"For a Greater Loyola." THE MAROON ESTABLISHED 1923 V0L.77 NO. 24 FRIDAY, APRIL 30, 1999 Loyola University New Orleans Clubs' future championship plans in doubt By ROBERT TREADWAY Editorial Editor The Maroon has learned that Student Affairs has proposed cutting off all financial support to club sports including the swim team, which was successful in its inaugural season, and track and field. In a meeting Wednesday. Nan Davis, acting athletics director, spoke with swim team captains Gianna Rossi, biology senior, and Luis Rivera, political science freshman, about the proposal. It reportedly would prohibit club sports from participating in NAIA-sanctioned activities. Davis told Rossi and Rivera that SA is considering the proposal because some club teams have "skipped" the Board of Trustees in getting approved to become involved in NAIA activity. Davis also said expanding the program would only strain the department's staff and that the Rev. Bernard Knoth, S.J., university president, thinks the sports program is growing too rapidly. Davis and Vicki McNeil, associate vice president of Student Affairs, confirmed these facts, but declined to comment. James Eiseman, vice president for Student Affairs said the proposal is still in the idea phase, and declined further comment. Diana Ornitz, communications junior and swim team member, said she is discouraged by the university's proposal and doubts the swim teams' future. "I am disappointed. Gianna and Luis worked hard to get these teams started," she said. "Big teams are not going to want to compete against us. They want to play big teams. It (the proposal) is very limiting."

Weather woes, faculty exodus highlight eventful school year By PIERCE PRESLEY News Editor Wild weather began a year marked by new faces in high places, construction in various degrees of completion and the transformation of several student organizations. In all, the year saw dramatic changes in the people, places and ideas at Loyola. PEOPLE New blood moved into the higher echelons of the administration as Ayi/jlyciQ Frank Scully and Edward Kvet became deans of the colleges of arts and sciences and music, respectively. James Eiseman left the communications department for the vice presidency of Student Affairs. Eiseman replaced Vincent Knipfing, ending the Knipfing's 26-year tenure. The Rev. Bernard Knoth, S.J., university president, picked Eiseman from the professorial ranks in a move designed to bring a fresh Residential Life releases lottery results By JULIE LaRUE Staff writer If you're going to live in the new dorm next year, you know who you are. All seven floors of the new residence hall filled I following a weighted lottery based on class standing, I grade point average, and the number of semesters ! students have lived in the residence halls. The lottery determined who was chosen for the j new hall. Students earned bonus points if they did j not have a disciplinary record and if they had been on the single room waiting list. Students had to sign up as a group with their roommates for next year. "That was the fairest way. We didn't make the decision. The students' points made the decision," said Thomas Bourgeois, Residential Life assistant director for special projects. Bourgeois said students lost points if they lied or filled out their applications incorrectly. Applicants completed for suites and apartments in the new dorm. There were nine apartments available in the new residence hall, according to Bourgeois. There were several different types of apartments available. The residence hall has one three-person and one four-person single apartment per floor. There are also some five-person apartments with double and single rooms. The three-person apartments are handicapped-accessible, so they went to students with disabilities first. In single apartments, each student has a private room, but shares the common areas such as the living room and kitchen. Double apartments mean that students share a room. Roommates decided who will have his or her own room and who will share rooms. The remainder of the second through fifth floors consists of suites of room*: with students sharing a common area. The sixth and seventh floors are all apartments. Suites in the new dorms cost $2, l(X) per semester, while apartments go for $500 more per semester. Bourgeois said roommate sign-up will decrease the number of room changes next year and to allow students more freedom than in traditional residence See YEAR, Pg. 3 See DORM.
