friends. It's all based on sharing."
To , accommodate larger
groups, Yon said the restaurant
will feature large flattop grill
tables with the capacity to seat
as many as eight people at a time.
The interior of the restaurant
will mirror the contemporary
atmosphere of Tomukun Noodle
Bar. The new restaurant will be
located next door to Tomukun
Noodle Bar at 505 E. Liberty
St., which will be connected for
for employees to move back and
forth between the two locations.
Yon said he plans to use the
front patio, and add a mini bar
during the summer.

The menu consists of a vari-
ety of raw and marinated meats
that will be cooked on the table
grill, hot pots for several diners
to share and traditional Korean
appetizers, including tang soo
yook and kimchi pancakes.
The eatery will also serve beer
in pitchers and will offera line of
flavored soju, a Korean distilled
drink. Individual soups will be
available as well.
The prices will range from $15
to $20 and will include side dish-
es called banchan.
Tomukun Korean Barbecue
will cater to the dinner crowd
during weekdays and Sundays
from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m., and the
time will be extended to 1a.m. on
Fridays and Saturdays. From 10
p.m. until 1 a.m. on the extended
nights, only guests 21 and older

will be permitted to dine in. The
owners said they hope to eventu-
ally open for lunch.
As a second-generation
Korean, Yon said opening this
restaurant means a lot to him
personally, as he hopes to bring
a contemporary feel to Asian cui-
"I'm more excited about this
Korean barbecue restaurant
than I ever was for the noodle
bar," Yon said. "Just because as
being Korean American myself it
hits so close to home, and it's by
far my favorite type of food."
Yon added that his travels to
bigger cities with larger Asian
populations inspired his idea of
opening Tomukun Korean Bar-
LSA sophomore Jessica
Greenspan said she hopes the

atmosphere of the Tomukun
Noodle Bar transfers into the
new restaurant.
"I really liked the noodle bar,
and I like interactive restau-
rants," Greenspan said.
LSA freshman Eric Hur said
he is looking forward to the
communal aspect that the new
restaurant will bring to campus,
though there are other nearby
Korean barbecue establish-
ments, such as Rich J.C. Korean
Restaurant and Kang's Korean
"There isn't really a place you
cango toon campus forlike Kore-
an barbecue," Hur said. "I mean
we have Rich J.C. and Kang's,
but it's the first place where you
can go to have that social aspect
of Korean barbeque. It'll be a
fresh twist on campus."

In his address, Dingell said the
refuge has preserved and protect-
ed lands, as well as opened them
up to public use.
"We're leaving the wildlife
here to be enjoyed and be loved
and be seen and we're doing it
under one of the great conserva-
tion organizations in the world,
the Fish and Wildlife Service," he

Some SNRE faculty said they
are grateful for the University's
partnership with the refuge. At
the conference, Miranda said she
felt optimistic about upholding
the arrangement in the future,
stressingthe common goals of the
SNRE and the refuge.
"I feel that Congressman Ding-
ell, the school and the U.S. Fish
and Wildlife Service hold a very
strong core value in common and
that is a deep and unrelenting
commitment to the preservation
and protection and sensible use of
natural resources of the environ-
ment," Miranda said.
In comments at the event, Grese
said the partnership aids the
school's students and helps train

them to analyze an environment's
unique ecological and social
characteristics, as well as create
designs to harmonize the two.
"The refuge has been a really
important laboratory for use in
terms of looking at ways we can
use our unique design scales as
ecological designers, to try to
restore important habitats and
create places that really connect
people with nature as a part of
the urban metro area in Detroit,"
Grese said.
When introducing Dingell,
Hartig lauded the congressman's
persistent efforts to preserve and
protect the environment. During
his tenure in Washington, Dingell
helped pass the Clean Water Act

of 1972, the Endangered Species
Act of 1973 and the Marine Mam-
mal Protection Act of 1972.
"Every time the U.S. Wild-
life Services has needed a voice
in Washington on conservation
and sustainability, Congressman
Dingell has been the first person
to stand up and walk the walk,"
Duringhis speech, Dingell men-
tioned the beauty of the natural
environment, referencingthe work
of President Theodore Roosevelt
and his efforts in sustainability.
"God didn't make many of these
wonderfulplaces and it's a wonder-
ful world he gave us," said Dingell.

the Division of Public Safety and
Security in September.
Piersante continued to serve in
the role of chief until his succes-
sor's appointment. He had served

as interim executive director of
the department twice, which was
still named the Department of
Public Safety at the time.
Piersante's time as chief was
also marked by issues of commu-
nication between the University's
safety and security agencies. In
January 2013, these concerns led
to the creation of the Department

of Public Safety and Security, an
overarching public safety agen-
cy that oversees campus police,
housing security and hospital
security, among other safety-
related University units.
. To search for Piersante's suc-
cessor, the University enlisted
The Spelman & Johnson Group, a
higher education consulting firm,

to assist in the process.
Applicants were reviewed
beginning in October by a
17-member committee that
included Timothy Lynch, Univer-
sity general counsel; Dean of Stu-
dents Laura Blake Jones and LSA
junior Emily Lustig, chair of the
Central Student Government's
Commission of Campus Safety.

people are going to keep talking
about this for a while."
Many University students
attended the event, including
members of Hispanic student
organizations and social frater-

nities. In addition to students,
supporters from Toledo, Detroit
and Eastern Michigan Univer-
sity who heard about the event
through Facebook participated.
Alejandro Arenas, a student at
Saginaw Valley State University,
heard about the event through
Facebook and came out to sup-
port "his country."

"It horrors me so much that
my family's still over there and
it's such a bad situation that we're
really worried," he said.
Sofia Altuna, a friend of a Uni-
versity student, also came out to
support her family in Venezuela.
She said she was impressed bythe
solidarity demonstrated by rallies
across the world.

"It's been nice to see people in
New York, in Spain, in France, in
Latin America, in places in Asia ...
it's kind of nice to see people tak-
ing these pictures to know that
there is a group of Venezuelans in
all these places," Altuna said. "It's
nice we got the opportunity to do
that here as well."

"My ideal is that it happens an-
nually, that people just get in the
habit of registering to vote just
because that's a process, it's some-
thing that's important" she said.

"People need to know what's go-
ing on there and give that the im-
portance it deserves."
LSA senior Hayley Sakwa, fo-
rUM's vice presidential candi-
date last year, said she's excited
for Manes and Abraham, saying
they are continuing the message
and platform forUM laid out last

"I hope that people will get ex-
cited in this campaign in the same
way that they were excited about
it last year" Sakwa said. "Luckily
the student body is transient, so
hopefully people will forget about
some of the political stuff that
happened, and still really have a
faith in the power of Central Stu-
dent Government."

demands are echoed in the Black
Student Union's recent set of
seven demands to the University.
Ransby's speech set the
tone and mission for the event,
addressing what she said is the
institutionalized racism at the
University. Ransby said it has
seeped into the structure of the
school as well as the lives of its
She said addressing the issue
requires the University to rethink
its definitions of diversity and
challenge its notion of excellence
and standards when considering
which applicants to admit.
"If we're going to embrace the
notion of diversity, it has to be

that is unapologetically political,"

she said. "We can have a Baskin-
Robbins, pick your favorite flavor
of diversity, which is cosmetic and
decorative, or we can have a ver-
sion of diversity that says inclu-
sion is based on the history of
exclusion and oppression."
Rackham student Austin
McCoy, UCRJ co-chair, said in
his speech that movements such
as the #BBUM campaign have
raised awareness among people
on campus and have inspired
events like Speak Out. He said
this systematic approach is ,an
important aspect of the event.
McCoy said despite any cur-
rent plans in place, there needs
to be a new system in regard to
how the University operates
overall. He said the Speak Out
approach is to include a wide
range of participants to gain a
variety of voices.
"This event has a mass base -
there's a lot of people from dif-

ferent backgrounds, and I think
that's one thing that sets this
apart from, say, the Freeze Out
Follow Up," he said.
In her speech, Ransby empha-
sized the importance of events
like this are for the University
climate. She responded to Dud-
erstadt's remarks about the cam-
pus's improvements to diversity,
adding that the school should not
celebrate how far it has have

"I come here now because we
do research in this library, and
last year when I came here I was

shocked - on two floors of the
library I never saw a Black stu-
dent," he said. "Everyone was
studying for midterms and there
was not a single Black student on
either floor of the library, and I
had never seen that when I was a
student here."
Students each had a turn to
speak up about their experiences
as students at the University and
how they were affected by the
lack of diversity. Rackham stu-
dent Leslie Upton, a volunteer at
the event and president of Stu-
dents of Color of Rackham, said
she too sees a lack of diversity on
