Census approach in Big Ten towns reviewed city managers, page 1 cause Pell Grant monies could go up,â€? Bobkiewicz said. But universities have yet to find the most effective ways to count their student bodies. Methods change from campus to campus since some universities need to accommodate larger student bodies. Bobkiewicz said the meeting was especially beneficial for cities such as Ann Arbor, Mich., which must count more than 40,000 students at Michigan. NU administrators have talked about placing official census containers around campus where students can drop off their completed forms. â€œOther campuses around the Big Ten didnâ€™t even know those containers existed,â€? Bobkiewicz said. â€œIt was really good to get
that information sharing because every campus is getting a kind of different experience with the Census Bureau.â€? The idea of a campus-wide competition between students to motivate them to fill out the census is still being refined, but no plans can be finalized until NU receives student input, said Lucile Krasnow, special assistant for community relations at NU. â€œI canâ€™t even name (the competition) yet because we want students to designate what would be a great competition or a great prize,â€? Krasnow said. Bobkiewicz said the meeting gave Evanston an opportunity to incorporate new ideas into its census-collecting plans. â€œWe could take the best practices from what other communities are doing,â€? Bobkiewicz said. â€œIt was good from our perspective to hear what other people are doing with the census staff (to count stu-

dents).â€? Campus officials will begin to put their plans into action soon, with the April 1 Census Day approach, Bobkiewicz said. The other city managers could not be reached for comment. â€œEvery community brought different things away from the meeting,â€? Bobkiewicz said. â€œWeâ€™re now going to go back to the census officials weâ€™ve been working with to figure out the best way for us to count students on campus.â€?
daily balance that the citizens have on the street below the structure. â€œIt looks whimsical to me,â€? he said. Cory says he has not heard any complaints about the design since the projectâ€™s installation. â€œCertainly, there are some people who are critical or questioning,â€? he said. â€œBut if you count the number of negative and positive comments, they do balance out.â€? Barbara Goldsmith, co-curator at Noyes Cultural Arts Center, said she likes von der Goltzâ€™s pieces and wishes Evanston had more public artwork. Public input, she says, will make this possible. â€œIf more people are involved in the process of choosing the art, that would really help,â€? she said.
Schapiro visited Qatar last month. â€œI just have tremendous admiration for this incredibly creative idea to create Education City,â€? he said. â€œItâ€™s just mind-boggling, the expanse and just the whole vision of what theyâ€™re doing there.â€? Quarter-long exchanges of students and faculty between the two campuses would be â€œfantastic,â€? Schapiro told THE DAILY on Jan. 15. When formal academic changes eventually take place, the similarity in curricula will allow students from one campus to profitably spend time at the other, said Margolis, who added that NU-Q is on the semester system rather than the quarter system. Richard Roth, senior associate dean of NU-Q Medill, said the journalism classes in Qatar are modeled after those on Evanstonâ€™s campus. â€œItâ€™s really the same curriculum, just packaged differently,â€? he said. Medill senior Elizabeth Weingarten is the second NU student to spend her journalism residency in Qatar. â€œMy first impression is that itâ€™s such a rich culture,â€? said Weingarten, who is currently in Doha. â€œThereâ€™s so many things to explore here.â€? Schapiro said he looks forward to a time when studying in Doha is part of an NU studentâ€™s experience. â€œIt gives us a foothold there in this incredible, interesting part of the world,â€? Schapiro said. â€œBut itâ€™s a startup â€Ś thereâ€™s a lot of work that needs to be done.â€?
New public art represents localsâ€™ daily balance public Art, page 1 falls as residents drive by. The project was completed in mid-December, but a dedication date has not yet been announced. Earlier in 2009, a mural featuring painting and mosaic techniques was installed on Main Street, and the 1993 painting, â€œWall of Struggle and Dreams,â€? was repaired in south Evanston. The next public arts project will be completed in conjunction with the Evanston Public Library. A poetry competition will take place, and the five winning poems will be imprinted on the entrance ramp to the library. All Evanston residents, including students, are invited to submit poetry. The money for the Maple Avenue Ga-
rage project is part of the Capital Improvement Plan budget, Cory said. The Percent for Art program allocates up to 1 percent of the budget for new municipal construction projects of more than $1 million to public art. Money was set aside for public art when the Maple garage was built in 2000, Cory said. The sculptureâ€™s design raised concerns over the summer from residents who thought the design was suggestive of suicide. â€œHaving people raise that point, I can see where theyâ€™re coming from,â€? said Joshua Barney, chair of Evanston Public Art Committee. â€œBut one result of all public art is that it encourages community dialogue and raises a multitude of issues. This piece does that.â€? But the real concept of the piece, Barney said, points to the importance of the
