On The Quads

Tuition hike for 2000-2001
The University's college tuition for 2000-2001 will be $24,807. Room and board for first-years will be $8,070, bringing the total for freshman tuition and room and board to $32,877, a 3.86 percent increase from 1999-2000. On a related note, outside scholarships received by students will no longer be deducted from the recipients' University-aid awards.

College to study concentrations
Dean John Boyer, AM'69, PhD'75, wants to evaluate concentrations and determine how the discipline-oriented education can be improved. The College Curriculum Committee, chaired by Lorna P. Straus, X'53, SM'60, PhD'62, professor in biological sciences and organismal biology & anatomy, will organize student focus groups on concentrations throughout the next year.

U of C Center to open in Paris
The College, in cooperation with the Humanities and Social Sciences Divisions, is organizing a University of Chicago center in Paris. The purpose of the center is to facilitate undergraduate language and civilization programs in France, and to offer facilities and resources for graduate students and faculty working in Europe.

Computer equipment overhaul
Last summer, one-third of the computer equipment in the campus residence halls was upgraded. Now the remaining dorm computers will be replaced, resulting in a 50-50 ratio of Macintosh to PCs.

Two fraternities to go dry
In response to alcohol-related incidents in fraternities nationwide, the national chapters of Phi Delta Theta and Phi Gamma Delta have ordered all chapters to cease serving alcohol by July. The U of C's Phi Delts will turn off the tap, while Fiji plans to apply for a two-year extension.
