When Autumn Duke found
out her on-campus housing
assignment had been moved
off campus this summer, she
couldn't believe it.
"I called my mom and I was
like 'are you serious'?" Duke
The senior from Charlotte
applied for housing during
the scheduled application
period. A week after she
received the notice that she
was assigned to Wilson
Hall, she got an official e-
mail informing her she had
been reassigned to one of
three hotels — Wingate by
Wyndham, Hawthorne INN
or Brookstown Inn -- in
downtown Winston-Salem.
Duke is one of approxi
mately 140 WSSU students
assigned to one of three
hotels in the city, according to
Assistant Vice Chancellor for
Student Affairs Calvin
Phillips said that the depart
ment of housing and residence
life usually reserves about 900 of
the 2,377 beds for incoming
freshmen each year.
More than 1,300 freshmen
were accepted this past
"We were asked for more
space [for freshmen]," Phillips
"We were able to accommo
date the freshmen to a point.
We had a meeting with the
Chancellor Reaves, and he
decided to guarantee housing
for freshmen."

no longer be the Ram offen
sive coordinator because he
was accused of making a
racial epithet during a team
"In the best interest of the
football program, the team, the
athletic department and the
University, mutual separation
was the right thing to do," ath
letic director Chico Caldwell
said in an interview with the
Winston-Salem journal.
Caldwell said that the [ath
letic department's] decision
was harsh, and a swift
response was called for to
allow time for ample research
and to look into all the details
to make a final decision.
Calcutta had coached the first
game and was suspended indefi
nitely by the second game.
