CSG resolution calls for on-
site admissions in Detroit
'Green ies 'findcommunity,
multi-culturalism in chorus
diversity, some argue
By TANAZ AHMED
At the Central Student Govern-
ment meeting Tuesday night, sev-
eral resolutions were proposed,
including one that would support
on-site admissions to the Univer-
sity in Detroit high schools.
Additionally, a proposal to fund
the Sexual Assault Prevention
and Awareness Center's market-
ing materials and a resolution to
amend the CSG budget to allo-
cate funds to the Student Orga-
nization Funding Commission
were also discussed. A resolution
proposed Nov. 28 to help fund
the Golden Apple Award and the
corresponding lecture was unan-
imously passed as well.
The admissions resolution
calls for CSG to show its com-
mitment to a diverse campus by
supporting on-site admissions in
Detroit high schools. The student
assembly has previously stated
that it believes that this form
of recruitment is effective in a
resolution to increase minority
student enrollment, which was
passed during the Winter 2014
In the on-site admissions pro-
cess, admissions officers travel
to high schools to interview
students. Often in the same day
or shortly after, an admissions
officer reviews a student's appli-
cation and tells them if he or she
has been accepted.
"It sounds like a well thought
out plan," said Education senior
Michael Chrzan, a School of
Other CSG members had ques-
tions regarding why the Univer-
sity does not currently have an
on-site admissions process. Chr-
zan, an author of the resolution,
cited a 2002 Michigan Daily arti-
cle in which Sally Lindsey, the
associate director of admissions
at the time, said the University
does not hold on-site admissions
because it has a "very competi-
tive" admissions process.
Though the University of
Michigan-Dearborn has an on-
site admissions process, the Ann
Arbor campus does not. Other
universities such as Michigan
State University, the University
of Iowa and Western Michigan
University practice their own
variations of on-site admissions.
Some assembly members
wished the resolution better
defined the role CSG would take
in the practice's implementation.
"I just want to see some sort of
a formulation of a plan of how we
can actually get this policy insti-
tuted because I think it is really
important," said LSA Represen-
tative Bardia Vaseghi, an LSA
Andy Modell, an Engineering
senior, referenced the disrup-
tion of last week's meeting
of the University's Board of
Regents by members of the
group By Any Means Necessary
and asked for the proposal to
explicitly state that the resolu-
tion would be peacefully imple-
BAMN members also
expressed their support of
on-site admissions during the
"It was just the process (on-
site admissions) that made us
feel as that the university did
want students from my school
to come there," BAMN mem-
ber Leanna Mulholland said, in
regards to her own experience
with on-site admissions at her
Detroit high school.
The legislation was referred
to the resolutions committee
and will be voted upon at the
next CSG meeting.
The other resolutions at the
CSG meeting included a pro-
posal to support SAPAC, which
asked for $1,200 from CSG's leg-
islative discretionary account
58 Greene, founded
in 1993, is the second-
oldest student a
By STEPHANIE DILWORTH
Though the University has 16
a cappella groups, 58 Greene is
confident they are a little dif-
The group, founded in the
basement of East Quad Resi-
dence Hall in 1993, was named
after the room in the East Quad
where the founding members
began practicing together.
Since then, the co-ed, multicul-
tural group aims to use their
varying backgrounds to create
a unique voice.
always been what we are and
also something that we strive to
promote through music perfor-
mance," said 58 Greene Direc-
tor Jillian Gray, an LSA senior.
"That has been the main com-
ponent of our legacy for the past
21 - almost 22 - years now."
While Gray acknowledges
that other groups value diversi-
ty as well, she said they are the.
only a cappella group on cam-
pus that identifies multicultur-
alism as part of their brand.
Gray added that their musi-
cal performances often aim to
raise awareness of social jus-
tice issues. 58 Greene performs
annually at the MLK Children
and Youth Day program on
Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
But the group has quirkier
"Part of the ritual of starting
every rehearsal is slapping the
butt of the person next to you,"
Gray said. "We send it around,
and then we send it back around
every single rehearsal."
This tradition is meant to
loosen up everyone before
"It's funny and lightens the
mood and makes you comfort-
able with people really quick
even if you weren't before,"
The Greenies, as members
call themselves, have an com-
petitive yet informal fall audi-
tion process. The process has
the typical roundup of musical-
ity tests; among them are vocal
warmups, test ranges, sight
readings and a solo audition.
"Auditions are definitely
intimidating and a little scary,",-
Grey said there is also a
secret component of tryouts.
"The final part of the audi-
tion is something only we do
and it's a way in which we get
the personality out of people,"
Grey said. "We aren't just con-
cerned with whether or not
you can hold a tune but want
to know 'do we want to spend
10 hours a week with you in
rehearsal' and can you have fun
LSA sophomore Jin Kim,
58 Greene member, said the
58 Greene community is an
important aspect of her life at
"58 Greene is my family," she
said. "It is easy to get lost and
feel lonely at such a big school,
but Greenies have made me feel
a part of a caring community."
Kim added that 58 Greene is
diverse yet united in their pas-
sion for music.
"We are such different peo-
ple," Kim said. "People of dif-
ferentrace, background, gender
and preferences, but we come
together to create great music
and more importantly because
we care for each other."
LSA senior Schuyler Robin-
son, 58 Greene musical director,
expressed similar sentiments
about the a cappella group.
"58 Greene is incredible
because it not only supports
individual voices, both in and
outside the group, but also
harvests unity amongst this
incredible group of people,"
The 14 Greenies perform
twice a year in the fall semester
concert in December and again
for a spring concert in sum-
mer. Gray said they retire songs
every three semesters and pick
up four new songs so that each
concert showcases a different
set of songs.
The guys and girls have a
chance to compete within 58
Greene with their annual tradi-
tion of a guys-versus-girls sing-
off during the fall concert.
"We make a little competi-
tion out of it," Gray said. "We
rehearse separately and secret-
ly for the whole semester and
then we come together a week
before our concert and perform
for each other. And we always
try to outdo each other. We are
a co-ed group so it's fun for us
to sometimes split up."
In spite of the battle of the
sexes, the group is close-knit
- extending beyond their years
at the University. At a recent
reunion, more than 50 alumni
came to Ann Arbor from all
over the country.
"Alumni (are) a huge part
of our legacy," Gray said. "We
really pride ourselves on really
to use for SAPAC advertising
materials such as laptop stick-
ers, water bottles and magnets
that will be distributed at Win-
terfest and SAPAC events.
Requests for -funding also
came from the SOFC resolu-
tion. The legislation asked for
funds from the reserve, com-
mission discretionary and leg-
islative accounts to allocate up
to $27,281.04 to SOFC. Due to
an increased request for fund-
ing from student organiza-
tions, SOFC is predicted to be
short approximately $21,000 to
Both resolutions were
referred to the finance commit-
tee and will be voted on during
the next CSG meeting.
