Opening day. for North
Campus eatery delayed
By THOMAS HRACH
Engineering students who make the trek to North Cam-
pus for classes will finally get a place to eat - a few weeks
late, that is.
The Common Denominator, the new snack bar under
construction in the lower level of the North Campus
Commons building, was scheduled to open when students
arrived in September, according to Commons Facilities
,Assistant Molly Friedrichs. But construction delays for-
ced University officials to push back the opening until
THE SNACK BAR, which is scheduled to open Oct. 17,
will serve sandwiches, soups. and salads and will provide
seats for either eating or studying. "Our goal was to have
inexpensive hand-hold foods which can easily be eaten
between classes," Friedrichs said.
The University began renovating the lower floor of the
commons building for the snack bar in June because of the
recent move of two more engineering departments to Nor-
The move has brought an additional 1,300 students from
Central Campus, many of whom cannot eat in Bursley's
cafeteria because they do not have University meal con-
OLF tracts. The only other cafeteria area on North Campus is
in the art school.
WHILE THE commons building already houses a
restaurant on its upper floor, University officials have
noted that the restaurant's limited and more expensive
menu does not attract many students.
The renovations will cost the University an estimated
$350,000, which will come from University funds
designated for North Campus improvements.
In addition to some structural changes, the money will
provide for "butcher-block" tables and new carpeting.
THE COMMONS building lower level also will contain
a new copying center, The Clone Booth, and continue to
house the University Cellar's North Campus store.
Engineering students who have classes on North Cam-
pus said they were pleased the University is providing a
convenient place to eat, despite the $350,000 in renovation
"I'm not sure, the new snack bar is worth spending a lot
of money on," said engineering junior Rick McKenna.
"But certainly there's a real need for it."
Bradley Moore, a graduate student in the architecture
school, designed the snack bar and engineering graduate
student Michael Call named the eatery in a contest this

Engineering students will finally have some "food for thought" when construction of the North Campus snack bar is
completed this month. The eatery's opening, initially scheduled for September, has been delayed until Oct. 17
Student apathy hurts Project Community
By PAMELA MAHONEY
A University program that urges
volunteers to "Have a Heart - Lend a
Hand" is suffering from a lack of
Project Community, which offers
students academic credit for com-
munity sevice jobs attracted only 248
participants this term compared to ap-
proximately 275 volunteers winter
term, according to director Jeffrey
INITIATED by student activists
during the 1960s, Project Community
offers jobs in areas ranging from
prison-inmate projects to consumer
But times have changed, and so have
students. Fewer are as willing to trade
their time for academic credit because
many already have paying jobs.
"Students are finding it necessary to
take on jobs and no longer have the
time it takes to be involved in the
project," Howard said.
STUDENTS today also concentrate
on activities they think will prepare
them for graduate school or a job,
Howard said. "Ironically, they don't
see it (Project Community) as the op-
portunity it is to help them with their
goals," he said.
Student coordinator Phyllis Zarron,
an .LSA junior, said she feels many
students don't perceive Project Com-
munity as a pre-professional program
because it does not fit the traditional,
conservative classroom image.
"They may be concerned that it won't
look as good as an 'academic' class on a
transcript," she said.
HOWARD SAID that enrollment
statistics back up the idea that students
want work they can include on a
resume - the most popular programs
are those related to the medical or legal
fields. These programs showed no
decrease in the number of participants,
The drop in student participation
may be evidence that Project Com-
munity needs to look for new and dif-
ferent projects to atract student atten-
tion, said Howard, who has been the
program's director for six weeks.
Howard said that he is optimistic he
will be able to increase the number of
volunteers in Project Community win-
