Transcript Going Once, Going Twice; Sold Towers Auction Items From Storage Almost 30 Tears Old Dated back to the 1960's, the Residence Halls' storage policy stated that after 30 days all items stored in the storage closets of the residence halls became the property of the university. Although the university has always had the option to auction these unclaimed belongings, it wasn't until last year that the Moody Towers held the first auction. The auction included things that had been abandoned since about 1968. Items came from every storage room on each floor. The Towers Area Coordinator's office took two weeks and notified students they believed may have left the items in storage in order to give them the opportunity to claim their goods. The office then closed down the pool room and locked up all the things there until they were categorized. Afterwards, they filled three dorm rooms with everything such as all types of clothing, formals, shoes, bell-bottom pants, some original items, platform shoes, historical items, stamp collections that even included Saddam Husain stamps, said Juanita Barner, area coordinator for the Moody Towers. Residents got the chance to buy radios, refrigerators and other appliances to modernize their room at a great price. They also got items to add to their already started collections or items they thought their families would be interested in. A garage sale was held with the left over clothes. They were priced at about $2 an item. The coordinators' office raised $1300. The clothes that were not sold were given to the Star of Hope located on Calhoun and other charities. The auction will be made an annual event said Barner. The money made from the things auctioned, that were almost 30 years old, went to the organization bank to help fund projects, such as those given by Resident Advisors. The bulk of the money went to wan 11 he annual RA retreat Tor the Southwest Area Resident Association Conference which cost about $900 and was held April 2-4. Thirty of the sixty RA's were in attendance.-Joyetta D. Johnson. Dorm Occupancy For Fall 94 May Be Down 500 During one of the largest budget cuts in the state, UH may be losing more funds because of low dorm residency in the coming Fall 1994 semester. Dorm residency in Moody Towers and in the Quadrangle was down 455 students from last spring, said Jackie Mithchell, assistant director of student housing. In Fall 1993, the dorms were so overcrowded that despite a lengthy waiting list, students who did get into the dorms often ended up sleeping in a student lounge while waiting for a room. Sandy Coltharp, associate director of residence life, said many factors attribute to the decline in residency. "We are down about 500 people, but the university is down in enrollment also," said Coltharp. She said it is possible that the debt crackdown and new policies could be factors. "The (students') accounts have to be up to date, as far as owing money. Starting in the fall, they'll be sending us a list so we can verify that the students living on campus are enrolled," Coltharp said. The two main student housing facilities, the Towers and the Quad, house approximately 3300 students on campus each year. Unlike Cambridge Oaks, which was an apartment complex considered to be on-campus housing, dorm fees in the Towers or the Quad are paid in full or in installments on the students' fee bills. Cougar Place was also on-campus housing, but is reserved for upper classmen. Rent was paid monthly, as in an apartment complex. Director of Student Housing Tom Pennett said most of the reasons given by students for not living on campus were financial. "Some stay at home to save money, or they're not coming to school at all. "We always have some students who back out of their contracts, but in the previous years, dorm residency has only gone down 50 or 70 students in the summer," said Pennett. Mitchell said she will call those students who failed to accept their contracts for the fall to discover why they are not returning for a survey they are conducting to determine why students aren't coming back. "It's been a long time since the number has been so low, but I feel it will change somewhat before classes start in the fall," Mitchell said. -Heather Wolk Dorm Updates ►•#97
