LIVING OFF-CAMPUS
Beyond the,
Diag program
expands to new
neighborhoods

'U' group hopes
to unify students
living off-campus
By ALICIA ADAMCZYK
Daily StaffReporter
Off-campus students wish-
ing to better connect with
their neighbors now have more
opportunity for collaboration as
Beyond the Diag - a student-led
initiative kicking off its second
year - expands to encompass six*
times as many neighborhoods as
last year.
The program, which cur-
rently includes 11 neighborhoods
on Central Campus and one on
North Campus, originally came
to fruition after safety concerns
were raised in off-campus areas
last summer. The program aims
to educate students on neighbor-
hood resources and responsibili-
d ties, as well as connect students

residing in the same off-campus
neighborhoods.
Coordinators plan to add
another North Campus neigh-
borhood, much of which is off of
Plymouth Road, across from the
-border of North Campus, facing
much of Northwood Community
Apartments and the Courtyard
Apartments, which are a part of
the West Murfin neighborhood.
Beyond the Diag's operations
are also expanding. LSA senior
Josh Buoy, Beyond the Diag co-
coordinator, said neighborhood
ambassadors living in 10 of the
12 neighborhoods will distribute
off-campus living guides and act
as points of reference for fellow
students. Buoy said the ambassa-
dors are comparable to residen-
tial advisors in the University's
residence halls.
"If residents have questions,
they can go to the neighborhood
ambassadors who will hope-
fully have the answers or know

Report would have

conditions
By TAYLOR WIZNER
DailyStaffReporter
Ann Arbor City Council mem-
bers rejected a proposal Tuesday
evening to pursue a transporta-
tion study that would examine
the durability and capacity of the
city's roadways as an increasing
number of vehicles take to the
streets.
Eight votes were required to
pass the proposal, but only four
councilmembers voted in favor,
with five opposing the measure.
Councilmembers Sabra Briere
(D-Ward 1), Sandi Smith (D-
Ward 1), Margie Teall (D-Ward
4), Jane Lumm (I-Ward 2) and
Mike Anglin (D-Ward 5) voted
against the measure, while Coun-
cilmembers Tony Derezinski
(D-Ward 2), Christopher Taylor
(D-Ward 3), Stephen Kunselman
(D-Ward 3) and Mayor John
Hieftje supported it.

Campus groups
frustrated with
re-registration
By MOLLY BLOCK
Daily StaffReporter
Maize Pages, an Internet
database that has previously
provided information on the
more than 1,400 recognized

student organizations on cam-
pus, is now more that just a
glossary of University groups.
Susan Pile, director of
Michigan Union and Center for
Campus Involvement, said the
updated website will meet the
needs of students and address
issues raised by the old site,
including a lack of flexibility
and poor managerial tools.
Still, despite the multitude
of services offered by the new

site, some student groups have
expressed difficulty with re-
registering their organization.
This has led to decreased rep-
resentation on the site for the
start of the school year, from
1,438 groups during the 2011-
2012 academic year, to 378 as of
last night.
According to Pile, the new
website offers many new
features designed to assist
