Transcript campus chaos Students in the UC Satellite wait in the dark during a blackout that caused classes to be cancelled. Photo by Chris Galloway D ancmd m the darl Power outages and water Htain, breaks caused headaches for students It was quite a chaotic year for students and faculty at the University of Houston. One of the biggest headaches of the year was the power outage across campus. Many students and instructors were in their classes learning and teaching when the power suddenly went off. It was a real headache for students working in the computer labs who were in the middle of papers and projects and hadn't saved their work yet. Students and faculty waited for a while and then the University announced that classes would be concluded for the rest of the day. The outage occurred in early fall, when the weather is still pretty hot. Apparently, the airconditioners were being overworked and just overloaded. For some students it was a blessing; for others a nightmare. Another problem that happened this year was a watermain break next to the M. D. Anderson library. The water main break caused mainte- ^ nance workers to dig up a huge trench. Students had to find other routes to some buildings on campus due to all the flooding the main produced. It took the entire day to fix the problem, but UH had not seen its last water problem. A few weeks later the dorms had no running water. Students had to find other facilities with water to meet their needs. The problem took a couple days to fix. Another issue plaguing students was dorm overcrowding in the beginning of the fall semester. Residence halls had been overbooked and as a result many students did not have living quarters. Most were sent to buildings off campus and others had to be packed into dorm lobbies in makeshift rooms. It was a difficult time for many of the students who were expecting dorm rooms, but the issue was taken care of and most students were happy with the outcome. -Linda Canales 42 Student Life Maintenance workers do their best to fix a water main break that flooded a large area of campus by the M.
