of developing more afford-
ed to a debate over how to

handle the construction of the proposed
homeless shelter recntly approved by the
City Council.
Ofh all the candidates, IIieftje was the
least hesitant to see the cio!ntruction move
forward.
"With the ness shelter the idea is to
fOLIcus on treatment and not housing," lie
said. "They will receive treatment and then
the goal is for them to nove on to what we
call transitional housing ."
Hieftje addressed concerns after the
debate that the safety of residents who live
near the proposed site should be consid-
ered.
"We've already increased police protec-
tion, police oversight ... in the area," he
said after the debate. "And rerchants are

in the shelter instead of in their doorways.
Rapundalo said he was a bit more skep-:;
tical and expressed concern over a possible
influx of more homeless into the city.
"I don't think the neighborhood safety
issue has been adequately addressed," he
said. "I would like to have seen more of
a study commissioned before the shelter
was approved. The study that was done
was done after the City Council
approved it. -
Of the candidates, Goodman voiced the
strongest objection to the shelter.
"Ilave any of you heard the saying, 'If
you build it. they will come?" he asked the
audience. "The more we do for the home-
less, the worse the situation will become."

"It's awful," she said. "My roommate's fitend' sleeps
ver every night, and he lives one floor below us."
On the other hand, some students unexpectedly find
emnselves without any roommate at all. LSA freshman
y Warren said he doesn't mind if he goes several
ays without seeing his roommate, who often stays with
is girlfriend.
"It's not that I don't like him. It's just more like a sin-
le," Warren said.
"Of course, cohabitation has economic benefits,"
mock said, referring to the fact that two people can live
nore cheaply together than apart. But the economic fac-
or is usually not enough to convince students to move
together.
"A very important, difference (between college cohab-
ors and older colsabitors) is that students .are generally

not yet economically independent," Smock said.
Some students have personal reasons for signing sepa-
rate leases. "You don't want to be stuck in a situation
where you have a fight and are stuck in close quarters
and have no choice," Bergrin said.
"One 'cost' of cohabitation for college students is that
it is easier to end a dating relationship than a cohabita-
tional relationship. So, the emotional toll can be much,
much higher (if the relationship ends) than just dating,"
Smock said.
Sleeping over "doesn't make it this huge commit-
ment," Jain said. "There's always that space."
Jain and Patel also said they appreciated having their
separate places for studying.y
LSA senior Lauren Renard said it wouldn't have
made sense for her to move in with her former
boyfriend. "College is an age where you're doing a lot
of growing. It's important to have your own space," she
said.

chaired the subcommttevtofUList
versity programning staff. 'We had
student representatives on the con-
mittee."
Hower said for the programming
changes to be effective, "students
need to be involved."
The proposal's release to Harper
will occur almost two weeks after
the Ann Arbor City Attorney's
Office decided to stop offering
leniency for second-time minor in
possession offenses.
"This is not a reaction to the MIP
rise. It started way before all that,"
Hower said.
Harper also said that the report is
not related to the city's MIP policy
change.
"It is part of our on going efforts
to continuously educate and pro-
vide students with options," she
said in a written statement.
Hower said University-sponsored
events are only an alternative and
not the solution to underaged drink-
ing.
"There's no lack of things to do
in Ann Arbor," she said.
The report will outline events
that will steer students toward sub-
stance free events.
But LSA junior Sarra Olson said
she disagrees.
"This tos. is not meant for peo-
ple under 21. There's nothing for us
to do but go to house parties,"
Olson said.
Olson also said University pro-
gramming won't deter underaged
drinking. "If students want to party,
they're gonna party" she said.
"If the University had started at
the very beginning of the year with
progranss and events, people might
have looked into it. I would have
looked into it," Olson said. "But
we're already almost into Novem-
ber and people are set in their
weekend routine."
Ann Arbor Police Sgt. Michael
Logghe said whether students feel
there are other alternatives, drinking
is simply illegal for those under 21.
"That's like telling a bank robber
what he should do instead of rob-
bing banks," Logghe said.
"It's not our job to come up with
alternatives to underage drinking.
Underage drinking is against the
la'," he said. "It's ludicrous to say
there's nsothing else to do but to
have a beer."
