'Pen pals' strive
to bolster ranks

A new "pen pal" program is giving
the University's minority recruitment
efforts a more personal touch.
Under the direction of Monique
Washington, coordinator of minority
recruitment in the undergraduate ad-
missions office, two work-study studen-
ts are writing letters by hand to studen-
ts who are interested in enrolling at the
"I CAN ONLY hope that by providing
this personalized attention, students
will begin to feel that the University is a
human place.. . and that they can be a
part of the student life here," said
LSA Junior Maria Torres and
Millicent Newhouse, an LSA
sophomore, have written more than 100
letters to students, most of whom have
sent the University their college en-
trance test scores.
Torres and Newhouse, who are
minority students, introduce them-
selves in their handwritten letters and
tell how the letter recipients can con-
"I THINK minorities have this idea
that Michigan isn't for them. Having
students that are actually here talking
to them will help, instead of just talking
to a counselor," Newhouse said.
"It adds that personal touch," said
the women also greet minority
students who come to visit the Univer-
sity from Detroit high schools, and
Torres said that many of the students

to win a spot on the council, according
But losing presiden-
tial candidate Andrew Hartman and
vice presidential candidate Andrew
Sriro gave Berman and Wyman their
best wishes - with a warning. "We
congratulate Eric and his party on win-
ning and challenge them to follow
through on their promises, because you
better believe we'll be there next year,"
Sriro said yesterday.
Sriro said he believed the large
election turnout was "mostly due to
IGNITE's innovative campaigning,"
which included handing out popcorn to
potential voters and parking a poster-
covered car on the Diag.
However, many of the independent
candidates disagreed with that
assessment. "We like to think that we
made the election and that SAID
probably wouldn't have campaigned as
hard if we hadn't been out there on the
first day handing out flyers," said in-
dependent candidate Jim Rosenberg.
He and five other independents pooled
their resources to campaign together.
"I think we should all get on, as far as
we campaigned," said Larry Bottinick,
an independent who worked with
Rosenberg. "But elections don't always
go by how you campaign."
"The six joint independents ran an
excellent campaign, and I think any one
of them would make a good represen-
tative of the student body," Berman
Berman said he approved of
IGNITE's campaign gimmicks,
saying they were "good for publicity
and helped people realize that the elec-
tion was going on."

SINCE THEY began writing to
students in early October, Torres and
Newhouse have gotten responses to ap-
proximately one-quarter of the letters
they have written, Washington said.
Although the correspondence is bet-
ween two minority students, the
prospective students are interested in
more than minority affairs on campus.
The students usually have questions
about application procedures and areas
of study, which Torres and Newhouse
answer with the appropriate infor-
mation and a second letter.
The program is a new effort to in-
crease the University's 10.5 percent
minority enrollment. Figures released
earlier this month showed that, while
Asian enrollment increased this year,
black enrollment fell from 5.2 percent
to 4.9 percent, and Hispanic enrollment
As a follow-up on the pen-pal
program, Washington said the ad-
missions office will survey students
who received letters to see how many
actually applied to the University.
If the program is successful, "there's
no reason why we can't expand it to
other target groups who aren't
necessarily minorities but may be at
some disadvantage when they enroll,"
