THE

MAGIC

OF

MIRL YN

,BY JOHN MCCAFFREY
: There may be an alternative for
ttudents who are tired of trudging
tthrough the same old Diag every
term.
' jIn fact, to receive credit for Uni-
x=versity classes, students don't have
rto stay in Ann Arbor. They can
,travel around the country, or even
raround the world, by participating in
,the University's alternative study
,programs.
LSA sophomore Carolyn Kraft,
who traveled to New England last
.-year with the New England Litera-
iture Program, said, "It was abso-
lutely the most incredible experience
of my life. We went canoeing, we
,,,went hiking... We ate a lot of lentil
-beans."
KRAFT SAID she attended 11
I classes during about four nine-day
G"weeks" of the program, for which
.she received eight credits.
University Director of Admis-
S'sions Donald Swain said students
-can participate in several kinds of
alternative study programs. LSA has
four programs for students interested
in traveling within the United
States.
These programs include the New
AHampshire Poetry Program, the
Persian Consortium - which alter-
nates yearly between Michigan,
~Columbia, Harvard, New York,
Princeton, and Pennsylvania univer-
sities - the Geological Sciences
Department's Camp Davis, and the
'New England Literature Program.
THESE PROGRAMS, which
are coordinated by individual
-University departments run about six
-weeks, have guaranteed credit trans-
fer, and have received great reviews
:from student participants, Swain
;said.
Guaranteed credit means the Uni-
iversity will give participants class
icredit if they perform up to its stan-
rd
The University also has several
Summer internship programs,

including the Public Service Intern-
ship Program and the Business In-
ternship Program. These programs
usually offer pay, or just resume
material, rather than credit. PSIP can
station participants as close as
Lansing or as far as Washington,
D.C.
"STUDENTS LOVE it," said
Ane Richter, associate director of the
Career Planning and Placement Of-
fice. "It's a fascinating program be-
cause you really get immersed. There
is room for students of all different
backgrounds." The office once set up
an art student with a summer job
working for the Council for the Arts
in Washington, Richter said.
. The BIP is less centrally located.
It is more intense during the year
because students must train to work
for companies as full-time employ-
ees, Richter said. Students meet
twice a week during the school year,
but afterwards the program can send
themto any city in the country to
work.
IN ADDITION to the domestic
programs, several University de-
partments run spring-summer Study
Abroad Programs. There are 11 dif-
ferent programs stationed at foreign
universities and taught by University
professors. Such programs guarantee
University credit-hours.
Guy Mermier, a professor in the
Tours program, said, "You get used
to it after a while. You will learn
new things and new standards of liv-
ing."
Additionally, the University's In-
ternational Center, on the ground
floor of West Quad, sponsors 17
different year-long programs in for-
eign countries.
AND IF these options seem too
limited, the Overseas Opportunities
Office, located in the International
Center lounge, is available to help.
The office releases information about
similar programs in colleges around
the country.

It's finally here and we call it MIRLYN. The
University of Michigan's new online catalog.
MIRLYN is not a hard system to learn. In fact,
it's deceptively simple. But like any new system,
it takes some getting used to.
That's why this fall the U-M Library is offering
campus-wide workshops on MIRLYN-to give
you an informed introduction to this exciting new
research tool.
A number of library branches are offering
workshops. Some require registration ahead of
time; others are basically walk-in sessions. Some
are geared to a general audience; others are
geared to particular subject areas.
So check the schedule below to see which of
the sessions are right for you.
A new era in information access is right around
the corner. And now is the best time to learn all
about it. Don't delay.
Discover the magic of MIRLYN.
