THE MAROON ESTABLISHED 1923 VOL. 74 NO. 21 Loyola University New Orleans FRIDAY, APRIL 12, 1996 Honors students to register early By EMILY NETZHAMMER Staff writer Beginning next semester, all honors students will be allowed to register with priority senior status. This plan will allow honors students, regardless of class status, to register first. According to Nancy Anderson, director of the Honors Program, the plan was introduced for many reasons. "Honors students are very restricted in which classes they can take," Anderson said. "The classes that they must take are offered at very limited times." Honors students are not required to take the regular common curriculum courses. Instead, they must take honors curriculum courses which may only be offered in one or two sections. Because of the limited number of honors courses available, it has been difficult for some honors students to coordinate the requirements of their major around their honors curriculum, Anderson said. "Many honors programs throughout the state are already offering their honors students advanced registration," she said. "We want to attract the best students to our program, and, to be competitive, Professor dies in car accident By NEAL FALGOUST News Editor Keith W.

Black students, angry with the newspaper's coverage of a February 1995 dance which was broken up by Chicago police and campus security officers, staged a sit-in at the newspaper office for eight days last April. At the top of their list of demands was the termination of the paper's student editor, an apology from the staff and, for the long term, an improvement in the paper's coverage of minority issues. The mid-April protests ended peacefully, but not without significant coverage in the local and national media and changes in the newspaper's operation and the university's structure Among these changes: increasing DePaul's already broad multicultural efforts with the addition of a senior administrative position on diversity and opening a cultural center for planning multicultural activities. While some on DePaul's campus say the additions were not a direct result of the protest, the incident has nevertheless brought attention to issues of diversity at Carter scheduled to assume chancellor position this summer By STEPHEN STUART Managing Editor After having spent close to a year away from the university, the Rev. James Carter, S J., former university president, will return to Loyola on July 1 to assume the position of chancellor. The position was created for Carter upon his retirement in May 1995, after having served 20 years as university president. Carter described his present role away from the university as "much more relaxed" than his years as president, but he feels ready to return to Loyola. "Life has certain rhythms. There are times to do high-energy things and times to slow down," he said in a phone interview with The Maroon. "I'm ready to go back to a more demanding kind of work. But it was nice to get away for a while." Currently, Carter serves as interim director for the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities. He and his three-person staff work out of the office in the National Center for Higher Education. Carter said that his duties as director include organizing meetings, gathering information from Jesuit campuses and watching what happens in the federal government, especially with financial aid legislation. "In this position, I have contact with the government," he said. "I never know when I'll have to drop in on Capitol Hill." Carter's work in the position, which had been vacant, began on Jan. 1 and lasts until July 1. He said he attends Loyola alumni functions in the Washington, D.C., area. Before he accepted the assignment with the association, Carter had committed to serving as chaplain of a cruise ship sailing the Caribbean in March. The cruise company acquired his name from his sister-in-law, who is a travel agent, he said. He temporarily left his position as director to fulfill this commitment. As chaplain, Carter celebrated daily Mass for the passengers and offered counseling and renewal of marriage vows. From September to January, while the Rev. Bernard Knoth, S.J., started his term as university president, Carter went on a sabbatical during which he visited family and friends. "It's traditional for the predecessor to be absent for a time while the new person adjusts," said the Rev. Larry Moore, S.J., law professor and member of the Board of Trustees, in a Sept. IS Maroon article. During his sabbatical Carter also used the scuba-diving equipment given to him upon his retirement from the presidency, See HONORS, Pg. 3 See DEPAUL, Pg. 4 See CARTER, Pg. 4 SGA president-elect discusses goals for next academic year. ■BPS Professional soccer tries to break into U.S. market.
