GRADUATION
From Page 1
timent about different aspects of
the ceremony, the University held
forums for students to give their
opinions and created the survey.
Cunningham said the results of
the survey will drive the commit-
tee's evaluation of possible venues.
According to the survey results,
students planning to receive bache-
lor's degrees in the spring accounted
for 87 percent of respondents, while
9 percent of respondents expected
to receive master's degrees and 4
percent Ph.D. degrees.
About 60 percent of respondents
said they still favored holding the
ceremony on campus, even if it
meant that only a limited number of
guests could attend in person while
other guests watched via video feed
from a satellite venue.
A majority of respondents said it
was important for them to attend
the same ceremony as graduates
from the same school or college and
friends from different schools or
colleges.
About half of respondents also
said venue handicap accessibility
was "Not at all important" or "Not

very important."
Although many students have
proposed holding commencement
at Crisler Arena - home to the
Michigan basketball and women's
gymnastics teams - Crisler Arena
has just 18 wheelchair-accessible
seats, said assistant athletic director
Rob Rademacher.
Eastern Michigan University's
Rynearson Stadium, which was
initially proposed by University
officials as a venue for commence-
ment, has a total capacity of 30,200
and contains 177 handicap-acces-
sible seats, according to the Eastern
Michigan Athletics Department.
LSA senior Greta Wengenroth
said she would be disappointed
if graduation isn't held at the Big
House, but was relieved to hear the
committee decided to hold the event
on the University's campus.
"It would still be a success if it's
on campus," Wengenroth said. "It
being at another University would
be unacceptable."
LSA senior Carrie Quell agreed.
"The best case scenario would be
to have it in the Big House, but this
is a small victory," Quell said.

Facebook and MySpace profiles
and have done it once a semester
since August 2006. The purpose of
the checks is mainly preventative,
she said, aimed at making student-
athletes reconsider posting online
any material that might portray
them in anegative manner.
Van Horn said if any objection-
able content were found, the pho-
tos or phrases would be forwarded
to the student-athlete's coach, who
would then alert the student and
take necessary action.
Kinesiology sophomore Ste-
phen Brown, a safety on the foot-
ball team, said student-athletes
are usually required to visit the
University's compliance office if
objectionable content is discovered
on their profiles. There, an athletic
department official will tell them
to remove the content. He said the
athletic department cautions stu-
dent-athletes about their online
presence annually. Brownsaid offi-
SVEJNAR
From Page 1
said they would vote for Svejnar's
opponent, incumbent president
Vaclav Klaus.
Unfortunately for Svejnar, the
public will have little to no role in
the election. Instead, the bicamer-
al Czech parliament will elect the
new president on Feb. 8.
Garnering enough support will
be difficult for Svejnar, especially
in the senate. The Civic Demo-
cratic Party - which supports the
incumbent president - holds 40
of the 81 upper house seats. That
means he would need to win the
support of every other party on
both ends of the political spec-
trum to win the election.
Svejnar has already received

cials monitor profiles for evidence
of drinking or drug use, sexually
suggestive material or issues like
large sums of money that might
indicate a violation of NCAA regu-
lations.
All of them, Brown said, "come
down to common sense," he said.
Kinesiology sophomore Greg
Mathews, a wide receiver on the
football team, said much of the
Athletic Department's advice
seems a bit extreme, but he under-
stands the reasoning behind it.
"A lot of the things that they tell
us not to do are just outrageous,"
Mathews said. "But I guess they've
been done before, so they've got to
tell us not to."
Michael Parke, a co-captain
on the men's soccer team, said he
doesn't think most student-ath-
letes mind the University's policy.
"Maybe at first they do, because
they have to take certain pictures
down," Parke said. "But eventually,
I think most people understand
that we represent the University
and that we have to do that in a
positive way."
support from several par-
ties, including the Social
Democratic Party, the environ-
mentally-focused Green Party
and the Communist Party, which
account for about 43 percent of
Czech parliamentary seats.
Svejnar and Klaus will debate
before members of parliament
today, outlining their platforms
on national television.
Kraus said that Svejnar has
gained respect during his cam-
paign despite his underdog status.
"It would certainly be a surprise
if, in the end, Jan Svejnar wins,"
Kraus said. "Even if he doesn't
win, he has served his country
well by promoting a debate about
the issues, about alternatives,
about both it's domestic issues
and it's orientation to the outside
world."

'U' fifth in Peace
Corps volunteers

PEACE CORPS From Page 1
a total of 3,326 volunteers since
1961.
Rackham student Amanda
Miller, the University's Peace
Corps coordinator and a former
volunteer, said the Peace Corps
has succeeded because it allows
students to focus on philanthropy
while not abandoning their career
goals. Many graduate schools and
employers favor applicants who
have the world experience that
comes from volunteering for the
Peace Corps, she said.
But that wasn't what origi-
nally drove University alum
Lena Bloom to serve in the Peace
Corps. Instead, Bloom wanted
to challenge herself by adjusting
to a different environment - an
objective that she reached while
working in Ghana after gradua-
tion.
"I lived in a mud house with no
electricity, no running water, no
paved roads," Bloom said.
Two years after leaving Ann
Arbor, Bloom was hard at work
keeping parasitic worms out of
the water supply in a Ghanaian
village of 1,000. While there,
she also taught health education
classes.
Now, Bloom is back at the
University, pursuing a master's
degree in the School of Public
Health.
But some students question the
motivations of Peace Corps par-
ticipants and their reasoning for
joining the program. LSA senior
Claudia Williams said she thinks
some volunteers lack the experi-
ence necessary to tackle the prob-
lems in developing countries.

"Who benefits the most ifa 20-
year-old gets sent to Sub-Sahara
Africa to help a farmer?" she
asked.
Though Williams applauded
the educational value of travel,
she said programs like the Peace
Corps are patronizing the people
of developing countries.
Williams said she was skepti-
cal of the "do-gooder mentality"
espoused by Peace Corps volun-
teers.
Bloom had her criticisms, too,
saying the Peace Corps some-
times includes people who aren't
completely committed to service.
Some, she said, "didn't know what
else to do," choosing the program
because "their life was at a cross-
roads."
Bloom said many take the
opportunity to travel and enjoy
themselves rather than work
hard.
John Greisberger, the director
of the University's International
Center, said that while some peo-
ple apply to the Peace Corps for
the wrong reasons, the program
still produces good results over-
all.
Bloom felt the same way. She
said that after the two years in
Ghana, she learned more about
herself than the Ghanaians
learned from her.
While happy about the person-
al growth, Bloom said it's impor-
tant for people to realize there's
a limit to how much of a differ-
ence the Peace Corps can make in
developing countries.
"If you're looking at Peace
Corps as a serious development
agent, you've got a problem," she
said.
