Adjusting to the rigors of a college
lifestyle can be difficult enough for
students from suburban Detroit. For
students from suburban Caracas, the
transition can be disastrous.
It's partly to help make the transition
as smooth as possible-as well as to
help foreign students derive the
maximum benefit from their stays in
this country-that the, University main-
tains the International Center.
FOR FOREIGN students, the
primary aim of the center is to assist
students in their dealings with the
federal immigration authorities,,ac-
cording to Jon Heise, the center's direc-
tor. The center also provides newly-
arrived foreign students with an orien-
tation program and with some coun-
seling services, he said.
But Heise also said both finances and
the program's philosophy limit the in-
volvement of the center in the everyday
lives of foreign students.
"Our ideological approach is that the
CHRIER International Center should participate
College only to the extent that seems absolutely
s to a necessary in the affairs of students,
private scholars, and faculty," Heise wrote in

Heise said, however, that the center
is still able to provide adequate support
services to University students.

relatively more mature, more
sophisticated type of student," said
Heise. "In fact, several students have

The Avery and Jule Hopwood
Awards in creative writing represent
the pinnacle of success for Michigan's
student literati. Such literary
heavyweights as Arthur Miller, John
Ciardi, Norman Rosten, X. J. Kennedy,
and Frank O'Hara started on the road
to writing success by winning Hopwood
awards when they were University
More than 65 Hopwood Award-
winning manuscripts have been
published, and many times the award
has led to highly successful careers in
writing for the winners. And if that isn't
enough to convince you to enter, each
contest includes thousands of dollars in
cash prizes to encourage young writers
to continue their trade.
WINNING THE HOPWOOD was
"very encouraging," said Ingrid Smith,
who received a 1973 award for fiction.
Until a creative writing teacher
suggested Smith enter her short story

ternationally famous writing awards.
But after she found out she had won,
Smith discovered "how much other
people value the Hopwoods," she said.

Smith's winning manuscript put her in

Some observers of the educational
scene say the most important factor
for a great university is its library. No
matter how many schools or depar-
tments a university can boast as being
ranked among the top in the nation,
the library remains the key.
That's because all those schools and
departments must rely on a library to
provide the resources for teaching
