MSA joins national
initiative to prevent
higher ed. cuts by
U.S. committee
By ANDREW SCHULMAN
Daily StaffReporter
With college students nation-
wide vocalizing their outrage,
in response to higher education
funding cuts, the Michigan Stu-
dent Assembly recently joined
the cause by endorsing an ini-
tiative to prevent future federal
funding slashes.
In an e-mail to about 2,600
students on Wednesday, MSA
President DeAndree Watson
endorsed the "Save Student
Aid" petition. The petition was
penned by the Student Aid Alli-'
ance - a national coalition of
universities promoting aid ini-
tiatives - that aims to keep
higher education affordable. The
endorsement comes less than
three weeks before the Nov. 23
deadline set by the Congressio-
nal supercommittee on deficit
reduction to pare the federal
budget by at least $1.2 trillion,
which could have an effect on

federal financialaidi
The Alliance plans fn deliver
the petition to the committee
before its deadline to demon-
strate the fight against cuts to
higher education funding.
Watson wrote in the e-mail
that the committee, also known
as the Joint Select Committee on
Deficit Reduction, may continue
to scale back and eliminate more
student aid after already cutting
$30 billion from federal student
aid programs. He wrote that
students need to express their
concerns that any rollbacks will
bring down the affordability and
accessibility of higher education.
"Our members of Congress
need to hear from us directly, so
that they understand the impor-
tance of student aid and the vital
role it plays in ensuring access
to higher education for all stu-
dents," Watson wrote.
To emphasize the importance
of supporting student aid initia-
tives, LSA junior Sean Walser,
chair of MSA's External Rela-
tions Committee, said students
should remember there are two
U.S. representatives from Michi-
gan serving on the Joint Select
Committee on Deficit Reduc-
tion - U.S. Reps. Dave Camp

of 2012, is rated No. 2 overall by

(at Michigan) and I trusted the
coaches, mostly, out of any other
coaching staff," McGary said
during his announcement that
aired on ESPNU. "(I felt) I could
talk to them about anything.
"And I know (Michigan's) on
the rise again, and I feltlike I can
build that program up and make
an impact my freshman year."
McGary's probably right
about his ability to make an early
impact, especially since he'll be a
year older than most freshmen.
Originally a member of the 2011

cycle, McGary reclassified to
2012 after his junior year.
No one on Michigan's ros-
ter has the combination of size,
athleticism and skill that the
6-foot-10 power forward/center
possesses.
McGary's stock went through
the roof last summer after he
dominated the AAU circuit for
the SYF Players.
"Offensively, he can do a lot
on the court," said Scout.com

Senate Assembly recruits

Faculty body looks

feedback, ideas
By ALYSSA ADLER
Daily StaffReporter
Though University commit-
tees are comprised of adminis-
trators and faculty, some also

have room for students who
want to become more involved
with decision-making on cam-
pus.
Members of student advisory
committees are chosen or nomi-
nated by the Michigan Student
Assembly. The student advi-
sory committees for the Senate
Assembly, a group of 74 elected
faculty from the University's
three campuses, is in the process

of recruiting new members that
are expected to be chosen with-
in the next few weeks, accord-
ing to MSA President DeAndree
Watson.
The Senate Assembly noti-
fied MSA members on Oct. 25
of openings on its student advi-
sory committees. Fifty-nine stu-
dents completed the application

permit to enhance the customer

"We want to make this place

The rigors that arise from

tion oncology, dentistry and

anesthesiology at the Univer-

culinary career.
Inspired by his Indian roots,
Bhojani opened Hut-K Chaats,
an Indian restaurant located
on Packard Road, last April,
as well as a second location

the outdoor food court locat-
ed in downtown Ann Arbor.
