Shadow Program pairs 'U'
alumni students for week

by Natasha Goburdhun
For the past four years the Stu-
dent Alumni Council (SAC) has
sponsored a one-week internship
program that allows students to
work with alumni in a field of in-
terest.
The Shadow Program is geared
towards first- and second-year stu-
dents though everyone is welcome
to participate. The program allows
students to work with alumni of
their choice for one week in May. If
both the participants agree, the pro-
gram may last longer, however
most find that one week is satisfac-
tory.
Interested students must first
fill out applications and a list of
three mentors they wish to work
with. A series of interviews, given
by the SAC, then helps place stu-
dents with alumni of their choice in
fields such as engineering, business,
medicine and government.

Although the program usually
involves alumni, this year former
University football coach and cur-
rent Detroit Tigers president° Bo
Schembechler, will participate in
the area of sports management.
Alumni, often difficult to keep
track of, were made aware of the
program through ads in the alumni
magazine and letters to club presi-
dents. Response from the alumni has
been very positive.
Many students have found it to
be a helpful way to make career de-
cisions before they complete their
major.
"It's a chance to reinforce ideas
about a career or change them de-

pending on your experience," said
Randy Lehemer, co-vice president of
the Shadow Program.
LSA junior Patty Gillen worked
last year with a TV news reporter in
Cincinnati. She agreed that the in-
ternship program was a good way to
learn more about a career and rec-
ommended it to other students.
"It gives you first hand knowl-
edge about what they do day-to-
day... not just the glamorous ouput
but you get to see behind the scenes
what really happens," Gillen said.
The SAC will hold a mass meet-
ing tonight at 7 p.m. in Angell Hall
Auditorium C for all interested
students.

Nov. 4, at about 9:30 p.m. in front
of Hill Auditorium, their records do
t show reports of either the East
uad nor the Stockwell incidents.
However, the woman who was
assaulted in front of East Quad, who
wished to remain anonymous, said
she reported her assault to the secu-
rity guard who was working in her
dorm on Nov. 9, the morning of the
incident.
"After I told her my report, the
security guard told me my assailant
eit the description of the man who
had raped and beaten another woman
that evening," the East Quad assault
survivor said. She added that the po-
lice officer who filed the report said
she thought the other incident had
happened in front of Stockwell.
Although DPSS officers said this
weekend that all reports filed should
be on record, they say they have no
ecord of the assault at East Quad.
DPSS spokesperson Lt. Vern
Baisden did not return phone calls
regarding the issue.
"The Daily has also received nu-
merous phone calls throughout the
past week from students who had
heard stories about sexual assaults in
front of East Quad and Stockwell,
and some had heard of instances on
the Diag as well.

that have negative effects on the en-

The project, which started as a
one credit project for last year in the
School of Natural Resources (SNR)
mentor program, is currently run by
SNR sophomore Fred Werner.
Werner, with his mentor,

Shereen Rothman, who was a gradu-
ate student in environmental educa-
tion at the time, brainstormed the
workshop which eventually served
as the framework for Rothman's
master's thesis.
Since it's inception, the Living
Lightly Workshop has received a lot
of exposure, Werner said. "Shereen
is now doing this stuff all over the
world," he said. The workshop was

to do something like this to have to
reinvent the wheel." Werner said.

African-American and Jewish com-
munities.
"I'm certainly pleased that a
neo-Nazi is not sitting in the gover-
nor's mansion in Louisiana. That
goes without saying," said Joseph
Kohane, director of the Hillel
Foundation.
But Kohane added he was con-
cerned that what happened in
Louisiana could happen elsewhere in
the case of economic hardship.
"There is a certain percent of
Americans who are not members of
the Ku Klux Klan, but who harbor

Center on Friday said she too had
heard the stories, but had received no
information from DPSS.
Neither Stockwell residents nor
the Housing Director, Julie Lavrack,
said they had heard anything about
the incident in front of their dorm.
However, Lavrack said, "I heard a
rumor Wednesday afternoon or
Thursday that someone had gotten
beaten up on the street, but I haven't
heard anything more about it and
Housing Security says it doesn't
have any record of an assault."
Ann Arbor Police Detective
Michael Shubring said he has no re-
port of any sexual assaults on

that if there had been a series of at-

likely have notified city officers.

LSA senior Devlin Ponte, presi-
dent of the Black Student Union,
also expressed concern about Duke's
support outside of Louisiana.
"Duke was getting a lot of ex-
ternal aid, from outside Louisiana.
This campaign and election is not
only indicative of what's going on
in Louisiana, but in the whole na-
tion," he said.
Although Duke ran as a Chris-
tian Republican, most Christians
and Republicans also welcomed his
defeat.
LSA junior Greg Morrison, an
active Christian, said, "I don't want
to judge the man's heart, but I
would have a hard time arriving at
some of the some conclusions he has,
using Christianity."
"I'm glad to see he lost," said

"Duke gives Republicans a bad
name. When Duke identifies himself
as a Republican and people identify
Duke as a racist ... people conclude
that the Republican party is a racist
party, which I obviously think is
not true."
