Campus
shuffles
facility
names
Rams Head, halls
among changes
BY LAUREN BERRY
STAFF WRITER
Two months after the demoli
tion of a South Campus landmark,
students in need of a reminder of
Chase Dining Hall can be com
forted to know that at least its
name will live on.
The dining hall located in
Rams Head Center has been
renamed Chase Dining Hall at
Rams Head.
Chase Dining Hall at Rams
Head is named after University
President Harry Woodburn
Chase, who is accredited with the
campus expansion seen during
the 19205.
Other plans also have been
made to change the name of
Morrison South Residence Hall
to Paul Hardin Residence Hall,
commemorating the former chan
cellor.
Officials have yet to rename the
three other new South Campus
residence halls Ehringhaus
South, Craige North and Hinton
James North —but they intend
to.
Hardin, who served as chan
cellor from 1988 to 1995, was
responsible for organizing
UNC’s bicentennial celebration
in 1995.
Paul Kapp, campus historic
preservation manager, said
the tradition of memorializing
University leaders is a way to
honor those who have dedicated
themselves to the University.
“Historically, buildings have
been named after great University
alumni or professors who have
made notable contributions to the
University or the state of North
Carolina,” he said.
Kapp also said naming build
ings after past leaders ensures their
names and legacies are not lost
Given the honor that comes
with being a building’s namesake,
the University established a com
mittee to review the names being
considered.
The committee’s guidelines
for naming detail the qualifica
tions required, such as dona
tions of service and funds to the
University.
The guidelines also state that the
name given to a building remains
as long as the building does.
With this policy in place, the
demolition of a number of build
ings on campus brings into ques
tion the future of their name
sake.
Such is the case for Abemethy

“AHEC’s focus is almost
exclusively, I would say, on edu
cation,” said David Perry, execu
tive associate dean for adminis
tration at the UNC-CH School of
Medicine.
“Their job is to help create
opportunities for education to
take place in these underserved
locations.”
Partnering up
Making that happen on a
statewide scale has required close
relationships between regional
program offices which coor
dinate the needs of local com
munities —and the state’s major
health centers.
By bringing in expert faculty
members from Chapel Hill and
elsewhere, the program gives
health workers in local commu
nities access to continuing edu
cation courses and current train
ing in a wide range of fields.
“That’s crucial because they’re
up to date on things, and they’re
a resource we have access to
that helps us keep our programs
cost-effective,” said Anita Pulley,

Tuition
an issue
for every
student
A hot topic on campus these days
is tuition.
Accusations have been made
regarding my stance on tuition, and
I feel like I should address them to
dispel any misconceptions. As your
SBP, I am co-chairman of the tuition
task force and serve on the Board of
Trustees. After a series of meetings
and subsequent
discussions, the
task force sends a
recommendation
to the Trustees
regarding tuition.
So in essence,
I lead a task force
that reports back
to me; it seems
infallibly logical
that I should take
the opportunity
presented in the
task force to listen
to others’opinions
prior to enact

Trustee. That said, here you have it,
everything you want to know about
tuition in less than 750 words.
Tuition accounts for about $2.1
million, which is roughly 16 percent
of the $1.3 billion that the University
brings in each year, according to
a report from the Office of the
Provost.
The tuition rate philosophy that
has been adopted at UNC is to
remain in the bottom 25 percent of
our national public peer universities
for in-state tuition, and not to exceed
the 75 percent of these same peers for
out-of-state rates.
As it stands we are currently
well below these tuition caps.
