While Dolan was disappointed
with this year's ranking, he said he
is more concerned with recruiters'
opinions of graduates. He said he
would give more weight to rank-
ing systems that emphasize output
data like the success of graduates.
He said the Business School
fares much better in publications
that use these indicators, like the
Wall Street Journal and Business
Last year, The Wall Street Jour-
nal ranked the Business School's
graduate program second; Busi-
ness Week ranked the school
Lichter also said he prefers to
focus on peer reviews to judge his

tion for graduating outstanding
practitioners," he said. "We feel
that is very reflective of how the

On the peer review portion
of the rankings, the University's
Medical School is sixth.
Smaller graduate programs are
not evaluated each year.
When last ranked in 2005, the
University's programs in political
science, psychology and sociology
each placed third.

undergraduate rankings in August.

"It's a great honor to have our
members on the national board,"
Lockhart said. "They always came
back and helped the chapter."
At the conference, the chapter
was rated as having the third-highest
chapter grade point average among the
more than 270 chapters nationwide.

of Holi by lighting a bonfire in the
evening upon the arrival of the full
moon. The bonfire is symbolic of
the burning of Holika, a character in
According to Hindu myths, Holika
was the sister of King Hiranyaka-
shipu, the king of demons, who in his
arrogance demanded that all people
in the world worship him.
When his own son, Prahlad,
refused and instead worshipped the
Hindu god Vishnu, Hiranyakashipu
became angry and decided to kill
After many failed attempts to kill
his son, he demanded that his son sit
on the lap of his aunt Holika as she
entered a fire. Holika had a shawl that
was supposed to protect her from fire.
Prahlad prayed to Vishnu and obe-
diently sat in the fire with Holika.
However, instead of being consumed
by the flames, Prahlad was unharmed
and Holika burned to death.
Although Holi is a Hindu holiday,
people of different religions annu-
ally flock to the streets to celebrate in

one wants to participate," Srivastava
said. "Today was a microcosm of

distinctive enough, Associate Provost Phil Hanlon said.
Plans for North Quad were first announced in the fall of
2004. Since then, students and Ann Arbor residents have
voiced concerns with the project. The most prominent
of these concerns was the disappointment on the part of
some that demolition of the Frieze building would destroy
the attached Carnegie Library, a historical city landmark.
But since then the University has announced that most of
the library will be saved and the inside will be redesigned.
More recently, the Michigan Student Assembly passed
a resolution suggesting that the University seek Leadership
in Energy and Environmental Design certification on the
project. Acquiring LEED certification means a building
has met some standards of environmental friendliness.
Hanlon said the project's leaders would keep the MSA
resolution in mind but added that LEED certification is
costly and that there are many competing interests already
in the budget.
