Thousands of credit cards were
worn thin this weekend when parents
visited the University's campus --

Matt Blosl, an LSA first-year stu-
dent from Kalamazoo, said his par-
ents humiliated him during the pre-
football game tailgate with overzeal-
ous displays of maize and blue spirit.
"When the band was playing, they
were going crazy," he said. "I was
really embarrassed because I was with
a bunch of my friends."
Students said their parents enjoyed
being back on campus, but showed
that a lot has changed since they were
"My mom was really excited for
the game. She was freaking out," said
ISA first-year student Mike Sweeney,
whose parents came from Chicago.
Kate Calabresa, an ISA first-year
student from Libertyville, Ill., said
she enjoyed her parents' visit.
"I gave them a walking tour of the
Diag and all of the nice buildings and
the Union," she said. "They had a
good time. They were gladthey came."
Calabresa said she did not attend
the events planned by the Student
Alumni Council (SAC) because she
#wanted freedom to do what she chose
during her parents' two-day stay.
"Friday night we saw Garrison
Keillor and we went to the game on
Saturday and we went shopping on
Sunday," she said, adding that many
activities were quite expensive.
SAC members planned an array of
activities centering around the theme
"UnforgettaBLUE ... that's how it
will be." Friday evening featured lec-
tures and performances and
Saturday's main event was a pre-game
tailgate party. Sunday brunch was

NEAR DALY WATERS, Austra-
lia - After more than nine hours of
racing through the sun-scorched Aus-
tralian outback, the University's
Maize and Blue solar car team pulled
over and set up camp 362 miles from
the Darwin starting line.
Team members chose the spot for
its exposure to the brutal sun, which
charges the car's battery.
Exhausted but jubilant, the team
settled down to go to bed. After day
one of the World Solar Challenge,
Maize and Blue was in seventh place
overall, and ahead of all other Ameri-
