Candidates avoid legal challenge More options for an Asian summer City Council hopefuls had faced lawsuits aiming to remove 16 candidates from ballot By ANTHONY CAMPISI Staff Writer campisi@sas.upenn.edu

U.S. Rep. Bob Brady isn’t the only one facing challenges to his candidacy in Philadelphia politics. The congressman-turnedmayoral candidate is currently facing an attempt by rivals Dwight Evans and Tom Knox to end h is c a nd id ac y over problems with his financialdisclosure forms. But many City Council candidates breathed a sigh of relief when they survived what was essentially the same legal action against them on Friday: City judges threw out most of the lawsuits seeking to remove 16 Council candidates from the ballot. All 10 district seats, as well

as the seven at-large seats are up for grabs this year, starting with the May 15 primary. At hearings last Friday, lawsuits against Council members Carol Ann Campbell, Frank DiCicco and Mar ian Tasco were thrown out for lack of ev idence, while challenges were withdrawn against Council President Anna Verna and Councilman Dan Savage . Several other candidacies were also challenged, w ith many of the challenges likely coming because incumbents were worried that candidates with the same name would accidentally steal votes. For example, at-large candidate Ben Ramos , a former city and state legislator and member of the Philadelphia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce ,

Calling Philadelphia politics “a contact sport,” he said that his legal opponents ran a shoddy effort against him. “They didn’t even properly ser ve the documents they were supposed to serve me,” Ramos said. While admitting that fighting legal challenges “takes t i me away f rom t he ca mpaign,” he said that his campaign was “doing better than I expected,” especially in appealing to “the Latino corridor” of the city. Milton Street , who was also unsuccessfully challenged, shares a name with another candidate as well, though in his case, that candidate is his nephew, Sharif Street . Milton Street, the erstwhile mayoral candidate, claimed that the challenge had been i n s t i g at e d b y h i s S h a r i f Street , who is Mayor John Street’s son.

students,” he added. And then, of course, there’s the added bonus of visiting various Olympic venues, including the Olympic Green. The program, designed by the Annenberg School for Communication, was finally authorized after a similar program for Graduate students was held in China last summer. CGS director Marni Baker Stein expects the program — run by the College of General Studies in conjunction with Peking University in Beijing — to facilitate “interesting conversation between faculty and students from Penn and Beijing.” And, apparently, this program is just what Penn students are looking for. College sophomore Maggie Howard, who went on a Princeton-run, language-intensive program in China last summer, said that, “from experience, Penn students always wished Penn had a summer program in China but, before this, [Penn] never did.” Also in East Asia, Penn, along with private Korean university Kyung Hee University, is offering KSLI, which will provide 25 full-expenses paid scholarships

to students to study in Suwon, South Korean. It was developed as part of the U.S. National Security Language Initiative, a U.S. government effort to increase the number of Americans proficient in widely spoken languages like Korean. Language Initiative officials chose Penn to administer the program because of its “excellence in Korean studies,” said KSLI director Milan Hejtmanek. It is also a “highly experimental immersion program,” said Hejtmanek, who is also a History professor at Penn. This program, too, has generated positive feedback among students. College and Wharton Sophomore Li Chen said that, as an International student from China, he thinks that “people usually know more about Europe than Asia, [but] I think the Asian programs are important.” Wharton freshman Vidyut Saraf pointed out, “At the end of the day, all of the Asian countries are on the rise in terms of economics and business. The more we know about all of the different countries, … the better we are for the future.”

In general, faculty agree that the biggest obstacle to attending the UC meetings is time. “It’s kind of juggling priorities,” said Nursing professor Barbara Riegel . “I love the dialogue; I just can’t fit it all in.” Marketing and Statistics professor Eric Bradlow added that his teaching commitments prevent him from attending the meetings. But, he said, the Faculty Senate meetings are much more “intimate” than the UC meetings, so he feels like he gets much more information there. “It’s essentially a matter of not being willing to devote all

Only 16 seats are allotted to students — 10 automatically go to the Undergraduate Assembly, and the other six are allocated to students groups who feel they are either misrepresented or underrepresented on campus. Those groups must apply for the seats through a rigorous process involving an interview with the Nominations and Elections Committee. “The allocation of the seats needs to be looked at again,” said College junior Kevin Rurak , the head of the Lambda Alliance. “There are undergraduate students who apply and want to be on [the UC] and would very likely be able to contribute.”

L’Oreal thinks Wharton is worth it. A t e a m of st udent s f r om Wharton West, the business school’s San Francisco branch , has advanced to the final round of L’Oreal’s e-Strat competition, which asks participants to play the role of a simulated cosmetics company’s general manager. Contestants are given the task of making professionallike decisions, ranging from setting hypothetical prices to conducting research. “The main goal is to communicate and demonstrate to as many students as possible the strength, the complexity and the dy namism of … the beaut y i ndust r y,” F ra ncois de Wazieres , vice president of Corporate Strategic Recruitment for L’Oreal USA, wrote in an e-mail. A nd of f icia ls at W ha r t on West , which of fers an MBA program and executive education, are excited at what the team’s success means for the school. “This is an example of how good our students are,” said Dean of W har ton West Len Lodish . The competition boasts 15,000 entrants worldwide, a number that has since been na r rowed to eight over the course of six grueling rounds. “It certainly can’t hurt to have students at Wharton West succeed so well in a very big competition,” Lodish said. Participating teams say the last round may prove to be the hardest yet. “Our goal is to present to the panel and tr y to sell our company,” said first-year MBA candidate Alice Zhang . “It’s kind of like The Apprentice,” she said. A nd that cha llenge, de Wazieres said, is part of the draw. “e-Strat gives … an unr ivaled learning opportunity to apply and challenge [students’] knowledge on critical business skills,” he said. And although Zhang agreed that business sk ills are important to her team’s accompl ish ment , she poi nted out that another factor has played a significant role in its success: diversity. The team’s three members, she said, hail from around the world — Loren Simon is from the United States, Bolaji Olutade is from Africa and Zhang is from China. “I feel we tr uly represent the diversity of a global company,” she said. “The mission of our company is to provide cosmetic products to the rest of the world.” The tea m represents t he compet it ion’s si x t h reg ion , wh ich i ncludes t he Un it ed States, Canada and Australia. Eight regions will send representatives to the final round in Paris . Before they return, the participants plan on taking full advantage of their chance to explore the fashion capital of the world. “My plan is to go shopping,” Zhang said. Simon added that he is looking forward to the opportunity to “just kind of hang out and relax and enjoy the city.” “It’s kind of like a little getaway,” Olutade added. The final stage of the competition will be held on April 18 , and the winning team will be announced the next day.

Chances narrowing for NCAA qualifiers With a few meets left, men’s and women’s track hoping for good weather, results By JOHN CESARINE Staff Writer cesarine@sas.upenn.edu

Both the Penn men’s and women’s track teams will be in action this weekend, but the teams will only share one thing in common. And if it’s not the venue, the objective or the opponents then what is it? The weather. Both teams are hoping that good old Mother Nature can give them a good weekend in order perform at their highest levels. The men’s team will compete in the Penn Quad, which will be held at Franklin Field tomorrow afternoon against Princeton, Villanova and Rutgers. Meanwhile, the women’s squad will be traveling down the road to Princeton, where it will take on the Tigers and Yale. Men’s coach Charlie Powell’s objective for the meet is to garner qualifying marks for IC4A and the NCAA regionals. “We are trying to get some quality performances in and we are getting at that time where we really need to get things in,” he said. Junior Tim Kaijala has already reached the qualifying mark in the 800-meter dash and sophomore Anthony Abitante has done the same with the pole

vault. Powell hopes many more of his athletes will be able to reach those marks. He mentioned Grafton Ifill , Joey Brown , John Guzman , Kyle Calvo , Andrew McMillen, Bryan Scotland and Chris Howell all as possible qualifiers after this weekend. The women, however, have a different goal to achieve this weekend. Their meet is a scoring one, and they are hoping to win it. “I want to win, period,” coach Gwen Harris said. The women’s team is striving to get as many qualifying marks as they can along the way, but that was hardly stressed by its coach. The one thing in both teams’ way, the weather, is considered the biggest obstacle by both coaches. “Every time we look at [the weather forecast] it changes,” Powell said. Harris said the same. “We have been having bad weather and some people take a little big longer than others to get going in this weather,” she said. And if the current forecast holds, both teams will have an uphill road to the qualifying marks and results they want to see.

Key to Dartmouth contest is winning at bottom of roster W. TENNIS from page 12 are some rumors Ko will miss the match for an international competition, but the Quakers (13-4, 3-0) are preparing for her nevertheless. “It would be exciting to see Kate play her,” coach Michael Dowd said. “Kate is looking forward to playing it. Their number two is a great player as well. Either way we are just looking for a win.” Even with the emphasis the team is putting on Harvard, it is not overlooking the Big Green either. The focus during the Harvard match will be on the No. 1 singles, but it will be on the opposite against Dartmouth. “Dartmouth’s strength is in their depth,” Dowd said. “If we win down low against Dartmouth I think we will win that match.” The biggest obstacle could be playing in Hanover at Gordon

Pavilion. “We expect them to be tough at their place,” Dowd said. “They’ve had some real big wins there.” The Big Green are 6-0 at home, but just 1-7 on the road. The Quakers will be without Maria Anismova and Michelle Mitchell . Anismova is under the weather, while Mitchell has been battling a shoulder injury. The team will instead look to Lauren Sadaka to continue her undefeated streak. She is 12-0 in singles this year. While the Quakers are favored in both matches, they aren’t assuming victory and focusing on celebrating. “A lot of people like to look at these indirect things to predict the match,” Rivelis said. “Bottom line is you come out that day, the ball is around and you never know which way its going to go. You just have to give it your best.”

W LAX: (6)PENN VS. (14)DARTMOUTH Tomorrow | Noon | Franklin Field

■ PLAYERS TO WATCH PENN Jr. GK Sarah Waxman Penn has allowed over six goals just three times this year, and a big part of that has been Waxman’s 5.64 goals-against average, second in the nation. And against a powerful team like Dartmouth, she will be on display even more. The Big Green nearly won the national championship last year, so they know how to run an offense — it’s just a matter of whether their open looks will find their way past Waxman and into the net or not.

DARTMOUTH Sr. D Margo Duke Dartmouth’s offense flows through Whitney Douthett and Sarah Szefi, who lead the team with 19 and 13 assists, respectively. But someone has to score the goals, and the 5-foot-5 Duke has been the Big Green’s sharpshooter with 16 goals on just 29 shots. Against a stingy team like Penn, Dartmouth has to make its chances count or risk becoming the next in a long line of the Quakers’ victims this year. Not to mention losing their first game to Penn since 1991.

— who are undefeated at home — are thrilled to be playing in Philadelphia. “We love playing here,” she said. “The Final Four is here, so we want to play as much as we can at home.” Even though most of the Quakers were still in preschool when the Red and Blue last topped Dartmouth, this season’s success so far has given them more confidence heading into the matchup against the Big Green than Penn has had in years past. As a result, senior attacker Chrissy Muller believes that Penn will be ready to play. “When our seasons weren’t going as well before, it would take us a good 10 minutes and a timeout to see that we could play [with Dartmouth],” she said. “This whole season we’ve been coming out strong, so I think [tomorrow] won’t be any different.” If Penn can get past Dartmouth, its final true test will come Wednesday against No. 13 Princeton, which is now tied for second place with the Big Green.

Junior Kristen Barry has been the most prolific goal scorer for the defensive-minded Big Green and is coming off a career high six-goal outburst against Cornell. While Dartmouth’s scoring defense ranks 12th nationally, it is still not quite up to Penn’s thirdranked unit, which surrendered fewer than seven goals per game over its recent road tilt. And after cruising past their opponents away from home, Penn now returns to Franklin Field for the first time in several weeks. “It’s a big challenge for us to play Penn at their place,” PatRyan Townsend/DP Staff Photographer ton said.

just hoping that they can play the way they did to open the Princeton game, and to close the way they did in the Dartmouth win, when they overcame a four-goal deficit to win by one. “We’re just too hot and cold, and when we’re cold we’re very cold, especially on defense,” junior defender Max Mauro said. “It’s hard to make excuses about our play. It’s easy to say we’re young, and it’s easy to say that we don’t have all the experience, it’s just a matter of people having enough heart, enough pride in Penn to play for 60 minutes.” Mauro helps anchor a defense that looked like that of a top-10 team early on before it lost both its aggressiveness and its coordination.

“The first thing you learn when you play defense is communication, and we’re not communicating enough,” Mauro said. “When we played well in the past this season, we were communicating, everybody’s talking, has their sticks up on defense. It’s just those small things. It’s not players playing individually, it’s team communication.” So despite missing a key social weekend at Penn, Mauro is looking forward to putting together a complete game and taking his team’s league record to 3-3. “I’d definitely much rather be playing in an Ivy League game on Saturday than trying to make my way through a crowd of people to see a band from 1995,” he said.

PENN Sr. Defender Matt Kelleher Having lost three out of the last four games — all of them Ivy matchups — the Quakers will have to rely on Kelleher and the youthful defensive core behind him to pick themselves up again. One of the team leaders in ground balls, Kelleher will be looked upon to direct the backfield and help take the pressure off of freshman goalkeeper Chris Casey, whose paltry .488 save percentage has been due mainly to ineffective Penn defense.

BROWN Sr. Attacker David Madeira The Bears’ veteran on the attack has taken nicely to the leadership role he has been asked to assume this season, having already 19 goals this year, good for best on the team and second in the Ivy League. With a solid .413 shooting percentage, the reigning Honorable Mention all-Ivy selection is apt to give the Penn defense fits. The one knock on Madeira is that he isn’t the passer that other leading Ivy attackers have proven to be.

■ TEAM STATISTICS

Grind it out on the faceoffs. This isn’t Penn’s bread-and-butter, but Justin Lynch may be able to dominate the Bears in that respect — they have won a mere 38.3 percent of faceoffs this season. Penn, keep Brown away from the goal. The veteran-rookie combination of Madeira and freshman Thomas Muldoon up front has proven deadly for opposing defenses thus far this season. Get on your knees and pray. Each team needs some serious help for a shot at a postseason spot. At least for the Quakers, a loss will put the final nail in the coffin.

The Big Green (15-3, 1-1 ), despite having an impressive overall record, remain under

Meeting continued from page 1

The new system will ask professors to fill out course objectives at the beginning of the semester and ask students a seriesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; of questions at the end of the semester that will assess how well theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned the material. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This informational forum will force us to identify specifically what our course objectives are,â&#x20AC;? Formanowicz said. After faculty members deliver feedback on the new system, the ad hoc committee will compile a report and submit it to the Office of the Provost, Formanowicz said. Wednesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting sparked a lengthy discussion about the new system. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never correlated our student surveys on teaching with anything at all,â&#x20AC;? philosophy associate professor Lewis Baker said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That means they mean nothing.â&#x20AC;? Mechanical engineering professor David Hullender supports

the new system. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very well done,â&#x20AC;? he said to senate members. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just fear that faculty will look at that and see how theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be rated down if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not living up to what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re supposed to.â&#x20AC;? Electrical engineering professor Kambiz Alavi pointed out that the current system simply serves as a way for students to â&#x20AC;&#x153;ventâ&#x20AC;? at the end of the semester. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help professors to make any corrective action during the semester,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully this will raise the consciousness of the deans, chairmen and students that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all concerned about quality.â&#x20AC;? President James Spaniolo and interim Provost Ron Elsenbaumer delivered an update on campus news to senate members as well. They touched on natural gas drilling on the southeast end of campus, the search for a new provost and the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tuition proposal to the UT System Board of Regents next week.

Herrera said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want my kids to enjoy the same greenery that I have in the future.â&#x20AC;? Bryon Haney, Fort Worth Sierra Club vice president and sustainability sub-committee member, asked why so many people are willing to waste more time studying global warming when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a problem that society needs to be addressed. Holbrook said there are numerous issues that have outshadowed global warming. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to get that at the top of the list,â&#x20AC;? Holbrook said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has to displace a lot of other things to get some action.â&#x20AC;?

Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Community Affairs Committee meeting killed the resolution â&#x20AC;&#x153;Get Out Da Way,â&#x20AC;? asking for designated areas for contractor and university vehicles to park during construction. The resolution said vehicles blocked curb areas and access

paths for people with disabilities, making it harder for them to maneuver between buildings. It was killed because Facilities Management informed senators that designated parking areas were already established. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This resolution is asking for something thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already there,â&#x20AC;? said Frank Perera, engineering senator and Community Affairs chair. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It just needs to be enforced.â&#x20AC;? The fountain revamp resolution was approved unanimously by the Community Affairs com-

mittee after members learned through research that Facilities Management agreed a revamp was necessary. A list of foundation upgrades and new pumps installed by Facilities Management convinced the committee the resolution should be passed, and it was approved unanimously. The last SC general body meeting of the semester is 6 p.m. Tuesday. Julie Ann Sanchez

Students push for more weapons on campuses THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN MARCOS, Texas — When it comes to college campus safety, Mike Guzman and thousands of other students around the country say they want more guns in the classrooms and on the quads of public universities. Guzman, an economics major at Texas State University-San Marcos, is among 8,000 students nationwide who have joined the non-partisan Students for Concealed Carry on Campus, arguing that students and faculty al-

ready licensed to carry concealed weapons should be allowed to pack heat along with their Riverside Shakespeare and macroeconomics texts. “It’s the basic right of self defense,” said Guzman, a 23year-old former Marine. “Here on campus, we don’t have that right, that right of self defense.” Every state but Illinois and Wisconsin allows residents some form of concealed handgun carrying rights, with 36 states issuing permits to most everyone who meets licensing

criteria. The precise standards vary from state to state, but most states require an applicant to be at least 21 and to complete formal instruction on use of force. Many states forbid licenseholders from carrying weapons on school campuses, and in states where the decision is left to the universities, schools almost always prohibit it. Utah is the only state that expressly allows students to carry concealed weapons on campus. College campuses are different than other public places

where concealed weapons are allowed. Thousands of young adults are living in close quarters, facing heavy academic and social pressure — including experimenting with drugs and alcohol — in their first years away from home. W. Gerald Massengill, the chairman of the independent panel that investigated the Virginia Tech shootings, said those concerns outweigh the argument that gun-wielding students could have reduced the number of fatalities inflicted by someone like Tech

gunman Seung-Hui Cho. “I’m a strong supporter of the Second Amendment,” said Massengill, a former head of the Virginia state police. “But our society has changed, and there are some environments where common sense tells us that it’s just not a good idea to have guns available.” Besides, campus safety concerns cannot be addressed by adding more guns to campuses, said Peter Hamm, a spokesman for the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. “If there’s more we need to

do, we certainly need to do that, but introducing random access to firearms is not the solution,” said Hamm. “You introduce more guns into a crowded environment ... you have more victims, not fewer victims,” he said. But advocates like Guzman disagree. The movement was launched by a University of North Texas student after the April massacre at Virginia Tech, where Cho shot to death 32 people on campus before killing himself.

Some can’t make it back for Thanksgiving BY CORRETTA KING AND EBONY EVANS The Shorthorn staff

During the holiday, a roundtrip ticket to travel 1,540 miles on American Airlines can cost $189, causing some students to miss the tradition of seeing Dad carve the turkey or watching the football game on Thanksgiving with him. The campus will be closed Thursday and Friday but will still have a number of students roaming as if class was in session.

District 5 Councilwoman Lana Wolff comments on the proposed Maverick Place apartments Tuesday night in Arlington City Council Chambers. The proposed complex would be located on Benge Drive, near Centennial Court apartments and about five minutes from campus.

The Rev. Greg Deering said the property was sold contingent on the Council’s approval. He said three companies had approached the church about selling the land, which was not up for sale but was being used for church picnics and cookouts. “We had the largest tract of land closest to the university that didn’t have anything on it,” he said. “Some of the houses in the area need to be upgraded, and we’re hoping the complex will challenge others to spruce up their property as well.” The complex will feature a fitness center, computer lab, game room and pool, according to documents submitted to the city. The one-, two- and four-bedroom units will be fully furnished, complete with washers and dryers. In a letter of support, John

calls and routinely managing the complexes. “We’re performing the duties and responsibilities of a typical landlord,” he said. The university has no set demolition date. Tenants cannot sign new leases, he said. “When the leases are up, we’ll work with the tenants and provide them with plenty of notice,” he said. Along with enhancing the university’s edge, the green space on the eastern part of campus contributes to the Center Street trail system, an Arlington-funded project that will provide a pedestrian walkway from Johnson Creek to Randol Mill

Hall, administration and campus operations vice president, said the project looks attractive and would be a “nice” addition to the area. The Arlington Independent School District strongly opposes the zoning change, citing that Wood Elementary School, Boles Junior High School and Martin High School would be impacted. In a letter of opposition, AISD Deputy Superintendent Jerry McCullough stated that the schools are built based on projections for new student populations, which are determined by zoning at that time. “The elementary school is currently over capacity, and even though the junior high school and high school are presently under capacity, we feel this zoning change will have a negative affect in the years to come,” McCullough wrote. Clifford Mycoskie, Maverick Place landscape architect, said at the meeting that the pro-

posed complex wouldn’t house tenants under age 17. District 2 councilwoman Sheri Capehart said that while she is excited about the proposed complex, she thinks the city needs a different zoning classification that’s specific to student housing. She said another apartment complex under construction on Pecan Street is intended to attract university students. “Private student housing development is great for the university because it allows the university to spend more of its resources on academic buildings,” Capehart said at the afternoon meeting. In other business, the Council approved five resolutions that open up gas and oil lease bids on city property. Those tracts include the Trinity River Trail, Helen Wessler Park, Burl L. Wilkes Park and Carl Knox Jr. Park.

steps within the project, Peterson said. Goldberg invented complicated processes to accomplish minimal tasks with a comedic twist. The students worked in teams and each had a theme. Civil engineering junior Josh Kirby, who was on Ofugara’s

team, said the hardest part of the project emerged when he had to cut each piece of wood with a 50-year-old rusted saw. The group made each intricate piece by hand, he said. The Engineering Department also participated in OneBook

Road and the revitalized downtown Arlington. Hall said the university-owned 7-Eleven convenience store on Center and Second streets will also contribute to the Center Street trail after its lease expires in three years. “The green space will create a place for students to hang out and relax,” he said. Maggie Campbell, Downtown Arlington Management Corp. president, said the trail connects the core of downtown Arlington to local neighborhoods. “The students at UTA are a big part of that neighborhood,” she said. “The university is a major partner in making the trail system attractive to students.” The green space serves another dual purpose for the city and university — sustainability. The additional park for

students follows the university’s Campus Master Plan in eliminating “gray” space and creating a more environmentally friendly campus, Hall said. He said the park is in its early planning stages and may include an oval lawn set against a backdrop of trees. Designers are toying with the ideas of two stages on each side of the lawn or a single stage on one side. The university recently received approval from the UT System Board of Regents to purchase another apartment complex to extend student parking — the Alpha Delta apartments on Second and Third streets. Hall said the transaction should be finalized in the next few weeks.

To make up the surface parking lost to construction, Tillerson said the university is in the process of purchasing Alpha Delta apartments, which would be leveled to extend Lot 43 near Pecan and Second streets. He also updated students about a five-story parking garage that will be built on Lot 49. Tillerson said university police have been involved with plans concerning security booths, double-rail lighting and eliminating nooks and crannies within the building. The garage would add 1,449 parking spaces to the campus and is slated to be

class tests. “For Thanksgiving, my roommates will go to the mall,” Raman said. “In India, Thanksgiving is not celebrated so much.” Eneida Derdishi, finance freshman from Albania, said round-trip tickets will cost her $1,200, which is too much for her to go home for the holiday. “It takes 10-11 hours on one plane to go home,” she said. “I will spend it with my boyfriend and his family.” Though distance is usually the reason for students not going home for the holidays, marketing sophomore Janis Echols from Waco went home in the past for the holidays, but this Thanksgiving her family will

spend it with her oldest brother in Arlington. “I’d rather go back home to Waco, but my parents decided to come down here,” Echols said. “This is something different, but I am happy because I will be with my family for Thanksgiving.” Even though airfare during the holidays will still be almost $200, students that don’t get to go home still hope to in the holidays to come. “Hopefully I will go home for Christmas,” Derdishi said. “This is my first time being away from home.”

completed in summer 2009, he said. Engineering senator Frank Perera brought up lack of parking for engineering students on the north side of campus, adding that engineering students have to share a lot with the Social Work Building and staff. “It looks like we have a lot of short-term plans, but we’re not looking for long-term,” Perera said. Tillerson said he understood students’ dismay but that there is parking, just not where students want it to be. “That is something you just have to get used to,” he said. For the parking shortage, Tillerson said the university is looking to expand its shuttle bus services and possibly make shorter routes that intertwine.

Engineering senator Swapnil Sharma said shuttle buses are not up to par for students who use wheelchairs. Tillerson said budget issues are the concern and that with a budget around $900,000, an efficient shuttle for students with disabilities costs a minimum of $180,000. A Handi-Tran system, that would setup appointments for shuttle pick-up, could be a program university police are looking into, he said. After the meeting, Tillerson said parking-permit prices are a bargain compared to other universities in the state. “We want to stay at the lower end,” he said. “But we realize parking is always going to be an issue.”

last fall, creating kites when freshmen English students read Kite Runner, said Laurin Porter, English professor and OneBook program co-chair. “I find that wonderful because that’s exactly how we want the program to function,”

Porter said. She said the freshman program has two objectives. Primarily, it creates a sense of unity among freshmen giving each class its own identity. Secondly, the program applies to all departments.

“Every department can find something of interest in the program,” Porter said. “The engineering class is a great example.” EMILY TOMAN news-editor.shorthorn@uta.edu
