Best Library: the Grad
We are investigating the possibility
that there are still students lost in there
from the days of the Eisenhower ad-
ministration. Where's Rambo when you
need him?
Best Place to Study: the Grad
We're still waiting for Rambo.
Best Place to Work Out: CCRB
Perfect place to watch those Greek
letters whiz by as they get physical on
the StairMaster.
Best Campus Tradition: the Nude
Mile
How come themen always outnum-
ber the women by about 10 to one?

Best Cause/Issue/Movement:
Hash Bash
NORML 3 University 0
Best Activist Group: NORML
Just barely beating out Christians
Against Coffee Shops.
Best Protest Slogan: (tie)
Here we go: "Fuck You," "Fuck
Bush," "Jesus never drank coffee" and,
finally, "pc = plain courtesy."
Best Speaker/Lecturer in the Past
Year: Bill Clinton
Who could possibly beat the Come-
back Kid who roared into town last
October, on a cold, cold night, to dazzle
us all in true JFK style? You gave us

something to tell our grandchildren
about, Bill. Come back. We miss you.
Best MSA Member: Craig
Greenberg
No offense, Craig, but this was a
trick question.
Best Computing Center: Angell
Hall
The best if you like long lines,
waitlists and annoying creative writing
students printing their 300-page manu-
scripts as you wait with grit teeth. Try
your dorm computer cluster. (Really.)
Not that we're complaining.
Best Place to Find Parking: No-
where
Thirteen places got votes, but we're
not telling you where they are.
Best student group / organiza-
tion: the Michigan Daily
Despite votes for SHOUT, Arts
Chorale and the Michigan Vegetarians,
the Daily won this category. Honestly.
We did. Really.
Best Fraternity to Party with:
Sigma Phi Epsilon
If you like sticky beer-drenched
floors, grabby frat rats and some occa-
sionally stimulating conversations about
favorite vomit experiences, this is the
place for you. Just kidding.
Ugliest Building: the UGLI
Can't you guys be a little more cre-

ative? It's like some guy named Oscar
winning an Academy Award.
Best Bathroom: the Union
It'sprobably somewhatcleaner than
your own, although that's not saying a
hell of a lot.

Best Lecture Hall: 1800 Chem
Enjoy itall youwant.It'sbuiltthanks
to profits from the Dow war machine.
But seriously, there's no thrill quite like
twirling around on one of those swivel
chairs. And the decor's so futuristic you
feel like you're on the set of "Star Trek,
the Next Generation."

U U

17 YEARS OF SERVING ANN ARBOR
Schoolkids', and our all-classical store, SKR Classical,
are considered to be among the best of their type.
Here's a sample of what folks are saying about us:
"Schoolkids' has been my favorite store in Ametica for almost 15 years.
Schoolkids' is a genuine 'record store' in the classic sense; its atmosphere and
its regard for the music it sells is clearly unique in the business. It does not
underestimate the taste or intelligence of its customers. It carries the widest
spectrum of music--all sorts of music--that I've ever seen anywhere. Its
employees are helpful, knowledgeable fans of music rather than mere
button pushers." Dave DiMartino
Los Angeles Bureau Chief, Billboard; Record reviewer for Spin,
Rolling Stone, and Musician; former Editor of Creem magazine.
ANN ARBOR'S OWN RECORD LABEL: Be sure to pick up our new releases
by local blues stars Madcat & Shari Kane, ex-NRBQ guitarist Steve Ferguson, and a classic
rock reissue by the Kingbees. Great albums by boogie pianist Mr. B, award-winning singer/
songwriter Dick Siegel, and ace roots rock guitarist George Bedard are also available.

Here's proof that your diploma is definitely
worth more than the piece of paper it's
written on. In fact, it can get you into a
wild, yet practical, '93 Toyota Paseo. Or
any one of our quality cars and trucks.
Okay, motivated collegians, you can
