The Michigan Daily - Bestof Ann Ator 1999
A2 Best MSA Representative
Chopp: MSA r eachn out to
stdets wllCOntiue to do SO :::

The Arb (Best Place for a Secret
Rendezvous, Best Place to go in an
Altered State) If you want to get
laid without the prying eyes of
roommates, take a few more tokes
from the old one-hitter or just enjoy
being drunk for a little while longer
without going home - the Arb is
the place to be. Sure it's illegal after
9 p.m., but late on weekend nights
when the weather's warm you have
to work hard to avoid the hundreds
and hundreds of University students
who crowd every corner of the Ann
Arbor's splendid tribute to nature.
Class (Best Place to Meet a Mate)
"So, you think this lecture is really
boring too, huh. Do you like stuff
too or just think all things are bor-
ing?" Sounds like an auspicious
rock upon which to build your rela-
tionship church. Or maybe it's just
the fact that class locks us all in a
room for at least 50 minutes with at
least 20 other horny people our own
age. You could even say it's like
shooting fish in a barrel - or you
could say finding a mate is never
easy and try banter such as that
already suggested.

Going to the Movies (Best First
Date) Woah, I guess those sixth-
graders are ready for college after
all. Then again, maybe they aren't.
But it's true that the dating scene
back then is much like the dating
scene now - first-daters love the
back of the movie theater. And
movies are great for blind dates,
too, because the theater is always
dark so if he or she is ugly, you
don't have to see their face. Finally,
if you really like them, you can
spend your time in the dark getting
a head start on making out.
The Grad Library Stacks (Best
Place for Public Sex) Past a certain
hour of the night in the stacks you
have to literally step over all the
couples getting it on while you look
for the perfect book on how barrier
physics can be fun and exciting.
Apparently the word has already
gotten out about this, so maybe the
collective campus as a whole should
start a new trend and have sex in the
Frieze Building or something.
Remember one thing, however:
Public sex requires a minimum of
two people: With two people it's a

little illegal and cute, with only one
person its just plain demented and
"Nice shoes.. wanna fuck?"
(Best Pick Up Line) Well, that pret-
ty much says it all, right there ..
"No." (Best Rejection Line)
Short and sweet. Cameron first
made it cool during his 10-minute
phony phone call to Edward
Rooney in the movie we all grew up
loving. Mr. Fry's spirit now lives in
a one-word rejection line more
effective than the most eloquent of
"Shakespeare in Love" (Best
Date Movie) Unlike the scene at the
Oscars, here you won't see Gwyneth
Paltrow sob for 10 minutes or a host
of giddy producers crowd the stage
thanking everyone that made this
movie possible. Still, it is nice to
know that most of the students on
campus find romantic inspiration in
a story that happened four centuries
ago and thousands of miles away.
The current Queen Elizabeth is not
the one who appears in the movie,
for those of you not up on your
British history.
Swing Dancing (Best Unusual
Date) Now that they made a movie
about it, everyone is hip to the
scene. Whether you're an old pro on
the hardwood or just a greenhorn in
wingtips or saddleshoes, the hep-
cats always welcome couples with
good attitudes and friendly faces.

The LSA sophomore
says election defeat
won't stifle her energy
By Jewel Gopwani
Daily Arts Writer
It's not easy trying to be wonder-
woman, and former Michigan
Student Assembly Vice President
Sarah Chopp, who has devoted a
great deal of her time to the assembly,
was rewarded for her efforts to be a
dedicated and active member of the
University's student government.
After hearing that she was voted
best MSA representative, Chopp
said she appreciated the recogni-
tion for her work on the assembly.
With almost two years of Michigan
Student Assembly experience under
her belt, Sarah Chopp was voted best
assembly representative.
Chopp, who left her position as
vice president on Tuesday, charac-
terized her time on the assembly as
a period where women and minori-
ties shared a greater voice. She also
said she is proud MSA opened up
more, making a greater effort to
represent the entire student body.
The issue of female representation
was important to Chopp right off the
bat. "There were very few women on
the assembly," Chopp said. "I was
confronted with a lot of sexism."
Chopp, who the received the highest
number of votes during the 1997 MSA
Fall election, added that earning respect
as a young female assembly representa-

tive from other members of MSA was
important to her.
As her time on the assembly pro-
gressed, Chopp said, "the demograph-
ics of the assembly changed," adding
that more women and people of diverse
racial backgrounds have a significant
influence on MSA.
Addressing the current state of
the, assembly, Chopp said she
believes solid work has already
been accomplished.
"We're moving in the right
direction in terms of diverse repre-
sentation and having people from
different ideolog-
ical back-
grounds." "I was c
Chopp's tenure
on the assembly with a to
includes serving
as vice chair of sexism.'

alongside then
LSA rep. Trent Thompson, who
served as president of the assembly
until last Tuesday.
Although Chopp was defeated in
the race for MSA president last
month, she plans to keep herself
busy with the numerous other orga-
nizations on and off of campus.
A member of Hillel, Chopp said
the Jewish faith is an important
part of her life. At the MSA meet-
ing last Tuesday, Chopp gave her
farewell speech a week early
because she would have to miss this


week's transition meeting.
There Chopp said, for her few
things come before MSA and her
religion is one of them.
Chopp was also the associate editor
for Consider Magazine, published by
Hillel and the Residence Hall
She is a member of the executive
board of the Nation's Student
Partnership, which is an organization
that attempts to find jobs for homeless
people across the country.
On top of all of her work on student
groups, Chopp has already painted a
distinct portrait
for her future.
)nfronted Double majoring
in economics
f of and political sci-
ence, Chopp
said she wants to
major in both
- Sarah Chopp international
A Representative trade and inter-
national law.
Chopp explained that after she grad-
uates, she would like to work with cor-
porations who have workers in under-
developed countries and figure out
plans where the corporations can max-
imize its profit without compromising
human rights.
Chopp said that she would like to
travel and is very interested in busi-
ness. With her work at the
University and on the assembly, she
is currently working towards her
goals of trying to change the world,
one step at a time.
