THE MAROON VOL. 86, NO. 1 WWW.LOYOLAMAROON.COM FRIDAY, AUGUST 29, 2008 SGA designates smoking zones Policy extinguishes smoking in designated areas By JESSICA WILLIAMS and SARAH GOODWIN THE MAROON For many Loyola students who light up after a few hours of studying, the library entrance's steps are the perfect social smoking area. But if a new Loyola SGA proposal passes this year, the smoke clouds that rise above the Monroe Library and many other places on campus will permanently disappear. If passed, this proposal would create designated smoking areas, which lie far away from the entrances and exits of campus buildings.Although popular spots like "Smoker's Alley" (the row of benches in the Peace Quad), and "the back porch" behind the Danna Center are protected areas, smoking on other areas of the campus will be prohibited. According to the 2007-2008 Student Handbook, smoking within 20 feet of residence halls was banned last year. But some students feel that this year's tentative allbuilding inclusive ordinance is too much to take. Mass communication sophomore Courtney Anderson said that the restrictions would be difficult to enforce. "Who will abide by this? People are still going to smoke where they've been smoking," she INTO THE STREETS PHOTO COURTESY OF SGA Designated smoking areas: benches between Bobet and Marquette, Palm Court benches, benches outside Monroe and Miller halls, left and back porches of Danna Center, the Res Quad, Peace Quad, Cabra porch, Dunbar's patio and near the Law School entrance.

Danna Center Interior The new retro designs for the Danna Center hearken back to match the design of the building's exterior. Furniture that looks like it could come from the 'Jane Jetson collection' and color schemes straight out of an "Austin Powers" movie give the activity center its own '60s flavor.

DAN HELFERS / THE MAROON : I KEVIN ZANSLER / THE MAROON President addresses new class Incoming freshman class is a sign of progress By STEVE HEATH NEWS EDITOR After two years of sagging post-Katrina admissions, the university has hastened to make this year's incoming class a symbol of progress. The Rev. Kevin Wildes, S.J., university president, highlighted this year's larger-than-expected freshman class at both faculty and student convocations held on Sept. 18 and 22 respectively. "For this year we targeted an incoming first year class of 600 students. I am delighted to report that this year's class is over 700, and the profile of the class is excellent," Wildes told faculty early in his speech. At the student convocation last Friday the new Vice President for Enrollment Management Sal Liberto opened the ceremony with a speech about the diversity of the new class. According to the Web site for the Office of the President 713 students have enrolled as freshman for this year - a 34 percent increase from last year's numbers. The university's Office of Institutional Research said the enrollment numbers were continuously updated and will not be official until Sept. 15. Last year's unofficial enrollment estimates overshot the eventual level by 28 students see SMOKER, page 5 see WILDES, page 13 A LOYOLA TRADITION SINCE 19 2 3 • "FOR A GREAT ER LOYOLA" ▲ Remembering FWI Katrina Aug. 291 2005'2008 MAROON DIRECTORY: CALENDAR, page 2 | EDITORIAL, page 6 | LIFE & TIMES, page 8 | SPORTS, page 12 | NEWS TIPS; 865 3535 CORRECTION: The April 11th "Leaders of the 'Pack" said outfielder Brian Mason batted a school record 20 hits for the season.
