Cost of college rises quicker than inflation
By Jodie Kaufman
The College Board released a report yester-
day that the price of a college degree is con-
tinuing to rise higher than the rate of inflation.
A national study released by the College Board
report that tuition increased from 4.4 percent to
5.2 percent this year for four-year public insti-
But the University claims its tuition increase is
tow'er than the national average.
University spokeswoman Julie Peterson said
"we're very pleased that thanks to strong
state support the University has been able to
keep tuition increases modest for the past few
The University raised tuition 2.8 percent
between the 1999-2000 academic year and they

gan residents and non-residents, and for both the

LSA freshmen and sophomores paid $6,333
and $19,761 for in-state and out-of-state stu-

LSA juniors and seniors paid $7,137 for in-
state tuition and $21,149 for out-of-state tuition
last year. This year students pay $7,339 and
$2 ,751 respectively.
"I don't think there is a correlation between the
number of students going to college and the cost
increase," said Laura Wilcox, assistant director for
public affairs at the American Council on Educa-
"Students now more than ever value the col-
lege education. The amount of money that can
be earned with a college degree is significantly
higher than that of a high school diploma," she
College Board President Gaston Caperton said
in a written statement that loans account for 59
percent of all financial aid compared to about 41
percent in 1980-8 3.
Funding for Pell Grants has decreased as well,
but may now increase. The Pell Grant is the main
source of student aid for needy students, Wilcox
The grant has to be authorized by Congress
each year, and budgets have in the past been lim-
ited, Wilcox said.
In l998-99 alone, the Pell Grant awarded 3.8
million students with $7.2 billion in families with
an average yearly household income of S20,544,

much more cost efficient, but changing teaching
mechanisms is difficult.

Lecture wraps up
week of awareness
By Natalie Plosky
Daily Staff Reporter
Breast Cancer Awareness Week at
the University wrapped up last night
with two speakers representing the
clinical and personal perspectives of
breast cancer at the University Stu-
dents Against Cancer's monthly meet-
ing in the Michigan Union.
Jamie Frey, program coordinator
and nurse practitioner of the Breast
Care Center at the University Hospi-
tals, presented a slide show atthe meet-
ing demonstrating the proper breast
self examination technique as well as
other statistics and graphs.
Frey stressed that early detection has
been paramount in fighting the disease.
Of those women who are diagnosed
with the disease at an early stage,
almost 97 percent will survive for
more than five years. The death rate
of cancer has declined by the largest
amount in more than 65 years in the
1990s, which can largely be credited
to early detection efforts.
She said women over 40 years old to
get mammogramsevery onetotwo years
and for women over 50 to receive mam-
mograms annually. She also empha-
sized the importance of self exams for
Frey also dispelled a common
assumption that heredity is the largest
factorin developing the disease. While
5 percent to 10 percent of breast cancer
cases can be attributed to genes, Frey
explained that being a woman and
growing older cause the rest.
Deanna Beyer, an 11-year survivor of
breast cancer and a nurse manager at the
University Health System, is an advocate
for issues of cancer survivorship.
She spoke of her personal experience
with the disease and some of the issues
she has had to face as well as the posi-
tive attitude she has gained.
"Having a life threatening illness can
stretch your limits," Beyer said. "it's
given me the freedom to do the things I
want todo andtotrust my instinctsmore.
I have learned to enjoy the moment and
not to sweat the small stuff."
Rosalee LoChirco, cancer aware-
ness co-chair for USAC, stressed the
importance of awareness of disease,
even among college students.
"Younger women can get breast
cancer," LoChirco said. "We want
people to know about it so it's not
a scary thing, but a controllabte
The University's observance of
Breast Cancer Awareness Week, spon-
sored by USAC, coincides with the
American Cancer Society's Breast
Cancer Awareness Month for the
month of October.
The combined fundraising efforts
exceeded expectations. On "Diag Day"
last year, 4,000 pink ribbons and infor-
rnation packets were distributed. This
year, "Diag Day," held last Wednes-
day, USAC members handed out5,500
ribbons and information.

Megan Rohling, an LSA senior,
spoke for the second time about her
experience as a rape survivor at the
14th annual Speak-Out last night.
She atso talked about the media
attention associated with the event,
her story and her photograph dis-
played on the front page of a news-

on the street ... People knew me as
someone who's been raped before
they knew where I was from," Roh-

ence in the media was positive as
it prompted people to talk openly
about issues of sexual violence and

Last night survivors of sexual
violence such as rape, unwanted
sexual conduct and domestic vio-
lence, including 16 women and one
man, shared testimonies about their
experiences in the dialogue hosted
by the Sexual Assault Prevention

100 people attended.
After the testimonials, spectators

October is domestic violence
awarness month and an important
time for many students. On the sec-
ond-floor study room in the Michigan
Union, SAPAC will have exhibits
through Oct. 29.
Many of the survivors who spoke
last night made t-shirts that will
be displayed along with the Silent

local women who lost their lives to
The Silent Women's exhibit is
composed of 12 wooden forms, face-
less and painted red, that have placks
