STUDENT ENGAGEMENTSURVEY
EXaminn te college experience

Studying abroad,
seeing an adviser
cited as helpful
By JAKE SMILOVITZ
DailyStaffReporter
Intellectual activities, such as
study abroad and internships, and
involvement with one's parents or
academic adviser are key to having
a .meaningful college experience
for students, according to a report

released Monday.
The National Survey of Student
Engagement, an annual report
from the Indiana University Cen-
ter for Postsecondary Research,
found that students who take part
in "enriching high-impact experi-
ences" gain more from their time in
college than their peers, who do not
have such experiences.
The survey lists learning com-
munities, research with faculty,
study abroad and culminating
senior experiences as activities that
provide enrichment.

The NSSE reported that students
who take part in learning commu-
nity opportunities gain various
educational and personal develop-
mentbenefits.
Wendy Woods, associate direc-
tor of the Michigan Community
Scholars Program - a learning
community based in Couzens Hall
- pointed to strong grades, a high
rate of retention and interest in
community service as signs of the
success of learning communities at
the University of Michigan.
Woods said that students ben-

efit from learning communities
because the communities offer a
smooth transition for first-year stu-
dents and better contact with fac-
ulty members.
The survey also found that stu-
dents who take part in faculty
research come to understand the
research process. The survey also
found that these students'spend a
lot of time with faculty members
and gain insight into how they
think and deal with setbacks in the
research process.

A search for causes of veteran suicide

A RESOLUTION TO BEAT THE BUCKEYES

Young, white male
vets at greater risk
By ELAINE LAFAY
Daily StaffReporter
Depressed veterans are more
likely to commit suicide if they are
young, white, male, abuse substanc-
es or if they aren't diagnosed with
post-traumatic stress disorder or a

service-related disability, accord-
ing to a recent University study.
The study, released last week,
examines 800,000 military veter-
ans of all ages who were diagnosed
with depression in the Department
of Veterans Affairs health care sys-
tem between 1999 and 2004. Of the
depressed veterans, 1,683 - 0.21
percent of the subjects - commit-
ted suicide during the study peri-
od.
Veterans are already twice as

likely as the general population tp
c'mmit suicide.
KaraZivin,anassistantprofessor
of psychiatry at the University and
a Department of Veterans Affairs
researcher, said individuals with
PTSD or a service-related disabil-
ityhave lower suicide rates because
they are more likely to already be
receiving treatment.
The study shows that many sui-
cide risk factors - such as old age -

MICHIGAN VS. OHlO STATE
Film chronicles a rivalry that spans decades

Preview showing of
HBO doc tonight at
Michigan Theater
By RYAN A. PODGES
Daily StaffReporter
Though the University of Michi-
gan and Ohio State University
began playing each other annually

in 1900, some believe the teams
didn't really become rivals until
coaches Bo Schembechler and
Woody Hayes faced off in a series
of bitterly-fought games starting in
1969.
The origins of that rivalry are
the subject of a new documentary
scheduled to air on HBO next week.
A reservation-only HBO advance
screening is scheduled for tonight at
the Michigan Theater at 7:30.

The film covers nearly every
aspect of the rivalry, from its
famous figures like Bo and Woody
to the effect that the games' out-
comes have on fans.
At first, Director George Roy
admitted, he might not have fully
understood the intensity of the
rivalry. But he didn't get beyond
the order of the names in the title
before he realized how much peo-
