"That approach fits right in with
the values that are important to our
community: sustainable practices, a
large, varied menu and easy-to-find
nutritional information," Pile said.
Unlike other eateries operating
out of the Union, Au Bon Pain will
be open throughthe Union'shours of
operation - till 2 a.m. during the fall
and winter semesters. Pile said, based
on recent memory, she could not
recall another eatery that remained
open through the Union's hours.
LSA senior Adam Kleven, chair
of the Michigan Union Board of
Representatives, noted that the new
cafes were "a positive change" from
the student perspective. Despite an
anonymous Facebook campaign and
efforts to discuss lease extensions,
University Unions requested that
Amer's vacate their Union location at
the expiration of their lease - after
19 years of service.
"Au Bon Pain wants to ensure
student needs are met in terms
of food selection and social
space," Kleven said. "Starbucks
is undeniably popular and will
increase the number of students who
come into the Union."
Architectural renovations will
accompany the incoming tenants as
they move into the spaces. Though
specific details regarding interior
changes are unavailable, Pain
said the Union would maintain
its historic elements - such as its
brick walls, arches and windows.
Renovations will commence at the
end of August.
Starbucks and Au Bon Pain have
both signed binding 10-year leases
with the University.

' to alter
replace UM Wireless
By AMRUTHA SIVAKUMAR
Starting in the fall, choosing
which wireless networkto connect
to will be simpler. Information
and Technology Services has
announced that they will be
disbanding the UM Wireless
Network - curbing the options
for networks to MWireless and
According to the ITS website,
MWireless provides University
affiliates with greater security
when connecting to the wireless
network, as compared to other
networks. MWireless encrypts
all data transmitted between the
wireless device and the Access
Point, whereas UM Wireless
encrypts only the uniqname and
password entered during login.
Andy Palms, ITS executive
director of communication systems
and data centers, said the high
encryption standards of MWireless
are important to students, as the
old network allowed hackers to
access all information transmitted
Although MWireless was
implemented in 2008 in
accordance with the latestsecurity
standards atthat time, ITS decided
to retain the dated UM Wireless
Network for nearly five years.
Palms said he understands
that University affiliates were
accustomed to authenticating to
the network via the UM Wireless
network splash page and that the
set up MWireless discouraged
users from transitioning to the

that it is just not what people are
used to," he said.
However, after initial

To promote MWireless,
ITS began an advertisement
campaign that included displaying
informative posters throughout

Wireless Network splash page and
the ITS webpage encouraged users
to switch over to the new network
as their default choice.
"I think it's been up in front
of people for quite a while,"
Palms said. "We're really trying
to encourage people to (use)
The reason for choosing to
disband the dated network now
was twofold, Palms said. Firstly,
he said ITS wanted to provide
users to with a "transition period"
to adjust to new technologies.
Although the exact number of
users remains unclear, Palms said
he believed that roughly 60 to 70
percent of University affiliates
used MWireless as their primary
Additionally, the transition
allowed ITS to prepare its
systems for the introduction of

users without a unigname and

with the number of networks that
