has a place
on campus

Tyrone Beason
Editor in Chief





There‘s something big about UK.

Some would say it's the forbod-
ing expanse of the Lexington cam-
pus and the cavernous classrooms
that most freshmen have to endure.

Or it could be the opportunities.

At a university with an enroll-
ment greater than the population of
most cities in Kentucky — 24,000
—- the chances of encountering an
entirely unique individual or situa-
tion are tremendous.

UK doesn‘t stand out only be-
cause of its size. it stands out be-
cause ot' the people who choose to
study and work here —— people who
view the university experience as
more than a four-year means to an
end. but as the last great growth
process before the world at large
comes charging in.

The University itself appears to
be transforming into a garden for
this growth — slowly.

(‘hange is not a painless process.

One of the sore spots is racial di-

In the fall about 1,000 black stu-
dents and about twice as many in-
ternational students will come to
UK. That represents a small portion
of the student body. Yet it is a
source of major conflict at times.

The conflicts do not arise because
the predominantly white student
body expresses hatred or even dis-
like toward others. Likewise, the ra-
cial and ethnic minorities on cam-
pus do not express general hatred
for the white students.

This is not a matter of open con-
flict as much as it is a matter of psy-
chological conflict.

Once students leave the academic
buildings or eating areas they no
longer will be “students" in the
most general sense. They will be
come individuals — individuals
who are defined by every aspect of
their cultural and/or racial makeup.

To see a person in this manner is
to see him or her completely. Often,
the classroom does not allow for
i that kind of recognition.

At some point. however, it must.

UK‘s leadership, if its mission of
integrating the campus and encour-
aging a sense of community is to be
met. should keep in mind that stu-
dents come here with a variety of
social perspectives and assumptions
about others.

Many of these assumptions turn
out to be ill—informed.

And it is a tragedy when a student
spends several years here only to
graduate as narrowly experienced as
when he or she arrived.

Sadly, this happens quite often.

Books contain a wealth of infor-
mation on the whats, hows and
wheres of life.

But the world is not a book.

A university is not sprawling
classroom buildings, lush lawns and
residence halls.




A university is people. and no
form of higher education can be
complete without a greater aware-
ness and appreciation for human
difference. People hate not because
they simply dislike but because they

- There may never be a greater op-
portunity to connect with people
from other backgrounds than the
four (or five, more than likely)
years spent in college.

When you arrive on campus this
summer for the advising conference
and for Fall Orientation at the be-
ginning of semester. take a good
look around.

Perhaps, go to the top floor of
Kirwan or Blanding tower to in-
spect the view of campus and Lex-

Then think about all of the differ-
ent people who will inhabit that

The sprawling UK campus, as viewed from the top of Blanding Tower, might seem imposing, but the University is home to a wide range of social, cultural and
ethnic diversity. This atmosphere challenges students' conceptions and enables most anyone to find his or her niche.

Changes may make
FRC more effective


By Lance Williams
News Editor


In the past few years, UK‘s Stu-
dent Government Association has
had a reputation on czunpus for be-
ing out of touch with the average
student, but this year‘s administra-
tion hopes to bring about a change
that begins With this fall‘s freshman

The first step will be to r'et‘onn
the freshman branch of StiA. 'l'he
Freshmen Representative l‘ouneil.
which includes 25 riiernbers of the
freshman class, has undergone sev-
eral changes for the tall semester.
and SGA leaders say they hope the
revzunping will make I Rt‘ more ef—
fective for freshman on c impus

"We wanted to giy e more .ttitono~
my for the group with Sti.\. and we
wtuited to give them more free—
dorn." said Evan Reynolds. exeeu~
live director of Academic Affairs
for SUA.

"I have talked to past members of
the group. and the biggest coma
plaint I heard was that they felt like
they didn't get to represent every—
one (in the freshnuur classi." SGA






president Lance Dowdy said.

To combat that problem, plans
are being put into place for the
group to hold freshman forums that
will allow FRC to meet with stu-
dents across campus to tind out
what problems freshmen are having
at UK and what can be done to help
solve the problems

"The biggest problem with for-
ums in the past is that it has been
SGA saying, "this is how it is. and
this is what you want.’ " Dowdy

Dowdy said this year‘s SGA will
be a body that helps everyone and
that FRC will let freshmen “have an
ear to hear them."

“We want to hold these forums to
give freshmen a chance to gripe,"
Reynolds said.

See FRC. Page A7





K-Lair, located near Central Campus, is one of several eating establishments currently offered by UK Food Services. A KFC tran-
chise, similar to those found in mall food courts, is coming in the tall. Students can purchase food with their meal cards.

This year‘s Student Center food
will be finger lickin' good.

KFC —fomierly Kentucky Fried
Chicken — will open in the Student
Center next year. bringing Lake
Edna to Lexington and expanding
selections customers can choose

“We certainly hope to have it
ready by the opening of school,"
UK Vice Chancellor of Administra-
tion Jack Blanton said.

UK had hoped to open a KFC in
the 1993 spring semester. but con-
tract details slowed the process. The
project began last fall when Food
Services Director Robert Braun an-
nounced UK‘s intentions.

Blanton said the possibility re-
mains for more outside franchises
to peddle their goods in UK's cen-
tral eating location.

“We've been dealing with three
vendors,“ he said. “There are con-
tracts out for all of them. We are
waiting for them to be returned."

No services will be taken out of
the Student Center's foodlirie to
make room for the franchises, Blan-
ton said.

"We won't be replacing any one
area. What there will be are coun-
ters with the companies logo and
preparation facilities.”

Currently, UK Food Services of-
fer facilities on campus at Blazer

small grocery store: Donovan Hall,
which holds the Oak Room, a buf-
fet-style eatery: K-Lair grill, which
offers fast-food type meals; Kir-

a food court and a grill; and the Stu-
dent Center cafeteria, UK‘s most

Blanton said.

“It will be just like another part of
the food line. Students who have a
meal plan can use their meal cards.
They don‘t have to pay cash."

Prices for the food will be similar
to the prices found at other KFC‘s
around Lexington, Blanton said.

Among other changes in UK food
services for next year, plans are be-
ing made for a new food center on
the mezzanine of Patterson Office

ROBIN JONES/Kernel Grannies
Tower, Blanton said.

The food services at Lexington
Community College will be en-
larged as well.

Blanton said the move to outside
chains comes down to basic market-

“We wanted to add new additions
to the choices and opportunities stu—
dents have in the Student Center.
Hopefully, we are making the meal
plzm more attractive to the student."

Summer advising conferences
give freshmen first dose of UK


By Lance Williams
News Editor


The road to a college degree
takes many hours of hard work.
dedication. discipline and good
planning. The University registrar‘s
office hopes to give students the
sound advice they need to plan for
successful college careers.

That is the reasoning behind the
Summer Advising Conferences.
which begin June 21 and come to a
finish near the end of July.

Students may select either a one-
or thy advising conference.
Both give an overview of services
offered at UK and allow students to

leave the session “with a complete
schedule for the fall," University
Registrar Randall Dahl said.

Students also will have their Di-
nerCards and student ID cards
made during their summer advising

However, if students chose to at-
tend one of the six two-day confer-
ences, they are allowed to spend the
night in a UK residence hall.

Two-day sessions begin June 21
and run for three weeks. One-day
conferences begin the first week of
July. Special days will be set aside
for transfer student advising confer-

The main function of the summer

sessions is to give students a chance
to sign up for classes they will take
during the fall semester. During
their advising conferences, students
wiu meet with advisers from their
respective colleges.

These advisers will help the stu-
dents begin their academic careers
at UK by assisting the students in
selecting the classes they need from
the thousands offered at the Univer-

Also during the advising ses—
sions, students are divided into
small groups to learn more about
the campus through tours and other


Renovations in residence halls funded
by $2.8 million loan from government


By Lance Williams
News Editor


Higher education will be just that
in the 1993-94 academic year be-
cause of increased fees, but students
should see those extra dollars put to
good use around campus.

The UK Board of Trustees voted
to raise University housing rates by
$122 over last year's fees. Included
in that agreement was an increase in
the minimum deposit in the Diner-
Card charge and a 572 increase to
cover higher personnel costs, in-
creased utility costs and higher debt

University apartment fees will in-
crease only slightly from the 1992-
93 rates. The increases range from
$8 a month in the efficiency apart-
ments to $14 a month in the two-

bedroom Greg Page Stadium View
Family Apartments.

To accompany the increased
costs. students will notice an in-
creased focus on campus residence
hall safety and usefulness. Begin-
ning in the fall. Kirwan II will be
known as the Wellness Hall and
will serve residents with special
equipment, programming and in-
struction that allow students to live
in a healthy environment.

During the summer, campus resi-
dence hall electrical cirCUits will be
fixed so that they can handle heavi-
er loads when students anive on

This means that students now
may bring microwaves — legally
—- and use them in their residence
hall rooms. “The policy of not al-
lowing microwaves is going to
evaporate," said Bob Clay, director

of Residence Life.

In addition to being allowed to
bring microwaves, students may be
able to rent combination micro-
wave/refrigerators from UK's Resi-
dence Hall Association.

Other additions include the instal-
lation of security systems in the res-
idence halls.

Haggin and Donovan halls al-
ready have security systems that re-
quire all residents use their meal
cards to gain access to the building.
Clay said the system will be imple-
mented in a few more residence
halls by the end of the summer and
will be in place in every residence
hall by the fall 1994 semester.

Allen Rieman, director of Auxil-
iary Services, said other renova-
tions are under way in residence
halls across campus:

oSecurity cameras will be in-
stalled in Holmes, Patterson and
Jewell halls.

-New roofs will be placed on
Blazer Hall and the Greg Page
apartment complex.

~Repair work will be done on the
elevators in Blazer and Kecneland

-Smoke detectors will be in-
stalled in the low-rises in the Kir-
wan-Blanding Complex.

Most of the renovations are being
funded by a $2.8 million loan from
the US. Department of Education.

Many students visit the Martin Luther King Jr. Cultural Center to study or talk with friends.
The center also sponsors lectures, displays art and holds forums on racial awareness.

King Center, Learning Services
offer support for black students


By Tyrone Beason
Editor in Chief


To remain culturally grounded
is a common challenge that re-
quires uncommon fortitude.

There are no guarantees at a
large. predominantly white uni-
versity that a niche has been
carved for all racial or ethnic

Black students at UK can
boast about such a niche —— al-
beit with some trepidation.

“There’s no doubt that there's
a great deal of work to be done
— work that must be endorsed
by every member of this institu-
tion," said Chester Grundy, di-
rector of the Office of Minority

Still, he said, UK's Martin Lu-
ther King Jr. Cultural Center is a
solid start.

The Cultural Center, located
in 124 Student Center, is at once
a resource facility. an art gal-
lery, a lecture hall and a campus
home base for black students.


The only limits to this black
culture zone are its walls; the cen-
ter is fairly small.

But don’t be fooled by its size,
Grundy said, for the center pro-
vides a wealth of service to the
University. “What we know is
that oftentimes the determining
factors for whether or not Afri-
can-American students are suc-
cessful aren‘t the skills they bring
but a lot of intangible factors. One
very important factor is how hos-
