From The Editor
Next week is the last
magazine with me at the
helm. I'll try to go out on
a high note.
The cover story for
this week is one that we
have spent a lot of time
working on, and with
good reason. The Daily's
Editor In Chief, Jason
Z. Pesick, wrote a pro-
file and critique of Uni-
versity President Mary
Sue Coleman. Coleman
came to the University almost four year ago and
throughout her tenure, she has periodically hosted
"Fireside Chats" - where she listens to student
problems and offers solutions - and re-established
the University as one of the best research locations
in the world. The piece looks at Coleman both as a
person and as a president and it is the most com-
prehensive story on her that we've ever done.
Additionally, this week's magazine features a
Republican talking about his experience on cam-
pus, a point/counterpoint on gun control and a
Random Student Interview where our interviewer
was asked out on a date.
If you're interested in writing for the magazine,
we're still having mass meetings and we'd love to
have you on staff. We're always looking for writers
in all sections. Check the Daily for the dates and
times of those meetings.
hy do so many college students eat
Out, especially while under such a
rtight student budget?
They go out because they are too busy to
cook anything, or they have no idea how to
cook anything. They go out because they
are sick of the dorm food. They go out to
be seen. They go out to meet people. They
use it as an opportunity to catch up with
friends or significant others. They go out
to celebrate a special occasion. They go
out to laugh, relax and get their mind off
of school work for an hour or two. They
go out to just have a good time.
Cosi is a great place to eat breakfast,
lunch or dinner if you are looking for a
fun and happening restaurant. With such a
broad, unique menu, there is something for
everyone to enjoy at any time of the day.
Located on State Street and East Lib-
erty, you find yourself in the heart of
downtown Ann Arbor. Cosi is known for
its comfortable, friendly, yet refined and
contemporary atmosphere. When you
walk in, you feel right at home, especial-
ly with the very gregarious servers and
The breakfast/lunch hour is completely
different from the dinner hour at Cosi.
During the daytime, it is a much faster-
paced restaurant - you order in a line
fashion and pay at the cash register. This
is an excellent setting for a quick lunch
with a friend. But, when you walk in for
dinner, you are actually seated and waited
on. This type of setting is great for a casu-
al, quiet date.
Cosi is also known for their specialty
drinks - coffee, tea lattes and gourmet
beverages. Do not miss out on their arc-
tic lattes and fruit smoothies - a perfect
thirst-quencher that satisfies the sweet
tooth at the same time. It is a fabulous
place to take some time to kick back and
relax, catch up with an old friend and get
a cold or hot drink. Another great perk of
Cosi is its wireless internet access, giving
you an opportunity to do some work on
their cozy chairs and couches.
Have you ever eaten chicken parmesan
that melts in your mouth instantly? Well,
try Cosi's sandwich and you will crunch
your way through the scrumptious bread
and into the chicken parmesan that you
will never want to stop eating.
If you are looking for a light entr6e, the
signature salad is a wonderful choice for
you. This popular salad is filled with gar-
gonzola cheese, grapes, dried cranberries,
pistachios and pears all mixed together
with greens and a delicious shallot sherry
vinaigrette. It is light, but filling and cer-
tainly very tasty.
In addition, Cosi has expanded its menu
to include more healthy salad dressings.
They now have three low and reduced fat
dressings: fat-free balsamic vinaigrette,
reduced-fat shallot sheery vinaigrette,
and low-fat ginger soy dressing. These
dressings can be replaced to go along with
a lighter salad, such as the mixed green
salad or the shanghai chicken salad. May
I add that you cannot even taste the dif-
ference between these dressings and their
regular counterparts? Not only are they
guilt-free, but they are incredibly flavor-
some as well.
Cosi's tasteful sandwiches and salads
are not the only entree option on the menu.
They also have their own wood-burning
oven to make homemade pizza with their
famous dough. To say that these pizzas
are gourmet would be an understatement.
They are the perfect combination of flavor
and freshness with just the right amount
of crunch to go with each bite. If you are
a big fan of meat, the meat lover's pizza is

2B - The Michigan Daily - Thursday, January 19, 2006
very October, hordes of six-foot-tall,
els march onto the catwalks of New
York, Paris and Milan working the fashions
for next year's spring season. Though most
people are still trying to get a hold of what to
wear in the fall/winter, is it ever too early to
start looking to the runways for inspiration for
next season? Hell no. My predictions for
Flat (preferably white) tennis shoes: Hope-
fully by Spring, people will finally be able
togetoverUggs -footwear's antichrist-and
move on to the new hot thing: flat sneakers.
Spotted on the runways at BCBG and Marc
Jacobs, the flat tennis shoe is ridiculously
versatile and ridiculously trendy. Try wear-
ing Converse or even Ked's with jeans,
trousers, skirts - anything will do. The
flat sneaker is a great way to get around
campus without killing your feet. And
don't worry about wearing white shoes:
The dirtier they get, the cooler it looks.
Wedges: Insecure and depressed about
your height? Still in from last spring,
wedges are a good option for those look-
ing to dig their way out of height-induced
depression, or for those simply wanting to
diversify their shoe collection. Espadrille
wedges work well with casual outfits, but
if you are looking for something dressier,
try something solid colored or suede. The
wedge looks best when showed off - A-
line skirts or pants cropped at the knee do
this well. Don't be afraid to invest well in
your wedges - not only do they seem to
be a long-term trend, they are a versatile
option for both daytime and evening wear.
Marni and Donna Karan opted to show
open-toe wedges with their light clothes,
while always-directional Prada sent out a
more formal closed-toe option.
Victorian: Lacehigh-necked tops,ornate
detail - put this on while you still can. I
highly recommend wearing as much Victo-
rian as possible before it turns ugly, which
could quite possibly be soon after, or even
during spring '06. Wearing lots of jewelry
and layered necklaces is also a great way to
expand on the look. At Balenciaga, ruffled
Victorian tops were worn under detailed
jackets nipped in at the waist, and slim,
cigarette pants. Though the pant is not rec-
ommended, the jacket is also a great way to
wear the Victorian look.
Frocks: Flowing, knee-length (or short-
er) frocks are flattering and youthful on
everyone. Unless you are abody-image mas-
ochist, frocks will do you a great favor by
covering areas where you are not so
confident. So this spring, forego trips to
the gym in favor of a new collection of
frocks. Calvin Klein sent out a great set of
frocks, including white, solid and detailed
patterns. Floral patterns turned up at
Proenza Schouler, while Marni paired
their frocks with quirky jewelry.
Headband: Spotted at Prada and Alberta
Ferretti, thick headbands are the trendiest
things to put on your head this spring. Wear-
ing them with hair poofed up in the back
gives a mod '60s vibe. If you feel like
your outfit is sort of "blah," adding
the headband is a great way to add style to
whatever you have on. Simple and classic,
this is probably the easiest trend next season.
High-waisted belt: This may sound slightly
Steve Urkel-esque, but it is an extremely chic
trend turning up this spring. Wearing a belt
high up on the skinniest part of your waist
is a flattering and extremely fashion-forward
way to keep your pants up. The best way to
go about wearing the high-waisted belt is over
a loose dress - the belt will clinch you in
the middle, creating a flattering silhou-
ette. Another option is wearing the belt on
a high-waisted skirt, with a top of your
of cold wv
