Deihas 15 years o 'ing' i~ : .4

By Sarah Volarc
For The Daily
When Zingerman's customers walk
in the door, they are greeted with the
smell of fresh bread, many different
cheeses, exotic oils, and smoked fish.
And they've been coming for 15 years.
Tomorrow, Zingerman's Deli will
celebrate its 15th anniversary, with a
day long party featuring prizes, bal-
loons, and cake.
Ari Weinzweig and Paul Saginaw,
the deli's owners, said they wanted to
build a restaurant where one can expe-
rience the finer delicacies of the taste
buds for a reasonable price.
Weinzweig said he hoped for an
environment where customers could
"walk in the door in jeans, have won-
derful food for under 10 dollars and sit
in a comfortable atmosphere."
Zingerman's Deli is rated the fourth
best restaurant in the state of Michigan,
in a survey taken by Tim Zagat, pub-
lisher of the Zagat Survey. Other restau-
rants mentioned in this rating were
white tablecloth restaurants that offered
food at $40 a plate, Weinzweig said.
"Good food isn't cheap. Life is short
and our goal is to make it more enjoy-
able," Weinzweig said. "Going to
Zingerman's is a much shorter trip than
flying to Europe."
Much of the food is imported from
regions throughout Europe.
Weinzweig said Zingerman's uses
"turn of the century bread recipes
and most of the cheeses are farm
house cheeses imported from Spain

and Italy.
Another pride of the deli is the elab-
orate selection of European teas. A sign
above the self-service coffee and tea
station reads, "The only taste that
counts is yours! Ask for a taste today!"
From smoked salmon to whitefish
salad to several types of cheeses, sam-
ples are available to anyone who asks.
"Anyone can buy two ounces of any-
thing in the store, no matter what it is,"
Weinzweig said. "We want to connect
people with food:'
Weinzweig and Saginaw opened the
deli in 1982. An outline of the deli's goals
include the desire to form "a one-of-a-
kind delicatessen" that is "connected to
its community," gives "enjoyable ser-
vice" and is "a place that (is) fun to shop"
Employees said this statement has
remained true since opening day.
Dan Kraepel, one of the deli's
employees, said employees are treated
very well at Zingerman's.
"Working here is great, awesome,"
Kraepel said. "The atmosphere is live-
ly and energetic ... the people are great
to work with."
Weinzweig's main philosophy is
"what we can do for our clientele is a
never-ending process."
Jennifer, an Ypsilanti resident who did
not want her last name published, said no
two visits to Zingerman's are the same.
"I have been here quite a few times
and there are so many things to choose
from, I never know what to get' "she said.
"Everything I have had so far is great. I
also love the homey atmosphere"

LSA senior and Zingerman's regular
Alexis Ramsey said eating at the deli
can be as good as springing for a plane
ticket to Europe.
"This is by far the best deli I have ever
been to. I usually get parma-prosciutto,
which is cured ham imported from Italy"
Ramsey said. "I feel like I am walking
the streets of Italy when I eat this meal"
Students make up part of
Zingerman's clientele, along with per-
manent Ann Arbor residents.
Weinzweig said the deli has become an
integral part of the city and they are
lucky to be here in this "special place."
Employees said the anniversary cele-
bration will give the deli a chance to say
thanks to customers.
"Since the success of the deli is based
on the customers in the community, we
are going to be thanking the community
tomorrow," said Zingerman's employee
Lynn Fiorentino. "We will be giving
away 15 gifts to 15 people, 15 minutes
after each hour from 7a.m.-9p.m."

LSA senior Sarah Fisher said she wasn't sure
what she would have done if she hadn't been
accepted to law school. "I guess I would've looked
for a job and re-applied next year? she said.
LSA peer advisor and senior Maitreya Coffey's
wait is also over.
"I'm one of the lucky and relieved few who
knows where I'm going next year," Coffey said.
"Students come into our office and say, 'Tell e
how to do it," she said. "They want advice from
people with first-hand experience.
Miller said that while it is like "waiting for the
jury to decide:' the important thing is to keep
everything in perspective.

Graduating students cope with future

By Kerry Klaus
Daily Staff Reporter
The clock is ticking.
As graduation approaches, many University
seniors await word that they have been accepted to
graduate and professional school programs. As
time is running out to solidify plans, students are
coping with many anxieties about the future.
Director of LSA Academic Advising Louis Rice
said he has dealt with these concerns before.
"One of the things you can do for students is
advise them to make inquiries, just to see where
they are in the process:' he said. "It's helpful to
know where you stand"
After all of the tests, applications and interviews,

many students find they waited in vain and have to
rethink their post-college plans.
"You have to discuss the process of reapplication
with students who don't get accepted but are very
serious about their particular field," Rice said.
LSA senior Mark Pohlman is still in limbo after
applying to several medical schools.
"I've been accepted to one, but there's still pres-
sure because the one I've been accepted to isn't my
top choice," Pohlman said. "I'm excited to find out
about the others, but I'm sick of waiting."
According to a graduate school guide produced
by Kaplan and Newsweek, medical school applica-
tions have been on the rise since 1980, while law
school applications have declined since 1991. The

guide reports that the overall scene is still "very
crowded," with graduate student enrollment at 1.2
million in 1994.
"I think there's tremendous competition for med-
ical school," Pohlman said. "I know people who've
been rejected with 3.8 grade point averages."
Norm Miller, director of Excel Test Preparation
on South University Avenue, agreed. "The medical
schools may be some of the most nail-biting" he
said.
Miller said the best thing for students to do is take
an active role in coming up with good alternatives.
"The big concern with most people is how to
efficiently come up with a plan B for the following
year ... just in case you never hear the right mes-

Cancer week to host
preventive activiteS

By Brian Campbl
Daily Staff Reporter
The onset of cancer later in life can be
prevented if people make healthy
lifestyle choices while they're young.
This is the message student activists
hope to spread through Cancer
Awareness Week, which begins tomor-
row with sporting events at the Central
Campus Recreation Building that
demonstrate the benefits of exercise in
fighting the disease.
Cancer Awareness Week, which offers
fund-raising events through Tuesday, is
organized by University Students
Against Cancer, with assistance from the
American Cancer Society.
LSA senior Jenny Irini, a co-chair of
the week's planning committee, said she
is enthusiastic about the week and wants
students to learn more about the disease.
"We're very excited about it," Irini
said. "We're trying to raise awareness
and we hope a lot of people will get
involved."
Cover charges from the St. Patricks'
Day party at Rick's American Cafe on
Sunday night will be donated to the
American Cancer Society, which will be
accepting donations at each of the events.
Lori Schram, LSA senior and USAC
member, said she expects a high turnout
for the week's events.
"They're terrific events," Schram said.
"We're putting up information on the
Diag and in the Fishbowl. We've got fly-
ers up all over the place."
Irini said that while most students are
not at risk of getting cancer, they can
avoid contracting the disease when
they're older by taking preventive mea-

"We're aware that for students our age
that there isn't that great of risk, but what
they do today will impact their chances
of getting it in the future: Irani said.
"There is the genetic component, but
there is a lot they can do for prevention."
Monday's events include a Moonwalk
on the Diag and a speech by Dr. Vic
Strecher from the Comprehensive
Cancer Center concerning the impact of
recent technologies in treating cancer.
USAC Vice President and LSA junior
Debbi Khasnabin said Strecher's speech
will emphasize prevention and encourage
college students to avoid cancer risks.
"We think this will really cater to
young people," Khasnabin said. "We
hope that it will have a big impact on stu-
dents"
Tuesday's events will focus on breast
cancer, concluding with a candlelight
vigil on the Diag.
An estimated 547,000 deaths resulted
from cancer last year, according to the
World Almanac.
