Approximately 3,200 freshmen art
expeaed to enter UNC this fall, University
officials said. The number represents a
decrease of more than 250 from the 1979
If you were ticketed for" parking without
a 1980-1981 UNC parking sticker between
July 1 and July 11, don't worry about it.
Melba Hill, violation coordinator for the
UNC traffic office, said that all parking
tickets issued for no permit or no valid

The 1980-1981 parking stickers were
required for vehicles parked on the campus
beginning July 1. In the past, warning
citations were issued for the first week.
"We found out that this year they were
citing people," Charles Antle, assistant
vice chancellor said. Some cars were
ticketed with violations and some with
warning citations, depending on the lot, he
All citations which are outstanding in
the traffic office files are being voided.
"The decision was made to be even-handed
about this," he said. .
During the first 11 days of July, more
than 2,000 parking tickets were issued for a
variety of violations, Antle said.

An exact figure will not be available
until late September. "It's tough at this
time to figure (the number) because we
know they all won't show up," said Tim
Sanford of the UNC register's office.
UNC operates on a state-set enrollment
budget which requires a certain
enrollment, said Claiborne Jones,
executive assistant to the chancellor. ' 'More
students are admitted to allow for those
who decide not to enter UNC."
The 1980 freshmen should not have as
much trouble as last year's in obtaining
desired classes during registration, saidlna
Darden of the registration office. ' 'Students
take basically the same classes at least it
seems that way," she said.
Darden said that foreign languages,

more English I classes after many freshmen

began Wednesday. This, however does not
mean a freshman is preregistered for
classes. They will meet with their,
appointed advisers during Orientation
Week, Aug. 18-25 before registration.
Housing is another potential problem.
Last year, 556 students were tripled when
school began. Some students remained in
this situation until second semester.
Although some tripling can be expected,
the number should be much smaller this
year, said Russell Perry, UNC associate
director for housing operations. "More
people always show up on the first day than
we have given space," he said.
Study lounges will be used first as extra
rooms, Perry said. Their use will depend on
room sizes, which rooms have carpet, study
desks and other factors. Areas of the
campus will not be determining factors,
