Trey Loughran, a junior polit
ical science and economics major
from Charleston, S.C., has
announced his candidacy for
student body president.
Loughran said he plans to
"build new traditions" in academic
excellence, cooperation and com
'munication, and the quality of
student life on campus.
"The student body president is
the whole student body, not just
one person," he said. "My goal is
to represent all the students on all

"We've always had widespread sets

here has been.for a very broad-based

The decision whether to have a
formal minor would rest with indi

outline requirements for the minor.

from department chairs has been

The quality of student seating for
basketball games in the Smith Center
is very different from other major
collegiate basketball arenas, but the
percentage of seats allocated to
students is average.
The Smith Center, because it was
funded entirely by private donations,
gives priority seating to patrons.
Most arenas at other schools were
built with student or public funds.
UNC students are given 1,600
lower-level seats, located mostly in
the corners and behind the basket on
one side, and over 5,000 seats in the
upper level, mostly behind the goal
and in the corner.
UNC students pay for their tickets
to both football and basketball games
through student fees. Several other
universities across the country give
students the option of paying for their

being on campus and serving the
University community, we feel we
should be top priority in terms of
supporting day care."
A new location that would serve
120 children is the top priority for
improvement of Victory Village,
Bridgers said. The center now serves
64 children, with 120 on a waiting
list, she said.
More immediately, the center
needs more money for maintenance
and salaries, Bridgers said.
The center receives $3,600 a year
from the University plus money for
maintenance needs on request.
The center is located in a wood-

Bridgers said. The center tries to offer
health insurance for employees,
Bridgers said, but an unexpected 60
percent increase in insurance rates hit
the center hard last fall.
The center had a deficit of $8,000
last year that came from "trying to
fund as many student families as
possible over the years."
To compensate, center officials had
