Offk.e of Community Service Learning
What's an Alternative Break?
Alternative Breaks are weekends and spring breaks
spent living, sharing, and volunteering with other
students and community organizations. These breaks
allow students to build lasting relationships with the
communities they learn from and the group of
students they serve with.
And an Alternative Weekend?
Alternative Weekends are one or two weekends
spent outside of campus working on important
issues through community learning. There will be
pre-weekend orientation and training, on-site
orientation and training, and reflection sessions for
your group following the last weekend. Transporta-
tion, food, and housing are covered by a $15 fee.
(Financial Assistance available)
What's So Good About Alternative Weekend?
Alternative Weekends give participants the chance to
make ties with local community service organizations
(Ann Arbor, Detroit, and Flint)-ties that they will
hopefully pursue long after their AW experience ends.
Alternative Weekend also allows for the opportunity
to get off campus and try something new. t
Can I Really Help?
Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes...YES!!!
Though individual work may not seem as rewarding
as the cause merits, lots of people intent on creating a
student movement can.
Cool, So How Can I Get Involved?
Easy-come to our mass meeting. Or you could stop
by the Project SERVE office, located on the second
floor of the Michigan Union, room 2205 (phone #
936-2437) - its full of friendly faces eager to answer
any questions you may have.

"Lebanese folk singer/lute virtuoso Marcel Khalife has
been called 'the Bob Dylan of the Middle East.' Khalife,
a popular figure in his own country as well as in Europe
and Africa, has carried his message of goodwill indiscrimi-
nately throughout the globe. His repertoire includes mostly
original compositions combining a mix of traditional and
contemporary Middle Eastern sounds and promoting a
central theme of peace and a love of the land. Lebanese
born Khalife has won international acclaim and performs
all over the world.

UAC's Soundstage welcomes
The two met in 6th grade and started singing together
in high school. Originally billed as Sailers and Ray,
the pair adopted the name Indigo Girls during their
undergraduate days at Emory University in Atlanta.
In September of 1992, Rites Of Passage is certified gold
after twelve weeks on Billboard's Top Pop Albums chart
-the fastest Indigo Girls' album to date. Each new album
by Indigo Girls presents new facets of their distinctive
artistry. The Grammy-winning duo's latest Epic release,
Swamp Ophelia, is no exception: Here, Emily Sabers and
Amy Ray have crafted the most musically and lyrically
ambitious album of their nine-year career.

With their new album "Twice Removed," Sloan show that, despite Crash Test Dummies, Canadians can rock.
Continued from page 5
In one of the most pleasant musical
turnarouds in recent history, the
Vancouver group Sloan have totally
revamped their sound. Gone are the
walls of guitar distortion on their debut
"Smeared" which planted them firmly
in the shadow of their illustrious dis-
coverers, Sonic Youth.
Instead, Sloan circa1994 have a
much more stripped down sound with
a more pop/rock vibe than previously
heard. In fact, the band borrows equally
from the Rolling Stones and the Beatles
on such songs as the single "Penpals"
and "I Hate My Generation" and shows
its sensitive side on "I Can Feel It."
Even with four singers/songwriters,
Sloan sounds tight and focused on
"Twice Removed," making it one of
the sleeper hits of the fall record sea-

Student Organization Handbook
As part of the Office of Student Activities and
Leadership's ongoing commitment to supporting
and enabling student organizations, we are very
pleased to announce the availability of our first
Student Organization Handbook. The handbook
is intended for both emerging student leaders and
experienced leaders. Topics such as how to become
a registered/recognized student organization, how
to open a Student Organization Account, and how
to recruit and retain members are covered.
In addition, topics like what tax information all
student organizations need to know, how and where
to get programming funding, a list of University
resources for programming, how and where to
schedule facilities & buses, and what University
policies have particular impact for student groups
Skd.t Organization D i rtwI
Similar to the Student Organization Handbook, the
Student Organization Directory is a valuable resource
to student leaders; however, it is also very useful for
students interested in becoming involved in a student
organization. Student Organizations who have
already registered this fall with MSA will be included.
If your organization hasn't registered this Fall,
then you have until Friday, September 30th to be
included in the directory.
Like our publications, the staff at the Office of
Student Activities and Leadership are here to assist
students and student organizations. Please call us
for an appointment (763-5900), or just stop by
room 2202 in the Michigan Union weekdays
8:00am - 5:00pm.
SWV, lookout.There's alittle com
petition coming your way - Drama-
tically. "Open Invitation" Drama's de-
but release. This trio, composed of
members Malinda Jenkins, Thea
Norman and Regina Craig, can sing.
And the songs of "Open Invitation,"
most of which were written by Gerald
Levert, and in some of which members
of Levert sing background, are defi-
The big plus for the women op
Drama is that they ooze sensuality. The
"ooh's" which start off "Does It Get
Any Better (Part 1)" will have brothas
reminiscing, and "See Me" is so lustful
(for lack of a better word), it makes En
Vogues' "Giving Him Something He
Can Feel" sound like a Mary Poppins
But, sex ain't all "Open Invitation"
is about. "No Games" sounds faintly o
Shai's "Wait for the Day," which ironi-
cally contrasts with these girls lyrical
chastisement of the love games men
play. "Good Man" is a beautiful prayer
for a good man, sung acapella style. At
less than one-and-a-half minutes it is
short, sweet and straight to the point.
Simply put, this CD is hittin'.

a strong female lead actress ever since
Jan Hooks left some three years ago,
and Garofalo has got the talent to pro-
vide the show with some great roles.
The biggest surprise, however, was
Chris Elliott, the David Letterman
lackey who never quite managed t
make "Cabin Boy" household words.
Surely, his "so cute that you want to
punch him" face and dry humor are
welcome experiments, but without
strong writing behind him, this experi-
ment could turn out to be disastrous.
And therein lies the biggest prob-
lemwith the season premiere. The writ-
ing just wasn't funny. Steve Martin
(what a surprise - hasn't he hoste
close to 50 times by now?) gave a
unusually boring monologue about
soup; the highlight of an O.J. Simpson
trial sketch was Mike Myers as Judge
Lance Ito; and other sketches about
ugly babies and candy bar commercial
jingles were completely lifeless.
Mike Myers is obviously the show's
strongest character comedian, so why
was he only in three sketches?
Garofalo's and Elliot's presences we
completely wasted. One good move
was to replace Kevin Nealon on the
Weekend Update. He bombed over the
last two years. But the obvious choice
to replace him was Spade, yet SNL
went with Norm McDonald who was
even worse than Nealon.
Writing only seems to be part of the
problem, however. Lorne Michaels has
got to know something is wrong wit
the current show, yet he keeps saying
he plans on producing Saturday Night
until the end of his contract - in five
years. His persistence in dragging the
show on may be creating tension on the
set. We can only hope that Saturday
