Transcript Talent /he annual Towers talent show brought talent from around the residence halls. Seven acts showed up to strut their stuff and compete for trophies and ribbons. The program included a professional act by the jazz band Expressions as well as door prizes that included t- shirts, Coog's Cafe and tanning salon gift certificates. The third prize went to an act called Funky Town Productions that did a dance to "Bitch Better Have My Money" that ended with a shower of monopoly money. Second prize went to Kim Jones who did a ballad accapello that was re- i warded with a burst of applause. First prize went to Rima Kaloor who did a rendition of Gloria Estefan's "I Can't Stay Away from You". The beautifully rehearsed ballad melted the hearts of all who were within ear shot- T h e crowd in the 5J*J Commons was well rewarded r for their pa- — tience with loads of talent and fun.- Jennif er Van Akin 4^ *£#>&* ^irst Floor Law: Lies Baghdadi, Tony Dutton, Damani Hughs, Alien Dog Star, Steven Morrisey, Scott O'Neil, Bran Barron, Michael Johnson, Haryn Pickell, Jen Horton, Kelli Bardwell, Curtis Reynolds, Chrissa Cromwell, Laura Montgomery, Julie Neaston.

"The transition took place on Saturday, March 21, the rest of the week was for trouble shooting," Sandy Colthrap, assistant director of resident life, said. The decision to upgrade the existing telephone system was made in 1991. It took extensive planning and some deadline delays. "We were told the system would be on line by Christmas," Colthrap said. "We told the students who told their friends and family. It did not happen. The students were very disappointed by the inconvenience. It was quite a let down," Colthrap said. My job was to counsel the students and get them through their problems so they could perform efficiently during their academic career," Colthrap said. "The weeks after the December announcement, 1 was very busy counseling students," she said. The system installation began in the fall semester 1991. All the resident halls had to be rewired, ceiling and walls. The old system provided a telephone for every two rooms, thus four students had to share one telephone. The new system put a phone jack in every room. The resident population averaged about 2300 students and the antiquated system provided students with 575 telephones. The new system gave students access to 1150 telephones. Students were very positive about the new telephone system. Though they were not happy with the lack of new telephone books.
