' N.D. win caps weekend of events

University fills weekend
with activities to deter
heavy alcohol use
By ALICIA ADAMCZYK and
PETER SHAHIN
Daily News Editors
It was (pretty much) all fun and
games this weekend.
Friday and Saturday, the University
sponsored and partnered with other

campus organizations to put on a host
of events meant to provide alternative
activities to traditional game-weekend
activities before Saturday night's game
against the University of Notre Dame.
Dean of Students Laura Blake Jones,
associate vice president for student
affairs, said her office had been plan-
ning for this weekend for about five
months. The result was a "five-pronged"
high-risk behavior prevention strategy.
The Office of Student Life worked
with the Division of Public Safety and
Security, the University of Michigan

Police Department and the Ann Arbor
Police Department in executing the
strategy, which included offering alco-
hol-free social events, implementing a
positive public-relations campaign and
limiting marketing of alcohol near cam-
pus.
The strategy also included working
with local vendors to focus their sales
on cans of beer rather than glass bottles,
reducing drink specials and limiting the
overall availability of alcohol in accor-
dance with local and state ordinances.
"The work that we did at the previous

night game was very successful," Jones
said. "Replicating what we did the first
time was really important."
The University also used Neighbor-
hood Ambassadors through the Beyond
the Diag program to reinforce messages
about good sportsmanship, spread news
about University-sponsored events and
advise the community about safe-drink-
ing practices.
"We're trying to have a diverse, wide
array of activities that appeal to differ-
ent students," Jones said.

Upcoming dorm will

This is the second article in, "Where
'U' Live," a five-part series on housing
at the University.
LSA senior Henry
Holland garners
the occasional odd
glance when he tells
other residents in
East Quad Resi-
dence Hall that he's
a senior,
That reaction is reasonable: seniors
constituted only 5 percent of the
2012 on-campus housing population,
according to Peter Logan, the direc-
tor of communications for University

Housing.
The small number isn't surpris-
ing to Holland, who said most of his
upperclassmen friends live off-cam-

the need for graduate housing - spe-

A BLUE LEPRECHAUN

For young people,
parents' coverage
extended to age 26
By IAN DILLINGHAM
Daily StaffReporter
Let's just say it's complicated.
As many provisions of the
Patient Protection and Afford-
able Care Act - or, Obamacare
- come into effect on Jan. 1, the
University and its students are
preparing for potential changes
to health coverage.
One of the more popular
aspects of the landmark legis-
lation is the requirement that
parental health benefits be
extended to children until the
age of 26. Conversely, individ-
uals without health coverage
will face increasingly steep
penalties for remaining unin-
sured.
"I don't think students, for
the most part, need to know a
lot of the details," Public Health
prof. Richard Hirth, an expert
on the law, said. "However, I
think they do need to know
what their options are."
In 2014 and beyond, students
will be provided with three pri-

mary ways to obtain their health
insurance: through family, the
University or the new exchanges
that the law calls on states to set
up. Previously, most insurance
plans would only cover children
until age 22.
For students wishing to
receive health insurance
through the University, the
existingdomestic student health
insurance plan will remain in
effect. This plan is predicted
to meet the minimum coverage
requirements laid out under the
new law, Hirth said.
In October, the U.S. Depart-
ment of Health and Human
Services will open the new
insurance marketplace, com-
monly called healthcare
exchanges, which will allow
uninsured or underinsured
individuals to shop for and pur-
chase health insurance from
one of many partner companies.
Michigan was the 25th state to
pass the legislation. While this
is one of the new features of the
Patient Protection and Afford-
able Care Act, Hirth said it will
not be as attractive to most stu-
dents.
Exchange plans are limited
in how much they can vary

wrong or right. It wasn't even
just about winning or losing.
Under the Lights II, Mich-
igan and Notre Dame, was
about recognition: the rec-
ognition of legends, of tradi-
tion, and that after Saturday,
the lights were shutting off,
perhaps never to shine as
bright again.
The game, the day, the
festivities - it was perfect

enough to make everyone
forget about the extra stuff,
at least for a night. When
115,109 people packed into
the Big House, the lights
shone bright again. The 2011
