Summer conferences
hold dorm rates down

By DAVID JACOBS
While most students are out of town
for the summer, a steady stream of
visitors and prospective students keeps
the dormitories open while helping to
cut the cost of student housing during
the school year.
"We handle 13,000 to 15,000 people.
between May 1 and the 20th of August,"
said Nancy D'Angelo, manager of
conference services for the University.
MOST OF the summer residents who
fill eight of the University's dorms
come from freshman orientation,
parent orientation, and summer sports
camps, D'Angelo said, although a
variety of other activities also take
place.
The fees charged for these activities
help keep student dorm rates down
because "the more money that comes
into the building the more students will
prosper,"D'Angelo said.
"In the last five years," she said,
"the program has doubled as far as
participants and as far as income." In

those five years the program has made
between $1 and $1.5 million in gross
income each summer.
One unique group among this
summer s conference participants was
the 54-member group of people age 62
and over from the Elder Hostel
program.
The senior citizens spent a week on
campus and took three mini-courses
from faculty members during their
stay. The program is sponsored by an
international organization which
serves 60,000 people nationwide.
In addition to the financial benefits,
D'Angelo said the summer conferences
help build the University's image
because paticipants come from many
different parts of the country.
Although summer orientation ends
today, the conference program will
continue with 700 people coming to
campus this weekend for the 20th
Annual International Combustion
Symposium, a forum sponsored by the
Engineering college.
