On The Quads

image: Campus NewsA facelift for UT
With the help of nearly $30,000 from the University Theater Alumni Fund and the sweat equity of students and staff, the Reynolds Club's First Floor Theater has been converted to a black-box theater design. The renovated space now features removable seating and stage configurations that can be arranged to suit the tastes of directors and set designers. The first show to run in the revitalized space was Spiral-Bound Theater, from January 31 to February 3.

Super computers
A University team that includes fourth-years Andrew Huntwork and Emil Ong will be one of 60 competing in the 2001 World Finals of the Association for Computing Machinery's (ACM) Programming Contest, sponsored by IBM, March 7-11 in Vancouver. To make the finals, the Chicago team placed second out of 100 teams in the ACM's Mid-Central Regional Programming Contest on November 4. Teams had five hours to solve six problems using the C, C++, Pascal, or Java programming languages. The Chicago team solved five of the six problems-in under three hours.

Euphony debuts
December saw the introduction of a new student-produced publication. The inaugural issue of Euphony, a journal of literature, drama, visual art, and philosophy, featured the work of more than a dozen U of C undergraduates as well as nationally known poet David Lehman. Co-editors Stephen Barbara, a third-year, and Matthew Deming, a fourth-year, plan for the journal to be published semiannually.
