The residence halls and the
University of Houston went on line
with a new telephone system during
the week of Spring Break 1992. "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,"
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.
