"There is a lot of discrimination around the issue. Many people
don't know someone with AIDS and they think coming in contact
W with them is an immediate death sentence. The truth is, though, that
you can't get AIDS by hugging, kissing or even being sneezed on by
someone with AIDS," Hull said.
Event participants said they felt that many people lack exposure
to information about AIDS and have only a vague understanding
of how it is contracted or prevented. The most common cause of
HIV is unsafe sex with an infected partner. Knittel believes that
people know safe sex practices, but that by having condoms it's as

meeting. The meeting is also open to any engineers who
want to attend.
UMEC council members hope to channel these opinions
voiced at the meetings to the administration. The executive
board meets once a month with Associate Dean of Under-
graduate Education Levi Thompson. Mitchell said, they also
have at their disposal other facets of the University such as

if they are planning to have sex. However, if they do not have con-
doms, they can say that sex "just happened," as an excuse to skirt
"People may be too embarrassed to get tested for AIDS, or
they might just be scared. They might think that if they don't
know they have it, then nothing will happen. Not everyone
knows that drugs can be taken early on to help, and that being
tested early on is an important step," Knittel said.
Testing facilities around Ann Arbor are anonymous and confiden-
tial. Each person being tested is given a number so that not even lab
workers can link identities to test results.

Last year, UMEC was instrumental in the push to build
the convenience center located in the Pierpont Commons.
UMEC's insistent lobbying and involvement with the Pier-
pont Board resulted in the placement of a pool table, couches
and a television in one of the Pierpont Commons student
lounges. "These additions create an atmosphere that is hard
to find in North Campus," said outgoing president Lauren
Mitchell also said a speed bump was put in this summer at
the busy intersection of Murfin Road and Duffield Street in
part due to the insistence of UMEC. "It is such a busy inter-
section that I know of a couple of accidents where people
were hit with cars," Mitchell said.
UMEC works with other colleges on campus through the
town hall meetings that are held once a month. At these meet-
ings, all students on North Campus are welcome to share
their opinion on any facet of the campus that affects them.

Paige Butler, academic relations officer for LSA-
New academic minors are also being consid-
ered through LSA to broaden students' academic
options. The University is looking at providing four
new academic minors for kinesiology, chemistry,
religion and international relations. These expand
on a list of academic minors that were first made
available in 1998.
"It is important that LSA is encouraging students
by providing more minors," said LSA senior Jenna
While addressing these changes, McDonald was
upbeat about the students and faculty at the University.
He was especially excited about this year's incoming
"We've got the best freshman class in history,"
Freshmen had an average 3.8 grade point average
in high school, and 22 percent were in the top I
percent of their class.
McDonald also commended the faculty at the
"You are studying, in most of your departments,
with the top people in the country and the world,"
McDonald said, adding that the University's top
priority is maintaining its national standing for
faculty and students.
The deans stressed the importance of continu-
ing to provide a quality education for all students,
which would include encouraging language study
and expanding research opportunities for under-:
Increasing diversity of all types within the col-
lege is also a major concern for LSA. "We have a
compelling interest in diversity for the excellence
of education for our students," Megginson said.
Megginson said the college would make an effort
to go where minority students are, such as attending
conferences that focus on underrepresented college
hopefuls. Sixteen percent of this year's freshmen
are from socio-economically disadvantaged back-
grounds, single parent homes or are the first in
their families to attend college.
"It's good that they addressed socio-economic
differences and looked at diversity more than just in
terms of race," said LSA freshman Neil Kamireddy
who attended the address.
All changes to LSA will be heavily dependent
on the college's budget, which has faced the largest
reductions in 40 years, McDonald said.
"It's been a bit of a challenge. We've done sur-
prisingly well in LSA and elsewhere despite the
cuts," McDonald said.
The University hopes to ease the budget cuts
with their five-year $300 million fundraising goal
- half of which has been raised since May.
