POST 9-11 SHIFT?
According to a university press release posted today, polling of the freshman class suggests they are more interested in raising families, and less interested in money.
Also in the news, President Coleman moved into 815 South University ... the University Record ran a photo of her new desk, and according to the Daily story, the U cut back the amount of work to save money. (Although I seem to remember the Regents approving the same amount cited in this article last August - the Daily's error, perhaps?
It looks like the University's lobbying on capital hill has paid off, according to this story, banner-towing planes will be banned from large stadium for one year. This week's Record is full of little tidbits: the Law school dean search committee has been named, and the Law Quad attacker was sentenced to 9.5 to 20 years. Finally, the University quietly switched their bus fleet to low-sulfer fuel, something the AATA has only done with a few busses (with daisies on the side to boot).
