Transcript Fans at Robertson Stadium cheer for the Cougars in the game against UCLA. Moving the games back to Robertson, rather than the Astrodome, proved to be an effective way to make it easier for students to support the football team. CharttweH's, the food service company brought in to replace Aramark, hired construction workers like Jorge R. Fernandez of CGA, Inc. to renovate the new Satellite. When opened, the Satellite featured a wider selection of food with lower prices. 2 2 -CAMPUS LIFE | Outlook Bringing Clyde Drexler to UH as the new head basket- ball coach brought a flood of enthusiasm to the pro- gram. Thse bumper stickers, given out from the very beginning of the fall semester, were widely displayed on vehicles, walls, and other places. Replacing the narrow sidewalks in front of the Moores School fo Music, contractors brought in by the univer- sity first had to remove existing pavement and exca- vate several large trees. Changes and transitions were taking place all around campus, some structural and some strategical, all for the good of UH pride. Construction on campus was commonplace, making it seem odd to walk into a part of campus without orange warning tape. Perhaps the most popular changes came from a restructured athletics department. The biggest news on campus was also a major story across the nation as former Houston Rocket Clyde Drexler took over as head coach of the men's basketball team. The Clyde mania began before school started with renovations to Hofheinz Pavilion and hundreds of "Come Glyde With Clyde" bumper stickers and billboards across Houston. The new coach made his entrance at Midnight Madness, an event held to commemorate the beginning of practice. More than 4,000 students and alumni attended the event which was a larger crowd than men's basketball had seen in several years. "I was really pumped with the crowd's enthusiasm. I can't wait for the season to start," said point guard Gee Gervm. In the Fall, students enjoyed the returning of home games formerly played at the Astrodome to Robertson Stadium. In his first full year as Director of Athletics, Chet Gladchuck made the move because "college landing out balloons at the second home game, members of the women's basketball team promote the move back to Robertson Stadium. Football games had been held at the Astrodome in recent years. football belongs on a college campus. The pageantry allows for alumni and prospective students to come to the campus." Students flocked to the stadium Saturday afternoons for tail- gating parties and bands enjoying a growing sense of Cougar Pride long absent from the campus. The future of Robertson Stadium looked very positive as season ticket sales rose 70 percent with the addition of luxury boxes and the announcement of major renovations. In the summer, Aramark, who held the food service contract on campus for nearly 20 years, was replaced by Chartwells after numerous student complaints. The new contractor made several changes to UH eating places starting with tearing out and rebuilding the food court in the Satellite, Towers andUC. In the UC, the new Millennium 2000 cafe, and in all cafeterias across campus, students found a larger selection and lower prices. Exhibition style cooking was the newest edition to the menu where at breakfast students had the chance to build their own omelets and flip pancakes. Ritoria Pasta, Houston Heroes, joined several national chains returning to campus including Subway's, Wendy's, BBQ, Chick-Fil-A, Kim Son, and Pizza Hut. By: Elizaneth Combs Transitions on Campus • 2 3
