University Record to publish July 6

The next issue of the University Record will be published July 6. Earlier versions of the schedule listed a July 5 publication date; however, that date is a University holiday in observance of Independence Day. The Record will resume its Monday publication schedule for the final two issues of summer—July 19 and Aug. 16.

Symphony Orchestra honored

The Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Professor of Conducting and Director of Orchestras Kenneth Kiesler, is a recipient of the First Place Award for Programming of Contemporary Music from the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers, and the American Symphony Orchestra League.
The award was presented June 11 at the league’s 59th national conference in Pittsburgh. The Awards for Adventurous Programming recognize American orchestras whose programs demonstrate a strong commitment to the works of contemporary composers.

U-M tops on Fulbright list

Twenty-nine students from the University won Fulbright fellowships in 2003-04—more than any other university in the nation, according to a ranking from the Fulbright Program. Ivy League schools Cornell University and Harvard University each had 25. U-M also had five winners of Fulbright teaching assistantships. The U.S. Congress created the Fulbright Program in 1946, immediately after World War II, to foster mutual understanding among nations through educational and cultural exchanges.

No bus service July 4-5
U-M bus services no longer will be available on the five major holidays—Independence Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas Day, New Year’s Day and Memorial Day. This will include any “observed” days when the holiday falls on a weekend. The Ann Arbor Transportation Authority (AATA) also suspends bus service on the major holidays. As a result, there will be no U-M or AATA bus service July 4 and 5 (the observed day).
