Paul VVillis, libra director,
said that students wil find the
new libra more study-friendly
than M.I. 'ng.

“We did not build a book
warehouse. We’ve built some-
thing that is very patron-
oriented,” he said.

“We are takin most of the
collection from ‘n Libra
except for special co lections,
said Judy Sackett of the library
directors office. “We’re also
movingall of the biological sci-
ences ibrary, the agricultural

The move is expected to take
an estimated four to six weeks.
This giant endeavor is already
beiiwlanned by 12 task forces.

“ e are thinking about how

Bike pat/as

By Chrla Padgett
News Editor

Last fall, UK officials devised
a voluntary bicycle dismount pol—
icy for the campus — meanin

clists were required to get 0
t eir bikes and walk when they
approached Central Campus.

Accordin to universrty offi-
cials, thong , the program was
not much of a success.

The goal of the campaign was
to create ublic awareness among
both cyc mm and pedestrians for
improved understandin between
these two groups w 0 share
crowded campus sidewalks.

But the dismount signs were
stolen and replaced and stolen
a ain, much to the cha 'n of
LgK Police and UK officia s, and
on the whole, the policy was
ignored by cyclists.

With the death of the dis~
mount zone, UK ofiicials then
began another series of town hall
meetings to discuss con soon
on campus sidewalks an try to
form a new plan to deal with the

Local officials are also consid-
ering providing bike lanes around
the city of Lexmgton.

Existing bike racks will be
moved into clusters away from
congested areas to discourage
bike riding on campus.

Unlike the voluntary dis-
mount zones, Vice President for
University Relations Joe Burch
said UK plans to enforce the new
bike ‘plath policy.

nothing is goin r to work unless
we enforce it," urch said.

The chan e in attitudes about
biking over t e past two decades
has led to UK‘s frustrating bicy-
cle overcrowding roblem.

During a bic cl)e safety forum
in April, Burc attributed the
recent demand for a bike safety
policy to dramatic changes in
society and the evolution of
Generation X.

In the late ’605, very few peo~
ple rode bikes to get around cam-

“They were not very fashion-
able, and only a few daring souls
chose to ride," Burch said.

As years passed and the layout
of the campus changed, UK offi-
cials urged incomin freshman to
ride bicycles aroun campus.

“During the early and mid-
‘805 we ushed for more and
more studgnts to come to campus
with their bikes, and as the years
progressed more and more stu-
dents did decide to come to cam-
pus with their bicycle,” Burch

UK‘s endorsement of bikes on
campsis came to a turning point
in l 4, when Charles Haywood,
a facul member, was struck by a
bike asthe was walking to class.

“This was one of the first
major incidents of someone get-
ting struck on campus,” Burch
sai .

tilt, the places you'll live

By Kathy Badlna

Assistant New: Editor

Living in Lexington offers
many housing options, some a
part of the university and others a

little further away. Whatever»

you’re preferences are, some-
thing exists for everyone: resi-
dence halls, apartments, Greek
houses, and, if you’re from here,
even living at home.

Where you live can have an
impact on your college career.
The number of roommates your
have, your amount of personal
space, security, and ultimately,
your budget supply, determine
the success of your housing

Just what is going to suit your
individual needs?

The UK Housing Office rec-
ommends that first-year students
spend a year living in campus res-
idence halls.

“You’re oing to meet a lot
more peopfe and know what’s
going on on campus,” said
Tammy Dishon, housing assign-
ment manger. “Your campus
becomes your world.”

Residence halls offer students
opportunities for involvement in
intramural sports, group activi-
ties, and access to prepared meals
with UK Food Services. Their
locations offer easy walking dis-
tances to classes, and visitation
policies are designed for security.

Julie Anglin, a two-year resi-
dent of Patterson Hall, said the
minimal housekeeping and
already prepared food are advan-
tages of calling a residence hall
your home away from home.

“The main benefit is having
people all around you,” Anglin
said. “It’s like one big family.”

While few students find com-
fort and security living in resi-
dence halls, many others feel the
need for greater privacy and

About 800 UK Greeks reside
in their respective fraternity or
sorority houses. Most offer three
meals a day to house residents,
study rooms and a relaxed visita-
tion policy. Most Greeks cite
reasons of friendship with fellow
chapter members as strong rea—
sons for living in “the house."

Phi Gamma Delta president
Kevin Bradley said living in his
fraternity house adds to the

“It’s only natural that you’re
goin to bond a lot more,”
Bra ey said.

Greek chapters with houses
normally decide who will live
there based on seniority. If a
member holds an office, he or
she is guaranteed a room. Grades
also influence who gets a house

The catch is there are a few peo-

friendships may last a lifetime,

Sorority Membership Recruitment Week,

least very cheap) rent, food in the
refrigerator, and full family sup-

Alison Scowby, a theatre
junior, has spent her college years
in a variety of living arran -
ments. For two years, she live in
residence hall. Scowby spent the
last year living at home and is
planning to rent an apartment or

ouse this year.

“I’d rather live somewhere
else other than home because it is
easier to live on campus or closer
to it,” Scowby said. “My parents
are cool and all, but away from
home I can have parties and be
more a part of campus.”

Scowby ho s to find an
apartment for t e fall that is close
to campus and that is not too
expensive for her budget.

"K 101 introduces campus lite

A college campus can intimi-

Recognizing its own power,
the university be an UK 101
eight years ago to s ow incomin
students what campus life is al

“It (UK 101) covers a wide
range of topics concerning cam—
pus life, which makes it uni ue,”
Assistant Dean of Stu ents
Rebecca Jordan said.

Desi nated a one credit,
pass/fai class, students new to
the university environment are
encouraged to take UK 101 as a
:nfeans of acclimating to college
I e.

The course is divided sections
with 25 students per section.
Each class ically counts as ses-
sion. The lowing are many of
the topics covered In a semester's
worth of sessions:

V Academic advising

V Date rape

V Computer labs

V Academic integrity

M... .n...-.n._._..._,_....,_- . ...


V Appreciating diversity

V Library skills

V Registration/VIP

V Study Habits

Other session focus on study

“It’s ve study skill oriented
toward co lege classes,” Jordan

To staff the 28 sections
offered, the program brings in a
staff members from a myriad of
departments and an upperclass—
man to assist the professor.

“I got along real well with my
co—teacher. Before every class, he
would tell the students about
campus events.” said Joe Fink,
pharmacy professor “He’d tell
them how to get football tickets
and nuts and bolts stuff.“

Fink, in his fourth year of
teaching UK 101, said it brings
him in close contact with first-
time students.

“I wasn't involved the first
years. Then I talked to some fac-
ulty members who said it was a

t program so I decided to try
it,” Fink said.

To better distinguish what

questions freshman need
answered, Fink organized one-
on-one meetings with students.

“I wanted to find out how the
students thought the class had
gone,” Fink said.

The reaction was consistent
from student to student.

“They had uniformly positive
responses. The transition to col-
lege was easier for the students
by getting to know a small group
of people,” Fink told.

Each year several changes to
the curriculum are made. This
year another session on diversity
and a session on electronic acces
information will be added.

“Every year the class chan
to fit changing needs,” Jars:

The program grows every

r. An incoming freshman may
give trouble getting into the
class, but Jorday assured that
spots always open up.

“If a student can’t get in dur-
ing the summer, spots always
open up in the fall before school
starts,” Jordan said.
