The Maroon ESTABLISHED 1923 VOL. 77 NO. 19 Loyola University New Orleans FRIDAY, MARCH 19, 1999 Danahar finalist for North Carolina post By PIERCE PRESLEY News Editor The University of North Carolina- Asheville may be the greener grass that draws David Danahar, provost and vice president of Academic Affairs, away from Loyola. Danahar visited UNCA Monday and spoke to faculty and students, according to the Asheville Citizen- Times. The call left him with a good impression of the university. "It was a beautiful community and campus," he said. Danahar was the first of four finalists vying to replace current UNCA chancellor Patsy Reed to visit the campus. The last will visit UNCA April 1 and the search committee will make a choice May 14. While in Asheville, Danahar addressed more than 100 faculty and staff members in a speech introducing him to the university. University president the Rev. Bernard Knoth, S.J. found both good and bad in Danahar's possible departure. "If this represents a new opportunity for Dr. Danahar's wonderful skills, I would be happy for him and sad for our loss," he said. But there is a plan for the contingency, Knoth said. "If it would happened that Dr. Danahar should leave, there is a very detailed protocol in the handbook to replace him and we would follow the protocol provided." Knoth also expressed confidence in Danahar's qualifications for the position. "Probably right now he knows more about admissions, financial aid and retention than any provost at a private college in the United States," he said. Danahar pointed out that the job isn't his, yet. "There's a long way to go," he said. — with reporting by Tommy Santora Computers driving education's future By SARAH SPARKS Editor in Chief It changed science. It changed business. Now that the wave of computer technology is crashing into our everyday lives, education has been swept into the flow. Technology's effect on education at Loyola will not be a simple transition from written memos to telnet to Loy-mail, but a continuous and holistic shift in how and what students learn. The facets of this change are so dynamic that those speculating on its progress on campus often shy from looking ahead more than three to five years. They fall back on the rule of Intel cofounder Gordon Moore: "The number of transistors on a chip doubles every 18 months," and take it for granted that the face of technology might be drastically altered within a few years. And while debates over innovations such as the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's electronic 1 hooks make front-page | headlines, they actually represent only scuffles in the battle to alter the foundations of learning and teaching.

Monroe Memorial Library in search of journals and thumb through volumes on three floors' worth of shelves, but some wonder whether the library should contain books at all. One of the sessions at the library's opening symposium, "Challenging Southern Values, Changing Southern Culture," discussed the possibility of moving the entire library online.

CDA convenes, draws politicos By JESSICA NAVAY Photo Editor Loyola hosted dignitaries including the governor of Kentucky at the College Democrats of America's second annual region five convention Saturday. With help from the State Federation, Loyola Student Democrat members Amber Heller, history junior, Erica Poindexter, vice president and communications junior, and Soultana Mixakis, secretary and sociology senior, organized the convention. "New Orleans is one of the most democratic cities in the South. The overwhelming democratic majority in New Orleans politics and the fact that Louisiana is one of the only three states having a gubernatorial election made it a perfect choice," said Heller, Loyola chapter president and region five coordinator. Region five covers Alabama, Mississippi, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana and Puerto Rico. More than 45 delegates from 12 colleges and universities, including a visiting delegation from Texas, came to the convention.

BSU finding ways to deal with tightened budget By YLAN MUI Online Editor This semester clubs have had to tighten their belts because of limited funds available from the Student Government Association. Requests were more than double the collected student fees. The SGA Ways and Means Committee held multiple meetings to decide budget allocations. Most clubs did not receive full funding. The Black Student Union was one of the hardest hit. The lack of revenue forced it to rework events it sponsored. "This semester it was a bit difficult because from the start there was less money (for SGA) to give out," said Delesslyn Kennebrew, communications junior and president of BSU. The percentage of funds allocated to BSU versus the amount of funds that BSU requested has fluctuated since fall 1996. No information was available on previous years and the amount requested in spring 1996 because of changes in the SGA filing system. There was also no information available for spring 1997 because of clerical problems with former SGA finance director Patrick Dixon, finance senior. BSU received 75,50 and 56 percent of requested funds for the fall semesters See FUTURE, Pg. 4 See LSD, Pg. 4 SeeBSU,Pg.X ■HB NEWS SPORTS LIFE & TIMES .
