)ss of diversity to Washington's student community, Marsh
aid, the Minority Think Tank at the university assembled t 78
hairs and placed photos of minorities on them in front of the
lusky Union Building yesterday. But the Think Tank's efforts
ere not entirely accepted with open arms.
"A lot of people just ignored them. I think a lot of students
id, care," Marsh said. "Most of the minority students
Since affirmative action has already been eliminated from
Iashington's admissions policy, Marsh said Minority Think
ank used its day of action to encourage university students
recruit to minority students attending Seattle high schools.
Minority Think Tank has been given a regentally funded
tdget of $80,000 for university students to assist high
hool student in SAT and ACT preparation and to develop
lationships with minority high school students.
But the apathy Marsh described at Washington also was
parent at the University of Texas at Austin, said Andre

He explained that during last year's days of action, AROC
onsored a takeover of a university tower.
Lancaster said AROC decided not to perform a takeover
is year because, "we don't have that push that we had last
ar,' he said.
This year AROC, which organized yesterday's day of
tion, held a rally at the new statue of Martin Luther King Jr.
Ilminating its "month of action"
Other events that occurred during the past few weeks
c lectures on affirmative action from Frank Wu, a
od University professor and a performance by the
minority student theater group, the Drive By Players, at
Texas' celebration of National Coming Out Day.
Lancaster said yesterday's rally sparked energy in students.
One of AROC's new initiatives is also to recruit high school
"There's so many kids out there that don't want to go to UT
because of Hopwood," Lancaster said. "I'm black and I did-
n't let Hopwood stop me from coming to UT."
Although the University of Virginia did not hold any
events for yesterday's day of action, affirmative action has
been a hot topic on its campus. On Oct. 6 and 7, the
Advancement for Diversity in Education held
OctoberCamp, a camp out to teach students and faculty
about affirmative action.
"We made a powerful statement that there is a lot of stu-
dents and members of faculty that support our admission pol-
icy," said Rebecca Doughtery, a member of ADE.
The campus' interest in keeping the university's current
admission policy was supported when its Board of Visitors
released a statement that it is "prepared to go to court to
defend," its current admissions policy of using race as a fac-
But at one of the campuses where the fight for affirmative
action first began - the University of California at Berkeley
- the number of students that turned out for yesterday's
events were dramatically fewer than last year.
Chair of the Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action By
Any Means Necessary at Berkeley, Hoku Jeffery, said yester-
day's rally at Berkeley attracted about 200 students, many of
whom were high school students from Oakland, Calif.
But last year, BAMN held a statewide walkout, in which
more than 2,500 protesters participated. Although Jeffery
said yesterday's rally was a success in educating people, he
explained that the in schedule and the lower turnout should be
attributed to the "the ebb and flow" of the movement.
