'U ecogie 2 as 1993
Ousanig Students
Engineer Galicia excels in academics, leadershi -9.

by James Cho
Daily Staff Reporter
From studying denture adhesives
during an internship with Proctor &
Gamble to serving as 1992Engineer-
ing Council president, senior Chris-
tina Galicia said she has attained her
goals of being both a model student
and a campus leader.
And the University seems to
agree.
Galicia was named a 1993 Out-
standing Student by the University
for her display of leadership and her
impressive academic record.
"I simply took advantage of all
the opportunities available. I became
involved in extracurricular activities
because I felt there was more to an
education than sitting. in the class-
room," Galicia said.
Galicia, who is a member of the
campus Society of WomenEngineers,
will be continuing a family tradition.

Constance, her mother, stated
proudly, "She is the third engineer from
a family of engineers."
Galicia's grandfather and father are
both engineers in Windsor, Ont.
Vice President for Student Affairs
Maureen Hartford cited Galicia's con-
tributions to the Leadershape Program
and the Student Leader Board.
Jennifer Starrman, an Engineering
junior, also attested to Galicia's dili-
gence.
"She is very energetic and works
hard to improve things for engineers,"
she said. "She cares about what people
go through and tries to make students
into student leaders."
Galicia played an instrumental role
in the Adopt-a-Class program, which
pairs University engineering students
and eighth-grade science students in
Detroit.
The program aimstosparkaninter-
est in math and science among the

children, saidJanette Sinischo, a science
teacher at Earhart Middle School.
She added, "Christina is extremely
organized and personable. She is com-
fortable working with children and has
good rapport with her colleagues."
Galicia said working in amale-domi-
natedarenais often trying -but ithas its
benefits.
"It can be very difficult and frustrat-
ing," Galicia said. "But I feel I'm ready
for any challenge and I feel confident
aboutmyability because Iknow I will be
able to do the best jobI can."
Galicia's roommate, also an Engi-
neering senior, agreed that the abun-
dance of male engineers is not necessar-
ily a disadvantage.
While Galicia is extremely focused
on engineering, she still has fun.
"Christina is no different from any
other person. She likes to got out to bars
and look at guys," roommate Tamara
Torres Torres said.

Forum to
combat
anti-gay
legiltion
by Jen DiMascio
Daily Gender Issues Reporter
Campus homosexual-rights activ-
ists will gather to discuss what they
consider discriminatory legislation to-
morrow.
The Lesbian Gay Male Programs
Office (LGMPO) is sponsoring a day-
long symposium, "What to do about.-
Nine and Two: Organizing to Ensure
Lesbian-Gay-Bisexual Rights." Thai
forum will discuss proposed amend-i
ments to the state constitutions of Colo-**
rado, Oregon andMichigan, which aim-
to limit the civil rights of homosexuals'
Experts and activists forhomosexuai
rights hope to mobilize students by or-
ganizing groups to fight passage of the
laws.
LGMPO Coordinator Jim Toy said"
the law proposed in Michigan could
render an Ann Arbor ordinance protect;
ing homosexual rights ineffective. N
If such an amendment passes, To
said, "An apartment owner couldrefusd
to rent to a same-sex couple, or a4
employer could refuse to hire some'"
body solely on the basis of sexual orien4
tation."
Panelist Donna Red Wing, execu-
tive director of the Lesbian Community
Project, will discuss the difference be-
tween the Colorado amendment, acti-
vated Jan.15, and the proposed Oregon
amendment.
Red Wing said the Oregon amend-
mentmade itpossible for governmental
licenses - including educational and
medical - to be revoked because of a
person's sexual orientation.
"Clearly the Oregon initiative went
too far. The Colorado initiative is a little
morepalatable to moderates," RedWing
said. "Clearly it was the wedge allow-
ing the far right into Oregon."

Renaissance man Rodden dabbles in ar, music

by James Cho
Daily Staff Reporter
"Art is death," reads the sign above
the amorphous sculpture -constructed
of two chairs, coke cans, and sneakers
- that LSA senior Jonathan Rodden
constructed while taking a break from
working on his senior thesis.
University administrators noticed
Rodden's stellar academic performance
and named him one of two outstanding
students this year.
Rodden's quiet voice and modest
temperament contrast his burly, 6-foot,
230-pound frame and bone-crushing
handshake.
Although Rodden was given the op-
portunity to cross the Hill Auditorium
stage for being a five-;term Angell
Scholar, friends claim this whizkidmight

stumble a little along the way.
"He's physically uncoordinated and
clumsy at basketball," his roommate
Jimmy Yoon added.
Rodden credits his parents, John and
Judith, for building his self-motivation.
His mother said, "He doesn't dabble
in his work, but wants to do even more
than he has to."
Rodden also attributes his passion
for classical music to his mother. "(My
mother) pushed me into it when I was
younger, but ithas since becomea source
of enjoyment," he said.
Now an expert clarinetist, Rodden
has played in the University Concert
Band every term.
Rodden has been accepted to
Harvard Law School and political sci-
ence programs at Stanford and Yale.

Yet after sorting papers atahome-
town law firm the past three sum-
mers, Rodden said, "I don't know if
I want to be a lawyer."
"His mind tells him to got to law
school, but his heart says become a
political science professor," his sister
Jenelle said.
Rodden has received many hon-
ors at the University, including Phi
BetaKappaand the Sophomore Hon-
ors Award. He was also a semi-final-
istin theRhodes Scholarshipcompe-
tition this past fall.
Rodden is also involved with Pi
Sigma Alpha - the University po-
litical science honor society - and
the Michigan Mortar Board - an
honorary service organization forjun-
iors and seniors.

by Jonathan Berndt
Daily City Reporter
Hail. Hail. The gang's all here.
All but one of the candidates for City
Council met at City Hall last night for
the League of Women Voters' annual
issues forum. But with only one minute
to speak, the candidates were forced to
resort to espousing basic platforms.
The four mayoral candidates spent
30 minutes squaring off on various is-
sues ranging from business to tax lev-
els.
After Mayor Liz Brater opened with
an encapsulated history of city govern-
ment during the last two years, Tisch
party candidate Paul Jensen took his
time to pay tribute to Zolton Ferency, a
social activist who died Tuesday from
complications of a heart attack.
Then Emily Salvette, the Libertar-
ian candidate, began her drive to make
a lasting impression on voters' pocket-
books.
"I want to give your money back to
you," she said, referring to property
taxes, which the candidates agreed bur-
dened citizens too much.

Republican candidate Ingrid
Sheldon said she would develop long-
range solutions to public housing prob-
lems, recognize the city's diverse needs,
and allow city departments to imple-
ment council actions.
The mayoral hopefuls decried the
idea of a city income tax. However,
Jensen dissented, "I will not rule outany
revenue measures at this time."
The next issue was the business cli-
mate in Ann Arbor, something Brater
has pointed to as one of her strong
points.
"I think it's the role of the city ... to
facilitate business in the city of Ann
Arbor," she said, citing her work with
the Downtown Marketing Task Force.
Sheldon and Salvette said over-regu-
lation contributes to problems with
merchants.
After slamming bag fees for gar-
bage collection - unless it's a private
company, Salvette said - the candi-
dates went to the millage proposal for
park maintenance on the ballot, which
everybody except Salvette supported.
Then the council candidates took

the stage, all hoping to be sitting in one
of those large chairs again 17 days from
now.
With only a minute to speak, the 15
candidates found it hard to dig deeply
into any of the issues presented by the
audience.
Candidates said competitive bidding,
improved council efficiency and out-
right privatization would help hold the
line on city spending while improving
services.
Solutionstothe city's homelessprob-
lem ranged from 1st Ward Libertarian
David Raaflaub wanting to erect tents
in public parks to 2nd Ward Republican
Jane Lumm advocating that the city
merely distribute federal money.
Other Libertarians, including Unia
versity students Kreg Nichols and
Samuel Copi, called for deregulation of
city building codes, while 5th Ward
Democrat David Stead said, "It is the
responsibility ofall to help those in less"
fortunate situations."
Marc Murawski, the Tisch party
candidate in the 4th Ward, was the only
candidate absent.
