‘Speoial nerson’
says goodbye to llll

By Chris Easterllng
Sports Editor

When Ron Mercer was deciding which college he
wanted to attend, his goals were to get an education,
to win a national championship and to get to the

He reached his goal of winning a title last April
and he has been continuing his education for the
past year and a half. Yesterday the third goal became
a reality when Mercer officially announced that he
was leaving UK at season’s end.

“Last week was one of the first times that] had an
opportunity to go home and sit down and talk with
my parents, along with Coach (Rick) Pitino, to dis-
cuss my options,” Mercer said. “After the meeting, I
talked with my mom and asked her what I should do.
She asked me what were my goals.

“She told me to take some time out to think about
it and make sure it is what I wanted to do. I’ve
thought about it for the last couple of days. The
more and more I look at it, nowI know what I really
want to do. I plan to make myself eligible for the
NBA draft.”

He thanked his coaches and teammates, whom he
said helped him throughout the season; and he
thanked his arents, on whom he relied during the
decision—making process. Then he thanked the UK

fans for support-
ing him during
his time in

The decision
was of little sur-
prise to most
since Pitino had
mentioned the
on Monday,
prior to the Ten-
nessee game.
Mercer said he
hadn’t quite
made up a plan

et about how he was goin to finish his education,
but he and his mother, Bircfie, were planning on sit-
tin down and workin things out.

Pitino poked a little fun at Mercer’s outfit — a
stylish cream-colored suit — while talking about his
prized sophomore yesterday.

“Judging by the way Ron's dressed, it’s sort of an
indication that he will not be returnin for his junior
year,” Pitino said. “Ron Mercer has fieen someone
special for the last two years and helped us win a
c arlnpionship.

Greek grades
to countless

By Brandy Carter
Sniff H 'riter

Mixed reactions circulate throughout the (ireek
community following a decision to reduce the aca—
demics percentage of the Chapter Achievement

The lntergreek Programming Assembly decid-
ed to cut the percentage from 25 percent to 15

Susan West, Panhellcnic adviser, said the rea-
soning behind the decision was to make the award
more fair to chapters who are not first in grades.

“In the past the chapter with the highest (grade
point average) could win the award without scor-
ing high in other areas,” West said.

However, grades will still be important in the
Greek system, West said.

“Academic achievement will still be recognized
by the Interfraternity Council, the Panhellenic
Council and the Nubian Councd," West said.
“Awards for highest new member GPA, highest
active member GPA and overall chapter achieve-
ment will still be presented.”

IGPA also considered other proposals.

“Other proposals that were voted on by IGPA
were a proposal to make all categories equal (and)
a proposal to leave things the way they were," said
Tony Blanton, IGPA adviser.

The Greek chapter achievement award is given
to one chapter each year based on campus individ-
ual leadership, activities, intramurals, alumni rela—
tions, community service, academics, campus rela-
tions, in-chapter programming and an essay.

Members of the Alpha Delta Pi social sorority
reacted strongly to the decision, since their chap-
ter has won the award for the past six years and has
consistently led social sororities in academics.

“The award should be competitive but not ifit
means lowering academic standards. If it were not
for academics, no sororities or fraternities would
exist,” said IIolly Harris, a member ofAlpha Delta

“Alpha Delta Pi would not be opposed to the
decision if they were counting community service
more, but instead they have decreased it and added
an essay portion and intramurals,” shi said. “In
lowering the academic percentage, the validity of
the chapter achievement award has been compro-

ADPi members think the reason for changing
the percentages for the award was to prevent their

“For the graduate students,
we’re losing our livelihood,” Tay-
lor said.

“(The cuts are) going to limit
graduate students who come in
under that system.”

Most survey classes consist of
two large lectures twice a week
and a small discussion group.
Christianson said each TA over-
sees three sections of a class with
20 students each.

Losing five TA’s, he said,
would leave 300 students looking
for another USP requirement.

While Gallaher said all depart-
ments were given estimates that
signaled a 20 percent across—the-
board cut, Wethington said deci-
sions have yet to be made.

Decisions on which programs
or position are cut for the 1997-98
school year will be made in March,
and Wethingion said the final
budget will submitted to the
board of trustees for approval at its
June 10 meeting.

National Park Service Director
Roger Kennedy told The \Vash-

Railroad provided one of the most
important social humanitarian
movements in history.

“It forged a botid between
diverse people — African Ameri—

Hall said Cohen is exctted to be

body on the subject.
