DORM RAISES 'FARM CROP'
S.udents train for RA iobs
By ANTHY PAPISTA
e In baseball, young aspiring players are sent to the minor
league's farm teams to gain practice and experience in the
dame. At Alice Lloyd Dormitory, aspiring resident advisors
are also sent to the minor leagues.
No, they don't want to be ball players. Instead, these
sophomores who are interested in becoming resident ad-
Visors prepare as student advisors.
WHAT IS THE difference between an SA and an RA? Not
much in terms of work and responsibility, according to Alice
Loyd's student advisor office.
Only 18 Pilot Program sophomores are eligible to become
student advisors. They undergo a complete training process
pefore fall classes begin and are responsible for 30 or 40
They handle a variety of dorm dilemmas such as noise
problems, roommate difficulties, and academic and social
problems. Unlike RAs, these students don't. receive free
oom and board.
ACCORDING TO DAVID GIVENS, an Alice Lloyd SA, the
job's voluntary status "keeps (it) pure" from people seeking
he position for monetary reasons.
SA privileges are limited to first room pick on the hall.
They also get free Pilot Program T-shirts and caps.
THESE STUDENTS recently received recognition from.
the University's housing department. This means that SAs
can apply early for RA positions in other dorms without
having to compete with the regular applicant pool.
SAs are a "farm crop" for potential RA jobs, said Kim
McIntyre, an SA
McIntyre and half of the currenSAs are seeking RAjobs.
JAMES MARSH, an SA who is applying for an RA position,
said that he has "enjoyed the position of working with
residents." However, he added that next year, his job will be
even more attractive because he'll get paid "for doing the
"I am a people-oriented person and feel that being an SA
has been very rewarding," McIntyre said. "Just directing
people to the best pizza place in Ann Arbor is appreciated by
She added that SAs and RAs make dorm life less lonely for
However, being an SA isn't always fun.
"SOME PEOPLE think we do nothing," said Cindy
Palmer, an SA.
And according to SA Brian Binder, it is especially difficult
for sophomores to "manage being a peer, counselor, and ad-
visor all at once."
Theoretically, student advisors are on duty at all times, but
unlike resident directors, resdient advisors, and resident
fellows, they are not obligated to hold specific dorm hours.
ACCORDING TO CLARE CORRY, an SA's duties are "to
help freshmen get settled in and facilitate, the transition to
college, to coordinate hall activities," and to behave as role
models for residents.
Most SAs share their hall responsibilities with RAs and
"The Pilot Program necessitates responsible sophomores
to serve as go-betweens for students and faculty," said Bill
Knox, an Alice Lloyd resident director.
"(SAs) don't always earn recognition for their work," said
John Scanlan, a resident fellow. He said the most successful
SA is one who can "combine his or her interest in the Pilot
Program with social and intellectual concerns."

. Quad bomb threat
By STEVE HERZ
and THOMAS HRACH
Some West Quad residents said last
night they were upset at not having
been told of a bomb threat in the dorm
early yesterday morning.
At approximately 2:30 a.m., an
unknown male phoned a West Quad
resident advisor and said the building
would be blown up in 20 minutes.
ACCORDING TO JOEL ALLEN,
supervisor of housing security, stan-
dard procedure for any bomb threat in
a residence hall dictates that all
residents must be notified of the threat.
The decision to evacuate is left up to
West Quad staff members began to
notify the residents of the threat but
several stopped when police and
security officers checked the building
and found no bomb.
According to Allan all residents
should have been notified immediately
that there had been a threat.
"I did advise all of my residents to
leave the building," said Marc Wer-
nick, an Adams House RA.
But other RAs said they had not
notified all of the residents on their
halls when the 20-minutes had passed
and security officials had concluded the
threat. was a hoax. For these two
reasons they said they decided against
waking the rest of their residents.
Building Director Alan Levy said he
was not informed of the threat until he
came into work yesterday morning. He
added that he should have been called.
Many West Quad residents were
irritated by the lack of warning in some
halls. Heidi Harpowiski, an LSA
sophomore, said she definitely would
have evacuated the building if she had
"I'm pissed off," said Robin Gold-
stein, an LSA freshwoman. "I would've
slept anywhere but here."
"I THINK the entire quad should
have been evacuated," added Jim
Doyle, an LSA freshman.
"If the staff did their job properly,
they would have notified all the residen-
ts," said Allan. "But all I've heard from
West Quad is that the staff did a good
In response to a rash of bomb threats
at Stockwell dormitory two years ago,
housing officials decided not to
evacuate dorms when threats are
received. At the time they said the new
policy would reduce bomb threats
because the person making the threat
would'see no visibile effects.
Instead dorm employees are sup-
posed to alert each resident to the
situation and leave the decision up to

SPECIALIZING ON international
relations and strategic studies, Dina
Zarren is well-prepared to take on her
role as Secretary of State.
"I have been reading literature on
arms control, past arms control, and
