Religion
remains a
constant
at college
By SUSAN GRANT
Amidst the many changes of
moving away from home, take com-
fort in the fact that some things
always remain constant.
Saturday and Sunday morning
religious services go on every week
offer spiritual guidance through the
muddle of student problems.
Many students are busy with their
studies and find little time for prac-
ticing religion, at least to the extent
that they observed at home in a
familiar setting.
But a student motivated to practice
his religion can find an appropriate
time and place.
And most area churches and
synagogues try to make their services
fit student needs. "Because we realize
our clientele are students, we make
the service appealing to them," said
Rabbi Aharon Goldstein, director of
the Chabad House, a Jewish student
center on Hill Street which holds
traditional services.
"We know that many students can-
not read Hebrew or follow the prayer
service, so we take time to announce
the page number and do several
prayers together (aloud)," he said.
Last year at the Lutheran Campus
Ministry at Lord of Light, the
Reverend Galen Hora had a friend
from Detroit play a saxophone ac-
companiment to the choir. He said the
experience was "very uplifting," and
hopes there will be a repeat perfor-
mance soon.
Although things are more lax at
many area services, the basics are
still the same. Hora said that com-
munion and reading and interpreting
the scriptures are not left out.
"We work hard on translating in-
clusive language. We have groups of
people who know Greek and Hebrew
who make sure that our translation of
the Bible is correct," he added.
In addition to religious services,
many ' religious centers have
speakers, films, and classes about a
variety of subjects in tune with
student concerns - like world hunger,
nuclear war, drugs, and social
pressure.
Chabad House offers classes that

range in difficulty from learning the
Hebrew alphabet to advanced Torah
reading, said Gavin Meyerowitz, an
LSA junior and Chabad House
congregation member.
In addition to regular services, the
Univerity Lutheran Chapel on
Washtenaw Avenue lets students use
the church lounges and recreation
room for studying and chatting, while
the Methodist First Church of Ann
Arbor on State Street, has a Wesley
Foundation to sponsor various ac-
tivities for students, "from prayer
groups to softball teams," said
Rachel Cooper, an administrative
assistant at the church.
And politics is not forbidden
territory either. Last year the First
Unitarian Universalist Church on
Washtenaw held a debate for the
mayoral contestants.
In addition, social gatherings

abound. The University Lutheran
Chapel has Sunday suppers every
other week, while Chabad House and
the Hillel Foundation have parties for
many of the Jewish holidays.
The Office of Ethics and Religion in
the Union is an alternative for people
who have religious interests but no af-
filiation.
"We sponsor speakers who discuss
social, ethical, and religious issues
and give students access to religious
groups on campus," said Bob Hauert,
the office director.
"For example, some students from
Bangladesh wanted a fundraising
drive started for victims of the
cyclone in India and we helped them,"
he added.
But most importantly, Cooper said,
the church is a way for people of all
ages to come together and find a
common ground.

In a hopping city like Ann Arbor, a
car may seem like a necessity at first,
abut most students survive without
* them. The key is knowing all the
available transportation alternatives.
For getting around campus, the
University's blue and silver North
Campus and Commuter Bus system is
convenient and free. But allow a little
extra time when taking a bus to class
because they have a habit of being
late.
COMMUTER buses mainly serve
central campus with routes between.
Crisler Arena and the Medical Center
from 7:10 a.m. to 2:15 a.m. on week-
days.
North Campus buses run the same
weekday hours, but serve the Central
Campus and North Campus areas.
On weekends, the commuter and
North Campus buses combine into one
line that begins its run at 7:26 a.m. on
Saturdays and 7:55 a.m. on Sundays.
Service stops at 2:15 a.m.

library to Oxford Housing and the hill
dorms, and then back to the library.
The bus does not provide door-to-door
service, but make several stops along
the route.
ALTHOUGH many of the buildings
at the University are not easily ac-
cessible to handicapped persons,
both the AATA and the University
provide transportation for the han-
dicapped.
Handicapped people can get special
identification cards through AATA,
which provides door-to-door service
all week at the regular 60-cent fare.
AATA buses are equipped with
special wheelchair lift equipment.
To get to Briarwood for shopping or
a movie, or to any place off-campus,
AATA buses are economical. A one-
way trip costs 60 cents. The catch is
that the buses stop running at 11 p.m.
on weekdays and 8 p.m. on weekends.
AATA also offers a special Sunday
