unsure if many students would go
to Slurping Turtle if it is higher
priced than competitors.
"Honestly, I don't really know
because I have to see what the
Slurping Turtle is like so it
depends but I guess there might
be some competition if there are
two ramen shops," Chang said.
LSA senior Jenny Kim said
she was unsure about the new
restaurant's future success, cit-
ing higher prices as a factor that
might make it more difficult for
the restaurant to become estab-
lished in the Asian fusion mar-

thing so maybe if it's a little
more spacious then people will
want to go there," Kim said. "I

LSA senior Lauren Himmel
said she thinks the fate of Slurp-
ing Turtle could be similar to
that of Firehouse Subs, which
was located close to many simi-
lar restaurants. Firehouse Subs
closed earlier this year after 10
months in business.
"I think that it would do bet-
ter if it were to be located on
South (University) and so stu-
dents who are looking for the
same kind of feel or want the
same kind of type of food would
be able to access it from that
kind of area instead of having
to walk all the way across cam-

ideas, room that could be rented
out and create economic power
in the community was suggested.
A kitchen, a resource center with
computers, printers and a place
to study, creative places to paint
or write, safe, private spaces to
talk and places for guests, speak-
ers or other students, were all
brought up as well.
The Trotter House was
renamed the Trotter Multicul-
tural Center in 1981 to be more
inclusive to students from many
backgrounds, instead of only
being a space for Black students.
It later merged with MESA (a
student organization focused on
diversity and social justice) to
serve an even broader campus
"Moving from a Trotter House
to a Trotter Multicultural Cen-
ter is quite the slap in the face,"
said LSA junior Rolly Abiola, a
student manager at the Trotter
Center and discussion leader at
Thursday night's meeting.
From 1998 to 2004, Abiola
said, the building underwent a
facility enhancement assessment
to see if the building met fire
codes, which it did not. Accord-
ing to Abiola, the building was
structurally unsafe and nothing
was acted upon or even submit-
ted to the University until 2005,
Only small changes - a new
paint job and a new pillar on the
third floor - were made, Abiola
"I've come here, I've napped
here, I've cried here,"Abiola said.
"I've been frustrated here. I've
been fed here. This is my house.
This is my room. This place has
nurtured me when I didn't think
I deserved to be nurtured."
It took 10 years for changes
to be made to make the building
wheelchair accessible. Today,
only the basement and the first
floor are accessible. According
to Abiola, all other floors are still
inaccessible to the physically
"We made it work and we are
still making it work, to be quite
frank, because this building is
still not where it needs to be,"
Abiola said the University has
neglected the Trotter Center
numerous times in the past. She
cited an incident on Aug. 25th,
2013 when an intoxicated stu-
dent from one of the numerous
fraternity houses located next
to the Trotter Center illegally
entered the center, dragging
blood coming from a wound on
his ankle across the entirety of
the first and second floor.
Abiola said the police declared
the incident an "open and shut
case" once they located the stu-
dent and left. They did not make
sure anyone else was in the
building or if the students were
safe Abiola said.
After the incident, students
and the resident staff had to
scrub the blood off the ground,
"There was a lack of response
from the University and even
weeks after the incident there
were no crime alerts sent out,"
Abiola said. "We are so disre-
spected on so many levels, on
an institutional level. It needs to
The Trotter Center used to
host overnight retreats for high
school students. After the inci-
dent in 2013, the center was pro-
hibited from doing so, Rackham
student Angela Abiolasaid.
"Not only is this a space for
us as University students, but it
is also a space that allows us to
introduce our communities to
this campus,"Angela Abiola said.
"And simply the distance from
campus now tells (prospective
students) that we are not valued
in this space."
At the end of the meeting,
studentsevolunteered for differ-
ent teams: the data team, the
research team, the short term
team, the long term team or
members at large.
The short term team will
meet weekly or biweekly with
an administrative team to best
determine how to improve the
current building. The long term
team will meet in the coming
months and years to find a loca-
tion for The New Trotter.

BEIRUT (AP) - A suicide
bomber blew himself up at the
gates of a Syrian prison Thurs-
day and rebels stormed in
behind him, freeing hundreds of
inmates as part of an offensive
aimed at capturing key govern-
ment symbols around the north-
ern city of Aleppo, activists said.
Government forces, mean-
while, dropped crude "barrel
bombs" in deadly airstrikes as
both sides escalated their fight
for the strategic city ahead of
a second round of peace talks
set for next week. Opposition
leaders threatened to suspend
the talks over the barrel bomb-
In the past six days alone, the
makeshift weapons - contain-
ers packed with explosives, fuel
and scrap metal - have killed
more than 250 people in Aleppo,
including 73 children, accord-
ing to the Britain-based Syrian
Observatory for Human Rights.
They include at least 11 who
died Thursday - six of them
from the same family - in the
of Masaken Hanano.
Videos uploaded by activists
showed the aftermath, includ-
ing men weeping amid ravaged
buildings and corpses covered
with blankets on the pavement.
"Be careful. There's a corpse
under your feet. .. It's a child!"
someone shouted. The videos
were consistent with reporting
by The Associated Press.
U.N. Secretary-General Ban
Ki-moon deplored "the ongo-
ing aerial attacks and the use of
"barrel bombs"to brutal, devas-

which violate international

law, U.N. spokesman Martin
in other developments, Syr-
ian President Bashar Assad's
government said it has reached
an agreement with the Unit-
ed Nations to let hundreds of
trapped civilians leave besieged
parts of the city of Homs and
permit U.N. humanitarian relief
convoys to enter.
In New York, U.N. deputy
spokesman Farhan Haq said
the United Nations welcomed
reports that the parties agreed
to "a humanitarian pause." He
said the U.N. and humanitarian
organizations have food, medi-
cal aid and other basic supplies

In Washington, U.S. State
Department spokesman Jen
Psaki welcomed the agreement,
which is expected to be carried
out on Friday, but warned: "We
should not be giving credit to a
regime just for providing food
for a few days to people who are
starving, given that's the right
moral thing to do. This is some-
thing they should have been
doing all along."

when a Chechen suicide bomber
from the al-Qaida-linked Nusra

Rebel fighters then managed to
gain control of large parts of the

clashes between the rebels and
soldiers were raging inside.
