Hall seeks greener pastures
BY JENNA RAMAN
Add another building to the
list of campus construction sites
Greenlaw Hall will begin its
face-lift in December.
Greenlaw, one of the campus’s
more distinct buildings, will
undergo a more than $2.5 million
tion to meet
for a more up
ties, it would be great," said Michael
Dowdy, a graduate teaching fellow
for the English department, which
is housed in Greenlaw.
Dowdy, who has had an office in
the building for the past four years,
said while he likes the size of the
rooms in the building, they need to
be more technologically advanced.
One of the main changes in the
renovation is an Internet upgrade.

in classroom podiumsthat can oper
ate classrooms’ blinds, lights and
projector screen, said Diane Gillis,
the site’s design manager.
The technology used will be sim
ilar to that in some Dey Hall class
rooms. Along w ith the Internet
upgrade, a DVD player and a
VCR machine will be added to
Greenlaw’s classrooms, Gillis said.
The Greenlaw Hall renovation
will be broken dow r n into four
phases, Gillis said.
The first phase will involve work
on the ground floor's lobby and
classrooms and renovation on a
second floor classroom, she said.
“The work in the lobby will cre
ate a corridor from the stairs to
outside," Gillis said.
To renovate the lobby, construc
tion workers will have to travel
through the plaza of Lenoir Hall
to transport equipment, she said.
Though this might present a
challenge for the heavy traffic
through the area during the day,
much of the work will be done in
the early morning, Gillis said.
For a small duration for the ren
ovation, the north side of the build
ing, facing Murphev Hall, will be
unsecured at the time of the lar
ceny and an iPod, valued at $250,
was stolen from the car.

LTNC student was broken into

St., reports state. The car was
unlocked, and the suspect stole
$67 worth of private property,
including a purse and an ATM
card, reports state.

Nicholas Nickerson, of 1000
Weaver Dairy Road, was arrested
and served with a warrant at 501
Jones Ferry Road on a felony
charge of robbery with a danger

On Nov. 5, Carrboro police
reports state that three men
attacked a man by cutting him
with a knife and robbed him in a
fenced off to hold materials.
The other three phases will deal

Bland Simpson, director of the
creative writing program, said he
has no problem with the actual
construction. His only issue is the
scheduling conflicts, he said.
Some classrooms won't be usable
during parts of the project.
“You can’t renovate the entire
University without inconvenience
so, so what," Simpson said.
Greenlaw' was built in 1.970, and
in 1975 the University modified the
building to make it more accessible.
No other changes have been made
since then, Gillis said.
Kirby Stirland, a sophomore
journalism major, said the overall
appearance of Greenlaw is outdat
ed compared to nearby buildings.
She said the additions will improve
students’ learning experience.
“I’m new to UNC, and it seems like
an older building. More technology
in classrooms is always better you
have more capability to do things.”

Eight years after earning his law
degree from the University', he will

duty of supervising the student
The Office of the Dean of
Students announced Sauls’
appointment this week, and mem

his connection to UNC carried
great weight in the decision.
“He’s a product of this system,”
said Winston Crisp, senior associ

“In addition, he’s just an
extremely intelligent, extremely

The position has been vacant
since late July after former
Assistant Dean Dave Gilbert left to
pursue a similar job opportunity at
the College of William and Maiy.
In late July the Dean of Students
Office began forming a search com
mittee to fill the vacant position.
The committee was composed of
