)We're full, Tompkins said. "We've
accommodated most students on the
housing waiting list, taking the new stu-
EMT J's housing office knew the class
sizes would increase, she said.
"We've expected this growth rate
because of the birth rate in the late '70s
and early '80s," Tompkins said.

While Tompkins said EMU may
look into building new residence
halls, other Michigan schools face
"We are physically running out of
classroom space," said Andy Beachnau,
director of Housing at Grand Valley
State University. "Since I started (in
1982), the student body has grown from
4,000 to about 16,700."
Oespite the large incoming class this
year, Grand Valley has also managed to
provide 99 to 100 percent of the first-
year students with housing.
Jon Schaffer, Ferris State's associate
director of housing, also reported school
housing as full.
"This year, the growing number of
freshmen seems to be a state and
region-wide trend," Schaffer said. "In
the first couple weeks of school we
found spaces for everyone."
Ferris students looking for housing
had to temporarily share rooms with
students in singles.The students in the
singles were rewarded with $100 book-
store gill certificates.
In the first few weeks of class, many
schools do not have housing for every-
one, Schaffer said.
Some students are admitted to multi-
ple schools and decide to attend one uni-
versity at the last minute. Consequently,
housing departments are left in the dark
at the beginning of the term.
In the first few weeks, housing offi-
cials find these empty spaces in the res-
idence halls and fill them as soon as
possible. Other Michigan schools notice
the growing number of entering students
but have not reported any problems at all.
Janeece Hayes, Programming
Coordinator for University Housing at
Oakland University, was also pleased
with Oakland's current housing state of
"We're not overcrowded, and every-
one is accommodated," Hayes said.
"The number of freshmen is going up
and our goal is to build more housing.

Weekends kicks off
with mass meeting tonight
By Josh Kroot
For the Daily
Students interested in participating in Alternative
Weekends, can learn more about the community ser-
vice program at a mass meeting tonight at 5 p.m. in
Aud. 2 of the Modem Languages Building.
Alternative Weekends is a branch of Project
SERVE's Alternative Breaks program, which also
organizes Alternative Spring Break.
"One of the goals of Alternative Weekends is to focus
on the local communities," said David Waterhouse, co-
director of Project SERVE. "We do a lot of volunteer
work in Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti and Detroit."
For eight years, Project SERVE, the University's on-
campus community service organization, has been
leading community service trips to sites across the
country, through their popular spring break program.
Through this program, participants can spend a
week working with AIDS patients in New York, help-
ing Haitian refugees in Miami, or volunteering for the
United Farm Workers Union in San Juan.
For those not willing to commit their entire spring
vacation to community service, Project SERVE offers
the Alternative Weekends program, in which students
spend three to four weekends per semester volunteer-
ing at sites throughout the Midwest.
Tonight's mass meeting will kick ofH the sixth year
of the program, which in the past had sites at a camp
for the disabled in Greenville, Michigan and a pro-
gram in Detroit that assists elderly people.
This year, the program will expand to include sites
in Chicago and Ohio. More than 200 students partici-
pated last year, and program organi/ers say that num-
ber could double this year.
Alternative Weekends was formed in 1992 by stu-
dents who had participated in Alternative Spring lreak
and wanted a more localized program that would allow
them to volunteer throughout the school year.
Unlike Alternative Spring Break, which requires a
year-long commitment, participants in Alternative
Weekends volunteer their time on a per-semestcr basis.
Volunteers are grouped into teams of about 12 people.
Each team focuses on a specific site for the entire
semester, and team members are expected to atteind all
of the monthly site visits. In addition, participants
attend bi-weekly meetings to plan upcoming trips. Each
volunteer is also expected to raise S100 for their site.
"One of the great things about Alternative
Weekends is the total immersion of the volunteers at a
single sight' said Greg Garza, an Engineering sopho-
more who has participated in both Alternative
Weekends and Alternative Spring Break. "Alternative,
Weekends actually builds better bonds between people
than Alternative Spring Break because you work with
the same people every month.
"The program allows students to get out of Ann
Arbor for a while and experience the rest of the
world," said LSA sophomore Kenny Miller, who vol-
unteered last year with Project Save, a program that
assists the elderly in Detroit.
"I loved talking to the elderly," Miller said. "They
always had great stories. You gain strong relationships
working with Alternative Weekends."
As the program continues to expand, organizers are
looking to involve more members of the University
"We are trying to get as many people involved as
possible, including graduate students and teachers,"
said LSA junior Jen Fahner, a member of the
Alternative Weekends leadership team.
