A group of University students
say they were among the first to
arrive outside the White House
gates after President Barack Obama
announced Osama bin Laden's
death late Sunday night.
About 60 University students
from the Ross School of Business are
studying in Washington D.C. this
week as part of the University's Car-
son Scholars program which grants
participants course credits. Many
of the students were in their hotel
rooms when they heard the leader
of the Sept.11 attacks was dead.
Even before Obama made the
official announcement, Business
seniors Ifat Ribon, Karen Zelby and
Mariya Pojidaev rushed out of their
hotel room shortly after turning on
the news.
"We went literally sprinting
down toward the White House,"
Zelby said.
Pojidaev said when they got
there around 11:30 p.m., a small
group of University of Michigan
students were gathered at the gates

public sectors and urged students

to be "explorers" in their quest for
self-discovery.
In a speech that shied away
from the political issues that have
sparked controversy among many
Michigan citizens since he was
elected last November, Snyder
emphasized the importance of the
University's resources in provid-
ing vast opportunities for students
to become leaders and inspire pos-
itive change.
"Michigan is a special place
to me and when you think about
making a commencement address,
you have two choices," Snyder
said. "You can talk about major
issues, or you can talk about your
life and personal issues. Today I'm
going to talk about my personal
