Painted concrete walls and com-
munity bathrooms are among the
hallmarks of campus housing.
Thousands of first-year students are
shuttled in each year, and most move
out by their junior year.
Most students' first taste of the
real world is settling into their first
off-campus apartment. But for those
who live in the University's married
housing, real life starts on campus.
The 1,700 Family Housing De-
velopment units, on both Central
and North Campus, are home to over
1,000 married and single-parent
families. And most of them contend
with cooking, cleaning, and raising
children - as well as their studies.
"There's such a strong sense of
community," said Joanne Brzinski, a

Brzinski is living in a family
housing unit at Northwood with her
husband and five-year-old son. The
atmosphere is friendly, she said, and
families often get together for
activities such as pot-luck dinners.
Mike Bressler, a Rackham gradu-
ate student, said living in University
Terrace with his wife is a good
alternative to off-campus housing.

"The rent is lower and the conditions
are overall better than living in an
apartment somewhere in Ann Ar-
bor," he said.
To live in married housing, an
undergraduate must carry at least
eight credit hours, and a graduate
student must carry at least six credit
hours. Married students must present
their marriage certificate, and stu-
dents with children must present
birth certificates.
University staff may also live in
married housing, but only after all
eligible students have been housed.

The .married housing develop-
ment, built in 1985, provides com-
munity activities as well as homes
for its residents. An English lan-
guage program for foreign students,
courtyard volleyball games, and pre-
school groups have helped the resi-
dents get to know one other, the
students say.
Eric Luskin, director of family
housing, has specific objectives in
mind for the project. "We have a
goal to make this a special commu-
nity in addition to supporting the
academic mission of the university,"
he said.
Eight community aides are pro-
vided to help married students adjust
to their new life on campus. The
social life in married housing,
Bressler said, is necessarily different
from that in the dormitories.

Paul, who has been indicted on
federal drug trafficking charges in
Miami, had been considered the most
powerful figure in Haiti after Nam-
phy. It was not known if Paul played
a role in the coup, but sources said
Namphy and Paul were at odds.
In Washington, State Department
spokesperson Anita Stockman said
noncomissioned officers of the Pre-
sidential Guard captured Namphy in
an apparently bloodless coup and
persuaded Avril to take over.

She said they were believed to be
"dissatisfied with recent human rights
violations and the general deterio-
ration in the security situation punc-
tuated by attackes against the chur-
ches over the past two weeks."
Stockman said Avril phoned the
U.S. ambassador and said he was
assuming the presidency. She said
the U.S. government still wants Paul
to answer the drug trafficking charges
in court.
Namphy arrived in a private plane
at a private airport in Santo Domin-
go, the Dominican capital, early
Sunday morning, said Fabio Herrera
Cabral, deputy foreign minister of

the Dominican Republic, which
shares the island of Hispanola with
The Dominican Republic said
Namphy and Port-au-Prince Mayor
Franck Romain were granted political
asylum in its embassy in Port-au-
Prince. Romain was a colonel in the
Presidential Guard and chief of police
under Duvalier.
Sources who spoke on condition
of anonymity said the fighting
involved army factions and members
of the Tonton Macoutes, the dreaded
agents that terrorized Haitians during
the 29-year dictatorships of the
Duvalier family. Detials were not

A later broadcast named the other

mittee, including the army, navy, and
air force commanders, eight of
Burma's nine regional army com-
manders, and the unpopular military
intelligence chief, Col. Khin Nyunt.
The broadcast said all government
and state bodies were dissolved,
including local administrations.
Striking government workers were
told to return to work by Sept. 26 or
face dismissal.
The initial broadcast, preceded by
martial music, said the military took
over state authority "to curb further
deterioration of the general situation
in the country."

These advisers act as a resources
for both students and residence staff,
said Karen Gulley, MPA for Mosher
Jordan Hall. "I want to increase
awareness (about ethnic culture) for
all individuals," she said.
Together, the councils and the
peer advisers organize programs that
typify the culture and interests of
various ethnic groups.
