SPRAY IT AWAY
Athletic Dept. adds
By TIMOTHY GREIMEL
FOR THE DAILY
The University Athletic Department
is offering anew internship program for
students interested in careers in sports
management. The program, named
Team Blue, took off with the Washing-
ton State home football game Sept. 4.
John Rotche, the 1990 University
graduate who is in charge of the pro-
gram, said the internship will give par-
ticipants "a hell of a resume."
Although Team Blue currently in-
volves only five interns, Rotche hopes it
will eventually consist of 200 to 300
'We can always use people with
freshminds, energy andcreativity. We'd
like to learn from them and hopefully
they can learn fromus.... We don't just
want bodies," he said. "It will give
students an opportunity to be creative
and give back to the University."
Interns are currently involved in serv-
ing members of the Victor's Club, which
is a group of alums who have donated
$15,000 to the Athletic Department.
They cater to Victor's Clubmembersby
making hotel reservations for them,
greeting them at football games and
setting up and cleaning up Crisler Arena
where Victor's Club people can go get
concessions and relax during games.
Interns are also involved in liaisons
with financial supporters - including
making phone calls, preparing mailings
and sending out catalogues - said Don
Lefebvre, a junior in the Business
School, who is presentlyan intern. Team
Blue volunteers also go to away foot-
ball games and entertain Victor's ( ub
members at tailgate parties.
"It's hard to get into the sports man-
agementfield without some experience.
The Athletic Department here is ranked
number one by the Gourman Report. It
will give interns a hell of a resume,"
Although the internship is non-pay-
ing, students concentrating in sports
management and communication will
be eligible to receive credit. All intems
will have the opportunity to interact
with coaches, student athletes and ad-
ministrators, Rotche said.
"Going to school at an academic and
athletic powerhouse like Michigan, I
feel I would really be shortchanging
myself if I didn't take part (in the pro-
gram)," Lefebvre said.

Asian American students jam at welcoming
By SARAH KIINO
DAILY STAFF REPORTER
Whether on the dance floor or sim-
ply standing around and socializing,
Asian American students bonded at the
Asian American Association (AAA)
welcome dance in the Union Friday
night. The dance was the first major
event of the year for the group.
"I think that anything that can bring
the Asian American community together
is a big accomplishment," said Ming
Wung, a Business School senior. "It's
important to demonstrate unity on a
campus that is so diverse."
LSA sophomore Mona Kwan said
the purpose of the dance is for students
to meet other people, as well as to sign
up as members of the AAA - a social
and political organization.
"Normally the dances are very suc-
cessful, with 300 to 400 people," she
said, adding that AAA holds several
dances per year.
'Even though you're Asian American, it's hard to
acclimate between two cultures, so the AAA eases this
feeling of being in between two worlds.'

portance of the dance as a way to meet

The AAA also holds cultural and
political events. AAA President Sandy
Yueh said through the Student Advo-
cacy Committee, the AAA holds work-
shops on important issues within the
Asian American community.
"On campus you meet different types
of people, but this is an important way
to meet Asian people, for us to help out
the Asian community and learn about
the different aspects -cultural, social
and political," Shih said.
LSA senior Conrad Chen said the
organization is importantfor Asian unity.
"Itpromotes Asian awareness and helps
people to share their ideas concerning
Asian issues," he said.
The AAA is a part of the United
Asian Organization, and together they
work to expose the campus to Asian

The AAA has a big siblings/little
siblings program, through which first-
year students and sophomores are pro-
vided with junior and senior mentors.
"It's kind of like a family," Kwan
