The total number of students
enrolled in the University increased
again this year.
There are now 49,523 students
enrolled in the University, including
its Dearborn and Flint campuses,
according to a report compiled by the
Associated Press. That figure is up
331 students from last year.
One University official said
there are about 35,500 graduate and
undergraduate students on the Ann
The University's total enrol-
lment has continued to increase over
the last few years despite a nation-
wide decline in the number of
graduating high school students. One
reason for this is that applications to
the University have not decreased
over the same period.
"We have not really seen a
downturn in the number applicat-
ions," said Robert Holmes, assistant
vice president for academic affairs.
The University has the highest
enrollment of the 13 public colleges
and universities in the state, the
report said. Michigan State has the
second highest enrollment with more
than 42,000 students.
hiag shanty torn down
By STEPHEN GREGORY
One of two Diag shanties built by
the Free South Africa Coordinating
Committee was torn down over the
weekend, University Public Safety
Public Safety Officer John
Warming said the shanty was razed
sometime Saturday night and that his
office currently had no suspects in
Pam Madison, an FSACC
member and LSA junior, said the
destruction of the shanty is a n
indication of "a lot of racist violence
on campus." She said it also
indicates that people are still unaware
of the shanty's significance.
"I think it's important for people
to educate themselves about what's
going on - in South Africa. (The
shanty) reminds us of the conditions
people all over the world live under."
Among the shanty's boards and
steel support beams were a broken
radio, a banner which said "Casino,"
and posters from Sigma Nu and
Theta Chi fraternities.
Sigma Nu President Jim Doyle,
an LSA senior, said, "I am confident
that no one in our house was
involved and that no on is trying to
implicate us (in the incident)."
Doyle said Sigma Nu members
plastered posters all over the Diag
during fraternity rush three weeks ago
and that some one may have ripped
them down and thrown them in the
Eric Holt, a United Coalition
Against Racism member and
engineering senior who helped build
'the shanty last spring, said there was
a two-foot by two-foot hole on one
side of the shanty and said, "It's
possible someone could have just
shoved (the posters) in there."
Members of Theta Chi fraternity
could not be reached for comment.
Madison called on the University
administration and the Michigan
Student Assembly to publically
condemn the incident.
MSA President Ken Weine said
the assembly has condemned
"violent acts of racism" on camptis
in the past, but he said he couldn't
predict MSA's response to this
She also said she FSACC was
going to try to rebuild the shanty:
The first shanty, which went up:
in March 1986, and the second, built;
last winter, have been the targets of
several attacks. Last spring, students'
collected boards from the shanties in;
a scavenger hunt allegedly sponsored
by three engineering societies.

U' ranks 8th in college poii
By JAMES BRAY
The University graced the ranking of the nation's
top 10 colleges and universities at number eight, tied
with the University of Chicago, according to a poll of
college presidents nationwide.
Stanford University of California took :the pole
position at number one followed in order by Harvard,
Yale, Princeton, University of California at Berkeley,
Dartmouth, Duke, the University and University
Chicago tied for eighth place, and Brown.
The University and the University of California at
Berkeley were the only public universities to be ranked
in the top 10.
Keith Molin, Assistant to the Vice President and
Director of Capital Projects, said, "The rating is a
tremendous compliment to the University." Molin
attributes the ranking to "tremendous achievements in
the last few years." Among those achievements, Molin
mentioned new facilities, additions to the faculty, and
the quality of the student body.
The survey is produced biennially by the news-
magazine U.S. News and World Report; 1,329 college
presidents were surveyed this year with a 60 percent
response rate. Each president was asked to list the 10
schools which offer the best undergraduate education.
The colleges were divided into nine catagories according
to their classification by the Carnegie Foundation for
the Advancement of Teaching.
In 1983, the Universty ranked seventh in the survey,
citing the small school atmosphere provided by the
Residential College. The University fell from the ranks
of the top 10 in the 1985 survey, mentioned only as
noteworthy. The University of North Carolina at
Chapel Hill was the only school to fall from its top 10.
ranking in 1985, ousted by the University's return.
LSA junior Jennifer Loeb said,"It's pretty accurate
to be ranked in the top 10. As far as public
universities, this is probably the finest."
From the way people study here I can see it. But
from my own personal life I don't understand it," said
LSA junior Jamie Verrico.
