EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the third in a
series of four articles on the two new intra-
mural buildings. This week a look at what's
Inside of the buildings.

Inside the walls of the new intramural
building being buit on the corner of Washte-
naw and North University, lurks an utterly
huge, recreational giant whose feet sink two
stories into the ground.
And, reportedly, the giant has a brother
who lives inside of the new North Campus
building being constructed, behind Bursley,
who is smaller but just as dangerous.
WHEN THESE two gants open their mouths
on July 1 and start swallowing University
personnel, their additional space will give
Michigan more i n d o o r intramural space
than anywhere else in the country, with
332,760 square feet. The Central Campus
addition is 74,000 gross square feet while the
North Campus addition is 44,000 gross square
They may not appear to be giants from
the outside, but once inside users will find
plenty of room to run around. "Going two
stories into the ground," Dr. Michael Steven-
son, head of the intramural department
says of the Central Campus building, "is
what gives us so much space."
On the main floor of the Central Campus
facility is the main gym, which is just a
touch bigger than the one in the IM Sports
Building on Hoover St.
The gym holds four college sized basket-
ball courts, or four tennis courts, or six
volleyball courts or nine badminton courts.
Suspended high above the gym floor on the
wall is about one-eighth miles worth of cork
track for joggers.
ALSO ON THE main floor are the intra-
mural and physical education offices, con-
ference rooms, the IM reception room, a
first aid room, a classy looking physical
education activity room, and the main lobby
which connects to the Washtenaw walking
On the lower levels of the Central Campus
building the intramural department will have
n i n e handball-paddleball-raquetball courts,
six squash courts with high ceilings, a mar-
tial arts room, an exercise room, a weight
training room with two universal gyms, club
snorts locker rooms, men's and women's
locker rooms, and a commons area.
In both the men's and women's locker
rooms are hot rock saunas, just like any
other country club would have.
The physical education department also
has its share of facilities on the lower part of
the building, including a gymnasium the size
of a small basketball court, two locker
rooms and two laboratory rooms.
The North Campus building will house a
gymnasium that can hold two and one-half
basketball, three badminton, three volleyball,
or one tennis courts with a tenth of a mile
track around it.
This building will add another five hand-
ball-raquetball-paddle courts and two squash
to help ease the pressure the IM department
has felt for these facilities.
FOUR MORE office rooms, another con-
ference room, and equipment room matted
for martial arts, a weight training room,
and a commons area are under the North
Campus roof also.
But the list for the little giant does not
stop here. The smaller building will also
have a pool and a fenced off patio area to
counter the Margaret Bell Pool which is
attached to the Central Campus IM building.
FINALLY, THE building will have men's
and women's locker rooms with, you guessed
it, separate saunas.
Enough for you? Possibly, but the IM de-
partment feels, "We still won't have more
facilities than what we will use."
But let's face it: two new friendly giants
are better than none.

The next issue of Rackham Student News you receive in
the mail will contain a referendum ballot. You will be
asked to approve an assessment increase for Rackham
Student Government. Why will this increase benefit you?
To find out, read how RSG has met some of the most
pressing student needs in the past:;
PART-TIME JOBS. RSG co-sponsors the Graduate Employment Advo-
cate for Rackham. This office has been very successful in finding
part-time jobs in the Ann Arbor area for Rackham students and their
spouses. Over 25% of the students served by GEAR in the past year
have been successfully placed. And the service is free!
CAREER PLANNING. RSG organizes and co-sponsors a Non-Academic
Job-Hunting Conference each year. Here graduate students receive
professional advice on job-hunting techniques and resume- and letter-
writing skills and meet with representatives of business, industry and
government to discuss career opportunities.
HOUSING. RSG established a Housing Office last summer which main-
tained up-to-date lists of available housing in the Ann Arbor area and
an effective roommate-matching service. The office also distributed
