The DREAM Act -which would
only be applicable for people who
entered the United States prior to
age 16 years and lived in the coun-
try for five years - was voted down
by the U.S. Senate in December.
The event began with a speech
from Noe Ortega, a research asso-
ciate for the National Forum on
Higher Education for the Public
Good. Ortega, who specializes in
studies of undocumented students
and higher education access, said
it's important to discuss the group
of underrepresented students that
the country "chooses to systemati-
cally deny" higher education.
Ortega said Michigan is esti-
mated to have between 55,000 and
125,000 undocumented students,
which makes up about 1.6 percent
of the state's total population. He
said because these students are a
significant part of the population, it
is vital to allow them to have access
Over the summer, Ortega stud-
ied 59 private institutions in Michi-
gan. His study included four-year,
two-year and private colleges and
universities and analyzed the dif-
ferences involved in admittance and
financial aid at each of the colleges.
Ortega said his research con-
cluded that 22 of the institutions
had "favorable policies" that allow
undocumented students to attend
college. In these institutions, the
students have different tuition
rates; some charge in-state tuition
while others charge undocument-
ed students out-of-state or interna-
tional tuition. None of the schools
offered federal financial aid for the
Public Policy and Rackham
graduate student Marisol Ramos
also spoke at the event and said
she worked with youth groups in
New York that were interested in
advocating for the DREAM Act
before moving to Michigan. She
said she thinks the political and
social climate in the United States
has grown increasingly tense since
Sept. 11, and America's youth has
responded by mobilizing and fight-
ing for what they believe in.
Because of the increased secu-
rity after the attacks on the World
Trade Center, Ramos said, there
was a shift in efforts from the cre-
ation of legislation for comprehen-
sive immigration reform to building
a border and increasing security.
Laura Corrunker, a Ph.D.
candidate in anthropology at
Wayne State University, has been
researching the DREAM Act for
the past year and said she believes
in "activist anthropology," which
she defines as giving back to the
community while simultaneously
"You get a chance to give back,
especially to the people who are so
willing to give you their time," Cor-
She added that when people
hear real-life stories from undoc-
umented citizens, they are more
inclined to pay attention to issues
like the DREAM act, which is why
events like the one held last night
are so important in garnering sup-
port for the issue.
Jose Franco, co-founder of One
Michigan, said learning about the
DREAM Act gave him something
to fight for. Growing up undocu-
mented, Franco said he realized it
would be hard to attend college, so
he stopped attending school and
let his grades slip. Upon learning
about the DREAM Act, he realized
he could change the direction his
life was heading.
After corresponding with other
undocumented students online, he
organized the Michigan DREAM
Camp last year, which spurred the
creation of One Michigan. He said
the program allows youth to be
honest about their legal status.
"If people know about your sta-
tus, you're safer because more peo-
ple can help you," Franco said.

ing since December, andstudent-
athletes raised their own money
prior to the event. Donations are
also still being accepted.
Current Cincinnati Bengals
linebacker Dhani Jones, a Uni-
versity alum, was the event
emcee. SAAC asked Jones to
host Mock Rock in order to spark
fundraising for the event.,
Each Mock Rock judge -
including new Michigan football
head coach Brady Hoke - had a
connection to the University.
"We thought it would be a
great way to get him involved
and make him feel welcome,"
Other judges included Jan
Brandon, wife of University Ath-
letic Director Dave Brandon,
Dan Sygar, Letterwinners M
Club president and a University
alum, and Elise Ray, an Olympic
bronze medalist and University
Before the event began, the
auditorium filled with student-
athletes waiting for their turn
to perform. LSA freshman and
Michigan wrestler Jordan Smith
said he was enthusiastic about
going on stage.
"We're going to be really
funny. Probably the best one out
there," Smith said, of the wres-
tling team's act.
Smith said the team members
put together their skit in about
"It was rigorous though," he
But other teams, like the
Michigan Marching Band, spent
multiple days practicing each
week for the past month to pre-
pare. The work paid off as the
band took first place for their
"Barbie and Ken" Michigan-
Engineering senior Kris-
ten Angonese, a member of
the Michigan Marching Band,
expressed her excitement after
"The last couple years we've
been doing really well, but it's
nice to finally win," she said.
Other performances were the
men's rowing team's Pokemon
skit, which included elaborate
costumes and girls dressed as
lightning and fire being carried
acrossthe stage during the Poke-
Many skits included partial
nudity. The men's swimming
and diving team ended with each
member in a skimpy Speedo dur-
ing their "Somewhere Over the
"I hope our (football) players
don't come out in what they had
on," Hoke said while judging the
men's swimming and divingskit.
LSA senior and Michigan
football player Ryan Van Bergen
said the football team had three
practices a week to prepare for
the event. The team finished in
second place with its "Hidden
Talents" song and dance act.
"We found a place for every-
one who wanted an opportu-
nity ... kind of a hodge-podge of
everybody," Van Bergen said,
adding that many of the players
have hidden musical talents.
University alum and former
Michigan football player Zoltan
Mesko, who is a player with the
New England Patriots, was also
a judge at the event. After the
show, Mesko said he enjoyed
the experience and would defi-
nitely participate as a judge in
"I thought there (were) some
surprises," Mesko said. "There
were alot ofnon-dancing acts."
ESPN analyst Adam Schefter,
a University and Michigan Daily
alum, also judged the teams at
Mock Rock. It was "a great night
for a great cause," he said.
"You can see a lot of work
went into this," Schefter added.
