ma Alpha house razed


Thanks for the memories

Pascal Rich, a secondary education junior, returns to his former home. the Kappa Alpha house. for a memento. KA decided to demolish the house

rather than Investing the money to repair it.

Demolished: Kappa Alpha seeks new house
with help from national headquarters, alumni

By Kristi Martin

UK‘s oldest fraternity no longer has a home.

In fact. all that is left of their long-time home is a gaping hole.

The Kappa Alpha Order fraternity house was demolished last
Friday before classes began.

The members of Kappa Alpha Order fraternity voluntarily
moved out of the house last spring because of the deterioration of
the aging building.

Problems with the building were too expensive to fix. said
Nick Doiron. vice president of KA and a biology junior.

“In order to make the house livable again. it would cost
$100,000 and we were not willing to put that kind of money into
the project of restoring the building." he said.

The fraternity decided to allow their lease with UK to expire.
said Matt Proud. president of KA and a nursing senior.

He said that they decided to look for another place to reside

UK decided to demolish the house instead of allowing another
organization to use it.

Proud said that the house will be missed. “The decision to de-
stroy the building was disappointing because the members that
lived in the house had so many memories within those walls. but
we did not want to live there any longer." he said.

Though not all KA members will live in a house together this
year. they have moved to a cluster of a few houses. Activities
have continued as usual.

“A fraternity is like any other organization. and we do not
function around a house. We go on with meetings and activities,"
Proud said.

Both Doiron and Proud agreed that living without a house
has been a learning experience. but said that the fraternity has
managed to keep ties strong.

Weekly meetings are currently being held at an off-campus
site. Doiron said. Doiron added that the fraternity listserv also
helps bridges communication between the members.

The fraternity is currently working on fundraising ideas to
buy or build a new house in the future. Alumni members and the
national headquarters are supporting them in the efforts to raise
money for a new house. A national coordinator is working on pro-
jects to raise more than $1 million for UK‘s Kappa Alpha Order.
and alumni members are donating money to the eflort.

“We are not planning to leave the University of Kentucky
anytime soon. Our chapter is as strong as it has ever been. and we
wagt to continue the tradition of Kappa Alpha Order." Doiron

Parking spaces

By Casey llamilton


More than 20 students found their parking spots filled with
bricks Thursday morning. as construction on new fraternity hous-
es spilled into their lot.

“There are just piles and piles of bricks in the parking lot."
said Heather Watts, who lives in the Delta Gamma house and
parks in the lot.

The R-S lot is located off Columbia Avenue and behind Sorori~
ty Row. Sorority members and members of the Sigma Alpha Ep-
silon fraternity usually park in the lot. Normally there are about
30 spaces. but now only about three or four spaces remain.

UK decided to close the lot to prevent any damages to cars
parked there during the masonry work on the SAE fraternity
house. The lot will reopen when construction finishes in about
four weeks.

“There's concem with bricks falling on the permit holders."
said Don Thornton. director of parking. ”We are trying to do some-
thing to open up some more spaces."

During construction. students can return their passes for a
pro-rated refund or have it switched to another lot somewhere else
on campus.

But many of the lots are already filled and permits aren‘t

“We have to be sure we don't oversell the permits. and we
don‘t find out about construction until the permits have been is
sued " Thornton said.

Professor goofs,
misses final exam

By Emily llagedorn


It was the beginning of a very long week. The students of Socis
ology 409 and Sociology 342 came to their classroom Monday
morning. Dec. 10. expecting to take their final.

But their professor. Thomas Egan. committed one of the
biggest faux pas of college — he missed the final exam.

“We all thought something happened to him." said Courtney
Sullivan. a communications senior in his Sociology 409 class.

Actually. Egan just made a simple mistake he wrote down
the wrong date.

“I was thinking the 10th was Tuesday." Egan said. "They (the
classes) were back to back."

The sociology department was sympathetic to the accident.

“(Egan) has two other classes and it was just a matter of writ-
ing down the wrong time." said William F. Skinner. head of the so-
ciology department.

The department sent every student an apology letter. Skinner
said. Special allowances were given to graduating students and
students with scholarship deadlines. and the secretaries took
every student‘s phone number before they left class on Dec, 10.
Egan said.

Some. though. believe the incident was not handled properly.

“They didn't handle the situation very well." Sullivan said.
“We called the offices and they didn't return our phone calls.“

Other students echoed Sul-
livan‘s sentiments.

“I think they should have
done a better job of contacting
us." said Robyn Halt, a psy-
chology senior and a student
of Sociology 409.

The sociology department
and the Ombud‘s office decided
students could either take a fi-
nal exam in the classroom or a
take home essay.

“We made sure there were
several options. both before
the semester as well as now
since this situation is ongo-
ing." Egan said. “People have
the opportunity to make a
choice of whatever is easiest to
do to complete the course."

The department did not
treat the final grade differently
because of Egan‘s absence.

Some students felt this
was unfair.

“I really think they should
have let us take the grade we

had at that point or given us a
100 for the final and factored
that in with the rest of our
grade.” Sullivan said. “If we
didn‘t attend the test we would
have gotten an incomplete. but
the professor doesn't show and
we have to take out time to
make up the final."

Halt had to return to Lex-
ington to take the final.

“It took a lot of effort and
at that point I was done with fi-
nals," Halt said.

Skinner says Egan is still
a professor at UK and his stu-
dents say this is uncharacter-
istic of him.

“(Egam was a really nice
guy and a good professor."
Halt said.

thought something was wrong

After meeting with the Dean of Students staff and several
students, we agree that there are problems with the current
lottery process. Although we agreed not to abandon the current
lottery process completely for the year, we will implement the

following changes:

Doors will open early in order to get the students in the
building so that the lottery can start earlier.

An announcement will be made as soon as the doors are closed
to notify all students as to whether or not they are guaranteed

to get tickets.

We will not guarantee that large groups who attend the lottery
will sit next to each other, but only that they will be in the same
row or the row behind their group.

There will be no group seating for the last three games.

There will be a separate lottery for the Florida game, in
anticipation of an overflow crowd.
