himself and other students, since it
is only a couple of hours on the
weekend.
"I think they'll definitely be able
to find other places to go," Dill
said, adding that he probably would
just study at his house or the Michi-
gan Union.
But LSA junior Aaron Holman said
he uses the library for little last-
minute projects and thought the new
hours might inconvenience him.
"That doesn't surprise me," he
added, when asked if he knew that the
librarians have yet to ask for student
advice regarding the decision.
The potential cut in library hours
is another dilemma stemming from
state budget cuts, which resulted in
this year's tuition hike.
Due to a $36.4 million cut in
state appropriations, the University
Board of Regents raised tuition 6.5
percent and 6 percent for in-state

and out-of-state students, respec-
tively, at their July meeting.
Although this year's tuition
increases are lower than the 7.9 per-
cent increase that happened in
2002, more budgetary sacrifices
were made, like downsized staffs
and a reduced number of class sec-
tions.
"I don't view this as a budget cri-
sis, but boy, it's been a hard year,"
University Provost Paul Courant
said in July.
"Every piece of the University
took a cut."
Housing costs also went up for
students living in residence halls.
The day after classes ended in
April, the regents voted unanimous-
ly to raise residence hall and family
housing rates, 5.3 and 4.5 percent
respectively.
Vice President for Student Affairs
E. Royster Harper attributed the
rise in costs to security increases
such as video cameras and automat-
ic door locks, instigated by a crime

wave of home invasions that swept
the residence halls in the winter of
2002.
In addition, the fire safety initia-
tives and windows were updated in
many residence halls.
Although she voted for the
increases, Regent Olivia Maynard
(D-Goodrich) voiced concerns
about increasingly high costs at the
University.
"I'm truly concerned about the
pressures on students and their fam-
ilies," she said.

ing and taking advantage of the
extended hours. "Even though
we've been open, we still expect
long lines," she said.
To compensate, both Michigan
Book and Supply and Ulrich's has
hired more staff to ease the flow.
Shaman Drum is also responding
to the increase in business. Today,
employees have organized "Drag
Day" in order to create HIV and
AIDS awareness, in honor of a for-
mer employee.
Local restaurants also kept their
doors open for the holiday.
"Today is always very busy. There
would be no sense in taking vaca-
tion," Victor Salazar, an Panchero's
employee, said.
"We stay open on Labor Day
every year. It's business as usual,"
Jeff Smith, a Cottage Inn employee,
said. "People still have to eat."
