University to improve fitness. One of them
is MSmart, a healthy eating program that
helps students make nutritious choices
when eating in the dining halls.
The Coalition for Action Regarding
Eating and Body Image Issues assists
students in accepting different body types
and developing "a healthy relationship
with food."
Although it is geared toward faculty
and staff, the Active U program is a cam-
puswide effort to promote more activity
such as walking, cycling, hiking and using
cardiovascular machines. So far there are
more than 8000 faculty, administrators
and staff members in the program who
have logged a total of 8,149,890 minutes
of activity.
Although these programs exist to
promote more physical activity on
campus, University Housing dietician
Ruth Blackburn said students often
gain weight because they do not take
care of their bodies.
Although some may consider the
"freshman 15" a myth, Blackburn said
many students do gain weight when they
come to the University.
"(They) are not eating breakfast
and eating more food later in the
night," she said.
She added that students who go to
sleep at 2 a.m. need to eat some sort
of meal instead of snacking at 9 p.m.
She also said students' sleeping
habits affects their weight.
"When you don't get enough sleep,
your body thinks it needs to go into star-
vation mode," Blackburn said. "Your
metabolism slows so that you don't use up
as many calories as you're taking in."

Coleman said in a statement.
Some graduating seniors said
they had hoped for a higher-profile
figure to speak at the ceremony.
"We would rather have someone
that could give advice and inspira-
tion that we could relate to," said
LSA senior Porsha Ellis.
Krenz said Amanpour is con-
nected to the University through
the Knight-Wallace Journalism
Fellows program, which allows
mid-career journalists to take
a yearlong sabbatical to pursue
media scholarship at the Univer-
But despite her impressive list
of accomplishments, some stu-
dents said they would have liked
to see one of the University's
425,000 living alumni make the
prestigious address.
"It would be nice if we had
someone decent - small schools
get people," said LSA senior Grant
Morgan. "We are more presti-
gious, so we should be able to get
someone with a name."
"I am indifferent about the
speaker," LSA senior Kurt Bey-
erchen said. "Ideally I'd like to
hear someone I'd recognize, but it
hasn't been that way the last four
Other universities comparable
in size and prestige have nabbed
arguably more prominent speakers
for their spring commencements.
Stanford University grads will
see former NBC Nightly News
Anchor Tom Brokaw speak, while
those at the University of Notre

Dame will hear Irish President
Mary McAleese. Students at Tufts
University will be addressed by
cyclist Lance Armstrong.
Michigan State University cere-
mony attendees will hear Pulitzer
prize-winning author and scientist
Jared Diamond at the spring cere-
mony. Diamond wrote 1997's best-
seller "Guns, Germs and Steel."
This is not the first time gradu-
ates have been disappointed by a
commencement speaker.
In recent years, the University
has chosen a string of less-than-
famous speakers from the founder
of Automobile Magazine in 2004
to the former chief scientist of
Xerox last year.
Krenz said "name recognition is
a factor" that is considered when
choosing the speaker but added "it
is only one factor."
"We want a good speaker and
we want someone who exempli-
fies certain values," Krenz said.
"Because the speaker is also a
honorary degree recipient, they
also need to pass the bar of accom-
Amanpour was a desirable can-
didate because "she embodies a lot
of the values that we as an institu-
tion hold - pursuit of truth and
intellectual and physical courage,"
Krenz said.
Coleman has the final word in
choosing to recommend to the
regents each year's commence-
ment speaker, but she picks from a
list of honorary degree recipients
compiled by the University's Com-
mittee for Honorary Degrees.
Honorary degrees will also be
awarded to Elinor Ostrom, Indi-

request to speak at the spring 2005
When asked if Powell was
approached to speak this year,
Krenz said, "Colin Powell can
certainly consider that he has an
open invitation and that we would
be happy to have him."

added that S4M candidates would like to
create a Peace and Nonviolence minor.
The MPP candidates, though appre-
ciative of the work done to create the
international studies minor, criticized it
as a bait and switch, saying that LSA-
SG's original plan was to create an inter-
national relations minor.
Ray said the International Studies
minor is similar to minors that the Uni-
versity already has that study cultures.
Benson responded by saying that the
semantic change was because faculty
working on the minor thought replac-
ing the word "relations" with "studies"
would be more academically sound.
He said the minor does not substantial-
ly deviate from original expectations.
Golden, the MPP presidential candi-
date, identified textbooks as a key issue
of his campaign. If elected, he said he
will encourage professors to release
their textbook lists at least one month
before classes start so students can buy
the books at cheaper prices online or at
off-campus stores.
Golden currently works with text-
book issues as a member of the Michi-
gan Student Assembly's Academic
Affairs Commission.
Both parties also have different
visions on how to improve LSA-SG.
The MPP candidates said LSA-SG
meetings lack professionalism, and that
professionalism entails "much more
than a 'business casual' dress code."
Golden and Ray want to foster
competition by preventing S4M from
remaining as an unopposed party and
setting up their own legislative agen-

Both pairs said they want to work on
improving the image of LSA-SG with
"The number one issue facing LSA
Student Government is increasing our
visibility on campus," Slott and Ben-
son said in a joint statement.
They added that they plan to contin-
ue the "This Sucks" campaign, which
collects student complaints, and add
more liaisons between LSA-SG and
student groups.
Slott said collaborating with the
Michigan Student Assembly on public
relations could be one way to increase
LSA-SG's visibility.
In addition to a bigger presence
on campus, Golden and Ray want to
improve LSA-SG's accountability and
If elected, the pair said they would
make sure to regularly and completely
update the LSA-SG website, which
they said has previously lagged at post-
ing documents like meeting minutes.
The S4M candidates said they
believe they are the best candidates
because of their experience. Between
them they have served as every pos-
sible type of voting member on LSA-
"This experience, our past success
on multiple initiatives, our extensive
platform and our existing relationships
with administrators and faculty make
us the most qualified candidates," they
The MPP candidates said they
know they can do better than previous
"We've been preparing to govern for
months - not preemptively election-
eering, but actually researching issues
and drawing up plans," they said in a
joint statement.

University officials condemned
the unlawful activity.
"Such occurrences are unaccept-
able," Slottow said.
To combat any unlawful activi-
ties in the future, the University has
initiated an internal review to detect
problems and correct them.
Fred White, a University benefit

internal consultant, has been appoint-
ed to oversee the station's finances
until the investigation is complete.
"The recently discovered problems
with financial controls are unaccept-
able and do not reflect our core val-
ues," University President Mary Sue
Coleman said in a statement released

"I am reassured by the fact that the
University leadership acted imme-
diately upon discovering this infor-
mation, and that a thorough audit
has been conducted to identify and
correct all the problems," she said.
"We will take every possible step to
ensure this will not happen again."

he was surprised to learn about the deci-
sion. He said he had a meeting yester-
day with Associate Provost Phil Hanlon
where they discussed North Quad, and
Edwards expected Slottow to present
the designs as expected.
Peterson said she could not remember

another time when an item was pulled
off the Regents' agenda so late, but she
said it has happened before.
Although Slottow's decision sur-
prised those involved in North Quad's
planning, Henry said it's for the best.
"If we need more time to prepare the
design, it could be a very positive thing,"
Henry said. "We want to make sure this
is a fabulous building for our students."

Yesterday you felt very opinionated
about things. Today you're ready to
fight. Is it really worth it? Isn't it more
important to keep your friendship with
(April 20 to May 20)
Don't get into a fight with somebody
about money or possessions, because
that is what you're tempted to do. This is
not your style. (You generally lose your
temper only once or twice in your life-

You're energetic, bold and (admit it)
looking for a fight. To say you're look-
ing is not entirely correct. But you cer-
tainly aren't going to back down from
(June 21 to July 22)
You feel indecisive today. Your two
halves are talking to each other. The
problem is, they don't agree, and you
don't know which side will win.
(July 23 to Aug. 22)
You have a strong difference of opin-
ion with a friend today. You might even
get in an argument about it. But anger
serves no purpose except to make every-
one miserable. Chill out.

to keep the peace; nevertheless, you're
not a doormat.
(Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)
Lovers' quarrels can arise today
almost out of nothing. You're quick to
take injury today. Do not assume that
every questionable comment is a slight.
Don't take things personally.
(Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)
Family discussions are anything from
a simple debate to an out-and-out fight
today. People are touchy! Others are too
ready to fight for their beliefs.
(Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)
This is an accident-prone day. Be care-
ful when jogging, walking or driving.
The reason it's accident-prone is because
you might be distracted by impatience.
(Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)
Arguments over the ownership of
something are likely today. Perhaps
you're upset about financial matters.
Wait until another day to sort this out.
(Feb. 19 to March 20)
You're ready to throw in the towel
today. Whatever happens is the last
straw. It's important to know that a lot of
people feel like this today. Remain calm.
You have the confidence and power to
pursue your dreams. (Not many do.) But
you know when to wait and when to
