Brandon: Van Horn
'served the University
of Michigan well'
during her tenure
By STEPHANIE STEINBERG
Daily NewsEditor
Associate Athletic Director
Judy Van Horn is leaving her posi-
tion in the University's Athletic
Department and is taking a job as
a senior associate athletic direc-
tor for the University of South
Carolina, according to an internal
announcement on Friday.
Van Horn, the Athletic
Department's senior woman
administrator, directed the ath-
letics compliance department and
worked at the University for the
last nine years. During the past 14
months, Van Horn worked closely
with the NCAA on its investigation
of the Michigan football program.
In May, the University
announced self-imposed sanc-
tions, and Van Horn was one of
seven individuals who received
letters of reprimand and was held
responsible for the violations.
The NCAA completed its inves-
tigation earlier this month and
decided to place the University's

football program on a three-year
probation. As part of the penal-
ties, Michigan coach Rich Rodri-
guez must attend the 2011 NCAA
Regional Rules Seminar, and the
University has reduced the football
team's practice time by 130 hours.
Van Horn spoke before the
NCAA Committee on Infractions
in a hearing in August. While the
committee pointed out discrep-
ancies in reports from the foot-
ball program and the compliance
department, Van Horn was not
deemed to be at fault in the final
NCAA repott.
In a statement released Friday,
Athletic Director David Bran-
don wrote that Van Horn "served
the University of Michigan well"
during her time in the Athletic
Department.
"We wish Judy well in her new
career pursuit," he wrote.
In a separate statementfroi the
University of South Carolina, Van
Horn wrote that she is looking for-
ward to working with the school's
athletics department.
"This is a fabulous opportunity
for me and my family," Van Horn
wrote. "I am excited to be joining
an institution which holds its aca-
demic and athletics standards at
such a high level."
According to the statement, Van

You're traveling through another

-Rain cloaked the

game.
Everything you thought to be
true was flipped right on its head.

Michigan's offense: struggling.
The defense: playing well?-
Is it true, though? Can we
believe what we see when every-
thing is so out of the ordinary?
In the Twilight Zone, noth-
ing is quite as it seems. History
will show that Michigan won the
game 27-16. That much is true.
The rest is left up to your inter-
pretation.
The first sign of abnormality
came when redshirt freshman
spur Cam Gordon returned a Pur-
due fumble 58 yards for a touch-
down to give the Wolverines a
7-0 lead.

After that, the Boilermakers
couldn't move the ball for the
majority of the game. Everyone
else had exploded for an average
of 34 points per game against
this Wolverine defense - Purdue
didn't score an offensive touch-
down.
Prior to its final drive, Purdue
had 79 yards passing. Michigan's
pass defense usually allowed that
many yards in less than a quar-
ter. Just five teams in Division-I
football had given up more yards
through the air per game than

UNVERSITY DIVERSIT Y
Campus offers mixed view
of changes in enrollment

THE LAST LAP

Students, officials
say more could be
done to increase
minority enrollment
By SARA BOBOLTZ
Daily StaffReporter
With enrollment at the Uni-
versity's Ann Arbor campus at
an all-time high and an increase
in underrepresented minority

enrollment this year, students and
faculty members expressed mixed
reactions to the University's
changing demographics.
The University's Office of the
Registrar released figures last
month stating that undergradu-
ate enrollment increased by 3.1
percent and graduate enrollment
by 6.7 percent from last year, for a
total of 41,924 students on campus
this semester. Additionally, the
office of the Registrar reported a
1.5-percent increase in the enroll-
ment of underrepresented minor-

ity students at the University. This
spike could, however, be attribut-
ed in part to changes in the High-
er Education Opportunity Act
reporting guidelines that altered
the way data on student ethnicity
is collected.
Student leaders and officials
said though they are pleased with
the uptick in underrepresented
minority enrollment, more could
still be done to have minority stu-
dents enroll and stay at the Uni-
versity.

Drunk driver hits Social Work building

North Campus the

response rate
By SABIRA KHAN
Daily StaffReporter
Though University students
completed the 2010 United States
Census at a lower rate than the

national average, accordingto one
expert, students' participation
rate was actually quite impres-
sive.
University students' response
rate for the 2010 census was 68
percent, up three percentage
points from the 2000 response
rate. Despite the increase, the
University's census participation
was still lower than the 72 percent
national average.
