DP Day to be highlighted
on Discovery Channel

Students discuss
success of 12th
annual service day
By CLAIRE GOSCICKI
DailyStaffReporter
After traveling to Detroit to
clean up parks and gardens in
the city last weekend, a group of
students came together again last
night to reflect on their service.
About 25 students who were
involved in the 12th annual
Detroit Partnership Day, a ser-
vice activity that aims to improve
urban neighborhoods in the city,
came together in Mason Hall to
discuss the outcome of last Sat-
urday's event. The participants
expressed excitement that the
their good deeds attracted the
attention of producers from the
Discovery Channel, which will
include footage from the day in a
three-part documentary.
Participants reflected on the
day's activities, which included
cleaning schools and painting
murals in the city, and spoke

candidly about their experience
in the city. Some said they had
never been to Detroit before the
DP Day.
More than 1,000 students par-
ticipated in the service day. Most
students worked in teams in either
the Southwest or Brightmoor
neighborhoods of the city. After
doing various service activities
throughout the city, the day con-
cluded with a rally at Detroit's Sto-
epel Park on the Northwest side.
The Detroit Partnership is
one of three organizations that
will be featured in the Discovery
Channel documentary. Business
senior Andrew Bahena, execu-
tive director of the Detroit Part-
nership, said in an interview last
night that the documentary will
premiere on the Discovery Chan-
nel in August and will focus on
social action.
"(The Discovery Channel)
is trying to bring awareness to
things that have great potential
to bring about positive change,"
Bahena said.
Detroit's distinct economic sit-
uation will add to the value of the
documentary, he added.

"Detroit is easily the most
unique city in the country
because it took the biggest fall,
and coming out of it, people are
acting in innovative ways," Bahe-
na said.
LSA junior Kaitlin Liroff,
the education director for the
Detroit Partnership, emphasized
the value of having University
students visit the city, especially
since Ann Arbor and Detroit are
so close in proximity. She dis-
cussed how, compared to her
two previous years participat-
ing in the DP Day, this year there
was a significant improvement
in participants' composure and
patience.
"I thought it went . really
smoothly," Liroff said during the
discussion. "Even if things didn't
go as planned, people were calm,
cool and collected."
Bahena discussed how one of
the most exciting parts of this
year's event was a visit from
Lloyd Carr, former head coach of
the Michigan football team. Par-
ticipants bombarded Carr with
photo requests, though he didn't
seem to mind, Bahena said.

The student panel shares their views on cultural identities at the University durin
last night.

DIVERSITY
From Page 1
Chris Armstrong, who is the first
openly gay assembly president,
said the University is a progres-
sive institution focused on diver-
sity and multicultural awareness.
"In terms of the mindsets, the
University is very diverse," Arm-
strong said. "(It is) filled with
individuals who are constantly
trying to look for experiences
outside their often personal com-
munities."
However, LSA senior Roder-
ick Morrison, the other co-chair
of H.E.A.D.S., said the University
doesn't do enough to accommo-
date its diverse population.
"I would go as far as to say
that the U of M accommodates
for us, but it is not ... an authentic
accommodation," Morrison said.
Later, Morrison added that,
"Diversity cannot be forced in
an environment where you just
place people with different iden-
tities in a room."
LSA senior Rachel May, presi-
dentof Zeta Sigma Chi Multicul-
tural Sorority, Inc., said though
the University is diverse, people
from different backgrounds
often choose to remain within
the comfort zone of the groups

they identify with.
"Despite our being a diverse
campus, we're also very segre-
gated," Maysaid duringthe panel
discussion. "There are so many
clubs and groups and organiza-
tions for people to come together
over their likenesses, but there's
not eoough for people to come
together about their differences."
May illustrated this with a
story about having to prove her
Jewish identity ina conversation
with another student.
"After class one day I was talk-
ing to a student, and I told her
that I was Jewish," May said,
adding that the student proceed-
ed to ask if she was "really Jew-
ish or kind of Jewish."
May said she felt her religion
was called into question because
of her race.
"I can't help but think that if I
wasn't black, she wouldn't have
asked me that question," May
said.
LSA junior Sarah Awad-Farid,
who is a member of the Egyptian
Student Association, said she it
is difficult to find somewhere to
pray during the day. However,
once she finds a place, Awad-
Farid said she still faces chal-
lenges.
"It is really uncomfortable
praying in an open space, and you

g a discussion sponsored by H.E.A.D.S.
don't want to make other people
uncomfortable," she said.
While some students said
they feel the University doesn't
entirely accommodate their
beliefs, Kinesiology senior
Dorian Shaw said as a member of
the softball team that she felt the
University was sometimes too
accommodating just because she
is an athlete.
"Everythingthatyoudo is cen-
tered around South Campus and
the Athletic Department, which
is really convenient," Shaw said.
"But at the same time, it kind of
cuts you off from the rest of cam-
pus."
Because of this feeling of sepa-
ration, Shaw said she has some
friends who refuse to wear Mich-
iganathletic geartoclassbecause
they would be recognized as a
student-athlete. She added that
classmates have talked to her and
fellow athletes about having oth-
ers do their work and not having
to work as hard as other students.
Interviewed after the panel,
Stinson said the discussion pro-
vided an important forum for
an eclectic range of speakers to
express their personal experi-
ences and to listen to others.
"This was an opportunity for
everyone to be heard equally,"
Stinson said.
