Scholarships And
Prizes Are Given
Qualified women students in the
University are eligible to apply for a
number of scholarships and prizes
awarded annually for assistance or
Scholarships are awarded by the
various dormitories on the basis of
good citizenship, scholarship and
need. Occasionally these are given
to a new studdnt whose credentials

ord at the University.
Residents of'Michigan who are en-
tering the University as freshmen are
eligible to apply for the Michigan
Alumni Undergraduate Scholarships,
valued at the total of the semester
fees. These scholarships are re-
newed with the satisfactory comple-
tion of study in the University. Ap-

which undergraduates and graduates
by virtue of their membership havel
created and preserve for the partici-
pation and enjoyment of the campus.i
Membership in the League is au-1
tomatic on enrollment in the Uni-,
versity, and upon graduation each
woman becomes a life member of the
Center of women's government and
activities are the Undergraduate
Offices on the first floor, in which1
are a waiting room, Council room
and president's and secretary's of-
Alumnae Headquartersi
With headquarters in the League,
the Alumnae Association maintains
connections with more than 21,000'
women graduates throughout the na-
tion. Among its notable achieve-'
ments are the construction of the
League Building, which is now free
of debt; the gift of Alumnae House,
semi-cooperative dormitory; the do-'
nation of $22,d00 in scholarships and
fellowships and the present cam-
paign for another cooperative dor-
mitory and a gift for the erection of
the proposed women's swimming pool.
Among the facilities on the first
floor of the League is a spacious
cafeteria, which is open to the pub-
lic, and which contains a soda bar.
Meals are also served in the large
dining room on the second floor, and
in the Russian tea room and private
rooms upon request.
Also open to all women is the beau-
ty shop on the first floor.
Informal Garden
One of the unique features found
on the first floor is the informal gar-
den of the League. Surrounded by
its high stone wall, this spot is well-
known for its trim shrubbery and
flowers as the warm-weather meet-
ing place of women and their friends,
and the scene, in the spring and fall,
of teas and receptions, besides be-
ing a favorite place for garden wed-
dings of students and alumnae.
In connection with this, mention
might be made of the chapel. Given
in memory of Charlotte Blagden,
who died in 1925 during her term
as president of the League, this room
is used by many for weddings, and
honor societies choose to hold their
initiation ceremonies here.
At one end of the second floor of
the building is the ballroom, which
is the scene of a great many social
events during the year. Panhellenic
and Assembly Balls, afternoon tea
dances, class projects such as Soph
Cabaret and Frosh Project and spe-
cial school dances such as the law-
yers' Crease Ball and Odonto Ball
of the dentists, take place in the ball-
Dancing Classes Held
In the ballroom also are held the
dancing classes, which are attended
each week by upwards of 200. For
this feature women act as teachers
and dance partners.
At the opposite end of the second
floor and seating 700, the Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre is the scene of
the Cinema Arts program featuring
outstanding foreign and domestic
movies, as well as of class projects
and the repertoire of Play Produc-
The second floor holds besides this
the beautifully decorated and spaci-
ous wood-panelled Ethel Fountain
Hussey Room, the Grand Rapids
Room and the Kalamazoo Room,,
besides a game room equipped for
ping pong.
Panhellenic and Assembly inter-
views take place in these rooms. Lun-
cheons and dinners are held here.
When space is not available else-
where, work on decorations and pos-
ters is centered in these rooms. An-
other activity which meets here is the
Tuesday duplicate bridge session.

the third floor serves the same pur-

7-11 Club Is Open
Another of the advantages offered
students is the 7-11 Club, which is
