Honors housing
to expand next
academic year

Ole time groomery

By Sana Danish
Daily Staff Reporter
Students wanting to live in honors
housing next year may find it easier to
do so with a proposed expansion of the
program. According to the plan, hon-
ors housing, which currently compris-
es four floors of the east wing of South
Quad Residence Hall, would expand to
itde three additional floors.
"In the past, we've been the only
Michigan Learning Community not to
have enough space for all of our enter-
ing class," said Donna Wessel Walker,
Honors Program assistant director.
"We're trying to build the program and
increase the quality of our communi-
ty."
Wessel Walker said that with the
aton of three floors, the number of
st'ents in honors housing is expected
to increase to 500 students from the
current number of 225.
Honors housing was consolidated
in South Quad in the mid-1990s.
Wessel Walker said before that hon-
ors housing was "located in specific
corridors in disparate residence halls
across campus."
She said in the last three years the
return rate for freshmen had been
h*, with more than 20 percent of stu-
dents wanting to live in honors hous-
ing a second year.
Rachel Robinson, an LSA freshman
who plans to continue living in honors
housing next year, said she thought the
experience may change for her if there
was an expansion.
"One of the nice things about hon-
ors housing is that it's a small commu-

nity," she said. "I don't know if
expanding it, even though it's only
three floors, will change that."
LSA freshman and honors housing
resident Jonathon Kirley said he was
looking forward to the expansion. "As
long as there's a lot of returning sopho-
mores I think it'll be fun," he said.
Students who currently live on the
floors of the proposed expansion
expressed mixed reactions.
LSA freshman Jonathan Irwin said
his plans were not really disrupted by
the change.
"It wasn't very imperative for me to
live in the same hall or room because I
want to live in a single next year,"
Irwin said.
Irwin's roommate Mike Oh, an LSA
freshman, said the expansion would
limit housing options in South Quad.
"I won't be able to request my room
back because honors housing is
expanding," Oh said. "I know people
from North Campus that wanted to
live in South Quad that might not be
able to because of all the additional
displaced students."
The Office of the LSA Dean and
University Housing Administration
were also involved in planning the
honors housing expansion, a process
that started more than two years ago.
Housing Director William Zeller
said Housing Administration was glad
to participate in implementing changes
to honors housing.
"We believe that Michigan Learning
Community programs fulfill the edu-
cational needs of our students, and
anything we can do to promote that is
good," Zeller said.

"I guess it's kind of bad that a lot of
people travel between Uof M and
MSU, but the fact that it's such a rare

freshman Michelle Martinez said. "If

increased the network's bandwidth
but Napster.com visitors took up
the augmented space.
"We wanted to make sure Inter-
net resources (were) available for
research and education," Andrews
said.
Northwestern engineering fresh-
man Michael Calhoun said while he
was upset at first, he understands
the university's point of view.
"I'm not familiar with anyone
saying 'I need Napster for legiti-
mate reasons,' "Calhoun said.
Andrew Palms, University of
Michigan Information Technology
Division director of product devel-
opment for IT Communications.
said Napster's impact here is a con-
cern, but there are no plans for a
ban.
"We would far prefer to do things
on an education campaign," Palms
said, adding that previous informa-
tion efforts such as increasing
awareness about password security
have been successful.
ITD staff members said they
noticed Napster's impact in Octo-
ber, Palms said. Napster activity
takes up about 3 percent of the Uni-
versity's main network resources,
Information Technology Division
Technologist Kurt Hillig said. The
main network, called the net back-
bone, connects most of the Univer-
sity's networks.
Hillig said the backbone is cur-
rently operating close to capacity,
adding that extra programs cause
applications such as Internet use
and e-mail to move-at a slower
pace.
The Website made up zero per-
cent of the network's bandwidth in
September, Palms said.
"Because it's taken off so quickly
we're not sure we can get the
resources quickly enough to handle
the increased use of MP3s," Palms
said.
Palms added that if Napster users
deactivate the server aspect of the
program, the University network
would face less traffic problems.
Hillig said ITD is scheduled to
update the network backbone by
threefold on March 31. He added
that this summer, numerous resi-
dential areas added faster Ethernet
connections while the backbone
was not updated.
In October, Oregon State Univer-
sity was in a similar situation as the
University of Michigan.
Five percent of all outbound traf-
fic on the university's Residential
Computer Network computers was
attributed to Napster. The Oregon
State's Res Com Net eliminated
access to the Website last Novem-
ber, Network Administrator Chris
White said.
"We basically caught it before it
got bad," he said.
The group originally planned on
calling students who used Napster
but opted for a ban after user quan-

tity increased greatly, White said.
Napster is also facing legal prob-
lems. The Recording Industry
Association of America sued the
company, in Decemb'er, alleging
that the company violates copyright
laws by offering some pirated
music.
Users who distribute the down-
loaded music to other people are
technically breaking copyright law.
Northwestern freshman Chris
Mayo said he has used the site.
Personally, most students don't
have that much money (but) we
should be paying for it," Mayo said.
He added that he does not object
to the Northwestern's decision to
eliminate the Website.
"I wish they would come out and
say they banned it for the right rea-
sons," Mayo said-
