The Michigan Daily - Monday, April 17, 2006 - 7A

ALUM
Continued from page 1A
while the rest of us, myself included, think we need to sit down
for hours to be inspired," Chamberlin said.
The recurring theme from friends and coworkers was Kosto-
va's lack of pretentiousness, even after her fame.
Friends and coworkers say they're impressed by Kostova's
"ordinariness.
Even after her hefty book deal, she lives in a modest two-
bedroom house in Ann Arbor. Her colleagues like her, despite
her success, which is sometimes grounds for disfavor in the
back-biting and heavily competitive world of creative writing
MFA programs.
"The thing about Elizabeth is that everyone loved her so much
that there wasn't even that usual jealously," said Andrea Beau-
champ, program associate for the Hopwood awards program.
"Everyone was just so thrilled for her, and I've never seen
that before," she said.
Petar Stoichev is a character in "The Historian" whom Kos-
tova included as a tribute to the University, which Kostova says
made a monumental impact on her life and played a significant
role in her success.
"I don't know where I would be without the University of
Michigan," she said.
MONEY BRAINS

course, I might take it," Smoot said.
Because the University lacks a course in personal
finance, Robinson said he hopes students will turn to his
Money Brains program to learn the basics.
"It is not rocket science," Robinson said. "If you
can add, subtract, divide and multiply, you can do this
stuff."
Robinson hopes to come to the University in the fall as
part of a planed personal finance speaking tour.

CAAS
Continued from page 1A
studies and Afro-Caribbean studies.
"We're expanding the notion of
what African-American studies can
be," CAAS Director Kevin Gaines
said.
He said the CAAS program at the
University is unique because it focuses
on undergraduate education and train-
ing future scholars.
"At Michigan, we have built
this really large and pre-eminent
program by using a multi-genera-
tional model," Gaines said. "Other
programs hire prominent senior
scholars who generate a lot of pub-
licity, but they're less involved in the
training of the next generation of
researchers."
CAAS Prof. Jon Lockard is the last
remaining founding member of the
center. He still remembers the begin-
ning of CAAS.
He said CAAS was created as a
response to the demands of black stu-
dents on campus.
Students demanded a department,
but the University offered a center.
Lockard would not speak about the
backlash and struggles he and the cen-
ter endured during those tumultuous
times.
"Let dead dogs die and let's plant a
few fresh seeds," he said.
Lockard said CAAS is an integral
part of the University.
"Students from different ethnic
groups have an opportunity to learn

about the accomplishments and
achievements of African Ameri-
cans," he said.
He said he wants CAAS to reach
out to younger students before they
enter the University.
"We don't have an institution
yet that has ties or connections
to high schools or elementary
schools," he said. "We're training
students of all ethnic groups to
understand some of the develop-
ments, dilemmas and successes of
African-American existence and
growth and take that back to high
schools and elementary schools."
LSA senior Kennesha Kelly decid-
ed to become a CAAS major because
of the diverse history of the African
diaspora, which gave her a different
perspective on world issues.
"You have to talk about France,
Germany, all these places that colo-
nized Africa," she said. "You get a
global perspective on a lot of issues."
Kelly said she eventually wants
to work for a nonprofit organization,
dealing with global health issues like
health disparities and developments
around the world.
Kelly is one of 50 students who are
graduating with CAAS majors and
minors this year.
Lockard would like to see stu-
dents take more of the 50 courses that
CAAS offers.
"We ought not have an educational
experience that allows students to
leave as they came," he said. "They
come as boys and girls and they leave
as young men and young women."

WEST QUAD
Continued from page 1A
report. The University's Risk Management
Office is making itself available to work
with students' insurance companies.
"We got really good cooperation from the
students with minor exceptions," Levy said.
Levy also acknowledged the several
dozen staff members from West Quad and
other dorms who "really worked hard with
the disaster recovery company" to save
students' property.
Various moves were made to ensure a
speedy recovery from the disaster.
Daily meetings were held with students
to keep the students updated and staff
informed about student concerns.
A page was created on the Housing web-

site to assist students who experienced
property damage. The page will be up until
the end of the term, Levy said.
Free laundry services were provided for
the residents throughout the week.
To compensate for large losses in print-
ed material, students' printing allocations
were expanded.
At the daily meetings, students reported
that their professors were receptive to their
situation.
"All we heard was that faculty was sup-
portive and helpful," Levy said.
The affected rooms are at risk for mil-
dew, mold and permanent odor.
The disaster recovery company, Coach's
Catastrophe Cleaning and Restoration Ser-
vices, is using machines that blow warm
air to "hasten the drying-out process and
make the mold less likely," Levy said.

that you approve of you! You accept
yourself with your faults and your won-
derful traits.

not get it, but now is the time to ask.)
