The doors opened at about 8:30 last Tuesday night, and the wildness began.
About four thousand new students hit the Michigan Union for the second
annual Union Party, and they all stayed. And danced. And ate. And drank.
And socialized. And won prizes. And had a blast!
The Party, which took place immediately after the Freshman Convocation at
Hill Auditorium, was thrown by the Michigan Union as a welcome to new
Rob LoPrete, a third-year law student and Chair of the Michigan Union Board
of Representatives, said, "The Union is going to be an important part of
people's lives while they're at Michigan, and we wanted to make sure and
welcome them with a bang." He continued, "Looks like it worked!"
Students flooded the Union, partaking of the food and drink offered, dancing
to New Music in the Ballroom and Reggae in the U-Club, playing pool,
socializing, and relaxing. The Union and The University Club went dry for the
night, serving no alcohol in respect for the partiers' ages.
"Look, here's the banner we all signed during orientation!" shouted one
student over the beat of the New Music.
The thirty-foot banner, reading "Class of 1992," is packed with the signatures
of those who went to the Union's Orientation dances this past summer.
"This is the first, and probably the only, time I'll have a chance to be with the
entire Class of 1992 until graduation," another said.
The Prize Raffle was one of the major excitements of the evening. Prizes
donated by local merchants included a CD/ROM player from Apple computer
and free coursepacks for the entire time you attend U-M from Kinko's.
The winners, announced at the Party and listed below, can claim their prize
by coming to the Administrative Offices in the Union-Room 1310-between

Diag Explodes
witli Festifall Friday
Over 100 student organizations and
University departments will
fill the Diag Friday, September 16,
l1am - 4pm with entertainment,
information, and activities de -
signed to get YOU to realize how
important it is, to get involved in
student organizations.
Cocurricular activities-anything
you do outside the classroom
that adds to your experience and
knowledge-are great
opportunities to learn and grow.
By joining a student organization,
you can learn to be a leader, to
dance, to cook, to enjoy, to fence,
to juggle, or even to fly. You can
meet people with the same religious
or academic interests you have. At
the very least, you will succeed in
expanding your educational ex-
perience and changing your life.
Take some time to explore during
Festifall. You can pick up a
program with a list of participants
out on the diag during




with information from The University Record
The eleven thousand people that make North Campus their headquar-
ters every day will have an even larger selection of services and
facilities to make use of by this time next year.
A $4.2 million addition to the North Campus Commons will provide
30,000 square feet of space, allow expansion of services, and give the
North Campus community more room to relax, meet, and dine.
Besides the physical addition, the Commons this past spring became
part of the Michigan Union. Linking the two organizations means that
the University community can look forward to new and expanded
programs, facilities and services, both on North Campus and on
Central Campus.
"Joining forces like this means that we can contribute to the growing
sense of community between the two campuses," says Frank Cianci-
ola, Director of the Michigan Union/Student Programs and North
Campus Commons. "We will be increasing communication, putting
on some simmilar programs, and generally trying to bring the two
campuses closer together, " he adds.
The "U" broke ground in late March for the Commons addition that is
scheduled to be completed by fall 1989, according to Molly M.
Friedrichs, Michigan Union Assistant Director/North Campus
"They are currently pouring concrete for the first floor," said Com-
mons Administrative Assistant John Lindner, "and we'll see the actual
building start to be erected by the end of the month."
The 43,000 square foot Commons was built in 1964 and houses
conference rooms, a snack bar that seats 110, a large kitchen, a main
dining room that seat 250-270, book store, copy store and two auto-
matic teller machines. Lobby walls provide gallery space for art
The addition, Friedrichs says, will allow expansion of food services
and the bookstore and addition of
other services yet to be deter-
mined. These services may
include a travel agency, music
store, mini-bank and credit union
4 a' outlet. The space will be deter-
mined based on what wil im-
prove the quality of life on North
Campus. The brick-and-glass
rectangular addition will blend
in with the existing Commons.
