vehicles moving around and that they
need to pay more attention when
crossing public roads for both their
safety as well as the safety of driver."~
As warmer weather sets in and
more students ride their bicycles,
Bess said he urges drivers to be at a
high alert when dodging cyclists.
"Pedestrian safety is always an
issue," Bess said.
"It's very important for us to ask
community members to pay attention
for vehicle traffic."
VISAS

of school if they experience prob-
lems with their paperwork.
"I'm not as influenced as other
people because I have a visa here,
but I know other people who could
not get a visa and people who are
scared to go back to their own coun-
try, because they don't know if
they'll be able to come back," said
Business School student Ning Lu,
who is from China.
The International Center helps-
students fill out immigration forms
and tries to make them feel more
comfortable while they're at the
University, Altamirano said.
"We want to show them that we
are a home away from home. We are
caring and we want to help them
and serve them," he added.

FLU

end, Levy said.
The decision to cut down preventive
measures was based on the reduced
numbers of students who have recently
contracted the disease. Only seven
cases of viral gastroenteritis were
reported over the weekend, Levy said.
He added that the outbreak caused
concern because it occurred in close
proximity and affected students experi-
enced the same symptoms.
Robert Ernst, associate director of'
University Health Service, and UHS
Director Robert Winfield provided med-
ical advice to housing officials on how
to best handle the outbreak, and they
said they now support the reduction of
measures.
Ernst said the cases of viral gastroen-
teritis are more spread out now -
occurring more equally in residence
halls and off-campus housing - where-
as before they had taken place primarily
in the residence halls. Because of the
declining number of cases in one partic-
ular location, Ernst said the outbreak
was at "background levels."
Ernst and Winfield, along with state
public health officials, are monitoring
and analyzing cases of the disease. Last
week, as soon as one case of the virus
was reported in a particular dorm, dis-
infecting procedures were implement-
ed, Ernst said.
He credited their immediate action in
controlling viral gastroenteritis as the
cause of a successful stop to its spread.

Fewer students have applied to
program since reactor shut down

REACTOR
Continued from Page 1
Nuclear engineering students who would have
used the reactor on campus now use the Dow
Chemical Co. reactor in Midland. The commute
takes about two hours and in some cases requires
van rentals for transportation.
Students who had ongoing research projects that
required the use of the reactor are now-able to
receive money through the vice president for
research's discretionary funds, but Francis said he
has not received any requests for funding.
Aside from the effects on students already in
NERS, the University has also seen a decrease in the
numbers of students in their NERS program.
"Undergrad students are now going to schools
that do have a reactor," Sorensen said.
Recruiting efforts have also been affected by the
decommissioning.
"In respect to education and recruiting, it was a
big loss," said Dave Jordan, Engineering graduate
student and outreach chair of the University's chap-
ter of the American Nuclear Society. "Nuclear
engineering is sometimes difficult to demonstrate
and this was very tangible."
The decommissioning of the reactor has also nar-
rowed the options for laboratory requirements that
seniors are required to fill, which were previously
held primarily at the reactor site. NERS has adjusted
their courses to compensate for the change.

While the University Board of Regents decided
to decommission the nuclear reactor in 2000, the
final stages of shutting down the reactor were com-
pleted last summer.
Because the reactor was principally used by par-
ties outside the University, its $1.2 million annual
expenditure made it difficult for the University to
justify keeping it running, Francis said.
At the time of the decision, the reactor was in need
of substantial repair - such as the replacement of
building and electrical systems - a third of which
was urgent or high priority. Similarly, increased secu-
rity since the Sept. 11 attacks has raised the costs of
operating the reactor, Francis said.
The reactor was one of the relatively few remain-
ing units run by a university. Because they can be
operated with the necessary security, the trend has
been moving toward government-run reactors,
Francis said. "The University of Michigan certainly
did not lead the way."
However, some students maintain that the cost
of the reactor was worth the convenience and
advantage.
"The knowledge the reactor has taught me isn't
something you can get from a textbook and is
priceless," said Engineering graduate student
Reuben Sorensen. "Before, you got some hands-on
experience. Now, you don't really have a chance to
enjoy the science of it."
When the regents were making the decision, stu-
dents and professors in the nuclear engineering

department made a substantial effort to obtain gov-
ernment grants to pay for the reactor's use.
"We made our protest in due fashion, but we lost
the battle," Lee said. "Apparently, the money came
in too late and wasn't enough"
The reactor was originally commissioned in the
1950s, just after World War II. "The community
recently saw the introduction of nuclear weaponry,
while a significant number of citizens of Michigan
lost their lives in the war," Francis said. "(At the
time), as a memorial, it seemed appropriate to
demonstrate the peaceful uses of nuclear energy."
Lee recently requested the construction of an
accelerator-based neutron generator, which would
replace some of the former functions of the reactor.
"It won't be a substitute, but we'll have to get
by," Lee said.
