New UGLi lounge

LSA grapples with
By ROSE MARY WUMMEL
After a four-month delay, the
new UGLi lounge is almost ready
to offer hungry students a place- to
take a study break.
The lounge was originally
proposed in October, 1985 after the
UGLi's fourth floor lounge was
replaced by a microcomputing cen -
ter in 1984.
The renovation, at first expected.
to be completed by September,
1986, will be finished within the
next two weeks.
for Student Services Henry Johnson
said the lounge's original renova -
tion schedule was unrealistic.
Construction of a bench and the
delivery of vending machine parts
has been behind schedule.
Johnson added that the renova -
tion's original cost estimate,
$25,000 -27,000, was accurate.
Most of the study lounge is now
complete. It boasts modular chairs,
circular tables, new wall paper, and
a built-in bench that spans the
width of the lounge.
THE LOUNGE already houses
the UGLi's current newspapers and
a fiction book rack. It will also
contain a board for students to leave
messages to friends. And for people
who wish to enjoy the lounge late
into the night, the UGLi offers the
advantages of SAFEWALK, the
campus-wide escort service.
The biggest attraction for hungry
students will be the installation of
soda, hot drink, and candy machines
which will mark the final step in
the renovation project.
Barbara MacAdam, an associate
librarian in charge of the redecora -
tion, feels a place where students
can legally snack will prevent them
from taking food and drink into the
THE LOUNGE is also
expected to minimize the UGLi's
problems with noise and social -
izing. Ellen Mudler, an LSA
junior, predicted the lounge "will
keep socializing away from study
areas and centralize it."
But LSA freshman Pam Cannon
disagreed, saying the new lounge
"will probably make the UGLi even
The creation of the lounge is one

renovation project for the entire
building begun three years ago by
library director David Norden. "The
library is making a serious
commitment to the quality of
student life," said MacAdam. "The
lounge is just the beginning of an
ongoing project to meet students'

however, caused problems. The
additional lighting on the first floor
has left three-fourths of the
basement without lights for the
past few days.
An emergency lighting system
has made it possible for students to
strain their eyes and search for
books, but studying in any of the
basement's study lounges has been
Officials believe the problem has
been caused by a malfunctioning
transformer. The UGLi is 30-years-
old, making repairs more time
consuming than for newer build -
ings. The staff hopes repairs will be
complete early this week.
The UGLi lounge will be open
during regular library hours and the
vending machines will be operable
for approximately 10 hours each
day. A student monitor will guard
the area, ensuring that food and
drink remain in the lounge.

According to Cather, the new
chemistry building is being erected
primarily because quality facilities
are important for attracting top
scientists to the University. "We've
had limitations in lab facilities and
we've been underfunded over the
years, which caused us to fall
behind in teaching undergraduates,"
The ultimate problem facing
both departments over the years has
been underfunding. The University,
during the recession of the late
1970s and early 1980s, targeted the
natural sciences for heavy budget
cuts at a time when the disciplines
needed funds to renovate and
The recessionary cutbacks forced
the departments to lay off more of
their already depleted faculty. Said
Cather, "We need more people in
the departments - Chemistry in
particular - because our faculty
does a lot of teaching. We need to
hire more faculty."
Last year, to help alleviate this
problem, the University granted
both the Chemistry and Physics
departments $500,000 - over their
normal budgets - to hire new
faculty, improve support services,
agencies to fund research projects,"
