Overseas jobs are passport1
by, BrnnE~ Bouman

"Overseas opportunities -
now," said Bill Nolting, Inter-
national Opportunities coordinator
t the International Center.
As the semester ends, Nolting
and his staff are informing as many
students as they can about opportu-
nities for going overseas.
"Students need to act now, or in
the next few weeks," advised
Nolting suggested scholarships
for students who want to study
abroad after graduation. "But now
the time to start applying," he
l red, because deadlines are early.
It's not too late to work abroad
this summer. Last year 130
University students worked in vari-
ous countries using permits from
the Council on International
Educational Exchange.
Just weeks ago, work permits in

Spain became available. "Exciting
news," Nolting said. "Until now
it's been totally impossible to work
legally there."
"The earlier you apply the bet-
ter," said Jeannine Lorenger,
International Opportunities advi-
sor. "We get so many requests for
Nolting advised people inter-
ested in working abroad to do so
while they still have student status.
"Given the grim job market that we
keep hearing about, if you're going
to wait tables, you might as well do
it in England," he laughed.
Staff also recommended work-
camps, two to four week commu-
nity projects which provide room
and board.
"That's a really nice way to meet
local people," Lorenger said. "Not
that many Americans participate,

it's mostly Europe

Jlealthy celebration planned for

by Jesse Snyder
Daily Staff Reporter
Nursing leaders from hospitals,
health care organizations, and nurs-
ing schools across the country will
soon descend on the Ann Arbor
No one is in need of medical at-
tention, however. The health care
*rofessionals will be here to attend
The centennial anniversary of the
University School of Nursing May
The anniversary, titled "A
Second Century of Leadership,"
will be attended by the visitors, as
well as University nursing faculty,
students, and alumni. It will consist
of a series of seminars and lectures
concerning the current and future
State of the nursing profession.
"The U of M School of Nursing
has been a leader in the field for 100
years, and our centennial reflects
our continuing vision of nursing,"
Nursing Dean Rhetaugh Dumas said
iii a press release.

events where alcohol is served, suf-
ficient amounts of high-protein,
non-salty food should be supplied.
The task force also explicitly
states that overall, it does not favor
the practice of alcohol and other
drug testing. Yet such testing
would be permissible-if it were part
of a "larger, comprehensive, strate-
,ic approach and not a crisis-driven

study is the law library when I can
get in - which I didn't today," he
The law library is reserved for
students enrolled in the Univer-
ity's law school, and there is often
a monitor who guards the entrance.
"Today I didn't even bother,"
Ganz said. "I don't have an I.D."
First-year LSA student Amy
Tessner said she avoids the stacks in
the Grad. "I don't like to go there
because sometimes I get lost."
The Undergraduate Library also
offers voluminous study space, but
many students say its more difficult
,o study there.
"I tried the UGLi but it's just no
use. There's too much noise and too
many people walking around," said
LSA senior John DiCarlo.
"The Grad is quiet and it's the
atmosphere. Everything I need is at
my fingertips," he said.
LSA sophomore Melissa Tamas
called the UGLi "a good place to go
for fun. A group of my friends and I
tome here for light studying. I re-
ally wouldn't come here for serious
studying. It's too loud."
Ganz, a Bursley resident, says he
often studies at home at night and
on Saturdays.
"There I can spread out and grab
a bite to eat when I want. It's just a
relaxing atmosphere being in you
own room," he said.
4 Sigma Nu member Gonzo
Marquez says many members of his
fraternity opt to study at the
Meijer's cafeteria.
"The first reason I decided to go
there is because the libraries on
campus aren't open that late, and

they're too crowded around exam
time," Marquez said. "Meijer's is
open 24 hours, and it's a place to
study for mid-terms and finals."
& Marquez also pointed out that

The celebration will include a
reception for graduating students
and visiting alumni on May 1. All
events will take place in the
Michigan League.
Claire Fagin, University of
Pennsylvania nursing dean, will de-
liver the keynote address on "An
Action Agenda" May 2.
The day will also include a panel
discussion of "Nursing in the 21st
Century" featuring the presidents
of all the major nursing associa-
tions, including the presidents of
the American Academy of Nursing,
the National Black Nurses
Association, and the National
Hispanic Nurses Association.
Dumas will moderate the panel.
Events on May 3 will include a
speech called "Balancing Career and
Personal Development" by Indiana
University Nursing Dean Angela
McBride, as well as numerous lec-
tures throughout the day.
"The event will address the fu-
ture of nursing, and nursing's role in

practice, research, and education,"
said Betty Groves, of the
University's Nursing Development
Dumas said the centennial will
provide a platform for the exchange
of ideas which could improve the
future state of nursing.

The School of Nursing was orig-
inally established in 1891 as a train-
ing school for nurses under the aegis
of the medical school. The class of
1893 graduated 14 students.
Declared a separate academic unit
in 1941, the school now boasts over
8,000 alumni around the world.
