    20,000 Fans Expected to Attend
1994 CIAA Tournament
New Residence Hall
The Office of Residence Life has
not released an official statement
concerning the opening date for the
new residence hall. The contractors
have not finished the construction
phase of the building process. The
inclement weather during January and
February slowed down the
construction schedule. At presstime,
the residence hall did not belong to
Winston-Salem State University
because it has not been completed.
Making A Move?
College students graduating this
year may want to consider moving to
Boise, ID; Nashville, TN; or even
Springfield, MO. Believe it or not,
these are the three most popular large
US cities Americans moved to in
1993, reports Ryder, the nation’s
largest truck rental and leasing
company, in its annual survey of
where Americans move each year.
If looking for a smaller city to
move to, graduates should consider.
Grand Junction, CO; Jackson, TN; and
Billings, MT. These are the top three
most popular small cities Americans
moved to in 1993, the survey reports.
Ryder lists small cities as those with
less than 100,000 residents.
Ranked by the ratio of inbound to
outbound moves, Charlotte, NC was
ranked number 16 in the 20 most
popular destinations with populations
over 100,000. Wilmington, NC was
ranked number 10 in the 20 most
popular destinations with populations
under 100,000.

Welcome to Winston-Salem CIAA
For several months the City of
Winston-Salem has been preparing for the
over 20,000 fans that will be in our city
during the week of February 20 - 27th.
City representatives spent several hours
and lots of money on persuading the
CIAA Tournament to come to our fair
city. Since the CIAA made its decision,
Winston-Salem residents have been
talking about how our city will be griped
in “Tournament Fever” the latter part of
February. That time has finally arrived!
The CIAA Tournament is said to be
the biggest convention that Winston-
Salem has ever hosted! For the next three
years, the Central Intercollegiate Athletic
Association is scheduled to have its
basketball tournament at the Lawrence
Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum. The
Winston-Salem Chamber of Commerce projected that approximately $8
million will be added to Winston-Salem’s
local economy each year the tournament
is played here.
The CIAA is composed of 14
Parking is still a very big problem
here at Winston-Salem State University.
The questions most faculty and staff
members and students ask are, “When
will the problem be solved?” and “Is
there anyone on campus that is slightly
concerned about the situation?”
One of the main reasons for this
problem is that some drivers still haven’t
bothered to purchase a parking decal.
The decals cost $50 for faculty and staff
and S30 for students.
Many commuting students feel that

conference in the National Collegiate

Along with the tournament’s games,
several exciting activities have been
they pay too much for a parking decal and
still have to walk across campus to their
classes. This is just an excuse. This
campus isn’t that large. At most colleges
and universities, commuting students have
to park in peripheral lots and walk to the
main campus.
Robin Curtis, a sophomore
Psychology major said, “I feel there is not
enough parking spaces for communting
students. The parking lots that are
designated for communting students are
far away. I feel tho,se lots should be for
the boarding students.”
planned throughout the week. A fashion
show, art exhibits, concerts, a
cheerleading exhibition, shopping tours,
alumni dances and a golf tournament are
examples of some of the many activities
that have been planned for CIAA fans.

“I don’t like the parking situation.
They (security) are trying to limit the
parking spaces. I feel that if I pay $30 for
a parking decal, I should be able to park
where I want,” said Tonya Brewer, a
junior Mass Communications major.
Faculty and staff members feel if they
are forced to purchase a parking sticker,
they should be able to park in designated
faculty/staff parking lots and spaces. This
