Design your own major
By NANCY DOLINKO
When Anne Hirsch became discouraged with her
courses in psychology, she decided to design her own
major in organizational behavior.
Hirsch, an LSA junior, was one of 76 students whose
independent concentration proposal was accepted
last year. She says she made the right decision. "I
personally wanted something more tailored to me,
that reflected my goals, something no one else can
do" Hirsch said.
Because a growing number of students were in-
terested in non-traditional majors, the University
decided to help people interested in designing their
own concentrations. The Independent Concentration
Program (ICP) began in 1969.
ICP ranks about 10th in popularity among the 85
degree options the University offers, according to the
senior auditing office.
Students who select an ICP work with a couselor to
create a special program which they are interested
ALL ICP programs must meet the LSA English
composition, foreign language distribution, and
junior-senior writing requirements, said Prof. Liina
Wallin, who heads the program.
After consulting a counselor, students present their
proposals to the ICP committee which meets once a
month. The committee then decides whether or not to
accept the proposal. If it is rejected, the student can
redesign the proposal and resubmit it.
"I liked the freedom and flexibility that an ICP
gave me," said Sydnei Lippman, an LSA senior who
is pursuing an ICP in business marketing.
Lippman said she decided on an ICP after being
denied entrance into business school. She said she
chose it because she still wanted to pursue a Master
of Business Administration degree.
"I FOUND THAT people were impressed with my
creativity and drive," she said. Lippman said she
spoke with professionals in the business field to
determine the marketability of her degree.
However, she added that the University would
make more people aware of the ICP. "The Univer-
sity needs to promote the idea more. Most people
don't know what an ICP is," she said.
Stacie Schiff, an LSA junior and Anglo-American
Legal Studies major, is one of the newest students to
have an ICP approved.
"I became discouraged as a communications
major when several courses were cut over the sum-
mer," she said. "I looked at what courses were of-
fered having to do with law and legal thinking. From
this, I formed a program that covered all of this. I
am interested in law and wondered what would be
most helpful-what could I get the most out of," she
"I am ecstatic about this. I can take from this
University what I want, It's really exciting," she

By DOV COHEN
You can usually catch some pretty
weird people on the streets of Ann Ar-
bor, and yesterday was no exception.
But theyweren't the ordinary group
of zanies that roam the city's streets,
they were University students.
THEY traded in their No Code but-
tons, Mondale-Ferraro stickers, and
Go-Blue T-shirts for greasepaint,
makeup, and second-hand clothes.
Down at East Quad, you could check
out the locals running around like
Jesus, Iggy Pop, and a "slightly soiled"
"He's got a large hole in him so we
don't know if anyone will use him," said
Andrew Roberts, an East Quad resident.
"IT'S NO secret that East Quad
people tend to be odd. So Halloween is
our time to glory in it," Roberts said.
A student dressed as Iggy was decked
out in classic androgynous style.
His heavily made-up face, his golden
left earring, and the glitter in his hair
reeked of ambiguity. His tight
stockings, his bare chest, and his
leather jacket added another dimen-
David Miller, aMarkley resident who
attended the East Quad party, came
dressed with a bandana and several
chains around his neck. His only
problem was that he said he was a
"biker in the '60s or a (University)
Professor of Mathematics."
East Quad wasn't the only dorm
celebrating Halloween. At Mary
Markley dormitory, a student
presumably representing the En-
trepeneur's Club came dressed as Joel
from Risky Business.
Wearing his sunglasses, sports
jacket, and dragging on an unlight
cigarette, Joel, who refused to reveal
his real identity, went around offering
to "help out" his friends. Why did the
student dress as Joel? Sometimes you
just got to say what the fuck," he said.
Shortly thereafter a "tourist" in a
Hawaiian shirtsbumped into everyone
in sight and asked, "Can you tell me
where the American Consulate is in
Boyer to defend liberal
arts in campus address

inform the LSA-SG, who went ahead
and spent over $2000 of sponsors' money
to publicize the speech.
"WE SIGNED a written agreement to
have Boyer appear on Oct. 30 back in
May," Philipsborn said. "There is a
great University interest in having
Boyer speak, as many groups have
sponsored his appearance, so we were
naturally upset when we found out the
event was being rescheduled. We only
found out a week before the event that it
was being rescheduled."
Berman said the University ad-
ministration found out about the
problem, and contacted Boyer, a good
friend of University President Harold
Shapiro, and set up the time of 4 p.m. on
"Boyer decided to come out of loyalty
to the University community," said
Berman, "He had no idea of the
problems we had been going through."
MUCK, UNAWARE of the new plans,
said that communication problems
caused the confusion over Boyer's ap-
"I have had no facts to work with. I
am very frustrated with the situation,
because I have had no notice of the
problems Eric Berman is facing. I
really had no idea of the importance of
(Boyer's) appearance to the University
Boyer will speak on "The Future of
American Education and the Role of
Liberal Arts" Tuesday in theMichigan
Union ballroom. Boyer holds honorary
degrees from 48 U.S. colleges and
universities and has implemented
numerous education reforms.
Among the programs credited to
Boyer are the 4-1-4 academic calendar,
in which a short interim semester is of-
fered between the two regular terms,
and a review of professors' teaching
methods based on student and ad-
"The University is looking forward to
Boyer speaking in favor of the liberal
arts after they have come under such
criticism in recent years," Philipsborn
Boyer's speech comes right on the
heels of last week's statement by
Secretary of Education T.H. Bell that
"American higher education has the
sniffles" and that only half of the
students now in college will ever attain
their educational goals.
People here hope Boyer will dispel
the bad prognosis that liberal arts have
received, Philipsborn said.
