Swain added that the administra-
tion was still looking into ways to
take care of problems which sur-
faced in the Union's food court -
specifically with Little Caesar's
and Wendy's restaurant customers
who could not pick up their food.
"We are not sure how to handle
some of the glitches that came up...
We did not think about all of the
permutations..." Swain said. "We
did have some problems last week-
end and I certainly admit to those."
Levy said the policy-framers are
reconsidering the policy as it applies
to students' guests. Under the cur-
rent policy, a student could not

Orrin Hatch (R-Utah).
Thomas praised Thurgood
Marshall, the liberal black jurist he
hopes to replace on the high court, as
"one of the great architects of legal
battles to open doors that seemed so
hopelessly and permanently

Wendy's or Little Caesar's during
the monitored times.
Levy said the current guest pol-
icy is in place due to room occupancy
limits. "Occupancy ceilings have to
be maintained. We are trying to cre-

tunity to get student input. We are
looking at getting primary and reg-
ular users of the Union such as BGA
and GEO to make sure we get a good
representative sample of users of
the Union," Levy said.

Despite these changes he said
business was not hurt this weekend
because of the policy. But, he added
the policy was an inconvenience.
"It's kind of annoying when
you're making food and no on comes
to pick it up. It's a waste of food,"
Paul said.
Although the year-old Student-
Sponsored Event Policy does apply
to North Campus Commons, Levy
said the new identification policy
will not be enforced at North Cam-
pus Commons, where the traffic
level and number of social events
are lower than the Union. However,
he added the policy could be ex-
tended to North Campus Commons
at a later date.
"It is possible in the future. It
could be weeks or longer than that,"
Levy said.

Administrators said the policy
will be under constant reevaluation.
"The best approach is to review
(the policy) at the end of every
weekend to make sure students have
fun and are safe," Swain said.

Paul said he is advising non-stu-

In addition to succeeding
Marshall as only the second black
justice in history, Thomas, at 43,
would be the second-youngest this
decade.
Biden asked Thomas why he had
praised an anti-abortion article by
conservative businessman Lewis
Lehrman as a "splendid example of
applying natural law."
Thomas insisted that his speech

to the Heritage Foundation in an au-
ditorium bearing Lehrman's name
was simply to win conservative
support for using natural law as a
rallying point for "aggressive en-
forcement of civil rights."
He told Sen. Edward Kennedy
(D-Mass.) that his praise for the ar-
ticle was "a throwaway line."
"If this committee is to endorse
your confirmation, we must know
with certainty that neither of these

radical constitutional departures is
what you have in mind when you
talk about natural law," Biden told
Thomas.
Sen. Alan Simpson (R-Wyo.)
ridiculed those concerns, saying
"natural law will become nothing
but a pseudonym for natural opposi-
tion or natural partisanship or natu-
ral frustration" at putting another
conservative on the Supreme Court.

The University School of
Business Administration has recon-
structed the master's degree cur-
riculum in order to help students
keep up with the ever-changing
business world.
The changes include a new hands-
on corporate experience, an updated
orientation program, workshops,
and a new computer database.
Under the new curriculum, stu-
dents will be required to spend
seven weeks out of the two-year
program working directly with a
company.
The requirement, called the
multi-disciplinary action project
(MAP), provides students with an
opportunity to apply their class-
room knowledge and analyze a real-
world company's administrative
and operational processes.
"The purpose is to give students
exposure to managing techniques
that have been used by the best-man-
aged companies in virtually every
industry," said Wayne Brockbank,
assistant professor of
Organizational Behavior and Human
Resource Management.
Business school administrators
said they expect to evaluate and
modify MAP on a regular basis.
"The M.B.A. program will respond
to market forces as effectively as do
the products of successful busi-
nesses," said Paul Danos, associate
dean of Business Administration.
This fall also marks the first
year incoming M.B.A. students par-
ticipated in the "Global Citizenship
Program" during orientation. The
two-day program emphasizes
teamwork, awareness of community
needs, and citizenship.
Participants are divided into
groups of approximately eight
first-year M.B.A students, a faculty
member, a corporate manager, and a
team leader. Each group participates
in various team-building exercises
and visits a local non-profit organi-

frat guys are gay, even if they don't
admit it," said Blane McLane, a gay1
University employee.
"Gay men in fraternities are still1
underground, but it seems to bei
moving out. There is a passive accep-
tance in fraternities and co-ops. I
would imagine this could have a
ripple-effect with more chapters1
opening on other campuses,"
McLane added. -
There are currently 19 DLP chap-
ters across the country, with more'
than 500 members. The MSU chap-
ter will be the first one in Michigan
and already has a membership of 14
students.
University IFC President Matt
Commers said they would have no
problems accepting a gay fraternity
on campus.
"We welcome any and all fra-1
ternities that would like to expand1

weeks in advance of our plans, yet
they gave us no advance notice of the
new policy ... They didn't treat us in
a way that's very professional,"
Adams said
Noceeba Southern, also a member
of Delta Sigma Theta and secretary
of the BGA, said if the policy was

zation.
"Volunteering at these organi-
zations is a tangible reason to uti-
lize teamwork and to recognize the
relationship between a business, its
clients, and the community it
serves," said Leslie Benecki, a third-
year graduate student who served as
a team leader.
"The days of economic dictators
are gone. In order to be a manager or
leader, one must be a team player or
he will be left behind," she added.
First-year M.B.A. student John
Marsh, who participated in the ori-
entation program, said, "Global
Citizenship is an excellent oppor-
tunity for business students to inte-
grate themselves into the commu-
nity and find out how important it
is to get involved."

Business School Dean Joseph
White is encouraging students to
continue working on community
projects, and suggested they submit
budgets to cover necessary expenses.
Other innovations in the M.B.A.
program include Executive Skills
Workshops aimed at developing be-
havioral skills. These workshops,
presented by external consultants,
will be comparable to training of-
fered at many large corporations,
Danos said.
In addition to curriculum
changes, a computer-based informa-
tion system has been developed to
help students manage their profes-
sional growth. Dubbed "M-Track,"
the system will centralize the re-
cruiting process, provide informa-
tion on corporate presentations, and
allow students to monitor their
personal skills and development.
on this campus. In our constitution.
it states that the IFC is open to all
males regardless of sexual prefer-
ence, so that is something that cer-
tainly would not hinder their way,"
Commers said.
Fraternity members at the
University said they had mixed feel-
ings about whether a gay fraternity
on campus would work.
"The only thing I see wrong
with it is I don't see them being acv
cepted. No frat here would want to
do anything with them - it's just
homophobia," said Vice President
of Alpha Tau Omega Chris Hudetz.
"I know Michigan is liberal, but the
Greek system is a completely dif-
ferent story," he added.
Delta Sigma Phi member Brad
Gray said he does not believe a gay
fraternity would work at the
University.
"The gay community is not ac-
cepted now and just because they
form a fraternity I still don't think
they would be accepted," Gray said.
continued, the BGA would be forced
to seek other accommodations. "But
we shouldn't be run out of the
Union because it's supposed to be a
place for the University commu-
nity," she said.0
"We were under the impression
that the Union was a public build-
ing for the students and we feel that
they are turning it into a non-public
building by doing this," Green
added.
