"Knowing that I would only be
here for a semester, I didn't want
to sign a lease," she said. "That
automatically reduced the options
I had greatly."
Mahabir found her apartment
after searching Craigslist.com and
Facebook.com's Marketplacp. She
said she pays $350 a month for her
half of a two-bedroom apartment
in a complex with a pool, weight
room and computer lab. Her rent
also includes utilities.
Mahabir said she likes her
apartment but said she does not
enjoy the daily drive to campus.
She said she usually gives herself
half an hour to commute to cam-
pus. Once in Ann Arbor, she parks
at a friend's apartment parking
lot and then takes the Commuter
North bus to campus.
She also does notenjoy being on
campus all day.
"Now I'm gone all day until 11
(p.m.) sometimes," she said: "I
feel like I'm trapped on campus
a lot of the time because there
are definitely times that I would
like to leave, but I just can't."
In addition, Mahabir said living in
Ypsilanti could hurt her social life.
"If people are really looking
to be really involved on campus
Or they want to be around their
friends all the time, I guess you
need to make the sacrifice and
pay a -little bit more," she said.
"For me it doesn't matter too
much because it's my fifth year,
and most of my friends have

White, who earned a MBA from
Ross in 2005, is a co-recipient of
the 1997 Nobel Peace Prize and co-
founder of the Landmine Survivors
The organization, which has
offices in six countries, provides
landmine survivors with prosthetic
limbs, jobs, and networking oppor-

White's lecture, titled "Survivor-
ship: Evolution ofAn Organization"
detailed the core values ofthe Land-
mine Survivors Network. Its goal is
to, "train every survivor group in
the world willing to listen."
White urged his audience to
break from the "victim mentality"
in the world today.
"Raise your hands if you want
to survive," White told the crowd.
Almost every hand went up in the
auditorium. "How about thriving?"
he asked. The audience raised their
To explain his point, White pre-
sented a list of mistakes people with
a victim's mindset make including
"living in the past" and "blaming
White suggested five steps to
thrive, "face the facts," "choose
life," "reach out," "get moving," and
Since starting the Landmine
Survivors Network, White has
been an outspoken supporter for a
worldwide ban on the use of land-
According to the Landmine
Survivors Network website, land-
mines injure or kill about 18,000
people a year. Between 300,000
and 400,000 people are living with
landmine related injures. The vast
majority of these victims are civil-
The number may come as a sur-
prise to Americans, White said,
because wars are typically fought
in other countries.
White called landmines "weap-
ons of mass destruction in slow
Soon White plans to rename the
network Survivor Corps to reflect
that the organization is expanding
to include other victims like those
of genocide or cancer.
In an interview after the speech,
White said he was optimistic about
the political consciousness of stu-
dents atthe University.
"(Students) increasingly are get-
ting involved as global citizens," he

White said both local and inter-
national issues merit attention.
"I would like to see Michigan
students involved [on] both fronts,"
Business school senior Dmi-
try Gutin said White's lecture was
"impressive," "motivational," and
"He's definitely an eloquent
speaker," Gutin said.
White's speech was not without
"My leg is not growing back,"
White joked. "I am not a starfish."
At the end of the lecture audi-
ence members found small foam
landmines under their seats.
White said the souvenir could
be used as a reminder to overcome
life's obstacles - or as "stocking
stuffers for your in-laws."
