By PETE WILLIAMS
For aspiring artists and engineers, it
is inevitable. For other students it is
merely an escape from their daily
academic routines. For still others, it is
the way home every night after classes.
The two-mile journey by bus to North
It was way back in December 1949,
when the regents decided the farmland
north of the Huron River would be a
logical direction for the inevitable ex-
pansion of the University. Since that
time, North Campus has become the
stomping grounds for countless
musicians, artists, engineers, and ar-
chitects as well as a winter home for
about 7000 graduate and undergraduate
students in University housing.
The University's largest housing unit,
with a capacity of 1246 fun-loving male
and female undergraduates, is located
on North Campus, this multi-winged
monster is Bursley. It is a popular place
for a large population of the incoming
freshman class to get stuck.
But don't despair, the ride is free and
the buses run frequently between the
two campuses - except on weekends
when they are scheduled at half hour in-
BURSLEY is not the only alternative
for students interested in a residence up
north. Baits housing, located right next
door to Bursley, houses 1152 un-
dergraduate and graduate students in a
more apartment-like atmosphere. Nor-
thwood apartments, designed for
married students and students with
families, has about 5000 tennants.
According to Director of Research for
the Housing Office Edward Salowitz,
the facilities are 40 to 45 percent
cheaper for families than comparable
apartments and houses in the area.
Salowitz said that the University built
the family housing on North Campus
because the wide open spaces and quiet
environment fostered in the area is
more conducive to family living than
that of bustling, crowded Central Cam-
pus, located inthecenter of Ann Arbor.
HE ALSO SAID economically, North
Campus is a desirable location. "To try
to build on Central Campus would cost
you an arm and a leg," Salowitz said.
And you can't beat the bus fare home.

A stark metal sculpture rests outside of the Art and Architecture Building on
North Campus. Inside the building, students can learn the art of painting,
sculpture, pottery, and architecture.
But the 35-year-oldicampus offers
more than a place to live that is off the
beatenpath. It is also the location of
several of the University's
technological laboratories. These in-
cluding the Pheonix laboratory, a
nuclear reactor,han automotive lab, the
space research facility, and various
other engineering and science research
The Institute of Science and
Technology, also on North Campus,
coordinates research activities bet-
ween University departments and
promotes research of specific interest
to the University, the Federal Gover-
nment, and the private sector.
"THE BENTLEY Library is another
unique feature of North Campus, and
the University's library system. Accor-
ding to Mary Jo Pugh, an archivist, the
library serves two basic purposes. Fir-
st, it is the archives of the University,
containing such off-beat items as old
course catalogues, student notes,
student diaries, and documents from all
corners of the campus.
The Gerald R. Ford Library, af-
filiated with the federal government
but on University land, is another ar-
chive library located on North Campus.
This library houses documents, letters
and diaries from former President
Ford, a University alumnus, and others
involved in his presidential ad-
ministration and throughout his career.
The Ford Library of course, also has
a few documents from the former
president's career as a center in the
football team while at the University.
"Bascially, the library is an ar-
chive," Pugh said. "All of these
materials are unique because there is
only one copy of everything here."
Secondly, the Bently also serves .as
the keeper of the Michigan Historical
Collection, a catalogued group of items
of historical significance to the State of
Interesting and otherwise
unavailable items in this collection in- i
clude the papers from the state's
governors and old legislative documen-

DURING THE short six-year term of
the next ptresident, Erastus Haven ac-
cepted two black students in 1868.
Although it was shortly after the Civil
War, no disruption occurred at the 4
University. The complete opposite
awaited another minority entry two
When"Henry Frieze became interim
president in 1869, he also made Univer-
sity history through the virtue of a
single admission. In 1870, Madelon
Stockwell became the first woman
enrolled in the University. Stockwell
Hall dormitory is named after her.
When Stockwell attended classes, the
male students pretended that she did
not exist. When they did notice her, they a
hooted her and called her names.
The University of Michigan became
the largest university in the country
during James Angell's 38-year term as
president. During the Angell years
which began in 1871, the University ex-
panded in student enrollment,
prestigious faculty members, and 50
campus buildings. The Michigan Union
was one of these buildings constructed
late in Angell's term. It helped students 4
meet without having to attend classes
IN THE EARLY years of his term,
Angell knew many of the students by
first name basis. He and his wife
frequently invited students to the
President's House for a snack. Mrs.
Angell once even made chicken soup for
a student who was sick.
Angell gained the reputation as the
perfect university president during his
