IFetser gyiira' complete opens ne'yeai9 late ,? Monday, August 24, 1981The Daily Tar Heel3A O 9 r By LINDA ROBERTSON DTH Starr Writer The Robert A. Fetzer Gymnasium, fi nally completed after many construction delays, opens its doors to UNC students today. Although the complex was finished more than a year behind schedule, the final cost of $5,937,000 was within the original estimate, said Jake Bryant, direc tor of engineering and construction. "Without a doubt Fetzer Gym will in crease the quantity and quality of the University's instructional and recreational programs," Intramural Director Ed Shields said. .The facility has three separate gymna siums, two with maple floors and the third covered with a polyurethane surface. A, B and C gyms are marked for basketball, volleyball and badminton. There an two multi-purpose rooms. One will beuse&Tor wrestling practice and combative courses such as karate and judo. The other, mir rored room will be used primarily for fencing. The 152,000 square foot complex also houses an exercise physiology lab and a motor performance lab. Sports Medicine will be headquartered in Fetzer rather than in the Sports Med hut located by the out door track. There will be six locker rooms, two dressing rooms and a large basket room with four windows for co-ed checkout of equipment. Fetzer Gymnasium will also serve an administrative purpose, housing 18 physi cal education department offices. In ad dition, there are two conference rooms and five classrooms, one with a 200-person capacity. Six regulation squash courts and 15 racquetballhandball courts are scheduled for completion in late September. The courts will have an open area behind the upper back wall for viewing and instruc . tional purposes. There will also be tiered seating for audiences. T Completion, dates for campus buildings set t. i fr " l)1JW, DTHScott Sharpe The long wait is finally over. Fetzer Gymnasium opens today "They still have to put some finishing touches on all the courts, but hopefully they will be completed wjthin the next month or so," Shields said. "In February 1982 there is the possibility of a profes sional handball tournament being held in Fetzer. , " ' . "Everybody is certainly delighted to finally move in," Shields said. "The In tramural Department . will benefit from the new facility, as well as the Athletic Department, and the broader University will benefit due to the fact that the class rooms will be utilized by other depart ments. Fetzer Gym is a big boost to all the programs." Survey reveals medical treatment satisfactory By MARK SCHOEN DTH Staff Writer ., A total of 86 percent of the UNC students surveyed by the Division of Student Affairs were satisfied with 'then medical treatment they received at the Student-Health.-Service during the 1980-1981 school year, according to a report presented to the UNC Board of Trustees cjuring.its meeting in Kill Devil Hills Friday. fV. t,v , The survey, which was conducted in March,, was par of a three-phase assessment of the programs and sejyipps ' offered by the health service, Donald A. Boulton, vice chancellor for student affairs, said Sunday. During the survey, 1,854 students and 623 .parents' returned the questionnaires, which covered such4 aspects of the service as utilization and appraisal, choice of medical care, funding and extent of service and health insurance. " , ;; (i The results of the survey are expected to play a large part in the evaluation and planning for the health ser vice, Boulion said. , ''It gives us as much a reading of the diversity of our students as we could get," he said. "Our sample went through each student group and is one we can make decisions from." - .' '' '" The results of the first stage of the project, a report written by a consultant from the American College Health Association, also was presented to the board. The consultant, who visited the UNC:Chapel Hill cam pus in April, studied such aspects as the service's funding system and fiscal management. The consultant, Dr. Paul Rupprecht of the University of Minnesota, said that his observations indicated that "the great majority of the students' health needs are be ing met." He added, however, that the service's staff should "become more involved in the campus communi ty" and that efforts should be made to improve business management. Phase three of the project, in which a consultant will evaluate the health services programs, is scheduled to start this fall. No further details of this evaluation were available. A total of 70 percent of the students and 64 percent of the parents that responded to the survey said they were satisfied with UNC's practice of charging a high health fee but making a comprehensive care program available. According to the report, UNC charges one of the highest .college health fees in the country. The survey also found that 93 percent of the students questioned had used the service during the 1980-1981 academic year. Of those, 98 percent said they were satis fied with the facilities and 92 percent were happy, with the attitude of the staff. Two-thirds of the students re sponding were satisfied with the waiting time for treat ment. . . The report recommended that studies be made con cerning greater publicity for the service. A total of 35 percent of the students said they were unaware that they could receive treatment for a particular problem at SHS. In the section of the report concerning specialty clin ics, 84 percent of the students surveyed said they were satisfied for the treatment they received. A majority of the parents and students said that it was either "very im portant, or moderately important" that the health ser vices continue to offer such treatment as diagnostic tests, emergency dental care, in-patient care, pharmacy services and 24-hour emergency care. A number of questions were recommended for further study. Included were the possibility of reducing bed space in the 37-bed in-patient unit, decreasing waiting time, staggering physicians' lunch hours' so that treat ment would be available between noon and 2 p.m. Boulton said he was pleased with the 76.5 percent return rate from the students and 62.7 percent response rate from the parentsi From Staff Reports Renovations to Playmakers' Theatre will be completed this fall while the new central library will not be completed until next year, said Selwyn N. Bryant, director of the department of Engineering and Construction. Bryant said the renovations to the theater would be completed in October and the library is scheduled to be finished in September 1982. Theater renovations include installation of new columns, shutters and wiring. A ramp also will be installed in the restrobm facilities to help the handicapped. The roof and basement of the theater also will be made leak-proof. "When it rained, there used to be stand ing water in the theater," said Edgar Mar ston, manager of Playmakers Repertory Company. The renovations will cost $157,000, Bryant said? The newlibrary will replace the Louis R. Wilson Library as the central library, and will hold 1 .3 million books in its two main floors and six floors of stacks. The central library's construction budget is es timated at $23.3 million. The new art department building next to Ackland Art Museum, begun last Au gust, is scheduled to be finished in Sep tember 1982. The structure has now reached its full 3 '2-story construction. The $6.16 million building will house a library, classrooms, faculty offices, stu dios and a lecture hall. Other construction to be completed this fall will be the Health Sciences Library in November and renovations to Beard Hall in December. An addition to Finley Golf Course is scheduled to be completed in the spring of 1982. New studios and classrooms for art stu dents in LCnoir Hall are scheduled to be finished in September 1982. In Graham Memorial, renovation plans are to improve lighting and window blinds in the UNC Laboratory Theatre. Also in cluded are plans for updated restrooms and a renovated basement to improve working conditions for the costume makers.

Non-resident is $2,260, up from $2,074. The fees for this year are $257.50. The tuition increases are the result of a legislative mandate for the 16-campus UNC system to raise its tuition revenues by 13 percent, UNC Vice Chancellor for Business and Finance John L. Temple said. Temple said the increases at UNC-CH were in line with increases at the other schools in the system. However, tuition does vary throughout the system based on enrollment and fields of study offered. Tuition at UNC-Wilmington and UNC Asheville will be lowered to make their tuition equal to that at schools which do not have graduate programs. Eleanor Morris, director of the Finan cial Aid Office, said that her office origi nally estimated the increases low. The estimate was $11 low for in-state " SfudehTs and "$60 short for out-of-state , . i ne estimates were used to make, ciai aid awards tor this finan- vear. The office will not be able to make up the difference for in-state students, Morris said, but might be able to help out-of-state students. Fees for this year at UNC-Chapel Hill are: .
