The re-opening of the RamsheadRathskeller will be pushed back atleast eight months from its origi-nal date after the project ownerexperienced complications withher construction budget.Diane Fountain, the Wilmingtonresident overseeing the Rat’s return,said determining construction andrenovation costs for the space tooklonger than she anticipated, andthe Rathskeller will likely not openuntil after the summer.“I didn’t anticipate it taking thislong,” she said. “I really want it, butclearly it’s a lot more complicatedthan our overzealousness took intoaccount.”Fountain approached The Daily Tar Heel in August and said sheexpected the Rathskeller to open by the end of 2010. In November shesaid was forced to push back the dateto January after more complications with the construction budget.Fountain is no stranger tostruggle. In addition to at least five business ventures that have beenadministratively dissolved by theN.C. Department of the Secretary of State, she has been involvedin at least 14 civil disputes in which plaintiffs claimed she owedmoney.Fountain, however, said all legalissues are in her past, and she andher team are dedicated to re-open-ing the Rat despite the setbacksthe project has faced.“I apologize,” she said. “I was asexcited as everybody else.”

 With more students placing out of entry-levelEnglish courses, the University is looking to restruc-ture a bedrock of its general requirements: 101 and102 classes.Bobbi Owen, senior associate dean for undergrad-uate education, said the University is considering aplan that would require all students to take at leastone writing course, without the ability to place out.The change comes in response to faculty concernsabout the quality of student writing, even for stu-dents who place out of the introductory courses.“Faculty find that (students) may not be able to dothe writing required of them,” Owen said.Under the current system, students may place outof one or both introductory English courses withtest scores or prior credit. Since 1996, enrollment inEnglish 101 has grown 18 percent as total freshmanenrollment rose 20.8 percent during that time.The proposal comes at a time when the University,eyeing a $3.7 billion state budget shortfall and immi-nent cuts, looks to preserve instructional quality andimprove efficiency. But if classes were to be cut, offi-cials said electives would be the first to go.“It’s the electives, the enrichment courses where Ithink we will see more cuts,” Owen said.Beverly Taylor, chairwoman of the English depart-ment, said course enrollment numbers in English 101and 102 are slightly lower than the overall class growth because an increasing number of students place out.In 2009-10, 2,397 students, or 60.5 percent of the freshman class, were exempted from 101 by testscores or academic credit. That same year 1,159 stu-dents, or about 29 percent of the class, tested out of  both required English courses.Taylor said she thinks it is important that all stu-dents receive instruction in writing, and that the newidea would accomplish that. But she admits the idea isstill in its early phases and won’t begin next year. All students are also required to fulfill a quantita-tive requirement, or math course, which they can doin a number of ways.Compared with entry-level English courses,enrollment in MATH 110, which serves as a prereq-

 As further state budget cutsloom over the University, student body president candidates arepreparing for the inevitable.The candidates all have theirsights on softening potentialtuition hikes and examining stu-dent fees so students get the mostof what they are paying for.Student Body President HoganMedlin and University officialssaid the idealstudent body president would be, above all else, well-informed,allowing themto better relateto legislators and administrators.
n  ‘ ’
Medlin said the best way for thestudent body president to approachtuition is to create a continuingdialogue with state legislators toexpress the concerns of students.“It’s not like you’re talking to a brick wall,” he said.Candidate Rick Ingram said working in the General Assembly last summer taught him how tospeak with legislators.Candidate Mary Cooper saidshe plans to use a group of stu-dents to target specific legislatorsto make lobbying more effective.Medlin said legislators respondparticularly well to specific exam-ples of the impact of budget cutsand tuition hikes on students.“If we’re not there, they don’thear the stories of students,” hesaid.Bruce Carney, executive vicechancellor and provost, saidMedlin’s voice was a significantreason revenue from tuition hikeslast year remained on campus.Candidate Ian Lee said he plansto approach tuition by pushing fora cost-based tuition system that would charge students for the costof an individual education.He said the plan would create a wish list of goals, such as smallerclasses and better advising.The student body president isthe lone student representative onthe Board of Trustees.Carney said it is important tohave a student perspective on the board because the conversationsseek to strike a balance betweenkeeping the University affordableand maintaining academic quality.“They collide when it comes totuition sometimes,” he said.

The Financial Times has ranked the Kenan-Flagler Business School number 62 in its Global MBA Rankings for2011, a 16 point drop from 2010. UNC’s ranking peaked in 2004 and 2005, but has been declining ever since.

The Kenan-Flagler BusinessSchool plummeted in this year’sFinancial Times Global Master of Business Administration rankings,dropping 16 spots, from 46 to 62.It was a plunge that surprisedleaders at the business school asthey tried to determine the reasonfor the drop.“These kind of wild swings inranking are very hard to under-stand when we haven’t reduced thequality of anything,” said Jim Dean,dean of the business school.Dean said he was worried by theranking, but would have been con-cerned even if the school’s rankingclimbed 20 slots.“Universities just don’t changethat dramatically,” Dean said. Allison Adams, media relationsdirector at the school, said she hasobserved the Financial Times rank-ings since they began in 1999. Shesaid she has never seen such a severefluctuation in the school’s rank.The schools are judged based onthree criteria: alumni salaries andcareer development, the diver-sity and international reach of theschool and the research capabili-ties of each school, Adams said.John Byrne, executive editorat BusinessWeek, said at least 40schools had double-digit increasesor decreases in their ranks in 2011.“One of the problems with theFinancial Times methodology isthat it really doesn’t measure thequality of the business school,”Byrne said, adding that countriesin good economic locations expe-rience the biggest payoffs, giventhe influence of alumni salary onrankings.The salary component makesup 40 percent of the ranking, giv-ing some international schools anadvantage.“A $40,000 salary in India trans-fers to $200,000 here,” said SridharBalasubramanian, associate dean of the MBA program at UNC.Byrne said the rating doesnot accurately represent theUniversity’s business school.“Sixty-two is a complete and totalanomaly,” Byrne said. “There’s nocredibility whatsoever. No one can

raise $2 million or do you raise $1million?”“That’s been the holdup. We’reall in agreement as to what we’redoing and what those numbersneed to be.”Representatives from both firmsdeclined to comment on construc-tion progress.Fountain said renovations to theRathskeller, located below FranklinStreet across from Bandido’sMexican Cafe, include raising theceiling and upgrading plumbingand electricity systems, in additionto outfitting the kitchen and bar.Fountain said the project’stotal construction budget is now$541,000. She said she also plansto raise money for reserves.“Sometimes you don’t know what you’re going to find when youget in there,” Fountain said. “It’s a bear, an absolute bear.”

ootball fans unsure of precisely when to support their teams will be out of luck, as this Sunday’s Super Bowl will be the first in 43 years to not featurecheerleaders.The Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers, who will play for theNFL title this weekend, are two of six football teams who manage to play withoutscantily clad inspiration squads of their own.How the lack of navels and organized dance routines will affect the quality of play remains unclear. Brief transitions from commercial break could also be in jeopardy,sources said. A Super Bowl hasn’t gone cheerleader-less since 1968.

The Chapel Hill Town Council will begin its annual retreat tonightto create a plan for the next year inthe face of looming budget cuts.Council members will use theretreat to outline goals for the yearand see which ones they can meet.The council must considerpotential budget cuts after aRepublican majority gained con-trol of the N.C. General Assembly for the first time since 1898.“They’re getting fiscally conserva-tive to the point of being dangerous,”council member Ed Harrison said.“We have a real concern about whatthe state legislature will do aboutmonies for local governments.”But during the past year thecouncil supported projects thataimed to revitalize Chapel Hill.

StateUniversity.Fry will leave the University onFeb. 16 after more than two yearsas assistant director of the Officeof Fraternity and Sorority Life. Shehad recently taken over the duties of Jenny Levering, who was the office’sdirector until she left in October fora similar role atMiami University in Ohio.Fry said she isrelocating for herhusband’s job.“I am extreme-ly excited aboutthis next phaseof my life,” Fry said. “However, Ihave thoroughly enjoyed my timeat Carolina andam grateful forthe professional experiences thathave been provided to me and therelationships I have made with stu-dents.”The decisions by Levering and Fry coincided with a University reviewof the Greek system. In his new role,Bachenheimer will provide inputinto the University’s efforts withthe Board of Trustees to reform theGreek system, and he said he is excit-ed for the opportunity.“I am excited to be here because I really enjoy working with students, whether they’re infraternities or sororities or otherorganizations,” he said.He has a background working with fraternities and sororities, but noted there could be somedifficulties ahead.“I’m definitely excited,” he said.“And there are certainly challengesinvolved.”Bachenheimer said he is goingto work through the semester andthe summer, and he might also beinterested in applying for a per-manent position after the Boardof Trustees finishes restructuringthe office.“I certainly could be an appli-cant for a full-time position,”Bachenheimer said. “I’ll have todecide based on what the Board of Trustees decides on the structure.”Sauls said the structure should be set in a few weeks, after whichcandidates may apply, adding thatthe office already provides pro-gramming, assistance to chapters,day-to-day advising and leadershipdevelopment.Bachenheimer said he will finishhis doctorate this semester, so he will be looking for opportunities, whether at UNC or elsewhere.“I am not going to be ableto replace Kayte,” he said. “My intention is to bring what I haveto the table and help students in whatever way I can.”

“Broadway Melodies 2011” willmark the end of an era.Pauper Players, who have per-formed in the Union Cabaretsince the closure of the HistoricPlaymakers Theatre in 2006, will say goodbye to the uncon- ventional space at the end of theproduction.The upcoming annual“Broadway Melodies” show, which will be the last in the Cabaret, willfeature a trio of well-known sets:Mean Girls, Glee and the films of Quentin Tarantino.“‘Broadway Melodies’ is satiri-cal,” said senior Olivia Myrick, whoco-wrote and co-directed “MeanGirls: The Musical.”“Basically, we create things to bea mockery of what already exists.”Each show was chosen becauseof its influence on culture — andthe writer’s ability to put it tomusic.“(Glee) already uses songs andmakes them fit what’s going on ineach episode, and that’s what wedo,” said Nick Culp, UNC alum anddirector of “Glee: the Musical.“We take songs and make themfit into a plot.”Though Pauper has struggled with the constraints of the cabaretin the past, its members said they  will miss it.“We have grown really attachedto the place, it’s very much ourhome,” said senior Elissa Rumer,the producer of “Broadway Melodies.” Aside from being a place to callhome, the Union has providedPauper with support.“We have loved working with theUnion staff and having our specialspot,” Myrick said.Many members are embracingthe proposed Union renovations, which would provide them witha more functional performance venue.“We deserve a space where we canput on better shows,” Culp said.The proposed cabaret renova-tions will provide a stage, dress-ing room and better flooring — allof which the current space sorely lacks.“The people before us have paidtheir fees to allow us to have thespaces that we do have and we would be more than willing to putforth the money for something thatis going to benefit future genera-tions,” Myrick said. Alex Koceja, writer and direc-tor of “A Very Tarantino Musical”— which explores the films of Tarantino in a more humorous,musical way — said that “Broadway Melodies” is a great way to go out.“You are going to leave witha song in your heart just feelinggood, and I think that’s what thisplace, and Pauper, is all about,” hesaid.

For weeks, the candidates for student body president havetraded an onslaught of complaints in what has become oneof the most litigious campaigns in recent memory.On Thursday, they took a break, trading jokes instead.Continuing a tradition of provocative humor, antics andputting student body presidential candidates in awkward posi-tions, BoUNCe Magazine put a humorous spin on the politicaldebate.To start the forum, Jay Morgan, an associate editor for themagazine, stood before the crowd in semi-traditional Native American attire and made an announcement.“Knowledge of cultural affairs is important for student body president candidates. Pay special attention to the follow-ing trailer — especially the cinematic technique,” he said.Two projection screens in front of the lecture hall beganto play scenes of Will Smith twirling revolvers and hoppingfrom trains, followed by a clip of a giant mechanized spider,introducing the night’s theme: The Wild West.“Was the name of the film Wild Wild East, North, Southor West?” Morgan asked candidate Ian Lee.Lee sat muted, pondering the question and said, “West?”“Seven points for Ian!” Alex Hunt, the managing editor, asked the next question.
