Degrees not awas necessary
By Amit Pandya
Daily Staff Reporter
College is not for everyone.
A Unisersity study was completed on
June 5 revealing the prevalence of well-
paying jobs available to young people
without a four-year bachelor's degree.
The report, a joint study between the
University Institute of Labor and
Industrial Relations and Michigan Future,
Inc., revealed that a large variety of well-
paying options are available to younger
Michigan Future, Inc., a statewide non-
profit organization based in Ann Arbor,
has focused its work on drawning a new
and easily understandable picture of the
economic system for the general public. It
has publicized its work through various
speeches, workshops and seminars, said
Louis Glazer, executive director of
Michigan Future, Inc.
"We did the study in large part to
respond to the dichotomy between
employers that say they have lots of well-
paying jobs for workers with skills and
not necessarily a bachelor's degree aid
the public, who generally does not believe
this" said Glazer.
After researchers selected 88 fields
which have median annual full-time earn-
ings of at least S30,000, 47 fields were
found to not specifically call for a four-
Statistics from the study show that
occupations which do not require a bach-
elors degree can provide a salary as high
as S60,000 a year. Nillwrights and elec-
trical equipment repairers top this list of
occupations at median earnings of
S60,000 and S52,000, respectively.
The study also shows that these jobs,
while not requiring a bachelors degree,
will probably call for some additional
education and training. For many posi-
tions, a two-year occupational associate's

Senior Assistant Director of Career
Planning id Placement Judy Lawson
still highly values a bachelor's degree.
"Getting a four-year degree is still a
very important thing for beginning and
especially adsancing one's career,"
Lawson said. She acknowledged that
there are many job opportunities for
young people who have not completed a
four-year program, but also that those
who have atta.iined a bachelor's degree
will have more of an opportunity for
advancement in their career of choice.
LSA senior Catherine Hamilton said
she would still prefer receiving a bach-
elor's degree despite the results of the
"To get the job I want, I'm going to
have to get a bachelor's degree,"
Hamilton said. "Ill probably continue
and get a masters degree, too.

The relevance of each sculpture to
its immediate surroundings may not be
obvious to the observer, but when con-
sidered in a broader context, the rele-
vance of the-sculpture stands clear,
Tom Phardel, creator of 'Arc, a
sculpture that has found a temporary
home in the Matthaci Wetland, assem-
bled his piece with portions directly
relating to his environment.
"The welded steel (in my sculpture) is
a direct response to my environment,
industrial Detroit," Phardel said. "The
stone comes from Grindstone City -
once a boomtown when stone was king,
making industrial grinding wheels"
Phardel said he believes viewers will
see how his artwork naturally compli-
ments its immediate surroundings wthen
they consider the entire Great Lakes
Another piece, located at the trail
entrance, has a direct visual correla-
tion with nature.
Jim Melberg, the artist of "Forest
Murmurs, Two Figures' used cast alu-
minum to "reflect light, colors and
shades of the immediate environment."
"There is a shimmering effect similar
to reflected light on the rippling surface
of wateror light filtering through the for-
est canopy of leaves,' Melberg said.
"Arc'"Forest Murmurs" and most of
the other sculptures will not be perma-
nent fixtures at the Gardens. The sculp-
tures are part of a loan program, in which
contemporary artists from the Great
Lakes region will be able to submit their
work for eventual display at the Gardens.
The Jane Larue Sundial, a memo-
rial to a longtime staff member of the
Gardens, is the only permanent piece.
But the Gardens has an admirable
ulterior motive in the placement of the
"The sundial represents a time in
which people had greater link to nature,
when they could tell time by simply
looking at shadows made by the sun,"
Michener said. "Hopefully, regular visi-
tors to the Gardens will be able to, in a
way, recalibrate themselves to nature.
