Festifall: A Fact-Filled Friday for Fall Fun!
You have always wanted to learn how to fly your own plane or juggle or cook (not just peanut butter sand-
wiches) or fence or dance (eat your heart out, Paula Abdul!) or be a ieader (we need YOU in Washington
now!) or just lay back an enjoy. This Friday you will get the chance to find out about all of these new and
On Friday, September 15 from 11 am-4pm the Diag will be filled with representatives from over 100 student
organizations and University departments plus all of YOU. This is Festifall, with entertainment, information,
and activities designed to show YOU how important and fun it is to get involved in student organizations.
Pick up a program with a list of participants when you come down to the Diag. **Be sure to check out the
Union Arts and Programming table: interesting things go on in the Union, and you can be part of it all.**
Anything you do outside the classroom that adds to your experience and knowledge-called "a cocurricular
activity"-is a great opportunity to learn and grow. You can meet people with the same religious or aca-
demic interests you have-or the very opposite. You will expand your educational experience and maybe
change your life.
So, take some time this Friday afternoon to explore all the extra things that you can do on campus this year
and come to Festifall.

You can make a difference in the lives of others on campus and in the
community! S.E.R.V.E. (Students in Educationally Rewarding Volun-
teer Experiences) is the U-M program that connects students with over
100 community service agencies and social action groups. You may
choose to tutor illiterate adults, to rock babies in the children's hospital,
to work at a homeless shelter, to become a big brother or big
sister...and there are many other chances to help. Whatever your
interests and skills, there is an agency or individual that needs YOU!
S.E.R.V.E. works with students in various ways by providing on-going
volunteer placements, one-time service projects for groups of stu-
dents, information about campus and community social action groups,
independent study and research opportunities, and a special elderly
outreach program. If any of these volunteer or social action opportuni-
ties interest you, please stop by the S.E.R.V.E. office at 2211 Michigan
Union, or call 936-2437.

"Simply put, Joe Jackson's concert Saturday night (August 13, 1989)
was the best rock 'n roll style performance to hit town this year."
Detroit Free Press critic Gary Graff wrote that just recently. Now is the
chance to see for yourself.
The office of Major Events will be presenting Joe Jackson with his 10-
piece band in concert Monday, September 18 at 8PM in Hill Audito-
British-born Jacksonfirst emerged at the height of the 1979 pop-New
Wave explosion. He has since experimented with reggae, big band
jazz, and more exotic hybrids. It only takes a moment to identify his
unique songs and voice. "Steppin' Out" and "Is She Really Going out
with Him" remain classic Jackson songs.
Tickets are on sale now at the Michigan Union Ticket Office. For ticket
