Campus Center Adds On
By
Jill Chiccarino
Workers Look Over Plans ForCampus Center Addition.
Here we are, four weeks intothe school year here at the 'Hurstand hopefully you have beennoticing the significant changesatop the hill.
|
Naturally, the cafeteria andthe
HRIM
addition would proba-bly be
the'first noticed Jby
moststudents, but turn around and takea
look
at the Campus Center.
Construction;
has begun for a$350,000 addition to the Center.Two home and two away lockerrooms, showers facilities,
a
^'laun-
dry area, and storage spaces arethe basis of the addition. This willallow for the expected
growthfinMercyhurst'S
Sports Medicineprogram.A new heating system is beinginstalled for the comfort of theplayers, fans, coaches, and
staff.
The now carpeted area just outsideof the Campus Center will be en-closed and a permanent concessionarea and a ticket booth will beconstructed, which will give thefans a place to congregate beforethe games, during half-times andafter the games.
Presently,
fthe
only place to
go
is either to the restrooms or outside.
'$
Mercyhurst
I
theJohn Leisering,
j
Athletic Director, expects
facilities
to be completed
"by
early to mid
November,"
at thestart of the men's and
women's
basketball season.
f
On May
1st,
the Julliard
String
Quartet will make its
first
appear-
ance
tin Erie. According to Sam
Rotman,
the
^director
of theD'Angelo School of Music,
"it
tookthree months of negotiations to getthem into the Mercyhurst Collegeseries." The Quartet has made over
150
recordings on the
CBS
Master-works label.The
outstanding
element of theseries is the cost. Unfortunately,
V
according to Rotman,
"the
President's Card does not coverthe cost of these events." Fortu-nately, a ticket for every event inthe series, five outstanding con-certs,is only $10. An individualticket for an event, if available, is
$5,
and can be purchased the dayof the concert.
j 1
One factor that makes this aspectacular price is the fact thatthe Julliard String Quartetplayed in New York last year,and the tickets went for $40apiece," according to Rotman.If you are interested, call 825-0394 before Sunday to reservetickets for the concert.

the

"Yes.

here
everything
is on a
really personal level. Youcan go into a party and notknow

"Definitely. Espe-cially since
I
wasfa. com-muter, college
has
taughtme
to

Letter To The
Editor:
Photo! Caption "Morbid"
Dear Editor;
;
I recently procured a copy of the 1987 yearbook. Andwhile
X
applaud the efforts of those who assembled it,I must express my outrage at the caption "Abe SmithDies" on page
51.
;U
*First, Abe Smith did notdie; he broke his leg in theVillanova football game
last fSeptember
and, as waspictured, was removed
from
the
gamefbn a
stretcher.Either the author of the caption had a morbid sense ofhumor or was badly misinformed. In either case, thereis no excuse for something like that!
*
Second, with all the
football
pictures available, whywas that one even used?
I
Abe Smith left Mercyhurst after his hospital stayand,
Fm
told,
entered ^the
service recently.The Athletic Department
wishes Aim
the best.
