Prof. Andrew Shryock said his reaction
to University controls would "depend on
what kinds of limits they imposed and
how they were justified." He added that
he would not want a set of blanket limits
on the books he can assign.
The GAO reported that textbook pub-
lishers have been including expensive
add-ons such as CD-ROMs, as well as
issuing new editions at shorter intervals,
which prevents students from buying
used versions because many professors
require the most recent edition.
Shryock said that "sometimes pro-
fessors are not as alert to the price
of books as we should be." That is
because in many instances professors
simply cannot imagine a person who
would not be thrilled with the concept
of spending most of their money on
books, he said.

Students can place bids in person

the first floor at the School of Social
Work or via e-mail.
In addition to the silent auction,
Tolman said the school is trying
to publicize its intent to host dis-
placed social work graduate students.
"We've been depending on the Uni-
versity publicity, letting people know
that we are making (the program)
available for students," she said. "We
are doing our best to help students

"It's important for students to hear
what students have to say about pro-
fessors," Douglas said. "It's a good
resource to have, but there are some
key things it doesn't (say)."
Jayne Brownell, director of LSA
academic advising, also has mixed
feelings about the site. She said
the subjective nature of the surveys
would inevitably yield a subjective
result, given that students' opinions
of a course will vary based on per-

Khalil said. "We don't want to take attention away from
Katrina, but the issue in Niger is important too."
While there are many people starving and homeless in New
Orleans, Dar said more than 3.5 million people in Niger are
also in danger of starving to death.
"The rate of death is two times what the United Nations
would call an emergency," he said.
Staatz said a widespread lack of Niger's income growth
combined with an increase of the locust population caused the
"A collapse of income is why many are starving," he said.
"They rely on livestock, and recently the livestock have died
due to locusts. So many people had to sell their animals quick-
ly, which led the price of animals to fall. A large amount of
money of the hungry relied on their livestock."
Raising money is a way to begin to help the situation, but
Staatz said he thinks it won't completely solve the problem.
Staatz said he planned to draw an analogy of what is hap-
pening in Niger and what happened in New Orleans when he
speaks at the dinner Monday night.
"What happened in Niger is not short-term but results from
long-term problems, and these problems need to be addressed,"
But to solve a long-term problem, Staatz said aid needs to
help countries to the point where these crises don't occur in
"Clearly when people are starving you've go to respond,"
Staatz said. "I hope students get a better understanding of root
causes of problems in Niger and what to do to help it."

keeping it fresh.
The plans for the Dining Center
also include a second-level empo-
rium that will act more as a lounge
than a dining hall. The area will be
equipped with wireless Internet and
a snack bar, and even students with-
out meal credits will be able to use
the upper level without paying to
get inside. The hope is that students
will use the area to study - both on
their own and in groups.
"We're trying to be really sensi-
tive to the new environment today of
living and learning together," Henry
said. "There are different standards
for living and learning than there
were when these facilities were built
While the students on the Hill
make the move to one dining hall
for all four dorms, the former caf-
and studying areas. The dining hall
in Mosher-Jordan will be revamped
next summer with the rest of the
building, but Henry said that there
is no timeframe for when the other
three dining halls will be convert-
The Mosher-Jordan renovation
will be mostly on the inside of the
dorm. Other than a few exterior
changes - such as moving the load-
ing dock away from front entrance to
the north end of the dorm - the out-
side of Mosher-Jordan will remain
mostly unchanged. Instead, the
renovations will focus on upgrades
to the electrical, plumbing, heating
and ventilation systems, as well as
the introduction of wireless Internet
and climate control, controlled by
"The overall renovation of Mosh-
er-Jordan is essential to preserving
the infrastructure of this archi-
tecturally important building," E.
Royster Harper, vice president for
student affairs, said at the regents'
The project will be the first major
renovation ever to a University resi-
dence hall. It is also the first project
in the University's larger housing
renewal plan - the Residential Life
Until the dorm reopens in 2008,
the University will have to find
housing for the students who the
construction displaces. Last year,
63 percent of the nearly 500 stu-
dents in Mosher-Jordan were fresh-
men, and Levy said he expected that
this year's numbers were about the
same. The hope is to begin inform-
ing students of their options by early
In addition to the renovations on
the Hill, the regents also approved
two more renovation projects. A $12-
million project to bring an empori-
um to Bursley Residence Hall and
renovate the electrical and fire pro-
tection systems was approved, and
Oxford Housing will also get updat-
ed fire detection and alarm systems
at a cost of $3.9 million.
The regents also approved a 3.5-
percent increase to Coleman's sal-
ary. Before the raise, Coleman made

The regents approved a dining center on the Hill that will be used by residents of four out of the five residence halls in the area.
