He said as far as he is concerned the

B riarwood
approved by
City Council
Ann Arbor's City Council capped months of heated
debate last night in approving plans for the construction
of a multi-million dollar shopping center near the city
By a 6-4 vote with one abstention, the massive com-
plex was given final approval before an apparently evenly
divided group of nearly 300 people.
The council vote changes the zoning of over 100 acres
of vacant land near the junction of State St. and I-94. It
thus allows construction of the 800,000 sq. ft. center, to be
called Briarwood, to begin.
The center will include at T
least three large depart- l [e rafion
ment stores, and is ex-
pected to be one of the d]u h
largest centers of its kind dodge u h l

A GROUP OF INCOMING FRESHMEN here for summer orientation yesterday march to central cam-
pus for a guided tour (above). Later, they proceed towards Mason Hall for counseling and placement
tests (below).
Freshmen flock to 'U'
for summer orientation

The sound of 120 sleepy groans
greeted orientation leaders yes-
terday morning at Alice Lloyd
Hall as they attempted to arouse
groups of visiting freshmen at
6:30 a.m.
The freshmen, the first of an
estimated 480 new students
scheduled to visit the campus
each week during the summer,
will be getting their first view of
University life the hard way-
standing in lines, wearing name
tags and filling out about eight
forms a day.
In an attempt to test, counsel
and register the entire freshman
class, the University maintains
the summer orientation pro-
gram, which also seeks to accli-
mate the students to the cam-
pus in just three days.
Because they have much to
learn in a short time, the new

freshmen, living in Alice Lloyd
during their three day stay, are
purposely kept busy.
"The first day there's a meet-
ing, and a lot of forms to fill,
out, a tour of campus, and a
micro-lab. The next day there's
a lot of tests-reading speed and
accuracy, the OASIS test and
all the language tests and the
chemistry test. The day after
that they have to do the usual
registration routine - appoint-
ments with their counselors,
classification, scheduling and
registration," says Jeff Kaplan,
'73, an orientation leader.
In between all of these activi-
ties, the freshmen take time out
for a tour of the Undergraduate
Library, a discussion of contra-
ceptives at University Health
Service, and a meeting with Re-
serve Officer Training Corps

(ROTC) instructors at North
They can also receive infor-
mation about various campus
activities by going to the Union
ballroom, where booths are set
up to dispense information about
campus organizations.
Despite all of the hurry and
bustle, many freshmen seem to
be enjoying their first real ex-
perience as students at the Uni-
"Even though the program is
so structured-most of our time
during the day is spent accord-
ing to a schedule-I don't really
mind," comments one freshman
Says one freshman, "Every-
one warned me about dorm food,
so I went in expecting the worst.
You know, it really isn't that
