With former New Jersey senator Bill Bradley
and Arizona Sen. John McCain now officially out
of the 2000 presidential campaign, the future is
unclear for campus student groups supporting the
two former candidates.
Bradley announced his withdrawal from the race
yesterday, two days after he failed to win a single
state in the 13 Super Tuesday primaries and two
days before the Michigan Democratic caucuses.
McCain also announced his effective withdraw-
al yesterday after he too failed to produce enough
Super Iuesday victories. In order to stay in the
race McCain said he needed to win in California,
New York or Ohio,, but Texas Gov. George W.
Bush won all three states.
Now that both of the underdogs have dropped
out of the race, Students for Bush and Students
for Gore said they would like to see members
from Students for McCain and Students for
Bradley join campaign efforts for their respective
Although some supporters consider themselves
to be Democrats and Republicans, they are slow
to join their rivals' camps.
"There are some people who would not support
Gore," said Students for Bradley co-Chairwoman
Amanda Beaumont, an LSA senior. "I'm not, to be
honest, very excited about Vice President Gore."
"We're leaving it up to each and every person,"
Students for Gore chairman Michael Masters,
an LSA junior, said the group has received calls
from Students for Bradley members wanting to
join the campaign to maintain a Democrat in the
But LSA senior Luke Klipp, a Students for
Bradley member, said although he will vote for
Gore in the general election he will not help the
vice president's campaign.
"I haven't heard from him the sorts of things that
make me feel like it's worth my time," Klipp said.
College Democrats Vice President Rebecca
Perring said she believes Students for Bradley
members will cross over to the Gore camp.
"I'm guessing that many of them will come and
work for his campaign. They're a dedicated
bunch," Perring said.
While McCain is out of the presidential race,
his political future remains unclear, leading Stu-
dents for McCain to sit tight awaiting the senator's
"It's by far not over, especially after what he
said'" yesterday, said Students for McCain mem-
ber Trent Thompson, an LSA senior.
"If he's not a candidate and he's still pushing
for ideas ... then that's what we're going to do
too," Thompson said.
Personally, he said, "I still can't support Bush
just because he's a Republican candidate."
Students for Bush co-Chairman Adam Killian,
an LSA junior, said he hopes members of Stu-
dents for McCain will join Bush's campaign.
Killian said both Students for Bush and Stu-
dents for McCain had widespread support on
campus and a merger of the two would "give Al
Gore a run for his money."
But Thompson said McCain's absence leaves
him unsure who to support. "If it's between Bush
and Gore I have no idea who I'd vote for," he said.

latfer th roug March
Working to live up to its environmental ideology, the
University School of Natural Resources and Environment
recently completed Phase I of its two phase renovation pro-
ject, which includes the "greening" of the Samuel Trask
SNRE Dean Dan Mazmanian said the school, an interdis-
ciplinary natural and social science college that focuses on
environmental issues, is reviving its current building and in
the process making it environmentally safer.
"It is going to be an environmentally appropriate building,"
Phase II will begin this summer and should be completed
in about two years, Mazmanian said.
The first phase included an infill in the inner courtyard, a
new roof, a large commons area for students to gather and a
new computing site within the current building, which is
already in operation.
"I use the computer lab;' SNRE sophomore Jon Burian
said. "It is nice and new."
Phase II will include remodeling most of the current
rooms and laboratories within the Dana building, including
the use of green building designs.
"The renovations are going to help a lot, having the
biggest effect on students - more space for graduate stu-
dents and more casual space for undergraduate students to
hold meetings," SNRE Prof. James Diana said.
Making the building "green" will include minimizing the
resource consumption of energy and materials, maximizing
the salvage of demolished building materials to reuse
them,and minimizing the construction and renovation dis-
turbances to the environment.
The newly refurbished building also will attempt to mini-
mize energy consumption, provide a healthy indoor envi-
ronment and use energy sources with minimum
SNRE hopes to design the building durably so mainte-
nance including cleaning supplies and paints can be mini-
malized. The maintenance team will use materials that will
not produce hazardous waste or can be easily reused, com-
posted or recycled.
"In the SNRE we talk about trying to be environmentally
safe - it is kind of like practicing what we preach," said
SNRE sophmore Kyle Schott about the greening process.
"It is hard to be an organization like ours and not process
what we preach," Diana said. "It seems logical to us, and it

Students too busy to exercise dur-

Campus Recreation Building where
the doors will be open until 1:30
The Alumni Association and the
Student Alumni Council are spon-
soring Midterm Mayhem, which is
scheduled to take place at the CCRB
tonight and the next three Friday
nights. Health buffs will be able to
work out, shoot hoops, use the pool
and participate in exercise classes
during the free event.
"We hope that students who don't
normally come to the CCRB during
the day because of classes or jobs
will be able to make use of the facil-
ities on the weekend nights that they
wouldn't otherwise," Alumni Asso-
ciation Student Programs Coordina-
tor Mary Trombley said. "They may
do anything that they can do during
regular hours at the CCRB."
As a part of Midterm Mayhem,
the CCRB will be having a different
theme each Friday. To kick off the
weekly event, Midterm Mayhem
will be hosting "Blue-au" tonight, a
Hawaiian luauspin-off offering free
tropical snacks and drinks, in addi-
tion to serving Gatorade and Power-
Yoga class and advice from a per-
sonal trainer on how to use the
CCRB's exercise equipment will
also be available.
A raffle will be held every 30
minutes in which students can win
prizes including water bottles, T-
shirts and gift certificates.

dents to see what the CCRB has to
offer," SAC Vice President of Pro-
motion and Recruitment Katie

SNRE is known and often chosen by students for being
"small and intimate," Mazmanian said, and this project
keeps up with that concept because students are involved.

e-mails telling us about meetings where all students can
