“We want to know how students
feel about this,” Fuchs said. “It’s
their election.” ^ •
Fuchs said the survey asks stu

bad about the party system. It also
asks students if they feel they

the pros and cons of having a party

“Elections would be confusing if
you don’t have set parties.”
Rost said by having a party sys

“A lot of students don’t care
who is elected,” R.ussell said.
“Many students vote on party lines

Fuchs said the Electoral

the election process more simple.

The computers are no longer
In an effort to keep room and
board fees down, outdated commu

all but the top two floors of both
buildings. Cather and Pound had
previously been the only residence
halls on campus with computers on

Alyson Stein, a junior English
major and Cather resident, was
against the removal of the commu
“The computers were outdated,
but the Microsoft Word was effi

Stein also said she wondered
where the laser printers went that
had been in each floor’s computer
Doug Zatechka, director of
housing, said most of the laser
printers were becoming obsolete,
and the few that were working were
spread throughout other computer
Glenn Gray, Cather, Pound and
Neihardt residence director, said
housing administrators knew last
year either the computers would
need to be replaced or the labs
would need to be closed.
“A year ago we faced the reality
that the existing labs were becom

Gray said it would cost between
$20,000 and $100,000 to update
the labs. Students would have paid
for the updates with their room and

with an astonishing amount,” Gray

Gray said he had only one com

editorial major and Pound resident
said he didn’t see the removal of th<
computers as a big deal.
“The computers were getting
old and outdated. They would loci
