Students to compete
for overseas study as
Rhodes, Marshall,
Mitchell scholars
Daily Staff Reporter
Six University students have
been nominated to represent the
leaders and best overseas.
The University Provost's Coun-
cil on Student Honors has nomi-
nated six students for three of
academia's most prestigious schol-
arships - the Rhodes Scholarship
at Oxford University, the Marshall
Scholarship, which places students
in the United Kingdom and the
Mitchell Scholarship in Ireland.
The University's nominees are
LSA senior Ana Guay, LSA gradu-
ate Zeinab Khalil, LSA senior
Stephanie Leitzel, LSA graduate
David Moore, LSA senior James
Nadel, and Kevin Bain, a Business
senior with dual enrollment in
LSA. These students will compete
with thousands of others for one

of the few coveted spots offered by
these elite scholarship organiza-
University Provost Martha Pol-
lack will host a reception Monday
where the nominated students
will speak. Students interested in
applying for the scholarships inthe
future are also invited to attend.
Leitzel was the only University
student nominated for the Mitch-
ell Scholarship. Leitzel said pro-
spective students first apply to a
University committee that selects
the nominees.
"You prepare for it for quite
a while," she said. "You apply to
Michigan first and there's a com-
mittee at Michigan that selects
people for the Rhodes, Marshall,
and Mitchell."
Leitzel decided to apply to the
Mitchell Scholarship because of
her fascination with Irish culture
and history. The Mitchell Schol-
arship awards as many as 12 win-
ners per funded year of study at
any university in Ireland. Leitzel
said the scholarship would be a
"perfect fit" for her, as she hopes
to become a historian with a spe-

historic, Ann Arbor-favorite "It went well; people seemed

to like it," Magner said.
Following 60 years at its
South Division Street location,
Blimpy Burger was displaced
in 2013 after the University
purchased the property for $1.5
million to build the Munger
Graduate Residence Hall.
The graduate residence hall
was funded in large part by a
$110 million donation from Uni-
versity alum Charles Munger, a
real estate mogul. At the time,
the donation was the largest
in University history, though it

was topped a few months later
by a $200 million donation
from fellow real estate magnate
Stephen Ross. The residence
hall, projected to cost $188 mil-
lion and house 600 graduate
students, is expected to open in
fall 2015.
Magner said moving Blimpy

longer than he had originally
hoped. After looking into a new
