"You tell people till you're blue in the
face that you're a diamond in the rough,
and they look at you." She rolled her
eyes in mock disbelief. "If it weren't for
the opportunity (EONS), I don't think
I'd have gotten in. She (McKinney) its a
Godsend to me . . . It's nice to have
people respond well to the fact that you
can change your life."

Waterman says, "Here, you are given a
lot of time to reflect and plan the
future; there, there wasn't a lot of
future to plan." She tries to grasp the
changing mood of students, a sentiment
which has been labeled both "neo-
conservativism" and "me generation.."
"There was so much idealism in the
sixties and early seventies. Now people
are sadly realistic," she said.
When Waterman moved to Ann
Arbor, the only student of the family
was her husband, Mark, who will
complete his dental training this
spring. Remembering those times,
Waterman said, "I was isolated with
new babies. I had trouble getting out of
the house. I guess I saw my husband
going on in life, to dental school; I
really thought about returning to
school. It was scary," she said.
Returning to school, Waterman said,
involved compromising for both herself
and her husband.
"When I went back to school it was
hard for Mark to realize that some of
the responsibilities had to be shared. I
remember reading an article in
Women's Studies 240, 'The Politics of
Housework.' It's so true, you have to
negotiate the terms-we have lowered
our cleanliness standard," she laughed.
"He does lots of things now," she
continued, "dishes, laundry. We stay up

all night studying together." Waterman
feels that she and her husband have
grown from the experience of her
returning to school. "I think that's the
real test of a relationship, when you're
growing and they keep up with you. I'm
grateful it worked out as well as it did."
Waterman said her major concern
about returning to school though, was

'Here, you are given a lot of time to reflect and plan the
future; there, there wasn't a lot offuture to plan.'

The student said that many of her
professors, both men and women were
understanding about her situation and
understood the "variables in your life."
Hesitating to "s'ound sexist," she
acknowledged that "there's *4
difference in communicating to men
and women professors. Many women
are mothers and there's less explaining

not her husband, but the care of her
children. "The woman who takescare
of my kids is an exceptionally fine
person; she made it easy for me. If
there'd been no day care, I wouldn't
have gone to school."
She says that there is a problem with
"quality day care" in Ann Arbor. "The
University doesn't accommodate
working people very much at all ...
quality day care is hard to find and
expensive. In one place (run by the
Univesity), a reservation had to be
made a year in advance."

to do."
Now Waterman is working on her
honors thesis. Afteshe and her
husband graduate thissping, they will
move to Annapolis, Ma Iynd.
After taking a year off to spend some
time with her children, Waterman
hopes to go to graduate school in two
years.
"When -I was at Marymount, on4

said.

that if a student is under-qualified, he

Robin Jacoby, an assistant professor
of history, frankly admits her
prejudices about older women students.
"Often returning women are more ex-

and tend to be more appreciative," she
said. Jacoby added that she also sees a
