The new software creates accu-

It is now possible to see the
details of the Valles Marineris can-

The planetarium is also the first
of its kind to project three-dimen-
sional satellite images of Earth
with only a 24-hour delay onto
the dome. The University received
grants from NASA and NOAA to
test this system.

"When we just look at statistics
and think about why there are so
many more students being diag-
nosed with mental illness now
than in the past, we don't know
why," Glick said.
Campus psychologists say there
are likely multiple reasons for the
increase in demand for psychiatric
"Part of the reason is stigma is,
disappearing," said Robert Win-
field, director of the University
Health Service. "People are less
ashamed and are more willing to
come in for help."
Winfield said CAPS and the
University's long-term counseling
facilities have struggled to meet
the increased demand' and have
hired new employees to accommo-
date the workload.
Glick, who co-chaired a task
force that looked at mental health
issues on college campuses, sug-
gested that a more stressful world
could be creating a generation of
students under mental duress. She

planetarium isn't limited to space
anymore, either.
It can now display ocean tem-
peratures, carbon dioxide levels

the globe.
Linke said he hopes the plan-
etarium's additional capabilities
will attract more University stu-
dents. Before the renovation, most
of the museum's visitors were ele-
mentary school children on field
"My goal is to find ways that
technology can help students and
faculty express their studies and
research," Linke said.
The planetarium will host
recorded shows and live star talks
titled "The Sky Tonight" led by
undergraduate employees. Each
live show will examines the cur-
rent night sky and the planets. The
20-minute sessions address top-

nology allows students instant
access to information could be con-
tributing to mental illness in young
Sevig, though, said he views
technology as something to pro-
mote mental health, not detract
from it. He said the increase in the
number of students seeking mental
health treatment can be attributed
in part to this generation's relative
"comfort with the idea of mental
health." That could be because stu-
dents canuse the Internetto obtain
more information, he said.
Previously, this information was
usually obtained from profession-
als during an office visit, which
could dissuade some from seeking
help, Sevig said. He said he thinks
the whole climate of mental health
outreach has changed drastically
in the past few decades.
"Twenty years ago, counselors
would sit in their offices and wait
for students to come to them," he
Christine Asidao, assistant
director of outreach and education
at CAPS, said a large part of the
outreach process is ensuring that
students know the warning signs
for mental illness and have the
tools to effectively handle psycho-'
logical distress.

ics that vary from the formation
of black holes to the mythology of
the constellations. Live shows are
tailored to the ages and interests of
the audience members.
"Star talks are fundamental to
our program," Linke said.
The planetarium opens tomor-
row with a recorded show on the
formation of black holes narrated
by actor Liam Neeson.
In the future, the planetarium
will offer shows about topics other
than astronomy, Linke said. He
said he hopes to show a natural
history program about the condi-
tions necessary for life to originate
on Earth.
Another presentation will pro-
vide a cultural prospective of
astronomy focusing on the ancient

Sevig said CAPS is working on
an initiative to "blanket the cam-
pus" with resources. Last Novem-
ber, CAPS launched an initiative
called "QPR," short for "Question,
Persuade, Refer," to encourage stu-
dents to question their friends who
may be in need of help, persuade
them to seek help and refer them
to professionals in the University's
Health System who can help.
"It's like CPR," Sevig said. "It's
for peoplewho aren'tmentalhealth
professionals to do something."
Although CAPS sometimes
gets a bad rap because of the long
waiting periods between sessions,
Winfield said the University has
sufficient mental health resources
to accommodate everyone who
needs them.
Many of those resources are at
lesser-known centers. Winfield
said students often come to UHS
with issues the general care physi-
cians aren't prepared to diagnose
or treat. In these cases, they will be
referred to the on-site psychiatrist,
to CAPS or to long-term clinics like
the Psychology Clinic, the Univer-
sity of Michigan Health System
Depression Center or other mental
health providers throughout the
Ann Arbor area. This is particu-
larly true when students request
prescription medication, Winfield

"We're excited to see how peo-
ple respond to it," he said.
The planetarium, located on
Geddes Avenue across from C.C.
Little, will have live star talks at
11:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m., and 3:30 p.m.
tomorrow and at 1:30 p.m and 3:30
p.m. on Sunday.
Winfield said medications
could be responsible for the recent
increase in demand for mental
health treatment. Many students
who would not have been pre-
scribed medication before the
pharmaceutical boom might not
have been able to attend college, he
said. Now because those students
are being diagnosed and treat-
ed for psychological issues like
depression and anxiety at earlier
ages, they're able to make it to the
While some may be inclined to
attribute the seemingly neurotic
behavior of students to some of
the finer points of being in college
- keg parties, all-nighters and a
newfound sense of independence
- Glick said the diagnoses go
beyond the unique challenges of
college life.
"Yes, universities are stressful,
and yes, there's a lot of substance
use, but there are clearly defined
criteria that professionals use to
diagnose patients," Glick said.
"There is a difference between
someone who is really stressed out
on a given day and someone who
really needs help."

wards), all I did was write music. It
was great."
Composition has been a consis-
tent part of Boerma's life. He has
a 22-year history of writing music
and instructing the Madison Scouts
Drum and Bugle Corps of Madison,
Wisc., ahighly competitive summer
band program that draws people
from all over the globe.
John Zastoupil, Eastern Michi-
gan University's current band
director, knows Boerma on both a
personal and professional level.
."The band works like one big
family, so everyone really knows
each other," he said.
Zastoupil said a large portion of
Boerma's reputation was a result of
his work with the Scouts Drum and
Bugle Corps.
"You can ask anyone around the
country, and they know the name
Scott Boerma for marching band
directing," Zastoupil said.
From page 1
"It's going to be difficult."
Sheldon Johnson, speaker of the
Black Student Union, said he wasn't
surprised that minority enrollment
declined. He said it's hard to say
that Proposal 2 affected it directly,
but through outreach work, he said
he saw it affect students' decisions
to apply to the University.
Johnson said the Black Student
Union will continue to do outreach
work, but he said students need to
stop using Proposal 2 as a crutch
and blaming the enrollment decline
on the affirmative action ban.
"Minority enrollment was too
low when we had affirmative
action," he said.

"He's one of those guys who
almost makes you sick whenever -
yougetaround him," Zastoupilsaid.-
"He's always smiling, always glow-
log - he really loves his work."
LSA senior Claudia Ng, a march-
ing band piccolo player, said Boer-
ma's influence on the band hasn't
been too drastic.
But Ng said the seniors in the,
band feel the change in band direc-:
tors more than the underclassmen f
because they were so comfortable
with former director Jamie Nix.
Compared to Boerma, Nix
focused more on the marching
itself and less on the sound of the
band, Ng said. Nix left his post after
last season to study for a doctoral
degree at the University of Miami.
"We have a tendency to focus
more on music now," she said. "We
feel rushed in terms of drills, but
come Saturday, we still look good
and sound good on the field."
Proposal 2 in Washtenaw County,
declined to comment.
It was a record year for the Uni-
versity, admissions-wise.
The University now has a record
41,042 students, 1,017 more than
last year. On top of that, the Uni-
versity received a record 27,474
applications this year.
About half of students were
,accepted and 43.3 percent of those
students enrolled. The University's
yield - the proportion of accepted
students that enroll - has been con-
sistent over the last several years.
The number of students admitted
was an increase from 47.5 percent
last year but a drop from 57 percent
two years ago. This year's class has
5,992 students, exceeding lastyear's
enrollment of 5,399 and this year's
goal of 5,600. It drew closer to the
freshman classes of the two years
before that, when new freshman
classes had about 6,000 students.

online code is not accurate, and
MSA now has reapportionment
"At some point last year,
there was a resolution in the
assembly that changed the

of CSJ approving the seat reap-

President Zack Yost said in an
interview earlier this week. The

any of the changes made to the

of interpreting the code for the

Bouchard said he submit-

plan - without a Public Policy

Rules and Elections Committee,
who in turn submitted the plan
to CSJ. CSJ approved the plan,
Bouchard said.
The plan was then amended
and approved by the assembly
with the addition of a Public Pol-
