community aids
recovery in New
York, New Jersey
For the Daily
As the effects of Superstorm
Sandy continue to resonate
across the East Coast, the Uni-
versity community has continued
to take an active role in the relief
The impactof the storm on the
University students and alumni is
pervasive, as many students are
from New York and New Jersey,
two of the states most affected by
the storm. The largest percent-
age of out-of-state students hails
from New York. There are 1,515
students from the Empire State,
and 1,053 students from New Jer-
Though many students and
faculty were safely residing
in Michigan at the time of the
storm, its impact was still pres-
ent miles away.
Kenneth McElwain, a Japa-
nese studies and political science
professor, said though the storm

did not affect him, it did impact
his wife, who lives in the Murray
Hill neighborhood of midtown
"My wife spent the week at a
friend's place in the Upper West
side, as the apartment's power
was out for about a week," McEl-
wain explained. "She worked
from the friend's apartment, as
the subways were out and taxis
were impossible to find (due to
lack of gasoline)."
Engineering sophomore
Gulam Islam, an 18-year resi-
dent of Jackson Heights, Queens,
explained that though his neigh-
borhood was one of the lesser-
affected areas of the city, the
news from home was astonishing
"I've never seen New York
shut down - it's the city that
never sleeps," Islam said.
He noted that even upon his
return home for Thanksgiv-
ing break, the subway system
was not yet at full capacity and
was still running on an adjusted

RC adapts to
life in W. Quad


Students, faculty
make difficult
adjustment away
from East Quad
For theDaily
The students of the Univer-
sity's Residential College are
homesick - not for their home-
towns, but for East Quad Resi-
dence Hall.
As the first semester of hous-
ing the RC in West Quad Resi-
dence Hall comes to a close,
many students, staff and fac-
ulty members of the program
expressed negative feelings
towards their temporary home
for the year. The move was a
result of renovations to East
Quad, slated to be complete by
September 2013.
RC students typically live
and attend classes in East Quad
as part of the two-year living-
learning community require-
ment. This year their temporary
home is shared with a variety of
other students such as Wolver-
ine athletes, Michigan Commu-
nity Scholars Program students
and other LSA students.
Charlie Murphy, a RC stu-
dent services assistant, said he
believes East Quad was more

convenient for the learning
community, and more likely to
build communitytthan their cur-
rent home.
"It's easier to build communi-
ty when faculty, students, class-
rooms-and facilities are all in the
same place," Murphy said. "The
amount of contact that students
are going to have with faculty
and staff members is substan-
tially greater in East Quad. I'll
be very happy to get everybody
under one roof again."
' Elissa Bell Bayraktar, a RC
French language and literature
lecturer, said she feels the equip-
ment in East Quad was not up to
date and needed to be replaced,
adding that she is enthusiastic
about the new technology that
will be available next fall.
"It was kind of dark in the
basement and the carpet was
old," Bayraktar said. "Things
were getting run down. I'm
looking forward to better
equipped classrooms and to my
understanding the new East
Quad will have all kinds of new
According to Robin Goldberg,
the RC student affairs coordina-
tor, East Quad's extensive reno-
vations include new technology
in all classrooms, updates in stu-
dent' rooms and a redesigned
dining hall. Additionally, the
art studios will be updated, staff
