union restriction policy
■ The new version of the
non-students may be voted
By Jessica Fargen
The Union Board may vote
tonight on a new, scaled down pro
posal for restricting non-students
from the Nebraska Union after 6
p.m., said Nebraska Unions Director
Swanson said he will recommend
that non-students be restricted from
only the new northwest study area
after 6 p.m. Sunday through
The Union Board delayed a possi
ble vote at its last meeting on a pro
posed policy that would restrict non
students after 6 p.m. in the northwest
study lounge, the Crib and unfinished
television lounge and billiard room in
Swanson said the new proposed
policy would create more of a study

television would continue be shut off

study places on this campus,” he said.

Union Board member makes a
motion to vote on it. Members can
make amendments to the new pro
posal, he said.
Swanson said achieving a more
study-friendly environment in the
lounge and the Crib was one reason
for the original policy. The new poli
cy lists just the northwest study
lounge as a restricted area.
Another area that was frequented
by non-students was the now-demol
ished arcade on the main level,
Swanson said. Prior to union renova
tions, some junior high students were
disruptive there, he said. After reno
vations, the arcade room and billiard
room will be in the basement.
Swanson said allowing non-stu
dents to monopolize the limited facil
ities of the billiard room at the
expense of fee-paying students is not
Since the last Union Board meet
ing, he said he has received little stu
dent feedback on the proposed policy.
Swanson said he and his staff
came up with the new proposal.
Several union staff members will
speak at the meeting.
“Union staff are the people who
have to confront the behavior (of
some non-students) ” he said. "My
staff on a daily basis is confronting
these behaviors by necessity - that is

to attend the 5:30 p.m. meeting today
in the Nebraska Union.

IT’S NOT EVERY DAY
A11 financial companies charge operating fees
A. JL and expenses — some more than others. Of
course, the lower the expenses you pay, the better.
That way, more of your money goes where it
should—towards building a comfortable future.
We make low expenses a top priority.
I As the largest retirement system in the
world'—a nonprofit company focused exclu
sively on the financial needs of the educational
and research communities — our expenses are
among the lowest in the insurance and mutual
In fact, TIAA-CREF’s 0.31% average fund
expenses are less than half of the expense charges
of comparable funds.3 It’s why Momingstar—
one of the nation s leading sources of annuity and
mutual fund information — says, “At that level
[TIAA-CREF] is cheaper than any other
[variable annuity] policy, and is even compet
itive with the cheapest mutual fund complexes,
though it offers far more benefits.”''
“TIAA-CREF sets the standard in the
financial services industry.”
Of course, expenses are only one factor to
consider when you make an investment decision.
Morningstar also noted our commitment to
"consumer education, service” and "solid
investment performance.” Because that can
make a difference in the long run, too.
At TIAA-CREF, we believe people would
like to spend more in retirement, not on their
retirement company. Today, over two million
people count on that approach to help them
build a comfortable and secure future. So
can you. To find out more, call us at
