After April 2012,
Northwood I, II, III
to be reserved for
freshman class
By JEREMY ARMAND
Daily Staff Reporter
A handful of Northwood
Community Apartments resi-
dents unexpectedly found out
they will have to find a new place
to live come next April.
Some residents in Northwood
I, II and III received an e-mail
this week notifying them that
they will be need to vacate their
apartments by the end of April
2012 due to construction to the
buildings.After movingout, they
will have to find a new residence
in another Northwood building,
if they choose, since the other
apartments will be reserved for
freshmen.
A day after receiving the
e-mail, the residents met to
express their concerns and dis-
appointment at a public forum
organized by University Hous-
ing at the Northwood Commu-
nity Center on Tuesday.
Construction on the North-

wood buildings are expected to
occur between May and August
2012.
The updates to the North-
wood apartments are separate
from University Housing's Ser-
vices' Residence Life Initia-
tives, which includes the recent
renovations of Mosher-Jordan
Residence Hall and Stockwell
Residence Hall and the con-
struction of North Quad Resi-
dential and Academic Complex,
as well the current renovations
to Couzens Residence Hall and
next year's revamp of Alice
Lloyd Residence Hall.
University Housing spokes-
man Peter Logan said in an
interview after the meeting that
the updates to the apartments
will include boiler replacements
and the installation of new fire
safety systems. The renovations
are necessary since the apart-
ments were constructed more
thans 50 years ago, he said.
"The boilers for Northwood
I, II and III are near their life's
end," Logan said. "So in looking
at the timing of this, we thought
that we really shouldn't put off
the replacement of the boilers
any longer than we need to."
Logan said it was decided it

meeting today
By JOSEPH LICHTERMAN

Chants of "Rick is wrong"
reverberated throughout the
Fleming Administration Build-
ing yesterday afternoon as about

30 people filed into University
President Mary Sue Coleman's
office.
The student protestors were
expressing their dissent with
the University's decision to have
Republican Gov. Rick Snyder
deliver the Spring Commence-
ment address next month.
Organized by LSA senior
Zach Goldsmith, the rally start-
ed on the Diag, growing to a
crowd of about 100, with some
protestors subsequently mov-
ing to Fleming. Goldsmith said

he hoped the protest would send
a message to the University's
Board of Regents and University
administrators that students
do not support the University's
choice to have the governor
deliver the graduation address:
The regents are expected
to approve Snyder as the com-
mencement speaker at their
meeting in Detroit today.
"We showed today what
democracy is," Goldsmith said
in an interview outside Fleming.

It was perfectly fine, perfectly
