the trek to the nation's capitol.
The program began with a
rally at the National Mall that
featured prominent speakers
such as Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.)
and former presidential can-
didate Rick Santorum. Young
people and members of other
student groups constituted the
majority of the nearly half mil-

junior Tori Criswell, president
of Students for Life at Michigan.
"It was really inspiring to

see," Criswell said. "Our gen-
eration is more pro-life than any
other generation before. It was a
really moving experience to see
everyone united for this cause."
After the rally, participants
marched to the steps of the U.S.

One semester

CAMPUS GROUPS
Students talk sex at
Res. College forum

CSG president,
colleagues reflect
on first semester
By GIACOMO BOLOGNA
Daily StaffReporrer
It was only a few hours ear-
lier that his flight touched down
in Michigan, but Central Stu-
dent Government President
Manish Parikh made sure he
was at assembly's first meeting
of the semester on Jan.15.
After a frenzied CSG presi-
dential election in March that
left candidates and their sup-
porters completely immersed in
student government, Parikh -
who won a plurality of the stu-
dent vote after barely escaping
disqualification from the elec-
tion - faces a similarly hectic
schedule every day.
A typical weekday for
Parikh can entail responding
to 50 to 60 e-mails, attending
as many as five meetings and
doing other student govern-
ment related work that some

days totals eight to nine hours
- all of which results in about
five hours of sleep, he said.
Former CSG President
DeAndree Watson, who now
works in the office of Charles
Pugh, president of the Detroit
City Council, said such is the
life of a student body presi-
dent.
"Whenever I wasn't in class
or sleeping, I was doing stu-
dent government work," Wat-
son said, addingthat "academic
sacrifices" were made. He said
that being a student and student
body president is like "two full-
time jobs."
FROM PLATFORM
TO PRESIDENCY
During his term, Parikh
has been faced with possible
graduate student secession
from CSG and a November
student government election
plagued with several missed
deadlines and a faulty ballot.
Still, Parikh and his adminis-
tration have fulfilled or made

Group brings
sex discussion to
informal setting
By RACHEL PREMACK
Daily StaffReporter
LSA sophomore Adam Mol-
nar is the leader of Sex Forum,
a Residential College student
forum that discusses mastur-
bation, fetishes and a myriad of
other topics that would make
most high school sex education
teachers blush,
His parents are okay with it.
"They're all for it; they
thought it was a good idea,"
Molnar said. "They also don't
understand why it's so hard
to receive sexual information
that's not from an awkward,
older adult figure."
That's just one goal of Sex
Forum which is in its seventh
year. The group educates its
members on contraceptives
and safe sex practices, often
using demonstrative condoms
and dental dams. There are also
occasional field trips to Ann
Arbor's Safe Sex Store.
"Last meeting they asked
us what we wanted to learn.
about," Irani said "Topics var-
ied from BDSM to asexual-
ity to sexual fetishes,.and it all

sounds so interestingto me."
At each meeting, the 10-per-
son group discusses a few
issues selected by forum mem-
bers. Molnar said an upcom-
ing meeting will discuss rape,
hook-up and college sex cul-
tures. In the past, the group has
watched documentaries on var-
ious topics including BDSM as
well as videos in the media that
portray gender roles unfairly.
RC forums are student
groups that focus on an inter-
ests including art, LGBTQ
issues or film. RC students can
get credit for their involvement,
and most courses meet for an
hour a week.
"It's also a place where
you're not receiving opinions
or, 'This is what I think,"' Mol-
nar said. "We're trying to give
each other facts. It's not just
like talking with your friends
like, 'So, what do you think
about this?' and just getting an
opinion that could be unsub-
stantiated."
One event at the forum is
the Gender Panel. The panel
consists of members of one sex
who respond to anonymous
questions from members of the
other sex.

work goes wrong

Daily News Editor
A fire broke out at a multi-
tenant house on the corner of
East Williams and South Divi-
sion Streets at about 6 p.m. on
Friday.
The fire required a response

from all five stations in the city
of Ann Arbor as well as fire
trucks from Pittsfield Town-
ship, Ypsilanti and Ypsilanti
Township, according to Ann
Arbor Fire Chief Chuck Hub-
bard.
"We probably had a two- or
three-minute response time,"
AAFD Battalion Chief Randy
Menard said on scene. "Well,

a little bit, but it wasn't too bad
today."
