1 the draw
By SIMONE PAM
The 86 women and 117 men who
were unsuccessful in Thursday and
Fridays two housing lotteries now
have the option of resubmitting their
housing contract for the general
drawing or withdrawing their con
tract from the lottery process.
Students requesting a triple or
quad room participated in the first
drawing on Thursday, and students
requesting an area change partici
pated in Friday's drawing. As these
students names were- drawn, they
were given their 'first-choice hall
preferences based upon their con
tracts, if space was available, he said.
If no space was available in the
requested areas, the students' names
will be submitted to the general hall
drawing for their residence halls on
Collin Rustin, associate director
for administration of housing, said 5
percent of the space in every residence
area is reserved for students making
area changes. The number of spaces
allocated for area changes within each
residence hall depends on the size of
the hall and the number of rising
sophomores who chose to remain in
Students who are not successful in
any of these drawings will be placed
in the waiting list drawing to deter
mine their position on a central
waiting list, Bischoff said. The waiting
list drawing is Feb. 24.
If a student is placed on the waiting
list, the student will be notified as
soon as a space is available, said
Wayne Kuncl, director of housing. "It
(the waiting list) is based on cancel
lations of students who cancel their
residence hall contracts, and as those
cancellations come in, then we begin
to move those students off the waiting
list and into the spaces that they have
chosen," he said.
"My real hope is that when we do
our room drawings that 95 percent
of those students are immediately
assigned to residence halls," Kuncl
Rustin said: "Any student who is
flexible can be provided with on
campus housing. If a student on the
waiting list asks for a high rise, they
can get one if they want one."
STOW area director, said: "A lot of
students are feeling a lot of anxiety
about not getting the room they
wanted. The area directors try to
work with the students to give them
the best possible situation possible."
STOW did not have to do a
drawing in Old East and Spencer last
year, McMillen-Cannon said. "It
appears as if the numbers are evening
out," she said.
Most of the moves are being made
from South Campus to North or Mid
campus, Kuncl said. In addition,
students seeking an area change have
a better chance of getting what they
want if they request a triple or quad,
Women have the best chance for
an area change to Ruffin, which will
be reopening after being closed for
renovations this year, Rustin said.
Rising sophomores are guaranteed
the same room or another room in
their residence hall without entering
the lottery, if they choose, said Mark
Bischoff, assistant area director in
Hinton James. -..
Rising sophomores will be given
the room they request, if this year's
residents are not returning, based
upon the last four digits of their social
The number being used to deter
mine placement is 5872. For students
who submitted their applications
together, the best number out of the
group will be used.
In Olde Campus Residence Area,
about 80 percent of all rising sopho
mores are expected to return to their
current rooms, said Roger Nelson,
Olde Campus area director. Rising
sophomores compose 40 percent of
the area, and incoming freshman are
reserved less than 50 percent, he said.
Many freshmen are very relieved
that they do not have to go through
the lottery process, Nelson said. In
addition, the upperclassmen who
choose to remain on campus should
be given the opportunity to do so if
they want to, he said.
The decision to guarantee sopho
more housing and include upperclass
men in a central lottery was based
on parent and student feedback,
surveys and two and a half years of
study, Kuncl said. .
"We really do not feel that it will
have a significant impact on the
juniors and seniors who want to
return to the residence halls," he said.
"But we actually don't know until we
go through the drawing.
"We work very hard to build strong
residential communities where people
enjoy living where they are and the
last thing I want them to do is to
move off campus if they don't want
to move. We want them to keep
The -Residence Hall Association
(RHA) opposed guaranteed sopho
more housing, and presented a
counterproposal that was not
accepted. Jimmy Randolph, RHA
president, said, "It has not been
decided the way I feel is the best, but
it has been decided." "
The RHA intends to closely mon
itor and evaluate the current policy
to decide if it is the best system,
The advice Randolph gave to
upperclassmen who do not get back
into the residence halls was to wait.
"If you wait until August, you can
.even get in the hall of your choice,"
"Any student who is flexible can be
provided with on-campus housing."
