receives from that area. Spencer compared it to a
view of the earth from space - lights can be seen in
the most populous parts of the world.
"We try to go where the lights are," Spencer said,
adding, "That does not mean to say we neglect any
areas of the state or the country."
Spencer said the University tries to make personal
visits' to each in-state high school at least once every
He estimated the University spends about $100
million in recruiting every year.
"There's never an 'i' we won't dot or a 't' we
won't cross to identify students who will be success-
ful at the University of Michigan, no matter what
their background," Spencer said. "There may be
some (universities) that do as much but few who do
He added that counselors focus not only on geo-
graphic diversity but on the diversity of interests and
hobbies prospective students express in their applica-
"This is not a school of GPAs and test scores,"
Spencer said that 85 percent of accepted students
have done community service, 50 percent play a
musical instrument and 10 percent have started their
Another way the University recruits students from
underrepresented areas involves the efforts of alumni.
Alumni travel to college fairs at different schools
in their communities to advise prospective students.
They also have an effect on prospective applicants
when they drive with a University of Michigan
bumper sticker or fly a maize-and-blue flag outside
"If I'm a kid and I see that, that's going to res-
onate," Spencer said.
Most students hear about the University because
of its national reputation as a leader in many differ-
ent areas, Spencer said.
"We've always been a very, very popular universi-
ty," he added.
Joyce Williams, career center director at Ann
Arbor Pioneer High School, said students at the
school are able to form their own opinion of the Uni-
versity simply by living in the same city. The campus
is close enough that students can take advantage of a
number of experiences and events there.
Williams said a University counselor visits the
school and is available to answer students' questions
throughout the year.
Anne Young, counseling department head at Troy
High School in Oakland County, said a University of
Michigan counselor comes to her area for a college
night every fall.
"She is a very, very good spokesperson for the
University," Young said.
"U of M comes up a lot," Young added. "I think
the school speaks for itself, the reputation of the
University of Michigan."
A lot of students at the high school have parents
who attended college, which generally makes them
more aware of higher education.
Pat Cleary, a college counselor at Stuyvesant High
School in New York City, said her students have usu-
ally heard of the University prior to the application
process, and students who have friends and family
who attended the University create an additional net-
More applications come to the University from
Stuyvesant than any other high school in the country
outside Ann Arbor.

About 520 students nominated
various professors for the Golden
Apple Award and about 15 of those
nominations were for Soloway, said
Engineering junior, Brian Netter.
But the group of students that
nominates the winner, Students Hon-
oring Outstanding UniWersity Teach-
ers, does not only consider the num-
ber of nominations but also thequal-
ity of the comments professors
"From engineers naming a profes-
sor, that is quite a few," Netter said.
"What struck me most was how
inspired the students were to chal-
In honor of winning the Golden
Apple Award, Soloway will give his
"ideal last lecture" Jan. 22 at the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theater and be
awarded S1,000 cash.
When Soloway was informed that he
would get to give the lecture, he jok-
ingly protested, "But I don't lecture."

pose of a study break for some students.

she said yesterday.
Regent Olivia Maynard (D-
Goodrich) said she was also in favor of
"I'm not saying it's going to be a
unanimous decision, but I don't think it
will have any problem passing," she
said. "Matt really did his homework."
The proposed break would be Mon-
day and Tuesday, Oct. 14 and 15 in next
year's fall calendar. To make up for
missed time, classes would start the day
after Labor Day - Tuesday, Sept. 3
next year - instead of the following
day. This would shorten the University's
Welcome Week by one day but would
have no effect on the ending date for
the michigan daily

"I'm not adverse to the changes in
the bylaws at the moment," McGowan
said, adding that she has not heard any
opposition to the proposal aside from
classes. Classes would end Wednesday,
Dec. 11, and the last day of finals is
scheduled to be Friday, Dec. 20.
The proposal would not affect the
The regents will also be asked tomor-
row to approve changes to the athletic
bylaws proposed by University Presi-
dent Lee Bollinger.
The changes would modify the name
of the Board in Control to be the Advi-
sory Board on Intercollegiate Athletics.
The plan has come under fire in the
Senate Advisory Committee on Univer-
sity Affairs. SACUA Chair Moji
Navvab plans to speak to the regents
and submit a letter expressing SACUA's
"Basically, our concerns are that we
do not want to dilute the faculty gover-
nance in the board of control," said
SACUA Vice Chair Jack Gobetti, a
Dentistry professor, who added that the
power of the two students and two
alumni on the board would also be
The Board in Control has a say in
financial and academic matters in the
University's athletic program. The
Advisory Board on Intercollegiate Ath-
letics would be purely advisory.
The changes would give the presi-
dent of the University the final say in
athletic matters and would give the fac-
ulty control over only those matters
related to academics. The modified
Board in Control would no longer have
power over the athletic director.
Gobetti said he feels the changes
would leave open the possibility that.
the athletic director could nominate fac-
ulty members who might not put stu-
dent athletes' academic interests first.
"The athletic director, by nature of
the beast, is looking at an athlete who
happens to be a student," he said.
