The Office of Residential Education (ResEd)has implemented changes to the financial policiesfor student-managed Row houses over the recentmonths,following the identification of several“compliance issues”during a general reviewprocess,according to administrators.These changes,some of which have enduredwhile others have not,included more Universityoversight of student house dues and vendor pay-ment.In an email to The Daily,Assistant Dean of ResEd Nate Boswell referenced the Sept.2010 hir-ing of Director of Operations Aaron Buzay as theresult of a larger review process conducted by Deb-orah Golder,dean of ResEd.“The hiring of this position increased oversightof all operational and financial activities in ResEdand supplemented existing partnerships with Busi-ness Affairs,”Boswell said.“During the first com-prehensive review conducted by Director Buzay,the department identified several compliance is-sues that required attention and worked togetherwith the Auditing Office and other Business Affairspartners to make corrections.”This past spring,ResEd prohibited Row housesfrom using social dues to purchase alcohol,citing aschool policy that restricts University funds frombeing used to buy alcohol for those under the ageof 21.Several house financial managers (FMs)noted that under the previous system,Stanfordcould be held legally responsible in the case of analcohol-related accident,since the purchases weremade through University-owned bank accounts.At the outset of this autumn quarter,the Uni-versity introduced a new round of changes to Rowfinancial policies.ResEd standardized Row house social dues at$75 and began collecting this fee through students’University bills instead of through student FMs.ResEd also experimented with the way Row housefood vendors are paid,shifting the responsibilityfrom FMs to the Row Central Office for the firstfive weeks of the quarter.A new staff member,Financial Associate JoArredondo,is charged with looking over weeklyhouse budget reports and serves as a point personfor FMs.These changes raised several questions for FMsabout the shifting nature of their role and what au-tonomy they can expect to have in the future.“We are committed to preserving the coretenets of the student management program whichis geared towards enabling student leaders to buildvibrant,intimate residential communities,”wroteBoswell and Buzay in a joint email to The Daily.

All 275 students returning from over-seas for winter quarter have been as-signed to housingan improvementover previous years’ numerous last-minute assignments.Because the University offers fewerstudy-abroad programs winter quarter,more students require housing.In orderto deal with the influx of housing appli-cations,Student Housing has opened 114additional undergraduate spaces26in Escondido Village and 88 in OakCreek.It leased additional apartments inOak Creek and consolidated graduatestudents in Escondido Village to createthese spaces.This year,40 percent of the studentsreturning from overseas will be in Es-condido Village or Oak Creek.“By providing space in Oak Creekand Escondido Village,we are able tokeep some groups together,which is anoption we were unable to offer in thepast,”said Rodger Whitney,executive di-rector of Student Housing,in an email toThe Daily.At this time last year,over 50 studentswith guaranteed housing were still on thewaiting list,compared with 36 this year.Housing said it expects to assign all stu-dents on the waiting list over winter break.

Stanford’s Occupy movement continues to evolve
By MARSHALL WATKINS
CONTRIBUTING WRITER
More than one month afterthe Occupy protests spread tothe West Coast,members of theStanford community continueto be actively involved with themovement.Students,staff andfaculty have maintained the“Occupy Stanford”movementwhile also developing an “Occu-py the Futureinitiative inhopes of mobilizing the broaderUniversity community.Both Stanford students andlaw enforcement officers fromthe University’s Department of Public Safety (SUDPS) havebeen extensively involved inBay Area Occupy protests.Stanford sheriffs,along withPalo Alto PD officers,were dis-patched to assist Oakland PD inevicting Occupy protestors froma city encampment on Oct.25.The ensuing confrontation re-sulted in the use of riot gear andless-than-lethal ammunition bylaw enforcement,as well as over100 arrests and critical injuriesto a protesting Iraq War veter-an.The first Occupy Stanfordgeneral assembly took place onOct.14 in White Plaza.Severalstudents have made repeatedtrips to Bay Area Occupy move-ments,with some present duringthe Oct.25 crackdown in Oak-land and a larger contingentparticipating in the successfultakeover of the Oakland cityport on Nov.2.

The office of the Vice Provostfor Undergraduate Education(VPUE) hopes to complete a reno-vation of the Undergraduate Acad-emic Life (UAL) website by thestart of the 2012-13 academic year,VPUE Project Manager TeganBradford said.The renovation willinclude the creation of a new web-site for centrally located informa-tion concerning undergraduatemajors.Bradford set a tentative Maymilestone for launching the Ap-proaching Stanford portion of theUAL sitethe portion with infor-mation pertinent to incomingfreshmenfor the incomingClass of 2016;but because no ven-dor has been selected,the timelineis tentative,she said.The 400-page UAL site wasmost recently renovated in 2007.“We hope that the site will be auseful advising tool and enable stu-dents to explore and plan their ed-ucations more intentionally,”Asso-ciate Vice Provost for Undergradu-ate Education Sharon Palmerwrote in an email to The Daily.VPUE drew inspiration for thenew majors website from a BrownUniversity site called Focal Pointthat aggregates information oneach undergraduate major in an in-teractive display.The Brown site is an attractivemodel because it allows students toeasily navigate between the re-

dergraduate Senate Deputy ChairDan Ashton ’14 authored a letteron Nov.29 to be distributed en-couraging the SUDPS to avoid vi-olence when dispersing protestorson University grounds and to re-main respectful of student dia-logue.“Regardless of the causes of the violence at those schools,pro-tection of student safety is cer-tainly something about which stu-dent government should be pas-sionate,Ashton wrote in anemail to The Daily.“I have no rea-son to believe that Stanford po-lice will react violently to studentprotests.Laura Wilson,Chief of Police,has done a wonderful jobthus far of enabling free assembly,and I see no reason why thatwon’t continue.”Wilson confirmed that theSUDPS has met internally andwith other University officials todiscuss potential responses to situ-ations involving the Occupymovements.She added thatSUDPS officers were trained touseif necessarya level oforce just enough to overcome thelevel of resistance,and she notedthat the use of pepper spray onnonviolent protesters would notbe authorized.Wilson played down concernsabout the Occupy movement atStanford,writing in an email toThe Daily that,“so far,the indi-viduals involved with this move-ment have been respectful of oth-ers and have not interfered withthe academic mission of the insti-tution.My hope is that this com-munity will continue to engage inintellectual,respectful andpeaceful means of dialogue sothat police intervention is not re-quired.”While acknowledging thatthere is currently no consistentand ongoing dialogue betweenSUDPS and students involved inOccupy Stanford,Wilson notedthat SUDPS and students success-fully communicated in advance of the anti-police brutality rally thattook place before Big Game.“Should the need arise,we willcertainly meet with students.If students want to speak with usabout their plans,we are happy tomeet with them as well,”Wilsonwrote.
Occupy Meyer
Occupy Stanford has continuedto protest on campus,most recent-ly establishing a permanent pres-ence in the lobby of Meyer Li-brary.Occupy Meyer,where themovement has also held GeneralAssembly meetings,was devel-opedaccording to participantsas a means of emphasizingStanford’s ongoing relevance tothe Occupy movement.The move-ment currently mans a table in thelibrary lobby around the clock.“The symbolism of occupyingan academic place is important,”said Zach O’Keeffe ’13.“We wantto open up a space for intellectualdialogue,to discuss problems andsolutions in a very academic way.[At Occupy Meyer] there’s the fis-sion of the intellectual and aca-demic with the activist and pro-gressive nature of the Occupymovement.”O’Keeffe added that the groupchose Meyer instead of Green Li-brary in order to minimize disrup-tion to students.Joshua Schott ’14noted that occupying Meyer alsogave the movement the ability toreach more students in an areawhich is heavily trafficked.Students involved with OccupyStanford highlighted other effortsbeing undertaken by the move-ment.Current initiatives includeinvestigating the disbursement of Stanford’s endowment to ensurethat all expenditure is conductedin a socially responsible manner,protesting recruitment events forfirms deemed to have acted in asocially irresponsible manner andsupporting anti-inequality groupson campus.Schott said that Occupy Stan-ford is currently in the process of forming a working group to devel-op more long-term initiatives,suchas creating a major or even a thinktank to advance the cause of re-ducing inequalities in the politicaland economic arenas.“Occupy Stanford is a lastingmovement,”Schott said.“What’shappening now is just the begin-ning.”Occupy Stanford participantsacknowledged that the movementhas received mixed feedback fromthe Stanford community.“I think we haven’t been able toreach out to the Stanford commu-nity,Schott said.He claimed that the movementhas suffered from both skepticismthat Stanford students could iden-tify with the issues of “the 99 per-cent”and from negative portray-als of Occupy protests by themedia.Schott added that themovement needs to demonstratethat Stanford is both affected byissues affecting the broader worldand will be part of the solution tothose issues.“I think the people voicing op-position have done so morestrongly,”O’Keeffe said.“Butmost people recognize that thereare legitimate grievances.Therehas been a surprising amount of backing from the ASSU and thefaculty.”Members were largely opti-mistic about Occupy Stanford’ssuccess thus far.“I’m prouder to be here afterseeing all the progress we’vemade,O’Keeffe said.“I’m hope-ful for the future and sure that [themovement] will continue to grow.”
Occupy the Future
Partially in response to and in-spired by Occupy Stanford,acoalition of students,staff and fac-ulty developed the Occupy the Fu-ture movement.The initiative,which will put on a teach-in,rallyand public forum on Friday,Dec.9,was developed independently of Occupy Stanford,but the twomovements share many commonpersonnel and objectives.“We see Occupy Stanford aspart of a broader movement,”saidDouglas McAdam,professor of sociology.“We’re very sympathet-ic,but we wanted to pursue thesame goals by different means.”Some Occupy Stanford mem-bers expressed concern about Oc-cupy the Future,viewing it as driv-en primarily by the ASSU,facultyand the University administration,although most still praised the ini-tiative’s concept and willingness toaddress real issues.“I’d like to see them work morewith the students,O’Keeffe said.“I worry that it’s a top-down ap-proach as opposed to the grass-roots approach the rest of the [Oc-cupy] movement has thrived on.”“The University has beenbroadly supportive,McAdamsaid.“You have to work with awhole lot of University offices togain various permissions,andeverybody’s really committed toensuring we can put the events wewant on.”Vice Provost for Student Af-fairs Greg Boardman describedOccupy the Future as an exclu-sively student-driven initiative.Occupy the Future organizerscredited Occupy Stanford withproviding the impetus for the Uni-versity community to develop Oc-cupy the Future.However,theydescribed Occupy the Future as amore enduring means of advanc-ing the cause of the Occupy move-ment and a potentially more ap-pealing method to the Stanfordcommunity.“Most of the people within theStanford community who I havetalked with have been incrediblysupportive of the Occupy the Fu-ture idea,wrote Haas Center forPublic Service Executive DirectorThomas Schnaubelt in an email toThe Daily.“I wouldn’t have gotteninvolved in Occupy the Future if Ididn’t believe that there is a goodchance for something long-lastingto come from it.”

ooking through a sunny Stanfordbrochure,it might be hard to imag-ine that students living on the Farmcould miss home.But,between bursts of midterms and othersources of stress,homesickness can manifestat arbitrary moments.Students can find them-selves beset by anxiety while groping for theworn surface of a childhood bed stand that isnot there;they may be assailed by pangs of nostalgia while looking at pictures of familyand old friends.And despite how contagious-ly happy everyone can seem to be on the sur-face,homesickness is not uncommon.“Homesickness is a completely normaland universal human experience,”said CAPSpsychologist Naomi Brown.“For most,it is anecessary developmental stage on the way togrowing up...most students work through itwithout any need from CAPS.”Homesickness cases are rarely reported tocounseling services such as CAPS or VadenHealth Center’s Bridge Peer CounselingCenter.This can mostly be chalked up to thefact that it is more often a symptom thana root problem.According to Brown,homesickness is a phase of adjustmentin which students learn to balance dis-tress,negative stress inherent in con-fronting a new environment,and eu-stress,the positive stress that accompanieschange and excitement.At the Bridge,I’ve never had a call thatwas specifically concerning homesickness,”said Twain peer health educator CorinneCoates ’12,who is also a Bridge counselor.“Instead,it really just tends to be somethingthat exacerbates other problems like room-mate conflicts and anxiety about grades...sometimes it’s hard for students to throwthemselves into Stanford,which ends up mak-ing it harder not to be homesick.”When homesickness it is purely a conse-quence of adjustment issues,certain demo-graphics within the student body are morelikely to experience it.Incoming freshmenmight come to mind first;however,smallersubsets of that group,such as internationalstudents or students who are similarly farfrom home,are particularly vulnerable.“When I first came here,it was really thecultural differ-ences that struckme,said Eri Gamo’15,a Taiwanese student.“The humor,themannerisms,the social interactions were allalien...adjustment has been the hardestpart of Stanford so far,and I think it con-tributed a lot to how homesick I was in thefirst few weeks of the quarter.”This sentiment is even shared bysome American students who are notfrom the West Coast.“It just felt like twice as much to get usedto in that I was bringing a Midwestern mind-set to California,”said Minnesota native Ali-son Matteo ’15.“It’s not that people weren’t

ate-night snacking fuels students to con-tinue working into the night,or perhapsgreets them as a beacon of solace,abreak from the tedious work that hasconsumed their day.While some opt toeat in the comfort of their own rooms (on cerealhoarded from the dining halls,pizza delivered totheir dorms or even snack food purchased fromany number of on- or off-campus conveniencestores),others stay local and let Stanford Diningsatisfy their hunger pangs.Stanford’s late-night dining options includeThe Dish at Arrillaga Family Dining Commons,Latenite at Lagunita and The Axe and Palm atOld Union.More than that though,students indulge inlate night dining because it introduces excitementinto the lives of overworked (and hungry) collegestudents:It is an excuse to avoid homework,aplace to catch up with friends,a last stop after along night on the Row or a different place tostudy.Visiting one of Stanford’s late-night dining fa-cilities is like walking into a popular bar,exceptinstead of beer,students are trying out a new fla-vor of milkshake or chicken tender.Each restau-rant is always loud,hectic and filled with the mostdiverse group of students imaginable at all hoursof the night:A couple with matching pink hairwatches viral videos;a band member using hiscelebrity status to try to score a complimentaryslice of pepperoni pizza;a stressed out freshmanthinking his red cup with “water”is fooling every-one and a boy trying to turn a group project intoa romantic first date.Although students all over campus have ac-cess to these dining options,each has its uniquelocation,clientele and signature food.The Axeand Palm,located next to Old Union,is a primespot for a variety of burgers and sandwiches;if beef is not your style,you can try a salmon,lambor garden burger.“I am almost out of my dining dollars becauseof The Axe and Palm,”said Sierra Freeman ’15.“Ican’t get enough of their burgers and fries.”The Dish at Arrillaga may not appeal as muchburger lovers with its primarily Mexican and Ital-ian themed menu,but it certainly has its fair shareof attendees.“It is such a different experience from regulardining at Arrillaga,but somehow you still feel likeeven the drinks are made by a gourmet chef,”saidKeith Wyngarden ’15.Latenite at Lagunita does not lack fans,either.“It is always quite an adventure,said ChrisBarnum ’14.“I love the food,and it’s also a greatplace to meet new people and relax after a longnight.”Despite the campus-wide love of late-nightdining,some students are hesitant to partake inlate-night snacking,worried about the extra calo-ries.However,Vivian Crisman,resident nutri-tionist at the Vaden Health Center,suggests thatthere is no need to stop snackingso long as the
