A FACELIFT FOR THE DORMS Students moving into
Siddall Hall will enjoy renovations worth $750,000. The changes
include new lighting, beds, desks, wardrobes and dressers. Every
dorm also has a big screen TV and new microwaves on every floor.
Residence life area coordinator Dawn Wilson says the Daniels Hall
lobby is also being renovated. That project includes new
lighting, furniture, wall coverings and new carpet.
CAMPUS DEBIT CARD Beginning this fall, UC students
can turn their student IDs into a debit card to pay for meal
plans, laundry and vending machines in the residence halls and
items at the bookstores. The debit card will be called the
Bearcat Campus Card, and it works in a similar fashion to bank
debit cards. Students fill out a registration and deposit money
at bookstore locations. The convenience means students won't have
to carry so much cash or scramble to find change for laundry and
CAMPUS DRIVE-IN Friday Night Live, UC's initiative
to provide free entertainment in an alcohol-free setting on
campus, celebrates its first anniversary with a "drive-in" movie.
Students will not need their cars when they "pull in" at Sigma
Sigma Commons Friday, Sept. 22, 8-11 p.m., however, they'll find
the drive-in speaker setup, the big screen and free snacks and
soft drinks. The movie, "Any Given Sunday," starring Al Pacino,
will be the main feature.
SENIORS GET SET TO START YEAR OF JOB-HUNTING The
first day of classes at UC will also be the first day of job
hunting for seniors graduating in spring 2001. UC's Career
Development Center will start the seniors off with its "Senior
Year Reception" under a big-top tent on McMicken Commons from 11
a.m.-3 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 20. In addition to getting linked
up with corporate recruiters, students will enjoy a variety of
games. Activities include a money booth (whirlwind style), paper
airplane contests, and remote-controlled car races. More
information is at the Career Development web site.
