testament to the resources that we all
have on this campus to be better teach-
ers." -
Ignelzi's teaching technique was rec-
ognized by faculty and students alike.
"In my short time at the Dental
school, I have heard nothing but
good things about him," first-year
Dental student Louis Whitesman
said.
"The word on the street is that he
is a great teacher and an amazing
researcher. He has made many con-
tributions to the (Dental) school and
to dentistry," he added.
"I personally have not had the
opportunity to take Dr. Ignelzi's
class, but I definitely am looking
forward to having him as a profes-
sor in the future," he added.
Ignelzi is pleased that "students real-
ly get into it and they have fun in the
process. They must generate knowl-
edge apply knowledge, and share
knowledge."

In addition, Ignelzi said that
while researching a topic is impor-
tant, "the true value comes in being
able to apply those skills else-
where."
For his version of Jeopardy!,
Ignelzi divides the class into groups
and assigns an anomaly to each
group.
These groups are then responsible
for doing research on that topic and
generating a handout that can be
used as a reference tool when the
course is over.
On competition days, a Power-
Point game board is displayed on a
large screen, and, like in the televi-
sion show, there are main categories
with questions to choose from and
students are given buzzers to ring in
their answers.
Ignelzi also treats patients and con-
ducts research on birth defects that
affect children's skulls that is funded
by the National Institutes of Health.
"That's the advantage and fun of
being at the University. I can teach, see
patients and do research, Ignelzi said.

AIRPORT
Continued from Page 1
"Seeing as how the airports have
been congested lately, I wouldn't be
surprised if we run into problems
and delays," said LSA junior Louisa
Kennedy, who is traveling to Florida
for spring break. "But I'm sure
we'll figure it out."
Travelers should still arrive to the
airport two to three hours before the
scheduled departure time.
"I'm more concerned with the
changes in security," Engineering
sophomore Kevin Toller said. "I'm
more concerned with the flight being
secure than being picky about where I
land."
Construction on the new terminal
began in 1997 to satisfy the growing
traveling population - whose num-
bers had been breaking records
since 1989 - passing through
Detroit Metro Airport..
In April 2001, it was estimated that
670 million people travel by air each
year, Conway said.
"In the next decade they estimate 1
billion. ... Seven airports the size of
Dallas would need to be built to meet
those demands," he added.
This terminal expansion follows the
addition of a sixth runway in Decem-
ber 2001, which also helped to increase
airport capacity.
"Even though the new runway is
overlooked, it's really appreciated in
the airline community," Conway said.
"It raised peak-time capacity by 25
percent."
The old concourses inside the
Davey Terminal, which currently
house Northwest and its affiliates,
will begin renovations in 2006 or
2007.
During the reconstruction the old
concourses will be demolished and
rebuilt in a "linear" concourse style
much like McNamara's, Conway said.
The vacancies caused by Northwest's
relocation to McNamara will be filled
with the remaining airlines until the
remodeling is complete.

HATE CRIMES

dent and take action.
Psychology Prof. Charles Behling
said the first reaction the class had
after hearing about the messages was
to comfort Robinson, but soon the
students' thoughts changed gears.
"They felt this was a question of
action and not just feeling badly about
it," Behling said.
As a result, the class started mail-
ing out flyers to students in
Couzens, hoping that residents
would show their support by posting
them on their doors.
Behling said he was proud of his
class for taking action and arousing
awareness, but said he hoped their
efforts to combat racism were not
anything extraordinary.
"I think we need to ask ourselves
what kind of people we would be if
we didn't respond to an outright act of

think that racism is over, and I disagree."

hate," he said.
As word of the harassment spread,
LSA Student Government became
involved. Robinson's class chose to
focus only on Couzens, but LSA-SG
members are hoping to take the cam-
paign against hate crimes campus-
wide today through mailed letters and
flyers that will decorate the halls
around campus.
LSA-SG President Rachel Tron-
stein, an LSA junior, said the group
took up the cause to spread awareness
that hate crimes do happen on campus.
"I think that while it was horrible,
it is a great educational opportuni-
ty," Tronstein said. "The fact that it

happened is indicative that the senti-
ment exists."
LSA-SG also sought support from
student groups on campus to help
with flyering, and more than 60
groups signed on to help.
LSA freshman Ravi Perry, an
LSA-SG representative and chair of
the Ethnic Studies Task Force, said
that, to him, the flyers' message was
especially important because stu-
dents don't realize how often hate
crimes occur.
"People think that it's 2002 and
they think that racism is over, and I
disagree. I think we still have a lot of
work to do," Perry said.

Student groups have been vocal in
expressing their opinions about how
accessible the president should be,
Lewis added.
"Students are willing to engage and
push the envelope of this University,"
Lewis said.
"The accessibility of the-president

being able to do your job is impor-

The president who comes in should
not merely maintain what others have
done, but also bring a vision with him
or her. That person should also be able
to deliver and institute a plan to real-
