Chcrry said. "We usually go to our
sorority house because it's homecoming
weekend there, too."
Cherry and Mather-Ryding said they
were both members of the first female
checrleading squad and enjoyed seeing
friends from their squad this weekend.
Wather-Ryding said a variety of
mini-reunions during football season
help make the official homecoming
weekend a lot less crowded.
". know logistically it would be a
nightmare to have only one weekend
(for reunions)," Mather-Ryding said.
"There are hundreds of thousands of
alumni. When you have a smaller get-
together, it's much easier to deal with."
Despite the large crowds and small
ecoming gatherings every football
Saturday, 1992 alumna Jennifer Ruddy
said homecoming "is something special."
-Ruddy, who lives in Texas, said she
decided to attend homecoming while
looking through an alumni magazine.
Ruddy said the homecoming football
game is special because it is attended by
more than just "the people that live here
and go every weekend."
"This was special because people who
live here anymore are here," Ruddy
sad. "We enjoy visiting Ann Arbor and
seeing the 'M' is back in the Diag."
Melinda Kerr, who graduated in
1979, is one of many alumni who said
they try to attend the homecoming foot-
ball game every year.
"I think we have a lot of loyal follow-
ers ... that can only enhance the crowd,"
Many alumni said the large crowds
add to the homecoming experience.
"The more people, the more of a
party atmosphere there is," said Ronald
Kozlowski, whose son is a sophomore.
But some alumni believe homecoming
is no longer a big event for students.
"I think the student body is less enthu-
siastic," said 1953 alumna Dorothy
Reister, adding that she recalled activities
such as parades, floats and Michi-gras.
"The festivities went on for almost a
week in the student body."
Jack Carlson has been attending
homecomings for 42 years, even though
he's not an alumnus.
"I used to come to all the games back
in 1955," said Carlson, whose father and
sister are University alumni and whose
daughter is currently a sophomore.
Carlson, who attended his first
homecoming when he was 7 years old,
said "the tradition is the same."
"(The University community) doesn't
decorate as much as they used to,"
Carlson said. "We used to be able to
walk or drive around and see the displays
in front of fraternity houses or dorms.
Now, people are taken in by all the things
that have to be done, like tailgating."
The 64th annual Mudbowl game
marked the homecoming weekend at
the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity.
"Sixty-four years ago, there was a
huge rain storm and the front yard was
flooded." said Engineering sophomore
Dave Stefani, explaining how the tradi-
tion began. "Some members of the
house challenged members of Phi Delta
1 lit ito play because it was all muddy."
T o mudhowl games are played on
homecoming Saturday at the fraternity,
the first between Sigma Alpha Epsilon
and Phi Delta Theta and second between
two "randomly selected" sororities, said
Michael Blanchard, who coached Delta
Delta Delta, one of the sororities chosen
this year. Chi Omega was the other soror-
ity picked for the game.
"It's a big production," said Blanchard,
an LSA sophomore. "We dug up the
front yard with shovels and the fire
department came on Thursday and on the
morning of the game and hosed (the
yard) down with their trucks."
Blanchard said that while alumni
don't play in the game, about 20 came
to watch from the sidelines.
Blanchard said there are no penalties
during the games, which means that it "is
the same every year - it's very rough."
The sororities played during the
Mudbowl's halftime with the game ended
in a controversial tie.
"It's a very competitive rivalry." said
Tri-Delt member Andrea Korotkin.

Art and Architecture alumni shed
their maize and blue in favor of cos- t
tumes ranging from aliens to masquer-
ade masks and tuxedos for the school's
weekend reunion and masquerade ball.
The reunion weekend revives a tradi-
tion that Art and Architecture Dean
Allen Samuels said he hopes to renew
as a yearly event.
"This weekend is starting up a tradi-
tion from 12 to 15 years ago," Samuels
said. "In the future, we'd like to get the
students more involved. The real spirit
is to get the alumni involved with the
school and the students."
The reunion included Saturday
night's ball, a welcoming reception for
the alumni and workshops hosted by
current School of Art and Architecture
professors. These workshops gave the
former students a taste of the new direc-
tions art is taking, including the fusion
of new technology and more traditional
forms of expression.
On Saturday, the school's alumni
took a bus tour of the faculty studios on

Besides school-related perks, Utah also presents another
enticement for Machen. Utah's campus is located in Salt Lake
City, the scheduled host of the 2002 Winter Olympic Games.
The Olympic village will be stationed in residence halls and
the university will be one of the game's major sponsors.
"Bernie will be actively involved in the hosting of the 2002
Olympics," Anderton said.
School of Dentistry Dean William Kotowicz said Machen's
problem-solving skills enabled him to be a great leader at the
University and should ensure him success at Utah.

Band director David Swain, who has
been performing for more than 25
years, said he remembered playing at
the school back in another era.
"The last time I played a gig here at
the Art school for Halloween, it was in
the early '70s and I was in a band called
Destroy All Monsters," Swain said.
"That was a little more rowdy and we
definitely weren't wearing tuxes."
"He did a wonderful job at the Dentistry School during the
period he was there. He rebuilt a research foundation,'
Kotowicz said. "We instituted a new curriculum and we also
improved our basic core agenda."
University Provost Nancy Cantor said Machen most likely
will have some adjusting to do when he gets to Utah, but she
said he will-learn quickly.
"It is always challenging to get to know the culture of a
new university" Cantor said. "There are many facets of the
University of Michigan that will transfer to there. He certain-
ly will be well positioned to take this on."
