed their knowledge and experience to improve undergraduate learning. Unfortunately, lecturers felt that they were deeply unappreciated and undervalued by the University community. Consequently, the Lecturers Employment Organization (LEO) formed twoandahalfyearsago in anefforttoimprove overall teaching conditions. For five months, LEO, which was comprised of non-tenure instructional staff, negotiated job security, salary, and benefits. " Lecturers are simply hired semester by semester: we don ' t have any transparent hiring guidelines, " English lecturer Ian Fulcher said. Lecturers were seeking a wage that reflected their expertise and experience in addition to comprehensive benefits. As of April 8, an agreement had not been reached and a one day walk-out was organized. For die entire day, LEO members stood outside campus buildings while rallying students and voicing their concerns in an attempt to get the administration to listen to their needs. " We are hoping that a one day picket causes attention, " American culture GSI Tyler Cornelius said. " Students are our number one priority and the University is harming students. " Fulcher agreed, " We chose to teach undergraduates; we care about them, which is why we do this. " Students, professors, and GSIs rallied behind LEO by either not going to class or by not holding class. " I think it was a great thing for the lecturers to do. They are the ones who are really teaching us, but they are not getting the things they deserve, " biology major Marisa Weisel said. As April 8 neared to a close, an agreement had still not been reached between LEO and the administration. However, Bonnie Hollafan, president of LEO, acknowledged that, " There will need to be a give and take for everyone to be happy. " On June 16, 2004, the tug-of-war between LEO and the administration came to a halt when a contract was finally signed. The three-year contract allowed lecturers on a one or two level to be hired per term for the first three years, and after a successful performance review, they could be hired on an annual basis. Additionally, LEO and the administration agreed on improved benefits along with minimum full time salaries. " We feel it was a good contract and a good process, " Hallofan said.

Worcester photo s Housing Crunch Hinders Undergraduate Livjng By Jenny Welbel u niversity housing typically had room for approximately 8,560 students in residence halls. However, a the start of the Fall 2004 semester, the University searched for ways to provide housing for an extra 700 students. The administration attributed these . additional numbers to students who resigned leases toJfve in residence halls along with a larger number ofirtcoming freshmen. Consequently, there was a shortage of spaces to fill this need for incoming stud In order to fill this need, the administration worked very hard to create additional living areas. Many community spaces were converted to larger than average student rooms, while guest facilities in Oxford Housing were turned into student residences. Incoming students were also assigned to Baits housing, which resulted in 30 percent of the freshmen class being located on North Campus. As a result, the current upperclass Baits residents were then offered the opportunity to relocate to an apartment at the same cost in Northwood I-III or were given the opportunity to break their contract. " It ' s not fair that sophomores cannot even live in dorms sophomore year; they are the ones who should have guaranteed housing, " first-year molecular and cellular biology major Melissa Szafir said. With the large increase of first years, dorms are overcrowded and students are either crammed into tiny roor ls or are the fortunate ones living in lounges. " It iyridiculous. Everything is overcrowded in the dorms, there are lines everywhere; I even had to wait to do my laundry, " Szafir said. First-year student Rachel Saffitz, who is living in a converted lounge, agreed. " ! feel bad that I decided last minute to go to Michigan and got a better room than someone who had always known he was going here. " The irony of the situation was that with the change in the University application, most students expected that less people would have applied, but instead the reverse occurred. In early October it was announced that the Frieze Building, which was home to LSA academic departments such as Communication Studies and Film and Video Studies, would be knocked down to create room for a new residence hall, North Quad. Unlike other residence halls on campus, North Quad would feature suite-style living for upperclass students. It was also announced that current residence halls would undergo renovations and upgrading, particularly in the dining halls, to keep facilities up to date with other universities. O O v_ Two residents of West Quad spend time in their bedroom, which was once a lounge. Many residence halls across campus, including Stockwell and Markley, converted lounges to bedrooms in order to house the increased amount of students that requested housing. J.

Despite protests, what used to be family housing was turned into student housing to make room for the increase in students. J. Neff photo Take Your Professor to Lunch oert Fow A few years ago, hanging out with a professor outside of class may have seemed highly unlikely. However, a nev program at the University made this opportunity readily available to all students. Created during the 2003-2004 school year by the joint efforts of tha lichigan Union i l of Representatives, Rackham Student Government, the Office of the Provost, and the Division of Student Affairs, the " Take Your Professor GSI to Lunch " program was a huge success. " [The program] was an initiative to create more opportunity for students to interact with faculty in a non-academic environment, " Director of the Union Audrey Schwimmer said. Students received an e-mail from E. Royster Harper, the vice president of student affairs, informing them of the program. They could choose to have lunch with their professors one-on-one or as a group with as many as three other students, as long as a GSI or professor was part of the group too. The lunches, which were paid for using the free lunch coupons, were available any weekday throughout the month. Yet, students were limited to only one lunch per month. Any student, as well as any professor or GSI, was eligible to participate in the lunch program. To initiate a lunch, all the student needed to do was get a lunch coupon from the Union, League, or Pierpont Commons and simply invite the faculty member of their choice out for a meal. Students were encouraged to act quickly as there was a limited number of lunch coupons available. Almost entirely positive, the feedback from students was helpful in making this program as successful as possible. " The students really enjoy the interaction [with the professors] and are surprised with the camaraderie and conversation with the faculty, " Schwimmer said. Schwimmer also noted that the program enjoyed a nice representation across campus, including a strong showing from all schools and colleges, even those on North Campus. " I chose to have lunch with my professor because I loved the subject and class a lot, " senior political science major Dave Omenn said. Omenn also had a friend in the political science 486 class with whom he included in his lunch invitation. " The lunch provided a non-office hours environment where you don ' t have to talk about class problems and material. There is a neutral ground, " Omenn said. The success of the Take Your Professor GSI to Lunch program both this year and last ensured the high probability of many more lunches with the University ' s intellectual leaders for years to come. O O Two students have lunch with their GSI at the U-Club on the second floor of the Union. The " Take Your Professor GSI to Lunch " program was created during the 2003-2004 school year and was a huge success. C.

Designed and constructed by Alexander Lieberman, the red painted steel sculpture was acquired in 1996. L. Worcester photo Hidden Masterpieces By Nicole Mammo o, n a typical day of class, many University students had the opportunity to see the amazing Daedalus, Begob, Pumas and the Cube at least once. They were not referred to by name, and these and other sculptures on campus often went unnoticed by many. Each year at freshman orientation, hundreds of new students were introduced to these and other works around the University, but only briefly and with little emphasis on their historical backgrounds. Their presence on campus, although not sufficiently appreciated, was always essential. The beloved Cube was created by Bernard Rosenthal, a University alumnus (class of 1936) and sculptor of geometric objects. Although it was constructed from Cor- Ten Steel, the Cube was fashioned in a manner that allows it to revolve on its axis when pushed. A hole in the middle allowedforcreativeandcra2y antics by students. " My friends and I used to try to spin the Cube, while one of us tried to sit in that little hole, " an anonymous LSA student said. Other famous structures on Central Campus were the Pumas that guarded the front entrance of the Ruthvens Museum Building. Pumas was designed by Carleton Watson Angell and placed at the entrance of the museum in 1940. Angell, a sculptor and artist of other areas of the building, chose pumas since they were once native to Michigan. Sunday Morning in Deep Waters was best known as the fountain that new students traditionally took their socks and shoes off to walk across during orientation. Daedalus, just outside the art museum, was inspired by the Greek hero of the same name who escaped from Crete on wings. This structure had the ' effect of a serenity that is completely at odds with its size. " The area that the sculpture resides in was chosen so that the flow of pedestrians would " completely surround the sculpture, allowing people to look at it from every angle, as the piece changes dramatically, depending on the angle from which you look at it. " North Campus, although mostly visited by engineering, art, musical theater and dance students, was home to Continued on page 75 Located at the south end of the Reflecting Pool on North Campus was the Indexer II by artist Kenneth Snelson.The piece was constructed from steel cables and polished stainless steel tubes. L. Worcester photo The Cube, by Bernard Tony Rosenthal, stands as one of Ann Arbor ' s most recog- nizable and beloved structures. Located next to the Michigan Union, the piece was a gift from the class of 1 965. L. Worcester photo i The Puma s by Carleton Watson Angell guard the entrance in front of the Ruthven Museum. These black terrazo pumas were two of the University ' s most recognizable icons. L. Proux photo Continued from page 72 several of these lovely and eccentric sculptures as well, including Begob, Onus, the SAI Sundial and Summaries of Arithmetic Through Dust, Including Writing Not Yet Printed. Over 50 years ago, the engineering class of 1945 and NROTC classes (beginning with the class of 1942) allowed the University to have Begob. Created by Alexander Lieberman, Begob was placed on the east side of the Lurie Engineering Center and was referred to as that " red thing " by many students. According to the artist, the proportions of this piece reflect the " two crucial elements for a sculpture to be successful. Lieberman described these as the use of scale and unique form, " the form created by the repetition of shapes; it is the repetition that gives the object a sense of rhythm. " Onus, a bronze circular structure was brought to the east side of Pierpont Commons in 1966 by artist Jon Rush. The Sundial (also known as the Armillary) was donated by the Sigma Alpha Iota, an international music fraternity for women. It has rested at the edge of the pond near the Moore School of Music since 1971 and allowed for an interesting sight for students in the area. Perhaps most eccentric, however, was Alice Aycock ' s structure on the south side of the H.H. Dow Building: Summaries of Arithmetic Through Dust, Including Writing Not Yet Printed. Aycock described her piece as one that attempts to " explain various aspects of the universe, for example, the scatteringof particles, models of spiral galaxies, the curvatures of space... forms [that are] pervasive in the art and culture of many societies both past and present. " Other amazing sights that students passed by on most football Saturday afternoons included the majestic American Eagle, which has watched over Champions Plaza of Michigan Stadium since 1950 and the Circle of Champions. The Circle, acquired in 1997 as a result of many contributions from students, alumni and other supporters, was created as a way to remember the supporters. It was created as a way to remember the numerous conference and national titles that the University ' s teams have acquired over the years. Dozens of sculptures, thanks to many talented people, contributed to the beauty of the campus, despite the fact that they were not always noticed and have remained a part of the University ' s rich history. OOC Summaries of Arithmetic Through Dust, Including Writing by Alice Aycock was located on North Campus on the south side of the H.H. Dow building. This intricate masterpiece was a gift of the engineering class in 1933 and was constructed of aluminum and steel painted white and is an abstract, non-representational form. L. Proux photo I 1 I President Coleman Addresses Campus Issues n September 20, 2004, the University ' s president, Mary Sue Coleman, addressed the University community about the recent budget cuts and future plans. Overall, Coleman remained optimistic as she discussed many recent issues that have hit campus. As Coleman said, " With the help and advice of many in our community, I have established plans and initiatives that will allow us to strengthen the distinction of the University of Michigan. " The address began with a discussion of budget cuts. Coleman mentioned that the University experienced over $43 million in cuts over the last two years. With the help of donors and careful choices about money, the University was able to keep The Michigan Difference campaign going strong. The Michigan Difference campaign had main goals that included sustaining academic excellence, understanding our community and world, building learning communities, and creating more access to the University ' s academic quality. " Many leaders of philanthropic, business, and non-profit organizations have agreed to volunteer their time and energy to help us meet our ambitious goal of $2.5 billion. We have already raised over half that amount, but it will take a lot of work to attract the next billion we need to meet our goal, " Coleman said. Donations helped renovate places such as the Law Quad and the Museum of Art. " These projects are changing the face of our campus, " Coleman said. Eleven new builings and programs were in progress. y Emily DeMarco As Cowman continued, she began to discuss a new project to revamp the residence halls. She did not offer specific details, but said, " Our plans will take years to complete, but will benefit students for generations to come. " A large portion of Coleman ' s address contained a detailed discussion about incoming freshmen applications. Even though it was the largest freshman class, the University encountered many problems. She presented many ways of solving current problems regarding the decrease in minority applications and issues of financial aid. " This year, we are expanding our outreach to schools, are working even more with guidance counselors, and are making constructive adjustments to last year ' s admission forms, " Coleman said. The president stressed the importance of improving financial aid for disadvantaged students. " We cannot afford to lose even one talented student if the only barrier is financial aid, " Coleman said. The University ' s new capital campaign is going to find new ways to provide more scholarships to students of need. With so many projects suddently being put into motion, the University ' s budget crisis was slowly starting to come to an end. As Coleman concluded, " I know that the University of Michigan has the potential to create the programs and possibilities that will move us more rapidly to that day. " O O on " I Q- Mary Sue Coleman addresses the student body on September 20, 2004 in Hill Auditorium.

Tedjasukmana photo Campus Houses Go Up In Flames By April Wong w t are fine, but our house burned down last night around 1 A.M. Don ' t worry!! We ' ll call later. " Junior history major Rachel Hooey sent this text message to a close friend at 10a.m. on Friday, September 3. She and the five other girls of 501 Linden referred to the night as Lindenberg, the night that they watched their house burn down. Coincidentally, it was one of two fires that occurred that same night. The other September 3 fire, an incident unrelated to Lindenberg, set ablaze an apartment complex on Pauline Boulevard. Ann Arbor witnessed two other student housing fires in May and June of 2004 - the A.K. Stevens Cooperative House on South Forest Avenue, and a house on Oakland Avenue. Investigators said that two love seats on the front porch fueled the Oakland fire, which spurred the Ann Arbor City Council to propose a city ordinance that banned all porch couches in the city. However, the ordinance was tabled at a council meeting on August 16 when there were not enough votes to support it. Sheila Perry, a senior Spanish and anthropology major, spent the first half of Welcome Week anxiously awaiting the start of classes. She had moved into her new house the week before and instantly fell in love with the house, her room, and her housemates. She shared the refinished basement with Hooey and sophomore English major Kaitlin MacKenzie, while undecided LSA junior Tara Terpstra, junior mechanical engineering major Caitlin McCarthy, and junior music student Lauren Poluha, had rooms on the second floor. Perry spent much of the week consolidating all her clothes and personal belongings to fit in her new room. Likewise, all the girls had finally uncluttered their house of the standard moving mess and had begun to grow comfortable with their new place. At around 1 A.M. on September 3, Perry stood shoeless across the street from her burning house. She and the other girls who had been in the house safely escaped minutes before it became engulfed in flames. A huge crowd of students - some drunk, some sober - gathered to gawk at the burning house. " They were all really nice to us, because they felt so bad for us, " Perry said of the milling students. " One girl even offered her place for us to crash for awhile. " Perry remembered how incoherent she was that night: " I called my parents, and I just screamed and sobbed into the phone for five minutes before I realized that I still needed to tell them about the fire. " The broad daylight of the next morning revealed the damage that the darkness that the previous night had managed to hide. The house ' s exterior, though still standing, was charred black, and the windows and front door had been boarded up with wood. Random items from inside the house, barely recognizable, were strewn outside. Yellow caution tape encircled the house, warning curious passersby of the danger in getting too close to the rubble. The Red Cross hung up a large banner sign on the porch, recommending the girls to call the organization for disaster relief aid. The damage even extended over to the house next door, melting its aluminum siding. The fire started because of an electrical problem in Perry ' s room. Perry ' s large bunk bed, the bottom part of which was a futon couch, covered an entire wall of her small room. Her comforter, which she kept behind her futon for guests, had smothered an extension cord and sparked the fire. Continued on page 80 The day after the fire, two inspectors search through the remains of the A.K. Stevens Cooperative house on South Forest Avenue. Residents of the damaged houses were allowed to go through the debris for belongings after the sight was cleared by inspectors. J.

L. Proux p Continued from page 78 The girls ' respective insurance companies covered the cost of their belongings, but they endured an immeasurable amount of emotional stress and personal loss because of the fire. " Everything in my room is in ashes, it ' s all dust, " Perry said. " I keep remembering things that I ' ve lost in my room - irreplaceable things like my photo albums from my year abroad in Spain and my home videos from my childhood. Every time I remember something new, my heart just hurts. " The girls ' spirits fluctuated back and forth from shell- shocked and overwhelmed, tearful one minute and laughingthe next. " When somethingthis pathetic happens, you have to joke about it, " Hooey said. " There ' s nothing else that you can do. " This attitude kept them from falling apart despite the trauma. Instead, they showed incredible strength of character, finding housing within a week of the fire (in fact, Perry and Hooey had signed a lease for an apartment the day after Lindenberg) and pulling together in time for the start of fall classes. Hooey and Perry walked into their new apartment on Wilmot Street, and after surveying the area for working smoke detectors and an acceptable fire escape, threw all the items they were carrying in their hands on the floor and declared themselves moved in. They spent the next few days shopping for necessities, a usually enjoyable task that they now dreaded because nearly everything they owned needed to be replaced. " It was just too overwhelming, " Perry said. " There was so much that I had to buy. Plus, in a way I felt like I was replacing my life before the fire. It was exhausting. " Perry and Hooey turned to the Washtenaw county chapter of the Red Cross for immediate disaster relief aid. " The Red Cross was so helpful, " Perry said enthusiastically. " I definitely want to donate to their cause in the future. " The organization offered the girls a 300-dollar debit card to pay for linens, clothes, and other necessities. The Red f | Cross also loaned them military cots, which Hooey and Perry used at their own apartment to house the other for the first week. A few days after the fire, the girls, who had to take inventory of all the belongings that they lost in the fire, found themselves digging through the blackened insides of the house. The entire house was damp from the Ann Arbor fire department dousing the fire out, and the boarded windows left the house pitch black. " It was like walking through the sunken Titanic, " Hooey said. " It was pretty unbelievable to see. " The girls knew that it was important to make Hooey ' s 20 th birthday, which fell on September 1 1, a special one. They planned to go out that night to Lindenfest, an unofficial annual event on campus when the houses on Linden Street threw a block party. The Linden neighbors warmly greeted Hooey, bedecked in a tiara, with birthday wishes. The girls ' house on Linden and many of the other houses on the street were decorated with posters for Hooey ' s birthday, some of which read, " Get fired up, it ' s Hooey ' s 20 th birthday! " The traumatic experience inevitably brought about unavoidable panic attacks. Hooey, for example, rushed into Perry ' s room one day after burning a bag of popcorn in the microwave. Affected by the too familiar burning smell, she said with wide eyes, " I burned the popcorn! I burned the popcorn! I burned the popcorn! " It was not overdramatic to say that the fire left the girls emotionally exhausted. Still, they managed to make the best of the unfortunate situation. The fire brought the girls closer together, giving them something to bond over and likely making them lifelong friends. They managed to find laughter and good memories, like Hooey ' s birthday celebration, during one of the most difficult times in their lives. 00 o The main entrance to the Stephen M.

" Stephen M. Ross donated the large sum of money this past fall to acknowledge his education from this business school as the " foundation " of his career. Ross attended the University of Michigan Business School where he earned a degree in accounting and then went on to obtain a law degree from Wayne State University in 1965. Still not satisfied, Ross went back to school for one additional year and earned his master of law degree in taxation from New York University in 1966.

His objective with The Related Compaies was to develop, finance, and manage government assisted rental apartments. Along with being the largest donor to the University or any business school in the country, Ross was also a member of many committees and board of directors.

Serving students, faculty, and other members of the University community, the building came to represent something different for everyone who used the building. The Unions walls and windows, crown moldings, and wood paneling saw 100 years of history: an opera written, directed, and produced entirely by male students, performed in 1908; a speech proposing a group called the Peace Corps made by a young, eager John F. Kennedy in 1960; a tour by elementary school students from Vetal Elementary in 1998. The concept of the Michigan Union began in 1904 as an organization for men on campus. The building that housed the organization was designed by the Pond brothers and completed in 1919. In contrast to the eateries such as endy ' s and Subway, housed in the MUG, the building originally contained a barbershop, swimming pool, and a bowliW alley. Early in its history, the Union operated as a club, charging its members $2.50 in yearly dues. Women, who wereViot allowed to enter the building unescorted until 1956, vVere given other places to congregate, including the Barbour Gymnasium and the Michigan League.

Mariola, one of a select group of student-invitees, felt honored to be part of the event. " Not only was I seated at Coach Schembechler ' s table - a privilege in and of itself - I also had the opportunity to meet some o the other 200 alumni in attendance. Theyjdere all more than willing to share their scinating stories with me, " she said. singing the words of some of the University ' s oldest and most beloved songs, junior classic civilazations and biblical studies and English major Jason Ceo, who was a member of the Men ' s Glee Club, also recalled the evening fondly. " We spent extra time rehearsing our repertoire of Maize Blue songs to be certain we were doing them the justice they deserved. We wanted to give the audience our best rendition of everything, considering the historic significance of our performance. The centennial anniversary only happens once, and many people had emotional reactions to the inspiring songs, " said Ceo. Whether it was a lunchtime ritual or a weekly meeting, students felt the lasting impression of the Union as evidenced by the names scratched in the wooden tables in the JG and the offices decorated with student rganization ' s flyers and banners. ' As for Jason Cio, the memory he cherished most was his audition for Glee Club in the Pond Room, aptly named after the building ' s architects. " Auditioning for the Glee Club ended up being the best decision I ever made, and I will always think of the Michigan Union in correlation to that, " he said. In conjunction with the Union, the Michigan League celebrated its 75th anniversary in 2004 as well. The League was built in response to the no- female policy the Union implemented through much of its history. In 1929, then Regent James O. Murfin described the Michigan League as " the fairest gem on campus; a place to exchange ideas and ideals. " The building held many events for women on campus, including Frosh Weekend, where freshmen women were divided into teams and competed in a dance talent show. In order to honor both of these momentous occasions in the University ' s history, events were featured throughout the course of the entire school year. Both the Union and League were pivotal social and cultural centers on campus, and the celebration of these anniversaries was just another testament to the timelessness of the buildings.

Volunteers were helping register first-time voters up until the deadline, encouraging students to exercise their rights. For many students, this was the first opportunity they had Election By Shelby Ludtke to vote in a national election, especially one surr ounded by such controversy and excitement. The overall feeling this election year was one of anticipation. Democrats felt excitement at the chance to prove something to the world, rectifying the events of the 2000 election. Republicans, feeling the need to assert their position and win a solid victory this time around, campaigned diligently with advertisements proporting President Bush ' s stability. After the events of 9-11 and the subsequent Iraqi war, many Americans were divided on their position, but others were steadfast in their support of the President and his actions. " I believe George Bush is the best man for the job. Firstly, he has sound judgment. He responded well to the events of 9-11. He is committed to the defense of life and is the person our country needs in order to win the War on Terror.

I truly believe the strength to Americans are their families, " Kamzol said. Kamzol ' s sentiments were exactly what the University of Michigan College Republicans hoped to hear. Often feeling frustrated on a predominately-liberal campus, it was their goal to rally Republican students by citing key Bush strong points like Pell Grants, the all-volunteer army, and social security. " It is our hope that Republicans will continue to fight to keep America safe from terrorism, that Social Security and healthcare will be safeguarded so that current and future generations will be able to benefit from them, and that our economy will continue to grow, " sophomore history major Benjamin Saukas, who was Vice Chair External of the College Republicans, said. Others felt as though Bush ' s policies and practices were reprehensible at best. " His ' No Child Left Behind ' Act is a travesty. It sounds wonderful in theory, but for those of us living in smaller towns with lower incomes, all it does is take more and more funding from our schools. As of naxt year, the ' wheels fall off the bus ' - literally. In order to Iteep the doors of the high school open, we ' re going to have to cut sports and then bussing. My youngest might not even graduate from our local high school, " Pinckneir resident Kimberly Thiry said. Administration in his first term, such as the No Child Left Behind Act and the tax reforms, would escalate following his re-election. Ballots varied statewide, but for all those registered to vote in Michigan, two proposals were up for ratification. The first dealt with the lottery and gaming industry and asked voters to establish a law dictating that the voters would control the influx of new casinos. The propaganda surrounding this proposal was confusing and misleading. Governor Granholm told voters accepting the proposal would be bad for schools; other commercials claimed it was the only way voters could stop the nine new casinos slated for construction. The proposal was accepted by a vast majority. The second proposal was with respect to amending the Constitution of the State of Michigan to redefine the term " marriage " as existing between a man and a woman. Many voterj -especially in Ann Arbor, considered this motion to feeoiscriminatory and unfair, but others saw it as an extremely important moral issue. This proposal was also accepted, outlawing both gay marriage and civil unions in the State of Michigan. David South, Adjunct Professor of History, felt the proposals acceptance was appalling. " I cannot imagine why, in 2004, we .actually willing to write something into the Constitution lat limits the rights of citizens and is deliberately discriminatory. It is absolutely ludicrous. However, I do feel it was indicative of the country ' s mood. Many people seem to be asking for a bigger emphasis on Christian values, which explains both the presidential election and the fact that 11 states passed similar proposals, " Smith said. Many Ann Arbor residents were surprised by the result, but the state as a whole was not. Thiry, a single mother, watched her district ' s schools hit Media coverage of the election diverged heavily from years a high point before 9-11 and then plummet afterwards. prior. After the 2000 debacle, many news stations were She feared that the policies implemented by the Bush wary of calling states before they could be positive of their Continued on page 94 Continued from page 93 overall vote. Left-wing talking heads like Bill Maher spoke their piece, and many students looked to Jon Stewart and " The Daily Show " to obtain their information. Stewart and his team held an hour-long live special, entitled " Prelude to a Recount " on Tuesday night. The show was also hesitant on calling states, obtaining its information from more mainstream news stations. Unfortunately for all those tuning in to any station, the exit polling was often misleading; at 5pm on November 2 " d , many Democrats were under the impression Senator Kerry was winning; later in the evening it was uncertain, and by the next morning Kerry was preparing a concession speech. The College Republicans, who gathered in the Michigan Union on election night, felt gratified. " When we heard that Ohio had been called for President Bush, we couldn ' t have imagined a more satisfying moment. The day after the election, we were met with a rather hostile environment, but it was easier to bear when we remembered that though we love our school, Ann Arbor is not representational of the entire country. In fact, it was a personal challenge for many Republicans to not gloat over the victory because we knew our counterparts had worked just as hard for their candidate, " Saukas said. Not everyone felt that way. " I ' m moving to Canada, " junior Valaria Sunday said. " I hear Nova Scotia is nice. " Sunday, also from the Flint area, was a Catholic from a family of teachers. All Democrats, Sunday, and her siblings sported ' Teachers for Kerry ' pins for weeks before the election and helped to campaign against Bush, especially because of the ' No Child Left Behind ' Act. " Ask my parents; they ' ll talk to you about it for hours. They ' re very against it - and we all went to private school! " she said. Many students shared this sentiment as well. The College Democrats, having fought a hard battle, were saddened by their loss but realized that their party would have to President George Bush gets sworn in for his second term of Presidency on January 20,2005 in Washington D.C. Criticisms over the amount of money being spent on the inauguration during a time that the nation was at war were overly present in the media the days preceding the event Photo courtesy Connie Chang The Capitol Building sets the stage for the 55th Presidential inauguration. Bush supporters and protestors from the University traveled to Washington D.C. to witness the event Photo courtesy Connie Chanf reform and regroup in order to win an election in 2008. Wednesday, November 3 rd at midnight, they held candlelight vigil on the Diag. Intended to be a place students to remember those who had died during the Iraqi war, the vigil also served as a way for members to express their feelings and come together. Many angry, upset, confused students used the opportunity for a catharsis and vowed to remain active during the President ' s second " The Democratic Party will not stop fighting. The election was a setback, however the Democrats will not lie down. It takes time to move a progressive agenda in America. History shows us that America has always been relatively slow to change. We will continue to fight for our ideas of political, social, and economic justice, " senior Steve Kelly said. Kelly, who spent the summer preceding the election working for the Democratic Party in Washington, D.C., felt that his candidates put together a very strong campaign. He believed it was fear that put the president back into office. " Many Americans are not willing to change horse midstream. If 9 11 did not happen, I don ' t think Bus would have one. He kept Americans constantly fearir that they could be attacked at any time, " he said. Regardless of their political views, students could no dispute the facts: no incumbent president has ever lost a wartime election, unless of course they opted not to run. George W. Bush set the record for highest-ever popular vote, and following directly on his heels was Senator John Kerry. Newspapers all across Europe balked at the United States ' decision, but British Prime Minister Tony Blair remained steadfast in his support of Bush ' s Iraqi War policies. These are the facts, skewed right or left as they may be. President Bush won the election in 2000, and he won decisively in 2004. O O C ,,-: Guest Speakers Reach Out to Campus T he University always had a reputation of being one of the top institutions in America. This notoriety brought many famous and intelligent guest speakers to campus year after year, and this one was no exception. Michael Moore made an appearance for the second consecutive year, speaking at Hill Auditorium on September 29. Moore ' s visit, which was sponsored by the Michigan Student Assembly ' s Peace and Justice Commission, was intended to reach out to college- aged students during the pre-election months. As voter turnout in the 18 to 25 age bracket was down over the past few elections, Moore ' s anti-Bush commentary only swayed a port ion of the University ' s college-aged voters to what he believed to be the right direction. Many pro-Bush students chose to protest outside of Hill rather than sit in on Moore ' s lecture. A month later, Noam Chomsky, Institute Professor and professor of linguistics, linguistic theory, syntax, semantics, and philosophy of language at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, spoke in the Law School ' s Honigman Auditorium on October 28. Chomsky ' s speech was the 14 th Annual Davis, Markert, Nickerson Lecture on Academic and Intellectual Freedom. In the speech, titled " Illegal but Legitimate: A Dubious Doctrine for the Times, " Chomsky told the crowd that the resort to unilateral force in international affairs by powerful states had a long documented history. Chomsky also stated that there was a large gap between the general public view of the world and the elite, intellectual view. " On the one hand, liberal public opinion says that we should accept the jurisdiction of world courts, sign the Kyoto protocols on global warming, look to the UN. to take the lead, and otherwise rely on diplomatic means to deal with international crises, and to use force only when there is imminent danger, " By Katrina Deutsch Chomsky said. Students were so eager to hear Chomsky speak that they were perched on windowsills outside of the auditorium, hoping to get a glimpse. " I ' ve never seen so many people try to get into the Law Quad before, students were hanging in through the windows just to hear him. It took me about 20 minutes to climb over people sitting in the isles in order to get in front of the podium to take his photograph, " senior English major and Micbiganensian photographer Yvette Granata said. Another speaker who filled a campus auditorium was Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court Antonin Scalia. Scalia spoke in Rackham Auditorium about what he called " Originalism, " his own philosophy of interpreting the Constitution. Scalia, who was known for his extreme conservative views, had protestors lining the streets outside of Rackham right next to the lines of students and other viewers trying to get into the building. " I was told that Scalia was coming from one of my communications professors, and I was really excited to go. But when I got there the line was all the way down the street, and I ended up not being able to get in, " junior communications and classical civilizations major Rachel Schloss said. Along with the speech, Scalia also guest lectured in two Law School classes, an administrative law and constitutional law class. Other guest speakers at the University included the Nobel Prize winning poet Paul Muldoon, who delivered the lecture " In Person, Autopsychography, " and also gave a poetry reading. Many speakers came into town from October 26-30 with The New Yorker College Tour as well. The tour featured in-class visits by such people as investigative reporter Seymour M. Hersh, The New Yorker editor David Remnick, humor writer Andy Borowitz, and comedian Am y Sedaris.

Granata photo Martin Luther King Jr. Symposium !y Shelby Ludtke M Lost people, regardless of race or ethnicity, would agree that Martin Luther King, Jr. was a powerful orator with a resounding message of equality. His civil rights struggle was a public one, but as a great leader he inspired the citizens of this country to continue their daily personal struggles without end. Each year, studcptts at the University and in the surrounding Ann Apbor and Detroit communities honored Dr. Kingx vork with a series of events and celebrationsjjj5ughout the month of Janualy. Tliii ytai, lfre " T Annual Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Symposium surpassed expectations. The Symposium opened January 10 with a dramatic musical tribute to Dr. King, highlighting the over-arching theme " We Have Not Yet Learned the Simple Art of Living Together. " The goal of the Symposium was to stress that while strides had been made, there were still many injustices and inequalities present in contemporary society. To encourage students to forge ahead with Dr. King ' s work, the Symposium sponsored a variety of events including lectures, photographic exhibits, dance workshops, and films. On Martin Luther King Day, January 17, a March and rally sponsored by the Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action, Integration Immigrant Rights and Fight for Equality By Any Means Necessary took place on the Diag. Students from Detroit and children from the local Ann Arbor community were also invited to visit campus, the goal of which was to inspire them to see their full potential. " The lecture ' Diversity in the Business Community ' , sponsored by the School of Business, was very powerful. The speajcer, Lerone Bennett, Jr. explained that the problernr with society today was not solely the fault of Whipe leaders. It was instead something Blacks also neecled to work at. They needed to show Whites how to be ' diverse, how to work together to affect change. His most fascinating point attempted to illustrate that the goal had not been reached. Even though more African Americans were going to college and getting PhDs, there were also higher crime rates. ' Pimps vs. PhDs, ' " said sophomore Danella Chan. As the goal was always to spread the word, disseminate the maximum amount of information, the University ' s Residence Hall Association invited a group of students from Michigan State University to come down for the January 17 events. Ernest Drake, MSU junior, was very impressed by the day. " I would really have liked to see something like this happen up in East Lansing. We had some events, but mostly during the actual holiday. U of M had an entire month devoted - exactly what the legacy of Dr. King deserved. Furthermore, the entire University seemed to be involved, something that MSU was really lacking. As much as I hate to admit it, I really enjoyed my day in Ann Arbor. " The 18 th Annual Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Symposium truly accomplished its goal. As a forum for discussion, it opened doors, encouraged perseverance, and served as a way to educate and reinforce.

Since then, this program has grown and succeeded in raising $1.094 billion in cash and pledges as well as $187 million in bequests for a grand sum of $1.281 billion. On May 14 of the same year, University of Michigan President Mary Sue Coleman officially announced the beginning of the fundraising program as well as a new goal for the campaign: an unprecedented $2.5 billion. This money would go towards scholarships, academic programs, facilities, and other ventures, and was called " The Michigan Difference. " " The Michigan Uirterence focuses on maintaining and building the depth of excellence that is the foundation of the University of Michigan ' s preeminence as a public research university, " University President Mary Sue Coleman said. " Fourteen of [the University ' s] colleges and programs rank among the top ten in the nation, a claim no other University can make. Our breadth of accomplishment and activity gives University students and faculty an unparalleled array of opportunities. The title of the campaign, " The Michigan Difference, " captures the remarkable capacity of the University of Michigan to make a difference for our students, for our state, and for society. " The University had long been considered an impressive force in providing quality education to its students. The Michigan Difference would hopefully help to maintain or even improve upon the high standards to which people came to expect from the University. The program would include all three University campuses: Ann Arbor, Dearborn and Flint. In order to better define priorities for the campaign, all 19 colleges and schools of the University came together. They By :onnie Chang came up with five memes or goals that many felt illustrated the essence and purpose of the University. The first one was to fulfill the pro nise of science and technology, the second was to enrich .the student experience, the third to inspire a life of arts .and culture, the fourth to advance health and society s well being, and finally, the fifth to prepare leaders for the,iocal and global community. These five aspirations essemially boiled down to one underlying goal: to improve ie human condition. A three-day opening in May was organized to announce the new goal. This event was a huge success and acquired the attendance of more than 1,200 people. At the launch, the group in attendance was granted the chance to learn more about the programs that were tobe funded with the raised money. There were 90 events that could be attended, each parading different academic programs. In addition to the new goal, the honorary chairmen of the program, President Gerald R. Ford and his wife Betty Ford, were introduced. President Ford was a University alumnus from the graduating class of 1935 and exemplified the fourth theme that stated the University ' s aspiration of teaching and preparing world leaders. Hundreds of donations have been made, including Stephen M. Ross ' notorious $100 million donation for the Business School as well as the Brehms ' $44 million donation to accelerate the search for the cure of diabetes. The Michigan Difference was the University ' s first major fundraising campaign since 1997. When the goal was reached, the donations will be divided, with $400 million going towards student scholarships, $425 million towards faculty support, $625 million for program research support, $500 million for facilities, and $150 million towards discretionary support. The campaign was expected to end in 2008.

" Not surprisingly, accepting the Marshall Kingdom, in October 2005. For his first year he planned to continue his studies of math and physics and afterward he intended to carry out independent research in the field of dark matter cosmology and quantum gravity. The Marshall Scholarship was one of the most coveted scholarships in the nation. Sponsored by the British Parliament, the Scholarship was " open only to United States citizens who hold a first degree from an accredited four-year college or university in the United States with a minimum GPA of 3.7. " As it was so competitive, like the Rhodes and Mitchell Programs, there was consequently a rigorous selection process that came with the application. The University began the process through information sessions open to all students. Students first applied for the scholarship within the University, and then the University nominated a small handful to continue on with the application process. From this point until the end of the decision process, it was up to the Marshall to award this great honor to a mere 40 students nationwide. was not Bourjaily ' s only option. He also had the attractive alternative of attending a Harvard Graduate Program where he would conduct research. However, Bourjaily opted to not go for his Ph.D. and instead wait until he finished up the Marshall program. Although he knew that he was somewhat delaying his research, Bourjaily felt that ultimately he would " appreciate the groundwork later. " As stated by their website, the Marshall Scholarship included a pledge to Bourjaily that covered " university fees, cost of living expenses, an annual book grant, thesis grant, research and daily travel grants, fares to and from the United States and, where applicable, a contribution towards the support of a dependent spouse. " In Bourjaily s own words: " It covers full expenses, tuition, and a generous stipend about $30,000 a year. " Bourjaily was truly a deserving winner of the Marshall Scholarship award. His existing accomplishments were remarkable and he was sure to continue to produce extraordinary and exciting work in the future.

Worcester photo Campus Day Eases Minds By Melissa Mariola That initial step onto campus for first-year students was intimidating and confusing for some. For that reason, the University offered a program for possible future Wolverines to experience the University first-hand. The program was called Campus Day. While visiting the campus students and parents were able to familiarize themselves with everything the University had to offer with the help of a current student. While every incoming freshman or transfer student was required to attend an Orientation session before attending the University, Campus Day was an optional program designed to give students a more in-depth and exploratory look at the University. Current students who were trained with detailed knowledge regarding all aspects of the University facilitated the one-day program. As Campus Day leaders, these 37 individuals were responsible for answering questions one-on-one with the attendees and providing a comprehensive tour of the campus facilities. " I get to show possible Michigan students all the great aspects of this campus. From the Union to the Diag to the school spirit, they get to see first hand of what life is like here. I love this campus and showing it off. I can ' t believe that I ' ve been getting paid for four years to do this, " senior political science major Perry Zielak said. Competition to become a Campus day leader was heavy as each year the program interviewed about 100 people for an average of 15 open spots. The program was divided up into a morning and an afternoon session. The morning session allowed students to preview the campus through a walking tour and residence hall visit. Guided by Campus Day leaders, the tour gave students the chance to ask questions about campus and Ann Arbor life. Following lunch, students had the opportunity to become more informed on the academic options afforded to them by speaking with advisors within each college of the University. Through the guidance of Campus Day leaders, the program exposed students to a more identifiable side of the University. " I wanted to help students realize that Michigan is an amazing place. To the people on my tours, I am the face of Michigan. Its a great feeling when you know that your enthusiasm and energy has helped someone decide that Michigan is the place for them, " Zielak said. And Zielak succeeded: " The reason I came to Michigan was because of Perry. I was so unsure of what I wanted to do and where I wanted to go, and he just told our group to trust our gut feeling, and that ' s what I did, and now I am here and love it. I think I owe part of that to Perry and Campus Day, " sophomore LS A student Amy Mangieri said.

For seventeen days, athletes from 202 countries congregated in Athens, Greece, where spirit, unity, and talent were celebrated After thousands of years, the Olympic Games were finally brought back to its home ofyCreece. The first Olympic Games took place in Olympia, Greece in 776 B.C. and then continued evearfSur years after until it was abolished , the games were then revived in 1896 in Athens. Therefore, it was only appropriate that the games reached Greece once again. 11,099 athletes participated in the games, which was the largest number of athletes and included the highest women ' s representation in the history of the games. There were also over 4 billion viewers who watched the 28 events. America was privileged enough to take home 103 medals, 35 gold, 39 silver, and 29 bronze. According to junior English major Tim Corwin who attended the games, " The atmosphere was incredible. It gives you chills when the Greek athletes would do well and then you would see 80,000 fans waving their flags in the air. " However, Corwin was upset that more Americans did not attend the games. " I really believe that more Americans did not come, because the media created such a paranoia about security.

This was the moment that would determine everything. I remember turning around and looking at the Scoreboard and seeing that I got third, and so did Ketchum and Keller. I was so excited that we were going to the Olympics, " said Vanderkaay. Vanderkaay ' s experience was just one of the many that a few Michigan swimmers were able to experience this summer. Peter Vanderkaay, along with senior Andrew Hurd, former Wolverine Tom Malchow, club wolver- ine member Klete Keller, former wolverine Dan Ket- chum, volunteer assistant coach Michael Phelps, Coach Jon Urbanchek and Coach Bob Bowman, all traveled to Athens this summer for the Olympic games.

They were usually awake by seven o ' clock and not back to the Olympic village until midnight. According to Coach Bowman, " The mos challenging situation in the games is the schedule and th lack of sleep that the kids get. " However, the coaches worked hard to prepare the men mentally and physically. " u try to prepare the men for the stresses they are going tolface, especially away from the pool, that could take away trfeir focus, such as the media, logistics of being there, and living in the Olympic village, " said Bowman. " There is a loubf stress at the games, but you really don ' t realize it unti half way through, " he I. Although the coaches did their best to prepare the team for the stress of the Olympics, it was really up to the team members to handle the pressure. According to Vanderkaay, " I prepared myself for the games by staying focused and confident. I was excited the whole time; it was hard to sleep some of those nights. I had to remember what I did to get there. I knew that if I followed the same path I would be ok. " Regardless of the pressures and stress at the games, swimmers and coaches were still excited to be there. " When you are there, you are very focused on what you are doing, so it is hard to sit back and look. But every now and then y ou will have a moment and think, wow, we are really here, " said Bowman. The excitement for the Michigan team members was heightened by the fact that they won a gold medal in the 800-meter freestyle relay, beating the heated Austrialian rival team. " My most exciting moment of the games was the men ' s 800 free relay where we had three of our guys swim- to have them win that event and beat the Australians was the most exciting moment, " said Bowman. Vanderkaay agreed, " Winning the gold medal was awesome. Everyone was pretty emotional but also incredibly proud and excited. We were not supposed to win that relay. It was close; Klete swam the last 50 of the race, and it was neck and neck. The other guy was the best 200 swimmer to ever walk on the earth. Klete did a hell ofajob.

Photo courtesy Media Relations o f 1 Hash Bash Takes ver Campus By Jenny Welbel I n 1969, Ann Arbor resident John Sinclair was sentenced to ten years of prison for possession of two narijuana cigarettes. Ann Arbor residents quickly syp ' ported Sinclair, and in 1970 a freedom ralK jas-held in his honor. During the rally, April 1 was declared the official day for an annual smoke-in, which has infamously become known as Hash Bash. Since 1970, the event has been held on a Saturday in the beginning of April. On April 3, 2004, Hash Bash once again proved to be a huge success. Approximately 3,000 activists from all over the country along with university students filled the campus in order to show their support for the legalization of marijuana. " ! think Hash Bash is actually a great event because it allows people who believe in the legalization of marijuana to promote their views in an open environment, " junior psychology major Daniel Lubetsky said. While congregating on the Diag, protestors played instruments and listened to a variety of speakers, including poet John Sinclair, High Times columnist Chef Ra, and author Jack Herer who passed out flyers. " Hash Bash is not so much about protesting anymore but about hanging out and showing support for a cause these people believe in, " senior biology major Michele Sommers said. However, not everyone on the campus was in support of the event. Police kept a watchful eye on the Diag to catch anyone who tried to sneak a smoke. The law in Ann Arbor remained that while on University property one could be arrested for smoking. However, once off campus, smoking was only punishable with a twenty- five dollar fine. Consequently, activists held their breath until the block party on Monroe. " Hash Bash brings Ann Arbor back to its more liberal days, " junior biopsychology major Scott Siglin said. " However, I still believe that the event is over-rated. It doesn ' t really accomplish much and is just a bunch of people smoking pot and selling various marijuana paraphernalia. " Regardless of one ' s attitude toward Hash Bash and the ongoing debate of the legalization of marijuana, the annual event has remained an important part of Ann Arbor and will continue to create controversy in the future. O O C A Hash Bash attendee celebrates at the event by giving a peace sign. Hash Bash attracted not only University members, but also people from across the state of An audience surrounds a group of drummers who create part of the entertainment at Hash Bash. Music served as an annual staple at each Hash Bash, creating an easy-going atmostphere. Two policemen walk towards a group of Hash Bash participants to make sure that the event stayed in order. Even though the event was peaceful, the city was prepared in case the crowd got out of hand. I CJ Blood Battle vs. OS " T, he University of Michigan annual blood drive took place this year from November 15 through the 19. The blood drive was held at different areas around campus, but the central location was in the ballroom on the second floor of the Union. Other locations included the Pierpont Commons for North Campus students as well as the East Hall Atrium for people living closer to South Campus. The blood drive made it a point to spread out donation sites all around campus so as to make it as convenient as possible for people to give blood. There were various ways that the drive was organized. Like all other years, advertising and promoting were key aims. It was important to inform the campus when and where the blood drive was going to take place. As was usual with such large events, there was the regular flyering and posting of signs the week before and the week of the drive. This year, the promotion of the drive was taken a step farther when a University-wide email was sent out. One email was from " e-True Blue " which was an e- newsletter for University students. The email encouraged students to " Give your ' Blue ' blood to beat OSU. " This is not the first time that the blood drive has posed as a battle between the Wolverines and the Buckeyes. Annually, the drive took place the weekend before the big game. Like previous years, this year followed the tradition of using the rivalry competition to fuel peoples desire to donate blood. Another important way that the blood drive marketed itself was through its website, blooddrives . One of the main purposes of this site was to inform all of the browsers of where the drive sites were located and what times they were open. Additionally, By Dorothy Weise there was also key information that some people may not have known such as the fact that as of January 1, 2004, it became mandatory by law that donors must bring identification with them to the sites. The blood drive website was one of a particularly touching nature. A link read " A True Story. " The page ' s opening paragraph read, " I want to thank you for taking time to set up these blood drives. My husband recently suffered severe internal bleeding and required 4 units of blood to save his life. Thanks to people like you and to those who donate, I still have him here with me today. " The wife, who remained unidentified, went on to explain the devastating predicament that she found herself when her husbands hospital refused to accept family- donated blood as a donor. She discussed the point that all donated blood must meet the standard of the Red Cross and therefore must first be screened and tested by the Red Cross itself. So without the help and organizations of blood drives, her and her husband would have been left completely empty handed. What was most significant about the website ' s inclusion of this woman ' s story was that it made a point of letting donors, or potential donors, know where their blood was going and who their blood was helping. Although everyone knew that if they give blood they are probably saving a life, it was heartwarming, in a way, to hear it from the people that were being helped. Encouragement such as this story did seem to make a difference. Michelle Vemeulen, an undergraduate engineering junior, volunteered her time to work for the blood drive. Vemeule said that " because they were understaffed, there were no walk-ins allowed and only people with appointments could donate blood, [but even so] there has still been a good mix of students and adults coming in all day. " O C Blood donors sign in and pick up the packets of information given to all donors The University lost the battle as Ohio State collected 1 ,874 pints of blood and Michigan raised only 1,601 pints. L. Proux photo A University student donates blood in the Union, one of the many temporary donation sites set up on campus. The blood drive took place from November 15-19. L. Proux photo ROTC and the Effects of War By Aparnaa Shaft Connie Chang OTC at the University was divided into threexnajor branches: Naval ROTC (NROTC), ArrwJfcOTC, and Air Force ROTC (AFROTC). After ractoating from the ram, each studeQLsefved ' ror four years in the military as an officer. In recent years, there had never been a cause of apprehension; however, due to current events such as the Iraq War and the War on Terrorism, service after college had taken on a new meaning. " It ' s the reality that most of us are likely going to be heading to Iraq at sometime or another in our lives after college. We ' re not going to be able to just float through, and there ' s probably going to be danger, but I don ' t think it ' s had a large effect on anyone in the program, " sophomore cellular, molecular and developmental biology major Tyler James Klein said. Many concurred with Klein ' s attitude. " Most people who want to do it, do it. Not everyone necessarily agrees on controversial topics. However, most people who join it see it through, " sophomore aerospace engineering major AJ Lewis said. The Naval ROTC program commissioned officers for service in the Navy ' s unrestricted line, as did the Marine Corps. All officers commissioned through NROTC served as a Nuclear or Conventional Surface Warfare Officer (ship driver), a Nuclear Submarine Officer, Naval Aviator, Nurse, or a Marine Officer. To this end, summer training sessions were geared to help the student make an informed decision about their future warfare specialty. Joining the NROTC program provided a transition to the college environment. Students increased their probability of academic success in that critical first year. Every staff member supported the " academics first " philosophy and worked to help students attain their educational goals. This assistance included counseling and graduate tutors to help. As a member of the NROTC Unit, the students had the opportunity to participate in numerous extracurricular activities. The intramural teams had enjoyed great success in their respective divisions. The most popular teams were Softball, volleyball, basketball, football, and innertube water polo. Enrollment in the NROTC Unit did not restrict participation in extracurricular activities offered by the University. Many of the students were members of fraternities, sororities, and honor societies. Others participated in club and varsity sports, the varsity band, Continued on page I 1 9 member of Air Force ROTC makes his ly from the Hill to Central Campus.

Tedjasuktnana photo A group of Army ROTC members gathers for training. All ROTC members had rigourous schedules tha started as early as 5a.m. Tedjasukmana photo Continued from page I 1 6 and University sponsored work-study programs. The NROTC Unit allowed students to select activities that fit their academic course load. " To be honest, the mood [within the students in the Naval program] is pretty much the same as other students. It ' s just as varied, people are for and against different issues. Everyone has their own opinion, although everyone ' s still willing and ready to help in whatever way they have to in accord with being an officer, " freshman biopsychology major Ron Filk said. The Army ROTC was a program of leadership and military skills training. It prepared students for officer responsibilities in the active Army, Army Reserve, or Army National Guard following graduation or after deferment to attend advanced civilian schooling. Army ROTC allowed students to quickly gain confidence and self- discipline necessary to excel in their studies. Students acquired leadership skills and the experience sought by employers of college graduates. They also earned the honor of serving their country as an officer, full-time on active duty or part-time as they pursued their civilian career. They also had two, three, and four year scholarships available. Introductory courses let participants examine officer opportunities. Despite what some assumed, the current global situation did not drastically affect enrollment in the program. " I ' ve heard that enrollment ' s gone down, but it ' s probably due to the fact that after September 1 1 there was a huge surge in people who wanted to be in the ROTC program. Enrollment ' s back to how it was before then, " freshman Near Eastern Studies major Rob Garvy said. Upon completion of the advanced course, students were commissioned Second Lieutenants in the Army. The majority of the students in the program believed that the Iraq War and the War on Terrorism hadn ' t altered the mood of members in fact, many believed it to have created enthusiasm for the program, as the need to defend the U.S. overpowered any feelings of fear or anxiety. Freshman pre-business major Dan Lee said, " I don ' t think people are nervous - you ' ll hear the staff bring up the topic of stuff that ' s going on, but it ' s never that big of an issue among students. You just feel like you want to do something about all of it. There ' s a lot of pride that ' s felt in wearing the uniform. " The NROTC program provided participants an opportunity to develop oneself as a leader and a manager. The leadership experience was a valuable complement to a college degree. The program led to a commission in the United States Navy or Marine Corps. This opportunity provided students with a challenging and rewarding job from the day they graduated. The first and second years (or until you pass Field Training) of the AFROTC were called the GMC (General Military Course) years. The first year in ROTC was spent acclimating to the military and the program in general learning their standards and how to be an effective follower. Towards the end of the first year one started to have some leadership roles. The second year was spent in preparation for four weeks of intense military and leadership training. This was called Field Training and it was held during the summer. " In my opinion, AFROTC is one of the best ways for young men and women to become model American citizens while serving their country, " junior Asian Studies and Chinese Major, Deborah Westbrook said. QO The Wolverines face off against the Fighting Irish in Notre Dame on September I 1 , 2004. The game, which the Wolverines lost 20-28, was the first away game of the season.

The football team celebrated its pth anniversary, giving students and fans even more of a w the team during games. The 2004 softball team pushed its way to victory and claimed the title of regional champions. If teams were not the best or did not have a winning record, the student body still supported them, and cheered their hearts out. They were proud of their teams, which were some of the best in the Big Ten. Once you were a Wolverine, you were a Wolverine for life. As the alma mater said: " Here ' s to the college whose colors we wear; Here ' s to the hearts that are true! Here ' s to the maid of the golden hair, and eyes that are brimming with blue! Garlands of bluebells and maize intertwine; And hearts that are true and voices combine; Hail! Hail to the college whose colors we wear; Hurrah for the Yellow and Blue! " Teamwork and patience combine to put the team B B ICH OR TRy4CH A.S the Wb VenttCS JOUght for victory in a number of close competitions, the young baseball team learned from each experience and continued to improve their game. The Wolverines rounded out the season with an overall winning record (34-26) and a Big Ten winning record (19-13). After a rough start, the Wolverines came together to shut out Duke and dominated in Big Ten play with wins in the Iowa and Ohio State series. The end of the season yielded the much anticipated Big Ten Tournament. Michigan started the double elimination tournament strong with a win against Penn State and Ohio State, but fell to Minnesota and was later eliminated by Ohio State. The Wolverines took third place. With high hopes, sophomore first baseman Kyle Bohm said, " [Next] year, with all the players coming back, it would be a disappointment, to say the least, to not win a Big Ten Championship. We had a lot of young players, but you can always use that excuse so much. We lost a lot of the close games and the key to success would be winning the close games. " As successful as the team was, the players were individually shoered with honors as well. Sophomore outfielder Matt Butler said, " [Baseball] is the kind of sport that your talent only takes you so far. You don ' t jump right into the major leagues; it ' s a long process for a reason. There ' s some fierce competition. As far as shear numbers, you have to be the best of the best just to be good. " Three Michigan players were selected in the Major League Baseball Draft including Derek Feldkamp, Jim Brauer, and Brandon Roberts. Earlier in the season, Feldkamp was honored as the Big Ten Co-Pitcher of the Week during the Iowa series. Brauer won the Geoff Zahn award as Michigan ' s Most Valuable Pitcher. Roberts had been selected for the All Region Second Team and the All Big Ten Conference First Team. Also successful was sophomore second baseman Chris Getz who was selected for the All Region First Team and received All Midwest Regional Honors. Like his teammate, Getz was also selected for the All Big Ten Conference First Team and the All Tournament Team, and batted a .600 average during the Big Ten Tournament (9 for 15). Concentrating on his pitch, senior pitcher Michael Penn prepares to put one in the glove.

Photo courtesy Media Relations Despite exclusion from the NCAA tourney team becomes HIT Champions AjtCT d disappointing rejection from the NCAA Tournament, the men ' s basketball team was thrilled to get an invitation to extend their post-season in the National Invitation Tournament (NIT). Michigan Head Coach Tommy Amaker commented that, " We kind of knew it [NCAA] was a long shot, but nonetheless we still had a chance [but] it didn ' t turn out that way in terms of a positive outcome. " As Amaker said, although the Wolverines had their hopes set on the NCAA, the NIT was just as exciting for the team to compete. The NIT began on March 15 and ended on April 1. The Wolverines ' first game was on March 16 at home versus the Minnesota Tigers. In a pre-game interview, Amaker speculated that Minnesota " is the kind of team that we ' re going to face that certainly has the potential to do a lot of damage in this tournament. Hopefully we can derail that right away. " Ultimately, the Wolverines were victorious against the Tigers but only by a slight margin of 65-64. The next game, also at home, was against the Oklahoma Sooners. With 11,241 Michigan fans watching, Michigan beat the Sooners with a final score of 63-52, a much more comforting leeway than the first game. In the quarterfinals, with the hopes of advancing to New York City, the Wolverines continued their streak of success as they blew past Hawaii, 88-73. On Tuesday, March 20, the Wolverines found themselves at Madison Square Garden in the midst of the semi-finals against the Oregon Ducks. Even after the wear and tear of three nerve-racking games under their belts, the Wolverines came together forcing 16 turnovers by the Ducks while maintaining their own 52.7 percent shooting accuracy from the field. Michigan stopped Oregon at a remarkable 78-53. Finally, after 17 days of what might as well have been March Madness, the Wolverines played the Rutgers Scarlet Knights. Michigan put up quite a fight from the start of the game, not just against the Rutgers team but also with the Rutgers-based New York crowd. Even so, Michigan remained in tact, leading the game off with a score of 6-0 in the first two minutes. The game was truly one of champions. With only three minutes left, the Wolverines advanced to a 58-48 lead. When the clock ran out, the Wolverine team found victory with a final score of 62-55, crowning Michigan the 2004 NIT Champions.

Coming off the NIT Championship last season, the men ' s Michigan basketball squad was determined to leave their mark in Wolverine history in the coming season. Prior to the season opener, three Wolverines were awarded with prestigious honors. Former guard Bernard Robinson Jr. was drafted to the NBA with Connecticut ' s Emeka Okafor. Robinson was the first Wolverine to enter the NBA draft since the Cleveland Cavaliers took Jamal Crawford in 2000. Junior guard Daniel Horton was named to the Wooden Award Pre-season All- American Team as one of 50 candidates which will consist of a final 10 members at the conclusion of the season. Finally, an outstanding alumnus, Glen Rice (1986-89), was honored by the University men ' s basketball program by retiring his no. 41 jersey and displaying it above the floor of Crisler Arena. The season commenced with several exhibition match-ups including the Maize and Blue scrimmage and head-to-head competition against Michigan Tech and Wayne State. " ! think we just picked up the intensity on defense. We just tried to shut them down from getting the ball around the three-point line and passing it around. We just picked up our intensity and continued to work hard on defense, " sophomore forward Courtney Sims said about the Michigan Tech game. Head coach Tommy Amaker noted at the half, when Michigan led the Huskies 33-24, " We talked at halftime about trying to not let Michigan Tech get above 50 points. I was really pleased that we were able to lock into that goal. We held them to 19 points in the second half. " As the season continued to unfold, upcoming games against highly ranked teams would test the depth of the Michigan team. " As you go on and look at our schedule, as I said, it ' s very challenging for us. I think as we open up the year, there are some big opportunities as well as some big challenges, and we ' re looking at that as the case, " Amaker said. The mentality of the team echoed optimism toward their fresh start in NCAA competition. The team prepared for reentry into March Madness. However, tests of the Wolverines ' strength were first challenged by Big Ten and non-conference competition. Holding tight, freshman guard forward Ron Coleman, the captain of the team, fights for possession of the ball.This exhibition competi- tion against Michigan Tech was only the second time the team opened the season against Tech.

" The most important thing we have to do this season is to earn respect throughout the Big Ten. We are not expected to come in first, but I believe that we have the capability to do anything we set our mind to, " freshman guard Jessica Sterling said. The team, considered inexperienced and naive because of the seven freshmen added to the roster in the off-season, had many obstacles to overcome, such as finding new leaders and players to fill the positions left vacant by last year ' s seniors. However, the team remained optimistic. As second year coach Cheryl Burnett said, " This season we believe that we can accomplish anything. I believe we could and should be an NCAA-caliber team. " After finishing seventh in the Big Ten last year, the team worked hard in the off-season to stay in peak shape for the 2004-2005 season. " As far as the off season goes, coaches do their best and provide us with a huge booklet to follow. But as for me personally, I just got out there and worked hard, " senior forward BreAnne McPhilamy said. The team felt that work in the off-season would be vital to success in the regular and post seasons. The season began with highly anticipated non-conference match-ups against Alabama and Washington. " The Big Ten is arguably one of the toughest conferences in respect to women ' s basketball programs. We finished seventh last season, proudly, but we still hope to achieve much more this season, " Burnett said. Among Michigan ' s greatest obstacles in the Big Ten was Penn State, who finished first in the conference, as well as Purdue, Ohio State, and Michigan State. " We treat the each game equally because in the end they all mean the same. Our goal is to win every game and this season, like every other season, we will focus on winning each game one at a time, " McPhilamy said. The team continued to be optimistic about the 2004-2005 season with hopes of doubling their conference record, just as they did last season. " Even though we ' re an inexperienced team, we have great talent and ambition. We just want to play our best and hopefully exceed expectations.

The University ' s cheerleading team recently won sixth place at the National Cheerleading Association ' s National championship in Daytona, Florida. Comprised of approximately 20 students, the Michigan Cheerleading team was the pinnacle of success and achievement. Th e team consisted of extremely qualified members, and the tryouts for the team were held in both September and April. " On the first day, tryout material is taught. Material includes a cheer and a made-up fight song and basic stunting. On the second day, each girl and guy is judged in front of a panel in each of the four categories: cheer, fight song, tumbling and stunting. The goal is to accumulate as many points as possible, " sophomore Amanda Szabo said. Commitment to the squad required up to 15 hours of practice each week. The task of the cheerleader was to train under professional help and seek any sort of medical advice that was necessary to ensure a fit and fine cheerleading technique. " Once on the team, We practice three times a week for two and a half hours each day and weight train at least twice a week (about an hour each day) in the Natatorium. As for dietary constraints, we don ' t really have any. However, the University does have a nutritionist on staff to help anyone who may want help reaching a certain weight or health level. Every persons nutritional needs are different for his or her caloric expenditure and body mass so it is hard to create a diet that will meet every persons needs. " Szabo said. The cheerleading team was guided not only by professional and medical assistants but had multiple head coaches who trained the cheerleaders in their routines. The head coaches ' main purpose was to increase fan support at athletic events, raise the level of public support for the University, and represent the University at athletic and alumni events at the local, state, and national levels. All in all, " Cheerleading is great! I love every minute of it from practicing hard three days a week, to weight training, and cheering basketball and football games. It is all a whole lot of fun. " Szabo said. - Leading a section in a cheer, Erin Smith holds the " I " while the rest of the stadium spells Michigan.

With one last push, the five-man team, led by junior Dan Murray crossed the finish line at the 8,000m race during the Eastern Michigan University open with a time of 26:56, which put them in 18th place. The cross country team was sixth coming into the season and looked forward to strong rankings at the NCAA Pre-Nationals and the Great America Cross Country Festival. " We have a really strong team this year, " senior captain Nate Brannen said. In fact, the team returned ten letter- winners from last season ' s team, while also bringing in a trio of freshmen as well as a transfer student from Princeton. " ! definitely feel that we have one of the top recruiting classes in the country, " junior Nick Willis said. One of the strongest new members was first-year student Michael Woods. Wo ods came to Ann Arbor with a lot of international experience under his belt. However, Woods said, " I was extremely excited to come to Michigan and train with one of the best cross country teams in America. I feel so proud to be on this team. " Besides the superior quality of the team, the camaraderie was undeniable. " The team is like a family. I love being able to go to the locker room, hang out with the guys, and then hammer out a hard workout, " Woods said. Brannen agreed, " Our biggest strength is definitely that we are very close. We always hang out with each other, which brings our running to the next level. " Another one of the team ' s strength was their speed. " A lot of the men came with a background of track, so we really have good speed in our races, " Willis said.

They also wanted to perform better at the national level. Having a total ten meets this season, including the three championship meets at the end, the runners had to maintain focus throughout the entire season. Junior Rebecca Walter and senior Sarah Pizzo were two of the team ' s key runners this season. Last season, Rebecca Walter and head coach Mike McGuire were named Big Ten Athlete and Coach of the Year, respectively. The team also finished fourth at last year ' s NCAA Championships, and they aimed to perform bette this season. McGuire said, " We ' re capable of a top ten finish at the nationals. " This meant the team had to take everyone one of its meets seriously. Sarah Pizzo said that the teams goals were to " win the Big Ten conference again[...]and to improve on last year. " This meant that the team would have to place in the top three at Nationals in order to improve from last season. Rebecca Walter said that the team ' s goal for this season was to " get everyone to step up to a new level of performance. " The team showed that it was serious at the Notre Dame Invitational where they placed second out of 24 teams. Walter raced with a personal-best 5,000m time of 16:44 at the Notre Dame Invitational. McGuire said, " We ' re geared for the end of the season. " Looking to the season ahead, Walter said, " We dive in head-first after the Pre-Nationals. The meets at the beginning of the season are stepping stones for the Nationals. " After the Pre-Nationals was the EMU Classic, followed by the three championship meets. Pizzo said the key meets this season were the Notre Dame Invitational, the Pre-Nationals, and all three championship meets. Outside the competition on the courses, the squad had a diligent team when it came to academics.

The team, which advanced to the NCAA Division I Field Hockey Championship in November 2003, finished with rankings in all four statistical categories of the National Field Ho ckey Coaches Association (NFHCA), and boasted 11 Academic All-Big Ten athletes and 2003 Dita NFHCA West Region Coach of the Year. However, the team lost starting seniors April Fronzoni, Kristi Gannon and Stephanie Johnson after the 2003 season. The Wolverines kicked off the 2004 season with the ACC Big Ten Challenge in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, where they collected two losses against North Carolina and Wake Forest. They then went to defeat Maine and New Hampshire in two additional road games before returning to Ann Arbor, where they beat Syracuse with a score of 4-0. Senior captain Adrienne Hortillosa registered her second multi-goal effort of the season in this game, with senior Jessica Blake and junior Katie Morris contributing one goal each. After a 2-3 home field loss to Old Dominion, the women went on to shut out Central Michigan with a score of 11-0. f The ninth-ranked Wolverines continued their winning streak, defeating eighth-ranked Northeastern 3-0. Sophomore Jill Civic scored the first goal just 21 seconds into the game, and senior Jessica Blake and sophomore Mary Fox added two more. The Wolverines out-shot Northeastern 18-11, but were out-cornered 9-4. _ The team headed to the Hoosier state where they faced off against Indiana and L Ball State, both on their home fields. The seventh-ranked Michigan team defeated sixteenth-ranked Indiana 4-1 with Civic contributing two goals, and Blake and Fox each contributing one. The team collected their fourth consecutive win the following day, defeating Ball State 4-0. Blake recorded two assists and two goals, extending her scoring streak to ten games, and earned the title of Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week for the second week in a row. " It was definitely a huge honor... but realistically I think that even though there is one name on the piece of paper that honor is a product of the whole teams effort on the field both at practice and in the games, " Blake said.

Although the Wolverines were ranked seventh in the pre-season coach ' s poll and eighth in the Associated Press poll, the team lost several key players to graduation, leaving gaps on both the offensive and defensive sides of the ball. However, those positions were filled by both the young and inexperienced and the old and wise. This combination set up one of the most thrilling rides in Michigan football history. Under the guidance of revered Coach Lloyd Carr, in his tenth season as head coach, and the leadership of elected captain ' s David Baas and Marlin Jackson, the team opened their season against Miami (Ohio). Although Matt Gutierrez was supposedly filling the quarterback position, a sore shoulder kept him out of practice. In a game day decision, freshman Chad Henne took the first snap against Miami, becoming only the second quarterback to start as a true freshman in Michigan football history. After a standout performance from the defense with four interceptions and one fumble for a recovery, the team commanded a victory. Henne ' s impressive effort earned him the starting position for the remainder of the season. Senior wide receiver Braylon Edwards said of Henne, " He ' s a special kind of person who you automatically have faith in; you believe in what he can do. " However, the team found a harder battle at Notre Dame. Despite four field goals from sophomore Garrett Rivas and a Steve Breaston touchdown, the Wolverines suffered a 28-20 loss. The struggle continued against San Diego State at home. Close throughout all four quarters, San Diego missed two field goals in the fourth to allow the team to pull out a 24-21 win. In this game, another true freshman found his niche. Michael Hart took over the role at the running back position. Hart commented on the opportunity to carry the ball more, " I had to come in here and show what I could do. I have to keep proving myself week in and week out and I have to be consistent.

Neff photo Continued from page 137 Although fans often struggled with the inconsistency of the team as a whole, the Big Ten opener against Iowa brought back the faith for many. The defense created five turnovers and contributed to a 30-17 redemption victory. With that, the team began a very steady winning streak and a more consistent performance. Sparked by Leon Hall ' s 76 yard punt return for a touchdown, the Wolverines scored on three straight third quarter possessions for a win against Indiana. This victory carried the team into a homecoming win against Minnesota that kept fans on their toes, but also kept the Little Brown Jug at the Big House. The team then traveled to Illinois, where Hart ran for 234 yards in the 30-19 victory. Hart continued this outstanding performance with another 206 yards in the defeat of nationally ranked Purdue. The highlight of the season came against cross-state rival Michigan State. Trailing 27-10 with 8:43 left in the fourth quarter, an Edwards ' touchdown sparked a comeback that led to a three overtime victory in one of the best college football games ever. Senior Marlin Jackson said, " It was the greatest victory I have ever been a part of and maybe the greatest victory ever at Michigan. " This game was also the third consecutive game that Hart ran for more than 200 yards, in which he became the first player to do so at Michigan. The team completed the perfect home season with a win against Northwestern. Despite a heartbreaking loss at Ohio State in the final game of the season, the Wolverines finished with a somewhat unexpected 9-2 overall record, sharing the Big Ten title with Wisconsin and earning a second consecutive trip to the Rose Bowl. Kicker Garrett Rivas commented, " The team ' s greatest accomplishment this year was the opportunity to reclaim the Big Ten title and to be able to celebrate that title by playing in the Rose Bowl with this team. Hopefully, we send the seniors away with a win for the last time that they ever wear the maize and blue. " In the end, players stepped up at a time when the team most needed them. No matter what the outlook may be or who the team may or may not have, the season symbolized the reality that Michigan football can never be counted out to put forth the hardest effort and bring the sweet smell of roses to the Ann Arbor air.

The field goal ended a dramatic comeback for the Longhorns, edging Michigan 38-37. Ending the 2004 regular season with a 9-2 record, the Wolverines earned their second consecutive ticket to the Rose Bowl. Much speculation surrounded Michigan ' s opponent, but the matter was eventually settled on Bowl Selection Day, pairing the Wolverines with the University of Texas Longhorns in the Rose Bowl on January 1, 2005. Michigan and Texas entered the game evenly matched, with records of 9-2 and 10-1, respectively. Each team was also ranked nationally, Michigan, No. 12, ESPN USA Today, No. 13 AP; Texas, No. 5, ESPN USA Today, No. 6 AP. Texas ' sophomore quarterback Vince Young tallied the first score of the game, rushing the ball up the middle for a 20-yard touchdown and the extra point by Mangum was good. Young served as a catalyst for the Longhorn offense, accounting 192 of Texas ' 444 total yards rushing and also passing for 180 yards on the day. Michigan finally responded to the Longhorns early in the 2 nd quarter with a pass by freshmen quarterback Chad Henne to senior wide-receiver Braylon Edwards for a 39-yard touchdown. Henne was the first-ever true freshmen quarterback to start in the Rose Bowl. He completed 18 of 34 passes for 227 yards earning a school record and a Rose Bowl-tying record four touchdowns. Edwards, in his last game for the team, capped off a historic college career with 10 receptions for 109 yards and three touchdowns. Finishing the half tied 14-14, the Longhorns took the lead 21-14 on a touchdown by Young in the beginning of the third quarter. The Wolverines answered soon after, tying the score at 21-21 with a pass from Henne to junior wide-receiver Steve Breaston for a 50-yard touchdown. The University gained its first lead mid-way through the 3 rd quarter as Henne completed a 9-yard pass to Edwards. Michigan added to their lead with a 44-yard field goal by sophomore kicker Garrett Rivas. Michigan allowed Texas to score once more but retained the lead until the last play of the game when UT ' s senior place-kicker completed a 37-yard field goal to lead the Longhorns to victory.

Worcester photo Flooding the Big House m on command THEV T IHE THE FIELD rOT VCinu tntnt rS, the Friday nights had to be easy: no partying, no staying out late, and no morning-after hangovers. Then, on Saturday mornings they had to arrive at the field by eight to warm-up and stretch. However, not all the preparation happened four just hours before the game. Preparation for fall marching band members began some time in August before other students moved in, before the rest of underclassmen woke up at a reasonable hour for class, and before anyone transitioned into " college mode. " Season preparation began with learning new routines and memorizing music. " The Michigan Marching Band (MMB) puts a lot of work into everything it does. In addition to the pre-game show performed each week, we do a new halftime show for each home game, averaging about six or seven different shows each year, " senior lead s nare Erin Ringelman said. Ringelman also commented on the intense prep schedule of each performance, " Usually we only have one week to prepare music and drill for a show. Because of the lack of time, members of the band must spend additional time outside of rehearsals working on music- we memorize all the music we play. " The fall semester of a marching band member was hectic at best. All of that practice and hard work did not even guarantee a spot in the pre-game or halftime show, yet competition was the nature of the band. " The competitive aspect of the Michigan marching band stems from its tradition of being the ' Leaders and Best. ' Every student who wishes to be a part of the MMB is permitted to do so, as there are no cuts ' in the band, " Ringelman said. " There are people who are sophomores and juniors who haven ' t marched a performance once. In some sections, if you are a freshman you can forget about being able to march pre-game until at least next year, " sophomore alto saxophone player Nate Scholten said. Yet, all of the members agreed that the hard work and practice paid off in the end. Possibly the greatest additive to being a member of the marching band was the opportunity to not only travel with the team to South Bend, Indiana, and Columbus, Ohio, but also the chance to follow the football team to bowl games at the end of each season. Junior drum major Dennis Lee described away games as, " A chance to show the world what Michigan is all about. We pride ourselves on representing the University with the utmost class and excellence, while at the same time cheering our team to victory.

Neff photo 2 a Keeping their heads in the game while SHOOTIRG FOR THE SHV Throughout the SCClSOn, the men ' s golf team showed consistency in their play and maintained high hopes for the following year. Junior Christian Vozza admitted to feeling slightly disappointed about last year ' s overall season. However, having the team shoot its best round of the year at the Big Ten Championships helped boost spirits. " On the last day of the Big Ten Tournament, everyone clicked together. We were two under par as a team. It was a great way to end the season, " Vozza said. Sophomore Kevin Dore agreed about the tournament performance: " We were in bad position after the first few rounds, but we stepped up when we had to. " Two under par was enough to tie for seventh place overall with Dore leading the team with an overall Big Ten Championship score of 214. The team ' s best finish of the year came during the Furman Intercollegiate, where Vozza and Dore saw a turning point in the season. " Finishing third at Furman was a good stepping stone. It boosted our attitudes, " Dore said. Vozza expressed equally upbeat sentiments. " The sky is the limit. I wouldn ' t doubt us being in the top three of the Big Ten next year, or even winning it in two years. We have the talent, and if we work hard, we can do it, " Vozza said. Vozza realized that a player can never count on one aspect of his game being great every single day on the course and even went so far as to call himself a mediocre player. However, Vozza ' s stats proved otherwise: he played in all 12 tournaments, led the Maize and Blue in four events, and averaged a career-best 75 strokes per round. " I ' m just the kind of player that sticks it out. I never give up. A lot of people call me a dirty player because I can get up and down from anywhere, " Vozza. said. Admittedly, though, he realized he needed to improve his consistency in striking the ball. " Ninety percent of the game is chipping and putting. You can save a lot of shots, " Vozza said. Dore also emphasized the importance of putting and considered it to be one of his own downfalls last season. " Putting is all confidence. If you think you ' re going to make a shot, then you probably will, " Dore said. Perhaps it is those small shots and great attitudes that could help Vozza, Dore, and the rest of the team accomplish their goals of winning more tournaments and placing higher in the Big Ten next season. " In the last two years, we have improved in every tournament. We still have steps to make, though, " Dore said. Fifth year senior Robert Tighe takes a shot from the fairway towards the pin.

The Wolverines had three women finishing the meet in the top 15. After two meets of lackluster performances, the Wolverines earned their first spring meet win at the Saluki Invitational. Junior Laura Olin once again led the Wolverines to victory. Olin won her second career tournament by shooting a 148 on 36 holes. First-year student AH Stinson earned seventh place at the invitational shooting a 156. The Wolverines then headed to Ohio State to participate in the 2004 Big Ten Championships. Stepping up in the championship was first-year student Brianna Broderick. Broderick shot in the 70s in each of her four rounds, giving her a total of 306 for the meet and the ability to hang on to tenth place. The Wolverines finished with a tie for 5th place with Wisconsin. The only Wolverine that received an individual invitation to the NCAA Regional Final was Laura Olin. Olin finished her season with 229 on 54 holes. Her score was just under the qualifying score to make it to the NCAA Women ' s Golf Championship. " It (the regional championship) was a great experience. Again, to get a chance to play against some of the top girls in the region and hang with them feels really good. I learned a lot, " Olin said. During the season, Olin was awarded the Big Ten Conference Women ' s Golfer of the Week (March 19, 2004). It was the first time in her career and only the fourth time in Michigan history it had been received by a Wolverine.

Ending the 2004 season with a fifth place finish in the NCAA finals, the team hoped to repeat their success. Head Coach Kurt Colder in his eighth season said, " I expect the team to have its best performances from a consistency stand point at the Big Ten and NCAA championships. They should be a strong contender for both the Big Ten and the NCAA team titles. " Senior Captain Chris Gatti added, " We are much more experienced this year; everyone is returning from last year. We are a team full of strong guys with a lot of potential. " Key members of this year ' s team included junior Justin Laury, who tied for fifth overall in the 2004 NCAA finals, senior Geoff Corrigan, junior Gerry Signorelli and senior Eddie Umphrey. Colder said, " I am also very optimistic that Chris Gatti, who was coming off surgery last year, will be able to earn us some high scores this year. " The team stayed fully committed to gymnastics over the summer. Gatti explained, " Gymnastics is not a sport that necessarily has an off season. Everyone has to train year round, either by staying on campus or at their local gym. This fall, everyone came back ready to compete and were in shape. " Over the summer, Corrigan, Umphrey, Laury, and Singorelli all competed in the USA Gymnastics Championship. " We had four guys training intensely for USA Championships last summer, and that experience is going to have a great impact on their performance this season, " Bottke said. For the 2005 season, the greatest team obstacles included improving scores on both the parallel bars and the rings. Collectively, the team felt that the pommel horse and the floor would be their greatest strengths this season. As a member of the Big Ten, the University was part of one of the most competitive conferences in regards to men ' s gymnastics. As Gatti said, " Penn State is the reigning NCAA champion in men ' s gymnastics, and they are always one of our biggest competitors. Ohio State is also in the Big Ten, and we finished behind them in the NCAA championship. I am looking forward to our meet against Stanford because the Cardinals are a men ' s gymnastics powerhouse. We have a lot that we can prove and gain from coming out strong in that particular meet. Overall, nothing is impossible. If we have a great meet for the NCAA finals, we could walk away with the title. " Senior Geoff Corrigan concentrates while balancing himself on the rings. At the Windy City Invitational.

Vault and floor are her areas of big contribution. Freshmen Nellie Kippley will add depth in the all around and have real impact on beam and floor. Megan Moore will also add some depth to our program. We are returning six Ail-Americans this year so we have a lot to look forward to in our upperclassman, and senior Elise Ray will compete in her final season this year hoping to add to the three national championship titles she already holds. " Senior Chelsea Kroll added, " Really, more than the ' superstars ' of our team, it is important to recognize the significance of the ' underdog, ' people who you normally wouldn ' t think make line-ups or bring in huge scores. These people are who define the depth of a line-up, and it is these people who will determine whether or not we will be strong enough to beat the traditional gymnastics powerhouses like UCLA or Georgia. " Over the off-season, to increase their depth, each member of the team made an effort to increase not only their difficulty but also strengthen the minute details. Senior captain Ray said, " One difference in this pre-season was that we worked on strength training, a new method that we will continue to follow throughout the year... Gymnastics is just as much a physical sport as it is a mental sport and often the teams that do the best are the ones that can survive the long season. " One aspect that has shown weakness for the team was the parallel bar. However, Kroll felt the teams greatest strength rested in the team dynamics. " Our dynamic this year has felt very special, as we are all very close yet constantly push each other to be better. This is a tough balance to strike but I think that it is often times this competitive camaraderie that makes or breaks a team, " she said. Meets at UCLA and Nebraska highlighted this season ' s schedule. Plocki said about their goals, " We will first focus on winning the Big Ten, and then we will set our sights on the NCAA Championship and qualifying for the super six finals at Nationals this year.

Neff photo ore Sports More Teams More Competition THROUGH CLUB SPORTS Although their intensity appeared equal in competition and training, not all sports at the University occurred at the varsity level. In addition to intramural and club sports, there existed yet another category: club varsity. The University ' s club varsity sports including men ' s lacrosse, women ' s synchronized skating, men ' s crew, and women ' s lacrosse. Men ' s lacrosse set high goals to start the season. After winning the Central Collegiate Lacrosse Association National Championship for four years in a row before losing it last year to Oakland University, the Wolverines hoped to reclaim the title. Up until losing to Oakland, the team had never lost a conference game. Regardless, the men ' s lacrosse team played against challenging teams from across the nation. Senior midfielder Brian Vincent saw the hardest part of the sport to be translating their hard practices into wins on the field. Another minor obstacle, though, was the team ' s club varsity status. " ! consider us to be true student athletes: we play because we love it. We don ' t get any scholarships, " Vincent said. Most of the team ' s funding, like all the University ' s club varsity sports, came primarily from team sponsors, alumni, and the players themselves. " I hope lacrosse becomes varsity someday. With University support, we could recruit players from all over the country, " Vincent said. " We practice every day and have games every weekend during the season. It ' s just as intense as varsity. " The women ' s lacrosse team experienced the same intensity and club varsity status as the men did. The women ' s lacrosse team hoped to capture the national title as well. Their goal seemed quite attainable as the team enjoyed a preseason number-one ranking. Senior team captain Katie Finkenstaedt shared the team ' s optimism: " We ' re pretty team- oriented, so I want to play as best I can. It ' s my last year, so I ' d like to Amidst the cool morning air, seniors Nate make it count. " High expectations were especially important because Wood and J osh Brown row for the IRA 8tn Place Varsity 4. Wood was the President for the last four years, the University of California (Santa Barbara) had won the national championship. Regardless, like the men ' s team, the women ' s team experienced similar drawbacks stemming from its club varsity status. Exceptionally late practice times and limited practice field access were two disadvantages. " All of us wish [lacrosse] was a Continued on page 1 54 of the team for the second year in a row. Tedjasukmana photo Continued from page 152 varsity sport [...] which is the ultimate goal of the program, " Finkenstaedt said. " Lacrosse is varsity at other schools, and is gradually breaking into the Big Ten. " Similarly, men ' s rowing was growing in popularity. The team hoped to achieve their highest finish by placing their first boat in the top six at the Intercollegiate Rowing Association National Championships. Up until this year, the team ' s best finish had been llth. " [Rowing] is not really fun. It ' s all hard work and there ' s no glory to be had. It ' s a sport that rewards people who work hard, " senior Josh Brown said. Brown explained that rowing was run as if it were a varsity program. The team practiced together at least once everyday and the athletes also completed a second workout on their own. Brown said that the main difference between rowing and other varsity sports was lack of funding and scholarships for the athletes. With similar goals, the women ' s club varsity synchronized skating team hoped to break into the top four at the National Synchronized Skating Championships. " The hardest part about being on the team was learning to trust everyone. Half the team hasn ' t done synchronized skating before, " sophomore Sarah Bradbury said. The club varsity team, subdivided into a senior team and a collegiate team, practiced anywhere from three to five times a week as a team and a few more times on their own, which is significantly less than the varsity sports at the University. " We don ' t waste our time on the ice, and we try to attend at least one freestyle session a week, " Bradbury said. Although Bradbury admits that currently the team is not as intense as varsity sports, she hoped that one day it would, in fact, be a varsity sport. " [Synchronized skating] is an emerging sport. It ' s even making its way to the Olympics in 2010. It will be a varsity sport [at the University] eventually, " Bradbury said. Regardless, varsity club sports, enjoyed intense competion kept alive by the hopes of one day becoming varsity . The men ' s rugby team, also a club, gave team members an opportunity to travel around the country, as well as the world, playing rugby as well as participating in community service events. Last year, the team traveled to Argentina, and this year the team traveled to Thailand to help with Tsunami relief efforts. The team was undefeated, with ann 11-0 record in the fall, and participated in national competition starting in the winter.

' icJjasukmana photo NCAA tournament competition ends early due to a Seeded 2nd in the NCAA Northeast Regional, the Michigan hockey team faced New Hampshire and Boston College in the first and second rounds, respectively. The Maize and Blue surfaced unfazed, beating New Hampshire 4-1. Unfortunately, the top seeded Boston College team proved too much for the Wolverines to handle, triumphing 3-2 in an overtime victory. Although New Hampshire had home team advantage, Michigan wasted little time silencing the rowdy crowd of 10,000 plus. During their face-off on the evening of March 27, 2004, the Wolverines quickly ran up a 4-0 lead against the disgruntled UNH defense. Late in the third period, New Hampshire finally scored on Wolverine sophomore goalie Al Montoya. The win allotted the Wolverines their 43rd all-time NCAA tournament win and also moved Michigan past the first r ound for the sixth consecutive year. Highlights of the game included sophomore forward Brandon Kaleniecki, scoring 1:05 into the game, the fifth fastest goal to open a game in an NCAA Regional. With the win, Coach Red Berenson moved into sole possession of llth place on the all-time NCAA wins list. The meeting between Boston College and Michigan on March 28, 2004 brought out the best in both teams. Freshmen Mike Brown scored the first goal for the Maize and Blue, giving them the lead, which Montoya kept in tact for the remainder of the first period. By the end of three periods, the score was tied at 2-2 leading the game into a challenging overtime scrimmage. Boston College was able to capitalize during overtime leaving the Wolverines ' dreams of advancing to the NCAA ' s Frozen Four unattainable. With the loss, the Wolverines ' season ended, but the talent from the season did not go unnoticed. Montoya earned the Jofa All- American and was also recognized as a member of the West Second team. Posting a 26-12-2 season for the Maize and Blue, Montoya set the University ' s career record for shutouts with ten.

The highlights of the first half of the season included a series sweep of Michigan State (November 18th and 20 th ), and only two losses, one against Ferris State and one to Northwestern. The team consisted often seniors, six of which played consistently. Junior goaltender Al Montoya said ' It ' s huge to finish off the first half of the year strong, just like any part of the season. Especially around this time when you are taking off for the Christmas season you want to go home with some confidence. " To end the first half of the season, Michigan faced Wisconsin and Minnesota, who were ranked second and third in the nation, respectively. The history between the Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota hockey squads ran deep. Each season, the teams faced each other in the College Hockey Showcase. Each team, being usually among the top in the nation, all met head-to-head in this one weekend to seek victory. As senior caption Eric Nystrom said about the importance of winning those games, " Since Michigan hockey has been around, Minnesota and Wisconsin are the teams that they have played against. There ' s a lot of history, especially this weekend because it ' s the number one, two and three teams all playing each other on the same weekend. " The team, had to perform well and win both games in order to keep momentum. " In order to finish off the season strong, it is vital to strengthen our team defense. We have a lot of offensive firepower that can win us some games but there are going to be some games where the puck isn ' t going to be going in for us and in that case, our defense is going to have to step up, " Nystrom said about the team ' s weaknesses. Among the greatest of strengths for the team this year included a young agile squad with excellent speed. The team started the new year with four consecutive wins, two against Western Michigan and two against Alaska-Fairbanks. The first loss came to 10 Ohio State, in ____ Columbus, but the Wolverines came back the next night to defeat the Buckeyes 6-3. Winning the National Championship remained the greatest goal for the team. Nystrom said, " We ' ve been so close a couple of times to the National Championship and this season we definitely have the experience. I think that anything less than the National Championship would be a disappointment.

Not only did they win the Big Ten Championship, but they also placed third at the NCAA finals. " Before the Big Ten meet, we had been losing most of our dual meets and were very dissatisfied with the season, but then we hit a new level at that regatta. We wanted it, " senior Cristin McCarty said. At that very same meet, the Wolverines had come from behind to beat the undefeated and number- one ranked Ohio State Buckeyes. " We shocked everyone when we won. We had incredibly strong leadership and commitment by everyone to help turn the team around in any way they could, " sophomore Carla Bezold said. To add to last year ' s amazing season, assistant coach Emily Ford earned the NCAA Coach of the Year award. Coming off of these overwhelming successes, the Maize and Blue looked forward to an equally successful season this year. The Wolverines started the season by competing against Michigan State, Eastern Michigan, and Ohio State in a pair of non-scoring meets. Later down the road, several difficult races awaited the women ' s rowing team. Among the Big Ten regattas, the Ohio State dual on April 2nd presented the biggest challenge. On the national level, both Bezold and McCarty agreed that other fierce opponents included Brown, Yale, and the University of Virginia. McCarty attributed these teams ' success to hard work and extensive recruiting. Surely, though, these teams ' workouts were dwarfed when compared to those of the Wolverines. " The hardest part about rowing is definitely the training. We put in a lot of hours, " McCarty said. The team rowed every morning from 6 to 8:30 a.m., then either lifted weights or did ergometers in the afternoon. " The winters are the hardest part because we are indoors all the time. It ' s hard to maintain excitement and a positive attitude when all you do is train, " Bezold said. The team hoped all this hard work would pay off: they planned to win another Big Ten Championship and place even higher at the NCAA finals. " [Rowing] is such a team sport, so it ' s hard to have stars. We have an incredibly strong and deep senior class, though, " Bezold said. Bezold also felt that as long as the team improved every day of the season, the only place they could go was up. Senior Christin Plunkett carries a boat from the water back to the boathouse.

However, the team earned its first opportunity to play at the varsity level just five years ago. This season, the team lost the last of the remaining members from the inaugural varsity season. This season also marked the beginning of the program ' s elite status. Before preseason competition, the team set several goals. " Our major goals for the season were to win Big Ten Championships and the NCAA Championships, as well as to be recognized and respected as one of the best soccer programs annually, " said senior tri-captain and goalkeeper Joe Zawacki. In order to attain these goals, the players knew they had to outwork their opponents. As the season approached, the team was plagued with injuries and began the season down six players, including tri-captain and forward Knox Cameron, who was titled a preseason National Player of the Year. Despite the amount of injuries, the team looked upon the season as an opportunity. " The injuries allowed younger players to step up and perform. It also brought the team closer together because we have bonded in the face of adversity, " Cameron said. This was their chance to prove themselves. The team earned its best start i n history with a 6-0 record. The team also appeared in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America ' s poll for the first time, ranking third in the nation. Down several key players at the start of Big Ten play , the team began to struggle. However, after a heart-wrenching loss to Michigan State in overtime, the remaining players pulled themselves together and managed to earn an overtime win at Wisconsin that helped bring them through a steady end to the regular season. In the Big Ten Tournament, Cameron returned from injury and scored the lone first round goal in overtime to carry the Wolverines past Ohio State. Despite losing to Northwestern in the second round, the team earned a bid to the NCAA Championship Tournament. After beating Akron at home, the team traveled to Indiana, where they played a tough, but well fought game. Despite a 1-0 loss, the coach and team were happy with their efforts and the overall season. The team attributed their success to their high intensity workouts and dedication to the team.

The womens soccer team prided themselves in the fact that they overcame this difficulty in a short period of time, and furthermore used their individual talents to their advantage. Bringing together high school standouts from across the nation, the squad set a group mission in early August. Senior tri-captain Rachel Rothenbach said, " Our mission was made up of various phrases and words, such as consistency in practice, warm-up, and when we ' re playing. " The team also took an off the field approach. They made a priority of taking personal responsibility for activities that included eating habits and sleeping patterns. " Basically we pride ourselves on being respectful of our teammates and working hard so we can not only have fun, but be successful throughout the season, " Rothenbach said. These objectives aimed to help the team reach their goals of dominating Big Ten regular season play, and consequently, earning a conference title. Nevertheless, the team ' s success was hindered by four knee injuries, keeping several key players off the field. Senior tri-captain Laura Tanchon said, " It ' s always hard to look over and see your teammates sitting on the sidelines, wishing they could play but knowing that they can ' t. We ' ve had to adjust to the injuries and have younger, inexperienced players fill their spots. " The injuries forced the players closer together, and pushed them harder each day. As a result, the team began the season 6-2-1 and stepped up their play at the start of Big Ten competition. Each player took to heart their role on the team. Whether officially titled a captain or not, each girl was a leader and gave their all both on and off the field, no matter what their current ranking or position in the league may have been. Rothenbach said, " The most inspiring part of this group is that no one 13 E f was a quitter. Everyone was ambitious and able to _ ,_ _ _ | persevere in order to support their teammates and HJ I work hard for one another. " The womens soccer team was truly a portrait of teamwork.

Hard work and determination were also recognized individually with several Wolverines earning high honors. Hosting the NCAA Regional Tournament, Michigan stepped up to the challenge as they defeated Canisius, Notre Dame, and Oregon State to claim the Regional Crown. Second baseman Tiffany Haas was named as the tournament ' s Most Valuable Player. During competition she went two for four at the plate while hitting a clutch single to help capture the win. After winning regionals, the Wolverines advanced to the Women ' s College World Series to battle Louisiana State University. Michigan fought hard, including a 12th inning homerun by infielder Grace Leutele. " It felt really good. I told [Nicole] Motycka I was going to get her a hit. I knew I had to come through at the plate with a runner on base. I knew we had to score and I think the homerun pumped us up, " sophomore Leutele said. Despite the rally, Michigan fell to LSU in the 13th inning. In the second game, Michigan battled Stanford. As they struggled to match the two-run deficit, the Wolverines fell in a quick play at the plate. " It ' s a tough game to lose. This has just been an outstanding team. I ' m proud of my kids. This has been a great year for us. Our pitchers pitched their guts out, and we ' re thankful for that. It was a great season, and I know we feel bad, but we ' re not going to feel bad for very long, " head coach Carol Hutchins said. Individual accomplishments flourished as the season concluded. The largest of which was when the team swept the Big Ten honors for pitcher, player, and coach. These were awarded to Motycka, Jessica Merchant, and Hutchins, respectively. In competition, Merchant attained the University and Big Ten record of 15 homeruns and Big Ten performance in RBI (48) and slugging percentage (.776). Motycka posted a 20-3 record with a 0.68 ERA giving her the position as the seventh ranked pitcher in the nation. Other Wolverines were selected to the first Big Ten Team included Haas, Leutele, and Monica Schock. Michigan ended their season ranked sixth.

With Olympic athletes, a new head coach, multiple NCAA champions, and a powerful senior class, the team looked forward to a strong season. Coming into the year, the men were ranked ninth in the first dual meet poll of the season. The team also placed fifth at last year ' s NCAA championships and second at the Big Ten championships. By the end of their first meet at Eastern Michigan, the men continued to build on last year ' s incredible success. The men claimed an unprecedented 158-85 win over Eastern Michigan University, winning 11 of the 13 scheduled events. Chris Dejong, junior freestyler and backstroker, dominated the meet with a win in the 100 and 200-yard freestyle events along with the 400-yard medley relay. Senior breaststroker and butterflyer Christian Vanderkaay also had huge success, winning the 50 yard freestyle and 200-yard breaststroke. Junior diver Jake Boehm even posted Michigan ' s top score in the one-meter springboard diving competition with a total of 255.75, placing him in second. According to head coach Bob Bowman, " The men certainly met my expectations for this meet. This is more of a yardstick for us to see where we are in training. I thought we swam very well, particularly the freshmen. " This was Bowman ' s first year as head coach at the University and he was extremely excited to be working with a group of such talented men. Bowman said, " I am very pleased with the roster. I haven ' t seen a closer knit group of guys and really expect each of them to make a significant contribution to the team. " Junior freestyler and butterflyer Davis Tarwater echoed Bowman ' s enthusiasm and predictions for the team. He said, " Our overall team dynamic is incredible. We have strong leadership with our juniors and seniors plus a really strong class of freshmen. " Tarwarter also noted that, " I want to set ourselves up for a good year. We want to win the NCAA and Big Ten. " However, he pointed out that their biggest competition would be Stanford, Texas, and Indiana. According to Vanderkaay, " Our biggest strength is that we are a small cohesive group of guys that are very st rong in distance events.

Their motto, " Infinity, " represents, as senior co-captain Erica Watts described, " The infinite number of possibilities we have with our team this year. Nothing is impossible. " The team, 1 st in the Big Ten Championship and 13 th in the NCAA last year, graduated close to half of last year ' s team. Watts said, " We have a young team: 16 freshmen and 17 returnees. Some would say that the inexperience will hurt in pressure situations, but I believe the naivety will only help [the team]. The freshmen will just go out there and swim their hearts out and that is all [the women ' s swimming team] can ask of them. " Helping out the freshmen were key returning swimmers senior Amy McCullough (100 freestyle) and sophomore Lindsey Smith (200 freestyle), both individual Big Ten Champions. In diving, freshman Elyse Lee was a four-time Michigan Diver of the Year. Among the talented freshmen class are Olympic trial qualifier Justine Mueller (individual medley), and Peruvian Olympian Valeria Silvia (breaststroke). Along with improving rankings and experience, harboring leadership was among the top goals of the team this season. Senior co-captain Amy Seskevics said, " We have such a large team that it ' s important for everyone to be on the same page in terms of work ethic and goals. Leadership helps everyone stick together. " Watts added, " We can replace swimmers and divers, but it ' s harder to replace leadership skills you acquire over four years. " The team also hoped to retain a team GPA of over 3.2 and personal records for everyone at the Big Ten Championship. The team was projected, based on points from last season, to place 4 ch in the Big Ten and 15 th in Nationals ' . " We lost a lot of points from last year ' s graduating class. So we have our work cut out for us. Everyone is extremely excited and all the youth on this team makes anything seem possible, hence the infinite sign oo (infinite). Realistically speaking, Coach Jim Richardson would be happy with a top three finish in the Big Ten ' s and top 15 at NCAA ' s, but I believe we are a lot deeper than the predictions and again, anything is possible.

Then junior Michael Rubin represented Michigan in the singles bracket where he finished 1-2 before his elimi- nation in the first round. In doubles action, then first-year student Brian Hung and then senior Anthony Jackson also finished 1-2. " The opportunity to host the ITA tournament got our team exposure, " Rubin said. " It also brought attention to our new facility which will draw attention and create increased interest in our program. " Michigan was given the honor of hosting this event for the 2004 season as well from November 6 through the 9. The Wolverines were also represented at the Intercollegiate Tennis Associa- tion ' s All- American Round by Rubin in the singles division. Rubin ousted two competi- tors while he played in the 64-player main draw. He then advanced to the round of 16 where he downed other opponents but fell in his third match to be eliminated from the All-American Championships. Highlights from the dual season included conquering Northwestern, Michigan State, and Iowa. " Those first several matches of the year were definitely one of the team ' s highest accomplishments, " Rubin said. " We were playing really well against some good teams. " The Wolverines fought a hard match against number-one ranked Illinois, but were defeated in the end with a score of 2 to 5. _ . o. Several injuries throughout the course of the season forced the team to make adjustments. As the Big Ten tournament approached, everyone was playing better. The Big Ten tournament concluded with a loss of 4-2 to Michigan State giving the Wolverines a season record of 13-9. Michigan ' s number three doubles pair, junior Vinny Gossain and first-year student Steve Peretz, and number one ranked doubles pair, first-year student Ryan Heller and Hung, both won matches. All-Big Ten Conference honors were awarded to Rubin, who earned a record of 8-7 in the dual season at number one singles. He later finished 12-4 over- all and 7-2 regionally.

Junior Michelle DaCosta and first- year student Elizabeth Exon finished 51st and 85th, respectively, in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association singles rankings. DaCosta completed her most successful season with Michigan thus far, earning personal bests of 22-15 overall. Meanwhile, Exon was named Midwest Rookie of the Year and received Big Ten honors. She boasted a team-leading 27-13 overall record, just two wins short of Michigan ' s top spot for all-time freshman wins. " It was so exciting to win the Rookie of the Year award; coming in as a freshman, that is not something I ever expected, " Exon said. On the doubles front, DaCosta and first-year student Kara Delicata ranked 27th in the final rankings with a 15-10 overall score. The 29th ranked Wolverines took on Northwestern in the Big Ten Championship semi-finals after routing Wisconsin 4-3. Although Delicata and senior Kavitha Tipirneni won their singles matches, and Tipirneni and senior Chrissie Nolan collected a doubles win, Michigan fell to the Wildcats 4-2, tying for third place in the conference. " The loss to Northwestern was disappointing, but it was also a good sign to us that we were only a couple points away from beating one of the top teams in the country, " Exon said. " It shows that we have the ability to beat any team. " Unfortunately, the Wolverines were eliminated at the NCAA regionals by Stanford, 0-4. Michigan team members DaCosta and Delicata represented the Wolverines in H the NCAA Individual Championships. DaCosta competed in both singles and doubles fc_ S play alongside Delicata. This marked only the second time in program history that Michigan has sent both single and doubles participants to the championship. DaCosta advanced to the set of 32, where she lost to California ' s Raquel Kops-Jones 6-3, 7-5. In the doubles portion, the Wolverine pair also proceeded to the set of 32, where they were defeated by Marshall University ' s Jessica Johnson and Ashley Kroh 6-1, 4-6, 6-4. The women, who finished with an overall record of 17-7 and a record of 6-4 in the Big Ten, tied for third place in the conference.

The team had not fared well since placing third for the season in 1995. Sophomore middle distance runner Andrew Ellerton appreciated the team ' s success. " Getting third at the Big Ten indoor meet was pretty big for us. It set the tone for next season. " Several runners posted personal best times, which helped contribute to the season ' s strong finish. Ellerton alone dropped three seconds in his 800-meter individual race. " I knew I had improved a little during the fall, but there was no indication that I would run that fast that early in the season, " Ellerton said. He later won the same event at the Big Ten Outdoor Championships. Many other runners experienced equally successful meets. Junior distance runner Nathan Brannen won the NCAA title in the 800-meter individual event for the second year in a row. In addition, Ellerton, Brannen, junior hurdler DarNell Talbert, and sophomore distance runner Nick Willis broke the NCAA and world distance medley relay records with a time of 9:27:27 at the NCAA Indoor Championships. At that particular meet, the team placed fifth overall and placed eighth at the Big Ten Outdoor Championship meet a few weeks later. Although the finishes were higher than in years past, the Wolverines acknowledged their weaknesses and aimed to do better next season. " Doing well at indoors takes an overall team to succeed. We are a distance program, " Brannen said. Brannen ' s goal was to finish in the top three of four teams next year at the NCAA Indoor Championship meet.

However, the beginning of the season was only a glimmer of success compared to what was to come. Individually, the girls performed better than ever. Senior distance runner Lindsey Gallo earned the Verizon Academic All American of the Year. She was only the second Wolverine to win this prestigious award. At the Big Ten Championship, Gallo won both the 1500-meter and the 800-meter races. Gallo, along with teammate senior javelin thrower Lindsey Stephenson, also received All American Honors. Stephenson was the first Wolverine to be awarded this honor in the javelin event. Senior thrower Melissa Bickett was the 2004 team captain. " Being team captain and leading my team was a wonderful experience because all of the girls on the track team are dedicated to the team and their events. Also, there was a lot of support with the other captains and seniors, " Bickett said. Bickett won her third Academic All Big Ten Award and was also named to the 2004 All Big Ten Conference Outdoor First Team along with sophomore pole vaulter Elizabeth Boyle. Boyle earned multiple honors in the pole vault as well as she was the first Wolverine to clear a thirteen-foot barrier and the first Wolverine to win a Big Ten pole vault title. In order to be this successful, the girls needed a great leader. Their head coach, James Henry, won his sixth Big Ten Outdoor Coach of the Year award. Sophomore middle distance runner Monica Dunn said, " Coach Henry really makes sure that it ' s a team environment all the time and he calls it a ' family. ' He tries to make it so everybody gets along and is comfortable with each other. He ' s really experienced and knows what he ' s talking about. He ' s always there for everyone ' s needs. " This was his third straight time Henry received the award. Working together, the team produced tremendous results as well as winning a third straight Big Ten Outdoor title. They also placed second in the Big Ten Indoor Tournament, took third at the NCAA Mideast Regional, tied for 19 th at the NCAA Indoor Tournament, and captured 41 " at the NCAA Outdoor Tournament. Bickett said, " I believe the accomplishments of the team this year were amazing. We had a lot of injuries and instead of giving up, Michigan decided to step it up. Many people set personal records at big tens. Others chased the jersey in front of them to get that extra point. " Concentrating on her form, senior Lindsey Stephenson throws the javelin during the Big 10 Outdoor Championships. Stephenson won the event with a personal best throw of 1 65-6 feet. L.

Returning senior outside hitter and captain Jennifer Gandolph already held two records in both digs and attempts for the University, and was well on her way to breaking Michigan ' s all-time record for kills as well. Fifth-year student and setter Lisa Gamalski was also expected to break the all-time setting record by the end of the year. When put together, the duo were distinguished and feared by their opponents. Michigan played Michigan State on October 6, and with the fifth largest crowd in Cliff Keen Arena history, they beat the Spartans, holding them to a -.053 hitting percentage in the fourth game. The win against Michigan State continued what was recognized as volleyball ' s best start of a season in its history at the University. However, the returning players alone didn ' t attain this respectable start to the season. For four straight matches, first-year student Katie Bruzdzinski led Michigan in kills and eventually set a career high of 20 against Illinois (not to forget an additional nine digs) - at one point during the fall seasons she had the team ' s third best kill average - 2.54 per game. She also led the Big Ten in service aces, averaging 0.46 per game. In addition to her recognized play, first-year student Lyndsay Miller also exhibited a persistent, enthusiastic attitude. Miller was known to pump her fists in the air or shout to encourage her teammates when they lost momentum or the game suddenly became close. Not specifying any game as being a more important, Miller preferred to focus on each game individually. " We just need to improve every game, " Miller said. " I think every game is going to be a tough game in the Big Ten, and Eyeing the upcoming attack, sophomore Erin Cobbler prepares for a block. Cobbler contributed 1 2 kills against number eight undefeated Ohio State alongside teammates Miller, Pflum, and Bruzdinski. C.

Head coach Matt Anderson, in his second full season, believed that the team had the capability to rank in the top five in the nation. " We have the best goalie in the nation, one of the top goalies to ever play the game, Betsey Armstrong, " Anderson explained. " To go along with Betsey, our seniors include All- American Sheetal Narsai and other senior starters Erin Brown, Jo Antonsen, and Meg Knudsen. Also returning is our leading scorer from last year, sophomore Shana Welch. " As reigning CWPA Western Division Champions, Michigan looked to regain the title and beat their biggest rival, Indiana, for the 16 th straight time. Anderson explained, " Though [Indiana is] a nationally ranked top ten team as well, [the Michigan women ' s water polo team] has won three straight conference championships and actually has never lost to Indiana. I don ' t ever want to lose to them. Our men ' s swim team has gone 73 years without losing to Northwestern, and I would like to do the same with Indiana. " Junior Lindsey Hitchcock described the rivalry: " We have never lost to IU. They are our biggest rival and they always give us a good game. " Furthermore, the team ' s pivotal games would be against Arizona State, Hawaii, Stanford, and USC. Some of the greatest obstacles that the team will face this year include, as Anderson said, " Getting over the hump and back to the Final Four which is where we were when our seniors were freshman. The Seniors have had an incredible four year run and they deserve another Final Four to top it off. " Hitchcock expanded, " We are all confident that with our hard work (in and out of season) that we can have one of the best seasons our program has seen. " Both Coach Anderson ' s expectations and the team ' s expectations remained high for the 2004- 2005 season. Anderson said, " I expect us to be in the East NCAA regional final (as we were last year) and then anything goes after that. We will be hosting the NCAA Championship, so I would like to be playing in our home pool!

" We can place attitude and wrestles to their capabilities, " junior 125-pound weight class wrestler the University must finish the season in the top seven in the Big Ten. With such leadership as Moos, fifth-year senior Ryan Berlin, and senior Ryan Churella, anything seemed possible. Moos felt that the leaders ' positive attitudes and leadership helped the team substantially. Furthermore, Berlin ' s exceptional talent set an example for the team. Individual NCAA champion two seasons ago, Bertin looked to regain his title this year in the 157-pound weight class. Competition, though, was steep. Ohio State, Stanford, Iowa, and Minnesota provided the greatest challenges for the team. " The Big Ten in general is usually the best conference, " Bertin said. In addition, Bertin found the national dual meets to be harder than most meets. " The problem with the national d ual meets is that you never know who you are going to wrestle, and only the best 12 teams in the country compete, " Bertin said. However, expectations to place high at the NCAA championships did not come without doubt and struggle. Staying healthy during the season, both mentally and physically, was always a big concern for the wrestlers. " Wrestling can be mentally taxing. You have to be able to persevere mentally, " Bertin said. Moos also noted that it was especially important to stay positive and remain focused when losing weight for competition. Staying focused was easy to do when the team practiced excessively. Often in addition to an afternoon workout, many wrestlers chose to do an individual morning workout too, especially when they needed to lose weight. " The workouts are as intense as they can get, " Bertin said. These difficult workouts fueled the team ' s hopes for a successful season. By Robert Fowler team had even higher hopes for this year.

What normally housed the largest crowd watching a football game in America became a place for friends and family to join and celebrate their graduates ' years of accomplishment. Tedja$ukmana photo G RADUATE S By Eun-Jeong Kim he culmination of years of hard work, great friendship, school spirit, and endless fun were all marked at Spring Commencement. The last few months of the semester seemed surreal to seniors, as they took classes and went out with friends, yet knew in the back of their minds it was not going to stay that way for much longer. Friends made a point of spending more time together, lightening g C their work load and making the most of their last moments as a 3 c student at the University. Some spent their time applying for jobs while others attempted to visit every bar in Ann Arbor one last time. Walking down State Street, passing Steve and Barry ' s and Angell Hall, was a bittersweet experience for students, as they became comfortable with their lives in Ann Arbor, yet were ready to move on to the next chapter. Saying goodbye to professors and friends, all of whom became a second family during their time here, was hard. But graduates would keep the love they felt for Ann Arbor in their hearts, with " Hail to the Victors " always chanting in their minds. Tall pine trees hide the top of Burton Memorial Tower, located in Ingalls Mall. The 2 1 2 foot tall, 1 9,848 square foot tower was a landmark to students, and the songs played by the carillon each day always grew to be a familiar sound among students. J. Neff photo . The Duderstadt Center, located on North Campus, provides students a quite place to do homework and take a break from class. Piano performances by students helped to create the relaxing atmosphere the building created. E. Kim photo A few brave students make their way through the cold winter weather towards the Hatcher Graduate Library. The library ' s average weekday hours were from Sam to 2am, allowing students a large time frame to study for classes and exams. J. Neff photo campus memories to stay in mind forever When winter was almost gone and the spring was just starting to warm everyone, the graduating students filled the air with joy and laughter. Their faces had both the innocence of youth as well as the wisdom of the wise. The one thing that all graduates shared in common was a feeling of pride. Of having completed, successfully, an education at one of the top universities in the nation. However, it was not just this education that students carried with them. It was also the experience and opportunity that they encountered - it was their campus life! " The collection of my experiences at the University have been an amalgamation of intellectual stimulation, complete joy, passionate depression, as well as all the other associated emotions. What makes it special is that for the first time in my life, I have not been sheltered from feeling the extent of those emotions. Michigan was a testing ground for all that I was taught to be. The University hence served as a place for me to figure what I am, " graduate mathematics and post-undergraduate student Guha Krishnamurthy said. The diverse campus at the University offered a variety of resources for development and distribution of intellect and ability. Students met people from all parts of the world and intermingled so well to become almost culturally universal. The dorms served as a good haven to develop relationships that lasted for a long time and feelings that helped students to adjust to this new and challenging environment. Everyone had their good memories and their bad memories. Getting caught making noise in the study lounge or being shouted at by fellow students for having a different opinion about a particular football player was all part and parcel of everyone ' s college experiences. All in all the campus served as a home away from home for each and every student. Graduates of two thousand and five I o I Abbasi, Osman West Bloomfield, MI Acemyan, Alexander Ft.

Music and art shows were two ways for students to get away from school work and broaden their cultural horizons. L. Worcester photo taking a break from the daily grind With heavy courseloads and hectic schedules, students looked for various outlets in which to relieve the stress of scholastic life. Parties and bars were common places for students to flock to, however, there were also other fun, crazy, and more imaginative ways that some students used to take a load off. For instance, junior kinesiology student Elynnor Pavlovics said that she personally, " enjoys shopping around on State Street and walking in the Arb. " State Street offered a variety of stores that were fun to shop in even if no purchases were made, such as Urban Outfitters, Stairway to Heaven, as well as a number of University sporting apparel stores. Pavlovics admited that she may not have been that " crazy, " but she did recall other people acting out in interesting ways, such as a group of male friends, who on Halloween climbed a tree in their tighty-whities. " Like this unruly group of young men, junior English and political science major Ramya Raghavan, also found herself coming up with original ways to let off some steam. During the winter, Raghavan went sledding on dining hall trays in the Arb. However, this form of having fun came with a price. " You can get a ticket for $150, " Raghavan added. Aside from illegal activity, Raghavan also spend the cold winter nights venturing out to see the various documentaries that were shown at the State Theater, such as " The Fog of War " and " The Weather Underground. " Other students enjoyed playing pool in the Michigan Union Billiards Room or Pinball Pete ' s, located on South University Avenue. Pool offered an opportunity for students to meet new people in a social atmosphere without the pressures of drinking.

With 20 libraries in the University Library System, the opportunity to find one library that suited a student ' s needs in terms of location, noise, and resource was great. The Harlan Hatcher Graduate Library (the Grad), located in the heart of the Diag on Central Campus, was the largest of the 20 libraries. It housed 3.5 million volumes, including 10,000 journals and periodical subscriptions, written in hundreds of languages. Comprised of two separate, yet connected buildings, the Grad feaured two different architectural styles. The original building, dedicated in 1920, had unique architectural beauty, while the newer building was more modern. This unique architecture was the reason some students chose the Grad as their prime study spot. " I study at the Grad. I like the high ceilings in the reading room, along with the way the tables are set up. It ' s almost like its own community, " sophomore psychology major Natalie Goldstein said. Goldstein also chose the Grad for its noise level ' It ' s much quieter than the UGLi, " she said. The Shapiro Undergraduate Library (UGLi) was located right next to the Grad, but offered a completely different atmosphere. Most students working in the UGLi were studying in groups, which led to a higher noise level. In contrast, the Law Library was a quiet library where individual studying was the norm. The library, which was ranked fourth out of 183 law school libraries in the nation by The National Jurist magazine, similarly featured beautiful architecture along with its lack of noise just as the Grad did. The library provided a worldwide collection of primary material and a research-level collection of secondary and research resources in print, microform, and computer formats. Students who spent most of their time on North Camus utilized the Duderstadt Center (previously known as the Media Union). The Center housed the Art, Architecture, and Engineering Library, but was a place for any student to get some studying done, as long as they were willing to trek to North Campus. The beautiful architecture of the Hatcher Graduate Library creates a serene study environment for students.The Graduate Library housed the University ' s primary research collection for the humanities and social sciences. J. Neff photo Students make their way through the glass entrance way of the Duderstadt Center on North Campus. With over 600,000 volumes, 200 databases, thousands of online journals, and a team of specialist librarians, the Center was fully equipt to handle the needs of all students. J. Neff photo O Q. C The lights of the Shapiro Undergraduate Library, known to students as the UGLi, shine through a cold winter night.The UGLi was named after Harold T.

That last semester when you had to finish all those requirements was the hardest, and trying to figure out where you wanted to be after was even harder. Students had to get on track in their first semester senior year, if not earlier, in order to meet all of the requirements for graduation. They had to declare their major and meet with an advisor in their respective fields to have them sign a concentration release form which was then sent to the University stating that the student was allowed to graduate. These advisors had a tight schedule and the students had to be very organized with all their material before they met with the advisors. In some cases, completing the senior audit did not even mean that you knew which requirements were filled. " I went to my advisor and they said I was all set, and then I went back to check on something else, and they said that my requirements weren ' t entirely fulfilled, " post-graduate and School of Public Health student Chris LaFond said. Siddharth Mehta, a senior electrical engineering major, was very stressed out during his final semester. " ! was so behind on all my organizing that I had to rush from one advisor to the other. Of course it all worked out in the end. It was so much fun once all the paperwork was done. Picking out the right graduation gowns and taking those senior pictures was so exciting. My parents came all the way from India for my graduation and it was such a delight, " Mehta said. A lot of people were also very nervous about their life after graduation. Senior computer science major Chiji Offor was nervous about the job market and his plans about graduate school. " I was applying to graduate school and at the same time looking for jobs. I was a little apprehensive about graduation and going through the whole process of re-applying to schools. But, all my nervousness vanished when I went to my last class and breathed a sigh of relief. It felt so good having achieved a degree from a wonderful University, " Offor said.

Helen Newberry, located on State Street, was one of four all-female residence halls on campus, as well as one of the closest halls to Central Campus. Tedjasuktnana photo HOUSING By Adrian Sanusi and April Wong or freshmen, receiving housing assignments in August was the first major step in becomming a college student. Meeting new people, eating in the dining hall, and having a reasonably priced laundry facility in the building were just some of the perks of living in a residence hall. However, with the increase in the demand of on-campus housing and the limited space, many students Although a new residence hall was planned for construction in 2006, there was no immediate solution. Many students chose to live off campus in houses or apartments, or in fraternity or sorority houses. The search for housing started early, within the first three months of school. Everyone wanted the " perfect place " to live: some people wanted to be close to a bus stop for their daily trip to North Campus, others wanted to be near South Campus for short walks to sporting events. And for most, as soon as they moved in to their new location, it was time to start the hunt for housing all over again. Ul Ln I found themselves living in converted lounges or family housing. c The courtyard of Alice Lloyd is located in front of the Hall on Observatory Street. Alice Lloyd was completed in 1949, in the midst of a labor and building materials shortage, at a cost of $2.9 million. S. Ludtke photo alice lloyd by Aparnaa Bhatt Nestled up on " the Hill " , Alice Lloyd Residence Hall was the home to approximately 560 undergraduate students. Run under the supervision of the Hall Director and Associate Hall Director, Alice Lloyd also employed a number of other individuals on their Resident Staff for the convenience of the students, including a Minority Peer Advisor, a Resident Computer Systems Consultant, an Academic Peer Advisor, and a Greek Affairs Advisor. Opportunities for participation in student government were also offered through the Minority Council of Alice Lloyd, more commonly known as MYSTIC (Minority Youth Striving to Incorporate Cohesiveness). " Now that I look back upon Lloyd, I miss it a lot! It was so warm and fuzzy and nice. Definitely homey! The food was decent most of the time. The dining hours were very short and they ran out of things. However, the snack bar was awesome! We could redeem meal plans for whatever we wanted, " junior electrical engineering and computer science major Kunjal Raheja said. The snack bar Raheja referred to was Alice ' s Place. Not only was the snack bar a great access for the residents, but many students also found that its flexible hours proved to be a good employment opportunity as well. Alice Lloyd was also home to the Lloyd Hall Scholars Program (LHSP), a program that offered first and second-year students an academic community where they could learn how to use the resources of a world-class university in an intimate environment. Meanwhile, the Health Science Scholars Program (HSSP) was offered for first-year students who were interested in pursuing the health sciences. The program provided its residents with an excellent academic experience set in a supportive and focused residential hall community. " There weren ' t many study lounges. There was a library that was decent, but the lounge used to get really noisy with the sorority girls. Actually, there were other rooms that you could study in during exam times... pretty large ones, too, " Raheja said. Not only was Alice Lloyd a great place to live, but it also granted students a great living learning community. 1st Angell lalice 1 1 oy d Liz Sauter.Alana Dyson, Lindsey Housman, Jessica Cloeshout, ?!

The process of moving out of a residence hall and into an off-campus house was steeped with questions and concerns. Most often, for the first time in their lives, students were faced with the burden of paying bills, balancing checkbooks and having to be generally in charge of their residence, without the aid or supervision of a parent or adult. Such an increase in responsibility was exciting yet daunting. Therefore, it was ideal (but unfortunately rare) to find a landlord that was truly sensitive to the student ' s vulnerable and immature position. A students off-campus living experience could hugely depend on his or her relationship with the landlord. Junior history of art major Max Holtz found his landlord, Ann Arbor Reality Co., to be by and large accommodating and fair. " They come when you need them to fix things. They have a five-day leeway when it comes to getting your rent in. They always clear the sidewalk and salt before anyone else in town. " As good as Max ' s situation sounded, he did disagree with the price of the late fee. If Max missed rent, even after the generous " five-day leeway, " he was asked to pay an additional forty dollars. " I ' ve probably lost a good $120 on that this year, " Holtz said. " I think it ' s stupid but it makes sense to have it - it ' s a painful reminder to pay your bills on time. " Understandably, landlords had to take certain precautions since they were dealing with young and often less reliable tenants. Firm contracts, large security deposits and $40 late fees such as Max ' s were logical but frustrating consequences of not living in residence halls. The University surely provided students with an academic education, however it was experiences such as off-campus housing that provided students with an education on the way the outside world works. 5th Palmer |alice lloyd) Dimitri Karatsinides, Jacob Rosenfeld.Ann Kelly, Scott Biales, Cari Kleinman, Chris McCrim, Nobel Chowdury, Michael Paul, Lauren Baitey, Michael Doyle, Rohimino Razafindramanana, Kurt Preston, Meredith Carr, Leslie Nemazi, Amanda Retzbach, Jamie Markus, Megan Taylor, Jonathan Montague |al ice I loyd | 6th Palmer Front Row: Randy Wills, Cara McBride, Lindsay Sklar, Katie Anderson, Emily Youra, Rebecca Hepner, Elizabeth O ' Brien, Charles Adside III, Kathryn Bucrek, Kathryn Evans, Rachel Hathaway Row 2:Todd Karazim.Alyssa Trotsky, David Liu.Jin Paik.Yuan Zhao, NissaVandre, Elmer Wang, William J.

Tedjasukmana photo The back of Vera Baits housing, located on North Campus, faces the School of Music. Baits was especially convenient for those who took classes at the School of Music, as the walk was less than five minutes. J. Neff photo vera baits by Aparnaa Bhatt Housing approximately 850 residents, Vera Baits was located on North Campus. There were two residential complexes known as Baits I and Baits II. The Resident Staff consists of: one Hall Director, one Associate Hall Director, 14 Resident Advisors, one Minority Peer Advisor, one Resident Computer Systems Consultant, one Resident Advisor for International Student Support and Programs, and one Academic Peer Advisor. Baits had several opportunities for participation in residents in student government. There were ten House Councils (one for each Baits House). Also, residents could participate in the Baits Multicultural Council. In addition Baits residents had various conveniences such as access to onsite parking and attached bathrooms in their bedrooms. Baits however, was not a meal serving hall, but a full kitchen existed in each House for the residents to use. Meals were included in the contract for Baits (excluding Conger and Thieme Houses) and students could eat in any meal serving hall. Bursley which was considered one of the best dorms when it came to meals was right around the corner from Baits. Thieme House, located within the Baits II complex, was home to the Max Kade German Residence Program. The Max Kade German Residence Program was sponsored by the D epartment of Germanic Languages and Literature and was a residence where undergraduates and graduates had the opportunity to learn and practice German in an informal setting. Vinayak Aggarwal lived in Baits his freshmen year and enjoyed it thoroughly. " Being an international student from India I was very worried living in Baits and being away from the rest of my friends who lived on Central campus. But the community was so friendly it was absolutely a wonderful experience. " Said Aggarwal, Junior Electrical Engineering major. All in all Baits was a wonderful dorm with a mix of cultures and undergraduate and graduate students. baits II 4th Eaton Front Row: Randi Fires.Andrew Bleeker, Jon Wilsey, Kristin I France Back Row: Lia Clarkson, Ollie Ganz.Alyce Hayes, Christina Jax Conger Cross |baits II Front Row:Awang Muhammand Zaid, Christine Aembruster, Danielle Kaber, Mindy Sedon.Anjala Crosby.Adzrul Hakim Adailami, Marcus Huff Row 2: ZihuaTan, EongTat Ooz.Ai Leen Fung, Kristen Gates, Muhammad Zaid Zainuddin, Louie Lucero, Michael Kobbe, Carone Lowrey, Marissa White Row 3: Karina Akopyan.Andy Dougovito, Heen Choong Leong, Leana Hicks, Jennifer Hartley, Jamie Polan, Andrew Folen, Putt Kah Wai, Josh Olkowski.ZhiWei Sim, Chun KeatYeoh Back Row: Rohan Parambi, Chase Waterman.Albert Bak.Jack Stewart.Alexandria Mathieu, Andrew Geye.

Barbour. Y. Granata photo betsy barbour i by El by Elizabeth Brooks At first glance, the Betsy Barbour residence hall, nestled on State Street on Central Campus, appeared a quiet, almost isolated area. Encircled by trees and set back from the hustle and bustle of one of the University ' s busiest streets, it was barely visible from the street and did not boast the constant traffic of hundreds of students coming and going. Upon closer inspection, however, one may witness the vivacity and energy of Be tsy Barbour, as well as a plethora of opportunities and activities offered to the hall ' s residents. The residence hall, which housed 120 women, most of whom were first-year students, was one of the University ' s oldest and smallest residence halls, and one of only three all-female buildings on campus. Betsy Barbour was built in 1920 and cost nearly $220,000 to construct. Former University Regent Levi L. Barbour gave the building to the University as a gift in memory of his mother. After one of his sponsored students from China died from tuberculosis, a disease which she contracted because of inadequate living conditions in the University residence halls, he decided to donate the hall in an attempt to better the living situations for students. The building has always been an all-female living community. In order to build a sense of community among residents, the Barbour Hall Council planned various social events and field trips, most of which included residents of Helen Newberry House, located next door. " We had a Halloween party with a costume contest, a field trip to Somerset mall in Troy, and a karaoke dance contest where the winner received a cash prize " senior Jeanette Bixby said. Bixby, who lived in Barbour for a year and worked in the cafeteria, liked living in Barbour because " it ' s quiet, clean, and you get to know a lot of people. " With regards to the single-sex environment, she saw the all-female living situation as an asset. " It ' s really nice not having guys in the building all the time. We can have them in our rooms and escort them around, but it ' s nice not to have random people wandering around, " she said. Although Betsy Barbour shared a dining hall with Newberry residents and must go to the neighboring hall for computing needs and to use the exercise facilities, residents agreed that the location on campus far outweighs the small negatives. " This is a perfect location on Central Campus, and the living conditions are great, " first-year engineering student Hui Li said. " Our room size is very large, and we don ' t have community bathrooms.

Located on North Campus, Bursley was the most recently constructed dormitory and also the largest in campus housing with 1277 residents. J. Neff photo bursley by Shelby Ludtke After three possible floor pl ans were thrown out the window, first-year student Paul Haapaniemi and his roommate agreed to loft their extra-long ' twin beds. Standing over six-feet tall, he could not help feeling cramped in his new surround- ings. " It freaked me out a bit when we first opened the door to our room. I knew it wouldn ' t be extravagant, but I never imagined how small 11 by 12 really is. Not to mention there are pipes running through the ceiling that I always hit my head on in the middle of the night, " Haapeniemi said. When the two were finally satisfied with their furniture arrangement an hour later, the Farmington-Michigan native headed to the cafeteria to check out the food. " I ' ve been told a lot of horror stories about college dorm food, and I have to say, the food is really not that bad. Then I saw the dessert line, even a frozen yogurt machine! That ' s just awesome, " Haapeniemi said. Named after Mary Butler Markley, the residence hall opened its doors in 1959 - for females only. By 1964, the hall, along with other buildings on the hill, went co-educational. This year, over 1,800 students, a majority of whom were first-year students, called Mary Markley home. Catching the bus on East Medical Drive, Haapaniemi lamented the ongoing construction outside his front door. Despite the annoyance, there were renovations to Markley itself that benefited residents, including the new Community Learning Center, which replaced the old library. New technology filled the study space and gave students room to work with- out having to trek to the Shapiro undergraduate library. The site was all-inclusive, allowing students to get help from various parking problem by Shelby Ludtke Meters. Coins. Parking Tickets. Parking Garages. Parking Permits. The list was endless: students with cars could rattle off ten more daily concerns. Ann Arbor, home to both students and local residents, was certainly not an easy place to find parking. Students found themselves worried sick over things like street parking, fender-benders, and ridiculously over-priced tickets. Whoever said having a car was liberating certaintly never attempted to find parking in Ann Arbor on a football Saturday, or most other days for that matter. For most students, the biggest fear about having a car on campus was the ever-risky street parking. If one was lucky - or patient enough - to find a parking spot on the street, the task then became determining whether one was legally parked. Tickets were issued for obvious infractions, such as blocking a driveway, sidewalk, or fire hydrant, but also for more obscure reasons. Signs that read " 15 Minute Loading Zone, Sam - 6pm " were misleading, and students found themselves paying tickets, towing fees, and the like. Junior architecture major Karin Neubauer often found it impossible to find parking near her sorority. As she was not a senior member of the house, she was not eligible for a parking pass, and was therefore left to fend for herself, resulting in a horrific towi ng incident. " I parked in a spot that was allegedly a 15-Minute zone, but it was not clearly marked. I received two tickets for $25 each, the city charged me $56 to get the release form for my car, and then the private towing company, who had me trekking through Ypsilanti to get my car back, also charged me $140. Certainly not money I was prepared to pay!, " she said. Whether or not Neubauer was in the wrong, she felt it was an issue that both the city and the school should strive to resolve. " No one seems to care about providing adequate parking, and I think that is the real problem. Don ' t they understand it is a daily struggle for all residents, permanent and temporary? " Other concerns included the traffic and pedestrians ' For one thing, none of the drivers in this town really pay attention to what is going on. People are always speeding around trying to get somewhere and no one really notices when the lights change. I ' ve already been rear-ended this year, and it was certainly the result of carelessness, " junior history major Aaron Nord said. Considering the amount of students who jog, run, bicycle or roller-blade, pedestrian safety was at the top of the list. " I was hit by a car while running to the IM Building! It was scary, but fortunately I was only side-swiped. The guy didn ' t even stop, he just kind of quickly checked to see that I was moving and then sped off, " said junior LSA student Casey Haapaniemi. The year ' s best development?

Proax photo 3 " 1 couzens ha by Shelby Ludtke Dozing off after a late-night study session, senior political science and English major Lindsay Bozicevich curled up in her warm, cozy Couzens bed. As the clock struck 4 am, Bozicevich was startled and awakened by the honking of a fire alarm, pulled as a prank by two fraternity brothers fulfilling their hazing duties. Bozicevich, who lived in Couzens for the duration of her college career, was a two- time Resident Advisor in charge of over 50 females. Pounding on each of their doors because she was uncertain whether there was a real fire, she woke all of her residents and escorted them outside. Couzens Hall, originally built in 1926 for female nursing students, sat prominently on East Ann Street, overlooking Palmer Field and the Medical Campus. The now co-educational hall housed 579 students, the Couzens Active Multi Ethnic Organization (C.A.M.E.O.), and the Michigan Community Scholars Program (MCSP). It was also the victim of an inordinate amount of fire drills this year, only one of which occurred because of an actual fire. " It ' s almost impossible to know when things are genuine because they occur so often, but we did have an actual fire on October 5th. Apparently a trashcan caught fire somewhere up on the sixth floor. Since we ' ve had so many drills this year and an actual ' fire ' , my residents and I were thinking of getting shirts made that say ' Couzens: the Roof is Always on Fire. ' No one was injured and there was no damage to the building, so the fire drills were really just a colorful addition to the fall, " Bozicevich said. Bozicevich, who was involved in Couzens life on multiple levels, chose to make the residents hall her home because of her posi- tion as an MCSP leader. She facilitated discussions for groups of 12 to 18 students. The living learning community ' s goal was to combine social justice issues, community service, and academic excellence. As a facilitator, Bozicevich and her students discussed issues ranging from cultural diversity, transitioning to college, and their personal values. " I really enjoy having the opportunity to help incoming students with difficult issues and problems that arise when they first get to school. I get to see a new dimension of my residents and it helps to form a strong bond, " Bozicevich said. Bozicevich was also a Hall Head for K-grams and coordinated letter exchanges and projects between her residents and Holmes Elementary School in Willow Run. " Being a Hall Head and living in the hall at the same time is fantastic. I ' m surrounded by people who are extremely enthusiastic about the program, and we feed off one another. It ' s really amazing, " she said.

During the war, the residence hall was used to train soldiers in Japanese language and weather observation. J. Neff photo Located between three main roads on campus. East University Avenue, Hill Street, and Church Street, East Quadrangle boasts its beauty. The residence hall was home to 900 students who enjoyed the building ' s convenient location. J. Neff photo east quadrangle by Matthew Dunne East Quadrangle was built over eight years in two separate phases. In 1941, the first phase (the North wing) was completed at a cost of $1.2 million dollars. Seven years later, costing $2.3 million, phase two (the South Wing) was finished. East Quad has nearly 900 residents divided between eight houses. As part of the Works Progress Administration ( WPA), East Quad was originally constructed as an all-male dormitory housing members of the Army Air Force, the Military Intelligence Department, and Army Engineers. Shortly after the war ended, East Quad was converted to a co-ed dorm. Home to the Residential College, East Quad can almost be considered a University in itself. However, many students chose to study within the Residential College as a more intimate, less intimidating experience at the University. The Residential College, with nearly 150 classes annually and 22 classrooms, was a degree-granting subset of LS A. " It ' s cool having your classes in the same building where you live, it ' s very convenient, " junior African American and women ' s studies major Carla Thomas said. " ! think East Quad has the reputation of being a hippie dorm, but a lot of generalizations are inaccurate, there are a lot of different kinds of people who live here, " she added. East Quad had an abundance of opportunities for participation in student government-like activities. Two of these ways were by joining the East Quad Representative Assembly or Abeng, the hall ' s multicultural council. East Quad housed a Hall Director, two Associate Hall Directors, 22 Resident Advisors, a Minority Peer Advisor, a Minority Peer Advisor Assistant (MPAA), a Resident Computer Systems Consultant, and a Academic Peer Advisor. " The people who work here are really nice. I ' m the MPAA this year, and I ' m going to live here as the MPA. I ' m really looking forward to it, " Thomas said. Thomas will have lived in the dorm for her entire college career by the time she graduated. |east quadrangle) 3rd Hinsdale Front Row: Samuel Tai Row 2: Elizabeth Bovair, Rebecca Hunemorder.James Defebaugh, Evan Martin, Daniel Nguyen- Phuoc, Greg Kovas Back Row: Andrew Chadsey.Talia Selitsky.Amanda Havlatka, Amanda Dewyer, Jennifer Blight, Matt Sinclair, Michael Ohlrosse east quadrangle 2nd Prescott Front Row: Michael LaMarra, Rachael Soglin.Adam Fivenson, Benjamin Crotte, Ronald Leuterio Row 2: Jonathon Zilber, Neptune Amarillo, Tom Hartsig, Matthew Kessler, Nate Cunningham, Elliot Edwards Back Row: Malika Middlebrooks, Jason Bates, Jane Braun, Everett Kramer, Ian Krieg, William Hart, Michelle Terwilliger.Amanda Davidson, Amy Geer 1 east quadrangle 2nd Strauss Front Row: Miriam Liebman, Katie Rosen, Susan Han Row 2: Hannah Smith, Stephanie Becker, Julia Hoppe.Carla Thomas, Megan Murphy.

Fletcher was located on South Campus across from the IM Building, offering its residents a short walk to Michigan Stadium, but longer walks to Central Campus than most other residence halls. Tedjasukmatia photo i " " T I null in " ' mil LETCHER HALL fletcher By Robert Fowler Located just south of Central Campus on Sybil Street right across from the Intramural Sports Building, the Fletcher dormitory provided housing for only about 70 students. Although Fletcher was by far the smallest dorm at the University, it boasted several distinguishing advantages. The low number of students allowed for the formation of a friendlier, community-oriented environment amongst its residents. Still other advantages existed. First-year undecided student Dan Nye said, " I like it because it has big rooms and we can usually play our music as loud and as late as we want. " Most of the rooms were converted triples with sinks and ample closet space. Fletcher also had a computer lab, communal kitchen, and plenty of space for meetings. Regardless, the dorm was not without disadvantages. The glaring absence of a dining hall forced residents to walk to nearby West and South Quad in order to utilize their meal plans. The dorm ' s location was enjoyed by some, but disliked by others. " Fletcher is right in the middle of the ' student ghetto, " Nye said. Also, Fletcher is 70 percent male and only 30 percent female and was divided into same-sex hallways. In spite of these disadvantages, many students would still chose to live there again. " ! would definitely live there again. It ' s better than North Campus, " Nye said. Fletcher was purchased by the University after the previous owners, a group of alumni known as the Dormitories Corporation, were unable to afford its ownership. Additionally, beginning in 1933, the University had made several renovations to the building ' s interior.

Leonard photo marv markley by Shelby Ludtke After three possible floor plans were thrown out the window, first-year student Paul Haapaniemi and his roommate agreed to loft their extra-long ' twin beds. Standing over six-feet tall, he could not help feeling cramped in his new surroundings. " It freaked me out a bit when we first opened the door to our room. I knew it wouldn ' t be extravagant, but I never imagined how small 11x12 really is. Not to mention there are pipes running through the ceiling that I always hit my head on in the middle of the night, " Haapeniemi said. Named after Mary Butler Markley, the residence hall ope ned its doors in 1959 - for females only. By 1964, the hall, along with other buildings on the hill, went co-educational. This year, over 1,800 students, a majority of whom were first-year students, called Mary Markley home. Catching the bus on East Medical Drive, Haapaniemi lamented the ongoing construction outside his front door. Despite the annoyance, there were renovations to Markley itself that benefited residents, including the new Community Learning Center, which replaced the old library. New technology filled the study space and gave students room to work without having to trek to the Shapiro Undergraduate Library. The site was all-inclusive, allowing students to get help from various tutors, including peers from both the Sweetland Writing Center and the School of Engineering. Markley also underwent extensive re-wiring and infrastructure improvements before students returned in September for the academic year. Markley was also chosen to host the National Residence Hall Honorary and Residence Halls Association Leadership Retreat on Saturday, October 2nd, 2004. The retreat included all the executive boards of all the hall and multicultural councils on campus, with more than 200 representatives in attendance. Snow covers the lawn on the east side of Martha Cook Residence Hall, located on South University Avenue. An exclusively all-female residence hall. Martha Cook was the only University housing facility to offer sit-down meal service. J. Neff photo martha cook by Shelby Ludtke William Cook wanted to do something to honor his mother, Martha Walford Cook; so in 1911, he began donating funds, which prompted construction of an all women ' s dormitory on the University ' s campus. Cook made sure, however, that the University was well aware of the stipulations of his donation-the building had to be a college home, and any income generated by the building had to be reinvested in the building. Located on South University and Tappan, Martha Cook dormitory was initially constructed to house 140 women. Like most other dormitories, Cook had a cafeteria and study areas, but it was Cook ' s unique offerings that many residents appreciated. In addition to a sit-down meal service, Cook held weekly teas on Friday. Both unique options were available to all students, and the teas even were available to the public. " Martha Cook offers a really beautiful environment. It even has a 1913 Steinway piano which was recently restored, " director of the Martha Cook Building Marion Scher said. " Women here are able to enjoy a tradition of events [like the Friday teas] that build a sense of community. " " [Martha Cook] is very small and cozy. It ' s home-like, " junior political science and communications major and Martha Cook multicultural peer advisor Alexis Olive said. " The girls are very diverse; we have international students, art school students, business school students-there is always someone to talk to. We all chose to live here and we have common interests and our love for the building only brings us together more. " The exterior of the building was constructed of all red brick and limestone, which created a Tudor Gothic and early Renaissance style appearance. Various statues and architectural details adorned the building such as cut stone trimmings, rows of gargoyles, and a statue of Portia. To the east of the building lay a fenced-in garden complete with charming landscaping and sitting places. Residents also had access to a tennis court. ! 5th Scott |mary markley| Front Row: Zach Weingarden.Trent Allen, James Johnson, Captain Eric Selke.Jeffery Bondalapati, Derek Rizzo, Derek Vigon, Pat Senatore Row 2: Kevin Churchill, Michael Angelo, Rob Kaitz, Adam Wallace, Dave lnkellis, " Rog " Schanski, Greg Prislipsky, Matt Raubinger, Harris Brand Row 3: Adam Steen- wyk, Nick Pelachyk, Harish Kinni,Vinny " Poo McGoo " Mckeon, Chris Corteg.Andrew Krebsbach, Paul Kang, Mike Lohr, Anthony " Flip " Defilippo, Stefan Kalmbach, Nate Prill Back Row: Karl Schoen, Chris Doughty, Dave Randazzo, Dan Centar II.Amish Kuvadia, Eric Johnson, Josh Saltzman, Kevin Cohen |martha cook| freshmen Heidi Ziegenmeyer, KatherineWong.Wenjia Chen.Thea Bude, Jennifer Weaver, Laura van Hyfte, Megan Williams, Kristin Mantila April Smith, Genevieve Gunow, Sarah Guillou, Patricia Chang, Marguerite Bodem.Tracey Bachelder, Katie Crosby, Kristin Mathews.Val Heiser, Derren Kales, Lauren LaCross, Shelley Greene, Diana Elliott, Amy Tay, Sarah Daniel, Tara Whipkey.Anna Davis, Jennifer Cisler.Alaina Zombeck.Ashleigh Henton, Jennie Pilnik, Cara Hickman, Nicole DiPaolo, Sheila Klein, Lindsey Ungar.Amanda Nichols, Marci Mitchell, Katie Gorman, Erin Thomas, Laura Kempa, Shelley Catalan, Amy Kolodzy sophomores |martha cookj Endrina Halili, Nikki Russell, Lindsay Kariniemi, Emily French, Kaitlyn Cheeseboro, Elizabeth Crider, Kristin Dcamp, Stephanie Mansour, Lisa Lentz, Stephanie Patterson, Eakta Khangura, Stacy Guerrero, Jodie Woznica, Jessica Hendrickson, Jessica Roche, Laurie Sagherian, Nimmy George, Allison Glenn, Joanna Lin, Jordan Kridler, Christina Talamonti, Katelyn Sigworth martha cook| juniors Nandini Singh, Tekla Bude, Erin Russell, Londisa Halili, Marta Galecki, Andrea Holowecky, Keri Myers, Jessica Hambey.Tiffani Boss, Chrissy Hayes, Bonnie Grow, Sarah Maynard, Karen Barr, Kendal Harlan, Kimberly Essenberg seniors Imartha cook| (O z W i I Kaylan Brakora, Mami Jones, Emily Moran, Erin Whipkey, Sunny Kim, Amanda Elliot,Amy Liao, Carolyn Senger.Alice Shukla, Krysta Bartnik Cars drive down Observatory Street past Mosher Jordan residence hall on a winter night.

Neff photo II i mosher Jordan by Aparnaa Bbatt Mosher-Jordan, which was located on the Hill, consisted of approximately 500 residents, 68% first-year students and 32% upper-classmen. Participants from two unique cmapus programs were housed within the building: the Women in Science and Engineering Residence Program ( WISE-RP) and UROP in Residence (UIR). WISE-RP was offered to those women who intended to pursue studies in science, mathematics, or engineering. Participants benefited from the camaraderie, mentorship and support of women living together in a non-competitive but academically intense environment. UIR offered 130 first and second-year students all the benefits of the UROP non-residential program as well as the chance to live together on the third floor of the dorm with a small, diverse community of students who shared an interest in research. UIR students were exposed to the diversity of research taking place on campus and beyond by enrolling in an interdisciplinary course, Introduction to Research. " I had never lived on the Hill before until this year. I loved Mojo. Yeah, it was far, but the staff and residents were really cool. I got really close with the other RAs (resident advisors) and we were not just co-workers, but really good friends too! They made me feel at home, and now I can ' t imagine not living in Mojo! " junior business major Madhuri Singh said. Singh was also a minority peer advisor (MPA). " I think the work that I did, as an MPA was so worthwhile. I had been able to impact a lot of students through my work as a minority peer advisor, and I also co-programmed with other staff members, like the academic peer advisor (APA) to reach out to even more students. We had selected our executive board and they did great things this year, like plan a debate between the College Democrats and Republicans on why voting and politics affected racial minorities, women, and the LGBT community.

' Old helen newberry by Elizabeth Brooks In 1913, University alum Helen Newberry ' s family was faced with an arduous decision - where they should donate money in their mothers memory. They finally decided on UM where $75,000 was donated for the building of a new residence hall. Located at 432 S. State Street, Helen Newberry was one of four all-female residence halls on campus today. The other three, Betsy Barbour, Stockwell, and Martha Cook, were all constructed following Newberry ' s construction in 1915. When the building on the residence hall started, the land was owned by Student Christian Association, but was purchased by the University in 1925. Combined with Barbor, there were 240 total female residents in the complex. Constructed entirely out of brick, Newberry had four floors and a basement in addition to a sunporch. Residents also had access to an exercise and dance room and kitchenettes. There was no dining hall or front desk, but the women only needed to walk next door to Betsy Barbour where they could find both amenities. Many residents preferred the living situation in Newberry because of the quiet, charming atmosphere it had. Freshman LSA student Lauren Lopez said, " It is a little less rowdy than other dorms, it ' s quiet and nice. " This different environment made for other perks as well. Freshman nursing student Sarah Clevenger said, " It [Newberry ' s atmosphere] makes a better study environment. Freshman LSA student Allison Lewis said, " Newberry is small. It is easy to get to know people better and everyone here is fun. I like living here.

South Quadrangle was locat across the street from West Quadrang and residents often enjoyed the clo proximity to friends and dining hal J.NeJTPbc south quadrangle by Robert Fowler Playing host to a broad range of students, resources, and activities, South Quadrangle was one of the largest dorms on ca mpus. It opened in 1952 and was considered state of the art at the time. It even won an award from the Michigan Society of Architects. Housing 1220 students, South Quad was one of the largest residential halls on campus and cost $5.6 million to build. At its opening, the dorm was all-male. A few years after its construction, the dorm became co-ed: half of the female residents of the Mary Markley residential hall moved to South Quad and half of the male residents of South Quad moved to Markley. It was coed with 70 percent of the dorm coed by floor; 30 percent, by room. Both before and after the switch, though, many unique activities in the dorm kept students busy, which set this dorm apart from all the others. South Quad housed the LSA Honors program, as well as the student-run cable station Michigan Cable Network. Other resources included an advanced information resource center, study rooms, a darkroom, and an advanced fitness training center. Like other dorms, South Quad also had the typical dorm organizations like the South Quad Council and the Cafe ConXion snack bar. The hall even had an organization for multicultural residents called Ambatana. Other aspects of the dorm, though, made South Quad especially attractive to University students. " The location is the best. It ' s so close to class and lots of places to eat, " sophomore LSA student Caitlin Gerds said. Gerds also didn ' t mind the food: " I think [the food] is good. It ' s definitely better than Bursley. " Still others saw additional benefits. Right away, sophomore pre-business student Jessica Constable said that her favorite part of South Quad was the larger rooms with sinks. Constable, however, did not view the food quite as favorably: " ! think some of the food is not that bad, but the selection is not as good as Markley and I really don ' t like dorm food. " Constable did agree that the dorm ' s location was by far the best on campus. Most students at South Quad were honors students, athletes, or upper-classman. " It ' s really hard to get in here unless you are an athlete or honors student. You ' re pretty lucky if you ' re a freshman living here, " Constable said. To add to the competitive housing market at South Quad, Constable also noted that many people moved in with people they already knew. Besides losing the new electronic door keys frequently, there appeared to be no negative side to residing in South Quad. |south quadrangle] 4th Hunt Girls Front Row: Emily Vogel, Pamela Leskar, Jennifer Black, Sarah Thiel, Erin Schlemmer, Callie Finzel Row 2: Alina larve, Callie Wang, Kendra Yum, Rebecca Scares, Katie Slivensky, Melinda Kleczynski, Meg Hixon Row 3: Christina Li, Sheila Merchant, Emily Schroeder, Kayla Arsianian.Anna Han, Susan Morgan, Smrithi Srinivasan, Katie Parzych, Jennifer Lunger Row 4: Christine Beamer.Juhi Aggarwal, Michelle Burroughs, Carly VanDort, Marie van Staveren, Julie Ryckman, Mimi Xi, Carly Manz :h Hunt Guys (south quadrangle) Front Row: Brian Baisa, Richard Turner, Benjamin Gray, Rajeev Vijay, Joseph Kim, Patrick Wu Row 2: Nicholas Reder, Benn Wolfe, Alexander Ly, Brandon Vachirasudlekha, PeteTroyan, Ruo Chen Lzn, Fan Zhang, Paul Baciv Back Row: Andrius Giedraitis, Gary Weinraub, Carlin Danz, Cody Forsberg, Charles Hayward, Henry Lu, Jonah Zaretsky, William Gary, Ben Friedman sra Front Row: Kathleen O ' Connell.Amanda Strugats, Corey Solow, Ryann Engeljessical Seto, Danielle Baer, Sarah Krainen Back Row: Olubunmi Fawumi, Molly Rea.Yulanda Curtis, Catherine Maestro, Stephanie Canning SJ 2-0 Side |stockwell| Front Row: Jill Branam, Jackie Fu, Diane Raffin, Krishna Chalasani, Shana Holden Back Row: Marya Corden, Bethany Wolf, Stefanie Wiener, Cara Jordan.Veronica Johnson, Kristina Liu G 5 Q. 3 .

First-year LSA student Abbie LaRock said, " The Ann Arbor real estate is such that you have to begin looking close to nine months before you plan on moving in, so that you can get an adequate housing. " Many students began looking in October, and even then some were surprised to find many houses and apartments were already occupied for the following year. First-year LSA student Carrie Kraeger said, We started looking around September and while that was probably early enough, a lot of houses we wanted were already being rented again from the previous year, so we didn ' t actually get the house we really wanted. " Although the demand for housing was very high during the fall semester, each student looked for housing that best suited their needs. Kreager said about the most popular places to live, " I think some for the top places to live vary in terms of what everyone is looking for. If you ' re an athlete, you probably want to be close to the facilities and campus, but if you ' re a Greek then you probably want to be fairly close to your chapter house. Furthermore, if you ' re a theater, architecture, music, engineering or art major, you probably want to be close to North Campus. " While most students chose to live off campus, there were a select few who chose to live in the dorms for another year. The hunt for a dorm room varied greatly than that of a housing or apartment hunt. Junior Spanish major Anna Munoa lived in Alice Lloyd her freshmen year and West Quadrangle her junior. Munoa said, " When I moved to a dorm I had not previously lived in, I started looking at rooms about a month before we signed up, and by a week or so before, I knew of a couple of rooms that I was interested in. " Munoa added that there were definitely dorms in " high demand. " For example, Alice Lloyd was often sought after for its large rooms and South and West Quads were valued for their close proximity to central campus. Munoa said, " While it seemed very stressful at the time, I now realize that it didn ' t really matter where I lived as long as I got to choose my roommate! " A management sign posted on one of the properties of Carlson Properties advertises the company on the corner of Arbor and State Streets. Postings such as these were not uncommon and were a helpful way for students to begin their housing hunt in early fall. J. Neff photo An apartment complex at 815 South State Street offers two bedroom apartments to students. Students who chose apartments over houses generally have the benefit of utilities included in their rent. L. Prottx photo O Situated on the corner of the Hill, the street lamps surrounding Stockwell Residence Hall illuminate the night. Stockwell was the only all-female hall on the Hill and housed 418 students. J. Neff photo stockwe by Katrina Deutsch Named after the first female admitted to the University, Madelon Louise Stockwell, Stockwell Residence Hall was the first residence hall seen on the Hill after crossing the pedestrian bridge. Housing 418 predominantly first-year and sophomore students, the building ' s old, comfortable architecture allowed residents to feel like they were home every time they entered the building. As most sophomore residents chose to live in Stockwell for its quiet atmosphere and the abundance of single rooms available, first-year students had mixed emotions about being put in an all-female residence hall for their first year of college. However, as some students found out, living in an all-female residence hall had the perks of allowing true friendships to grow. " Stockwell gave me a dorm experience, but not necessarily the open door social extraveganza that seems to be at other dorms, " sophomore organizational studies major Katie Benedetto said. Benedetto, refering to the larger residence halls that housed predominantly first-year students, such as Markley and Bursley, noted that the all-female aspect of Stockwell, along with the abundance of single rooms, contributed to this feeling. " ! was lucky that I liked the people on my floor a lot, " Benedetto added. The interior of Stockwell mirrored the all-female atmosphere of the building. The dining hall, which was used by many residents of neighboring Mosher-Jordan Residence Hall as well, featured a nicer dining room than other halls, with wooden tables and chairs that were uncharacteristic of most other buildings on the Hill. The Blue Lounge, located off of the main entrance to the building, was the largest lounge in Stockwell, and featured two fireplaces, along with dozens of comfortable couches and chairs for students to meet with groups or study independently. Stockwell was planned to be closed starting in the 2005-2006 school year for renovations, which not only took the opportunity away from prospective students to live in the building, but also created a need of additional housing for those students. stockwell | 3-0 Side Front Row: Bethany Thelen, Ursula Lopez, Sarah Kaufman, Elissa Rosen, Randall Klein, Sarah Roffman Row 2: Marie Bryant, Sowmya Sitaram, Sana Javed, Jessy Shen, Carrie Graeff, Claire Barco, Kate Hensel.Anna Kindt Row 3: Stephanie Royer, Irene Wu, Amanda Kandt, Eileen Mulloy, Melissa de Carvalho.Vera Baranov.Audrey Huzenis, Lauren Deverna Row 4: Yaning Zhang, Christina Saindon, Kelli McCarrell, Sarah Pelc, Preeti Samudra, Phoebe Man Lok Lai, Neena Sharma Back Row: Andrea Sofian.Jacquelyn Godin.Ashley Kandt, Karlin Welyana Albindo | stockwel 1 1 3-5 Side Front Row: Susan Y.Jung, Jennifer Jenkins, RachaelJ.

West Quad was originally built to provide room and board for male students, as well as to serve as an environment supportive of personal, social, and academic growth. L. Worcester photo west quadran by Matthew Dunne West Quadrangle was one of the oldest and most unique dorms on campus. Providing housing for over sixty years, it was home to a large portion of the current and past University community. In 1939, West Quadrangle was built at a cost of a mere $1.8 million. Today West Quad consisted of nine different houses: Adams, Rumsey, Chicago, Lloyd, Michigan, Wenley, Williams, Winchell and Cambridge. However, the first house to be completed was Allen-Rumsey House, named after the co-founders of Ann Arbor. Shortly upon the completion of Rumsey house, the University Regents built the rest of West Quad. Cambridge House, a special living community within West Quad, was different in that it was originally the Michigan Union Hotel, converted into University housing in 1979. Cambridge House generally housed upper-class and graduate students, but this year some freshmen were placed there due to the overwhelming demand for housing by incoming students. West Quad was one of two all- male dormitories on campus but became co-ed in 1969. However, only Williams House was co-ed by room, unlike many of the other campus dormitories. All of the remaining houses were co-ed by hall. Structurally West Quad was unique from the other University dorms as it was designed to be completely fireproof. In doing so, the only connection between each of the nine houses was located on the ground level, which often made getting around through West Quad quite a confusing and lengthy process. However, with two courtyards, residents were able to directly enter each house without the hassle of having to walk through the maze-like interior. Unlike most of the other dorms on campus, the majority of West Quad residents were not incoming freshman. Only 45-percent of students living in West Quad were actually freshman. The remaining 55-percent of the occupants were mainly sophomores, but included upper-class students as well. |west quadrangle] Court We n I ey M i c h igan Front Row: Nick Wilson, Kyle Chase, Ben Kirk, Matt Salem, Ken Domke Row 2: Ajay Jain, Spencer Nyman, Philip Cullen, Chris Ruswick Back Row: Shyam Shah, Andrew Grabowski, Brad Matteson.Vasav Gopal Swaminathan, Omar Maktabi, Andrew Larson, Robert Lawrance, Brad Casai, David Painter Court We n I ey west quadrangle Front Row: Bradley Dobbie, Douglas Dutch Row 2: Mario Signer, Erwin Burns, Scott Smith, Ross Johnson, Kartik Kamaria, Zach Shell, Sam Mainthia, LuayAlmassalha, Ryan Carmichael, David Lee, Wilson Zhao Back Row: Phil Drazewski, Brian Hollis, Jacob Nathan, Jared Peniado, Fletcher McCombie, Andrew Chadderdon, Eric Mitchell, Anthony Blake. |west quadrangle] 4th Wenley Front Row: Amanda Cross, Whitnee Dillard, Stephanie Compere, Bing Li, Esther Oh, Grace Im Row 2: Colleen Chute, Amanda Szabo, Jennifer Bischoff, Stephanie Dowerah, Farida Migally, Marlene Gray, Jennifer Sutter.Tara Keller Back Row: Gretchen Oleson, Jamie Fortier, Cathlin Olszewski, Meghan Watt, Amanda Weibel, Miranda Olds, Danielle Hawkins, Natalie Render west quadrangle Front Row: Jackie Garry, Rachel Black.Adele Coelho, Natalie Wowk.Anna-Leena af Ursin Monza, Kirsten Benjamin, Rachel Herrmann Row 2: Emily Rollet.Jeff Katz.Tony Frankini, Meghan Murnahan, Seth Wolkoff, Ben Beatty, Nicholas Andrew Row 3: Garret Collins, Mark Shevin, Melissa Cole, Derek Raisanen, Leif Knag, Bret Seamon.Yat Chiu Yeung, Mitch Voss, Meng Zhong.Josh Shope, Chris Lane Back Row: Jeremy VanBuskirk, Andrew Bush, Matthew Arnold, Dawson Moore A resident ofWest Quadrangle takes advantage of the quiet atmosphere in the lounge off of the main entrance of the residence hall.

Community service organizations, such as the Detroit Project, Relay for Life, ind DaR Marathon, were some of the largest and most well- publicized on campus, and held one large event each year. The University Activities Center (UAC), the University ' s student- run programming organization, funded groups that provided entertainment for students, such as the musical theater group MUSKET and the a cappella group Amazin ' Blue. Publications, such as The Michigan Daily and the Gargoyle humor magazine gave students an opportunity to learn about journalism and the publishing world, while also allowing them to leave their mark at the University. Academic and multicultural organizations also gave students the opportunity to expand their interests and backgrounds with other students, allowing themselves to grow while educating others.

Phot courtesy Anita Leung michigan student assembly F ' . II The Michigan Student Assembly, MSA, served as the central student government on campus to bridge this gap over the school year. MSA strived to implement change that would improve campus life for the entire student body by serving as the official student voice to the administration. Some of the more notable events and services MSA brought to campus were a visit by Michael Moore and a Battle of the Bands on Palmer Field. In addition to five executive officers, MSA was comprised of approximately 40 elected representatives. The number of representatives elected from each college was proportional to the size of the college. Junior computer science engineering major Khoi Nguyen said, " Running for MSA is by far the most tiring, most exhausting, and most time consuming activity I have done. But by the election day, you realize that [running] is by far the most thrilling experience you have ever had. " Students on campus had the opportunity to contribute to MSA through five committees and 14 commissions. Junior economics major Rese Fox said, " committees and commissions are a great way to participate in student government without actually being a representative or campaigning. " The Academic Affairs Commissions worked with the administration to change the policies regarding exam conflicts with religious holidays, the Voice Your Vote Commission registered over 10,000 students to vote through several different efforts prior to the election, and the Campus Safety Commission worked to improve lighting on campus. MSA also collaborated with student groups on campus through community service and funding. All student organizations were required to register with MSA prior to applying for and receiving funding. The Budget Priorities Committee distributed $200,000 to the different organizations on campus and the Community Service Commission distributed over $100,000 in funding to community service-based organizations. ro vO cf5 ' a D It n by : arti mattu Front Row: Sam Weihman, Brain Schwadron, Aaron Dodd, Royce Ebenal, Will Faulkner, Andrew Finn, Max Mikulec, Brett Barna, Benjamin Crotte.Adam Kelsey, David Koren Row 2: Arin Aragona, Matt Kuriluk, Ben Becker, Dan Kuriluk, Peter Emiley, Mike Eller, Karl Seibertjosh Rubin, Kyle Geralds, Ted Pixley.Tim Farrow.Jacob Castiglione Back Row: MattTrenary, Kevin Mulligan, Darryl Ford, Steve Smolinski, Matt Resales, Nick Warack, Matt Russell, Nick Stadts, Nate Schafrick, Sultan Sharrieff, Kevin Vanderjack, Scott McClelland, John Morgan, Luke Meinzen, Evan Currie, Aaron Turk, Mike Rakiter, Nick Dyrda, Kyle Geis, Pat Davis, Nick Harris, Wes Farrow K.

The season included a 7-0 record in regular season games and then four playoffs wins. With these playoff wins, the team earned the Midwest Championship. Senior psychology and economics major and team captain Wesley Farrow said, " We dominated teams throughout the regular season. Even in the playoff, the closest game was the 15-3 margin against Bowling Green State University in the Midwest finals. " While the team did not begin competing until late in the winter semester, the training for the season began long before then. Farrow said, " In fall we practice two times a week for two hours each time. Fitness and small group practices are on the team member ' s own time. In the winter spring, we practice three times a week for an hour and a half each time. " Once the regular season began, the team competed throughout the Midwest, including games against the University of Wisconsin, Michigan State University and Bowling Green State University, Scoring an average of 47.81 points per- game and only allowing 6.72 points scored against them, the University ' s team cruised to victory in all regular season matches. As it was a club sport, the men ' s rugby team received a limited amount of support from the University. Therefore, recruiting was not an option. While they lacked the ability to recruit freshmen, new students still found their place on the team, such as first-year LSA students John Domanskis and Justin Gilson. What made the most difference on the outcome of the season was experience. Senior business major Andrew Finn said, " The team started 12 seniors in the Midwest finals, all of whom were pillars of the team, most notably: Nick Warack, Slutan Sharrief, Farrow, Aaron Turk and Mark Kuriluk. " The Midwest finals capped off a historic season for the team. Farrow said about the teams goals, " We met before starting practice in winter of 2004 and set many goals for the team. They included beating Michigan State, which we hadn ' t d one in 10 years, going undefeated, and winning the Midwest Championship.

Leonard photo Dance Student Assembly, DSA, was the student body government for the University ' s dance program. The dance program was a branch of the auditioned School of Music, which was one of the best performing arts schools in the United States, and along with dance, included programs in music, musical theatre, and theater. Like most student governments, DSA worked to decrease the gap between the administration and the enrolled students. Junior dance major Lizzie Leopold said that, " We serve as a voice for the student body, a liaison between faculty and students. " Any University dance major could elect to run for a position on DSA. Former members took on the responsibility of electing new members, thereby ensuring the even continuance of DS A ' s voice. Aside from acting as human bridges, DSA also had other obligations within their department. The executive board, made up of a president and a treasurer, led DSA. DSA meetings occurred once a month with the student members and then twice a semester with the chair of the Dance Department. During these times, DSA worked to plan, organize, and sponsor events such as Halloween parties and end-of-semester parties. They were also concerned with the community, raising money for groups in the Ann Arbor area. Emily Tubman, junior dance major, said, " DSA meets once a month to discuss issues pertinent to the students in the dance department. We also do community service. For example, we have a penny war which raises a few hundred dollars to sponsor a family at Christmas. " DSA also worked on a smaller scale. A big little sibling program was devised as means to facilitate underclassmen ' s shift into a collegiate-level dance program. All in all, within the Dance Department itself, DSA became a familiar organization to students majoring in dance. DSA was also looking to gradually expand into other areas of the School of Music as their participation increased through various other department events. en (V 00 s Q- ra I dance student assembly by : dorothy weise Front Row: llyssa Goodman, Heather Cohen, Adam Nadelson, Kathryn Lebowitz, Allie Nadelson, Jessie Pocloak Back Row: German Chaves, Carlos Remedies, Gabriel Doran, Joshua Liemer, David Eisenberg, Geoff Pillersdorf N- Ludtke photo Players enjoy a round of golf at the University of Michigan Golf Course.

Nadelson further expressed, " Whether it is working on skills at the golf range or playing on the course, the goals were to strengthen each others skills and make friends. " In addition to practicing, members prepared to compete as the official University of Michigan Golf Club. They planned to attend competitions against many other college teams and cl ubs in the spring. The team would not have to travel far in order to compete in these brand new events, most of which were charitable. This year the Golf Club held both the Greek Open and the University of Michigan Campus Classic. Unique to the game of golf, The University of Michigan Campus Classic was a tournament played with only wedges throughout Central Campus and was held on April 21. All money raised was turned over to a charity of the team ' s choice. Nadelson explained ' This spring we plan on working with the University of Michigan Alumni Association to organize a charity golf tournament, donating all proceeds to benefit prostate cancer research. " With barely a year under their belts, the Golf Club was a quickly growing organization. The Club concluded their successful second year by employing achievable goals and beneficial services.

J. Neff photo A Dance Marathon team sports the slogan, " This is how we do it " on their t-shirts while dancing on stage. Dance Marathon held a dance competition between all participating teams during the late night stretch. J. Neff photo dance marathon OOO i Dance Marathon, DM, was one of the more infamous groups at the University. DM was a non-profit student group that worked to raise money and awareness for pediatric rehabilitation programs, specifically for families in the Ann Arbor area. DM was affiliated with both the CS Motts Hospital in Ann Arbor as well as the William Beaumont Hospital of Royal Oak, Michigan. Essentially, DM planed, organized, and ran an annual Dance Marathon. The marathon was held at the Indoor Track and Field Building on South Campus. Students danced, or at least stood, for a period of 30 hours, each raising $250 or more. Over these 30 hours, a variety of DJs came to play, so there was a wide range of different music. Also over these thirty hours, between 3000-3500 people outside of the DM club came to watch and cheer on the dancers. The biggest activities of the long night involved learning a lengthy pre-choreographed dance. Members of the central planning team taught about half a minute of the dance every hour. Junior elementary education major Danielle Middleton said, " [The dance] pumped me right back up towards the end when I was getting tired. It got so long so it gave us something to practice with each other and kept us dancing all night long. I still remember some of the parts. My DM friends and I dance to them when we hear the songs on the radio. " One of the most unique aspects about DM was its aptitude to allow students to interact with the areas outside of the University. The families that DM supported attended the marathon as well. Dance Marathon effectively created an active sense of community and an atmosphere of fun. As best said by senior mechanical engineering major Shravanthi Gummadi, " It is a place where college students can come be kids again without having to feel weird about it... [we dance] in honor of the people who cannot do it themselves. " S 0) by : dorothy weise student organization resource center QQQ QO QQO2 one tudent Organization Research Center, or the SORC, was founded in 1970. Its major goal was to " provide an integrated approach to campus information and publicity dissemination. " It coordinated the use of low-cost campus advertising services for University departments and over 800 student organizations. The SORC promoted annual programming and workshop series through the monthly newsletter Get To The SORC. As a branch of the University Union ' s Arts and Programs department, the SORC was a valuable resource for many organizations. " We provided low-cost advertising services for student organizations and departments. We also provided a full-scale balloon service, graphic design assistance and standard office equipment. The SORC was open over 80 hours a week, " manager of the Michigan Union Recreation SORC Betsy Sundholm said. " SORC was a good resource which could be used in certain important events on campus, " junior electircal engineering major Vashist Vasanthakumar said. " Being the Vice President of the Cricket Club of the University - which is a registered body under recreational sports - 1 used the SORC widely for their banners and customized badges which the Cricket Club used when we telecasted the India-Pakistan cricket series at the Michigan Union. " The office was also a place for organization leaders to stop in and check their e-mail if necessary. The SORC also provided employment opportunities for many students who enjoyed being introduced to the wide variety of organizations on campus and worked well with people. " My main goal was to coordinate the efficient and fair distribution of limited campus advertising resources. Another goal of mine was to have the most effective, knowledgeable, and helpful student staff on campus. When we were open, the SORC was staffed almost entirely by students , " Sundholm said. All in all the SORC was a helpful resource for many student organizations on campus. The people working for the SORC were friendly and understanding in dealing with the ever-busy students of the University. Without this resource many University organizations would have had to look elsewhere for low-cost advertising. by : aparnaa bhatt An employee of the SORC blows up a balloon with the office ' s helium tank.

" It ' s an organization that was founded this year. It is basically a support system for African Americans and other minorities on campus that are interested in topics related to education, " senior language arts major and co-founder Desiree Harrison said. The other co-founder was senior elementary education student Sidney Bailey IV. Together, the two hoped that the organization could provide various support networks and resources to the University ' s School of Education in order to help recruit more freshman and sophomores. Like the Ross School of Business, the School of Education required students to apply for admittance at the end of their sophomore year, and the Black Educators of Tomorrow provided guidance in the application process. " We want to make more people aware of the school [of education] and the opportunities it can provide. We want to make it more known to LSA students, " Harrison said. Her motives for founding the organization were quite clear: " Ever since I ' ve been in the School of Education, I just felt like there wasn ' t a presence of African Americans there - either with staff or students. Before entering, I felt like they weren ' t totally interested in me, " she said. The organization and its members discussed expanding to other campuses across the country but felt that it was first necessary to build a strong foundation at the University. The Black Educators of Tomorrow met once a month in the School of Education. At the most recent meeting, the group held a panel discussion about urban education, and discussed the implementation of a community service program. " We want to start writing letters to teenagers someday in order to hopefully help mentor them through high school, " Harrison said. The Black Educators of Tomorrow was open to all students interested in any part of the School of Education. Students already involved ranged from freshmen undergraduates to graduate students. Harrison also mentioned that the best way in which to get involved was to simply attend one of their meetings. by : robert fowler Senior language arts major Desiree Harrison and senior elementary education major Sidney Bailey IV, the co-founders of Black Educators of Tomorrow, stand with a guest speaker at one of the group ' s meetings.

The organization did this through a number of academic and social activities in addition to opening membership to both graduate and undergraduate students studying BME or a related science at the University. In order to provide students with a helpful academic and career resource, BMES scheduled academic workshops, curriculum peer advising, and graduate school information events. The organization also helped students search for job opportunities and lab research throughout the year. BMES also planned regular community service and social events, including visits to a soup kitchen and a fall barbeque. These activities helped the organization create and strengthen a community of people with similar academic interests in addition to enhancing the quality of a BME education at the University. In order to encourage membership, the only requirements to become a member were to fill out a membership form and pay dues. Members were then able to choose which events they wanted to attend. This allowed students to get involved even if he or she did not want a huge time commitment. The organization was run by five officers, and specific activities were planned by different committees. These activities ranged from graduate and undergraduate academic activities to more social events. BMES was a unique organization in that in addition to providing helpful academic resources, it also worked to help members make new friends with common goals and interests.

Raghavan worked particular hard during these months, putting school work aside for the Kerry Campaign. Y. Granata photo As John Kerry announced his decision to run for the 2004 Presidential office, the College Democrats raced into action. With over 200 active members, the college democrats were a strong force on campus. There were 12 students on the executive board, which acted as leaders for the group. Therefore, the organization rallied its forces to promote Kerry and Edwards and get out the vote on campus. According to junior political science major and vice chairman Libby Benton, " We chose to focus most of our efforts on the Kerry campaign, because that was the closest campaign in the area. " In order to do this, the college democrats brought speakers to campus, passed out Kerry stickers, and were always available to answer questions about the election. According to Benton, " The best part was really just running around on the Diag, encouraging people to vote. I really have such a good time when we are just all together, trying to make a difference. " The college democrats ' biggest events occurred the day before the election in which Chris Heinz and Jake Gyllenhal came to campus. However, even after the elections, they did not stop working. In fact, the college democrats focused on local issues. They worked on students ' voting rights, building their chapter, and reaching out to other student groups. The democrats even planned a trip to the DC for the inauguration. The Democrats held weekly meetings, informally called " Kick Ass Thursday " meetings, in which all active and interested students were welcome. In February the group held a College Democrats Internship Fair in the Wolverine Room of the Union, encouraging students to learn more about politics and what it had to offer them now and in their futures. The Democrats also started an official University blog, an online forum where students carried out conversations and expressed their views and political ideas. The site also announced events and trips the group took, as well announcements about any political figures that visited campus, such as U.S. Senator Carl Levin. The site even advertised for students to run for Ann Arbor City Council. college democrats by : emily demarco and katrina deutsch college republicans 000 OQO Four more years. The words could not have been sweeter to the College Republicans come election night. On an extremely liberal campus, gaining support for the Republican Party was a difficult task, but one the College Republicans embraced. Even though the local vote for John Kerry overwhelmed the local vote for George Bush, the College Republicans were not upset with their effort. First-year movement science major Jennifer Lixey said, " I was disappointed, but then I came to the obvious realization that the community of Ann Arbor does not represent the majority of our country. It is the popular thing (it has been for years) to be liberal when you are in college. I didn ' t let it get to me. " Members of the College Republicans worked hard all year campaigning for President George W. Bush around campus. With over 1000 members involved on campus, it was easy to publicly promote Bush. The College Republicans began recruiting at Festifall while selling t-shirts sporting the logo, " M Go Bush. " The organization also campaigned to the large crowds at football games by passing out " Vote for Bush " and " Viva Bush " stickers. Also, the College Republicans organized rallies and protests. Lixey explained, " We got to go to hear the President speak at Rallies around Michigan where we were often in front row and were able to shake [Bush and other celebrity ' s] hands. They even recruited the Bush twins to come speak to the campus, and also protested Michael Moore ' s visit to campus. " Finally, in order to reward the group for a successful campaign, the College Republicans traveled to the Presidential Inauguration in Washington D.C. in January. As the state of Michigan would continue to be a swing state, the College Republicans had a lot to look forward to for the next election. Lixey concluded, " I feel that I had a great affect on the people here in Michigan. Maybe not on campus or Ann Arbor at all, but throughout the state we kept it a tight race. And you know what? [The Republicans] won by popular and electoral votes this year, so it was all worth it. I just pray that by staying involved and educated, I will then be able to have an effect on people and more opportunities in future elections to keep the moral standings and safety of our nation where it should be. " by : emily demarco The College Republicans show their support for President George W. Bush at one of their mass meetings. Starting as early as Festifall in September, the Republicans were active on campus passing out stickers and buttons during the pre- election months.

Originally, the station was a radio club organized within the dorms. Finally, in 1972, the current station named WCBN-FM was born. Ever since, it had been providing thousands of students and Ann Arbor residents hours of enjoyment over the years. Although the station broadcasted sports, news, and talk shows, it was primarily categorized as a freeform radio station. Fifth- year senior cellular and molecular biology major Josie Clowney, DJ and WCBN board member, felt the programming was very eclectic and allowed the DJs to chose all of their music themselves. Although about 30 percent of the DJs are not students, any person in a managerial position was required to be a student in order to maintain its student-run status. In addition, only the managerial staff received a small stipend. Most student didn ' t join the staff for the money. Clowney had been on staff for over two years. " I ' ve always been really into music. It ' s very exciting to be able to choose music and put it directly on the radio. To have that kind of power is really e -4 neat, " Clowney said. Clowney also noted that the average time commitment each week is about five hours. Some of the perks enjoyed by Clowney and other staff members included early access to records and a vast library collection with over 100,000 pieces. Sophomore undecided student and DJ Sarah Stedman also enjoyed her experience at WCBN. " Everyone who works there is so cool, and I just had to be friends with them. It ' s a welcoming community centered around music, " Stedman said. Students looking to join WCBN must submit mix tapes which were subject to lengthy and thorough reviews by the staff. " It ' s important that the mix has a wide variety of music, but still be coherent. Most students aren ' t successful their first time, " Clowney said. " Anyone who is persistent will end up on the staff in a few months. " In addition, students had to be trained on all the technical broadcasting equiment. Once finally on staff, students had the opportunity to create a successful show all by themselves. Some of the more popular shows included " The Local Music Show, " " Face the Music, " and " The Prop Shop. " Even recently, the station had begun to broadcast on ; tunes, reaching a much larger audience. Without a doubt, WCBN continued to grow in popularity among students and Ann Arbor residents each and every year. by : robert fowler OJ O n ' f Q- o ' jnior English and film and video studies najor John Notarianni mans the control ioard in the Michigan Radio studio.

Proux photo basement arts 00 QQO OQO T ;ie Basement Arts Organization was branched out of the Department of Theater and Drama. The most notable element about the organization was that it was entirely student run. Basement Arts was a theater company house produced, directed, and acted by students. Therefore, this made Basement Arts a safe place for artistic and theater-driven students to participate in the creation of theater while allowing themselves the freedom to challenge themselves, push themselves, and even make mistakes. Basement Arts was run by the Basement Arts Board, which consisted of one senior and one junior who supervised the operation of the company. The Board was in charge of managing up to one hundred students trying to put on as many as ten shows each semester. These shows were selected at the beginning of each semester and range from works such as The Complete Works of Shakespeare Abridged, by The Reduced Shakespeare Company to Duck, by Stella Feehily. Basement Arts turned out about one show every weekend. In addition to the production of plays, Basement Arts also organized late night activities that take place on Saturday from 11-12 p.m. and included Open Mic Nights, Mock Rock Nights, and Improv Groups. While the majority of students in Basement Arts did happen to be enrolled in the Department of Theater and Drama, this was in no way a prerequisite for joining the group. Senior Margo Brenner of the Basement Arts Board described the environment as " A space to learn and experiment. It is a forum for risk taking and often requires students to try their hands at something different, whether it is backstage or onstage, directing, stage management, or design. " Basement Arts was a place for students to allow themselves the opportunity to take those creative chances that are often so hard to find in college life. by : dorothy weise Junior Kyla Embry plays Marie, a prositute married to Woycezk, lying motionless on the floor after Woycezk kills her character.

The site, which is conveniently located in the lively State Street area, will eventually house upper-classmen. The approval for the site could not have come at a better time, considering the overcrowding situation RHA dealt with after the University admitted more freshmen this year than Housing had space for. " RHA had many late-night brainstorming sessions to come up with ways to make the transition for our residents go as smoothly as possible. When Housing came to RHA in June to tell us about the overcrowding issue, several ideas as to where to house the additional students came to the table, " senior political science major and RHA president Amy Keller said. RHA also worked as a liaison between Housing Administration, students, parents, and the media, fielding questions and dispelling rumors about the situation. " The executive board met with several groups to discuss the concers and issues that would potentially arise from the changing dynamics of housing assignments. We also contacted the Michigan Daily to help clarify the situation and correct any misprints, " senior Spanish major and RHA Executive Vice President Dark Williams said. Keller and her staff, who worked diligently to achieve their goals, received the Large School of the Year award at the 2004 Great Lakes Affiliate of College and University Residence Halls. Keller was also individually recognized as Student of the Year. Through events like Pre-Class Bash, Siblings Weekend, Res Hall Feud and the annual Charity Ball, RHA stayed in touch with students and truly fulfilled its pledge to be " the facilitators of excellence in the University of Michigan Residence Hall Community.

The thirty-one young men of the organization dedicated themselves to true brotherhood and following the will of God. Prism described them as a " brotherhood of individuals of common interests which sought " the development of higher qualities of the mind and nobler impulses of the heart. " In order to become members, male students were required to be pledges for two semesters, after which they were voted into full membership. According to sophomore biology major Jordan Fennema, Phi Alpha Kappa looks for, " people who have a good relationship with God or at least desire one. We want someone who can be trustworthy and live according to what this house stands for and will be loyal to the house. " All of the brothers were actively invested in the organization and its focus. Unlike other fraternities on campus, members were integrated into the house without any instances of humiliating hazing, as they instead stressed the idea of accepting " members based on who they are and what they stand for, not on what they put up with. " Junior chemical engineering major Joshua Moll said, " I love living in the house. I ' ve never lived in the dorms and I don ' t regret it. " Typical events for the brothers were a weekly Bible study that often included other Christian organizations, a canoe trip, a camping trip in the fall, and a formal banquet. They were also known to participate in many of the recreational sports and intramural teams. Through their combined efforts, they continued to define the character of their organization as " Christian men living together to further their walk with God. " Along with being Christian, living together meant always having other people around to talk with and share other interests with. " You don ' t get the same thing as you do when you ' re living with two or three guys in a house as you do when you ' re living with thirty, " Fennema said.

The first project, completed with an Art Design class, resulted in 160 square feet of art for the Hillel Foundation in Ann Arbor. During the following summer and early the next year, the MSC hosted Arts on the Diag, a public arts activities event co- sponsored by Arts at Michigan. Their programs, in general, included the creation of artwork for public buildings, hosting art-related entertainment events open campus-wide, service projects in underprivileged areas, free art classes, and promotion of student art-related jobs. The club ' s largest project was a 22-person, 476 square foot forest scene representing the Arboretum. " The Mural and Sculpture Club (MSC) sought to make a lasting creative impression on the community through the installation of public artwork and hosting of arts-related activities. Elysium Studios, a sister organization of the MSC, was separately funded and acted as an independent business to generate jobs for student artists and help see what it was like to try to be a professional artist in the Veal world. ' Members of Elysium grossed a collective $14,000 in the five months the business was active, " sophomore psychology major and president of MSC David Landau said. " The club, which began as the Hillel Mural and Sculpture Club, was financed through fundraisers, grants, and budget allocations from the U-M student government, " Ann Arbor news reporter Katherine Lowrie said. In 2005, the MSC completed a detailed mural in Pierpont Commons and continued construction for a complex mosaic for the Union. With about 170 members, this club met weekly and recruited many more members over the semester. Their organizational classification was visual arts as well as professional. MSC members experienced bursts of intense enthusiasm channeling their creative energy to beautify the campus. by : aparnaa bhatt david landau c s. r c_ o r-t C 3 Q - Front Row: Daniela Marchelletta, Nicolas Zapata, Porsha Cills, Julia Carp Back Row: Raza Zaidi, Jeff Kominsky, Sarra Nazem, Kevin Bhushan C. Leonard photo y the time students were in their third and fourth year at the University, a reasonable shift into a greater concern for GPA and academic performance transpired. This shift occurred simply because the proverbial light at the end of the college tunnel came into view and a notion of needing to plan for the future materialized. Upperclassmen students longed for a time when college seemed like it was going to last forever and there would always be another semester ahead to get one ' s grades up. However, the National Society of Collegiate Scholars looked to give first and second year college students a reason to strive for a high GPA. Senior economics and sociology major and President of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars Porcha Cills said, " NSCS is an undergraduate student organization. We recognize that many students arrive at college with AP Credit and these students who have obtained a cumulative GPA of a 3.4 are invited to join during the first or second year of their college experience. Once you are a third- or fourth-year student, you are no longer eligible to join. " Nationally, there were over 250 chapters of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars. The University ' s chapter of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars had over 4500 members. In order to run an organization of this size, an executive board of eight members was established including a president and five vice presidents as well as a treasurer, secretary, and webmaster. With a one-time fee of seventy-five dollars, undergraduates were awarded with a lifetime membership to the society. Once a part of the society, undergraduates were offered many benefits. Members could participate in scholarships and awards, leadership development programs, service programs, community building and information sharing are the focus of activities organized nationally. Cills explained ' The UM chapter of NSCS focuses on scholarship, leadership, and service. " Also, while many members were active within their chapter, they got involved on campus too. Members participated in different community service opportunities such as K-Grams and Habitat for Humanity. The National Society of Collegiate Scholars also sponsored many social events such as a Billiards Night or an Ice Cream Social. by : dorothy weise QQO QQO OQO oooat national society of collegiate scholars by : dor othy weise hellenic student association Uniting ethnically Greek students across campus, the Hellenic Student Association provided an opportunity to celebrate one ' s heritage and get involved at the University. Hellenism, officially defined in the group ' s constitution as " the cultural heritage of Hellenes both in the Homeland and Diaspora, " proved to be the foundation upon which this organization was built. Hellenic Student Association boasts nearly 200 members, 50 of which actively participate in the group ' s activities. Also according to the group ' s constitution, " The Hellenic Student Association aims to represent and showcase Hellenism on the University of Michigan campus; to encourage a diverse student membership; and give members the opportunity to be immersed in Hellenic culture. " The association was started in the early 1990s and maintained a close relationship with the Modern Greek Programs on campus. Senior political science and communication major and Hellenic Student Association president Alice Shulda explained that the best uOCJS way in which to get involved is simply show up to their numerous events and meetings. Once involved, students could enjoy myriad activities through Hellenic, including Dance Marathon, an annual trip to Montreal, frequent meetings at the local Greek restaurant Phano ' s, sports, and even social events. The group ' s main event, though, was Hellenic Cultural Month during October in which the group planned films, lectures, and other cultural events throughout the University. Shukla enjoyed how the group showcased Hellenism on campus: " The best part of getting involved in the chance to make friendships with fellow members who are of Greek and non-Greek decent. It provides an opportunity to work within the community. " Regardless of one ' s heritage, the Hellenic Student Association provided an opportunity to both learn about a different culture and have fun in the process. by : robert fowler Front Row: Eleni Gouvas, Katherine Stefanou, Lena Mortis, Alice Shukla, Anna Moniodis, Kristina Poulos Back Row: Chris Soves, Vasilios Tsourapas, Konstantinos Ghirtis, Nikolaos Mantis, Nickolas Milonas, Christos Chryssakis, Stefanos Delikouras E. DeMarco photo university activites center QO QQO With countless numbers of organizations on campus, the University Activities Center (UAC) was a student- run programming organization that worked to benefit various organizations. Located on the fourth floor of the Union, UAC ' s mission included the idea of, " Whether it ' s theatre, comedy, music, dance, lectures, competitions, multicultural programming, debates, movies, mini-courses, or just plain old parrying, UAC ' s committees can make it happen! " First established in 1965, UAC first began sponsoring popular short term, low budget activities. The program then escalated and met the needs of longer term and higher budgeted organizations such as the theater and dance groups on campus. This year there were fifteen University organizations under UAC supervision: Amazin ' Blue, Big Ticket Productions, ComCo, Consider Magazine, Every Three Weekly, Groove, Impact Dance, M-agination Films, M-Flicks, Michigan Academic Competition, Michigan Pops Orchestra, Mini-Courses, MUSKET, The Rude Mechanicals, and Speaker Initiative. UAC was run under a five person executive board which was comprised entirely of students: including President Mark Hindelang, Executive Vice President Edward Santos, Vice President of Finance Miranda Covey, Vice President of Marketing Matthew Kivel, and Gerald Duncan Vice President of External Affairs. With numerous responsibilities, this executive board ' s mission was, " to serve the administrative, financial and organizational needs of the General Board and of UAC as a whole. " The board was in charge of admitting or declining any organization wishing to be under UAC supervision. One UAC sponsored event this past year was the MUSKET production of Dreamgirh. Origionally directed on broadway by Michael Bennet, the musical was performed on campus November 19-21, 2004 at the Power Center. The fact that Dreamgirh was comprised of an exclusive 35 person black cast, made it a hard show to cast. The musical explored the entertainment industry during the sixties, a time when rhythm and blues began to become combined with popular sounds to create a new American sound. UAC helped out tremendously with the budget on this project. Junior voice performance major Jennah Delp commented, " You project a budget for the size of your ensemble and the number of times you are going to rehearse. You either meet that budget or revise it. It works out really well. Our org wouldn ' t exist because UAC funds everything that we do so while people would definitely participate for the experience of part, but there is no ways we could get everything Continued on page 323 by : emily demarco The cello section of the Michigan Pops orchestra, one of UAC ' s organizations, plays at their Pops Goes West concert on November 7, 2004.

" UAC ' s most unique contribution was the offering of mini-courses. Ranging from no cost to 70-plus dollars, UAC organized eight different subject specific mini-courses available to all University students, faculty, and staff. Each course ran approximately seven weeks long and met once a week for an hour. The subjects of the mini-courses were designed to answer curiosities of University students and addressed issues that no academic class could compete with. The eight subjects were bartending ($49), belly-dancing ($40), bridge for beginners ($5), massage ($76), mediation (free), pool ($45), sign language ($40), and yoga ($76). Sophomore political science major Shari Pomerantz said, " I really enjoyed taking the bartending course. I learned how to mix my favorite drinks as well as impress my friends with various bar tricks and tactics. The instructor was really down-to-earth and aimed the course at the students desires. I am glad I had the opportunity to take this class because a bartending class anywhere else would have cost me a fortune. " UAC sponsored 13 other organizations on top of MUSKET and their mini-courses, including ComCo, an improv comedy group, two dance groups, and two publications, the Every Three Weekly and Consider Magazine. Another organization, M-Flicks, brought films to campus, offering screenings and sneak previews of many movies. Big Ticket Productions, another UAC organization, joined up with Hillel and brought Ben Folds to perform a concert in Hill Auditorium. Big Ticket Productions has also brought big names, such as Comedy Central ' s No Class Tour and D.L. Hughley, to Ann Arbor. Managing all of these organizations enriched University student ' s lives with culture, publication, and performance, as well as learning experiences. Without UAC budget and programming assistance on campus, many campus organizations would not exist. UJ SJ c D I n 5! n S the michigan daily QO ooo Celebrating 114 years of editorial freedom, The Michigan Daily continued to both inform and entertain the student body. Both nationally renowned and widely read across campus, the publication boasted more than 100 active staff members and a daily circulation of over 18,000. Senior history major Jordan Schrader was this year ' s Editor in Chief and strove to make The Michigan Daily as successful as possible. " We want to inform people about what ' s going on across campus. People often get their news from the Daily and we try to the best source of everything going on at Michigan, " Schrader said. Although Schrader admitted that the editorial page is a bit politically leftist, he hoped that the rest of the paper was somewhere in the middle ground. Regardless, The Michigan Daily maintained its popularity on campus. To be a part of The Michigan Daily, Schrader commented that the best thing to do was simply stop by the office in the Student Publications Building. Staff members were able to put as much or as little time in to their work with the Daily as they wanted. Generally, it was anywhere from one story a month to 50 hours a week. Once on staff, students experienced some of the unseen benefits. " You get to see what ' s going on all over campus. There is such a diverse set of people and experiences, " Schrader said. Schrader also explained that his experience at The Michigan Daily was academically useful because the University did not offer any sort of journalism major. Rather, Schrader gained knowledge and experience from his time at The Michigan Daily. Being on staff, though, did require hard work and dedication. " Being on staff is tough. We demand a lot of people, and they need to be accountable for their stories, " Schrader said. The hard work paid off. The Michigan Daily has had a long history of success. For example, it covered stories such as the first polio vaccine, the Vietnam War, and last year ' s Supreme Court hearings regarding the University ' s admissions policies. As in the past, the Michigan Daily will continue to present important issues to University students for years to by : robert fowler Senior history and political science major and news editor Tomislav Ladika, senior history major and Editor in Chief Jordan Schrader, and senior English and history major and sports editor Gennaro Filice read the next day ' s paper in draft in the newsroom as senior literature and psychology major and sports writer Seth Gordon looks on.

Photo courtesy Tony Ding the g a r g I e QQO T he University was in need of a sense of humor. In 1909, The President was incapable of providing one, and lord knows a fresh take on things wasn ' t going to come from The Michigan Daily. Then a student named Lee A. White stepped forward and offered his services in the form of a humor magazine. Many a Regent had cursed the day they unleashed the unruly and misshapen entity, known as the Gargoyle, upon this unsuspecting University. From that moment, and for nearly one century since, this bad-boy of University Student Publication has dealt out untold pages of uproarious parody and cutting satire. Never one to heed such conventional wisdom as " never bite the hand that feeds you, " the Gargoyle was merciless in its attacks on the various foundations that held this prestigious institution above its own scandalous droppings of greed and corruption. Sadly, the Gargoyle was no stranger to the muzzle, and was shut down on more than one occasion for both political controversy and financial idiocy. The saga continued. Aside from producing its signature brand of irreverent satire, the always dashing, never demure Gargoyle counted a few other achievements among its successes for 2005. On the verge of ruin, this tenacious publication managed to pull itself out of dire straights with the Board for Student Publications by bringing in an unprecedented quantity of advertising money. Not since the days when the Gargoyle routinely sold questionable (yet highly profitable) ad space to tobacco companies had so much money been pulled in over such a short amount of time. Highlights of the year included the hiring of an 800 Ib. gorilla to the staff, the successful completion of the Danger Cart (the Gargoyle ' s sexy but lethal vehicle of doom), the planting of photographs of dubious taste within the offices of the Micbiganensian you now hold in your hands, and the kidnapping and subsequent recovery of the Gargoyle ' s now infamous giant wang. The Gargoyle staff continued to grow as it recruited in its usual manner: picking up derelict students and offering them shelter and acceptance in exchange for raw ha-ha juice. On the subject of working on staff, first-year LSA student Max Eddy said, " Yeah. I work on staff, so? " When asked to elaborate, Eddy interrupted and said, " I believe I said good day! " Sophomore film and psychology major Jason Skorski said, " We use the type of humor that only geniuses and mental patients enjoy, and no one in between. " Fortunately this rings only half true, as Gargoyle provided laughter and insight for students throughout the University year round. by : benjamin bass Front Row:Aurelie Martins, Kris Jacque, Ross Huff Row 2: DON ' T KNOW.Andrew Daar.Joelle Dodge, Marty, Jesse Singal.jared Beyer, Mohammed Elghoul.Tim Gilkison (hiding), SWEATSHIRT BOXVen Kolli, Jason Skorski Back Row: Max Eddy, Benjamin Bass, Gorilla, Keith Roshanger Guy Off by Himself (Because he ' s too cool to stand by anyone): Matt Thompson Photo courtesy Benjamin Bass First year LSA student and junior editor Max Eddy plays make-believe with his new lecture hall diorama, cut from the pages of the December 2004 issue.

The group, which was made up of eight to ten University students, planned the entire trip themselves, including the country they traveled to, the organizations and communities they worked with, and the amount of time they spent at each location. " I think the best part is that we have total control, from where we go to what we do, " junior CAAS and women ' s studies major Carla Thomas said. " The trip also allowed me to grow personally in more ways than I thought possible. " This past summer the group traveled to South Africa and Swaziland to document the effects the AIDS pandemic had on the country ' s youth. The trip started in Johannesburg, and then continued on to Benoni, Durban, and Cape Town in South Africa, and Mbabane and Manzini in Swaziland. The group also managed a day trip to Mozambique. However, the most valuable time was spent working with the orphanages, clinics and communities they visited. " What I will never forget about our time in South Africa was the optimism I saw in the people we worked with, despite their social and economic situation, and their willingness to consistently provide for us, " senior French and francaphone studies major Christophe Tedjasukmana said. The organization was first formed at Duke University by Courtney Spence, and spread to three other schools by 2004. South Africa marked the second trip for the Michigan chapter. The summer before, the group traveled to Uganda to document the improving AIDS situation of the country. The following year the group decided that they wanted to return to Africa the following summer to document the other side of the spectrum; a country where the AIDS pandemic was devastating a country - and South Africa was that country. The next trip planned was to Cambodia in May of 2005 to document the aftermath of the Khmer Rouge on society. Along with great friendships and neverending stories, the most important thing the members of Students of the World came back with were their experiences, and the ability to share them with the rest of their community. by : katrina deutsch Fifth-year English major Yvette Granata and senior general studies student Pete Woiwode interview Benjamin Nyirenda sports writer for the Times of Swaziland.

Whether it was through flyers for diverse cultural shows or live events occuring on the Diag, students had opportunities to embrace the various cultures of their peers. For the Persian Students ' Association, exposure to the University community and a sense of understanding were key goals. According to the mission statement of the organization, the main objective of PSA was " to sponsor Persian cultural and social events and activities and to promote an understanding of [Persian] cult ure. PSA also strived to build and sustain an environment of friendship and support for the students at University of Michigan and the surrounding community. " With this idea in mind, the Persian students strove to make an impact on the University community by not strictly limiting membership and involvement to Persian students.

For senior cellular molecular biology major Sonya Shovespi, what made the organization stand out among others was the fact that, " it is fun and serious, and not at all exclusive, as our group encourages all groups and cultures to engage in activities in a warm and welcoming manner. " The main event that the organization put on was the Culture Show in March. The show was a way to expose the community to Persian culture while bringing together families of Persian s tudents to witness their efforts. According to Shovespi, the show was " an amusing and vibrant display of Persian and Persian American culture, presented by Persians and friends to the community at large. " Through activities and attitudes such as these, the Persian Students ' Association facilitated a greater awareness of their culture to the University. persian students ' association by : nicole mammo ui OJ Q. at o n w ' C. O the michiganensian by : shelby ludtke For over a century, the Micbiganensian - the University of Michigan ' s official yearbook - prided itself on being completely student run. The budget, the editorial content, the stressful nights, the excitement at the book ' s unveiling; all of these things were left entirely to a group of University students. No advisor checked in to make sure things were coming along, that responsibility was left entirely up to the Editor in Chief and her staff. Impressive, yes. Overlooked as an accomplishment by many? Unforunately, yes to that too. ' ' Book sales, which provided the major source of revenue and funding for the production of the Micbiganensian, were down this year by a number so drastic it threatened the book ' s existence. Each year, the book ' s budget was cut in accordance with the declining book sales. This in turn meant that the number of pages in the following year ' s book was also cut, along with the staff and resources. This was quite disheartening for the Micbiganensian staff. Housed in the Student Publications Building, the staff was in close contact with The Michigan Daily, a widely circulated daily newspaper with significantly more potential for growth. The Michiganensian ' s fate seemed uncertain; the Daily had no fear of this. " I have a genuine concern for the future of the book because sales are low and getting lower. Students just don ' t seem to want to buy it. It is frustrating as Editor-in-Chief because you can only motivate a staff so much and no matter how hard you work, the results do not seem to reflect it, " junior communications and English major and Editor in Chief Katrina Deutsch said. " If this trend continues, our University could be without a book in the next five years, destroying a tradition that began in 1896. " Deutsch worked very closely with Michael Bolgar, a junior English major and the Michiganensian ' s Business Manager. Bolgar shared similar concerns with Deutsch. " We managed to cut our budget by $30,000 from last year, yet we are still finding it difficult to cover all of our costs while keeping our book at a reasonable price, " Bolgar said. Regardless of what happens with the book, Deutsch and Bolgar were proud of their personal accomplishments, as well as the staff ' s. " I ' m personally proud of the fact that I was able to continue my double major and keep my GPA up. In terms of the staff, everyone gets along really well. For me, it ' s almost like watching a part of my family, and enjoying when friendships and relationships are built from staff, " said Deutsch.

I ' m preserving the University ' s history while simultaneously leaving my mark. " Being on staff also provided a social outlet for the group. The office allowed a social atmosphere to eat or do work between classes, and staff parties allowed everyone to bond on weekends. There was the annual Christmas Party, Election Meeting Party and end of the year Gala, as well as a Gargoyle vs. Michiganensian Beer Pong Tournament. The staff lost this tournament and was forced to put an ad in the Gargoyle humor magazine as retribution. In true Michiganensian style, the ad was nothing short of spectacular: " We decided we wanted it to be something different, so I sent an email to staff seeing if anyone would be willing to pose nude with our books. People responded, so four of us did an hour-long photo shoot and used one of the photos for a Gargoyle ad. After the shoot wrapped, one staff member introduced himself to another because they had never formally met so they posed nude without even knowing one another. I cracked up, " said Deutsch. Overall, being a part of the long lasting history the Michiganensian created and preserved was a memory that highlighted the college experience for many staff members. As junior mechanical engineering student and sales and marketing manager Jason Barley said, " Being on staff definitely taught me how to talk professionally with people. It ' s fun being able to work with a large group of people and try to bring something that is somewhat failing out of failure. And it ' s also fun drawing pretty drawings with chalk in the Diag.

The four greek councils, the Interfraternity Council, the Multicultural Greek Council, the National Pan-Hallenic Council, and the Panhallenic Association, all offered a variety of greek organizations to become a part of. This year the Interfraternity council elected 10 new executive board members in November, who dealt with the aftermath of the lazing allegations made against two sororites and five fraternities n October. Although changes proposed to the greek system, such as eliminating fall rush, making a " no alcohol " policy for all louses, and having live-in advisors in all houses, were dropped n October, new proposals came soon after, such as making all fraternity parties " bring your own beverage, " and only opening these parties up to members of the greek community. Along with its social scene, the greek system prided itself on being the largest philanthropic group on campus, and held events such as Greek Week, which raised thousands of dollars for local causes.

The house ramained cleaner than most fraternity houses as they were unable to have open parties. C. Leonard photo by Shelby Ludtke Sorority fraternity house comparisons s tepping into Delta Gamma Sorority on Oxford Street, one forgot for a moment that they were on a college campus. Somewhere between off-campus student housing and the homes of Ann Arbor residents, sororities like Delta Gamma found a comfortable niche. Cushy furniture, scenic landscaping, and colorful walls enclosed live-in members on a daily basis. Fireplaces, pianos, window treatments - these were the things that made a house a home and no sorority on campus existed without at least a few of these accents. The stereotype was that most fraternity houses on campus were not quite as comfortable. While male residents had their rooms decorated as they saw fit, the common spaces were typically sparce. Playing host to crowded parties, the living and dining rooms usually had very little furniture and floors that have seen better days. Often occupying older homes, most fraternities were in need of renovation. This may have been true of some fraternities, but there were others, like Delta Kappa Epsilon (Deke), Phi Gamma Delta (Fiji), and Pi Kappa Alpha (Pike) that were housed in beautiful buildings in relatively good condition. Senior economics major Coleman Johnson, former president of Pike, said part of his decision to pledge the house was based on the fact that the house was nicer and cleaner than many others on campus. " The main difference is that sororities are much more expensive, crowded, and monitored. Because sororities are more expensive and, in general, have more members than fraternities, they can afford nicer things such as maids to clean up after them, busboys, newer carpet and other furnishings, and better food. " Johnson felt that it was not a contest based on surroundings, but instead a difference in preference of living situation. " Most fraternities, like Pike, expect their members to clean up after themselves, and at times because of this the house will become a mess. Sororities are a better place to live if you would like a more ' home- like ' atmosphere, but fraternities are better if you want more freedom, responsibility, and a place that you have the ability to have fun at if you so choose, " Johnson said. Sophomore LSA student Jennifer Reed, a live- in resident at Alpha Chi Omega sorority, also felt it was more than just a clean living environment that separated fraternities from sororities. " I loved that you had roommates to share all your problems with, and I especially loved that in a house of 47 girls, there was always someone to listen to you, someone to lend a shoulder for you to cry on. I didn ' t choose to live here, it ' s a requirement for all houses, but I am certainly glad I did. I do feel like it was a home. " Ci 5 n - i?

This was just one of the many lilanthropic events that Delta Upsilon rticipated in, contributing to greek life on mpus being one of the largest philanthropic oups overall. Other events included a larity dodge ball tournament, a battle of ie bands, and participating in K-Grams. According to junior film and deo studies major Craig Buschman, Doing philanthropy was a great way to get to know people and to show that fraternities can be stand-up guys that better the lives of the people of the community. " Since coming back on campus in the spring of 2003, the men of Delta Upsilon made a strong name for themselves on campus. Besides their many philanthropic events, the men performed strongly in academics. " Fifty percent of the brothers were either in the business or engineering schools, and most of the guys got very good grades, " senior economics major Jack Zuckerman said. Additionally, many of the men involved themselves in Dance Marathon and the Detroit Project. " We didn ' t really focus on the party aspect of the fraternity. We did a lot of IM sports, community service, and scholarship programs. We wante d to focus on the things that you couldn ' t really do with just a bunch of guys in a house. You didn ' t, after all, need a fraternity to have a party, " Zuckerman said. Brotherhood was also a very important part of the fraternity. In fact, Zuckerman stated, " My favorite part of Delta Upsilon was getting to know the guys really well. I lived in the house for two years, which allowed me to meet guys that I normally would not have been able to. " Buschman agreed, " Living in the house gave you a chance to be much better friends with the guys. You really built friendships that would last. " However, for Buschman, besides just the brotherhood, what made Delta Upsilon stand out was the fact that, " For years, people had been pushing fraternities towards stuff, such as no-hazing and non- secrecy policies, that we have always been. Therefore, it gave us a chance to lead the way for something that everyone else is striving to be.

But for some, fall at the University also meant that freshmen, as well as interested sophomores and juniors embarked on the mission of finding a Greek house that fit their specific needs. For women, the process of becoming a member of a sor ority was a much more complicated one than that of their male counterparts. To begin, the women visited each of the 16 panhellenic sororities on campus in the period of two days. They traveled in packs from house to house and were bombarded with questions about their majors, hometowns and connections to the sorority. First-year Art Design student Jaclyn Hornstein described the experience as " speed dating. " " I was constantly waiting for the bell to sound so I could move on. It was very rushed, but I think it was important to visit every house in order to know what you wanted. And this way you knew you didn ' t miss anything, " Hornstein said. After the women spent time at each house, they chose their top ten houses and submitted their scantron ranking to their Rho Omega. The Rho Omegas ' role was to help the women through the rush process, providing support, information about each house and mints to their girls before entering a house. Each sorority had a few girls representing its house, but the Rho Omegas were not allowed to tell the rushees which house she was in. After the women went back to their top ten houses, they ranked their top six. While the girls got to chose which houses they cut, the houses also cut girls, so not all rushees received invitations to come back to all of their top choices. Finally, rushees ranked their final three houses, if they had three left, that they would accept bids from. The night before bid day, each Rho Omega called all of the girls in her rush group to tell them if they received a bid, but not who it was from. On bid day, the women were called and given invitations, or bids, for the sorority that chose them for membership. In contrast, fraternity rush was much less complex and less time consuming. The men went to the house they wanted a bid from and fraternized with the brothers for a week. At the end of the week, the fraternity handed out bids to the young men they deemed worthy of their brotherhood. As first-year LSA student Brian Kotick said, " Some might say it was more difficult because you only chose one house, but usually you [already] knew some of the guys in it, and after hanging out at the house for a couple of nights you could get an idea of whether or not they would give you bid. It was rather simple. " LSA sophomore and Alpha Phi sister Britney Kresky and a new freshman pledge smile while another sister takes their photograph.

In realizing mission, Delta Sigma Theta provided an :ensive array of public services through its e point program consisting of Economic :velopment, Educational Development, :ernational Awareness and Involvement, iysical and Mental Health, Political Awareness d Involvement. The sorority put on over twenty- e programs yearly to stimulate, as well as ucate, the community on political, social, :ernational, and health related issues. One tivity was the " Who ' s on the Ballot " voter ucation dialogue which hoped to spread icwledge regarding this year ' s election and ndidates. A Ms. Fix-it car maintenance workshop brought awareness to campus students in fun and comprehensive ways. Another way the ladies expressed themselves was through step shows. Stepping was a cultural expression of the Black community. It stemmed from African traditions of using rhythms, attitude, and call-and-response in dance to communicate. Three step shows were put on this year for the campus as well as many smaller presentations at schools and community events. Traditionally most of the women in the chapter participated in the shows. It created a fun and friendly rivalry amongst Black Greeks and educated the crowd of the sorority or fraternity ' s history.

Tedjasukmana photo IK I .- - ' I Zeta Sigma Chi Formed in 1999, Zeta Sigma Chi (Z-Chi) enjoyed the honor of being the first multicultural sorority at the University of Michigan. The University named the chapter Epsilon and it was one of eight chapters of the sorority throughout the country. One of their annual events was rushing new members, which took place in January. In order to be eligible to join the sorority, all applicants had to be at least second- year students and maintain at least a 2.3 GPA. Other important qualifications included a strong interest in community service at the University and its surrounding areas. Rush events lasted O for three days, and attendance at one of those days was mandatory. This year, the sorority consisted of [ by Aparnaa Bhatt ] fifteen sisters, many of whom held positions as President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, Funding Chair, Social Chair and Alumni Chair. " To me, Zeta Sigma Chi meant raising social consciousness, excellence in my education, public service and most of all creating a space for women on this campus where there was none. Zeta Sigma Chi essentially meant love for yourself and for those around you. As President, I saw my role primarily as being one in which I was a living manifestation of our principles. I was Zeta Sigma Chi, " said Nagmeh Shariatmadar, President. Zeta Sigma Chi took education very serisouly; a high graduation rate among members was a very important ideal for the sisters. Therefore, the women assisted their sisters in completing their educational goals in every way possible. Sisters encouraged each other to embrace, discover, and share both their cultures, as well as the cultures of their sisters to broaden their horizons and gain respect for others. The sisters were mutually in charge of creating an environment in which women from different backgrounds and cultures could come together on one accord to become true sisters. They became one through their experiences and sharing, and grew into a family, providing members not only with lasting friendship, but also with the love, support and encouragement that helped the organization stand out from the rest, and made Z-Chi ' s truly radiant.

Even the most athletic competitor faced new challenges as they learned to run through a field of mud. " fl by Mary Katharine Zevalkink Getting down and dirty i n Mudbowl E very fall Sigma Alpha Epsilon (SAE) tilled its lawn and set out hoses in order to produce one of the Greek system ' s most infamous philanthropic events - Mudbowl. A man-made pit overflowing with mud and leaves was the stage where passionate players driven by the quest to be the next mudbowl champions fought for the title. Hundreds of students and alumni assembled on the corner of South University and Washtenaw Avenues to watch SAE and Alpha Epsilon Pi (AEPi) fraternity contend for the victory. Held on homecoming weekend, Mudbowl had evolved into such a special tradition that it has even been featured on ESPN. " Mudbowl is a 71 year old event that is one of the few great traditions left at U of M, " junior economics major and SAE brother Grant Parker said. " It is one of the largest philanthropic events by a single house in the greek system. Without mudbowl, homecoming wouldn ' t be the same. " All teams participating practiced in the fall. Some fraternities and sororities practiced weekly, others almost every night. Those who were really serious recruited coaches and even made team uniforms. These teams received invitations to play in the championship game after they beat out other respectable fraternities and sororities in tournament play which was held on the weekends leading up to the October 9 game. The game did not produce surprising results. SAE ran away with its victory, crushing rival fraternity AEPi. Providing halftime entertainment was the much anticipated mini-mudbowl contest between sororities Delta Delta Delta and Alpha Phi. Alpha Phi captured its first victory by only one point an exciting achievement for the sorority. The win was especially meaningful because this year also marked the first entry of Alpha Phi into the competition, as they had not vied for a spot in the playoffs in over a decade, " Mudbowl was something I have always wanted to do at Michigan, so finally entering and actually winning the tournament my senior year was the perfect memory to leave with, " senior biology major and Alpha Phi sister Carrie Baldwin said. Fun aside, the purpose of Mudbowl was to raise money for charities, specifically the Mott ' s Children Hospital and the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The event raised $7,500. " The passion with which the game is played is a testament to the passion of its cause, " senior history major and SAE brother Justin Hedrick said. In addition to the money rasied from the entrance fees that teams were required to pay, donors also included families of the fraternity members, local restaurants and stores, and the videogame company EA Sports. At the end of the day, participants and donors alike walked away satisfied. 2 Q. During halftime, an SAE brother watches Delta Delta Delta and Alpha Phi face off on the field.

Photo courtesy Aaron Maurice Delta Kappa Epsilon . by Emily DeMarco ] Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity, most imonly referred to as Deke, maintained ellence on the national level and for the past ) years at this University. Five Deke brothers ntually became United States Presidents, [uding Gerald Ford, who was a Deke at this iversity. The fraternity ' s motto stated that rother must be, " a gentleman, a scholar, and My good fellow, " which was just what this iversity ' s Iota chapter strived to achieve, ior industrial and operations major and ial chair of Deke Carlos Moncada said, " We it have stereotypical frat guys. Everyone lice and gets along well. We look for guys it will fit in and get along with everyone. " sncada also stressed that Deke was similar to ny fraternities in that there is a common goal better their house, but they tried to stand out m the others. One way Deke showed their difference from other fraternities on this campus was the existence of the Shant. Built in 1876, only 21 years after Deke was colonized at this University, the Shant was tucked away at 611 1 2 William Street in between NYPD Pizza and Jimmy John ' s. The building, hidden in the shadows, was a mystery to everyone on campus except the brothers of Deke. The Shant served as Deke ' s national headquarters, as well as a unique spot to hold their weekly chapter meetings and special ceremonies. Junior economics major and treasurer of Deke Brian Atz said, " It ' s so rare having such a historic and special landmark on campus for your fraternity. " Deke was the only fraternity on campus to have two places to call their own. In addition to being unique, Deke worked to be a very social chapter. Throughout the year, Deke held many brotherhood events including poker tournaments, beer pong tournaments, and movie nights. They also traveled to Canada on an annual ski trip to Blue Mountain and went to Cancun, Mexico, on spring break together. One of the most anticipated events of the year, however, was Deke ' s annual Tahitian Date Party. Deke invited a sorority over and decorated their entire house. Moncada said, " We go all out. We have waterfalls and a bridge. There ' s water with sand under the bridge, beach volleyball, and palm trees. It ' s decked out. " Furthermore, Deke hosted a Holiday cocktail party at their house at which they adorned the house in, according to Atz, " Chrismakkah " decorations. With so many past achievements on campus, Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity had many standards to live up to and successfully kept their genuine reputation in tact.

Whether it was a casual dance, Sadie Hawkins, or Homecoming, students planned in advance, guys nervously asked girls, and the girls spent hours picking out their dress and doing their hair. For the king of high school dances, Prom, all of these activities escalated because for many it would be the last formal dance they attended for years to come. Members of the Greek community, however, experienced this excitement every year at the University. One of the main social events and perhaps one of the biggest draws for girls to join sororities were their formals, which were held at least once a year or sometimes once a semester. While the sisterhood, philanthropies, and beautiful living spaces were all important benefits reaped by being a sister in a sorority, all of the social events from dances, parties, and formals made a huge impression on sorority recruits. " Getting dressed up, buying new dresses and going to dances were definitly all perks of joining a sorority, " first-year LSA student and Alpha Chi Omega pledge Lauren Benson said. Formals gave women in the Greek system the opportunity to leave their stress from class and their busy schedules at the door and focus instead on cherishing their moments at the University with the friends they had made. Making memories outside of the classroom by finding the perfect dress, getting hair and nails done and asking a prince charming - or at least a good substitute - to take her to a black tie event. The location of the event was varied based on each house. Fraternities often held their formals in a more elegant manner, occasionally traveling as far as Chicago or over the border to Windsor, Canada to make the event into a long weekend. Other houses were known to have booked their formal at a fancy hotel in a surrounding town, on a yacht on the Detroit River, or at the Tigers Stadium downtown. Whatever the venue or the menu and whether the date was a friend or perhaps something more, formals were a good way for fraternity brothers and sorority sisters to spend quality time with each other creating memories that they would share for a lifetime.

Neff photo Alpha Gamma Delta . by Jocelyn Kalmus ] Alpha Gamma Deltas mission dedicated the sorority to " academic excellence, leadership development, high ideal and sisterhood, " and the women of Alpha Gamma Delta held up all of those ideals. Their dedication to the University, the community and to each other was as prevalent as the squirrels on campus, which coincidentally were their mascot. For the ladies of Alpha Gamma Delta, the 2004 school year meant promoting a " positive image of Greek Life, " as junior aerospace, material science and engineering student Anna Lawitzke said, as well as finding new ways of getting involved on campus. LSA undecided student Krystal Casey, who was also Vice President of Campus Relations, collaborated with the language departments and set up informal conversational hours once a week open to all language students, not just Alpha Gamma Delta sisters, to meet new people and practice speaking foreign languages. The program enjoyed quite a bit of success and some participants even received extra credit for attending sessions. The Alpha Gams also organized many charity events. Their annual events of Lip Jam, working at soup kitchens and making cards for the children at Mott ' s Children ' s Hospital inspired a lot of the girls to get involved with the community. They also started a new tradition on Veteran ' s Day, talking with ROTC members, honoring their services to our country. In addition to all of their academic and volunteer work, the sisters focused on making thei r bonds of sisterhood even stronger. " Our sisterhood was a lot stronger than it was in the past. Being one of the smallest houses on campus, you really got to know all your sisters well, " Lawitzke said. She addeed, " We only had three people living out [of the house] this year so it made us really close. There wasn ' t a hierarchy in our house - underclassmen could be great friends with seniors and no one though twice about it. " Freshman LSA student and Alpha Gam pledge Kate Essad agreed. " When I walked into the AGD house, I got a sense of warmth and honesty from all of the girls. They were all so genuine and I felt comfortable there, " Essad said. The new pledge class, along with the existing sophomores and juniors, hoped to continue their new strength of sisterhood in their following years at the University.

Painting the rock was a way for the house to recruit potential new members. Photo courtesy Phi Delta Theta Phi Delta Theta by Elizabeth Brooks ] The beautiful brick house located at 137 Washtenaw Avenue was home to one of the niversity Greek system ' s proudest traditions: ii Delta Theta Fraternity. Phi Delt became a irt of the University in 1869, making it one of e oldest Greek houses on campus. Founded at Miami University in 1848, hi Delt was also one of the oldest fraternities the country and boasted more than 172 lapters in 43 states and 6 Canadian provinces, ith nearly 203,700 men initiated since its unding. After a four year absence from the niversity of Michigan ' s Greek system, Phi elt returned to campus in 2002 and moved ick into the house that the fraternity originally rcupied for 102 years. Over the course of the past four years, le house underwent large-scale renovation and ;pair projects financed by Phi Delt alumni, jsting $500,000. Such repairs included re- jrpeting, re-painting, and re-decorating all f the bedrooms, bathrooms, and the kitchen. Living in the house was great because you had the advantage of living comfortably with 15 or 20 of your best friends down the hall, " junior American culture and economics major Paul Wezner said. This year, Phi Delt received its charter again, marking a new beginning in the fraternity ' s history on campus. " I hoped that Phi Delt would return to being a prominent house on campus as it was during the past three decades, " President Will Todd said. " With no tradition and virtually no leadership to guide us, we struggled for a while, but this past semester we put together several plans of action and hit the ground running. We promised our members they would no longer be a colony at the end of the semester, and we came through. " Though Phi Delt was one of the smaller fraternities on campus as far as membership numbers, it continued to grow both in the number of brothers pledging the fraternity and in involvement in the Greek System as a whole. The Fraternity reemerged in the Greek System, both socially and philanthropically. Phi Delt held numerous social events, including a formal in Windsor, Canada and bowling nights, as well as representation in intramural sports and the Mudbowl. The fraternity also hosted a concert on their front lawn this fall. Philanthropy was an important objective as well; the men participated in Kappa Alpha Theta ' s " Soap for Hope " carwash, which raised money for the sorority ' s national charity, and co-hosted the Culture and Cuisine Fest with Trotter House, which PROVIDES, a local organization doing work for children in third world countries, put on. " It was a slow going process, but we started to recruit better members than we did at first. At first many of the brothers didn ' t understand the whole brotherhood aspect, but we have all grew together as brothers especially in the past few months, " Todd said. " When it came to presence on campus, we were a relatively small house so it was hard to get our name out there. We participated in as much as possible and we looked forward to being even more active in the future.

Neff photo by Elizabeth Brooks Greek Week supports charities w ith spring in the air and the student body gearing up for the last month of school, the Greek community celebrated the end to another year by putting on its largest philanthropic activity of the year, Greek Week. This week and a half of games, educational activities, and shows provided an air of friendly competition for participants centered around the idea of giving back to the community. The money raised during Greek Week benefited Camp Heartland, a camp for children affected by HIV AIDS, and the Coach Carr Cancer Fund, started by football Head Coach Lloyd Carr and his wife, Laurie, to benefit the University of Michigan Cancer Center. A portion of the revenue also went toward the winning houses ' national charities. Greek Week 2004 marked the first year that members of the Multicultural Greek Council and the National Pan-Hellenic Council joined the Interfraternity Council and the Panhellenic Association in competition. " Including the multi-cultural houses helped to add unity to the Greek system. We hoped to see the tradition continue, " junior engineering student and Steering Committee member Stephanie Ritok said. The participating houses were divided into 15 groups that competed against one another in a variety of games and contests, ranging from a Blood Battle benefiting the American Red Cross, to a dance contest at Studio 4, to Mr. Greek Week, an event where a fraternity member from each team participates in a pageant featuring a talent copetition, a toga contest, and a hero contest. Greek Week also included opportunities for Greeks to learn more about the people benefiting from the funds raised. Journey of Hope featured campers and staff from Camp Heartland and Coach Carr discussing the charities that benefit from funds raised. The most highly-anticipated and most- attended contest of Greek Week was the Sing and V ariety competition, held on the last day. In this competition, members of each team showcased their singing and dance routines onstage at Hill Auditorium. Team 2, with members representing Pi Kappa Alpha and Sigma Delta Tau, captured the title of Sing champions with a performance of " Jesse ' s Girl, " and Team 3, Kappa Alpha Theta, Chi Psi, and Gamma Sigma Rho, won the Variety contest. Greek Week 2004 ended successfully, raising $40,000 for charity. " Oneof the bigger accomplishments was starting a silent auction and giving the money to more local charities, " Ritok said.

Pi Kappa Alpha by Robert Fowler ] Sitting back from the street, the large, white house at 1501 Washtenaw was home to the brothers of the Pi Kappa Alpha (Pike) Fraternity. With over 100 active members, Pike was one of the largest houses on campus. Large numbers not only meant large parties, but large opportunities for success in philanthropy, athletics, and campus involvement too. The primary philanthropic events were the Pike Football Run, Pike Comedy Night, and Reach Out!. In only its second year, the annual Pike Football Run called for brothers to run a football along the 187 mile trek from the University to Ohio State University just before the big football game. The actual run took over 30 hours and helped to raise over $12,800 to be donated to the Coach Carr Cancer Fund. " The football run was a lot of fun. It brought us all together and raised a lot of money. It ' s cool to run a football so far, " first-year pre- business student Chris Foley said. Pike Comedy Night also helped raise thousands of dollars for local charities while Reach Out! provided opportunities for brothers to mentor local middle school students a few times each week. Philanthropy, though, was only one aspect of being a brother in Pike. In addition, Pike had members in almost every school and major at the University, including business, art, aerospace engineering, history, and pre-med. Pike also continued to participate in every intramural sport available, including basketball, flag football, swimming, and soccer. Having so many members allowed Pike to often field several teams for each sport. " ! love playing intramural volleyball because I miss playing it in high school, " junior aerospace and I Spanish major Carl Jones said. Large numbers also enabled Pike to be active within numerous campus organizations, such as MSA, club lacrosse, Detroit Project, Dance Marathon, and the Compulsive Lyres. Such activities, though, did not get in the way of maintaining a tight brotherhood. Members enjoyed annual brotherhood events like the ski trip to Crystal Mountain, paintball, poker tournaments, and numerous date parties and mixers. " The ski trip has been my favorite event this year. It was fun to hang out with the guys outside of the University setting, first-year pre-business and vocal performance student Karl Co said. On the whole, Pike enabled its members to be active on campus, help the community, and have fun.

FunKtion was first introduced to the University at Festifall in the September of 2000. Tedjasukmana photo m by Jocelyn Kalmus Social scene unites Greeks D ancing, drinking and meeting new people typified most fraternity parties, mixers and third party vendors. During welcome week in the fall of 2004, Pi Kappa Alpha hosted a party every night attracting not only returning members of the Greek and non-Greek community, but also new freshman who were first being introduced to the Greek system. Freshman boys quickly learned that it was much harder for them to get into the frat parties than for the girls, or the members of the Greek system. This was one reason many freshman boys decided to rush this year. Halfway through the year, however, in an effort to cooperate with the University and the interfraternity council, the fraternities did not throw as many parties as they did during welcome week, and the parties that took place during the first week of second semester were more selective in who the frats let in. This was the first stage in implementing a new process for the following year in which fraternity parties would, for the most part, be only accessible to members of the Greek community so as to keep them smaller and safer like mixers. In addition to somewhat impersonal frat parties, sororities and fraternities held mixers with each other throughout the year in order to meet more members of the Greek community as well as provide bonding activities for their new members. Throughout the recruitment and pledging terms, social chairs organized many pledge activities for their pledges as well as the new pledge class of another fraternity or sorority. " Marriage " parties and " Around the World " parties were very popular amongst the Greek houses. " For the new pledges, mixers were a way for them to easily talk to other people that they may not have encountered had they not joined the Greek system, " said sophomore Delta Phi Epsilon Social Chair Ali Deaner. Another way Greek houses were able to meet other Greeks who they wouldn ' t have otherwise mingled was at 3rd Party Vendors. " It was important to share experiences with other houses to make the entire Greek system exist as a whole, " said Deaner. 3rd Party Vendors were held at bars that the fraternities and sororities rented out for a night so they could essentially be at their own private club. Because there were so many more fraternities on campus than sororities, each 3rd Party Vendor was usually attended by two fraternities and one sorority, which gave the girls plenty of choices for dancing partners.

This past year, Pi Beta Phi or Pi Phi, maintained a membership of over 100 girls with 60 living in their house located on Tappan Avert i of the sorority was to diverse house and the sisters excelled at this goa by being involved on campus. Pi Phi was home to varsity H s A Capella group members who were politically active onl dance groi MR bers, journalists, and Sophomore mechanical eng major and Vice President of Social Advancement Claire Pet lBud, " Pi Phi was unique because of our divj Kip of girls, but also our unity to so everyone could find a friend! " Pi Phi also had a large amount of activities going on throughout the year. Pi Phi ' s national philanthropy was " Links to Literacy, " and all the money collected goes towards advancing children ' s reading skills. Their local philanthropy project was called " Champions are Readers. " For a month, Pi Phi ' s traveled to an elementary school twice a week to read with third graders. At the end of the month, the sisters threw a parry for the .ill the students who completed the progr.rnijunior sociology major Brittany Monies said, " Philanthropy was important because we got to give back to the commun B believed to help others and it was really rewardin to know you touched another person ' s life Plus we had fun doing it together because ir also became a bonding experience for us. " Pi Phi also participated throughout the Greek system and toolkDartmthc other house ' s local philanthropies such J RHowl and Outburst Game Nights. Doing service was an important part of Pi Phi, but all the girls looked forward to the yearly date parties as well. This year Pi Phi held four date parties: their annual Barn Dance in October, a semi-formal at Old Shillelagh Bar in December, a " My Tie " event in February, and a formal at Comerica Park in April. LSA freshman Emma Ritter said, " [Barn Dance] was awesome because you could be casual and crazy with what you wore. It was all about just kicking back and having a good time. " ersisterhood events such as a Mary Kay part)-, OC nights, and a knitting workshop along with a couple third vendors. Overal .together ar Phi ftheir ophon B Btory and politMStT science major and hthciency Chair Amy Kamin said, " Pi Phi gave me so much more than I signed up for. I thou r W r Wto meeting a new group of friends who I would eventually live with. However, I not only made new friends, but a new family, and I have been allowed to develop as a person through Pi Phi ' s values and those of my friends.

The Deephers ' motto, " esse quam vidiri, " meant " to be rather than to seem to be " and the women of DPhiE supported this adage throughout the year by participating in and leading many philanthropic events as well as social and sisterhood gatherings. Activities that the ladies engaged in included volunteering at the Ronald McDonald House and with K-Grams, holding their annual Pancake Breakfast to benefit organizations dedicated to treating Anorexia Nervosa, and participating in all of the Greek Week activities. Participating in philanthropic events was very important to the women of Delta Phi Epsilon because they understood that they were privileged not only to be in such a supportive sorority, but also to be at the University. DPhiE also had two teams for Relay for Life. " DPhiE wanted to improve its name on campus through various fundraising events and social events, " said sophomore French major Liz Schuller. We wanted to get our name out on campus as a fun and important organization while improving the name of the Greek system as a whole. " The Deephers were active social members on campus. Having social events like the annual Crush Party, held at Nikki ' s Bar in Detroit, and third party vendors, helped the girls de-stress from all of their studying and have fun while meeting other members of the Greek community. In addition to semi-formal and formal, DPhiE added a new date party in February. Instead of the usual dance at a bar, the girls took dates to a Piston ' s game, which allowed for a whole new type of bonding and was received very well by all who attended. Another perk of the house was the constant social atmosphere of the house. " It was great to be at DPhiE on the weekends to just hang out at the house with your friends, but there were also always people going out to do fun things too, like the basketball and hockey games. Girls in DPhiE did so many different activities that there was always someone who would share their interest with you, " said Schuller. Mimi Jiang, Arianna Gavzy, Alana Greenberg, Amy Hoch.

What made the house extraordinary was that the girls not only sought these ideals solely as a member of the house, but rather Alpha Phi recruited campus leaders who brought these principles together. The first charity event in which Alph Phi participated in was the 71 s ' annual Mud Bowl game organized by the brothers of Sigma Alpha Epsilon. After stepping out just over a decade ago of the tournament which raised money for a number of local charities, the girls decided to try for the title. On the morning of the Hcjoiecotning game, Alpha Phi clinched a victory over Delta Delta Delta. " The taste of mud, champagne, and victory is one I will never forget from my Mudbowl experience, " said senior dental student Carrie Baldwin. Alpha Phi was extremely involved in supporting their national charity, the American Heart Association, over the course of the year. Their annual 5K Run Walk held on campus successfully earned thousands of dollars to be L donated to the organization. In addition, :k-girls sported red " Take Heart " wristbands made by Alpha Phi International that mimicked the popular " Live Strong " bracelets to show their support In January, the girls of Alpha Phi lost someone close to their hearts as their chef, Dave albert, passed away unexpectedly from cancer. After his passing, the girls organized with the night was sponsored at Necto where all of the proceeds of the night went to Dave ' s Fund. These two events were only the beginning steps in an effort to give back to the man who gave so much to them. Individually, the sisters of Alpha Phi spread their support of love and charity through a number of other organizations on campus. LSA freshman and Director of the Greek Philanthropy Organization, Laura Zeligman, for example, organized a number of other charity events on campus, including a fight to help those involved in the tragic events of the tsunami disaster. " We will be partnering with help of Sigma Kappa a college fund for the organizations on campus and we will be putting .r the children he left behind. Through their first mission, a mail donation drive, the sororities raised over $1200 for the benefit of Calbert ' s family. Then, on the night of March 9, a bar on Best of All Worlds to help Tsunami Victims, ' said Zeligman. It was the involvement the girls invested both inside and outside of the house that made Alpha Phi so strong.

The Charles Baird Carillon, mounted atop the Tower, was tied for fourth heaviest carillon in the world. L. Worcester photo Leaves changed, the wind started to blow, and students began pulling out their fleece jackets for the cooler weather. Fall came late this year, offering a longer opportunity for t- shirt and flip flop wearing. Football games, the Presidential election, and guest speakers such as Noam Chomsky and Michael Moore kept the season exciting. For some, Thanksgiving marked the end of fall, as the cold winter weather became a reality upon their return to Ann Arbor after the time away. : a!len leaves cover the lewalk at the corner Hill Street and Sybil :et. Students who near these streets :ed from a short to campus and all facilities. f . L ' roitx photo Traffic lights from Washtenaw Avenue reflect in the rain-filled tennis courts on Palmer Field.

Located on Maynard Street, the SAB housed departments such as the Univeristy Housing Office, the Career Center and the Huetwell Visitors Center L.Proux photo Students went home for Thanksgiving as harsh weather came to Ann Arbor. However, this sleet and rain was just the beginning of what was a long winter. The first snowfall put smiles on the faces of some students and frowns on others. But soon all smiles turned to frowns as students realized that walking to class in snow and wind negated any po ssibility of enjoying the weather. Cars were plowed in, walkways were covered, and bus floors were soaked with dirty water. [OttMEIISISUUTtlCI!

C. Leonard photo 00 n o CO d ' V With the American flag in the back, remnants of leaves remain on tree branches, signifying the end of fall and beginning of winter. The flag had a special meaning for students this year, as some had family and friends fighting in Iraq. C. Leonard photo Winter continued on until the end of March. January was particularly painful for those who did not enjoy the snow, as two large blizzards came to campus. Students learned to make the most of the snow by sledding in the arboretum or making snowmen. However, the snow and cold winds did not make walking around campus easy. It was especially difficult walking home from libraries and study sessions in the evening, as the dark skies and fierce winds only added to the winter coldness. stAnn Street remains ipty after a winter owfall. East Ann was rated north of Central impus, and allowed quick walk to classes stores and eateries in the Central impus area. Neff photo - I One of the trumpet players in the Hockey Pep Band plays the " Let ' s Go Blue " fight song at the beginning of the Michigan vs. Michigan State game on February 4 at Yost Arena. In additional to the traditional fight songs, the Pep Band also featured comical relief with the " Rocky and Bulwinkle " theme song and dances featuring the band director. J. Neff photo n I Happy that they no longer have to wear winter coats, gloves, and scarves, a group of underclassmen walk from Alice Lloyd residence hall on the Hill to Central Campus. What seemed like a long walk to class in the cold winter months turned in to an opportunity to be outside for students who lived on the Hill. S. Ludtkc pboto Cropped pants and flip-flops began appearing on campus in early April, signifying the end of the cold winter weather. As students were happy that they no longer had to deal with third and fourth layers of clothing, some grew nostalgic, as they realized their time at the University was coming to an end. Students filled the Diag, either reading, eating, or chatting with friends, restaurants and bars reopened their outdoor seating areas once again, and Ann Arbor transformed into a lively, outdoor atmosphere. - " We want you to go forward asking the questions that will change lives and ideas You can e proud of your alma mater as it continues to demonstrate what it means to be the Leaders and Best, and we are very proud of you as you take Michigan ' s special flame out into a world that is waiting for your light " -Mary Sue President, University oj Michigan Winter Commaiament.
