. GREEK WEEK
Continued from page 1A
Fraternities and sororities are divided
into teams. They compete to raise the larg-
est amount of money over the course of
the week. Fraterities and sororities of the
Interfraternity Council and Panhellenic
Association as well as Kappa Alpha Psi
Inc., a member of the National Pan-Hel-
lenic Council, participated in this year's
competition.
Team Three - Sigma Kappa, Pi Kappa
Alpha and Delta Chi - received top hon-
ors at last night's culminating event, the
Greek Sing and Variety performance.
Greek Week teams also collected 262
pints of blood for the American Red Cross

and raised more than $1,600 through a
community-wide recycling program.
Because the project encompasses a
variety of events and thousands of stu-
dents, Mike Vostrizansky, co-director
of the Greek Week Steering Committee,
said Greek Week is more visible to the
campus community than the efforts of
individual houses.
"A lot of the other philanthropy we
do gets brushed under the rug," he said.
"Greek Week is our chance to shine and
show people what we do and that we're
here."
Vostrizansky also said this year's slo-
gan, "Not because we can - because
we care," reflects the Greek community's
strong dedication to service projects.
"It's a little corny, but it's true," he said.

GRATZ
Continued from page 1A
members erupted in laughter.
After the meeting, Gratz told
reporters that BAMN activists
often trailed signature gather-
ers, telling people not to sign the
petitions.
"In many, many instances,
BAMN was right behind our circu-
lators," she said. "To now come and
say that people were misrepresent-
ing the issue is completely untrue."
Gratz, who is white, was denied
admission to the University in
1995. She held that the University
had violated her 14th Amendment
rights to equal protection by giv-
ing preference to blacks, Latinos
and Native Americans in admis-
sions decisions.
She was the lead plaintiff in a
lawsuit against the University's
undergraduate admission pro-
grams, Gratz v. Bollinger. The

Supreme Court ruled on the case in
2003, deciding that the Universi-
ty's point-based affirmative action
program was unconstitutional.
But the court did not entirely
reject the use of race in college
admissions. It struck down the
University's point-based system
only because it was "not narrowly
tailored," according to Chief Jus-
tice William Rehnquist's ruling..
Addtionally, in the case Grutter
v. Bollinger, the Supreme Court
upheld that it was constitutional
for the Law School to use race in
its admissions policy.
Gratz launched MCRI in 2003
with the support of Ward Con-
nerly, a former University of
California regent who was a key
proponent of a similar measure
approved by California voters in
1995.

APPLE
Continued from page 1A
professors who "teach every lecture
as if it were their last."
Rabkin's students said they could
relate to his lecture because one of
the goals of his class is to explore how
words can be used to express differ-
ent thoughts in different contexts.
Students also said one of Rabkin's
strengths is his ability to bring litera-
ture to life and to challenge students to
apply what they learn to their lives.
When asked about how he
encourages student participation
and interaction in his lectures, Rab-
kin referred to his motto "real work
is better than homework."
Committee co-chair Sean Wachtel
outlined some of the qualities that dis-
tinguish Rabkin from most teachers.
"Prof. Rabkin embodies some-
thing we were really looking for,"
Wachtel said. "His challenging
lectures leave students completely

exhausted and looking forward to
their next class in anticipation."
Rabkin, visibly moved and hum-
bled by the recognition, expressed
his appreciation of the honor.
"A week after I found out, I real-
ized that I was still smiling at the
oddest moments, feeling so gratified
and humbled at being recognized
by the people for whom my work is
most important," Rabkin said.
Even after a teaching career
spanning 37 years and more than
150 publications, Rabkin confessed
to his continuous efforts toward
personal growth and improvement.
He closed his speech by sharing his
seven adages for life, abbreviated
in the novel acronym "cuvwebs":
choose goals, use time, value peo-
ple, work zestfully, enjoy life, be
direct and sleep sufficiently.
"That's my golden apple, and I
offer it to you in the hope that it will
help you as much as it has helped
me," he said.
