perhaps the only city where more
people like Phillip Glass than the
New Kids On The Block. Big names
like Leonard Bernstien, the Grateful
Dead, and the Smurfs on Ice bypass
our big brother to the east, Detroit,
to come to our tree laden metropolis.
The face of Ann Arbor has
changed greatly since I first arrived
in the fall of 1986 (for you new stu-
dents that was back when you didn't
have a driver's liscence). Gone are
Kresge's, the Wolverine Den, Rax,
Burger Fresh, most of Tally Hall,
the State Theater, the Campus The-
ater, Sneakers and Cleats, Tubby's,
Pantree, Denny's, and University
Cellar but now we have Espresso
Royale, Chef Jan's China Gate, Ur-
ban Outfitters, Hop 'In, Michigan
Book and Supply, and 1000 places
to buy falafel.
Soon I will say farwell to this
town that has nurtured me for the
last 1300 or so days of my life.
There's plenty to miss.
I could fill this space with advice
like, appreciate your college years in
this wonderful town, or take advan-
tage of all the most excellent things
Ann Arbor has to offer, but that
stuff is par for the course.
So again I will implore you to
follow this one peice of advice -
pay those parking tickets.

sports teams who appear on the tube

trons are tempted to turn into collec-

While many students don't have
the self-confidence to admit they en-

joy bowling, Cub's AC has been
known to make converts to the
sport. The pop-a-shot game here is
the best in the metro Detroit area,
and food is served until closing.
If you don't have a car at your
disposal, the above alternatives are
probably not real options. However,
Ann Arbor's Main Street strip which
hosts QUALITY BAR, CITY
GRILL, and FULL MOON - all
good choices -is within walking
distance. But be forewarned, the
crowds become older the further
north one travels on Main Street.
For the Michigan student looking
for a night at the bar it's important
to remember, there are more options
than first meet the eye.

The vote amended the city's code
such that if the state of Michigan
ever passes legislation making it
illegal to perform an abortion, the
fine in Ann Arbor for such an
offense will be set at five dollars.
The new legislation is yet untested.

See "Good Time Charley's" and

more of a mid-afternoon sophisti-

Daily NSE Editor
Jeff Howard thinks college stu-
dents have a lot of class.
Too much class.
Howard is the director of the
University's "service-learning" pro-
gram, Project Community. Estab-
lished 30 years ago by students at-
tempting to effect social change in
the Ann Arbor area, today Project
Community strives to get students
out of classrooms and into action.
Since it's beginning in 1960,
Project Community has grown to
include three different programs.
"Think back on your college
classes, and ask yourself how many
you've been satisfied with," said
Howard in a recent interview. "If you

THE MUG
The New Deal of the 1990s. Ann
Arbor socialism reaches new heights
with the Michigan Union Grill, a
rag-tag collection of restaurants that
each pay about 10 students to stand
around all day waiting for customers
and sneaking bites of food.
Many people come, order a large
soft drink, and spend the next 8
hours studying in the expansive seat-
ing area nearby. Very few people, on
the other hand, gather their families
and drive in from neighboring com-
munities for the rare treat of a MUG
rib-burger.
The rumor mill would have us
believe that the Little Caesar has
dispatched a legion to invade one or
more of the restaurant spots; look
forward to that. Located in the base-
ment of the Michigan Union.

answered anything over fifty percent
then you're an exception."
"We at Project Community be-
lieve that some of the most impor-
tant learning occurs outside of the
classroom," he added.
Project Community's original
program is an academic course,
comprised of part volunteer work,
part classroom discussion and part
writing that students take for two
credits. The class, listed under Soci-
ology 389 or Education 317, is also
called Project Community.
The volunteer work for the course
takes place in any of four different
fields: education, health care, crimi-
nal justice and chemical dependency.
Within those fields students are able
to choose from a variety locations
they wish to work at.
The second program Project
Community operates is called
SERVE. SERVE is an acronym for
Students in Educationally Rewarding
Volunteer Experiences. Established
two years ago, Howard describes
SERVE as a "information and refer-
ral clearinghouse".
"Serve is useful for people who
come in here and say, 'Look, I don't
want to sign up for the course, I just
want to help runaway teens,"' ex-
plained Howard, referring to one of
the areas in which students can vol-
unteer.
Students participating in SERVE
earn no credit, in fact, the program
does little more than place students
who want to volunteer their time and
effort towards helping others in one
of SERVE's more than 50 locations.
The Trained Volunteer Corps
(TVC) is the third program under the
auspices of Project Community. The

Project Community attempts to reach out to the Ann Arbor community. The
four different areas of specialization are education, health care, criminal .6

justice and chemical dependency.
TVC was established last spring
after the Kellogg foundation selected
Project Community as one of the
winners of a $151,000 grant intended
for public service.
"This is going to appeal to those
students really committed to ser-
vice," said Howard of Project Com-
munity's newest program.
TVC won't officially begin until
winter term 1991, but the prepara-
tion to give the program a successful
launch will last all fall term.
"We will recruit students to start
up each of our four divisions during
the fall, so we can be ready to go in
the winter," said Howard.
Each of TVC's four divisions
will work with a different group of
people including: homeless, elderly,
at risk youth, and illiterate adults.
Students enrolled in TVC will be
able to take the program on a credit
or non-credit basis. Howard said he
expects about 120 students, ranging
from those in their first-year to se-
niors, to participate in the TVC.
While the grant money will only
nourish the new program for a lim-
ited time, Howard hopes TVC will,
not fade away.
"We want to create a self-sustain-
ing group," he said. "We will give
them a structure and train the leaders
so that it (TVC) will continue to
operate well into the future."
While Project Community is
now firmly entrenched at the Univer-
sity, its status has not always been
as assured.

"Only a few years ago Project
Community felt on the margin of
the mission of the University," said
Howard, "now we are looked at as a
model.
"Just the other day I spoke with
President Duderstadt, in passing, and
he mentioned to me that he would
like to see 50% student participatio*
in Project Community," he added.
"It was a totally unprovoked and
unsolicited comment. That says
something to me about the com-
mitment the University is making to
interactive learning."
The addition of two new pro-
grams to Project Community's
repertoire is indicative of not only
the success of the University's pros
gram, but also of a growing trend"T
toward interactive learning across the
country.
While Michigan, Berkley, a few
other large state schools, and some
private religious schools are gener-
ally acknowledged as leaders in inter-
active learning programs according
to Howard, he said that today, many
schools of all types are developin
similar programs.
And all the hard work performed
by Project Community's volunteers
does not seem to go unnoticed.
"It's a very enthusiastic response
we get," said Howard. "These are
students providing services not
available otherwise. There just are
not that many people around to do
things like this."
