What it's Like at a Prison
Following is a journal entry by Scott Neisch, the Student Volunteer
Coordinator at Cassidy Lake Technical School during the Fall '89
term.
"I very much enjoyed the first site visit. It was the first time I saw the
living accommodations inside a prison. I personally believe that prisons
need a lot of work before they will start doing any good. The prisoners at
Cassidy Lake are living in a camp for adults and are not learning from
the experience. They are being surrounded by other negative experiences
which will not help them in the long run. They need a better education
system and they need more positive reactions from the community. I feel
that Project Community is a good start and I know from last year that
the prisoners really enjoyed it. It would be nice if we could get everyday
citizens to give up a couple of hours a week to have similar discussions
with the inmates. If everyone was aware of the problems and wanted to
help we could make some very interesting and exciting changes in the
system.
Site went well this week and I really enjoyed myself. We have a very good
group of prisoners and I think they are going to open up and talk to us
eventually. We talked about chemical dependency and that worked out
to be a good topic. A majority of prisoners are associated with drugs in
one way or another and they all had something to say on the subject.
The students are getting a chance to think about the sociological imagi-
nation and how it applies to site. They even said that none of the prison-
ers would look like a convict on the street. Most of them dress well and
are smart. The students see that there is more going on here than just a
bunch of dumb losers. These people were helped into crime by outside
forces. I'll try to keep you updated on some of the questions and an-
swers we come up with at site."
Project Community will offer over 35 service-learning opportunities
in Chemical Dependency, Criminal.Justice, Education, and Health
in the Fall '90 term. We will have information and overrides begin-
ning April 5. To find out more, stop by our office at 2205 Michigan
Union or call us at 3-3548 for more information. Hours are Monday-
Friday from 8-5.

Racism and Courage
in Photo Exhibit
A moving exhibit documenting the struggle by Blacks in
America for justice is appearing in the Art Lounge, first
floor of the Michigan Union. Racial violence in the early-
to-mid 20th century and the civil rights movement in the-
1960's are both shown here. Both eras produced much
graphic and moving photographic evidence of hardship
and courage. Sponsored by UCAR (the United Coalition
Against Racism) and Michigan Union Arts and Program-
ming, the exhibit will remain open through this Thurs-
day, April 19.
