draws customers
from CVS
By CHRISTY SONG
Daily Staff Reporter
From slushies to frozen
yogurt to creating personalized
packs of beer, students have a
new option for their late-night
drug store needs. Following
months of renovations, Wal-
greens opened on the corner of
South State Street and North
University Avenue on Dec. 31.,
Across the street from Cen-
tral Campusthe two-story con-
venience store even matched its
interior decor to University col-

candy, cosmetics and other
necessities.
The first floor is primarily
devoted to snacks and drinks
but will soon include a cooler
for fresh, health-friendly foods
like sandwiches and salads.
The store also plans to pro-
vide a wider variety of produce
goods to serve students who are
unable to go to grocery stores.
The second floor consists
of mostly makeup, hair acces-
sories, toiletries and personal
items, including a small selec-
tion of kitchenware.
The store will face competi-
tion from CVS, just a short walk
down State Street. CVS, which
opened in March 2011, is also a
two-story pharmacy that car-

to largely the same pool of cus-
tomers.
Tracie Klotz, Walgreen's
store manager, said it has
always been her dream to set up
a store in the downtown area.
Because most employees are
alumni or University students,
she said it seemed natural to be
near campus.
Klotz wanted to keep some
of the building's heritage dur-
ing construction - such as
keeping its skylights - while
incorporating modern aspects
as well. She said she catered the
store decorations and inventory
to meet the needs and demands
of students.
Competing with CVS will
always be a factor, but Klotz

erately beat her competitors'
offerings, as the prices of the
products are fairly similar to
those of CVS and identical to
the other Walgreens locations
in Ann Arbor.
In order to incentivize cus-
tomers, Walgreens is currently
distributing coupons for $2 off
purchases of $10 and will have
their grand opening celebration
on Feb. 7.
"We can make anythinghap-
pen, so it's going to be demand-
based," Klotz said. "But we will
always have the necessities,
since we are a pharmacy. We
just want to see what we can do.
We want to be great.

Connector service
aims to encourage
engagement and
learning in Motor City
By CLAIRE BRYAN
Daily Staff Reporter
For students itching for a
Wednesday afternoon trek to
downtown Detroit, finding a ride
just got easier.
Beginning on Jan. 15, the MDe-
troit Center Connector will begin a
new Wednesday bus service from
Ann Arbor to Detroit.
Students will also be able to
reserve a spot on the bus starting
Jan. 13 through MDCC's website.
The website also notes if a bus is
not runningdue to harsh weather.
The Transforming Learning for
the Third Century Fund - part
of a $50 million grant campaign
designed to improve teaching
and learning at the University in
advance of the institution's 2017
bicentennial - has allowed the
MDCC to offer a free Wednesday
bus service along with the Friday

and Saturday bus services in oper-
ation since last semester.
Mike Morland, the University's
Detroit Center communications
director, said feedback on the
route's success prompted consid-
eration of an additional day.
"Our first semester was very
successful," Morland said. "We
received a lot of feedback from
people saying how much they
enjoyed the service and how it
definitely improved their quality
and their mission of whatever they
were looking to do whether it was
to visit Detroit, work in Detroit or
even hop on abus to come home."
This summer, an initial sur-
vey sent to students showed that
Wednesday was a popular day for
students interested in the bus ser-
vice, in addition to Fridays and
Saturdays. Additional surveys
were distributed this fall, and
Wednesday again received sub-
stantial interest.
The Michigan Detroit Center,
the drop-off location for MDCC
buses, serves as both an event
center as well as a community
outreach and engagement facility.

CAMPUS LIFE
Help desks aid
troubles with
Wi-Fi network

With UM Wireless
gone, connecting to
MWireless remains
a challenge for many
By ARIANA ASSAF
Daily StaffReporter
While the University is offer-
ing walk-up assistance to help
students connect during the first
few weeks of classes, frustration
caused by dropped MWireless
connections may be an issue of
the past.
As students and faculty tran-
sition from the now defunct UM
Wireless Network to the new
campus network MWireless,
the University has created "help
desks" to provide support for
those experiencing difficulties.
The desks are organized and
hosted by the College of Engi-
neering,the Computer Showcase,
Information and Technology
Services, ITS Campus Comput-
ing Sites, the Shapiro Under-
graduate Library and University
Housing.
A combination of IT staff
and students who work at the
Computer Showcase and other
Campus Computing Sites will be
working through January 19 to
address connectivity issues.
The desks are located in Angell
Hall, the Undergraduate Library
and Pierpont Commons. These
organizations have provided a
full list of hours, so students can

get help at the place and time
most convenient for them. Palms
said in the future, help desks will
likely be set up at the start of the
fall and winter semesters.
MWireless was implemented
in 2009 and is the preferred
Wi-Fi network at the Univer-
sity. Information and Technol-
ogy Services made MWireless
the University's premiere Wi-Fi
network over the summer to con-
tinue the process of phasing UM
Wireless Network out.
As a result, incoming students
with new deviceswere not be able
to access UM Wireless Network,
forcing more and more people to
start connecting to MWireless.
However, problems connect-
ing to the new network can arise
when a Kerberos password, such
as the kind used to access Uni-
versity sites like CTools, is not
synchronized with other types of
account passwords.
Though this issue can be over-
come by logging onto weblogin.
umich.edu andselecting"Change
Your UMICH Password," not all
complications are as simple to
troubleshoot.
Andy Palms, ITS executive
director of communications sys-
tems and datacenters, canupdate
a new device in about 60 seconds,
but said the average person will
spend about five minutes trying
to connect even if all goes well.
"There's a lot of benefit to it,
but the initial configuration is not
what people normallyexpect," he
said.

CSG, IFC
launch
late-night
bus route
Proppe pushes to
make 'Night Owl'
route permanent
By WILL GREENBERG
DailyNews Editor
The "Night Owl" bus route,
a new service provided by Cen-
tral Student Government and
the Interfraternity Council,
launched it's new late-night
route Thursday.
The new bus route will pro-
vide Blue Bus services later
than any current routes to help
students get home to the more
remote parts of campus on the
weekends.
Funding for the new route
was approved earlier this month,
costing the CSG and IFC a col-
lective $30,000. The two orga-
nizations will each contribute
$15,000, and the CSG Assembly
will contribute an additional
$10,000 for advertising and inci-
dental causes. The money will
fund the route until the end of
the Winter 2014 semester.
CSG President Michael
Proppe said the new route, pro-
vided there is sufficient ridership
this weekend, will run Thursday
through Saturday evenings.
The Night Owl route will use
two Blue Buses, making stops at
off-campus locations as well as
Oxford Residence Hall, East Uni-
