money was put in," said Myers, an Director of University Housing
LSA junior.

Housing officials recommended
the University sell Oxford in 1997
but the University Board of
"Regents, though it debated the
issue, never reached a consensus on
the residence hall's status.
Oxford resident Melanie
Rausche, who presented the resolu-
tion to RHA, argued that while the
University continues to discuss the
issue, Housing should not stop
maintenance of the hall.
"For a long time, Housing has

been talking about selling Oxford,"
said Rausche, an LSA senior.
"We need to have some money to
go into the building as long as we're
living there."
Rausche said the hall's deficient
laundry facilities and lack of entree
plus options are particularly egre-
gious problems with the quality of
Oxford.
Zeller said Housing will create a
task-force to make a final recom-

mendation as to the fate of Oxford
in the coming months. He said a
decision should come before fall.
But RHA Rep. Nathan McCoy, an
LSA junior, said Oxford residents
are looking for answers to their liv-
ing problems.
"We're trying to accomplish two
things," McCoy said.
"We want an answer on the future
of Oxford and we want to raise the
standard of living."'

it, you can't expect all of us to graduate with a .5
ointment every semester."
Sylvia Orduflo, a GEO steering committee member,
said the University's proposal will not really benefit
GEO members.
"I'm concerned that, for example, we will have to
teach an extra (discussion) section," Orduijo said.
She added that if the University does not want GSIs
to do more work, it should specify this in GEO's con-
tract.
Smith said the University is not going in the right
direction with its wage proposal since it did not offer

GSIs a wage increase.
He added that because GSIs receive the same wage
increase as the faculty each year, the University should
use the faculty's raise as a floor for GEO wage increas-
es.
GEO is currently guaranteed a 2.5 percent annual
increase, 0.5 percent less than the University is obligat-
ed to pay all of its other unions, Smith said.
Gamble said while GEO's wage increase is less than
other University unions, it is the only organization that
receives the same wage as the faculty.
"Even if the faculty got a 5 percent increase, all the
other unions would get exactly 3 percent," Gamble said.
"GEO would receive the 5 percent increase, though,
because it is tied to the union."

"We spent a significant amount of the athletic

behold, 10 months later they rose prices to raise the
reserve even though we've yet to sit down and examine
what was the impact.
"I haven't seen a report saying whether they haven't

said last week.
Brandon said if the Athletic Department needs addi-
tional revenue, it is not being unreasonable if it raises
ticket prices.
"When Tom looks at his overall budget he needs to
maximize the opportunities with those sports like foot-
ball that generate capital and spread that capital around
to the majority of sports that lose money," Brandon said.
"I don't have a problem raising ticket prices to schools
comparable to us.
"I don't think there's a place you can go on a Saturday
afternoon that puts on a better show than we do here," he
said.
