With the end of the 2000-2001 fiscal year, University Ath-
letic Director Bill Martin announced at Thursday's Board of
Regents meeting for the third consecutive year the Athletic
Department is running a deficit.
The good news is the deficit was $3 million less than
expected, and the department expects to be out of the red by
the end of the 2001-2002 fiscal year.
Martin said the Athletic Department is "$3 million better off
than I told you we'd be in the budget I didn't think I'd have to
live with," referring to his budget presentation he made last
year when he was serving as the interim athletic director.

In a speech before Congress Wednesday, Federal Reserve Board
Chairman Alan Greenspan warned of continued weakness in the econo-
my, noting in particular that unemployment is expected to continue its
climb in the coming year. As the autumn campus recruiting season
draws near, the prognosis is sure to cast a heavy shadow over students'
Following years of record campus recruitment, the hiring momentum
slowed considerably last winter when tumbling stock prices led the
economy into an abrupt slow-down. As companies scaled back profit
estimates and reassessed employment needs, a number of students who
had secured employment in the fall recruiting season were suddenly
confronted with an uncertain future.
"We've heard of delays in hiring, and in winter we had some rescind-
ed offers," said Cynthia Redwine, director of the College of Engineer-
ing's Career Resource Center. "Companies are having to slow down in
terms of the number of hires."
In the technology, automotive and consulting industries, where the
economic downturn was particularly acute, many firms made the deci-
sion to delay recruits' start dates in order to keep pace with slowing
business. With a number of last year's recruits still delayed - some for
as long as a year - last fall's recruitment overestimates are expected to
compound job scarcity in the coming year.
"Most companies over-recruit in good times and under-recruit in bad
times," explained Business Prof. Richard Price, a senior research scien-
tist at the Institute for Social Research. "One of the first things (compa-
nies) will do is slow down recruiting - they already have a workforce
that they've invested in"
