MAROON LOYOLA UNIVERSITY NEW ORLEANS NOVEMBER 19(1976 VOL. LI 11 INIO.IO Vandalism in the dorms By Dwan Singleton Vending machines, elevators, walls and other parts of Biever Hall are the targets for residents who vandalize. Through letters to the residents of Biever Hall, the problem has been outlined and their cooperation in combating vandalism was requested. Because of the destruction to the vending machines, residents were notified that the area in which they are situated will be closed from midnight until seven in the morning. Mitch Salmere of the Men's Residence Council described the purpose of campus life as providing "the conducive environment for spiritual, academic and social maturation." Vandalism could be considered a manifestation of a lack of such growth. Salmere emphasized that the fault does not lie with the University. Some people feel, "It's just a prank. It's part of being in college," he noted. If a person is caught destroying the property, he is subject to a behavior report. Whether it goes to the Student Affairs Office is "at the discretion of the Resident Director," explained Salmere. "It's flexible because each case is different." The Assistant to the Vice President of Student Affairs, Joseph Kavanaugh, determines the innocence or guilt of the subject. If his guilt is established, he may be subject to a fine or a penalty. Buddig Hall is not suffering from vandalism. There were slugs in the vending machines and some broken windows. However, Maureen O'Keefe, the Residnet Director explained, "Those are all accidental. We have no vandalism. They really take good care of the building. I cannot remember an act of malicious vandalism." She felt that this was because Buddig Hall is younger and in better condition that Biever Hall. The elevators in Buddig Hall are not tampered with because the girls are not equipped with enough mechanical knowledge or strength to do them any harm, according to O'Keefe. Major instances of vandalism, such as tampering with vending machines, are reported to Campus Security. However, explained Francis Oschmann, Director of Campus Security, while the damage may be easy to detect, the vandal is not. The cost of protecting the machines with men or cameras is prohibitive since about $20 worth of damage usually is the result of an attack by a vandal. In addition, the Fire and Extended Coverage held by Loyola University insures against vandalism. It is $100 deductible and covers any property belonging to the University. The extent of campus vandalism is exemplified by the shattered glass on the Coke machine, one of the many pieces of campus property destroyed by vandals. photo: Eddie Leckert Tuition hike may increase financial aid competition By Cheron Brylski An increase of tuition would increase the number of applicants for financial aid, and make it harder for some students to receive assistance, according to Dr. E.P. Seybold, Director of Financial Aid. "It is going to get harder for the school to have enough money because the money crunch is going to make more people interested," Seybold said. "When a student gives us an application, it means he wants money. On the basis of whether he needs it or not, it is our purpose to see what they qualify for. We don't ask the student to tell us what he wants, just let us know he has the want. We figure out how and if he can have aid, and what kind of aid he qualifies for. He is really at our mercy," he added. "Scholarships are generally awarded and based upon academic_superiority," Seybold said. Out of the $300,000 budget set aside for scholarships, a maximum of $600- $I,sooper year/student is awarded. A student's allotment will not rise because he has become an asset to the school. However, if the scholarship awarded was given on a trial basis, and that student has performed well, it may go up Types of financial aid are loans, grants and jobs, which are based on need and can be broken down into two categories: campus and non-campus based. Campus based aid is given according to how the finance department views the student's financial need. "The amount granted is the difference between what a student and his family can reasonably be expected to contribute and tuition costs," Seybold said. The parental contribution is usually determined according to their income taxes. Requirements for non-campus aid differ according to the source giving the aid. "The Basic Education Opportunity Grant (BEOG) has its own set of regulations and qualifications and they determine a student's eligibility and how much Loyola pays. Family income, size and assets are considered," Seybold said. "Non-campus loans are state guaranteed and federally insured, based upon need and family net income," he added. "Jobs offered are either through the work/study program or Loyola based and paid jobs. Out of the $229,000 budget set aside for work/study program, a maximum or $900 is set for each job per year. The loan program's budget is $500,000, which allots a maximum of $1,250 per year/loan, and grants allot a maximum of $1,400 per year/student out of its $40,000 bucTget. Another means of reducing tuition costs is whether or not a student has a brother or sister attending Loyola. A discount of $100 per semester/student is given. This situation would not make a student ineligible for further aid. Concerning the most frequent requests for aid, Seybold shared, "A lot of problems result when students, ask for aid because they have parental problems." If a student is legally a dependent (under 18, still living at home, or not supporting himself) he has to be classified as one and aid cannot be given just because of this type of situation." Although most of the financial aid and scholarships given originate in high school, it does not mean a student is ineligible for aid once h: gets in college. "Family circumstances do change and a student can then arrange for aid," Seybold concluded. Finance Director Dr. E.P. Seybold reviews financial aid requests for the spring semester. photo: Marta Trombino A Thanksgiving reminder Once again, November has rolled around, bringing thoughts of pilgrims, turkey dinners and a much needed vacation! Most resident students will be returning home to much-missed family and friends. Those who will be staying in the dorms can make the day special by treating themselves to a fancy Thanksgiving dinner at in. of the many famous Orleanian restaurants (Brennan's, Vendome, etc.), who will be offering special dinners for the day. Although many Loyola students are leaving today to begin their Thanksgiving holidays, the MAROON would like to remind students that November 24-28 are the official vacation dates, and students will be held responsible for days and materials misseu.
