Ave Maria to open temporay campus

By Jon Zemke
Daily Staff Reporter
Ave Maria Law School, the next institution with
plans to move into Ann Arbor, expects to open its
temporary campus on Aug. 28, 2000, pending,
clearance from the Ann Arbor Planning
Commission.
The temporary facility formerly housed the
National Sanitation Foundation and is zoned as a
research facility, which could pose problems for
the infant school.
With close to 400 serious inquires, Ave Maria
Dean Bernard Debranski said the school has
already begun the process of evaluating it first
incoming class of students. Ave Maria officials
plan to matriculate 40 to 50 students in its first
semester.
"We've accepted students," Debranski said.
"We've had slight more than 30 applications.
We've accepted some students and we've turned
some down."
Despite its size, Ave Maria could create some

competition for the University's Law School
"I am not sure it's going to have an ima,.t~
said Ann Arbor City Council member Joe pi
(R-Ward 1I). "Many law students come from out-
side the Ann Arbor area, so I don't see it hastig
any impact"
The school plans to open its temporar} campus
on the northwest corner of Plymouth and (rcen
roads. Under the land's original zoning Ave Mra
officials thought they would be able to set up the
law school. But if the land is zoned for "oil ice use
with a special use exemption" the temporary am-
pus can be used.
The planning commission tabled the request totr
rezoning Tuesday because Orchard ills and
Maplewood neighborhood groups argued againsl the
rezoning Debranski said concerns raised a the
meeting included the use of the rezoned propetny
after Ave Maria moves to its permanent campus.
"I think there is a general reluctance to do
rezoning," Debranski said. "The local neigh-
borhood organization has a representatixe

Survey looks at students
preferences in workforce

By Undsey Alpert
er year students spend at the Unixersity brings
them one step closer to choosing their fii'st emplox -
er and sometimes the choices can seem endless in
a economy with loxx unemployment and a multi-
tude of job openings for college-educated adults.
To determine what students find iost atractive
in a first'me emplover. Unixersum. a New ork-
based research and consulting firm created The
American Undergiaduate Surney 1999.
The survey examined what students described as
the most ideal employers among engineering, com-
puter science and business students.
The survey of more than 3.000 students from
colleges . nationwide, including the University,
placed Microsoft, Walt Disney and
PricewaterhouseCoopers as the top employers
among computer science, engineering and busi-
ness students respectively.
Business senior Kelley Ratza, spokesperson for
the professional fraternity Delta Sigma Pi said she
was not surprised about the survey findings.
"I interned at Pricewaterhousecoopers this past
summer" she said. "There are a lot of young people
employed there and the firm seems to do a lot of
recruiting."
What may seem an unusual contender in the engi-
neering category, Walt Disney, took top honors in the
survey.
Representatives at Walt Disney said engineers are
employed to create rides for all of the Disney amuse-
ment parks.
Walt Disney officials said Disney probably placed
well in the survey because it provides innovation in
creating rides and cutting-edge technology.

Among the characteristics students seek in an
employer include the ability to provide a future
career reference, which nearly 29 percent of sur-
veyed students ranked as most important.
According to the survey, students also want to be
surrounded by inspiring colleagues and receive
competitix e compensat ion
'Most people are looking for a company that fits
them." Ratza said.
In terms of compensation, students in the survey
expect to receive between 540,000 to $50,000 for
their starting salaries. Signing bonuses, a sum of
money given to students who sign a contract to work
for the company, have become common even among
undergraduate students, and nearly 40 percent of sur-
vey participants said they expect to receive a bonus.
Signing bonuses are on the rise as competition for
undergraduate students becomes more intense.
"Traditional companies have to figure out how to
compete against the more (up-and-coming) compa-
nies. They really have to look out for and measure up
to what today's start-ups are offering students in
terms of development opportunities, compensation
and corporate culture," Country Manager U.S.A.
spokesperson Michelle Rea said.
The survey also found that 82 percent of respon-
dents placed having fun at work as their top priority,
followed by ongoing opportunities for education,
short daily commutes and flexible working hours.
"Today's students are looking instead at their
work-life situation as a whole, meaning that work in
itself is an important contributor to their overall
quality of life," Rea said.
Music sophomore Randy Aaronson disagrees
with this finding. "I don't really care what the job sit-
uation is like. I just want to get a job.

Tribe seeks injunction
to stop Detroit casinos

DETROIT (AP) - An Upper
Peninsula American Indian tribe filed
for a federal injunction yesterday to halt
Detroit's planned casinos until its law-
suit challenging the city's process for
choosing three casino developers is
decided.
The Lac Vieux Desert Band of Lake
Superior Chippewa Indians called the
injunction sought in U.S. District Court
in Grand Rapids "necessary because
(the tribe) continues to suffer irrepara-
ble harm" by Detroit's foray into gam-
ing.
At issue is whether Mayor Dennis
Archer's giving preferential status to
the Atwater Casino Group - partner-
ing with Mandalay Resort Group in the
MotorCity Casino - and to Greektown
Casino LLC interfered with the rights
of other groups that vied for a casino.
No hearing dates for the injunction
request or the lawsuit have been set,
tribe spokesperson Robert Kolt said.
Archer spokesperson Greg Bowens
said the tribe's injunction request was
expected and called it "a lot of hogwash"
"We believe that the city is on solid
ground," he said.
In April, a federal appeals court in
Cincinnati reinstated the tribe's lawsuit
- filed in February 1997 - and
remanded it for a rehearing by U.S.
District Judge Robert Holmes Bell,
who had dismissed the suit last year.

It alleges the bidding process for
casinos violated the First Amendment
and ual-protection rights of the tribe,
which runs a casino near Watersmeet in
Gogebic County just north of the
Wisconsin border.
"The intention of our lawsuit was to
guarantee a fair and open licensing
process for everyone," Richard
Williams, the tribe's spokesperson, said
in a statement yesterday. "And this pre-
liminary injunction will stop the casi-
no-licensing process until the case is
resolved."
MGM Grand Inc. opened its new
temporary Detroit casino in July. The
temporary MotorCity Casino - the
focus of a Nov. 18 public hearing by the
Michigan Gaming Control Board --
could be christened here as early as
December.
And planners of the Greektown
Casino hope to open that site early next
year. State regulators still are investigat-
ing that casino group's backgrounds
and could hold a public hearing some-
time between January and March, said
Nelson Westrin, the gaming board's
executive director.
Under a ballot measure passed
statewide in 1996, the Greektown
group and then-Atwater/Circus Circus
were granted preferences. Detroit vot-
ers had backed their plans in a 1994 ref-
erendum.
