The proposed changes to the U-M greek system (that I first posted about on January 4), including permanently moving rush to winter term, made it into the Detroit News today, in a story distributed by the Associated Press. (See my link to the Daily’s story about this) Here are the proposed changes, as reported by the Detroit News: “Moving recruitment activities and pledging from the fall to the winter semester, Revising the hazing policy and adopting practices to prevent hazing, Partnering with state legislators to establish anti-hazing legislation, Requiring a live-in supervisor in fraternity houses. Sororities already have them.”

Also, the U-M library has unveiled a program, where the full text of 20,000 of their books are avaliable for searching online, called the “Digital General Collection“.
