Transcript Monumental Changes UH President Richard Van Horn had a hec of a time balancing the budget in the face of severe cuts in education funding. Debbie Hanna, a former UH student, became the first woman chairperson of the Board of Regents. There was unfounded talk in the State Legislature of a "tier system" for state universities in which UH would have been second behind UT and A&M. The change in the legal drinking age from 19 to 21 helped reinforce UH's trend toward a dry (non-alcoholic) campus. Alcohol was banned on "the hill" outside the Satellite. The Task Force Report established a policy that any student in a leadership position must have a 2.5 GPA in order to receive compensation. In an unresolved dispute, the College of Technology, with an enrollment of 1,500 faced elimination. UH began to look at necessary renovations to Robertson Stadium in order to bring football games back on the campus. The new Architecture Building designed by Phillip Johnson opened for classes in the summer, Melcher Hall opened in the fall and the $800,000 Oblisks were completed at the intersection of Cullen and 1-45. It was the general concensus the among the administrators that additions to the on-campus residential community, including married student housing, greek housing and a mall are in store for the future. 146
