been positive, but or some itmay take time to get use to.“There are those naturalgrowing pains, but all in all theeedback we have gotten ispositive,” Guerin said.Soto said they were able towork through issues ater pilot-ing the site, and with the launcho the website, there have beenvery ew problems.“The problems we haveaced or that we have hadphone calls or emails about areuser-specic, meaning it’s thesetting in their browser theyhave to change,” Soto said.He said another issue peo-ple have told them about arethe navigation links at the topo the page do not work. Thiswas an issue because somepeople were using an old ver-sion o Internet Explorer, andan upgrade will x the prob-lem.However, some students saythe problem is not so muchwith the unction o the web-site as it is with the navigationo the website.Mikaela Fitzwater, a resh-man English secondary educa-tion major, said it is hard or herto navigate the site.“Moodle and webmail arehard enough to navigate andnow you have to search or iton the website,” Fitzwater said.“I eel like it is so much harderto nd everything.”Darrell Turner, a sopho-more animal science major,said he eels the same aboutthe new website.“For one, I think it lacks alot,” Turner said. “For instance,the drop down menu shouldalready come down, but youhave to click on it.”Turner said he would preerit i webmail and Moodle werealready on the site because itmakes it more convenient.Though the news site may be conusing to navigate, Sotosaid the new website was basedon research done on how otherTier One universities designedtheir websites.Soto said he and his webteam really wanted to step upwith this design and rival peers.“I want a site that has theunctionality or the look andeel o a major university,which I believe we are,” Sotosaid. “We’re a Tier One uni-versity, so I wanted a site thatwould refect that.”

Ryan Joseph, a reshmanmechanical engineering ma- jor, said he thinks Guice isthe perect man to succeedReneau.“It is sad to see Reneau go, but Guice has the experienceand spirit to continue Tech inthe right direction,” he said.Reaneau said it takesstrong and dedicated com-mitment to excellence in allaspects o the university tosucceed in the presidentialposition, and he knows Guicehas it.“Guice is very bright andcertainly mentally capableo handling the job,” he said.“He has been part o Techor many years and has thevision and determination tolead the university to greaterheights.”Dearmon said Guice notonly has high credentials andqualications, but he also hasmoral integrity and an out-standing personal reputationwith Tech aliates across thestate and region.“Dr. Hrncir has greatqualications and is an out-standing academic, however,given Dr. Guice’s experienceat Louisiana Tech, I believehe had the edge on Dr. Hrn-cir,” he said.Guice said he learnedmuch about every position,student and aculty, at Techas he acted in every position,and he believes that put himover the top against the othercandidates.He said experience hashelped him better understandthe needs o aculty and stu-dents.He graduated rom Techwith a degree in architecture,and he worked his way romstudent to vice president o research.Since F. Jay Taylor servedas president or 25 yearsand Dan Reneau served aspresident or 26 years, Guicesaid he does not plan to setany records there. However,he does see his presidentialservice time as more than anumber.“When the search commit-tee asked how long I plannedto serve as Tech’s president,I told them we developed astrategic plan,” Guice said.“Tech 20/20 has high goalswe wanted to achieve or theuniversity, and I would at leastlike to remain in this positionuntil we have met and ex-ceeded those goals.”Reneau said during hispresidency, an excellent stu-dent body, research labora-tories, Research Park andthe doctorial program weredeveloped. Also, Tech movedto selective admissions andwas reclassied as a tier oneuniversity.“To see it all come true isheart-warming,” Reneau said.Dearmon said he ex-pects Guice to urtherTech as a premier researchinstitution, advance theuniversity’s unique edu-cational oerings and putmuch o his ocus on ex-panding external revenuesources, while diversiyingand growing Tech’s appealon the national level.Joseph, mechanical en-gineering student, said hethinks Guice will do greatthings or Tech.“As the university con-tinues to rapidly grow,Guice will bring resh ideasto the table without threat-ening any traditions,” hesaid.Guice said though sometraditions ade over time,he would like to make sureTech’s tradition o excellencein the classroom remains as ahallmark.“In my opinion he is theright man in the right placeat the right time or the presi-dency o Louisiana Tech Uni-versity,” Reneau said. “He willdo well.”
