' athletics earns NCAA certification

By Chris Metinko
Daily Staff Reporter
The University's Department of Intercollegiate
Athletics recently earned official certification
from the National Collegiate Athletic Association
after an intensive three-year review of its athletic
operations.
"The purpose (of the certification) is to ensure
integrity in the institution's athletics operations
and to assist athletics departments in improving
their programs," said Chasni Briggans, an NCAA
spokesperson.
The NCAA officially announced the certifica-
tion Aug. 21.
The NCAA sets standards for four basic operat-
ing principles in athletic programs, including com-
mitment to rules compliance, academic integrity,
fiscal integrity and commitment to equity.
Certificationby the NCAA means that the institu-
tion's athletic department is operating in substan-
tial conformity with these principles.
Keith Molin, senior associate director of athlet-
ics at the University, says the process has an appro-
priate place in intercollegiate athletics.
"I happen to like the certification process,"

Molin said. "It causes an institution to take a long instead of seeing the student athletes in select acad-

Education Prof. Percy Bates, a member of the Molin blamed inconsistent measurement of the
self-study committee, said the committee would like certification process start-up date for the delay in
to see a "greater enrollment in other academic units" certification. The University regards the process of

choosing the self-study committee as a step in cer-
tification. H owever, most other schools measure
the certification period from the first meeting of
the self-staady committee.
Bates said the process is good for a school
because it brings together a broad range of people
from within the University and shows them more
clearly the relationship between academics and
athletics.
"f personally am convinced it was a worthwhile
experience," Bates said.
Bates said his opinion about NCAA certifica-
tion has changed since he first heard about the
process.
"When we (the University) first started, at that
time we were not sure it would be a worthwhile
opportunity," said Bates, who then got to see the
process take place at two other institutions and
now has changed his opinion.
All 307 Division I schools must complete
their certification processes by 1998. Currently
142 institutions have been certified and one
school has been certified with conditions,
meaning they did not reach the standards in all
of the categories.

"U' students cycle
cross-country

ETwoPi Kappa Phi
members raised $8,000
for charity
By Kristen Wright
For the Daily
Bicycling 3,500 miles may not
sound like an ideal summer vacation.
But in an effort to raise money for
charity two campus Pi Kappa Phi fra-
ternity brothers spent their summer
months cycling from San Francisco to
Washington, D.C., covering a distance
of 3,500 miles and averaging 75 miles
daily.
Andy Lemanski, an LSA senior and
Pi Kappa Phi member, and Chris
Bondi, Pi Kappa Phi president and also
an LSA senior, were chosen to partici-
pate in the annual Journey of Hope.
The program aims to increase sensi-
tivity toward disabled individuals and
to further awareness of their needs.
Cyclists bike 75 miles each day and
interact with disabled individuals dur-
ing the journey.
"The honor is that they raised money
to do something that you couldn't pay
most people to do," said Chad Coltrane,
director of special events for PUSH, the
group that sponsors the Journey of
Hope program.. "It was really a selfless
project"
Each year, members of Pi Kappa
Phi fraternity from universities nation-
wide apply to participate in what is

known as the "Journey of Hope," the
fraternity's philanthropical effort.
"You can bike across the country. It
just takes more time, just as people
with disabilities can do anything, but it
may take more time," Lemanski said.
Lemanski said the trip across the
country is a symbol of the type of chal-
lenge disabled people can meet.
In order to qualify for the Journey of
Hope, each cyclist raised $4,000. Both
Bondi and Lemanski raised the money
within five or six months.
The funds go to improving wheel-
chair accessibility in public facilities,
as well as aiding educational programs
to promote public awareness of dis-
abilities.
Bondi and Lemanski sent letters
explaining the Journey of Hope and its
purpose to friends, family, businesses
and organizations they thought would
contribute.
An average day for Bondi and
Lemanski would begin at five or six in
the morning. After eating breakfast
and packing, it was time to hit the
road.
The two fraternity brothers cycled an
average of six to eight hours per day,
depending on the terrain of the area.
Although both Bondi and
Lemanski physically trained on their
own to prepare for the journey, they
said that at first it was necessary to
take short breaks every 10 minutes.
But after some time, they were able

the endure 30-40 minutes of continu-
ous riding.
Bondi and Lemanski attended activ-
ities with the handicapped every night.
The cyclists participated in activities
that they say have changed their out-
looks on life. Events included dances,
ice-cream socials, basketball games
and visits to hospitals and camps for
the disabled.
"The Journey of Hope has changed
my perspective on life. I realize how
lucky I am to be where I am and to be

able to walk outside, play basketball,
and the things that people take for
granted," Lemanski said.
For Bondi, the close contact with the
handicapped was awkward at first.
"It taught me that that which we
worry about in our everyday lives
doesn't seem very significant to me
anymore," Bondi said.
Two teams of 28 cyclists and six
crew members, whose responsibilities
included the more business-related
aspects of the trip, began their journey

on June 8.
The cyclists usually slept in high
school gyms across the country.
Occasionally, hotels and churches
would also provide accommodations
for the group.
PUSH America, founded by Pi
Kappa Phi in 1977, sponsors the
Journey of Hope and other programs
that target the same purpose. Pi Kappa
Phi members at universities across the
country have raised more than $3 mil-
lion since PUSH's founding.

'U' students modeled for
Playboy, will autograph issues

I

By Susan T. Port
Daily Staff Reporter
Three University students shed their
clothes and smiled for the cameras last
month for the October installment of
Playboy magazine.
"Girls of the Big 10;' hit newsstands
Tuesday, featuring 40 students from
Big 10 universities.
Today two of the three University
students who posed, LSA senior
Transley Webb and Darby Dickinson,
and Music senior Margret Chmiel plan
to meet the public and autograph copies
of this month's Playboy from 3 to 5 p.m.
at Stadium Party Shoppe on West
Stadium Boulevard. This time, howev-
er, they will be fully clothed.
Manager Nabil Georges said the party
store did not solicit their appearance.
"Playboy came after us" Georges
said. "We didn't ask them."
Georges said the event is not one
designed to promote the store or area,
but should be more like a publicity

"This is not for
the community:
it's just
business."

stunt.
"Basically, this is just advertising,"
Georges said. "This is not for the com-
munity; it's just business."
Playboy publicist Karen Ring
Borgstrom said she was very pleased
with the girls chosen from the University
"The girls will always look back
fondly,' Borgstrom said. "One girl from
Ohio State said when she is a granny
she will show the magazine to her
grandchildren."
Borgstrom said the girls who posed

are very career-minded.
"The girls are very serious about
their studies," Borgstrom said. "Posing
for Playboy is just a fluke for them."
Georges said he expects a good
turnout for today's event.
"All kinds of people will come today,
but mostly they will be men," Georges
said.
But even some students who were
excited by the maize and blue being
represented in the pages of Playboy said
they would not line up for an autograph.
"It is awesome that someone would
do that - I don't mind the girls posing
at all;' said LSA first-year student
Bryan Smith. "It's not a bad thing. But
I wouldn't go out of my way to meet
them."
Georges said there has been some
negative reactions to the appearance of
Playboy representatives in Ann Arbor.
"One gentlemen came in and was
upset about kids seeing it," Georges
said. "Kids are going to be in school."
