cal Engineers (AIChE) Student specifically interest you?


Conference in Atlanta to present
research she did over the summer.
The AIChE promotes networking
in the field of chemical engineer-
ing industry and academia, and
holds annual student conferences
that are attended by chemical
engineers from all over the U.S.
What drew you to chemical
I really liked how applicable
it was to a bunch of different
fields. That's what initially drew
me to it when I was a freshman.

It's a poster on the research I
did over the summer. I was at
Penn State over the summer for
an REU (Research Experience
for Undergraduates) program.
So I worked with virus filtration
membranes, and we're trying to
optimize the retention of virus-
es by bearing different condi-
tions ... These membranes are
used for pharmaceutical compa-
nies to make sure that the final
protein-drug product doesn't
have virus in it, because that can
get people really sick.

I guess what's nice about sum-
mer programs is you actually
get to spend full time working
on it, whereas I did research
here duringthe school year and,
with academics and with other
extra-curriculars, you only get
to put 10 or 15 hours, if that, per
So I guess that's what's nice
about this program is I was able
to actually feel like I got a lot

"I think a real patriotAis
someone who debates the ide-
als of the nation and debates
our policies and practices and
is not afraid to criticize the gov-
ernment - but they do so in a
way that is constructive and a
way to improve things," Baker
said. "Especially in this univer-
sity, what I would like to see is
a very vigorous debate about
what is patriotism - what does
it mean to a person individually
and what does it mean to us as
a group."
American Culture Prof.
Kristin Hass continued the
presentation with a history of
cultural practices and displays
of patriotism. Discussing major
events, such as the start and
completion of the Washington
Monument and the terrorist
attacks of 9/11, Hass described
the evolution of America as a
country and the varying ways
historical figures attempted
acts of patriotism.
Concluding the panel's pre-
sentation, Associate Musicology
Prof. MarkClague discussed the
origin of the National Anthem
and its evolution through histo-
ry. Not only did Clague discuss
the process of standardizing
the Star Spangled Banner, he
also explored the lyrical signifi-
cance of the song.
"The thing that you don't
realize when you're singing the
Star Spangled Banner, whether
it's at the Big House or a gradua-
tion ceremony - that first verse
ends with a question mark,"
Clague said. "So many people
on this campus are trying to
create your future and identify
who you want to become. Part
of that identity is as a citizen.
That question mark is really the
key, that we have a responsibil-
ity and make citizenship and
patriotism not a thing but an
activity. Not a noun, but a verb
that we're going to use to do

public. The organization's mission
statement is to preserve print doc-
uments to serve the public good.
There are 12.9 million volumes
available on HathiTrust and most
of its affiliated universities are in
North America. The organization
puts an emphasis on cooperation
and aggregation, encouraging
institutions to share their resourc-
es rather than keep them private.
Visiting Humanities Professor
Bruce Janz, from the University of
Central Florida, said HathiTrust
provides uniquely extensive aca-
demic resources.
"People are interested in doing
things like archiving public gov-
ernment material," Janz said.
"Also, some people are interested
in using technology in various
teaching situations, such as cur-
riculum and distance learning."
officer from the University Library,
discussed the legal side of copyright
within digitalization. Levine spoke
about the copyright process each
document goes through before join-
ingthe HathiTrust.
The volume of digital literature

has increased substantially from
when the program began in 2008.
There were 2,477,871 digital copies
available on HathiTrust in 2008.
Today, there are 12,914,289 vol-
umes ofbooks within the database.
"Our mission is to provide reli-
able, long-term access to managed
digital resources to its designated
community, for now and into the
future," Levine said.
Now a Public Policy profes-
sor, Courant is a key figure in
HathiTrust's founding, having
signed the original agreementthat
allowed Google to digitize the Uni-
versity's library. He was curious to
see how people, domestically and
internationally, are responding to
-the program.
"It's gone from not existing to
being a central institution for aca-
demic libraries," he said. "It's great
to see libraries cooperating more
and more deeply and to see scholars
cooperatingacross spaces and shar-
ing resources. I expect and hope to
William Gblerkbor, a visiting
student originally from Ghana
who is currently studying anthro-
pology at the University of Tex-
as-Austin, found the discussion
useful for his ownfuture work.
"There are elements of the pro-

gram that I find interesting," he
said. "It allows us to generate new
sets of data, particularly using dig-
ital photography. I would like to
increase the resources available to
people back home in Africa, partic-
ularly Ghana and maybe venture
into West Africa as well."
Keith Breckenridge, a professor
at the University of the Witwa-
tersrand, located in Johannesburg,
South Africa, was more conflicted
about HathiTrust and the prospect
of digitizing historical documents.
"I'm much more ambivalent
about the benefits that there actu-
ally are from formal research.
There are lots of people here that
see lots of opportunity in innova-
tion in the use of these tools," he
said. "I think there's a lot of diffi-
culty in makingthem work."
Despite his doubts, Brecken-
ridge acknowledged the value in
being able to preserve digital vol-
umes of history.
"The digital humanities would
definitely help social science
research. There is more deliberate
effort to make government con-
trolled publications more avail-
able. It's very badly done in South
Africa. We just need to make it
much more systematic."

have a very select group of under-
graduates here, and they're used
to success," Hembroff said. "They
come here and they are (chal-
lenged) and they are not succeed-
ing the same way they were in
high school and that is a problem
for them. These academic difficul-
ties are then reflected back in the
percentages of students reporting
feeling high stress and anxiety."
Hembroff also discussed about
campus safety. Accordingto survey
responses, students generally feel
safer on campus and in the com-
munity now than they did in 2010.
The number of reported instances
of abuse and violence has also
decreased between 2010 and 2014.
Overall, alcohol use remained
close to unchanged between 2010
and 2014, but varies between
undergraduate and graduate stu-
dents. There is a higher percent-
age of graduate students who have
reported using alcohol, but 79 per-

cent of graduate students "stayed
in the blue" when they drank. The
term is refers to a measurement of
blood alcohol content where stu-
dents are "in the Blue," when their
BAC is.06 or lower - whereas only
49 percent of undergraduate stu-
Of the students that reported
drinking, undergraduates report-
ed a higher percentage of students
facing undesirable consequences
of drinking as opposed to gradu-
ate students. Students in fraterni-
ties and sororities also had higher
rates of undesirable consequences
of drinking, including injury, loss
of memory, unprotected or non-
consensual sex and trouble with
law enforcement.
Hembroff discussed which
Healthy Campus 2020 goals the
University has met for undergrad-
uates and which ones still need
work. The University has met the
goal for making sure students are
receiving information concerning
alcohol and other drugs, STI pre-
vention, pregnancy prevention,
violence and suicide prevention.

The University has also met the
goal in terms of reducing academic
impairments from sickness, work
and eating disorders, as well as
the goals in terms of prevalence
of abusive relationships, physical
abuse, cigarette use, contraception
use, exercise and campus safety.
The Healthy Campus 2020 goals
that the University still needs to
meet include reducing the preva-
lence of stress and anxiety and of
sexual abuse, marijuana use and
binge drinking.
Wolverine Wellness Director
Mary Jo Desprez said UHS should
help "students grow in their capac-
ity to integrate health and wellness as
part of their success, build resilience
to manage fluctuations of life, make
Desprez added that this survey
is another tool that will allow them
to discernwhattheysare doingwell,
and what still needs to be done
to help them achieve their goal of
"creating a University of Michigan
community that advances health
and wellness for students."
