Students lament long
lines for coursepacks

The beginning of the school year
doesn't only mean the return of
football games and homework. It
also means having to stand in long
lines. It seems like wherever you
turn, there are always 20 people
standing in front of you.
Especially when you're trying to
buy a course pack.
Irritated students complain about
the long wait. "I think it is really
stupid to have two Kinko's; one
overloaded with business and the
other is not," said Art History
sophomore Claudia Work, as she
stood at the top of the stairs just
outside the copier at 540 E. Liberty
St.. Behind her, the line stretched
into the street. Meanwhile, only
about four customers waited in
Kinko's 1220 South University
Street store.
Reputation and location deter-

mine why one copier is crowded
while others are not, say store man-
agers and University professors. In
fact, many of the area's printing es-
tablishments rely on past record to
attract prospective customers.
"Kinko's may be a little more
expensive, but it is worth it. I've
been quite satisfied," said Assistant
Professor of Chemistry Robert
Sharp. He cited as pluses the store's
convenient location and 24-hour ser-
The price of a course pack de-
pends on how professors brought in
the originals. The sooner the order is
placed, especially before Labor Day,
the cheaper the pack, said store
managers. Most copiers offer incen-
tives for professors to get their orig-
inals in early and avoid late and ex-
pensive course packs for their stu-

minority faculty and administra-
tors to the University.
To receive a part of the fund,
departments must present the
credentials of potential faculty or
administration members to the
Office of Academic Affairs. Swain
said the office has not yet received
any formal applications.
SWAIN also said that money
has been allocated to the Center for
Afro-American Studies to fill two
post-doctoral positions.
The plan's fifth point is tc
iincorporate affirmative action goals
into yearly departmental performance
reports. Vice President for Academic
Affairs and Provost James Duderstadt

has spoken with various department
heads about setting up affirmative
action goals, Moody said.
Moody said that performance.
reports to be released next year will
evaluate the success of each
department's goals.
On the final point - establishing
a presidential advisory committee on
racism - Moody said that
University President Harold Shapiro
has already begun to establish it.
Robin Jacoby, an assistant to
Duderstadt, said that her office has
received nominations from staff and
faculty members and is currently
awaiting student nominations from
the Michigan Student Assembly.

Jacoby said she hopes the
committee's first meeting will take
place in October, and that the
committee will meet each month.

"There is not really room in the

So, wait patiently and hope that
