Union unveils plaque honoring Coleman

University president
recognized for years
of service, student
life initiatives
Daily News Editor
Tuesday, outgoing Univer-
sity President Mary Sue Coleman
stood in the Michigan Union and
watched as two students cut a rib-
bon to unveil her plaque on the
wall next to a long list of former
University presidents.
"Coleman, a biochemist,
always focused on the University
of tomorrow," the plaque reads.
"Popular with students, she led
during the worst economic down-
fall since the Depression, with new
faculty hires, greater interdisci-
plinary teaching and research, a
vibrant entrepreneurial culture,
major building and residential
life projects and the $3.2 billion
Michigan Difference Campaign. A
strong advocate of diversity in the
classroom, she launched academic
partnership on three continents."
The tradition of honoring Uni-
versity presidents on the Union
wall began in 1994, on the 90th
anniversary celebration of the

Michigan Union.
Susan Pile, director of the.
Michigan Union, said she, the
Michigan Union Board of Repre-
sentatives and Coleman's office
had been organizingthe ceremony
for many months. She lauded the
outgoing president's achievements
and tradition of excellence of the
University she has continued.
"putting all of her accomplish-
ments into such few words was
a real art," Pile said. "We're just
honored to be able to honor her."
LSA senior Kendall Johnson,
a member of the Michigan Union
Board of Representatives, spoke
at the ceremony about the Union's
rich history in supporting student
involvement and campus harmony.
Johnson also drew on the sig-
nificance of Coleman's status as
the first female president of the
University, leading the way for
future diversity in the school lead-
"There is also significance
in adding a woman to the wall,
especially a woman of integrity,
responsibility, wisdom and deter-
mination," Johnson said. "The
legacy she leads will continue to
inspire us for many years to come."
University alum Adam Kleven,
a former MUBR chair, also spoke
about the outgoing president's
commitment to students and stu-

dent life at the ceremony.
Kleven said though studies are
important at the University, expe-
riences outside the classroom are
the ones that trulybenefit students
in their lives after college.
"Places like the Michigan
Union, the Big House, the rec
sports buildings, the dorms, those
are the places that students will
remember," he said.
Kleven mentioned several ini-
tiatives Coleman undertook to
improve student life, including
an investment of $170 million in
renovations to campus facilities.
Over her tenure, Coleman pursued
a residential life initiative to reno-
vate and reconstruct residential
halls on campus, such as South
Quad, Alice Lloyd and Mosher-
He also touched on her fireside
chats, held in the Union, during
which would answer student ques-
tions and try to keep her admin-
istration's actions transparent.
Kleven said these chats demon-
strated the president's willingness
to connect with students and hear
their concerns.
"While President Coleman is
also leaving some big shoes to fill,
I also think that she has laid the
groundwork for a future where
Michigan will remain a top-tier
university and a university dedi-

cated to its students," he said.
After the unveiling of the
plaque, Coleman also men-
tioned her efforts to improve
and develop student life through
the facilities they used, whether
classrooms, residence halls or the
Union itself.
"I am so happy that under the
leadership of Royster Harper,
(vice president of student life),
that we were able to come to an
accommodation so that this icon-
ic building will be preserved for
the future," said Coleman. "When
I talked to alumni, whether they
were from the last few years,
twenty, thirty, forty, fifty years
ago, they remember this as being
a part of the campus."
The Michigan Union began as
an all-male organization to foster
a sense of unity among students.
The Union building that resides
on State Street was once the loca-
tion of the house of former Judge
Thomas M. Cooley. His house was
demolished in 1916 and the Union
opened in 1919.
The original Union housed a
bowling alley, barbershop and
swimming pool. Today, the build-
ing is used as office space for
various student organizations,
numerous fast food restaurants
and cafes, study rooms and con-
ference areas.

roads, he said.
"We also beefed up the com-
6 4 5 3 munication plan so that people
know that this should not affect
6 7 post-game traffic, because prior
to the meeting, we found out
that many people were under the
7 8 assumption that it was going to
impact post game traffic, which
it should not," Seto said. "One of
the biggest issues is that people
4 2 9 6 go out the way they came in, not
realizing that Main Street is open
and would be a more expedient
15 4 way to leave the city."
Seto said further conversa-
4 8tion would be had about what
changes needed to be made to the
current traffic control plans in
5 preparation for the August 2 soc-
cer game between Manchester
8 1 6 2 United and Real Madrid, which
may pose different issues than a
football game.
"I've been told that as far as
the soccer game, there is more

of a likelihood that the game will
be closer in score, so people will
stay until the end of the game,
unlike a football game where the
score could be more lopsided," he
Neighborhood disturbance
was also cited as a problem dur-
ing the meeting, specifically
when game attendants use them
as shortcuts to avoid traffic.
Another nuisance mentioned was
the potential danger and annoy-
ance of overhead helicopters in
residential areas.
Seto said he could not imple-
ment significant changes to State
Street or nearby side streets
because of the limited number of
"It's a balance between secu-
rity and inconvenience," he said.
Along with several city resi-
dents, Councilmembers Jack
Eaton (D-Ward 4) and Jane
Lumm (I-Ward 2) were in atten-
dance at the meeting. The street
closure resolution will be pre-
sented to them and the rest of
city council July 7 for approval.

Nik Stauskas: 8th overall
(Sacramento Kings)
NEW YORK - Nik Stauskas may
have joked before that he wanted
to play with LeBron James. But
the Sacramento Kings had bigger
things in mind for him, makinghim
Michigan's highest draft pick in 14
With the eighth pick in the 2014
NBA Draft, the Kings selected the
former Michigan guard, making
him the highest Michigan player
selected since Jamal Crawford was
selected eighth overall in the 2000
"I can't really put this into
words," Stauskas said in his first
official press conference. "I'm just
excited to be a Sacramento King.
I've only heard good things about
the city and the organization, so
I'm excited to getto work."
The selection marks the second
straight year a former Wolverine
has been picked in the top 10. In
2013, the Minnesota Timberwolves
selected Trey Burke with the ninth
pick before trading him to the Utah
Jazz later that night.
For a team that selected a shoot-
ing guard in last year's draft in for-
mer Kansas player Ben McLemore,
it will be interesting to see if Staus-
kas will come off the bench or be a
starter. Regardless, Stauskas will
provide some relief to a team that
finished tied for 27th in 3-point
shooting last season (33 percent).
After sitting at his draft night
table with his agent, parents,
brother and Michigan coach John
Beilein, Stauskas unleashed ahand-
shake with his father to express his
gratitude for his night of nerves
finally being over. Though Stauskas
was nervous his father might get it
wrong, he ultimately got it right.
"It was planned last night,"
Stauskas said. "I always throw up
the three-goggles, so I thought it
was more appropriate to do it here."
Mitch McGary: 21st overall
(Oklahoma City Thunder)
With the 21st pick in the 2014
NBA Draft, the Oklahoma City
Thunder selected the former Wol-
verines forward.

Rumors floated around heading
into Thursday night that McGary
had a first-round promise from a
team. More rumors indicated that
team was the Charlotte Hornets
with the 24th pick. As it turned
out, McGary did have a first-round
suitor, and Michigan coach John
Beilein knew before anyone else.
Not known for tweeting, Beilein
beat all the media to the scoop,
tweeting out minutes before
the selection, "Another Wolver-
ine about to go up on the board.
#GoBlue #WeWork"
And wouldn't you know it,
Beilein was correct. Acting as an
oracle, Beilein predicted what
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver
announced from the stage.
Meanwhile, McGary will bring
a physical presence to an already
strong Thunder team. Anchored
by Kevin Durant and Russell West-
brook, Oklahoma City fell two wins
short of the NBA Finals.
Though it remains to be seen
how long it will take McGary to
get back to 100 percent, as he is
still recovering from lower back 41
surgery in January, the Thunder
clearly think McGary's aggressive,
fast-paced offense will fit in.
Glenn Robinson III: 40th overall
(Minnesota Timberwolves)
NEW YORK - As the end of the
2014 NBA Draft first round came to
a close, it started to become more
and more unclear where Glenn
Robinson III would land.
Then, all of a sudden, his named
was announced, andthe Minnesota
Timberwolves acquired his rights
with the 40th pick.
Robinson's name first came up
as a possible 29th pick of the Okla-
homa City Thunder, who had pre-
viously selected former Michigan
forward Mitch McGary with the
21st pick. Instead, the Thunder
selected former Stanford forward
Josh Huestis.
With the San Antonio Spurs
up next, a team projected in some
mock drafts to take Robinson,
speculation remained as to wheth-
er Michigan would have three first
round picks.
Of course, not only did Robinson
fall out of the first round, he fell nine
more picks until Minnesota finally
swooped in to pick up Robinson.
