A housing: Variety of lifestyles
brightens otherwise dim picture

By PAMELA KRAMER
Ann Arbor is certainly not the
Fantasy Island of students' housing
dreams, but the variety of lifestyles
available here keeps the local
housing market from being a full-
fledged nightmare.
There's something for (almost)
everyone: Dormitories offer a life of
convenience and social activity,
while students will find a more
private atmosphere with "real
world" responsibilities in apartmen-
ts and houses.
MEMBERS OF the Greek system
say fraternities and sororities offer
a cross between a dorm and an apar-
tment. Or, students may choose to

experience the more unconventional
life of shared rights and respon-
sibilities in the area co-ops.
The following analysistmay help
students find a niche in the limited
Ann Arbor market.
Dormitories
"The main drawbacks to living in
a dorm are probably the in-
stitutionalized lifestyle-the routine
from which there is no extrication,
and the noise," said LSA sophomore
Dave Paton, a second year resident
of East Quad.
But dormitories, where about one-
third of the University's students
live, offer definite advantages, as

well, he said.
"FOR PEOPLE who want that
receptive social atmosphere when
they get here, dorms are great. And
the convenience is also a big attrac-
tion," Paton added.
Students living in dorms pay a
high price for the convenience.
Residence Hall, room and board
rates per student per month next
year are: Single, $338; double, $285;
triple suite, $285; triple, $251;
economy double, $241; and economy
triple, $225.
"It's important to consider
everything that's included in those
rates," said Ed Salowitz, director of
research and development for the

housing office.
TELEPHONE service charges,
electricity, and heating are all
covered by dorm room and board
bills. Students living in dorms also
have access to a library and inex-
pensive laundry facilities inside the
building.
Dorm residents don't have to
worry about finding someone to
sublet their rooms during the sum-
mer Salowitz added. And, often most
important, they don't have to do
their own grocery shopping or
cooking, he said.
Students must decide whether
these conveniences, especially their
time-saving value, are worth the
cost, Salowitz said.
Apartments and houses
After living in a dorm for a year,
most students choose to enter the
Twilight Zone existence of finding an
apartment or house off campus.
There is a certain black humor
present when thousands of people
compete to pay exhorbitant rents for
considerably less-than-utopic living
conditions.
But off-campus life has positive
points, as well.
"I APPRECIATE the ability to
decide my own menu," said
Engineering sophomore Darrell
Davey, who lives in a six-bedroom
house. "I can look forward to meals
instead of having to fear for my life
(at dorm dining halls), and shopping
is a real joy. I'm a coupon shopper,"
he confided. "That helps. You know,
we get the big bucket of Shedd's
(peanut butter)."

fire fe
By NANCY BILYEAU
Michigan State University's College,
of Nursing, school of social work, and
three other academic units are
recommended for future elimination to
head off MSU's fiscal crisis, officials
announced yesterday.
The colleges may begin to be phased
out within the next three years, officials
said.
The College of Urban Development, a
natural-sciences college and a social
sciences college are the other units
slated for removal by MSU President
Cecil Mackey's Select Advisory Com-
mittee as part of the school's $7 million
budget-slashing plan.
SOURCES SAID Mackey himself ap-
proved the phase-out plans yesterday,
-which must be voted on by MSU's
Board of Trustees later this month
before the eliminations become official.
"In our economic times, they (the
five units) don't have the mature fun-
ding needed," said an MSU ad-
ministrator who asked not to be named.
Between 70 and 100 tenured, and as
- many-as 60,non-tenuredfaculty mem-
bers could lose their jobs if the units are
phased out, officials said.
THE MSU College of Nursing, the
second largest of its kind in Michigan,
has approximately 50 faculty and
clerical workers and 684 students, said
Nursing School Assistant Dean Barb
Given.
The nursing school was targeted for

acult
elimination because of the increasing
cost of administration, the lack of an
on-campus hospital, and the
availability of other nursing programs
in the state, a select committee
spokesperson said.
"They think the nursing school is
peripheral and non-unique," said
Given, who cited the nursing school's

ses do is take tem

School administrators said they were
shocked and worried over MSU's ac-
tions.
"It's quite a surprise," University
Nuring School Assistant Dean Norma
Marshall said. "They have such a
strong school."
A decrease in the number of
graduating nurses, on top of the
existing shortage, will mean low-

'Regents OK
defense
"industry
investments

By BARRY WITT
Without a word of discussion of the propriety of in-
vesting in defense industries, the Board of Regents
unanimously approved Feb. 20 the addition of five
weapons manufacturing companies to the Univer-
sity's master list of common stocks.
The Regents, who listened to protesters argue the
day before that such investments were "morally
wrong," passed the additions as one part of the an-
nual Report of Investments.
THE ACTION MEANS the Loral Corporation, San-
ders Associates, General Dynamics Corporation,
McDonnel Corporation, and Northrop Corporation
are among the more than 200 companies open to the
University's financial office for investment.
Regent Deane Baker (R-Ann Arbor) explained
yesterday the Board did not discuss the previous

day's arguments because all the members were in
agreement that investments in these companies were
appropriate. Regent Sarah Power (D-Ann Arbor),
who was absent from Thursday's meeting, abstained
from voting on the report.i
In other action, the Regents approved a revision in
the Replacement Hospital Project that will scale
down original plans in order to stay within the ap-
proved $210 million budget.
Project Administrators will return to the Board in
the next few months for approval of each stage of the
proposal. Construction is scheduled to begin on Oct. 1,
according to University Presfdent Harold Shapiro.
Shapiro said the University and the state are still in
the process of working out the financing of the
project. Shapiro said he hopes to have the financing
finalized by June.

Two straight weekends without food
service last month ignited rumors at
Betsey Barbour residence hall that the
University's budget cutting ax was
poised to chop up the dormitory's meal
program.
Six times during February the truck
transporting food from West Quad kit-
ches to the Barbour dining hall broke
down due to the vehicle's faulty lift
system.
RESIDENTS OF THE all-female
dorm were complaining that the erratic
food service was in violation of their
meal contracts, because each break-
down forced students to make a three-
minute trek to the West Quad dining
hall for their meals.
It's an "inconvenience," Barbour

resident Jean Schwitzer said.
However, the contract states that
each student is entitled to receive "13
meals-seven dinners-six lunches," and
makes no stipulation as to where the
meals must be served.
Over mid-winter break, the truck's
hydraulic lift system was repaired in
Detroit, according to West Quad Food
Manager Ronald Yonkoski. "I don't an-
ticipate any more problems," he said.
Yonkoski explained that there is only
one truck designed to haul the cooked
food from West Quad to Barbour. If a
problem occurs, the food manager calls
University Transportation Services
located near Crisler Arena for another
vehicle. Unfortunately, he added,
breakdowns generally occur when all
the food is almost on the truck, forcing
additional time delays.

So you feel like your efforts are going unnoticed? No one
appreciates you? Well, nominate yourself (or talk someone
into nominating you) for this year's Student Achievement
Awards. The Awards, which were re-established in 1980 to
recognize students for outstanding achievement in extra-
curricular activities, will be presented in mid-April. Any
undergraduate or graduate student enrolled during the
1980-81 academic years, who has made an outstanding con-
tribution to an activity, organization, or project which

And that's exactly what he's going to do in honor of his
