THE DAILY DISH

'U' prepares foi
University Housing Dir
By Doug Wern

ALI OLSEN/Daily

Students line up outside Scorekeeper's Bar & Grill on Maynard Street.

arole Henry, the director of University
Housing and vice president of Student
Affairs, came to the University in June
of 2004. She's played a vital role in the exten-
sive housing renovations planned in the next
ten'years. In January of 2005, the Board of
Regents announced the plans for a new dor-
mitory on campus in the current location of
the Frieze Building. The dorm, North Quad,
is scheduled for completion in 2008 and will
be the first new dorm built on campus since
1967.
The Michigan Daily: What developments
for North Quad happened over the summer?
Carole Henry: Throughout the summer,
the architects have been working on trying
to get the schematic design, the lasting
model and still looking at those types
of things. One of the main issues is
where should be the main entrance
for the building, and that's what
we're still configuring, the whole
layout. All that stuff is all really
still in progress, trying to figure
out where stuff fits in the building
to maximize where we all con-
nect.
TMD: When you close Mosher
Jordan next year, the freshman enroll-
ment will still be going up. How are
you going to fit everybody since North
Quad won't be completed?
CH: One renovation we did was on
Northwood 3, which is now undergradu-
ate apartments. That has really helped
increased the capacity. We had one meet-
ing with admissions not that long ago really

Don't try this at home
One writer's attempt at getting a fake
By Jeremy Davidson / Daily Staff Writer

n the state of Michigan, it is illegal for
anyone under the age of 21 to purchase
alcohol, consume alcohol or possess
alcohol. The problem is, I'm Scottish, and I
really like to purchase, consume and possess
alcohol. A lot. And so I decided - like a lot
of other under-21-year olds before me - that
I would try to get a fake I.D. I'm not the kind
of person who just throws caution to the
wind (unless I'm drunk), and so before set-
ting out to get a fake I.D., I thought I would
explore my options. My first big decision
was whether to try and get someone else's
real I.D. or try and purchase one with my

picture and a false birth date.
A friend of mine had told me that using
an I.D. with someone else's name and pic-
ture on it was a more serious offense than
using one with my own name and picture,
because it constituted identity theft. How-
ever, according to Department of Public
Safety spokeswoman Diane Brown, my
friend was wrong.
I would only be charged with identity
theft if there was proof of either intent to
defraud for financial gain or proof that I had
in fact attempted to use the I.D. to defraud
for financial gain. Detective Sergeant Jeff

Connelly of the Ann Arbor Police Depart-
ment confirmed this as well, saying that use
or possession of an I.D. that had been forged
or using someone else's I.D. would be a mis-
demeanor, punishable by a maximum 90
days in jail, and a $500 fine. In fact, only 32
states even have laws that directly prohibit
the transfer of I.D.s, and my home state of
Missouri isn't one of them.
Unfortunately I don't go to school in my
home state of Missouri, and Michigan does
have a law that directly prohibits the transfer
of I.D.s.
