Celebrating 32 years of independence

UK steps up efforts
to keep new students

Nevr pledge Amanda Jarley accepts her bid to join Sigma Kappa sorority. UK officials encourage events like rush and student activities
recruitment as a way to keep incoming freshman enrolled at UK.

Students volunteer, socialize at activities that increase retention rates

By Keren Henderson

Katie Twist spent one of her first
days as a UK freshman scraping
white paint off the old brick walls at
the downtown Lexington Children’s

“I'm having a great time and I‘ve
met a lot of people,” said the biology
major, straining to reach the top

The work, while tedious, will help
keep her at UK, administrators say.

Twist's labor was part of Ken-
tucky Welcome, this week‘s sessions,

events and parties designed to help
new students make the transition
into college life.

Administrators said they hope
that a strong first impression will in-
crease retention rates, which are the
percentage of freshmen who stay at
UK after their first year.

Improving retention numbers is
one of administrators' main objec-
tives. They said students who spend
more time socially engaged at their
university are more likely to want to

Members of Greek organizations
are more likely than their non-Greek

peers to return for a second year of
college, according to the Office of In-
stitutional Research.

Because of this. the university,
clubs, groups and off-campus organi-
zations invest numerous man hours
into pulling students into the social
life of campus.

“One of our major goals is help-
ing students meet other people,“ said
Assistant Dean of Students Tammy
Howard. who coordinates Kentucky
Welcome. “A major factor for reten-
tion is establishing connections with
others on campus. We know that stu-
dents who get involved and who join
organizations are more likely to come
back in the spring."

UK ranks low
in race relations,
dorm quality

Princeton Review survey mentions UK in 5 areas;
administrators consider student perceptions


UK’s dorms, study habits, teaching assistants and
race relations didn’ t fare well in the recent “Best 351 Col-
leges” survey conducted by The Princeton Review.

teaching too many upper- -level classes, No 7 in having
students who almost never study, No.17 in having little
race/class interaction and No.8 for the category “Dorms
Like Dungeons."

Int each category, 20 schools were listed as “has ” or
‘lwom .9,

The review did award one positive ranking— the
Kentucky Kernel ranked No.11 in the category "Great
College Newspaper”

UK administrators said the survey points out areas
that need improvement.

“Perception is reality," said Jim Wims, director of
Residence Life “We hope to begin to change the percep-
tion of students toward our residence halls.‘

Wims also said he and other vice presidents agree
the dorms need updating and renovations.

“With age comes challenges,” he said “People are in-
terested in moving forward.”

Administrators are also examining other concerns
raised by the survey

In fall 2002, teaching assistants taught 5.9 percent of
upper-level classes, said Roger Sugarman, the planning
and assessment director for Institutional Research.

To rank the colleges, The Princeton Review has
about 300 students at each campus fill out a 70-question
grid- based survey that encompasses academies, campus
life, stucb' hours, student body and ideologies. 0f the 83
lists in the “Best 351 Colleges" book, 60 are based solely
on student surveys.

~ A disclaimer on the Princeton Review Web site
states that “a ranking list appearance does not reflect the
Princeton Review’s opinion of the college, but a high
consensus of opinion among the college’s surveyed stu—
dents about it.”

However, some new students say that rankings like
the Princeton Review’s had no impact on their decision
to enroll at UK.

“Rankings don’t really matter when you find a cam-
pus that fits," said business freshman Cory Bailey.

The Princeton Review has conducted its annual sur-
vey of colleges since 1992.

LCC placed on probation, working for accreditation

President says status indicates dependence on UK;

some LCC students see the close tie as a benefit

By Jessica Sela

By Rebecca Ned

The Commission of Col-
leges, a division of the South-
ern Association of Colleges
and Schools, recently put Lex-
ington Community College
on a oneyear probation.

LCC’s president, James
Kerley, said the probation is-
n't reflective of the college.

“It has nothing to do with
the quality of the school," he

The commission said it
felt that LCC “has not yet
demonstrated that it has suffi-
cient autonomy to be accred-
ited separately” from the Uni-
versity of Kentucky, accord-
ing to 'a report issued by the

With this accreditation,
the school would have the au-
tonomy to operate as any oth-
er community college in the
state of Kentucky LCC would
also belong to the Southern
Association of Colleges after
gaining the accreditation.

Accreditation is a way
for the commission to ensure

that schools are meeting the
required standards and that
their academic credits are
able to transfer to other

Kerley said the school is
working hard to keep their
accreditation from the Com-
mission of Colleges.

Kerley has appointed a
committee to make decisions
and do research about any
needed changes. Charles
Coulston, co-chair of the com-
mittee, declined to comment
on the actions being taken.

LCC has three options.
Kerley said. The first option
is continue accreditation in-
dependent of UK. If this is
not does not happen, Kerley
said the school will join ei’

ther UK or the Kentucky
Community and Technical
College System.

Separate accreditation is
the preference.

“There is strong empha-
sis being put on this option,"
Kerley said.

Kerley said he hopes that
when probation is over, the
school will gain this “stamp
of quality" and emerge as a
better college.

Some LCC students said
that LCC is clearly dependent
on UK.

“They are dependent. but
that's how they sell it to
prospective students.“ said
Steven Hamm. a computer
science senior at LCC.

He said LCC recruiters

don’t try to separate the two

“When they come.
they‘re saying that you‘re go
ing UK and LCC. not just Lex-
ington Community College,"
he said.

The closeness of the two
colleges on the same campus
helps students who couldn‘t
afford UK. he said.

“Kids aren't suffering
from the dependency. they‘re
benefitting from it." Hamm

He said students proba—
bly don't care about any dis-
tinctions between UK and

“I've never heard one fit
over the two being close." he

It has
nothing to
do with the
quality of
the school.”

Twist was one of about
700 who participated in Mon-

man to work in small groups
and help the community as
they completed 40 service
projects around Lexington.

Vice President of Stu-

group of students to one of
the volunteer sites.

“This is a great opportu-
nity today for students to
connect with other students,

ers, for them to connect with

UK raises parking fines


Students returning to

. campus are now facing high-
. er parking fines, even as park-

ing permit prices have in-

“Any time you have a
change in permit prices. then
you need a change in ticket
prices," said Don Thornton.
director of UK parking and
transportation. “This will
keep students from taking an

’ economic approach."

Most citations now come

. with a fine of $25. If a ticket

is paid within 10 days from
the date it was issued the
price is dnopped to $15.

This is a 55 increase from

. last year, when fines were

usually for $20.

Fines for parking in a
handicap space is still $50.

The increase in fines
alongside the increase in per-
mit prices is designed to
keep drivers from trying to
save money by parking ille-

. sally.

“Some students think it

‘ will be cheaper to get a few
' parking tickets and not pay







$152 for a parking permit."
Thornton said. “This is not
fair to those who buy permits
and cannot find spaces to

' park because of the viola-


Thornton said K lot per-
mits for Commonwealth Sta-
dium increased to keep the
bus system from the lot to
various places on campus
running. The campus bus
system is funded by parking
permit money.

“The money from the
permits and citations go to-
ward paying for parking
garages, updating equipment.
bus costs. parking lots. park-
ing control signs and parking
management systems.“ he

Thornton said fines are a
necessary part of the parking

“When dealing with
parking. there are two
groups: violators and permit
holders. Violators won‘t pay
tickets and permit holders
get tired of trying to find
spaces to park. Nobody has
found a better way to stop vio-
lators than issuing citations
and impounding vehicles."
Thornton said.

Despite the fine increase.
some students will continue
to collect violations.

Brent Guiliani, a sociolo-
gy senior, said he has more
than $200 in unpaid parking

“I live off campus so I
don't buy a permit," he said.
“I got a lot of tickets last year
when I visited my girlfriend
who lives on south campus."

Most of his tickets were
issued because he let the
money run out in the parking
meter. he said.

He also got a $50 ticket
for parking in a handicap

“I ran into my girl-
friends dorm for two minutes
and when I came back to my
car I had a ticket waiting on
me," Guiliani said.

Guiliani said he will pay
his tickets before he gradu-
ates in December since UK
will not let students graduate
until all fees are paid.

Many freshmen aren't
yet familiar with parking ci-
tations but are quickly learn-
ing that fines pile up.

yet but I probably will get a
lot this semester." said Vic-to

Fraternities Welcome Newest UK Class, by Lee Wilson

As the freshman class arrives at UK and settles into their first college weekend. fratemity recruit-
ment begins

After purchasing their textbooks. re—arranging their entertainment system for the third time. and
devouring their first late night UK pizza. a majority of the nearly 2000 freshmen will participate
in fratemity recruitment beginning on Monday August 25m

in most cases, fraternity recrurtment is the first chance for UK freshmen to meet the nearly 1200
Greek men on campus. it‘s an exciting time. one in which lifelong friendships begin; future busi-
ness partners meet for the first time. and for many. the beginning of their greatest memones.

“Right now it's an exciting time to be in a fratemity at UK. We‘re coming off a successful year in
which we improved our grades. expanded our membership. and won several national awards.
We've come so far. so quickly. and we‘re not done yet." commented senior lnterfratemity Council
President John Weis.

Contrary to Hollywood or MTV‘s version of Greek Life. the UK Fraternities are not “Animal
House" or “Old School". The chapter's place a strong emphasis on scholarship and collectively
exceed the all»male average with a 2.9] gpa. In addition to succeeding in the Classroom. the fra-
ternities are very active within the UK and Lexington Community. demonstrated by their involve—
ment in raising $62000 last year and contributing over 26.000 hours of community service.

When the fratemity members are not in the classroom or impacting the Lexington Community.
they can be found leading campus organizations. Developing leadership skills remains a core
value within the fratemitics that continues to send the best and brightest into Fortune 500
Companies. C ongress, and professional sports, At UK the fraternity members utilize their
network of peers to sharpen their skills as leaders and assume a variety of positions including
Student Government. Student Activities Board, and various academic and honoraries.

llV & SQ“ N “College has been a terrific experience and my involvement within the fratemity community has
played a vital role in my personal and professional development. I knew coming to UK that
fraternities had a good reputation for developing leaders. and I only hope that this year‘s freshmen
will give it the same opportunity l did. The positive impact of the fratemity experience is truly
amazing," commented Inter Greek Programming Assembly President Ryan Schoonover.

So as many of this year‘s newest class settles into UK and finishes that last bite of late night pizza.
many will think about the next few years and how they can begin to maximize the college
experience. We have one question for you...UK Fraternity Life...is it in you?

Congratulations again on your decision to attend the University of Kentucky and we look forward
to meeting you during fratemity recruitment from August 25-29. Welcome to the UK Fraternity

Major power outage not likely at UK

Utilities spokesman says
electric system is fine;
: UK students still worry


Around 50 million resi-
dents of Canada, and the
Northeastern and Midwest
ern United States were forced
to deal with a sudden loss of
power earlier this month, but
a power outage of that extent
is not likely here in Lexing-
ton, said Cliff Feltham, a
spokesperson for Kentucky

“It’s very unlikely that a
power outage like that could
happen for a variety of rea-
sons, but it's not a total/ab-
solute," Feltham said. “If
something catastrophic hap
pened to the system, it's con-
ceivable that it could happen
here, but it’s not likely."

Feltham said the electric
system was in good shape
acmss the state.

“They’re doing what they
can to make sure they don't
experience what the north.
east experienced."

Feltham said the power

cause the power outage was-
n’t close enough to threaten
the system.

A power outage is usually
caused by wind or lightening
from storms, Feltham said.

The blackout in the
northeast is believed to have
started in Northern Ohio, and
the exact cause is still being
investigated. Power was re-
turned to most places by Fri-
days and had returned every-
where by Sunday, Aug. 17.
