THE MAROON Loyola University New Orleans FRIDAY, MARCH 4, 1994 V0L.72 NO. 18 ESTABLISHED 1922 Campus divided over candidates By VICKI MCGRAIL Staff Writer Voters will cast their choice tomorrow between Donald Mintz and Marc Mortal. A run-off election is necessary because, although Mintz and Mortal gained the highest number of votes in the primary election, neither candidate received a majority vote. Many students and faculty on campus are still unsure of who they will vote for and most student organizations chose not to endorse either candidate. "I really haven't made up my mind yet," said Eric Gorham, assistant professor of political science and advisor for the Loyola University Political Science Student Association. Michelle Byrne, sociology/psychology junior and president of the Loyola Student Sociology Student Organization, can't register to vote because she does not live in New Orleans parish. Byrne said she is still undecided about who she would support even if she could vote. 'To be honest, I haven't even researched this very much," Byrne said. But Byrne isn't the only student not registered to vote in the election. The majority of Loyola students do not even live within the parish. Out of the 4,888 full and part-time students registered, 3,098 are Louisiana residents. But only 736 of these students live in the Orleans Mintz Morial Don't Shoot! New signs announced last week that the campus is a "Firearm Free Zone." The signs are posted at both the St. Charles and Freret Street entrances. By JOHN VANDOVER UPB provides members with experience and leadership By THU TRAN Staff Writer BEYOND THE CLASSROOM KT «I»Tin?TT^B Have you ever experienced Virtual Reality or made a Fun Ricks music video? Did you ever attend a TGIF or listen to a speaker in Nunemaker Hall? These events and many more would not be possible without the University Programming Board. UPB is the student organization responsible for the programming of various activities on campus. Such activities include movies and film festivals, TGIFs, lectures, debates and artists. UPB president Lucia Ramano, psychology junior, said the organization needs students to become more involved and take part in the planning of the programs because it is the students who decide what speakers and events are to come to the university. "UPB really needs people to be dedicated and become involved. Luckily, we have dedicated members. Programming would be better, though, if we had more involvement," Ramano said. Arthur Laughlin, psychology sophomore and chairperson for the Performing Arts said that UPB gives students the opportunity to develop skills in time management, delegation, organization and most importantly, leadership. "My experience with UPB has been extremely positive. I've learned a lot of leadership skills and I've put these skills to work," Laughlin said. Chris Cameron, UPB adviser, agreed that the organization teaches students skills that they can use in the future. "I am happy when the students know what it is SGA says Estorino shouldn't be fined By CHRIS BONURA and JENNY JOHNSON Staff Writers The Student Government Association passed a resolution Tuesday requesting that Residential Life not charge Maria Estorino $1,000 for losing the master keys to Biever Residential Hall. Estorino, history junior, was the Resident Assistant on duty the night the keys were lost or stolen. The $ 1,000 that Residential Life fined her would pay for the new locks for the wing doors. Residential Life has also requested that Estorino not return next year as an RA. The resolution states, "Residential Life should take full responsibility for this incident and not assess Maria for their lack of implementing safety procedures before Jan. 28, which would have prevented this incident." This refers to the new policy which Residential Life implemented after the keys were declared missing.The new key policy requires that the only set of master keys are kept in Residential Life Director Robert Reed's office. The RA on duty has to check them out at night and sign them back in the morning. The resolution states that if this policy was in place earlier, the keys would not be missing. Reed said Residential Life changed the procedure to keeping the master keys in his office so that they would have a recorded log of who has the keys at all times. "It's nowhere written that there is acorrectmaster key procedure," Estorino said. She said during her time with Residential Life it was common practice for members to keep keys in their mailbox, as she did when they were lost or stolen. Reed agreed that the RAs often kept the master keys in their mailboxes and that was one reason that prompted the change in procedure. "The RAs said they were leaving them in the box behind the desk to pass them from one duty RA to the next," Reed said. When asked if there is a set procedure in the Residential Life handbook about the handling of the master keys. Reed said that he believed there is. SGA election dates set By CHRIS BONURA Managing Editor The Student Government Association elections to determine next year's administration will take place March 23 and 24. Candidates interested in entering the race have until March 10 to apply and qualify. The positions of president, vice-president, congresspersons-at-large, delegation presidents and representatives will all be determined by the election.Students will also be voting on changes to the SG A constitution. The SGA Constitutional Review committee has been compiling a listof loopholes and unclear areas of the constitution. The committee will make suggestions on constitutional changes, and these changes have to be approved by the SGA congress and the students. On Tuesday, the SGA decided to hold the elections earlier than previously planned. The SGA constitution states that elections should be held in the month of April. But the SGA has had trouble scheduling the election and run-offs in the past because of conflicts with Spring break and exams. Some congress members said they thought that despite scheduling problems, the SGA should suck to the constitution. SGA Arts and Sciences representative Katy Montgomery, political science sophomore, said that holding the elections earlier would put too much pressure on Constitutional Review. She said the committee needs time to make sure it has the constitutional changes right. See KEYS Pg. 3 See MAYORS Pg. S See UPB Pg.4 q ~Vr Roll Those Dice!
