UF admissions



raises the bar
VOLUME 99 k-:.'%, ISSUE 134


By JUSTIN RICHARDS
Alligator Staff Writer
jrichards@alligator.org

At Palm Harbor University
High School, students of the
International Baccalaureate pro-
gram once applied to UF with
smug assurance.
"It used to be that if you were
in IB, you pretty much got in,"
said senior Ryan Mills, who was
accepted to
UF UF. But this
Academics year, "at least
30 kids in IB
didn't get in, and they're all go-
ing to FSU."
Mike Burkett, Mills' IB guid-
ance counselor, said fewer than
30 were rejected, but he and his
colleagues throughout the state
were surprised at the number of
"strong candidates" who were
denied admission to UF.
Nancy Carter, Burkett's coun-
terpart at Deerfield Beach High
School, made the same observa-
tion: UF grows more selective of


its applicants each year.
In order to slim its bloated
undergraduate class for the 2006-
2007 academic period, the uni-
versity admitted fewer students
than it has since 1991.
For Burkett, a higher bar for
UF admissions would have been
easy to understand. But he thinks
the bar is uneven.
"We were hearing about
students who we were ques-
tioning, how on earth did UF let
them in?" he said.
Interim Admissions Director
Pat Herring said the UF admis-
sion process has morphed over
the last decade. In the late 1980s,
students were simply ranked by
grade point averages and SAT
scores. It was easy to compare
one to another.
Now, students' numbers
indicate who are candidates for
admission, but the ultimate deci-
sion requires human scrutiny.
Herring said the application

Peaceful protest
More than 2,000 people marched through downtown Ocala and gathered in the town square to
protest the immigration legislation hovering in Washington D.C. and call for rights and respect
for illegal immigrants. The rally was held in solidarity with other rallies in more than 100 cities
as a part of what some organizers were calling the National Day of Action for Immigrant Justice.
The march was peaceful and faced only a small group of vocal opposition. See story, pg. 4.

CLO alumni raise $100K for repairs to the building


By DAVIDCCOHEN
Alligator Writer
dcohen@alligator.org

Collegiate Living Organization alumni
created a foundation two months ago to
keep the 75-year-old, low-cost co-op alive.
So far, $100,000 has been pledged for
building upgrades and legal fees for the
organization's lawsuit against UF.
CLO Alumni Foundation Executive
Director Vince Assini said 300 of the 1,300
CLO alumni have been contacted.
"It's not nostalgia," Assini said. "We
want it for the future."
The foundation plans on keeping an eye
on the CLO by starting a building account
for repairs and removing irresponsible
residents who do not fulfill their obliga-
tions, Assini said.


UF officials have maintained since
January that they want students out of the
Northwest 15th Street location, noting that
UF inspectors say it needs about $750,000
in repairs.
However, CLO Alumni Foundation
Director of Operations Robert Peele said
the CLO is nearly finished repairing the
problems and areas UF deemed unsafe

But he said he believes progress has down on," he said.
In the early 1960s, UF maintenance


crews helped CLO residents with building
repairs, said Peele, who was the CLO vice
president at the time.
"We were just charged the hourly rate,"
he said. "Students painted outside of the
building. [That] enabled it to last another
10 years."
Peele said CLO alumni have donated
about $15,000 to UF, earmarked for their
former home.
"They haven't given the CLO a penny
of it," he said.
Assini said sometimes there might be
a weak group of residents who let their
responsibilities slip, and noted there is
some "weeding out" to be done with cur-
rent residents.
"I think the current group inherited the
problems that are there," he said.

Sports facility will have bathrooms, skate park


By SHARILYN WISKUP
Alligator Contributing Writer

Whether students are playing
a game of basketball or bathing in
the heat of the sun, nature calls at
unexpected times.
Students who face bladder di-
lemmas when using the Broward
Outdoor Recreation Complex will
no longer have to pop a squat at a
friend's dorm, hold it in or even
worse go in the pool.
Beginning July, the $720,000
Broward Outdoor Recreation
Complex additions, including re-
strooms, will be accessible to UF
students with Gator 1 Cards.


Michael Powell, superinten-
dent construction manager of BBI
Construction, said students will be
most excited about the new rest-
room facility.
"They don't have to run across
the road to go tinkle," he said.
Other new amenities include a
gatehouse for sporting equipment,
a check-in desk, a concrete surface
for skate park users and new land-
scaping. Powell said construction
began two months ago, and the
building crew is on schedule.
Funding for these improve-
ments came from the Florida
Legislature.
David Stopka, UF's associate


director of recreational sports fa-
cilities, said the tennis, basketball
and sand volleyball courts, along
with the roller hockey rink, skate
park and pool, attract UF students
looking for some different outdoor
entertainment.
On Future plans for
Campus the Broward Outdoor
Recreation Complex
include a fitness center, but it
would cost $72 million, which the
department of Recreational Sports
doesn't have, he said.
SFor now, he hopes students will
enjoy the assortment of activities
and sports equipment.
Even though Stopka can't con-


trol the influx of money, he can con-
trol the happiness of 20 members
on the UF Skateboarding Club.
Bryan Jackson, club president,
approached Stopka about recon-
structing the skate park.
Jackson said that after a year
and a half of continuous skate-
boarding on the asphalt, safety
was a risk, and he suggested that
concrete replace the existing ter-
rain.
"Dr. Stopka felt it was neces-
sary because we are a part of the
school, just like any other group of
people," Jackson said. "I have so
much respect for that."
The concrete was poured


Friday, and Jackson said it should
be dry in a week.
Once the old equipment is
moved inside the park, it will be
available to use.
However, the skating ramps
and pipes, which will be placed
in a new arrangement, will require
additional equipment and Student
Government funds.
Jackson has high hopes for
the future of the skate park. Once
it looks and works the way he
and skateboarding members
want, Jackson plans to host skat-
ing events and demonstrations
performed by well-known skate-
boarders from across the country.


STUDENT LIFE

Chocolate, like the force, has its own light and dark side


By CASSANDRA BIANCO
Alligator Contributing Writer

Lifelong dancer and UF junior Rita
Larchar said she eats some chocolate at
least twice a day and every morning for
breakfast.
"I always have to eat chocolate, whether
it's from cookies, muffins, cakes, brownies
or cheesecake," Larchar said. "I just can't go
without it."
Researchers around the globe continue
to tap into the many magical components of
chocolate, including antioxidants that may
help guard against cancer and heart disease.
But as Easter approaches and chocolate bun-
nies leave the shelves, UF nutritionists point


out that there's good and bad in every food.
Melanie Brede, a nutritionist at UF's
Student Health Care Center, said magne-
sium is a possibly beneficial ingredient in
chocolate because it is important for cells'
health.
"You can get magnesium in nuts, seeds,
and dark-green veggies, but people don't get
quite as excited about those," Brede said.
Linda Bobroff, a UF nutrition profes-
sor, said that eating small amounts of dark
chocolate is good for antioxidants and plant
chemicals that help protect against heart dis-
ease, but moderation is key.
"We don't want people to think eating a
lot of chocolate is a healthy way to approach
your diet," Bobroff said.


"You can get magnesium in nuts,
seeds and dark-green veggies, but
people don't get quite as excited
about those."
Melanie Brede
UF nutritionist

Antioxidants are seeti as beneficial be-
cause they help stop the oxidation of lipids,
commonly known as fats, which can create
cellular damage. Fat in chocolate does not
only consist of saturated fats, which are
commonly considered bad fats, but unsatu-
rated fats as well.
"One of the major challenges in this


country today is extreme obesity, and people
really cannot afford to be adding an extra
200 to 300 calories a day to their otherwise
overly caloric diets," Bobroff said.
However, there is no scientific evidence
that obese people consume more chocolate
than people who are not obese.
Both experts agree that darker chocolate
is more beneficial than milk chocolate be-
cause it has a higher cocoa content and less
sugar. There are even some candies on the
market that have 60 percent cocoa content.
"It helps to reflect that there really aren't
any good or bad foods," Brede said. "With
anything you can find pros and cons, and
trying to get a good variety and balance
helps keep you healthy."

Cho promises


laughs tonight
By SASHA MURADALI
Alligator Contributing Writer
Though the National Organization for Women has rec-
ognized her for making a significant difference promoting
equal rights regardless of race, sexual orientation or gen-
der identity, comedian and actress Margaret Cho said she
never meant to be a role model.
"I just speak my truth," she said in the biography on-
her Web site.
Accent, UF's speakers' bureau, presents Margaret Cho,
performing at the Stephen C. O'Connell
Center tonight at 8.-Doors open at 7
p.m. The show is free to the public and
is a part of Pride Awareness Month, an
annual Pride Student Union program.
SAccent spent $26,200 to bring Cho, in-
eluding airfare and accommodations.
Cho started .performing standup
Cho at age 16 in a comedy dub, and soon
afterward she won first prize in a com-
edy contest and opened for Jerry Seinfeld, according to
her Web site. In 1994, she starred in her own ABC sitcom,
called "All-American Girl," according to a press release.
"The students should be laughing and should go out
with a smile on their faces," said Evan Tyroler, chairman
of Accent.
Cho is the last Accent show of the year, and Tyroler
expects it to draw a great turnout.

City OKs sports arena


* COMMISSIONERS SAID A HOTEL
BED TAX SHOULD FUND THE ARENA.

By DOMINICK TAO
Alligator Writer

A county hotel-room tax increase should
be used to build a new sports arena in
East Gainesville, city commissioners said
Monday.
The extra 1 percent tax increase could
generate about $550,000 each year, which
Gainesville city commissioners unani-
mously voted the county should use to
fund construction of a basketball and vol-
leyball arena.
For Commissioner Ed Braddy, this was
his first regular city commission meeting
attended after being arrested for driving
under the influence of alcohol in January.
Braddy was not present for this issue
and did not vote. Commissioner Chuck
Chestnut was also not in attendance.
Alachua County commissioners decided
they wanted to raise the hotel bed tax a few
weeks ago, and city commissioners decided
Monday that the county should use the
money to build an arena for amateur sports
at the Martin Luther King Jr. Multipurpose
Center on Northeast 14th Street.
"Research shows sports is one of
Gainesville's top tourism markets," said
John Pricher, Alachua County's tourism
program assistant. "And we're a bit short
on facilities in the area."
City commissioners said that the arena
would be a good way to attract youth sport-


ing events or the Sunshine State Games to
Gainesville, which would boost the city's
economy and tourism market.
And as much as 60 percent of the income
generated by the bed tax comes from hotel
rooms rented out for UF sporting events
and conferences, Pricher said.
"Everybody comes to see the university
in one way or another," he said. Lack of va-
cancy in local hotels suggests the same.
"Oh yeah we're already sold out
three games into the season," said Jonathan
Manzano, a representative from the
Holiday Inn Express on Southwest 43rd
Street, speaking of the first three football
games next Fall.
The county asked
Gainesville City its cities to submit
Commission project ideas because
it wanted to take ad-
vantage of a Florida statute that would al-
low it to raise the current 3 percent bed tax
to 4 percent as long as the revenue would
be used for a facility that would promote
tourism.
Despite its approval by the City
Commission, Pricher said a new sports
arena for Gainesville is still far from a sure
thing.
He said the selection will ultimately be
up to the County Commission.
While the city commissioners supported
the idea of a new arena in town, they de-
bated on its locations. The two locations
in mind were the Martin Luther King Jr.
Multipurpose Center and Depot Park,
which is closer to downtown. Ultimately,
the Multipurpose Center won out.


Local gas to reach $3


By PANAGIOTA PAPAKOS
Alligator Contributing Writer

The price of a gallon of regular gaso-
line in Gainesville is expected to hit the
$3 mark by summer, while the average
price for the state of Florida has already
climbed 45 cents from this time last
year.
"Everybody knows the prices are
going up," said Sam Barikh, manager of
the BP gas station on Southwest Archer
Road.
Barikh and other managers around
town predict the price to rise because of
the increasing cost of doing business, in
addition to the usual summer increase in
demand.
Good weather and vacations-increase
the demand for gas in the summer by
about 5 percent compared to the rest
of the year, according to the Energy
Information Administration.
Distribution, marketing and retail
dealer costs and profits combined make
up 12 percent of the cost of a gallon of
gasoline, while federal, state and local
taxes account for about 23 percent, ac-
cording to the administration.
Since the start of 2005, gas prices
have been on the rise, climbing as high
as $3.07 a gallon on Sept. 5, when the
aftermath of Hurricane Katrina dramati-


cally reduced supply.
In an unusual move, President Bush
announced in his 2006 State of the Union
address that America is addicted to oil
and promised to make a new kind of
ethanol within six years.
UF economics professor Dave
Denslow said the fundamental causes
for the recent increase are higher oil
prices and growing demand.
He said other countries, like France,

"We could be doing more to reduce
the demand for gasoline," he said. "But
I don't see that policy changing anytime

Denslow added that when gas prices
go up, people are less likely to spend
money on other goods and are less likely
to purchase larger vehicles.
Nationally, the average price for
gasoline in 2005 was $2.27, but now the
average has hit $2.67, according to the

Editorial


Giving in

French government

bows to ignorant rioters
S sometimes, standing up for what is right just isn't worth it.
Or so French President Jacques Chirac would have us all
believe.
Yesterday, Chirac capitulated to the hordes of violent pro-
testers rallying against a controversial new employment law.
The First Job Contract law would have allowed employers to
fire workers under the age of 26 for any reason or no reason
- during their first two years of employment.
If you think that the law sounds discriminatory and that the
protesters just might be right, hold on a second.
France's labor market remains massively overregulated. In
particular, French labor law makes it extraordinarily difficult for
employers to fire their workers. But while that sounds like great
news for employees, it's taking its toll on poor French youths
looking for jobs.
If employers can't fire new employees, they'll be much more
selective in the workers that they hire. That manifests itself
in abnormally high unemployment rates for French youths
- more than 20 percent for 18- to 25-year-olds.
It also means that employers don't have the same economic
deterrents to avoid discriminatory hiring policies. That might
explain why some poor immigrant neighborhoods have unem-
ployment rates of around 40 percent.
But the First Job Contract law would have changed all that.
Employers wouldn't have been locked into their hires, as they
are now. Knowing that they would retain the ability to fire em-
ployees later on, employers could stand to be more trusting of
young workers at the outset.
As a result, youth employment would have skyrocketed.
But French labor unions weren't having it. They claimed
that the law was discriminatory and an infringement of work-
ers'.rights.
Of course, those same labor unions also had the most to gain
with the repeal of the law, because unions only represent people
who are already employed. By encouraging employers to hire
more young people, the law would have increased competi-
tion between older workers and newer ones, probably driving
union wages down.
But no matter.
French youths who have repeatedly demonstrated their
proclivity for rioting took to the streets, eschewing higher
employment and basic economics in favor of smoldering cars,
broken store windows and chaos in general. As the riots pro-
gressed, the protesters took control of the country.
And yesterday, the French government found itself surren-
dering to an occupying force once again.
We can't say we're surprised, but we are disappointed. The
move was largely an attempt by Chirac to save face, as his
popularity has plummeted the past few months.
But it has crushed the presidential hopes of French Prime
Minister Dominique de Villepin, who originally proposed the
First Job Contract legislation specifically in response to last
year's violent riots.
Yesterday, de Villepin, who has steadfastly maintained
throughout the ordeal that the French government wouldn't
back down, found himself backpedaling, saying he only want-
ed "better balance ... between more flexibility for the employer
and more security for workers. ... This was not understood by
everyone, I'm sorry to say."
It is a brutal irony that a man so concerned with improving
the plight of the French people would now find himself so vili-
fied by those he sought to help.
We hope we haven't seen the last of the First Job Contract
law. But then again, if the protesters are so ardent in their sup-
port of high unemployment, maybe French government offi-
cials should just let them have it.

Bush doesn't "leak," he classifiese"

Bush doesn't "leak," he declassifiess"


ood evening, my fellow Americans. I've inter-
rupted tonight's broadcast of "The Amazing
Race," which I assume is a documentary on the
Chinese, to make a special announcement.
Three years ago, someone in my administration re-
vealed the identity of Valerie Plame an undercover
CIA agent to the press. As it turns out, that's illegal.
I swore then and there to find the guilty party. "If
there's a leak out of my administration," I said, "I want
to know who it is." Of course, the culprit turned out to
be Karl Rove, my top political adviser. So I let it drop.
Karl said that would be best.
Since then, we've had more leaks than a New
Orleans levee. My domestic spying program leaked.
My secret CIA prisons -'leaked. That weird dream I
had about Condoleezza Rice whoops, Freudian slip.
Forget I said that.
Anyway, Karl says we can really go after the leak-
ers this time. After all, those National Security Agency
wiretaps were classified, even if they were illegal. More
importantly, I looked pretty bad when the story broke
in The New York Times. And when I look bad, the ter-
rorists win.
That's why I told the FBI to shake down a few report-
ers. If they won't reveal their source, maybe a couple
of weeks in jail will change their tune. And when we
do find the whistleblower, Mr. Goody Two-Shoes has a
date with Dick Cheney, a beer and a shotgun.
Now, if you're anything like me, you're probably say-
ing, "I hate those dirty, al-Qaida-loving whistleblowers
too, Mr. President. But I read in the paper that you've
leaked classified information yourself."
Then again, if you're anything like me, you're prob-

ably watching "Walker, Texas
Ranger" right now. And you
definitely don't read the paper.
But whatever.
My lawyers tell me that I, as
president of the U.S., can't pos-
sibly leak classified information:
Why? Because when I do it, I'm
not "leaking" I'm "declassify-
ing."


So what's the difference?
I know it sounds confusing. Hell, when it comes to
bills and laws and whatnot, if it's not on "Schoolhouse
Rock," I don't understand it myself.
But think of it this way: My administration doesn't
condone torture. But we do allow "waterboarding," in
which a prisoner's head is dunked in water until he or
she almost drowns. Waterboarding: It sounds fun, like
something you do behind a speedboat in an inner tube.
Or take "extraordinary rendition." Sure, it seems a
lot like kidnapping. You're walking down the street in,
say, Italy, when all of a sudden a van pulls up. A man
hops out, throws a hood over your face and stuffs you
inside. Eight hours later, you wake up in Uzbekistan.
Did somebody say free vacation? Be sure to try the
local specialties: boiled shoe leather and suicide.
I know it's getting late, so I'll wrap things up. If the
government breaks the law, and you know about it,
keep your mouth shut. If you really want to talk about
it, I guess you'll just have to run for president.
Thank you, and may God bless America.

Reasons for immigration more complex than opponents let on


This is in response to the letter written
by Justin Brand in Monday's Letters
to the Editor.
Not only did Brand write a ridiculously
inane argument in support of harsher im-
migration legislation in his letter Monday,
he also failed to rebut any of Adrianna
Sanchez's valid arguments on the matter.
There are numerous social and economic
reasons for emigrating from one's native
country to the U.S. Many people are indeed
forced to come to the U.S. in search of work.
Frequently, immigrants mail money gener-
ated from their U.S. incomes home to sup-
port families that still live in their native
countries. If they could easily find jobs at
home, they would not risk their lives and.
spend unmentionable amounts of money to
immigrate here. In addition, they know they

have no rights as illegals, yet they are still
determined to make it, which indicates that
there is something in the U.S. that makes
their efforts extremely worthwhile.
If you're having a hard time imagin-
ing why one would want to come here so
badly, try imagining this: You're a woman
who works more than 12 hours a day, six or
seven days a week, in a factory that forces
you to take birth control pills but tells you
that they're pills to fight infection. If you
don't take them and get pregnant, they'll ei-
ther force you to get an abortion or fire you.
You can't get fired because you have other
children to feed. Your older children, one of
them 10, are working right beside you in the
same NAFTA-produced factory day in and
day out and cannot attend school because
they want to eat. Now how do you feel


Even with price hike, football tickets are underpriced
When I first heard ticket prices would be raised to $70, I,
like most students, wasn't pleased with the news. But some
of you are acting like it's our God-given right to get cheap
football.
Last year the NFL average for a ticket was $54.75, and
that's for one game! We are only being asked to pay $70
dollars for seven games. Any sports fan would know that
this is a paltry amount. With the abundance of Gators fans
throughout the nation, they could easily sell each ticket for
$50 and really profit. Instead, they generously charge us a
minimal fee, and all they get for it is complaining. If you
don't like the price, don't buy the tickets.

Lisa Gill about immigration?
Speaking Out This was a real situa-
tion for some Mexican
women.
There are plenty of jobs in the U.S. that
only illegal immigrants will accept, and ag-
ricultural jobs are a prime example. I have
volunteered teaching Spanish to a blueberry
farm owner and his staff on Waldo Road.
They have thousands of workers each har-
vest season, very few of which, if any, are
nonimmigrants. I once picked blueberries
with the workers and didn't make it any
longer than an hour and a half. I had picked
less than one full bucket of blueberries,
my back was burning, and I would have
only made a grand total of $8 for my labor.

Paper shouldn't be criticized for running Meyer column
Recently the Alligator has been unjustly coming under
attack for the content of a guest article.
While I don't agree with Andrew Meyer's article in any
way, I do not believe the Alligator should be condemned for
putting it in the newspaper.
The Opinions section is open to various guest columnists
who write on a wide range of issues, but it is equally open to
responses to those articles.
The fairness and balance of this section is evidenced
by the fact that they ran two separate articles in response
to Meyer, both of which actually criticized the newspaper
itself.
While you may not agree with Meyer, do not fault the
Alligator for letting him express his opinions in they same


American citizens to do this same work,
they would demand much higher wages,
and produce prices would skyrocket. .
In direct response to the ridiculous con-
cept of wall building, it is urgent people
understand that Mexico is not the only
source of immigration into the U.S. Erecting
a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border is basically
a form of discrimination against Mexicans. If
we are looking to control immigration in this
absurd manner, we must be consistent in our
measures and erect a wall around our entire
nation. Is this not just as absurd as erecting a
wall only between the U.S. and Mexico?
Perhaps one should consider reading
about the realities of immigration before
making completely unsubstantiated claims
about getting "our facts straight."

Ticket price hikes good for weeding out the worst fans
Student ticket prices for football games at UF are already at
rock-bottom prices in comparison to those of our peers in the
rest of the country. Perhaps a $28 increase in ticket prices for
a full season is nothing more than to weed out non-die-hard
Gators fans like Brenden Doherty from buying the tickets
while real fans have the opportunity to get what they want.

the state must consider whether
each applicant would fulfill a need
of the university. Such needs include
geographic, socioeconomic and'eth-
nic diversity; artistic talent; and the
potential for public service.
"This year, because of our limita-
tions, because of the nature of our
program, you practically have to
have it all," he said.
Herring said some UF under-
graduates have younger siblings
who are better students than they
are, but who were rejected this
Spring.

Left behind
High selectivity bodes well for
UF's incoming student body,. but
it has left some petulant parents
behind.
On parents, Herring said: "The
level of involvement is much more
intense than it historically has
been."
Rejected applicants may appeal
their admission, but those who ap-
ply for an appeal receive a letter that
states: "Only applicants with truly
compelling personal circumstances
are encouraged to appeal."
Political science professor Albert
Matheny serves on the committee
that judges these appeals. He said
there were twice as many this year
as there were in 2005.
Last week, Matheny's committee
reviewed 200 appeals in about six
hours, he said.

Matheny said a strong appeal
letter may project a niche for the

detail an extraordinary circumstance
that the applicant had to overcome,
such as severe poverty or disease.
Matheny receives many e-mails
from parents, and not all are as cor-
dial as the rest.
"Occasionally you'll get some
that'll say, 'I went there in the '70s
and I've always told my kids that
they were going to get in, and I
don't see why you won't let them

not been produced yet, Matheny
said the average student admitted to

that about half of them will not
enroll. They call the percentage that
enrolls the "yield rate."
Last year, when parts of Florida
were decimated by four consecutive
hurricanes, the university offered
too many slots, expecting that many
accepted students would not come.
As a result, dormitories were crowd-
ed, and lecture halls were stuffed.
Officials use the previous year's
yield rate to gauge the next year's,
but they can only guess.
"What you're trying to do is
predict what 10,400 17-year-olds are
going to do," Herring said.
And there is often an "X factor,"
like last year's hurricanes. This year,
that factor is the NCAA basketball
championship win.
Herring estimates that about 540
more students than predicted will be
drawn to UF by a desire to be where
the Gators are.

Committee approves removal of library breezeway


* COMMITTEE MEMBERS CALLED THE STRUCTURE
USELESS AND UNATTRACTIVE.
By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Staff Writer
Ilewis@alligator.org
As UF works to complete the renovation of its flagship
library, university officials decided Wednesday afternoon that
Library West's surrounding landscape needs a little improve-
ment, as well.
Just one month before the library is scheduled to reopen,
the Preservation of Historic Buildings and Sites Committee ap-
proved the removal of the breezeway that connects the build-
ing to Library East.


Committee members cited the structure, often called a por-
tico, as an unattractive and almost useless feature.
"It's pretty ugly," said Roy Graham, an architecture profes-
sor and one of the dozen or so officials who attended the meet-
ing. Other committee members pointed out that the portico
proves beneficial on rainy days.
"The Krishna people find it very
U ml i convenient, when the weather is in-
Aimlitir5atia clement, to sequester themselves [un-
der the portico], as do the Krishnas'
food-eaters," committee chairman John Ingram said.
Still, committee members were ultimately persuaded to
remove the structure for the sake of aesthetic value.
"You know, next year, instead of having students tear down
the wall of hate, maybe they should tear down the portico of


hate," joked committee member James Cusick, referencing
UF's annual Writing on the Wall project.
Committee members also approved other changes to the
campus landscape, including the upcoming construction of the
George Steinbrenner Band Building.
Steinbrenner owns the New York Yankees.
The facility, due to be completed by June 2007, will cost
about $6 million to build about $3 million more than initially
anticipated.
"Dr. Machen was kind enough to give us $3 million, but
that still leaves us $1 million short," project manager Cydney
McGlothlin told committee members.
McGlothlin said during an interview that the College of
Fine Arts, which oversees the building's construction, will be
responsible for raising additional funding.

liewis@alligator.org s. '

A plan to slash the size of Student Government's bu- ,
reaucracy may go forward this Spring, though a similar
measure recently collapsed in the Student Senate. .
The plan, which would cut the number of SG w o.i
cabinets from 41,to 20, is being championed by Student -.

oversee the Cabinet when she takes office in May.
The Cabinet is an executive body designed to work
as a liaison between students and SG officials, and to i t
provide programs for students.
"We combined the responsibilities, and we gave
more weight to more important areas around campus,"
Washington said Monday.
Student Body Vice President Joyce Medina, who
oversees the offices until May 1, tried to cut the
Cabinet's size to 11 offices, citing inefficiency and lack
of accountability. '

Abbey Road date auction to help Lymphoma cause


Bidding scheduled for tonight at 10


By SARAH LEVY
Alligator Contributing Writer


The Lymphoma Awareness
Committee is lending a hand
to lonely Gators with their first
annual date auction at 10 p.m.
Tuesday at Abbey Road. The date
auction will not only help stu-
dents' social lives, but it will also
raise money for the Lymphoma
Research Foundation, a charity
devoted to funding lymphoma


cancer research and providing
patients and health care profes-
sionals with critical information
on the disease.
There will be a $5 entry fee to
get into the event.
Thirty dates will be auctioned
off to help raise money for the
charity. Many members of UF's
fraternities and sororities will be
participating, as well as some UF
athletes.
"A few UF football players


are going to be auctioned off,"
said Jared Kleinman, president
of the Lymphoma Awareness
Committee. "There's also going
to be a model, an Olympic swim-
mer and other UF athletes. We're
-having a great turnout."
Kleinman founded the com-
mittee last year in honor of his
grandfather and mother, who
both died from cancer.
"I wanted to do something
as a tribute for them," Kleinman


said.
The committee hopes to raise
between $4,000 to $5,000 from the
date auction.
"I'm really excited to be
auctioned off."
Kathryn Fitzgerald
UF sophomore

Many local restaurants are
sponsoring the event with gift
certificates for the participants'
dates. Bennigan's, Dragonfly
Sushi & Sake Company, Olive


Garden, The Swamp and other
restaurants have all contributed.
"Although most of the people
participating do not need help
finding a date, they are happy to
help out and raise money for the
foundation," said Ben Krinsky,
the Lymphoma Awareness
Committee treasurer.
"I'm really excited to be
auctioned off," said Kathryn
Fitzgerald, a nutrition sophomore
who is participating in the event.
"I think it will be a lot of fun and
it's for a really good cause."

CAPPING OFF AN ERA





Graduates reflect on four years at UF


By MARIA LAVERGHETTA
Alligator Writer

As her parents drove away from
Fletcher Hall, Yanique Mitchell started to
get scared.
"It was my first time being away from
home," she said. "I was in the car. We were


driving. I realized they were going to drop
me off and not going to come back."
Mitchell, who moved with her entire
family from Jamaica to Miami, said the
five hour drive home to her family was too
much.
Her seven uncles, three aunts and
countless cousins who were within walk-
ing distance her entire life added to the
heartache she felt during her first week at-
UF, she said.
In addition, her best friend since el-
ementary school and roommate hadn't
arrived yet and wouldn't arrive for another
week.
"I kept calling my mom because I felt
lonely," she said.
Even the campus map looked threaten-
ing, but at the same time, it was all so excit-
ing and freeing, she said.
Like Mitchell, thousands of students
share in their humble beginnings at col-
lege, where the itch for freedom and the
sting of homesickness collide.
Then, before they know it, it's four
years later. They're graduating.
Denise Cuevas, a graduating inte-
rior design senior, is torn on whether she's
looking forward to graduating, she said. -

Remembering the past helps though,
she said.
The past four years at UF brought new

The addition of Bernie Machen as

On Jan. 5, 2004, the tentative new presi-
dent, former president of the University of
Utah, strived to push UF into becoming
one of the best schools in the nation with
full force.
Cuevas said she felt it was a good idea
to hire Machen because she thinks he has
done good things for the school.
Eugenia Izmaylova, a graduating senior
finance student, said that Charles Young,
the former UF president before Machen,
was a great leader, but it was just his time
to leave.
"He was just getting old and didn't have
the energy," she said.
She was glad when Machen came into
office because it sparked change at UF,
Izmaylova said.
Once Machen took his position, the
fight for building a better UF became even
more central.

Jamal Sowell became the fourth black
Student Body president in 2004.
After a rocky first few months at UF,
the former head coach of the football team,
Ron Zook, started appearing under the
microscope.
On Sep. 16, 2004, a squabble between
Phi Kappa Phi and some football players
spurred a passionate Zook to interfere.
When Zook arrived at the Phi Kappa
Phi fraternity house, he saw Jason Bailey,
a Phi Kappa Phi brother who allegedly hit
football player Steven Rissler the night
before.
Zook told Bailey, "Oh you're the one
who hit Rissler? Oh you're going to get
yours," according to police reports.
After this information leaked out, UF
athletics director Jeremy Foley and UF
President Bernie Machen started to pay
closer attention to Zook The water began
to boil, and it eventually boiled over.
Following a 38-31 loss on Oct. 23, 2004
to then 1-5 Mississippi State, the administra-
tion decided to fire Zookjust two days after
the game but agreed to let him finish out the
current season.

Many UF alumni return to Gainesville to start careers


ByJACQUELINE DAVISON

Graduates entering the ever-
competitive job market should
be willing to compromise when
looking for jobs in Gainesville, job
counselors say.
"Graduating students can find
opportunities in Gainesville," said
Nadene Francis, spokeswoman for
the Career Resource Center. "The
question is, do they want to stay
and what are they hoping to do?"
Francis said a big factor students
should keep in mind is cost of living
in Gainesville. It's generally cheap-
er to live here than in Orlando or


Jacksonville, for instance. This
causes local employers' salaries to
be slightly lower.
Additionally, students should
consider the best starting point for
their careers, she said.
Dan Fumas graduated Spring
2005 with a degree in East Asian
Language and Literature. He stayed
in Gainesville because he was not
ready to move to the west coast to
find work in his field, he said.
He had worked as a teaching
assistant for AP biology students
before enrolling at UE Through
friends, he was hired to do qual-
ity control testing on food at Elisa
Technologies in Gainesville.
"I kind of lucked out with what


I got. I barely could get any inter-
views," Fumas' said. "The only
other job that gave me any sort of


positive response
was Books-a-
Million."
He advises
students to look
beyond the obvi-
ous in their post-
college pursuits
- there are job
possibilities where
there is experience.
"Don't be afraid
to look for a job

outside of what your degree is in. A
bachelor's degree is training you to
learn rather than training you to be


specialized," he said.
Katherine Moyses graduated
with a degree in German Languages
and Literature in
L i to December 2004.
b c rside Throughout college,
S s she worked week-
o ends at Shands.
After she
to graduated, she left
. ." yo Gainesville for about
....', .. a year before return-
mas ingto the samejob at
luate Shands. She was lat-
er promoted to her
current position as
a research coordinator for Clinical
and Health Psychology for UF.
"It's there if you want it,"


Moyses said of finding a local job.
"It takes a lot of perseverance."
Many people, like Moyses, leave
Gainesville and return later.
Francis graduated from UF
in 1999 with a degree in Public
Relations and had not planned on
returning to Gainesville to work.
"I remember leaving and saying
'I cannot wait to get out of here,'"
she said.
Now, she's been in her position
for six years and notes the differ-
ence in lifestyle since becoming a
professional such as not begin-
ning to party on Thursday night.
"I was very appreciative to see
Gainesville from a different side,"
she said.

'Boomerang generation' finds it hard to leave home


By DREW HARWELL
Alligator Contributing Writer

Sociologists call them the "boomerang
generation." Detractors call them freeload-
ers, slackers or "kidults," a cross between
kids and adults. Embittered parents call
them kippers: Kids Into Parents' Pockets
Eroding Retirement Savings. And when
you graduate, you just might be one of
them.
Julia Proby, 23, graduated with a bach-
elor's degree in business administration
in 2005 from UF's Warrington College of
Business. After graduation she lived with
her parents for six months, researching
4 to 6 hours a day for open positions in
the field of Meeting and Event Planning.
Without a job or a sufficient financial base,
she decided to move in with her parents so
she could begin to save money for when she
did move out.
"There really weren't any other options
for me," she said.
Proby believes it's "common" and even
"imperative" that recent college graduates
stay with their parents until "they are em-
ployed and financially stable enough to pay
for their lives on their own." She looked
forward to moving out and being on her
own, but thinks that "living independently
after school is unfathomable."
Proby's not alone. In fact, she's part of
the "boomerang generation," the more than
18 million Americans between the ages of 18
and 34 living in their parents' homes or in
parent-supported college dorms. According
to the U.S Census Bureau, 56.5 percent of
men and 46.5 percent of women between
18 and 24 14.3 million Americans in total
- were living at home in 2004.
According to the MonsterTRAK College
Graduation Survey, 60 percent of 2005 col-
lege students planned to move home after
graduation, a 3 percent increase from the
previous year. This plan has altered the


traditional roles of parents and children and
provoked an image of immaturity for the
"kidults" of the boomerang generation.
Jeanna Mastrodicasa, associate director
of the UF Honors Program and city com-
missioner-elect, said that students didn't
go back home in her parents' generation.
The trend of graduates "boomeranging"
back into their parents' homes and, typi-
cally, bankrolls is due to the "extremely
hands-on" nature of parents and the lack of
initiative in their children.
Many students today, she said, have


never held ajob and spend
too little time reflecting
and making their own deci-
sions to break free from the
nest. Parents, too, are "very
welcoming and totally fine"
with their children moving
back, providing a "com-
fort zone" that can coddle
the child at an age when
previous generations were
asserting their adulthood,
she said.

Albert R. Matheny, director of the
Academic Advising Center wrote in an
e-mail that he believes "everyone is trying
to be a 'kid' these days," and marketers
reinforce our feeling young, or even child-
ish, by taking away the stigma of living at
home.
"In fact, it's a sign of perpetual, youth,"
he wrote.
The previous generations' parent-child
separation process has been rejected by
many parents who can't let their kids de-
velop a sense of individuality.
"The world-is not safe enough to toler-
ate raising a child who is independent,"
Matheny wrote.
This leads to the development of "he-
licopter parents," who hover over their
children's lives, and "lawnmower parents,"
who cut down anything negative in their


child's way, he said. Matheny said he has
talked to both types more and more each
year since he began working at UF in 1998.
For UF student Ashleigh Schmidt, 22,
the move back in with her parents was
about finances. Schmidt has lived with her
parents for eight months while she works as
an unpaid intern and completes her degree.
"Living with parents is a safe place to be
while you're job hunting," she said.
Like Proby, she decided to move back
in with her parents when she realized she
didn't have the money to move out on her
own.' She knows of stu-
n no way dents like her who haven't
at launch- been able to secure a job
Right after college, haven't

vantage Of or have been too sunk in

,~t, place to live away from
their family.
'roby Statistics support the
duate notion that students are
not yet financially inde-
pendent. The Center for
Economic and Policy Research reported in
2004 that the rate of student loan debt is 85
percent higher among recent graduates than
it was 10 years ago, with the average senior
graduating with student loans of $17,600.
Proby admits to "some disagreements"
with her parents over details like curfews,
but for the most part her friends and family
were congratulatory toward her graduation
and supportive of her future, allowing her
"all the time and space I'needed to land the
exact job I was looking for."
Both Proby and Schmidt said their
parents were excited for their daughters
to return home, but some parents have
expressed impatience at their children's
dependence. In research for the Canadian
Journal of Sociology, 67.3 percent of parents
reported that they "sometimes felt that their
returnee was taking advantage of them."


Some might point a finger at the job
market, which has proved to be confound-
ing to some and may have contributed to
the boomerangers' plight. Entry-level and
low-wage positions have not synchronized
their pay with inflation in recent years.
However, workers in UF's Counseling
center have met many students who are
too afraid to even look for jobs, some even
delaying their graduation so they don't have
to actually join the "real world" ofjobs, in-
dependence and self-sufficiency.
The boomerang generation seems to
be less of a Western phenomenon and
more of a global problem. Research from
the Prudential in London reported that,
in England, 6.8 million adults over the
age of 18 live with their parents. Japanese
psychologist Saito Tamaki estimates that
around 1 million Japanese, or 1 percent of
the population, are "hikikomori" shut-
ins, typically twenty-something males, who
live in their parents' homes without jobs
or schooling from anywhere between six
months to 15 years. Recently, a 30-year-
old Italian bachelor successfully sued his
parents when they tried to persuade him to
leave the nest.
The trend is even manifesting itself
through film and television. The roman-
tic comedy "Failure to Launch" shows
parents who hire a dream woman to
entice their 35-year-old son, played by
Matthew McConaughey, out of their
house. Meanwhile, the new FOX sitcom
"Free Ride" follows college graduate Nate
Stahlings as he lives up to his surname
by moving back in with his parents. The
stories are fictional but not too different
from the millions of graduates in similar
situations.
Still, Proby sees nothing wrong with the
situation.
"I would in no way say I failed at launch-
ing thy career or have taken advantage of a
free ride from my parents," she said.

Graduation spans four days


By LINDSEY FRANCO
Alligator Writer
Ifranco@alligator.org

Thousands of students clad in caps
and gowns will cross the stages of the
Stephen C. O'Connell Center, the Phillips
Center for Performing Arts, the Health
Professions Nursing Pavilion Auditorium
or University Auditorium between the
morning of May 4 and the afternoon of
May 7.
But before these Gators crawl out of the
Swamp on Graduation Day or, in UF's
case, days they should know the basics.
Commencement locations will be
determined by the size of each college,
and each college will conduct its own
graduation ceremony during the four-day
stretch.
For the 2004 commencement, UF
brought together every college on the Reitz
Union North Lawn for a fireworks display
and a speaker, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.
But this year, UF has no plans to invite
a speaker.
Larger colleges, such as the College of
Engineering, will hold -graduation in the
O'Connell Center, and smaller colleges,
such as Fine Arts, will pack into University
Auditorium.
Seating is open at the O'Connell
Center, but students will be provided with
tickets for guests.
Rick Ragan, assistant university regis-
trar, said for every student graduating, UF
plans to accommodate six or seven guests.
"It could get a little cozy in the
O'Connell Center, but you know, they
always find a place for them," he said.
Graduation seats remain ample, but
hotel accommodations are not so abun-
dant. Hotels across Gainesville are already
packed.
Holiday Inn University Center has


been booked for six months, said Ron
Homestead, a manager.
He said the Holiday Inn's prime loca-
tion, at West University Avenue and 13th
Street, causes a crunch during graduation
and football season.
On the other side of town, hotels and
motels lining Interstate 75 are full. Cabot
Lodge off Archer Road is booked for
graduation but plans for cancellations the
week before, said front desk clerk Karlan
Jankowski.
Ironically, students will leave graduation
empty-handed diplomas will be mailed
in mid-July.

Students from smaller colleges, like the
College of Fine Arts, will graduate in the
University Auditorium (above) between
May 4 and May 7.


Library West coses, Zook leaves


REVIEW, FROM PAGE 1


Chris Cook, a graduating physics
senior, will attend graduate school at
the University of Illinois, where Zook
is now the head coach. He said Zook
should have tried to let the players
handle the fight-with Pi Kappa Phi
themselves.
"I know that it had to do with the


team, but I don't
think it was his role
to get that involved,"
Cook said.
Even though
Cook said Zook
"sucks," he doesn't
mind watching Zook
coach at Illinois
because Zook is a
"character."
"Illinois sucks
anyway," he said.
"He kind of adds to
the joke."
After Zook's two
rumors buzzed about

After Urban Meyer, the fight
against alcohol took over.
Alcohol policies drove students to
put down beer and pick up textbooks.

tailgating and drinking inside the
stadium brought heated debates from
students, alumni and faculty.

Dec. 6, 2004.

Machen's whole cam-

"The problem that

is not knowing when

The re-opening of
Library West in the
Fall is a big downer
for seniors.


Liz Prann, a graduatingjournalism
major, said she wished she could have
used it.
"From what I know, it is going
to be a pretty unbelievable facility,"
Prann said.
After four years of school, campus
became home for graduating seniors.
The distant day of stepping into
freedom now takes on new meaning
- one that could not have happened
without four years of diligent work,
said Izmaylova.
"I couldn't have asked for anything
else," Izmaylova said.

SCPING OFFA ERA


Graduates delay careers to work for the public good


By EMILY YEHLE
Alligator Staff Writer
eyehle@alligator.com

For Meghan McManus, sum-
mer vacation means living in a
chicken coup.
She sleeps on an old, hard bunk
bed on a cold cement floor. A tin
roof protects her from the rain,
while a chain-link fence keeps out
wandering pigs and roosters. A
piece of blue tarp wrapped around
the fence guards against malaria-


carrying mosquitoes.
During the day, McManus vol-
unteers at Home for the Hope of a
Child, an orphanage on the coast
of the Dominican Republic. She
plays games with the children,
teaches them English and eats
simple Dominican dishes of rice,
beans and meat.
The UF marketing senior feels
right at home.
"I get the best sleep ever," she
said, quickly adding: "I know it
sounds weird."


Keeley McCarty, a Japanese studies senior, applied to the Japan Ex-
change Teaching Programme in an effort to get practical experience.


And yet her comfort isn't out of
the ordinary. UF career counselors
and community service officials
have noticed a surge of student
goodwill since Sept.--11, 2001,
and although the number of those
wanting to help peaked years ago,
the event has had a lasting effect.
Not only are many graduating
students eager to make a differ-
ence, they are worried about their
lack of "real world" skills in what
they perceive as a competitive job
market.
Although UF has no statistics
on the issue, many university of-
ficials agree on the result: Fewer
students are starting traditional
careers and more are searching for
paid positions that broaden their
horizons.
This summer, McManus might
not return to the Dominican
orphanage, but she will move to
Charlotte, N.C. to work with
impoverished children. She will
be one of thousands working
for Teach for America, a non-
profit organization that hires high-
achieving college graduates to
teach in failing schools. McManus
had offers for marketing positions,
.but she knew that accepting them
wouldn't fulfill her goals.
"When else am I going to have
the opportunity to go off and give
back to my country?" McManus
said. "I want to give back to the
country that's given me every-
thing."
Teach for America is highly
successful at recruiting over-
achievers to do low-paying, hard
work. About 17,000 applied for a
position last year; fewer than 20
percent were accepted. And so
far this year, more UF students
were accepted than from any other
Florida university.
Collette Taylor has helped UF
students get involved in commu-
nity service for nine years. Now
associate director for the Center
of Leadership and Service, Taylor
said three or four students a week
ask about Teach for America. She
attributes the program's success to
a focused mission that clearly ex-


plains how participants will make
a difference.
Her office has begun to use the
same tactics.
"People are finding out that
they can make a difference by
not necessarily becoming a doctor
right away," she said.
McManus has also noticed that
many of her friends are interested
in finding a structured place be-
yond college.
"It's a trend, that's for sure," she
said. "A lot of people don't know
what they want to do. Why not
put yourself in the halfway real
world?"
Farouk Dey, UF associate
director for career development,
said he's noticed a lower turnout
for job fairs and a higher interest
in graduate school in the past few
years indications that students
are looking for ways to continue
their education. He attributes this
to low confidence among stu-
dents, who worry that their educa-
tion doesn't prepare them for the
"real world."
"Even when they hear good
news, I think students and par-
tially parents buy into the idea
that they're not going to be suc-
cessful at getting ajob," he said.
This attitude is typical of the
current generation of students,
a group college counselors have.
dubbed the "millennial gen-
eration." These children of baby
boomers-grew up in an environ-
ment of positive feedback, of the
view that everyone is unique and
everyone can succeed. As a result,-
Dey said, students are less apt to
take risks and must secure their
success before they pounce on op-
portunity.
Keeley McCarty can't imagine
beginning a career when she grad-
uates from UF in May. Although
she will then have a degree in
Japanese, she's not convinced
that she can speak the language
fluently.
"I don't feel proficient enough
in Japanese to do anything with
it," she said. "I feel like a Japanese
degree is so useless."


Teach for America:
www.teachforamerica.com
The Japan Exchange
Teaching Programme:
www.jetprogramme.org
Peace Corps:
www.peacecorps.gov


So instead of looking for a tra-
ditional job in the United States,
she applied to the Japan Exchange
Teaching Programme, where
graduates are placed in Japanese
schools to teach English for one
year. And because she's a pre-med
student, she also applied to eight
medical schools.
She hopes that pursuing either
will teach her the practical skills
she needs to get ajob she wants.
"If I don't get into medical
school or the JET Programme,
then I might find a tall building,"
she joked when she first applied.
Students who don't have much
hands-on experience have the
lowest confidence in their ability
to get a job, Dey said. Programs
like Teach for America, JET and
the Peace corps fill that gap by of-
fering that missing experience in
the form of a structured program.
This mix of new experiences
and guaranteed safety nets appeals
to McCarty.
"You don't have to go there and
be confused," she said. "They tell
you what to do."
In the end, she was put on
the waiting list for one medical
school and accepted into the JET
Programme. She hasn't yet de-
cided where she'll end up.
But a traditional job seems
unlikely.
She can think of only one
friend who immediately found a
job after graduation.
After graduation, many are
looking for a compromise be-
tween college dependence and an
independent career, McCarty said.
"It's a middle ground a pur-
gatory- between college and the
real world," she said.

The Gainesville Experience
By KYLE CRAIG

T77e end ofthe school year is upon us the time fr all the soon-to-be graduates to make the most qf their last few
weeks in Gainer ille. To help, here is a list of the top 10 things to do before leaving town.


4 Orange & Brew
The Orange & Brew may not be the No. 1 hot
spot for drinking, but how can you pass it up?
Other than sneaking a flask into a football game, this is
really your only chance to drink on campus. And drink-
ing here won't get you into trouble. With a wide range of
available beers and late hours (it's open until 1 a.m. on
Fridays, it's one place on campus you shouldn't pass up.


Alligator File Photos


O Lake Wauburg
Lake Wauburg offers UF students fun
for free. Just bring your Gator 1 Card
to Wauburg, and you and your friends can go fishing,
canoeing, kayaking, sailing and swimming.
It's the ultimate Gainesville outdoor experience and
because it's free, there's no reason to pass it up. Head
down Southwest 13th Street toward Micanopy and
you'll see the sign for the lake.

9 Become a Globetrotter
Salty Dog Saloon on West University
Avenue offers one of the best bar experiences in
Gainesville, and becoming a Globetrotter is something
you shouldn't miss.
To become a Globetrotter you have to drink one
beer from each country listed on the beer menu in 60
days a total of 30 beers. Not only do you get a free
T-shirt, but you also get to drink some good beer in a
fun atmosphere.

8 Hare Krishna Lunch
It's not just for vegetarians and hippies.
Everyone should try the Krishna lunch on the
Plaza of the Americas. Not only is the .food good, it's
cheap only $3. Krishna Lunch has been served on
campus since 1971 and draws hundreds of students each
day.

7 Gator Stompin'
This graduation tradition is a must-do for
graduating seniors.
For $25 you spend the night of May 4 cruising res-
taurafits and barhopping to 32 different locations, in-
cluding Gator City, Fat Tuesday, Dragonfly and Mellow
Mushroom. At each bar you get one alcoholic or non-
alcoholic drink, and at each restaurant you get a food
item. And there's a free T-shirt.
Organizers are expecting more than 1,000 people this
yeartso make sure you make this happen.


6 Running of the Bulls
Each Fall, the women of the Panhellenic
Council hand out bids for their sororities to excit-
ed hopefuls on Norman Field. And each year, hundreds
of people show up to watch. Why the big turnout? It's
pure entertainment. Nowhere else in Gainesville will
you hear more screaming, witness more excitement and
see more tears all in one place. Whether or not you're a
part of the Greek community, sorority bid day, or "the
running of the bulls" is something you can't miss. Note:
This event takes place in the Fall, so if you're graduat-
ing, make it a reason to come back and visit next year.


5 Eat at The Swamp
If you didn't dine at The Swamp with your
parents during your freshman year, it's some-
thing you should probably make happen before you
leave town. It's not so much about the food as it is
about the environment. So stop by with mom and dad,
enjoy a pitcher of beer and some food, and enjoy one of
Gainesville's most cliched dining experiences.

3 Celebrate at Marston
Marston Science Library the library that isn't. Before
leaving, graduates should try to celebrate something (a
birthday, good exam grade, graduation, etc.) in the enormous
library where no one pays attention to the fact that, yes, this is
a library. You aren't supposed to answer your phone and talk
with "outside" voices. People have already been seen celebrat-
ing birthdays there with friends and cupcakes, so you won't
be the first obnoxious person to do it.

2 Ginnie Springs
Only 13 miles north of Gainesville, Ginnie
Springs is one of the best swimming and div-
ing spots around. There are seven different springs in
which to snorkel or dive. It's also fairly cheap: $10 de-
pending on what you want to do. There's also a river to
tube down with your friends. This spot will make any
hot Gainesville day a lot nicer.


Watch the Gators win a NCAA Championship
Soon-to-be graduates, you can check this off
your list. Thanks to the men of the UF basketball
team, we were all here for one of the greatest experiences
of our college careers. Aren't you glad you hung around
here for your fifth (or sixth) year to see it happen?

Students grab gowns "


before their diplomas


By CHRISTA WAGERS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Colleen O'Reilly will join her
peers inthe College ofJournalism
and Communications as they
walk across the stage in their
black gowns and caps with white
tassels for her commencement
ceremony on May 6.
She will celebrate complet-
ing years of study and holding
steady through the marathon of
her college career.
But a couple weeks later,
she'll be sitting in class again.
O'Reilly opted to walk "out
of term" in the Spring, even
though she will not complete
her classes until June. Summer
graduation is on August 12.
"I didn't feel like waiting,"
she said.
Walking "out of term" is
when a student receives special
permission from their adviser
or dean to go through com-
mencement but not graduate
until later.
O'Reilly said she was not
graduating with her friends
because she didn't take a large
enough course load.
O'Reilly's move is not un-
usual, assistant university reg-
istrar Rick Ragan said. In an e-
mail interview, he wrote that the

'AROUND CAMPUS


policy has been around at least
10 years at UF and is common at
other universities.
At any university, many more
students graduate in the Spring
than in the Summer.
Ragan said that 7,950 students
were eligible for graduation as of
April 3, compared to the ap-
proximately 3,500 who walk in
the summer.
Last year, 5,244 regalia pack-
ages were rented at the UF
Bookstores, said David Moore,
customer service director of the
bookstore.
Moore will not supply the
packages to students unless they
are graduating or have special
permission.
This special permission
was granted to nearly 40 from
the College of Journalism and
Communications, said Jon
Roosenraad, assistant dean for
student services.
Roosenraad said that although
not all of the colleges have this
policy, most are encouraged by
UF to allow students that will
be graduating in Summer A to
graduate -in Spring. Usually, the
other exception is if it is incon-
venient for the student to return
to the university because of an
internship or job.


Take a look back at your time as a student as you
look forward to becoming an alumnus!

TENNIS

UF seeks doubles improvement


* THE MEN'S TEAM COULD
FINISH UNDEFEATED AT
HOME IN THE SEC.

By ANTONIO GONZALEZ
Alligator Writer

Capturing at least a share of the
Southeastern Conference champi-
onship on Sunday didn't excite
the No. 3 UF women's tennis team.
The Gators are after something
else: an NCAA championship.
But to be on top of the ten-
nis world, UF coach Roland
Thornqvist said the Gators must
improve, especially in doubles.
"Without a doubt, if you want
to win an NCAA title, you have to
play good doubles," Thornqvist
said. "At times this year, we have
been good in doubles, other times
we haven't. We have to be more
consistent."
The Gators (17-1, 10-0 SEC)
have lost the doubles point in con-
secutive matches.
Although it was insignificant in
both; it has played a major role in
past losses.
For the last two years, the
Gators have been knocked out of


the NCAA Tournament with 4-3
losses.
In each, the doubles point
proved to be the difference. And
in the Gators' only defeat this sea-
son, a 4-3 loss to North Carolina,
doubles play again was respon-
sible.
"Without a doubt, if you
want to win an NCAA title,
you have to play good
doubles. At times this
year, we have been good
in doubles, other times
we haven't. We have to be
more consistent."
Roland Thornqvist
UF women's tennis coach

"I just think we're playing on
our heels too much [in doubles],"
Thornqvist said. "We're just not
as aggressive as we can be [in
doubles]."
On Sunday, Kentucky became
the second team this season to
sweep the Gators in doubles.
Miami was the other team to do
so.


The doubles loss to the Wildcats
snapped a 13-match win streak by
the sophomore team of Diana
Srebrovic and Lolita Frangulyan.
"I thought we regressed in dou-
bles this weekend," Thornqvist
said. "But the energy and passion
that was missing, I can promise
you it will be back."

MEN SHOOT FOR PERFECTION: The
No. 15 UF men's tennis team will
look to go undefeated at home in
the SEC for the fourth consecutive
season when it hosts South Carolina
on Saturday at the Ring Tennis
Complex at 1 p.m.
The Gators (13-6, 7-3 SEC) also
will look to clinch a first-round
bye in the SEC Tournament.
"We want to get back in the
[SEC] hunt," UF coach Andy
Jackson said. "I still feel the talent
is he-
"We just have to get our confi-
dence back up."
UF junior Janne Holmia re-
mains sidelined with a back in-
jury. There is no timetable for his
return.
Jackson said it is the same in-
jury that caused Holmia to miss
most of last season.

Third string quarterback more likely to see action on special teams


ROWLEY, from page 28


Utes. "That was the best placement for me as
a long snapper. I went to Utah as a long snap-
per, nothing else, and didn't expect anything
from it."
Rowley redshirted in 2004 as the Utes broke
the BCS code, becoming the first team from a
mid-major conference to earn a bid to one of
the four BCS bowls and finishing undefeated
with a Fiesta Bowl win against Pittsburgh.
At the Fiesta Bowl announcement party on
Dec. 5, 2004, a day after Meyer accepted the
UF job, he had a proposition for his long snap-


per: join him in Gainesville.
"The second that coach asked me if I
wanted to come back [to Florida], there was
no doubt in my mind that I was going to be a
Florida Gator for the next four years," Rowley
said.
While sitting out the 2005 season as a trans-
fer, Rowley lived up to the slash moniker. On
the scout team, he played a little linebacker,
some safety and helped out on special teams.
Then a role for him opened as UF's quar-
terbacks dropped off the depth chart. Dickey
moved to receiver in August before leaving
the team altogether in January. In December,
Portis decided to transfer. Then in the Outback
Bowl on Jan. 2, Ingram ended his short-lived


"People dream to play for the Uni-
versity of Florida. I'm living that
dream right now. "
Butch Rowley
UF long snapper/quarterback

quarterback career, switching to tight end.
When Tebow enrolled early, Rowley was
bumped back down to No. 3 on the depth
chart and will serve as the scout team quarter-
back this season, Mullen said.
"Butch still has to learn the offense,"
Mullen said. "He's going to run the scout team


because [incoming freshman Jarred] Fayson is
going to play wide receiver [instead of quar-
terback] for us. He's got to be in a role where
he can go in and knows how to hand the ball
off, knows how to run some of the plays,
knows the cadence, knows how to signal and
communicate from the sidelines and be our
sideline-coach quarterback."
Rowley doesn't expect to see the field on of-
fense this season but would be ready if called
upon. Long snapper mightbe a stretch too but
he expects to play on special teams.
"To even be in this position right now;
people dream to play for the University of
Florida," Rowley said. 'Tm living that dream
right.now."

Departing QBs open door for Utah transfer Rowley


* UF'S SCOUT TEAM LEADER
FOLLOWED COACH MEYER.

You come to practice to watch
Chris Leak's improvements or see
Tim Tebow throw for the first time
in a red, non-contact UF jersey.
Then there's No. 16, wearing a
regular blue jersey, stepping up after
Tebow and Leak make their throws.
But there isn't a No. 16 on the
roster.
No. 16 turns around, and you see
"ROWLEY" printed on the back of
his practice shirt.
Anxiously thumbing your handy
roster, you come upon No. 45 Butch
Rowley. He's a 6-foot-i, 205-pound
sophomore formerly of Utah and
Orlando First Academy. He's UF
coach Urban Meyer's only transfer
from Utah.
Under the position column reads
"LS/QB."
The enigma of the Gators' spring
roster, Rowley may as well be UF's
version of "Slash."
But on the field, he gets jokes be-
cause he's more like UF's version of


Georgia long snapper/quarterback
Joe Tereshinski Ill.
"It's a little bit of a mix-up,"
Rowley said. "I came in as a long
snapper, and we had Gavin [Dickey]
move, and then they moved
[Cornelius Ingram] to receiver and
then [Josh] Portis transferred. They
needed somebody to step in as a
quarterback. Coaches gave me the
opportunity."
Those coaches, Meyer and of-
fensive coordinator Dan Mullen,
first gave Rowley a chance four
years ago. With Meyer and Mullen
running the show
at Bowling Green,
Rowley attended

school.
A couple of

him as a quarterback, but Rowley
wanted to play at a major Division

schools Alabama and Mississippi of-
fered to bring him in as a long snap-
per, but so did Meyer and Utah.
"I took Utah based on the coach-
ing staff and how I fit in," said Kim Klement/ Alligator

UF looks to shake slump


By BRYAN JONES
Alligator Writer

The Gators were exhausted in more
ways than one Monday.
After an early-morning arrival from
Kentucky prevented many players
from a full night's sleep, the Gators (20-
16, 4-8 Southeastern Conference) find
themselves tired of losses that continue
to mount.
But while the solution to the former
is a simple one, the latter continues to
puzzle unranked UF.
"We're putting ourselves in winning
situations. We're just not getting that
key hit," first baseman Matt LaPorta
said. "We're working hard to get there,
but it is just a process right now."
When LaPorta missed 13 games
with an injured oblique muscle ear-
lier this season, many attributed UF's
struggles to the lack of firepower in the
lineup created by LaPorta's absence.


But since his return on March 17, the
Gators have lost 10 of 15 games.
Despite LaPorta homering in all
three games during the weekend
against Kentucky, UF still lost a series
to the Wildcats for the first time since
1999.
"It didn't re-
ally show in the box
score, but we played
well this weekend,"
shortstop Adam
Davis said. "We
bunted the ball well,
we executed some
LaPorta hit-and-runs, we
did some things that we work on hard
in practice right and we just didn't get
that hit. We needed one more hit, one
more pitch, and we just didn't get those
opportunities."

Tookes learns from incident


* THE WIDE RECEIVER SAID HE WAS
TRYING TO PUT THE RIFLE AWAY
WHEN IT FIRED.

By IAN FISHER
Alligator Staff Writer
ifisher@alligator.org

Receiver Kenneth Tookes said he has
learned from the off-season incident that
changed his life: He accidentally fired a
rifle belonging to former UF cornerback Dee
Webb into an apartment Feb. 11. No charges
were filed.
"People are so quick to want to throw
away someone's future off a mistake," said
Tookes, speaking publicly after Monday's
practice for the first time since the incident.
"That was my first incident ever since be-
ing here. I wasn't playing with the gun. I
was trying to put it up, and things went the
wrong way."
Tookes was not suspended and was never
charged, but football coach Urban Meyer
and Tookes' teammates have handled the
receiver's punishment internally. Tookes and
ot^


Meyer wouldn't go into details, but Tookes
said the punishment was tough and is still
ongoing. He said he feared being kicked off
the team. He was trying to quell the situa-
tion at Webb's apartment by putting the gun
away. Instead, it accidentally went off.
"But I just learned that when things hap-
pen, just get away from it," Tookes said.
"You try to be a hero and do what's good,
and it backfires on you."
The whole incident was hard for his fam-
ily, since they had to see his name in news-
papers, Tookes said. He said he wasn't doing
anything stupid and instead was trying to do
the right thing.
"It's crazy how big things can get from
one little thing," he said. "I learned from it.
It's life's lessons. I'll never get in that situa-
tion again in my life."

Thomas has been hampered with a hernia
injury that could require surgery. Meyer said

the independent florida of Florida Published by Campus Communications, Inc. of Gainesville, Florida igWe Inform. You Decide. VJLUVEr VV ESSUE L. t UF admissions V raI'ses the bar By JUSTIN RICHARDS Alligator Staff Writer jrichards@alligator.org At Palm Harbor University High School, students of the International Baccalaureate program once applied to UF with smug assurance. "It used to be that if you were in IB, you pretty much got in," said senior Ryan Mills, who was accepted to UF UF. But this Acadm ics year, "at least 30 kids in IB didn't get in, and they're all going to FSU." Mike Burkett, Mills' IB guidance counselor, said fewer than 30 were rejected, but he and his colleagues throughout the state were surprised at the number of "strong candidates" who were denied admission to UF. Nancy Carter, Burkett's counterpart at Deerfield Beach High School, made the same observation: UF grows more selective of its applicants eachyear. In order to slim its bloated undergraduate class for the 20062007 academic period, the university admitted fewer students than it has since 1991. For Burkett, a higher bar for UF admissions would have been easy to understand. But he thinks the bar is uneven. "We were hearing about students who -we were questioning, how on earth did UF let them in?" he said. Interim Admissions Director Pat Herring said the UF admission process has morphed over the last decade. In the late 1980s, students were simply ranked by grade point averages and SAT scores. It was easy to compare one to another. Now, students' numbers indicate who are candidates for admission, but the ultimate decision requires human scrutiny. Herring said the application readers -admissions staff, UF faculty and high school guidSEE REJECTED, PAGE 8 AROUND GAINESVILLE CLO alumni raise $10O for repwa"irs to the,@ building By DAVID"COHEN Alligator Writer dcohen@aligator.org Collegiate Living Organization alumni created a foundation two months ago to keep the 75-year-old, low-cost co-op alive. So far, $100,000 has been pledged for building upgrades and legal fees for the organization's lawsuit against UF. CLO Alumni Foundation Executive Director Vince Assini said 300 of the 1,300 CLO alumni have been contacted. "It's not nostalgia," Assini said. "We want it for the future." The foundation plans on keeping an eye on the CLO by starting a building account for repairs and removing irresponsible residents who do not fulfill their obligations, Assini said. UF officials have maintained since January that they want students out of the Northwest 15th Street location, noting that UF inspectors say it needs about $750,000 in repairs. However, CLO Alumni Foundation Director of Operations Robert Peele said the CLO is nearly finished repairing the problems and areas UF deemed unsafe and has spent less than $50,000 in the process. UF's $750,000 assessment is "ridiculous," he said. Peele said when he came to the CLO from northern Alabama for an organizational meeting in late February, "It wasn't a place, with my income and my standards, [where] I would want to stay." But he said he believes progress has "Students painted outside of the building. [That] enabled it to last another 10 years." Robert Peele CLO Alumni Foundation Director of Operations been made. The building meets state fire marshal standards and city regulations, Peele said. In 1959, Peele took 19 credits his first semester at UF because he was worried about running out of money, and he ended up getting his electrical engineering degree in four years. "Being needy, we were kind of looked down on," he said. In the early 1960s, UF maintenance crews helped CLO residents with building repairs, said Peele, who was the CLO vice president at the time. "We were just charged the hourly rate," he said. "Students painted outside of the building. [That] enabled it to last another 10 years." Peele said CLO alumni have donated about $15,000 to UF, earmarked for their former home. "They haven't given the CLO a penny of it," he said. Assini said sometimes there might be a weak group of residents who let their responsibilities slip, and noted there is some "weeding out" to be done with current residents. "I think the current group inherited the problems that are there," he said. E UF sophomore Butch Rowley has been with Coach Urban Meyer since his days in Utah.

TUESDAY, APRIL 11, 2006 U ALLIGATOR, 3 Sports facility will have bathrooms, skate park By SHARILYN WISKUP Alligator Contributing Writer Whether students are playing a game of basketball or bathing in the heat of the sun, nature calls at unexpected times. Students who face bladder dilemmas when using the Broward Outdoor Recreation Complex will no longer have to pop a squat at a friend's dorm, hold it in or -even worse -go in the pool. Beginning July, the $720,000 Broward Outdoor Recreation Complex additions, including restrooms, will be accessible to UF students with Gator 1 Cards. Mlichael Powell, superintendent construction manager of BBI Construction, said students will be most excited about the new restroom facility. "They don't have to run across the road to go tinkle," he said. Other new amenities include a gatehouse for sporting equipment, a check-in desk, a concrete surface for skate park users and new landscaping. Powell said construction began two months ago, and the building crew is on schedule. Funding for these improvements came from the Florida Legislature. David Stopka, UF's associate director of recreational sports facilities, said the tennis, basketball and sand volleyball courts, along with the roller hockey rink, skate park and pool, attract UF students looking for some different outdoor entertainment. On Future plans for CapUs the Broward Outdoor Recreation Complex include a fitness center, but it would cost $72 million, which the department of Recreational Sports doesn't have, he said. .For now, he hopes students will enjoy the assortment of activities and sports equipment. Even though Stopka can't control the influx of money, he can control the happiness of 20 members on the UF Skateboarding Club. Bryan Jackson, club president, approached Stopka about reconstructing the skate park. Jackson said that after a year and a half of continuous skateboarding on the asphalt, safety was a risk, and he suggested that concrete replace the existing terrain. "Dr. Stopka felt it was necessary because we are a part of the school, just like any other group of people," Jackson said. "I have so much respect for that." The concrete was poured Friday, and Jackson said it should be dry in a week. Once the old equipment is moved inside the park, it will be available to use. However, the skating ramps and pipes, which will be placed in a new arrangement, will require additional equipment and Student Government funds. Jackson has high hopes for the future of the skate park. Once it looks and works the way he and skateboarding members want, Jackson plans to host skating events and demonstrations performed by well-known skateboarders from across the country. STUDENT LIFE Chocolate, like the force, has its own light and dark side By CASSANDRA BIANCO Alligator Contributing Writer Lifelong dancer and UF junior Rita Larchar said she eats some chocolate at least twice a day and every morning for breakfast. "I always have to eat chocolate, whether it's from cookies, muffins, cakes, brownies or cheesecake," Larchar said. "I just can't go without it." Researchers around the globe continue to tap into the many magical components of chocolate, including antioxidants that may help guard against cancer and heart disease. But as Easter approaches and chocolate bunnies leave the shelves, UF nutritionists point out that there's good and bad in every food. Melanie Brede, a nutritionist at UF's Student Health Care Center, said magnesium is a possibly beneficial ingredient in chocolate because it is important for cells' health. "You can get magnesium in nuts, seeds and dark-green veggies, but people don't get quite as excited about those," Brede said. Linda Bobroff, a UF nutrition professor, said that eating small amounts of dark chocolate is good for antioxidants and plant chemicals that help protect against heart disease, but moderation is key. "We don't want people to think eating a lot of chocolate is a healthy way to approach your diet," Bobroff said. "You can get magnesium in nuts, seeds and dark-green veggies, but people don't get quite as excited about those." Melanie Brede UF nutritionist Antioxidants are seen as beneficial because they help stop the oxidation of lipids, commonly known as fats, which can create cellular damage. Fat in chocolate does not only consist of saturated fats, which are commonly considered bad fats, but unsaturated fats as well. "One of the major challenges in this country today is extreme obesity, and people really cannot afford to be adding an extra 200 to 300 calories a day to their otherwise overly caloric diets," Bobroff said. However, there is no scientific evidence that obese people consume more chocolate than people who are not obese. Both experts agree that darker chocolate is more beneficial than milk chocolate because it has a higher cocoa content and less sugar. There are even some candies on the market that have 60 percent cocoa content. "It helps to reflect that there really aren't any good or bad foods," Brede said. "With anything you can find pros and cons, and trying to get a good variety and balance helps keep you healthy."

Cho promises laughs tonight By SASHA MURADALI Alligator Contributing Writer Though the National Organization for Women has recognized her for making a significant difference promoting equal rights regardless of race, sexual orientation or gender identity, comedian and actress Margaret Cho said she never meant to be a role model. "I just speak my truth," she said in the biography onher Web site. Accent, UF's speakers' bureau, presents Margaret Cho, performing at the Stephen C. O'Connell Center tonight at 8.-Doors open at 7 p.m. The show is free to the public and is a part of Pride Awareness Month, an annual Pride Student Union program. Accent spent $26,200 to bring Cho, including airfare and accommodations. Cho started .performing standup Cho at age 16 in a comedy club, and soon afterward she won first prize in a comedy contest and opened for Jerry Seinfeld, according to her Web site. In 1994, she starred in her own ABC sitcom, called "All-American Girl," according to a press release. "The students should be laughing and should go out with a smile on their faces," said Evan Tyroler, chairman of Accent. Cho is the last Accent show of the year, and Tyroler expects it to draw a great turnout.

TUESDAY, APRIL 11, 2006 E ALLIGATOR, 5 City OKs sports arena COMMISSIONERS SAID A HOTEL BED TAX SHOULD FUND THE ARENA. By DOMINICK TAO Alligator Writer A county hotel-room tax increase should be used to build a new sports arena in East Gainesville, city commissioners said Monday. The extra 1 percent tax increase could generate about $550,000 each year, which Gainesville city commissioners unanimously voted the county should use to fund construction of a basketball and volleyball arena. For Commissioner Ed Braddy, this was his first regular city commission meeting attended after being arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol in January. Braddy was not present for this issue and did not vote. Commissioner Chuck Chestnut was also not in attendance. Alachua County commissioners decided they wanted to raise the hotel bed tax a few weeks ago, and city commissioners decided Monday that the county should use the money to build an arena for amateur sports at the Martin Luther King Jr. Multipurpose Center on Northeast 14th Street. "Research shows sports is one of Gainesville's top tourism markets," said John Pricher, Alachua County's tourism program assistant. "And we're a bit short on lcilities in the area." City commissioners said that the arena would be a good way to attract youth sporting events or the Sunshine State Games to Gainesville, which would boost the city's economy and tourism market. Anid as much as 60 percent of the income generated by the bed tax comes from hotel rooms rented out for UF sporting events and conferences, Pricher said. "Everybody comes to see the university in one way or another," he said. Lack of vacancy in local hotels suggests the same. "Oh yeah -we're already sold out three games into the season," said Jonathan Manzano, a representative from the Holiday Inn Express on Southwest 43rd Street, speaking of the first three football games next Fall. The county asked Gainesville City its cities to submit COMMISS10 project ideas because it wanted to take advantage of a Florida statute that would allow it to raise the current 3 percent bed tax to 4 percent as long as the revenue would be used for a facility that would promote tourism. Despite its approval by the City Commission, Pricher said a new sports arena for Gainesville is still far from a sure thing. He said the selection will ultimately be up to the County Commission. While the city commissioners supported the idea of a new arena in town, they debated on its locations. The two locations in mind were the Martin Luther King Jr. Multipurpose Center and Depot Park, which is closer to downtown. Ultimately, the Multipurpose Center won out. Local gas to reach $3 By PANAGIOTA PAPAKOS Alligator Contributing Writer The price of a gallon of regular gasoline in Gainesville is expected to hit the $3 mark by summer, while the average price for the state of Florida has already climbed 45 cents from this time last year. "Everybody knows the prices are going up," said Sam Barikh, manager of the BP gas station on Southwest Archer Road. Barikh and other managers around town predict the price to rise because of the increasing cost of doing business, in addition to the usual summer increase in demand. Good weather and vacations-increase the demand for gas in the summer by about 5 percent compared to the rest of the year, according to the Energy Information Administration. Distribution, marketing and retail dealer costs and profits combined make up 12 percent of the cost of a gallon of gasoline, while federal, state and local taxes account for about 23 percent, according to the administration. Since the start of 2005, gas prices have been on the rise, climbing as high as $3.07 a gallon on Sept. 5, when the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina dramatically reduced supply. In an unusual move, President Bush announced in his 2006 State of the Union address that America is addicted to oil and promised to make a new kind of ethanol within six years. UP economics professor Dave Denslow said the fundamental causes for the recent increase are higher oil prices and growing demand. He said other countries, like France, are attempting to cut their demand through new regulations. "Everybody knows the prices are going up." Sam Barikh BP gas station manager "We could be doing more to reduce the demand for gasoline," he said. "But I don't see that policy changing anytime soon." Denslow added that when gas prices go up, people are less likely to spend money on other goods and are less likely to purchase larger vehicles. Nationally, the average price for gasoline in 2005 was $2.27, but now the average has hit $2.67, according to the American Automobile Association daily fuel gauge report. Some Extra Cash?

6, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, APRIL 11, 2006 Editorial Giving in French government bows to ignorant rioters Sometimes, standing up for what is right just isn't worth it. Or so French President Jacques Chirac would have us all believe. Yesterday, Chirac capitulated to the hordes of violent protesters rallying against a controversial new employment law. The First Job Contract law would have allowed employers to fire workers under the age of 26 for any reason -or no reason -during their first two years of employment. If you think that the law sounds discriminatory and that the protesters just might be right, hold on a second. France's labor market remains massively overregulated. In particular, French labor law makes it extraordinarily difficult for employers to fire their workers. But while that sounds like great news for employees, it's taking its toll on poor French youths looking forjobs. If employers can't fire new employees, they'll be much more selective in the workers that they hire. That manifests itself in abnormally high unemployment rates for French youths -more than 20 percent for 18to 25-year-olds. It also means that employers don't have the same economic deterrents to avoid discriminatory hiring policies. That might explain why some poor immigrant neighborhoods have unemployment rates of around 40 percent. But the First Job Contract law would have changed all that. Employers wouldn't have been locked into their hires, as they are now. Knowing that they would retain the ability to fire employees later on, employers could stand to be more trusting of young workers at the outset. As a result, youth employment would have skyrocketed. But French labor unions weren't having it. They claimed that the law was discriminatory and an infringement of workers'.rights. Of course, those same labor unions also had the most to gain with the repeal of the law, because unions only represent people who are already employed. By encouraging employers to hire more young people, the law would have increased competition between older workers and newer ones, probably driving union wages down. But no matter. French youths -who have repeatedly demonstrated their proclivity for rioting -took to the streets, eschewing higher employment and basic economics in favor of smoldering cars, broken store windows and chaos in general. As the riots progressed, the protesters took control of the country. And yesterday, the French government found itself surrendering to an occupying force once again. We can't say we're surprised, but we are disappointed. The move was largely an attempt by Chirac to save face, as his popularity has plummeted the past few months. But it has crushed the presidential hopes of French Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin, who originally proposed the First job Contract legislation specifically in response to last year's violent riots. Yesterday, de Villepin, who has steadfastly maintained throughout the ordeal that the French government wouldn't back down, found himself backpedaling, saying he only wanted "better balance .between more flexibility for the employer and more security for workers. .This was not understood by everyone, I'm sorry to say" It is a brutal irony that a man so concerned with improving the plight of the French people would now find himself so vilified by those he sought to help. We hope we haven't seen the last of the First Job Contract law. But then again, if the protesters are so ardent in their support of high unemployment, maybe French government officials should just let them have it. 0 1eindependent flida alligator Emily Yehle EDITOR Bridget Carey MANAGING EDITOR Tom Durrenberger OPINIONS EDITOR The Aligator encourages comments from readers.

I've interrupted tonight's broadcast of "The Amazing Race," which I assume is a documentary on the Chinese, to make a special announcement. Three years ago, someone in my administration revealed the identity of Valerie Plame -an undercover CIA agent -to the press. As it turns out, that's illegal. I swore then and there to find the guilty party. "If there's a leak out of my administration," I said, "I want to know who it is." Of course, the culprit turned out to be Karl Rove, my top political adviser. So I let it drop. Karl said that would be best. Since then, we've had more leaks than a New Orleans levee. My domestic spying program -leaked. My secret CIA prisons -'leaked. That weird dream I had about Condoleezza Rice -whoops, Freudian slip. Forget I said that. Anyway, Karl says we can really go after the leakers this time. After all, those National Security Agency wiretaps were classified, even if they were illegal. More importantly, I looked pretty bad when the story broke in The New York Times. And when I look bad, the terrorists win. That's why I told the FBI to shake down a few reporters. If they won't reveal their source, maybe a couple of weeks in jail will change their tune. And when we do find the whistleblower, Mr. Goody Two-Shoes has a date with Dick Cheney, a beer and a shotgun. Now, if you're anything like me, you're probably saying, "I hate those dirty, al-Qaida-loving whistleblowers too, Mr. President.

TUESDAY, APRIL 11, 2006 U ALLIGATOR, 7 Guest columns Reasons for immigration more complex than opponents let on T his is in response to the letter written by Justin Brand in Monday's Letters to the Editor. Not only did Brand write a ridiculously inane argument in support of harsher immigration legislation in his letter Monday, he also failed to rebut any of Adrianna Sanchez's valid arguments on the matter. There are numerous social and economic reasons for emigrating from one's native country to the U.S. Many people are indeed forced to come to the U.S. in search of work. Frequently, immigrants mail money generated from their U.S. incomes home to support families that still live in their native countries. If they could easily find jobs at home, they would not risk their lives and spend unmentionable amounts of money to immigrate here. In addition, they know they Letters to the Editor have no rights as illegals, yet they are still determined to make it, which indicates that there is something in the U.S. that makes their efforts extremely worthwhile. If you're having a hard time imagining why one would want to come here so badly, try imagining this: You're a woman who works more than 12 hours a day, six or seven days a week, in a factory that forces you to take birth control pills but tells you that they're pills to fight infection. If you don't take them and get pregnant, they'll either force you to get an abortion or fire you. You can't get fired because you have other children to feed. Your older children, one of them 10, are working right beside you in the same NAFTA-produced factory day in and day out and cannot attend school because they want to eat. Now how do you feel Lisa Gill about immigration? Speaking Out This was a real situation for some Mexican women. There are plenty of jobs in the U.S. that only illegal immigrants will accept, and agricultural jobs are a prime example. I have volunteered teaching Spanish to a blueberry farm owner and his staff on Waldo Road. They have thousands of workers each harvest season, very few of which, if any, are nonimmigrants. I once picked blueberries with the workers and didn't make it any longer than an hour and a half. I had picked less than one full bucket of blueberries, my back was burning, and I would have only made a grand total of $8 for my labor. You enjoy cheap produce at local grocery stores because of these workers; if we hired American citizens to do this same work, they would demand much higher wages, and produce prices would skyrocket. In direct response to the ridiculous concept of wall building, it is urgent people understand that Mexico is not the only source of immigration into the U.S. Erecting a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border is basically a form of discrimination against Mexicans. If we are looking to control immigration in this absurd manner, we must be consistent in our measures and erect a wall around our entire nation. Is this not just as absurd as erecting a wall only between the U.S. and Mexico? Perhaps one should consider reading about the realities of immigration before making completely unsubstantiated claims about getting "our facts straight." Lisa Gill is a journalism junior.

Herring said some UF undergraduates have younger siblings who are better students than they are, but who were rejected this Spring. Left behind High selectivity bodes well for UF's incoming student body, but it has left some petulant parents behind. On parents, Herring said: "The level of involvement is much more intense than it historically has been." Rejected applicants may appeal their admission, but those who apply for an appeal receive a letter that states: "Only applicants with truly compelling personal circumstances are encouraged to appeal." Political science professor Albert Matheny serves on the committee that judges these appeals. He sald there were twice as many this year as there were in 2005. Last week, Matheny's committee reviewed 200 appeals in about six hours, he said. Number of freshman admitted Yield rate X factor Matheny said a strong appeal letter may project a niche for the student in a UF program. Or it may detail an extraordinary circumstance that the applicant had to overcome, such as severe poverty or disease. Matheny receives many e-mails from parents, and not all are as cordial as the rest. "Occasionally you'll get some that'll say, 'I went there in the '70s and I've always told my kids that they were going to get in, and I don't see why you won't let them in,"' he said. Though the official statistics have not been produced yet, Matheny said the average student admitted to UF this semester has a 4.0 GPA and a 1300 SAT score.

As a result, donnitories were crowded, and lecture halls were stuffed. Officials use the previous year's yield rate to gauge the next year's, but they can only guess. "What you're trying to do is predict what 10,400 17-year-olds are going to do," Herring said. And there is often an "X factor," like last year's hurricanes.

TUESDAY, APRIL 11, 2006 E ALLIGATOR, 9 Committee approves removal of library breezeway 0 COMMITTEE MEMBERS CALLED THE STRUCTURE USELESS AND UNATTRACTIVE. By LYNDSEY LEWIS Alligator Staff Writer Ilewis@alligator.org As UF works to complete the renovation of its flagship library, university officials decided Wednesday afternoon that Library West's surrounding landscape needs a little improvement, as well. Just one month before the library is scheduled to reopen, the Preservation of Historic Buildings and Sites Committee approved the removal of the breezeway that connects the buildig to Library East Tq~t r"Suft %)Duk Committee members cited the structure, often called a portico, as an unattractive and almost useless feature. "It's pretty ugly," said Roy Graham, an architecture professor and one of the dozen or so officials who attended the meeting. Other committee members pointed out that the portico proves beneficial on rainy days. "The Krishna people find it very A H convenient, when the weather is indminist-afn clement, to sequester themselves [under the portico], as do the Krishnas' food-eaters," committee chairman John Ingram said. Still, committee members were ultimately persuaded to remove the structure for the sake of aesthetic value. "You know, next year, instead of having students tear down the wall of hate, maybe they should tear down the portico of hate," joked committee member James Cusick, referencing UF's annual Writing on the Wall project. Committee members also approved other changes to the campus landscape, including the upcoming construction of the George Steinbrenner Band Building. Steinbrenner owns the New York Yankees. The facility, due to be completed by June 2007, will cost about $6 millon to build -about $3 million more than initially anticipated. "Dr. Machen was kind enough to give us $3 million, but that still leaves us $1 million short," project manager Cydney McGlothlin told committee members. McGlothlin said during an interview that the College of Fine Arts, which oversees the building's construction, will be responsible for raising additional funding. A 01,4f& r( ~,~ f.f ?9?

Abbey Road date auction to help Lymphoma cause Bidding scheduled for tonight at 10 By SARAH LEVY Alligator Contributing Writer The Lymphoma Awareness Committee is lending a hand to lonely Gators with their first annual date auction at 10 p.m. Tuesday at Abbey Road. The date auction will not only help students' social lives, but it will also raise money for the Lymphoma Research Foundation, a charity devoted to funding lymphoma cancer research and providing patients and health care profes-, sionals with critical information on the disease. There will be a $5 entry fee to get into the event. Thirty dates will be auctioned off to help raise money for the charity. Many members of UF's fraternities and sororities will be participating, as well as some UF athletes. "A few UF football players are going to be auctioned off," said Jared Kleinman, president of the Lymphoma Awareness Committee. "There's also going to be a model, an Olympic swimmer and other UF athletes. We're having a great turnout." Kleinman founded the committee last year in honor of his grandfather and mother, who both died from cancer. "I wanted to do something as a tribute for them," Kleinman said. The committee hopes to raise between $4,000 to $5,000 from the date auction. "I'm really excited to be auctioned off." Kathryn Fitzgerald UF sophomore Many local restaurants are sponsoring the event with gift certificates for the participants' dates. Bennigan's, Dragonfly Sushi & Sake Company, Olive Garden, The Swamp and other restaurants have all contributed. "Although most of the people participating do not need help finding a date, they are happy to help out and raise money for the foundation," said Ben Krinsky, the Lymphoma Awareness Committee treasurer. "I'm really excited to be auctioned off," said Kathryn Fitzgerald, a nutrition sophomore who is participating in the event. "I think it wil be a lot of fun and it's for a really good cause."

CAPPING OF AN ERA Graduates reflect on four years at UF By MARIA LAVERGHETTA Alligator Writer As her parents drove away from Fletcher Hall, Yanique Mitchell started to get scared. "It was my first time being away from home," she said. "I was in the car. We were driving. I realized they were going to drop me off and not going to come back." Mitchell, who moved with her entire family from Jamaica to Miami, said the five hour drive home to her family was too much. Her seven uncles, three aunts and countless cousins who were within walking distance her entire life added to the heartache she felt during her first week atUF, she said. In addition, her best friend since elementary school and roommate hadn't arrived yet and wouldn't arrive for another week. "I kept calling my mom because I felt lonely," she said. Even the campus map looked threatening, but at the same time, it was all so exciting and freeing, she said. Like Mitchell, thousands of students share in their humble beginnings at college, where the itch for freedom and the sting of homesickness collide. Then, before they know it, it's four years later. They're graduating. Denise Cuevas, a graduating interior design senior, is torn on whether she's looking forward to graduating, she said. She's excited because she gets to embark on new adventures, but she also said she's not excited because it is nerve-racking. Remembering the past helps though, she said. The past four years at UF brought new presidents, new coaches and new trends. The addition of Bernie Machen as UF's president spurred new developments across campus like wild fire. On Jan. 5, 2004, the tentative new president, former president of the University of Utah, strived to push UF into becoming one of the best schools in the nation with full force. Cuevas said she felt it was a good idea to hire Machen because she thinks he has done good things for the school. Eugenia Izmaylova, a graduating senior finance student, said that Charles Young, the former UF president before Machen, was a great leader, but it was just his time to leave. "He was just getting old and didn't have the energy," she said. She was glad when Machen came into office because it sparked change at UF, Izmaylova said. Once Machen took his position, the fight for building a better UF became even more central. The last four years brought significant change to UF. Library West (top left) was closed for renovation, forcing many students to preorder books. UF Athletics Director Jeremy Foley (above right) announced the firing of Football Coach Ron Zook in 2004. Former Utah Coach Urban Meyer (above left) filled his shoes a couple months later. Alligator File Photo Jamal Sowell became the fourth black Student Body president in 2004. After a rocky first few months at UF, the former head coach of the football team, Ron Zook, started appearing under the microscope. On Sep. 16, 2004, a squabble between Phi Kappa Phi and some football players spurred a passionate Zook to interfere. When Zook arrived at the Phi Kappa Phi fraternity house, he saw Jason Bailey, a Phi Kappa Phi brother who allegedly hit football player Steven Rissler the night before. Zook told Bailey, "Oh you're the one who hit Rissler? Oh you're going to get yours," according to police reports. After this information leaked out, UF athletics director Jeremy Foley and UF President Bernie Machen started to pay closer attention to Zook. The water began to boil, and it eventually boiled over. Following a 38-31 loss on Oct. 23, 2004 to then 1-5 Mississippi State, the administration decided to fire Zook just two days after the game but agreed to let him finish out the current season. SEE REVIEW, PAGE 3 Many UF alumni return to Gainesville to start careers ByJACQUELINE DAVISON Alligator Writer jdavison@ alligatonorg Graduates entering the evercompetitive job market should be willing to compromise when looking for jobs in Gainesville, job counselors say "Graduating students can find opportunities in Gainesville," said Nadene Francis, spokeswoman for the Career Resource Center. "The question is, do they want to stay and what are they hoping to do?" Francis said a big factor students should keep in mind is cost ofliving in Gainesville. It's generally cheaper to live here than in Orlando or Jacksonville, for instance. This causes local employers' salaries to be slightly lower. Additionally, students should consider the best starting point for their careers, she said. Dan Furnas graduated Spring 2005 with a degree in East Asian Language and Literature. He stayed in Gainesville because he was not ready to move to the west coast to find work in his field, he said. He had worked as a teaching assistant for AP biology students before enrolling at UF Through friends, he was hired to do quality control testing on food at Elisa Technologies in Gainesville. "I kind of lucked out with what I got. I barely could get any interviews," Furnas' said. "The only other job that gave me any sort of positive response was Books-aMillion." He advises students to look beyond the obvious in their postcollege pursuits there are job possibilities where there is experience. "Don't be afraid to look for a job Don't of wsat yera n.,f Ahacseft is taiing yet rather than ti to Ise ee Dan Eu ur grad outside of what your degree is in.

Now, she's been in her position for six years and notes the difference in lifestyle since becoming a professional -such as not beginning to party on Thursday night.

CAPPING OFF AN ERA 'Boomerang generation' finds it hard to leave home By DREW HARWELL Alligator Contributing Writer Sociologists call them the "boomerang generation." Defractors call them freeloaders, slackers or "kidults," a cross between kids and adults. Embittered parents call them kippers: Kids Into Parents' Pockets Eroding Retirement Savings. And when you graduate, you just might be one of them. Julia Proby, 23, graduated with a bachelor's degree in business administration in 2005 from UF's Warrington College of Business. After graduation she lived with her parents for six months, researching 4 to 6 hours a day for open positions in the field of Meeting and Event Planning. Without a job or a sufficient financial base, she decided to move in with her parents so she could begin to save money for when she did move out. "There really weren't any other options for me," she said. Proby believes it's "common" and even "imperative" that recent college graduates stay with their parents until "they are employed and financially stable enough to pay for their lives on their own." She looked forward to moving out and being on her own, but thinks that "living independently after school is unfathomable." Proby's not alone. In fact, she's part of the "boomerang generation," the more than 18 million Americans between the ages of 18 and 34 living in their parents' homes or in parent-supported college dorms. According to the U.S Census Bureau, 56.5 percent of men and 46.5 percent of women between 18 and 24-14.3 millionAmericans in total -were living at home in 2004. According to the MonsterTRAK College Graduation Survey, 60 percent of 2005 college students planned to move home after graduation, a 3 percent increase from the previous year. This plan has altered the traditional roles ofparents and children and provoked an image of immaturity for the "kidults" of the boomerang generation. Jeanna Mastrodicasa, associate director of the UF Honors Program and city commissioner-elect, said that students didn't go back home in her parents' generation. The trend of graduates "boomeranging" back into their parents' homes -and, typically, bankrolls -is due to the "extremely hands-on" nature of parents and the lack of initiative in their children. Many students today, she said, have never held a job and spend too little time reflecting and making their own decisions to break free from the nest. Parents, too, are "very welcoming and totally fine" with their children moving back, providing a' "comfort zone" that can coddle the child at an age when previous generations were asserting their adulthood, she said. Ta aar' /5ide Julia P UF gra Albert R. Matheny, director of the Academic Advising Center wrote in an e-mail that he believes "everyone is trying to be a 'kid' these days," and marketers reinforce our feeling young, or even childish, by taking away the stigma of living at home. "In fact, it's a sign of perpetual youth," he wrote. The previous generations' parent-child separation process has been rejected by many parents who can't let their kids develop a sense of individuality. "The worldis not safe enough to tdlerate raising a child who is independent," Matheny wrote. This leads to the development of "helicopter parents," who hover over their children's lives, and "lawnmower parents," who cut down anything negative in their child's way, he said. Matheny said he has talked to both types more and more each year since he began working at UF in 1998. For UF student Ashleigh Schmidt, 22, the move back in with her parents was about finances. Schmidt has lived with her parents for eight months while she works as an unpaid intern and completes her degree. "Living with parents is a safe place to be while you're job hunting," she said. Like Proby, she decided to move back in with her parents when she realized she didn't have the money to move out on her own.' She knows of stu, dents like her who haven't been able to secure a job right after college, haven't had enough money saved or have been too sunk in rio KenZMYO credit card debt to find a place to live away from their family. roby Statistics support the duate notion that students are not yet financially independent. The Center for Economic and Policy Research reported in 2004 that the rate of student loan debt is 85 percent higher among recent graduates than it was 10 years ago, with the average senior graduating with student loans of $17,600. Proby admits to "some disagreements" with her parents over details like curfews, but for the most part her friends and family were congratulatory toward her graduation and supportive of her future, allowing her "all the time and space I-needed to land the exactjob I was looking for." Both Proby and Schmidt said their parents were excited for their daughters to return home, but some parents have expressed impatience at their children's dependence. In research for the Canadian Journal of Sociology, 67.3 percent ofparents reported that they "sometimes felt that their returnee was taking advantage of them." Some might point a finger at the job market, which has proved to be confounding to some and may have contributed to the boomerangers' plight. Entry-level and low-wage positions have not synchronized their pay with inflation in recent years. However, workers in UF's Counseling center have met many students who are too afraid to even look for jobs, some even delaying their graduation so they don't have to actually join the "real world" ofjobs, independence and self-sufficiency. 'The boomerang generation seems to be less of a Western phenomenon and more of a global problem. Research from the Prudential in London reported that, in England, 6.8 million adults over the age of 18 live with their parents. Japanese psychologist Saito Tamaki estimates that around 1 million Japanese, or 1 percent of the population, are "hikikomori" -shutins, typically twenty-something males, who live in their parents' homes without jobs or schooling from anywhere between six months to 15 years. Recently, a 30-yearold Italian bachelor successfully sued his parents when they tried to persuade him to leave the nest. The trend is even manifesting itself through film and television. The romantic comedy "Failure to Launch" shows parents who hire a dream woman to entice their 35-year-old son, played by Matthew McConaughey, out of their house. Meanwhile, the new FOX sitcom "Free Ride" follows college graduate Nate Stahlings as he lives up to his surname by moving back in with his parents. The stories are fictional but not too different from the millions of graduates in similar situations. Still, Proby sees nothing wrong with the situation. "I would in no way say I failed at launching thy career or have taken advantage of a free ride from my parents," she said. .F-u Barbers M.nday thru Friday ?1Ampl FEE porkilg 9to 6pmo 714 W.U,1-1y A+1 -d1 summer IBCHEAP R/T AIRFARE GOOD VIBRATIONS 0 /'l a> HOSTEL HOOKUP BEDS WITH BENEFITS "Heas!

Graduation spans four days By LINDSEY FRANCO Alligator Writer Ifranco@alligator.org Thousands of students clad in caps and gowns will cross the stage; of the Stephen C. O'Connell Center, the Phillips Center for Performing Arts, the Health Professions Nursing Pavilion Auditorium or University Auditorium between the morning of May 4 and the afternoon of May 7. .But before these Gators crawl out of the Swamp on Graduation Day -or, in UF's case, days -they should know the basics. Commencement locations will be determined by the size of each college, and each college will conduct its own graduation ceremony during the four-day stretch. For the 2004 commencement, UF brought together every college on the Reitz Union North Lawn for a fireworks display and a speaker, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz. But this year, UF has no plans to invite a speaker. Larger colleges, such as the College of Engineering, will hold -graduation in the O'Connell Center, and smaller colleges, such as Fine Arts, will pack into University Auditorium. Seating is open at the O'Connell Center, but students will be provided with tickets for guests. Rick Ragan, assistant university registrar, said for every student graduating, UF plans to accommodate six or seven guests. "It could get a little cozy in the O'Connell Center, but you know, they always find a place for them," he said. Graduation seats remain ample, but hotel accommodations are not so abundant. Hotels across Gainesville are already packed. Holiday Inn University Center has been booked for six months, said Ron Homestead, a manager. He said the Holiday Inn's prime location, at West University Avenue and 13th Street, causes a crunch during graduation and football season. On the other side of town, hotels and motels lining Interstate 75 are full. Cabot Lodge off Archer Road is booked for graduation but plans for cancellations the week before, said front desk clerk Karlan Jankowski. Ironically, students will leave graduation empty-handed -diplomas will be mailed in mid-July. Casey Anderson / Alligator Stair Students from smaller colleges, like the College of Fine Arts, will graduate in the University Auditorium (above) between May 4 and May 7. Library West closes, Zook leaves REVIEW, FROM PAGE 1 Chris Cook, a graduating physics senior, will attend graduate school at the University ofIllinois, where Zook is now the head coach. He said Zook should have tried to let the players handle the fight-with Pi Kappa Phi themselves. "I know that it had to do with the team, but I don't think it was his role to get that involved," t Cook said. Even though A l Cook said Zook being as "sucks," he doesn't Jef ts mind watching Zook tst knn coach at Illinois because Zook is a t) sl "character." Eugenia I "Illinois sucks graduatir anyway," he said. "He kind of adds to the joke." After Zook's two stormy years, rumors buzzed about Steve Spurrier returning as head coach. Instead, the former coach of Utah took the public's eye. In a public tug-of-war with Notre Dame, Urban Meyer finally made his home as UF's 21st head coach on Dec. 6, 2004. Alok Beecum, a graduating chemistry student, said what Meyer did with Chris Leak and what he has shown everyone through the new recruiting class is phenomenal. "Good leadership and a strong command -that's what I like about Urban Meyer," Beecum said. After Urban Meyer, the fight against alc-ohol took over. Alcohol policies drove students to put down beer and pick up textbooks. New rules for on-campus drinking, tailgating and drinking inside the stadium brought heated debates from students, alumni and faculty. bIes' thiat Nave wftlh sntnot slcsih-L it win whets zmaylova ng senior Izmaylova said Machen's whole campaign against alcohol is pointless. "The problem that students have with alcohol is not not being aware of the effects of alcohol," she said. "It is not knowing when to stop." The re-opening of Library West in the Fall is a big downer for seniors. Liz Prann, a graduatingjournalism major, said she wished she could have used it. "From what I know, it is going to be a pretty unbelievable facility," Prann said. After four years of school, campus became home for graduating seniors. The distant day of stepping into freedom now takes on new meaning -one that could not have happened without four years of diligent work, said Izmaylova. "I couldn't have asked for anything else," Izmaylova said.

CAPPING OFF AN ERA Graduates delay careers to work for the public good By EMILY YEHLE Alligator Staff Writer eyclic@alligator.com For Meghan McManus, summer vacation means living in a chicken coup. She sleeps on an old, hard bunk bed on a cold cement floor. A tin roof protects her from the rain, while a chain-link fence keeps out wandering pigs and roosters. A piece of blue tarp wrapped around the fence guards against malariacarrying mosquitoes. During the day, McManus volunteers at Home for the Hope of a Child, an orphanage on the coast of the Dominican Republic. She plays games with the children, teaches them English and eats simple Dominican dishes of rice, beans and meat. The UF marketing senior feels right at home. "I get the best sleep ever," she said, quickly adding: "I know it sounds weird." Keeley McCarty, a Japanese studies senior, applied to the Japan Exchange Teaching Programme in an effort to get practical experience. And yet her comfort isn't out of the ordinary. UF career counselors and community service officials have noticed a surge of student goodwill since Sept. 11, 2001, and although the number of those wanting to help peaked years ago, the event has had a lasting effect. Not only are many graduating students eager to make a difference, they are worried about their lack of "real world" skills in what they perceive as a competitive job market. Although UF has no statistics on the issue, many university officials agree on the result: Fewer students are starting traditional careers and more are searching for paid positions that broaden their horizons. This summer, McManus might not return to the Dominican orphanage, but she will move to Charlotte, N.C. to work with impoverished children. She will be one of thousands working for Teach for America, a nonprofit organization that hires highachieving college graduates to teach in failing schools. McManus had offers for marketing positions, but she knew that accepting them wouldn't fulfill her goals. "When else am I going to have the opportunity to go off and give back to my country?" McManus said. "I want to give back to the country that's given me everything." Teach for America is highly successful at recruiting overachievers to do low-paying, hard work. About 17,000 applied for a position last year; fewer than 20 percent were accepted. And so far this year, more UF students were accepted than from any other Florida university Collette Taylor has helped UF students get involved in community service for nine years. Now associate director for the Center of Leadership and Service, Taylor said three or four students a week ask about Teach for America. She attributes the program's success to a focused mission that clearly explains how participants will make a difference. Her office has begun to use the same tactics. "People are finding out that they can make a difference by not necessarily becoming a doctor right away," she said. McManus has also noticed that many of her friends are interested in finding a structured place beyond college. "It's a trend, that's for sure," she said. 'A lot of people don't know what they want to do. Why not put yourself in the halfway real world?" Farouk Dey, UF associate director for career development, said he's noticed a lower turnout for job fairs and a higher interest in graduate school in the past few years -indications that students are looking for ways to continue their education. He attributes this to low confidence among students, who worry that their education doesn't prepare them for the "real world." "Even when they hear good news, I think students -and partially parents -buy into the idea that they're not going to be successful at getting ajob," he said. This attitude is typical of the current generation of students, a group college counselors have, dubbed the "millennial generation." These children of baby boomers grew up in an environment of positive feedback, of the view that everyone is unique and everyone can succeed. As a result, Dey said, students are less apt to take risks and must secure their success before they pounce on opportunity. Keeley McCarty can't imagine beginning a career when she graduates from UF in May Although she will then have a degree in Japanese, she's not convinced that she can speak the language fluently. "I don't feel proficient enough in Japanese to do anything with it," she said. "I feel like a Japanese degree is so useless." Teach for America: www.teachforamerica.com The Japan Exchange Teaching Programme: www.jetprogramme.org Peace Corps: www.peacecorps.gov So instead of looking for a traditional job in the United States, she applied to the Japan Exchange Teaching Programme, where graduates are placed in Japanese schools to teach English for one year. And because she's a pre-med student, she also applied to eight medical schools. She hopes that pursuing either will teach her the practical skills she needs to get ajob she wants. "If I don't get into medical school or the JET Programme, then I might find a tall building," she joked when she first applied. Students who don't have much hands-on experience have the lowest confidence in their ability to get a job, Dey said. Programs like Teach for America, JET and the Peace corps fill that gap by offering that missing experience in the form of a structured program. This mix of new experiences and guaranteed safety nets appeals to McCarty. 'You don't have to go there and be confused," she said. "They tell you what to do." In the end, she was put on the waiting list for one medical school and accepted into the JET Programme. She hasn't yet decided where she'll end up. But a traditional job seems unlikely She can think of only one friend who immediately found a job after graduation. After graduation, many are looking for a compromise between college dependence and an independent career, McCarty said. "It's a middle ground -a purgatorybetween college and the real world," she said. et Rescue Projeca of Alachua County presents 6 convenient locations, 10 hours and 200 pets for you to love www.MaddiesPetRescueOfAlarhua.urg STUDY ABROAD IN PARIS: YES YOU CAN!

The Gainesville Experience By KYLIE CRAIG The end ofthe schoolyard is upon us -the timefor al the sooin-to-be graduates to make the most oftheir lastfew weeks in Gainesville. To help, here #s a lAst ofthetop 10 things to do before leaping town. 4 Orange & Brew The Orange & Brew may not be the No. 1 hot spot for drinking, but how can you pass it up? Other than sneaking a flask into a football game, this is really your only chance to drink on campus. And drinking here won't get you into trouble. With a wide range of available beers and late hours (it's open until 1 a.m. on Fridays), it's one place on campus you shouldn't pass up. Lake Wauburg Lake Wauburg offers UF students fun -for free. Just bring your Gator 1 Card to Wauburg, and you and your friends can go fishing, canoeing, kayaking, sailing and swimming. It's the ultimate Gainesville outdoor experience and because it's free, there's no reason to pass it up. Head down Southwest 13th Street toward Micanopy and you'll see the sign for the lake. 9 Become a Globetrotter Salty Dog Saloon on West University Avenue offers one of the best bar experiences in Gaioesville, and becoming a Globetrotter is something you shouldn't miss. To become a Globetrotter you have to drink one beer from each country listed on the beer menu in 60 days -a total of 30 beers. Not -only do you get a free T-shirt, but you also get to drink some good beer in a fun atmosphere. 8 Hare Krishna Lunch It's not just for vegetarians and hippies. Everyone should try the Krishna lunch on the Plaza of the Americas. Not only is the food good, it's cheap -only $3. Krishna Lunch has been served on campus since 1971 and draws hundreds of students each day. Gator Stompin' This graduation tradition is a must-do for graduating seniors. For $25 you spend the night of May 4 cruising restau'asts and barhopping to 32 different locations, including Gator City, Fat Tuesday, Dragonfly and Mellow Mushroom. At each bar you get one alcoholic or nonalcoholic drink, and at each restaurant you get a food item. And there's a free T-shirt. Organizers are expecting more than 1,000 people this yeae so make sure you make this happen. Running of the Bulls Each Fall, the women of the Panhellenic Council hand out bids for their sororities to excited hopefuls on Norman Field. And each year, hundreds of people show up to watch. Why the big turnout? It's pure entertainment. Nowhere else in Gainesville will you hear more screaming, witness more excitement and see more tears all in one place. Whether or not you're a part of the Greek community, sorority bid day, or "the running of the bulls" is something you can't miss. Note: This event takes place in the Fall, so if you're graduating, make it a reason to come back and visit next year. 5 Eat at The Swamp If you didn't dine at The Swamp with your parents during your freshman year, it's something you should probably make happen before you leave town. It's not so much about the food as it is about the environment. So stop by with mom and dad, enjoy a pitcher of beer and some food, and enjoy one of Gainesville's most clich6d dining experiences. 3 Celebrate at Marston Marston Science Librarythe library that isn't. Before leaving, graduates should try to celebrate something (a birthday, good exam grade, graduation, etc.) in the enormous library where no one pays attention to the fact that, yes, this is a library You aren't supposed to answer your phone and talk with "outside" voices. People have already been seen celebrating birthdays there with friends and cupcakes, so you won't be the first obnoxious person to do it. 2 Ginnie Springs Only 13 iniles north of Gainesville, Ginnie Springs is one of the best swimming and diving spots around. There are seven different springs in which to snorkel or dive. It's also fairly cheap: $10 depending on what you want to do. There's also a river to tube down with your friends. This spot will make any hot Gainesville day a lot nicer. Watch the Gators win a NCAA Championship Soon-to-be graduates, you can check this off your list. Thanks to the men of the UF basketball team, we were all here for one of the greatest experiences of our college careers. Aren't you glad you hung around here for your fifth (or sixth) year to see it happen?

CAPPING OFF AN ERA Students grab gowns before their diplomas By CHRISTA WAGERS Alligator Contributing Writer Colleen O'Reilly willjoin her peers inthe College ofJournalism and Communications as they wak across the stage in their black gowns and caps with white tassels for her commencement ceremony on May 6. She will celebrate completing years of study and holding steady through the marathon of her college career. But a couple weeks later, she'll be sitting in class again. O'Reilly opted to walk "out of term" in the Spring, even though she will not complete her classes until June. Summer graduation is on August 12. "I didn't feel like waiting," she said. Walking "out of term" is when a student receives special permission from their adviser or dean to go through commencement but not graduate until later. O'Reilly said she was not graduating with her friends because she didn't take a large enough course load. O'Reilly's move is not unusual, assistant university registrar Rick Ragan said. In an email interview, he wrote that the r(eft Mediterranean Cuisine I N.1f/l)+ tZUU W.

At any university, many more students graduate in the Spring than in the Summer. Ragan said that 7,950 students were eligible for graduation as of April 3, compared to the approximately 3,500 who walk in the summer. Last year, 5,244 regalia packages were rented at the UF Bookstores, said David Moore, customer service director of the bookstore. Moore will not supply the packages to students unless they are graduating or have special permission. This special permission was granted to nearly 40 from the College of Journalism and Communications, said -Jon Roosenraad, assistant dean for student services. Roosenraad said that although not all of the colleges have this policy, most are encouraged by UF to allow students that will be graduating in Summer A to graduate -in Spring. Usually, the other exception is if it is inconvenient for the student to return to the university because of an internship or job. Take a look back at your time as a student as you look forward to becoming an alumnus!

26, ALLIGATOR N TUESDAY, APRIL 11, 2006 TENNIS UF seeks doubles improvement E THE MEN'S TEAM COULD FINNISH UNDEFEATED AT HOME IN THE SEC. By ANTONIO GONZALEZ Alligator writer Capturing at least a share of the Southeastern Conference championship on Sunday didn't excite the No. 3 UF women's tennis team. The Gators are after something else: an NCAA championship. But to be on top of the tennis world, UF coach Roland Thornqvist said the Gators must improve, especially in doubles. "Without a doubt, if you want to win an NCAA title, you have to play good doubles," Thornqvist said. "At times this year, we have been good in doubles, other times we haven't. We have to be more consistent." The Gators (17-1, 10-0 SEC) have lost the doubles point in consecutive matches. Although it was insignificant in both, it has played a major role in past losses. For the last two years, the Gators have been knocked out of the NCAA Tournament with 4-3 losses. In each, the doubles point proved to be the difference. And in the Gators' only defeat this season, a 4-3 loss to North Carolina, doubles play again was responsible. "Without a doubt, if you want to win an NCAA title, you have to play good doubles. At times this year, we have been good in doubles, other times we haven't. We have to be more consistent." Roland Thornqvist UF women's tennis coach "I, just think we're playing on our heels too much [in doubles]," Thornqvist said. "We're just not as aggressive as we can be [in doubles]." On Sunday, Kentucky became the second team this season to sweep the Gators in doubles. Miami was the other team to do so. The doubles loss to the Wildcats snapped a 13-match win streak by the sophomore team of Diana Srebrovic and Lolita Frangulyan. "I thought we regressed in doubles this weekend," Thornqvist said. "But the energy and passion that was missing, I can promise you it will be back." MEN SHOOT FOR PERFECTION: The No. 15 UF men's tennis team will look to go undefeated at home in the SEC for the fourth consecutive season when it hosts South Carolina on Saturday at the Ring Tennis Complex at I p.m. The Gators (13-6, 7-3 SEC) also will look to clinch a first-round bye in the SEC Tournament. "We want to get back in the [SEC] hunt," UF coach Andy Jackson said. "I still feel the talent is he' "We just have to get our confidence back up." UF junior Janne Holmia remains sidelined with a back injury. There is no timetable for his return. Jackson said it is the same injury that caused Holmia to miss most of last season.

TUESDAY, APRIL 11, 2006 U ALLIGATOR, 27 UF MEN'S GOLF Gators tied for 2nd returning from break STAFF REPORT After a three-week break, the No. 3 UF men's golf team came out with clubs blazing. The Gators combined to birdie 35 holes en route to a second-place tie aftertwo rounds of play in the inaugural United States Collegiate Championship on Monday. Senior Matt Every started off strong for the Gators with a 4under-par first round and carded an even-par 140 overall. He is tied for second -after recording 10 birdies. Trailing Every by one stroke is fellow senior Brett Stegmaier, who was also a birdie-making machine, clocking 11. After shooting a 2-over-par 74 in the first round, Stegmaier completed a stellar second round, going 5-under-par at 67 to finish tied for fourth place with a 141. Freshman Billy Horschel, who is tied for 15th place, proved that seniority has nothing to do with making birdies after sinking eight of his own 'between his 1-over-par 73 first round and even-par 72 second ,round. Men's Freshman Toby Ragland could not muster the same momentum as his teammates and bogeyed 10 holes between his two rounds to finish 10-over-par at 154. Senior James Vargas seemed to mix his teammates' performances, bogeying seven holes but birdieing four others to card a 149 (5 over). The Gators resume play today, trailing tournament leader Clemson by one stroke.

"That was the best placement for me as a long snapper. I went to Utah as a long snapper, nothing else, and didn't expect anything from it." Rowley redshirted in 2004 as the Utes broke the BCS code, becoming the first team from a mid-major conference to earn a bid to one of the four BCS bowls and finishing undefeated with a Fiesta Bowl win against Pittsburgh. At the Fiesta Bowl announcement party on Dec. 5, 2004, a day after Meyer accepted the UF job, he had a proposition for his long snapper: join him in Gainesville. "The second that coach asked me if I wanted to come back [to Florida], there was no doubt in my mind that I was going to be a Plorida Gator for the next four years," Rowley said. While sitting out the 2005 season as a transfer, Rowley lived up to the slash moniker. On the scout team, he played a little linebacker, some safety and helped out on special teams. Then a role for him opened as UF's quarterbacks dropped off the depth chart. Dickey moved to receiver in August before leaving the team altogether in January. In December, Portis decided to transfer. Then in the Outback Bowl on Jan. 2, Ingram ended his short-lived "People dream to play for the University of Florida. I'm living that dream right now. Butch Rowley UF long snapper/quarterback quarterback career, switching to tight end. When Tebow enrolled early, Rowley was bumped back down to No. 3 on the depth chart and will serve as the scout team quarterback this season, Mullen said. "Butch still has to learn the offense," Mullen said. "He's going to run the scout team because [incoming freshman Jarred] Fayson is going to play wide receiver [instead of quarterback] for us. He's got to be in a role where he can go in and knows how to hand the ball off, knows how to run some of the plays, knows the cadence, knows how to signal and communicate from the sidelines and be our sideline-coach quarterback." Rowley doesn't expect to see the field on offense this season but would be ready if called upon. Long snapper mightbe a stretch too but he expects to play on special teams. "To even be in this position right now; people dream to play for the University of Plorida," Rowley said. "I'm living that dream right.now."

When you put it all together, the Gators find themselves on the outside looking in just in terms of making their own conference tournament, let alone an NCAA regional. Still, Davis said, the Gators aren't worried. "We're not even halfway through SEC play yet," he said. "A lot can happen. Teams go on stretches where there are winning streaks and losing streaks. So we just can't think about those kind of things yet." Tonight, the Gators will face Bethune-Cookman College (18-20), h it. Matt LaPorta Gators first baseman With former UF pitcher, Alan Home's decision to enter the MLB Draft and the season-ending ingry to left-hander Stephen Locke during the fall, the Gators have struggled all season to find a reliable No. 3 starter. Regardless, Davis said that is no excuse for the rest of the team. "If they give up eight runs, our job is to score nine runs," he said. "If they score no runs, all we have to do is score one run. That is how we have to approach it no matter weho is pitching."

TUESDAY, APRIL 11, 2006 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Departing QBs open door for Utah transfer Rowley E UF'S SCOUT TEAM LEADER FOLLOWED COACH MEYER. By NICK ZACCARDI Alligator Staff Writer nzaccardi@alligator.org You come to practice to watch Chris Leak's improvements or see Tim Tebow throw for the first time in a red, non-contact UF jersey. Then there's No. 16, wearing a regular blue jersey, stepping up after Tebow and Leak make their throws. But there isn't a No. 16 on the roster. No.16 turns around, and you see "ROWLEY" printed on the back of his practice shirt. Anxiously thumbing your handy roster, you come upon No. 45 Butch Rowley. He's a 6-foot-1, 205-pound sophomore formerly of Utah and Orlando First Academy. He's UF coach Urban Meyer's only transfer from Utah. Under the position column reads "LS/QB." The enigma of the Gators' spring roster, Rowley may as well be UF's version of "Slash." But on the field, he gets jokes because he's more like UP's version of Georgia long snapper/quarterback Joe Tereshinski III. "It's a little bit of a mix-up," Rowley said. "I came in as a long snapper, and we had Gavin [Dickey] move, and then they moved [Cornelius Ingram] to receiver and then [Josh] Portis transferred. They needed somebody to step in as a quarterback. Coaches gave me the opportunity." Those coaches, Meyer and offensive coordinator Dan Mullen, first gave Rowley a chance four years ago. With Meyer and Mullen running the show at Bowling Green, Rowley attended a Falcons camp as a junior in high school. A couple of Division I-AA schools offered to sign him as a quarterback, but Rowley wanted to play at a major Division I program. Southeastern Conference schools Alabama and Mississippi offered to bring him in as a long snapper, but so did Meyer and Utah. "I took Utah based on the coaching staff and how I fit in," said Rowley, who walked on with the SEE ROWLEY, PAGE 27 Sophomore third string quarterback Butch Rowley stands on the sideline during the Gators' practice on Monday. Listed as No. 45 on the UF spring roster, Rowley doubles as a long snapper for the Gators. UF looks to shake slump By BRYAN JONES Alligator Writer The Gators were exhausted in more ways than one Monday. After an early-morning arrival from Kentucky prevented many players from a full night's sleep, the Gators (2016, 4-8 Southeastern Conference) find themselves tired of losses that continue to mount. But while the solution to the former is a simple one, the latter continues to puzzle unranked UP. "We're putting ourselves inwinning situations. We're just not getting that key hit," first baseman Matt LaPorta said. "We're working hard to get there, but it is just a process right now." When LaPorta missed 13 games with an injured oblique muscle earlier this season, many attributed UF's struggles to the lack of firepower in the lineup created by LaPorta's absence. But since his return on March17, the Gators have lost 10 of 15 games. Despite LaPorta homering in all three games during the weekend against Kentucky, UP still lost a series to the Wildcats for the first time since 1999. "It didn't really show in the box score, but we played well this weekend," shortstop Adam Davis said. "We bunted the ball well, we executed some SaPorta hit-and-runs, we did some things that we work on hard in practice right and we just didn't get that hit. We needed one more hit, one more pitch, and we just didn't get those opportunities." While the return of LaPorta, last season's national home-run king, should SEE BASEBALL, PAGE 27 UF FOOTBALL Tookes learns from incident E THE WIDE RECEIVER SAID HE WAS TRYING TO PUT THE RIFLE AWAY WHEN IT FIRED. By IAN FISHER Alligator Staff Writer ifisher@a1ligator.org Receiver Kenneth Tookes said he has learned from the off-s'eason incident that changed his life. He accidentally fired a rifle belonging to former UF cornerback Dee Webb into an apartment Feb. 11. No charges were filed. "People are so quick to want to throw away someone's future off a mistake," said Tookes, speaking publicly after Monday's practice for the first time since the incident. "That was my first incident ever since being here. I wasn't playing with the gun. I was trying to put it up, and things went the wrong way." Tookes was not suspended and was never charged, but football coach Urban Meyer and Tookes' teammates have handled the receiver's punisbment internally. Tookes and Meyer wouldn't go into details, but Tookes said the punishment was tough and is still ongoing. He said he feared being kicked off the team. He was trying to quell the situation at Webb's apartment by putting the gun away. Instead, it accidentally went off. "But I just learned that when things happen, just get away from it," Tookes said. "You try to be a hero and do what's good, and it backfires on you." The whole incident was hard for his family, since they had to see his name in newspapers, Tookes said. He said he wasn't doing anything stupid and instead was trying to do the right thing. "It's crazy how big things can get from one little thing," he said. "I learned from it. It's life's lessons. I'll never get in that situation again in my life." THOMAS LIMITED: Defensive tackle Marcus Thomas has been hampered with a hernia injury that could require surgery.
