group were to be named Union of the M, it would
also be known as the Ms. The group is reputed to
have had a large hand in the construction of the
"The 'union' serves multiple purposes as a
word that links us, and of course is also a physi-
cal symbol as the building and place on campus
where diverse student leaders come together for
campus," the e-mail said.
Alternatives are the Ms, M Society, Order of
the M and the M Circle, the e-mail said.
Maestus is a Latin word for passionate fire,
according to the e-mail.
"Using a Latin word can also augment the
theme on our University seal: Artes, Scientia,
Veritas (art, science, truth)," the e-mail said.
Listed alternatives are M fire, Blue Flame and
Ring of Fire.
The Order of the Angell is at least partly a nod
to James B. Angell - the University's president
from 1871 to 1909, a founder of the society and the
namesake of Angell Hall.
It's also a nod to the society's past.
"The 'order' symbolizes how we have evolved
over time, using different names, but truly being a
part of one long-lasting legacy," the e-mail said.
Listed alternatives to this option are The Angell
Society, the Angells and The Order.
Munus means service, duty or gift in Greek
"It emphasizes the duty that we have to cam-
pus to serve as leaders while also acknowledg-
ing the gift or honor that is bestowed upon each
person who is tapped into the organization," the
the michigan daily
Muneris, a Latin word with a similar meaning
to Munus, is suggested as an alternative.
The e-mail identifies the group's guidelines in
picking a new name. The first is that it should be
"The name/theme should be somewhat enig-
matic in order to capture people's attention and
peak their curiosity about the group in a positive
way," the e-mail said.
The second criterion is that the name provide
a connection to the past but allow the group to
"easily expand upon a central idea that will create
new layered and meaningful traditions."
The third is that it let the group "continue to
incorporate our commitment to (both the past
and future of) Michigan."
The fourth is that emphasize the group's role of
campus leadership. The final criterion is that it be
distinct enough from previous monikers.
"(It should not) divert future years from their
goals to Fight Like Hell," the e-mail said.
But the e-mail goes on to say that the name
"must respect and honor the path that brought
The society's past has been fraught with con-
troversy. Some on campus view the group as
synonymous with racism, sexism and elitism.
However, it has undergone significant change as
of late, including releasing the names of its latest
two classes of members, the "prides" of 2006 and
It still has not made public its numerous "Hon-
orary Angells," at least some of who are Univer-
sity administrators and faculty.
The society began admitting women in 2000
and has recently started tapping a more diverse
membership, which can be seen in members'
political viewpoints, races and sexual orienta-

hike and price gouging.
"It comes as no surprise that this
ordinance has raised rates," said Tom
Gruber, a co-owner of Gruber Manage-
ment, an Ann Arbor landlord. "When
you spread out the market, that's how
you get your rents."
Ehn agreed, saying that the princi-
ple of supply and demand has justified
raising rents because of the December
surge of potential renters.
Council member Leigh Greden
(D-Ward 3) posited another explana-
tion for the rent increases this year. He
suggested that abnormally large fresh-
man classes in 2004 and 2005 caused an
increase in sophomores and juniors this
year looking for off-campus housing.
Students and landlords alike have
tried to circumvent the new regula-
Several tenant's association mem-
bers and landlords said they have heard
rumors of both students and landlords
cheating on leasing agreements by
signing tenants before December.
Most of the cheating stories con-
cerned waiver fees. The ordinance has
loophole that allowes landlords and
prospective tenants to sign leases early
if the current tenants sign a waiver.
Ehn said some renters charged
$100 fees in exchange for signing the
waiver. Fred Gruber, co-owner of Gru-
ber Management, cited a more costly
incident. He said he heard reports that
some renters had tried to charge $600
to several groups of prospective ten-
ants for their waiver. Gruber said his
firm wasn't involved with the transac-
tion, so he signed the house to the first
group of tenants who approached him
after the waiver was submitted.
Student representatives at the meet-
ing said they had only heard a few sto-
ries of students exploiting the waiver
"I have heard very few stories of
cheating, but that's not the whole com-
munity," said Matt Stoker, a member
of the Michigan Student Assembly's
External Relations Committee.
Ehn said students who followed the
rules were caught in a December sign-
"We predicted that there would be a
frenzy and there was," she said.
Bret Chaness, chair of the MSA
Campus Safety Committee, acknowl-
edged the rush.
"There is going to be a panic on the
part of the students because they want
the better properties," he said.
Gruber said his company has already
leased properties that would not nor-
mally be signed until spring because of
the frenzy created by the ordinance.
Other rental companies have
observed similar effects. Campus Man-
agement representatives Chris Heaton
and Mark Hannaford said students
were better prepared for the leasing
deadline, but they said students were
concerned about availability.
Thursday, January 18, 2007 - 7A
"From our perspective, there was a
lot of pent-up demand about that sign-
ing point," Hannaford said. "That says
to me that people were worried."
But at a University-sponsored hous-
ing fair last week, many students said
they didn't feel rushed to sign lease
At the meeting last night, represen-
tatives from student co-ops and frater-
nities also said that they supported the
Greden, one of the ordinance's
strongest backers on City Council,
said a housing rush is only perceived
because community members have not
adjusted to the new law.
"I don't see a systematic problem
with the law itself," Greden said.
Hannaford also said that this year
he noticed more people were delaying
waiving their renewals in order to save
their rentals for friends.
Melissa Goldstein, director of Off-
Campus Housing for the University,
said that listings on the University's
off-campus website are typical of this
time last year.
"Right now we're over 1,000 listings
on the site," she said. "There is a lot of
housing out there."
The ordinance mandates that City
Council review the law this spring.
Nick Assanis, chair of MSA's Exter-
nal Relations Committee and the
assembly's liaison to the City Council,
said he supports the ordinance. Assa-
nis said MSA is planning educational
events about the ordinance.
