THE MAROON VOL. 85, NO. 5\)ll WWW.LOYOLAMAROON.COM FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2007 Student faces direct hit Tuesday morning tornado takes off front of apartment From Staff Rtports After a tornado stormed through parts of New Orleans Tuesday morning in a hit-or-miss pattern, some people were left instantly homeless. Jesse Faulk, history senior, was one of those people. In a matter of about 15 seconds, the entire front of the Freret Street fourplex he called home was ripped off, along with part of a side wall and the roof. At about 3 a.m., Faulk woke up from a short nap to start studying. While he was in his kitchen making a snack, he heard something out of the ordinary. "All of a sudden," Faulk said, "it sounded like really heavy rain had started, and I realized it wasn't rain, it was wind." The next thing he heard were windows breaking around the neighborhood. A few seconds later, the sounds hit closer to home — literally. "My windows all started breaking, and at that point the electricity went out," Faulk recalled. He said from beginning to end, the entire scenario lasted about 15 seconds. As Tuesday drew on, Faulk, dressed in a white T-shirt, basketball shorts and flip-flops sorted through his possessions, searching for what could be salvaged as a debris pile, already about five feet tall, grew on the curb. A day after the tornado spun through, Faulk has begun a new search. "The buildings not structurally sound. I have to move out and find a new place," he said.

Faulk lived in the top left portion of the house and said the tornado tore through in about 15 seconds. Will that be Wolf or Wavebucks? By KATHY MARTINEZ THE MAROON If test run goes as anticipated, college meal plans could cross campus lines Loyola Wolfbucks and Tulane Wavebucks may be interchangeable in the near future, depending on the results of a controlled experiment Both universities have chosen students to participate in a trial ihter-campus culinary exchange. These students will act as secret shoppers who can transfer their "bucks between schools. Their spending habits will be monitored and will determine whether the program is expanded for all students, according to Rob Hailey, vice president of Tulane Student Affairs. "We are trying to figure out what college kids want out of their campus. We just want to provide a variety of venues that Danna Center changes on way By STEVE HEATH THE MAROON Expanded hours, new services among planned upgrades While Loyola is looking at the possibility of major renovations to the Danna Center, students can expect several changes as early as next semester.

These include the guests of Loyola students who live on campus. Every year, residential students are allowed to have guests in the dorms during the break, but not without adherence to a few rules and security adjustments implemented by Residential Life and University Police.
