Residents of University Terrace,
a University-owned housing
complex for graduate students,
will be watching and waiting this
fall as the planned destruction of
their homes draws closer. But
residents say they will plan
militant opposition if University
Hospital attempts to expand onto
"I would hope that if the hospital
made moves to tear down the
building, the residents would be
militant about moving out," said
Gerald Huntley, a resident and
member of the University Terrace
David Foulke, associate director
of University's housing, said,
"The Terrace land has already
been identified as a site for future
hospital expansion, though no
actions will be taken in the
immediate future, specifically
before July 1987."
The 40-year-old apartments are
adjacent to the Nichols Arboretum
and-the new University Hospital.
Single and married graduate
students living in the efficiency
and one-bedroom apartments pay
between $237.00 and $333.00 per
month in rent.
According to the housing office,
current Terrace leases are
effective until July 1987, making
the destruction of the buildings in
the immediate future unlikely.
A 10-year plan for medical
campus expansion written in 1980
states that the Nichols Arboretum
and the nearby cemetery, valley
and river are off-limits to
hospital expansion. University
Terrace sits on the only available
In the late 1960's, two of the
Terrace buildings were torn
down and replaced with a
parking structure. " Recently, the
new hospital took over two more
Terrace buildings to house an
According to University Terrace
resident Angela Hinz, "Half our
parking spaces were taken away
and are used for the clinic's
patients, who were given parking
stickers which permit them to
park in what used to be our
Leroy Williams, director of
housing information, said it was
necessary to give all but 89 of the
Terrace's parking spaces to the
hospital last spring. The
residents living in the complex in
June were guaranteed parking
spaces in June. Since then, leases
for new residents have not
guaranteed parking spaces.
Williams said many single
graduate students who live in the
complex do not own cars so they
Any expansion onto Terrace
space would be used for additional
parking, possibly a structure
identical to the one which has
already been built, Foulke said.
He also said thatthe removal of
approximately two buildings
would be sufficient for a new
parking structure. Those buil-
dings could include one or both of
the buildings presently being
used by the hospital, he said.
Last spring, Terrace residents
picketed the dedication of the new
University Hospital because
expansions claimed 40 of the
complex's parking spaces.
Residents of the complex have
formed the University Terrace
Solidarity Committee to protest
the destruction of the complex..
"Reducing the total family
housing community is uncon-'
scionable," said Angela Hinz, a
coordinator for the group.
Without a proposal to replace the
housing, the students would be
forced to find off-campus
housing, which costs 30 to 40
percent more, Hinz said.
Many upperclassmen claim
they have no problem picking a
freshman face out of the crowd.
"kind of a big sport. You see them
and you smirk 'Aahhh, a
freshmen.' It's just something
you smile at. Maybe you see
yourself and relate," said Pete.
"Being a senior, I can tell
(who's a freshman) better than
last year. (Freshmen) seem
smaller. They're looking around
at everything. Their eyes are
going, checking out all the people.
They look new," he said.
"The (freshmen) girls all have
the same haircut," said Lauren, a
sophomore. "It's all in the facial
expression. They look like they
just don't know what they're
doing. They look around a lot."
Edward, a junior, says he has
an easy method for freshmen-
detecting. "In classes, you
always know if there's a
freshman. When they get their
first handouts, they stare at them
and ask all those stupid questios
like 'What's due tomorrow?"'
Carrying a map is another,
dead giveaway. Though map
carriers could easily be transfe
students or cartographers, most
students automatically assume
the culprits are freshman. One.
freshman even labelled map
carrying as "a little too obvious."
At least one student, however,
took an egalitarian attitude.
Refusing to join in the freshman
bashing, he said, "I can't tell the
difference. All students look' the
