Better than mom

Catering to hundreds of stu-
dents at a time, the washers and
dryers in University residence
halls and off-campus apartment
buildings are prone to mainte-
nance issues. Along with long
waits for machines and the risk
of a stranger handling your deli-
cates, many students just opt to
go home to mom and dad with a
full basket of dirty laundry.
But if trekking all the way
home for a few loads of laundry
is too much effort, students can
take advantage of several off-
campus laundry services.
Two local cleaners, Busy-
body's Student Laundry and
The ClothesLine, offer pick-
up and drop-off services at
residence halls and off-campus

housing for students in a laun-
dry jam. Though The Clothes-
Line focuses on the Central
Campus area, Busybody's picks
up laundry on North Campus as
well, according to the services'
Both services offer semester-
long or one-time deals and vary
in price based on the weight of
the laundry. Pick-up and drop-
off times differ based on a cus-
tomer's location in Ann Arbor,
accordingto the websites.
Students looking for a self-
serve option outside of resi-
dence halls or their off-campus
housing have several choices,
including Mr. Stadium Coin
Laundry & Dry Cleaning on
South Industrial Highway

or Champions Party Store,
Laundromat & Dry Cleaners
on South Forest Avenue. Mr.
Stadium also has free Wi-Fi,
and students 21 years or older
can purchase beer and wine at
Champions while waiting for
their clothes to dry.
For clothes that need profes-
sional attention, there are vari-
ous dry cleaners located near
all areas of campus, including
Gold Bond Cleaners on May-
nard Street, College Cleaners on
South University Avenue, Iris
Cleaners on South Main Street
and One Hour Martinizing
at three locations on Packard
Street, West StadiumBoulevard
and Plymouth Road.

Egyptian military promises no
force against ongoing protests

President Mubarak
makes further
concessions to
protest demands
CAIRO (AP) - Egypt's mili-
tary promised yesterday not to
fire on any peaceful protests
and recognized "the legitima-
cy of the people's demands,"
a sign army support for Presi-
dent Hosni Mubarak may be
unraveling. Protesters planned
a major escalation, calling for
a million people to take to the
streets to push Mubarak out of
More than 10,000 people beat
drums, played music and chant-
ed slogans in Tahrir Square,
which has become ground zero of
seven days of protests demand-
ing the ouster of the 82-year-old
president who has ruled with an
authoritarian hand for nearly
three decades.
With the organizers' calling
for a march by one million people

today, the vibe in the sprawling
plaza - whose name in Arabic
means "Liberation" - was inten-
sifying with the feeling that the
upheaval was nearing a decisive
point. "He only needs a push,"
was one of the most frequent
chants, and one leaflet circulated
by some protesters said it was
time for the military to choose
between Mubarak and the peo-
The latest gesture by Mubarak
aimed at defusing the crisis
fell flat. His top ally, the Unit-
ed States, roundly rejected his
announcement of a new govern-
ment yesterday that dropped
his interior minister, who heads
police forces and was widely
denounced by the protesters.
The crowds in the streets were
equally unimpressed.
"It's almost the same govern-
ment, as if we are not here, as
if we are sheep," sneered one
protester, Khaled Bassyouny,
a 30-year-old Internet entre-
preneur. He said it was time to
escalate the marches. "It has to
burn. It has to become ugly. We

have to take it to the presidential
Another concession came
later last night, when Vice Presi-
dent Omar Suleiman - who was
appointed by Mubarak only two
days earlier - went on state TV
to announce that the president
had tasked him to immediately
begin dialogue with "political
forces" for constitutional and
legislative reforms.
Suleiman, alongtime Mubarak
confidant, did not say what the
changes would entail or which
groups the government would
speak with. Opposition forces
have long demanded a lifting
of strict restrictions on who is
eligible to run for president to
allow a real challenge to the rul-
ing party, as well as measures to
ensure elections are fair. A presi-
dential election is scheduled for

ated with fraternities, like senior
houses, are prohibited from giv-
ing alcohol to students who are
completing the rush process,
according to Stepanovic.
"No chapter shall serve or pro-
vide alcohol to recruits nor allow
anyone on behalf of the chapter
to provide alcohol to recruits
during the recruitment period,"
the amended bylaw states.
LSA sophomore Dylan
Handelsman, IFC vice president
of internal recruitment, and Ste-
panovic said there have been no
reported infringements on the
Winter recruitment has been
particularly important for the
University's newer fraterni-
ties like Beta Theta Pi, which
returned to campus this fall after
a four-year hiatus.
Phil Fernandez, director of re-
establishment for Beta Theta Pi,
wrote in an e-mail interview that
the fraternity has been recruit-
ing steadily all year and has
extended its efforts beyond the
"sometimes awkward process of
formal rush," which Fernandez
compared to herding cattle.
"In our case, since many of our
new members never saw them-

selves 'going Greek' before this
opportunity, it was important for
us to recruit outside of the stan-
dard rush parameters," Fernan-
dez wrote.
But Handelsman said most of
the students rushing this semes-
ter are friends and acquaintances
of current fraternity members as
opposed to students with little
or no connection to the Greek
community - as is often the case
with fall recruits.
"It's mostly people who
already have the connections,"
Stepanovic said. "Generally the
guys know where they're head-
ed or have a good idea of where
they're headed."
School of Music, Theatre &
Dance freshman Jordan Golden
rushed four or five fraternities
this semester before accepting
a bid for Sigma Phi Epsilon. He
said several of his friends who
were in Sig Ep encouraged him to
rush but also suggested he tryout
other chapters in order to find
the right fit.
"I saw how much fun all my
friends were having, and I want-
ed to get involved," Golden said.
Two sororities at the Univer-
sity also participated in activities
outside the University's Panhel-
lenic Association formal recruit-
ment this semester to gain new
members. While Panhel doesn't

hold an official winter rush, both
Alpha Epsilon Phi and Phi Sigma
Rho sororities undertook winter
The University's chapter
of AEPhi opened its doors in
fall 2008, and currently has
43 members, according to LSA
sophomore Dana Schneider, the
University chapter's president.
LSA sophomore Jillian Wey-
man, AEPhi vice president of
recruitment, said the sorority is
looking to increase its numbers.
"Because we are a growing
chapter, and we're working our
way back up toward the soror-
ity total number, the Panhellenic
Association gives us the oppor-
tunity to do winter recruitment
and the ability to grow during
winter," Weyman said.
Since the sorority's recruit-
ment events are still ongoing,
Weyman said she doesn't have
a concrete idea of how many
women AEPhi will extend bids to
this semester.
"We're just looking for quality
girls, and whether we find five
or 100, we're just keeping it open
and having a good time with it,"
she said.
Unlike AEPhi, Phi Sigma Rho
doesn't participate in the Pan-
hellenic Association's formal
recruitment process because it's
only open to College of Engineer-
ing students, according to Engi-
neering junior Kelsey Kaplan,
president of the University's
chapter of Phi SigmaRho.
Every year, the sorority holds
its own informal rush events in
both fall and winter semesters,
Kaplan said. She said the soror-
ity also depends on its current
members to reach out to people
they know in order to recruit
new women. This semester, the
chapter added seven members
to its current membership of 38
"Since we're so small, we have
to do it both semesters to keep
our numbers up," Kaplan said.
