As football at Berry College draws clos-er, the search for a head football coach has begun.A committee of faculty, staff, studentsand alumni has been formed to select the
rst football coach at Berry, said Dr. Paula
Englis, who is part of the committee.Cindy Marchant, Berry College’s Hu-man Resources manager, said that therewere 254 applicants for the position of head football coach. However, SGA Execu-tive Board Secretary Stacey Fronek, who isa student representative on the search com-mittee, said that they have pared that num- ber down to eight prospective coaches.“We turn in our top 3-4 candidates by
April 1st, and the nal selection will bemade by President Briggs and the admin
-istration soon afterward,” Fronek said.
President Stephen R. Briggs said he
would become more involved in the se-lection process when the candidate poolnarrows.Briggs said the ideal candidate wouldhave experience in coaching, knowledge of 
Division III football, meet standard lead
-ership and character requirements and be
familiar with institutions like Berry. Pref 
-erence would be given to candidates witha master’s degree, so they could performother functions at the college, rather than just coaching.
Fronek said there are ve main criterionfor choosing the rst head football coach.The rst criterion is that the coach would
 build an excellent football program at Ber-ry, with a good win-loss record.Second, the coach should bring in excel-
lent Division III athletes. He also should
provide good leadership and characterdevelopment to the incoming athletes.Next, the coach must be able to encouragestudent athletes of all sports to become in-volved on Berry’s campus and in studentorganizations.
Finally, the committee hopes to nd a
head coach that uses football as a serviceto the surrounding community of Romeand build support for Berry through thatservice.

Bike policy has littleeffect on students
kristen sellers
Deputy News Editor
At the end of January, the of-
ce of Residence Life implement
-ed a new bike policy on campusto make sure bikes are being tak-en care of properly when parkedat residence halls and academic buildings.
Director of Residence Life andAssistant Dean of Students Lind
-sey Taylor said only three bikeshave been collected from beingchained and parked in places oth-er than designated bike racks.These bikes have been im-pounded and still have not beenretrieved or inquired upon bytheir owners but are still avail-able to retrieve after paying the$25 fee which will go to a fund formore covered bike areas aroundcampus.Taylor said she is very pleasedthat so far there have only beenthree bikes impounded becauseshe originally expected to haveto impound bikes in mass quanti-ties when the policy initially took place.“It has been pretty successful but also low key,” Taylor said.The primary areas of focusover the past few weeks have been bikes at the residence halls,
specically bikes locked to stair
-wells and railings.Since these main issues have been solved near living areas,the policy focus will now beginto shift. In the upcoming weeks,the target area to improve isKrannert.To remedy the problem areain front of Krannert, ResidenceLife asks all students to park their bikes outside of their respectiveresidence hall before leaving forSpring Break so they can evalu-ate what bikes are abandoned andnot in use outside of non-residen-tial buildings.Taylor said there is a trend thatmany students leave their bikesparked outside of Krannert andabandoning them for days at atime which takes up space forother students actually wantingthe frequent and daily use of theracks.

Reading day added before nals
Kelly DIcKerson
News Editor
Berry will now have a reading day onWednesday, April 25 before nal exams.The idea is to have a day separating thelast day of classes and the start of exams.Assistant Dean of Students and Directorof Residence Life Lindsey Taylor said she believes the day was added because classesusually end on a Friday and students havethe weekend to study before nal exams begin on the following Monday.“The semester started on a Monday thisyear instead of a Wednesday, hence the addi
tion of the reading day and two free days,”Taylor said.Dean of Students Debbie Heida saidunderclassmen have always been expectedto move out before graduation so there is notany real change this year.Taylor said that in addition to the read
ing days, there will be two days between thelast day of exams and the graduation cer
emony. Students who are not graduating areexpected to check out May 3 by 6 p.m. andgraduating seniors are expected to move out by May 5 at 6 p.m.While there will be more time between theend of exams and graduation, Taylor said shethinks it will feel the same for students.“Usually we have about a third of stu
dents who leave right after their exam is over,a third who linger for things like training andwatching graduation and a third who arerequired to stay, whether for participationin graduation or summer programs,” Taylorsaid. “We won’t be kicking anyone out whowants to watch their friend graduate.” Junior Delanie Miller said there are posi
tive and negative aspects to the calenderchange.“I have to nd a storage unit for the sum
mer since I live in Florida so I don’t reallylike having to move out earlier, but I’m superhappy about the reading day because to behonest I could use it,” Miller said.Taylor said many organizations on cam
pus have expressed interest in using the twodays between the last day of exams and grad
uation as training days for student workers.“Many student work areas have in thepast required students to stay after gradua
tion,” Taylor said. “With the extra two daysthis year, we’ve had a lot of groups expressinterest in using those two days to get theirtraining done.”Some groups that may be utilizing the freetwo days include Residence Life, the Multi
cultural Ofce, the Cage Center lifeguardsand the Freshmen Mentor Program.Taylor said there is also another day off from classes on April 10 for the Symposiumon Student Scholarship. This is an opportu
nity for students to present things like thesesor capstone projects they are working on. Tay
lor said the hope is that other students willattend and participate in the symposium.Students who attend any of the themedsessions of the symposium, dened as thoseincluding at least four student presenta
tions each 15-20 minutes long, can earn a CEcredit.

Englis said that the search for a footballcoach has been national, and the committeehas already been through several roundsof application reviews and telephone inter
views with all of the candidates. After thisprocess, the committee narrowed down thesearch to the top few candidates.“We are currently conducting Skypeinterviews with the top eight candidatesand then we will make the nal selection of the top three or four candidates, bring themon campus and then submit a nal recom
mendation to College President Stephen R.Briggs and Dean of Students Debbie Heida.Then the administration will make the naldecision for a football coach,” said Fronek.“The committee is well rounded,” Eng
lis said. “They have put in a lot of timeworking on this search,” said Englis.“Everyone on the committee is reallyengaged,” said Fronek.

The new bike policy on campus has led
