New Yor ity meet Sioux Falls
LSA senior Eric Barstad, a native
of South Dakota, said he has never
met someone from his home state
while studying at the University.
The Sioux Falls native is one of
eight South Dakotans currently
enrolled at the University.
Chris Lucier, director of recruit-
ment for the University's under-
graduate admissions department,
said a student's home state is one
factor in admissions. Students from
underrepresented states like South
Dakota receive some preference.
However, theUniversity's admis-
sions department doesn't send any
admissions officers to recruit stu-
dents in South Dakota, Lucier said.
It would be "resource impracti-
cal," given the low populations of
those states, he said.
No alumni serve as recruitment
volunteers in South Dakota, either.
Barstad said he didn't receive
any brochures from the University
while he researched colleges.
College of Engineering sopho-
more Katya Christenson said peo-
ple from South Dakota are more
likely to stay in-state for college or
go to nearby states like Minnesota,
Nebraska or Iowa.
Some students, though, know
plenty of people from their home
There are 1,684 students from
New York at the University - more
than any state besides Michigan.
Lucier said the large number of
University graduates that move
to New York has made the school
more prestigious there.
Michigan has a strong reputa-
tion in New York, especially among
students attending elite private
schools, LSA freshman Matthew
Gross, like many students from
New York, intends to return after
"Anyone who grows up in New
York City has a hard time living
anywhere else," he said.
LSA freshman Gabriella Kula,
who lived in Manhattan before
coming to the University, said she
came to the Ann Arbor to experi-
ence a different lifestyle. The kind-
ness of Midwesterners helped draw
her to the University, she said.
Still, New Yorkers shape the cul-
ture of the University by bringing
cosmopolitan fashion to the Mid-
west, Kula said.
"Fashion comes out of New
York," she said. "It doesn't come out
Kula said New Yorkers help
give the University a cosmopolitan
atmosphere - and a superiority
"If you took the New Yorkers
out of Michigan, it wouldn't be as
great," she said.
Residential College senior Ryan Smith, a member of the Resi-
dential College Players, sits in LSA senior William Gressman's
lap during a production of "The Complete Works of William
Shakespeare (Abridged)" in East Quad on Friday night.
