Transcript Shelter Gives Hope To Future Residents S tar of Hope Relocation May Lead to More Campus Housing UH's purchase of the Star of Hope mission did more than allow the local shelter to relocate and expand its facilities. It gave hope to students waiting to get on-campus housing- five years from now. UH will lease the property to the Star of Hope for five years so they will have time to relocate. President James Pickering said once the building has been vacated, UH may use the facility, which includes 120 living units, for student housing. The $1.88 million purchase was approved by the UH Board of Regents in October 1992 and was finalized in April 1993, said Mike Post, director of operations at the Star of Hope. Mission representatives and UH administrators began negotiations about a year ago when the mission learned of the university's plans to expand. A real estate agent, not associated with UH, approached directors of the mission last year and asked if they wanted to sell the property, Post said. "We said 'no' because we had plans to expand our facilities within the next few years," Post said. The agent told Post he should speak with UH administrators because he thought they had the land marked for expansion. "That was our initial contact with the university and it was a total surprise when they told us yes' they had long range plans for expanding to that area," Post said. Because the university has eminent domain (the right to purchase private property for public use) of properties surrounding the mission, the charity organization decided to sell the facility now rather than investing money in the property and having to sell it later. "I think the deal worked out for everyone. The timing was right-just before we were planning to expand," Post said.-Kim Copelin Residents Have Fun In The Sun Participants Try to Get Through Mid-terms and Prepare for Spring Break Residents had the chance to play, party and learn while in the midst of taking tests and fantasizing about the upcoming Spring Break week. The gathering was designed to offer residents alternatives to the traditional spring break beach going, traveling and partying. Also, it sought to educated those, who were planning to travel and/or party, on the evils of drinking and driving and promiscuous and unprotected sex as well as gave suggestions and tips on Spring Break health and hair care. Ossians gave out complimentary shampoos and conditioners to give residents an idea of what to use over the break. RHA raffled Astros tickets and hotel rooms at the Embassy Suites Hotel. Other booths included S.T.E.P.S. (Substance Abuse Training and Educational Programs) and Counseling and Testing and Learning Support Services which offered pamphlets, brochures and verbal explanations about its services which include all types of testing, tutoring and counseling ranging from first generation college students to legal services. UHPD offered videos and pamphlets on drinking and driving, rape and solutions to preventing accidents and assaults. A recycling table was there to heightened earth preservation awareness. The Towers Hall Council had a booth to help with the overall operation of the celebration. BACCHUS, PRIDE, S.T.E.P and the THC sponsored a sobriety contract in which residents took the oath not to drink and drive over Spring Break. They also sponsored a Jeep-winning contest that was nationwide. Residents enjoyed games and food throughout the evening. "Crazy Sports" were offered in which students signed up for participation. The sports included water balloon tosses, hula hoop relays and egg and spoon races. Other games included dart throwing, power play in which each contestant wore a lei and a grass skirt and hopped on one leg while hitting the partner with a foam bat.-Joyetta D.
