HOT OR NOT?
ARE YOU GELUN'? - Fox TV Studios
has teamed with top New York hairstylist
Rodney Cutler and hair-product giant
Redken for "Making a Cut," a one-hour
reality series following a group of aspir-
ing hair dressers, fresh out of cosmetol-
ogy school. They will get a chance to
learn the craft from Cutler, who is open-
ing a new salon in New York. "It is almost
like 'American Idol' meets 'The
Restaurant' in a hairdressing salon," said
David Martin, Fox TV Studios executive
vice president of alternative productions.
Since Cutler's focus is on the fashion
industry, the best of the trainee group will
get the chance at the end of the series to
work at a big event such as a fashion
show or a photo shoot.
This fast-paced real-life drama will
include frequent quizzes where contes-
tants will be weeded out for saying "mul-
let" instead of "bi-level."
ANISTON TRADES CLOTHES FOR
MONEY - "Friends" star Jennifer
Aniston's Emmy dress attracted bids of
more than $4,100 in an online charity
auction, The Associated Press reported.
The midnight blue, knee-length
Halston dress, inspired by Marilyn
Monroe's subway-grate dress in "The
Seven Year Itch," was the leading seller
Monday at the auction of outfits worn
by stars to this year's Emmy Awards.
Last year, the "Clothes off Our
Back" initiative received Emmy outfits
from about 20 celebrities and raised
more than $87,000 for the Cure Autism

For the Daily
On Februray 14th, 2003, I attended
the largest peace rally ever held in
Melbourne, Australia. Surrounded by
over 100,000 Australians, I felt like
more than just a tourist, but a part of
the community. I spent six months in
Australia this past winter on a study
abroad exchange program between
the University of Michigan and the
University of Melbourne. My experi-
ence went well beyond just attending
classes in another country; it opened
my eyes to the world outside U.S.
borders and gave me a true sense of
life halfway around the globe.
Melbourne is just one of over 80
locations offered for studying
abroad though the University's
Office of International Programs.
Each year more and more students
are taking the opportunity to spend a
semester or more studying abroad.
OIP Director Carol Dickerman says
that while sophomore and junior
years are the most popular times to
head off, students are eligible to go
abroad as soon as they've completed
freshman year. "I'd love students to
begin to think about studying abroad
the minute they hit campus,"
Dickerman says. If like many
incoming. freshman, you had other
concerns racking your brain your
first couple of years on campus -
majors, football games and happy
hours, surely - you can still
explore your options and most like-
ly find a program that fits your
While Florence, Italy and London
are the most popular study abroad
destinations for University students,
many, more obscure, locations are
also alternative options. LSA junior
Matt Groves is planning on studying
in Aix, France, because he's "heard
good things" about the small French
town, while fellow LSA junior R.J.
DeLong will be going to Cape
Town, South Africa, in the winter,
the hometown of one of his friends
who told him it was "unbelievable."
The OIP's variety of programs
cater to different goals and abilities
unique to different students.
Language intensive programs are
available in countries like France
and Spain where classes are taught
in the native language. LSA senior
Frannie Laks, who spent last winter
in Prague, Czech Republic, found
her classes were easier than here at
Michigan but that she "learned dif-
ferent things outside the classroom."
Adam Rosenwasser, an LSA senior,
spent this past school year split
between Florence, Italy and Budapest,
Hungary. An Ann Arbor native,
Rosenwasser says he enjoyed getting
into a new routine and joining a new
community in a foreign city: "Getting
up every morning and taking the bus
through Budapest was an incredible
Rosenwasser's experience is just
one example of how a study abroad

Italy is a popular destination where students can study. With it's scenic views,
Florence Is a good place to visit.
