AM six of the referendums on the
ballot Tuesday passed by comfortable
rriargins, according to unofficial
results early Wednesday morning.
vThe referendum with the closest
vote was the Student Recreation
Center (SRC) referendum, which
passed with 56 percent of the vote.
The referendum called for a $13
increase in student fees during the
school year and a $4,75 increase in
summer school fees. Students said
Tuesday that they had mixed feelings
about the addition of the center.
Chris Brown, a sophomore from
Winston-Salem, said he voted against
the referendum because he felt
existing weight facilities are sufficient.
"I think they are not utilized and I
resent that even more nature will be
shoved aside for a monolithic rec
building," he said.
Anthony Nesbit, a sophomore
from New Bern, said he voted for the
SRC because he liked the idea of a
centralized physical education center

One reason the vote was so close
was the confusion over some of the
logistics of planning the center, Frye
said. "Some people were under the

tear down trees to build it," she said.
