In local TV

University Regent Denise
Ilitch (D) told a local CBS tele-
vision program Sunday that the
regents plan to discuss the Ath-
letic Department at Thursday's
monthly meeting.
Ilitch appeared on Michigan
Matters Sunday morning and
said she has received extensive
feedback regarding sophomore
quarterback Shane Morris' con-
cussion sustained against Min-
nesota Sept. 27, how his injury
was handled by the football team
and the status of the Athletic
Department as a whole.
"The system failed that day
and there are a lot of issues we

need to review now," Ilitch told
Michigan Matters.
She said the regents will be
discussing athletics Thursday
and she expects many concerned
citizens to speak out during the
meeting's public commentary
portion. The official agenda,
released Monday, does not cur-
rently include any discussion
of athletics. However, it is not
uncommon for supplemental
agendas to be presented during
meetings at the last minute. The
meetings of the Board of Regents
are regularly scheduled, public
gatherings that occur monthly
and the dates are typically set
more than one year in advance.
The regents meet once per year
at the University of Michigan's
Flint campus, usuallyin October.
University spokesman Rick
Fitzgerald said he does not
expect any formal discussion of
athletics to occur at Thursday's
meeting and said he has no indi-
cation there would be any kind of
supplemental agenda. However,

Presidential stop
follows First Lady's
last week
By RACHEL PREMACK
Daily News Editor
President Barack Obama is
scheduled to visit Michigan in
the last full week of the cam-

paign season later this month.
Following his wife, First Lady
Michelle Obama, and Hillary
Clinton, former secretary of
state, Obama will promote Dem-
ocratic hopefuls.
Obama will also campaign for
gubernatorial candidates that
week in Wisconsin, Pennsylva-
nia and Maine, a White House
official told the Associated Press
Wednesday morning.

Polls show that incumbent
Gov. Rick Snyder (R) is lead-
ing his Democratic challenger
Mark Schauer by an average of
3.5 points. Democrats have an
edge in the U.S. Senate race,
where U.S. Rep. Gary Peters (D-
Detroit) leads Michigan Secre-
tary of State Terri Lynn Land by
nine points.
Peters is the only senato-
rial candidate Obama will cam-

paign for, and Peters is also
the only Senate nominee that
has requested an appearance
with the president. Meanwhile,
Michelle Obama, former Pres.
Bill Clinton and other Demo-
cratic figures have campaigned
for a range of candidates across
the nation for November's mid-
term election.
Candidates are likely distanc-

RESEARCH
UHS survey
looks at student
health, wellness

Stress, anxiety
identified as major
academicimpediments
By IAN DILLINGHAM
Daily News Editor
Wednesday morning, Univer-
sity Health Service released a
summary of results of its Nation-
al College Health Assessment - a
survey 7,000 undergraduate and
5,000 graduate and professional
students designed to shed light
on the current state of student
health and provide the Universi-
ty with a resource for addressing
campus needs.
The University has previously
conducted the survey, based
on recommendations from the
American College Health Asso-
ciation, in 2006 and 2010. The
2014 survey was conducted in
February.
The survey sought to gather
data on a wide array of topics,
including students' impediments
to academic performance, vio-
lence on campus, substance use

and abuse, sexual health, nutri-
tion and students' medical his-
tory. The results of each survey
item were compared against
2006 and 2010 responses, as well
as Healthy Campus 2020 goals -
a 10-year national campus health
objectives set forth by the ACHA
designed in parallel with the
U.S. Department of Health and
Human Service's Healthy People
2020 initiative.
The University has already
met the Healthy Campus 2020
goals in several key areas, but
acknowledged other areas where
they have not yet achieved those
goals. UHS Health Educator
Carol Tucker said while the Uni-
versity takes note of the Healthy
Campus 2020 goals in the survey,
it has independent and some-
times more ambitious goals in
some specific areas, such as alco-
hol abuse.
For instance, only 10 percent
of undergraduate respondents
indicated they had smoked a
cigarette in the last month at
the time of the survey - down
from 16 percent in 2006 and 12

Panel looks at
changing scene at
the Big House
By TOM MCBRIEN
Daily StaffReporter
"Hail to the Victors" is more
than just a fight song - it's often
how people are first introduced

to the University. But how often
it is played, at what tempo and
how it is arranged with other
songs are all decisions made by
a variety of people. The coor-
dination of music at University
sporting events is a complicated
affair.
At a mixed lecture and open-
table discussion hosted by the
School of Music, Theatre, and
Dance at the Hatcher Graduate

Library Wednesday night, more
than 100 University students
and Ann Arbor residents inter-
acted with a panel well-versed
in college athletics and music.
Panelists included LSA
junior Madison Ristovski, a
Michigan women's basketball
player; John Pasquale, direc-
tor of the Michigan Marching
-and; John U. Bacon, published
