The word "alumni" conjures up
images of maize and blue clad rah-rah
Michigan fans raving about how life
was when they were undergraduates.
Maybe so, but alumni do a lot more
than cheer on football Saturdays, said
Bob Forman, executive director of the
University Alumni Association. Alum-
ni play an increasingly important role
in the support of the University, For-
For example, he added, 50 percent of
the buildings on campus came from
alumni gifts to their alma mater.
AND NOW ALUMNI will have a
campus building to call their own.
The half-completed structure on the
corner of Fletcher and Washington
streets is the new alumni center. The
facility will have meeting rooms and of-
fice space and will be used for both
alumni and student functions.
"We feedI that the building is impor-
tant as a physcial recognition of alumni
on campus," said Forman.
The new alumni center was designed
by architect Hugh Jacobson, an inter-
nationally renowned architect from the
Georgetown area of Washipgton, D.C.
Forman said Jacobson has designed
several buildings at other college cam-
puses blending together old and new
"It was a challenge totry to design a
building to be a good neighbor with the
surrounding buildings - the League,
Rackham and Hill Auditorium," said
Construction on the building began
last winter and is expected to be com-
pleted in May 1982.
Even though the building seems
large, it has only about 18,000 square
feet. The principal room is a large
meeting room that can be divided into
four small rooms, each with a fireplace.
The building's interior color scheme
will be maize and blue. Dark blue wall
carpeting will cover the two-story high
walls and a blue and gold motif will
decorate the carpeting. The Univer-
sity's interior decoration office
designed the alumni center interior.'
Forman noted that in addition to ser-
ving alumni, the center also will serve
"We are eager that it will be used by
students," he said. "In fact, one of the>:
reasons for its unusual shape was to
maintain the pathway which students ,-,
use to get from Hill Auditorium toward
Power Center. We want students to*
know there is an alumni center - to.;
have them feel involved with the:;

An award-winning documentary Heart Cry, will be shown to interested
members of the public at Washtenaw Community College at 9 and 10 a.m. in
Lecture Hall 3 of the College's Liberal Arts and Sciences Building. There is
no charge. The film, produced by World Relief, depicts the reasons why the
Indochinese have fled their countries. Filmed in Thailand and Cambodia, it
shows living conditions within the refugee camps, the distribution of food
and the medical personnel and the problems they must cope with in the
camps. It will be presented and discussed by Carol O'Dell, a registered nur-
se, who spent eight months working in a refugee camp in the Philippines as a
public health nurse. The film is sponsored by the Indochinese Education
