Transcript There is talk of a new frontal look to the University and a mall to house the food services, along with other businesses. Along Wheeler is the small residential neighborhood where many UH professors and students live. And just beyond that is Braes Bayou. A portion of the thick wooded area at Wheeler and Cullen is slated to become apartment style housing for on-campus residents. And to the west is the athletic complex, where playing fields, parking lots and tall hedge covered fence separate the University from the neighboring Third Ward. Changes simply cosmetic? While the University's goals to achieve the status of a major research institution are quite clear, some may wonder about the external, more cosmetic changes taking place. It seems logical that a major University should have a clean, well-kept and grand appearance, but it is also true that students like to have a surrounding community of restaurants, shops and clubs. Many wonder if the UH master- plan considers more than academics — interaction with the community like UT, Rice and Georgetown all have — in attracting quality students. The Frat Club's days are numbered. It will be only a memory like Sandy's and the Red Dog Saloon, when progress toward the futrue look of UH rolls over it. Photo by Mark Lacy. The condition of the economy and the slight drop in enrollment was not enough to support a third convenience store on Calhoun. The two remaining are a close distance from the Residence Halls. 233
