mitment to students and education, Hockaday
"The difference in her and other candidates had
to do with her experience internally in the college,
her relationship with students and her connection
immediately with the students here," Hockaday
Hartford immediately established her dedica-
tion to women and education with the board and
the students, Hockaday said, adding that Hartford
was among the first group of women admitted to
the University of North Carolina in the 1960s.
"She understands the importance of equal
opportunity for women in education," Hockaday
He also said Hartford's personality made her a
favorite. Hockaday called her "charming, quick to
smile and knows the right things to say."

"This has got to be one of the coolest

While students at Meredith are excited about
their new president members of the University
said it is a loss.
"I am deeply grateful to Maureen for the excep-
tional leadership she has provided to the
University, particularly to the Division of Student
Affairs, and for her wise counsel as an executive
officer' University President Lee Bollinger said.
"Maureen is a person of warmth, courage, and
integrity. As vice president for student affairs, she
has fulfilled her highest responsibility of being
acutely attuned to students' needs and concerns,"

he said.
Bollinger noted Hartford's achievements in new
programs such as the Center for Learning through
Community Service and the Michigan Leadership
Initiatives as well as her contributions to the liv-
ing-learning communities and the Program on
Intergroup Relations, Conflict and Community.
"I am absolutely delighted for Maureen and for
Meredith College, to which Maureen will
undoubtedly provide distinguished and compas-
sionate leadership," Bollinger said.
University spokesperson Julie Peterson said the

University's loss will be a gain for Meredith.
"I'm very pleased for Maureen, but we're going
to miss her dreadfully" said Peterson, who works
closely with the administration, adding that
Hartford's time at the University and her concern
for the welfare ofthe students has been widely rec-
"The students at Meredith will be very fortunate
to have her as their president," Peterson said.
Hartford has also been an integral part of shap-
ing the University Student Code of Conduct and
the University's Binge Drinking Task Force.
Before Meredith made its final choice, LSA
sophomore Brian Reich said Hartford's work with
the Code is going to be tough to duplicate.
Initially, students involved in the Code review did
not know what to expect from the administration,
Reich said, but Hartford was very approachable
and willing to listen to student suggestions.

By Rich Tucker
Daily Princetonian
PRINCETON - With four Public
Safety officers on scene, a group of
about 60 students got a chance to see
first-hand the extent of Princeton
University's resolve to end the Nude
Olympics in a forum Thursday night
sponsored by the Princeton undergradu-
ate student government and the Class of
Princeton University "President
(Harold) Shapiro is serious about stop-
ping any event of this nature, and the
trustees stand firmly behind him,"
Princeton Dean of Student Life Janina
Montero said. "The university's resolve
is entirely unambiguous."
In January, Shapiro asked Montero to
form a committee to review the events
of this and past years' Nude Olympics.
In the past few weeks, Montero's com-
mittee has engaged in "fact-finding"
and discussion about the various prob-
lems of this year's event.
Last night, the committee offered
students the opportunity to state their
opinions and ask questions about the
status of the Nude Olympics.
In responseto a question about the
punishments future participants could
face, Montero said she expected admin-
istrators to use "the full range of penal-
ties in the university," noting that a like-
ly punishment would be one year sus-
pension from the university.
"It's most likely the penalty will be
severe. The university would want to
respond promptly and firmly," she said.
Most students who spoke at the event
did not offer strong arguments in favor
of the Nude Olympics as it now exists.
But Princeton junior Al Walling said he
intends to run again next year. "Since
I've been here, Wednesday nights have
been taken away, Bicker's gone dry, and

now you want to take away my Nude
Olympics," he said. "I'm going to run
next year, so you better tell (Princeton)
Public Safety (officer's) to lay off the
doughnuts, because they're going to
have to catch me."
Rockefeller College Master Michael
Jennings responded, questioning why
some audience members applauded; in
agreement with Walling. "People need to
rethink their priorities," Jennings said..
Other students offered ways 'o
reform the Nude Olympics without
banning the event. Most focused on
limiting the amount of alcohol con-
sumed by participants. Princeton first-
year student Alex Wood suggested the
University attempt to revise the Nude
Olympics into a more positive, con-
trolled form. Dennis Puri, a Princeton
sophomore, suggested that Princeton
public safety officers be placed near
entryways and bathrooms for better
crowd control.
Despite these suggestions, Jennings
said he did not think it was possible to
separate alcohol from the-event.
"So we say we're going to prohibit'
alcohol at the Nude Olympics. I'm a
member of the faculty, I can say what,:
ever I want;' Jennings said. "Who's'
going to guarantee (Sigma Alpha.
Epsilon) is not going to run? Who's
going to guarantee Tiger Inn is not
going to run? Who's going to guarar-
tee the lacrosse team is not going to
Jennings said in an interview late-
last night that he named those student
groups to make a point.
"It's not a feasible option to think we
can have a Nude Olympics without
alcohol," he said. "Those happen to be
three definable institutions among otl
ers that have long histories of an
unhealthy relationship with alcohol."

Domestic violence "lives in our society, in our com-
munity," Chitanda said.
Williams, a member of the Comprehensive Studies
Program, wanted to attend law school after graduation.
Laconda Williams said the death of her sister is still
very tough to deal with. "It's hard for me when people
ask me questions about my sister, it hurts because we
were both really close,' she said.
"Kiera's birthday is next week ... she's doing OK,"
Laconda Williams said.
Laconda Williams said Kiera "asks about her every
once and a while but I tell her where her mother is.
"When she goes to bed she prays for her mother and
father who she knows are both in heaven," she said.
Kiera Williams' father was stabbed to death in
Detroit in 1996.
As police piece together the details of the final

moments of Qureshi and Groesbeck's lives, some in
the University community call the apparent murder-
suicide a case of domestic violence.
"In two years this is the second murder/homicide sit-
uation," Chitanda said, adding that "we need to contin-
ue to educate and provide information of where people
can go to get help before things get to this extent."
Vice President for Student Affairs Maureen
Hartford said that "it seems as if we have been through
multiple issues of student violences," adding that "any-
time this kind of issue arises with violence in relation-
ships, this triggers issues for others."
Members of Williams' family said it is difficult to
forget about the events of Sept. 23, 1997.
"The whole family misses her a lot, like I do,"
Laconda Williams said.
