EJA VU
Continued from Page 1
-name is Sabrina, said she started out this vay, first
'wianting to be a waitress but then deciding to dance.
She 'got into the business after her freshman year
.in college, when she moved out of her house and was
,forced to support herself.
"I moved out and reality kicked in about paying
tills. I didn't realize how much it cost to live on ttty
pqwn,"she said..
t Sabrina had a friend who was a waitress at the
club and was earning a lot ofimoney in tips.
"I came to apply for a waitressing job but they
stid, 'We'd really like you to dance.' It's really over-
whelming when you come in the first time but I
found out I was making enough money to get back
iinto school, Sabrina said.
She said many dancers are students at the Univer-
sity of Michigan, Eastern Michigan University and
'ashtenaw Community College who make enough
noney dancing at the club to finance their education.
Sabrina said the money the students earn varies
depending on the night.
"I work two nights a week and make about S600
to S800 per week;' she said.
"You can get so far ahead of all those other stu-
dents who are going to have student loans."
Another dancer, whose stage name is Alex, is also
a student at a local college.
"I'm just saving up for when I graduate," she said.
After graduation Alex plans to get married and start
ter own business in jewelry design.
_iazz, another dancer who attends a local universi-
ty, said she too lances to earn money for school.
"I take care of other people besides myself and
-his is an easy way to do it," she said. "It's a nice

.jazz, who will graduate next yea, is planinig to
attend law school after college. She said dancing has
taught her how to deal with people.
"After doing this you can deal with any type of
person out there" she said.
Sabrina said contrary to what most people think
about exotic dancing, it teaches women to respect
themselves and their bodies.
"Any doubts I had about the way sty body looks I
have no more," she said. "Every once in a while some-
one asks me, 'Doesn't this degrade you? It degrades
me no more than it does these men who are here."
While Sabrina said dancing teaches self-cunfi-
dence and respect, several dancers said the job
doesn't teach the women how to tell their parents,
families and schools about their work.
Alex said her family doesn't know how she is sav-
ing up for graduation.
"My family was up for a football game and I had a
meeting at the club. I told them I was studying," she
said.
She added that she used to play a college sport
before suffering al injury. Once one of her professors
came to the club, not knowing she was a dancer there.
Ie asked her what her coach would think about her
work.
"You're supposed to be a representative of the
school. If I were playing my sport now, I would proba-
bly get kicked off the team and lose my scholarship,"
Alex said.
Sabrina also said she had an uncomfortable expe-
rience when a student from one of her classes, con-
sisting of only 10 people, visited the club, not
knowing that she was a dancer.
"I saw this kid in class every Tuesday and Ihurs-

day so I went up to him and said. 'You didn't see me
here if I didn't see you here,"' she said.
Komendera said the comfort of the dancers is
important to the club.
"The girls' safety here is first and foremost for
me," he said.
Komendera said this means more than simply
walking each girl to her car at night. He said one
time a dancer's uncle came into the club without
knowing she worked there. She waited in the locker
room while Komendera told the man there Was a girl
there who kness him and that it would be best if he
left. Komendera then refunded the man's mones.
"I've never had a problem in a situation like that,"
lie said.
Komendera said dancing. especially in situations
such as these, takes a lot of will and a lot ofeconfidence.
"I can give you all the tips in the world on helping
you dance but I can't give you the will to do it,' he said.
Jazz added that part of this confidence is beine
secure with herself.
"We're all human, we have feelings too. You know
what you're doing and you know that you're not
doing anything wrong" she said.
Sabrina said if it means getting an education,
dancing is worth it.
"If it helps me get ahead then it's great. It's mak-
ing college a reality for mc," she said.

USC Student Senator Alden C'hiu
said students know sry little about
the details of the event but feel it is
very unfortunate.
"All of the students are talkie"
about it," Chiu said. "A lot of the
information is not being released, so
there are still a lot of possibilities:'
Taylor said even after the incident
students have not raised questions
about safety in the residence halls.
"Concern is about the wsselfare of the
student, not at all about the safety on
the campus."
Taylor said counseling services
were set up for affected individu-
als and a meeting with the stti-

COURTS
Continued from Page 1
University Deputy General Counsel
Liz Barry said. "The courts ruling cer-
tainly confirms that policies like ours
are legal, effective and fair."
Curt Levy, Director of Legal and
Public Affairs for the Washington-
D.C.-based Center for Individual
Rights, said his "gut feeling is that this
will not have too much ofan effect."
CIR filed the lawsuits against the
University of Michigan as well as the
suit against the University of Washing-
ton.
But Godfrey Dillard, lead counsel for
the intervenin" defendants in the Uni-
versity's Ls case, said the decision
was a "very positive and encouraging

outcome.
Because the Washington decision
is in effect contradictory to the 5th
Circuit's decision in the 1996 case
of Hopwood vs. The University of
Texas Law School, some speculated
yesterday that the decision has
strengthened the potential of the
University's case being heard by the
Supreme Court.
Dillard said the University's cases
are already the ones most likely to
go to the Supreme Court because
the presence of the intervenors
ensures all parties affected by the
policies are represented.
"The Michigan cases are the one
because everyone's here," Dillard said.
"The conflicting circuits just adds to
it."
