One of the new cases was a student living in South
Quad, a residence hall that had not yet experienced any
cases of the disease. Levy said University Housing has
already begun selective cleaning procedures for the stu-
dent at South Quad.
Although no tests have confirmed the presence of Nor-
walk disease, epidemiology Prof. Arnold Monto explained
the cause of the disease probably came from a viral infec-
tion such as Norwalk, since students who have the disease
have not shown signs of experiencing influenza-like
Monto also said such outbreaks occurred on at the Universi-
ty in previous years. In those cases, Norwalk disease was
found to be the cause.
During a study the University conducted on an outbreak a

Olszewski said the donor card is important Currentl
decade ago, researchers discovered that the disease spread
through residence halls because dining services did not follow
proper procedures while preparing salads.
This led to the easy spread of the disease, causing the con-
tamination of the entire residence hall.
"Once it does start, it is hard to control. It can be pretty wide
scale," Monto added.
Instead, students have only shown signs of gastroenteritis
infection, which can only come from a Norwalk-type infec-
tion, Monto said.
"The stomach flu doesn't do this. The flu is a respiratory
infection, while these infections involve the stomach and intes-
tines," Monto added.
Moreover, the "stomach flu" is not an accurate term for the
virus, but it is just a name people use to describe illnesses sim-
ilar to the one students are contracting, he said.
Similar infections have also appeared on cruise ships, such
as in September. 2003, when 340 passengers became ill after
coming in contact with the virus.
Monto said it's normal for the virus to appear in areas where
people are in constant contact with one another, such as cruise
ships and college campuses.
"Because dorms are semi-closed populations, if you get
anything to start up, it can transmit easily. It's very easy for
extensive transmission," he said.
While students living in certain residence halls may have to
deal with the disease for a few more weeks, to the majority of
students living off campus the news of the outbreak hasn't
affected their living habits.
LSA senior Karandeep Singh who lives on Tappan Street,
said, "It really hasn't affected non-residence hall students. I'm
not really afraid (of getting the disease) because off campus
hasn't had a problem yet."
The good news for students living in the residence
halls is that despite its ability to spread, the disease is not
very serious and the current outbreak is not uncommon,
Monto said. He added that the people who have the dis-
ease might feel extreme discomfort, but they will be bet-
ter in a few days.
As long as people keep washing their hands and food is
handled properly, he expects that the disease should subside in
a few weeks.
Until it sees conclusive data about the outbreak, the Univer-
sity is continuing with its measures to prevent the spread of the
Levy said many students who were infected recovered
over the weekend, but only after three days of no new
cases of the disease will Housing halt the preventive meas-
ures in residence halls.
As for preventing future outbreaks, Levy said Housing can
only do so much and does not plan on making any changes to
residential hall procedures.
"It is a seasonal condition and comes from multiple sources.
So you can't get rid of it permanently," Levy said.

gathered from high school counselors, the 1
decrease in applications can be attributed to stu-
dents discouraged by the more extensive appli-
cation and the distribution of the new
application a month later than usual.
The statistics also show that applications from
Michigan residents are down 12 percent and
nonresidents are down 21 percent. Peterson
stressed that all these numbers are much too pre-
liminary for close scrutiny and that figures com-
piled in the summer would be more indicative of
the state of University admissions.

a problem for me."
Banas, who also said she did not know
that a rifle range had previously existed, said
she would rather see the University spend
money on renovation of North Hall - the
ROTC's instruction facility damaged during
the construction of the LSI building.
"Right now I'm more concerned with the
fact that the building we have our classes in,
North Hall, is partially condemned. That's
more important to me than a firing range,"
Among some older cadets, however, the
lack of a rifle range remains a salient issue.
"I would say around half of the upper-
classmen see a need for it," said Engineering
senior and ROTC cadet Nicholas Mcintee.
Regarding the younger cadets who are less
concerned with weapons training, Mcintee
predicted that their priorities would change
"I think that by the time they're seniors,
they will look back and say, "I wish I had
Rienstra also stressed that weapons train-
ing should be a priority for all soldiers. He
cited former Iraq prisoner of war Pfc. Jessi-
ca Lynch, whose support unit was unable to
effectively defend itself in an ambush, as an
example of the importance of weapons
training for even non-combat units.
"It is a point of considerable concern for
the Army that everyone gets significantly
more weapons training," Rienstra said.
Maj. James Blick, a recruiting operations
officer for Central Michigan's ROTC pro-
gram - which currently has an on-campus
rifle range -- also said he considers
weapons training a vital part of the ROTC
"I guess I would be upset if they did that
to us," Blick said, referring to having a fir-
ing range down.
"All soldiers need to be able to protect
themselves and their fellow soldiers. That's
why every soldier has to be proficient with
their weapon," he said.
