student drinking
By PAIGE PEARCY
Daily Staff Reporter
Tickets for Saturday night's
football game against Notre
Dame sold out faster than any
game in Michigan's history.
And though the entire campus
community is excited about the
historic sporting event, Univer-
sity officials are also concerned
about drinking among students
before and after the game's 8
p.m. kickoff. In anticipation of
any problems related to student
drinking, the University has mul-
tiple safety measures planned.
At a press conference at the
University's Junge Family Cham-
pions Center on Tuesday, Athletic
Director Dave Brandon, Univer-
sity Department of Public Safety
Executive Director Greg O'Dell
and the University's Vice Presi-
dent of Student Affairs E. Royster
Harper discussed their concerns
about alcohol intake before, dur-
ing and after the game.
"Our primary responsibility is
that students will have a safe and
fun event," Harper said. "Because
if it is not safe, it really is not fun,

Current Dean
Bryan Rogers
retiring in June
By ALYSSA ADLER
Daily StaffReporter
After getting a complete cur-
ricular reconstruction under
Dean Bryan Rogers during the
past 12 years, the School of Art
& Design will soon be under new

leadership when Rogers retires in
June.
Rogers wrote in an e-mail that
his retirement comes at a time
when he's ready to take a break
from constantly working and
eager to explore other aspects of
life outside of the School of Art &
Design.
"While I've always believed
that teaching, 'deaning' and art-
making were part of the same
creative cloth, I am indeed look-
ing forward to, among other

things, having more time to work
in my studio," wrote Rogers, who
is a painter.
But Rogers also said he'll miss .
working with the ,school, par-
ticularly the opportunity to help
advance higher education initia-
tives.
"I hope that I have contrib-
uted to unifying the educational
programs of the School of Art
& Design and to integrating the
school more productively into

Literary magazine

'U' writers
By LUCY PERKINS
Daily Arts Writer
Ten years ago, the unthink-
able occurred. It was so shock-
ing when a plane crashed into

the first tower on Sept. 11, 2001,
most people remember exactly
where they were when they
heard the news. Photographs
of loved ones, commemorative
memorials and stories continue
to remind us of what happened.
"Ten Years Later," the latest
issue from the transatlantic lit-
erary magazine Granta, recog-
nizes the people affected by the
tragedy. A compilation of stories

of similar themes, the maga-
zine will have its global release
this month, accompanied by an
international conversation Ek-
ing place in more than 50 cit'ies
worldwide. One of them took
place in Ann Arbor yesterday at
Nicola's Books on Jackson Ave.
