'U' plans to increase
enforcement for
weekend festivities
Daily Staff Reporter
With Halloween and Home-
coming this weekend, Univer-
sity officials are encouraging
students to keep safety in mind
while celebrating during these
In an interview with The
Michigan Daily, University Police
Chief Robert Neumann said the
University plans to work with the
Ann Arbor Police Department to
increase enforcement over the
weekend. He also stressed the
role of the larger community in
ensuring public safety.
"It's really a collaborative
effort with everyone being obser-
vant to those that need help and
taking action when you see some-
thing that needs to be done,"
Neumann said.
He said students often have
the tendency to ignore dangerous
situations, and encouraged stu-
dents to avoid taking drinks from

a common container and to never
leave a drink unattended.
Wolverine Wellness . Direc-
tor Mary Jo Desprez said these
celebrations have the potential
to compromise student safety.
However, she added that it is pos-
sible for students to stay safe and
have fun.
"Nobody wants to ruin any-
body's fun; our goal is that every-
one has a blast and that there's
also this culture of caring for
each other, and not just car-
ing that you take care of some-
body, but not letting them get
to the point where they're sick,"
Desprez said.
Desprez outlined similar pro-
tocols to Neumann's. She empha-
sized having a plan: eat before
drinking, space out drinks and
limit the amount of liquor con-
sumed. Desprez noted that the
student-designed Stay in the Blue
app can help students track their
drinking, which was launched in
2013 in partnership with the Uni-
versity Health System's alcohol
safety program. The app, which
has been downloaded more than
6,000 times, calculates blood
alcohol content based upon

Universiy Housing,
Unions report

Daily StaffReporter
In his inaugural address last
month, University President
Mark Schlissel was clear about

the role socio-economic status
should play in a student's ability
to attend the University.
"Students and their parents
must hear clearly and rest secure
that the University of Michigan
values curiosity and intellect,
not ZIP codes or family income,"
he said.
However, the socio-economic
status of the University's under-
graduate population is not even-
ly distributed. In Fall 2011, 63
percent of incoming freshmen

reported family incomes over
$100,000, according to the office
of the Registrar. A 2012 survey
by the U.S. Census Bureau stated
the median family income in the
United States is $51,324.
In addition to the challenges
in ensuring access to higher edu-
cation for students from lower
socio-economic backgrounds,
E. Royster Harper, vice presi-
dent for student life, said in a
September interview with The
Michigan Daily the University's

Daily StaffReporter
Regent Kathy White (D), the
2014 chair of the University's
Board of Regents, is running for

her third consecutive term on
the board with the goal of con-
tinuing what she has started.
White is currently a Profes-
sor of Law at Wayne State Uni-
versity Law School in Detroit
and an Instructor of Law at the
United States Military Academy
at West Point in New York during
the summer. She also serves as a
Lieutenant Colonel in the United
States Army Reserve.

"I'm always in higher educa-
tion and that is my real passion,"
White said. "I'm either a student,
or teaching, or governing. I think
bettering the education of young
adults and continuing education
for adults is very rewarding and
it changes peoples' lives."

eton University in 1988 with a
