The guide will be the result of research done by the Academic Affairs Committee. Young said, "The course evaluation has been considered for quite a few years, but it always met with opposition from the faculty." The request was tabled pending further discussion. SGA did allocate $1,000 to internal programming to cover their part of Fallfest. Fallfest, an afternoon of music and festivities, is being sponsored by the Loyola Union, the SGA, Hardee's and other campus organizations. This year's Fallfest is scheduled for Oct. 29. Also this week, the SGA chartered two organizations. Sigma Pi Sigma is a physics honor fraternity which was active a few years ago and is now looking for a renewed interest in membership. Delta Theta Phi, a law and pre-law professional fraternity was also chartered by the SGA. The SGA also inducted five new freshmen delegates into its congress this week. Sheila Earthman and Jeff "Gus" Griffin will represent the College of Business, and Guyleen Castriotta, Frank Llende, and John Guidry are the freshmen representatives for the College of Arts and Sciences. When questioned about his first reaction to his first SGA meeting, Griffin said it was "much more formal than I had expected, but it should be a very good year." Earthman said, "It was fun, I really expect good things to come out of the SGA this year." The other new delegates agreed with their colleagues in their views and expectations of the SGA's work this year. Alcohol abuse addressed by area universities By Andrew Moreau Staff Reporter Last of a Series Sixteen percent of college students drink ecessively, according to a survey published in the July 21 issue of The Chronicle of Higher Education. Universities in the New Orleans area have various views and policies regarding the use and abuse of alcohol. In an article accompanying the survey, Zoe Ingalls writes that universities across the nation are promoting "responsible drinking" programs for students. As reported last week in The Maroon, Loyola's alcohol policy focuses on the abuse, not use, of alcohol. Administrators on campus stress that students use alcohol responsibly. A similar emphasis is taken at other New Orleans area schools. Dr. Gary L. Fretwell, assistant dean of students at Tulane University, said Tulane tries "to stay away from a prohibitive approach to alcohol." Fretwell stresses the facts to the students "so they can make a responsible decision concerning alcohol." According to Fretwell, alcohol can either be sold or given away at university sponsored events and students are allowed to walk across campus with alcohol. He added that Tulane stresses that an alternative beverage be available at these events. At the University of New Orleans, alcohol can be sold and consumed only in the University Center, according to Dr. Edgar D. Burks, vice chancellor of Student Affairs. As at Tulane, alcohol is either sold or given away at university sponsored events. However, students are not allowed to carry it across campus. Burks said, "The key to our policy is that alcohol is sold under controlled conditions and dispensed by the University Food Center." Dr. Joseph Johnson, dean of students at Xavier University, said alcohol is not sold and is not allowed anywhere on campus. Occasional indoor parties with beer available are regulated by the University Center Advisory Board. Johnson added that the price per beer at these events is 25 cents and students are not allowed outside with it. Education has an important role in curbing alcohol problems on college campuses. The Chronicle survey showed that 68.5 percent of institutionsBill A rata takes advantage of this week's Pub specials —Photo by John Met usker See Alcohol /page 2 The Maroon will not publish next week due to the Octoberfest holiday and mid-term examinations.
