When You're Considering an
Internship in Information
Technology,
Consider One More Thing.
Consider the investment banking firm that is
an international leader in virtually every field
of investment and finance. Where leading
edge information technology is at the center
of the firm's growth and success. Where you
are given the chance to participate in a chal-
lenging internship position which may include
developing, maintaining and monitoring glo-
bal computer systems and telecommunication
networks. Where interns get to work along-
side the most highly accomplished informa-
tion technology and investment banking pro-
fessionals. And consider the firm where an
emphasis on teamwork, individual responsi-
bility, creativity and initiative means that in-
terns play an integral role in a dynamic global
financial organization.
In short, consider the
Information Technology Department at Goldman Sachs.

Dental employees continue protest against 'U'
Several protesters, including members of the National Women's Rights Organizing Coalition, march from the Diag to
the School of Dentistry yesterday afternoon. The march protests of the December firing of three Dental School
employees for what they call "racist" reasons. The three have filed a $1-million lawsuit against the University to ask S
for their reinstatement and the firing of their supervisor.

For the Daily
Top University administrators vis-
ited Couzens Hall last night for a
"fireside chat," to hear feedback from
students in the Women In Science
and Engineering program.
University President James J.
Duderstadt and Vice President for
Student Affairs Maureen A. Hartford
spoke with the group of 30 students
who assembled at 7 p.m. in the front
lounge of Couzens, where the partici-
pants are housed.
Duderstadt and Hartford reminded
the all-female group of the importance
of their presence at the University.
"Ithas been clearthatthe needs foran
educated public in science and technol-
ogy are intense for this nation, and they
will only be met by encouraging more
women and more underrepresented mi-

norities to go into the sciences," said
Duderstadt, who has a doctorate degree
in nuclear engineering.
WISE started in 1993 as an ex-
periment. Twenty-two students re-
turned to the program, and live to-
gether in one wing, with the new
freshman participants.
Some students said there was nega-
tive feedback by male engineering
students. They added that some male
students felt "threatened" by the gen-
der exclusive program.
Duderstadt said the program's fo-
cus is not to alienate. He pointed out
that women work well together and
support each other better than men do.
He related a recent study of Uni-
versity engineering students that
found "little tension between genders
in early years, but in later years more
tensions were revealed."

Hartford, who was admitted in
1966 to the first co-ed class at Univer-
sity of North Carolina, said she espe-
cially favors living and learning pro-
grams.
The successes of other living and
learning groups encourage the forma-
tion of similar programs. East
Quadrangle's Residential College,
Mary Markley Hall's 21st Century
Program and Alice Lloyd Hall's Pilot
Program are all successful examples.
Hartford said that by 1996, the
administration hopes to add more liv-
ing and learning programs for in-com-
ing first-year students. "The pro-
grams bridge across different majors.
A UROP (Undergraduate Research
Oppurtunities Program) group or a
community service group would
thrive, because they are areas that
Michigan students are interested in."

In an attempt to increase commu-
nication between representatives and
their constituents, the Michigan Stu-
dent Assembly is organizing a series
of events designed to boost student
interest.
With elections for president and
vice president approaching in March,
MSA hopes to avoid the usual late
campaign blitz and instead to begin
publicizing early.
"There's usually those three weeks
before the elections that are a big push
towards the students," said Fiona
Rose, the MSA vice chair of commu-
nications. "We're looking to get stu-
dents into government, not just to get
them to the polls."
One of the largestprograms sched-
uled for the upcoming months is a
plan of dorm outreach, called "Dorm
Storm." Through open meetings and
suggestion boxes, students will have
the opportunity to discuss their own
concerns.
"Students naturally just don't want

to get involved. The way it works now
is that the kids come to us. Starting
now, though, we'll be going into the
dorms all over campus and actually
selling people on the idea of MSA,"
Rose said.
The attempt to reach first-year stu-
dents living in the dormitories will be
continued through an MSA orienta-
tion presentation, which is currently
in the planning stages. The program is
expected to begin this summer.
MSA communication chair Joe
Cox hopes to inform incoming stu-
dents of the assembly's role at the
University.
"Basically the juniors and seniors
right now are on their way out, so
we're trying to reach the new students
coming in," Cox said.
One of the goals for the orienta-
tion program is to revamp the
assembly's image as a distant group
that does not affect students.
"One of our biggest concerns is
that students are apathetic because
MSA is seen as an amorphous entity
that eats up their money and doesn't

do anything for them," Cox said.
In addition to advertising more
about MSA, the representatives plan
to make themselves accessible to the
students. Office hours will be moved
to locations that are more convenient
for the constituents, like the Michi-
gan Union and in Amer's deli.
"We want to go out to the constitu-
ents. Fora lot of people, Central Cam-
pus is not very convenient," Rose
said. "So now, the Business School
representatives will hold office hours
near the B-School, and the Engineer-
ing reps will meet on North Campus."
Currently, 36 of 41 representa-
tives are signed up to hold office
hours.
The publicity push also includes a
new plan to air MSA meetings on the
local student television station, which
is available on cable stations in resi-
dence halls. WOLV-TV will air the
Tuesday night meetings.,
"Any sortof media will help MSA.
Even if students only tune in for five
or 15 minutes they will learn some-
thing about us," Cox said.
