Transcript ps and Downs As years go, this was an interesting one. Just like all years at the University of Houston — interesting, to say the least. It made passing time a worthwhile adventure for seasoned students at the university, however, a bit frustrating at times. The University of Houston isn't exactly the most stable among institutions on their way up. As the transformation of the university accelerates,the seams nearly rattle apart on occasion. While many great things are happening, and some things that are quite peculiar, superconductivity and administration turnover probably aren't first on students' minds. Students place their social prospects high on their list of priorities — in many cases, higher than academics. They are interested in places to meet other students and places to go that in no way resembles classrooms. Students search far and wide for the best drink specials, free admission and cutting edge dance music. Two for one coupons at fast food restaurants are hot items. Malls are usually well traveled during back to school shopping sprees. The obvious question is, why aren't more of these places close to the university? Plans to devel- op commercial businesses around the university are in the works. But change doesn't occur overnight. The university is waiting on the state to further its plans to extend Highway 35 before the land can be sold to Friendswood Development. Construction of Highway 35, the Al- vin Freeway isn't expected to begin until mid-1991. 326 ■ Closing o Mark Lacy Photography Editor / all the profound and famous quotations people use in life, none are deserving of my new outlook. Walter A. Kibby said it best — "What do you want? Why don't you leave me alone?!" And the State isn't the only thing standing in the way of commercial development. The city and the university must agree on the future of Wheeler Street before some of the plans vital to the future of the community can be carried out, including fraternity row. Entrance No. 1 and Wheeler street will eventually be extended to meet State Highway 35. Progress was evident on campus, however, with the opening of the College of Hotel and Restaurant Management Hilton Annex. The Spring semester concluded with the ground-breaking for the Science and Research III building and the beginning of much needed renovations to the University Center. Texas landed the prized Super Collider project, and with the new facilities S&R III will feature, UH should be in the superconductivity business for years to come and Dr. Paul Chu should be a household name worldwide Not very many students come to the UH to pioneer superconductivity. In fact, most have little understanding of its implications for the future. Enrollment was up, over 30,000 again. Not only is the university becoming a leader among international research institutions, but it has maintained minority enrollment and has also achieved a 23rd ranking in the nation in attracting National Merit Scholars. The Honors Program has grown steadily in size over the past years and this year a task force was assigned to study the feasibility of creating an honors college. Grade posting became an issue. Professors can no longer post grades because of concerns for students' right to privacy. With enrollment up and construction taking over the few available parking spaces, parking was clearly a nightmare on campus. The parking and transportation department's shuttle program is up for improvements so that parking a 1/2 mile away won't be the nightmare that it has been. Parking at the Dome wasn't a problem during UH football games. Even though the Cougars were hot, Coach Jack Pardee's exciting run and shoot offense didn't bring the football tradition to life. The team won the Homecoming Game and went on to hand UT its worst loss ever in Memorial Stadium. After a fantastic season, the Cougars received a two year NCAA probation for violations that occurred during Coach Bill Yeoman's tenure,and in the end a defeat in the Aloha Bowl. ► Mark Lacy Ups and Downs ■ 327
