Admissions head leaves post

By DAVID WEBSTER
When Clifford Sjogren, the University's director of
undergraduate admissions, leaves his position on July
1, 1988, he will leave behind a department facing some
important problems.
Sjogren, who has held the top admissions post since
1973, said he is resigning "to pursue other interests in
the area of admissions" but would not elaborate on his
future plans. James Duderstadt, University provost and
vice president for academic affairs, credits Sjogren with
leading the admissions office through a period of
change.
"(Sjogren's) successor is going to be faced with
some very challenging issues," said Keith Molin,
director of University communications. "The whole
process of college admissions is changing."
The first problem facing Sjogren's successor will be
a decline in the number of college-age students, both in
Michigan and nationwide. This decrease in eligible
students is expected to continue for at least five more
years, according to Robert Holmes, assistant vice pres-
ident for academic affairs.
Holmes said Sjogren has been successful in at-
tracting quality students to the University despite the

shrinking pool of eligible students. This year's first-
year class has "the highest academic credentials of any
incoming freshman class in the history of admissions
at the University," Holmes said.
But, because there will be fewer high school
graduates in the coming years, Sjogren's successor will
be faced with an increasing problem. In order to
maintain the University's high academic standards, the
new director will have to more actively compete with
other colleges for top notch students.
Another problem facing the new director will be the
University's mix of in- and out-of-state students. The
University has been under pressure from the state
legislature to decrease its out-of-state enrollment.
Holmes said the University has been admitting "a
somewhat increased percentage of in-state students."
But he also said the number of out-of-state applicants
has "increased markedly."
If the number of qualified applicants graduating from
Michigan high schools continues to decrease, the
University may risk its high academic reputation in
order to admit more in-state students. The alternative
would be to admit more out-of-state students to
compensate for the decrease in in-state applicants.

Local gr
By JEFF ARCHER
"Recycling" may seem like a
buzzword from the 70s, but it is
alive and well in Ann Arbor where
reused newspapers save nearly
30,000 trees a year.
For several years, the city has
been at the forefront of the state's
recycling efforts, this year receiving
an award from the Michigan
Recycling Coalition.
The recycling effort, called Re-
cycle Ann Arbor, has been organized
as part of the Ecology Center of Ann
Arbor, a non-profit organization
founded in 1970, which strives to
protect the environment.
ORIGINALLY, the recycling
organization was formed and run
solely by volunteers, but in 1981
the group merged with the Ecology
Center and the combined effort began
to receive funding from the city.

As an example of this, Gonzalez
pointed to a lack volunteers and
attendants for programs sponsored by
MSS like dances and guest lecturers.
Gonzalez attributes low turn-outs
to these events to academic pressures.
"(Hispanic students) want to excel so
much they overlook things."
In order to increase Hispanic unity
on campus, Gonzalez said SALSA
will hold a mass meeting sometime
next week to recruit new members.
She said the group also plans to
begin support services for new
Hispanic students and to initiate a
dialogue with the admissions depart-
ment officials on how to increase
Hispanic representation on campus.
Hispanics make up two percent of
the University's total student body.
But even SALSA's efforts,
Gonzalez feels that any move toward
unity must come from individual
Hispanic students. She said they
should take the initiative to meet
other Hispanics on campus.
"I know of Hispanic students who

collects newspapers, glass, tin,
aluminum, and motor oil from curb-
sides monthly. The collection serves
all of the city's 20,000 single family
residences.
The center also manages a per-
manent recycling station at at 2050
S. Industrial Highway where res-
idents may drop off materials.
Although generally satisfied with
the success of Ann Arbor's "state of
the art recycling organization," Jeryl
Davis, the project's promoter at the
Ecology Center, wishes the that the
University would take a larger part
in local recycling efforts. The Uni-
versity does not currently sponsor
any recycling plans.
THE PROBLEM with such an
effort at the University, Davis
explains, is that Recycle Ann Arbor
cannot handle the load. She would
like to see students run a recycling
effort at the University, but says this

is difficult to organize because a
student-run project must be re-
established each year.
Third-year Natural Resource
student Dianne Sotak is trying to
reorganize the school's Recycling
Club. The club will be limited in its
initial scope, but hopes to be a pilot
for recycling efforts at the Univer-
sity. The first meeting of the Re-
cycling Club is planned for October
5.
CURRENTLY Recycle Ann
Arbor is the sole large-scale
recycling organization in the city.
Even without giving curb-side
collection service to the University
or Ann Arbor's multi-family
residences, Recycle Ann Arbor still
collects approximately 2,500 tons of
recyclable material yearly.
The effect of this is to
significantly cut back the depletion
of the city's available land fill areas,

which are expensive to maintain. Per
ton, the recycling of the materials
costs less than what the maintenance
of it in a landfill would be.
Aside from the economic ad-
vantage, the efforts of Recycle Ann
Arbor have had significant en-
vironmental impacts. The yearly
tonnage of collected material helps
slow the depletion of natural re-
sources. The 2,500 tons collected
results in saving nearly 30,000 trees,
as well as reducing oil and water
wastage. Also, nearly 50,000 tons of
air pollutants are avoided by the
city's efforts.
Although the truck drivers and toe
administrative personnel of the Eco-
logy Center of Ann Arbor are paid
by the city, much of the recycling
work is done by volunteers,,who
assist both in the collection of the
materials and in the distribution of
information about recycling.

cept in class," she said.
Martinez feels that cultural di-
versity among Hispanics themselves
is a major barrier to unity. She said
Hispanics can be broken down into
Mexicans, Puerto Ricans, Cubans,
and many other subdivision, each
with its own background and values.
"We have more diversity in our
group than others."
Martinez also said the existence of
many small exclusive groups like the
Latin American, Native American
Medical Association and the Hispanic
Law Student Association also hinder
unity. "If we could center more a-
round ethnicity and culture than
around careers, we'd be more uni-
fied."
Martinez also said that the various
Hispanic groups have pulled together
in past to achieve common goals.
She said three years ago Hispanic
groups joined forces CHHE and
worked for the creation of the Latino
Studies Department.
Hernandez said that CHHE is still

kgree on we{
working on objectives beneficial to
Hispanic students. She said CHHE's
role is to identify the prdblems that
exist in the Hispanic community and
to determine what can be done to
address them.
