we already had the student support,"
she said.
PIRGIM spent more than $1,000
plastering colorful campaign posters
all over campus that listed student
leaders and faculty members who
endorsed the group.
She said many first-year students
- unaware that students voted to
fund PIRGIM by a 4,330 to 1,864
margin in last spring's MSA elec-
tions - probably were uninformed
about PIRGIM's past accomplish-
ments. "They only got the message
of the opposition," she said, refer-
ring to the petition drive that put the
anti-PIRGIM referendum on the bal-
lot.

By SHARON OSTER
Recent anti-Indian incidents -
such as the "Kill All Indians" orga-
nization thatrecently developed in
Bloomfield Hills' Country Day
School and the "dot-busters" anti-In-
dian terrorists in Jersey City -
sparked campus Indian-American
students to unite and overcome prej-
udices.
Sponsored by the University of
Michigan Asian Students Coalition
(UMASC) and the Indian American
Student Association (IASA), about
50 students shared sentiments on
anti-Indian prejudice and formed a
support group at the Michigan
League last night.
Six Indian-American students led
the workshop which dealt with such
issues as Indian identity, assimila-
tion into American culture, retention
of Indian heritage, and pressures as-
sociated with the "model minority"

myth.
This myth, said second year Inte-
flex student and IASA President
Sanjay Gupta, deems Indians "over-
achieving, brilliant, and rich." Stu-
dents agreed that this stereotype
places pressure on Indian students to
live up to unnecessary expectations.
Said first year graduate student Rad-
hika Sharma, "we have to work to-
ward a more progressive 'and
supportive community" to overcome
this.

prej'udice
Students discussed apathy and
aloofness they often felt among each
other. LSA sophomore Sujit Sharma
said the workshop helped "ease the
friction" and reduce barriers between
Indian-American students.
A dinner gathering will be held
this Sunday at 7 p.m. at the Trotter,
House, and IASA is sponsoring a,
semi-formal next Friday at 8:30
p.m. in the Pendleton Room of the
Michigan Union. Both are open to
all.
