FANS

requests for student tickets - about
2,000 more than last season. The athlet-
ic department entertained different ideas
for where to put the excess students, but,
according to Bodnar, they settled on the
south endzone because they said they
felt it was best for the students and the
stadium atmosphere. Bodnar said that
putting students close to the field was a
priority for the athletic department.
"There's just nowhere else in the sta-
dium to put students in a block down
there," Bodnar said. "Our football pro-
gram really likes their enthusiasm down
at that end of the stadium. They bring a
lot of intensity."
LSA freshman Connor Brown, who
said that he thinks he applied late for
his tickets, said that he thought kick-
ing people out would be "ridiculous."
According to Brown, students will not
be nearly as loud if they are sitting
down, but he wasn't sure if he would
remain standing.

"I'm a follower," Brown said. "So if
other people are standing I'll do it. I'm
not going to be the only guy standing
like a revolutionary."
Espinoza on the other -hand
agreed with the move. She said,
when she got the tickets in the mail,
she was surprised by the seats but
was happy to see that she was sit-
ting in row two. She also said that
she would comply with the request
to stay seated.
"You can see way better when
everyone sits down," Espinoza said.
"I am a short person, so it helps."
The number of student foot-
ball ticket requests has fluctuated
greatly during the last 10 years.
In 1995, the University sold more
than 14,000 tickets to students, but
Michigan sold nearly 23,000 stu-
dent tickets in 1999. Many other
schools set caps at the number of
students who can buy tickets, often
cutting off younger students or grad
students first or requiring students
to split tickets.

RANKINGS
Continued from page 1
produce the academic minds and scien-
tific research that advance knowledge
and drive economic growth, and they
should inculcate and encourage an ethic
of service," the website says.
Large state schools dominate the top
of Washington Monthly's list, instead
of schools like Harvard and Princeton,
staples for the top few spots in the U.S.
News & World Report rankings.
A score was given to each school
for community service based on the
percentage of students in the Army
or Navy Reserve Officer Training
Corps, the percentage of students in
the Peace Corps and the percentage of
work-study grants committed to com-
munity service.
Other deciding factors were the num-

ber of doctorates awarded in science and
engineering and the graduation rates
for universities with many students
with Pell Grants, which indicates the
retention rate of lower-income stu-
dents.
Number one on the list is the Mas-
sachusetts Institute of Technology,
which, according to the website,
was chosen not for its renowned
research but for its commitment to
community and national service.
The Washington Monthly added
on its website that the country
would be in better shape if schools
adhered to these rankings instead
of rankings done by U.S. News &
World report.
"Other guides ask what colleges
can do for you. We ask what col-
leges are doing for the country," the
site reads.
